My hiatus from the blog was a result of a foray back into the nightlife world I had long since left behind. I tried my hand at promoting again and doing it my way while making moves to leverage my way into a position I’d had liked to be in(as this was the real reason I had come back in).
After a while, I found myself thoroughly disgusted. As little as a few years ago promotion was about actually bringing people and hot girls to a party and getting properly compensated for it. You were also thrown freebies like guest lists or bottle service as a thanks to those high value people that showed up.
The club/promotion crew that threw the event made money from anything extra they bought and the free publicity from the attention of attractive people made it more likely the average joe showed up to be properly entertained.
Now though, it has devolved into internet marketing ploys with dumb posts on social media to promote the event coupled with mass invites of entire friend lists on Facebook(never mind the fact that Facebook is dead as a showcase for lifestyle and the entirety of the crowd that actually does things migrated to Instagram). And of course the only people that showed up were other industry folks in an attempt to promote their own event and losers that have no business being out at night.
Your fatties, beta males, and low end groupies. Of course the average group of 18 year olds with nowhere to go too, but they aren’t conducive to the nightlife experience as they mob together and never separate as well as their extremely low tolerance for outsiders that normally changes by age 21 or if they have older friends in their groups(in which case it’s a mixed age group with the 18 year olds being brought in to keep it fresh). And of course these 18 year olds will never come back the second they turn 21 so it’s a consistently small market with no longer term return on investment.
If that weren’t enough to disgust you, let me continue. The people throwing these shows are of course insular and retarded in their single minded obsession with cheap puss and drama. It’s almost as if they perpetuate this bullshit in the name of authenticity. And the drama has moved up from gossip behind the scenes to upfront social media passive aggressiveness as if this was MySpace again in 2005.
And worth repeating again. There are no more trashy hot women frequenting these events. As little as a 2 years ago you could have gotten laid with a trashy 7 with a coke and MDMA habit while these days feel free to be sexually assaulted by 4s that seem to carry their weight irrespective of their coke and MDMA habit. FUCK! Thankfully I’ve long since migrated to fresher pastures for my sexual pleasure.
Anyone worth their salt has migrated to the upper end of nightlife or drowned in the stagnation. It’s a dead end game.
Advice for up and coming people into the nightlife scene:
- Skip the entry level bullshit. The underground doesn’t matter anymore. Underground connections don’t matter anymore either unless for slightly popular artists soon to get a following, equipment, or video work which is a long way from the starting line.
- Hit the high end venues.
- Only be seen with model level girls(and by extension only post pictures publicly of your own accord with model level girls). I’m still working on this one here mainly on the social media front.
- Watch your social media and hold your load in terms of blasting it until you get your shit right. Still working on this too.
- Make connections with people in the grey area(half in the underground and half out)
All the best,
