Anyone know why the Matt Good subreddit went private?

Recommended Posts

Scary tweet.

I hope for everyone's sake there is a positive resolution to all this. To me the best case would be MG reaches out to whoever he should apologize to and does so genuinely. Also commit to getting some help and being a better person. That would be a positive example to set and allow some good to come from this.

Less important: I've listened to a couple of MG's songs in the past couple weeks. Just a couple. I've found myself still appreciating the music and having a connection with it.

Tricky thing is that apologizing and admitting guilt could make him more vulnerable to potential harassment lawsuits or whatnot from whomever.  But not really addressing/owning anything means there will always be an elephant in the room.  He's in a tough spot.

I also hope he seeks help for his own sake at least.

hopefully Tribus sees the light of day. Considering he shut down his IG and basically his site.  Really want to hear some new music and get a proper tour for Moving Walls as well.

I don’t think there will be a proper Moving Walls tour. Through previous posts, it seems like it was more of “let’s cut our losses and move onto the next album cycle.”

I am hopeful and would very like to hear new music and see a new tour as well.

I checked out for a while and took a break from the music but I'm at the point where I would like to listen to MG's music again. I apparently missed the new material he shared. Didn't see it on his website when I looked today.

I agree there won't be a Moving Walls tour ever. Gotta move on from it at this point.

Sadly, I can’t keep enjoying the art for art’s sake, including live performances. It’s a done deal for me and there's no going back. I’m at the point where I want to get rid of all my Matthew Good merch and burn it.
I was around when he shared new material, but I chose not to listen to it.

Edit: You're not allowed to air grievances or diss Matt in here?

I am looking at the RickDalton's pictures above. In the past, I would have admired it and thought it looked nice. But now, I can't help it. It looks more to me like a wall of shame.

He released 3 new songs and they are awesome.  I grabbed them while they were up.  DM me and I can put them into a Google Folder to share with you.

Actually, the links are still live from where I DLd them.  Thanks to @RickDalton for posting this on the Tribus thread, which is now locked.

I would gladly love your MG merch. I would pay for shipping too. Just let me know.

still wish i could track down few singles i'm missing

Songs have come in here and there and I still enjoy them. We'll see what (if) future work feels like. But old stuff just has too much of my life wrapped into it and for the most part I'd separated art/artist so it's been pushed more to fully separated is all.

Sure it's all yours, foats. Expect a gigantic box of all his CDs and MG merch. Shipping is on me. It's my treat.

Whoa, whoa, whoa--let's not get carried away now... other users might want some merch *nudge*nudge*wink*wink 😜

 

So while my not-so-subtle hint at acquiring a slice of this pie is completely sincere... I just want to say that I'm sorry 😔

Personally, my brain could earn a gold medal in gymnastics for the amount of exceptions and rationalizions it took to maintain a fair amount of my Matt Good fandom... but reading through this thread, it's a little annoying to witness all the vitriol that's been thrown your way, simply because your core principles and values render you unable to enjoy something you once loved very, very much. To have an artist who's no doubt left an indelible mark on your character become a point of personal grief... that's a pretty disappointing transition, to say the least.

So yeah... kinda feel a bit wrong in wanting to gain from what you, in effect, are compelled to give up. Regardless, I'm happy you're still a part of the community ;D

Well since you asked OriginalSpecies, I have one last copy of the Matthew Good notebook, pen and lanyard from the his solo tour VIP soundcheck.

I also have a White Light Rock & Roll Review CD, with no CD booklet, and an Our Lady Peace-MG tour VIP lanyard. I don't know if you want that.

PM me your details and they're yours. That's all I have for extras. Thanks for saying that.

Thanks @patrickjnixon.

Hollis has definite LOES vibes. I like how layered it sounds. A Corridor of Trees, not my favorite kind of track but I like the instrumentation. Lost And Found Kids, interesting to hear the vocals through like a phaser kind of effect. Liked the slow build to the electric guitar. Kinda wanna hear more 😶 ....

The thing is, throughout my life pretty much everything and everyone I've cared about, besides my wonderful parents, has turned out to be a lie.  I was taught to believe phony stories about Jesus and God, I believed in Santa Claus, the baseball heroes from my youth whose posters I had on my wall turned out to be steroid cheaters, the He-Man toys and stories i loved turned out to just be a way for a corporation to make cash from plastic and TV cartoon ads, and now Disney is pimping my beloved Star Wars like a whore, not to mention good friends who abandoned me all along the way.

Now it turns out Matt Good was a lie, at least a lot of it.  But how do I abandon the songs I took through my teens and 20's and beyond?  If I abandon everything I ever loved I'm left with nothing.  I can be disappointed with the artist but I can't give up the art, it's too much a part of me, and too painful.  If I can't believe in Jesus anymore at least these old songs can give me comfort when I need it.   I need some kind of illusion in my life to protect me from all the disillusion.  Sorry to the people he's hurt, i'm still with you.
