I absolutely despise services like fiverr.com. They create the impression that quality professional work can be had for a pittance. This serves to make it hard for freelancers trying to make a living to get paid what they’re worth.
But it looks like things like this are going to be around for a while. So if you can’t beat ‘em, you can always lump it. Or something.
So I put some thought into what I could do that would actually be worth only five dollars. Meanwhile, I’ve been complaining lately about how bland and uninspired so much of the music the kids listen to is. Also, what’s up with all the god-awful names bands have these days?
Then it hit me: Why not wrap the chocolate of declining economic mobility around the peanut butter of my discontent?
I am proud to announce my Fiverr gig – for $5 I will tell you if your band name sucks! My goal is to prevent anyone who is starting a band to enter the world with some silly monicker like Arctic Monkeys or Imagine Dragons. So let’s spread the word and put a stop to terrible band names once and for all!
