Hey nerds I worked pretty hard on this,
and I'm trying to help get more people on the platform. Maybe y'all want to read it? I am extremely vain but I think you'll agree with the premise.
Hey, kids/young adults who love standing in front of their amps & PA systems during performances:
PLEASE pay attention to the killjoys who tell you to get decent hardwearing earplugs / disposable classic foam plugs while playing.
Because living with tinnitus will start to ruin your life in a big way, and if tinnitus gets beyond tinnitus...well...yeah it's awful.

Time to go. Need to sort out something to eat.
