Are you re-evaluating your life or future? I think I would question going to work, wasting time at home, the way I spend money, how I think about small annoyances, …

Sorry if I gave off that impression. I struggle with these thoughts, even without any known illnesses. I wonder how my outlook on things would change if I got a diagnosis like that. I guess it all depends on how content you are in life and how positive your look is on things.

I'd like to begin by saying I'm sorry you had to go through that. I'm in a band myself and I know how crappy it is when event organisers don't follow through on their promises. This is even worse.

That said, I'd like to play devil's advocate here and say you can't really expect anything else from a show that's basically 'reality tv' and uses both uplifting stories (the underdogs that win big) and ridicules the weak at the same time. If they would have to put in writing that they will not make a mockery of you (or any others), they'd basically have no more contestants. They need some acts to go wrong, to hold on to their format. Not everyone can be a winner. I know that doesn't change anything about the situation. I applaud you for having the courage to make this public statement!

Sidenote: I listened/watched some of your videos. Cool stuff guys!!

I admit it's easy to say it may have been naive, in hindsight, but I'm sure you made the correct decision at the time. Especially since they approached YOU! They should be ashamed.
