I was supposed to audition for a band this month. I liked their stuff, it was pretty simple, but had really catchy/edgy hooks. I was looking forward to it. But then one day after browsing around for more of their stuff on youtube, I found a video they did that was a total tirade against [INSERT UNNAMED SOCIO-POLITICAL AGENDA HERE]. Well, I just didn't want any part it. As I get older, I've come to realize that life's too short, and I want to spend my remaining years spreading joy, not hatred & discontent. So, I emailed the band leader back, and politely recused myself from the audition. I didn't give any specifics; I just tried to be as polite & tactful as I could.
