Anonymous asked: Alright... in checking out the weekly posts from January 2014 to present, I noticed some albums from certain labels aren't listed, while other albums (from the same labels) are. Does that mean the albums that weren't listed for their given release week just didn't sell enough to warrant a listing? Just trying to compare sales numbers for smaller bands for a blog post. :)
When I look at the sales of MBN, I go by two kinds of charts: One is called “Top Current Artists”, which is basically like the Billboard 200, and “Top New Artists” which consists of bands/artists that haven’t made the top 200. Sometimes people ask why certain albums aren’t included, it’s either because it didn’t sell enough or it’s just because it didn’t appear on the specific charts I look at, though it may appear on a different one. Hope that answers your question and sorry it took a bit to answer.

Sure, ask away!
there’s a special place in hell for men who take pride in measuring a woman’s worth by her metal cred

For such an “open minded” group of people, tumblr is the most unsafe place ever for people who have differing opinions. The number of people who have been bullied so badly they’ve had to delete is disgusting and pathetic. If by being open-minded you mean “let’s repeatedly preach tolerance but then have zero tolerance for people that we have deemed evil for ignorant and misinformed reasons” then yeah, this is a great place.
