pob-wotw - Ego and why we don't have one, we lost it under a mask.

Me, me, me, I, I, I - said the singer to the producer. There is a lot of ego in music, do we have egos in the Stick Up Boys, definitely. DO we let them get in the way, definitely not. Lets face it we are heavily branded in all departments, let look at how deep our ego goes by keeping a running score for each section using our Custom built "Stick Up Boys ego meter"

Logo - Ego meter 8/0
Nice, all our faces are in it, clear as day. Everything we do has our logo in somewhere and therefor our faces are ever present.

Music - Ego meter 10/10

You will find we say "Stick Up Boys" in a lot of our songs, none more egotistical than this song. Talking about yourself constantly in a song? That must register pretty high on the ego trip.

Artwork - Ego meter 9/10

All our artwork is custom drawn to ensure it includes a picture of us! I mean this is us holding the whole work ffs.....(NB also available as an NFT in Rising Star game)

Leaving it to you.jpg

Videos - Ego meter 9/10

I mean in this video we got 30 look alikes to look like us....who else does that?

Gifs - Ego meter 10/10

Thats right we had to make custom gifs as the others ones do not have us in them....

Additional - we even have our own comic! Ego meter 10/10

You can see it here in under 15 seconds....issue 2 is out next month....

Merchandise - Ego meter 7/10

You can even buy our faces on mugs and tshirts and things, this is pretty standard for our industry and does build income.

Construction kits - 8/10

IF having our own music heavily branded we also offer the option to sound like a Stick Up Boy...

Designing your own Branded Ego Meter - 10/10

I mean we had to have this custom made just for this post....

So do you think we have an Ego? Ego meter says 62/70...does that make us egotistical? It is funny writing this as if you knew us you would know we are not egotistical at all, one of the reasons we have the masks essentially is to shy away from the limelight. We just want to make the best music we can, the best artwork we can and best video we can. Do we argue sometimes yes, because we want to make it as good as we possibly can. Do we listen and respect each other, yes we do. We lost our Ego I think when we threw our faces under a bus and replaced them with masks. When we have masks on, we just want to have fun, bring people a smile and some good times. Anyone could be a stick up boy, "you could be a Stick Up Boy too" (the chorus from a new song coming soon..... )

Big love

the Stick Up Boys

You don't have an ego because you lost it under a mask. That's beautiful. I feel like I got to know you guys a little bit after reading this post. Your personality, but mostly because my kids lost it when they listened to your song.

I became a willing hostage to my 2 and 3-year-old sons dancing around. My 2-year-old spent the better part of 10 minutes pointing out every feature in your logo telling me about each member in broken new human English. My 3 year old tried to help me understand my younger son by translating. His translations didn't help, but I was able to piece together the members of your group:

  • The smiley one who always likes to eat
  • The scaredy one who pew-pews out of his eyes
  • And the ninja ghost that fights evil

I can't stop smiling. I like your music. Thank you for sharing it. You have little humans as new fans.

I'll definitely check out your videos on youtube. I look forward to it. We have dance night almost daily. It consists of elite human beings that just arrived on our planet not too long ago. Elite means one is potty trained and the other is almost there. It doesn't look at all like we're having convulsions.

I read a quote recently about all content creation being egotistical, can't remember where it's from, but it has stuck with me for maybe a week or so now. I suppose with the masks and all, you guys would place lower on the ego-scale than some of those social media 'influencers' out there.

That was a very fun read and all the best for the competition this week!

I worked in the arts for a long time now and I think you have to have some ego to drive you for sure! I think when we were younger maybe it was different but now we just relish in being creative and to drive each other to be so. As we have come out of the studio for the first time ever I think we are also trying to spread that love of creativity as we go!
Thanks very much for the support!

I enjoyed the music "Paty in my backyard" very much

it is amazing how you guys lose your ego in a mask

I have always wondered why I know now

And those NFTS, and gifs that the rest of the stuff you put yourselves in is amazing, even though we still never get to see your faces

Maybe one day, you guys will reveal the faces behind the mask

This is a beautiful concept for this week's contest. I wish you three luck

Thank you very much, masks are interesting things as does the concept of remaining anonymous. I guess it is like acting as you are someone else. Thank you for reading and listening it is greatly appreciated! Eat !PIZZA and listen to more music.

Nice post, after I read it, while I was listening to the song I was thinking about the frase "we lost it under a mask", well, in the moment I don't know how to express some of the reflections that I'm having now, but I say thank you for the opportunity to reflect!!

A very dynamic post, this is the first time I read one of yours. If you lost your ego for whatever reason (wearing a mask), I think it's a positive thing and if I understood correctly, you have the same opinion.
