I beg to differ, but if you went through a bad experience with him, then I could understand where you're coming from.

I've met him multiple times and have had a number of conversations with the...

Also, no one ended up pressing charges.

In terms of consequences, I think the public backlash...

This is an interesting song, I might like it more than both "What Went Wong" and "Letters To God".

I enjoy the raw feel to it and the stream of consciousness vibe from Tom's lyrics.

I don't see the...

I think it's more rational to discuss the possibility of it than to just immediately look to call Tom an asshole or an idiot for what he's doing, and make jokes about the guy. It might show more...

It seems like Tom has been attempt to fill some sort of void in his life. I feel for Tom because I'm presuming he has Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

The whole "I could record the album in and...

I still have the dream of owning a small record store. I'd want to get creative with cost-efficient strategies as well as being smart with what is worth having in stock.

My source a few months back told me they were planning to record an EP and release it before Warped Tour. There were also rumors of them looking for a new drummer.

Buttons is a really good dude. We played a show together a while back. I've gone to a few parties at his place too.

People criticize for the sake of criticizing. There's some fun in it. It's not as fun to appreciate something for what it is. If anything, I guess these days what makes something good is if you can...

Agreed.

What sucks is that some of the hot garbage they have supporting them actually bring a bunch of kids out who in turn spend a ton of money on DGD merch and what not. I hated every opening act...

Heard the 60 second clips, they've taken their overall musicality to another level, beyond just "post-hardcore". It felt like listening to a more grown up and well traveled version of Happiness....

Bands play based off what their agents negotiate with promoters. It's part of the business, whether it's mainstream or "scene". As a band, it would be bad business to just play an extra half hour as...

I brought it up to both Mingus and Feerick on last year's tour. They soon added Zoloft halfway into the tour.

Personally, if a ticket for DGD is only $15-$20 and they're playing clubs in front of...

What about when Scott Raynor was let go? I say this band his been in shambles for 17 years.

Things would have been sooooo much better if he stayed in the band and Travis never joined, am I right?...

Yup. We can at least among a few of us is encourage the band with thoughtful, deep, analytical discussion about their music and careers. That would help make up for all the "scene" kids who either...

Ironic.

When I mentioned to Kurt Travis how Death Star and Happiness are now considered the band's best albums among fans, Kurt said something to the extent of, "Really? I'm like Van Gogh, I'm only...
