i think we'd just like you to explain why getting stoned is inherently bad, especially if they're student of the month

My sister had a 3.5 and my parents would still get pissed at her for drinking.

I'd argue that there's far more to going to school than just getting a degree. Most of what I wrote agrees with most of this anyways. I have no clue on why or what made you want to join a band, but it's pretty clear that you're more than some kid who wants to get into a van and tour for the sake of it, you're a pretty damn good musician in a pretty good band that had the potential in getting big, and has the potential of getting bigger.

My main point was that tour is you wanna, but at least have a solid plan. Secondly, parents can be as proud as they want, but preachy internet attitude grates me.

Anyways, I feel like I said all that I wanted to, and that i'm afraid this is gonna escalate into me sounding like I'm shitting on this kid/getting into an argument.

Maybe there is. I'm still a socially awkward turd. I don't have a solid plan. If my band breaks up, maybe I'll join a new band, or become a crew member, or record. Or maybe I'll work a shitty office job and work my way up the miserable ladder of 'success'.

And maybe I am an alright musician, but I've been playing in bands for 13 years. I know tons of people who are far more talented than I am that got sucked into real life and don't even pick up a guitar anymore. I definitely was just a kid who wanted to get in a van and tour. Soup and I went on our first tour when I was 17.

I guess I just don't really agree with the 'standard'. I have no issues with people willing to take the same risk that I have and I don't agree with the general condescension towards those who aren't doing the 'real life' thing.

Proud parents can be obnoxious. On or off the Internet. Like my dad who tells everyone he meets while trucking about my band and that I have a 'new fan' in whatever city. Brandon is lucky to have parents who support him so much.

EDIT: I should also note that I don't agree with the condescension in the other direction either.

I honestly think that this is the only thing that people really seem to have a problem with Bran/Vito doing, though.

Especially when those parents associate my son with drugs just because he's musician. You have a problem with that as well I'm sure ;)

the way to battle condescending people is not to be just as condescending. that's petty.

I don't understand why you can't just say "no, he doesn't do drugs" instead of being condescending about it and making it a you against them situation where you're hostile towards people who do do drugs. There's no point in it.
