As shitty as this situation is for a lot of people, I hardly think it's appropriate to wish death upon someone for not being able to follow through with an overly ambitious record release. Not only that, but someone you don't even know. Sure you should get your $50 back, but come on.

I realize (I hope) you were probably exaggerating, but that's still a pretty fucked up thing to say.

probably the lamest post I've ever seen on AP

Wait...is this about Last Call or the fucking Blink pre-orders?

Last Call situation: oh fucking well, shit happens.

Blink situation: dude needs to get on the ball with the shit.

I remember a while back he deleted his facebook now its active again

http://www.facebook.com/#!/rjcrowderschaefer

people should start messaging him asking wtf his deal was with this release
It's been up for about a month; obviously people weren't either aware of it, or just don't care anymore.


I feel like as someone who preordered this (even though I got my money back) I still deserve an explanation. It's incredibly shitty.

I guess you missed the Ace Ventura reference.

assuming he was being a little facetious, but the quote about becoming an english lit teachers and blowing his brains out has turned me off to a band i haven't even heard. did you know there are actually people who play music primarily/solely because they love music? some are even teachers, cops, nurses, shoe salesmen...

pretty ignorant.

and some people write computer programs for fun. Some people do it for a living. Music was their livelihood, snd MTS fucked that up for them. It's not ignorant to be pissed off over lossing your career because of someone elses mistakes, and frankly your pretty ignorant for accusing him of being ignorant for it.

I guess I don't know details (my buddy bought the house show) but shouldn't action be taken with kickstarter over this. Seems like its a contract of sorts. Dude was so quick to complain and ask for a hand up, then honestly no return.....AP.net, you guys should do some journalism regarding this, kind of said that a favored band could take advantage of fans like this...
jesus fucking christ i have always hated ace enders. guy is a douche.

why do we crucify mightier than the sword but we turn the other way with this asshole's antics?

thanks for the pretty pointless, reactionary post. i expected no less.

i had a point - you seemed to completely miss that. I wasn't calling him ignorant for being pissed - i don't even know if that's possible - i think being pissed about something implies subjectiveness.

Like i said, I ASSUME HE WAS BEING FACETIOUS - but the quote rubs me the wrong way. sounds like a guy saying if he can't play music for a living his whole life, and is forced into a "normal" job (i.e. teacher), he will kill himself.

Yeah having your career ripped away from you by this douche bag was probably the highlight of his life. Dude is forced to give up his career, livelihood, and dream, and your mad cause he's bummed about that? Why should he be pumped to change jobs. He had his dream job, and he lost it.
