  1. Any conceivable path to forgiveness should not include getting to have your platform back and make money off of it.

    I feel this would be unforgivable for a lot more people if she was actually killed. But like, that’s what he wanted, so I don’t get why he gets a pass because he’s extremely lucky it wasn’t a real hit man.

    I cannot stress enough that is so deeply traumatic as a survivor of a violent, emotional abuser to see so many people going to bat for some fucking crocodile tears mother fucker because he says he saw the light. They’re all the same. They all sound the same. He doesn’t deserve to have that platform.

    Right like oh he just TRIED to get her killed but he was thankfully too dumb to do it right so we're gonna celebrate him now? It's not as if he failed to get her killed because of some moral compass or change of heart in the final hour. The attempted murderer still wanted her murdered at the end of the day but oh it's cool because he failed - not because he decided to spare her but because he's bad at attempting to murder people. Like naaaw dude. Ridic

    Right? I think I said this forever ago in here but he is only able to get a "2nd chance" because he got lucky/fucked up what he was trying to do. If it had gone as planned, he'd be looking at life and this wouldn't even be a discussion.

    That’s how god works though. He stepped in and helped Tim make that mistake so he could be saved.

    I rarely comment on this site, but I just had to with Tim.

    When I saw HeartSupport had partnered with AILD. They were expecting people to flood to the site over the big news, and I was thinking, "And some people who supported you would cut ties with you and go find another mental health foundation that doesn't support abusers to support instead."

    They probably haven’t ever changed this, but I wish Real Friends would remove Brand New from their influences on their Facebook page.

    Honestly, bring it up to them on twitter or something. They probably don't even remember that's there and I'd imagine they'd change it considering their past actions re: accountability.

    Shameless self promotion o'clock again but catching up on these last few pages, this seems like as good a time as any to bring back this piece I wrote about the road to redemption, what it looks like and what "good enough" is, since a lot of questions it tries to answer have been asked in here:

    As someone whose old bandmates used to refuse to transpose songs they'd written FOR OUR BAND to suit my voice because it "makes them less fun to play" I feel for this person on a spiritual level

    throw down or move the capo and its the same song in a different key, don't understand how changing a key makes a song less fun haha.

    Because the original was open strings with some ridiculous custom tuning and blah blah blah blah blah honestly it's what I get for getting into a band with a bunch of prog fans

    I know a little something you won't ever know Prestigious

    Being prog fans and probably fetishists of "technical skills" explains it, my original thought was, no offense, that that person just didn't want to admit they didn't know what transposition was or only learned one keys worth of chords lol

    lmao no, I won't impugn my old bandmates in terms of musicianship: they were all very talented. With the exception of my old bass player they were abusers and apologists, maybe, but talented musicians.

    One of these girls is my friend. I'll never forget years and years ago when she told me what was going on how naive we were - we both had no clue what it really meant and how predatory he was about to become. He is a monster.

    He is a monster and everything those women are saying about him is true. They’re blocking him because he’s a toxic abuser that will get back in contact and threaten to sue. Fuck him.
