Yeah the details are definitely horrible, I didn't know all that either
Michael Cera Palin posted this today, detailing why they broke up which was because one of their members sexually assaulted someone.
A Note From MCP
More accurately, because one of their members was accused of sexually assaulting someone and the accuser later freely admitted that parts of their account were fabricated in order to imply that consent was not granted.
Yep he used to DM a friend of mine back in like 2015. We were in high school at the time and she was 17. Pretty creepy.
Wow I’d never heard about that Michael Cera Palin situation but they seem like decent people. Can’t imagine what that must have been like. They handled it really well though. Hope they’re able to get on with making music again.
I was about to post this in the Microwave thread but like... they're going on tour with Tiny Moving Parts. They're playing Ireland in a couple of weeks and last year I would have been incredibly stoked about this, but now... it kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth and makes me not want to have anything to do with Microwave's new record, which would, again, have been unthinkable a year ago. Dylan Mattheisen has faced essentially no repercussions for his actions and seeing TMP continue to tour with bands I thought would know better (M'wave, Free Throw, world's greatest dad etc.) is kinda just making me upset. Fuck sake.
My apologies, I didn’t read it all the way through before posting, but that’s an accurate description of what happened.
Had no idea about this. Really sucks but forget that noise. Throw them on the pile too.
Yeah that's the way it's gotta be I'm afraid. As much as Ioved What's Past is Prologue, I'm not tolerating support of this band anymore.
Yeah I just spent the weekend raving about the new Microwave album and now I feel like a complete idiot for it.
and my raising of the issue on Twitter alerted someone to the allegations against Dylan, sometimes you just don't see these things - it's OK
weren’t there allegations against a member of better off and they had a pretty pathetic statement about it taking his side?
there were allegations made against someone filling in for them on tour and they were pretty gross about taking his side and just being complete scum about it
pretty gross how they just came back this year and dropped an album like nothing happened, man.
Yeah well in their minds they did nothing wrong so it makes sense they’d behave that way. Just absolutely horrible.
I posted this in the Netflix thread but thought I’d put it here too? Surviving R kelly is now on Netflix for anyone who missed it
wtf @ Nick tagging that with #guncontrol ???
I’ve been watching that unfold. It’s rly sad. I hope something actually comes of this bc Nick is clearly a predator and hasn’t been held accountable at all. The video Aaron posted from house of carters is disturbing
Because they went and took Aaron’s guns apparently due to the claimed threat
I only say claimed bc aaron denies it and nick has a history of lying/being violent so idk what to believe there
was nick the backstreet boy in the family and aaron the younger brother? dudes little brother is out here calling him out on being a sex creep? big respect aaron
My soft spot for child stars who never stood a chance goes out to Aaron. Nick is an abusive sucky person, but I feel like he benefits from Aaron being such a mess that nobody takes him seriously. I think that's what troubles me the most about ppl like Aaron or Lindsay Lohan or whatever. They are not perfect themselves and are extremely vulnerable for abuse and being taken advantage of because everybody discredits them due to their erratic behavior
I feel like Nick has had allegations brought up over and over for years. At least within the fandom circles I used to follow before understanding things the way I do now. Sketchy vibes, weird stories, etc. I am having a very hard time reconciling the nostalgia and joyful memories I have about BSB with what I kind of knew but never really understood was happening behind the scenes. I am starting to understand how B* N* fans had such mixed feelings. Like, burn abusive cycles and abusers to the ground. But how much of their art is them?
Sorry, not asking that seriously - just questions I'm thinking to myself. I'm likely going to remove all BSB music from my phone and just be done, though. I can't give money and visibility to something like that. Not in 2019. Not when I am who I am now.
Fucking masterful spin doctors, though. Masterful.
So I'm realizing that I knew about these two years ago when they happened - I clearly blocked it out.
Shame on me. :(
