    Things have changed.

    Feels like he's done like 6 tours capitalizing off this record's nostalgia.

    Wouldn't you? You go to school to be an accountant, you don't stop doing math just cause time passed.

    Would you keep doing remedial math instead of trying to learn new things? This guy's career has tanked so all he does is just bask in the nostalgia of the one album that people liked 10 years ago. More power to him, I guess.

    I think we've also truly jumped the shark on "VIP packages" if a band this small is charging for a meet-and-greet.

    Do I get paid and make a living doing the remedial math? Cause yes, I would. Let people pay the bills working hard at things they've made. No one tells you what job you can and can't do. Being a musician is hard, life is hard, work is hard. Fuck people that get mad at musicians for putting food on the table. Star Wars still makes money for George Lucas. That's how it works when you make something, this double standard for musicians is ridiculous. I'm getting so tired of it.

    Damn, this album is ten years old? I still remember hearing poison like your own for the first time like it was yesterday.

    I remember seeing these guys in Lexington, KY with Quiet Drive I think my freshman year back in 07. It was a good show but I haven't listened to them in years and completely forgot about them. Can't believe that much time has passed.
