    "Cuz I like to drink and definitely 420..."

    No kidding?

    Wow. I thought I was good at writing a long rambling sentence but this is taking it up a whole 'nother level.

  5. Looks like everybody else already posted my answer. You should meet with Tad but only to explain punctuation.

    I particularly enjoy the gibberish leading into an apparent complaint in the first part of the ad about "all they want to do is get f***** up" and then the latter half of the ad is the "I don't mind people drinking cuz I like to drink every now and then definitely 420"

    Not, as you might say, a consistent and rational pairing, but then, the gibberish does lead one to believe that the latter is perhaps ruling the day here. Or we have one of those fine folks who think that they "handle it well" and only the people around them get foshizzled up (which I assume is what all those asterisks are hiding) and they are seek others of high-minded high&drunkitude like themselves to band with.

    So I guess you should call if you drink some and smoke dope a lot, but in no way ever get floundered up (another possible interpretation) while doing so. If you brought a bag of punctuation along with the carrots I'm pretty sure it would get mis-used in all sorts of ways.

    That's almost as bad as having your task bar on the side as oppose to the bottom!;)

    Seriously though, talk about a "stream of (heavily altered) conciosness", that guy went off! Something tells me that based on the way he writes adds, he's not a very structured individual and that lack of structure is probably reflected in his music.

    Avoid Tad. Either he is in a full blown manic episode, or he over indulged on ADHD meds.

    I would pass. There's no way I could be in a band with a guy who doesn't believe in punctuation.
