    When I auditioned for Limp Bizkit (as a joke; I was already there anyway. I worked at GC so don't give me any crap), they told me I was too weird for their band. RIGHT ON!!! :D
     
  4. I really think that he trys too hard with his lyrics. He must be a pretty cool guy, but he trys so hard to squeeze SOMETHING out of his lyrics, it comes off like being plastic.

    As lame as the whole thing reads, it does put things in perspective when you consider that this is how everyone's livejournal/blog reads like. With all the melodrama, attempts at deep poetic thought and cheesy cliched conclusions there's a sort of comforting feeling in the whole "blog" culture, and this is no exception.

    When I think about how ***hole-ish what I said was, I'm a little torn. On one hand I don't think it's wholly undeserved, at the same time the voyueristic quality of this whole thread feels like a guilty pleasure. Like an "unauthorized" autobiography, you see his life through his eyes. And on one hand, it's :rolleyes: worthy, but a lot of what other people say on these things are :rolleyes: .

    Should I chuckle and poke fun at his psuedo-private thoughts and veiled bids for attention, or should I leave him be...seeing as he's human and all humans do this.

    Ahhh, the politics of exhibitionism.

    Awww. This completely changes everything. I simply can't bring myself to hate this guy's crappy music after reading his blog and seeing that he's got feelings, too.

    Or something.

    My GC buddies think he just toured around and stole everyones cool chops and called it a "try out". They said he made you sign a contract which basically said whatever your played they had the rights to??

    Am I supposed to be impressed with that? Typical Freshman poetry 101 fodder. I know some English professors that would love to get that pap on a paper. Oh well, wealth trumps intellect every time.

    :meh:
