i think one of my new life goals is to make it to sxsw before i turn 30. after this year, i only have three more chances. help.
all i do is build walls, push everyone away, and run away from everything. anyone who tries to care, i do my best to get rid of.
i’m about to turn 26 and even though i apparently look 17, it’s really about time for me to accept this and stop being into unreliable piece of shit 21 year olds. you kids are the worst and i’m kinda trying to be an adult here maybe i guess.
Anonymous asked: Mike, I don’t know how often you get told or don’t get told this but regardless: you do a fucking kick ass job running all this social media. I can only imagine the amount of patience and tolerance you have plus a sense of humor to just brighten up people’s day. You do a great job at never letting anyone know you quite frankly aren’t in the mood to deal with it or are having a crummy day; hopefully these strangers on the web make you laugh. Everyone appreciates it, and appreciates you. Bro hugs
Hey! I’m super stoked you feel like that. It’s really cool and really encouraging to hear that someone gives a shit about it.
I say this a lot, but being responsive to people or answering questions or whatever is the absolute least we as a band could do to show how much we appreciate the people who are kind enough to listen to our band and interact with us. At this day and age, every single person who uses the internet is punched in the face repeatedly with media from hundreds and hundreds of bands constantly. The fact that anyone wants to give OUR band the time of day in a world where literally any band you can think of is pretty much accessible is a huge deal.
Using the internet as a tool to grow the band is great, but it’s something else entirely when you’re able to build real relationships with people who are into our music. It’s important for me as a human and us as a group to do whatever we can to make our mark and make people feel like this is more than just a band - you know?
We fucking love you guys. And we don’t just say that because it’s what you’re supposed to say. We say it because we mean it and because it means a lot than anyone cares about what we’re doing.
this was a really bad fucking idea. i don’t wanna be here anymore.
