i'm far away right now and not able to help get this sorted as much as i'd like, but regardless of this situation and the actions of people involved (none of whom i personally know) a few of you would do well to show some empathy, put the boot on the other foot and imagine the hoo ha youd be making if this was your band. if you don't care then you don't care but these snarky attitudes are not cool, you're really embarrasing.
I'm actually with Bry on this. Apart from what Flo has said (and I've had nothing but good dealings in the past with you, Flo) none of us actually know what has happened. Rusty may be hugely unreliable when it comes to record/tshirt trading and selling (as well as having a questionable internet presence) but I think it's pretty unfair for a bunch of strangers to be like LOL HAVE FUN BEING STUCK.
This shit is when the internet makes everyone look like cunts, even innocent parties (of which there may be none)
Petty bitching and moaning makes you no better than the person you're protesting against. People have put in effort to book shows and now that's all gonna fall apart, ignoring the fact TA are stuck abroad and whether you hate them as people or musically that's kind of a shitty situation to be in.
Little boys a long way from home, boo fucking hoo. You pair are too nice/sappy/soft for your own good.
If the boot was on the other foot i'm sure many of the people commenting would (wo)man up and:
- pony up the dough and get another van/driver to salvage what dates they can.
- or hire a van for themselves and drive.
- or pool what money they have, find a a cheap hostel/friends place and have fun for a couple of weeks.
- phone home and beg to get the money for their flights to be changed.
The people involved here are not broke, it's priviledged/rich kids on euro holiday with no concept of sucking it up. So, rather than fix the situation they just whine on the internet about how their track record of being well behaved on tour is good. (Which is fucking hilarious given that they trade off the fact that at least one of them a notorious cunt, be it for "laughs" or otherwise.)
