I did however have time to make this, which will console no one except for YBB. Sorry for the shitpost level execution (I’m no Byers) but I think it’s about what this idea deserves.

Probably going to Hell and/or jail for this.

And just as a more optimistic follow up – at our school we have switched from punitive reactions to drug use (like suspension) to free rehab and counseling. I’d also say that just about every student with drug problems I teach is desperate for therapy/counseling for mental health issues. More schools are trying to set up these wrap-around services in the actual school building.

I guarantee you haven’t heard of us. Turnspit was the name. We were a local Chicago band that was gaining popularity regionally, opened Riot Fest and a Rise Against show (among others). Could’ve made a real go at it, and I realized I loathed touring (among a myriad of other things that led to the end of the band). The fact that, the bigger a band gets, the more it feels like work and the less songwriting you get to do was a big part, too.

The other singer is a lot younger, loves being on the road and has a real chance to make a go of it. I’ve been the person who was held back by other band members’ disinterest when I was young and did not want to be the person who held anyone else back.

I also got divorced, came out as non-binary and bisexual and my musical tastes changed, and that sound didn’t interest me as much anymore. I’m much happier just writing and demoing at home, and playing the occasional show now.
