I always think of performing and being in a band sort of like what it feels like to be in love, you know. There’s a comfort when you just start to know somebody and you’ve been together forever and you start looking like each other and dressing like each other. But, I think the part of love that’s so attractive and addictive is you know, that firing of chemicals and not knowing what the result is gonna be and what the feedback is gonna be, and, you know there are definitely nights where you know it’s a kin to the 5 years in a relationship watching Teen Mom on the couch with your partner that you dont feel like you have to shave your legs for anymore and then there are nights where it feels like your first date.

and yet people flock to defend him like he’s some kind of hero for saying what he did

Awesome article about SubSONiC and haters of SubSONiC.
