Tensions in the Band - Maybe The End :(

February 1st, 2007

Last night at practice, a conversation occurred that The Setbacks may not be able to sweep under the carpet. Some things were said that has made one member of the band isolated from the rest, alone on an island of no respect.

I sincerely hope these words can be forgotten, for no apologies can take it back. I don't even think that I will ever be able to look this guy in the eye again. I know that the other guys feel the same way.

When you pour your heart and soul into a project, the happiness derived from it is indescribable. It's like your very essence becomes that much closer to reaching Nirvana (the state, not the band - and not the state as in the regional jurisdiction, I mean the actual state of well being - and by that I don't mean Maryland, whose slogan is 'The State of Well Being').

Anyways, I've wracked my brain trying to decide whether to reveal the offending words on such a public forum as our website. But the mission statement of The Setbacks has always been "Reveal All To Everyone At All Times". So as a result, I will now let the public decide if this is worth breaking the band up over:

Last night Chris Saracino, drummer for the Setbacks, revealed to the band that he thinks the movie Norbit looks awesome.

(pause for dramatic effect)

It's true. I will keep you all apprised of the situation. If this breaks up the band, this will be the place to read it.
