man that term cracks me up "peacing out" never gets old and always remains hilarious, especially how you just put it

Steve Henderson 01/31/07 10:08 AM

Wow, that sucks.

jhennis 01/31/07 10:29 AM

ahaha deported.

classic

ParisInFlames55 01/31/07 10:41 AM

wow. what a shitty thing to happen. good luck getting that mess cleaned up.

joshuagilbert 01/31/07 10:45 AM

he can marry my sister if he wants.

tacosforcharles 01/31/07 10:51 AM

Yeah this is kinda old news. It's sad though, I loved thier EP (mostly because Aaron Marsh produced it. haha). So I hope this gets sorted out and he comes back.

TheJon 01/31/07 11:00 AM

You make it sound like they tracked him down & shipped him out of the country.

He went home to Guatemala for the holidays & while he was gone his student visa was cancelled & he wasn't allowed back into the country.

It's a really shitty situation... Estates is a phenomenal band with a fantastic ep & a really great live show & they had a lot of touring lined up. Hopefully they'll pick back up where the left off this fall.

Jon.

This sucks, I love Estates, they remind a lot of Copeland.

01/31/07 11:23 AM

Yeah, wrong link.

garlicgirl1210 01/31/07 11:31 AM

wow. that sucks. hope he can clear things up somehow.

foreverDOWN 01/31/07 11:39 AM

What Jon wrote is true. Deported is a word with mostly negative connotations. I think that perhaps someone that works for AP.net should re-write this post. His visa expired and he's not allowed another for the time being. The rest of the guys in Estates are working on this situation and they could definitely use your support.

fedhed7 01/31/07 12:18 PM

Wow :(

StevieShotgun 01/31/07 12:28 PM

A) fuck you

B) Ummm maybe he should try to become a citizen.

reid 01/31/07 03:26 PM

franc's visa did not expire. he was here on a student visa, and while he was home visiting family for the holidays, a certain person at the college he was attending filed paperwork that canceled his visa. becoming a citizen is not a cheap process. it's quite lengthy and costly ordeal. he'd love to be here in the states, as his friends and music are here. he's not some free-loading kid. he's working on getting back here. legally, of course.

haha, i wondered how long before I got the "love it or leave it" argument from some white trash kid from the middle of nowhere.

No thanks, I prefer to stay here and try to make it a better place. I'm willing to suffer to be closer to family, friends, etc.

But if you think I stay here because our government rules, i like paying lots of taxes to support shit I could give a rats ass about, crappy record labels like Drive Thru, or because we have ridiculous laws (drugs, prostitution, etc) you are mistaken.

reid 01/31/07 05:48 PM

yeah, it does suck. it sucks for all the guys in the band, it sucks for all of us friends of his, and it really sucks for him. his life was here. he'd lived here for quite some time and had a nice life happening. he was between semesters when his student visa was canceled. i don't even know when the next time i see him will be.

It's a difficult process for sure. I was born overseas to an American citizen and I am going through so much crap right now to become a citizen. I've been a legal resident since we moved here when I was eight months old. It's ridiculous. I finally was approved to apply for citizenship and now I get to take a test and shell out a lot of money. Sigh.

To be fair, your country is shit.

JOKES.

Ours is worse.

thewebguy 02/01/07 07:18 AM

to everyone saying he should just 'become a citizen'..

getting citizenship in the US is about the hardest and most expensive thing you can try to convince the government to let you do. it takes literally years and thousands of dollars. it is far easier and cheaper to do it the black market way.

also, not everyone who comes to the US even wants to be come a citizen (note: not being a citizen does not make one an 'illegal', no matter what Fox says). a lot of people want to keep their citizenship in their old country and use other means such as visas to stay in the US, which is perfectly reasonable.

Inside joke. But that being said...

I'm quite serious. I included Drive Thru in the post as a joke, but you have to admit they are pretty bad.

But I meant all of it. Just the rest more than that part of it.

Actually eating paint chips is not bad for you unless you live in a house built before 1978 when they were still using lead paint.

But then, who the hell lives in a house built before 1978!!

I mean...unless you are from a total shithole like New Jersey or something.

You however clearly ate a lot of SOMETHING as a kid. Dude here's a hint...when you have "man boobs" it's time to go on a diet.

hey, I was one of the first to step up and say this is bullshit. Before the redneck jumped on me for treading on his beloved country.

That being said, you need to chill out a little bit. I mean, did our argument really make you feel that much worse? dry your crying eyes.

no, it didn't make me feel worse. it angers me. franc is a real-life friend of mine. he's not currently allowed into the country. i'm quite pissed off about this whole ordeal, as i can imagine tim and andy feeling the same way, too. or anyone who knows franc, for that matter.

grow up.

StevieShotgun 02/03/07 12:27 PM

if an argument on a message board angers you, you my friend need to get a life.

I like to argue for kicks, but i certainly never get angry.

Grow up? what the hell does that even mean. you are on an internet message board populated by 15 year olds. THIS is who you spend your quality time with and you are telling ME to grow up. If you want to make an ordeal out of this, drop me a line and I'd be happy to accomodate you.
