I asked the leak question! Appreciate the answers!

It's always interesting to tap into your train of thought on issues like that.

Either way, songs rule and it'll probably be my AOTY.

Nobody made any assumptions. We're learning from other peoples encounters with him and forming opinions. Nobody is offering to be a consultant to Mixtapes.

Vegas, sorry. And the other bit I think i saw on twitter, someone saying something about "he did this yesterday too" or something of that. If I find it I'll link it.

Yes, twice isn't enough? And the jokes about cancer in Vancouver, and the blatant disregard on twitter all day, even after Maura made this statement.

Seems like enough to me.

From my understanding he's made this particular joke ever since this happened and then a few shows before this, he made some backhanded comment about cancer that Maura had to cover up for as well....

I'm not part of of today's youth and I'm happily married, so I can't really level with you there.

Also, this doesn't appear to be a one time incident with him. As made clear by my previous post and...

Your points are all valid. I'm the personality type that would say "fuck this" if I wasn't fully onboard with people in my band, which I've done (obviously we weren't at a level of mixtapes.)

I guess my biggest question in all of this is, what does this statement or her saying "no" during his rant, do?

Why not kick the guy out, quit and form another band? I know that Maura quitting...

I think Lancaster is great, but this just feels like Go Radio for me. I was really hoping for some more stripped down, alt country, acoustic stuff from him.

Maybe in time.

That isn't really the staffs fault though? They're voicing an opinion and that's all it is. I think Real Friends sucks and nobody on APnet took part in my decision making process.
