That's the beauty of art and entertainment: none of it is needed.

Kind of a shitty thing to say to a bunch of people that waited just as long and didn't get a single copy. There were less than 5 in my entire state.

You sound like an obsessed ex girlfriend when you talk about what Mark and Travis "need." Let it go dude. They're moving on without you.

Couldn't agree more. Professional musicians getting paid for releasing music seems like a pretty easy concept to grasp for me. The issue for a lot of people here seems to be the integrity of the...

I promise you that Mark and Travis would be less than thrilled to see some of the things you've said in their defense. We get it, you want to keep what was great about the band and their legacy...

An act of war? Dude, you just chastised someone for speaking in hypotheticals but you speak in complete hyperbole. Nothing about this is as tragic and socially complicated as a war.

I agree with everyone else that this easily could have been the only video for it. I can appreciate the first one for it's place in the album campaign, but this is too genuine to fail.

What do you think "mall rebellion" means? I took it as a reference to a demographic of young music listeners that, whereas they can relate to the angst and the stylistic image of a slew of nameless...

I don't understand how a band that makes their music available at Hot Topic and sells shirts that say CULT on them is any different than the mall rebellion and merchandise designed to scare or piss...

I guess dude. I think we've really exhausted the subject. Nothing you just said was new information for our conversation. When you add things like "etc" to a list of costs or say they are "more or...

Depends. Why does a company target young people in the first place?

Do those kids truly, truly want to raise awareness and help or do they just want the same shirt they saw the guy from Anberlin...

Definitely don't. If you've seen them do good in the world and believe that their company is making a difference, absolutely do not let other people's opinions of their work stop you from supporting...

My guess is that Brian isn't showing up on set for the video, so Nate would be filming separate parts with extras or actors to be edited into the video later. Hence no mention of Brian Wilson.
