Thats cause Nolan is a nice guy. I met him once and he was the coolest dude ever!


Also, I told him to bring mansions on a TBS tour, hopefully he follows suit.
That was your question? Haha I liked that. I've been refreshing on my Mansions this past week haha

I love Brand New. Deja Entendu is one of my favorite records ever. With that said, I think Daisy is one of the worst albums I've heard in my entire life. My opinion, it's ok if you, John or the whole world disagree. With that said, I think there's a possibility that John hasn't liked either, just as same as a possibility that he does like it. But who cares, after all? Why look for endorsement about something you enjoy? If you enjoy it, it's all that matters.
At least you're eloquent about it. Though I strongly disagree, my point isn't really that John has to like it. But (and this is going to sound pretentious as all get out) as someone in a band, I always try to keep up on my friends' music and listen to their progressions and regressions. I think they do the same for me.

And I mean we're talking polar opposites. My band is sort of like A Day To Remember and some of my friend's music is like Dave Matthew's Band.

I feel like real artists are reflected so much in their music, a friend could listen to a CD all the way through just to catch up with their friend almost. I don't know, maybe I'm getting too lofty here.

I don't think it's pretentious at all.

But put yourself on Nolan's position. If he thinks it sucks, would he talk about it openly on formspring?

I enjoyed reading his answers... find it addicting in a way, have a hard time pulling myself away from reading every question.

I really enjoy Adam n John's honesty

Nice to see him answer this one. It always made me so angry on here when everyone stated as fact that John wrote that whole record. I never saw anywhere where anyone in the band said that he did. So that untruth can now die. lol..

did you write the majority of TAYF lyrics?
no. it was a collaboration with adam. we spent a lot of time talking about our lyrics and using each others lyrical ideas and it eventually got to a point where it was hard at times to say who was responsible for what.

yeah, I want Browder to get exposure! He is a true musician so It would be nice to see yanno? He answered the question too (not the exact one I asked though): "what's your relationship with the band mansions? any possibility of browder joining tbs for tour?

i love those guys. i would be super psyched to have them on a tbs tour."

"Unwell" and "Curacao Blue" is probably my favorite Mansions songs.

When my band plays with him, we get to go on right before him so I am super stoked to get to talk a bunch before hand. He deserves greatness. Hopefully I buy his record on vinyl there too. He deserves to blow the fuck up. Unwell is a great song
