PunkNews.org Presents: An Interview with Tony from Mest

Posted by: Jason Tate (04/10/12)
PunkNews.org posted an interview up with Tony from Mest.
From the InterviewYeah, looking back at the time, I think I was thinking it was just recreational use and I was having a good time, but then I realized there'd be two or three days where I'd be laying on the couch and I wouldn't even get up to eat, then I'd have such bad anxiety where I couldn't even get in my own car to drive two blocks to Burger King or something. I think it was noon one day and we were up all night doing drugs and my heart was racing so fast, I was like, "Fuck, I need to take a shower to come down." And I remember being in the shower where I was having one of those moments where I thought something's not right. It wasn't fun drug-use anymore; I realized it was me trying to cover up a bigger problem. I couldn't go back to Chicago, because in Chicago, I'm like the hometown hero, so everyone wants to buy you a drink and give you a bag of cocaine and want to party with you. Then out in L.A., everybody that I was hanging out with was doing the same shit.

The more people that are envious of me, then at least I'm doing something right, because that person wants it. There's these websites that kids go on and complain, like absolutepunk.net or whatever, and what I've noticed on those websites is that it's kids complaining and whining, and it's like, "Dude, it's fucking music, what are you crying about?" I don't get it.

Hey now! What is the dillio?

Between this interview and the quote Jason pulled, there are just so many jokes I want to write, but I digress.

That's the one part of the interview that rubbed me the wrong way. The argument that people who have something negative to say are automatically "envious" of the other party involved has always confused me. It always sounds like the artist is trying to hold people hostage or something by threatening them with by being a "hater" or "jealous" simply for expressing an opinion other than "This rules! Come to my town!"

There's a big difference (particularly on this site) between complainers and people who simply don't think positively about something. And the latter definitely outweighs the former from what I've seen...As far as that band goes, if not for whole site...

Someone played me one of their songs a few years ago, and I couldn't stop laughing. Even when I was in high school, and thought they had a few good songs, the dude thought he was hot shit. Good to know he still thinks that way.

More eloquent than "FUCK JASON TATE" I guess. Well, at least it's good to be known for something.
