honestly, at first i was very happy for him, and then i came into this thread and realized that the sad truth is that a good portion of the >20,000 bucks from that indiegogo campaign probably did pay for this. there is just no way that this is coincidentally happening at the same time for a man who sees no real current income after his separation from rise except for donations and i guess his current merch. this just makes me feel like he is stealing from his fans again. it doesn't matter if you're buying drugs, a new car, or a diamond ring...if the money he's using to get them is from his fans who give him money for these expenses he outlines so crudely or for a nonexistent macbook then it's all the same in the end. just lost a lot of respect i gained for him over the past couple months seeing him sober. i will not give him a dollar of my money.
