1000 Words and the EP = Big rip off or biggest rip off to the fans?

Hunter Burgan said...

Well, Anonymous, the term "rip off" implies that you made an exchange and received something of inferior value. Since the fans have received nothing, it's hardly a rip off.

Vanilla Lace said...

did you find this pedal or did you have it made? cuz that is pretty sweet

RosesAreBlue said...

Is lack of sleep finally getting to me, or do I see a 'distortion' button that must be pressed? O:

Zaina R Ahmed said...

You said you would type something with more than your thumbs :P

DarkFlame337 said...

Yeah, and the song is "100 Words." If you said it was called 1000 words and it was really only 100 words, THAT would be quite a rip-off. ;)

You've got competition!

motioncityerinn said...

that was DEFINITELY not what i had pictured when you said bass blogger

Charlotte said...

haahahahahahaha XDDDD

Syvenseks said...

Haha, yes. What a rip-off, I gave you nothing and received nothing!

That bass blogger confuses me.

Gillian said...

lol, that's pretty epic!

ThisSideUp said...

I don't know what that is, but I'm sure it's awesome!

Shroomz said...

I pictured it wrong.

Well, Hunter, we are fans, we dedicate most of our time to you, AFI. So we pay money to see you live, pay money for your records, so you can live off of music.

Even if it's not a rip off per se, you got the point.

It's pretty low that you (AFI) announce an EP, even give a tracklist, and then just forget about it. If it's not 100% a fact it's gonna be out, then don't announce it at all.

Courtney the Mighty said...

this is an outrage! you have no need for a body double!

Anonymous said...

and DarkFlame, search typo on the dictionary. Don't be such a tit.
100 words, 337 words, the name doesn't matter, as we most likely will never get them. Anyone remember the 2001 Nitro DVD? :)

DarkFlame337 said...

Hey, anon, it's called a joke. No malicious intent. I was just as excited as anybody for the EP. However the band has decided to hold off on that until after the new album is released, and I'm okay with that.

Personally I'd rather hear an all-new album with all-new songs than an EP where we've heard 40% of the tracks already (Ether and Carcinogen Crush).

And you said we most likely won't get them? Jade actually said on his blog that he really wants these songs to see the light of day AFTER the new album comes out. So I think we'll see the EP eventually.

Jay said...

"Pay the price to see the show but you don't own me"

I actually do remember the 2001 DVD, though. :(

Karlye said...

This is kick-ass.

lezah said...

Wow. Soon the whole blogging industry will explode due to an awesomeness overload.

DarkFlame337 said...

I find it hilarious that there are 336 followers of this blog. Why won't it just go to 337?!

Anonymous said...

DarkFlame, I see it coming. The EP won't come out.

Remember they said on MySpace that it was on the artwork stage? That's the very last stage! So why just hold it back?

And dude. They said the EP would be out and gave a tracklist. It was a LIE.
Now they say they have an album. Maybe it's another lie?

sadclowndisease said...

Not sure what to say...

Hunter Burgan said...

Don't be a dick, Anonymous. You don't know anything about what happened behind the scenes of trying to release our EP. If we had it our way, the EP would have been released 12-06. The label owns the recordings and didn't want to release it. Then they did. Then they didn't. By the time they did again, we decided that it was more important to focus all of our attention and money on a new record that represents where we are right now. If you are patient, we will surely do something with these old songs when we are unable to record new music (once we begin touring) but for now, you'll have to wait.

Oh and by the way, we (AFI), have dedicated our entire lives to creating music for you. We are very grateful to all the fans and friends that have supported us and our music over the years. Notwithstanding, we don't owe you anything. We certainly don't deserve your petty criticism. Anonymous criticism on the internet (especially about a topic you truly know nothing about) is cowardly, rude and just plain juvenile.

My apologies to everyone else.

Stix said...

I'd love for everyone to stop complaining about the EP, also.
Ugh.

And I don't get it the picture..?

Michelle said...

I love that picture Hunter.

Damn, shame drama had to break out in the comments.

I have three words to solve the situation.

Get over it.

Also, three for you.

I love you!

ciel said...

Awesome !
IDK what I pictured, but not that!

chaoskitten said...

*chuckles* that's a cool pedal, but it can NEVER replace you Hunter! :)

and if it tries to i WILL fight it to the death! *karate moves*

nice comeback to that first comment by the way! LOL!

there's a word that person needs to learn.... PATIENCE!

chaoskitten said...

hey hunter, just read the last comment you posted in response to that dick.
i'd just like to say that we fans DO appreciate and love what you do!
i don't blame you guys for the delayed EP, its CLEARLY not your fault.

you guys never played in Ireland, but yet i am patient enough to wait till you do, so why can't that person be patient enough to wait for the EP?

and also, who makes up an elaborate story about recording an album? and if its not true, then why was the BeginTransmission competition held? why invite fans to sing on a record that doesn't exist?
*laughs*
i can't wait for Crash Love, its gonna rock! (literally)
don't mind that eejit! he/she, by no means, represents us fans!

Peter said...

I might have to take up bass and blogging as well
Three's better than two!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Hunter. It's Interscope. They own your lifes now :(
Pretty damn shame AFI sold out :(

Butthurt mammoth is butthurt

Oh, and if you don't want anonymous comments, disable them.

Anonymous said...

Oh, and yes, I know nothing, because you'd rather blog about random shit, instead of keeping us informed. We spend like 1 year between the last tour/next album with practically no news from AFI.

Anonymous said...

chaoskitten:

Why were their 2001 shows recorded? *laughs at your fucking stupid face*

chaoskitten said...

block that attention-seeker pronto, Hunter

chaoskitten said...

you're nothing but a loser anon, you don't even have the courage to put your name to your comments. pathetic.

chaoskitten said...

hunter, i suggest you put set your blog to allow you to approve comments before they are posted, like Jade has on his blog.

chaoskitten said...

i gawg cawks too

Beady Eyed Girl said...

Hey Hunter. Nice put down on Anonymous...I couldn't have put it better myself!!
PS: That's one fine pedal you got there..

Cecilia said...

Hunter, for everything else, the fact that you didn't flip shit and kill Amanda over the Supremes manipulation last night is all the proof I need to know that you're not an asshole. Thank you so much for that.

It's so hard to remember a lot of the time that you guys are real people, not just a band whose sole purpose is to make music. But I think the amount of fan interaction that happens (especially recently) really serves to remind us of that, and it only makes the wait more worth it.

ErinParis LaJeunesse said...

Followers (336)

how special.

Tanya said...

Hahaha, people still say "sold out?" How quaint.

DarkFlame337 said...

337 followers!!!

Michelle said...

I don't know about you but I don't read the blogs of people I don't like.

It's sad that you GOT an answer, you WERE informed and don't believe it. Obviously you'd just rather hate.

Go take your anonymous trash talk somewhere else. Meanwhile, I'll go get AFI inked on my back.

FUCK. YOU. If you don't like AFI, don't post on their blogs and talk shit. Get out. Go talk somewhere else. If you want to join that huge crowd of completely lame people who have nothing better to do than hate AFI via internet, Go throw a fucking party and get the hell out of my face.

And Hunter's

I'm done talking about this. I was done talking about it three fucking years ago.

Go get your fucking pacifier and stop being a baby.

thanks

Katie said...

Hunter, you don't need to apologize to us. You guys do so much for your fans. We should be thanking you a thousand times every day for the music you make and the attention you don't need to give us yet do. I wish we could do more to show you how thankful we are for what AFI does. Its very unfortunate that some people are so selfish and don't see how much you guys have sacrificed for your music and for your fans. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again for everything you and AFI have done.
EFF THE EP!!!! AFI is coming out with a NEW MOTHER EFFING ALBUM SUCKAS!!!!
XD

Haras said...

THAT'S A NICE PEDAL YOU GOT THERE, HUNTER.

Vanilla Lace said...

Hunter you are such a good man!! Anon needs to go get a life,

LOVE YOU...go AFI fans who are patient woo!!

Courtney said...

hahahaha. is this youtube?

I feel bad for Hunter's page.


oh right
THAT'S A NICE BODY DOUBLE YOU GOT THERE, HUNTER.

Anonymous said...

I love people saying I don't like AFI. Hahaha.
I also love all you butthurt fans getting butthurt.

Sam said...

anonymous sort of sounds like jack. then again, this is the goddamn internet.

heart-submerged said...

You are the biggest "butthurt fan" here, you being "butthurt" started this whole mess.

AFI dosn't need "fans" like you.

Anonymous said...

it's been a pleasure trolling you all.

Trolled Mammoth.

Sam said...

Back to ED, then? Farewell!

Jo Emmaljunga said...

Wow, that sure is a beautiful pedal!

It goes without saying how much we fans appreciate AFI. I'm so very grateful to you and the rest of AFI for your music and everything you have done to your fans. I've never in my life seen a band that is so dedicated to their fans as you are. You and Jade blogging and being on Twitter, answering to people's questions and sharing your thoughts..even though you'd surely have much more important things to do. That is just amazing. You guys are so big-hearted, I don't even have the words to tell(plus not enough vocabulary because I'm not a native English speaker). I don't mind at all waiting for the new material..it comes out eventually and I'm fine with it. Listening to your older stuff in the meantime is just as satisfactory to me. And I love reading about also non-music related stuff; your blog/twitter postings give me inspiration, new ideas and above all make me laugh really hard! Thank You Hunter for everything. I hope that anynymous person didn't ruin your day and if did, I hope your supportive fans made it a bit better! Have a good Sunday :)

Anons are from 4chan, not ED, you stupid bitch.

Anonymous said...

ED is wikipedia for 4chan/wherever internet tuff guys come from. Don't you have to get back under the bridge or something?

schehl_07 said...

I tried really hard to come up with some witty reply to your bass blogger and I just couldn't.

Gillian said...

well, anonymous, excuse the band for having a personal life. it's not enough that they've spent this many years making amazing music just so that whiny assholes like you can shit them when one little EP doesn't come out? jeebus, get a goddamn life.

Rhythm Junkie said...

You're pretty funny Hunter.

crazed-art said...

Hey idiotic anonymous coward, STFU. KTHXBAI.

Hunter: Nice pedal, I'd do anything to be that inanimate object. You can push my button anytime! Da-dum-psshhh! *facepalm*

Sabre said...

That has got to be one of the most awesome things I've seen, considering that it seems like you found it before any of us.

nox said...
