I'll write cliff notes cause this thing is long:
This is the last record (maybe)
We won't tour
I am sorta ethan.
Say Anything has always been a collective of sorts
I decided to marry a woman, who is the best person ever
I've known her my entire life in a soul-mate way
I am a "pseudo" atheist. I believe in "my god".
I have bi-polar and that leads to a lot of confusion of my outlook from others
New record will be a story continuing the IARB story. (I guess he didn't die)
Marriage is hard
The new record will be told from a point of view of a homophobic has been. (great?)
Real and fictional Sociopaths and Psychopaths influenced this record hard.
Max is on anti-depressants. Snorts them cause coke isn't allowed. This created strife in his life
Tried smoking weed again, didn't like it.
Really into this band, and had ethan thoughts, and it opened my mind about it and I can empathize with ethan people. the band is called Museum Mouth (is that a SA reference?)
This record is very post-modern and he plays Oliver
Max probably has only fallen in love with men, or had crushes with them. Denies telling us the juicy stuff. hubba hubba
Max details the album arcs and what they mean.
snorting drugs lead him down a dark path, possibly even death. don't snort drugs and drink
became sober with his third child, he has had crippling PTSD and anxiety. he cries a lot
"oliver" or "real boy" is probably his embodiment of his darker side, and he loves himself despite his faults (I think that's what he means)
he loves you
