Many of you may not know this but this has been a terrible time for him and his family too. Our reasons are personal and private, not something we want to share and I hope everyone can respect that. I know many of you mean well even when you leave those negative comments for him but please chill it.
He is my friend and he doesn't deserve this. Despite pragmatic advice from others for Miyagi to distance himself from me, Ben has continued to stand by me through more shit than many many other people and he's a true friend.
Thanks for your understanding.
(But feel free, to nag him, nicely, about the smoking though. Heheh.)
Also, we are touched by the encouraging offers to donate money via Paypal. We aren't loaded but neither are we helpless, and we will figure out a way to sort out our finances as a family. We do still want to do T-shirts as we promised since the Tur Kwa days, but only because we think it would be cool and fun. And we hope you think so too.
We really appreciate all this exuberant support you guys have shown us. It has given us strength and touched us deeply. And also thanks go out to our equipment sponsors, especially LSV Enterprise, for continuing to support us with full gear to make our shows even cooler.
Finally, don't get yourself in trouble with the law. Remember, Prison Got No Broadband.
