Hey Noodles.......

I'm writting this message to you 'cause you seem to be the member of the Offspring who cares about fans the most. I mean, as far as I have seen you're the only one posting stuff and talking to your fans. And I know this doesn't belong here but I've been told that politics is the only thread you read so I posted it here. I've already sent a letter similar to this but I haven't received a reply which is not surprising of course since you have milions of fans but I'm writting this anyway. Maybe I'll be better luck this time :-). I just wanted to tell you how your cancelling the croatian concert made me (and probably a lot of other people who came to your concert) feel....
You're the first band I ever started to listen to and you were my favorite band for about 3 years. Ever since I started listening to you people were always bothering me because of that and talked shit about you. They were talking stuff like you're all milioners and that you don't care about your fans, that your albums since americana are commercial... I agreed that your newer albums were commercial but I didn't care about that then. I loved you anyway. But I totally didn't agree that you don't care about your fans untill almost one year ago after you cancelled concert in Croatia. I know, they didn't let your trucks with equipment go across the border because of bad weather. But you could have performed the day after beacause it was your day off. You could even perform with borrowed equipment. I know that songs wouldn't sound the same but who would care about that anyway?!? We just wanted to SEE YOU... I wouldn't care if you played for only half and hour... I wouldn't even care if you played the same song all the time... Croatia is a pretty poor country and not all people can afford to buy concert tickets so that's probably a reason why you didn't sell so many tickets. There weren't a lot of us but that doesn't mean we don't love you! I just wanted to see YOU goddammit!!!!!! And if it's possible, I want to know why that happened? I had a huge fight with my so called friends beacuse they were talking shit about you. I told them stuff like: "You can all fuck off, I'm going to Offspring concert and you can drop dead. I cared about you more than about them...... And when I came back home from Zagreb (city where you were supposed to play in), I felt like a total loser and I was depressed for some time....
You're not my favorite band anymore, Toy Dolls took your place. I went to their concert and it was the best day of my life and their singer even replied to me twice when I asked him something on their forum. They really do care about their fans... I still listen to some of your songs from time to time (Smash and I'll be waiting - beautiful songs, your best written songs ever in my opinion) and I still like you because you changed my life :-).

I know you probably don't have time to read all your fan mail and you probably won't read this one but at least I tried... :-)


Cheerio!


Your huge ex-fan

Dude, please don't embarrass us, i know it has been hard when they cancelled the show, but you'll get over it just like i did (actually i don't understand why didn't you already).
This is not a right place to put this thread.
Have a nice life with Toy Dolls! :)

I wanted to post this here and if noodles reads it ok, if he doesn't it's still ok. And if you call me stupid or childish for being true (ex) offspring fan well i guess you aren't their true fan if you don't understand me. You're probably just trend following poseurs who will listen to avril lavinge in few months... btw, write any shit you want now, I won't reply to you, i really just don't care and I don't wanna waste another 2 minutes of my time for YOU....

I didn't called you stupid niether childlish. And don't put words into my mouth.
I am a fan, but i wont let the fact that they cancelled the concert to ruin my life. But the fact is that this is an unappropriate place to put this thread.
I know it is hard, but i don't understand why did you came bitchin' about this 10 months after cancellation...

You know that even expressing how this irritates you wont prevent this kind of threads,so why is there always a reply to them?

Besides, the reason that show was cancelled may have had as much to do with politics as the weather. Neither of which we had any control over.

Well, you could have played there... And I would go to your concert even now but organisator of the concert said they don't want to work with you anymore. Don't get me wrong, I got over it but I visited this site and I've seen you're posting stuff to your fans and I had a need to write this. Sorry if I totally ruined politics section, really.....

Again I'll point out, Noodles posts in the Politics forum, probably to talk about politics, not to read letters from disgruntled fans.

And honestly, if you invest such emotional value into a concert that was cancelled almost a year ago, then I don't think you should be writing letters to Noodles', you should be trying to find out what's wrong with you.

When you shut up and ignore things thats fucking passive and people walk all over you, they'll KEEP doing it if you ignore it, one by one people will notice these stupid fucking questions on the board and more people will get in on it, if you slap them down as soon as they do it the first time it usually keeps more people from doing it.

You're one to talk about it just being the fucking internet, you used to be obsessed with the shit that went on in the Chat, and on the BBS.

neway let him post here if hes looking for an answer from noodles, he really wanted one and he got one, the only idiots tht i see are all of u who continly are calling him a retard and an asshole etc. w/e...and ur also just encouraging a larger arguement, so this post tht u all claim to have ruined the politics forum is growing larger and larger because of all of u people who cant just deal with some dude who just wanted a burning question answered

now...dude who posted this..im not exactly sure if u shoulda posted it here, maybe a better way could have been found, but hey u wanted an answer tht badly, more power to ya

12-28-2004, 01:47 PM
I think the issue is not so much with this one post, but with the fact that it will encourage others to post in this forum and then everybody will need to have a "burning question" answered... there has been another post to Noodles already, and how many more will that lead to? The politics forum is great because it has remained relatively on topic. Not that going off topic is bad, but the thing about the politics forum is that most threads aren't dumb, and if they start out that way, often good people will post in them making them more interesting. General chat, the off topic section, has some great threads, but lots of stupid ones too.

Also, obviously if Noodles wanted to answer some of these burning questions, he would reply in the band or tour sections. He knows they exist, and possibly reads through them, and well...

Second time you ignore my points and stubbornly hold on to your opinion. That's the logical fallacy known as a straw man fallacy.

I've read the whole topic for you information, did a while go.

And as for posting just to get you to argue, I've only posted to respond to your arguments. I've had no intention to piss you off in any form, so far, you've been the one referring to me and others as idiots, stupid, ignorant, and whatnot, and I've tried to keep nothing but a calm tone with you.

Okay, I seriously try to avoid arguing with you Linda because I find it an impossible task due to your stubborness, but right now I am slightly intoxicated and don't have my right mind to tell me that it's not worth it.

Okay, sure Noodles didn't care. But I'd like to say that addressing somebody as "the kid" would not really feel like a personal response. It is much more condescending than anything. So sure Noodles "responded" but obviously did not take the whole thing very seriously, and was not responding to the actual poster. The whole Croatia thing is obviously not his fault and I'm sure he probably doesn't want to have to explain himself over and over. Regardless, the point is not only whether Noodles cares, it's whether everybody else cares as well. And obviously a lot of people do care about the "spamming". Do I want this forum to turn into "posts to band members"? No way! Do I care about one measly post to a band member? Not really, but am mostly responding to this due to people like you saying it's not a big deal at all.

Regarding Justin's posts... I think a lot of them are fucking hilarious. Some are a little dumb, but some are classic. Also, the simple fact that people fall for them over and over is hilarious in itself. And you may not be "falling for them" but you do express outrage over the stupidity of the posts, which is also entertaining, although sometimes repetitive and boring.

I also think that "An abortion story" thread was one of the most hilarious things I have EVER read. Oh my god, that had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions, I absolutely loved it.

And about taking things seriously... I enjoy serious topics, obviously. I also enjoy hilarious topics (eg those started by Justin and other entertaining characters from the BBS which I won't name names or else some might get jealous) But the mindless topics like about your favourite chips, most often not. So, just because you like serious topics does not imply that you "take the BBS seriously". I think actually CARING about Justin's posts means you are taking things much more seriously. And your furious response to this post will also probably mean you are taking things quite seriously.

Whatever, I don't even care, I AM a serious person, naturally. But I think it's important to know when to take things seriously. And this is certainly not a serious issue, but I felt I needed to bring up some relevent points, and was just generally annoyed with a lot that you had to say in this thread.

wheelchairman
12-29-2004, 04:36 AM

I responded to both your points about Noodles' caring, and about Tripboy's topic, my response I believe was something along the lines of them being irrelevant to why I think this topic shouldn't have been made. So that means you need a different argument, because repeating them would be irrelevant when arguing against my opinion at this moment.

Linda
12-29-2004, 07:47 AM
If the band doesn't care, why the fuck should you all care?

That's my opinion and the point I've been trying to make.

you all say, like you do to me. You're just not worth it.

Linda, of course we pick apart what you think, it's because we don't agree with it.

You can stubbornly repeat your point, but you don't prove anything, and you don't convince anyone. I will do the same, until you acknowledge that what I am quoting is the point that I am trying to uphold for why, what you say is completely irrelevant.

What the band thinks is irrelevant, it's not the basis of this discussion, being stubborn doesn't help.

Oh Jesus Christ you people bring the drama. And the pointless arguments, heh.

To the original starter: That sucks a whole fucking lot, but you really shouldn't blame it on the band. Offspring didn't visit my country, I wouldn't have objected to them coming to play here, but I don't take the fact they didn't personally, because it's really not about that. Of course it's annoying and frustruating, but shit happens. Glad you found a band that tours in your country you can go see. If they ever cancel a show on you, don't be an asshat and blame them for it. I doubt they cancelled it specifically to let you and other fans down.
I'm really sorry your friends are assholes, too.
