Shank, I'd like to know, for how long are you addicted to the band? I think it's a very common thing to surround yourself with The Offspring for first few years since you've discovered them.
I was like that about 6-7 years ago, now I'm not that focused on a single band, but to be honest I never had such problems with pissing someone with my favorite band maybe because I avoid narrow-minded people and family/friends are ok with my addiction.
P.S.: Keep up good work on growing a die-hard-offspring-fan-since-2-years-old, I think it was you, who started a thread about not believing to such fans
Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?
