    Default Let's interview Greg K!

    I've decided I'm going to do everything I can to score an interview with Greg K. My fellow hardcore Offspring fan friends in the Offspring Underground, some of whom are members of the BBS, are behind me on this. Even Noodles knows I want to do this and has joked with me about it. He also likes to tease me about Greg.
    I already have many great questions lined up to choose from and am actually fairly well-known for a simple fan, considering a lot of my stuff comes up in Offspring-related Google searches. I stand a chance of accomplishing this, no matter how small that chance is.
    So, show your support and prove that Greg K matters as much as Noodles and Dexter (and Pete.)

    Suzy Tilley made this petition for me while I was at work yesterday and I've designated her the promoter of the cause. Signing it takes just a minute: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/873/7...ew-you-dammit/

    Look how serious Greg is about this. Don't disappoint him!

    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    It's working. I have 57 and the petition was just created.

    To be honest, looking at that Twitter, based on: "I told Greg he should let you interview him, but he never takes my advice. Sorry. -N", sounds like that's a "no" worded in a semi-humorous way. Greg is aware that you want to interview him by now, but it seems quite obvious that he's not interested. This could be a big part of why he's never in the spotlight as much as Dexter and Noodles - I've always felt that it's pretty obvious that the guy is not into attention, and it's not about not having enough e-signatures or whatever, but about his personality. I say leave it be, don't push him. He knows about it now, and if he wants to do it, he'll make it known to you.

    You should probably give all the petition-y optimistic-yay-fan-social-projects stuff a break, Melyssa.

    You guys have no sense of humor. Noodles would not be so mean as to word a serious remark in such a way. You really think that just because it hasn't happened yet that it never will? Such pessimists! You can go fuck yourselves. Nothing ever came from not trying. Noodles has subtly encouraged me and my support network in the Offspring Underground have my back. Class break is over now, so I must resume my chemistry class, you sad, sad individuals.

    Would you have reacted better to just getting the answer "No?" I think he was trying to deliver the verdict in the nicest way possible.

    It's amazing how neither Eskimo nor I were aggressive toward you... both of us were very polite... and you respond with, "You can go fuck yourselves" and by calling us "sad, sad individuals"...

    You've got some serious problems with interacting with others. Nobody here attacked or insulted you, yet you respond by lashing out in a very aggressive manner. I suggest toning it down; nobody here is telling you to fuck yourself or that you're pathetic or anything like that... why are *you* talking that way to *us*?

    And I'm sorry, but you even tweeted that you couldn't tell if Noodles was serious or not due to Asperger's... several of us here are trying to help you out and explain that this was likely an honest "no", delivered in a more humorous way to soften it.

    I guess my assertion was more to the point of you're doing this shit all the time. It gets old, it's pointless, and it's pretty self-masturbatory of you.

    Now I'll be rude. Seems you throw a hissyfit either way, might as well take the low road and enjoy mocking you.

    As long as it's a calm, shy and silent interview, alright!

    Yeah, if this is what Noodles really said via Twitter, then it seems like he's trying to give you the easy letdown. The function of the word "sorry" in this sentence is meant to imply "sorry, but this won't be successful".

    Also, if Greg has gone this long being quiet 99% of the time, my guess is that it's even less likely now that he's a middle-aged man.

    Melyssa: What is the basis for your fondness of Greg K? I mean, he doesn't write parts, he rarely talks, and he doesn't even like touring. He seems like a fairly good guy, but it doesn't seem like he even cares to put enough about himself out there for people to have a strong response to one way or the other.

    When they said "sit down", I stood up.
