    Default This makes me love Dexter even more

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Music/commen..._get_in_touch/


    "Hey I am a twenty eight year old guy from Delaware who was supposed to go to The Offspring show tomorrow in Philadelphia with a childhood friend. He convinced me it was a good idea to go since they were playing the entire album smash and we had grown up on it. We have been friends since we were six and the album smash came out when we were eight. We grew up on the album, I remember listening to it pretty much every time we hung out until we were at least 14.
    Last Friday however by his house my friend was tboned by another car and is now in a coma and might not live. We had talked about going to a show together for years, but our tastes in music had diverged like they often can and life got in the way at some point.
    I am writing this because I would like to try to get in contact with someone who knows The Offspring and maybe get a signed tshirt or copy of smash. I know it is a long shot, but I have seen reddit do great things in my time of mostly lurking. He is an amazing guy and when he wakes up I would like him to wake up to even though he missed the show he was not forgotten.
    Any help would be appreciated. Best regards RRmuttonchop"

    Wow, nice find. You can really tell a lot about someone by how they treat their fans. Dexter's always been a stand up guy, and even seemingly small deeds like this go to show

    They are all heart... I love that so much. I have learnt so much about attitude from them... I am sure I would be less of a person if I never saw these good examples.

    this is cool! And I'm sure there is plenty of things like this that we don't know about because the bad is so down to earth that doesn't need to make it visible!
