Re: Ryan Adams to stalk Rob Thomas and other TBY members

Having it's own thread guarantees that Ryan will see our posts and reactions to the "stalking." To this I write:

Dear Ryan,

It's made me happy to see you posting online again. What's made me even happier is that the posts have a very calm nature to them. It seems that taking a breather from the music rat race has had a profound effect on you. I'm glad that you're getting support from your wife and I'm glad that you found a compatible partner that can help you through your ups and downs. We should all be so lucky to have someone that assists us through this inconsistent circus that we call "life." I hear you've got new jams on the way and I'm very excited to hear them; all of us at tby are excited to hear them. Which brings me to the main body of the message.

Tobeyoung is a message board made up of fans of Ryan Adams. More importantly, it's a message board made up of people. People have feelings, and feelings can be easily hurt as I'm sure you've learned over the years. People make mistakes, but that's why such a thing as forgiveness exists. I'm not sure exactly what we've done to anger or upset you Ryan, but does we deserve to be the subject of a life long grudge? Life's too short for that sort of thing.

I met you briefly in 2007 Ryan, after the Vancouver show at the Commodore. We hung out at 7-11 and talked about Barbara Gordon. I almost mustered up the courage to tell you that you had been an inspiration for me getting through my problems with alcohol. I'm not sure what your response would have been. That's a heavy trip to lay on someone right after playing a gig, and ultimately that's what kept me from disclosing that information. Point being, at the time you were a role model to me. I'd been a fan of your music for years and seeing you rock out just as hard, if not harder, sober was a good influence on me to remain sober. That's why it hurts me to see you treating your fans this way. Fans of public figures will always have something critical to say about them, but is that any reason to lash out and alienate them? Sometimes my friends piss me off, but eventually we cool off, apologize and it's water under the bridge.

I know that the RAA is your designated online home, but maybe if you posted here once in a while you would see that we are people and not just letters on a screen. I think I can safely say that most of us here still support you and your career by going to the shows and buying the records. Some of us even bought the books (just understand that poetry is still sort of a niche genre and not all of us are into it). Regardless of the hurtful things that have been said, I am still a fan of you, David Ryan Adams, and will continue to listen to your music. Musicians/artists do not have to reach out to their fans, but you've chosen to do so through the internet. Very cool. I'm reaching out right now with nothing but a positive message, and it would be punk as fuck if you responded.

Sincerely,
Geoff (gsmile of tby)

Let Ryan stalk me, he'd get so bored he'd never stalk anyone ever again.

Re: Ryan Adams to stalk Rob Thomas and other TBY members

soooo if he's reading this would now be a good time to ask for my money back on the whole cardinology thingy I purchased?

My mother told me that it never hurts to ask.

It was very nice of Wolfie to start this thread so could you all please try to stay with the topic and NOT bring TBY into it and start some silly catfight between everyone and the boards? It would be stupid and sad if it got all weird and the thread had to be removed...
(And that includes, Wolfie, too... please don't add fuel to the fire.... )

Thanks!!

How can something be off-topic if the person who started the thread mentioned TBY?

Re: Ryan Adams to stalk Rob Thomas and other TBY members

I'm at a loss to understand why, when 9/10 of the posts here are about how lame RA is and there's a whole section devoted to criticizing the size of his wife's thighs, he should be displeased with TBY.
