Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

Anyways, I kinda feel like the texts between him and his "ex" manager should draw a clear line.

He's not interested in changing, he doesn't wanna get better, he wants to continue being sick in the way he's always been sick and he wants to release music.

Things never really changed, and they're likely never going to change.

"Put up or shut up" seems to be what's facing us fans - but not even really until he decides to put out more tunes.

All this is to say that I don't think this is a very complicated issue at this point.

Bleh.

You aren't the only one doing it, but you are the one who just ignored a crystal clear warning about it.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

this thread has outlived its usefulness- if there ever was any.
go listen to some new RIDE or something.
without the music - there's nothing going on here except bitter recriminations.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

Too much negativity on this board, especially coming from those who've been picking on him for as long as...I dunno. Anyway, here's something I learned about US moral standards:

1. Never expose yourself to a 16-year old girl over the internet, because you'll be regarded as a pedophile, someone who (by definition) persistently shows sexual interest in pre-pubescent children.
2. Never compare yourself to somebody who has been accused of sexual misconduct or rape, even if it's a tongue-in-cheek statement because you know that sexting a minor will automatically make you a pedophile in the public opinion.
3. If you ever find yourself on a porn site that shows consensual sex between a teen and her "stepdad" (or her "NOTfather"), stay calm and enjoy. But please make sure to spend one dollar for an organization that protects young children all over the world from being exposed to pornographic content.

Thank you!

Those points didn't make sense when you made them before, and they still don't.

The most damning line is "ALL the failed interventions." If people try do that for you and you still can't see that the problem is YOU, then nothing is going to change.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

to be honest i respect ryan more for saying he’s ok with being a trash human and just writing songs than if he came out with some bullshit apology/rehab of the spirit horseshit if it isn’t genuine.

I just wanted to signal-boost these two insights because I think they're both very salient points that are easy to get overlooked in a thread this size.

I know a lot of people are disheartened by or weary from all the disagreement in this thread, but I still find the discussion (reading all takes, even the eye-roll inducing ones) illuminating and valuable.

Whatever songs he's playing sound really good, definitely has that "old" sound I've been missing.

I'd be shocked if he didn't fire her instead, after that public post of a private conversation.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

I have a lot to say. I am going to. Soon.
Because the truth matters.

I know who I am. What I am.
It's time people know.
Past time.

All the beauty in a life cannot be reduced to rubble for lies.
This madness.

My work was a map for the lost. Not a billboard.

So soon.

RAs message on Twitter. So, it looks like the soap opera continues.

Right? People can take it as whatever they want, but I feel like we just caught a glimpse of his true feelings a couple of weeks ago. Although now that I think about it, just because those texts were released a couple of weeks ago doesn't mean they were exchanged then. We don't know how old they really are. Plus, I feel like this was still oozing with self pity. It's all "me me me. My brother died, my friends died, my menieres. Me me me." It's much easier for me to see through it now.
