An apology: To the person in Madison who received a beautifully drawn black sharpie penis on their poster instead of signatures: Dear you, I apologize for our misunderstanding at the signing the other night. I think in the haziness of the situation I must have assumed you wanted a giant penis in the middle of the poster. Much like a carpet may complete the room, im sure this penis did not complete your poster. I will be happy to refund your money or give you a new poster with all of my mature band mates real signatures on it for you. And you do not suck. I would never tell anyone they suck unless they root for the Flyers, Browns, or Ravens. Please accept my apology and allow me to make it up to you. Sincerely, Ryan Stasik
I volunteered to ride a bike with an amp behind it blaring dance music down Lake Shore Dr. for Climate Cycle bike ride. Most everyone enjoyed the beats I was blaring, a few danced, several smiled, but one guy wanted to fight me. I found this hilarious seeing I was riding a red chopper bike and playing dance music that he may of heard for a total of 20 seconds. He told me, "get some headphone you asshole. You're taking up too much room on the bike path." WOW Didn't know the DAD from Footloose was taking a bike ride on Father's Day in the afternoon and that he owned the Lake Shore bike path. I ride to train, I ride for fun, I walk and run the path frequently. If you want to dress up head to toe like you're in the Tour de Fucki' France, so be it, just be ready for recreational landmines my friend. Everyone should know the etiquette for walking or riding on Lake Shore path, yet most do not follow these rules. I was. I was coasting slowly and staying on the far right so other bikers could pass. This Footloose DOOOOSH actually stopped and tried to fight me. How does loud music that literally passes you by in 5 seconds make someone so angry on a beautiful Father's Day riding in the sun? I was crippled with laughter that this guy was so pissed. He must really hate life, maybe he should go out to the burbs and ride his Tour de France bike where no one will bother him with fat beats!
That was my favorite encore ever last night. You guys were off the charts loud. Soul food 2 > glory > can't you see. \mm/
We truly have the greatest fans. It's easy to lose perspective of life, humanity and get caught up in the game. We are all human, and music heals. I feel blessed to make it, play it, be healed by it, and share with all of you. Without the fans, we are nothing. Thank you for everything. http://unpluggedmusings.com/main/dear-umphreys-thank-you/ Link
