What is up with Eric?

Post by notNRK »

Eric used to be so pure and good. Now he smokes? Now he drinks? Now he says words that begin with the letter "F?" His hair was so short and his cloths were so bright. Did joining The Long Winters corrupt the poor boy? Please bring back the old Eric. I do not like the new one.

He tried to bum a cigarette off of me after the Snoqualmie Pass show. Too bad I don't smoke.

He is still pure and good in his heart.
That's what counts.

In Eric's Defense. . .

You obviously didn't know him very well. We're proud of him- he's doing really well and having fun. We never knew Eric to be a bright clothed/non-smoker/non-swearing/short-haired person in all the years that we've known him.
There is nothing wrong with being un-ostentatious like he was.
Good luck Eric, hope to see you at a show soon,
Devon & Steph

Are you serious with this? Damn Christain rock. He doesn't smoke much, drink much or curse much for that matter. What does short hair and bright clothes have to do with anything? He's not in Wham, he's in The Long Winters and it's not the band, it's American culture. He's not a boy anymore. He's becoming an intelligent, considerate and extremely talented man. So there.

What does smoking, drinking and cursing have to do wth "pure and good?"
Eric is an extremely talented musician doing what he loves to do. You should be happy for him. And he is still about as pure and good as anybody you are likely to find in this day and age.

Eric and I were talking in our room in Ottawa, Ontario Canada last night and I mentioned this post. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "Actually, being in this band has kinda mellowed me out."

Then he went back to his computer.

Meanwhile, down the hall, Nada Surf was setting fire to their mattresses.

There you have it, worrywarts.
