Well, for someone like me who immediately assumes the worst and catastrophizes everything in my life, it works. So I hope you’re right.

Yeah I get that, but don't worry - it's not a particularly good prank but I guess we have to cut the mods some slack, one's sense of humor gets rusty when they only joke once a year! :P

And on my cat’s 1st birthday too! How bittersweet is that?!

Tre's Busted Drumkit

So Hermoine, the straightest-laced member the mod team has ever had, is talking about a "time of mourning" and Andres needing $1M to keep the thing going, then referring to "death throes".

Also, this shit would be pinned.

That explains why GDA hasn't been covering the lastest Green Day news.  

Mike and Tre have exited the band.  Their replacement hasn't been officially announced but some of the wildest suspects I've heard so far: 

One of the girls from Kittie.  She's playing drums.  

On bass guitar the top suspect is Matt Sharp of Weezer fame. 

Apparently the guys had a big fight over what the new album should sound like.  Tre wanted a big rave/dance sound.  Mike wanted to go more mello and jazzy while Billie Joe wanted to make an Anti-Nazi album with no personal lyrics whatsoever, and a big middle finger on the front. 

Happy April 1st, guys!  

Tre has been replaced by a drum machine, because the drum machine is easier to work with and shows up to practice on time. Mike has been replaced by Rebecca Black, because you don't really need any discernible talent to be a bass player.

Guys seriously!  Andres sold the domain name... hopefully some other fan can keep it going.  Right now we are trying to get GDA back on track!  Anyone want to write for GDA?

I'm buying the domain so that I can make it that when you get on the site you get automatically redirected to an endless loop of the one minute speech

I'll write for GDA but only if I can constantly talk about the greatness of Nightlife and Kill the DJ.

I can pitch in whatever to keep this place alive. I'd seriously be fucked up if we lost our community.

While I do not hate the songs entirely, you may not write about them all the time.

 

i just need writers.  I can’t keep filling in ( as has been made clear this past month)

Given a choice I’d take GDC over GDA. We can get our news anywhere but there are not a lot of forums left like this one, Idiot Nation is dead and I hate Reddit.  

Unfortunately GDA funds GDC,  even when we don’t post anything for a month.

 If the other way around it would be the end of GDA.

Like it or not, @pacejunkie punk is right. GDA is not getting nearly the amount of traffic as GDC, simply because it doesn’t serve as big of a purpose.

I'd prefer the end of GDA over the end of GDC.

Even when we fail to post for a month GDA continues to pull more traffic than GDC this more revenue.

I messaged Andres on twitter just to see if there's anything we could do...

I'm sure you could try kicking his ass that usually helps.

I think you should at least hold off until April 2 just in case the joke’s on you. 

Yeah, no.

It's already $50 up.
