I love all their albums to different and equal degrees at this point, but Supporting Caste and Failed States took me a few extra listens to really sink in. I had to sit with the lyric sheets and let it dissolve in but now they have some of my favorite songs. This one really hit hard from the first drop. I legitimately started crying in public listening to Adventures in Zoochosis for the first time. Lower Order is a poppy but powerful song that, honestly, slapped the sense back into me irt my veganism - it's been easy for me to just have it be a habit and not something I think about. Cop Just Out Of Frame is really powerful on a few levels. Call Before You Dig is, imo, a great soft nihilist anthem haha. They're all fucking bangers.

Didn't Paul also try to accuse Eric Ayotte of abusing his partner and that wound up being a totally unfounded accusation?

This was my understanding, yes.

So. Throwaway account basically. I've been around for... awhile. I always heard passing stories of the weird shit Chris would get up to and also found his choices in age of girls to be really strange, but it never hit this level. Unfortunately, that kind of informs my not-surprised reaction to hearing this. A blow, sure, and I'm not saying I knew something and didn't speak up, it all just kind of flows together. I wish it weren't true but I 100% believe it, not that my opinion matters much.

I don't want to break any confidentiality but I've been touch with Paul as well as two people who I trust who are in that scene. It seems like him being critical of the manipulative behavior of Chris and many others is part of why he left that community. It seems like he and others were aware of the shit Ryan has been accused of and that Chris raised red flags and has manipulative tendencies. It seems like the allegations of sexual abuse by Chris are new though.

I was always getting the information that Paul had sort of jumped into throwing accusations around in all directions and it caused some friction (including from at least one person who he was supposedly defending but who was not interested in his approach or help), but it makes as much sense that it was legitimate because people are pretty crappy.

So, related, here's my big ask - can someone, publicly or privately, please tell me exactly what the Ryan story is, given that I've heard all sorts of allusions from multiple people and the fact that I have been his close friend for over a decade and we've had a romantic relationship? I know that doesn't necessitate me knowing anything or give me any sort of privilege to it, but hell, I'd like to know if I'm missing something. I just haven't been out in public much lately and could never get a direct story even from actual friends who were none too pleased with him.
