Tonight was very disappointing.

We found out at nine that we finished second in famecast voting.

I personally have several beefs with the famecast system and most online "talent search" websites. They always seem to change the rules halfway through the competition to favor certain acts over others - which is exactly what happened. When we signed up for famecast we were told that after finishing in the top five we would be competing in a live show (an even playing field) against the other bands. Instead they changed it to a voting format - who ever has the highest volume of fans - that is not a contest of talent. That is a contest of money. So here is a big fuck you to famecast (except Luke, who has some of the greatest tattoos in the history of the world) and an even bigger thank you to all of you that voted. You have been such an inspiration to all of us and we would not be able to do this without all of you.

The chip on my shoulder is a foot deep and only getting larger.

While I am very frustrated and angry, I am also very thankful to see such an incredible outpour of support both for the band and for our band-family. I can not thank our street team enough - Kat, Joyce, Rebecca and of course Steph... Thank you.

Thank you all for your support, this will not stop us... only make us more determined.

- Alexander
