Returning to AFI land

I’ve been drawn back to this world after being distracted by reality for some years. I discovered AFI in 2002 when a friend gave me a copy of AOD and I was immediately obsessed. I still remember sitting on the couch listening to it straight through in awe of it and how I hadn’t heard anything like it before. That memory will stay with me forever and that album will always mean more to me than anything.

I joined the DF around '04 and was on the old boards though I mainly lurked. I think my username was starvingstatic. I gradually stopped following them as much around 2011. I saw them this summer and was immediately reminded of why I love this band so much. So here I am, ready to be a part of whatever is next.

Random sidenote - I really miss my “Happy Birthday from The Despair Faction” emails.
