Finch: We Do Not Promote Or Condone Violence

FINCH have posted a statement on their official web site dismissing accusations from the DISTURBED camp that they were responsible for starting a between the two bands at last weekend's Rolling Rock Town Fair in Latrobe, PA. "We are tired of discussing it, the entire thing was a misunderstanding and we would like to put it behind us," they write. "Anything you've heard about FINCH or members of FINCH's family pushing a woman or a child are completely FALSE and we're appalled that anyone would suggest something so horrible. The members of FINCH do not promote or condone violence and we hope our fans feel the same way. We do not want any animosity between our fans and DISTURBED, nor do we want any more incidents like the one this weekend. Thank you."

Dictionary in a size 4 dress. I can actually see that. I've been called the walking encyclopedia before. Weird...

Finch doesn't promote or condone violence? What a bunch of bs. Their guitarist said, "I'd shoot him in the f***ing head. I'd rip his stupid little piercings out." about David Draiman. How is that not promoting violence? Hypocrites.

I "say sh**" about Finch because they're f***ing god awful, not because of some love for Disturbed, because they're f***ing god awful too. See how that works out? While disturbed is marginally better, they're still sh**, so everybody wins here!

look up your own damn bird picture!! no actually, they have similarities but don't really
look alike at all. from a different view maybe but it depends on the type of the bird.

i have to biitch about something, it's not the subject here but i don't care!!!

I HATE THE HOUSTON ASTROS!!!!!

Lance Berkman faked getting hit in the head on a pitch by Cubs reliever
Mike Remlinger during the top of the 8th inning today!! he's an idiot who just wants
his team to win. the ball was foul because it hit his bat and rocketed to Berkman's left,
in turn Berkman, startled, hit the ground and after waiting 2 seconds decided that it
hit his head. here is what is wrong with that!! if you get hit in the head you don't wait 2
or 3 seconds before yelling in pain. i think he was doing that intentionally because
Carlos Beltran got hit in the knee by a pitch by Cubs reliever Ryan Dempster in the
same inning and right before Berkman!!

I'M MAD ABOUT THIS!! I OFFICIALLY HATE THE HOUSTON ASTROS!!!

also, there is another fight going on between Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood and Astros
pitcher Roy Oswalt. you just had to see the games, i can't explain it. ok, i can
but i don't want to because i'm hitting the keys too hard and i might break the
keyboard out of anger!!!

GO CUBS!!!!!
