Anonymous asked: My two new best friends are awesome and I love them but they smoke cigarettes and weed a lot. I want to hang out with them still, but I don't like how focused they are on those two things and how they spend some of the little money they have on them when they don't need to. I considered smoking weed with them for a while but I have now decided to claim edge since I'm about to start college and I just got a well paying job. What should I do? I don't want to lose them but I'm tired of it

I’m sure they’re good people, and the friendship you have is awesome. Is it strong, and is it true friendship as well?

Take this simple test:

1. Go live your life, by your rules

If the friendship survives, it was meant to be

If it doesn’t, you are better off, and obviously awesome enough to make new friends whenever you want.

You mix coffee into your Red Bull?

That sounds gross

friendlyfascism asked: So obviously there are hardcore straight edge bands, but what straight edge rappers, apart from Hopsin, are there?

I only know SE Frank, YesCONNIE, xCYPHERx, Kidd Swift, Keyoung, and every other rapper we’ve posted on our main site under “Albums”

lastwordandlessonlearned asked: So I'm in this band with a ton of dudes who are really cool, but they all pretty much smoke weed all the time, and drink on occasion. I don't ask them to stop since they don't ask me to join in, so we keep our boundaries well set. Still it tends to bother me sometimes, what would be a good way to deal with something like that?

You are riding a very fragile line

You have to either hang out with them when they’re smoking

or bounce and risk getting kicked out for not being “down”

Of course, the third option is to realize that a band filled with dudes that smoke weed all the time generally don’t get anywhere or do anything, and bounce now.

Anonymous asked: I want to get involved in hardcore/meet edge people, but I don't know anybody involved or have any friends. is going to shows alone a good or bad way to meet people?

It depends on how bad you are at talking to randoms

When I used to run the merch table for my band, I would start conversations with people by talking about whatever bands were on their t-shirt

Likewise, if you play in a band, you meet EVERYBODY

Anonymous asked: I've been thinking of becoming straight edge for a while but I still would like to try some things out there with alcohol in, would it be kinda frowned upon if I was straight edge but just tried a little alcohol occasionally just to experience new foods with alcohol in them?

It’s a trap!

Plus all the most attractive people in the world will like you better if you get drunk with them
