"Oh and WHY does he keep saying that he wants to be with this band for the next 20 or 30 years?? Doesn't he know these guys will all be 80 by then? If this gig lasts two years for any of these rockers, that would be a miracle!"
Oh please. Have you ever heard of hyperbole? I guess you are mad at him for saying they've been at the mansion for a "thousand" weeks? But I guess it's okay for Jordis to say a thousand weeks, huh?
It's a colorful way of saying, "I'm not in this as a career boost or a publicity stunt or for the exposure I'm doing this because I want to be partners with you."
It sounds like you have one set of standards for JD, and another set for everyone else. Everything he does is either annoying, manipulative or calcuated. If you are going to judge him, use the same yardstick for everyone.
MiG can be spastic and still be awesome.
Marty can wave his hands around like the mad conductor and that doesn't bother you.
And as far as the evil terrible things that he does, how about:
Marty using this for a career boost, which is what it sounds like you are saying in "when he leaves for a year or two."
Marty can make a point to say "I'm the only one who has a vision for the musical direction of his band" ala JD's "I'm the only who hasn't had to learn INXS songs" comment.
Suzie can specifically choose not to help the guys with advice on performing for survival.
And why aren't those people evil???? Oh yeah, because this is a competition that they are trying to win.
