This is how I see it.
Joke or not, it merits a response. Why do I feel it’s necessary to comment and “come to Phaze’s defense”? Probably because I know these guys and these guys are my family. Just like how all the guys from VA and on the VA forums all of a sudden come to his defense. “Oh he’s just joking/it’s just a joke”. And then what? All of sudden it’s cool to name drop because you’re joking and everyone is supposed to get that?
What I do on a daily basis on my site and what our guys have done…we don’t need to namedrop and call people out. What we’ve all done collectively has been cemented in print. All of us. I see alot of comments on the “VA driven” forums about how mad we are. Haha, we ain’t mad about anything. The guy is the William Hung of the Honda community right now. You wanna be famous? All good, I’ll give you your 15 min. Publicity brings hits my friend. A couple days from now, no one will be talking about it anymore because it will be insignificant. But I’m sure somewhere along the way all this has helped bring some new readers to my side and even more eyes on our group. I’m willing to give up 15 min of fame to this cat anyday of the week for that.
We’re a family first, then friends, then businessmen. Nevermind, wheel fitment, Mikey’s business is “killing it” right now. The Chronicles is doing better than ever, etc.
This guy put all that work into getting the car up, putting the wheels on, taking pics, putting it up, a “joke” call out, feeling the need to respond to every comment posted about him….that’s alot of work for a joke. All that for some bad publicity? At the end of the day the jokes on him.
Why take it so seriously some of you ask? This guy pulls a stupid stunt, I stir the pot, and everybody is talking about it. Controvery makes the world go round and round. People are talking about what we said in response more than what the guy attempted to (poorly) accomplish. I think we came out pretty well in that regard. You don’t have to agree with me or like what I have to say. I can’t please everybody…haha. But for those of you who are here for the first time…Welcome to “The Chronicles”. I hope your stay is pleasant, entertaining, and informative.
