The Fearsome Four pulls a Destinys Child, Members Deny Drug Abuse Charges - Dont get swallowed by...THE BLOG!

The Fearsome Four pulls a Destinys Child, Members Deny Drug Abuse Charges
In a press conference held earlier today Vladimir Fefer announced to the Associated Press the break up of the Fearsome Four. Fefer had this to say: "This is definitely not the end of our collaboration, nor is it a burning of bridges. I just feel that at this time the members of the group are moving their separate ways so this needed to be done. I just hope this doesn't become some sort of weird Van Halen thing where everyone hates everyone. These guys are some of the greatest people you will ever meet and we will work together again."

The announcement came as a surprise to some people. However, rumors had been circulating all summer, so this was not an unexpected announcement for the fans or the press. When the group toured this summer Jon Howard was surprisingly absent; David Baston was also mostly unaccounted for, except for a few brief interludes. However it should be noted that when either or both Baston and Howard were present those were "some of the most, like, awesome-est times of the summer," said Fefer. "Grammatically speaking, that previous sentence sucked. Please don't quote that," he added.

Vladimir Fefer and Stephen Tinkleman were the only original members to be regulars on this summers tour. But this summers tour brought to the attention of the fans some new faces. Joe Swimeley, who was an occasional feature player when The Fearsome Four started out, became a regular. Also joining them was Levi Brennan. Said Fefer, "When Tink first suggested bring Levi into the group I wasn't sure, but my mind was quickly changed. I'd prolly take a bullet for that guy...not in the chest, but still."

The Fearsome Four first got together in high school becoming "the best of friends." Side projects included their bands Obscure Reference, later Obscure, and then back to Obscure Reference, which Fefer later deemed a "meta-band name." "Y'know how band names are always obscure references to stuff? Well we're just gonna call ours 'Obscure Reference'" Howard was remembered as saying. "Or was it Dave?" Fefer could not recall. "He's always putting 'meta' on stuff. What the fuck is meta anyways?" the others said.

Tinkleman, Swimeley, Baston, and Brennan could not be reached for comment.

Howard had this to say "oops, i'm about to go to sleep and I forgot about IM...yeah we seriously should have hung out more" this summer.

Drug abuse charges were denied vehemently by Fefer. "Steve is NOT a pothead," he said.

Fefer concluded the press conference with this: "Hopefully, when we all get the chance we can create some sort of super group, like Audioslave or something. But with like, more members in addition to the original four. Like the Sexless Six or something. But from what I understand Levi and I are the only ones who qualify to be in that group. Maybe Senseless Six? Levi has no sense of smell, thats a start. I dunno, who knows what's gonna happen?"

umm no...

Ummm.. no t to be mean or buthing but the fearsome four or what has become of it cannot be refferenceed to in an any means or part, to the girls that have been on the journies with us. you have been part of the journy but in the terms of the summer it was the Vlad, levi, joe, steve summer with dave going to tennesee and getting fucked up. we are will be and were a group of people who met in life and had our time together this is not to say that times are ending but that the times we had will be forever remembered. we are the people who taught ourselves more about "us" and each other, than any 57 min class we ever took in high school (or that vlad missed or only showd up for half of). It is sad that there were people that were replaced. but it is the nature of those who believe they know what is important. there are the career oriented, and those who just want to be happy. i am the latter. i learned that this summer and i couldn't have done it alone. I'm back at school know with different people and different times but it is the things that the (newly revised) fearsome four taught me that i think about every day. how can we go through the present with out making reference to the past? I am not a pot head however i do enjoy the mary jane, and the good times it brought with it. and the weird times that came along with it...mom...wow...becca...
vlad you are smart, in a dumb way.
that is all i have for now.

So right

There is not a second that goes by when i don't wish i could be back at the start of the summer. Why? Cuz i would love to relive those 90 some odd days over for the rest of my life. I would do nothing different, i would still drink till i threw-up, i would still smoke till i couldn't remember getting back to my house and falling asleep, i would still act like an idiot, i would still treat people like an ass, i would do nothing to stop the situations that lead to long walks in the rain when i was act like a retard, I would still hang up on people that heard what i was saying, i would still say things like "Foggy Ghost Thing" and "It is your turn to pop it Vlad, i did it last time" and "I'm so drunk, i can't believe i drove here" and "I'm so fucked up!", I would get high with Steve the first weekend i got home from school and watch Kill Bill Vol. 1 and fall asleep, I would still make a pipe from a poster/map tube, i would still go buy beer after work, i would still smoke a joint with the Columbian guys from work, i would still bad mouth Jon for not being there, i would still ask "Is Dave going to be there...Why isn't he coming?", i would still smoke weed and drive to Rockville, i would still have those long talks on Levi's or Steve's porches about nothing, i would still get into really dumb arguments and then call up those involved and hang out later the next day, I would still disappear at parties to go throw-up in Levi's bathroom with Vlad Levi and Steve asking eachother where i was and then figuring out where i was, I would still stumble home with my three best friends by my side, I would still ask Vlad to hold my arm still so i could put the key in the keyhole, i would still spend every weekend hanging out with the three people that have become the most influential peers i have ever had, I still sit up at night wishing i was home and hanging out with them like it was the summer again, I would take a bullet (in the leg or arm) for these guys, i would stop at nothing to defend my friends, and i will say that this past summer has been a true adventure the rekindling of old friendships the strengthening of constant ones and the forming of new ones. Levi, Steve, and Vlad are the closest friends i have and i know more about them now then i every did and they know more about me. Things will be different next summer but nothing will ever top the past summer, OUR SUMMER, we will look back and compare every summer for the rest of our lives to OUR SUMMER we will never have the summer again. But we sure as hell will try!!!
