    Last Train Home just became First Bus Ride To Jail. Now he can start a side project with Tripp Eisen

    • asza36

      nice.

    • Rakasta

      it’s NOT cool to joke about this when the case is still in an infant stage.

      • Abe

        “infant stage”

        my sides have left the building

      • jampola

        Abe, you and me both. Another contender for Community Service I think!

    • kturl69

      Hey! Tripp Eisen was an incredible guitarist who only got the hottest women around. I cannot tell a lie.

      • G Scotty

        you may not be able to lie, but your opinion sure smells like an asshole

  • EyeOfEveryScorn

    Murder this guy. People this weird should be killed.

    • Lern2Swim

      How about waiting until he’s found guilty to suggest murdering him?

    • Abe

      No just castration

  • jampola

    Wook, it’s Ian Watkins, not Watkin’s. I’ll just assume your auto correct messed that one up.

    • TheMediaProphet

      Is he posting from his iPhone?

    • cma3585

      Probably mistook his last name as Watkin. Since his name is Watkins, it should be “Watkins’ arrest”. I feel like lately theprp is on a massive grammar hunt.

      • jampola

        Damn straight. And seriously, what’s with the down votes? Is Otep still lurking?

      • Lern2Swim

        Actually:

        Watkins’s

        Watkins’ would imply that there is more than one Watkin and, as a group, they possess something.

      • Plethora

        I can’t believe I logged in for this but…Lern2Swim, please look us the use of apostrophes before you sound even more stupid.

      • kturl69

        I’m getting really sick and tired of these facebook newbies coming over here and trying to correct everyone. Get off your iphones and stop blaming auto correct for your retarded comments. It’s obviously user-error. Please look up, it seems fitting.

      • Plethora

        If people want to be taken seriously, they should probably put across argument in at least half decent English. Oh no, someone called me a newbie, I’m never logging in again. So you complain about people correcting others, then correct me? You the man.

      • captain nemo

        I have no clue what the guy’s last name is, but it should be Watkins’s if his name is in fact Watkins. Lern2Swin is vindicated. That being said, feel free to “Thumbs Down” learning.

      • WURST

        Jesus Christ are you guys that stupid?! Go back to grade school. You NEVER put an ‘s at the end of a last name that ends with an s. You simply put an apostrophe after the name and leave it at that. Obviously, you guys are products of grade school in the north.

      • jrr

        I can’t believe people are still arguing this. Plethora and MDP were right in saying that either way is acceptable. Bottom line, there’re a lot of nitty-gritty grammar issues like this that have no universal hard rule. As such, all the individual style guides out there determine their own means of how to handle such things.

        For example, the Chicago Manual of Style, one of the most well-known style guides, actually says to use “…s’s” if the “s” at the end of a singular possessive word is silent, and to go with “…s’” in all other cases of possessive forms of singular words ending in “s.”

        And yes, I did find this all through Google. However, I did it sometime over the course of the past few years, because, like Plethora, I know enough to know when I don’t know something, and in those cases, I actually go and try to educate myself.

    • Plethora

      Jesus fucking Christ. Please, for the sake of everyone’s sanity, look it up!

      Watkins’ and Watkins’s are acceptable but I can assure you the former is more widely used.

      • MyDarkPassenger

        As presumably the only user here with a degree in English, I’m uniquely qualified to ensure you all that Plethora is in fact correct. However, using “Watkins’s” not only looks and reads terrible, but also could only be acceptable in a colloquial non-academic setting, i.e. this website.

        If y’all wanna turn this space into a grammar nazi gathering I’m cool with that, but I’d prefer to just discuss meathead metal topics with total academic abandon. Let’s not let this Welsh pervert tear us all apart over his shitty completely ruined family name.

      • TheMediaProphet

        Golf clap for Mr. Morgan. I’m impressed.

      • G Scotty

        shouldn’t there be a comma between shitty and completely?

    • Plethora

      I appreciate the back up. However, you shouldn’t need a degree in English to know and apply these things. If I don’t know something, I look it up.

  • Watson

    I’ve heard of loving your fan base, but…

  • Justanotherpassenger

    I feel bad for all of those times they let him babysit for them.

    • MyDarkPassenger

      Kinda biting my user name there buddy. Just keep it classy so I dont get confused with a total fuckwad and we’ll be cool. I’ll do the same.

      • G Scotty

        not to nit-pick here, but something tells me his avatar leads me to believe one is a passenger of the “Maynard” variety, the other of the “Morgan”. That being said, they are similar, and he already tarnished you with that douche joke on the last thread about this topic…

        Kturl, we have a new someone to hate, you are climbing up those ranks good sir! Just keep the racist shit bottled up.

  • captain nemo

    I have both a degree in English and History, but that is neither here nor there. However, I did attend Colloquial State University.

    • WURST

      Congrats on getting degrees in gay shit.

  • posi kill

    i have a degree in big balls.

    let’s get weird.

    • captain nemo

      That was my minor.

  • planetdeath

    im speechless.
