    The coolest dude around, can't believe he turned down an offer to play angel dust in its entirety live during the reunion, Everything's ruined live would have been amazing

    Reunion without Jim? Definitely possible...Jon Hudson is obviously quite capable of filling Jim's shoes. That being said, I still love Angel Dust more than any other FNM album, and a large part is due to Martin's guitar work.

    Reunion? No way. He's too busy trying to grow, like, the world's 2000th largest pumpkin or something.
