Still Remains Launch Kickstarter Campaign

Still Remains…I think

This weekend, I had to do something I’d never imagined I’d have to do as a pet owner: I killed one of my pets, putting it out of its misery.

It was a fish. Don’t go thinking I slaughtered a cat or something. I am still busted up about it.

This fish — a black molly — was gilling one week after I did a water change; the fish was swimming sideways, and a search of the webernets suggested I change half the tank’s water.

This has nothing to do with Michigan metalcore act Still Remains seeking fan-funding for their upcoming album, but I am getting to it.

So, the fish was just floating around, and only really moving if it was disturbed. I had to put it out of its misery.

A separate internet search suggested the only ways to humanely kill a fish were either with clove oil (which acts as an anesthetic) and vodka (which then kills the fish) or blunt force trauma.

I went with option B. I still feel bad. I took a hammer, after putting the fish in a plastic bag. I said goodbye, and then took his entire face off with one swing.

I still feel really bad, but the thing was suffering. You know who isn’t suffering for their art?

Still Remains.

The band is calling on its fans for $15,000, which will fund the band’s next album,

So far, more than $7,000 has been pledged to the cause, which can be accessed here.
