I've had a bit of experience of being on the road for a length of time (3 weeks on tour w/ 5 bands... no I'm not in a band, but I was traveling w/ them) and it is a bit of a rude awakening to see how petty people can be, especially away from the comforts of home and how things look behind the scenes. What may look like a tight knit group on stage every night could be literally imploding behind the scenes, w/ in-fighting, cattiness and sulking. I think Tourgasm is showing how difficult a situation like this is... and I'm actually enjoying it (partly b/c I'm not in the middle of it, heh).
I think most of us are going to agree on the fact that (at least so far) Jay Davis is a pain in the ass. And what makes matters worse, he's not funny. I'm sorry, I try to give people a chance... but no, dude. I can remember when I went to see Tourgasm (in Syracuse, woo!) that I could almost hear the crickets chirping while he was on. Not a funny guy. I had gone into that night knowing I was a fan of Gary & Dane already, and deciding that I could be a fan of Robert Kelly as well. I know Bobby can be, as they call him, an "instigator", but I think Jay can't let thinks just roll off his back. He's too damn sensitive.
I laughed my ass off when they went horse-back riding. Gary on that horse... seriously, I was crying w/ laughter. "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoooooaaaaa... hey guys, maybe tomorrow we could swim w/ some surly dolpins?". Yeah, that man is hilarious. And I'm sorry, but he's the sexiest 6'6" Jew I've ever seen. With hair blessed by God. ;) And of course Dane in the shower, hell-o.
Anyway, it's not the best show... but I'm still keeping it on my DVR record list.
