Mmmm saw that today, he got a bit cancelled over some comments a couple of years ago, wonder if that had an effect on his business?

His life sounds like it's about to take a turn for the better, frankly.

It is a really interesting question as to how much you can or should separate a creator from the product or art. I probably wouldn't buy something new from him or JHS, just like I'd struggle to pay to watch a movie that Kevin Spacey is getting a cut from. But on the second hand market, I'd consider it to be distant enough that I could just see an OCD as a great pedal.

JHS isn't liked because they're partnered with a pretty a radical organization called IHOPKC (International House of Prayer) which is a superchurch-type of religious sect that's had some questionable investigations into their practices. They're considered extreme by even a lot of Christians. They're pretty homophobic and they supported the "Kill the Gays" bill in Uganda to an extent. They're featured in the documentary "God Loves Uganda" which shows a lot of what they're up to and criticized for and documents it.
Not sure how accurate that is
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.
