I thought he's taunting me. Yo, are you stupid? Well, you don't register for a band, you join it. You take a test of skills, break some heads, break some legs, get a tattoo and you're in. What does register mean, is it a dance class and table manners? No, they don't work that way, like any ordinary gangbangers. They asked for a print of my ID, an income certificate, bank statements, study documents, property deeds, I filled out the paperwork WTF13, OMG666, plus the record and references. Tomorrow I get my uniform and go on the first checkup.
