Thursday singer robbed at gunpoint

Geoff Rickly, singer for currently inactive band Thursday (in addition to United Nations), has revealed that he was robbed at gunpoint in New York City this week. Rickly has provided the following details:
"So just to give the whole story: Walking home from the train to my place I was robbed. Taken at gunpoint: iPad, iPhone, passport, wallet, cards, rent money in cash (long story). Also my medicine for intense medical treatments. I'm one of many Americans who lives frugally and happily from paycheck to paycheck. This has been well documented in the past. I haven't asked anyone to help me with this except for the police. My friends and family have been there for me to the fullest. A number of kind and generous souls have elected to make donations to my Bandcamp, for one reason or another. Unexpected, unsolicited… In a particularly difficult time in my life (brutal year), a potentially devastating event has shown me so much compassion, love and humanity I feel very lucky, indeed. Thank you. xx"

anonymous 6/5/2013 6:42:16 AM

It was Tim Lambesis. He needs money for another hit.

LoydChristmas 6/5/2013 6:56:27 AM

should've asked the mugger to hold on a sec while you call the police.

LoydChristmas 6/5/2013 6:56:51 AM

brassknuckleromance 6/5/2013 7:06:42 AM

that sucks man, it was a nice statement he made about people just buying stuff from his bandcamp and thanking them instead of a kickstarter/etc. hope the best for this awesome guy.

anonymous 6/5/2013 7:09:39 AM

They stripped me naked had me lift my ball sack up so they could check underneath it, and then had me bend over and spread my ass cheeks apart so they could look inside my jerk.

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:15:16 AM

genghisjohn 6/5/2013 9:16:01 AM

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:26:55 AM

this is awesome! also that stuff about rent money in cash is a lie. it's well documented that geoff doesn't pay rent for apartments he lives in. still owes people for rent from years ago. this guy is a loser.

lambgoat 6/5/2013 9:29:31 AM

I would never carry an NYC-rent amount of cash for any reason.

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:33:43 AM

>poor >walk around with ipad and ipod

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:35:32 AM

Who cares? People get robbed all the time.

willy_wanker 6/5/2013 9:41:49 AM

anyone could have robbed this gay with a water pistol

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:44:15 AM

fck you pssy. Rich whiteboys lose shit all the time, why the fck do you deserve to get people to pay for your "necessities"? And if you live paycheck to paycheck, that means you should be fine in 2 weeks. And no way in hell somebody robbed you of your meds. STOP LOOKING LIKE A TEENAGE GIRL AND YOU'LL STOP GETTING ROBBED.

AnalButt 6/5/2013 9:46:26 AM

This'll make great lyrics to a whiny ass song

anonymous 6/5/2013 9:48:33 AM

You don't need a passport to go Chinatown, why the fck are you walking around with your passport in NY?

Hibuddywazup 6/5/2013 10:58:07 AM

At least the mugger didn't take the bag of jewels.

anonymous 6/5/2013 11:18:59 AM

anonymous 6/5/2013 3:57:46 PM

Wow, it really is war all the time out there. I bet his credit rating will undergo full collapse. I wonder if the mugger was a jet black guy.

anonymous 6/5/2013 4:41:15 PM

That's why I never hang out at gunpoint, people always get robbed.

anonymous 6/5/2013 6:35:01 PM

This is a pretty damn humble statement. He never mentioned he was poor btw. Illiterate fcks can gtfo.

anonymous 6/6/2013 8:01:02 AM

How about everyone top being buttheads and be nice?

anonymous 6/6/2013 8:19:14 AM

it was either a black guy or a wanna-be muscle-man lead singer with gay tattoos and a grudge from San Diego out on bail. You make the call.

anonymous 6/6/2013 1:34:32 PM

Run up on a sagea wit da gat like BLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYTTTT T

anonymous 6/6/2013 1:47:39 PM

This song is brought to you by an armed robbery

anonymous 6/6/2013 1:58:31 PM

How did he get robbed at gunpoint in NYC? I thought they had really strict gun laws...

anonymous 6/6/2013 3:10:51 PM

"How about everyone top being buttheads and be nice?' We would, except Geoff is an delusional and entitled jerk as well as a liar who rips people off, so we are glad he got what he deserved. Also, he chose to make this information public in a plea for attention/money, so fck that guy.

slut 6/6/2013 8:09:40 PM

If he was sitting a van in Montreal he could've gone all the way

theworks123 6/6/2013 10:46:28 PM

I feel bad for the mugger. That fcker was the one robbed. The singer can floss his gap with my dck

anonymous 6/7/2013 10:56:51 AM

You don't need a passport to go Chinatown, why the fck are you walking around with your passport in NY? He was clearly wandering the streets with a man purse aka leftover Thursday messenger bag circa 2001

RickRock 6/8/2013 6:16:09 PM


anonymous 6/9/2013 7:31:40 AM

You guys are all complete retarded fcks. Just because someone has nice things like an iPhone or an iPad doesn't make them any less frugal than the rest of us. He probably saved his money by and by for that and you guys go around and act like he's some rich boy. Get over yourselves gays.

anonymous 6/9/2013 10:48:51 AM

^ ok Geoff
