Sorum: Someone mentioned it to me. You go on Blabbermouth
Navarro: Yeah, yeah, yeah Don't read those comments, by the way.
Sorum: The people there on Blabbermouth What is wrong with them?
Navarro: Dude, welcome to my life, by the way.

Navarro: No, not anymore.
Sorum: My old lady, she makes me shut that stuff off. Some mean, mean, weird people are on there.
Navarro: Yeah, it's horrible.
Sorum: What are they doing out there?
Navarro: Nothing. I'll tell you what they're not doing, Matt. They're not making records and selling millions of them and affecting the lives [gets cut off by Matt]
Sorum: [Raising his voice] Yeah, talk about that on Blabbermouth!

Sorum: Yeah. When me and Weiland got into that pissing match a little bit
Navarro: Were there sides? Did people take sides?
Sorum: Oooo Oh, God
Navarro: Were people against you?
Sorum: Oh, man
Sorum: I got on there one night and started scrolling down
Navarro: Oh, don't scroll down. [Matt bursts out laughing.] Read the story and call it a day. Trust me.
Sorum: And it sort of like those bad reality shows, it sucked me in.
Navarro: No scrolling, please. [Laughs]
Sorum: I've gotta say it to you, people, man You didn't affect me at all. Screw you. [Laughs] I say, go get a life.
