Nerve Damage.

March 7th, 2010 (04:16 pm)
current song: My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy

Hey guys! I've got some more stuff to report to you. I was going to do it last night, but I had some other things to do. Sorry.

Pete reviewed Alice In Wonderland:

"On Thursday night in Los Angeles, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Blink-182's Mark Hoppus hosted an advance IMAX 3-D screening of Tim Burton's much-anticipated "Alice in Wonderland" (just one of the perks of collaborating on a song for the film's soundtrack, we assume). They ate popcorn and wore goofy 3-D glasses, posed with a Mad Hatter lookalike on the red carpet, and afterward, took the time to write up their reactions to the film for MTV News. What can we say? They're good guys.

Here's what Wentz had to say about "Alice in Wonderland," Tim Burton's much-anticipated latest opus, which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and many others, and hits theaters today. Check out Hoppus' review right here!

"So I got the chance to go see 'Alice in Wonderland' with Mark Hoppus tonight. Before the movie began, Mark and I did a bit of a Q&A — pretty much all of our jokes went over terribly and now I wished I just had sat in my seat.

"I have to preface this by saying I am a die-hard Tim Burton fan. There isn't a single movie he has made that I don't like. I went into this thinking that it was going to be a remake, but it wasn't (apparently I had not done my research due to my excessive reading of comments on AbsolutePunk.net). What Tim did was essentially move the 'Alice' story into his own world. I don't want to give much away, but for the actors to have to work with CGI characters it appeared almost seamless. And yes, girls, Johnny Depp is still flawless in every single way. I think this is a movie I'd have to see twice to fully grasp it.

"Mark Hoppus tried the old hole-in-the-popcorn-bag trick with me. It did not work. The movie, however, did."

(I, too, really loved this movie. The art of it was fantastic, the music--as always...I adore Danny Elfman's music style--and the acting. Johnny Depp continues to be my favorite actor ever. And no, I don't think he's cute...perhaps when he was younger, but he's my favorite actor because of his acting skills. Someone once said that you know an actor is amazing when you have little to no idea what they're really like as a person. I full-heartedly believe that. And to be honest, I can only guess at what Johnny Depp's like.)


Anyway, onward to more important matters.

You're in luck if you're in Austin, Texas, on the 19th...at 11 pm. Here's why:

"Patrick will be playing a brief set at SXSW previewing new material at the Dirty Dog Bar in Austin Texas on March 19th at 11PM."

(Either Mr. Stump has someone running his almost nonexistent twitter account now, or he's starting to refer to himself in the third person. xD )

Oh, and incase you're still concerned about the status of FOB's future:

"In the ustream chat of Pete shaving the beard off, he called Andy and they both said, "Fall Out Boy has not broken up, we're on a temporary break!" So, pretty much they said what they've been saying for the longest time, just on a live chat with 2000+ people at its peak instead of a news article that can be misconstrued.

Also, Pete said that Patrick was his Patronus. <3"

But seriously, you guys. The fact that people keep bothering them about it is what makes them not want to continue the band further. If you know of anyone, or if you yourself are one of these people who are like this, please just give them room to breathe and expand their own lives as they wish.

I'm pretty sure that that's the only news I've got for you guys today. Have fun! Keep living life the way you want....don't take anyone's shit.

Peace in hair grease. (Yeah, don't ask. XD)

Oh! The new Lifehouse CD kicks major butt. And don't forget to vote for Adam Garcia on American Idol (if you're in the US). He was almost sent home this last week...let's keep him far away from ever being in that spot from now on.

Tell Hip Hop I'm Literate!

February 4th, 2010 (12:02 am)
excited

current mood: excited
current song: My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy

My life suddenly took a turn for awesome. This is strange and uncharted territory, but I like it!

I found out yesterday that I'm going to Mexico in mid-May after my sister graduates college.

I also found out yesterday that my story that's due in a week will be first to be workshopped. Normally I wouldn't mind, but this story's going to be so rushed! I've had the worst bout of writer's block! I've been able to accomplish only one page in a month and I still have no idea what the plot of my story is. So I'm kinda freaking out about it.

Since I made the decision to get over Curtis, and that I'm not going to be his friend if he's not willing to talk to me first, I haven't even thought of him. I'm totally happy with myself about this entire situation. I feel I've finally found peace by cutting him out of my life.

I had an unusually good day at school today...that is, after I tripped going up some concrete stairs to my class. After that incident, everything was fine. I was listening to Cobra as I walked around campus and that put me in such a good mood that I couldn't stop smiling. So naturally two random guys smiled and said hi to me as we crossed paths. And then my boss at Inter Library loans had me go on a hunt for lots of books that had already been pulled. I didn't really mind though. I kinda just laughed to myself a little....and danced and lip-synched to awesome songs in the aisles. And the staff elevator.

But the best thing that's happened to me this week? (Oddly enough it wasn't finding out that I'm going to Mexico.)

The best thing that happened to me was checking my school email and finding a message from my Creative Nonfiction teacher from last semester. Here's exactly what I saw:

"Hello,

I'd like to nominate your essay below for a Banks Award. You may read about it here: http://www.uidaho.edu/class/english/studentopportunities/banksawards.aspx

If you'd like to accept the nomination, please revise your essay per my comments on it and submit it according to the instructions on the attached form. Here are the pieces from Fall 2009 that I'd like to nominate:

Hess - "The Fourth Angel"
Kienke - "Words I Thought I'd Choke On"
Craner - "Vintage"
Heuring - "The Pump"

Let me know your plans and congratulations on the nomination itself--these represent, to my mind, the best work of the semester.

Brittany and Shaina - I've put your portfolios in my mailbox in Brink 201. Please pick them up this week (couldn't bear to recycle them).

Jeff"

(I'm "Kienke." I'm also "Brittany.") That's right! Apparently I'm a good writer! Who knew? But I'm all the more excited that he chose my story on how My Chem saved my life. It was possibly the most difficult, most personal, most emotional story for me to write. But it was also the most necessary. I was never so glad to talk about my depression.

I'm so happy I think I might cry. Is that crazy?

Pete kinda made the FOB fandom explode again.

"to make it perfectly clear.
i dont know the future of fall out boy. its embarrassing to say one thing and then have the future dictate another. as far as i know fall out boy is on break. (no one wants to say the “h” word). as much as i dont have a solo project, i also cant predict that id ever play in fall out boy again. not due to personal relationships as much as a band we grew apart. in this statement id like to include there is the possibility that fob will play again with out me or i will be a part of it when everyone is on the same page. it is no ones fault and there is no animosity about the decision. i felt as fans you deserve to know. there is no singular reason for this. the side projects or bands are supported by all members of the band. i am the single biggest fan of fob and if this is our legacy than so be it. i am proud of it."

Pete really should be proud! Those four guys have accomplished much more than any of them ever dreamed! They made wonderful music! They're still making wonderful music, even if they're not together at the moment. THEY'RE ON BREAK! They're only human, and Pete shouldn't be attacked for that. He's a dad..I can only imagine how difficult it was for him to be away from Ashley and Bronx for most of Bronx's first year of life.

And you know what? People do, in fact, grow apart. I may still be friends with my best friend from when I was three, but we're no longer the best of friends. As we grew older, our interests changed...we changed as people. But we're still friends. That's where the members of FOB are right now. They're all still friends. They all support each other. Andy and Joe are doing The Damned Things together. Patrick's on his own musical path. He's being a producer and exploring his talents with other instruments. Pete's being a businessman as well as doing the whole family bit. They are allowed to do this.

My Chem was in a very similar spot after the Black Parade. They were all so exhausted and their personal lives were going off in very different directions. They knew they needed to take a lengthy break or else My Chem definitely would have been no more. Here we are a few years later and they're about to release a new CD.

Have faith people. Being a true fan means supporting the members and believing they know what's best for them. It means being able to support them in their happiness. Being a true fan means we don't constantly demand new music from them 24/7.

I love these guys. Andy's one of my favorite drummers (and he reminds me of Animal, who's just simply awesome). Joe knows how to shred like no one's business. Pete is, well...he's Pete. He rocks the bass hardcore, loves the fans and writes awesome lyrics. Patrick is one of the best singers I've heard in a very long time, and he knows how to sell it on stage. I loved them the first time I heard 16 Candles. I fell in love with them all over again with each new single and CD. I Don't Care made me feel clean again when I felt violated. They keep me sane on a daily basis. There's a song for my every mood. They take my mind off things and help me to fall asleep at 3 or 4 am instead of 6 or 7 am. I have 88 of their songs, and if that's all I'll ever have, then I'm fine with that. If they aren't happy doing FOB anymore, why should we force them to do FOB? We shouldn't overdo a good thing. True fans wouldn't wring the band of their creativity and passion.

Sorry if I went off on a rant there. It just makes me furious that fans are attacking Pete for being honest! Besides, we already knew this! My anger was not directed at anyone in specific...unless you're one of the fans who hated on Pete today. Don't be hating on Pete. Don't be hating on anyone. Hate never did anyone any good.

Remember to retweet #longlivethecarcrashhearts and #believersneverdie for a trending topic! Thanks.

The World Is Ugly!

crazy

current mood: crazy

Mikey mentioned last night on Twitter that The World Is Ugly is amazing! (Ok, I paraphrased, but basically that's what he said.) But did we expect anything different? I know I didn't! But I'm dancing in my pants right now just because they're putting it on the new CD! I was sure they would, but now it's been confirmed! Yay! I know that if they weren't going to put it on the new CD, I would have cried...and then I'd go kick someone's butt. xD

Note to self: I REALLY need to get on my summer project! I'm running out of time to draw those boys and send them my letter! So what if they don't answer...I still want them to know what they've done for me.

 Ok, so I just noticed that I don't post on this page very often, but I do post to my community quite often. So if you're ever interested in what I have to say, just go to my community fall_to_romance. There's some good stuff over there. :D

current song: My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy

I think it should be early on Saturday morning now. That's when my parents told me they were going to pick me up...early. So...vague. Very nondescript. It kinda bothers me. Oh well. At least they're coming.

I have this insatiable need to write, but I have massive writer's block. Sure, it was lifted for a while earlier today. But then my best friend got on IM and then my roomie came out and started watch TV all day. So I got about 20 minutes of truly good writing time in. What a glorious 20 minutes that was. I was able to write freely...such ideas flowed from my brain to Word. What a brief 20 minutes it was. Now I'm terribly sad. I wonder if I'll be able to write better when I get home.

I want to draw again. I want to finish drawing the boys of MCR. First I have to find good reference pictures. And then I have to find a way to print them out. It seems no one I know has any ink in their printers. :( I guess that's what school does to a person. I don't know what my parents' excuse is.

Maybe that's what I'll work on, writing my letter to MCR. I know there's like no chance of the boys replying, but I just want to let them know that they saved one more life this past year. I want to let them know how much good they're doing in the world. Mostly I just want to thank them. And that's why I want to draw them. I want to give them a gift in return, so I'll send them my fan art. I know, not much of an equal trade--art for a life--but it's all I have. And they've made youtube videos saying just how much they appreciate it when people send them things. they've also assured us that if we send Jeff Watson things, he'll make sure the guys get them. I sure hope so. :)

It smells great outside. There was a tiny early summer storm. Mix in the scent of fresh cut grass and you have the sweet scents of delicious freedom that summer brings. ^_^ The only thing that would make this better is if there were lightning and thunder.

Somebody save me, please. Summer's barely begun and already I'm about to go crazy. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love the summer, but I'm currently stranded in my small apartment with my crazy sister. I don't know how I'm going to stand another five or six days...I don't think I will survive. Not with my sister asking me things like "Can you put your foot on your stomach?" while rolling around on the living room floor.

And she's going to be 23 in a month?

I fear for society.

I think this might make me cry.

And all I wanted to do today was go to the grocery store, maybe Wal-Mart and perhaps venture around the "mall" and Michael's. Is that too much to ask? Really?


Where's my savior?



Please hurry. Her shirt almost went up too far.

DIY MCR T-Shirt?

 So I'm ordering an XL MCR t-shirt so I can make it into a halter top. The only problem is, I'm not entirely sure how to do this. I have an idea, but if anyone knows for certain, it'd be cool if you could send me a message! Thanks!

 I love how Gee looks out for people! I mean how many people would stop in the middle of a song to make sure someone doesn't get trampled to death in the mosh pit? How many bands would even notice if someone fell in the mosh pit?
