"Yesterday Ashlee Simpson gave birth to a baby boy, and she named him Bronx Mowgli, after the borough in New York city, And the boy in The Jungle Book. Yeah. In a related story, Ashlee Simpson is an idiot."

Ahaha, Conan O'Brien, you are a god.

Ya'll ain't gonna get much out of me except that that name? Is fucking retarded, people. Okay, I may be being a trifle too harsh, but this kid is going to grow up to be a real person someday, and no one will take him seriously.

Bronx Mowgli Wentz, meet Apple, Moon Unit, Zappa, and the gang.

Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[ profile] lafeelivresque heralded me with the letter C. I will go back and edit these to include the songs when I've rebuilt my iTunes library, so sorry for the delay.

California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade - The Decemberists

Caring is Creepy - The Shins

Cemetary Drive - My Chemical Romance

Changes - David motherfucking Bowie

Clarity - John Mayer

At this point, it's pretty much useless of me to make further comments because I know people, bewildered, will complain as to why I'm trying to harsh their squee, and honestly I don't care anymore. Say what you will about my being childish or negative or whatever, I don't like it and that's that. You won't see me posting about it anymore, and I've got too many other things and other people that make my world go around to let something that's going on with someone else to bring me down. I'm done.

And now, a Five, Eight, and Ten picspam, because it makes me feel better. )

New Panic song, Mad as Rabbits )

That Green Gentleman )

Newsflash: apparently Ryro can sing now? yes, he did do backing vocals, but he never did lead singing and this new development pleases me in ways that give the music nerd in me great joy, it must be said. Shared singing duties! HARMONY!!!

I can has new found love for Ryan Ross? Yes. Yes I can.

Which gives me a few thoughts.

Thought the first: as of this very moment, I am completely enamored of Panique a la Discotheque. I havent heard We're So Starving yet, and rewind to last summer and I said

Another note, and I feel I MUST say this. While I'm overjoyed that they did a cover of "The Weight" in concert...*listens to new Panic! songs* *is not impressed*

At that point Panic was playing festivals with "Back to the Streets" (lol) and the beginning of the gay hippie cowboys look and Ryan was the Mother Teresa of emo with his soup kitchen activities. I have since repented, as I hope my love for Nine in the Afternoon is quite obvious now. Panic's love letter to the Beatles is endlessly endearing, Penny Lane-esque horn overlaying and all *draws hearts* I'm not that crazy about Mad as Rabbits (see above), but The Green Gentleman is all kinds of brilliant and makes my heart happy. And is that a bass I see in Brendon's hands (MaR)? I believe so. On top of that, JWalk is singing in MaR too? ASDFJKL; YES. FULL OF YES AND WIN.

(sidenote: what is it about Jon Walker that immediately draws people to him? I'll be the first to admit I don't know a ton about him, nor have I watched a lot of Panic interviews and such because Ryro's monotone gets to me, but you just look at him and think HOW SO AWESOME? I don't get it, but I don't mind either.)

Still waiting on the new age makeup Wentz kept talking about in relation to Panic; I expect to see it when HCT starts, though. Also, Panic is swinging their sound with wild, unbridled success in my eyes. They still sound pop, and I'll miss the techno-ish stuff from AFYCSO, but the new direction their heading in seems natural in some weird, twisted way I can't really get a grasp on at the moment. Hell, they sound vaguely country at times. A thought which terrifies me a bit because I despise country, but they--I don't know--make it tolerable? Not in the same way that, say, The Decemberists do, but I'm really digging their sound right now. Really.

Thought the second: harmony.

Why is it in FBR there is a distinct lack of it? Or, lack of notice-ableness? I'm fairly certain that Panic is the only FBR band that has two at least semi-capable singers to bring it to the table live. For example, while I love Patrick's voice and he writes lovely melodies which he sets against another track of him singing the harmony, there's a certain homogeneousness to it, and live you don't get the studio experience because A) Pete's a screamer, not fit to carry a tune that Patrick writes, and B) as far as I know, Joe can't either, and C) Andy just going to stay over here drumming kthxbye. Studio stuff w/Panic has Brendon doubling up for the vocals, sure, but he's got Ryan to cover the harmonies/miscellaneous vocals in concert, so not a lot is lost in translation.

For all the slick production both bands have, musically Panic is kicking FOB's ass.

Given, I've never thought Patrick was the musical genius people tend to exaggerate him as, in relation to FOB's music; it's very straightforward, well-produced, quite simple, usually, very listenable. Where the genius comes in is producing and knowing how to use himself and others in the music; that's the key. It worked wonders with Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, and The Hush Sound. Now, I'm not saying Ryan (or whoever is in charge of Panic's music in general) writes better music than FOB; that's a matter of opinion. The music is written to suit the style and musical ability of the band.

And it makes me a bit sad (but not much, because I love both of them) that Panic's potential is overshadowing FOB's musicianship. Prove me wrong, someone?

On a slightly different note, Pretty. Odd. needs to leak now.

EDIT I'm making this edit now only because it was only after I left for work that I thought of it (and I haven't read any comments yet), but I'm not trying to start any wank or start a Who's Better argument (FOB is my favorite FBR band by far, it's just my opinion that Panic are a better bunch of musicians); I mwant it as it applies to all of FBR, FOB just got singled out because they're an umbrella for the label. Okay, off to read comments!/EDIT

Okay, that anonmeme is seriously bumming me out.

I can't stand that there just seems to be this bastion of people that apparently are so shallow about appearances that they'd attack Patrick for being overweight/balding/etc. People are so obsessed with thin, sculpted, prepared looks that anything that's bigger than a size 2 is automatically disgusting, apparently; Patrick doesn't stand a chance.

It just...hurts, you know? I mean, I'm offended on his behalf, but it's not like we can all meet that kind of standard. It's horrible to think that all attractiveness boils down to what you look like rather than everything else that actually makes up a person. People would rather have nothing where there could be so much.

Fuck you, fandom. Fuck you sideways with a wooden spoon.
mezzanineview: (absorbbleedbreathedevourlivedie music)
This is the reason why I refuse to believe any of this fandom wank. FOB isn't breaking up. Pete can get married if he wants to, regardless of if it's a good idea or not (it's not, by the way), and the band will still be. This is just like when MCR started getting married off and bandom went BOOM. The sky is not falling, people. Chillax a bit.
mezzanineview: (crucify me.)
havent slept in days.
think i am starting to crack.
my room is thrashed, covered in jelly beans and i almost cried while watching the nanny diaries- i think its not funny anymore.
sick of watching what genius is.
sometimes genius is being completely ordinary.
when i look up at the sky i want to eat the stars.
its daylight again, everything goes back to being boring.

nothing too much to say. just gonna watch the world spin this morning.

Two things. So Lafee and I have decided he's totally talking about Patrick right there. And also, this foot-breaking thing is probably getting to him more than he's letting on D:

[music|Church of Hot Addiction--Cobra Starship]

Feeling a bit better today, due to the fact that The Academy Is... and Gym Class Heroes are good for the soul, while their kooky cousin Cobra Starship just wants me to shut up and dance <3 BTW, anyone hear of CSS's song "Awww Dip"? Apparently it was released only on the TMNT soundtrack, and when I found it on iTunes I was all "OMG MOAR COBRA AWESOME!!!" Anyways, good song, check it out if you haven't already.

Going away for a day or two to play in my dad's marching band and visit in general; it's been far too long since I've seen him. John and Sam are coming with, too (roadtrip!) and no doubt it'll be me + Sam vs. John in a battle of who gets to choose the music. Hopefully I can use the fact that it's my car we're taking to my advantage, so Sam and I can actually listen to some FOB.

In other news, music recs!

Voxtrot--Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives

I love this band and song and I have no real reason why. It's just good :-)

Andrew Bird--Skin Is, My

Here's an odd one. Andrew Bird does a lot of straightforward indie music, but I saw him live when he opened for The Decemberists + LA Philharmonic orchestra, and he was, to say the least, odd. Again. Anyways, this song is a little eccentric, but awesome in a ADD fashion. Bonus points if you know what pizzicato violin is.

See you guys in a few.

[music|watching Casino Royale <3]

Ahaha, slash in the FOB fandom is far more pervasive than I initially thought. Sam, my bro's girlfriend, has been a FOB fan since FUCT, but I had to get her IOH and TTTYG, but anyways we have two separate conversations about FOB today. Keep in mind that she's never heard of slash before XD

Me (rocking the argyle sweatervest, w00t): Dude, I'm so jazzed to be seeing FOB again. D'you think we should make new shirts or wear the same ones as last time?
Sam: No, I think we should wear the same ones. They might recognize us.
Me: But we were, like, at least a hundred feet away from them at the concert.
Sam: *shrug*
Me: Hey, you hear about the new covers they're doing? You know that song at the beginning of Back to the Future?
Sam: Maybe, I dunno. We should probably rent it. I'm sure if I heard it I'd recognize it.
Me: Yeah, but anyways, The Power of Love? *tries to sing it, but fails miserably* Anyway, yeah, they're covering that.
Sam: That's so awesome; they did Beat It last time. It's like they're stuck in the really awesome part of the 80's.
Me: Well, yeah, Patrick's, like, obsessed with Bowie and Prince.
Sam: *laughs* Patrick's totally gay, then.
Me: *is delightfully intrigued* Don't you mean Pete?
Sam: No, man whores don't count. I could really see if Patrick was, though, just the way he carries himself. He just strikes me that way...

And then I had to go to work :/ But then later this afternoon we went to Trader Joe's and ended up on FOB again because I mentioned that Patrick was wearing argyle the first time he met Pete (and I was wearing argyle today, as I've already stated ^__^)

Sam: And then they made out.
Me: *laughs*
Sam: We probably shouldn't invite John to the concert, huh? Too much gay for him.
Me: Yeah, he wouldn't have a good time watching the unfolding of Pete and Patrick's epic love story.
Sam: *agrees and picks up soy milk*

Fandom is wonderful XD

[music|The Pretender--Foo Fighters]

So, in between bandom and good music, there is life in there somewhere; about this I do write :-)

Things are finally going in a direction I can be happy with, for once. I'm not really sure if it was any different before, to be honest, but I was just depressed for no reason, so I told myself, "Cheer up, emo kid." Even though I'm decidedly not emo, lol. So, yes, I'm happier :-)

Sunday officially marks my last day of freedom, then Monday I start my psych class at college, which I'm surprisingly stoked for. Just the prospect of having a more mature learning environment is very appealing, even if it isn't one of the more premier community colleges I'm attending, but I'm saving precious money by doing general education there, so I'm cool with it.

Sam is taking classes too, but I won't be in any of hers :-( But she's already started, aiming to be an elementary school teacher, and she's all giddy about it. And her and my bro John just got back from visiting her family in Arizona, and she got most of the rest of her stuff to bring back home here, so she's playing show and tell. It's cute XD She also brought me this black skirt with white trim, you know, those one piece kind that look like they belong in diners? It's like that. She thought it'd fit me, and it probably will, but I'll probably wear it on Halloween or on the weekends or something, just for a bit of fun.

I feel better about wearing something like a skirt now because since about six weeks ago, I've lost ten pounds *w00t* Go me. It's a lot easier to loose weight when the local Chinese take out places just got really shitty at making orange chicken, so I'm perversely grateful, lol. I'm eating less often and not as much food, too, so that helps :D

Also, I've got my first modship on LJ! *huzzah!* Erin ([ profile] thevelvetsun) contacted me to be a mod at [ profile] goodbandfic, and my application was approved. Come and have a looksee, people, but beware, we're looking for good fic, like, you have to be above mediocre to post. We're trying to get away from the masses of average fanfic, people--this is a stick up, give us the good stuff. Yes, it's modded membership, like [ profile] damnyouwentz, but at least we're accepting members. If you're rejected, it's nothing personal; we're just looking for better quality fic. And I quoth Erin: If all you're looking for is a high comment count on your stories, this might not be the best place for you.

That's the word, heed it well ;-)

But don't let it put you off from applying, get out there and drop us a line, writers! Everyone's allowed to watch the comm as well <3

On the music front, I'm proud of myself for not being as wanky about the Geetard situation as I most definitely could be, and it'll stay that way. I'll let everyone else bitch about it and you won't see another word on the subject here. I'll just be over here listening to FOB and getting my happy on, kthxbai. Otherwise, I'm getting my tickets for the Young Wild Things Tour ASAP, and I'm thinking about seeing The Decemberists again in LA at the end of November, given I have money and someone to go with me. Maybe I'll try to get the same crew together as last time, if they're not busy. Also, I'm thinking of checking out Killswitch Engage. Their video for their cover of Dio's "Holy Diver" is fucking hilarious, and I'm kind of in love with the singer's voice, so they seem chill.

Another note, and I feel I MUST say this. While I'm overjoyed that they did a cover of "The Weight" in concert...*listens to new Panic! songs* *is not impressed*

I just put about another two hundred songs on my iTunes, courtesy of The White Stripes and Foo Fighters. I know I'm late to the party on those bands, but I've repented and am ready to bask in the awesomeness.

Two last random things before I leave you all. First, anyone here into Demetri Martin? He contributes to The Daily Show, but I watched his Comedy Central special "Person." and bought his comedy CD "These Are Jokes", and he's seriously made of win, people. He has this flighty, subtle, ADD style of comedy, moving fluidly from subject to subject with accompaniment of guitar, harmonica, piano, and unnecessary bells he plays with his feet XD And he's adorkable. Here's a small sample of a typical joke:

"I was on the train and I heard this guy say to his friend, 'Man, I'm really good at checkers.' Which is the same as saying, 'Man, I'm not good at a lot of things...I suck at everything except checkers...King me, dawg."


He's very low energy and let's your brain catch up with the joke. Do yourselves a favor and check him out.

And I'm either super awesome or pathetic for reaching a new level of geekitude.

Damn you, Stump )

So, to recap, I'm happy and snuggly with my Mac. How are you all? Let me know.
