Sara's long overdue yet extremely brief thoughts on MCR's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. So this is a bit different, isn't it? John & Sam hated it straight away, and initially both Sean and I thought it was. Well. Very safe sounding. before I really listened to it over and over again, there wasn't a lot I liked about it save for a few of the catchier songs. Just musically, it's less interesting & has less hooks, not that it isn't well-executed, and Plantetary GO seems to take a strange sojourn into disco land while there's overall less Gerardesque singing and strangely a lot of synth and doubled Geerad vocals but it still gels pretty well.

Agreeing with [ profile] moondarri here: it's a repeater. I'm still not too keen on Scarecrow, but Danger Days is quickly joining my jams playlist :) Despite the above bitching, I've learned not to be so srs bsns about it and embrace the technicolor rockage!

And catching up on the Big Finish audios I've been lax on picking up the past, oh, most-of-the-year, I'm again awash in Doctor Who love, especially my boys Five and Eight :3 Big Finish finally convinced Janet Fielding to come back to the fold and so there's new episodes with Five, Nyssa, Turlough, and Tegan omfgy ^__^ Eight has a new companion who I haven't really warmed up to yet (Lucie was a hard act to follow), but I do get Paul McGann being deliciously bitchy and snappish as the Doctor so it's a nice trade off. And it was just announced on the Classic Who official Twitter that the remastered Mara Tales are going to be released imminently fucking finally. Love me some floppy hair!Five and evil!Tegan.

I have not yet watched this year's Christmas special, so NO SPOILERS YO, but I do understand there is Michael Gambon and apparently it's the best ep since Blink or so I hear and that is MUY EXCITING. I must rewatch series 5 <3

It's been a few days, Dad's been better, so I'm doing better, so let's move on, shall we?

I'm terribly disappointed with Bob's departure from MCR, but I'm not going to linger on it, cuz even if it feels like things are falling apart with all my bands, I move past it, I find something positive and bright and fall in love again. I'll miss him like hell, but they're not breaking up. Even if it's not his wrists, there's only so long you can go in a band with that much intensity before you get burned up by it. idk, I've already accepted it, I'm okay.

And there's this game that just came out called Heavy Rain that's not really a game at all. I elaborate. minor spoilers )

Or, have some more HD gameplay

Ugh, uuuugggghhh, I am so in love with Heavy Rain. And there's going to be downloadable content, unf. Please let there be someone else who's played/is going to play this?

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.

Okay, so. As if he wasn't already, Gerard is made of even more gay and awesome than ever before.

Just when the fandom is going crazy and everybody's fucking bagging on Gerard, he has to go and handle a nasty situation with utmost class and make me love him just a bit more. Gerard will always have my respect.

From a locked entry on [ profile] ohnotheydidnt

Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance spoke at the Oxford Union tonight, in a question and answer session. He seemed very nice, articulate and funny.

I had considered asking him about his response to Marilyn Manson's comments in which he called the band sad and pitiful and accused them of ripping him off. Someone had just asked a question relating to events such as the Virginia Tech shooting and Columbine, in which blame was placed on figures like Marilyn Manson, and Gerard had spoken about how Marilyn Manson's worldview seemed to be that the world was a very ugly, hateful place, whereas MCR are more hopeful, and try to find the beauty in life. Feeling that this was a good time to ask my question, I asked Gerard what his response to MM's comments was. He kind of laughed, as if he'd been expecting it. He spoke about how angry a person Marilyn Manson seems to be, although intelligent. He then said that he didn't see that they were particularly similar in look, and then said "We certainly don't sound the same. You can take that however you want". He also seemed to make a slight dig at MM later in the session, after someone had asked him about the Daily Mail's scaremongering about emo bands, and the people who claimed that MCR were some sort of cult. He said that they didn't want to be a cult, but that certain other musicians who had been mentioned tonight would probably like to have people worshipping them.

In other news, his favourite historical figure is Joan of Arc and his favourite US President is Abraham Lincoln (who is "awesome"). And his reaction to some of the sexism, homophobia and general prejudice he'd witnessed in the punk scene was to say "Ok, I'm gonna wear make-up and touch dudes". Oh, and his most embarrassing moment on stage was when he knocked his belt buckle, causing it to come undone and his trousers to fall down. Apparently he was wearing really bad underwear at the time.

Okay, I'm a little bored, and I might've sprung the whole "ZOMG MCR FUCKING RULESSSS!!!!11!one" thing on you guys, so to make up for confusion, I've written a primer on who they are and why they are the most awesome mofos on the planet (with ample respect to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert ^__~), complete with pictoral assistance :) Warning, this is quite long.

Oh teh angst :) LOVE the black n' white, and Gerard's facial expressions make me wanna cry, and seeing the band members falling was pretty cool. Overall, it's very aesthetically pleasing. I approve ^__^

On the topic of angst (I might as well make this a legit post, non?), a list of things I miss:

~My dad
~Band alumni
~Tolerant people
~People who actually care about the instrumental music department
~A brain that isn't constantly thinking about one thing or another
~Good singers in the drama department
~Good movies
~The days I used to enjoy working
~Stress-free days

[music|Summer Skin--Death Cab for Cutie, Plans]

I'm either utterly insane or the luckiest gal on the face of the planet.

My brother and I were talking about the My Chem concert (coming up on Sunday!), and I made an offhand/half-joking remark about sticking around afterward to try to meet the band.

"Hell no," John says. "There's no way I'm staying in Anaheim that late on a Sunday. I've got work on Monday."

"Awww, you mean we can't just take two cars?" I say.

"Sara, if you wanna meet the band, go to another show."

So I look up the available tickets, and they're doing a show a The Forum in LA the day before the show I've got tickets for. So I bought a ticket. Meaning I'm seeing My Chemical Romance live in concert two nights in a row *dies* YAYYYYY!

I was half serious about the meet-the-band thing too, so I'll see what happens. Maybe I'll bring my art book and give Gerard my drawing of him *ponders*
