|It’s a bad idea to try to understand my post titles. The have no absolutely no relation to the actual posts whatsoever. |

I’m in such a band documentary kind of mood right now, I just had to write about it. 😐

Seriously though, all i want to do is curl up in my blanket (WHY is it so cold! It’s only November!) with my laptop and loads and loads of tea, and just watch all the band documentary’s and DVD’s that I can. But I can’t do that, ’cause

1) It’s 12 am, and while time is never a hindrance, ’cause it’s not like I can sleep either ways  but I have to be up at 6 tomorrow(I’ve forgotten what a real Sunday feels like, I hate you November weekends), and only, only if i put my headphones on and try to fall asleep now, I’ll most probably (hopefully!), be able to fall asleep by 3 am. Thank God for sad songs.

2) My DVD’s (the ones I have) are in another room. And I’m really cozy and comfy in my blanket right now with FatDog on my feet. I’d be crazy to move right now. (and i’m gonna need to go to the bathroom in exactly 3….2…1…! Ofc).

3) H is watching the Manchester United match online, ’cause Dad mad him switch off the TV seeing that he has a practical exam tomorrow. As if that would stop him. 😀 BUT, i lost the game of Stone, Paper, Scissors so he gets unchallenged internet usage. And both of us can definitely not watch videos at the same time, uninterrupted that it. So youtube is out of the question too.

*sigh* What must one do when one feels like just enjoying their favorite bands goofing off and throwing wet toilet paper at passerbys from their hotel room, TPing their band mates room, breaking a hotel table and then hiding the pieces (they’re under the sofa), and returning a foul smelling Chicken Fricassee to the kitchen via their window and through the skylight? What? 😀

FYI, all of the above band exploits are just from Frat Party at the Pankake Festival, which is Linkin Parks first DVD, and if you love LP, and you’ve not yet seen this, you really need to. Like really really, ’cause this is one the best things I’ve ever seen!!!

It’s classic funny Linkin Park. Like they always are 🙂  AND there’s the Easter Eggs! Seriously, trust LP to hide stuff, conduct scavenger hunts, and just make stuff fun.

BUT, i can’t see it now, ’cause of warm bed and my sad Rock, Paper, Scissors skills.

We should have played Rock, Paper, Scissor, Lizard Spock.

I think I would have won that.

With my mad skills for all things not normal.

Nobody Puts Baby in The Corner – Fall Out Boy

I’ll be your best kept secret 
And your biggest mistake.
The hand behind this pen relives a failure every day.

I don’t have a Lawyer,and hopefully no one will sue me.

6 Nov

OR

The day my iTunes shuffle decided to be nice to me and play good songs, one after the other. 😀

Seriously, I hate putting my iPod or any other music player on shuffle, ’cause I have songs in ’em that I don’t really listen to anymore, they pop up all of a sudden and that just ruins it. I didn’t even the realise the friggin thing was on shuffle!. Anyway, it’s like one of those moments thingys. Songs.

It started with –

Our lawyer made us change the name of the song so we wouldn’t get sued – Fall Out Boy 
Honey this mirror, isn’t big enough for the two of us – My Chemical Romance (This song is so so apt today, it’s ridiculous.)
Baby Dracula – Scarling.
 The Capitol – Good Charlotte
Sons Gonna Rise – Citizen Cope
Victimized – Linkin Park
Reinventing the wheel to run myself over – Fall Out Boy
Thirsty and Miserable – Black Flag
Wicked Game – Three Days Grace
Famous Last Words – My Chemical Romance (I get a mini heart attack each time this comes up on shuffle)
Post Blue – Placebo
Called Out In the Dark – Travis
Wouldn’t it be good – Danny Hutton Hitters (Pretty in Pink OST)
Seize the Day – Avenged Sevenfold  
Something in my eye – Turin Brakes
Blackout – Linkin Park
My Boy builds Coffins – Florence and the Machine
Ready for love – Mindless Self Indulgence
I can’t make up my mind – The Zombies 
To The End – My Chemical Romance
Thank God for Esteban – Panic! at the Disco
What Am I to say – Sum 41

I’m tired now, and i really do have better things to do. No, seriously. You might think it’s fun for me to sit and write down song titles that came up on shuffle, but I only have so good memory skills, and there were loads more and I have better things to talk about.

Today was H’s birthday! PARTAY TIME! Not really. He has an exam tomorrow. So we just got cake, which was awesome frigging nommy! (word jumble, ’cause I can do so) Butterscotch Cake, I need to give you more credit, ’cause damn! I shouldn’t have thought of cake, I’ll have to go and eat some now. :/ Maybe I should get some coffee too, to go with the cake.

Coffee reminds me of Gerard Way, and the way the twitter verse goes crazy each time he tweets something, even if it’s just, “Coffee”. I think everyone is scared that if they don’t reply to, and praise every tweet he makes, he’ll leave twitter land again, never to be heard again for a long long time, or till he gets bored enough to tweet again, whichever comes later. 😀 Don’t get me wrong, I was excited too when I checked my phone and saw he’d stepped back into the realm, but I can’t, and maybe don’t even want to, fangirl over single tweet he makes. I don’t think I have enough energy to do that. I think this is a sign that I’m growing old. I’m not judging anyone who does so by the way to each his/her own. And whatever makes him stay here, he does say funny stuff sometimes 😀

Just a reminder – BATMAN FTW!!

Yep.

to the batmobile . . . . . . . . . . 

Linkin Park. It starts with, Hybrid Theory.

|WARNING – This post is going to be long, sappy and maybe even unbearable in some points. If you think you can handle it, read on, If not, well it’s not even really thaaat bad. Give it a try. It’s gonna be a lot like https://perceivedorder.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/thank-you-my-chemical-romance-for-bringing-us-your-bullets-so-we-could-give-you-our-love/ |

2001 

My brother had a friend. (Annoying, but now I’m kinda grateful to him) That friend had an elder brother, who , in the year of 2001, wanted to start a band. So he was way into bands that were just starting out, trying to figure out what it would take for them to make. (Long story short, he formed the band, they covered stuff, and then the summer vacation got over. It was a classic, Summer of ’01). So he used to create these CD’s filled with videos and songs, and then get his brother to distribute them to the people he knew in order to get their feedback on what they liked most about the bands.

So, one day, in November (he kept making those damn CD’s, maybe hoping to take off next summer!) he came over with another one of those CD’s, and as i didn’t want to study, this was like a blessing. So I sat down with them, with pen and paper in hand to take notes, and we started the CD. There was Incubus, and some random stuff (do you really expect me to remember every single detail?! Is this not creepy enough that I remember so much from that day!) So yeah, we’re watching the CD, and then this video starts, and this intro starts. And its Piano and something, and there’s this guy, with blonde hair walking out of this tunnel (At first, I thought it was Eminem). And all three of us are just sitting there watching it.

Now there’s a guy in black, with red and black spiky hair, and he’s in this desert-ish setting, and there are thorns and vines shooting out of the ground, and he’s rapping, and blonde guy is singing, and we’re just sitting and staring at the screen. Then the guitars kick in, and there are 6 guys, on a tower, which is basically this giant stone lady, and she Gargoyles (awesome!) on her head, and they’re playing there, and I know, then, as i’m sitting there staring at this, and the music, and “In the end, it doesn’t even matter. . . .  I knew. This band had me hooked. It actually took me some time to find out what they were called. It was a ripped video, so I knew the song was In the End by Linkin Park . But , at that time, I thought Mike Shinoda was Linkin Park 😐

2012

The thing is that, if you have a favorite band, or a favorite artist, anything can get you hooked. Anything. But that doesn’t also always have to be the case. Sometimes, it takes time to get to know and love a certain kind of music. (Like, it took me time to like Good Charlotte). But, with Linkin Park, like with My Chemical Romance, there was instant thing. For MCR, it was just the name of a song that got me intrigued, with Linkin Park, it was a video.

11 years. Wow. That’s almost half my life. For that long I’ve loved this band, that have given me  Hybrid Theory and Meteora, they’re angry and emotional and just so raw, there’s Minutes to Midnight, people complained, I still don’t get why, you have Leave out All The Rest, that almost gets me to tears each time, and you have Bleed It Out, the live version of which makes sing along with them! and this together with A Thousand Suns, are I think 2 very unappreciated albums. Living Things, is brilliant! It’s amazing and wonderful and I am so proud of the fact that they’ve grown and developed so much, from Crawling to Castle of GlassHybrid Theory. Whether you’re a Linkin Park fan or not, chances are that if you’ve heard about Linkin Park, then you’ve heard about Hybrid Theory. Almost everyone has, it is after the BEST SELLING DEBUT ALBUM of THE DECADE. Yeah. You heard that right.

My Hybrid Theory CD is so worn out, I rarely even take it out of  my cupboard now. It’s like a keepsake of my childhood. And one of the most valuable things I own. Its just filled with so much, I don’t wanna use the word emotion, but that seems to be the only one that fits here. And you can relate to it. Anyone can. Growing up, the troubles, the tough times, you relate to it. And that’s what makes Hybrid Theory so special. Papercut and Points of Authority, have always been my favorites, though the video for Papercut did spook me out a little when I first saw it, (11!  Keep that in mind!) , and when the included With You in the setlist again this year, i did a little Whoop! in my room. Crawling, that’s playing in the background now, listen to it. With your good headphones on (is it just me, who has two of ’em?) . Just close your eyes and listen to it. I get Goosebumps when I do that. And the number of times I’ve sung Runaway to myself, trying to keep all my anger inside. Music helps me keep my emotions in, its helps me stay calm. A Place for my Head, which is playing right now, “you try to take the best of me, Go Away!” , when Chester screams in this,and there’s By Myself,  I’m in awe of his voice. Even after all these years. Chester Bennigton has, without a doubt, on of the most amazing voices in the world! Mike Shinoda‘s rapping, (he didn’t start singing till Minutes to Midnight) , Brad Delson‘s epic guitar backing the song and Rob Delson, who is seriously unappreciated, its all Chester and Mike, for most of the fans, :/  and, ofcourse Mr. Hahn! Dude is epic. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Phoenix wasn’t there permanently till Meteora.

You know, “I brought you my bullets . . . .”, was so much easier for me to talk about, becuase of how hard it to define it. Hybrid Theory, with all its easy definitions and descriptions is a struggle for me to talk about, because its not about it fitting into one particular musical style for me. For me its about an album that I connected with me, that gave me songs I can vent my anger to, because songs listen and understand with you. And I don’t have words to explain that bond. It’s more than genres and nu metal for me, it’s more about an album that was there for me, when i needed support and someone who would get me. And Hybrid Theory got me. And helped me. And I really don’t know how to explain that. With words like these, that gave me strength and were with me as i grew up, how can I even begin to explain something like that?

But I know just what it feels like,to have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside.
A face that awakes when I close my eyes,a face that watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall.

I find the answers aren’t so clear,Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense,I find bliss in ignorance

When things go wrong I pretend the past isn’t real

You like to think you’re never wrong,you have to act like you’re someone
You want someone to hurt like you,you want to share what you have been through

without a sense of confidence and I’m convinced that there’s just too much pressure to take

I wanna run away,never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth,instead of wondering why

How do you think I’ve lost so much,I’m so afraid that I’m out of touch
How do you expect… I will know what to do,when all I know Is what you tell me to

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far,but in the end
It doesn’t even matter

I’m so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this

The memory now is like the picture was then 
When the paper’s crumpled up it can’t be perfect again

Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown
Eventually break down

I’ve said this about 2 or 3 times now, but its a fact, songs are like time capsules. And Hybrid Theory, in each and every song, has a part of me. I feel the same sense of belonging today, as I did 11 years back. I listen to Hybrid Theory, and i find Somewhere I Belong ❤ 😀 

Hybrid Theory started the journey for me, it gave the teenage me a place to vent, Meteora just cemented it, Minutes to Midnight was a calm in the storm. A Thousand Suns was like a breath of fresh air, and Living Things continues that. Like I’ve said before, I’m not done growing up.

12 years of Hybrid Theory! 

I’m so old. *facepalm*

this post has no title

20 Apr

it really doesn’t. cause i have no idea what to even write about. nothing is happening in my life worth writing about. NOTHING!! i mean, c’mon, there should be something funny/lame/happy/annoying going on that i can put down here, but nope, i’ve got nothing.

oh yeah, just a month left! and no i’m starting to feel it, the whole oh my god! i spent 4 years of my life here! i’ll miss my friends scene. I’m kind of glad though, if i hadn’t been even a little sad, i would be heartless. even if the place sucks, studies are boring, food is bad etc. etc. i have some pretty amazing friends. i’ll miss them a lot! Also, this place did help me become a better person, so that is really big thing 🙂

oooh! before i forget, i won a contest today! it was twitter ( who would’ve thought?) and i won the new LINKIN PARK CD – LIVING THINGS! how amazing is that?!?! finally i won something, its usually my brother who gets lucky, though i think winning an iPhone 4S is beyond the scopes of just lucky.

Ciao, for now, and i’ll be back when i actually have something worthwhile to say/write about. I leave you with this, enjoy!

Stuff i wish i had –

28 Feb

|| its not all stuff as can be seen from No. 1 , except for the heartless out there who consider them just ‘stuff’. ||

1. Terminator.

i have always wanted to have my own terminator. why? because its a terminator, need i say more.

and for all the non believers out there, just know this, the era of the skynet will come. We already have talking phones. ( i have my eye on you Siri.)

2. Skynet.

^^ is stuff. ruthless and coldblooded. why do i want it? incase my terminator breaks  i need something that can build it again. and maybe it might decide to spare me if i’m nice enough to it.

3. Batmobile.

It’s the batmobile dude!!!

4. Iron man’s Workshop

Its filled with ‘stuff’ , hence, it too is stuff. amazing,cool , and intelligent stuff.

5. Light Saber

i need a real one cause –

a) its real.

b)i don’t know how to make that light saber-ish sound. the whole woosh woosh, or whatever. so i need a real one.

6. Transformer

In case the terminator, and skynet decide to turn on me, i need someone to protect me.

also i ❤  Optimus Prime.

7. delorean

8. Pass to see all my fav. bands live, as many times as i want

the Pass is a thing. mua-hahahaha!

9. Car

10. A hair straightner

11. Sword.

12. Dragon

i know this is not stuff, defintely not, but i just can’t resist! i really really want a dragon. all i have is a dog.

13. Phoenix

and lastly,

14. Throne

i have a sword,drgaon/phoenix,transformer,terminator/skynet and the batmobile, who am i kidding! i would be the owner of the world! i defo need a throne.

with my phoneix/dragon on one side, and the terminator on the other with the transformer keeping watch over it. life would be perfect.

3 weeks + a lot of pain =

24 Feb

maybe i new talent?

yeah, i doubt it, i am always one to jump to conclusions without thinking stuff through, just cause i can paste stuff on cardboard and then paste it on my wall does not mean, that i have a talent, it means  i’m idle. but in this case i needed to do this stuff to make sure to get my feelings out after the loss that i went through. its still hard for me, and i cry everyday, but looking at what i made makes me feel like i’ve gone out and dedicated something to her, its not much, but its a start.

Ladies and Gentlemen, its now time for show n tell! —-

^^ the real view. taken by me.

^^ my cupboards. i finally decided to clean them out. this usually involves me just throwing all the stuff onto the floor, after which i decide to give half the stuff away, out the remaing half goes into the cleaning basket and only a quarter out of the original goes back in there. but atleast its neat and tidy. and i require new clothes now, having given half of them away yesterday.

^^ the wall right above my bed( i don’t have a proper bed, just 2 mattresses on the floor, my parents say i live in the hostel so it doesn’t really matter 😐 but it i’m used to it like this now, more cosy. ) basically all i did was print out loads and loads of album covers and then stuck them onto cardboard squares. the basic theme of all of this is, black, magenta and golden, but you can’t see it here. for the borders i used glitter, purple, blue, silver, red etc. glitter (the powdered kind). so its like this massive collage. the main focus is on Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance, as can be seen in the center, and to the sides of it are lyrics from 2 of my fav songs – Helena and Breaking the Habbit.

^^ dang it! i forgot to flip it! this is the complete wall, my headboard, if you must, and whats written on the top is – the future is bulletproof, the aftermath is secondary, do it now and do it loud, killjoys make some noise!!! from NaNaNaNa by MCR! i love this intro to the song by Dr. DeathDefying!

^^ this is on the side wall. “We’ll Carry on”, is from Welcome to the Black Parade, and its kinda defining how even though she’s gonna we’ll make sure her memory carries on.

^^ complete side wall, and i forgot to flip this too! this is like the main thing, cause when you enter the room, this is what you see, and it has large album covers like Meteora, The Black Parade, Life Starts Now, Good Morning Revival. some of my fav. albums. 🙂

^^ a close up of the lower portion. 🙂

i know its not something amazing or awesome, i never intended it to be so. it was meant to be like a pain relief for me, and it did kinda work, it kept my mind of stuff, and i really needed that.
