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 . . . . . . . . . .

January 2003

I’m 12, standing in the school bus, just wanting to get home after another long day of school. I generally stand close to these older kids, ’cause that way people may age trouble me less,i had no interest in talking about how cute Bon Jovi is. Yeah i wouldn’t mind talking about his music, but i hate when people pay attention to everything other than the MUSIC, surprisingly the big kids take pity on me, and let me stand near them.On this day, ( I don’t remember the exact date 😦 ) they’re talking about this band. One of the older kids’ cousins live in NYC, and they’re here for a visit. Generally cousins from US means new band merch or CD’s. And because i really have nothing better to do, standing there in the bus, i eavesdrop (yeah, i know that’s wrong, but trust me i don’t regret it), and they’re talking about Vampires. Now do keep in mind, back in 2003, Vampires were still cool, and this whole big scary thing, not sparkly ones who climb on trees. Anyways, they’re talking about ’em, and how this band has a song on the CD called Vampires will never hurt you’ and how its pretty awesome. And in that moment, i wanted nothing more than to listen to that song. I dunno why, maybe i thought that would sort of help me on the path to coolness, or maybe it was just one of things that you have to do, or know. I still have no clue why i needed to listen to song so badly. Maybe it was ’cause of the name,  ‘Vampires will never hurt you’, maybe i thought that would help me, i dunno, the fact was that i needed to listen to it. So i turned to the kids, and as politely and sweetly as i could said, ‘Can i please borrow the CD for a day.’ and they just stared at me, but then she handed me the CD. Just like that. (She’s one of my best friends, somehow sharing mutual love and admiration for a band leads to a great friendship) So, i took it home, and went straight to ‘Vampires will Never hurt you’ and listened to it. and then again, and then again and basically for an hour all i did was keep listening to that song. As a result of which, i only got till ‘Early Sunsets…‘ and by then it was time to sleep. I didn’t get to listen to ‘This is the best day ever‘ , ‘Cubicles‘ and “Demolition Lovers‘, until a year later.

I returned the CD to her the next day, and didn’t ask for it again. I wanted the next time i listen to it, be when i get the CD for myself. Which happened a year later when i bought “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge” and “I brought you my Bullets, you brought me your love”.  It still is really hard to find MCR CD’s here, but luckily, even i have a few cousins who live in the US. 😉

 

July 23rd, 2012

 I’m sitting here today, with my almost 8 year old copy of Bullets. It’s scratched and looks like it’s been played a million times. Which it most probably has been. My mum keeps telling me that i change the case, but i just stare at her for even suggesting something like that. Luckily, both my parents are music fans, albeit music different from what i listen to, but they understand what it means to love a band, to love a song. They may not give me money to buy CD’s and band merch, but they never stop me too. As, Demolition Lovers plays in the background, i can’t help but think, they made it 10 years ago. Gerard sang this song 10 years ago, Frank wasn’t there during the recording, i don’t even know if he was a part of MCR yet. They were all young, just a few years older than i am now. They’d all tried to be something and had failed, but they didn’t give up. They decided to give it one last try. And the result of this last try is what’s playing in my CD player right now. ‘Bullets’ may not have done well commercially, but every MCR fan has a special place for it in their heart. It’s the beginning of My Chemical Romance. It all started with Skylines and Turnstiles, which is playing now.

‘I brought you my bullets, you brought me your love’, never got the recognition it deserves. It’s underrated. Maybe its ’cause its so complicated, so random, so without a theme. Like, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge is about fitting in, being who you are, acceptance, The Black Parade is about death and dealing with it, and also hope, somehow people always mostly fixate on the death part and Danger Days is mad,wild, and basically just brilliant. There’s no single theme to I Brought you my bullets, you brought me your love.  And that’s what i love about it.  The randomness is exciting ’cause each song has a different feel. But , i guess that’s also why there are people who don’t like it.

I was 12 when i first heard Bullets, Gerard was 24 when he wrote the lyrics. I didn’t get at first, in fact i’m sure that i still don’t understand it completely. But, its been 8 years. I’ve grown up with it, understanding it. Each song is different, each song stands on its own. Like,Our Lady of Sorrows, that’s playing now, it’s nothing like Drowning Lessons before it, or  Headfirst for Halos, thats after it. And no matter how many times i listen to it, there are still lyrics that jump out at me, for their meaning, their brilliance and simplicity. 

Well I’ll choose the life I’ve taken, never mind the friends I’m making
and the beauty that I’m faking lets me live my life like this’ ,

like ghosts in the snow, 

Let’s say goodbye, the hundredth time,and then tomorrow we’ll do it again,

Oh how wrong we were to think ,that immortality meant never dying,

And as the fragments of my skull begin to fall
Fall on your tongue like pixie dust just think happy thoughts,

And in this moment we can’t close the lids on burning eyes
Our memories blanket us with friends we know like fallout vapors,

And there’s no room in this hell,
There’s no room in the next,

From silent dreams we never wake, and in this promise that we’ll make
Starless eyes for heaven’s sake,

I think I’d love to die alone,

All we are, all we are , is bullets I mean this.

‘Bullets’ is filled with moments, loads and loads of moments.I think I’ve said this before in some earlier post, but songs are like time capsules.They have memories and moments attached to them, And these songs were written 10 years ago. By people wanting to give their dream another try, to not give up, just ’cause life didn’t work out for them. I listen to these songs, as Honey this mirror isn’t big enough for the two of us plays now, this was sung by a pre-Life On The Murder Scene Gerard, and there was Ray who’d been playing drums in a band, and Mikey who left college to join this band, and Frank who’s My Chemical Romance’s first fan. I’m awestruck.

I don’t choose favorites, i love all albums and songs equally. But i’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for ‘Vampires will never hurt you’, it gave a 12 year old girl hope. I’ve grown up listening to it and Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. Then The Black Parade joined in. Danger Days started the party. and there still plenty more to come. I’m not done growing up.

I can go on and on about Bullets but i’m tired. And It’s now time for me to listen to  Revenge , then there’s LOTMS, TBP, TBPID and then finally DD. (yeah, you won’t get it, its a coded message for the MCRmy. Ha! Unless you’re also a part of the MCRmy, in which case, does this not look  like a coded message? :D)

So, in the end, all i’d want to say is,

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE DAY!!! 

HAPPY 10 YEARS OF BULLETS!! 

(we’re done with the days of red and black)

As always –

Vampires will Never Hurt You 

And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
Someone get me to the doctor, someone get me to a church
Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
And if they come and get me
What if you put the spike in my heart

Just think Happy Thoughts.

6 Jul

Told ya, i’d do a post with that title. Bet you didn’t think i would do it so fast. That’s me. Lame.

So yeah, MM2’s gone back to Canada. She left on tuesday morning around 12 am. loads of us went to drop them. And then  V, K , H and me did the wave. Like the dance wave. in the middle of the airport. That was awesome. But before we did that, mum and MM2 and nani thought we were having a family huddle or something and they came and joined hands with us, and there were 8 of standing in a circle, in front of the terminal holding hands like of those giant peace chains that hold hands and stand in front of the trees, rocks protecting then from being uprooted to create space for a sweatshirt factory or something. We define Lame. Seriously.

You didn’t think i’d forget the song right? Pfft. I never forget the song. Here it is.

 And now the red ones make me fly
And the blue ones help me fall
And I think I’ll blow my brains against the ceiling
And as the fragments of my skull begin to fall
Fall on your tongue like pixie dust
Just think happy thoughts


SUGGIT!

15 Jun

i have always wanted to say ^. and now i have. Mission Accomplished.

I know the blog might seem a little chaotic right now, with the tile-d background, which is a Snow Patrol album cover, as can be seen, and the Header, which may seem weird, but i as actually a  cropped part of this picture. Which my

Imager

brother took. It’s a tree in our lawn, at around 10pm. I really like it. You can even see part of my AC!.

SO now matter how confusing, stuffed, chaotic this might be looking, i don’t really care. I’m a chaotic mood at the moment, and this is my blog. Suggit.

Here you go –

Well tonight, well tonight
Will it ever come?
Spend the rest of your days rocking out
Just for the dead
Well tonight
Will it ever come?
I can see you awake anytime, in my head

 

It’s Desert Song, by My Chemical Romance. Ofcourse. Enjoy.

Opinionated much?

11 May

i know ^ a very unusual post title coming from me. generally my titles are a lot more random. Who knows i might talk about nothing related to this at all. ^.^

Random. i’ve been called that loads of times in life. and you know what? i don’t mind. i like being random. makes life more interesting. and i’m pretty sure i’ve talked about this before so i’ll skip that.

went out for lunch with some of my classmates today. only girls though cause some of them refused to come if there were guys. Go figure. and then those girls didn’t even show up, so we were just 5 girls, out for lunch. It was fun, though the whole deciding where to eat part was tricky. everyone has different tastes. at times like these i miss eating out with my family, we have similar tastes and love the same things so there is never any problem when it comes to eating out. 🙂

*phew* finally project submission is done! 4 days of continuous roaming around and begging people to make a circuit for us. and finally we did it. the viva went quite actually. Not that any one cares i’m sure.

Hmm, what else? i don’t think there’s been anything much going on right now. something might be coming up but i don’t wanna jinx it.

Oh yeah, the title comes from something i observed today. people can be so opinionated at times. *sigh* somehow it all comes to pereption. how we perceive the other person could be totally different from how that person really is.

You get this today – Song of the moment – cause my cousin and i were discussing it just a few hours back.

Well I’ll choose this life I’ve taken, never mind the friends I’m making
And I get a little shaken, because I live my life like this
And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in

MCR Trolling Masters.

30 Mar

Like i said earlier, its started again, atleast we think it has, could be a false alarm and Frank just playing with our hopes of a new record, all we can do is wait. These are all the studio related tweets (ugh. lame word) that Mr. Iero has made :

Ultimately it did all lead to good news! and i really won’t go much into it. cause i don’t get into the personal lives of the band, thats not how it should be, But this has led me and countless other Killjoys to prouldy accept the fact that –

MCR are trolling Masters.

there is no doubt it. the subtle-ty of the tweets (ugh.) and the innocent studio pictures, Bravo Mr. Iero, you made us all almost pee our pants with excitement!  but ultimately, this was way better news for you guys, and we’re used to waiting 😉

just follow the tweets (ugh, lame word):

This is when the actual stuff started, 13 days to what, who the hell knows, i still think its some kind of joke, but like i said, who knows!!

[ this one was funny! 🙂 ]

well, here are some more to keep us guessing,

MCR MindF*^kery – Recap of Danger Days

29 Mar

you can just chuck all the stuff below and go here – http://mcrdeviantclub.deviantart.com/journal/News-and-theories-New-transmission-224338248 , seriously, don’t even read whats there below, its utter BS compared to ^! you know i never lie to you guys! 

 

This is kind of like Version 1.0. because its starting again, i though i should recap last time’s MFery mainly cause i might just forget about all the small things many years later.

Basically if you’re new to this, around the time of release Danger Days, MCR started releasing Transmissions (clues) etc. which was amazing!! but first a little about DD –

Its 2019, the world as we know it is no longer there. there a great Fire/Helium wars in 2012 (damn it!), after which Better Living Industries or BL/ind was formed, this is there Mission Statement – ” Welcome to Better Living Industries, where dreams can be fulfilled, if your monetary ranking is deemed acceptable. We at Better Living Industries have been dedicated to a clean and structured lifestyle since the great fires of 2012. Bleaching the Zones and the quantitative analysis of the population have been effective means of ridding you, the consumer, of the unwanted waste. We, the organization, firmly believe in the sanctity of monochromaticism. By organizing the organisms we have revealed life’s true hidden values and discovered ways to attain and monetize that value. So ask yourself this, “Why Try?” Simply kick back and let BLI wash the grime out of your world. You have the means, you live to buy, why not buy to live a color-free existence.  
Through commerce and the correct combination of medication BLI has to offer, you too can be a happy well adjusted part of the populous. Long gone are the inefficient days when the consumer needed love, sex, makeup, or reassurance… these lustful idiosyncrasies left you feeling empty, tired, and weak. But now, you too can be fulfilled! Fill your heart with synthetic happiness, erase pain with ease, digitize your memories, and protect your interests with customizable blasters all at our one stop shop. Don’t let the world get you down. Instead, bring the world down to your level!

Tired from a long day out on the Zones? Need a few laughs? Dinner and a beer with an old friend? Don’t be silly. These antique emotions are worthless and in the long run will never fully complete you! Human contact is pointless and holds no equity. Can you resell a friendship? Can you trade in your mothers love for a transportation upgrade” [ for more go to the BL/ind website : http://www.betterlivingindustries.jp.

And to fight against the BL/ind there are the KillJoys, basically in DD we have

Party Poison 

Fun Ghoul

Jet Star

Kobra Kid

there are also loads of other charcters like Dr. DeathDefying who brings us updates,

and Show Pony,

Tommy Chowmein, The Kid, News A Go Go, Agent Cherri Cola etc. There’s also Korse, the head exterminator and the Draculoids, who are in short, just really evil dudes.  They come and go throughout the videos and transmissions. You can check it out over here – http://dangerdays.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Characters, ( i just can’t get the link thingy to work) its not all of them.

In NaNaNa The kid is kidnapped by Korse and the Dracs, But in sing, the killjoys go to save her, she does end up safe with Dr. D and others in the end, but all of the Killjoys get killed. though there does seem to be some dispute about this, because it seems that in 2019, no one really dies. this is evident from the fact that even though Agent Cherri Cola, who was a Killjoy who was caught when infiltrating Bl/ind headquarters and was then Brainwahsed into a Drac  tweeted (ugh, i don’t like that word) even after he was killed in Sing. so maybe you just disappear for a while and then come back. I dunno, its not really been made clear.

Check out this blog http://girlautomatic.tumblr.com/, its amazing and there is just so much stuff on there, do take a look at Girl Automatics Blog! 🙂

There is so much more to the Dangerverse than this, but i seem to have run out of breath to write it all, plus i need to vote for MCR on Musical March Madness, so do Vote!!!

i know its all random and not really orgainsed, but i just wanted to get all of it down in one place, before we get sucked into the new level of classic MCR MindF*^kery.
