I'm speechless! :(

I just read the announcement and I don't know what to say. This has been the worst month of my life now but that's beside the fact. I cannot describe how I feel adequately beside the fact that I'm heartbroken as I'm sure the rest of you are. MCR have helped me through so much crap and no matter what they'll always live on in our hearts as the most amazing band ever! I wish this weren't true with every molecule in my body and held off finding out since someone mentioned it to me yesterday because I wanted to live in denial but all my wishing doesn't make it any less of a nightmare. I love you guys with all my heart and thank you for making such awesome, kick ass, inspirational songs! You guys have saved my life and I can never forget that. Every fan on the site, you guys have been awesome and lovely people and have also helped me through some dark days. I could go on forever but I have to go cry some more. So do your best and represent this amazing band tomorrow!

MORRISSEY live in Vermont!!!!!

Hi guys,

I hope you're having fun and enjoying life. Me- to the best of my abilities. I went to Burlington, Vermont to see MORRISSEY live with my family recently. It was awesome! For someone who dwells in the horrible province of Quebec, Canada, hearing so much nice, friendly, chills, english people was culture shock. (P.S. Being english in a god damn seperatist french province is not fun. At all.) You Vermonters are insanely helpful for directions and customer service. I wanted to move there. I was having withdrawls after having a crazy awesome vacation and being with people who understand me but I'm feeling better now... a bit.

Warped Tour 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I went to Warped Tour and it was freaking amazing as hell! Best day since Mcr show last year! It was bloody boiling outside. 36 degrees celcius. The line up lasted 3 hours but it was worth every second. We saw Motionless In White (met them. They were nice and said they liked the art we gave them.) , Memphis Mayfire, Geoff Rickley's acoustic set, Taking Back Sunday, Anti-Flag (who were insanely nice at the meet and greet. They are the coolest people!) , New Found Glory and some others. Blood on the Dance Floor were really bad but we were only in the area 'cause of the Anti-Flag signing. All Time Low were perverts. We went to see them for the hell of it but left after ten minutes. We had a blast and went crazy at all the sets we were stoked for.

Warped Tour 2012!

Hey guys,
So happy 8th anniversary of Three Cheers! It's my favorite MCR album if I had to choose. Love "To The End". Not many people seem to say it's their favorite. You guys should read "A Rose for Emily" since that's what's the song is about. I love that short story.

Anyone going to Warped Tour 2012? I'm going with my sister. It'll be our first time but we're so psyched! I really really really can't wait to see The Used live for the first time too! Senses Fail too. I just got into listening to them recently 'cause of Warped Tour and they kick ass!

Anyone listen to dark cabaret music? There's this great freaking amazing band called BirdEatsBaby that I found on youtube. You guys should check them out. They sound like The Dresden Dolls (who I also love).

Weird latest purchase- World War 2 gas mask. It's real. We found it at a garage sale. It kinda screams Mother War. It's also way too scary to have the box open all the time so I keep it closed.

Hello Killjoys!

Hey mcrmy!

How's it going? I'm okay. I've been spending my time not spent slaving away for minimum wage (not that I'm complaining) painting. I finished up a black and white one of Emilie Autumn and painted an image of the White Violin surrounded by what looks like red tree veins from Apocalypse Suite. They turned out pretty sweet (suite). I'll post them soon.

Anyone obsessed with The Used? I am. "Vunerable" kicks ass! I love "Hands and Faces", "Put Me Out" and "Give Me Love". I'm incredibly psyched to see them live for the first time on their new tour! Still thinking of what kind of artwork I should make in case I am lucky enough to meet them.

From First to Last anyone?

Hey guys?

How are you doing? I'm pretty good. Does anyone like From First to Last? They're amazing! My sister got their self titled cd and "My Teen Angst has a Body Count" for Christmas and I've been listening to them since then. I know they're not really recent cds but do you guys still listen to them? I love "Ride the Wings of Pestilence". It's creepy lyrically but so good. Another band that I've been jamming out to is The Smashing Pumpkins' "Siamese Dream". Doesn't Gerard sound alot like Billy Corgan? Especially on the song "Disarm". It's a very pretty song. Oh, and my final point, I can't wait for the new The Used cd "Vunerable" to come out in March! I really really really hope I get to see them live when they tour. Plus, I want to meet Bert McCracken. He seems like a cool person to talk to.
Bye for now!

Merry Christmas I could care less (just kidding)!

Hey guys,
It's been a while since I last logged on here. I have a shitty job serving deli meat and chicken and sometimes I really want to smack the retarded customers around as well as some of the assholes I work with. Yesterday was very stressful and I was running around like a headless chicken and getting all neurotic and what not because I'm easily stressed out. Today should be better since beening bitched at by a superviser for four hours is not fun at all and it can't get worse.
Anyways, I hope you guys have a merry christmas and hopefully I will too. My sister and I got each other some sweet christmas gifts so that will be cool. I really wanted to make her an Edward Scissorhands doll but I don't have enough time. So maybe it could be a Valentines' day gift instead?

My Jack Skelliton doll

I made this guy a couple months ago but never got the time to post it. What do you guys think? Should I make a Sally one too? Feel free to suggest other dolls to make. I also have a Frank Iero one which I will post soon.

Sweet Reads- with a sidenote on Morrissey and Madame Bovary

Hey guys!
How are you doing? I'm okay. I love reading Victorian novels and old books since I find that they're written better. Anyways, has anyone read "Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert? I read the english translation and it's great! I bought a Fall Out Boy biography book and one on Morrissey called "Saint Morrissey" recently and I can't wait to read the Morrissey one. I loove his music and The Smiths are amazing! It's awesome that MCR like The Smiths too as well as Fall Out Boy. I'm just rambling so feel free to comment or whatever. If you guys know some great Victorian reads, post 'em I'm always looking for a new book to read.
