It's been more than a year since I posted on this site. It's not from a lack of post-worthy information or experiences, but rather a feeling of disconnect from this band and this fan base.

I've always felt like the MCRmy is one huge family, and it is, but lately it's as if I've moved overseas for a new job - struggling to keep up relationships because you're so far away.

I listen to at least one MCR song a day, and most of the time the Greatest Hits CD is playing in my car, but everything sort of washes over me. I'm listening, but I'm not hearing, so to speak.

This band has been part of my

I live in Bathurst - pity me!

Any other time of the year I love this place. It's beautiful, quiet... nice people - not much to do but I don't particular like doing much anyway.

The Bathurst 1000 is on this weekend. The BIGGEST car race in Australia! And the noise is insane!

The university I attend is quite literally next to the Mount Panorama (the track), and today they are doing - well I don't really know what they're doing - test laps or something. AND THEY STARTED AT 8 AM!!!

I'm going back to my parents house (3 hours away) to escape the noise for the weekend!

Help me with my assignment? Please!

I need a good quote to use for my university assignment asap. I'd really appreciate it!

All you need to do is answer this question in your own words. Be as honest as you can =)

'How does it make you feel when the media doesn't provide information on rock/punk/alternative/indie/metal music and those kinds of bands because it's not what's popular?'

Leave me your name (first name will do) and country too so I can attribute the quote to you. The only person who will see it is my lecturer.

Thank you!

I saw Yellowcard last night!

And they were awesome!

It was a really energetic performance and the crowd got really into it. They played a couple of tracks off their new record Southern Air, and played a few classics as well. And of course they saved Ocean Avenue for last! People demanded it at the end of every song, but you knew it was coming. You can't go to a Yellowcard performance and not hear Ocean Avenue. Ryan Key kept telling us how amazing a crowd we were too, and at one point he even stopped playing during an acoustic song just too tell us how good we sounded.

It's funny how things change...

Five years ago, at almost exactly this date, I was asking my mother if I could go see MCR play in November at Acer Arena. I'd only been listening to the band for a month or two at this point, I was only 13, but I knew they were something special. My mother said no, "It's just a phase". I was pissed, told her next time they came to Australia I would be going no matter my age or if anyone came with me (and I did).

...Fast forward five years to today...

On the phone: "Hey, Mum, can I use $60 or $70 from the paypal account?"
"What for?!" Incredulous tone.
"MCR."
"Okay! No problem!

So these new songs...

I'm not sure if I'm ready for them. Knowing where they came from I mean... it makes me nevous for them.

I know Frank's said to listen without judgement, and I will try, but in the back of my mind I'm always going to be thinking "Is this the end?", because they had once said that maybe they'd release these songs into the world when the band was coming to an end. I know it was a 'maybe', but it's still going to play on my mind. I'll be thinking "maybe they're saying goodbye.."

I hope I'm wrong.

Calm down and just WAIT!

Everyone is getting overly excited about 'Conventional Weapons Number 4'. I get it, you're all eager for new MCR material now that the Danger Days era seems to be officially over, judging by the new-look website. BUT:

- The band itself hasn't said anything about it.

- We don't know if it is an album or a single, or if it's even anything at all.

- A release date does not automatically mean a new album.

- And there is no trace of 'Conventional Weapons Number 4' on the website at all anymore.

You're just making the suspense worse for yourselves by spreading these rumours and believing what you

Two Things

One:

I wish the amazingly talented and super awesome Michael James Way all the best for his 32nd Birthday today! My life definitely wouldn't be what it is now without this incredible bassist.

Two:

Suicide Prevention/Awareness Day is today and I'm a huge supporter of that. No one should feel like suicide is the only option they have. It's really upsetting to hear about these young people, some significantly younger than me, taking their own lives, and it's not right.

Write love on your wrist today to be supportive to those people who are tempted by suicide. I've done it - now you!

I love you
