A monster calls

So recently I was involved in a school Carnegie book award blogging scheme and one of the nominated books was 'A monster calls' by Patric Ness. Not only did it win the Carnegie award but it also won the Kate Greenaway award, something (if im correct) has never happened before.
I REALLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL BOOK.
So here is the blurb:
An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom

HELP MEE!!!!!

So i have this friend who is really into pop, mainstream shit (hipster moment, i do apologise) like Katy Perry, Ke$ha such, but she also is into really awesome things like Alice Cooper too. I'm basically trying to convert her into listening to MUSIC and not just a dance beat with bad lyrics and an autotuned voice to go with it.
She has never heard My Chemical Romance, so I was just wondering what 3-5 music videos and/or live performances I should show her so she can get the basic idea of what My Chemical Romance is about. Thoughts and ideas please. :)

help me!!!!

Im gonna introduce my friend to MCR, and I was thinking what videos to show her. She listens to a lot of pop (the really bad kind, Katy perry etc) :( but she also likes things like alice cooper etc. Anyway I'm trying to convert her. So what do you think 3-5 good songs would be to show her to introduce her to MCR. I know its hard to fit all MCR's amazingness into such a small amount of videos, but thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Blog 2 :D

This is my second time blogging and I thought I would tell a little about my mind.
*note- whether other people have a world in their mind when they close their eyes as vivid in my mind, im not sure. Am I insane? dunno....Its a happy place.
When i cant sleep at night or im going through a hard time I close my eyes and turn on my chemical romance. I see this.
A world in black and white except light. Light is yellow and warm. There are no people, no animals. Only plants. Twisting vines, strangling and choking the trees.

Inside my head

Hello.
My killjoy name is ToxicTempest
i like art, particularily just pencil drawing, letting the world in my head flow freely into my sketch pad. Mainly to do with MCR songs. I have a message, not quite sure what it is yet, but when I know I want to be able to convey it to the world in the form of art. I want to create beauty and poison, love and loathing. I just believe I need to be me. I hope you believe the same in yourselves, that you can do what you dream.
