So yeah, MCR has a new song and it's sexy as all shit they do is, but SERIOUSLY, GERARD. *guh* But really, I LOVE this song. It's so dirty-rock!
Here, someone ripped the important part for everyone to enjoy! XD



Okay, so... Life. Life's good, just been MAD busy, and I've got an MCR AU fic to finish in, like, a week (ohshit), but I THINK I can do it. Anyone wanna beta? Also, I've got my [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang due pretty damn soon, so I'm working on that (ohSHIT). So, what's happening in fandom recently? What've I missed, besides all you fabulous people?

Also, I've been watching a lot of the Killjoy concert videos, and is anyone else noticing this? Gerard is really animated during the Danger Days songs, strutting, dancing, and going, as he'd probably say, all-fucking-out on them, but on their old songs, even the super bombastic ones like INOK, he's pretty subdued, mainly just walking around with a few hand motions. The most I've seen was a bit of spazzing out in a couple songs. Now, I might be reading too much into this, but does anyone else think he might be getting sick of them? Of all the trappings that came with their old, darker image? Just wondering... This though kinda depresses me. :/

Haters gotta hate? Says who? )

Violence and feminism... )

Matchmaker, matchmaker, let ME make my match. )
Also, because I never spoke about it: Na Na Na video. Stayed up for it, watched it, liked it, didn't love it, kinda annoyed by it. TOHFMIY — LOVE IT. Holy CRAP that song is AMAZING. Also, I am damn near certain I am buying the box set. Sick-ass crazy, right?!

YOU GUISE. I DON'T EVEN. OH. EM. GEE.

I MEAN, THIS BOX SET. OMG. OMG. OMG. *FLAILS* LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT.

DANGER DAYS: “CALIFORNIA 2019 EDITION" BOX SET INCLUDES:
- Full "Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys" Album on CD
- Inside each BLI box you will receive 1 of 4 different 12" collectable RAY GUNS made out of poly resin with 4 separate color schemes representing each band member's gun with a clear acrylic stand and placard for display

I JUST. IT IS THEIR HOME PAGE. AND IT IS SEXY. 

...AND IT IS SEVENTY DOLLARS. *SHAKES FIST*

IN THE MEAN TIME, HAVE A PRETTY PICTURE.

So I have three fics lined up. And when I say "lined up", I mean I'm working on them. Legit. They are all partially started. So, throw the first words, phrases, ideas, WHATEVER, out at me for each of these ideas, 'kay? :)
  1.  Frerard. Pete/Mikey. Killhoyverse in which the government is now run by BLND, like Quillan in The Pendragon Series, and they're some of the few musicians/artists who've managed to escape elimination.
  2. Ryden. Joncer. Hints of GSF. Summary: This is a story about four boys. Well, this is a story about many boys, some of whom are probably too old for that title, but this story is, more specifically, about four boys who fell in love.
  3. Old (new?) Panic! GSF. The Present And The Distance, but now. The plane crash happened now. Everything happened now. After the split.
Gimme ideas, people! Words, sentences, crack quotes, ANYTHING! XD

*ahem* Okay, now that I have announced that this is most definitely not what I should be doing, I shall continue.

1) I want a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. Of course, the guy at my school I like is 100%, limp-wristing Lord GaGa gay. And the girl is 100% straight. And the other one... You know the details. :/ Actually, what I really just want is to be in love. Like, good-fanfiction love (yes, this is apparently how I measure love now. :D)

2) I need to see Velvet Goldmine, Hard Candy, A Clockwork Orange, and Sunshine (Cillian Murhy Capa = SEX). Soon. Preferably with a friend. I wish I knew y'all in real life. You seem chill.

3) I want to see more non-linear romance movies. Like Eternal Sunshine, or my favorite JGL-hipster movie, (500) Days of Summer. Or even just really non-mainstream romances, like Moulin Rouge! or Once. Recs?

4) I'm reading this awesome, non-linear, really out-there book called House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewiski. READ. IT.

5) Na Na Na is out on iTunes tomorrow! EEEEEEE! *wants flaily redhead-Gerard fic plz*

6) For some reason, I miss Panic!, and its fantabulous fandom. Hopefully it'll come back soon. Anyone have any really good Ryden or GSF fics?

7) ETA: I got rid of the banner. Too much work to pick one out each time. *lol at my laziness*

8) I want a corset. A real one. They're sexy.

9) I've been feeling randomly down recently. IDK why, but I've just been kinda apathetic and mopey about everything. And I'm re-reading the PCCF, and, as usual, sobbing. :/

10) I'm probably going to make a super-exclusive friends group for those of you whom I interact with a lot and am pretty tight with, so that I can post ONE picture of myself (in massive sunglasses, of course). Comment with why you should be in it!

11) What are some good stock icon makers? I'm OBSESSED. XD

I really tried not to double up on songs, but this one is the only song that makes me feel guilty. As I said before, this song makes me feel better about loving MCR, and Gerard, because it reminds me that they are still great people, great inspirations, and that they do mean something to people, including me. But it also dredges up those feelings of being in the wrong just for liking them so much, and I always feel this bittersweet happy-guilt combo whenever I listen to this song. It's so, so beautiful.

I'm working on a Killjoyverse fic, with this basic plot summary:

In 2015, the government, now corrupt, realized the power the airwaves had to influence people. They then set out on a mission to clear them, taking control of all radio stations and eliminating all other contenders. In other words, killing all musicians. Some went into hiding, others fled. My Chemical Romance was one of the few that did neither, fighting back with secret concerts, pirated radio shows, and gunfights with the government's agents. In the four years that followed, they gained and lost allies, took on aliases, changed their looks, and formed a small, ragtag team opposing new, systematic life. They watched as people lost their right to listen, government stations now being broadcast straight to their brains, and saw the way life transformed into large "cities" or broadcasting and frequency propaganda, with everything outside the limits a radioactive wasteland. And then they found an ally: Dr. Death Defying, the DJ of a secret radio station pumping out new, fresh music for the masses, those who refused to give in, to listen to. He "sponsored" them, playing them daily. Their new goal? To not go down without a fight.

Would anyone be interested in reading this? I have no idea if it's any good or not. It'll have Frank/Gerard and Pete/Mikey, character death, general music references and characters from all genres, and I've been using GirlAutomatic for all the details to make it as "canon" as I can. So should I write it? It'll probably be EPICALLY long, so I don't write to want something people aren't interested in. Thanks for any feedback!

Okay, so this is kind of hard to tell and explain, but I'll do my best. You Guardian Angel, by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Here's why: When I first learned about MCR, I got heavy into them. I was, for a period of about six months, one of those blind fans who hang off of every word and action without questioning it. I let them influence a lot of who I am today, my opinions, my styles, my inspirations. And then I happened onto a certain gossip site which pointed out to me all of their, and especially my idol, Gerard's, faults and wrongdoings. I was crushed. Not that they'd done that stuff, although that hurt, but that I'd let myself love such people so much. I stayed on that site for about a month and a half to two months, then left. It wasn't healthy; it was only making me hate myself. And then I saw this video. It reminded me why I loved them, and him, so much, and how they really did, if not save me, but change me. And it made me feel okay about it. It reminded me that just because they're not perfect, they're flawed and human, doesn't mean I can't love them still. So whenever I see this video, or even hear this song, it puts me back into that mindset again. Even though it makes me cry, it makes me feel so much better.

ADVANCE WARNING FOR CAPSLOCK SQUEE OF AWESOMETACULARNESS, 'KAY? :D

OK OMG I KNOW I'M PROBABLY SPAMMING YOUR F-LIST BUT IT'S WORTH WATCHING OVER AND OVER AGAIN. OH MY GOD GERARD BROUGHT THE RED HAIR BACK AND HAD A MASK, YES A MASQUERADE MASK, AND FRANK AND MIKEY LOOK LIKE TOTAL BAMFS AND ROLLERSKATES AND RADIO DJS AND MINI!RAY TOROS HANGING OUT OF CAR WINDOWS AND FRERARD GAZES, YES FLIPPING GAZES, FULL OF BADASSNESS AND FLIPPING LUSTING, AND KICK-ASS FLAG-BEARING THIGH-HOLSTERING RAY-GUN-BRANDISHING LEATHER-WEARING POWER RANGER REBEL FORCES OF MUSIC? HOLY CRAP I CANNOT WAIT. AT ALL. THEY ARE SUCH GEEKS AND NERDS WHO LIKE TO DRESS UP AS COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS AND I LOVE THEM SO MUCH (MCR MOODTHEME? YOU'VE BEEN BROUGHT BACK. :D) THIS IS GOING TO BE WHEN I POP MY CONCERT CHERRY, I CAN FREAKING FEEL IT! 22 NOVEMBER, LET'S BEGIN THE COUNTDOWN!




And now for a bit of coherency: the song itself. I think it sounds cool, and I can definitely see the pop influences, but, as I totally called, it just sounds more like INOK than TBP, except for Dead!, which is cool. I don't love it, but I really like it. AND IT'S MCR WITH ACTUAL NEWS SO IT'S ALL OKAY AMIRITE?! XD

ETA: THERE ARE ICONS, PEOPLE. ICONS. FLOATING ACROSS THE INTERWEBZ. GO GRAB SOME. NAO. XD

Just random information about my life thus far:

A) Classes have just picked back up, so I am rather busy at the moment, and am stealing minutes here and there, as well as necessitating more sleep. That would be why my music meme for yesterday and today are both late, so I'm going to have to double up.

B) OMG THE VMAs were AMAZING. GAGA WON SO MANY AWARDS IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY.

C) I am getting rather sick of MCR's cryptic-ness. At least give us one hard and fast clue, seriously. Now it's just annoying, and seems kinda juvenile for a fourth album.

D) I just finished watching Breakfast on Pluto, and it was amazing. I am... speechless. Oh, Kitten. So, after having seen that, Watching The Detectives, On The Edge, Sunburn, Disco Pigs, Intermission, and Inception, which movie of Cillian's would you reccommend to me to watch next?

E) I AM GOING TO STALK JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT AND GET A PHOTO OF HIM BEFORE HE WRAPS UP HIS FILMING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD NOW JUST YOU WAIT! XD

F) Also, I haven't been able to stay as on top of my fandoms as much as usual. Anyone have any fic recs for me? :)

Day 1 – Favorite Album
Day 2 – Favorite Song Without an Album
Day 3 – Favorite Song From Bullets

Day 4 – Favorite Song From Revenge

Definitely To The End. Although I love so many songs on this album, the ghoulish punk-vaudeville feel of this one pushes it over the edge, and I adore it. Also, it has such a fabulous chorus.

Day 1 – Favorite Album
Day 2 – Favorite Song Without an Album

Day 3 – Favorite Song From Bullets

Headfirst for Halos. It's such a powerful song, and I love how strong it is, how rough-edged, and I especially love the message MCR sends with it. Because nothing is ever that bad.

Day 01 - Favorite Album

Day 01 - Favorite Song Without an Album

I've always loved Heaven Help Us, for some reason. It's so melodic, and feels so aching, somehow. Here, have a listen:

kasuchans: (Default)
Day 1 – Favorite Album

Easily Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. I mean, I love Bullets, but it feels kinda unpolished, and Black Parade, while having my favorite song, also has my least favorite songs, and it feels a bit too polished. But this one is the perfect mix of gritty punk and "emo"pop. And it has the sickest cover art, courtesy of Gerard. (Click the album to listen!)

Borrrowed from [livejournal.com profile] slashxmistress:

THIS is a really beautiful piece. It captures really well the harsh reality of the music business: it's a business, and the new, "hot" stuff will always sell better. But also, it shows how, no matter how long it's been, music can, and will, always touch people.

(Also, out of curiosity, did it make you think of anyone? I thought of MCR right away.)

I decided to finally post my I-Search essay, a school assignment on a self-chosen "personal" topic. I chose:
How and why people are people judged based on their musical preferences, and how have these stereotyped become so ubiquitous?
I feel really proud of this essay, and I managed to discuss several things I care deeply about, such as the Hannah Bond incident, and I even quoted Gerard Way twice, so please let me know what you think!
