It’s hard for me to write this because I never dreamed that I would have to write a blog about how the end of My Chemical Romance was affecting me.
When I first found out, which, thankfully, was from my besties after a long day of work and not sitting alone at work in front of a computer screen, I was speechless. Mouth hanging open. Distraught.
The funny thing is.. they were like “you need to sit down. We have something we have to tell you.”
I was all “did someone die?”
“Worse,” they said.
“What? Like My Chemical Romance broke up? Or Blue October?” I joked.
They just looked at me.
Fade into me, fade into you
The two of us melting together
Until we become something new
And we can escape
And watch the world chasing to find us
Both of us hidden from view
If you fade into me
Fade into me
Oh AND AND the top 12 boys were on AI tonight. I didn’t watch because I’m at work but we’ll prolly watch tomorrow night after Hermie gets home from work. Prolly. The odds of us watching the girls is less than zero tho tbh lol. Then we’ll prolly watch the results from Thursday and if they are as fucking depressing as the top 24 results show was we may just stop watching altogether. Don’t get me started on the rage. Colton. Jacee. John Wayne. Darren Jared Garcia. Just.. don’t do it. But that’s not the awesome part! The awesome part is that Paul McDonald is srsly fab. Like I love his fucking voice. And you can listen to the whole album by his band The Grand Magnolias on their site. I love it sfm. “Sing Out” makes me think of “Sing” by MCR, which, obv cannot be a bad thing.
2010 was such a complex year. There were ups & downs all over the place. Some definite lows/sadtimes, but there were also some very beautifull, magykal moments that I’m so happy to have been a part of. I’m so happy to have spent this year in my little house with my little family. We’ve been through alot but we always have each other, be it good or bad. I’m so grateful to have them & for everything that we’ve done together & them being there for me through so so much.
I made some new friends this year at the Cassidy concert in May & I’ve kept up with them pretty well thanks to Twitter & Facebook. God my FB blew up this year with like every member of my family ever (lots of whom I haven’t seen in ages) friending me there. And I’m dealing with all the people who knew me ages ago in high school. It’s ~interesting. lol I’ve had to watch myself tho, bc I was fighting a bit of an internet addiction later this year. I’m a little behind on things most of the time now, but I’m getting more done irl, so it’s worth it.
The musik this year brought.. where do I start?! I have to start with the fucking fantastik return of MCR!! ‘Danger Days’ is just amazing. I thank god for MCR. Srsly. Ryan Star’s ‘11:59’ is just epic, passionate, like fire. Archie’s new album ‘The Other Side of Down’ was great. He’s really growing as an artist.. Joe McElderry’s album came out & it was great. Totally unexpected the direction he went, but I love it.
This was a great year for concerts too! We missed a few that we were hoping to catch, but that’s just how life is.. we did get to see some amazing performances tho.
- The Goo Goo Dolls with The Rocket Summer
- Cassidy Haley
- Daughtry, Cavo & Lifehouse
- Danny Gokey
- Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta
- My Chemical Romance with Greek Fire
All fantastik shows. It was a fantastik year for musik, really…
There’s so many other things that I came to love this year.. I really couldn’t go thru all of them..
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was finally repealed! That gives me hope that maybe we can make even better choices for gay rights. What a beautifull moment it would be if gay marriage actually got approved & I could look forward to standing up for my 2 favourite people as they finally say ‘I Do’.. they would just have to decide which side I stand on bc there’s only one of me lol! And whether I fall in love with a man or a woman I would be free to marry them without guilt that my best friends don’t have that same right.
and I learned so much about myself this year. I’ve gone thru so many changes & come to understand so much about myself that I never even thought about before… so many changes..
It’s been just.. such a year.. I know it’s been really altering for Hermie & Nevi as well. Mykie still has a long way to go, but I’m hoping he can make some real progress in the next year. I’m just so thankfull for everything I have right now & the people that I love. I just hope this year has been as beautifull & full for everyone else as it has been for me. And I hope & pray that 2011 just sees more wonderfull experiences & growth. I really do have a good life. No New Year’s Resolutions for me this year. Just optimistic hopes & wishes for the future.
it made me really sad when i (late to the new as usual) found out joey had left the bouh to go back to play for alex band. it made me worry that dave was gonna have to look for a new bassist and all that, praying for a fit as good as joey was, you know? but when i was telling nevi she pointed out something that had completely slipped my mind. bob bryar. bob wasn’t an original member of mcr. they brought him in when the other guy (who’s name i’m not even sure about) didn’t work out. and now i can’t even imagine them without bob. he really is the perfect fit for them. so maybe it’s all for the best in the end. i will remain hopeful.
brooke white’s new album ‘high hopes and heartbreak’ is so beautifull. i would love to see her live again. she made me cry when i saw her on the AI tour. i really hope that the album does well. it should, honestly. i absolutely love it. but i’m not really surprised. it’s brooke. and i love brooke. and it’s just the album i expected from her. <3
