I'll be honest with you guys, ever since Danger Days came out, I've lost a lot of interest in MCR (WHAT CAN I SAY, I'M FICKLE).

It maaay come right back if the rest of Conventional Weapons sounds like these two songs:

Tomorrows Money

Boy Division

They sound really good, right?

I wrote something! And I like it! \o/? This is hopefully the first part in a series :)

Title: Howling At The Moon, Or, How Mike Wasn't A Total Cliché, Thank You Very Much Tyson
Author: Lullula
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Mike/Chris
Warnings: Mention of intense pain off-screen, RPF
Summary: Mike's a werewolf. Mostly that involves snuggle piles in the back lounge and occasionally handing out advice to techs on Warped tour.
Notes: Very kindly beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] xaritomene, cheerleading by [livejournal.com profile] xrysomou

Mike breathed in deep, filling his lungs with woodland air. )

I went on holiday! It was great, my mum and her friend and the dog and I went to a caravan park in Southerness, which is near Dumfries. I read some comics and finished Tongues of Serpents by Naomi Novik.

Uggggh, Laurence, you beautiful creature. I love that he's getting a bit sassier, and he calls Tharkay Tenzing (like it's nothing! just in casual conversation!), and at the end of the book he just gets a rest. Oh man, I'm so glad I didn't give up on this series, but now I can't wait for the sequel! Laurence! With a beard! But basically more about Laurence and maybe Kulingile and Demane who I looooove ahhh, tiny badasses the both of them.

*cough* And I am just going to leave my bandom OT3 here:

Oh shit guys, I didn't know Pedicone had been kicked out of MCR! You can read Frank's blog on it her, but essentially he was stealing from them.

I don't hold a lot of love for them (turned off by disappointing album/live show), but still, this is awful )= They can't catch a break with their drummers, it seems.

Also, I have been hit with a wave of nostalgia for Bob Bryar, which is probably somewhat inappropriate given the situation, but.

Sob, these boys. I hope they can get a new drummer and find someone who really gels well with them.
lullula: (bob!)
When I was saying I had a job? Apparently I was misinformed. They haven't contacted me for over a week, so I'm guessing they don't want me back. Damn.



Look at how unimpressed MCR are with my erstwhile employer.

He hasn't even paid me =/

So.... *sob* he lied to us in London T^T

Paris!

So! I'm back from Paris! It was really great this time, I had a fantastic time! I won't update much now, since I'm tired and I don't have the pictures sorted, but tomorrow, hopefully, I'll get that all together :D

High point? Was absolutely MCR! After the disappointment of them at the arena, I can't even begin to tell you how great they were in a smaller venue! Every single thing except the sound system was so much better. And Frank! Frank was amazing! ♥

(Only) Low Point - seeing a dog get hit by a scooter outside the Musée D'Orsay. Ugh, I think the poor thing managed to get away with just a broken leg, but I have never fucking heard a dog scream before, and I hope I never do again. I have never heard anything so sad.

Anyway! More tomorrow~~ ♥
lullula: (bob!)
I've been meaning to post for about a week or so, haha, but I'm lame XD

  • So I saw this on Tumblr, a noteslate, which pretty much seems like an electronic notepad that does nothing else, except take notes.. I don't even know why I want it so much, and yet I do! I don't even take that many notes, but I feel that if I had a NoteSlate, I might start...



  • I'm uh, still writing my [livejournal.com profile] random_bandom entry (I've got 400 words! There's cuddling!), but I was listening to FOE radio (I admit, I am a complete teenage emo at heart, it is just inescapable fact) and this song popped up, Skin And Bones - Romance On A Rocketship. Makes me think of Chris/Bob, because I'm ridiculous.



  • I finally got around to listening to PStump's solo song (Spotlight), and Pete Wentz's new band Black Cards (Dominos. Both are pretty damn awesome, who knew? What does everyone else think?



  • Did anyone else know that Bob Bryar had decided to become a postman? He could deliver his package to me anytime.



  • Didn't Tinie Tempah look good at the Brits? )



  • Annnnnd finally, lookit Bob, Mikey and Gerard having a teaparty XD




  • ETA Oh, hahaha, I forgot to say! I'm really excited for this week and the next! I'm going to see Rob Zombie and Murderdolls on Friday (I'M SO EXCITED!) and then on Tuesday I'm seeing MCR, and then on Monday (the 28th) I'm flying out to see them in Paris avec Maman! Weeee~!
  • lullula: (MCR: Frank)
  • So the [livejournal.com profile] random_bandom lists are up, and I got:

    Bob Bryar (fuck yeah)
    Mike Kennerty (♥)
    Cash Colligan (I have no idea who this is T_T)
    Gabe Saporta
    Joe Trohman

    and the character I signed up to write with was Chris Gaylor :D

    If I actually manage to write anything, I predict that this will be MEGA fun~



  • This is a really interesting article on FT.com about Mark Landis, who forges artwork, and then donates it to galleries/museums, in memory of his parents. I found it really intriguing.



  • Randomly, I was really stoked to see Coheed and Cambria give a shoutout to The Used in their liner notes for In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 (which is also a really good album, JSYK).



  • And finally, some photos from the wedding!

    Get behind your jackhammer. )



  • I spent most of today feeling really awful because of a migraine. I kind of hope that isn't some sort of evil foreboding for February...


  • ETA I REALLY HATE 30STM, OH. MY. GOD.

    And now I'm going to go away! ♥
  • lullula: (MCR: Frank)
  • So, on the 25th, (that would be Tuesday), my big brother got married! It was a small, informal ceremony, followed by a gorgeous meal. I don't think I've seen my brother that absolutely happy for quite a long time, and I am just so proud of him. I wish them all the happiness in the world, and, OMG, you guys! MY BROTHER GOT MARRIED!




  • I recently remembered Samurai.fm, which is a great site for music. I'm not great at labeling music, but the tags they have up are electronica, house, dubstep, reggae, rock, verbal, funk, techno &c. It's just really chill and makes for really interesting, non-obtrusive background music.

    I really liked this one, which is apparently "dub, reggae, breaks". It's awesome.



  • I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] random_bandom, some others of you may be interested in checking it out! Sign ups are open until Sunday.



  • At some point, I have to choose a new bed (I quite like the look of Ikea's Leirvik frame, what say you?), and decorate my bedroom. I'm thinking pink and gold stripes, because Mum keeps saying I can't go all black. I mean, it's a room for sleeping in, so I think plunging myself into pitch darkness is not necessarily a bad thing, but she seems to disagree.


  • Finally, the dog has decided she would very much like to at the foot of my bed. I am too weak to deny her. Alas.

    ♥ So I've been intending to do a 3 drummer picspam, of Bob Bryar, Chris Gaylor and the Butcher, but I am really lazy. And also, I think about it? And then I think, "Well hey, Travie's kind of scorchingly hot, he should be in there, even if he isn't a drummer." And then I basically descend into thinking about all the people I've found hot this year, and I am definitely too lazy to do a picspam about all of that.


    ♥ In the same vein, I thought about posting a mix of songs I've really enjoyed this year - but I can't remember songs that I liked a few months ago, and it would pretty much be made up of bandom and pop songs - which is not necessarily a bad thing? But I think you guys already have all the bandom you need, and I'm not sure any of you actually listen to pop music, ahaha. Maybe I will anyway? Because I like to pretend I'm interacting with you guys by sharing music.

    ♥ Oh, so, you guys want to know something that's REALLY FUCKING AWESOME?

    You do?

    I'm going to see Iron Maiden! And Rob Zombie! And My Chemical Romance!!!

    I'm going to see MCR TWICE! Once here in Newcastle, which, y'know, yay. The other time?

    ...

    ...

    In Paris!!!

    I'm so excited, you guys have no idea! I don't think I was this excited when I went to see Dir en Grey in Paris, so. Y'know. EEEEE! Perhaps it's the addition of a [livejournal.com profile] xaritomene that makes it so awesome?


    ♥ And I dyed my bangs/fringe greeny-turquoise!

    Have a look under the cut )


    ♥ And back to fannish things, I really need to finish writing my [livejournal.com profile] aar_capslock Secret Santa. I had a lot of fun planning out a couple more bits of it with [livejournal.com profile] xaritomene when we met in Newcastle, so hopefully it won't take me too long (haha, it better not, the deadline's the 22nd!). You guys have already seen the Star!AU, there's also a Punk!AU, and a Liquor Shop!AU, and I'm trying to think of two more. I think perhaps a DJ!AU, and then a College!AU? The person I'm writing for doesn't want too much crack, or you can bet I'd be writing about fairies and dragons and vampires, and probably genies and zombies too. Alas, my life, so hard.

    ♥ Aaaaah, screw it, I'm really in love with Chris right now, so here's a mini-picspam!

    He owns a micro brewery, doncha know? )

    So that was uh, a lot less mini than I thought it would be. :D?
    lullula: (Default)
    I feel really lazy and lethargic, so I thought it might be neat to update with some of the photos stored in the depths of my phone. It's probably boring for anyone but me though XD

    I worked something out last night that changed this little boy's brain. )

    Oh, also, ridiculously excitingly, me and [personal profile] xaritomene are gonna go see My Chemical Romance in February! There's a part of me that's like, wailing to the heavens about having missed out on ever seeing Bob, but the rest of me is like, holy fucking fuck yeah! I'm seriously so excited, it's going to be amazing!
    lullula: (Default)
    Oh my gosh, you guys it's 6.20am. Someone shoot me!

    Anywhooo, the reason I'm up so early is because I have to get train at 7.30 and then a bus at 8.45 to get to London for 15.45! And I am going to then stay there until Wednesday at 23.15! \O/

    If anyone wants to meet up, tweet me or email me or comment here, I'll have my phone so I'll have (somewhat limited) access to the net & email. I'm already super excited about seeing [personal profile] chairman_wow! I'd love to meet others for coffee or museum gazing or window shopping or whatever~~


    As I'm sure most of you know, my part of the country is under snow, and has been since Wednesday! I'd say that in places where it hasn't been cleared, it's about 1 foot deep! Or 30cm for my metric friends. Frustratingly I don't think I own any actually waterproof shoes, but my Docs have been mostly watertight, so they're the ones I'm wearing down to London :) It's bleedin' freezing though! I'm not that fond of the cold, although Star does have a lot of fun running in the drifts (and also, fools passerby into thinking she has tiny legs! Hehehe).

    Ummmm. Oh! Right, one thing I think absolutely everyone should do is go and download is anybody upstairs? by The Animal Upstairs. I've been listening to that album a lot lately, and I think it's excellent! It's done by Andy 'the Butcher' Mrotek, who is the drummer for The Academy Is... (can I just say? He is fucking hot, and ridiculously talented, and an artist! And he looks fiiiiiine in teeny tiny running shorts!)


    Right! So! Wish me luck on my epic snow-filled quest! London here I come~!
    lullula: (MCR: Frank)
    Before I tell you all my thoughts about Danger Days (the new MCR album), I have some amazing news! My big brother is getting married! He's been engaged to his fiancee for a couple of years, but they hadn't set a date.

    Well, now they have: January 25th! I think it's gonna be a pretty laid back ceremony and whatever, because that's how this family rolls. But I am just so sincerely pleased that Lise, his fiancee, is officially becoming a part of our family. I already think she's amazing, and I am super proud that I get to call her my sister-in-law!

    Anyway!

    Thoughts about the album are under the cut! )

    So! In conclusion: Planetary (GO!) and Vampire Money are by far the best tracks on this album. I kind of want to hurt GeeWay for even thinking up S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W, it is just that bad. Most of the rest of the songs have really bad lyrics, the drumwork is so boring (OMG BOB! T^T), and I am just not overwhelmed with joy )= It's a shame, because as a whole, the album is ok - but it is only ok, which is somehow kind of worse? I really wantd to love this album, but alas, I think I have to relegate most of it to background music.

    Still - when they do it right, as with P GO! and V M, they really do it right, I just wish the album had ALL been that good.

    Also, did anyone else think that someone had smashed Franz Ferdinand with The Arctic Monkeys to get the sound for this?

    Oh, I guess now is also the time to say - I am so not excited by the Killjoys' verse. I think it would have been amazing as a film or comic, but as an album, I just don't think it works.
    lullula: (Tentacles)
    I promise I will post about something sensible soon (like skirts, which I still have opinions on). I have thoughts and shit. I'm just really lazy about making a worthwhile post! D8

    So! Not-so-worthwhile things:

  • I have done a mix for [livejournal.com profile] zombiebang, but it was really difficult to do since I haven't read the fic and also, wow, I found the cover hard to do! This was the first one, which I admit still amuses me BUT IT'S REALLY BAD, so I redid it into this one, which is a tad better. IDK, I'm just bad at this shit, I guess. Here's the tracklisting, which I did so like, half is "AIEEE ZOMBIES" and the other half is "I REALLY REALLY HATE YOU LET ME IN YOUR PANTS". I really hope it fits the fic ok, BUT I HAVE DOUBTS.

  • I have such a serious serious craving to write Gabe/Billviam/Travie. I really want a massive Bandom!Food Network AU, where everyone has their own show and shit, and Bill is basically Nigella Lawson, except male and svelte. I won't write it because I basically hate my writing, but I think I would pay to see others do it.

  • In totally other news, my body is basically falling to pieces and I am a fucking biohazardous wreck. Ugh.

  • I deleted my Facebook, because I was sick of looking at it and seeing "Us middle-class whiteys are so oppressed!" posts. Everyone I really care about, I have other means of communication with, so whatever. I miss having another site to check on in boredom, but I have Tumblr, which updates crazy fast, so I'm ok~

  • Both Evans and New Look have been majorly disappointing lately. Half their shit looks so bad, and the one thing I liked in Evans, Mum said clinged too much to my back fat, so I had to put it back before I sobbed like a fucking child in the changing rooms. IDEK what it is about changing rooms, but they put me on edge and wreck my mood.

  • In good news - I bought Gym Class Heroes' As Cruel As School Children, Paloma Faith's Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful, Marilyn Manson's Lest We Forget, Travie McCoy's Lazarus, The Academy Is... Fast Times At Barrington High and Florence And The Machine's Lungs. I like to think this makes my tastes ecclectic and interesting, rather than influenced solely by fanfic, nostalgia and daytime music tv. *so lame*

    And that's it! I swear I will come back and be interesting at some point!

    Oh! New LJ layout - so pretty!
