chokethewind: (HIMYM // WAIT FOR IT IT'S)
I haven't talked about fandom in forever! I realized that while I was dozing and for some reason it wouldn't leave me alone, the things I've been reading/watching the past few months, so!  Here they are:

- Anime/Japanese thing wise .... pretty much zilch.  I've stayed current and hip with the KH fandom and the new KH games, but as I haven't played Birth By Sleep, I haven't really ventured into looking at fic for it.  You would think for someone who organizes anime conventions that I would be more in tune with anime... but not really.  I mean, I'm pretty good at what's hip with the rest of the world, I just don't watch/read it lately.  I fail.

-TV shows.  Now that's a whole new matter entirely.  I banged through three seasons of Skins (will get to the fourth eventually).  Banged through all six seasons of Weeds.  Am on episode 4 of the Walking Dead.  Misfits is my next adventure.  Watched all of Matt Smith's run as the Doctor (I love Matt Smith, I cannot deny).  It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is on my backburner, as it's been demanded by my friends that I watch it.  Will be marathoning all three seasons of Arrested Development on the 12th.  Am current on Glee and How I Met Your Mother.  I did horrible and only saw two episodes of this last season of White Collar, which I need to fix because Matt Bomer is beautiful.

- I watched the Human Centipede. It was not as terrifying as I was anticipating.  Have seen Harry Potter, Paranormal Activity 2, and Tangled lately in the theatre.  Watched Love Actually repeatedly in the past few weeks.  Have watched How to Train Your Dragon repeatedly as well - that movie is my life.

- Musically, it's been all My Chemical Romance and Courtney Marie Andrews lately.  I went to a Margot and the Nuclear So and So's show last month and couldn't get in since it was sold out, so my sister and I camped in the parking lot and listened to from the car.  Despite it being freezing, it was actually pretty awesome. No obnoxious idiots to compete with.  Dear and the Headlights broke up, which has been bumming me out.  I missed a Pierce the Veil show this last Sunday and I'm kicking myself over it.  They'll be back in Tucson in January, so I'm hoping (foolishly) I might get to that show.  But mostly, just MCR and Courtney Marie.  You should listen, girl sounds like an angel.  Don't let the folk/bluegrass label fool you.  Start with Oak Creek.

- Bookwise, I've been pretty tame.  I'm on and off again reading the Locke and Key series - it's a graphic novel series written by Joe Hill, who is Stephen King's son and wrote the only book that's scared me in recent memory, Heart Shaped Box.  I'm still really obsessed with the Hunger Games series, which I guess you could say is my biggest fandom at the moment.  I was mostly re-reading things I've had, though I made a decent effort at The Bell Jar, before abandoning it for my current love, The Passage, by Justin Cronin.  It was widely reviewed and raved about in Time and I had a half off coupon at Borders the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so I had to grab it.  It's been fun so far, I've still got about 400 pages left.

- I've been writing in This Frenzied State.  It's slow coming, but it feels so good.

Sorry for the double post.  It's 6am and I can't sleep.

So basically My Chemical Romance decided to boycott Arizona because of that goddamn SB1070 bill.  I am very upset and disappointed and so sick of being judged by the goddamn Republicans that run this state.  The closest shows as of yet are in Utah and Colorado, and pretty sure I won't be able to make either of them.  >.>  I have to take so many days off for my conventions this year that I don't know if I can stretch it anymore.  Goddamnit.

In other news, cons are going very well.  Had our first Con-nichiwa meeting, things are rolling, our first PCC meeting is in December. 

And in other other news, that's about it.  Woo!  Con stuff and MCR concerts.  The extent of my life.  /bow

This is a difficult question, but it would either be My Chemical Romance or Lydia.  They would both have to play their entire discography - Desert Song would need to be present, and there would need to be a full band performance of A Story for Supper for the latter, with Mindy, not Maria.  Her and Haley full band would also be fantastic.

I'm way into Dear and the Headlights lately.  I'd always kind of heard them since my friends like them, so I'd hear them on roadtrips, but I stole a bunch of music from one of them this weekend (Courtney Marie Andrews, more of the Honey Trees that I didn't have) and I got both albums and I love it.  I want to do dirty things to this guy's voice.  Unf.

chokethewind: (Echelon-I imagine)
So I get Lydia next month, Barcelona in May, Warped (with Chiodos omg) in June, and Billy Talent in July.  Plus a new 30 Seconds to Mars album, a new Envy on the Coast album, and a new MCR album... these are all wishes but we try to stay positive in these parts...


That's all. :3

Except seriously, you should listen to Barcelona. I recommend "It's About Time" and then moving on to "Stars." They're soothing and ridiculous.  And I've said this a thousand times before, Lydia too.  Start with "Hospital" and then progress to "I Woke Up Near the Sea."  :3  Do it.

Gah, it's concert season again. Yaaaaay.

chokethewind: (Roxas-I'm slipping)
I miss Billy Talent.

Seriously.  I don't even get MCR withdrawals this bad.

Who wants to lend me 500 so I can go to Texas at the end of the month to see the shows there?

 Back from BamLeft.  Will be posting pictures.  Probably sooner than the post about the MCR trip because the MCR trip had a lot of thoughts and feeling and shit...this... is just what happened.

In any case.  I wish I could do this for the rest of my life.  Obtw.

And zombie!KH fic is coming along nicely.  It feels...freaking...awesome to be writing something again.  Something I have a plot for.  I actually have two versions of this that I'll end up doing.  One will be a oneshot and the other not so much.    Heh, writing this down is like putting the horse before the cart but oh well.

Today should be hella busy.  It will all be over my eleven pm though and then I can fall over and die.  

..... I don't know what to do with myself right now.  I'm back in real life and it's just fucking weird.

 Dyed my hair again.  It's once again russet red.  Which is fine, at least it's not the brown again.  Someone in line at the Tucson show had really really bright red hair and told me some brand of hair dye to use but they didnt' ahve it so I went with the first one I used a couple months ago.  Definitely not as red as I'd like but still....redder.  I only got the top parts really well but I like the difference.

Going to California after I get off work tonight.  We were back for two days and now we're going again.  The jetset life is gonna kill you, but I wish I could do this for the rest of my life.

And after that, zombies?  Why yes, fic gods, yes.

But does anyone notice?
But does anyone care?
And if I had the guts to put this to your head...
But would anything matter if you're already dead?
And well should I be shocked now by the last thing you said?
Before I pull this trigger,
Your eyes vacant and stained...

Yea.  Let's make this epic.

 Back from tour.

Exhausted, beat up, sick, can barely talk, and couldn't be happier.  I have a million pics and a couple of videos we recorded at 4 in the morning standing on a sidewalk freezing our asses off in front of the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas but I have to be all the way coherent to provide intelligent enough backstory for that shit.  And have energy to put that shit up on my computer.

I always forget why I love this band.  And then this shit happens and I remember why it's changed my life and all that jazz.  <3

I fell in love again with PTV and Emery.  They always put on a good show, especially Emery, and man.  I always forget that my first love is music because I don't always get a chance to have that every week, or even every month.  But put me in a good concert with everyone else who understands it and it'll be amazing.  

Chiodos is going to be in Flagstaff at the Orpheum the day before they're supposed to be at Bamboozle Left, meaning we're going to be in California while they're in Flag.  I feel like my heart has been ripped out. :/  I didn't really get why my roomate was so upset because she was missing Lydia for MCR-- I mean I like Lydia a lot too.  But I understand now.  My heart fucking hurts.  Chiodos at the Orpheum?  The Orpheum?  Obviously seeing Geesus four days in a row is too much luck for me.  Something has to tip the scale and it has to be Chiodos. *tear*

At least PTV will be back for Warped.  And I am going to see MCR five times in the next month so I shouldn't be complaining too much and I did see Pierce the Veil tonight but man.... Chiodos.  ;;;___;;; 

In any case. <3 PTV.  Much <3

 So I killed a roach in the bathroom, threw it in the toilet to flush it, and it started to crawl up through the wadded toilet paper.  It kind of stuck its little head out and I imagined it was glaring at me, so I taunted it with "Got it memorized?", shook my hips like I'm some type of sexy Shakira or something, and then flushed it.  

And now I'm unrealistically and stupidly afraid its roach breathren are going to storm my apartment because that damn motherfucker did have it memorized and told its little friends on the way down.  I mean, it's not that hard, there's already millions of them inside the walls.  I swear I'm not afraid to kill them anymore.  When I moved in here I would run shrieking.  Now I'm just like... goddamnit motherfucker, you're going to fucking die, say your fucking prayers.  But oh well.  

Pierce the Veil tomorrow tonight!  Woot.  And there is another MCR date in Vegas.  It's the Tempe-Tucson-Vegas-Vegas tour.  TTVV.  Four days, and then we ship it out to California.

And goddamn, I wonder why I never have any money.

I really really dislike the Space Paranoids world. >.<  I don't know why, it annoys me.  I haven't yet started the first game-- I'm way tired and my mind isn't quite up for the task yet.  Tomorrow though, more than likely, since I have absolutely nothing to do.  At all.  Woo.  I'm taking a break from the Space Paranoids currently, but I want to fight Demyx tonight.  I've been waiting forever.  Forever.

I just bought my Tempe Music Festival ticket.  Extremely expensive.  We got VIP tickets.... hopefully nobody else will and w'ell be the only ones.. *hopes*

In one day I get to finally give my mom the Wii!! *excited*  I have to wrap it but I don't know... she's going to be utterly surprised.  Or at least she better be.  I'm more excited probably to give it to her.  I think if she sees it all wrapped up though she's going to guess, so maybe I'll snag a hollow box from work and we can stick something in it that says like "go outside" or something stupid like that.  No, then she'll think it's a car. O.o  Okay well, i'll probably just end up wrapping.  put those years of wrapping my little brother and sister's presents to use oh snapz.

chokethewind: (Together)

March  28-Tempe Arizona, Tempe Music Festival
March 29- Tucson, Arizona, Rialto Theatre
March 30- Las Vegas, Nevada
April 6- Irvine, California, Bamboozle Left

We wanted to come to these places. We selected them. We really love the venues we are playing and wanted to get away from big shows for a while. When we started this thing, we could feel you guys right in front of us. It is time for that to happen again. See you soon.


I could die from happiness (but I would wait until all these dates passed first).  The Rialto.  The fucking Rialto.  Who plays the Rialto?  In Tucson. I saw them for the first time at the Rialto three years ago and they're coming back.  To the Rialto, which holds about 500 people.  I'm hyperventilating.  I'm going to be poor for the rest of my life.  But omfg.

Two weekends.  Of pure My Chemical Romance.  It's like.... it's like Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and any other freaking holiday you can think of rolled into one.  How the fuck am I this lucky?
Barricade or death.
i think i might die after this.  i might try to wait for 358/2 though.  but.
i can't even describe.  it just like hit me.
