Happy Easter

Happy Easter, everyone.

I do realize I have not updated in a while. Nine days, to be exact.

Even now I only come with seasons greetings. There hasn't been much to post about as of late. I suppose I could try and throw something together though.

It's Easter weekend, and I've been visiting family. Food's been good. My cousins are a bunch of lovely goons, as usual. I wore a pair of black and white thigh-high striped socks to my grandma's today. My grandpa called me a zebra, she called me Raggedy Ann, one of my uncles called me Pippi Longstockings, and the other called me the Hamburglar. Wonderful. Never wearing those socks up there again.

I've been reading a play through of the Japanese PSP game Dangan Ronpa. It's fucking great.

Not much else to say. Have a wonderful week <3

My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance broke up today.

I found this out four hours ago and I'm still in the shock/denial stage of grief.

I have spent my entire evening on Tumblr lamenting with fellow members of the MCRmy and it was actually really nice because the MCR fandom is usually quiet but motherfucker we were all over the fuckin' place today.

I'm still sort of refusing to believe this though and every time I come across another bit of evidence that yes, this shit is true, it's like another huge blow to my face.

When I first found out, I had to hold back tears. I immediately went to Tumblr to connect with other fans. I slipped The Black Parade into my CD player and tried my best to sing along, but I was choking up too much, especially with Welcome to the Black Parade, the first MCR song I ever heard.

My Chemical Romance was the first band I really, truly fell in love with. They introduced me to alternative music as a whole. They taught me that it's okay to not be okay, that being a freak is not a curse but a blessing, to stay true to myself, and to keep pushing through rough times because there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. They helped me be myself, even if that meant sticking out like a sore thumb. This band has been a miracle in my life, and now that they're done I don't know what to do.

The one thing that pisses me off was how they told us they split. This is the post they left us.

Are you fucking kidding me?! So cold, so blunt so near-emotionless. Just one paragraph. Twelve years of amazing music and moments with fans and touring and time on the road and recording and four albums and their farewell post consisted of a single fucking paragraph. I expected more of them. I'm disappointed.

But I still love them to bits. They make amazing music with a fantastic message and they had such a great connection with their fans. Their motto was "MCR saved my life," because it saved Gerard Way's life twice and it saved countless other fans' lives.

They had a great run. I hope they don't totally disappear.

I wish them luck in the future.

*quiet sobbing*

March Break

Today, school let out for March break, and thank god.

Classes were relatively boring. My only full class was math because my jackass teacher decided to put our test on Friday. That was first period. There were twelve people in English, eight people in gym, and I wasn't able to count how many people were present in art, but surprisingly enough, despite the fact that it was a last period class, I'd say around half of the class was present. Other than my math class, we didn't do anything too exciting. We were in the weight centre for gym, though. Talk about embarrassing. I have no upper body strength.

Anyway, tomorrow I have to go to a friend's birthday party. I honestly have no idea why she invited me, though. I sit with her at lunch, but we never really talk, and whenever she's been in my classes, she ignores me for the other bitches who she's invited to her party. The gossip bitches who have nothing better to do than sit around and talk shit about other people. Friend A and Friend B (who I've mentioned before) will also be there, and it will most likely be the three of us sitting in a corner while everyone else fucks around. I've explained the situation to my parents, and my mom will pick me up early if I really can't bear it.

Those are really the only solid plans I have right now. I want to get as much sleep as possible. I want to play Sims. I want to watch some movies and hang out with Rose at some point (probably next Sunday, she's off at camp all week).

Hopefully I'll get some time to change my blog theme, because, let's be serious, this one's getting old. Plus most of you don't read Homestuck and probably don't really get it anyway. I think I'm just going to make it a bit generic, but sunshiney. I've had mostly dark/black themes for a while now. It's time to open the damn curtains in here.

Also to do with blog maintenance, I've been thinking of sorting out the tags for a while. I made those tags when "WIN" and "FAIL" were 'in' things, but now they just look ridiculous and out of date. There are also a ton of tags with only one or two posts (most of those are modeling comps I never followed up on h a), so I'll probably make a general tag for those and eliminate all of the separate things.

I don't know how to end this post now.

My Chemical Romance - Conventional Weapons Review

Zero out of ten.

All of the songs are gloriously amazing as usual but it automatically gets zero out of ten because they aren't releasing it on CD format.

I mean seriously, what the fuck? Not everyone has an iPod/iTunes, and who the fuck cares about all of the stupid hipsters they're pandering to by releasing Conventional Weapons on vinyl? They are't worthy of My Chem's glory.

Also, they're losing a shit ton of money by not releasing a CD.

I am very bitter about this.
