Dear all musicians everywhere: please, no children in your stageit shows, ever. First of all: so much mots. And second: not everyone likes kids.

Sincerely, the one person with no heart(and no ovaries, I am secretly a dude inside?).

More on Hockey hugs in the actual non-slasher media *_____*
While I do appreciate people who treat their dogs or children well and thoughtfully, I think it is more part of a thing I have for "giving a shit" and "competence". Pictures and videos of people playing with baby creature of any species leave me ice cold. Adopt a three-legged 9 year old dog with half it's teeth and fur missing and make her love life again, you puppy-petting fuckers.

Um. I saw Sherlock Holmes days ago but until now I didn't realize I had something to say (besides "yey! so great!" etc)

But I do. I really liked the gypsy chick. I liked that she had a name and friends and an agenda of her own. I like that at no point did she become anyone's love interest. I liked that at no point did she became interested in any of the dudes. Even though she was totally hot. She did not get naked. And she wasn't comic relief. And when one of her friends got shot she did not do the stupid "girly" thing and stop running away from people still shooting and stop to check on him. She just kept running! That ruled so much! I hope we get lots more characters like her in all future movies forever and ever!

I mean. I don't think any women actually talk to each other in this movie? But none of them really revolved around the dudes either? /o\

Whatever, it was still really awesome. I wish I could afford to go see it again.

Looks like there might be no Blaqk Audio album/tour for a while yet, since Jade is writing AFI songs again... not that a new AFI record/tour cycle could ever be a bad thing..

Being a responsible college student sucks. I can't go to NJ in the spring because classes start May 2nd. I can't go to Dragon*Con in the fall, because classes start August 30th. WTF :(:(:(:(:(

Watching Gerard do an acoustic version of Sing reminded me of anther video.. I haven't watched it in a while, but I had to go find it. Here is Steve Carlson doing The One That Got Away. I love how much of himself he puts into this, just one dude, playing acoustic guitar and singing a new song for the very first time. It's pretty intense and chills-giving, IMO..

..I am kind of sad that if Steve hits The Bitter End in NYC at the end of his European tour, like he's done in 2009 & 2010, I won't be there to see him this year. Why you no like Orlando, all musicians I want to see?? :/

ETA: Oh! If you happen to want and not have the full version of: The One Who Got Away.

So, I went and ruined Neon Trees for myself by reading their wikipedia page, where it says they are all practicing mormons, and then further googling to find that people believe that N.T. songs are "about their faith". Thank Goddess I did not already like them, every time I find out that a band consists of deeply religious Christians, it becomes impossible for me to enjoy their music. Um. No offense meant to all of you who are Christians, obviously your religious beliefs are none of my business, I just don't need to listen to you sing about it, you know?

So I was totally planning to see Prince of Persia this weekend (please tell me it doesn't suck?), but the circumstances conspired against me and I ended up seeing Shrek 3 instead. My life is so hard. Also: Fiona is badass.
OK, I survived being in the pit, and here's my story :P

Bad Rabbits played first. They are ok and kind of fun, but I still dont really like them. But yey for no extra opener local band \o/

TYV came out. Ryan carried equipment this time and helped set up. He was drinking hot tea and possibly mentioned being sick. I still really like all their songs, esp the two Jon sings!

Also: ppl who told me the other day that Ryan Ross has no ass are WRONG ON THE INTERNET. I was right at the stage, in the front row, and I saw it with my own eyes! So there ;)

Also also: OMG Jon was sweating so much it looked like it was raining around him! I was so lucky to be standing in front of Andy! Nick Murray got to play a solo-ish type thing before Change! Ryan was like "hey Nick can you do something" or w/e, and he did... still not all that impressed with him, but he is good and these songs are still new to him, hopefully by June he'll be all "I rock" and twirling drumsticks and showing off and shit... At least Jon didn't say "ok... drummer?" like he did in Tampa when Nick missed his cue to start a song....

...this time around it was Jon telling the "in Africa Ryan fell for a girl 2hrs after we got there and almost got married except she already had a husband in prison" story, smirking at Ryan the whole time... could this story really be true? My vote's still on "totall bullshit", but Jon is a good story teller!

Foxy Shazam is still my favorite! I had a two hr drive NYC-Atlantic City, so I was planning to stay until they played Unstoppable and then go, but I ended up watching their whole set... AGAIN. Alex and Eric are soooo good! But just one froggin' time I want to come to a Foxy Shazam show and when Eric asks "does anyone have any cigarettes I can eat?" I want everyone to say "NO!!!" dammit. I bet he wished that too...

Actually, you wouldn't be able to tell from all my sadfacing but I am pretty excited...

Terminator was cool, but what's his face was sort of wasted on the John Connor role... wish his character got more developed.. or, at least, got to show off more skin/muscles/scars ;)
