I have a ticket to see My Chemical Romance in March. \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

...I love how my all-encompassing bandom tag is still about Ryan Ross's stupid face. ♥

Pretty sure everyone who cares has already seen it, but when there's squee to be had, it's never too late to join in!


(I have no more bandom icons! Woe is me.)

Seeing that they still spell ä and ö as ae and oe in some Olympic events (but not all? lol what), I realized that it would lead native English speakers to pronounce my last name as Lamesay. I'm just saying. If I ever need a stage name for whatever reason, I'm definitely going with that.

I'm kind of glad I've gone back to paying more attention to JE recently, because really, kpop is not a particularly happy place right now. It's not even the Jay thing, because I got into 2PM knowing all about the drama and angst, so I don't think I have any right to complain when the fandom delivers on that. But also SuJu! SJ-M, especially. I hate getting all serious business about fandom because it's always been such a fun part of my life, so basically I just like to ignore all negative things as much as possible. The boys of Kanjani8 are still as random and silly as they've always been, right? Give me my YasuBaru, stat! (I really feel like watching old Countdowns right now, actually. I might do that while waiting for Finland's bronze game.)

Okay, yeah, my current music reminds me that bandom isn't all that shiny and happy these days, either. Oh fandom.
One of my favorite things about the former Panic(!) at the Disco was Brendon and Ryan singing together. Now they're being cruel and have denied me that goodness (okay, I know the old songs haven't disappeared, right), but still, at least they're both still singing. I actually really really love New Perspective, and The Young Veins' (teehee! No, IDK. New band! New name! You have to admit it's exciting) Change is nothing but precious to me. That's the best word I can find for it right now.

Also really randomly excited about Miyavi's baby. IDK! Because he's so excited about it, I think. It's adorable, really. ♥

There is just something amazing in bandom every day, isn't there? It never ends.

It's raining cats and dogs. Happy Midsummer!

I just saved about 500 pics, no lie, and I absolutely have to share a couple of them because I am just. Confused/amused/enthralled/I'm not sure there are words to describe this feeling. So!

I've been having these Brendon thoughts lately. I mean, sure, RyRo is my boy, but the more I listen to that pretty odd album a certain band recently released, I keep having thoughts like "Brendon, baby, call me. Let's talk about all these things that we so obviously have in common." I may be losing it.

In other, very much related news: one of my neighbours looks JUST LIKE Mikeyway. I swear to god. I did the most embarrassing doubletake the first time I saw him. He was carrying a guitar case, hello, what the fuck.

And then, today, I ran into a dude who was the longlost twin of Patrick Stump. And I'm not really complaining, because these things are at the very least totally amusing, but where are my Panic boys? Really.

Anyway. I still love Kanjani8 more than any of these fools, I'm sorry to say. Subaru, baby. ♥ (see icon)

ETA (the next day, when it's actually appropriate): Happy birthday, Leena! I'm sure you're lurking somewhere out there. ;)
Heh. "More." Anyway!

*Current favorites: Northern Downpour and She Had The World, like, times a million. Relatedly...

*There are SO MANY songs on this album that make me cry. The thing about AFYCSO is that it's SO uplifting, even when you pay closer attention to the lyrics and realize they're not necessarily at all about happy things. Still, at best they're kind of bittersweet, maybe, not making me weep like the little emo girl I sometimes am. Um, my point being that these two albums are VERY different, which I think everyone and their dog noticed after two seconds of listening, but they're also both really coherent wholes, amazingly so. I approve. But it also means that it's extremely jarring when my playlist goes from an AFYCSO song to a P.O one, or vice versa.

*I actually think I could sell PatD to a lot of my friends if I just gave them Pretty. Odd to listen to. Whereas AFYCSO totally won me over and I know I'm never going to experience that kind of insane love no matter how awesome their future albums may be (this is not a Panic thing, it happens with every band I fall really hard for. I might continue loving them for years, even decades to come, but there will always be an extra special place in my heart for the thing that first made me love them), I know it would not work in the case of a lot of people I know. Pretty. Odd, on the other hand, absolutely would, I'm convinced. I just haven't tested this theory yet.

*Ryan's voice is magic. I can't even talk about it. Before I'd heard any of Pretty. Odd I was watching live bits on Youtube obsessively because of his singing, which is so awkward but endearing, and OH MY GOD HIS LITTLE VOICE. I don't know. Brendon and Ryan singing together is just one of the happiest things I can think of right now. <3

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] alicated! I hope your day and the coming year will be wonderful. ♥ (And what better opportunity to use my newest icon, featuring TLW's fabulous Alice.)

So, tonight I: watched Hot Fuzz (OMG LOVE! Everyone who pimped it to me was so right) and finally got around to listening to A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. I've been reading bandom fic for a few weeks now, and for some reason I instantly developed a fondness for Panic at the Disco (Ryan Ross, guh) to the point that I don't want to read fic about other bands (though the thing about bandom is that the fics are pretty much *never* about just one band, and I don't mind, but I want PatD, especially Ryan/Brendon, to be the main focus). SO. ANYWAY. Now that I've listened to the songs, other than I Write Sins Not Tragedies which I couldn't have escaped even if I'd wanted to, I am in love with the music as well. (And this reading fic before knowing the source material thing? Very typical for me.) Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off is the SONG OF MY SOUL, oh my god. I mean, this is the song that would have owned me completely if I'd heard it when I was in high school, which is not to say that it doesn't have a profound effect on me right now. And it is seriously disturbing that all these guys are such BABIES. Not that I really care, as everyone I've fangirled recently (see Johnny's Entertainment, kthx) is as well.

Ahem. So. I guess I'm a bandom convert now, or something? Because the thing I obviously need is new fandoms, dear god.

ps. This week's SPN and Lost? So much goodness. And Kame remains the most adorable thing evereverever in 1 Pound no Fukuin.
