erraticonstilts: (panic! at the disco - pretty odd)
[personal profile] erraticonstilts
okay, the panic concerts! on friday i met up with [ profile] musicislife428 (valerie) and [ profile] yeaabihhmolly (molly) and her friends to get in line for the cd signing. i spent the time in line trying to thinking of what to say to panic, and when it was my turn i still had no idea what to say! valerie was in front of me, and she was asking jon about the images behind them when they play and that was all i could think about. that and inappropriate things i'd never ask them about, heh. so i met jon and spencer and just smiled and said thanks after they signed my cd cover. then i came to ryan, and he looked up at me and i could see his eyes through his sunglasses, and i blurted out something like "you guys were really great last night." he smiled and said thanks, and i felt kind of stupid but whatever. then i got to brendon, and he was like, "hi how are you doing!" it was the most enthusiastic greeting i'd ever received haha. i liked how they all looked me in the eye and smiled. they didn't look bored or like they'd rather be somewhere else, which i appreciated. so that was me meeting panic! ha.

so, the concert part. phantom planet played first. they were okay, nothing too memorable. the singer jumped into the crowd and crowd surfed at the end, which was pretty cool. then came the hush sound! they were awesome; i wish they'd played for longer. greta is so adorable! i had so much fun watching her bounce around at her piano haha.

don't wake me up brendon came on stage to sing part of this (the part that sounds like patrick singing...idk if it's really him but that's what it sounds like to me).
as you cry
wine red

then came motion city soundtrack. i've discovered that i really don't like them. the first night i got there late so i hung out on the side before venturing down to the floor after they finished, but the second night i was there the whole time. it was fine at first, only a few pushy people, but once mcs came out the crazy surging/people falling down part began. molly and her friends had left after phantom planet to meet them, and sometime during mcs's set valerie and i were separated. i somehow wound up multiple times next to a stupid overprotective boyfriend and his girlfriend, and every time the crowd surged i was shoved into his abnormally pointy elbows. and by shoved into i mean he purposely jabbed me. i get that you don't want to be moved but man, you gotta give a little. i hate how they stand there with their arms circled around their girlfriends, trying to create a large bubble of personal space in the middle of the pit. if your gf is so ~delicate that she can't be bumped into even a little bit, then she shouldn't be in the fucking pit! god. uhh, and that's my rant on overprotective boyfriends!

finally panic came out. they're so great; (especially the first night, when i was away from the crazies) i couldn't help smiling the entire time. and i laughed every time i looked at ryan, haha. i liked how it was almost like two different shows; the songs were all the same but most of the banter in between songs was different. i also liked how the fever songs were more acoustic. here's the setlist:

we're so starving
nine in the afternoon
but it's better if you do
she's a handsome woman
the only difference between martyrdom and suicide is press coverage
behind the sea i was so happy they sang this! i got to see ryan singing the whole time :D
lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off ryan declared that this went out to all the single people, and the second night said something about finding someone to take home, if you were into that ha.
i constantly thank god for esteban

time to dance brendon sang this by himself. he had us do the "do do do do do do do do do" keyboard part.

mad as rabbits

some interesting happenings:
-brendon's guitar wasn't working for a little bit, and jon asked, "what can you do with technology?" brendon said nothing, and ryan said something about robots writing their music, idek.
-spencer! ad libbing while they were trying to get brendon's guitar to work. he was also wearing a headband thing. it was long and flowy in the back.
-a couple times ryan played facing spencer, and brendon got up on the platform where spencer and his drums were.
-on thursday jon said we were in miami, ha. he was also playing barefoot and talking about how his feet kind of hurt.
-ryan and brendon special smile times, wherein they played facing each other and smiling :D
-i laughed seeing zach (zack?) set up their alcohol beforehand, haha.
-brendon's ridiculous faces! i swear he's trying to out ridiculous gerard. he also jumped around a lot and shook his head; it made his hair look crazy.
-RYAN ROSS'S LACK OF FACIAL EXPRESSIONS. it is so amusing! but he doesn't look bored; he looks like he's enjoying himself. idk how he does it. sometimes he did smile though, at people in the audience. and at brendon <3
-on the second night during one song, brendon and ryan got next to each other and did this side stepping feet shuffling dance. it looked like that part in the breakfast club, where they're dancing on the railing, only slower. like here, at about 1:03.

so yes, very enjoyable. they sound awesome and are both intentionally and unintentionally hilarious.

do you know what i hate? giant bugs on tv. you know those orkin commercials, where a giant bug shows up at people's houses and tries to get inside? that's like my worst nightmare. it's like this music video i saw a long time ago (i think i told monia about it), where these animated bugs were the band, and at one point one of them (i think it was a flea?) was dreaming or something, and he was human sized and having sex with this chick, idek. it creeped me the fuck out. same thing in king kong, where those giant bugs are attacking/eating them. dnw giant bugs, kthx.

speaking of creepy, let me tell you about this dream i had a couple weeks ago. somehow a treefrog got stuck in the side of my hand, right under my pinkie, so just its head was sticking out. it freaked me out, and i tried not to hit it on anything. i think i thought that'd make it more real. my roommate told me the same thing had happened to her before, and she'd waited a few weeks before doing anything about it. that was not okay with me, and i went right away to find someone to get rid of it. somehow i opened the area it was in further, and the lady i went to took a knife and dug the frog out of there. i woke up feeling creeped out. it still creeps me out to think about it.

okay, i should go finish my research paper. that was due yesterday D: it's gonna be hard, because today was the last day of class and i really do not care anymore.

idk, i just wasn't feeling them :( they weren't bad at all, just not anything that made me really take notice. i did like the banter between songs, though.

i love reading your recaps. and i totally agree with the protective boyfriends comment, i mean, how can they expect to be safe in a sea of bodies?

he was human sized and having sex with this chick

oh, man. just-- ugh. that mental image is making me nauseous! lol

you are so lucky to live where you live, i wish i could attend so many concerts... are you planning on going to more?

From: [identity profile]
thanks! i know, right? if you want to be close to the stage you're going to touch/bump into other people, that's just how it is.

it was so disgusting! this was like, a year ago and i'm still creeped out by it.

that's one reason i love living in the us, we really do get a lot of bands touring here. i'm seeing mindless self indulgence ( (gerard way is actually married to the bassist, who i posted a mini picspam of here ( she's ridiculously pretty, and i'd be lying if i said i wasn't excited about the possibility of meeting her) next tuesday and june 17th, and cobra starship june 11th! i'm super excited about both, especially msi bc i've never seen them in concert before.

i absolutely LOATHE bugs!!! GAH! guess you'll never want to watch that movie BUGS that ashley judd was in...or did you?

your dream sounds so fucking scary! that's like a full on nightmare! ewwwwww! to have a creature under my skin!??!?! was it dead or alive? o.O

school's already over for you? wow. lucky!

Date: 2 May 2008 18:06 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
no i've never seen it! and i never will, ewwww.

it was alive D: that's part of why i was afraid to hit it on anything; if it moved and or something i would've freaked out.

almost! i have an exam tomorrow and monday, and then i'm done!

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! I really wanted to go to the one in Miami Beach just for Phantom Planet but I didn't want to go by myself. :( It sucks that PP weren't memorable. I loved them hardcore about four years ago and they were just fantastic to see live. I'm not sure how they sound now though. :/

I HATE frogs and bugs. I've had recurring nightmares with frogs and it's been traumatizing. I'm shivering just thinking about it.

I hope you finished! lol. Good luck with all your exams. :)

thanks! it's pretty awkward at first going to concerts by yourself, but i've been getting used to it, and now i really enjoy it. oh they sounded fine. i missed them the first night, and the second night i felt more sick, and i was hot and squished and just wanted panic to come out so i could leave soon, so i might've had a different opinion otherwise.

it was the grossest dream i've ever had, ewww.

today! it will be finished today, or else. thanks!

The lead singer was the only one that went to the merch booth thing. He's the only one I even care about, tbh. He is fucking hot. He remembered me from Tuesday. I'm marrying him. The end.
LOLZ at Jon saying you were in Miami, though. xDDDDDD
I was kind of pissed they wanted to go meet them, though.
Sorry about leaving you guys. :\

haha, he was pretty hot from what i could tell. lol good luck with that!
and this was after someone else had already said we were in orlando :D
it's okay, i know you had to go.

From: [identity profile]
yeah. i was surprised at how hot he was.
and we drove 4 hours to west palm&back yesterday&today.
to see the academy is...
I forgot how much I've missed them. And how much I love them.
That was the first time I've ever had barricade, too.
So that was pretty exciting. :D
And I met Bill&Sisky for the 2nd time.

it's easy to forget when you haven't seen them in a while, especially when you go to other amazing concerts.

ahh yeah definitely.
do you like cute?
they're doing a summer tour.
im gunna go see them in st. pete&orlando.

heh, no i don't really like them. i saw them when they opened for fall out boy, and i wasn't impressed.

oh rly? their first album is...cute. heh. from what i've heard off their new album, it's going to be a lot better. they don't even sound like the same band. that seems to be the trend these days, ahahah.
i'm going to see them july 9th. and i'm working on the orlando show july 6th, i just need a ride.
and then warped july 11th. i miss cobra/tai. even though i just saw tai like 2 weeks ago. hahah. and i'm excited to see gym class live for the first time.
and boys like girls/good charlotte july 29th or 30th. aheh. should be interesting. they're playing at the same 2 places i saw panic [ruth eckerd & hob]
and...the hush sound/the cab august 14th. i'm working on going to the orlando show on the 16th, too. i just need a ride. hahah.
anddddd i wanna go see maroon 5/counting crows october 3rd. tickets are gunna be ridiculously high priced, though. like $125/ticket. no joke. i'm pretty pissed off about that.
did you see panic on some dance show on nickelodeon last night. it was pretty lame, tbh. lolol. all the little kids and overasked questions in the 30 second interview they did. but it was recorded on mine/bden's birthday. so i was like awwh! yay! <3
ahahah. this cmnt is so long. but i haven't talked to you in forever, so yeah. sounds like a good excuse to me. xDD

From: [identity profile]
really? i might have to check that out, then. and ha, yeah that does seem to be the trend.
wow, that's a lot of concerts! so far i only have three lined up, not counting lollapalooza, which i'm not sure i can go to. gym class are entertaining live, i'm sure you'll enjoy them. and there's just about three weeks till cobra!
i'm seeing boys like girls/good charlotte too, although i'm mostly going for metro station, haha. i'm seeing them july 8th, at the same place i saw my chem.
i would love to see the hush sound again, but i don't know if i'll be able to. the closet they're coming to me is either chicago/atlanta, neither of which is all that close, heh.
that's a crazy price for that concert. i mean, i love both of those bands, but even half that for just one of them is still insane.
i did not see that! i'll have to look for it, i sometimes enjoy lameness haha.
long comments are okay with me! i've been mia from lj lately, but i'm going to try to be back for real this week.

idk if i told you or not, but i'm not going to be able to go to the cobra show in nashville. D:
my mom said the only way i'd be able to go is to get straight a's so i was like fuck that. xD
but yeah. summertime= lots of fun! i've never been to this many shows in a year and i love it. last year i only went to like 6.
i don't really like metro station. i mean, sure their songs are catchy, but they just aren't my taste. it may have something to do with trace being in the band and being related to hannah montana. idk though. xDD
what have you been up to that has kept you away from lj?

Date: 22 May 2008 06:19 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
aw, that sucks D: but i totally get why. i definitely did not get straight a's in high school, heh.
oh man, i'm totally the same with shows. this has been like, the year of concerts, haha. it's awesome.
ahaha, yeah that's kind of weird. i'm not that crazy about boys like girls but i used to be a huge good charlotte fan, so i'm kind of looking forward to ~reliving my youth, if you will :P
heh, nothing, it's just always hard for me to get back into the swing of things when i've been away for a while (a while being like two weeks, which actually is a long time bc i know i have some massive catching up to do). plus i've been reading this really huge fic, and i want to finish that before i attempt to get caught up on my flist.

From: [identity profile]
yeah my mom was all "its not fair. blahblahblah nagnagnag" but it totally IS fair. i mean, its my birthday money that i'd be spending for the airfare and the cobra show ticket. but i guess it's sort of good because instead of spending it all on ONE show, i can spend it on A LOT of shows in florida. xD i'm pretty pissed that paramore/jack's mannequin/phantom planet isn't coming to florida. paramore are always such pussies about doing full US tours. and i really just want to see phantom planet and jack's mannequin. i don't really like paramore live, but i've never seen jack's before and well.. i love the lead singer of phantom planet. lol. so yeah. ahh. i haven't read a huge fic since sheets or bullet. and sheets hasn't been updated in what feels like years. [if you read off of discoattheslash or slashatthedisco, you know what i'm talking about. and if you don't...then forget it. xD]
ahh. i hate just missing ONE day of LJ and e-mail and myspace. i feel like i've been isolated or sheltered or something. xD

Date: 26 May 2008 06:37 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
you should be able to do whatever you want with your own money, is what i say. but that's cool you get to go to a bunch of shows now. jack's mannequin came to my school this year but i was out of town that weekend, heh. haha, i think i am familiar with your love for the phantom planet lead singer ;) [i know what those communities are, but i don't read from them. normally i rely on rec lists, or fic people on my flist like, or fic authors that i like like, and stuff.]

exactly! i always feel like i've missed so much. it's especially bad when i'm not really doing anything in rl but still can't get online, so i spend too much time thinking about it.

ah. yeah. that's really cool, did your school like win a contest or something? or were they just playing a show there?

i think they were just playing a show there. they played with sugarcult? i think. we also had busta rhymes come freshman year. that was...interesting, haha.

xD Well we already had a conversation with Ryan while he was stoned. And as I recall... Spencer's eyes were a little bloodshot. And he was asking me ridiculously stupid questions. xD
So 2 down 2 to go.

ahaha, that is true. too bad i like, froze up and couldn't really say anything D: no but they should like, invite us onto their bus and we can all ~converse. it'd be awesome.

lol that WOULD be awesome...but also very highly unlikely.
did you hear about pete&ashlee getting married&being pregnant?
and ryan&keltie breaking up?

Date: 1 Jun 2008 06:00 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
oh i know it'd never happen, but it's fun to think about!
yeah i heard, and i saw the wedding pics and stuff. i've never been a fan of ashlee, but i'm happy that pete's happy.
what? did they really break up? where did you hear this!

Date: 1 Jun 2008 17:44 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
i'm in total shock. i thought pete was sterile or something. xDDD
and fbr_t. there's a lot of rumors going around. some say they did, some say they didn't. and keltie posted a blog on her myspace a few days ago and tried to be all ~deep and shit and failed miserably. the blog was interpreted as ryan cheating on her and her breaking up with him.
lol. i'm secretly hoping they did, but then again i hope they didn't. i have a love/hate relationship with ryan&keltie. lol.

Date: 2 Jun 2008 04:57 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
lol, i can't imagine how their kid is gonna turn out.
ahh, okay. there's been rumors before, so i'm holding out for something conclusive.
yeah, i'm not too big on her as a person, like she annoys me, but as long as she makes ryan happy i guess that's all that matters. sometimes i feel bad for her, bc people say a lot of shit, but i think she should just ignore it. posting blogs trying to defend herself is just gonna give the haters more to talk about.

Date: 2 Jun 2008 05:17 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
lol their kid is either going to be ridiculously ugly or flawlessly gorgeous.
people that talk shit are obv jealous. i went through and read all of ryan&bden's old lj entries today. bden talked a lot about audrey and it made me hate her even more than i already do, if that's even possible.
and she wasn't really defending herself as she was bitching out ryan. lol

Date: 2 Jun 2008 05:43 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
exactly! two pretty people do not always make pretty kids.
i haven't read bden's yet! but i've read a bunch of ryan's posts/comments, like in fob comms and to jac vanek. i still can't believe he dated her (and that bden dated audrey). i have a couple people on my flist who actually like them, and the other scene queens, and i really don't get why.
lol, i wish i could read that. she posted a blog before, talking about how the shit talking actually cost her a job? bc when you google her all this "keltie colleen is a whore" and stuff pops up. which sucks if it's true, but saying that isn't going to make the jealous people stop, so. idk.

Date: 2 Jun 2008 20:27 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
yeah, they also don't pick pretty names either. they always pick the ridiculously weird names, and i think thats the one thing britney spears didn't lose her mind over. she picked NORMAL names.
i've never read any of the shit ryan posted in fob comms or to jac vanek, do you have a link to any of them? and yeah. scene queens, ftl. i don't understand why anybody would like them. except lana jade is actually really nice. she has a sense of humor. i hated her until i actually talked to her lol.
and if it did cost her a job, then i guess that just goes along with the publicity of dating ryan ross. why does she NEED a job, anyway though? shouldn't ryan be able to keep them both ~financially stable?

Date: 19 Jun 2008 05:17 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
(ack! sorry this reply is so late D:)

yes, celebrities have the weirdest baby names! ahaha, i like how the crazy ones pick the normal names :P
ftl indeed. they're not famous (or like, internet famous) for doing anything useful, it's stupid.
i don't really see how it could. i mean, she's a dancer, it's not like she has some kind of high profile job where she needs to have a clean image or something. and it seems like whoever she'd work for would know/understand her situation, you know? so yeah.
i got the links for ryan's posts from [ profile] notfarfromhome, but she posted them in a locked post. so i'll link them here, the fob and jac ones. he also posted in other comms, like my chem ones, so if you'd like those too just let me know.
