i am done with college! well, i don't graduate till saturday, but monday was my last exam and i turned in my essay (that one damn essay that i've been complaining about like, all semester) yesterday, so no more work! it hasn't sunk in yet. i don't think it will sink in till august when i don't have to go back to school, heh. i picked my cousin up from the airport tonight. she's never been here before, so i'm going to show her around and stuff. i think we're going to the beach tomorrow. the rest of my family gets here on friday, and then saturday is graduation, and i think i'm spending a few more days in florida before i drive to nashville (with my sister, so i won't be alone), so i probably won't be around much for the next week. just so you know.

holy crap holy crap. okay, so i get there, and i have to wait in this loooong line to pick up my ticket from will call. i don't think i've ever felt more out of place in my life haha. there were so many ~scene kids, it was insane. combichrist were on by the time i got inside. i really did not like them. techno-ish music + screaming vocals = no thank you. then came the birthday massacre. they're fronted by a girl, which is cool, and i actually liked their music. after their set i went to buy a msi shirt. i went to get a medium t shirt, and the guy asked if it was for me. i told him it was, and he held it up and gave me a skeptical look. it looked kind of small so i got a large, and when i got back to my room later i tried it on. it's too big. fantastic. i'm hoping i can shrink it, because i really want to wear it. it's actually a small! so he gave me the look for a different reason. but it's still too big.

then it was time for msi. the venue is kind of shitty, like it's pretty small and there's a balcony, so unless you're right in front of the stage chances are there's a pillar interrupting your view. anyway. i was on the side, and before they came out i looked over at the backstage area (which is really more like a room to the side of the stage) and i saw lyn-z standing in the doorway. she cut her hair! it's about right to her shoulders and pretty shaggy, so she didn't have it in pigtails. it was still hot though, when she was rocking out and it was hanging in her face (idk, i think that's hot. observe. and here. and here.) she was wearing this outfit (omfg that picture), except i think she was wearing black socks. i could see her thigh tattoo sometimes, which was pretty awesome. i was on steve's side since i had a much better view over there, and depending on where she was standing i could lyn-z pretty well too. and jimmy i could see practically the entire time, and kitty as well.

guys, they are so amazing! so energetic and entertaining. jimmy says the most random shit in between songs, it's hilarious. bullet point time:
-he took off his shirt after a while and he had on this see through thing around his chest and arms, idk it looked like fishnets. he asked people to throw clothes on stage, so people threw random shirts and stuff. someone threw a skirt, which he put on over his pants haha. and someone else threw a bra, which jimmy also put on. it looked kind of hot? especially when he'd pull at it and you could see his chest, and he was all sweaty and stuff, idek.
-before faggot, jimmy picked someone from the crowd to come on stage (he said he picked him because he looked like he'd get beat up ha. he was wearing a tight black shirt with like, those fishnet things on his arms and had bright pink hair. jimmy commented on the tightness of his pants, ha). he got up on steve's side and steve was like, you must be this fat (and pointed to himself) to stand at this mic (he was kind of bigger, like steve is).
-okay, i'm not gonna lie, i spent a lot of time staring at lyn-z. not to be creepy, but lyn-z, please sex me up now. seriously she's like, sex on stage, idek. she did the backbend and i just, holy shit. my giant girl-crush, let me show you it.

okay, so here's the setlist:
shut me up (my favorite!)
lights out
stupid motherfucker
never wanted to dance
evening wear
straight to video
get it up (idk if they sang this or not, but here it is anyway.)
diabolical (i think.)

the only songs in order are the first four. their new cd is kickass, so if you want the rest of it (or any of their other songs), just ask! afterwards i hung out by the stage and was rewarded when i received a guitar pick! i was excited :D all in all, FUCKING AMAZING, and i'm so glad i get to see them again in june!

wow, i should really get to bed, since we're getting up at 10am to go to the beach.

Holy shit, Lyn-Z is ridiculously hot in that first pic you linked.

Man, every time someone recaps an MSI show I get more excited for mine. I was totally unfamiliar with them when I saw them at Projekt Rev, so I'm really happy I get to see them again now.

YAY, glad the show was so good!!!

okay, why would they pick a thursday? it's like they're trying to make it difficult for people to show up. it's a really awesome feeling, to just be DONE and know you don't have to do such things ever again!

I'M SO GLAD YOU SAW THEM! now i can live vicariously through you, haha. lyn with shorter hair sounds ridiculously hot :x YES SEE, JIMMY IS HOT SOMETIMES or does hot things with borrowed bras, details, details! i feel so vindicated!

I AM SO GLAD TOO. haha, feel free! oh god, she is. i mean, i was kind of excited about seeing the pigtails in person (idk how she's still totally badass with pigtails, it's an awesome combination), but the short hair was like, god. so hot. i was surprised to think so! so he put on the bra, and he was kind of pulling at it, and then he went to the edge of the stage and some guy in the audience was pulling at it so you could see more of his chest and stuff, and he was all hot and sweaty, and it was just really hot. i'd never found jimmy attractive before, but (tmi alert) i was totally getting turned on, idek. i reeeally need fic with them. it doesn't have to be sexytimes, just general crazy shenanigans would do!

that is so exciting! i can imagine how it might not have sunk in yet, seeing as how you've been going to school all your life, and now it's over! :D NO MORE SCHOOL!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
what are your plans?

exactly! it's like, no more school, what's up with that? it's kind of awesome, though, whenever i think about some assignment that made me feel anxious/nervous/worried/other bad emotions and then remember i'm done with all that!
i...don't know? i'm going to work where my dad works for the summer at least. i was thinking about being a teaching assistant in spain for the next school year, but i didn't get the application in on time so that's not happening. i'm gonna have to find a real job, and i'm going to live at home for a while to pay off loans and stuff, and then we'll see!

Congratulations! That is AWESOME! (Sorry, I couldn't resist. lol.) I'm so jealous, I don't think I'll ever graduate. :/ Have a great time with your family! :)

Haha, Combichrist! They are quite something, my friend occasionally plays them in the car, it's definitely an experience.

haha, thanks! the flashing awesome is AWESOME. school forever, nooooo. and thanks, i did :D

an experience, yes. i really don't like music where all the vocals are screaming, and it was really loud, and for one song the singer kept saying "FUCK THIS SHIT" a bunch of times, which, yeah, pretty much sums up my reaction to them as a band, and it was just no good.
