i need less drowning and more land

so on saturday i got to go to matt nathanson's sound check! it was so fun, he's such an amazing person. i saw him in concert three years ago, and even though i wasn't super familiar with his music, i still had a great time because, well because of the music but also because he's so charming, funny, and personable. i'm going to try to make this as detailed as possible for you, jordan!

under the cut bc it got long and rambly )

uh, wow. to anyone still reading, go see matt nathanson!

that's what i call entertainment

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.

last night i saw mindless self indulgence in concert! )

wow, i should really get to bed, since we're getting up at 10am to go to the beach.
erraticonstilts: (panic! at the disco - pretty odd)
2008-05-01 12:41 am

with bushels of bad habits

okay, the panic concerts! on friday i met up with [livejournal.com profile] musicislife428 (valerie) and [livejournal.com 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.

setlist )

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: )

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.

the subtle grace of gravity

tomorrow i see mcr in concert!! i've been freaking out about it at random times all week, mostly internally. my flight's at 8am, meaning i have to leave at 5am to get to the airport an hour before my flight. i'm going to be so tired but i don't care! plus it means burger king for breakfast (i only let myself get bk for breakfast when i'm flying out in the morning. self-control woo! :P). i won't be back till saturday, so goodbye till then!

idk why it took me so long to start listening to the hush sound. i've had their first album downloaded for months but only got around to listening to it on monday. i really like them! and now i'm excited about seeing them with patd next week.

ahhh, i'm leaving in five hours and i haven't yet finished the essay i said i'd finish before i left. eh, i'm okay with it.

tom conrad's new band is pretty amazing. i keep listening to the songs over and over; i kind of love them already <33

we are leaving in about an hour to drive to chicago. i figured it was pointless to try to go to bed, so i'm just going to sleep in the van. i drank so much caffeine today, i'm all jittery and feel kind of crazy and hyper and like i'm going to crash any minute, heh.

i just finished reading the last part of the holly golightly club. if you're not reading it, WHY THE HELL NOT? it's one of the most amazing fics i've ever read, i love it so much. you don't even have to know anything about my chemical romance to read it, just watch the video linked at the top of the first part. seriously, check it out.

okay, time to go waste time until we leave. merry christmas/happy holidays, everyone! ♥

i can dish it 'cause i know how to take it

my del.icio.us i finally made one. do whatever it is you do with such information!

bob/spencer is odd. i'm picturing it, and it's just, it's odd. that won't stop me from reading it, though. maybe. i don't know, but mcr/patd just doesn't work for me. maybe because i don't generally read band mixings, besides pete/mikey and pete/ryan. but both of those are temporary, so. idk.

i don't really like au fics in which aaaall the characters in the fandom are present. this is especially true of qaf. like, in those high school aus with brian and mikey and justin and lindsay and melanie and ben and ted and emmett and even daphne, and they're all friends. that's not realisitic. there's no way all of them would've been friends with each other in high school, no way. it annoys me in bandom too, when all the members of multiple bands show up. not always, but in general it doesn't work for me, sry2say.

did any of you actually have shop class in high school? i'm mostly convinced it's something that only exists in movies.

does anyone have any misfits songs they feel like sharing? i already have die, die my darling. plz and thx.

videos i cannot stop watching: )

probably i should go now. to watch lotms again! oh yes. as a parting gift, a mini bandom picspam )

a mess of youthful innocence

so, the concerts. i went by myself on tuesday, with three friends on thursday. cute is what we aim for were okay. i liked the first song plain white t's played, but the rest were just okay. and i'm probably the only person in the world who doesn't like "hey there delilah," heh. gym class heroes were a lot of fun. while waiting for them to come out on tuesday, i noticed this girl going up on this guy's shoulders close to me. i look over, and bam! she flashes the stage. yes, i saw boobs in public. anyway. travis was entertaining to watch. he seems to have a thing for single moms, haha. someone in a big blue guy costume came out and was dancing around. i don't know what that was about, but it was pretty funny. in between bands they played videos (panic! at the disco, the academy is..., etc), introduced by cobra starship (and guy ripley! ahaha), which was pretty awesome. also you could text things that would scroll by on the bottom of the screen, so i texted something like "pete makes out with guys haha i love it." i am lame, i know. i don't care :P

finally, fall out boy came out. holy crap you guys, they're amazing. patrick is so small! i mean, i knew he was short, but he looked sooo wee, i love it. it was fun watching him rock out, haha. i felt bad for pete in his rocker cast, hobbling around the stage. joe was crazy as usual, spinning and running all around the stage. and andy drummed shirtless, which was nice ;) they all wore the same clothes both nights. patrick had on this gray sweater vest, ahaha, and this newsboy cap type hat. pete had on this part leather black jacket, but he changed into a black hoodie during the break. joe's fro is pretty huge, it's awesome. on tuesday, dirty came out at different times, and during "dance, dance" he danced like pete does in the video, ha. there was some pete/patrick touching, which is one of my favorite things :D i liked whenever pete talked between songs. and towards the end, he told patrick's favorite joke (patrick kind of rolled his eyes and sighed long-sufferingly when pete said he was going to do it ♥). it was something about how pete's cast is soooo long, and ended in patrick holding his arms out and shrugging and saying, "that's what she said!" ahaha, yes, i love those jokes.

on tuesday i was on the floor, which was really amazing. except during the first few songs, when the guy next to me put this girl on his shoulders so her ass was practically in my face, and it was so crowded i couldn't move. he finally put her down, and i was able to get in front of them so they didn't bother me. on thursday they only let the first however many people get wristbands for the floor, and we didn't know this so we ended up pretty high up in the stands. i was kind of pissed because there was definitely still room down there, but i still enjoyed the concert. at one point pete tried to get a giant circle pit going, so i was glad i wasn't down there for that, heh. pete said this was their last tour for a while, which makes me sad, because i want to see them again like, right now. but they need a break, i know that. i bought the tour shirt! (and monia, i will mail your shirt tomorrow. but i need your address!) all in all, AMAZING.

and now, pictures and the setlist )

and now, that meme that everyone's doing this way )

friday night i went to my high school's homecoming game with my friend. it was so weird being back there, seeing some old teachers. it was kind of cool though, finding my old lockers and stuff. anyway. i hope you're all enjoying yourselves!

omg guys. i am now permanent. i'm going to ignore how much money i just spent (minus the $1 gift certificate, heh), and instead think about how i'm going to fill up all that icon space! also, $150 = 5 years paid account + extra userpics. i've had my lj for almost 3 years and am showing no loss of interest (if anything, there's an increase), so i figure it's a good investment.

i didn't mention this last entry, but i still haven't gotten my passport. i applied in march! they said it'd take 8-10 weeks, then i heard 10-12. it's been almost 14 weeks. i think that's more than a little ridiculous, even if they are backed up. luckily they realize this, and provide you with a way to get back into the us without your passport, so i'm a-okay for mexico.

yo, bitches, i'm offering to lend a hand

in my linguistics class we're diagramming sentences, tree diagrams. i really like it, but of course it's one of those things that's of no use at all, you know, unless you're planning on becoming a linguistics or english teacher. which i'm not. excellent.

want to know something random? in the qaf s1 credits, after we're introduced to dr. dave, all the main actors happen to be paired with their character's (eventual) lover. like, it goes michelle clunie and thea gill (mel and linds), gale harold and randy harrison (bj), scott lowell and peter paige (ted and emmett), and then chris potter and hal sparks (dr. dave and mikey). cool, huh? but then robert gant comes along and messes it all up :P

speaking of qaf, i watched 303 last night. that's such a fantastic episode! seriously. from the beginning with brian looking really hot in that long sleeve shirt at babylon to brian looking really hot in that long sleeve shirt at the end ;), there's just so much to love. at the loft, when lindsay suggests brian plans the center carnival and he asks if she's out of her mind, the way she says, "uh, i'd like to think not" cracks me up, haha. and this brian face, of course :D

then bj at the diner, the way brian says "for the center carnival," and justin's "you fucking hate the center," and everything. i liked the justin/ethan scene too, mainly for justin's "tell him i'd sooner eat shit and die." i bet he means it too, haha. and then the camera focuses on fab's sex face for an uncomfortably long amount of time. that must be a requirement of anyone who's on this show for more than one episode.

and the bj scene at the loft. i like how justin stays far away at first, and then as soon as brian gets him to sit next to him he mentions cock, ha. and then brian laughing while he and mikey get high. i love that. and this shot is gorgeous. and then comes perhaps my favorite brian line ever, "ah milked it mahself" :D i love that lindsay laughs, hee.

and then one of my favorite ever justin moments, at ethan's friend's party. "i've got a pretty big cock as well. and i give one hell of a blowjob. right ethan?" justin ftw. and then of course the carnival. god, brian looked so hot in that shirt. maybe not so much here, ahaha. i like his interaction with brian. and this cap. that little recap was all "and then...i love..." heh.

apparently i'm becoming a meme whore. here is another one:

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post lyrics for the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

i can feel my soul ascending

kind of late, but happy birthday, summerinabaddonlaura! i hope you had a great day :D

i was listening to qaf music last night, and i noticed something strange about the lyrics of "i wanna mmm." here's a sample: "well i was walkin' down the street, chillin', as you do. / when who should come up / behind me but, donald duck. / well hey, it had to be the way. and he had a few words to say to me, / and they were / i, i wanna mmm mmm, i..." kind of really strange.

speaking of strange, look at the bio for actor noah segan from "brick" (which, incidentally, i watched thursday night and is pretty amazing, especially if you're one for modern day film noir). here's part of it: The latter took him, entirely against his will to L.A., where he now resides grumpily but satisfied sexually. and Noah's favorite actor is Warren Oates, who died, as Noah expects to do one day as well. Love and cherish him for this one reason. what the hell? those are odd things to write in someone's bio.

also, wishlist! i don't feel like looking for the rules, so my wishlist )

while working on my spanish take home exam last night/this morning, i was listening to a lot of qaf music and it got me thinking. i've always thought whoever it was did a really fantastic job in choosing the music for each scene. that's one thing i've never complained about. there are some scenes where the song is especially spot on, and i thought i'd list the ones that are the most "wow, this song is perfect for this scene!" to me.

uh...

i did a bit of a friends cut. i feel bad, but it had to be done. feel free to keep me on your flist, or not.

i spent this weekend almost exclusively in my room, mostly reading fic or watching qaf. 203 and 204, and 117. i really need a 'when my boy walks down the street' icon. or one from the other scene where brian and justin are walking outside. i love both of them. if any one knows of any, please do tell. those are two scenes i can't seem to find very many icons from.

i watched vanished tonight. gale's still as pretty as ever. i loved all the shouting. 'say 'i don't know' one more time!' ahaha. yes.

since i watched that dancing video where you can put in whoever's face, this song has been stuck in my head. i had to download it. i keep picturing the dancing in my head. i kind of want to imitate it, maybe.

um...that's about it. i finished my homework for once, so i should probably get to bed. goodnight! :)

blue light falls upon your perfect skin

and i'm back! despite us not doing as well as i'd hoped (but about as well as i'd expected), i still had fun. we stayed at a hotel that had a casino, and it wasn't nearly as fun or fancy as las vegas, it was still pretty cool. and smokey. and gaudy, but i suppose that's to be expected.

i listened to the first franz ferdinand cd a lot this weekend. it's really good! i bought it sort of a while ago but had never listened to the whole thing, for whatever reason. now it's been on repeat, and i love it.

i finally watched some qaf tonight (s1! i love you), and i decided to post some caps i made forever ago. episodes 110 and 118. i'm sorry if the aspect ratio looks off, i don't know how to fix that. but anyway, yay pretty! )

and, that's it. real picspam coming...eventually. it's taking me a really long time, but it's coming.
