Hayley Audio from PFC & "Big News Monday"
Lots of good tidbits on this PFC audio chat, including info about new music releases (probably in the summer) and something about “Big News on Monday.” P.S.Thanks to @bluecrunchberry — the fan club person who posted this! P.P.S. Here’s a rough transcript I typed up of some highlights. On Paramore shirt day: You guys are creating a holiday without telling us! (laughs) ...
Glasser - The Independent - San Francisco, CA -... →
Yay — Glasser is going to be playing after all! This coming Saturday in San Francisco. You should go see them. Tickets are available at The Independent web site. Sample their music on the Glasser MySpace site. (Above is a picture of Glasser appearing on the Jimmy Fallon show in February, so they are pretty famous.)
It Gets Indie
Can you imagine being in eighth grade… And deciding to put on a concert… at a legendary venue in a major US city… for a great cause (preventing teen suicide) … And inviting bands from around the country… plus a really, really famous Nickelodeon TV star? And making it all actually happen? That would be Noah Hornick who made it happen, and who is pictured below far...
Reblog If You Support Straight But Not Narrow
You might know that Nickelodeon Victorious star Avan Jogia recently started a campaign called “Straight But Not Narrow” to get us straight folks (and especially guys) to think about intolerance. As he told Seventeen Magazine: “It’s about breaking down barriers and changing psychologies and being more open-minded.” I just got to meet Avan at the It Gets Indie concert in San...
Western Swinging and a-Dancin'
OK, maybe you’re unsure exactly what Western Swing is. Well, that’s easy. You know the song Woody’s Roundup on Toy Story II? The theme song for Woody’s old black and white TV show? That’s Western Swing. But the Western Swing at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco on Saturday was even better, because the first band, the West Nile Ramblers, had not only a fiddle, guitar, bass and drums but also a...
What happens if vampires really do hurt me?
Interviewer: This has nothing to do with anything, but what if vampires really do hurt me?
Gerard: No, I promise you, they will never. Umm... yeah. I don’t have an answer for that.
Frank: And you don’t get a refund on the CD.
Ray: Then you get to live for a really long time.
Gerard: Yeah, exactly. It’s kind of cool actually.
Frank: I think he’s waiting for a better answer.
Gerard: OK, let’s introduce ourselves.
(they introduce themselves)
Interviewer: And what if vampires really do hurt me?
Gerard: Oh, come on. With the vampires again... you’re not getting your money back.
Ray: Call our entertainment lawyer.
Interviewer: OK, this is a serious question now. You guys are from New Jersey, so, given that, what if vampires really do hurt me?
Gerard: You know what we’re gonna do? We’re gonna tie you up, take you in our van to downtown Newark...
Matt: You might not meet your first vampire, but you’ll meet something else.
Gerard: That’s what happens if we get that question again.
Ray: Is he gonna ask it one more time?
Frank: What if vampires really do hurt me? I hope they hurt you.
It Gets Indie: Tonight in SF →
If you’re in SF, swing by the Great American Music Hall for what promises to be a great show. Featuring Social Studies (above), Rabbit! and Handshake. The kid who put it together, Noah Hornick, is an 8th grader in Palo Alto. And he put together a concert event with three great bands! (!!) And not only that, he blew past his $5,000 kick-start fundrasing goal. And when Amazon found out he...

A happy thing today, and then two related sad things. [Edit: And then a happy thing at the end.] Happy thing: Our friend Cam Mesirow and her band Glasser were profiled in the San Jose Mercury news today as an up-and-coming band. As I have said before, they are really fantastic. Sad thing #1: TV On The Radio Gerard Smith tragically and shockingly has died of cancer at 36. He was a very talented...

wecanfixyou: Pretty sexy lesbian, huh? Tie, cargos, boots… Okay, lemme explain. Don’t worry, this is like, the only text in this particular cartoon. So read on. Now I know what you’re thinking if you’re reading this. ‘Rachel, that’s super stereotypical.” Well… Exactly. People say that you’re… Comics make stories come alive, even when the stories are ones we’d prefer...
The Bootcuts: Please Don't Blush
The fabulous and very funny Bay Area country band The Bootcuts made a rare Peninsula appearance recently, where I was lucky enough to sample their witty and downright saucy lyrics. I mean, really saucy. They’re the the funniest and most entertaining country this side of David Allen Coe, but with creative lyrics that might be a little too creative and saucy for the Grand Ole Oprey. They may make...
The Joy Formidable: Sweet but Evil
If you ever get a chance to see The Joy Formidable, by all means GO! But, please keep your distance from lead singer and guitarist Ritzy Bryan: She is an evil enchantress. True, when Ms. Bryan greets the audience, it’s all smiles and she speaks with the sweet, wee voice of a quaint storybook character. She is a charming Mary Poppins from North Wales. Or so you will think. But then, the music...
CONGRATULATIONS SANDY!!!! YOU'RE GONNA BE ONE HELL...
therealneo: yelyahsandy: theygavemeheartachetosing: yelyahsandy: me creys. I love you Rach. Anytime B-) :) therealneo: CONGRATULATIONS Auntie Sandy! and why did that 9 months seem like 2? @Neo it might just be the ultrasound report! But I say we celebrate!
Band to Watch: Runner Runner
Runner Runner is a friendly, energetic band form SoCal with wonderfully singable songs, whose clever lyrics often catch you by surprise as you are singing happily along. I was lucky to see them at The Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, which is one of those slightly divey yet wholly magical places where you squeeze in elbow-to-elbow with all of the other fans and can touch the stage and band...
My whole reasoning to asking the audience, “Who wants to fuck me?” is actually...– Gerard Way (via mychemquotes) This is why I always make a point to say “Nope” when he says stuff like “You wanna live forever!” And look. I was right. I guess I kind of just understood what he meant by saying that kind of stuff. (via theygavemeheartachetosing) I love the lyrics to their songs,...

My Life Is Complete (Ms. Williams loves my prose)
Hayley Williams commented on my “improved” Cosmo cover headlines: Yep! Let me reprise that: Hayley: “I LOVE the new headlines hahahahah so so funny.” Sigh. My life is complete. P.S. Original link from the LiveJournal conversation.
MCRmy: SEATTLE FAN TOUR REPORT →
officialmcrmy: By. Hayley S. When the Black Parade swept the globe, I was fortunate enough to attend four My Chemical Romance gigs. I saw them in packed arenas, theaters, amphitheaters, and high-profile festivals. However, I considered it a dream of mine to see them play in a small, more intimate venue… Hoping to see those pictures and videos, too!
(Reblogged from countless other places.)
Style: Cosmotorial or Hayleytorial?
For side-by-side comparison… Which do you prefer: Cosmotorial style (left) or Hayleytorial style (right)?
If Hayley Wrote The Cosmo Headlines...
Let’s get Hayley Williams hired as a headline writer at Cosmopolitan! P.S. Compare to the original….

My Chemical Romance Consolation Songs
I wrote these parody lyrics of some My Chem songs during the recent MTV polling to help the MCR fans feel better when they were losing to Paramore (and to encourage them to vote and make it a better horse race!): Vampire Voting 3 2 1 We came to vote Evermore votes til the pumpkin turns Even David Bowie is lurkin with the guests It’s no violation to be votin for the best Sing it while...
