So I haven't posted in about two months. So I shall try to catch up in small increments. Fan-girling and related activities
Well first and foremost HIM has been on my radar the most because they have been doing the Project Revolution tour and the new album is coming out and Ville was in rehab so I spent quite a bit of time catching up at [Unknown site tag]
. There were tons of photos and article scans coming in.
When Project Revolution was in San Fransisco, Live 105 did an interview with HIM (well it was just Ville and Mige if I remember right), as well as a couple other bands. The Interviewer was, perhaps, an idiot. He could have been having an off day, but it made the interview entertaining. I don’t know if it is still on Live 105’s website or not.
As I told Hairball, I have been a very good girl. The Venus Doom album is coming out soon (today in the us, everywhere else earlier) and I have managed to avoid all of it. Ok, not all of it I did watch the "Kiss of Dawn" music video and I have been reading the magazine articles but that is it. I want it to be a surprise. I didn’t do any of those stupid games at heartagram. I didn’t listen to any of the music, officially leaked or otherwise. I downloaded nothing. I watched no videos (other than the Kiss of Dawn video of course) fan made, record company made, or of concerts where they were singing the songs. I avoided reading the lyrics when they were posted. I have been very patient. I have behaved myself. But if I have to wait until I am at school to buy the album I may cry…or at least speak harshly to a clerk.
There are three versions of the Venus doom album. I looked them all up to decide which I was going to buy. I decided the regular album would be the one I would spend my money on. The special edition just didn’t look like it was worth it. But we all know that once I know for absolute certain that I will have my job and if there is a way for me to get the special limited edition I will snap it up as though my very life depends upon it. But I am not holding my breath.
I also have a ticket to the concert in Portland. I even sort of have a plan on how I am going to get there and back, but hopefully I can find someone to go to the concert with me and create a better plan.
They played the SNL that Hugh Laurie hosted. Yay! *fangirl-like squeal* Ok, so I am a bit sad and pathetic, deal with it. It was awesome and I loved it, his accent, I got to see him in a dress, the opening monologue, it was worth not changing the channel.
I went to the Slow Children’s concert at the Hideaway. It was good. It was nice to get out. I saw a lot of people from high school that didn’t recognize me and I didn’t feel the need to reintroduce myself. I also saw my friend that I shall call here Spazzy. She is just as crazy as ever. We got to talk for awhile. I met a girl that I know only from myspace. She is from St. Louis but recently moved to the area. It was cool and creepy at the same time. I haven’t even seen her on myspace for a year or so. She recognized me from my old picture and I recognized her screen name. I bought a cd, danced with a total stranger, and spent a few hours at Hippiewoman’s house. All and all I think I had a pretty full evening. I even drank, perhaps, a little too much, eventually.
I have been trying to frame my autographed Bam pic since I got home. Right at the beginning of summer I found a frame that I was going to decorate to make it more…Bamesque, I suppose. But then I lost the bloody frame. I found another frame that actually looks almost exactly like what I wanted to do to the other frame. So I bought I and put Bam inside of it, but of course, what happened? I found the other frame. So now I have gone out and got most of the stuff I need to decorate it how I want and I will figure out what to do about the I have two frames for one pic thing later.
I have also been reading far too much slash and smut in general. And you thought there wasn't such a thing.
