Hahaha that might be favorite story i have heard tonight!!! Ohh what are you doing tomorrow!? I wanna meet up with a friend of mine from school tomorrow. Please happen to run in to us somewhere?
Actually, yes! I was just about to post that I have an interview tomorrow at 11am in Brooklyn, so hopefully we can meet up afterwards? I’ll message you my cell number so you can let me know where you guys are and when.
Oh i never make eye contact with them in Times Square. or anywhere actually.
They just holler at me like i'll hear them and magically want to stop and listen to what they're peddling off. Mostly if they shove something in my face I'll yell at them in French hahaha my grandma tells me to be careful when i do that but i never say anything insulting to them lol
Hahahahaha nice. One time these street vendors in Paris were harassing us and we tried yelling at them in gibberish, and they just stared back at us for about 3 minutes and then left.
I just wanted to let you know why I am unfollowing you. For a while I've realized that the only true thing we have in common is our love for MCR and the way we feel about the fans. You also post great gender acceptance post, so points for that =D. However, since you won't be posting any MCR related stuff- at least not to a high degree, I figured I would make my dash a lil' smaller (it's sort of driving me crazy right now.) Besides I can still get most of your awesome from Danai and double post really make me flare. I probably sound like a douche so I'm just gonna stop.
Aww, I understand. Thank you for letting me know why though, instead of just leaving me sitting here wondering. I appreciate that :)
I am somewhat officially taking a break from the MCR fandom. Dealing with all this ridiculous drama is starting to put me off from the band itself, and I really don’t want that to happen. Therefore, I will be ignoring anything that is not directly related to the band (music, videos, photos, etc.) until further notice.
In the meantime, I will be putting my fandom energy into my new Matches/Maniac blog because they’re my favorites right now and I have seen absolutely zero drama or cattiness in the Matches and Maniac fans on here so far.
When I was in fourth grade, I was sitting with my cello, waiting for my orchestra concert to begin. The cello was on the floor, but I was seated in my section in a long dress with my knees spread wide, and my elbows on my thighs. My mom - in the audience - gestured to me…
Huh. Definitely something I have noticed in others but never thought about with myself. Probably because I was always bigger than other girls (and boys, until middle school), so it was always a given that I would take up more space. I definitely got the “Sit like a girl!” lecture as a kid, but that I always thought that mostly came from the fact that I was never forced to wear skirts as a kid, I was just used to being able to sit however I wanted because I was wearing jeans.
I think the “sit like a girl” thing definitely comes from when women only wore skirts, because if they were sitting with their legs open people would be able to see up their skirts, which obviously would not have been appropriate. However, obviously that is an outdated concept (I wear shorts under my skirts specifically so I don’t have to worry about being able to sit or move however I want without anyone seeing something they shouldn’t) and this also brings up several other fascinating points. I’ve been told by several people that I “walk like a boy” and I could never understand why, but I do tend to walk pretty quickly and emphatically.
Lol, you’re not remotely the only person who feels like this.
That video was fucking creepy.
That video is why we can’t have nice things.
That video is why Gerard has every right to distrust and feel detached from his fans.
If I was in his place, I’d spend the rest of my life skulking in my house surrounded by an electric fence.
I saw that video pop up on my dash. Not watching it. I’m not even curious, just mortified.
Sometimes it’s just so easy to give into the curiosity or the need to feel closer to the band people we love, but I was not even remotely tempted to watch that video. I know it would feel awful. For fuck’s sake, leave them that shred of personal life they have left.
I watched it last night not knowing what it was except that everyone was arguing about it. Wishing I didn’t, because I still feel icky about it.
"This is why we can’t have nice things" is definitely the theme of the month (or year, even.)
I’ve been browsing around, and have discovered that http://fuckyeahthematches.tumblr.com/ hasn’t been updated in about a year. There’s also http://hellyeahshawnharris.tumblr.com/ but they update very sparingly.
Does anyone know any active Matches tumblrs? If not, what do y’all think about me starting one? (Seeing as I’m pretty much dominating the Matches and Shawn tags already, why not make it official?) I discovered that http://fyeahthematches.tumblr.com/ is still an open url, so I could use that, unless there is some other name I could use that would encompass side projects as well. (Maniac obviously, and I know Jon was in some other band that I know nothing about but would be willing to research)
And my other question is- Are there enough Matches fans out there to help keep the page active?
So, yeah. Reblog, like, comment, or send me a message if you’re interested!
