with all these MCR singles/b-sides we've heard, i'm more and more excited for the album, if only to finally get this mish-mash of styles in some sort of order and cohesive unit - just keeping my fingers crossed that it makes sense, then. i have my favourites, and things that i'm not sold on, but at one thing has stayed the same: gerard's ridiculous enunciation has remained the same. oh man.

(NA NA NA's still my favourite, because it makes me want to dance around like an idiot - but the sheer earnestness of SING is starting to grow on me, it's so typically them.)

at least this album is sort of going to be 'something for everyone' rather than falling into the dreaded 'the whole thing sounds the same' category.

i am less-than-sold on the cheesy talking bits, but that's really all gerard, isn't it? 
this is music i would be caught speeding to, were i driving around, that's for sure. 

eeeeeeee! i wanna know who their drummer is, because there are some great fills in there. ray's in top form, as per usual. 

give me love, give me love, give me love, i don't need it but i'll take what i want from your heart and i'll keep it

i am in full-squee mode, but i promise i will be able to turn off my fangirl brain and turn on my critical thinking brain soon. sometime. really.

i can see why bob bailed when he did, you guys. 

not to say that i don't think this is perfectly them. does it surprise me that gee's doing a comic tie-in with the album? nope. does it surprise me that they're still playing this off as not a concept album, even though, come on. it so clearly is. 

do i sort of love it? sort of. i want to hear the rest, of course, and gee did say that this song (can we shorten it to "na na"? please?) is dumb as fuck, so there is that. i like the energy in it, though. 

also, mikey looks smoking hot blond. what? uh, yeah. 

teaser for the new album behind the curtain... )

wait a second, kids, is that grant morrison? (someone on #mcrchat pointed it out) 
i'm not shocked by this news, but seriously. fandoms colliding.

i have no idea where this came from...
for some reason lately, firefox has been showing me youtube embeds incorrectly, which normally just means that instead of playing the actual video, it embeds something i've recently watched. instead, this time, rather than the [livejournal.com profile] patd  post with time to dance, i clicked the video and got this:

and with a little digging, found these:

apparently from [livejournal.com profile] tothetune  here, even though that was posted after mine? my version of firefox is a precog?

did i say that i love comic-con season yet?

gerard, on being introduced at his panel, with mikey: "Me and Mikey here are actually working on a 'Twilight' and ['My Chemical Romance'] slash fiction." (source)

love. lovelove. i seriously cackled at that.


"They joked that Mikey would himself write a comic book called "Fucking Iron Man."

Mikey Way said he looks up to his older brother. "Everything I do is inspired by him," he said, describing himself as the Tonto to Gerard's Lone Ranger. The "Umbrella Academy" writer laughed about their childhood, saying that he used to dress up as Robin while Mikey was Batman, resulting in a mismatched role reversal for the brothers. Gerard said of Mikey: "He's my best friend and he inspires me every single day." (ready? together: awwwwwwwww)

Way said that he'd most likely score the "Umbrella Academy" movie himself."

"The film, for everyone who’s curious, is going great," he added, saying a script was in the finalization process. "I want all the fans to know that [the movie] is in really good hands.""

(also, endlessly amused by this:
"I am open to other things but I absolutely do not want Gold, Brown, or that frigging Smokey and The Bandit car- that shit is whack." - gerard, march 24, 2009)

eta: and alicia twittered with a gendered pronoun - baby bandit is a girl :-) babybabybaby.

i love good news:

"In the next few weeks, My Chemical Romance will head into the studio to record their fourth full-length album with producer Brendan O’Brien. He has previously worked with AC/DC, Mastodon, Bruce Springsteen, and Pearl Jam, among others. He’s good."

i haven't been reccing a lot, here, but this gem popped up in my inbox notifications today, and seriously, cracked me up.
you'd have to know random bandom stuff to get most of the jokes, but go read girl!spencer is for. the. fucking. win - part of [profile] joker_and_thief's  girl! series, although all you really need to know is that girl!Spencer and Bob are together. 

so funny, made my morning. a nice short pick-me-up.
