So this should be interesting. I hope someone with a HD camara records the whole thing!

ETA: Oh no, I only just saw this one. D: D: D: D:

I loved, loved, loved their music.

I glanced at this earlier today, to see if it looked like something to bookmark for later. After all, it's [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang, the author's name was vaguely familiar but not someone who had really made an impression on me, and I already had about four more stories in queue that I was really excited about.

And then I got sucked in and couldn't get away. Today at work was super busy, balancing two projects that were both in crisis, and I still snuck time everywhere I could, to read for just a few. more. minutes. It was that gripping. She was that gripping.

(For the record, I've already reread the Paramore section three times.)

Vote to get Empires on the cover of Rolling Stone! Oh, and onto Jimmy Fallon. And play Bonaroo. And they get signed. Stuff like that.

Hi!

Here, have a random reminder of how awesome Empires is:


Are you excited as I am that they're recording new music as we speak (thank you for the stalking help, Twitter)? You know you are!

Speaking of which, I saw Lights Resolve on tour with Empires, and they were great. Great enough that I actualfax told them that when I ran into them in the Empires audience, and I never speak to the bands when I get the chance - I'm way too shy! Album coming soon, and I'm definitely there. Here's the brand new trailer.

  • My dogs ate my cellphone. D: D: D:
  • I'm unaccountably amused that Fuse is celebrating Earth Day with a Green Day marathon.
  • It kind of bothers me that the minimum length for the Bandom Big Bang is 10,000 words. I know different fandoms have different standards for Big Bangs, but that's hardly a novella, never mind something impressively large. .

ETA: I realized that sounded kind of bad - definitely no insult to the authors or maintainers is intended!  For instance, I read Fngs fr th Mmrs the other day and thought that it was all sorts of awesome. But I noticed it in the BBB community yesterday and was honestly shocked, because I had actually been regretting that it was so short!

ETA2: No, seriously, everyone should go read Fngs fr th Mmrs, even if you're not into Patrick/Andy.

Summary: In which Patrick is a vampire, with a raging caffeine addiction, photophobia, and a poor grasp of the basics of vampirism.

"So, he had a bad time with this guy?" Pete asked, his voice icy. "And you decided to help him out?"

"What?" Joe asked.

The motel room door opened again, and Patrick barged in, sunglasses balanced over the top of his ordinary glasses, and took the coffee out of Pete’s hands.

"Thanks," Patrick said.

Patrick turned to look at Andy, and even through two layers of glasses, Andy would have sworn that Patrick’s eyes were far too bright and sharp, going right through him.

"Andy’s riding in the back with me," Patrick announced, in the kind of voice that no one, except his mother, would argue with.

Patrick pushed his way out of the room, scooping up the last coffee off the counter on the way, and Andy heard him say, "Oh, for fuck’s sake, who ordered all this sunshine? I’m going to get fucking sunburned in New Jersey in March."

"He’s taken all three coffees," Joe said, sounding aggrieved.

"Do you still think I took advantage of him?" Andy asked Pete.

"Only in the way that Gaul took advantage of Attila the Hun," Pete said. "By not have adequate defenses."

Aww, we love you too, Bill!

The show last night was all kinds of awesome. I'm just glad that the band liked it just as much as we did. :)

I'm going to the Empires show in Philly tonight! Am ridiculously excited, as they are easily my favorite band that I've discovered via bandom, and rank high on my "favorite indie bands" list overall.

(A little below them comes The Academy Is..., and I quite like the 504 Plan EPs I downloaded. Apparently Tom Conrad and I share the same taste in music.)

(Yes, seriously, three posts in one day. I know.)

I just noticed that Empires is playing three shows in NYC and Philadelphia next week. I don't usually (or, well, ever) go into the city for small shows at clubs. But as they're by far my favorite group I've been introduced to since joining bandom, and they seem to stick mostly to the Midwest, there's no way I'm not going to one of them.

The only question is which: the NYC and Brooklyn shows are much closer, but I need to head down in the general Philly direction for house hunting sometime soon, it's a weekend instead of weekday night, and there's a good chance that I can talk my brother and RoShawnda into coming with me. I'm leaning towards the latter. (Besides, Philly smells better then NYC.)

Oh, uh, hi SGA-people. *waves* I guess I forgot to mention that I joined bandom recently? As you know, I don't normally do the RPF thing, but I somehow got sucked in back in August - I don't even remember how anymore.
