Introducing My First Ever Piece of Non Satirical/Deadly Serious MCR Work.

I wasn’t going to blog any more this year, but then I finished some stuff I’ve been working on since May or June, and thought I’d share it with you lot as a happy new year gift. Or, alternatively, a ‘hope this makes your gloomy January better’ present.

You want to see each piece separately? Of course you do (click to enlarge to full-sized glory).

 

There is a lyric from every original song in there, I think, but one of them is wrong. I did redo it (twice) but then I remembered that age-old saying “Would you destroy something perfect in order to make it beautiful?” and watched television instead.

If any of you could suggest proper titles for each piece, as well as a collective title, I’d appreciate it, because at the moment they are up on my DeviantART profile with really lame names. The only thing I can come up with is ‘Spot the Mistake’, which isn’t the most promotional title out there…

I really won’t blog until 2012 now.

2011 Things I Did in 2011 (or not)

It’s the got to the time of year when I make a list of mostly irrelevant things that went on in the last twelve months…

January

I discover The Left Rights and am forever changed, some countries in the middle east get stuck into revolutions and are forever changed. Isobel, Ellen and I leave a Primark bag full of Killjoy clothes in Costa Coffee, where they are rescued and handed in by my friend Robyn and her nan.

February

My Chemical Romance contaminate Wembley Arena and shoot a video for Planetary (GO!) a few days later. Enough said.

March

March is the international month: I go to Berlin with my school the same day as the Japanese earthquake. #SINGItForJapan is created by Ray Toro and the good people of Twitter, and when Planetary comes on television, my mum tells me I could have gone to the shoot.

April

I made brief notes about this post before I started, and April 2011 will henceforth be known as ‘The Month Where Loads of Stuff Happened’. While on work experience I dye my hair blue, a few weeks later I get my ears pierced. William and Kate get married the same day it emerges that Glenn Beck is a twat (I think some American people already knew this, but the UK doesn’t get FOX TV). I discover I Have Been All Things Unholy and have grappled with the moral dilemma of it ever since.

May

Osama Bin Laden gets killed, yay, and From Shibuya With Love arriving makes my entire week. More yay, especially as it was for charity so is double-sided, guilt-free awesomeness.

June

Ellen and Isobel give me a makeover, something I agreed to at New Year and which they taped for use against me. After several hours with hair straighteners and the girls’ weapons of mass destruction (makeup) I look rather different. I write an essay on the MCRmy with wicked timing.

   

July

The final Harry Potter film gets released, school finally ends and the News of the World ceases publication after 168 years of privacy invasion, shit talking and Rupert Murdoch. Amy Winehouse dies on MCR Day.

August

MCR play Reading and Leeds and explode the universe (okay, the Killjoys’ universe) with the entire show. Brian May joins them wearing Wellington boots. Bob Bryar, I believe, returns to Twitter. It emerges he has spent the last eighteen months growing a beard, collecting dogs and building tables. Some looting occurs in England, started by people who saw the Arab Spring and decided a democratic state needed the same treatment.

September

Pedicone gets chucked from the MCR camp and I write 10 Years, 10 Days. Gerard dyes his hair back to black and I visit Stratford-upon-Avon with school. If anyone gets the chance to see the RSC version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, take it, if only for the pillow fight and floating chairs.

October

Gaddafi gets killed, I attempt a video blog and Frank Iero turns thirty. The weather forgets that it’s October and drenches us with sunshine. I go to MCM for the first time and mistake every Glee school uniform for I’m Not Okay cosplay. Mindless Self Indulgence announce a tour… but not in Europe.

November

Danger Days turns one (where did that go?!), I make a DeviantART account for reasons I’m still fuzzy about and I have mocks at school so blog about books and MCR even more than usual.

December

Every Snowflake’s Different gets aired and firmly cements My Chem as the Most Dangerous Band in the World. Strictly Come Dancing fever gets to me (SPARKLES AND DANCING. SPARKLES AND DANCING) and Kim Jong-il dies – does anyone else get the feeling God came back off holiday this year or something? I leave a sleepover early to do work and finish this post (told you I’d do it!).

Regarding the stuff I omitted to mention: I either don’t have photographs (Zante) or have forgotten about it. In which case, rest assured knowing that 2011 has been pretty good for everything excpet GCSE candidates or crazyshit dictators. Happy New Year!

Good News! This Post Has Absolutely Nothing to Do With MCR!

It seriously doesn’t, I’m not a news feed. I just spew out haphazard opinions over here.

I just thought I should drop everyone a line and say Happy Advent! I don’t have any nice drawings à la Ruby this year, so enjoy last year’s picture:

Jesus really reminds me of someone, but I’m not sure who. It’s the hair. Ruby’s old haircut? My current haircut? Bert McCracken’s haircut?

Coming soon, if I stop eating all the chocolate in the house and get my act together, is the what will soon be traditional end-of-year blog… And, hopefully, some exciting things in the new year. But only if I keep my hands off the Heroes.

My New Life Ambition/What Will Actually Be My Life in 10 Years…

Many thousands of thank-yous to Cassie Whitt for Tweeting about AskPoison, I think it’s my new favourite website.

Continuing the what-I’d-quite-like-to-be-doing-in-a-couple-of-decades theme, I wouldn’t mind doing something along the lines of this:

 

Anyway, that’s enough self-absorbtion for one post. I’ll talk about something Christmassy over the next few weeks. Anyone know any excellent, selfless, tis-the-season-to-help-others stories? Preferably about things other people have done, I know what you lot are like…

 

Guys, the Internet’s Snowing!

So, today’s the second of December, which means two things:

  • Indifferent Ignorance will be snowing until January
  • We can watch this without feeling creepy:

On the downside, I have to go Christmas shopping with a grand total of five pounds to my name. Don’t expect anything fancypants this year, guys… You might get quite a few homemade gifts. Like, er, ‘The Twelve Haikus of Christmas’, or ‘Once Upon a Time In Bethlehem’.

Please don’t make me write either of the above.

Hopefully, maybe, possibly, I might get to write lots of cool stuff soon-ish. I really hope so, at least, I quite miss spamming you all…

**UPDATE**

I just remembered what I wanted to blog about all day! In my Physics mock today, there was a question about circles or something, I don’t know, and it discussed a guy called Frank riding a carosel. All I could think of for a good ten seconds was this:

I’m not spending hours on Google finding the 10000s of memes people came up with… Here’s a good starting point.
