Titling This Took Three Times Longer than Writing It So Please Just Read and Put Us Both Out of Our Misery

I’ve not got the energy to devote another news post to The Media Versus Sherlock, but you guys really need to read this. 1) Everyone satirises politicians 2) Everyone satirises – or dramatises – the Murdoch empire (see Reichenbach for more tabloid fun!) 3) Journalists need to quit using popular culture as an excuse to spew their political ideas.

The Ten O’Clock News: Enduring Legacies and Other Less Pretentious Ideas

I realised over the course of this evening that today is fifty years since JFK’s assassination, fifty years since the first Doctor Who episode and three years since Danger Days was released. I was first going to do a post about JFK and how he’s become an icon, then about JFK and Doctor Who and […]

10 Years, 10 Days: the World Needed Something Better, We Gave Them Honesty and Carried On… Now We Can’t Stop Because We’re Dancing.

It is the end, my friends. Well, the end of My Chem’s ten-year anniversary celebrations on Indifferent Ignorance, anyway. The year’s not quite over, I may yet pull something MCR-related out of my woolly hat later this year – but today is the final installment of ’10 Years, 10 Days’. Lizbeth told me to ‘make […]

10 Years, 10 Days: Oh Baby Here Comes the Sound/ “Well lucky for you we’re still pretty…”

Oh Baby Here Comes the Sound One of the most frequent comments on YouTube (apart from ‘OH MY GEE HE IS SO FIT <3’) is ‘What happened to MCR?’ ‘Where did old MCR go?’ ‘I miss old MCR. They should go back to their van days, they were so much better!’ Answers: MCR, because they […]

10 Years, 10 Days: Killjoys Are Creative (and sometimes slightly insane)

I mentioned the Killjoys’ creative talent the other day, but it’s time to devote an entire post to it. Sadly, as with band interviews, there are far too many pieces of work on the Interwebz to name. So browse the band or SINGIfForJapan on DeviantART to your heart’s content for artwork. For fanfictions, I recommend […]

10 Years, 10 Days: I Can’t YouTube Everything MCR Says, But You Can!

There are, literally, thousands of My Chem interviews on YouTube. Go and have a search (and beware the Frerard videos)… Here are some of my favourites: The Grammy Museum Gerard and Mikey on Absolute Radio Frank in Australia Any of Taste iT TV interviews Spin Magazine My Chem vs. The Box Dawn of the Dead Mic […]

10 Years, 10 Days: “You gotta promise me, you gotta fuckin’ dance.”

Everyone’s noticed that My Chem quite enjoy playing live shows, and that people quite enjoy going to them. Having seen them twice, on their first show back in London last October and at Wembley Area in February – read the reviews/blogs here and here – I can tell you that there’s a reason for the excitement.
