A Long Time Ago, In a Glitter Covered Galaxy Far, Far Away....

Darth Adam reared his photoshopped head.

Now children, here's an example of photoshop gone wrong. When the person in the photo no longer resembles the proper gender when your finished, you've done too much. When I first saw this I thought, "Who's she?"

Then I realized that this was indeed Adam Lambert that I was unable to stop looking at. It was so amazingly tacky and terrible that I found myself transfixed by the weird that was before me. He looks like a reject from smurf land with that incredibly stupid looking blue hair, and to satisfy is fans (aka the sparklecows as they are known to some) he doesn't apear to be wearing a shirt. I honestly don't understand their obessesion with him, do they think they can turn him straight? And on the topic of mythical creatures...

So to all you unicorns out there, STEP IT UP! Adam is out glamming you! Show this David Bowie wannabe that you will not be outdone! Send him back to the glam tranny planet from which he came!!

And in other news, somewhere Debbie Gibson is cringing with disgust.

I now leave you with Patrick Kane, the incredibly adorable Right Wing for the Chicago Blackhawks,
For Your Entertainment.

The Post in Which There Isn't a Scene, But There Is an Arms Race

Happy early weekend!! Headed out of town here very shortly, going up to the family cabin. Should be tons o' fun!
So today, I was arguing with Suze on the difference between punk, and a scene kid. I told her that I was probably going to be a punk rocker for Halloween and she said-
"But, that's how you are normally!!"
Now, today I was wearing my Killers t-shirt, red jeans, my black leather messanger bag which I kidnapped from my mother, and my trusty brown boots. She tried to say that this outfit was punk, when in reality it looked more scene kid.

If we want to see what punk is-a perfect example would be Sid Vicious, former bassist for the Sex Pistols. The daily punk uniform includes (or it used to anyway)
A leather jacket
acid washed jeans
offending images/sayings printed on t-shirt
Black worn out converse
in a woman's case-the possible plaid skirt
Motorcycle boots
Doc Martens
Now of course not all of these things are to be worn at the same time. A good example of female punk style would definitely be Blondie's frontwoman Debbie Harry.

A scene kid's daily uniform consists of essentially what I was wearing today.
tight, skinny, Colored Jeans
Poorly done eyeliner
Band t-shirt
unusual color in the hair
ipod in the ears
Angsty band playing on said ipod

A good example of male scene kid fashion-Fall out Boy

Female scene kid fashion-Haley Williams of Paramore

Glad I could clear that up. I obviously tend to lean towards scene kid fashion, but I do enjoy the punk look. I wish I owned a pair of Doc Martens.

The Post in Which I Decide That No, He Doesn't Look a Thing like Jesus. But He Does Talk Like A Gentelman.

(That picture was taken at the show I went to!! that amazing dance move was during "Spaceman")

Yes indeed. This September I was able to attend a magically spectacular display of amazingness, otherwise known as a Killers concert. I went with Suze, by dearest best friend and we brought the house down :D
The opening act was really good, although try as we might we just could not catch the name of their band!! After they finished we expected to be amazed by the band we had actually payed to see, but instead we were met by a 10 minute intermission to set up the next surprise's gear.
We were then treated to yet another opening act, which did not sit well with the restless, Killers hungry crowd. It wasn't because the crowd didn't want another opening act, it was because we were being treated to the musical stylings of a MARIACHI BAND!!! Not only does no one enjoy mariachi, but the lead singer obviously had no idea that an audience of mainly Mormons doesn't like to hear you use the f-word multiple times. They were endless and no one wanted to hear them after about their third song.
Then, it was time. The Killers took the stage in all their 80's throwback GLORY! They did one song, and then started into "Human". They opening sinth chords were the only thing to get out tho, as we were soon beset with technical difficulties. After 20 minutes of endless waiting, we finally got the Killers back. They were able to start "Human" over and delight the crowd in every way. The mosh pit was extra peppy and jumped up and down to every song, ALONG with the crowd in the seats! No one was siting for the entire show. They played all their hits, such as "Spaceman", "Dustland Fairytale", "Somebody Told Me", "Mr. Brightside" and many others. I loved how they did the ending to "Dustland Fairytale" by starting into "Can't Help Falling in Love" and ending it with that. It was so romantic and the crowd sang along with Brandon as the guitar player was illuminated with heavenly rays.
"Mr. Brightside" probably got the biggest crowd reaction as when Brandon introduced it, no one knew what song he was talking about. The whole arena knew all the words and sang right along while jumping up and down in time.
"All These Things That I've Done" had the best ending, as they added extra stanza's of "I got soul, but I'm not a soldier." To appease everyone. At the end of the song a cannon of confetti was shot off, showering the now happy crowd.
The encore was "When You Were Young" (Hence the title of this post) No one was sitting still and everyone used what was left of their voices (I know I hardly had one) to sing along with the tale about the non-Jesus lookalike.
I walked away with an amazing black t-shirt that had all the Killers faces on it and was styled in a fashion that they resembled the cover of the Beatles album "Let it Be"

The Post in Which I Marvel at the Sheer Awesomeness of Casey Blake's Beard

Casey Blake has such an epic beard. Yea, you can tell it's Monday because I'm talking about beards. Although Monday's are made more bearable by the fact that they are early out days. I have so much to do tonight that my brain is going to explode in one massive KABLAM! My creative juices have been dry for a few days so I haven't been able to come up with a decent lead for my coming article. I think I may have come up with one during US history today, which is a good sign. I have two different tests to study for tonight, which does not sound fun at all right now. I have one in biology which I must pass or be smitten by my mother. The other one is in english which should be easier seeing as well, I'm good at English. I hate A-days so much.
Well, that's all for me today. The family and I are going to catch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs later on today.

The Post in Which I Wish I Could Windmill Like Pete Townshend

Welcome to the musings of a classic rock lover, wannabe punk rocker, hardcore hippie, football lovin, baseball watching chick. In this blog I will just talk about whatever is relevent to me at that moment. Today I'm gonna start my list of my 20 favorite songs. (The list changes often)

#1. Let it Be-The Beatles
This song has such a simple and beautiful message-just let it be. Everything will sort itself out, just let it be.
Paul McCartney wrote this song after he had a dream in which his mother appeared to him and told him to "Let it be." The song features Paul at the piano, John Lennon playing bass, George on guitars, Ringo on drums, and Billy Preston playing the organ. It has many cover versions by artists such as John Denver, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers (of "Lean on Me" fame), Carol Woods and Timothy Mitchum from the movie "Across the Universe", Joan Baez and others. My favorite out of all of these is the version from "Across the Universe". The addition of the gospel choir really added another demention to the meaning of the song.
When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer. let it be.
Let it be, let it be...
And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, .....
