My Chemical Romance 3/15/07 Green Day 9/24/05
I Was There
So, I?m 17 1/2. 5?2? and a senior in high school. Love music but don?t play an instrument ? though I am quite fond of air drums and guitar. I write crazy stories. You see, this is what I have to work with so that?s why they?re so fucked up. Don?t give me that look. I like it. I have red striped hair on brown and it's pretty long at the moment.
I would probably have to label Green Day as my number 1 band. Billie Joe, Mike and Tre are my first loves and the reason I am alive now really. They got me through some depression last year and some drinking. This year has been just as much of a rollercoaster or more even, but a lot happier I think. I have a beer every once in awhile, but nothing like it used to be.
On December 20th, 2006, me and a friend got to meet Mike Dirnt at Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe! That was the most awesome moment, and he truly is a very nice guy. I hated to intrude, but I did get an autograph on a napkin. Me and my friend were pretty much in shock after that, and as he and his family were leaving, he came back over to our table and handed us a guitar pick he found in his pocket. He said, "Sorry I don't have two, you guys will have to cut it in half." We did too. :)
And here's an awesome story: this year I found out that I babysit for the second drummer of the band The Offspring when they were first starting out. He lives across the street, wife, two kids and is now a doctor. I never would have guessed It's a fucking small world. We got him to sign their very first album that he played on.
I want a couple of tattoos, just another few months until I am legal for California. The first is an all black copy of the heart grenade on American Idiot. It's for the album and it pretty much sums up my life in a bunch of ways that would take another three pages to say, but don't get me wrong, I listen to every album of Green Day pretty equally. They are one of the few bands where I truly love every one. I would also like a little red star on my hand (yes, much like Billie Joe's (for him in a way (because Billie writes the majority of the lyrics and that's what got me loving them))). It would be my Waiting lucky star as other Green Day fans have done, as well as the guys.
If you have not read Catcher in the Rye, do it. It's really a great book. Yes, people will be forced to read it in class, but don't let that ruin it for you. I will admit I read it because of Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?, the fact that it is Billie Joe's favorite book as well as Kurt Kobain's, and Gerard Way and Frank Iero's come to find out. I have not had the chance, but it's a book I would really like to read again, and believe me, if I want to do that, it's fucking good.
Another great non-fiction book is called Hardcore Zen. It's about a guy who starts out in punk rock bands in the states and ends up becoming a certified Buddist priest in Japan. It's actually a very funny book and a great view of how Buddism is not a religion but a philosophy and a way of life. He writes much like I do actually, but at the same time it's a book that really has a level head, understands punk mentality and makes you think about your own life. Plus, it lets anyone at all read it and understand regardless of whether or not you know anything about Buddism at all to begin with.
Below on my profile there are the great 10 Commandments of MCR. I wrote the 10 Commandments of Green Day, and me and a friend co-wrote the 10 Commandments of HIM. Listen to them. Love em. If you are still reading this, I absolutely love you. Umm?be excellent to each other. Party on dudes. And, Everyone, just get through high school. It can get better. You don't ever have to stop being punk though. Rock on.
The Offspring (My Mommy's fault since I was five and Smash came out along with Dookie.)
My Chemical Romance
Def Leppard (Mommy's fault since forever too. Saw them in concert Aug 2006.)
Nirvana (Wait, that was Mommy too.)
The Living End
Metallica (My Mom listens to good music, I realize now she gave me half of these bands.)
And a few songs by:
The White Stripes
And I will admit, a few also by:
Damn, my Mom also was the one to give me Seether, Rob Zombie, White Zombie and Korn. That's pretty kick ass I think. You would never guess by looking at her. Now my dad, that is a whole nother story. Eww. He has bad music. Metallica the Black Album good...country and elevator music bad.
This IS my religion:
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF A GREEN DAY
1. Thou shall not leave thy friends in need.
2. Thou shall live in the minority as sons of rage and love.
3. Thou shall thank your lucky stars.
4. Thou shall whine about nothing and everything all at once.
5. Thou shall spend a day of pot and blow off steam with methamphetamine.

7. Thou shall respect the messiah, Michael, the king, Tre, and the lord, Billie Joe.
8. Thou shall sing the holy hymns of the sweet children.
9. Thou shall not ask ?why??. (Tis a lesson learned in time.)
10. Thou shall rock hard (if need be, pantsless).
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF A CHEMICAL ROMANCE

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF HIM

2. Thou shall heal thyself in order to heal thy lover.
3. Thou shall keep in good mind: love is insane and thou are't too.
4. Thou shall burn in water and drown in flame for love.
5. Thou shall not razorblade kiss thy lover for lust alone.
6. Thou shall live beyond silver and gold or judgement of souls.
7. Thou shall love the written words of the lord, Ville.
8. Thou shall honor love and sing the holy hymns of thy Infernal Majesty.
9. Thou shall tell thy lover, "thou are't beautiful."
10. Thou shall live to join thy lover in death.
"Look down at me, you see a fool; Look up at me, you see a god; Look straight at me, you see yourself."
"If for one minute you think you're better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about."
"School is practice for future life, practice makes perfect and nobodys perfect, so why practice?"
~Billie Joe Armstrong
