Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now Terry likes Rock, Metal, Alternative, Screamo- all of that side of the genre. And in his life time he has either seen/experienced a lot of teasing for liking Rock and wearing black. So he’s moderately angsty. These people usually like the other side- Pop, R and B, Rap, Hip Hop etc etc. He doesn’t like those people, he won’t listen to that ‘crappy music’.

Info on the new albumGerard talked about the upcoming album on "Spoilers": http://www.altpress.com/news/entry/gerard_way_discusses_my_chemical_romances_5th_album_on_spoilers_with_kevin?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=altpressInfo on the new album3 years ago in Personal More Like This
He said, MCR 5, as he is calling it while it is in-progress, is "going rather quickly" and that the album is "very dark so far."
The album, Way hints, will also include the band's wearing costumes. He told Kevin Smith he's meeting with Colleen Atwood, who had designed the band's costumes since The Black Parade, soon to work out the costumes to accompany the next album.
Gerard also played "Small Petunia Of The Galaxy," a song he wrote for his daughter, from his iPhone during the interview.
Also if you're wondering why there hasn't been a discussion post recently, I've been working on one for a while but it's giving me a lot of trouble. Let me know if any of you want to write one. Surely there's SOMETHING you want to talk about.

Boy, you've got to see what tomorrow brings
Sing it out
Girl, you've got to be what tomorrow needs
For every time that they want to count you out
Use your voice every single time you open up your mouth
Sing it out, boy they're gonna sell what tomorrow means
Sing it out, girl before they kill what tomorrow brings
You've got to make a choice
If the music drowns you out
And raise your voice
Every single time they try and shut your mouth

Some words on the cheating scandalThis hasn’t been confirmed by the band (at the time of writing this), but there’s very strong evidence that Mikey has cheated on Alicia with another woman, who he’s now engaged to. Normally I wouldn’t bring this up until it was officially confirmed, but I do think certain things need to be said.Some words on the cheating scandal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, here’s the story: a woman named Sarah (I’ve heard she’s a 20-year-old model) posted photos on her Instagram of her and Mikey kissing and cuddling, and claimed to be engaged to him. Here are the photos: http://ffrankiero.tumblr.com/post/41569121654/moette-what-the-hell-is-going-on-im-so (She made her Instagram private after fans found it and started commenting.)
At first people thought that Mikey and Alicia broke up and didn’t tell anyone, but Alicia tweeted she’s devastated (she’s since made her account private), and Lyn-Z has backed her up and made angry tweets that are presumably about Mikey. So apparently this was news

(Please note that English is not her first language.)
1. Your gallery contains both creative fantasy drawings and traditional pencil portraits. Which do you prefer to draw and why?
I can’t exactly choose what I like more. It depends only on mood. Sometimes I can not exactly depict the pencil portrait, then I take watercolor paints and just fantasy. At the same time when I paint portraits I'm getting a little closer to these people. I just feel them alive.
2. I once read a quote that said something like “I never copy photographs exactly. Instead, I take what I want from the subject- and then I find that the subject reveals something to me in return.” W

So, the big project I've been working on is a Killjoy online multiplayer game. It's not extremely advanced with stunning graphics and special effects, but I still think it's pretty cool. I'm nowhere close to finishing, but I'm working pretty steadily on it. But lately I've just been pixelling tons of clothes because I've run out of ideas. This is what I have so far:
Sewing. If you have thread, a sewing kit, and the necessary fabric, you can combine these items- i. e. "sew"- to make clothing.
Cooking. Again with the right materials, you can make some food items. Some have to be "cooked," meaning that you go to a campfire and double-click the item in your inventory to put it in the pan. A minute later, the cooked item is in your inventory. You can eat it then, or put it in a bag to sell.
