:iconpartypoisonlaplz: MARU'S NOTE: As a member of the DA group :iconmcrdeviantclub: I offered to host this article by group-founder :icontoad1: on my journal so she could have the use of thumbnails for gallery features. I'm not the author of this interview nor the photographer in question, I'm merely doing a favor for the group MCR fans, enjoy!
If you look at ~GIVEthemHORNS's gallery, you'll find a variety of great shots ranging from concerts to cute kittens. But she's most famous for her black-and-white photo of Mikey. This dramatic closeup with no special effects or makeup has inspired several artists.
In this interview, %MCRdeviantClub asks her about her band photography and her experiences in the field.
How did you get the opportunity to photograph the band? (Both the photoshoots and the concert photos, assuming tho

YES folks it's that time again.... TEST your might is back in action. Not to be confused with the regular battles these are training sessions to show off your garnered skills honed from battle.
This time ANYONE is open to join. Even better the deadline is very cushy for those procrastinators. (like me!!!) And even better still you will get the theme up front!!
Last time we payed homage to our first battles and the results, in a time crunched arena were amazing. Might's were tested!!! This time we are paying homage to our very first tournament and since it's October it makes perfect sense.
The theme: Anime Cosplay Halloween
That means dress up any character from an anime in a Halloween Costume. Yes, anyone from Goku, to Gaara, Monkey D. Luffy , to Spike Spiegel ... ANY ANIME character is allowed. ANY costume is allowed. REMEMBER the theme is Hall
Devious Journal EntryStrasznie mi się w przeciągu kilku dni wszystko poplątało . Sprawy nałożył się na siebie z ogromną prędkością, i wszystko przytłacza. Doszłam do wniosku, że póki co mój styl rysowania jest zwyczajnie beznadziejny, i dla między innymi samej siebie muszę odnaleźć kreskę, która będzie mi odpowiadać. Nie za prosta, ale też aby nie było nazbyt zawiła. A takie znalezienie, przez co każdy zapewne przechodził, wiąże się z zawalonym biurkiem papierami o szkicach postaci, ich charakterach, oczach, czy innych częściach ciała.Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Devious Journal EntryFrankly I’ve been hearing a lot of hypocritical bull shit.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ll give you a generalised being from what I’ve seen/read/whatever (and you might learn some psychology from this also);
There’s this guy, let’s call him Terry- ok? This isn’t someone I know, this isn’t anyone you’ll know, this is just a made up person called Terry who carries all of the opinions of all the people I’m talking/will talk about later on.
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’. He’s heard of Sophie Lancaster (a young british woman who both she and her boyfriend were attacked for being goths- she

Another interview with Mikey (about the new bass)Apparently everyone wants to interview Mikey lately, here's another interview about the bass he designed. He tells some interesting stories and talks a little about his past.Another interview with Mikey (about the new bass)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years, Mikey Way had thought about his perfect bass.
How could he combine the booming thump of a Precision Bass with the short scale of a Mustang?
With the unveiling of the Squier Mikey Way Mustang Bass, the My Chemical Romance bassist finally found his answer.
Working with Squier’s designers, Way amped up the typical Mustang with a large-flake Silver Sparkle finish and black racing stripes, a single seismic humbucking pickup with a black cover, and a black headstock with Way’s signature on the back.
“I tried to make an amalgamation of the two, like if a P Bass and a Mustang got into a car accident, this is what it would be,” Way told Fender.com as he held the completed instrument for the first time. “It’s a hell of a lot of fun to play, really. I love full scale to

New interview + Submission rules updateA short interview with the band about Danger Days and the next album: http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/ipad/how-to-follow-the-black-parade/story-fn6ci0vj-1226306366079New interview + Submission rules update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love the photoshoot. Finally, a photo where Ray's in front. I love how shy Gerard looks.
As for submissions, I've decided to no longer accept WIPs. The group galleries are overstuffed already, and I don't see why they need several versions if one piece, so I'm limiting them to finished art only.
I've also gotten stricter about submissions that have little to do with MCR. If I'm not sure about something, I'll ask you- but if you just take a photo of yourself and slap a MCR song lyric on it, I'm not accepting it. The same goes for drawings that have nothing to do with MCR except a song lyric title or something. Photos/drawings that were inspired by the band are still acceptable.
Also, just to be clear: The group gallery is for art, not journals. I'd also appreciate it if you all reviewed the submission rules, because
Pete Wentz and I Got ArrestedOkay I know I should be in school, but I slept in and blah-blah-blah. But anyway, I had the weirdest (awesomest) dream last night.Pete Wentz and I Got Arrested2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so I think it was like Christmas Eve, and I had to go over my Aunt's, but it wasn't my Aunt's house. It was some weird white house with candles and awkwardness. Uh, Patrick Stump was my uncle. It was back when he was chubby and he was wearing a beanie and he looked really cute. ANYWAY people who were supposed to be my family was there and for some reason the house had a room that was like my parents' room in my house and I was like laying on the bed. And then Pete Wentz and Patrick came up the steps and were talking about something in the hallway. Pete was like "What are we gonna do?" and Patrick was like "I dunno, I love you." and dlkfjlksdjflkds awkward. I think it was Patrick who went back downstairs and Pete came into the room I was in so I pretended to be asleep, but I kept opening my eyes. He just awkwardly stood in the room, stared at the close

The new features:
Journal skins and thumbnails Now I can post interviews and features here instead of asking members with subscriptions to do it.
Custom titles Instead of just "Contributors," we can have whatever titles for members we want. I'm not exactly sure what to do with this, so any suggestions? (I'm not making people admins because I prefer to do everything myself.) I'm thinking about making a "Killjoys" section for KJ accounts.
"Deviant Meets" app Now you have a special place to post your KJ meetups.

The End of My Chemical RomanceYesterday One of the most inspirational bands for many people announced that they will no longer continue:The End of My Chemical Romance9 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.
My Chemical Romance."
Here Are some Send off's written by members of the fan base:
"To everyone that heard the news that MCR broke up, I just wanna say, stay strong.
MCR has helped so many people, probably even yourself, in so many ways.
For me, they helped me get through even the most difficult times in my life.
Their music took my pain away. They made me happy.
And they will continue doing so even if they're gone.
So just hang in there everyone, and don't forget wh
Interview with LanaVivaThis group only recently discovered ~lana-llama, but everyone has already fallen in love with her art. She has great skill as a portrait artist, and her imaginative watercolors are unlike anything you've ever seen. Here, I asked her some questions to get more insight into her expressive work.Interview with LanaViva2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(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

(Family/marriage issues) well I ran in town with her and I turned on Welcome to the black parade and she started crying. And I was like "you okay?" And she was like,"this song is so sad..can we listen to a different song?" Soooo I changed it to Teenagers cause she likes that song.

I now know what it's like to be part of a familyI have never felt more at home than I was squished at the front of the mosh pit at the My Chemical Romance concert. My feet may be bruised black and purple, I may be missing a few handfuls of hair and my hearing may never return - but that was STILL the SINGLE BEST MOMENT of my ENTIRE FUCKING LIFE.I now know what it's like to be part of a family2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I somehow got shoved and pushed and tackled all the way to the front, right beneath Gerard himself. The fact that we made eye contact and he smiled (yes it was only for a split second but still) was like.... LIFE CHANGING. Everything they did, everything they said, every smile and every jump has been burnt into my memory.
I'll never forget last night.
Now I get what everyone is going on about when they say that MCR are a Live band. Though I may have been one of the thousand or so kids in the pavilion, it still felt like they were singing for me. Im sure my friends can say exactly the same thing. It's incredible.
Undoubtedly there will be a spike in my MCR obsession for the next few months XD

Sing it out
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
