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
“I write them wherever I may happen to be when I get hit with inspiration. A lot of times I just make notes of sentences. What I usually do is write paragraphs of free style, just really descriptive phrases and I’ll draw upon those phrases later. I try to get the sound before I get the lyrics.”
"Freedom is a real big theme. We needed freedom to happen for us on this record so
Gerard-- a life in quotes (final part)“I had a discussion with Lindsey about [the new album] and I was like, ‘Wow, all this stuff I’m writing is kind of full of hate. I don’t know why that is.’ She’s like, ‘Cause you’re happy.’”Gerard-- a life in quotes (final part)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
“We have the best fans in the world because they are pretty much as crazy as we are.”
“I don’t know why but I’ve always hated myself. Hopefully that self-hate is growing into something else now; hopefully it’s grown into caring about myself and wanting to stay alive.”
“Nobody’s in the middle with us. It’s either ‘I love them’ or ‘I want to kill them’. People love us and believe in us or they want to see us destroyed. And I love that.”
“I needed [the support of my bandmates]. I’m still scared, though; I worry it could happen again and

“It’s amazing to be here with people who love music in a non-violent way. If you’re mad, don’t throw a punch, don’t start a fire about it, don’t shout about it. Sing, that’s the most powerful weapon you have.”
"I thought if we made an album that tried to change the world, or give it hope, it would really happen. But all people found was death and destruction and misery and self-hate. I learned that the world doesn't want to be saved, and it will fucking punch you in the face if you try."
"Me and my kid brother used to grow up—we used to grow up? Everybody used to grow up! We had comics, and that’s the only thing we had to escape the kind of place we lived in. And it made us lift up our heads, make
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 2)“It’s more important to keep yourself alive, there’s nothing worth ever hurting yourself over. I mean, I’m a person that goes through a lot of depression, and stress, and things like that. I’m generally happier these days. But I have, it’s normal, it’s completely normal to be depressed.

"Yeah, obviously we use vampires as a metaphor for something else, something deeper than just the supernatural. But there's just something about the bloodsucking walking dead, that can say so much to people. There are really so many people trying to get control over you on a daily basis and steal your soul in some way, take a part of you..."
"It all started off with the best intentions, but I took it too far and I ended up on a trip. There were some moments when I felt like I was on a crusade. I don’t k

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.

Interview with KalaxXx (worked as the band's tech)1.How did you get the job? How long did you work for the band?Interview with KalaxXx (worked as the band's tech)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a few good contacts that helped me get a place in the crew, apart from that I had to do 6 months of live sound training prior in this place in Dublin to just apply for it. Luckily i succeeded and I ended up latching on to the Europe tour in 2011. I'm only young (I was the baby of the tour) and last year,which was my Sophomore year, you don't do that much in Ireland so my school gave me a month's leave but I was away for about 3 weeks, the 4th week was for recovery and getting used to decent food again.
2.What exactly did you have to do?
I had a few different jobs. My main one had the title of 'Audio Technician' if you want to be exact but it's just fancy for roadie, I did some work on the front of house (the soundboard) and made sure that everything was working and plugged in. I also carried a shit load of guitars and brought equipment to and from places which is much much much harder than it sounds, especially if yo

Tribute to 1st Doctor: The universal citizenTribute to 1st Doctor: The universal citizen2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This Doctor which usually gets over-looked, described usually as a grumpy crotchety old man, as a “frail-looking but wiry and tough as an old turkey”, well, that he was, but he also had a wonderful childish, impish excitement which would shine through at times.
Have you ever thought what it's like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension? Have you? To be exiles? As we learn about each other, so we learn about ourselves.
Machines can make laws, but they can not preserve justice. Only human beings can do that. It all started out as a mild curiosity in the junkyard, and now it's turned out to be quite a great spirit of adventure.
Our lives are important — at least to us — and as we see, so we learn... Our destiny is in

The Signless final sermonI have been peaceful.The Signless final sermon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been kind.
I only dare to speak what
others have been dreaming for so long.
I had dreams to. Dreams of
what might have been.
Where blood was simply blood.
And all of us were equal.
If wishing for that is herricy, then "yes" I deserve to die.
I've seen acts of the most sublime kindness, and the most vile cruelty.
They say powerful beings find anger when they have no room for love.
What made you so?
Are you scared of change?
Scared of those who are different?
I realize, I am different from you.
I have known feeling that none of you can ever hope to know.
I have known the comrodery of a friend who supported me against all odds.
I have known a compassion of a guardian who took me in who no others would, and raised me to dream and hope.
I have known a love and passion that transcended definition.
There is no use hiding it now...
You all can see me for what I am!
The signless, the sufferer, the mutant.
My blood burns brightly for all to see.
It is a flame of a re
