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)4 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

“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.

Fighting for Scotland (Final Update)So if you haven't heard yet Scotland voted no to independence. And believe me right now, even though the title of this journal is true, I've never wanted to scream and shout in anger as badly as I do now. I know everyone has there reasons to vote yes and no but my country has always been known as 'Scotland the Brave' and we've just shown the world how fearful we are. The only country to ever be offered independence and we turned it down. And I don't like how the people on TV go "Scotland has voted no", no not all of Scotland voted NO, a lot of us voted YES.Fighting for Scotland (Final Update)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What happens now is that I have to go out and take pictures of the aftermath for college. Wish me luck. Maybe next time I'll do a journal I'll actually have a bit of good news and when I'm feeling better and not angry.
As always, leaving with a feature.

HE LIVED ALL ALONE...
IN A WORN OUT HOUSE MADE OF
PLASTER AND STONE.
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO
IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.
I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS,
NOT EVEN A TREE.
NO STOCKING BY THE MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES
OF LONG GONE BANDS.
WITH RAYGUN HOLES,
AND SCRATCHES OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.
FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
I FOUND THE HOME OF A KILLJOY,
ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.
THE KILLJOY LAY SLEEPING,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR
IN THIS WORN DOWN HOME.
THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED
A FREEDOME FIGHTING SOLDIER.
WAS THIS THE HERO
OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO,
THE FLOOR FOR A BED?
I REALIZED THE FAMILIES
THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
NEEDED TO THANK THE KILLJOYS
WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.
SOON IN THE NEW CITIES OF THE WORLD,

“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.”

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.

Love Core's Past Memories.
Prologue: The First Memory.
There was a room which was white I was in it. I remember opening my eyes and seeing people, scientists. They asked me what I liked. I remember saying, "I don't like, but I love, love." The scientists nodded and wrote on a paper. I remember them calling me the Love Core.
One male scientist picked me up and put me on a white machine. I stayed on there for quite a while. They later brought in another core, Grey with a blue eye. They put him on to the machine too. They called him Wheatley, the Intelligence Dampening Core.
I had a conversation with him. He was nice. I loved everything but not as much as I loved Wheatley. I looked into his eye and saw he loved me back. We were together for a long time on that machine. It wasn't much

You were on your way somewhere with John. 'Oh John', you thought, 'WHY DON'T YOU TAKE THE HINTS?!' you screamed at him in your mind. You see, this boy is about as oblivious as a potato. You've been hanging out with the raven haired nerd all week and NOTHING! You sighed and he looked at you. "Something wrong (Y/N)?" he asked with concern lacing in his voice and on his facial expression. You chuckled halfheartedly and shook your head. "I'm fine John. Really" you said reassuringly. "Ok.... If you say so" he said a bit hesitant.
Suddenly, John reached his hand out and clasped yours. You blushed heavily and looked up at him. He had a bright blush himself as he smiled goofily at you. You smiled back shyly and entwined your fingers with his. After a while of comfortable silence, you both arrived to your destination. The annual fair. Since it was only once a year and apparently John never went, you took him with you.
John watched as your eyes lit
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)4 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

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

Follow me, the way they've told you to be seen
Follow me, and we'll meddle with the stars
Can you believe your jumped-up heroes to be thieves?
Still you long to kiss their apathetic hearts
Everything I need is everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that fed to me
Everything I feel is everything I'm told to be
Everything I see is everything I'm led to believe
Follow me as we soar across this wayward sea
Or there you'll stand, divided from the stars
From what I see there's barely a true soul to reap
Deliberate or sleepwalk through reality
Everything I need everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that's fed to me
In everything I feel that everything's a
