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.”

“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.”

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.

Right now I can't believe it's real. It feels like a dream. What upsets me most isn't the loss of new music: I still like MCR, but they haven't been my favorite band for a long time. I'm not sure what happened, I guess I just "grew out" of the music and started listening to other things.
But I was still very invested in the guys and their lives, as well as the fandom here, and-- as silly as this sounds-- i

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

Fact: Mikey Way has been dating a 20-year old girl named Sarah while still technically married to Alicia.
Also a fact: Mikey and Alicia have been discussing a divorce for a while and, contrary to what everyone thinks, she didn't just find out about Sarah from the Instagram.
Mikey told Gerard about this a while ago, and therefore everyone who's actually, you know, fucking involved (cough cough unlike us cough) already knew.
So, to every MCR fan who's been all-out bitching against Mikey, making assumptions and judging without knowing the full situation, saying you've "lost all respect for Mikey": an enormous fuck you. I say that in the most loving way possible.
We are the MCRmy. This is a band that has given us a home in this world, and so many of us wouldn't have made it

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Stalking vs. Normal Fan BehaviorMy Chemical Romance, as far back as I can remember, has never had a normal fan base. The fans have always had a certain passion and drive for the band that many other bands cannot replicate and arouse in their own fans. This devotion has led to good developments within the fan base with such projects like #Sing it for Japan, a music video driven by mostly fan made creations. Yet amidst all of this are some controversial acts of devotion that have sparked a split within much of the fan base in what is right or wrong.Stalking vs. Normal Fan Behavior3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The controversial behavior in question started to appear more frequently during the band’s Black Parade Tour in 2007. Video footage of fans stalking them to their hotel is all over YouTube: fans screaming for them to sign things well into the night. It should come to no surprise though. My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade had sold 1,169,697 copies in the U.S alone by August 25, 2007. It was certified as 2X Platinum in the UK. By 2010, in t

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!
