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.”

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)8 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
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

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?

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

He tells some interesting stories and talks a little about his past.Another interview with Mikey (about the new bass)3 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

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

Discussion: MCR's LegacyA few years ago, when Mikey sent Gerard a birthday tweet, he called Gerard a “future rock legend.” I’ve wondered lately if MCR will stand the test of time. They’re not one of those bands who had one or two hits and then fizzled into obscurity, but I’m not sure if I see people still listening to MCR in future decades. Their current fans will probably listen to them as adults, and maybe their kids will become fans, but do I think MCR will be the next Beatles? Probably not.Discussion: MCR's Legacy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think they’ll last longer than some other bands, because their music and concepts were innovative. I think of them as the thinking man’s “emo” band (not that I consider them emo, but I can’t think of a better word.) They had dark, angsty songs that teenagers love, but without the usual weak vocals, bland and childish lyrics, and repetitive tunes that have been used in a thousand other songs. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge doesn’t sound like anyt

Something you should read about suicideThough I think suicide is not a big deal and I honestly don't give a shit about it, since it's just one way to die, I felt the need to copypaste an old thread from 4chan that I totally agree with. I think this might help.Something you should read about suicide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off: THESE WORDS ARE NOT MINE. Are you able to understand this? Don't start bitching about this thread and please, stop insulting me. If you are depressed and want to read words like "Nuuu dont leave this world I luv u your imprtant ((", stop reading now. The guy who wrote this wanted to cheer up everyone, using apparently mean terms. It's from 4chan, for fuck's sake, don't expect delicate words for crybabies.
Also, I'd been suicidal for years. So don't even try to tell me shit.
Thread starts HERE.
I never got why people would kill themselves.
So if you want to die you obviously don’t give a shit. Like, about anyone. ‘Cause if there is anyone who loves you, you don’t give a FUCK about them, or hurting them, and if there’s not, the
