The Academy Is... split up yesterday. SURPRISE!

For a band that has maybe two songs that I can listen to without cracking up/changing tracks, I'm sort of in love with them. They're just so... sweet. With a heavy side of derp, but I think that's just part of the package. And in following with their sweet, earnest love fest cum band legacy, they just enacted what I think may be the most amicable split in the history of the internet.











Michael Guy Chislett and Andy Mrotek are the ones leaving, so I'm a little curious about how this whole big fourth album Bill keeps hyping is gonna get recorded, minus a lead guitar and drummer. Oh well. I'm shallow. All I care about is the continuation of stuff like-


You get the idea.

Anyway.

Vices & Virtues: It Came





Bitchy interviews? Snide Q&A's? Nah, just write some songs about it.

Stay classy, boys. ♥



Can I voice right here just how much I prefer a bunch of jaded, jilted, cranky songs probably about ex-bandmates to schmoopy ballads about current girlfriends? Even if said schmoopy ballad is stuffed in between like, seven odes of adoration probably to your current bandmate. Bring on the angst; the more unapologetic the better.



The b-sides, guys. The b-sides.

D: + fish sticks + Saves The Day = :D (It's like Chris Conley feels all of my feelings, and then we sing about them together! yes, I am the center of the universe. why do you ask?)

I feel like kind of a failure every time I look at my flist and see [livejournal.com profile] bbbartists calling for pinch-hitters in the first round. I know it's ridiculous and it would make me miserable to even try and that I have an art lineup as long as my arm to cram in before August, but I still feel like a lazy failure kind of. Woe.

PLAIDPANTS! :DDDDD


Brendon outfit? I... keep drawing him in slightly different versions of what he keeps wearing on stage this tour. I think I'm emotionally invested in the suspenders.

Yeah, in the previous post you spammed me with a picture of Brendon in the comment thread. He was wearing that exact same suspenders-bowtie-glasses outfit.

Do you think perhaps he and Patrick Stump are actually regenerations of the Doctor?

Okay, that's what I thought you meant. I may be slightly enamored with that particular stage getup, idk. I'm all about simplicity, especially after the fucking Nothing Rhymes With Circus Tour. We don't even go there. (and take a second to appreciate my stopping, looking at what I just typed, and filling in the NRWCT for you. Take a sec. I'll wait. :D)

Oh, and no, it isn't the same. SIGH. I keep forgetting about the short sleeves. ...Not that it mattered today...~

Hahahah Urie? No. Patrick? Yes. Maybe. Yes.

HOLY SHIT RYAN'S HAT. CAN HE NARRATE MY LIFE, KTHX? OR AT LEAST PROVIDE SNARKY COMMENTARY?

These are seriously the funnest, these drawings. Srsly. :D


It kind of surprised me how un-emotionally invested I am in TAI. Like, obviously they are 90% terrible, 9% LULZ and 1% good, but I was sad for maybe .25 seconds--mostly while I was trying to decipher what Beckett wrote on that website--before I gleefully sprinted for my phone and texeted you. And then I went looking for bawwww-ing fangirls on twitter. #schadenfreude

...I'd say that I would just follow you around in hats and scarves making snarky comments, but I know it wouldn't be the same. I'm sorry.

...Wait. That's pretty much our friendship in a nutshell already, isn't it?

I'M SORRY I CAN'T BE RYAN ROSS.


You're surprised? Dude, all we do is laugh at them and make ridiculous high-pitched noises over pictures of William Beckett. If that's what constitutes presumed emotional attachment to you...
Lol.

ICEBERGS.

Bb, Ryan Ross comes with Beatles nostalgia. You come with spastic cats. You win.

I've always seen our friendship as more of a Gabanti & Beckett type thing. Except William's hair is prettier than mine.



I always get all sentimental about like ~~the end of an era~~ regardless of how much I know/care about something. Eh. But like I said: .25 seconds. LOL AT FANGIRLS REWATCHING TAI TV.

Maybe he was eating salad? Or watching Titanic?

I managed not to post the pic I took this morning of Patrick K. sitting on my shoulder. You should be SO PROUD.

A HA HA HA in that most of the sage life advice I give you happens when I'm drunk? Yeah. Yeah that'd be about right. Psh. Did you see his hair in that Smith's cover YouTube thing?



I think you could have stopped that pronouncement at "I always get sentimental" and that'd pretty much have it covered. ILU :DDDDDD


DUDE that reminds me, I had this awesome dream about eating chicken curry salad in bibb lettuce wraps. Fuck. I need to go shopping.
(My guess was for Titanic from the start. Or at least, like. Allegorically.)

*high five* Catrick <333


And, y'know, the propensity toward bright colors.
What hair? You mean that mop on his head? Lol.


Yeeeeeeeeeeah. Glad it's an endearing quality, at least.

Okay: YUM. Do it.

I'm flying, Pete Jack!
