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.
