Tomorrow I get to see my favourite band live. My Chemical Romance.

Sometimes I don’t really know how to express how much much this band and their music and their messages mean to me. But here are some lyrics from a musical that kind of explain part of it. MCR changed my life

Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

And because I knew you...

Because I knew you...

Because I knew you...

I have been changed for good

Lyrics are from 'For Good' - Wicked

Speak out, without speaking.
For 25hrs from April 24th to April 25th I will be staying silent. You could donate $1 and help stop a 25 year war in Uganda.

Why donate? Joseph Kony has been abducting children and recruiting them for his army as well as killing the children for 25 years.

Go to Invisible Children for more details and to My Invisible Children fundraising page
to donate $1 or any amount you prefer to donate.

It's not just about donating, it's also about spreading awareness and helping to end a war.

Please help the child soldiers and help me reach my goal of $25.

Thank you.

listening to...

Please don’t shoot me if you call yourself a big Green Day fan... I haven’t listened to this album in at least 6 months or any Green Day song really, it could even be a longer period of time than 6 months too.

I really got into this album and Green Day in my second and final year of highschool (2004-2005) but had always known when growing up who Green Day were and their music. Listening to this album now in whole reminds me a lot of my final HS years/days and the one and only Green Day show I went to on my own lol It’s funny and i kick myself thinking about it but i had no idea who My Chemical Romance were back then so i never saw their support performance for Green Day.. i came to the venue later.. just to see a bit of Jimmy Eat World and Green Day. MCR are my favourite band currently.. in case you already couldn’t tell ;)

I really should have a sit down though and listen to 21st Century Breakdown. I remember being somewhat excited about it before it was released and then i never actually bothered to give a shot and a good listen :(

And this video has made my day ten times more awesome
TUA - awesome

Patrick Stump playing every fucking instrument he knows how to play and some new awesome news revealed at the end of the video :D

I also forgot to post this great news from the other day
TUA - awesome
One of my facebook status messages on Friday/Saturday was: Invisible Children just called me up from San Diego & left a voice msg on my phone. If Invisible Children can ring me up from San Diego, you can take the time to vote on facebook for them. They deserve to win $1 million. Please go vote now :)

On the Invisible Children blog this is what they wrote:

Last night, at 8:59pm, Invisible Children won $1 Million Dollars in the Chase Community Giving Facebook competition. It was a week long competition, and it came down to the wire. IC won with 123990, and the second place Isha Foundation had 122742. Not only that, but Isha was gaining on us by 300 votes every 5 minutes. If the competition had been 30 minutes longer… we would have lost.

As you can imagine, when 9:00 PM hit with us in the lead, tears burst out and we all leapt in the air screaming with our already hoarse voices! The screaming and dancing didn’t stop for hours.

We are forever indebted to everyone of you. You called your friends, you tweeted, you put up with our barrage of facebook comments and updates, notes, tagged pictures, blast emails. We pulled out every stop and every favor. And YOU guys did it. Every one of you that responded, even if you did it out of fear that some intern was going to call you again, YOU did it!

We love and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. And we will walk you all through every penny of this money. We will prove that Invisible Children was the best charity to steward this money to maximum impact. And we are very blessed to now be able to help Haiti in this time of tragedy in such a major way.
Again, endless and humbled thanks.

I was so happy to find out that they had won :D And i still can't believe they rang me up haha. Also i only just put voicemail on my phone during the week too so that was good timing.
