Hey pals!

So I know a lot of you are VERY excited for Warped Tour this summer and some of that excitement might stem from nerves/the unknown. I can remember my first Warped back in 2002 and having butterflies the day before. What was it going to look like? How do I find my way around? Where can I find information on the bands? All the same sort of "first day of school" nerves were coursing through my body.

A few of my Warped Tour ticket stubs, I have even more. 

Well I would like to help any of you with anything you want to know/need advice on before you head out into the sun. I have been to Warped Tour as a fan, press and just to go hang out and support friends on the tour. I am happy to give any advice/answer any questions you might have as you head towards what will be one of your "best days ever."

Also, if you plan on heading to San Diego, Pomona and Ventura please come by and find me at the Buzznet tent.. I would LOVE to meet as many of you guys as possible and show off some cool new Buzznet features.

Anyway, leave your questions here, tweet me -- whatever; I am here to help you out. Because let's face it, #musicrules.

See ya in the pit!

So, since it will be the first time for Warped Tour to come to Holland this is going in the history books of Warped (to my opinion anyway).

Album Review: 'Fashionably Late' Falling In Reverse

Reblogged from elizabeth margaret

Although Fashionably Late has been streaming for a while now, today is its official release date! The 13-track album (non-deluxe) has both ups and downs and has been criticized for being a bit different than their debut album The Drug in Me Is You. Even though this album is different, it features new aspects that we haven’t seen from Falling In Reverse.

The first track sets the stage for the entire album. “Champion” starts out exactly how you think it would, but it then goes into a rap bit. This is the sign that this isn’t your classic FIR album.

The next track, “Bad Girls Club” is very reminiscent of MySpace era songs. Don’t take that the wrong way, though! I honestly really like this song. It’s fun and has a good beat. I do agree with the majority that thinks it has a very ‘Avril Lavigne’ tone, which is more comical than anything 

Rolling Stone” is another heavier song. The rap portion comes about half-way through and actually caught me by surprise the first time I heard it. It’s not the best rap part on the album, lyrically-wise, but it isn’t terrible, either. Like I may say many more times, it’s just different.

The album’s namesake song, “Fashionably Late” is probably my favorite song on the album. It has a little immaturity to it (“Without a doubt, sorry about makin’ out with your friends.” You be the judge), but it still has a good set-up and is by far the catchiest on the album.

The fifth song, “Alone” was what set the fan base abuzz with concern when it was released as the first single. Being heavier on the rap side, it was almost a culture shock for some. It may be my least favorite on the album, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good song. I appreciate whole-heartedly that Ronnie’s doing what he wants. 

Born To Lead” is the sixth song on the album. I’m a huge fan of the guitar solo in this. The lyrics aren’t bad, but album-wise, there are better. I do like the song, though. It has a nice feel to it and a good message behind the lyrics.

Next up is “It’s Over When It’s Over”. This song talks about Ronnie’s journey and struggles. This is another one of my favorites on the album. It’s personal and there’s nothing I like more than seeing into the reasoning behind a song.

Game Over” is my all-time favorite. I may be partial because I’m a video game nerd, but this song is just too fun to deny. The idea of a music video for this would be amazing. I can only imagine the creative things Ronnie would do with this.

 The ninth song is “Self-Destruct Personality”. It’s another one of the heavier songs on the album. Although this song has a rap breakdown in it, at this point in the album, you stop caring about the format the lyrics come in and begin caring more about the music itself.

The next song is “F**k The Rest”. This is one of the few, rare songs that actually bring a smile to my face. It starts out with his dog, “Charlie”, barking and Ronnie pleading for him to quiet down so that he can sing. I’m a sucker for anything animal-related, so it got me right from the start. It’s also well-written and catchy as it gets.

Keep Holding On” is the next song on the album. It’s heartfelt and personal. It’s also a slower song with piano as the main background instrument. Even though Ronnie can come off as cocky at some times, this song shows just how grateful he is for his success.

Drifter” is the album’s final song. I truly love this song. I like the more nonconventional approach towards it. Another very personal song, it’s a good way to end the album.

Even though this album wasn’t what was expected from a lot of fans, it’s well put together and well-written. The music itself is great; the rapping may just take some of us a bit of time to get used to. Altogether, though, this is an album that’s likely to have at least one song on it that you’ll enjoy. So check it out!

There are girls out there that like the well-tanned Jersey Shore-kind of guy. But there are also some girls who'd rather see a man dressed in a gorgeous suit.

There's just something about a man wearing a suit. They look mysterious, casual, but sexy and sweet at the same time. Just yummy!


Here are actually some of my favourites:

 

 Chris Motionless

 

 Jack Barakat

Jared Leto

Robert Pattinson

Demi Lovato Signed A Suicide Contract And Sends Support To Paris Jackson

Reblogged from Amy Scarlata



Our girl, Demi has always been very open and honest about her internal struggles. The 20 year-old singer opened up to Rolling Stone about her early battle with depression: 

"The principal called my parents and made me sign this suicide contract saying that I would not kill myself [when I had suicidal thoughts at age seven]. They weren’t expecting that so young." 

She added, "My parents were like, 'You have two choices. We can either just shut it down and not talk about it, or you can tell people what’s up,'" Lovato told the magazine. "There was no hesitation, really. I opened up that gate."

Today the heart-attack singer sent her well wishes to Paris Jackson who attempted suicide yesterday saying: 

"Dear Paris Jackson, don't let bullies to let you down, we believe in you!! Stay strong, Please."

:'( We hope Paris is doing well -- and seriously guys if you or someone you know needs help, please call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). ♥

Motionless In White's New Video 'America' Is Finally Here

rockmichelle
rockmichelle Jun 04, 2013

After waiting patiently for Motionless In White's new video, it's finally there!

Once again, the guys from MIW have slammed the truth right into our faces with their new music video 'America'. As we already know, these guys never release a video or song that doesn't have a meaning behind it.

As we watch the video run, you'll see people from an other bands aswell. In case you don't know who I'm talking about, I'll just spit it out for you: Shawn 'Clown' Crahan from Slipknot and Ashley Costello from News Years Day. Not only is mr. Clown the crazy ringmaster in the video, he's also the director of this masterpiece.

But the release of 'America' didn't went as smoothly as the band intended it to be. They were actually dissapointed that it wasn't avaible in all countries right away. But after a while of figuring things out, ALL the fans from all the countries were able to view this video.

Like I said in the beginning of this blog, MIW never releases a video or song without a meaning in it. So of course, 'America' has one as well. And it is to our lovely mr. Chriss 'Motionless' Cerulli to explain the meaning to us. 

Chris Motionless (taken from Facebook):

"The video coupled with lyrics to the song America are about nothing more than the cold hard truth. Every image and character presented in this video were crafted by clown and myself down to the finest of details to portray a metaphorical visual of all the messages the lyrics convey. The strung out popstar/actress, the corrupt, oil profit hungry politician, the glutton representing the fast food industry, the pedophile priest, the temptress women and so on. All characters clearly found within the lyrics. I've forever been a fan of the saying "art imitates life" and that was the main inspiration behind the concept. Working with clown has been a highlight of both of my life and career. Brilliant and maniacal is his mind and I cannot imagine having brought my concept to anyone else to properly accomplish my vision. Truly a pleasure.

Motionless has never been a band to release a video that has been without our efforts to either attempt to open people's eyes, change the way they perceive day to day life occurrences or to inspire someone to look past the obstacles in their way and conquer their hesitations to truly be happy with themselves. With that being said, this video highly focuses on realizing the truth of your surroundings. To understand that the world is totally
fucked and although its not going to change any time soon, you can take solace in know that your fucked up life is just one of a incredibly vast amount and there's plenty of humor to be found when you allow yourself to accept everything and just be happy being you. Just one of the free, the sick and the depraved. "

Well said, Chris. :)

As for myself, I find the video really awesome and down-to-the-point. They really show us the dark side of Hollywood. And not in the 'politically correct' way, but with the full blown, cold, hard words that alot of us alway seem to ignore. Or seem to try to  cover up.

I really like to know your opinion about the 'America' video. And you should watch. 'Cause it's a kick ass, straight up video.

It's all about prom!

rockmichelle Apr 22, 2013

So, with my own prom coming up I've been so excited about everything can contains prom. Clothing, the music, the vehicles. Especially the clothing. There are alot of diffrent ways to dress yourelf as a young lady going to her prom and still be standing out. So this blog (and possibly a gallery) will not be about the prom dress you usually see, but it will be about the prom dress that's crazy andd not something that you see every prom.

Prom used to be the first grown up social event for teenagers to be held after dark. It was similiar to cummunion or a wedding, for it being a new stage in a teenager's life. Some may even believe that prom used to be an announcement for a engagement.

I'm really excited for my own prom, but also a little bit scared. So I wanna know YOUR prom stories. Tell me about them in the comment section. :)

Click here to see the gallery. It will be updated.
