I'm pretty sure I mentioned last year that Rich reeeeally didn't want to move out of our old place at the end of his 12-month lease. And who can blame him? He's moved 6 times in the last 7 years (I've moved 5 in the last 7), but technically, we moved after 1 year and 3 months, so I guess it doesn't count?

Anyway, we're all moved out of the old place (where we shared a small 2-bedroom with a roommate) and into a small 1-bedroom! I've never gotten the chance to live alone (sadly, as it's something I wanted to do), but fortunately this is only a step removed from that. It's not the same as living alone, but it's definitely not the same as living with a roommate, even if you're pretty darn close with them.

I'm super excited for this new place as it's got tons of natural light-- something the old place didn't have. And not to mention, it's now HALF A BLOCK from the train I take to work every day. So I've cut what used to be a 12-minute walk to the train down to a 1-minute walk. It's pretty much the NYC-work-life equivalent of rolling out of bed and going to class in your pajamas. Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying Bushwick? It's pretty nice (as long as you look out for where you're stepping).

In other news, I randomly watched the new P!ATD video (This is Gospel: Piano Version) and then watched the regular version (after not having heard it since shortly after the album release) and... LOL apparently I'm TOTALLY IN THE MOOD FOR PATD RIGHT NOW. Who knew? Watching the video even made me want to read (and re-read) fic that I haven't been interested in for years now.

TBH I don't expect this feeling to last but it was nice to have it. I miss my stint in bandom; obviously online friends are too much fun for me to handle!

Watched the first minute of the BTS video for TIG which led me over to this other video by the same director, which I thoroughly enjoyed.



Last thing... NYR IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALLLLLS! I can't believe we fucking won against the Penguins in an AWAY game 7. It feels pretty great to be a Rangers fan right now!

Uhhh, seriously, I sound like Brendon (in that fic by LittleMousling where Ian teaches them how to talk dirty: Post-Modern Cyrano) where he sounds ridiculously uncool and utterly laughable every time he tries to say something hot. Which, btw, makes me crack the fuck up, it's so fucking hilarious.

But here I'm basically like, no one wants to hear me talk, let me rush to the end of every answer and trip over my own tongue while I'm at it. So yeah, I even forgot to mention that I'm pretty much "osaraba" everywhere? LJ, Dreamwidth, Tumblr, Twitter...

I swear I sound less like an idiot when there are no recording devices around. Those of you who've met me in person... well, nevermind.

voice post meme questions inside! )

So, here goes...

But hey look, this is what happened tonight (Patrick was actualfax this close. *_____* http://lockerz.com/s/156835692), and it was the best possible follow-up to fun times earlier today!

I took video of my two favorites, Everybody Wants Somebody and Run Dry (X Heart X Fingers), plus his impromptu cover of Steve Goodman's The City of New Orleans! I'm currently uploading them to my youtube and linking from my tumblr, so check back in a few hours!

After the show I actually got to ask him "...so what's next?" and he started answering like, this was the last stop on the tour, there's nothing else scheduled, etc., but I said, "no, no, I mean, what's your next style of music?" I had wanted to explain that I was referencing this interview he'd given where he implied he wanted to do all different styles -- the one where he says he did the R&B album first because doing it when you're older is kind of creepy -- but there was a long line and although Patrick would've stopped to chat with everyone, the security was rushing us all through pretty quickly. But then he went and tweeted this a little later and I can't help but think that it was in response to my question (though tbf probably other fans asked it too?). I'm going to just go on believing it was all me.

[livejournal.com profile] merelyn got a quick photo for me, though, and I'm really quite pleased at how it turned out! =DDD




Hey, did I ever post about the P!ATD M&G I got to go to at the Philly show? ALSKDJFALSJFLSAJFLSAJ I'll post about that next (even though it's been almost two weeks now).
osaraba: (p!atd bden yesssss)
A friend got a ticket and a +1 (me!) to the taping of Patrick Stump on the Mark Hoppus show on Fuse this morning! So I got to see him perform This City and Run Dry (X Heart X Fingers) live for the cameras. It airs on Friday 11/25 and I think you probably can't see me in the crowd (god, I really hope not) because I was sort of behind a taller girl, but you might catch a glimpse of me and my friend in the beginning when Mark Hoppus introduces the show/guest.

The interview portion was cool and pretty funny, and it was kind of awesome to see how these things are run, behind-the-scenes.

Aaaand I'll be at Webster Hall for his show tonight, which I'm suuuuper psyched about because he's playing at the Studio stage, not the main stage, so capacity is like, 300!!! TINY VENUES ARE THE BESTBESTBEST!

LOOK AT HIS ADORABLE GLASSES <333



I also got a pic with him on Katie's DSLR but ugh, my face looks horrible so it's just for me and my memories.
osaraba: (p!atd spencer dreamy)


Soooo, THAT happened.

The Halloween P!ATD show was fucking amazing, and I couldn't have seen the show or spent the day with a better bunch ([livejournal.com profile] sansets, [livejournal.com profile] bootson, [livejournal.com profile] coyotegestalt, an unexpected![livejournal.com profile] zeenell, and several others)! I was sad I wasn't able to con my way into M&G, but whatevs, I still got to see pantsless!Spencer, which btw I've decided is the best holiday ever.

Also, can I gush for a sec over Ian dressing up as Hit Girl?! Besides the whole crossdressing thing, which I like but isn't my particular kink, I know he did it because he's a huge. fucking. nerd. and thinks HG is badass and cool, not (only) because it'd be funny for him to wear a skirt. Let's count how many girls dress up as guys because they're badass characters-- oh wait, we can't because there are too many. I want to see more guys dressing up as awesome girl characters on Halloween. Because it's not far from something like that to girls just being legit cool without any sort of qualifiers.

It's not like I hadn't already been tipping over into having huge heart-eyes over Ian, but this pretty solidly cemented it.

Also, jesus fuck Ian-as-HG rocking out on his guitar is so fucking hot, I can't even! What is that even all about? HG is like, TEN YEARS OLD. IDEFK, maybe it's the wig. Seriously, I'd actually just love to see Ian-as-HG at every fucking Panic! show. Yes, along with Pantsless!Spencer and also Brendon with his Jesus wig because like I told twitter, somehow that made me feel like I was at a Real Rock Concertâ„¢ and it was kind of awesome.

Pstump is amazingly adorable, I don't think there are enough words to explain exactly how adorable he is. With his red suit and blinking red devil horns. It sort of made me want a sequel to Lenore's BeWentzed (Pete/Patrick), from Patrick's POV but some years down the road.

FANGIRL HOSTELS ARE THE BEST! I still can't thank [livejournal.com profile] sansets and her roomies enough for letting me crash on (one of) their couches. I hope I can return the favor someday!

BRENDON. AND PATRICK.

WHY ARE THEY SO CUUUUUUUUUUTE? AND DORKY? SO DORKY. UGH.

So, they announced yesterday that PStump will be one of the opening acts for Panic! on their fall tour. I'm definitely going to at least the Philly show; I'm considering the DC show if I can find anyone to put me up there. I'm excited because Patrick stump is adorable and I'm actually really excited to see him live, though you know I'm really wishing that Pete would be there too.

Still, I'm.... not sure how I feel about all of this, musically. PStump's solo music is reeeeeeeally Not My Thing. Neither is Fall Out Boy's... or The Black Cards', so really I've just screwed myself (or my ears) over by thinking that Pete and Patrick are the most adorable musicians I don't actually like.

I think I need to go to more metal concerts to make up for this extreme loss of hardcore cred, y/y/MFY?

Well, you know, when I get back to NYC.

OFF TO THE AIRPORT IN FIVE HOURS OMFG. I MAY BE BEGINNING TO FEEL LIKE I'M ABOUT TO GET ON A SCARY ROLLER COASTER RIDE.

Go vote in my poll. I NEED YOUR OPINION.
osaraba: (p!atd spencer headphones)
JUST caught up on fskip=180 and YAY I've got, like, three or four new Brendon/Spencer fics to read (also the next chapter in [livejournal.com profile] freece's Captive Prince) and am SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!! I've... sort of been flailing about and reading random Pete/Patrick fics, but I miss my daily dose of Spencer. I haven't quite made it over to read the latest round of BBB yet, though, so there's that waiting for me too.

To be fair, I've actually been away from the comp a lot in the last week or so. I now have less than a week left in NYC before going to Indonesia for six weeks, and I'm not freaking out or anything, but I'm sort of feeling like I'm going to miss ALL THE THINGS here while I'm away.

Also, the money situation really isn't the best, but whatever, I'm just going to have to sort of just plough through the next couple of months and hope the other side will be an improvement.

Going to see Warrior tonight. T-HARD, I STILL LOVE YOU. I'm so happy there's a preview showing tonight so I didn't have to go to the midnight showing on Thursday to see it before my flight to Indonesia leaves on Friday morning. THOUGH I WOULD HAVE DONE IT. FOR TOM.


Aaaaaand I'm going to leave you with this. Because while I'm not a huge Patrick Stump fan, HIS FACE HERE IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING AND I CAN'T STOP WATCHING IT. If I have to suffer, you do too. <3333

IT FIGURES MY DRUNK POSTING WOULD BE ABOUT PETE WENTZ. I DON'T EVEN LIKE HIS MUSIC. FALL OUT BOY SUCKS. THE BLACK CARDS ISN'T ACTUALLY BETTER, THOUGHT THEY ARE MILDLY TOLERABLE IN THE RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCES. (THOSE BEING "DRUNK" AND "DANCING AT A CLUB".)

BUT I SAW HIM TONIGHT AT CRIMSON IN MANHATTAN AND LOLLLLLZZZZZZZZ, HE'S JUST TOO ADORABLE FOR WORDS. I CAN'T ACTUALLY NOT LIKE HIM. BECAUSE HE'S, LIKE, PETE WENTZ -- THE DEVIL INCARNATE -- AND I'VE ALWAYS HAD A WEAKNESS FOR THE DEVIL.

Sorry for so much CAPSLOCK.
