Here're some rips of Patrick singing at his old high school. Check out icecreamhdaches for some awesome video, or just search YouTube with 'Patrick Stump GBS.'

I merged two clips to get a full version of Stand By Me, and, well, you can definitely tell. The audio on Cupid's Chokehold is pretty bad, too.

(I'd check out this entry, too, it has some great new canon.)

Ryan Ross was on Mark Ronson's East Village Radio show tonight with Alex Greenwald, and there was a short pseudo-interview and they played Change and another new song called The Other Girl. I think I'm really going to love this album <3<3<3

This past weekend I took the bus down to London and saw Fall Out Boy at the O2 arena (as well as doing my tourist thing).

EDIT: I forgot to show off the shirt I made! I designed it, cut the stencil out of freezer paper, and used spray-on fabric paint and bleach with the stencil. The original design has a lot more text and looks like a movie poster--beneath 'America's Suitehearts' I had 'DOING LINES OF DUST AND SWEAT JUST TO FEEL LIKE YOU!' in smaller text, and under 'BOYCOTT LOVE' I had 'CHANGE WILL COME/03.06.09' in smaller text. At the bottom was 'Mr. Sandman*H. Shoe Crab*Mr. Benzedrine*Donnie the Catcher' in the style of movie poster acting credits, with the first names stacked above the surnames. Alas, it was not to be--I didn't have the time, and I thought the text was too small to stencil well, anyway.

Here's the deal: I hate the so-called official lyrics on FOE. They're clearly inaccurate in places, and, as someone who pays attention to lyrics, it really bothers me that they're being presented as the Gods-honest truth.

When my roommate, who is not a Fall Out Boy fan, or even really a fan of newer mainstream bands at all, told me that she had bought FAD after hearing it and liking it before the semester ended, I wanted her to have a lyrics booklet which I approved. Egotistical, I know. I made her a (pretty sweet, if I say so myself) version that combined the FOE lyrics, where I thought they were accurate, with my own interpretation, both when they were obviously wrong (e.g., the ____ in w.a.m.s) and when I thought my version was more correct.

Now, I can't promise these are 100% perfect. But they're sure as hell better than the FOE version, even if that's the one that enjoys official status.

Fair warning: my choices of where to break lines and of punctuation at the ends of lines are largely arbitrary and follow no set rules.

Lyrics )

[livejournal.com profile] tipsofpencils and [livejournal.com profile] suiteheart helped when I was originally figuring out the lyrics to Headfirst Slide, and [livejournal.com profile] alternatending helped with Pavlove.

EDIT: changed all the "son"s in West Coast Smoker to "sun" based off of this twitter exchange:
@ztnewetep question: what does the line "knock once for the father,twice for the son,three times for the holy ghost" means? (link)
@DiyanaRazinah its "the sun". i dunno sometimes when you overmedicate you find some closeness to something bigger than you...(link)
@DiyanaRazinah ..but the truth is the closeness is false. its faux pa(u)s(e)e. its time to hit the reset button and start the gameover.edit (link)

I've got most of the lyrics for Pavlove figured out.

oh procrastination )

Please don't distribute anywhere else without credit, and don't submit to lyrics sites. Thanks!

I hadn't heard anything by Sing It Loud or Hit the Lights prior to the show, and had heard one Forever The Sickest Kids song in a Hot Topic. Add to that the intensity of the pit and all those sets were kind of a blur. The Sing It Loud guys were very energetic--actually, all of them were very energetic. I'm going to try to check them out.

This was my first pit experience, and wow. That shit gets crazy. There must have been a lot of people there for the openers, though, because it got a lot calmer before Cobra. It was calmer--in a sane way, not in a no-one-is-having-fun way--even during their set. I started the evening in the fourth row and got pushed back a little, but was in the third row for the Cobras.

They were amazing. Gabe was hilarious/sexy, Vicky-T was super sexy, and Ryland was awesome. Apparently the singer for SIL used to be their merch guy. He came out to sing Beckett's part on Snakes On A Plane. They shortened some songs and the set list, and didn't do an encore, so I hope Gabe's doing ok and not overworking his voice.

Fall Out Boy released another song from Folie a Deux. As usual, Patrick is sometimes indecipherable.

My lyric guesses are behind the cut.

Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet )

This is the longest song title from the album, but damn is it long.

Please don't submit all or part of my work to any lyrics sites, or distribute it in general without credit (in this case, a link back to my journal). Thanks!

an old buzznet entry has the lines:
surfed brainwaves flick back and forth like old headlights,
sniffing model glue again.
a head like a steel trap.

It's that time again! I transcribed Pete and Patrick's conversation from the new podcast. The podcast is great, and it has snippets of songs, so check it out if you can.


Yeah, this is kind of like a fantasy coming together, we’re doing this podcast in the nude. )

Hey, here's my super-late concert report! I went to the 8/19 Dance Across the Country show at the Greene Street Club in Greensboro, NC. The Hush Sound headlined, preceded by The Cab, Steel Train, and The Morning Light. warning, under-the-cut is very media heavy )

Someone ([livejournal.com profile] naotalba) posted a link to what's probably the acoustic one-take of growing up on cfobmania. I don't have confirmation from them that it's for-sure the version distributed by freshonlybakery, but it's acoustic and it's growing up, so. They said Pete directed them to it (at the video shoot?).

here ya'll are. I was able to right click and save.

[livejournal.com profile] icecreamhdaches has the akon cover uploaded, as well.

Hey! I've transcribed the article from the new issue of Rock Sound. Scans can be found at [livejournal.com profile] icecreamhdaches. I've left their grammar and spelling unchanged.

At the moment I get furious about doing anything other than working here )
