Do you think Jon Walker joining the band made a difference in the sound of the two albums?

Spencer Smith: I do. On the first album it was mostly Ryan and Brendon and me, with Ryan writing most of the lyrics. With Jon, it was nice having everyone feel like we were on the same page. We all wrote as a band and lyrically, it was a little more spread out. It made it more fun for everyone. In the studio as well, everyone was more involved.

I ♥ ALL SPENCER SMITHS.

How fitting that on a day full of amazing, awesome, historic things, I have the worst day ever. Things went into meltdown mode at work even before eight o'clock this morning. I literally sat at my desk and streamed the inauguration on CNN.com and tried not to completely lose my shit. It is the most unwelcome feeling to realize you're going to have to be doing a fired co-worker's job for the next several weeks on TOP of your own, especially when said co-worker apparently did nothing for the past month. Shoot me now.

But in happier news, I am infinitely charmed by Pete blogging adorkably and Patrick blogging eloquently about the same damn thing, i.e. our new President. Bless you both, boys. ♥

Oh, and p.s., Brendon and Spencer are married. :)

Thank you to everyone who expressed their good thoughts about my dad. I've been laying low for a while and immersing myself in things that make me happy, like fic about puppies and FOB songs and Starbucks Christmas blend. My dad goes in for chemo tomorrow, and thankfully it's only going to be a one day thing instead of five.

Speaking of FOB songs, I have developed a disturbing habit of doing interpretive dance to Cooperstown in my car. God help me if someone takes a moment to watch, because my interpretation of crickets that would convince me to call it a night is kind of epic. Also, as I told [livejournal.com profile] airgiodslv, my favorite artistic moment of FAD right now is the very end of (Coffee's for Closers), with the extended bass line holding through the classical strings. For me, it represents perfectly the hopeful yet pessimistic tone of the entire song, and it gives me chills every time I listen. Lyrically, I am in love with

preach electric to a microphone stand

I am the LAST person on earth to contemplate tattoos of lyrics, but that right there...yeah. You done good, Pete. You and your stupid musical genius boyfriend of my heart.

Jon Walker continues to be my favorite of favorites. He went sweater shopping yesterday. Just. What. Is fandom turning into an equivalent of that new Adam Sandler movie, but instead of telling stories we just write stuff that magically comes into being? Dear universe, [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane and I would like for Brendon to teach Marley how to skateboard, kthx. *waits*

Off to write more fic about buying puppies. This is more productive than wrapping presents or doing laundry, yes?

P.S. I love all Spencers ever. ♥

Will be posting fic here soon, but first, I'd like to talk about how bandom is READING MY MIND.

There's a new Q&A video up on the Northern Downpour boards with Jon and Brendon, and someone asked them who their favorite Ninja Turtles are. No joke, I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT DISCUSSING THIS VERY IMPORTANT TOPIC IN THE PAST.
Jon: I feel the Ninja Turtles are very relatable to us as a band. There's four of us and we all have our different qualities, and we kind of all come together as a team to fight crime. So my favorite Ninja Turtle I'd have to say is Michelangelo, although in the band I'd probably say I'm more like Raphael.

Brendon: I'm probably more like Michelangelo. Just cowabunga all the time.

Jon: And I don't mind a good time! I just like to get enough sleep.

If I were to write them as Ninja Turtles, THIS WOULD BE MY CASTING. WELL DONE, BOYS. Spencer is the perfect Donatello, btw.

SOMEONE WRITE IN ASKING THEIR FAVORITE CARE BEAR COUSIN AND I CAN DIE HAPPY.

Jesus fucking Christ, THIS BAND.
The most popular items at your merch booth seem to be a t-shirt and bag that say “Reinvent Love,” which is such a strong, inclusive message. Tell me about how that became the band slogan.

[Spencer]: It started out as a lyric in “Mad as Rabbits.” It was the last song we were recording for the album, and as we figured out how to fit it into the end of the song, it took on some more anthem-style cheer. As we went on tour, me and Ryan [Ross, Panic’s guitarist] talked about making a “Reinvent Love” shirt. At first it was just going to be on the Fueled By Ramen web store, just a limited edition thing because it didn’t have our band name on the front, and we didn’t know how many people would want to wear that. It ended up being a lot more popular than we thought it would. We were ending all of the concerts with that song, so that was the last thing that people were hearing. We wouldn’t want to be a part of anything that wasn’t that kind of that message. If there’s going to be some saying associated with our band, that’s a pretty good one. It goes along with everything we want to represent and the way that we feel.

♥;_______;♥

I don't know what to do with this band anymore.

P.S. Fifty million points to anyone who writes me stories of Spencer babbling his stoner monologue of paranoia and Jon being all "...dude, just look at the flowers and chill." STONED!THINKY!SPENCER FTW, 'S ALL I'M SAYING.

And then there's Gerard writing Tom Sawyer pornfiction and MY BRAIN HAS OFFICIALLY DIED FROM BANDOM, GOOD NIGHT.

*CHINHANDS*

I came home from my mother's this afternoon to find my Panic book/DVD waiting for me in my mailbox. Ahaha, SORRY CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, YOU WILL WAIT FOR STUPID BOY FACES.

I haven't read my flist for four days, so I'm sure all of you have babbled about this, but I think one of my favorite things so far (one of 145065 things) is Mini!Ryan judging Ryan's wardrobe choices in the TGG behind-the-scenes. I literally LOL'd for a good five minutes, and then watched it again.

BRENDON HAD A GOLDFISH FOR SEVEN YEARS. I'm pretty sure Rachel has already written this somewhere.

I'm THISCLOSE to putting my Hey Moon sticker on JWalk the Escape's bumper.

Also, you get three guesses as to my favorite Shane Polaroid. Aaaaaaand, go.

For the record? They are my favorites. For-ev-er. ♥
foxxcub: (ridiculously tiny dudes)
OMG I should not even be posting this because I am SO BEHIND on comments, but I have to bring your attention to this thread, where [livejournal.com profile] ignipes and I started talking about Phil, the orphaned, homeless, TELEPATHIC sparkly purple unicorn that comes to live on Panic's bus. And now I want thousands upon thousands of words about Phil the Unicorn HELPING THEM REINVENT LOVE AND SHIT. ***______***

MS Paint FTW.

And I also want to add that the trailer for the new Star Trek movie FREAKS ME OUT. You don't understand, okay, I watched old Star Trek with my mom as a little kid all the time, and suddenly they're, like, MY AGE? It's just weeeeird. But, I will say that first words out of my mouth to Mr. Foxx after the trailer finished was, "Oh my god, there is going to be SO MUCH SLASH ON THE INTERNETS."

His response? "IKR? It's like a Vulcan gay porno or something."



P.S. Thank you so much to everyone who sent good wishes for my dad. ♥

This got WAY LONG, SORRY.

The story you are about to read is about actual people and contains the following:

*ridiculous, rambling accounts of m&g shenanigans
*near death experiences
*non-dial-up friendly pictures, because I'm a whore and refuse to size them down
*obscene amounts of Jon Walker
*my face

I was hit in the face with love )

foxxcub: (roofies by beingothrwrdly)
If you got a new cat or dog tomorrow, what would you name it?

Jon: Tax evasion.
Spencer: Taxidermy.

What is each guy's most embarrassing moment on stage?

Brendon: I was stripped naked on the second tour we ever did by Fall Out Boy and their crew. It got down to the wire but my modesty was spared. I guess we were being hazed; it was an act of assholery.
Spencer: I guess it was because we were on tour and swimming in a sea of sexual retardedness.
Ryan: I don't know. I feel I keep it pretty real on stage.
Brendon: Print that.

And of course...

Where do you see yourselves, personally and musically, in five to ten years?

Brendon: In five years, I see myself doing a five-to-10 stretch; in ten years I see myself clean, married, and out.
All: Out?
Brendon: Oh, oh no; I mean married to my husband of course. No, I mean out of jail, on parole.
Ryan: A citizen again.

Moar here.

*handshandshands*

In other news, I had an anxiety attack today when I thought about going to the m&g in Chicago. /o\
foxxcub: (my life is made by mediocrechick)
[livejournal.com profile] theaerosolkid IS MY FAVORITE EVER. FLOWERS. FLOWERS EVERYWHERE. *monkey flaps*

Some highlights of absolute delight that I've seen:

Ryan had WHITE WINE before and after "Camisado". as;fjsdd

Jon declared this tour THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDON TOUR 2008.

Jon was presented with a pearl necklace on stage.

SPENCER SMITH CLAPPING ALONG TO "FRIENDS IN HOLY SPACES".

THE FLOWERS.

I have to go to a meeting right now, BUT IF THERE ARE OTHER HIGHLIGHTS, PLEASE DIRECT ME TO THEM. OMG, IS IT MAY YET?? ;__;

(P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAYNE AKA [livejournal.com profile] blondiusmaximus. ILU and look forward to seeing these dorkfaces with you in Boston!!)
foxxcub: (shenanigans are afoot by lovebashed)
I wish I got FUSE, ugh, STUPID CABLE. I need to have Jon and Spencer roof tiems, plz. ETA: It's already up!! This is only made worse by the fact that my deluxe edition of Pretty. Odd. is STILL not here yet. FBR, I AM GETTING IMPATIENT.

Some things you should partake of:

Manifesto by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes. LOLARIOUS IMPLIED GSF. That's pretty much all you need to know. \o/

In The Middle Of Summer (or, How Panic Wrote a Musical and (Maybe?) Didn’t Know It). Also hilarious.

Something I've been thinking about lately is how we interpret things in this fandom. Until last June, I'd never been heavily involved in an RPS fandom; I was used to working with a fictional media and drawing from subtexts within. But RPS is a whole other animal - it's both fantasy and reality mixed together until, most of the time, differentiating between the two becomes sort of impossible after awhile. For example: I only learned a few months ago that Pete calling Patrick "'Trick" is a fanon thing. There's no "canon" proof that Pete's ever called him by that nickname, but I'd read it so many times in fic that I simply assumed somewhere along the way he'd said it. We take bits and pieces of what we read and *think* we know about these guys and draw our own conclusions, whether they're right or wrong.

Everyone has their own opinions and favorites and way of interpreting pictures/videos/interviews, etc., and that's awesome, that's what makes fandom great. But in the end, it's all relative. Mr. Foxx STILL doesn't see how SGA is all about Sheppard and McKay's epic love for one another, no matter how many times he watches it. He also doesn't see how Panic are hopelessly gay for one another. Granted, he doesn't view the world with slash goggles like I do, but still. Relative. I think it was [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o who said a few weeks ago that one person's OTP is another person's epic friendship.

In the spirit of celebrating differences of opinions, let's play a game called Interpret the Gay. Behind the cut are a series of photos, and for each photo, feel free to tell me what YOU think is going on. I'll play, too!

Okay, I've officially listened through Pretty. Odd. about five or six times. I figured it's time for incoherent babbling post!

you remind me of a few of my famous friends )

In conclusion, I AM SO VERY GLAD I PAID AN EXORBITANT AMOUNT OF MONEY TO SEE THESE STUPID DORKFACES LIVE THREE TIMES. ♥♥♥♥
foxxcub: (spencer fucking smith)
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:06:10 AM): oh god, can you imagine brendon trying to get spencer to do the booty dance?
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:06:55 AM): ACTUALLY IN THE COMMENTS OF A POST I talked about how Spencer had Adjustable Hips and that led to a particularly lovely thought about Brendon making Spencer grinnnnd
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:08:03 AM): or you know, jon coming up behind spencer and going up on tiptoes to grind up against him
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:08:20 AM): I just moaned a little, not gonna lie
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:08:29 AM): hand splayed over his hip
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:08:52 AM): why did that make me think that Brendon is perfectly sized for Jon to come up behind?
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:08:55 AM): OH GOD GSF
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:09:24 AM): SO LIKE NOW I WANT THEM ALL DRUNK AND HAVING A MASSIVE DRUNK GRINDING SESSION IN A CLUB
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:09:56 AM): AND RYAN IS KIND OF SELF-CONSCIOUS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, GANGLY AND NOT TOO HIP
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:10:02 AM): (in that way)
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:10:13 AM): ahahaha omgggggggg
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:10:24 AM): SO JON PUTS HIM IN THE MIDDLE
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:12:08 AM): oh GOD, so it started out sort of fooling around? but Brendon had turned around to face Spencer *see earlier grinding comment* and his ass/back is to Ryan, who's trying to figure out what to do with his hands/his hands in relation to Jon. DOES HE GO TO HIS HIPS? *hands flail*
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:13:14 AM): jon comes up behind ryan and presses up really close and grinds slowly against his ass, mouth up against his ear, whispering, "relax, ross," and then he reaches down and puts ryan's hands on brendon's hips.
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:13:41 AM): aaaaasdsaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadsadsa
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:14:28 AM): and then jon splays his own hands on ryan's hips and sort of moves him in time with the music, makes him move smoothly with his own grinds
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:15:32 AM): OH GOD IT'S LIKE A PANIC TRAIN
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:15:51 AM): COME ON RIDE THE TRAIN. RIDE IT. RIDE IT.
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:15:56 AM): asfk;sgkdfg
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:16:08 AM): sorry sorry ;_; it's just, it's so sexy
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:16:30 AM): WHY DO I HAVE R. KELLY IN MY HEAD NOW?
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:16:41 AM): oh my god oh my god I hate you so much right now

and then...

[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:18:29 AM): liiiiiike okay
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:18:33 AM): which is hotter:
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:18:44 AM): spencer dominating jon? or brendon dominating spencer?
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:18:59 AM): OR PATRICK DOMINATING EVERYONE?
[livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (11:19:05 AM): I VOTE THIRD
[livejournal.com profile] shleemeri (11:19:06 AM): oh my god oh my god oh my god

HERE ENDS TODAY'S MESSAGE. GO IN PEACE.
foxxcub: (yes he so is)
A few weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] bexless made a post about how her tinhat had morphed into a tinhelmet, not unlike this one.

Now I know exactly what she meant.

Oh. My. God. )

Q: If you weren't in a band, what would you do for a living?

Jon: I'd probably open up my own animal shelter.
audience (MYSELF INCLUDED): AWWWWWWWWWWWW.
Spencer: [grabs microphone from Jon] I'd open up my own orphange.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY. ♥___♥

P.S. DON'T DRIVE DRUNK. *dies forever*

P.P.S. PART 2!!
