Well I'm wide awake (for once) and a little bit lost with what to do right now, so I guess I'll just write some kind of introduction or something. I don't know I just wanna put something in the entry section I guess.
So... I'm reasonfalling I guess and well I've been a lurker around here for like, ever, but I was too lazy to join. Ha, but well, now I guess I thought, eh why not? And I'm finally getting up the courage to try my hand at band fanfics. I've always written stuff for anime and shit like that, but now, not so much since it's starting to bore me and bands are just so much more entertaining. Still, I'm nervous because, hey let's face it, I've never written about actual characters and I'm a bit paranoid that I'm going to like totally fuck up the personalities. I mean there are just SO MANY amazing authors out there!!! And I love you all and can't wait to finally tell you that. *silently scolds self for not doing this sooner* Hehe ^.^
So I'm a HUGE fan of Avenged Sevenfold, they're like no joke my reason to live. Without them I can promise I wouldn't be here... I'd be falling into some dark abyss somewhere between death and life. Breathing, but dead in the heart, or maybe just dead all together. Anyway, I love way too many bands to list, but I guess A7X will always be my favorite and have that special place in my heart. Seeing them live was a dream come true. I also love Eighteen Visions and yeah I'll admit I STILL cry over them at least once every other day. But I do love Burn Halo :) but still... oh and I love Papa Roach (if my icon hasn't already told you that much ^.^) which leads me to this...
Okay, I freakin love Papa Roach with a burning passion and have been a die hard fan since Infest, but I gotta tell ya... their new album is... well... different. I've read so many reviews that are crying over it because guess what peeps, they're mainstream now and so is their sound. It breaks my heart but at the same time I'm so proud of them it's killing me. The whole reason albums like Infest, lovehatetragedy, and some of Getting Away With Murder and The Paramour Sessions came out sounding the way they did with their deep, meaningful lyrics was because dearest Jacoby was feeding off his and his band mates emotions and what was going on in their lives at the time. But like Jacoby himself has said, his life is getting pretty good. He has a loving family and the alcohol abuse has gone way down for him, so the old fuel that wrote those deep lyrics has literally morphed into a more upbeat kind of thing. Which leaves me to wonder, why are all these so called "die hard fans" complaining? They should be proud at how far they've come. Sure they may be disappointed and may miss the old Papa Roach we all fell in love with, but we should all look toward the future and be glad that they're all finally happy! Or at least things in their lives are at least a bit better. So please don't hate Metamorphosis just because it's so different from what were used to... there is always the next album after all :) And with a band that changes every time we can always expect something new, whether it's good or bad. A7X changed drastically yet we all still followed them and probably always will (I mean honestly compare Lost to Second Heartbeat and just hear the difference :) ha I love them...), so why not follow Papa Roach and support them the same way. Bands change, embrace it, don't push it away. After all (and in risk of sounding cheesy, but I really just don't care at this point), we're all looking for a Lifeline and we've found it through music, because when everyone leaves, music will always be right beside you, no matter what.
Wow... I should totally post something like that on iTunes... maybe then those people will realize that just because it's not the same as what they've always done, it's still Papa Roach, whether you like it or not. Oh and if anyone reads this and gets offended, I am SO sorry. I don't mean to, I'm just expressing my opinion on the whole thing and if you don't agree, well that's okay with me. I mean we all have our opinions, it's what makes us well us. I just don't want anyone thinking that I'm trying to say that everyone else is wrong cause I'm not.
Well I've put off doing math homework long enough... and hey if I finish this maybe I'll post up a story or something ^.^ something to take my mind off life and all it's shit :) thanks for reading and what not! Love ya all!
