I keep forgetting to post about this, for some reason, but I now have a new layout (...well, new version of my layout, anyway)!! Featuring, this time, a cap from My Chemical Romance's video for "The Ghost of You". But, at the same time, it should be noted, it's not really an MCR layout. It's supposed to, instead, encompass the love for the 1940's I've been feeling lately.

Originally, I wanted to have a Band of Brothers layout, and was working towards that, until last weekend, when I was home (and so, was watching copious amounts of TV), I saw the video for "Lovebug", by the Jonas Brothers (and, during my watching of Angels in the Outfield, which is not only a Disney movie [and a really great one, at that, which I totally had forgotten], but also stars Neal McDonough, also of BoB.) So then I said to myself, "Hey self, why don't you make a Lovebug layout, instead??" So I tried that, buuuut it kind of failed (ask [livejournal.com profile] boheme06, if you want - I spent a looooot of time whining to her about this, lulz).
Anyway, so then I realized that the "The Ghost of You" video ALSO takes place in the same period, and, yeah, it is also something I love, and so I gave it a go. ET VOILA!!

I'm kind of proud of the finished product, because it represents all of these attempts, at once. See, it's from the "The Ghost of You" video, obviously, but it also has the same immediate themes of the "Lovebug" video - the couple happy and dancing together, until the guy has to go off and fight in World War II. And, this specific guy is, apparently, in the 101st, which, guess what, so were the guys of Band of Brothers!! SEE HOW CRAFTY I AM.

Anyway, so yeah: [livejournal.com profile] splits_thesky

Oh, also, new default icon! From, after much deliberation of this same sort (only with a different conclusion!), Band of Brothers.

....but we're not going to talk about that (ohgodohgodohgod)!!

Instead, here are some other less horrible things:

1. Since I'm at home this weekend, I was able to find and upload pictures of my apartment for y'all! )

2. It is October! Which means, among other things, that it is almost time for Halloween. Which, I mean, isn't even my favorite holiday or anything, but still has me SUPER EXCITED. Candy! Costumes! More candy! WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE.

3. Anyway, so, while I'm actually not anywhere near ready for Halloween (so far, no concrete plans, or costume)...my layout is?? I mean, again, it's pretty much the same as it was, but - differently themed?? Sure. So, my layout, v. HALLOWEEN, featuring everyone's (EVERYONE'S.) good friend Frank Iero!! YAAAAAYYYYYYY

...I - guess that's it?? I feel like I had more to say, but I have no idea what it would be, now. I mean, I have a buttload of work (hence why I'm home for the weekend), and I'm hungry and don't actually know why I'm still up, but none of that is particularly awesome, so we'll leave that all out. ...SO.
splits_thesky: (bandom: panic!: whaddup homeslice)
...AKA here is a list, because I'm too lazy to write a real entry:

1. Panic! at the Disco. OKAY NO LOOK, I loved them before, but now I kind of LOVE love them. And I don't even have a good reason! I haven't even finished watching the DVD (by which I mean, I've seen about 10 minutes of it so far), but there are already a million and one things I love about it. The way Brendon immediately goes, "FIRST SHOWER!!11!11!!!", and everyone else is just all, "....."!! The way Ryan laughs at something Bden says at that one point! SpencerSmith!! Ryan never sweats!! Jon Walker!! "I'm gonna get naked, is that cool?"!! The little high-fives they all do!! GOD, I COULD GO ON FOREVER. And just off of this little bit!! UGH, BOYS.
Also this morning, when I was kind of half asleep and half awake, I had this sort of dream(/daydream??) in which Brendon and I switched bodies. It wasn't as much fun as you'd think it might be, though, I was like, "I HAVE TO STUDY FOR FINALS!!!11!! AND I CAN'T SING!!!1!!!", and there was a lot of flailing. At the end, there was a bit where he and I (is that even proper grammar?? idk.) hung out together and giggled and ate marshmallows/threw them at each other, though, that was nice. ...Yeah.

2. Pete/Mikey! idek, guys, I just have become very...enraptured by their ~*~EPIC TALE OF LOVE AND LOSS~*~ lately. I even have an icon now, after swearing to myself I'd never have an icon of Pete Wentz's face!! And, like, a couple of days ago I got really mad at Pete for some dumb reason and pointedly skipped all the Fall Out Boy songs that came up on my iPod's shuffle ("UGH PETE, I HAVE NO INTEREST IN YOUR EMO TODAY), but I HAD to stop and listen to "Bang the Doldrums" (...unless it's about your sekrit love affair with Mikes, omg"). And, guys, this picture hurts my heart. UGH, WHAT THE HELL.

3. This song. I was flipping channels today, and caught about 5 seconds of it on a commercial, thought, "hey, that sounds vaguely cool", googled and downloaded it, and now have been listening to it ALL DAY. It's so bouncy! I feel like if it were a picture (shut up), it would be this one (AND YES, I KNOW THAT'S ACTUALLY MICHELLE BRANCH, LEAVE ME ALONE). I made a playlist of stuff to listen to while typing up this entry, and I just stuck this song in multiple times, so I could listen to it over and over.


...That's it, I think. And now, if you will excuse me, I have to go catch up on Psych so [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 doesn't punch me in the face.

ETA: Oh wait, there was a meme I was supposed to do, too. OH WELL, expect it next entry!! :D
splits_thesky: (bandom: mcr: not just a devil state)
Okay, thing the first: I am completely, 500%, in love with Gerard Way.
I mean, I always really liked him, but Frankie was always my favorite MCR boy. AND THEN. I don't even know what HAPPENED, but it's safe to say I have now totally transitioned from being vaguely endeared to Gerard to being totally head-over-heels.
I am so sunk.

Thing the second!
Why is there not (or if there is, WHERE THE FUCK IS IT) P!atD fic in which Ryan has had *~*feelings*~* for Spencer for foreeeeeeeever, but always kept trying to deny them, because it's Spencer, his best friend, and all. Only one day Ryan catches (well, like, he sees them somehow, they may or may not know he's there) Spencer *~*gettin' it on*~* with...someone, I don't really know who yet, and it's, like, the hottest thing Ryan's ever seen. And he feels like he should be embarrassed and guilty about it, but he's not, he just can't stop thinking about the sharp line of Spencer's collarbone against the smooth curve of his neck, and Spencer's fingers splayed gracefully, but with surprising strength against a hip, and Spencer's eyes and Spencer's mouth and...
...huh?? Oh yeah, okay, and then some other stuff happens, idk, I haven't really thought that far ahead yet. Uh.

HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN, GUYS!!!! *passes out candy corn*

I still have no idea what I'm doing tonight, but I at least have a costume (I was trying to be Batgirl, but not everything I needed came together in time, so instead I'm Panic!ing it up), so that's something.

And, as we do (haha, so does two years of this meme make it a tradition??):

Also, Happy Happy Birthday, Frank Iero!! You are tiny and adorable, and I love you kind of a lot. And obviously you and your band are on my mind a lot, because I had a dream about you guys last night.

No, I did! See, it was this whole thing - Mikey was just about to graduate from high school, and Ray and Bob played college football, and Gerard was on the staff of his school's newspaper, and Frank...well, I don't know what Frank did, but he was Mikey's boyfriend (I KNOW, I KNOW). I was Mikey's friend, only he got really mad at me because I kept calling him "Mikeyway" (there was a good while where I was just wandering around going, "But that's his NAME!!! What else am I SUPPOSED to call him????"), and left in a huff to find Frankie.
And then there was this thing, where apparently everyone has Chuck Taylors, right, and when you graduate, you're supposed to give them to the person who means the most to you, or something, I DON'T KNOW. So anyway, at one point Frankie's like, "You still haven't given me your shoes, you know", and then there's a pause, in which Mikey looks at Frank, down at his feet, up at Frank again, and then reports, "...they're still on my feet." And then they both collapsed into giggles.
...Meanwhile, I was off running a summer camp with Pete Wentz (and I clearly remember thinking, "oh my god, we are totally the most bad-ass people here").
splits_thesky: (bandom: gabilliam)
...AKA, it's not spamming if I told you it was coming (although, technically, this post was supposed to be up 6 hours ago. WOOPZ.)!!

So, okay, things:

1. [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and I have decided that Pete Wentz is the Chip Skylark we've always wanted!! I mean, THINK ABOUT IT. He has shiny teeth! People commonly think he's a jerk, until they get to know him! He's delicious! (Also, Lia, LOOK, OMGGGGG)
I was thinking maybe this makes Patrick Timmy (he's GOT to have at least one pink hat, come on. Plus, doesn't Chip call Timmy "little dude", or something??), but then I had the urge to cast everyone else, got confused, and stopped.

2. GUYS (which I totally just typoed with a 'z' at the end, hah). Why does no one else find it as hilarious as I do that Ryan Ross's puppy is named Hobo? Like someone here said, it's hobo and Hobo!! HAHAHA, OH RYAN ROSS. ♥♥


4. Okay, so, HALP, PLZ. My friend and I are going to see The Academy Is... and Cobra Starship on Friday, right, so I'm trying to make a list of stuff she needs to know before we go. So far, she knows that Gabe is a weirdo, and William's quite the looker, and a sweetheart (we "met" him on the Honda Civic Tour. We were lame and made shirts, but he said he liked them!). Oh, and she knows the music, of course.
But yeah, additionally, this is what I have so far... )

So, what's missing? If you have any more proof for these points, too, plz share!! I know everything's all unformatted and ugly, but I'm going to be emailing this to her, so it's going to have to do.

5. I'm sleeeeeeeeepy. *rubs eyes*
splits_thesky: (bandom: mcr: 100% frankie approved!)
Last night I had a really complicated dream, most of which I totally don't remember. What I do remember, though, is the part where I hugged Ray Toro and it was the BEST THING EVER. I mean, just - he was so TALL and STURDY and WARM, and I buried my face in his neck and didn't let go for a good 5 minutes. Like I said, I hardly even remember the rest of this dream, but I clearly remember, at that point, thinking, "OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE".

Also, can we discuss this picture?? Like, HOW DOES THAT EVEN WORK. [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and I were trying to figure it out, and we just ended up going, "...WHAT". So help, flist!

ETA: ALSO, can we (in the 10 minutes I have left before I go to face my doom) discuss how AWESOME Maja Ivarsson is?? I mean, SERIOUSLY, she OWNS. Like, look at this and just TRY to tell me those boys (and William, HAHAHA) aren't completely her bitches. JUST TRY!!
splits_thesky: (Default)
homg, happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] killmotion!! Even though you are no longer 16 going on 17, you can be innocent as a rose if you WANT. DON'T LET THE SOUND OF MUSIC DICTATE YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!


Okay, so GUYS. Where is the Panic! fic where Jon loses his iPod and so "borrows" Brendon's for a little while (or, like, as long as he can before Bden realizes it's missing and starts bothering everyone about it), and he has it on shuffle, and "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid starts up (this is in no way influenced by the music on my iPod!! I SWEAR, GUYS.), and Jon chuckles and goes to skip it, but his finger just sort of hovers over the button and he kind of rolls his eyes at himself, and is like, I suppose I can listen to this, I mean, it's not that bad of a song, really, and oh, Spencer's sitting across from him or near him or something, did I mention that, and so anyway, while he's listening to the song, Jon keeps looking over at Spencer and thinking about how much he looooooooooves him and all (YOU KNOW IT), but ultimately he's like, this is stupid, and shakes it off and goes back to listening to Brendon's iPod until Brendon figures out that he has it and tackles him and they wrestle and end up in a giggling heap on the floor, because I enjoy that sort of thing, if you couldn't tell, but then later, "Kiss the Girl" keeps playing in Jon's head whenever he looks at Spencer, and some slightly humorous, slightly awkward events that I haven't totally thought out yet occur because of this, but eventually somehow they end up kissing, but then Jon sort of pulls away, and says, I can't believe my impetus to do this was a fucking crab, and Spencer's like, ......, and then Jon's like, uh, what, I didn't say anything, let's keep kissing, and then they do and it is wonderful, and then maybe eventually Spencer finds out the whole story, and laughs and laughs and laughs, and Jon says, shut up, you love me, and Spencer says, yeah, yeah I do, and then there is more kissing because I love it.
...uh. So yeah guys, WHERE IS IT????? Also, holy fucking run-on, Batman!

As long as I'm being completely self indulgent, what I really want (but MCR style, this time!!) is for Gerard to have a baby girl and for Frank to have a little boy, and then for these kids to, eventually, grow up and fall in love and get married. COME ON GUYS, TELL ME I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS.
splits_thesky: (bandom: panic!: srs musician right here)

1. My ringtone (for my new cell phone!! YAAAAAY) is now Cobra Starship's "The Ballad of Big Poppa and Diamond Girl", because it is only my favorite Cobra Starship song EVER. And the ringtone for my voicemail is "The Take Over, The Break's Over", because come on, FALL OUT BOY.

2. The VMAs, apparently, although I failed and did not watch them. But still!

3. SPENCER SMITH'S STUPID - EVERYTHING. I mean this in the same vein as "Brendon Urie's stupid FACE" or "UGH JONWALKER STOP BEING SO ADORABLE", fyi. Just, you guys, SPENCER. I have no idea how this happened, either, I was all content to flail over JWalk, and now - just - SPENCER. Spencer and his stupid hair and his stupid smile and his stupid hips and his stupid beard and his stupid red underwear and his stupid drumming that totally motivated me to start teaching myself to play the drums again and his stupid face in my icon that I totally copied and took a picture of to put as a background for my phone. Yeah.


5. I totally had to watch this twice to actually understand what Spencer was saying, because I just kept zoning out and staring at Jon and his dumb vegetables. HOW SO CUTE, JWALK????


7. There is a REASON he's my favorite member of FOB, y'all.


9. The making of "I'm Not Okay"!! part 1, part 2, part 3. I MEAN, REALLY. <3333333


11. "IT'S FOR THE HAMSTER THAT I'M GONNA GET!!!" And shenanigans, you guys!! SHENANIGANS.

I love how this just degenerated into a mess of keyboard smashing and glee. But, I MEAN. HOW SO PRECIOUS, BOYS????????
