It is All Hallows Eve, everyone! I've never understood that, its not the "eve" of anything except the first of November. Which, last time I checked, was nothing important. An interesting fact is the reason people originally dressed up and gave out things were to hide from the dead, and gave out treats as a peace offering. Over the centuries, the tradition kept on, but altered a bit. People slowly began realizing children were not small adults, and deserved to just have fun every once and a while, and started letting them "Trick or treat".
Now, its a fun holiday, but originally it wasn't even truely a "holiday". Holidays are good, Halloween was a fearful day. People were scared that they'd be haunted by spirits and demons.
Really, if you want to think about it now, "trick or treating", isn't just for kids. Yes, this is me defending myself a little seeing as I am going out tonight, all decked out, and going trick or treating. None of the kids I am going with are under the age of 13. We range from thirteen to eighteen, and you know what? I don't care! Free candy is free candy, and hell for all those people know, we could all be collecting candy as an offering for the spirits! Not just to eat, which is what we're doing, but some people might still be like that.
I do believe in spirits, and ghosts, but I do not believe in demons. Why? I don't have a clue, I just don't believe in them. What people also don't realize is Halloween also a pagan holiday, called Samhain. Its basically their Christmas, on the relgious aspect. They have big festivals, and some take that time to dub in new "witches".
So remember everyone, while you're out with your friends or sitting at home passing out candy and watching some scary movie, that Halloween is not just a day for free candy. It can be, but its not always. There are some people who are serious about this holiday, and there are some that are just in it for the sugar. I personally, am just in it to have an excuse to dress up, get a ton of candy for me to munch on for a while, and hang out with friends.
This being said, all I am being for Halloween is a vampire/ gothic person/ Andy Biersack. Yes, I just said Andy Biersack. I was trying to dress like Andy, while having Ashley Purdy's hair style, as I already have that basically. Its not working too well, Black Veil Brides makeup is kinda hard for me. So, I'll be dressed like myself, only the self I am too lazy to do half the time.
I love the emo/ gothic style, but most of the time I am too lazy to put on the outfit, get my hair perfect, and do my makeup. I'm not a girly girl for the most part, and all of that feels too time consuming for me! I've been told though, that it works very well for me.
What are you guys being for Halloween, as well as what are you doing?
Happy Halloween to all! I can't believe it'll be November tomorrow! Where the hell did the year go?
You're on stage every night, and moving around a lot -you'd think you'd be coordinated enough not to break yourself. For years, I have heard of musicians somehow managing to hurt themselves pretty badly. I get that some of the things you do on stage are not normal for humans, but after doing it a few times, you'd think you'd get the hang of it!
I first started hearing of klutzy celebrities when I was thirteen, when I kept seeing Joe Jonas fall off the stage, trip, and fall on the stage during the show. Its contiuned with other stars, generally falling off the stage, or moving wrong.
Facebook is buzzing with talk about the interview Bryan Stars uploaded yesterday with Falling In Reverse's singer, Ronnie Radke. The link got shared several times, and several fan pages were chatting about it. I watched the interview, and was impressed by Ronnie.
Everyone knows that he was in prison until last December, and was previously addicted to drugs. He's clean now, 100%, and is a changed man. I found myself wanting to watch this interview for several reasons. Not only did I know just how badly Bryan Stars wanted to do the interview, but I wanted to see how Ronnie would act. Bryan isn't like most interviewers, he let's the stars feel comfortable and be totally themselves. I felt that'd be a good thing for Ronnie. As far as I'm aware, he hasn't done very many interviews this year, just a small handful.
As I watched the interview, I felt as though I was making up my mind about Ronnie Radke. I've known for quite some time that he is a changed man, and the interview just reiterated that for me. He's not a bad guy, for that matter he's not even mean, like so many thought he was. Even Bryan admitted that he was worried about how Ronnie would be in an interview. He's just been hurt, and resentful. For very good reason, if you ask me.
Nobody would take getting more or less framed, and ditched by your so called "best friend" lightly. Let alone going to jail for something you sincerely did not do. His emotions show very deeply in the album, and he's shown it some at live shows. Fans will talk against Craig Mabbitt and all the others in Escape The Fate, and while it appears on occasion that Ronnie encourages that, he really doesn't. Yes, he's said some shit too, but in all fairness, he deserved to!
I wouldn't nessicarly say I'm a fan of Ronnie Radke, but I do like Falling In Reverse's music a lot, but I do have a certain respect for him. I like how he's handling himself, and how he's taken a terrible situation and made the best out of it. He appericates the life he's got now, and I think he appericates his fans and his fame even more now. He would out of the picture for two years, and had only been doing stuff with Escape The Fate a year or so before that. Time like that away can sometimes make or break a star.
There is more I have to say on the subject of Ronnie Radke, but I feel I should keep some things to myself. I don't want to talk shit, or start any rumors, so I will just keep my unfair assumptions to myself. While I do have my own assumptions, I do wish people would quit hating on him so much. He doesn't deserve it. He messed up, but so what? He's human, and honestly Max messed up more than Ronnie did. Max is still messing up, but I won't get into that. I'm sick of the whole "Ronnie vs Max" debate, and I''m sure a lot of other people are too.
Falling In Reverse is currently on tour with.....Eyes Set To Kill, I believe. I'm not sure exactly. They have had so many line up changes on this tour, and they're going to have another one. For a couple of weeks next month, they'll be joined by Black Veil Brides.
I am so dissapointed right now, you guys can not even imagine. The other day, I eamiled twenty two questions to Mayday Parade's manager as she asked. I assumed she asked for them so the band would have time to think about their answers. Wrong, apparently she just wasn't clear on the fact that it will not be in person. She says she's denied everyone who's asked for interviews in person, but encouraged people to do interviews on the phone or through email.
I accepted the email interview, as its better than nothing. Jaime (their manager) also emailed me back saying I can still attend the concert, and meet the band, just they do not have time for an interview. While I do understand, and defentily plan on going to the concert still.
While I am greatly dissapointed that I don't get the experience of doing my first big interview in person, I am trying to look on the bright side. I still do get the answers from the band themselves, and I still get to see one of my favorite bands in person. I can still get my autograph, and in fact, this time I can go and support the band as a fan, not a "professional".
So yeah, sorry guys. I'll post their responses whenever I get them, and I guess I'll be talking about meeting them and seeing them live in a while. You're probably not as dissapointed as I am, I really don't think anyone was aware of just how much this ment to me.
So I had the weirdest, but best dream last night. It seemed so real too. I
dreampt that last night was the day Black Veil Brides is coming close to me for
a show, and the manager last minute called me up agreeing to an interview.
Naturally, I got excited and we headed out right away. Then I get another call
saying 'I'm at the wrong venue, come get me? The boys can't." So we go to some
unknown place, and pick up their manager. On the way my mom decides to stop at a friend's house (IDK why at all!) and I take it as a chance to change. Why I had extra clothes with me, I don't know. Nor do I understand why I was in a floral dress, as I haven't owned one since I was like tweleve.
Anyway, so I go an change, and get my mom to stop visiting and we get to the venue. Jamie (Their manager) pulled me backstage and told me to go off and find them. I didn't think that was the best idea, as I didn't want to catch them getting dressed, or possibly disturb one of the other bands. I didn't have much time, so I just started wandering around a bit. As I was a door opened, and out came all of Black Veil Brides, and Andy nearly walks into me.
The moment he notices me, he's like, "Oh, I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to walk into you! Are you here for the interview?"
The annoying part was, the second he said that I woke up. -_- I didn't even get to actually TALK to any of them. In fact, I barely saw CC or Jake, I only really saw Ashley, Andy, and Jinxx. For some reason too, they all were really fucking tall! I know Andy is over six foot, and I'm not even five foot, but they seemed huge to me for some reason!
Weird dream, but I sitll hope to interview them...well, I hope to without having to go pick up their manager at some random ass place in the middle of no where.
