I had a hard time trying to decide if I post this here or another place of the forum. But here seems more appropiate, because this be LONG. I've been digesting the new record since the first leak, and trying to understand why Green Day did this as it is. First thoughs were around the "classic" experimentation and eclectic sound, that at this point of their carreer, is the main rule. A lot of people were unimpress, or in the worst of cases, overreacting for the falsettos and that Billie Joe and c
So as we all know "Oh Yeah" just came out a couple hours ago, and I don't wanna make a single thread for every time a new song comes out, so I'm using this blog. If you guys don't know, I recently made 8-bit (and, by request, 16-bit) versions of "Father of All..." and "Fire, Ready, Aim", and many people seemed to like them. And now, "Oh Yeah!" has its own 8-bit remake as well!
yeah thats all, next post probably after the album is released
2009 for me ended with a broken promise: my parents were supposed to take me to my very first Green Day concert. We were already talking about tickets when they changed, well... actually a woman made them change their mind.
I failed my first year of high school, I had no friends and I preferred being alone in my room every day. They were worried so they decided to take me to a psychologist who told them I didn't deserve to go to that tour date.
Oh man, I was so mad about this. I was already
Howdy howdy GDC! It's been a minute since I've been here but I come with exciting news!
This year is my fifth year participating in Extra Life! If you don't know what that is, it is a gamer driven community raising donations for the Children's Miracle Network, benefiting the Children's Hospitals across the US. I have a goal of 250$ this and we just crossed 100$! It's a really great cause to be a part of if you're interested, and there are two wonderful opportunities available for donors!
Hi guys! I know I haven't been online in a bit, but I finally have some time to come online in between working four jobs and going through my move to the Unites States.
There is something I just wanted to vent about because it is something that is constantly on my mind, and I feel like writing about it would be therapeutic. There's no better place to do this than on my favourite website.
So, the truth: I never noticed how repulsive I am until recently.
In 2016/2017, I wa
I know you'll never read this.
It seems pathetic to be back in the same place, feeling the same things. A lot has changed, and yet so much has remained the same. And a lot has led me back to this place, once again.
I took a job with a youth group this summer. The job provided an opportunity to work with youth away from the nepotism and delegation of the Y. But I didn't choose this program for that sole reason.
I chose this program because it would require me to be back here for
Californian band Green Day hit prominence with a shudder in 2004 when they released the tour de force American Idiot. The snotty nosed personas were wiped clean and maturity was installed making Green Day a band to consider taking seriously once again. In their heyday smoking cannabis and writing songs about sexual frustrations, Green Day pummelled the status quo, crafting tracks which had the three chord structure but intelligently weaved lyrics.
The style was dishevelled but compelling. A
I posted this in the album thread a while ago but since I bothered to write 4,500 words about it, I decided to immortalise it here. My intepretations of every song on The Longshot's Love is for Losers, with doodles to go with them. These are all based on my own feelings and aren't necessarily correct.

The narrator has upset his lover, they’re giving him the silent treatment, he doesn’t really understand why or if there’s even a valid reason, but he’s promising it’ll be th
Kinda wish we still had the other subforums up so I could make a topic, but check it out yall- I finally got a band up and running.
We went into the studio 3 weeks back to record our first track (with this lineup, these guys have been going on and off for 2 years) and now its available for streaming. We did our first gig two weeks back, and have another coming up this weekend. Its been a hell of a ride. Gonna use this blog to keep yall updated on whats going on if anyones interested. Plu
I'm very excited to announce that @kaylubd has been promoted to GDA Staff!
They'll be joining us to help bring some life back to GDA and keep the site updated with Green Day related news for the fans!

My opinions do not matter.
Only whether or not I have done my chores matters.
My existence is to serve, not to think and not to speak unless temporarily allowed to do so.
I am not allowed to set personal boundaries without some kind of punishment being distributed toward me.
Punishment has no rhyme nor reason other than the will of my 'superior' who works 12 hours a day minimum for 3 days a week minimum because I have no job skills and cannot hold a job.

Hello everyone! Welcome back to Nico Talks About Creepypastas. After seven and a half months. Yay. Anyway, that quote up there is an excerpt from a local newspaper (location unknown). TL;DR: it's about a boy that almost got killed by someone, or something. This story is one of the most famous creepypastas out there, and it's called Jeff the Killer.
You might be thinking, "One of the most famous creepypastas of all time is just a boring newspaper excerpt? What the fuck man?" But that's just

I don't know how many or if any of you remember me, because I haven't posted for way too long. I want to give more than one update, though. Mainly not for the sake of giving an update, but because I know how some of you feel and it might give some of you some hope.
I know that when I first came here, I was severely depressed. At school I was the outsider, at hockey I got bullied so much it ended with a broken collar bone. It destroyed me so much because I thought my hockey career wou
I've been insecure before, nothing new. Usually my insecurity is my place in other people's lives rather than something physical/my appearance. I worry about annoying others, pushing them away, or being too clingy. Especially when it comes to my romantic relationships - I've been trying to work past it for years. So something happened recently and I need some advice about whether I'm A) being stupid/insecure and need to knock this shit off, or if B) I'm right in feeling insecure. Back story to t
This year, I published a book of Green Day fan stories and art. I wanted to document the band’s incredible impact on a diverse fanbase. So, I gathered stories and fanart from fans of all ages, from Greece to California to Costa Rica to China. All 161 pages are a truly wonderful testament to how Green Day have changed lives and the devotion of their fans. I knew I was going to be proud of it – and everyone in it – but quite how proud I was didn’t hit me until I opened up the box.
I feel like this post is too long for the relationships thread so seems like a better place to chuck it in the blog.
My boyfriend/damn near fiance and I have been together for 3 years. BEST three years of my life. He treats me like a princess, he's kind to me, we hardly argue, and he's a sexy beast. All around, we are a perfect fit and I'm madly in love with him. I bug him about getting married all the time! We talk about the future, kids, all that stuff.
But... I st
This is the last of the lyrics for Angel In The Drone. I don't have anything else prepared after this, so this might be the last you hear from me, at least for a while. I hope you enjoyed all the shit that I wrote up until this point. Thanks for reading!

So I ended up going to the doctor's office to make sure all of my prescriptions are in order and basically an annual check-up, and I told him about my severe migraines I've been getting for the last 6 months or so. About 3 to 4 times a week, I get debilitating migraines that sometimes make it so I can't see, sometimes I throw up, and other times I get so dizzy I can hardly walk. So he prescribed me a brand new medication (and I mean this thing is brand spanking new out of the factory type thing,

Okay, so in my short 20 years of life I have had my fair share of relationships. Most of them short-lived and uneventful, as most high school relationships go. But, that doesn't mean that relationships (high school or not) don't hurt when they end.
I've kind of taught myself little things that help me when relationships go sour (even platonic or familial relationships!) so I don't completely break down or lose myself.
