I'm eager to see how activity around GDC and the 'green day community' (lower case, as in, not the location, but the fan base as a whole) changes over the next several months as the band starts doing promo again and goes back on tour.
Around the release we saw such a huge influx of users. Monthly traffic last month here on GDC was more than 75% higher than the same time last year. Expected. Unfortunately November this month was down 26% from October. Also expected since there's a whole lot
Happy December! It's that time of year where we let ol' Frosty here loose. If you don't know who this magical beast is, you can find it by switching the theme at the bottom of the forum.
Please use Frosty responsibly.
Not counting today, and I am not, there is exactly four days left of November and NANOWRIMO. For those who don't know, which is apparently most people, NANOWRIMO is the abbreviation of National Novel Writing Month, AKA November. There's a site that basically organizes this whole thing where you write a 50,000 words (min) novel in a month. The point is to just write everyday and get it out of the way, even if it's crap. Editing and all that magic can happen later.
It's also something we do f
Last weekend, I took a day trip and during the drive to and from I decided to listen to the Green Day albums in order uninterrupted (save for the event I went to). This was significant for me in many ways. In truth, I have a terrible habit of not listening to anything as an album anymore. After importing all of my CDs to my ipod years back, I seemed to have it on permanent shuffle. Maybe it's just that I'm never going anywhere long enough for an album listen. Anyhow, I really wanted to go on thi
I look around me to see where do I fit in this world... every time I think I found my seat, I get chased away by the people who think that I'm the odd one out.
I never belonged anywhere, not in school, not in university, not even in my own home. My society thinks that I'm weird, other societies also think that I'm weird since I have a cocktail of interests and a contradictive mixture of beliefs that make me the outcast wherever I go.
To the people around me, I've always been the girl t

Cursed be the name

Cursed be the voter

Cursed be the same

Hi whoever manages their way over onto this blog thingy I just have to vent about the recent things ive seen "fans" of Green Day say that's really grinding my gears. <Terrible Family Guy meme> So as of recent ive seen a lot of people who claim to be fans of Green Day or their music leave -I guess that's how you would put it- the fandom or stop/ boycott listening to the music altogether because they found out Billie didn't vote for Trump or because of all his recent political posting.

Do you ever feel like your heart is pumping poison instead of blood, every time you feel that painful contraction, squeezing out every drop of its special recipe for agony, forcing you to curl into a ball, trying to contain the infection in your blood from spreading to your friends and family?!
Do you shut yourself out from everyone you know, in order to treat yourself with an antidote the formula of which you don't really know, but you try to figure out?!

We cannot escape the perceptions of us held by others, nor can we escape from our perceptions of others and the truth that the people we surround ourselves with are who we make them out to be.
If we accept this to be true, we are at any one time the version of ourselves that others hold to be true. That doesn't diminish us as an individual in our own right (unless the view of us held is inherently shitty) but it's explain why we can be such a different person around different people. Maybe
Maybe punk's not the right word but... This is just weird.
I went to lock my phone and remembered that I had stored a piece of paper between my phone case and my phone for safe keeping.
A few days ago I had worn my Rancid shirt to work. We were getting a delivery of milk to the store and the guy who was bringing it in had recognized my shirt and knew who they were. Bonus points for him, now he's cool.
Before he officially left he came back in and gave me a little piece of paper and s

New lyrics. Enjoy. Samples music from "Bang" by Anitta.
On Your Warning, My Dear
You got me on an island
defiantly moving to the groove
You saw me at the pretense
to defend words you use to sooth
You take it to the crosshair
where the beats are just an interlude
You seek me for what I am
understand that's not true attitude
It's an affliction
It's and addiction
One that crushes

Aww, look at my blog name. That's cute.
It's weird , I haven't been on here in 3 years.
I remember coming on almost every morning before school, sometimes during school, then after school. Back when I was convinced that Green Day was what made me happy, I could just fire up an album and lose myself in the music.
I don't know what changed. I still love them, but they're just a band now. I've gone months without even thinking about them, when a few years ago they were all
Green Day @ Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, IL. October 23, 2016.
Sometimes I come up with crazy ideas. This one seemed like a crazy-not-so-responsible-idea, but I just couldn’t let it go so I pulled the trigger. I knew I wouldn’t regret it in the end.
Green Day’s new album Revolution Radio came out on October 7th and they’ve been playing a few club shows in the United States to warm up before they start their official world tour. The closest show they were going to play was Chicago on Wed
Literally everyday something tells me to go register to vote. A teacher, a school announcement, a classmate, an ad on the internet, etc.
When it's a person I can explain, tedious it may be. It gets frustrating after a while. No, I can't register to vote. No I can't register to vote when I turn 18. I won't be able to vote in this election, or the next one. Oh why you ask? Simple. I'm not a US Citizen.
I mean, I live here, but apparently some people don't realize living somewhere and bei
