Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 3)“I wanted to challenge gender, abuse the audience. I didn’t want the girls to want to fuck me, I wanted the straight guys to want to fuck me.”
“It’s amazing to be here with people who love music in a non-violent way. If you’re mad, don’t throw a punch, don’t start a fire about it, don’t shout about it. Sing, that’s the most powerful weapon you have.”
"I thought if we made an album that tried to change the world, or give it hope, it would really happen. But all people found was death and destruction and misery and self-hate. I learned that the world doesn't want to be saved, and it will fucking punch you in the face if you try."
"Me and my kid brother used to grow up—we used to grow up? Everybody used to grow up! We had comics, and that’s the only thing we had to escape the kind of place we lived in. And it made us lift up our heads, make
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."
“I write them wherever I may happen to be when I get hit with inspiration. A lot of times I just make notes of sentences. What I usually do is write paragraphs of free style, just really descriptive phrases and I’ll draw upon those phrases later. I try to get the sound before I get the lyrics.”
"Freedom is a real big theme. We needed freedom to happen for us on this record so

Gerard-- a life in quotes (final part)“I had a discussion with Lindsey about [the new album] and I was like, ‘Wow, all this stuff I’m writing is kind of full of hate. I don’t know why that is.’ She’s like, ‘Cause you’re happy.’”
“We have the best fans in the world because they are pretty much as crazy as we are.”
“I don’t know why but I’ve always hated myself. Hopefully that self-hate is growing into something else now; hopefully it’s grown into caring about myself and wanting to stay alive.”
“Nobody’s in the middle with us. It’s either ‘I love them’ or ‘I want to kill them’. People love us and believe in us or they want to see us destroyed. And I love that.”
“I needed [the support of my bandmates]. I’m still scared, though; I worry it could happen again and
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 2)“It’s more important to keep yourself alive, there’s nothing worth ever hurting yourself over. I mean, I’m a person that goes through a lot of depression, and stress, and things like that. I’m generally happier these days. But I have, it’s normal, it’s completely normal to be depressed. […] I think it’s just important that you keep yourself alive, you just stay fighting.”
"Yeah, obviously we use vampires as a metaphor for something else, something deeper than just the supernatural. But there's just something about the bloodsucking walking dead, that can say so much to people. There are really so many people trying to get control over you on a daily basis and steal your soul in some way, take a part of you..."
"It all started off with the best intentions, but I took it too far and I ended up on a trip. There were some moments when I felt like I was on a crusade. I don’t k

I never thought of Aerosmith as a band that I'd like, but when "Jaded" showed up on Pandora I fell in love with it. It's so fun and catchy. Shows what great music you can find when you broaden your horizons a little.

I love the spontaneity of this song. Her voice is so free and passionate that it sounds more like a live track than a studio recording. Her voice is so unique and charming, too-- I've never heard anyone like her. The piano an

Interview with deadmau5 about GerardRead it and watch the video here: http://live105.cbslocal.com/2012/08/21/deadmau5-talks-his-organic-collaboration-with-my-chemical-romances-gerard-way/
During an exclusive interview with KROQ jock Stryker, EDM superstar Deadmau5 talked about his recent collaboration with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, the song “Professional Griefers,” and how it came together organically.
“I haven’t really known him that long in the way that I’d like to say, ‘I know that guy,’” Deadmaus said regarding his relationship with the MCR singer. “I don’t 100 percent know Gerard or where his head’s at, but I like where it’s going. I kind of connected with him on the level that he’s almost in the same position I am. He’s amid a sea of emo rock bands, you know what I mean? I’m in the middle of a sea of DJs and stuff like that, so we both had that connection. I felt it was a kind of cool collab, b
Rehab 2Early the next morning, Gerard stumbled into the bathroom and pulled up his pant leg to clean and bandage his cuts. He rummaged through the cabinets quietly, trying not to disturb the sleeping Frank who lay not far from him. He retrieved a bottle of peroxide, cotton pads and Band-Aids. He grimaced slightly as the shallow wounds stung when the peroxide-soaked cotton pad came in contact with them. After a thorough, uncomfortable cleaning, he gently placed the bandages over the cuts and collapsed into bed once again.
Roughly twenty minutes later, a shrill bell sounded. Frank slowly opened his eyes and turned over. He looked over to Gerard, who also lay awake. "God, I don't want to get up." he said sleepily. "Me either. What time is it?" Frank glanced at the clock. "Eight." Gerard took the pillow from beneath his head and pressed it to his face. "Fuck you, rehab." he muttered. He'd never been a morning person. It wasn't often that you saw him out of bed before 2 pm.

What's... What's wrong with me?! -RP-((This was based on what would happen to Italy if this happened --> http://ask2p-italy.deviantart.com/journal/#/d5rnlme All in favor of making this a whole chat event, please say so! The RPER of 2p Italy has already thought about it and has agreed to it if we do decide to.((
It was a bright and sunny day and Italy was late to training like always. He wasn't in such a good mood today which was rare for him, and his eyes were opened, another rare sight. He bursted through the doors of Germanys house, yelling out.
"I'm so sorry! I forgot it was today!" He bounded towards Germany, who turned to him, same scowl he had on every day Italy had been late. Germany was holding a beer in his hand and sipped it lightly.
"Vhy do I even bother with you?" He said, glaring angrily and giving the usual speech about how it was important to be on time and be disciplined and things like that. "Zhis ist the last straw, Italy! NEIN! I vont allow su

How to Roleplay in the dA DangerverseMany people seem to be confused about roleplaying in the dA Dangerverse, so here are instructions on joining and information about the universe, as well as advice on what to do and what not to do.
1. Create a deviantART account for your character. (You can roleplay with your main account, but most people prefer to keep their main account and roleplaying separate.)
2. Now it's time to find other players. Find one roleplayer and check their watch list, which should be located on their page. (If it's not, find another player.) Most RP accounts watch other RP accounts. Unlike Tumblr or Twitter, where you have hundreds of roleplayers and dozens of different groups, dA has just one big Dangerverse.
At the time of writing this, you can find many roleplayers at KilljoyRoleplayers.
To introduce yourself, watch as many active Dangerverse RPers as possible. Players are always glad to see a new
