Elephant 6 Primer [Jul. 26th, 2009|02:18 pm]
You want your canon? We've GOT your canon!


"I think what Elephant 6 meant for us is very simple: there's something pure and infinite in you, that wants to come out of you, and can come out of no other person on the planet. That's what you've got to share, and that's as real and important as the fact that you're alive. We were able, at a really young age, to somehow protect each other so we could feel that. The world at large, careerism, money, magazines, your parents, the people at the rock club in your town, other kids, nothing is going to give you that message, necessarily. In fact, most things are going to lead you away from it, sadly, because humanity is really confused at the moment. But you wouldn't exist if the universe didn't need you. And any time I encounter something beautiful that came out of a human somewhere, that's them, that's their own soul. That's just pure, whatever its physicality is, if the person can play piano, if they can't play piano, if they're tone deaf, whatever it is, if it's pure, it hits you like a sledgehammer. It fills up your own soul, it makes you want to cry, it makes you glad you're alive, it lets you come out of you. And that's what we need: we desperately need you." -- Julian Koster

Piano Man: the Andrew McMahon primer [Jul. 27th, 2008|11:28 pm]
You want your canon? We've GOT your canon!

[Current Mood |accomplished]

BIG FAT DISCLAIMER: most of this info and pictures are culled from wiki sources, fansite links, interviews and secondhand public knowledge/gossip, so some things may or may not be accurate and this is by no means complete and definitely not objective. NONE of the pictures are mine. airgiodslv has the short version here, this is the embarrassingly long version. NOT AT ALL DIAL-UP SAFE.

This is Andrew McMahon. He was born on September 9 1982 and is famous for fronting Something Corporate and his solo project Jack's Mannequin.

long is kind of an understatement...Collapse )

omg NINE INCH NAILS: Trent/Robin primer of sorts [Jul. 21st, 2008|10:36 am]
You want your canon? We've GOT your canon!

[Current Mood |accomplished]

I posted a picspam and sort of intro into the pairing of Trent Reznor and Robin Finck (guitarist) of Nine Inch Nails in the wretchedfiction community. It's a primer in that it introduces the pairing but to an audience that is at least familiar with NIN (even if that means that they know Trent Reznor is the vocalist and mastermind behind NIN). However i think some of you might find it interesting at least. Come on over, enjoy and join and write if you want.

Nine Inch Nails are set to start a tour in a week and Robin Finck recently rejoined the band, so if you go and see them, and are in a slashy mode while you do it, you may like this. Consider it a tour preparation. Slashy backstory always makes concerts more interesting. :)

here we go. CLICKY CLICKY:

Nick Scimeca! [Jun. 12th, 2008|11:44 am]
You want your canon? We've GOT your canon!
This is my first primer so sorry if it sucks... Mostly I just gathered all the links, facts, pictures and junk that I knew and threw it together. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong or it sucks.
Alrighty, so in my many many days of being a bandom fangirl I have noticed that everyone and their mothers seems to know who Nick Scimeca is... and can recognize him in photos... but has no idea at all what he does or why they know him. It's sort of depressing because Nick... Nick is spectacular.

BRAND NEW/LONG ISLAND PRIMER [May. 12th, 2008|02:13 am]
You want your canon? We've GOT your canon!


"The amount of fucking-over that goes on is astounding. It's like a heightened reality."
-- aubateau, on the Long Island faction of fandom's wtfery.

It’s generally accepted that in bandslash (or at least the little corner of it that I hang out in) we’ve got a few factions going. The largest, most well known being the Fueled By Ramen (FBR) bands, which include Fall Out Boy and by extension all of Pete Wentz’s Decaydance bands (think Panic at the Disco, and Gym Class Heroes). Then we’ve got the Jersey bands, the most obvious being My Chemical Romance, with some Thursday and Saves the Day thrown in every once and again, as well as pretty much every band out there that has had anything to do with any of these bands ever (The Used, 30 Seconds to Mars, Rise Against). One would think that between Pete Wentz groping his dick online and Gerard Way begging the boys in the audience to get naked, there would be enough gay to satisfy even the heartiest of slashers. But gay is like birthday presents or Deadwood dvd extras - too much is never enough.

Thank God for Long Island.

The Long Island faction of bandom consists of three main aka “core” bands. They are: Taking Back Sunday, Straylight Run, and Brand New. This Primer will focus on the relationship between these bands and their members, key events they mutually experienced or were effected by, as well as very brief overviews of both Taking Back Sunday and Straylight Run. Mostly, this primer will focus on the band Brand New and their musical history/timeline. This primer is very image and text heavy - it is NOT dial up friendly. All the links, excluding the footnotes, are external unless otherwise stated, and will open in a new window unless you command+T that shit. I try to site sources wherever possible, and in general be very thorough. I’m told it’s creepy.

This Is The Way You Wish Your [Band] Sounds: The Brand New/General Long Island PrimerCollapse )

ETA #1 (05.08.08): Some random ~~gossipy info added to the bottom of the primer.
ETA #2 (30.08.08): Added some quote about the Fight Off Your Demons demos leak. Found here, in the sub-section.
ETA #3 (11.01.09): New website dramz! In place of the BN thread on the Phorum Netwerk site, there is now the cryptic message, "Gone Fishing." View the screencap here.
ETA #4 (11.01.09): The new Brand New record is set for release 22 September, 2009. It is called Daisy.

NOTE: I am no longer editing/keeping up this primer. All the photos are gone because my photobucket is gone, but for the record, every single photo I found through google images.
