donttestme May 20, 2013 02:10 pm I could write a whole essay about this LOL. donttestme May 20, 2013 02:10 pm *to create chaos. He is pretty much the center of attention. donttestme May 20, 2013 02:09 pm And because it's pop culture, once you make a mistake (iHeart e.g.) you will ALWAYS be watched and judged. Billie is now in the center of attention and they're just looking for ways to create donttestme May 20, 2013 02:08 pm Let's not forget it's the pop culture we're talking about. The media has evolved, thus finding out things is easier and faster. One famous person says something, we find out in 3 seconds a Evenstar606 May 20, 2013 01:23 pm That is very true, YoureInRuins. YoureInRuins May 20, 2013 07:07 am And the days when you say things you regret are much more common when you are struggling with an addiction to pretty much anything. It's an "eff this" kind of mentality YoureInRuins May 20, 2013 07:06 am for anyone and everyone to scrutinize. If you or I had said it, no one would have cared. It wouldn't have made any news anywhere. YoureInRuins May 20, 2013 07:06 am Everyone has their off days and says stuff they regret. It's just that not everyone is in the public eye like they are (or any celebrity) so the fact that it was said, leaves it out there forever PrettyVacant May 20, 2013 12:36 am Yep, I saw that and I was so happy he addressed it. Sometimes Billie worries me though. I've heard from those who've actually met him he's very nice but still... Evenstar606 May 20, 2013 12:23 am Agreed! Billie talked about the Steve Jobs rant in the Rolling Stone interview. He said he wasn't himself. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 11:43 pm Such as Billie's Steve Jobs rant, his whole pre-AI stint in New York, some of the things BJ says on IG, but they're good guys and I love them. They changed my life! PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 11:40 pm I agree. I typically don't agree with their political beliefs either but I do appreciate what they stand for, if that makes sense. And yes, there are things they've done I can't condone Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 11:11 pm Lol, just noticed the shoutbox cut me off. I love Green Day no matter what, is what I meant to say. :D Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 10:13 pm A lot of people like to hate on Green Day for some reason. I've never really understood it. I don't agree with their political views sometimes, but I don't hate on them for it. I love Gree Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 09:58 pm Aww :( Some people are just horribly rude and ignorant. Billie's done an amazing job with his life. People don't need a fancy degree to be worth something. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 09:37 pm And btw, damn, some of those comments were just mean and ugly! One person said something like Psy was a college graduate and Billie didn't have any room to talk because he's a HS dropout Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 09:26 pm Yeah, I recall something about his Anti-U.S rants. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:59 pm One thing I'd like to point out is that Psy only likes Americans as long as they buy his muisc, because before Gangnam Style, he was actively anti-U.S. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:58 pm Found several articles. Found several people taking this as their opportunity to bash GD. Found out that Psy has no idea what herpes is, tee-hee. Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:51 pm Type in BJ_Unoxx and scroll down his pictures a bit. Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:50 pm Yup, just checked, it's on his Instagram. Lol. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:49 pm Do you remember where the article was? Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:48 pm @PV: I think it was on his Instagram...I don't follow him anymore, but read an article about it. Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:47 pm Pay just laughed it off though, so at least he can take an insult. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:47 pm As a side note, I thought that said, Hermes not herpes. Like as in the Greek god with the winged sandals, lol PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:46 pm Oh. My. God. Dude, when did he say that? That's hilarious! Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:43 pm Just throwing that out there, lol. Evenstar606 May 19, 2013 08:43 pm I don't blame Billie Joe for comparing Psy to Herpes, because Psy is annoying. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:39 pm I mean, God forbid the boys try to have a little fun and not be so serious PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:37 pm Frankly, I think that the trilogy was some of their best work. It really shows how much BJ has matured as a person. I'm sick of people saying it was his mid-life crisis. Gimme a break. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:36 pm They do their own thing whether it's popular or not, the trilogy being a good example. Is it popular? Not exactly. But they're great albums and the guys had fun making them PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:34 pm I think that's what separates artists from musicians, being able to evolve. That said, luckily, GD have never tried to "re-invent" themselves to try to earn more money. PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 08:33 pm If there's one thing you have to give the guys credit for, it's that each album quite unique from all the others.They're always experimenting with new sounds. YoureInRuins May 19, 2013 08:19 pm have fallen in love with every one of their albums, even if I didn't LOVE it at first, I absolutely love them all now. Its about evolution, and about experiencing the music. YoureInRuins May 19, 2013 08:18 pm I absolutely agree as well. Each album is unique in it's own way, and I think that they have all been amazing. 21 Guns is one of my all time favorites as well (obviously?) but I h PrettyVacant May 19, 2013 03:39 pm @dont: I agree with you one hundred percent. donttestme May 19, 2013 12:24 pm They're just self-entitled little bitches who think they own the band and that Green Day are their little slaves that will just kiss their fans ass. Just let the band be and explore themselves. donttestme May 19, 2013 12:23 pm Now that they are trying different things, they bitch about 21CB not being like AI (or god forbid they do something that isn't Dookie...) donttestme May 19, 2013 12:23 pm @PV I really love 21CB. And those people are just closed minded and cannot grasp the concept of EVOLUTION. Like,if GD kept doing AI-esque albums, they would bitch about GD being boring. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:46 pm @wasting-your-time: Also try Synnerx, and two of my own fics. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:44 pm To me it's all about being creative, doing what you want and growing as an artist. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:44 pm I think some fans just come to expect things from bands, and they get pissed whenever the bands try something new or different. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:42 pm I agree, it's irritating that people tend to compare all of the albums to one another, like their supposed to all follow the same ideas. Each album is unique in its own way. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:41 pm @PV: I love AI the most because it was the first Green Day album I ever bought, and the first album outside of the country music genre I had listened to for so long. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 10:40 pm @Wasting-your-time: Anything by Zildjianrocker, Senora Swanky, Pretty Vacant, FallenSkulls, Lixfer...there's a lot of great stuff here. wasting-your---time May 18, 2013 10:09 pm CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME GOOD FICS THAT AREN'T SLASH thank. wasting-your---time May 18, 2013 10:06 pm CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME GOOD FICS THAT AREN'T SLASH thank. PrettyVacant May 18, 2013 09:24 pm And speaking of which, it irks me how everyone compares the trilogy to AI. They're two different things, it's like saying pretzels are better than ice cream because ice cream isn't salty PrettyVacant May 18, 2013 09:22 pm I was mainly curious because a lot of people on GDA bitch about how they think it was lame especially compared to AI. But I think they're both great albums PrettyVacant May 18, 2013 09:21 pm I love that song too. I also love Know Your Enemy and Before the Lobotomy. Oh, and East Jesus Nowhere. Evenstar606 May 18, 2013 09:20 pm @PV: I loved it! 21 Guns is one of my top Green Day songs. PrettyVacant May 18, 2013 08:45 pm Damn I forgot the question mark. Grammatically, I failed :( PrettyVacant May 18, 2013 08:44 pm Okay, this is super random but it is GD-related so bear with me. Can anyone tell me whether or not they honestly liked 21CB or not. Personally, I liked it a lot. xxTreCoolsWifeyxx May 18, 2013 04:58 pm Anyone Like CKY? Hippomusic May 18, 2013 02:24 pm ugh, the new daft punk album can be streamed for free on ITunes, but I can't get myself to listen to it until it's released. I feel like I'm cheating or something Evenstar606 May 17, 2013 10:27 pm Hi!! j3susofsuburbia May 17, 2013 07:01 pm announcing my arrival- I AM HERE Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 10:30 pm Many pools test positive for E Coli even if they look 'clean'. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 10:28 pm Eww what a headline: "CDC Says Poop is Prevalent in Public Pools." That, my friends, is a huge reason I never will swim in a public pool. Yuck. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 10:24 pm I know! Sometimes they give me ideas for original fics. PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 10:12 pm It's always fun for me to read through the challenges and think about all the different fic possibilities. PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 10:10 pm You won't be disappointed! Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 10:07 pm I'll have to check both of them out! PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 10:03 pm HOMS is a series of vignettes, which are like poetic prose, if that makes sense. It is also very beautifully done. I read as a frosh and hated it until Junior year whenI learned to appreciate it PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 10:01 pm But the author narrates the actual story and she had some truly beautiful passages. PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 10:01 pm Their Eyes Were Watching God is more of a novel. It takes some time to read though because it's written in southern black dialect. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 09:59 pm They sound interesting, I've never heard of those books. PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 09:51 pm I love Of Mice and Men. Never read frankenstein. I think my favorite books in school were Their Eyes Were Watching God and The House on Mango Street. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 09:47 pm My two favorite books we read in high school were Frankenstein and Of Mice And Men. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 09:45 pm I've never read his books. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 09:44 pm @PV: Movie was pretty good after all the idiotic party scenes ended and the real
Plot began. PrettyVacant May 16, 2013 08:56 pm Even: Would you still recommend the movie? Never read the book, Fitzgerald writes like a pretentious ass, IMHO. But I thought the movie looked cool Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 02:50 am I was looking forward to seeing this movie, since I never read the book. But the choice of music...WTF. Majorly stupid. Evenstar606 May 16, 2013 02:49 am Went to see The Great Gatsby. The second half of the movie was great, but the first half was stupid because they chose to use modern day shitty hip hop music instead of music from the 1920's. brainstew May 15, 2013 05:39 pm I love this. PrettyVacant May 15, 2013 09:41 am Amen to that, sister. Evenstar606 May 15, 2013 09:03 am I sure as hell wouldn't. Snakes are scary. PrettyVacant May 15, 2013 09:03 am Even: When I read that, my first thought was "EEEWWWW!" and my second thought was, "Who in the hell would buy a rattlesnake statue?" I mean really, who would want such a thing? Evenstar606 May 15, 2013 09:02 am There was more than one all sitting together on the shelf. 0.o Evenstar606 May 15, 2013 09:01 am You definitely wouldn't like the life size rattlesnake statue my mom and I saw in the gardening section of Kmart, then. It was creepy, so we moved away from it as fast as we could! PrettyVacant May 15, 2013 08:05 am Ha, whenever I think about snakes, I always remember Tre with that reporter lady saying, "Do you like animals? Do you like snakes?" and then reaching into his pants. Lol, oh, that man... PrettyVacant May 15, 2013 08:03 am I had a terrifying dream about pythons. My biggest fear is definitely snakes. Evenstar606 May 15, 2013 03:30 am It wasn't Green Day related at all, and only slightly plot related but it was strange lol. Evenstar606 May 15, 2013 03:29 am I had an interesting dream this morning, now I really want to update my fic. Hopefully I'll have another dream tonight and have a good starting paragraph to help me out. What a strange, vivid drea Trestein May 12, 2013 11:14 am Tre's instagram update <3 Evenstar606 May 12, 2013 12:16 am @wasting-your-time: What happened?? wasting-your---time May 11, 2013 10:55 pm fan fiction ruins lives D: D: PrettyVacant May 11, 2013 03:07 pm @Tre: Consider me fucking shocked and along for the ride! Evenstar606 May 11, 2013 02:48 pm I'll have to try that and see if it works, thanks! Trestein May 11, 2013 01:18 pm So, I was planning on writing a one shot, but it's suddenly become a chapter story and guess what, it's not even Trillie. Fucking shocker! Even, have you tried untracking and retracking them? Evenstar606 May 11, 2013 12:44 pm Nope...it says I'm tracking it...then why aren't I receiving alerts??? Evenstar606 May 11, 2013 12:42 pm Apparently Tracking Stories doesn't work for me because ZR has had three updates and I wasn't notified. Maybe I forgot to hit 'Submit' when choosing to track it??? Trestein May 11, 2013 10:18 am @ZR; Try to ride it out, or combat it. Always know the shoutbox is here to listen! PrettyVacant May 11, 2013 07:49 am @Ash: Oh no, you're not bothering me, sweetie. Yes, I would be happy to beta for you on your next story. ZildjianRocker May 11, 2013 05:36 am Having rubbish weekend :( massive anxiety Evenstar606 May 11, 2013 12:36 am I thought the storyline for Brave was very unique. The whole "true love" plot gets old and tired, and Brave went for something new. AshtreeTherapist May 10, 2013 09:12 pm *bother you AshtreeTherapist May 10, 2013 09:10 pm @PrettyVacant: Heh, thanks. Umm have you thought about beta-ing my next story? I don't want to bother PrettyVacant May 10, 2013 08:36 pm @Ash: No need to apologize, I go on rants on daily basis. Actually, it's more like an hourly basis. I cannot condense my thoughts, lol AshtreeTherapist May 10, 2013 08:23 pm I apologize for you having to hear my rant. AshtreeTherapist May 10, 2013 08:15 pm And as for feminism, I guess things are a lot better than they used to be back in, say, the '30s. But there's still a lot of sexism out there. AshtreeTherapist May 10, 2013 08:09 pm Did they really HAVE to make-over Merida like thay? Yeah its fun to play around with characters but that is everything that Merida isnt. sorta makes me wonder if they understand their own characters. Synnerxx May 10, 2013 07:15 pm I am determined to update something besides "Words" tonight. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 06:56 pm Merida was cool! I hate how they have to make everything 'sexy' now days. Synnerxx May 10, 2013 06:17 pm Hello! :D PrettyVacant May 10, 2013 06:03 pm I'm just saying it's quite interesting for a culture that is supposed to be so progressive as far as feminism goes. Any thoughts on this? PrettyVacant May 10, 2013 06:02 pm Point is, I think it's interesting how we are seeing a trend of little girls being infatuated with princesses, sparkles, and pink. Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course. PrettyVacant May 10, 2013 06:01 pm Brave is the only Disney princess movie that wasn't about finding true love or some such drivel. And I thought Merida was cool. Especially her hair:) PrettyVacant May 10, 2013 05:59 pm Just read an article about how Disney gave a makeover to Merida, the princess from the movie Brave. They made her look older and sexier. I was a little upset. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 04:50 pm I've been good! :D how about you? Trestein May 10, 2013 01:42 pm I'm not even that privileged! I use my phone though, t'is my best friend xD How have you been Even? Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 10:04 am I can't either so I settled for the iPod Touch lol. Trestein May 10, 2013 09:20 am I hate anything with an 'i' before it. It's probably jealousy, because I can't afford an iphone. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 04:03 am Also, The Beatles song "I'll Be On My Way" is not available on iTunes, sadly. Wonderful song, wish I could have it. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 01:41 am Re-Importing my CD's. Not going to bother with the songs on my Zune, I'll just buy them again on iTunes. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 01:22 am In the process of just deleting all my imported songs from iTunes, and my computer locks up. Fuck. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 01:03 am iTunes is a disaster of a program. I should have just stuck with my CD's and CD player. Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 01:00 am The missing songs were ones I transferred over two years ago from CD's and my Zune. iTunes put a (!) next to all the song titles and says they can't be found? Evenstar606 May 10, 2013 12:59 am I fucking hate iTunes. A chunk of my music library is gone off my iPod after I synched the damn thing last night. Free_Falling1992 May 9, 2013 08:24 pm I think it was on Yahoo or something. They were saying how if Green Day were to retire right now, they'd have enough hits and records to live a comfortable life just touring. Free_Falling1992 May 9, 2013 08:20 pm I read somewhere that GD was one of the bands that could have a long standing career if they were to stop right now. Meaning they'd be classics.But they were with Taylor Swift, so idk... PrettyVacant May 9, 2013 03:18 pm Eazy: I got it, honey. I'll respond to you shortly. Trestein May 9, 2013 12:35 pm Thanks Zildjian! Good to see some familer faces, and I hope to read a lot of great fics this summer from your guys and hopefully new faces. Eazy182 May 9, 2013 07:36 am *the Eazy182 May 9, 2013 07:36 am @PretyVacant I sent you he rest of to story I hope you like it =] ZildjianRocker May 9, 2013 07:13 am I love GD and the trilogy with all my heart :) and I'll always love the fanfiction community too... I just have less time for it these days sadly. Good to see you back Trestein! Trestein May 9, 2013 03:31 am Yes, the shrinking number of fans. The trilogy and Billie's issues really didn't help. I also liked the trilogy! It had a strange sound. I can't quite explain how i feel about it. PrettyVacant May 8, 2013 07:34 pm *trilogy* PrettyVacant May 8, 2013 07:34 pm And to cap off my rant, I'd like to add that when BJ mentioned wanting to do another concept album, I cringed. Not that I don't love AI and 21CB, but I was happy to see them move on for the tr PrettyVacant May 8, 2013 07:31 pm But even lots of hardcore older fans didn't like it. Which isn't really surprising as much as it is disappointing. PrettyVacant May 8, 2013 07:31 pm I mean, I think that the trilogy, while awesome, did not appeal to new fans. And Billie's incident didn't really help. I am in the camp that thinks the trilogy was the bomb-diggity PrettyVacant May 8, 2013 07:28 pm @Tre: I agree, but I think that SR will be around for quite a while. Though I will say that my biggest fear is the shrinking number of GD fans in general. Trestein May 8, 2013 02:14 pm :( I always fear for GD fanfiction. Without Sullen Riot, there isn't anywhere else dedicated to that writing community. Evenstar606 May 8, 2013 02:12 pm Things have been quiet lately. Trestein May 8, 2013 02:11 pm :O I'm excited now! I wonder how they'll make this one, and they'd better make it for PS3! How have things been around here? Evenstar606 May 8, 2013 02:11 pm Though I still love Sims 3, so I hope my computer has room enough for both. Unless Sims 4 is totally awesome, then I'll just play it lol. Evenstar606 May 8, 2013 02:09 pm Pretty good! They just announced Sims 4 is coming in mid 2014. Trestein May 8, 2013 02:07 pm Hey! I've been great, thanks. Slowly making my way back into the fanfiction world. I LOVE Sims 3. I play it on Wii. How have you been? Evenstar606 May 8, 2013 02:05 pm Hey Trestein! I haven't been on in the evenings, playing Sims 3 instead. How are you??! Trestein May 8, 2013 01:47 pm No updates this week, le sigh. Continues to talk to oneself in the shoutbox. Hey Trestein, how's it been? Oh, it's been good, thanks. How about you? Yeah, same ole', y'know? Are you Bi Trestein May 8, 2013 08:11 am Liven up, SR.
D: kkthekat May 7, 2013 06:17 pm @AshtreeTherapist That sounds like it could be cool. I love Homestuck, and your description is pretty accurate, haha Trestein May 7, 2013 03:35 pm :D BillieMikeTreSis13 May 7, 2013 03:17 pm HAAAAAI Trestein May 7, 2013 11:34 am Ohai thur, Sullen Riot!! How has everyone been ?? AshtreeTherapist May 5, 2013 10:02 pm It's a webcomic. I'm gonna regret saying this, but you should check it out if you have many hours of free time. Just Google "Homestuck" or "mspaintadventures" and..... yeah PrettyVacant May 5, 2013 09:55 pm I guess I'll have to take a look at it on like Wikipedia or something. Is it animated or live action? AshtreeTherapist May 5, 2013 09:48 pm It is the crackiest advventure one can ever embark on. The Creator, Andrew Hussie, has killed off just about every character at least once. And its LONG. tess em May 5, 2013 09:41 pm I love Streetlight, I've seen them a few times. Lost 20 pounds dancing in the crowd lol PrettyVacant May 5, 2013 09:27 pm @Ash: I have absolutely no idea what Homestuck is. I've heard of the fandom on other sites but otherwise, I'm clueless. AshtreeTherapist May 5, 2013 09:25 pm Hey. Are there any Homestucks on here? Please don't flog me for saying this, but how would everyone feel about me putting a HomestuckxGreen Day crossover on here? Hippomusic May 5, 2013 10:49 am Yeah, there new album is called "The hands that thieve" and from I've heard of it it's frickin awesome :D ZildjianRocker May 5, 2013 08:48 am I remember listening to them when I was at uni. Are they still releasing new material?! I used to play drums for a ska punk band back then and we covered one of their songs :) Hippomusic May 5, 2013 08:13 am Any of you guys listen to Streetlight Manifesto? They are like my new obsession right now, it's ska punk, so imagine a punk band with an incredible horn section playing the lead PrettyVacant May 4, 2013 12:21 pm Ash, you beat me to it! May the Fourth be with you all! AshtreeTherapist May 4, 2013 11:21 am Happy birthday, Mike! Hippomusic May 4, 2013 09:42 am Hey Fallen :) FallenSkulls May 4, 2013 09:02 am Hello SR. I know I haven't been around much recently. )= ZildjianRocker May 3, 2013 08:47 pm Haha, we do Evenstar606 May 3, 2013 01:03 pm We get into some interesting conversations about life on here lol. ZildjianRocker May 3, 2013 04:52 am Agreed! smug judgemental religious people, nothing worse. I haven't seen the tabloids but I love katy perry she's great Evenstar606 May 3, 2013 03:53 am I know >.< Those type of people piss me off too. People who use religion as a weapon are disgusting. PrettyVacant May 2, 2013 09:44 pm Those are the kind of people that really upset me. They think they're so holy, but they are the ones who truly have their priorities out of sync and should be ashamed PrettyVacant May 2, 2013 09:43 pm If you believe the online tabloids, I have to say, I feel sorry for Katy Perry. Her own parents are calling her a devil child. Yet they're asking for money so they can go to Switzerland Evenstar606 May 2, 2013 06:40 pm Catz and I are making cupcakes on Saturday! PrettyVacant May 2, 2013 06:08 pm There is truly no greater joy than cupcakes. Also, I feel like I'm never on anymore. But school is over now so I'll probably be on more often. I miss y'all! Evenstar606 May 2, 2013 05:40 pm @ZR: I just listened to 'Eleanor Rigby' last night. So awesome. 'Let It Be' is my most favorite now, though. Love that song!! Evenstar606 May 2, 2013 04:59 pm Hi Free Falling! I've never made no bake cookies before, but I know you can find recipes online. I was thinking about making some too. ZildjianRocker May 2, 2013 04:02 pm Love the Beatles even! Free_Falling1992 May 2, 2013 01:17 pm Also, hi. lol Free_Falling1992 May 2, 2013 01:08 pm Has anyone ever tried no-bake cookie dough? Evenstar606 May 2, 2013 03:13 am Not a fan of their psychedelic stuff, but the rest is awesome and I'm finding more songs every night lol. Evenstar606 May 2, 2013 03:12 am It's becoming more apparent that a $25 iTunes card will not be enough for all the Beatles songs I discovered in the last few weeks. I'm up to 24 songs I love so far... Evenstar606 May 1, 2013 10:00 pm Good! How are you, Color??? colormestupidx May 1, 2013 07:43 pm how's everybody? popface12 May 1, 2013 03:01 pm yuppppp ZildjianRocker May 1, 2013 07:35 am @Even Absolutely true :) Evenstar606 May 1, 2013 04:00 am @ZR: Thank you so much! I've been around other kids with disabilities before, too. And I know they've touched others lives in their own way. They can teach us a lot about life. ZildjianRocker May 1, 2013 02:06 am You are are so smart, level- headed and thoughtful and it's ridiculous to say you aren't contributing to the world. That's what I think! ZildjianRocker May 1, 2013 02:05 am @even I totally agree with you. Having a job does not = productive. I work with autistic kids and they have a lot to offer the world even if they never have a 'job' Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 11:15 pm Anyway...that's my rant for the night lol. Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 11:14 pm My parents worry about that all the time, which is why my mom is helping me get to the point where I can handle things when her and dad are gone. Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 11:13 pm I understand the point behind the article though, exploring other options for those with disabilities, so they can be independent and taken care of after their parents are no longer around... Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 10:52 pm I don't have autism, but my life is much the same as theirs in that aspect, that I still have to live at home and don't have a "productive" life... Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 10:50 pm I just hate it how some people view disabled people as "unproductive in society" just because they don't have a job. There are other ways to be productive, aren't there? Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 10:49 pm @ZR: the exact words of this article were "aren't productive in society" It was an article about autism and how those who have it don't have many options after high school. ZildjianRocker Apr 30, 2013 10:09 pm @Even - who calls it that? What do they mean by 'do anything'? ZildjianRocker Apr 30, 2013 10:08 pm @Zgreer, I can imagine. Haha, I love that man. zgreer Apr 30, 2013 08:09 pm ZR and donttestme - thanks! I think I might start sobbing too, if I got any closer. Seeing Billie chomping on popcorn just about did me in! Evenstar606 Apr 30, 2013 07:50 pm Apparently if you're disabled and don't do anything after graduating high school, they call that "falling off the cliff"...as in falling off the face of the earth I guess. donttestme Apr 30, 2013 03:13 am @zgreer you lucky bitch! I'm so happy for you! :D donttestme Apr 30, 2013 03:13 am I'm a great mazochist donttestme Apr 30, 2013 03:12 am Halfway to Anywhere by tess em. I read that fic a year ago and it completely shattered me to pieces but... Guess what I just finished reading... ZildjianRocker Apr 30, 2013 12:22 am Haha, good work. Yeah, they must get sick of all the attention sometimes. I commend you for remaining so cool though, I only met them once and I accidentally started crying. Ha! zgreer Apr 29, 2013 11:03 pm No, I just feel so badly for them, being besieged everywhere they go! Tre was at the after-party, though. I did some serious observation! ZildjianRocker Apr 29, 2013 04:22 am Aww, that's awesome zgreer I'm thrilled for you. Did you go say hi?? zgreer Apr 28, 2013 08:17 pm @FallenSkulls Hey! I think I'm still in shock. I went to the Newport Beach Film Fest and saw my heroes... sitting 2 seats behind me! Was very difficult not to stare! *dies happy* Hippomusic Apr 28, 2013 08:22 am Have you guys seen the vids of 2CELLOS covering Green Day songs? It's pretty freaking cool! FallenSkulls Apr 28, 2013 01:11 am @Zgreer: How are you? Glad to see you have a new chapter! I'm going to read it soon. FallenSkulls Apr 28, 2013 01:06 am @Syn: I remember when there was a lot more Trillie being posted here. The tide seems to have shift toward Bike as of late.

[Billie Joe on Green Day slash fanfiction] "Tre reads the dirty ones. I've read a few. It's flattering and sort of weird at the same time. I don't really know what to think about young girls thinking about old men like that. But the ones I have read were very well-written and as long as kids these days are still being creative and writing, then I think it's cool."
