This isn't any new information or anything exciting.
But it's really been bugging me and I can't figure it out.
Who is the actor who plays 'The Patient' in the video for WTTBP?
I was thinking it was Eric Bana... but I'm not too sure. And I don't think someone of his status would be in a video like this.
But does anyone know?
so this community is for conspiracy theorizing.... right?
Well I have a conspiracy for you.
Bamboozle left is coming up, October 14 and 15th to be exact. I got tickets a while ago, and i'm pretty stoked...anywho.
Riot Squad Records is a sponser. Kinda random, especially considering not of the acts signed to Riot Squad are play (at least as far as I know). This is where the conspiracy kicks in. On the Bamboozle Left website it says: "Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes have been traded to Saturday's line up for an undisclosed artist and special guest..."
AND OF COURSE, like any good obsessive little fan, my braind immediatly jumps to the possibilty that My Chemical Romance my play. Riot Squad is Brian's record label, correct? It was said that The Black Parade was signed to Riot Squad, suspicious!
Possible? Completely and totally impossible? Talk to me! Calm my troubled mind.
Just saw the Welcome to The Black Parade video on UK MTV2 Spanking New Music about 10 minutes ago. So keep an eye for when that comes on.. its a few times a day, I think.
I'm excited to see it, but.. it's still a Sam Bayer video.
Band doing performance only? Check. Random other people doing the acting parts? Check. I thought/hoped Gerard would play The Patiet. Shot in his dirty airplane hangar with an inserted background? Check. Scratchy, 'old-looking' film quality? Check.
There were even a couple of details that he'd used before in Green Day vids. Like the 'main character' seeing the band on a TV screen, like in Jesus of Suburbia, and this sort of motion thing, you can see it most clearly in this shot of Bob.. it wasn't exactly slow-motion or fast-motion, it was just a weird kind of robotic motion that's clearly done post-production, but I've seen him use the same kind of movement thing on Green Day.
Did anyone else notice any other Sam Bayer trademarks?
I like the black-and-white though, it sort of works, and I mean obviously they look cool playing at the front of the Parade and all. I mean, obviously I like it. It's MCR.
I just think Marc Webb could have done it better. *sulks*
Sam really seemed to like Bob, though.... loads and loads of close-ups of Bob, like.. more than anyone else in the band besides Gerard. Hee hee.
Hey peoples - i am looking for images of MCR as the Black Parade. i am finding it hard to find these newer images of MCR - Im attempting (now I have time off) to work on new avatars/banners etc- and would really like some help!! Thanks guys.
So has the new album (the actual album, not just the random live songs etc) really not leaked yet, or are people just not admitting they've got it or something? I mean, it just seems like albums tend to leak about two months before they're set to release so it's a little weird that I haven't seen it anywhere yet. Do you suppose they're just taking super-duper-hardcore extra measures to make sure it doesn't leak?
You know how there was the elusive 'Father' which now doesn't seem to exist as a track? A lot of people thought it was the song which we now know as 'The End', but I don't know why.. All I know is the band at one point said something about a song called Father, and it's now apparently non-existant.
I reckon I have an idea of what the deal is.
Most of you would be familiar with American Idiot, I assume.. you know how some of its longer tracks have many different parts?
"Homecoming" I. "The Death of St. Jimmy" II. "East 12th St." III. "Nobody Likes You" IV. "Rock and Roll Girlfriend" V. "We're Coming Home Again"
It's one track, but the song has parts.
I think 'Father' might be the slow intro part of Welcome To The Black Parade? And even if it's not, maybe more than one of the new songs is epic and has various 'sections' like above?
Thassa right folks, MCR is in the September 22nd issue of Entertainment Weekly (Jay-Z on the cover), TWICE! The first is an amusing little piece on how to "Get The Look" of The Black Parade... SEEN HERE The second mention is that they're the number two most anticipated release this fall...or...I guess technically the second most "Must Have" record this fall (since the issue is "The 25 Must-Have Albums - Fall Music Preview")... SEEN HERE I bet if everyone wrote letters in full force (mind you, nicey-nice; not "FUCK JAYZ MCR ROXORZ!!!") about how happy you are to see the boys in this current issue, maybe it'd help snag them a real INTERVIEW in EW for once...a simple "I just picked up your current issue and saw My Chemical Romance...I absolutely love them and I'd LOVE to see more" type letter would suffice. Hell, tell 'em why you love MCR, tell them about how excited you are for The Black Parade, just tell 'em you appreciate their coverage and would love to see some more. I've been subscribed to this magazine for years and it's rare I see anything on the band. I'll include their address at the bottom of this post (hint hint).
I'll leave the scans on my site for a while, but if you want to save them for good, I suggest you buy the issue. Feel free to spread the links around!
