erilyn: gabe and mikey's hips (fob-pete)
Hallelujah, my Firefox has decided to start displaying LJ again correctly (it wasn't threading comments properly, which made them virtually unreadable). I don't mind occasionally using IE, but I'm so glad to switch back.

Another interesting quirk my Firefox has (or my lj layout, I don't know) is with embedded videos. I often have to go into someone's post to see what video they're actually trying to link to, because in my friendspage view, it'll display a video that someone else posted and I watched. A week ago. And since then, every video will display as that one. So for ages, I was getting cognitive dissonance everytime because it appeared that non-pop people kept posting baby BSB footage. But no, they were posting something else, but it'd display as that.

So this afternoon, I was very confused (but amused!) that Travis was posting that a typical Saturday for him was...a video of The Cab from SXSW. Of course, it turns out that a typical Saturday is actually watching Eddie Murphy with Hemingway, so that's sweet too. I'm a little confused by his post before that - was the fire in his room in Pete's place? Is Pete a pyro who tries to lure friends into having to share his bed by setting fire to the guest room?

Watching behind-the-scenes videos from FOB tours often makes me feel like I'm watching the sado-masochistic love affair of Charlie and Dirty. "C'mon, just one punch".

Today, [livejournal.com profile] iibnf and I checked out a cool little exhibit about the poorly-named Rum Rebellion against Governor Bligh. Why that gets the focus, when the trigger was actually about property rights (an even more quintessentially Sydney obsession than booze), escapes me. The Moran Portrait Prize and Photographic Prize exhibits were pretty good too. Then we visited [livejournal.com profile] tapedeck, and then had a little yum cha. Oh, and we accidentally ended up in a St Patricks Day picnic area (we were so confused why we had to have our bags checked just to walk through Hyde Park).

Panic are performing on SNL on April 5th, which is pretty cool. Christopher Walken is the host. Ahahahahahahahahaha, that's ridiculously awesome.

Here's a bunch of various footage and audio that I've enjoyed and thought I'd share, especially as there's a least a few of you who are also relative newcomers to the bands, so might not have seen some of them.

please don't link to the files, or link to my journal in communities/message boards. Commenting if you download is much appreciated.

+ MCR - the Attic Demos - 17.4 meg
+ MCR - Astro Zombies (Misfits cover) - 3 meg

+ Crossover Interview of Awesomeness - 43 meg
Alex Suarez, Ryan Ross, Travis McCoy and Mike Carden. Together. Being awesome. Talking about underage fans, their future offspring forming bands, and Gabe's nipples (amongst other things).

+ Gerard impersonating Ray - 4 meg
Gerard tries his best mockery. Mikey reacts with an eyebrow raise.

+ Gabe and Travis - 2.7 meg
Hanging out in Gabe's place, mocking Fall Out Boy.

+ Pete on FUSE - 45 meg
from early 2006. Steven's interviews are always worth watching.

+ FOB Rock Sound TV Part 1 - 40 meg
+ FOB Rock Sound TV Part 2 - 11 meg
Some good one-on-one stuff with Patrick and Joe (who gets to draw stuff). I'm guessing they realised Andy doesn't say much, as they interview him and Pete together.

+ FOB Rolling Stone covershoot - 7 meg
footage of the photoshoot (boys playing with lightsabres *g*) and some interview bits (including Patrick singing "Almost Like Being In Love").

+ TAI - Slow Down (live, with bonus Pete) - 39 meg
Pretty good quality, from Warped 06. Pete comes out to sing (that should possibly be "sing") with William.

+ Panic - Rolling Stone interview - 36 meg
one of the first Panic interviews I ever saw, so much good stuff (including Ryan and Spencer's childhood misadventures). You'll probably need to turn your speakers up.

+ Panic - Live105Q&A - 15 meg
It's funny - as I've become more familiar with Panic, I'm reminded less strongly of Emmett (from QAF US) by Brendon here. Good interview from late 2006. The fan questions aren't too annoying, lots of fun stuff.

+ Panic - live concert from KROQ - 70 meg
Panic performing at KROQ's Almost Acoustic 2006.

Some radio interviews (most are from Nov/Dec 07, except the last two)
