So, I have uploaded ****Live in Phoenix. It's split into three parts, here, here and here, and can be rejoined with HJSplit. Formatted for ipods.

Tomorrow, A Dog's Breakfast, and possibly Hard Core Logo. I have them ripped, but sendspace uploads are impossibly slow at times. Maybe some more Fry and Laurie.

Comments are <3

After I posted the link to the PopPolitics article, [profile] adellyna commented to say that she disagreed strongly, and with pep. After second reading (and a third, and oh god, a fourth), I got a bit pissed off.

That people would find Pete Wentz exploitative doesn't surprise me. I don't, y'now, agree with that, because I think he hasn't crossed that line yet. I certainly don't feel exploited because I bought a clan hoodie or anything. More power to him, I say, go for what you want. And make people wear your strange bat tattoo on their clothes if you can!

What really fucking pissed me off hardcore was the casual way in which the writer dismissed the queerness of FOB as something commercial, a veneer, a show.  Like- not gay = completely straight and obviously just out for cash.  What about queerness? What about bisexuality? Where's the fucking spectrum, Mr Author Man?

Now, I am bisexual. I love boys, and I love girls. Sometimes more and sometimes less.  It never fails to irritate me when bisexual characters (like, say Alice on the L Word) are implicated to be merely travelling on the spectrum. Like bisexuality is the gateway to being fully something else. I think it is perfectly possible to enjoy kissing the same sex, to enjoy close relationships with them that yeah, maybe go farther than your usual friendship, but stop short of sex. In other words, I think it's pretty possible to be 'gay from the waist up'.  I think Pete Wentz is pretty fucking queer, personally.

As for the author wishing for some more of them fightin' words and actions from Wentz, I can't lie- I'd love to hear Pete say 'I'm all for gay marriage!' or something like that. But for me, I wish they'd been around when I was fifteen and thinking about girls. I wish that someone had had the gall to write a song like G.I.N.A.S.F.S and get the guy he refers to in his blog as his 'husband' to sing it. I mean sure, there was KD Lang or Melissa Etheridge or some shit but I was a West Coast Scottish Catholic Punk (yes, oh god, it deserves capital letters like whoa) and there was just no-one who had ever really thought to say something like that to me.

So yeah, the article just kind of stank of all sorts of privelege and shit that I am just not even going to touch, and pretty much ignored any bi/queer experience. Gay isn't a synonym for shitty, and queer/bisexual is not (should not be) a synonym for 'too scared to come out as gay'.

In other news, I got fitted for new bras.

HAPPY YESTERDAY BIRTHDAY [profile] always_august! May the William Beckett be with you! Also I am totally nearly finished the Treckett genderswap fic. Totally. Then I may need to write fic where Brendon is a spy and Jon is his bodyguard and Ryan is a total mata hari wannabe who actually works in IT. Gabe can kill you with his pinky, and Patrick is like Q and Pete is his crazy assistant.

Okay so I think Saturday deserves a longer recap, because Travis! Eliot Minor! Pete and Patrick's Love!

I totally wore the tee I bought in Paris with my clan hoodie (also my FANCY KID HOODIE ARRIVED YYAYAYAYAYA!!!) but the best tee was this guy who had a t-shirt which said 'I want 2 have Pete Wentz Babies'.
The queue was massive-luckily one of our friends had waited in line and we kind of cut in with her (I am a bad person).  They should have opened the doors earlier because they had the metal detectors, and they made us all take off our belts and stuff *sigh*.

Then we had no idea who the support band was, because originally it was supposed to be Cobra Starship, but Gabe told [profile] always_august at Decaydance that he wouldn't be there. So we were like, hmmm, surprise! It was Eliot Minor, who were actually pretty awesome. Plus we managed to be in the short girls' corner RIGHT AT THE FRONT.  So Eliot Minor, alalala, I may buy their album or something.

Then it was totally roasting, blergh, and we waited another 45 minutes or so for FOB to come out. Then they did and it was totally worth it, because PATRICK, OKAY.  He was wearing that black jacket again, the one he wore in Paris and at Live Earth and I do not know how he did it because fuck it was hot.

Pete flattered us a lot- told us he loved our accents and that Scotland always had the best European crowds (bands always tell us that, but a) they probably say it everywhere and b) we are pretty awesome). He slagged off George Bush and was unaware of our change in prime Minister. He offered us David Beckham back because he sort of sucks and doesn't play football, but misinterpreted our boos when we booed Beckham. We don't want him back, okay, keep him. He told us to 'follow the asshole American round in a circle, kind of like Tony Blair does to George Bush'. Tony Blair isn't Prime Minister anymore, Pete. ILU anyway, but if you're going to get all political, get it right plz.
Then haha, Patrick sang that piece of Akon song, and Pete was like
'I think it's really brave Patrick, that you've said you'll fight for our love.'
I laughed my head off, because Pete was just sort of all about Patrick that night in a way he wasn't in Paris. He was more relaxed, and he did the leaning on Patrick. Patrick has the same expression for Pete my mum does for Kevin- equal parts exasperation, amusement and affection, with an edge of ' I may kill you if the mood strikes'.

Okay, there are 71 entries tagged bandslash on del.ici.ous now. Time for the actual rec post I think- mostly Gerard/Frank, Brendon/Spencer or Pete/Patrick.

unequivocal by [profile] stereomer        

Been recced all over the place already but worth repeating. It follows the band right through the early days from Frank's viewpoint. (Gerard/Frank)

With Friends Like These by [personal profile] iamtheenemy        

Sometimes I get a craving for a sweet 'My best friend totally digs you!' fic. You know, where Ryan Ross tries to get Brendon and Spencer together and makes Spencer jealous by flirting with Brendon? This is that fic. (Brendon/Spencer)

The Making of Axe: The Horror of Man by [profile] provetheworst      

Game Developer AU! Will's an intern, Spencer doesn't do hugs, and Pete's no Frank Iero. (Will/Travis, Will/Adam, Brendon/Spencer)

Leaving you Alone With Me
by [profile] 3jane   and [personal profile] mimesere   

I think this fic is amazing- Pete and Patrick get married in Canada. I just love this fic. Plus, Joe and Andy are awesome in it. (Pete/Patrick)

 I've got your number one bullet right here, baby by [personal profile] supergrover24  and [personal profile] femmequixotic
This fic will kill you with the hot. Seriously. I could bang on about all the plotty stuff but seriously guys, hot porn. (Pete/Patrick)

Just close enough to touch by [personal profile] disarm_d

There are many things I love about this story, one, that it contains my panic! otp and it's well written. Two, that it has a lovely slow build up to a relationship and three, that I love the Spencer in it so much I could just keymash all over the place. Go read right now. (Brendon/Spencer)

Watercooler Romance by [profile] marigolde

I have a weakness for AUs where something extraordinary happens in an ordinary way. In this case it's Gerard and Frank, getting along with life and finding love.  (Gerard/Frank)

Close Enough For True by [personal profile] skoosiepants

It's a SNOW WHITE AU. Spencer is Snow White! A bitchy, trendily shod Snow White whom Prince Brendon has to save with his horse Mr Frisky. Why are you not reading it yet? (p.s, I am waiting for skoosie's comingoutau!, for it is sure to be awesome) (Brendon/Spencer)

Home is a name
by [personal profile] arsenicjade

This story is the prequel to Wednesday Night boys, the famous panic! hooker AU. But I have to say I like it better- because I love Frank here, and all of them.  (Gerard/Frank, Mikey/Ray)

pretty much a sex god by [profile] adellyna

Another prequel I liked better than the story! It's the prequel to the wedding planner AU,  the story of how Jon and Spencer got together. It is SO CUTE YOU GUYS OMG THE LADYBUG SHIRT.
