I cannot stop watching this video. No, seriously. Cannot. Stop. I've even downloaded it and I'm watching it at least once every time I open up my laptop. Z saying "Ladies and gentleman, Laena Geronimo" and then Laena busting out that amazing bassline is probably the best start to a video in anything I've seen recently. and that guitar breakdown, UNF. and Laena jumping up and down and shaking her hair in the background later on ♥______♥

That part at 0:55 when Ryan leans over towards Jon and they both can't keep from grinning? That's exactly what I feel like every time they do that. :DDDDD

Last but not least, who wants to join me in appreciating this GQMF?

I mean, really. )
yetunknown: (adorable)

why is this video SO. OUT OF. SYNC. Grrrr.

Very pretty tho. I appreciate the close-ups of Ryan and Jon Walker's face in general :D

in other news, I ♥ Jim Cantiello and the Kris Allen Band

my favourite parts:
2. Jim implying that Nicole Kidman is going to carry Kris away because he looks similar to Keith Urban
3. Cale talking about how they tried Googling the shirtless pics. FOR. THE. WIN.

in other news, DO NOT get a twitter. It is addictive /o\
yetunknown: (perfect poses)

this performance is FANTASTIC. Seriously, if you've never heard of The Like before, I highly recommend watching this performance and this interview.

Stealing clothes off children! Bribing them with lollipops! Having no shame at doing the walk of shame! )

I stand by my statement that they should do video interviews all the time. They're just so freaking likable (unintentional pun, sorry).

and before I forget again:

oh man, I think I squeaked when I saw this. $25k in 4 days you benches! so kick awesome!

here's another couple who are so dorky and adorable they make my teeth ache.

I was originally saving my last userpic spot (on LJ) for a Kris icon but, uh, apparently Andrew takes precedence right now?

here's what I've been watching on and off for a while now:

around 1:54, when he drops his head back? I think my mouth went dry.

speaking of hotness, I really want to be Nick White in this one. look how he oh-so-casually slings an arm around Jon's shoulders.

okay, so this post pretty much devolved into a Jon Walker (and the rest of his band) Is Hot post. I don't think many people will complain, though.


I don't think I've posted this before, even though I flailed over it months ago. But if you haven't seen Lisa Hannigan & band perform I Don't Know in a tiny room, I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to watch this video. Seriously.
yetunknown: (riseraction)

my mind's been stuck on music and covers/collaborations lately.

like Kid Cudi & Bryan Greenberg performing together, this cover of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Like (mp3), this mashup of Falling Slowly & With or Without You - actually, any cover Kris Allen has done, Adam Levine/Kanye West, etc and how unexpected stuff like that makes a song infinitely more interesting to me.

also, how an artist records their songs influences greatly how much I will enjoy it. Like this song, Heart of Mine, where you can hear all the laughter and conversation going on in the background. it makes it more intimate, somehow, which makes me feel slightly voyeuristic. I repeated that song so many times on the bus earlier today.

most of the time, I love live versions of certain songs way more than studio versions to the point that I forget what the original even sounds like (Is It Over, anyone? Andrew's guitar solo will blow your face off), especially when there's audience participation (two of my very favourite Panic performances. how EPIC was Hove Festival '08, you guys?).

I don't know, I guess I was just listening to a lot of songs while walking around and on the bus/train today. maybe i'll make a playlist for all of you later.

okay, okay. enough rhapsodizing for one day.

an aside: I bought a pair of TOMS shoes! turns out that strategy of having a celebrity promote your organization really does work. who knew, right?

(my friends are gonna laugh so hard when I wear them to class. they're pink plaid. /o\ shut up, they're cute. and easy to wear. and technically, i did a good deed.)

oh, and the World Cup starts tooooodaaaaay!!!

oh, and REMEMBER, for every one creation inspired by this prompt, the mods of we_are_cities will donate a dollar to the Greater New Orleans Foundation to help the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Relief efforts.

Oh gosh. My thoughts go out to them.
yetunknown: (i care!)

their little faces! how adorable are they? also, I hope this performance is up on YouTube.

there's a jon/ryan one too! )source
there are pictures of The Like's performance there, too.

Is it bad that I want to drive out to the mall just to get a caffeinated drink? Oh, mass-produced, cold, sweet-yet-bitter frappucinos. How I miss you.

I've recently realized that I seem to be firmly on Team TYV. I don't whether it's because Panic(!) seem to have dropped off the face of the Earth or what. but whatever, here's me trying to be a mature adult: SPENCER, WHY ARE YOU SO THIN. I am all for being healthy (fat is a good insulator and they help store some healthy vitamins, dude) but I somehow don't think you can lose that many pounds just by drumming. or maybe you can, since he apparently finished 12 tracks in 2 days, WTF.

And to balance that out, TYV want you to know that you can pre-order your album here. I know they threw in all that cool stuff with the viewmaster and beach balls and whatnot but the only thing I'm interested in are the sunglasses. I love your brains, TYV. If anybody doesn't want theirs, be sure to mail it to me!

to close off my first DW crosspost in forever,


I love how Taylor looks like a 60's hippie-reject, Isaac looks like he works for MIB, and Zac looks like a teenager. the dancing.... I don't think there are any words for that. oh, and if you have the mp3 for this song? GIMME.

(DW, I will miss you when I don't have super-fast internet connection anymore and opening one page takes me 123947 days. and yes, I am using this icon just for the heck of it.)

the tradition of getting a fever right before/after/during finals time is holding up! this time it's right before finals. which probably means I'm gonna get sick after, too. *mainlines warm water*

also, the idea of Ryan Ross realizing it cost a grand to park his car at LAX for a month after he came back is just too funny to me. Spencerrrrr, hit your friend on the upside of the head for me.

and Jon's alive!

I've just realized that I haven't had a shower in over 24 hours. geez, louise. Thankfully I haven't started smelling yet, mostly because I've barely left my bed.

Which probably led me to forgetfulness. HAPPY BELATED DEEPAVALI, GUYS.

have I mentioned that I really liked the last two articles James Montgomery wrote about Ryan Ross and The Young Veins? because I really liked it. especially this line:

"That's a whole lot of "officially" for a guy like Ryan Ross, who, ever since splitting with Panic! at the Disco earlier this summer, has made a point of living (and working) as unofficially as possible. That is to say, he's tried very hard to make it look like he's not trying hard at all."

That's exactly it, dude. I still can't quite believe that they've finished the album, all the way up to mastering it. even when I followed their progress religiously on twitter. Also, I listened once to The Other Girl and I think I like Change better, especially the mastered version. but I still want that album. He had his friends sing on his album, guys. For free! Because it was his birthday! and you might hear someone shouting Happy Birthday on the album! and him and Jon sang This Heart of Mine facing each other while playing guitar! which one of these facts excite you the most? Trick question! the answer is all of them.

what else, what else? oh, yes. FINALS ARE IN ONE WEEK. ONNNNNNEEEEE.

p.s. I need to update my icons.

eta: is it bad that I have way too many happy icons? I need a 'I am mad' and 'I am sad' icons.

also, I heard that not a lot of people were there for the young veins' listening party. not on, fandom.

eta2: new icons! one which is totally appropriate for this post.

why does my campus block download sites, whyyyyyyy??? The Young Veins, man. I need that song. NEED IT.

eta: is johnson still in The Cab? I was watching the Cancun vids and there is a distinct lack of drummers.
yetunknown: (Default)

FINALLY!! this thing has an actual chance of leaking in the near future!

also, they're doing it at A&K + Butch Walker! Thank you, Young Veins. You're making fic much more plausible.
