Ok...here's the deal with AFI
as I found out about other bands...I've realized that AFI is not THE SHIT.
I mean, they are still my favorite band...well, one of them.
and they will always be an important part of me....they changed me, my music choice, they made me a better person..
they helped me keep myself up in a very tight part of my life...when I came to live here to the USA...summer of 2000
school was out...I had NO FRIENDS at all...so, I was really depressed...they helped me hold my own...and think by myself, kind of...by keeping my mind off depressing thoughts.
AFI always had a lot fans...well, when I started listening to them they had a lot fans...but I've never met, or seen one until my senior year in highschool (three years after i started listening to them)
but lately I've seen changes on AFI and its music...I still love the music...but they way they look
it's like, they are trying to attract another crowd by their look...they are not being original...i mean, davey was a freaking rip off of Glenn Danzig and now it's just...blah, he wants attention or something...he wants to impact people by the way he dresses up...
I feel is not all about the music anymore....it's about look now...
Jade Puget, he is an amazing guitarist...but it's the same with davey...why try so hard to be different??..
but the thing that gets to be...and makes me uncomfortable when I listen AFI is that I now feel like I'm listening AFI cause now they are getting famous and I can say, "hey, i knew about them when they weren't that famous...".
now there's a stereotype of AFI fans....the goth-boys-on-eyeliner-suicidal-i love Halloween-boys that look a lot like girls-I'm open minded person...
..I would be the "suicidal" type...and I really think I'm "suicidal" 'cause that's the only way to relate to an AFI song (I having problem expressing this...I'm dumb) like, being "suicidal" and listening to AFI will make it better...(I know it doesn't make sense..)
I will stop listening AFI for awhile...to see if they die...and when i listen to them again...would be like the first time...like it has happened before
this really is not a big a deal...
but the thing is that I don't feel as comfortable watching an AFI live video or music video anymore...they look soo freaking weird... the one thing that I tried to stay away from..the thing that drove me away from "heavy NU metal"a few years back...and when I heard AFI and saw the video for Totalimmortal and Days of the Phoenix...it was a punch in the face...it was awesome...
but now they are falling into the same thing....I hope their music stays as awesome...but now I heard they will experiment with electronic music...hopefully it will not be that bad....
I repeat..I love AFI....but I'm not as obsessed as before...I'm really happy that good music it's hitting the airwaves..
new fans killed AFI for me....stupid kids with their crushes on Davey and Jade....kids trying to look like Jade...
kids that think everything done by AFI it's great...they all killed AFI...
there you can watch two live videos of them...look at them and think of what I said...try and think NY yourself...be yourself..not by what you think it's the "right" way to think..
on a different note:
I think i did good on my chem test...WHOO HOO!!!>..
but I'm worried about it...I wanna know the grade!!!
I feel I'm this close to lose it....
I'm growing weaker by the hour, every hour...
I'm trying my best to hold my own..to control myself...but slowly I'm losing it...

I must say, I enjoy looking at Davey and Jade. |
Also, I don't think a bands look should define the music they make, the music should.
I agree that AFI has changed their sound a bit. It's definitley "poppier." Then again, so has Thursday, Thrice, and many other bands. It seems that a lot of good bands are switching from the more indie labels to major labels. With the change they pick up more fans, people you wouldn't have expected to see at the show. I think it's good though, the music brings people together that normally wouldn't associate with each other. I hate when bands sell out, but sometimes, in my opinion, they are just trying to advance. If every album by any given band sounded like the album before it, they would become too predictable and I for one would lose interest.
