FINALLY...My Take on the GC Situation
My poor Blurty, I've neglected you. Please forgive me? LMAO. Yeah, Jackie and I went to TRL yesterday. We caused all kinds of mischief there. We went for GC who was stopping by but we didn't see them. Big surprise *rolls eyes*. It's okay though, I didn't expect to see them anyway. I didn't even wanna go at first but the slight chance of saying hi and just to show support motivated me. So instead of seeing GC, we saw P.O.D. WHOO! I'm so stoked about it. Gotta love Sonny and Wuv. Give it up for them. I told Johanna and she was freakin' out 'cuz she loves them. She and I have liked P.O.D. for about 2 years now. I told Jenn who was pretty surprised. Not more than me and Jackie though lol. I've been pretty...I don't know what the word is for my mood as of late. I'm not depressed but I'm not fully happy either. My emotions have been very bipolar-like. One minute I'm happy, next I'm not. I don't know what's wrong with me. Like a good example, on Sunday we went to see Johanna's friend's band Stiffler. I was paying no mind to anything. My mind was in a completely different universe. Yet Johanna (who is usually the one who's mind is on other things) was fully attentive to everything that was happening. I guess she and I switched places. *shrugs* Who knows? It ain't me, that's for sure. I just hope that things lighten up and that I get all my college stuff done with NO problems. *sigh* I'm hopeless. Anyways, so yeah, I saw the new GC video for "Hold On" and it's the SHIT!! It's very powerful and beautiful and moving and I love it. I adore it. Finally, something to shut people up! Hopefully it will do so 'cuz I'm sick of hearing people talk all this crap about GC and GC fans. People need to realize that not all of us are teenies. I'll be damned if I be put in the category of those stupid little girls who look for a piece of ass from one of the Madden twins instead of looking for a meaning behind the words that those two put on paper. If they want a piece of ass, they should go find Simple Plan because I'm sure Pierre would have no problem with lending his services to the needy. And another thing I hate is how the teenies make it seem like it's all about Benji and Joel. It's really not. It's about the BAND and the last time I checked there were 5 people in it. Honestly, I've been hearing so much about how Joel and Benji are acting like pricks and it makes me wanna give up (especially because my friends have been victims of one of Joel's "moods") but then I think of Paul, Luda and Billy and I think about how they haven't been blinded by all the bullshit. And then I realize I have to keep going. Especially for Luda because he gives the most attitude to MTV, people like him give me hope. But Billy and Paul I've heard are still sweet and that makes me feel really good because I still want my hug from him. I haven't met them yet but I really want to meet them to show that there still are REAL fans of theirs who haven't lost all hope for their sake. It's sad to see how people have given up on them and how these kids who have no idea what the hell REAL PUNK is think that they can call themselves "Punk" without being caught by kids who know the truth. It's just very sad and very unfortunate that the kids who have gone through so much and put up with all this shit from the teenies, from the media, from the mainstream and from Good Charlotte themselves still haven't gotten their chance. Kids who have been fans before "Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous" was even a thought still haven't met them and that's sad. In all honesty, I feel guilty about it because I've met the twins and I've only been a fan for a year. But what attracted me to them was the fact that they said what they had to say and didn't give a shit. To me, that takes balls and I appreciate that and I admire that. At least, I'm not all for going up to Benji and screaming, "OH MY GOD I WANNA HAVE YOUR BABIES". I'm sad about the fact that I discovered GC's music at the same time that a bunch of posers did. But I'm very proud of the fact that I'm not like those teenies. I love GC for MUSIC not for "how hot Joel is". Who gives a shit about how hot Joel is??? They're here to play music for us, not to sit around and look pretty and nothing makes me happier than knowing that I realize that when other people don't. So to all the teenies out there, I'd like to send them a message...FUCK YOU!!! You all say "GC Forever" or "I'll be a GC Fan until the day I die" but as soon as the next trend comes along, you'll be replacing Good Charlotte with another band's name when you profess you're undying loyalty to them while you run to the nearest thrift shop to copy the latest new fashion craze. And only then, the fans...the REAL, the TRUE fans will still be there. They'll still be camping out, hanging out after shows, supporting the band for good reasons and being who they are in all their glory. The glory they DESERVE.
