OMG you guys, yesterday was just about the best day of my life. I got to Sarah's on Friday night and we hung out and watched "Bad Education", an Almodovar film which is amazing and I MUST buy. We also headed off to the O'Hare Oasis to get Sarah's ticket, and it turned out that Miles couldn't make it to the concert so I used his pit ticket and sold my lawn one. OH MY GOD, I was so lucky. When we woke up Saturday we went to Panera and got some food, and then got ready for the concert and went. I wore bright colors because I wasn't feeling the black, so I felt a bit out of place, but I got a kick out of seeing all the angsty 16 year olds in their eye liner and black shirts etc. Oh to be young again. :-p

Anyway, we got there super early, when only the revolution stage bands were playing. Sarah and I didn't really want to see any of them, but we were in luck because Kaitlyn and her friend and boyfriend found us and we hung out for a while before going to see Mindless Self Indulgence. They were pretty good but I could barely see them due to the mosh- I did get a few glimpses of Lyn-Z. Then we headed over to the main stage and I sat with Kaitlyn on the lawn through Julien-K, who were ok. Then Claire came and we all sat together through Placebo, who were also pretty good. After that I decided to head into the pit. I was there for HIM, Taking Back Sunday and OMG MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE WHOM I LOVE.

The pit was no problem at all. I was worried I was going to get crushed, but no one was that crazy for HIM and by the time Taking Back Sunday started I had no only wormed myself all the way up to 3 PEOPLE BACK FROM THE BARRIER HOLY SHIT, I was way on the left side so I only had people to the right of me. Being on the left was also amazing because that's where Frank from MCR plays. More on him later. Taking Back Sunday and HIM were really good, but it was MCR that I was really excited about and holy SHIT did they deliver. I'm sort of wondering if maybe I took too much time taking picture and not enough time just drinking everything in.... so I'm just going to have to go to another of their concerts, hee hee hee.

I've been to concerts before, and even for bands I like I'm hyper aware of the time and how long it's been. MCR played for an hour and it felt like maybe 10 minutes. My voice is all raw from screaming today. I had SUCH A GOOD TIME. Unfortunately, there were not really any gay antics, but alas and alack, whatever. Oooh ooh! Ville Valo from HIM? Was wearing a Kill Hannah shirt that *I OWN*. WEIRD.

A lot of my pictures didn't come out due to the lighting, here are the best (videos to come later):

So yes, that's MCR. It was AMAZING. AMAZING. Frank didn't run around as much as he usually does, but I think he's been sick lately- he needed an oxygen mask for a show a couple days ago, and he gets sick all the time anyway. Plus that meant he stayed near me. :-D Eeeek, I am so happy right now. I hate to say it, but I am SO lucky that Miles couldn't come and I got pit tickets!!

I slept over Saturday at Sarah's again, and we watched Red Eye which was bad but has Cillian Murphey in it, and now home is where I am!

Videos to come! EDITED: Here they are!
