Tänään on Joshin 21. syntymäpäivä, oikein suuret onnittelut meiltä kaikilta!
Paramore on soittanut Twilightin soundtrackille julkaistavaa Decode kappaletta soundcheckissään. Tästä voit kuunnella Decodeksi huhutun kappaleen.
Paramore julkistaa uuden laulun Houkutus (Twilight) elokuvan soundtrackille! Soundtrack tulee kauppoihin marraskuun neljäntenä!
Viime viikolla, Williams mainitsi blogissa että hän ja muut bändin jäsenet ovat Nashvillen studiossa työstämässä uusia lauluja jotka saattavat päätyä Houkutus-elokuvan soundtrackille – ja nyt, MTV:n uutiset voivat vahvistaa että mahdollisuuksista on tullut totta. Paramore tulee olemaan osa Houkutusta. Heidän uusi laulunsa “Decode” (avata/tulkita) tulee olemaan elokuvan tunnuslaulu ja bändi aikoo julkaista siitä uuden videon tänä syksynä.
“Houktus on ensimmäisiä kirjoja joita luin. En uppotunut Harry Potteriin vaikka rakastankin elokuvia. Houkutus herätti huomioni ja myös piti sen. Olen todella innoissani nähdessäni kirjan muunnettuna elokuvaksi ja olen innoissani myös siitä, että bändimme tulee olemaan osa sitä ilmiötä.” -Hayley
Valitsin nimen ‘Decode’, koska laulu kuvastaa kasvavaa jännitettä, vaikeutta, vihaa ja hämmennystä Bellan ja Edwardin välillä”, hän sanoi. “Bellan mieli on ainut jota Edward ei osaa lukea, ja minusta tuntuu että se on iso osa ensimmäistä kirjaa ja yksi esteistä voitettavaksi. Se on yksi jännite, joka tekee tarinasta vielä paremman.”

musiikki: mitä ikinä hannah kuunteleekaan huoneessaan. alphabeat??
i one of those people that keeps everything. ev.ree.thing.
total pack rat. i will find a shirt or pair of pants that i know i hate but tell myself that it’s quite possible i could need them again one day… for something! or i’ll find a shred of an old scarf or a piece of some old technical object and be like “oooh i could totally make something out of this!!!” but not anymore folks… that’s the old me. i just ridded my life of about 8 bags – extra large garbage bags, to be exact – of crap. my room is live-in-able once again.
it feels so good to get rid of things that kinda mattered once. i mean, what’s the point of keeping them??? just cause it mattered once doesn’t mean it’s still making a difference… if anything it’s just weighing you down.
i spent the last week in meridian, ms. my old hometown. saw some old friends, some family. had a lot of serious down home country cookin! i denied myself the sweet tea, though, due to the fact that i’m really trying to pound the h2o… plus, my mom’s sweet tea is the best anyways! it was nice getting away for a little bit but it’s even better just sitting around my apartment. all organized feeling and stoked to have a place to call my own.
i bought the new gym class record. yeah i know i’m a little late… blahhhh. it is deeee-licious. fergalicious, even. jk. but for real… it’s great. i don’t remember song titles very well but “cookie jar” (i think i got that one right) and whatever the last song on the record is called rocked my world. i think travis’ lyrics have always been really creative. i remember when we opened for them and FOB and the academy is… oh and silverstein too! the FBR and friends tour in 2005. so much fun. “taxi driver” was the song that really got me into gym class. check it out just in case you never have before.
“Taxi Driver” by Gym Class Heroes
I took cutie for a ride in my deathcab
She tipped me with a kiss I dropped her off at the meth lab
Before she left she made a dashboard confessional
And spilled her guts in cursive but whats worse is
I could still see her bright eyes like sunny day real estate
Oh my and in a funny way the ceiling tastes
So high but no chance
My little chemical romance left a bad taste in my mouth
But I approached her like hey mercedes why the long face
Why you cryin? theres no need
Just put on this coheed and fallout
Boy meets girl jimmy eat world
But Schlep eats pills till hes all out
Not once not twice she was thrice times a lady
Mackin on brand new, but I had to
Bounce over to the postal service to
Pick up these pills that take care of my nervousness
And all the way I saw planes and mistook ’em for stars
She played games but she took em too far
At the drive in
Watching soft porn and you can tell
By the trail of the dead, that there was somethin in the popcorn
I hop in my cab destination midtown
Just to get up with some kids that like to get down
I’d made my rounds and that was that
In between the frowns and scraps and heart attacks
And I remember I seen her ass in early november
On a Thursday taking back Sunday for a refund
She shot a wink like no hard feelings
Then she jetted to brazil man them pills had me spun
This is the story of the year right here
This is hot water music
Put ya ramen into it
alright… i think i’ll get some sleep now! i’m not on tour, i should be trying to follow a decent sleep schedule. GOODNIGHT NEVERLAAND!
hayley (“i wish i was a little bit taller, i wish i was a baller).
sijainti: blackbird studio.
we have officially made it home. i got home late late last night… but still in time for a waffle house stop and a midnight grocery run with my roomie. apparently, i’m cooking dinner tonight. which is a scary thought. it’s good to be home!!!
so, what did you guys think of the vma’s? i heard a lot of people saying that they didn’t actually enjoy the show from television but i will say that being there was a trip. i even congratulated britney face to face! i was so stoked! she looked gorgeous and it was nice to have the biggest female pop artist back in the game. i’m ready for her to take over again, man. no shame. let’s see, what else happened? oh, yeah… we got THIS close to winning a vma and being presented an award by slash and shia lebouf. wow. i was actually rooting for slipknot. those dudes sat in front of us during the show… wouldn’t want to ruin their rep but, i gotta say, they were the nicest guys. the whole night was insane. very surreal. in a different way than the grammy ceremony. the grammy’s felt very high society, much classier – rightly so. the vma’s were like going to the most ridiculous prom with the “coolest” people dressed up for the occassion … millions of different groups of popular kids. not like high school where all the popular kids hang out together. just tons of popular kids, haha. and there we were smack dab in the middle of it all! it was a blast. obviously, for us, the best part was performing. it actually felt like a real show. familiar faces all lined up around the stage, everyone was singing along. it ruled. my yellow pants even made a come back! so, the night ended with a tuna melt from swingers and a tall glass of water. the guys and i didn’t eat the entire day, so by the end of the night i was beyond starvation. of all the ways we could’ve gone out… after a year and a half of RIOT! i couldn’t have come up with a better exit. playing the vma’s AND a tuna melt?! YES PLEASE!
we are back home. recording again for a possible shot at the twilight soundtrack! the rumors are a little less than true but a little more than a lie. today we are at blackbird studio in nashville… it’s crazy to me that we’ve never actually recorded anything but demoes in our hometown. both our studio records were done in pretty random places. florida and jersey. i guess florida isn’t that random considering we moved there to be close to fueled by ramen. that was before FBR blew up and got offices in NYC. either way, it’s nice to “work” from home. if you can even consider this work.
i was listening to piebald last night. one of my favorite songs by them is “the monkey versus the robot” off their record We Are The Only Friends We Have. i hadn’t listened to them in a while and hearing the lyrics after getting home from a crazy tour and an even crazier week in LA made me even more grateful to live the life i do. i’m gonna post em so you guys can read em. i think everyone should be constantly encouraged to try to live a life they dream rather than settling for something they know is mediocre or that they don’t truly enjoy. not saying it’s an easy thing to do… it can suck getting to that point but it’s worth every ounce of everything it takes. here are the lyrics, so you can see for yourself:
PIEBALD “THE MONKEY VERSUS THE ROBOT”
I know a guy who lives just for the weekends.
He says he’s tired a lot.
He says there should be five days of weekend
instead of five days of work.
And I remind him we get old and retire.
Too old to do anything but golf.
When you’re young you’re in school or in the workforce.
Let’s make old people work. That’s a joke.
We got a job to do and this is it.
I know a girl who works in an office.
She says she has no time for herself.
She says other than that everything is fine, everything is fine.
I remind her everything’s not quite fine.
Maybe it’s OK or even worse.
Work should not control our every minute.
Eat to work. Sleep to work. Live to work. Work.
We have the best job ever. Yeah we really got lucky.
We’re nobody’s robot. We’re nobody’s monkey.
ps. don’t forget to buy the record if you like the song! :)
