The Black Mass Tour 2014: Goodbye Agony, Moving On, Apologies, and having a rocking time

The Black Mass Tour 2014: Goodbye Agony, Moving On, Apologies, and having a rocking time

me mom meet and greet BVB

How can I start this. I started this review a million times in my head but it never came out right until now. I went to see Black Veil Brides, Falling In Reverse, Set It Off, and Drama Club at the Knitting Factory(learned from a security guard it was built-in 2004 and opened in the same year) on November 8th, 2014. A day that I will never forget nor forget to remember as every ounce of that day is soaked into my brain forever. I truly grateful and thankful for it. Every ounce of it. To be alive and breathing is something I will never take for grant.

This review taking a little longer to do cause five days after my concert. I had to get major surgery to remove a hernia and appendix(Doctor told me basically my appendix was an organ bomb ready to explode inside my intestinal cavity it was that extremely inflamed from my severe stomach issues I have) that was causing me to be in extreme stomach pain. They were going to take my gallbladder out too but there was no gallstones prevalent so I must have another surgery to test to see if something is wrong with my gallbladder if there is there taking that out too next year. I live on a never ending battle roller coaster ride with my medical issues. Going to the concert was my get away from my problems and bullshit I deal with. I met A LOT of kids at the concert with medical conditions of there own. Ranging from scolisos to fibromyalgia. I gave them so many hugs and told them that their in my thoughts and prayers. Meanwhile all this medical bullshit is happening within the BVB army our own leader, Andy Biersack, stated in the new Revolver Magazine said he suffered a blood infection that rendered him to have constant pain and suffer from inflammation. Even though his dad, Chris Biersack, stated in a few tweets recently he is okay now. Andy if you do read this always know YOU aren’t alone now like you were in the past. We are all here for you dude. Health, batman, or whatever the hell you want wise. You do so much for us. Sometimes its best for the community to show its part in supporting you unconditional. In fact I say this about ALL the members of BVB really. I want them all to be healthy. Being sick is never fun. I live the life all to well and its never fun to be chronically ill.

So lets start this review. How can I really. I have been rendered speechless but now I have found the words to review it. My meet and greet went magically how I wanted it to go even though I was an awkward potato at that. All I wanted for them to hear was an “I am sorry” from a former BVB hater. But instead they got it formally. I said ” I want to apologize for being a former hater of your band” CC, Jake, and Jinxx’s faces were flabbergasted by my apology. I am very pleased to have done what I did. I made sure both ends of the table got an apology. I apologized formally to Andy and Ashley Purdy. Andy took this in glory and welcomed me “Officially” to their weird side of things. I was stunned of what Andy Biersack had to say to me. I could tell he comprehend who he was talking to at the moment. He then told me something that brought something rare out of me. He took me WAY off guard. He told me that he reads what you the reader are reading right now. I was stunned, shocked, and couldn’t come to words at them moment to thank him. Andy pulled a “Mariah Pysduck” out of me. They are rare. After he said he reads my things on this blog. I am very very appreciative and grateful of that. I then told him without even thinking that BVB should brand BVB haters in the head with “Research” on their heads. No Andy I didn’t mean cattle prodding BVB haters with that. I meant putting stickers and shit like that annoying V8 juice commercial. So Andy you are one of the very few that pulled a “Mariah Psyduck” out of me. I can say the most off the wall shit when I am very stunned as potato hearing cool shit things. All of the meet and greet experience was awesome besides my mom telling Andy he was born in Idaho. I corrected her though. My mom is new to BVB. No matter how much I try teaching her BVB facts she won’t remember them. She also told him that I share a birthday with him. I was going to tell Andy I named my cat after him but then he told me “Happy Almost Birthday” I became overwhelmed and I told I called it “Merry Birthmas which was meant as greeting to him too. I was still in shock that I apologized twice to a band that receives so much hate still for just being a band that are themselves and are the true people who they are in the public eye. So Andy that “Merry Birthmas” was for you. I hope you have wonderful “Merry Birthmas” I understand what you go through birthday wise. Haha. Pros and cons of it. All the rest of you in the band Jake, Jinxx, CC, and Ashley. I tried my best to give you all equally amount of time with me. You all have some sort of inspiration to me personally equally. I love you all. Converting to be BVB fan is the best gift I could ever give myself cause really if I never became a fan. I wouldn’t be here really. But I am proud to say this. I, Mariah, am no longer associating myself as former BVB hater or anything towards it. I, Mariah, am a huge dedicated fan of Black Veil Brides and that is the end of that. The last bits of darkness were given to BVB in a two-part fan letter addressed to all the guys. Their was a piece of paper I wanted them to destroy. It’s all the thoughts I had left and vanished with pure love for the band after I got done writing it. It wasn’t made for me it was made for them to destroy. The fate of it I don’t know what happened to it. I don’t want to know cause its theirs to keep and destroy as a band insignificance of putting a huge dent into the “BVB hater” side. Which by the way doesn’t have potatoes, porta potties, etc. BVB army side has it better and cooler. Trust me the BVB hater life is the sad life. 😉 So all in all. BVB “In the end*” got me as forever fan as they rightfully deserve. I am very proud of myself making that decision on January 27th, 2013. It was the best gift I ever received and the best thing to ever happen to me in the world.

I also want to make a side note that they went nuts over my thank you notes/letter combined into one. It was so cute and fun to see all the dudes faces in BVB light up when they saw themselves in potato form. I will never be over that and the fun I had making them was priceless. So truly it put me over the moon with this whole VIP meet and greet experience.

Now let’s get to this concert review shall we. I woke up very early Saturday. That alone is a chore for me to do cause I am disabled and I have severe sleeping disorder that makes me sleep till odd hours of the day. I just deal with my health issues madness. But my cat Loki Andy the one I named after Andy Biersack cause around the time I converted I was given this little tiny baby rescue tabby kitten who lost all its fur and was full of fleas around my fifth month after being new to BVB and the BVB army. He lived in barn and bathroom the first part of his life. My cat Loki LOVES the bathroom. That is his bedroom so I make sure he gets spoiled and has his room cleaned a lot. He is my little rock star cat of trouble. He is my little “Toilet Buddy”(referred to BVB 2011 interview done by Kerrang Magazine). My other cat Snickers despises the bathroom. lol. My cats are my alarm clocks cause I hate regular alarm clocks. Cats are cuter and you can’t stay mad for long at their annoying nature verses an alarm clock that just needs a shotgun to it. My mom and I get ready and out the door quick. We go to my moms friends and her daughter’s house to pick them up to carpool up to Spokane,WA to the Knitting Factory. During the three plus hours on the way up. My mind was going nuts cause I was the first person to apologize to BVB. I had all these mix feelings of excitement, love, passion, and happiness as well as being nervous knocking on the door. I just kept telling myself their human like me.

I hurried the hell up and ate something(lawn LOL, salad) plus hydrated the hell out of myself cause I am disabled and my body tires easily. I need to conserve precious amounts of energy to rock the hell out with BVB later on in the day. Get their and as I mentioned above I got to go in early cause I was apart of the meet and greet. I said “Hi” to all the people outside who were waiting to see BVB and FIR. I got a lot back in return. The BVB army is consisted of nice smelling again I am noting that again. THANK YOU FOR PUTTING DEODORANT ON BVB ARMY AND NICE SMELLING THINGS. I can’t thank you enough for that. It’s pleasant to smell a sweaty nice smelling person verses a sweaty BO person. I don’t judge someone though about this but hygiene is a must and BVB fans sure know it all too well.

The meet and greet gets over. I wait in line inside the building waiting line also known as Que. I am relieved to not see the see through shirt double DD see all the titties lady outside in the line. I was going to go to Wal-Mart to buy her a special bra to wear but glad I didn’t have to. There are a lot of kids at shows. Kids don’t need to see that shit. Again concert attire should be nice looking and presentable. Not be like your going to the stripper joint. But on the flip side I seen a lot awesome dressed people who dressed awesome. I don’t give a shit what one wears but there is boundary line though. Don’t dress like a stripper to a concert were there are kids in attendance. No no square. Potato brownie points to the four banana ladies who took that one Andy Biersack quote to heart and went to the show as bananas. So shout out to them. If you want to dress like a banana or giraffe and go into public I am very proud of you and cheer you on. I did see an epic Eve Black cos-player in attendance. She spent lots of time preparing her attire I could tell just for the concert she also attended the meet and greet too. Their were a lot face painted kids hailing the person that influenced them the most in the band with stitches and everything. I was going to put face paint on but I have severe hand tremors that would make me look like I dipped my whole face in black paint. So I went as a plain Jane BVB army member. I am very very pleased with how much effort people put into their attire for the BVB concert. It’s a huge event to them. BVB’s concerts means everything to us. I started already planning my next meet and greet and BVB concert next time. I plan on doing it all over again. The whole experience was just amazing.

Now I get to talk about the concert part:

Drama Club: My thoughts on these crazy cats. They are very positive force for a younger demographic and beyond. They hit really well with people who like techno, dub-step, and fast beat music. Very high energy. The songs they played were fantastic. It reminded me if anonymous had love children with Rage Against The Machine and Skrillex and Drama Club is born minus Rages political cannery. I loved their Andy Black spin-off. That was cool as potatoes to see and hear. I seen on their masks they had the “NO H8” sign glad to know they are against homophobia and all for the LBGT community. Spread the love and not the hate. This music isn’t my cup of tea but I am highly pleased with them. I can’t listen to this kind of music too much with my medical conditions so it was a hairy situation when I they started playing. I respect the hell out these guys cause they called an asshole out in the crowd. I was their just enjoying and respect them as one should(I have learned from all of my hate.) No hate from me. Their great cool cats. I would recommend their music to anyone that loves this type of music. It’s just that I can’t listen unfortunately “Fuck You, Motherfucker to my medical conditions right” So Drama Club keep working your asses off to make YOUR dreams come true(Your reading mine) and peace out from Potatoland.

Set It Off: I quite enjoyed these guys. Their bassist gave me a hug when I told him I was broke and couldn’t buy his CD. I promise you Austin. If you are reading this I will buy “Duality” and review it sometime down the road. Hold on with me as I do my best that I can. I love Set It Off’s energy. Cody’s Carson’s speech to the crowd about Anxiety was beautiful and well needed to our youth of today and everyone in between that deal with that. He is very inspirational up and coming front man to inspire a whole new legion of people to become fans of his band. His band though were crazy cool cats. Cody stage dived a few times. Making the whole floor go wild. So I am not worried at all for this band not to fall through the cracks cause they got their shit straight and I am proud to be fan just very newly. I love going to shows and discovering music that way. Its more kick ass and cooler. So Set It Off keep working your ass off and someday you can become a headliner band. Excited to see your journey to flower. All my best to Set It Offs future.

Falling In Reverse: I was hesitant for this band 100%. I had mixed feelings about their music and what Ronnie Radke is as a musician. But at the end of the day he earned my respect for stopping the show to see if a little dude was okay from getting hit crowd surfing. He asked him if he needed back surgery and if he was alright. After that I knew all that bullshit from the past just needs to be in the past. People make mistakes(are only human). People deserve “Second, Third, Fourth, etc chances”. Ronnie deserves that just like anyone else. He got the crowd going for sure to the point were the security guards had to give the kids out on the floor water to prevent dehydration and people from collapsing from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Those security guards deserve props throughout FIR’s set cause Ronnie made sure the whole house was on fire before BVB. All the musicians and everyone who works for Ronnie all deserve my props for caring about the audience that night. Thais all I cared about and he earned it. So Ronnie you are breaking through the shit. If you can earn respect from me then you can slowly rebuild your reputation back again. Shit happens in shitty ways and good ways. I am proud as hell you’re getting your life turned 360’d. All I can do is send my best of wishes to FIR’s future and whatever the hell you do. You put on a hell of a show. I respect FIR. It might not be my cup tea cause some music takes awhile for me to fall in love with and some its love at first listen. All FIR can do is try to I can say that about any band really. If you try to failing gets you to success then you know you are winning the battle. Kudos from Potatoland.

Black Veil Brides: The band of the night arrives. Excuse my french even though I have been using no-no language throughout my review but I am my own writer and I do what I want to write. HOLY FUCKING SHIT POTATO AMAZEBALLS. I have had enough days this year that felt like Christmas and this was one of them Ho! Ho! Ho! “Merry Blackmass everyone” The five dark Saint Kris Kringle’s came out and gave everyone a rock n roll time. This show was special to cause THERE WAS NO BVB HATER SPEECHES AT ALL. I felt validated and honored to do a such thing. This how a BVB show should run for them for the rest of the run as band. The time for hating bands is becoming so dull and very annoying. Of course hate the band as you please if it makes you feel good to be miserable. But I believe its time to just move on from hating bands. If people sat down and did the math of how much it costs to run a band and what it takes to be in band people would be respectful. Ignorance should NEVER be celebrated. So it pleased the hell out of me that BVB was having the time of their lives doing the greatest thing they loved to do and that is to perform for thousands and thousands of people every night and sing along with the Army they created from the beginning. To experience this is truly something I will never take for grant. I am very happy to see that these guys are happy on stage. I should say stupidly happy. Which makes me even more elated cause its like seeing kids on Christmas, Halloween, or any cool ass holiday or a store that makes that person go nuts to see the person that happy. To know they have re-built their band relationship from their struggles from making W&D. To see them party the fuck up on stage and blow it up. The fact that they received something huge from me that day an apology from a former “BVB Hater” all I can say is “Goodbye Agony” and saying hello to a new chapter and new beginnings of what is in store. I am at a loss for words when It comes to their concert cause literally they fucked shit up and made sure everyone had rock n roll time. Andy also mentioned to the crowd that he appreciated the fact that people spent their hard-earned money on rock and roll show twice. Andy is one of the most sweetest people I have ever met along with his band brothers. I am living testament that all the shit against them is FALSIFIED BULLSHIT. I researched and went to the source. None of the shit that is against BVB is true. I will go to my grave and defend the fact that BVB are five wonderful dudes and care about their fans. So proud of them as band and as individuals. So really if your on the fence about these guys go to the source. Don’t be a coward and become another worthless keyboard warrior troll. My hard-working money went to a magnificent rock show to five incredible, kind-hearted, and hard-working dudes plus a huge crew who works day in a day out to put the show on for you all. So all in all, the show was BVBBOMBTASTIC and it was a killer night for rock n roll as a whole it was alive and well in that venue. I cherished every moment of it. So thank you BVB for doing what you do even though you return the exact opposite to us. Haha!. You inspire a legion of people to follow their dreams and conquer them. Mine is only beginning and I have firm believing that if I work hard enough I can feel like a rock star too. I wish you all nothing but the best. All my love and admiration from Potatoland(Idaho). Jake Pitt’s birth state. I call Jake a “Famous Potato” for a reason.

In conclusion, hating on bands is so my space. Bands either crash and burn or get wild success from a rabid fan base. But Its getting tiring to read the same ole shit everyday. Its become amusing and quite sick( I believe some extreme band haters have mental health issues its sad really). All my money. planning, etc paid off big time. I am pleased with how the Blackmass tour went. I am even more enamored how the bands made sure they didn’t hurt their fans at all. Even though it was a packed house it was a house filled with love, common place, love, bananas, Eve Black cos-player, a lot of BVB face painted kids, a lot of hardcore kids, kids with medical issues that came to prove they could go to the ends of the earth to see their favorite band, and most of all we all were their for reason, to enjoy ourselves and have fun. Cause what is life-like without the party. Life already gives us shit and things we have to deal with on a daily basis whether with be life, medical, etc. All these bands have a mission to help kids find their dreams and make them come true.

Whether your favorite band was FIR, SIO, Drama Club, or BVB. The respect levels in the room and people’s manners were very polite. I never been to a concert except to BVB’s where common manners are highly used. Doors were being held by gentlemen and some gentlemen went and got drinks for their ladies and their friends. Seen a ole grandma that was disabled rocking the hell out to BVB. As I left the concert to leave to my motel that my carpool for the night was staying at when my mom and I was walking to their car their was drunk imbecile in a sketchy bar singing karaoke to KISS’s “Rock and Roll All Night and Party Everyday” I am like well I just got a blast of BVB and touch of real life Average Joe here. Poor dude wasn’t impressing the ladies in the bar. Oh lord. What a night that was and I will never forget it for the rest of my life. I am at peace and very proud of what I did. I am excited to see BVB again sometime down the road. These guys deserve a lot of good karma in their lives. I hope that everyone in the BVB army is able to see the power that is BVB on stage cause their a presence to be reckoned with. One that is groundbreaking and hits the take over the world stratosphere. These guys are only starting. I am glad I am a long for the ride cause I believe that BVB’s future is bright of many cool things.

Thank you for reading this concert review. It means a lot that you took time out of your day to read my words. It greatly appreciated. This took awhile for me to put out cause A) I am speechless. B) I couldn’t find the words C) Recovering from appendix and hernia surgery sucks. So thank you for holding in their with me. I love you all. Your all my lovely potato gems and I appreciate the hell out of you that support me and my writing. I support YOU in whatever you do and need plus your dreams whatever they may be. All my wishes and love to you all. “Never give in, Never back down.”-BVB Always remember YOU are not alone. Keep kicking ass and eat your potatoes cause they help aid to kill heart disease in its place plus they clean your colon out too while providing nutrients and minerals. Whatever your dreams are. GO FORTH AND CONQUER.

*”In The End” is the song that converted me from being a hater of BVB’s to a huge dedicated fan of BVB’s on January 27th, 2013. The song gave me the tools to live with myself and accept myself for who I am. Its one song that is dear to my heart cause its the song that stopped me in my last and final attempt of committing suicide. BVB gave me the tools to help save my own self destruction. For all that I owed them debt. I apologized to them as the debt. I still feel like I need to pay them more but they got me as a forever fan in the end.

LONG LIVE BLACK VEIL BRIDES AND NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN.

I will never give in, never back down. I have been through hell and back medically and my spirits have never been broken even though I have “Lost it all” at times. But know we are only human. If you are going through hell know we can fight this together. No one has to be alone. Again follow your dreams and “SET THE WORLD ON FIRE”

Bad Journalism: My Views on what I have learned

I have been a Black Veil Brides fans for ten months now dating on this Sunday which is October 27th, 2013. I have NEVER been let down not even once by these guys. I would like to brings some truth to people who may be purgatory BVB haters or may not sure about BVB at all. I will allow you all to see what professional big time journalists can do to make one think of a band in such a way that later down the road can totally flip the coin on all their biased writing towards a band that they are supposed to have neutral based territory opinions about when writing for their company they write for. They can write whatever the fuck they want on their mean time on their own personal time on their own personal accounts but when its business “Come On Man”

What I am trying to portray here is the fact I read an article about Black Veil Brides in 2011 which I will make the link available in my article to read for my views that made me false hate Black Veil Brides for nothing because some asshole warrior professional keyboardist who gets paid to write words wrote his biased hate towards a band he didn’t do any extensive research on. This biased opinionated asshole titled his article, “Meet Your New Favorite Band (To Intensely Dislike): Black Veil Brides. I was in a group of people on the internet that I have discorded myself from and cut them out of my life for good now that at the time influenced my false hate on a band that I should have gave my full support to in the first place. Lesson: Don’t believe what your read on the internet kids and don’t let false negative people influence your feelings and thoughts towards a band. These people made fun of Andy at the time of his 15 feet falling of a scaffolding adventure. I was put into this conversation and tagged into a Facebook status to get my thoughts on it. THEY influenced my opinion on it. Me, being a kind caring human being by nature sent my thoughts to Andy at the time through prayer. I lied to them and didn’t want to be a part of the conversation. With Black Veil Brides fresh in my mind cause I never heard of them before went to do a little research about them. Came across this atricle: http://blogs.sfweekly.com/shookdown/2011/07/meet_your_new_favorite_band_to.php which reading it made me false hate them and join them in the BVB haters crusade. Little did I not know that 2 and some odd months later I would join the other side for good and say “Fuck YOU, Motherfucker.” to the BVB haters that falsely influenced my decision for two years about them. I cut ALL ties with them and started new. People don’t deserve to be manipulated to think a band is an made of assholes when they truly are the completely opposite.

I hope reading this article if you are a non- BVB listener gives them the second chance I did. Second chances to me are a game changer. That is another key written advice I could give to another person. I know music won’t always agree with one person. But can we all live in a world that we all respect the art, hardwork, and dedication the artist or musician puts into his or her’s craft without bullying. I want to see that world so bad. It will be one awesome place to live in.

Now its time to pick and teach some assholes that did me wrong and my thoughts on how they “You Had One Job.” to do and failed miserably at journalism. These are people with high rankings in the metal/rock social media industry. I am just going to list them and then rant in a huge paragraphs below why they suck at their job.

1. Metal Sucks

2. Noisecreep

3. Gunshyassin

4. The PRP

5. Some Loudwire posts

6. Blabbermouth

Those six metal and rock news sites filled with editors, writers, interns, media staff fail to realize their lack of decency they have for their writing. I know rock and roll and metal is supposed to be “Edgy” and “In your face” news. But the lack of professionalism I see with journalists via the aforementioned sites is atrocious. One can be in your face and edgy while being classy and have high professionalism moral values.

What I think makes a great journalist. A journalist who is on key, show great ethics, professionalism, values, and has great self worth, etc.

Here are my thoughts on what makes a shitty journalist. A journalists total point and key point in their article is to grab their audience and have the clincher in their writing. I read shit loads of writings now days that lack the excitement in that climax feeling. Like concert reviews are just written about the band but they forget about the people around them that makes IT the concert. I watched the movie “Almost Famous” where William Miller at 15 years old went on tour and was hired by Rolling Stone magazine to journal what he saw. I hope journalist can bring the feel William created in journalism in rock and metal music back again. He truly worked his ass. Instead I will give a readers digest version of a concert review: Yeah went to the concert, Band was awesome, drinks was killer, and had a great time. What the hell give more in depth featurings of how the concert went. It pays to be sober at shows and party later after the gig gets out. The spark in metal and rock journalism is gone anymore. I hope I am one of the people that can bring it back. I want to make articles that are enjoyable to read verses pieces of crap writings like all I just read was information about the band I already know about and the location of where the concert was held. Jesus nipples pro journalist out their. Write more. If you can’t dedicate your time to your craft why did you choose to be in something that does not make you happy in the first place.

Second thing that pisses me off when I read rock and metal based journalism is the lack of neutral based opinions they lack for their professional articles they write. Everything is one minded based. Nothing is open minded anymore. I love magazines like Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Big Cheese, Revolver, Alternative Press, Thrash Hits, Outburn, Metal Hammer, Scuzz TV, and etc do their ABILITY to have a open minded based magazine. I have some subscriptions through some of through magazines and I have not been disappointed by their writers one bit. They keep things fresh. But its journalists like certain people at Metal Sucks, Gunshyassin, etc with biased writers that have the lack and intentions to not go back to what they learned in college or whatever based schooling they received and used their education for the better use of the world. Are you taught ethics and journalism business 101 in college? I did research on the impending degree I am going for at my local college. YES. You are taught those. Open minded people are a lack in this world and its a cry shame for humanity.

Are journalists supposed to do major research about their topic’s they are doing the topic about. YES. The lack of research of bands now day’s and neutral based feelings towards feelings for bands is what made me into a false BVB hater. Journalist like to play with vulnerability especially young kids who will believe just about anything and young adults like me who was just fresh out in the world in the dormitory reading that article about BVB(At a time when I really could have used a bands inspiration like BVB to get me through a tough time I was going through with my medical issues). People like this beyond piss me off. Thats why It needs to be addressed now before any more kids get negatively hurt because they can’t like a band because some asshole warrior keyboardist decided to be bored and type a bullshit article about a band he probably has no clue or inclination about just to get money or some shit. Kids never believe in false articles about a band. Always check the sources and if its very offensive. Report the article if their is a report button.

The lack of research done by the gunshyassin reporter about the hollowed out staging cabs used by Black Veil Brides on warped tour was truly a huge fail in musical journalism. Staging has been used ever since concert were created. I took drama, choir, and band to learn all I could about music in high school. We used “Staging” on the stage to make it look more real and inviting. I know this old news but you sir win my loyal dumb dumb tater award. I am just an amatuear writer with all this writing knowledge on hill somewhere in Idaho and you are some idiot that thought it was cool at the time to have a lovely opportunity to go after a band you lets be honest here. You hate with a passion and you with the lack of professionalism wrote that. HMMMMMM. Something ain’t right here ain’t it. Go to the library next and read a BOOK. Maybe you will learn a thing or two about what really music is. I would suggest anything and everything in the music section at any Barnes and Noble and any major book stores. P.S. ALL BANDS USE STAGING YOU FEEL ME.

The lack of common courtesy for bands from journalist now day’s is bullshit. Like the time when Black Veil Brides won song of the year. Every metal and rock media site had a field day with it with Andy/Ashley’s legendary speech. No matter how pissed a journalist can be about that situation. The hate BVB received for winning that award appalled me. THEY shouldn’t have received all that hate. Instead they should have received rave reviews. You serious.

Journalists tend to forget that they need to leave home at home and business at business. Don’t mix those two together. Especially in their writing. Its preposterous reading something and some opinionated asshole has to put god into everything yeah CHRISTWIRE I am talking to you. Even though I see your site as just mere as laughing my ass off material in my eyes it still bothers me though because their are real articles on musicians that are so out there its just nutty than a fruitcake material to read. I feel sorry for them really. Religion should be left out of anything written professional. That’s just my view because every time someone disagrees  with someone about their religion or religions its war time. JUST LEAVE RELIGION OUT OF EVERYTHING ITS FOR THE BEST. Being secular is a need in this world. Really.

Journalists are supposed to have fun reading material for anyone to read. I don’t want to read something that is horribly boring. Make it fun to read. Where did the humor go. Out the door with all bad dumb dumb taters. “Come on Man.”

I hope you the reader got a lot off this. I hate how professional journalists can monopolize the thinking of the young(Hello blindly bullying people including children, BULLYING IS NOT OKAY PERIOD ain’t that an ethic in journalism THOU SHALT NOT BULLY KIDS BLINDLY WITH MY WRITTEN WORD, SHAME ON YOU) . Its time for true journalists like me come in and make a stand. I am very strong person that can stomach anything. I hope one day these words I am tying pay off in a huge way. Discovering my journalism talents was a mere winning the lottery for me. I want to do justice for bands that deserve to have ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT they can have. People tend to forget that we are all humans and we make mistakes but when a human goes beyond their way to hurt a person in such a way that is inhumane. Then that person is an asshole in my eyes. As Andy Biersack says in his speeches before BVB plays “Nobody’s Hero” “Don’t worship false celebrities or hero’s” I can say the same to some journalists out their. You can make mistakes but never cross the line so much so that people have to dislike who you are. I of course beat myself of for 6 months after becoming a BVB fan because of how beautiful this fanbase and band is inside and out. I never have received so much love in the course of 10 months from any band and fanbase before. Its eye opening and heartwarming. What won me over as a fan of BVB is BVB ability to be their for their fans in spirit or face to face through the power of their music and lyrics. BVB will win a world one day. 😉

It has come to end this lengthy article. Thank you for taking the time to read it. I did go into detail as to why I was a former BVB hater. I got mixed into the wrong crowd and my opinions were based off peer pressure. Life lesson. Never Give in,. Once life got the best of me and I had that cancer scare and I almost ended my life on January 27th. I was saved by the band I betrayed, BVB. Life lesson that day: Never back down.

P.S. If you are one of these high end journalists reading my article. I hope you take pointers from me as you all failed me as a rock fan looking to read your articles for leisure time. Can’t believe I spent two years of my life believing false bullshit on a band that I am glad saved my life and gave me the tools to carry on my days. Its never too late to learn.

P.S.S Love a band for who they are. Don’t read what a media asshat says about them. They are your band. Love them with all your heart. They gave you the tools to live and breathe again. Don’t turn your back on a band because of the media. False media people are dumb dumb taters. Never eat or associate with a dumb dumb tater.

IF WE STAND TOGETHER WE WILL BE UNBROKEN, NEVER GIVE IN, AND NEVER BACK DOWN…..
