I'd like to make a note of apology for not keeping as updated as usual. My grandmother is currently very ill, and it's hard for me to keep a steady connection to the online world. Next week, I will return to my University home and things will be back on track.

For now, I still am able to update Twitter quickly. I usually post MCR news as soon as I hear about it via my @PoisonAndFire account, or my @MyChemChat account.

I hope your holidays have been great!

Unabridged Live Review/ Meet-And-Greet Recap: My Chemical Romance / December 15, 2010 / Chicago, IL

Image
December 15th’s My Chemical Romance show at the House of Blues in Chicago was the first MCR show for which I have ever not lined up at least somewhat early.

I can’t say I enjoy that not-line-waiting sensation because I do so love waiting and meeting people and feeling like I’ve been through a battle to get to the front row of a crowd. Shows become war-zones and one must fight for his or her survival. However, after figuring out that my meet-and-greet with the band would take place as the doors opened for the show made me a long wait could be fruitless.

However, there were many who braved the cold and who eventually got to wait inside for that amazing chance to see MCR up-close, including Paloma Pérez, 20, who flew in from New Mexico just for the show!

The night before, my friend and I had scoped out the venue layout and asked some questions about lining up of the security staff working at the House of Blues. We were surprised to find lone Paloma waiting outside at about 9:30 p.m. (a…

Cassie The Venomous [Dot] Com

Hello, readers!

I just wanted to check in with a little site change! It's actually not going to affect you or the blog too much, but if you'll look up a little bit, you'll see that whereas you may have seen http://venomousformaldehyde.blogspot.com before, you now see http://cassiethevenomous.com.

I've been wanting to change my URL for a while to make it easier for you guys to find the site and to make it look better on those dreaded resumes and internship applications I will be filling out soon. I noticed that many of you started calling me "Cassie The Venomous," and thus- CassieTheVenomous.com is where you will now find this blog!

No worries. All the old, familiar content is still here, and you can still find my blog under its old name.

There are a couple bugs when you use venomousformaldehyde.blogspot.com, such as the Twitter feed at the top's not showing up and the reader list not showing up on the side, but it's not so bad.

Thanks again for readin…

'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' - My Chemical Romance OUT NOW! [A look back at the Journey]

Looking for a review?
My Danger Days... album review from the California listening party on November 9.

It's been more than 4 years since The Black Parade, and we made it! I am absolutely, heart-stranglingly proud to support My Chemical Romance and to have been able to write about the creation of this masterpiece through every step, misstep, stumble and take-off leading to today's beautiful apex! Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys is out now!

Danger Days: The Creation as told through my blog...

I guess the lead-up to today's release kind of started in early 2009 with the release of "Desolation Row" for Watchmen. After the men of MCR had been on a break since Spring of 2008, fans were able to get a brief glimpse of them immersed in the comic world the band has always so loved.

Within a month, reports were coming out that MCR were officially writing the new album, then suddenly they were doing interviews with MTV about their stripped-back new materi…

My Chemical Romance launch Better Living Industries Website

UPDATE (November 24 @ 11:42 p.m. EST):

I see that there's not much information about BLI out there and a lot of you are finding what you can here. I am pasting the following here from a more extensive informational post I have made about the Killjoys world. I hope this will help:

What is Better Living Industries?

Better Living Industries (Also known as BLI, BL/ind, or BL industries)is the corporation that controls Battery City. The corporation strives to bring about structure in a post-apocalyptic world. It is known for producing emotion-eliminating medications as well as every other manufactured product one can acquire in 2019.

BLI crosses over from the Killjoys world and into real life. The made-up corporation has its own  web site with products that you can actually purchase, a mission statement and a "Zone Report" in both Japanese and English.  Also, MCR takes it a step further by having changed the name under which their music is published to "Be…

The introduction to the album and the first time the listener hears narrator Dr. Death Defying's smooth Zone jargon. “Look Alive…” is exactly what you hear at the beginning of the “Na Na Na…” video, and – as you know if you have seen it – the two tracks blend perfectly.

2. “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)”
