My Chemical Romance Transcripts: My newest MCR Project

Loving something and being unable to access it sucks...a lot.

That is a lesson I have learned from having limited Internet access (as you've seen me whine about here every summer and winter break) when I am at home.

For a long time I--and many others--have had to deal with absolutely aching for news and information about My Chemical Romance while being restricted from it either by bad connections, language barriers or technology that simply does not aide us.

So, also for a long time, I had been planning to start an interview transcripts blog to help broaden the availability and findability of MCR information. Now that it has been populated with some content, I am sharing it here!

I will let the mission statement I posted on the blog speak to my goals and reasons behind the new project:

With a news blog and an active Twitter chat why, you would be justified in asking, would I create yet another MCR project?

It’s simple: information access.

Contest Winners Chosen!

First of all: I know a lot of you have been anxiously awaiting this announcement; so, I apologize for having taken so long! I simply wanted to make sure all of your entries (almost 160 of them!!!) were given the time and consideration they deserved.

With a little help from the lovely person who donated the action figures, I painstakingly narrowed it down to 13 final contest entries and--because they were all so good and this is a highly subjective thing--used an online randomizer to choose the top three! Winners have been contacted; so, please be sure to check whichever account you gave me as a way to reach you!

Because I have seen animosity toward winners of contests in the past, I have decided to omit the names and entries of the winners here unless they give me permission to post them.

All of your entries were astounding and beautiful. Reading them and seeing how My Chemical Romance has the ability to affect and help people on such a large scale and in so many ways often brought …

My Chemical Romance Setting Up Studio Space in Los Angeles for Upcoming Recording

In an interview with Noise11, My Chemical Romance guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero discussed some of their plans and preparations for recording in the near future.

Ray Toro said, "Back in L.A. we just got a studio so we’re kind of building that out and basically trying to make a compound where we can be creative and be there whenever we want to be."

Having their own studio space "where we can go and make music 24 hours a day," he added, may combat the looming pressures of time constraints.

The band also revealed that they have tapped engineer Doug McKean, who worked on The Black Parade and Danger Days... to help them out in the studio.

Noise11 is set to post the full video interview this week!


Here's a little fan quote from Frank Iero:
"There’s a big difference between being just a music fan or a popular music fan and you’re a fan of a band. When you’re a fan of a band you don’t have to like everything, but you have to follow them because they know b…
