Anti-teenie Movement

Recommended Posts

...I think "teenies" should be allowed, but I also think that some people take it WAY too far. It's a tough line to draw, because fans should be able to enthuse however they like, as long as it neither hurts nor offends anyone else... Personally, I was a "teenie" at one point, but I wasn't abrasive. I think a love for MCR is wonderful, and it should be expressed, just as long as it harms none!

Teenies are actually the reason I avoid places like MCR's official YouTube. Have you guys seen the comments on those videos? //shudder//

Ugh, if I see ONE MORE comment about how MCR is either "too young to be rock" or "too old to be cool", I'm going to unleash the Porn 'Stache on ALL of them.

But since you are all awesome and NOT n00by haters from the depths of the Internet's underbelly, here are cookies! *throws cookies up in the air for everybody* Chocolate-chip rain! :D

I hate fangirls.... but, uh. I kinda maybe really love Frank's pornstache... it just. Puts a rainbow over my heart and fills me with a kind of happiness one only experiences on rare occasions. Y'know, the kind that's accompanied by hysterical laughter and gasping out, "Whadda dork..."

This child has been brainwashed! * Gets kit ready for action*

Let's hope so. If LM Frank gets his minions into the Forums, who knows what sort of chaos will ensue!

Chaos could be painful. It's totally been added to my signature by the way - I was going to link, but I already have 5. While I'm one to push rules from time to time - I decided to be a well behaved little pumpkin pie for the mods :)

While you're mostly concerned with Frank's stache, please make sure other facial hair doesn't grow out either..

I've actually had someone look at my MCR posters, point to Gerard, and say, "That's Frank, right?"

Feral: No, that's Frank on the left.

"Friend": ...with the sunglasses?

Feral: No, that's Bob. And your other left.

"Friend": Oh! Wearing the regular glasses.

Feral: ...That's Mikey. Frank is the one next to him.

"Friend": You said that wasn't Frank!

Feral: *actually gets up and puts her finger on Frank* He's Frank.

"Friend": O_o I thought he was Ray.

Feral: *headwall*

That is... I have no words. Frank? Please don't ever do this again. You're beautiful, but the facial hair really looks creepy and it doesn't really suit you. At all. Stay beautiful, Frank.

I like boys who wear glasses... don't know what it is...

The worst is when you're meeting a band member, and you're the only one there and it's so quiet and lovely, then someone suddenly screams "ITS MIKEY OMG" and your awesome moment is ruined by the screaming, and i mean screaming and the running by the crazy girls...ughrgh.

I want to trip them all.

Kinda reminds me of my last MCR concert. The band did their main set, and we were all sitting around being like "O_o Encore?" Then I spotted Ray walking back on stage and I was like, "YA RAY TORO!" Then suddenly all the Fro Fans in the crowd started shrieking their brains out. It was pandefronium.

Pandefronium may just become my new favourite word. Just so you know.

It's tragic - I have never been to an MCR concert :( Couldn't get there last time they were here in Australia (and even if I could have, I was too much of a fraidy-cat to go by myself). I really wish they would come here again, it stinks that they didn't come here for their World Contamination Tour... Have you seen Ray's update on their site? I'm contemplating sending them an Aussie flag just so that we aren't completely left out!

I would love to meet these guys in a quiet setting, with no screaming fans...

I do know that they love it down there, and they know that they are loved down there, so maybe they're trying to negotiate a tour right now. My suggestion: run to every concert hall and stadium in your area and promise them muffin baskets if they let MCR play there.

Oooh! Actually, I do make some really good cupcakes if I do say so myself! I'm glad they love it here, and I was really sad to see we weren't on that list for the tour - I'm hoping that perhaps they might do some of our summer festivals next year at least! I really do hope they come here again!!! I feel so left out when people talk about their concerts, and they're a band I definitely want to see live!

Just a heads-up for when you do go to your first concert: build up your leg muscles beforehand because you are going to be doing a LOT of jumping. Also, I know it seems counterproductive, but wear earplugs. You can still hear what's going on if you're close enough to a speaker, and it keeps you from losing your hearing prematurely. Last concert I went to left me with worse hearing in my left ear. Not because of the music, but because a Taking Back Sunday fan shrieked in my ear and it never fully recovered. x_O

I agree with most of the things being said here, my question is who's to say who is and isn't a teenie/fangirl/fanboy?

Agreed.

I think what we should do is just promote intelligence. I mean, it's okay if people have fangirl/boy MOMENTS, but if that's all they have to contribute, or if they're being unreasonably/scarily obsessed or harmful, it is a problem. But the reason it's a problem shouldn't be because "we'll get bad press," it should be because we're all part of one fan group of a band we all love, and we should have some sort of care for each other, as human beings at least. We should care that there's a group who may hurt themselves because they have a harmful idea of what the music means because THAT GROUP MAY HURT THEMSELVES, not because another stupid news channel will run a segment on the dangers of "emo." That sort of scare talk to freak parents out or to demonize another artist is meaningless BS, and we're all beyond it by now, right?

I'm all for it, but there needs to be some clarification and everything should be done with kindness behind it.

(Oh, yeah, and CONCERT ETIQUETTE should definitely be....firmly suggested to those who may not know how annoying nonstop screaming can be when you're trying to hear. Or how dangerous a crowded stadium can be. There's a reason Gerard's stopped shows before to let people stand back up.)

*whispers* Psssst.

...Pssssssssssssssst.

*looks around then continues whispering* This isn't really a serious group. We're just here to make fun of the MCR equivalent of Twihards who would drain their bank account to buy Frank's underwear on Ebay and talk about how creepy Frank's facial hair gets. We respect all fans, no matter how much they know about the band or how much merch they own, so long as they're spreading the message of being yourself and not taking anyone's sh*t. Just play along.

God, just shut the fuck up, man. I thought the bullshit would have been left behind or for Myspace but I guess not. This is why the MCR fanbase is called a cult and emo. Because of all this bullshit. xoxo
