After a 12 year run of amazing lyrics and cures for teenage angst, My Chemical Romance has called it quits. They announced this news on their website on Friday in a brief statement saying:
“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.”
My Chemical Romance.
There wasn’t any band related squabble which was the best part of this news. It’s simply time to move on to bigger and better things. The lead vocalist Gerard Way just recently did a mashup with EDM favorite Deadmau5.
“I’m Not Okay” was one of their best singles and is definitely a song we can’t stop listening to because, the fact that MCR is over is devastating and simply not okay. Since we can’t do anything about it, we’re just gonna drown our sadness with their music. Hopefully in the future we’ll be seeing more of their individual works.
Times are hard for the average American these days. So finding the newest fashionable items can be a strain on your bank account. When it comes to the latest fashions I’ve always wondered this: Why buy a 300$ shirt from some top designer when you can find the same shirt from a lesser known brand for a reasonable price? If there’s one thing I’ve learned about commerce is that even if its from a designer label, you can ALWAYS find the same thing for a cheaper price. The other day I went on a bit of a fashion haul to show you what I mean. From cross leggings to spiked headbands, take a look at the items I bought and the comparisons I’ve used from some well known retailers.
Cross leggings: I got theses nifty things from a local store called TParty for 15.00$
Compare at: houseoffraser.co.uk at 23.40$ (was 39.00$) after the sale discount.
Skull Blouse: This is an item that was none of the ultimate steals. I bought this at Ross for 10$!
Compare at: Nastygal.com at 43$. Can you see the big picture?
Spiked headband: I have a strange obsession with spiked stuff. This headband I got at a store called Hottie is so me. Not only that it was only 7.99!
Compare at: Topshop’s blush spiked headband at 25$.
50’s Vintage Cat Eye Sunglasses: an excellent find for only 5.99$
Compare at: shoplesnouvelles.com’s Norma Kamali Square Cat Eye Sunglasses at 98.00$
You see. Bigger buy for your buck. I spent less than 50$ for items that would have cost hundreds somewhere else. Don’t let the recession get you down, there’s a new bargain hunter in town!
