Artyom of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk became very withdrawal and aggressive after sudden
death of his father. He would write online that beating people is fun and
everyone should try that. On 27 September 2013 he stabbed his mother six times.
After doing that he strangled his bleeding but living mother with an electrical
cord. Two days after the murder Artyom called his uncle and confessed to
killing his mother. His uncle called the police and Artyom was arrested and
charged with murder.
If I could spend my life doing nothing but going to concerts, I would be the happiest person.
My first concert was Fun. in New York City this July and it kinda got me obsessed. In August I saw the Beach Boys. In October I’m seeing Vampire Weekend. In November I’m seeing Pink.
But in 6 days I’m seeing Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco. I feel so lucky. I wish everyone could go to a concert at least once. It’s honestly the best experience ever.
I was worried at first it was just going to be like listening to music but louder and surrounded by rude people without any room to breathe. But no.
The band is so excited to be there. They talk to everyone like they’re family they just haven’t seen for a while. And you believe them when they say you’re amazing. And you feel like a part of this great big thing everyone there is. And you smile at people there because you know them in a really intimate way because you share a love for this band. And the music is beautiful.
At the Fun. concert, Nate Ruess was saying how the album was written in NYC and how he felt that it was right for them to be there. And it rained. And he said he was really glad it rained. And it felt really personal.
And I’m sorry if none of this makes sense. I just haven’t been able to put it into words. And I’m sorry it’s so long and not very well written and I really hope it doesn’t seem like I’m trying to brag or complain or whine or anything because I’m just trying to explain because maybe someone else knows what I’m trying to say. And I know most people won’t read this whole thing. I don’t mind. I just hope someone does.
I’ve never been this excited before. I’m not exaggerating, I cannot remember a time I have ever felt this way. It’s like a whole new emotion. I wasn’t this excited for Fun. because like I said I was expecting it to be kind of uncomfortable. But now I know. And I’ve been looking through pics and videos from FOB’s past concerts on here and I can’t wait to meet all of you.

Hello. Can you hear me? The doctor told me to talk into this little tape recorder. Sorry if it’s a little hard to hear me – I can’t move very far in my jacket, and my feet and chair are strapped to the floor. I’m kind of stretching to reach the microphone. Well, the doctors behind the window are giving me the thumbs-up, so I guess that means everything’s fine. High quality mic. I should probably start now, right? Yep, they’re nodding.
