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.

Christian pastor #pastorsaeed imprisoned in Iran. He has been detained in Iran since the summer of 2012 and initially incarcerated in Evin Prison in September 2012. On January 27, 2013, he was sentenced to eight years in prison, reportedly on charges of undermining national security through private religious gatherings in Christian homes in Iran in the early 2000s. In November 2013, the Iranian government transferred #Abedini to #RajaiShahrprison, just outside of #Karaj, Iran. #savesaeed #Regrann

OSCAR-NOMINATED FILM ENDORSED BY ANTI-GAY HATE GROUPS

Every year Oscar nomination morning rolls around and there’s least one feature film nominee that elicits reactions of “Wait. What on earth?” More often than not it’s the Best Original Song category, and this year we got ourselves a doozy.

“Alone Yet Not Alone” is the film, and the nominated song takes the same title. It’s the story of two little girls kidnapped by Native Americans on the frontier of Western Pennsylvania in 1755, who survive the experience as a result of their devout Christian faith. It’s one of those very low-budget Christian films that are made by and marketed entirely to an Evangelical audience. According to Wikipedia, the film – which you may never have heard of – “was released on September 27, 2013 in 9 cities and was the number 1 movie for theaters in Knoxville, Tenn.; Raleigh, N.C.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; and San Antonio, Texas.”

The movie is formally endorsed by people like Rick Santorum and anti-gay hate group activists like Dr. James Dobson.
