Music Monday: “Kill the Messenger” by Jack’s Mannequin

“Kill the Messenger” by Jack’s Mannequin

Oh my God, this hurts like hell
I had that dream again where
I was lost for good in outer space
Tell me, doctor, how to shake
A waking nightmare that is only
Worse when I am sleeping

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain…

It’s not so easy, caving in
I walked by your apartment twice today
While you were gone at work
And all the colors got so down
It’s not as cold out here
But come quick, I am losing feeling

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain, send a little rain

I’m gonna send a little rain to pour down on you
Rain that makes the flowers bloom
Rain to leave you all alone
That keeps eyelashes falling
And wishes washed away

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain…
I’m gonna send a little rain your way

Spring Break!! And WonderCon!

It’s finally Spring Break!

I feel like I have been in school for ages. And okay, for sale it’s only been two months but I could really use this break. I’ve exams galore and papers and bleh. But it feels good now that I know I won’t have to go back to school until April 1st. Now if only this gloomy yucky weather would clear up and the beautiful California sun would come back out, nurse we would be super good!

But Spring Break I’d going to be awesome. I have a lot of things planned, or so it seems and it works out beautifully for me. My boyfriend has a different spring break than me (lame) so at least I can keep myself busy!

Tomorrow I’m heading out to an Andrew McMahon concert. Andrew was the frontman of my absolute favorite band, Something Corporate, and one of my other faves, Jack’s Mannequin. I saw him last during the Something Corporate reunion tour nearly three years ago so I’m very very excited about it. AND I don’t have to drive out to LA for it either, which is a win!

Then Friday is my epic day with Cassandra Clare! I’m going to her meet and greet event, where I get to interview her! I’m excited to meet her again and to fan girl with my sister and my fellow Shadowhunter friend and all around nerd, Jackie. And I’ll have a special surprise for all of you Cassandra Clare fan out there so keep an eye out for that!

Next week I still have to work but I love my job so that’s not even a problem. But in my spare time, I’ll be working on my outfits and such for WonderCon! Friday, I’m planning on going all Ravenclaw and Saturday I’m planning on being a Shadowhunter!

Saturday they’re having the City of Bones panel and they just announced that there will be autograph signings with Cassandra, Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland) and Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood).

Sunday, I’m trying to see if I can make a whatanerdgirlsays shirt to advertise my blog for the day. I think it’s a good idea!

So come on by and see me during the con! Ill be at the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army table on Friday and you can tweet at me (@anerdgirlsays) and I’d be happy to hang out!

Oh and I got super cool calling cards for the blog and I can’t wait to hand them out!

It’s gonna be great!

Music Monday

Welcome to my new weekly segment.

This is basically a fluff piece to remind everyone that I’m here and to keep reading this blog…basically.

I just want to have an excuse to keep writing, medicine and sharing things with you guys.

So every Monday, visit this I’m gonna share a song with you guys; whatever song is in my head, viagra whatever song I just discovered, a song I liked from a TV show or a movie, whatever.

And I do love music. I mean, I’m not a music snob like my boyfriend (I so hope he’s rolling his eyes as he reads this; love you baby!) but not everyone is super musical and can play guitar and bass guitar, and drums, and organ, and piano, and some trumpet and just bought a mandolin, and harmonica, and god knows what else.

But I do love music, and there’s some seriously awesome things happening in MY music world this year.

One, Andrew McMahon of Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin fame is striking out on his own, releasing an EP and is currently on tour with Fun. (not a fan but still exciting) and doing solo shows, one of which I am attending in March.

Then…oh then, my second favorite band (after Something Corporate) announces that they are finally back together! After nearly four years of taking a break and working on other projects, Fall Out Boy is releasing a new album called “Save Rock and Roll” (insert another eye roll from said boyfriend; love you again baby!)

Picture 3

I am SOOOOOO excited. They’re going on a worldwide tour as well, and unfortunately the one Southern California stop is the same day as my brother’s high school graduation, but I am so very excited that these guys are back together and making music. I literally SQUEALED; I was so happy.

So today’s song is the newly released single from their upcoming album, Save Rock and Roll, called My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).

Enjoy :D
