MCR // Video Medley


Zuletzt, wie versprochen, etwas Blaues. Weshalb 
My Chemical Romance zum Abschluss dieser Serie gleich in dreifacher Ausführung in meine private Raritätensammlung musste:
1) Weil Gerard Way ein Universalgenie ist und die Alben seiner Band (inklusive Cover & Video Art) in sich geschlossen konzeptualisiert wie einen Comic Book-Kosmos (gelernter Comic Artist, der er ist). Sehr zur Freude des inneren Kindes, das singen will – und tanzen! – zu dieser Musik. Und diesen Bildern: 


2) Weil Gerard Way ein Universalgenie ist und aus dem Stegreif Sätze wie die folgenden formuliert: 
"If for one minute you thing you're better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about." 
(Und wer parallel dazu Lieder wie 'Helena' zum Tod der geliebten Grossmutter schreibt, einfach schwer in Ordnung sein muss. Punkt.)


3) Weil Gerard Way ein Universalgenie ist  und das, was man gemeinhin 'a beautiful mind' nennt: 
"When we first started out I had a really big issue and a lot of my loved ones had a really big issue with the fact that I was totally in pain up there and there was a time when I tried to hurt myself off stage, but I got over that. Like, you should never want to hurt yourself. You should love yourself. Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself and become a new person and I think that that is going to be a lot of what the next record ['The Black Parade'] is about, not to plug it or anything. Like, it's going to talk about dying and coming back to become what you totally want to become. We are all becoming what we want to become."
In diesem Sinn: here's to the ones we loveand may the force be with all of us in 2013!
