Fanish words ....and what's left of a rant.
It's that time where I feel the need to spark some fanish words.
First of all I want to say that I am sincerely enjoying 4:13 Dream. This, Here and Now, With You, Sirensong, UTS, Freakshow, The Scream, It's Over.......see I can't even chose a favorite for goodness sakes. I love them all!
It has been such a great year for me, Curewise and I've had so much fun hanging around all these wonderful fans, anticipating the tour, singles, posts from Robert, the videography, all the youtubes, the wonderful rarites I've collected, and the now the long awaited album.
I am so in love with this band and everything they have done over the years. I've always loved The Cure, but it's different now......it's evolved into a respect and admiration that goes beyond stating that I just like the music. I pay attention to every lyric, every note, different ways that songs are mixed. I'm interested in hearing about the journey they've gone through to get where they are now, and after 30 years there's alot to collect, hear, and read! Anytime I want, I can find an interview I've never read, a song I've never heard, and a youtube I've never watched. It's never-ending....
Is it strange to call this a hobby? I hate to call it an obsession, though that's what it seems to be. I look at it as more of a passion...something that truly makes me happy. Something I can't see my life without.
Anyhow, now for what's left of a rant.....
I've heard so much negativity about 4:13 around here and on COF that it's truly bothered me. I am sorry some people didn't get what they expected from 4:13. That's truly a bummer for you, but quit putting me down for loving it. I've been told this week that I have cloth over my ears and that I have been under exposed to what good music sounds like. I've been told that I only like the album because of internet social reasons (that one was my favorite.) I've been a fan since 1989 and have only had internet access since Jan. 2007 so that is the biggest load of crap I ever heard.
So, I tried to hear 4:13 with a different ear this morning, to try and see the flawed Jason drumming, the bland and lifeless lyrics, and the horrible mixing you all seem to feel the need to rant about. And you know what??? Not only did I disagree with you, I loved it even more. I think the boys are shining right now. They lyrics are FAR from bland....The Scream gives me chills and makes me truly worried about the person RSX is singing about. Freakshow makes me groove every single freakin' time I hear it. I must dance! I hear Robert's heart in This, Here and Now, With You. The Real Snow White is a wildly sexy tale that makes you feel a bit naughty. The Only One, well I've said this many times before but it is so sweet and SEXY!
So, anyhow, the album is out....there is a new site. And I can't stand to be here right now because of this:
Just as O.B. Laden has lost credibility on this site because all he does is spew negative remarks to the band, maybe I've lost credibility because all I do is praise them???
It makes no sense to me why a fan would want to praise a band on their website....I must be insane.
P.S. Clockwise Cat (((((CAT))))) I may post this on your blog, if you'd let me. It truly felt good to write all this out and I've had so many thoughts in my head all week.
4:13 Dream is amazing!
