Regina Spektor partner

I have never been this heartbroken in my life

2020.11.17 02:15 aglassofapplejews I have never been this heartbroken in my life

I've had several short lived relationships (abt 1 yr) that I have never 2nd guessed. This one...this one has me up at night sobbing and playing Regina Spektor on my car drive home crying my eyes out.
I met him 4 years ago when I was working as a clerk at a high end liquor store. We were friends first and a month later he confessed that he was crazy about me. I just never loved anyone so deeply. We were doing so well but my heart called to a different state. I have a lot of trauma and suffer with depression and CPTSD so I have some mental challenges. I needed to get away to heal. We had already been together 2 years strong and had hope for our future. He said he would meet me out there in a year. Well, a year went by. And most recently 2.
During our 2 years LDR we visited one another about 5 times. We were struggling and I became resentful from the chronic loneliness. I wanted my person to move out here and have a life with me. We did everything to watching movies online together to calling and texting everyday...but I couldn't deny that the distance was taking a toll on our connection after 2 years.
He too suffers with depression and for these 2 years lacked any motivation to get his house in order- to finish 4 classes to get his bachelors or to even save to move out here. He kept reassuring me that we were in it for the long haul. He said we were going to get married and I was ready to settle down after 4 years. He was the one.
Last week I sent him an honest email about how I am just exhausted and feeling unfulfilled lately. (mostly pandemic related). I expressed that for us to make it, we needed to have a serious discussion about some things in our relationship (most importantly, him getting his shit together). But I guess he was just complacent because he ended things.
I can't stop crying. I'm losing sleep (waking up in the middle of the night for hours), I already texted him that I don't want to give up and want to fight for this and I keep blaming myself but...the reality is that I'm reflecting the reality of what I want his reaction to be. He should fight for me and come out here.
I think what hurts the most is that I lost one of biggest support systems. I lost my best freaking friend. I have just been in a phase of denial and anger and every moment I think about him and wanting to have the life I was planning on.
I wanted the house, the security, the comfort of a loving partner, eventually dog -which I've always dreamed of and maybe a family soon after. I really wanted it. I don't think I can honestly fathom being with anyone else. This is going to take a very long time to process and accept and I'm not interested in anyone else. I can't even picture that life with someone else. the time it'll take to heal and then be emotionally available to try again, I'll be a bit too old to have children.
I'm just so sad...

第二波Artist:Pistolita Album:Oliver Under The Moon Release:07/02/2006 Genre:Emo / Indie Rock Label:Montalban Hotel 首先是觉得专辑封面相当的有意思,坐在钢琴前的非驴非马在忘情的陶醉着,作为一支非著名的EMO乐团,也许您可以认为他很不男人吧,但是,好吧,我承认,听他们的第一首歌就完完全全给我当头棒喝!EMO的爆发力他们一点都不缺少,尤其是其中大量钢琴的使用,简直是神笔!而相比Muse 和Keane,他们的更加华丽,更加前卫!专辑几乎每首歌都有很大的亮点,例如Oliver under the moon里面急促的鼓点夹杂着钢琴..可以用淋漓尽致的畅快来形容.... 再如Papercut,Age,Panic……佳作!佳作!Tracklist: 1.cupid 2.voicebox 3.beni accident [null](null)4.age 5.fadawhite 6.papercut 7.China dolls 8.killjoy 9.Oliver under the moon 10.metronome 11.pity refrain 12.panic1.cupid http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/121613.mp3 4.age http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/122556.mp3 7.China dolls 专里唯一一首慢歌..陶瓷娃娃.. http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/121825.mp3 9.Oliver under the moon http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/124102.mp3

第三波Album:Trees Outside The Academy Release Date:20070918Artist:Thurston Moore Style:Alternative Pop / Rock Label:Ecstatic Peace 这是大名鼎鼎的Sonic Youth的吉他手Thurston Moore07的个人专辑好像大家都在说,这里面少了许多Sonic Youth时期的噪音.. 曾经有乐评这样写:"Sonic Youth的歌可以不好听, 可以不像歌,但一定要狠,一定要有噪音,一定要有正常人无法接受的拧巴和弦。" 而这张个人专辑里:"Thurston Moore也有平易近人的一面, Sonic Youth之外的他也完全可以写出正常的、动听的旋律出来。"Tracklist: 01. Frozen Gtr 02. The Shape is in a Trance 03. Honest James 04. Silver>Blue 05. Fri/End 06. American Coffin 07. Wonderful Witches 08. Off Work 09. Never Light 10. Free Noise Among Friends 11.

Silver>Blue 音乐进行到中间的时候那段配器颇有中国风的味道.. http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/071421.mp3

第四波Album:Boxer Artist:The National Label:Beggars Banquet Us Release Date:May 22, 2007 Style: Rock 这张专辑的封面,惊人的和上面TM的一样黑色,做的很朴实Q杂志对成军于纽约布鲁克林的五人乐团The National的评价:“如R.E.M.,The National的歌曲朴实却能深入人心,引得共鸣。”起初我对这张专辑并没有多少印象,后来听朋友介绍,然后找来听下下,确实,乐队主唱 Matt Berninger这个老男人,很深沉,很沧桑的声线,很耐听。成熟男人的味道突显出来了吧。而且乐队的其他成员也是鼎鼎有名:Peter Katis (Spoon、Interpol) ,Fred Kevorkian (Ryan Adams、Regina Spektor),民谣怪杰Sufjan Steve Tracklist: 01 Fake Empire 02 Mistaken for Strangers 03 Brainy 04 Squalor Victoria 05 Green Gloves 06 Slow Show 07 Apartment Story 08 Start a War 09 Guest Room 10 Racing Like a Pro 11 Ada 12 Gospel 02 Mistaken for Strangershttp://www.mediafire.com/?c1lvienxuyjhttp://centralvillage.blogs.com/cv/files/02_mistaken_for_strangers.mp3 刺猬兄 大力推荐08 Start a War http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/093613.mp3 05 Green Gloves http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/092208.mp3 07 Apartment Story http://fv.menllo.com/musics/01917670-d1bb-4a6b-b26f-e3941c333d49/2007/10/21/075543.mp3

第五波Artist:RF & Lili De La Mora Album:Eleven Continents Label: Rowing At Sea/Time Release Records Released: 05 Jul 2007 Style: Dream Pop 去年一张很不错的 Dream Pop 专辑主唱小MM的声音很纯很干净很清新,甚至有点娇柔的味道,但是绝对不会给人有造作的嫌疑而且编曲配器方面,大量的运用了竖琴安详清澈~~~Tracklist: 1. Through the Trees 2. Fences 3. Miles and Miles 4. Kings 5. Hundreds of Threads 6. Cherry Park 7. Fascinated 8. Newt Crossing 9. 11:11 10. Steep Ravine 11. Eleven Continents 12. Lifetime5.

2017.07.05 22:03 SexistButterfly [TOMT][MUSIC VIDEO] Looking for a music video featuring a cheating spouse

The song is Indie pop with a female vocalist. The music video has a woman coming home late, her partner pretends to sleep while she undresses for bed. The implication being that she just cheated on him.
Song is in the vein of Sia and Regina Spektor

2016.05.06 08:37 Lt_Kickbutt Matching Ships with Songs

A week and a half ago there was a post looking for corresponding songs to RWBY ships! I didn't have any off the top of my head but I thought it was a fun idea so here's my list of 11 ships I thought I found good songs for, based on lyrics. I'll do a bit of my interpretation, scrutinize it all you want in comments!
I hope I got your OTP and did it justice! Don't read anything in the order, I'm just going down a list. Also I'm going to be using character names so people don't have to look it up. Watch out for Arkos feels if you don't know the song.
RomanxNeo: "One Week" by Bare Naked Ladies I like the kind of paranoid but predictable relationship in the song, and the partner is always emoting with her arms and facial expressions when he talks about her so I think its a great fit.
NeoxYang: "Kiss With a Fist" by Florence and the Machine All these two do is fight. It's fun to watch!
RubyxCinder: "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart School boy gets dragged away by an older woman for her amusement/pleasure.
CinderxEmerald: "Girl" by The Beatles Kind of eerie guitar rift and almost all the lyrics fit their mildly abusive relationship.
YangxBlake: "Slide" by Goo Goo Dolls The singer promises to keep her past a secret and when he asks to marry or run away it rings true to Blake.
JaunexPyrrha: "Samson" by Regina Spektor RIP my OTP. So sad, I heard this song maybe 3 hours after that finale so I could be skewed, I wonder what you all think. The deaths are swapped but I think it holds up.
RubyxWeiss: "I Think Were Alone Now" by Tommy James and the Shondells There are a bunch of covers of this if this isn't your jam. I think this version is really great. I also think this song would work with any Weiss ship, but her need to hide this relationship from her father would be apparent.
BlakexWeiss: "Love Story" by T-Swizzle Hate me for the T Swift if you want, but the Romeo and Juliet allegory really works for Schnee Faunus. There are two hundred songs that would work for the rich girl and the ruffian as a couple. Post your favorite!
RubyxJaune: "Heroes" by David Bowie Against all odds boy and girl dream of being a hero, even if its just for a day.
RenxNora: "Something to Talk About" by Bonnie Raitt We're not together together! But everyone keeps saying it....
WinterxQrow: "99 Red Balloons" by Nena Which is going to nuke which first? Not exactly a love song but these two are on opposite side of kingdoms at odds now and they don't exactly get along.
BONUS!!! The ultimate song to defend yourself against crack ships or throw shade at your least favorite. Use at your own risk!
"Ship to Wreck" by Florance and the Machine Try listening to this and not think about a drunken crack shipping going under.
All these songs are dear to me personally, so it did affect my decision. There really is no need to shit on the songs themselves, just complain about if they embody the ship or not.

2015.12.02 23:47 420_starlord In love with a girl who is my friend's(co worker, not a close friend) ex-girlfriend!

So it started when I got a part time job in my college. This is a job where you have a partner and you stick with them for 5 hours to roam around dorms in college to check whether everything is okay ( Mainly to spot weed and booze, which we never do ). I met her in the orientation, she was so cool and I fell in love with like the guys in John Green novels. To my disappointment, the same day I came to know that she has a boy friend and he works with us too. (They always work together as partners) I didn't want to do anything with their relationship and I would just admire at her beauty from a distance. But soon I became friends with her and so her boyfriend. Her boyfriend and I were both not from US but from neighboring countries so we got along in a way. I didn't really like him but just for spending more time with her, I tolerated him. Some days when I got really lucky that she and I were in the same shift together in which her boyfriend wasn't. During those times, we were became( I think, not sure about her) good friends, we talked for hours during our shift. It is not like she or I had a choice, we were forced to spend those 5 hours together. We had several similar sessions like this and we became good friends.
I came to know that we had several similar interests like music, tv shows, yoga, running and other good stuff. I knew that she was so awesome when she said she likes Regina Spektor ( all my friends make fun of me for listening to her). And for weird reason, she thought that I really got along with her boy friend and made me hang out with him a lot. Her boyfriend was a fucking possessive asshole. He wanted to break up with for some silly reason. And they both came to me for some unbiased option( which was ridiculous). I really really liked her very much but never made a move on her just because I was friends with both her and her boyfriend and knew them. And then I graduated and moved somewhere else while she was still in college.
We didn't talk much after that at all. May be a couple texts here and there. After like 3 months, I got a text saying "myname, I miss you" from her. Obviously I was fucking happy but not sure whether she meant it as a friend or more. Then I started talking to her a little and then she told me that she broke up with her boyfriend. Then I really started to suspect the real meaning of the "I miss you". Still I didn't want it to be awkward, so I made moves a little slowly ( maybe that's a mistake). And there wasn't really anything I could do, I moved to a different city. She was still in college. But I wanted to meet her and go out with her at least once. We texted from time to time. So I went to meet her, grabbed lunch together. And also then she invited to go to some state fair with her friends. We went and I really had a great day and time with her. We didn't hold hands or kiss or anything like that at all.
Then I came back to my place and we texted for a few days. And nothing else. I tried texting but didn't want to annoy her too much. There's always a fine line between showing interest and annoying her. But still when I see her pop up on fb feed, I feel so attracted towards her. She's still single and I want to do something to develop a relationship with her. But I have no idea what to do. All I know is that I really really like her.

2015.09.09 16:58 ReconEG For Your Consideration #28: Danny Brown - XXX

Hello everyone and welcome back to a late edition of For Your Consideration the (usually) weekly thread where we talk albums not on our essentials list, and maybe why they should be. This week, waffel113 talks XXX, the breakout mixtape from Danny Brown and our second hip-hop FYC.
Artist - Danny Brown
Album - XXX
Listen:
YouTube
Spotify
Apple Music
Background by waffel113
Danny Brown is a rapper from Detroit, Michigan, who is notable for his unique, high-pitched flow (though he does have a more normal flow as well). Born in 1981, his mother would read him Dr. Seuss books, which he says led to him speaking in rhyme when he began to talk. Additionally, his father was a house DJ, and introduced Brown to the records he’d spin on his job, which Brown says first got him interested in rapping. With his family supported by his two grandmothers, Brown would move to Hamtramck and become a drug dealer at 18.
In 2003, Brown formed a group with fellow Detroit rappers Chip$ and Dopehead called Rese’Vor Dogs. After a few singles, Brown would garner the attention of Roc-a-Fella A&R Travis Cummings, but nothing would come of it. It was then that Brown, who had been a fugitive since 19, was arrested and jailed until 2007, at which point he began to take his career as a rapper seriously. He would begin to release a series of solo mixtapes (Detroit State of Mind 1-4 and Hot Soup most notably), and would befriend G-Unit member Tony Yayo in 2010. The two would collaborate on Hawaiian Snow, and there was speculation that Brown would sign with G-Unit, but Brown’s style clashed with the group, and he remained unsigned. Undeterred, he would release his debut solo album, The Hybrid, in 2010 on the indie label Rappers I Know. It was on this album that Brown would first use his trademark high-pitched, nasally flow. The Hybrid was well received, with reviews noting Brown’s creativity and flow, and would eventually earn Brown a contract with Fool’s Gold Records in 2011.
It was with Fool’s Gold that Danny would record his breakthrough album, XXX. A concept album (of sorts, I’ll explain) that Brown says was influenced by listening to Joy Division. XXX would garner critical acclaim, and would be called “Hip Hop Album of the Year” by Spin Magazine. Additionally, Brown gave a song-by-song guide to his process of making XXX along with his producers, which can be found here. Brown would continue to work, releasing the Black and Brown! EP with producer Black Milk a year later, and touring with Childish Gambino. He also collaborated with The Avalanches on a song titled “Frank Sinatra” (that has yet to come out).
After returning to the studio, Brown announced that he had completed his third studio album, Old, in December 2012 (then titled ODB for Old Danny Brown). Originally set to be released in August 2013,Old was finally released in October, but not before threats from Brown that he would leak the album himself. Old would earn his best reviews to date, including an 8.7 "Best New Music" review from Pitchfork. Brown announced a fourth album in October 2014, and has nearly completed it, but his current project is writing a Dr. Seuss-inspired children’s book for his daughter. He also sings the opening theme to the ABC series Fresh Off the Boat.
Review by waffel113
XXX’s concept is that it’s essentially about Brown (who was 30 at the time he recorded this, hence the name) maturing, all the while pushing typical hip-hop tropes (drugs, sex, etc.) beyond the line of decency. So what better way to begin than with the first title track, “XXX”? The track showcases a few big characteristics of the album, namely the electronic, sparse production and over-the-top lyrics. Despite this, it still displays some fear; 30 is old to be getting in the rap game, and Brown recognizes this on the closing lines.
From this we go into “Die Like a Rockstar” and “Pac Blood”, both tracks that are mainly about Brown that underline his lifestyle and his abilities. On “Pac Blood” on particular, he comes out with these boasts that are so over the top, you can’t help but laugh at how far he’s pushing the envelope. Onto “Radio Song”, the first of a few tracks where Danny takes shots at rap clichés. Here, he bemoans the lack of passion in the rap game, and mocks the concept of someone like him making a radio-friendly single: the hook features one of his most grating performances on the album, and he references several one-off singles in that vein in the second verse.
“Lie4” is next, and it’s another mockery of a common rap trope: the big-money, flashy lifestyle. He talks about how he has a limousine on call, a butler, an expensive suit, and then says he’s renting everything and brags about his “income tax swag”, a preposterous boast, but what’s he got to lie for? If the other rappers who talk about this in their verses won’t, he will. “I Will” is probably one of the most blatantly-over the top songs on the album, as it’s Danny talking in no uncertain terms about the art of cunnilingus, and all the ways he’ll be doing it with his woman. It’s so graphic I feel a bit dirty writing about it, but it’s certainly a highlight.
The album’s only two features come from Brown’s Rese’Vor Dogs partners, and they come back to back on “Bruiser Brigade” and “Detroit 187”. These tracks display the abilities of Dopehead and Chip$, and allow for Brown to continue making the over-exaggerated bangers that this half of the album is notorious for. “Monopoly”, “Blunt After Blunt” and “Outer Space” are another trio of bangers, and are among the funnier songs on the album. “Monopoly” especially is bursting with quotable boasts and lyrics (“Stank pussy smelling like Cool Ranch Doritos”, anyone?), and are some of the most purely-enjoyable tracks on XXX.
We then go to “Adderall Admiral”, Brown’s ode to his drug of choice. It’s a sparser, laid-back song when compared to the last several songs, but it also contains a bit of a warning in its last lyric, “rewind this and smoke to it”. Why is this a warning? Well… Brown is on-record as saying that “Side B” of the record starts here, with “DNA”. Atypical of the rest of XXX to this point, Brown not only raps in a regularly-pitched tone, but he discusses the possibility that drug addiction and abuse can be inherited. While it’s mixed with his usual wit, it’s mostly played straight, and it’s a harbinger of what the rest of the album holds. Another example of this is “Nosebleeds”, the first song that isn’t directly about Danny. It’s a harrowing, narrative track about a young woman gripped by cocaine addiction. “Party All the Time” is also along these lines, as he talks about a woman whose life is ruined by constant partying.
“EWNESW” (Eastside, Westside, North End, South West) is Brown turning the focus onto his hometown of Detroit and analyzing the drug use and crime that’s rampant in the Motor City. “Fields” goes even further in depth, focusing on Brown’s now-abandoned neighborhood and traumatic experiences in his childhood. “Scrap or Die”, the album’s longest track, flips the concept of Jeezy’s “Trap or Die” and paints another harrowing picture of Danny’s adolescence in Detroit: stealing scrap metal from buildings and selling it off to make ends meet. The second verse in particular is particularly autobiographic, as it details a scrap raid gone wrong, resulting in his arrest for breaking and entering. The beat slowly falls apart as we transition into...
“30”, the album’s second title track and closer (not counting the bonus songs), is arguably the most emotional, personal track on the album. Switching between autobiographical verses in his high-pitched flow and 3rd-person verses in his “normal” flow, “30” paints a picture of Brown’s youth and come up, all the while touching back on the themes painted in “XXX” of drug abuse and self-doubt, closing the album on a note that’s much like the one it opened on. Even the lyrics represent this: the first lyric on “XXX” is “30”, and the last lyric on “30” is “Triple X”, closing the loop on the album’s narrative.
All in all, XXX is audacious, gritty, at times obscene, at times poignant, and at all times one of the most original rap albums to come out in the 2010s. By balancing the over the top, frequently hilarious bangers on “Side A” with the sobering, serious material on “Side B”, Brown succeeds in creating a brilliant concept album that’s in turns laugh-out-loud funny and deadly serious. Whether it’s essential or not, that all depends on your views on alternative hip-hop and if it falls under the indie genre. But it can’t be denied that XXX is a phenomenal record from one of the most unique voices in rap.
Favorite Lyrics
Cause now it’s my turn if I fuck it all up
Took a while to get here now I depend on these drugs,
I took a while to get here now I depend on these drugs
Triple X
  • XXX
There’s no originality, carbon copy singles,
He made “Black and Yellow”? I’mma make “Black and Emo”
That’s why these whack rappers, they never last long,
Don’t care about music, just radio songs
  • Radio Song
I’m living in the city where the weak get swallowed,
Belly of the beast, we don't care about tomorrow
  • EWNESW
And now a nigga 30 so y’all don’t think that hurt me
That the last ten years I been so fucking stressed
Tears in my eyes, let me get this off my chest:
The thought of no success got a nigga chasing death
Doing all these drugs in hopes of OD’ing next, Triple X
  • 30
Talking Points
• Does alternative hip-hop have a place under the indie umbrella?
• What do you make of this album’s concept? Do you prefer it or Old, which essentially flips the “Side A/Side B” concept?
• In his review, Anthony Fantano compared XXX to Exmilitary, saying that both albums take an immoral aspect of life as a concept and push it as far as it can go. Is it a valid comparison?
• Where is Brown at his strongest: his over-the-top bangers, or his more serious, narrative songs?
• And do you think XXX deserves a spot on the essentials chart?

2015.04.04 05:38 irishforapotato 24 [M4F] Baltimore - Make music with me!

Hello, everybody! I'm binge-watching sappy, music-related movies on Netflix and it is reinvigorating me in my search for a singesongwriter and creative partner to make music with. So that's why I'm here tonight!
I'm a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter that has searched high and low for a musical partner. I need a muse, I need someone that inspires me to pursue my creativity, I need someone as passionate about music as I am, and, as JG Wentworth says, I need it now!
I'm at a great point in my life where everything has been stable for some time and there's no worry about money or time or stress. I have a great job, a beautiful living space, two awesome pets, and plenty of time for personal development. I can spend hours or days making music as I please, but I'd rather be doing it with a kindred spirit than by myself.
I can share my SoundCloud account, make a new recording just for you, or just serenade you over Skype with my guitar or banjo. Hopefully, you can do any or all of the above as well!
I'm looking for someone in the vein of Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Birdy, etc. I myself can emulate a wide range of styles and genres as well and tend to feel most comfortable singing and playing alternative/folk rock.
Even if you think you might not be great or you aren't sure about doing something like this, why don't you send a message and we can find out? I can be very persuasive and, if nothing else, there will be plenty of fun involved.
Additionally, I'm willing to buy any instrument you might play or any piece of equipment we might need that I don't already own in order to make this happen. Money is no object for musical happiness.
I'm very serious about this sort of commitment. I want to find someone to create, record, and perform with. If you don't have time or music isn't a major passion in your life, we probably won't mesh well.

Questions Answers
Who is the women on the front of "On the impossible past"... and why did you guys choose that image? We'll never know who she is.
She is the subject of a photograph taken in the NEPA area by a photographer named Mark Cohen.
We chose that image because of the humility of the picture. It was taken in the area we grew up in, and the area that several of the songs are about. The focus of the image lies with the new looking wedding ring, and the hand in a position on her chest to suggest she was excited, surprised, or nervous that she was chosen to be the subject of a photographer.
A lot of children (or what I assume to be children) on the internet can't handle the cleavage in the picture. The fact that her cleavage is part of the picture can't be ignored, it's part of the picture and therefore is part of the reason we chose the picture. She looks like your girlfriend, your partner, your sister, your mom, your aunt, etc. Her body is not overtly "ugly" or modern magazine airbrushed "attractive." She looks real, and beautiful. Its really a fantastic picture. She looks familiar, and there is something more attractive and beautiful (And not necessarily boner-faced sexual) about that.
On The Impossible Past soundtracked a large portion of my last relationship and now it's hard to listen to even though it's easily the best record of the year. Love you guys! How did you get over the hardest breakup of your life? Choice in alcohol/records? Sorry to hear that! You're better than him/her anyway!
Well I'm not sure if I ever really got over it. It's kind of like dropping acid. You'll never ever be the same person you were before. Now you're the newer version of you, and you're better off for it. Learnsem.
Guiness for Hell's Ditch Side One Jameson for Hell's Ditch Side Two.
A shitty bottle of whiskey for The Greatest Story Ever Told.
Xanax and a joint (don't mix that shit with alcohol) for reconstruction site.
Ahh i could go on and on.
Are you a fan of bomb the music industry!? Meh.
What was it like touring with the Bouncing Souls? Did you guys hang out a lot? The Bouncing Souls are the fucking BEST!! What a dream come true to tour with them. And we got to hang everyday, every night, all day and all night.
What's your favorite punk bund? What about any non-punk band? My favorite punk band is The Clash and my favorite non punk band would have to be LCD soundsystem. Regina Spektor is my favorite songwriter.
What was the whole process of signing to Epitaph like? Signing to Epitaph was a whole starry eyed affair.
WHAT IS MALE CALL ABOUT? Been wondering this since the beginning of time itself. Male Call is about a fictional female lover who killed herself or died as the result of societal pressures to look and act like a girl who has attained "conventional beauty."
It's based off of the troubles and emotions we see our sisters, friends, girlfriends, and mothers experience at the hands of scumbag fucks trying to sell them products based off of their insecurites.
The Menzingers are the coolest! I'll hopefully be seeing you guys with Polar Bear Club and The Flatliners soon! Any advice for someone new to punk rock shows? :) Have fun and be yourself! It's the kind of place where you can come and not be judged. At least that's how it started out for us. Sometimes there are scene politics or whatever the fucking dumb shit asshole bullshit fuck, but its a safe space.
What bands have you been listening to lately? This last week I've been listening to The Front Bottoms, Tigers Jaw, M83, and Title Fight relatively non stop!
Fuck ya Title Fight, what do you think of Floral Green? AOTY.
How do you feel about mustaches? I like mustaches. Some people feel its the tell tale sign of a douschey hipster or some such, but I disagree. It's facial hair. Its been around forever.
Also, how big is Brendan Kelly's penis? Well all the lights were out and I was asleep at first, so I can't really give you a full measurement. All I can say is that it's sharp.
What's your favorite philly venue as both a performer and a fan? The First Unitarian Church. Hands down.
I've been all of the country and the western world. I've yet to see a venue that size, run in that fashion. Its amazing.
Is the title "On the Impossible Past" an allusion to a line at the end of Part 2, Chapter 30 of Lolita by Nabokov? Or is it just a coincidence that the line reads, "I was weeping again, drunk on the impossible past." ? Yes, it is!
Do you and Mike Lawrence spoon ever? At every possible oppurtunity.
Can you explain a bit who Casey is and what she means to the latest album? You can take what you want from Casey, it should mean something different to everyone. I actually didn't write the lyrics to that song so I can't speak too much to it.
The chorus however was written by our friend Dan Zezeski. He described Casey as "The female projection of himself." The original song is an absolute tearjerker. We'll have to get him to post it online at some point.
How is everything going with Greg and his family? Is the cleanup going well? Also next time you come to Kentucky I'll trade you a bottle of Kentucky Gentleman for the song Kentucky Gentleman. DEAL!!!
Things are going better with Greg's family. They are still working things out and life is not back to normal, but everyone is safe.
Unfortunately they are all still related to Greg.
What do you guys think of the Front Bottoms? - How much money do you make per year, on average? - I saw you guys 2 years ago at the Ox in Philly. I left before the Loved Ones played. Were they any good that night? - When is the next philly show? - Who's the biggest dickbag you've ever met in another band? - Who would win a wrestling match between the entire band? Best band around besides Tiger's Jaw - Not telling, but more than I did as a dishwasher so I'm kicking fucking ass right now -They killed it that night -January -I need to think about this one, ill come back to it -me, duh.
Hi! thanks for doing an AMA. You guys have quickly become one of my favorite bands, and i'd love to see you live, that being said any chance you'll be on warped tour 2013??? Slim to none homie. But not impossible.
If you could play with any band, from any time, who would it be? First off, we'd absolutely LOVE to play Belfast. Irish-American heritage has been a huge part of my life growing up. I'd love to go there.
Also, thanks for the music, On the Impossible Past is the best album I've heard all year. Super excited for the acoustic version too! P.S. any chance of any Belfast dates soon? Oh and that's so easy...The Clash, 1979-1980. Done.
When writing a song what typically comes first, lyrics or music? For me personally it is normally a combination of the two. Sometimes while flipping through writing I'll see something that I think could become a pretty cool song. Other times a melody or a set of chords will be brewing around and I'll just mumble some shit and then add actual lyrics later. All of the best songs seem to just kind of lock both aspects in at the same time.
Since I appear to be first, let's start this off right. Who stinks the worst on tour? Definitely Joe. Smells like pasta.
You and the flatliners are my favorite bands. ever consider a gnarly colab with those gents? Thats a fantastic idea! Great friends of ours, those boys are. Fuck I'm talking like Yoda now.
Hi Tom, I just wanted to start off by saying I love you guys and I'm really looking forward to the new acoustic LP! That said, ever since Mitch Clem tried to ruin Time Tables for me I have always wanted to ask: is Time Tables based on a true story? If so, what was her favorite Bad Religion album? You'll have to ask Greggy on that one.
Who has pooped their pants while on tour? If the answer is no one my follow up is who was the closest to pooping their pants on tour. I got food poisoning on stage in Fargo once. And yes, absolutely shit my pants.
What are you views on signing to a major record label? I have friends who've had good experiences. I know of people who have had bad experiences. The idea of being part of such a giant machine owned by investment companies, banks, stockholders, and parent companies is a bit scary. However I also understand that these businesses are made up of people, and aren't necessarily a sentient being of destruction and unabashed capitalistic greed. However I'd have trouble thinking about my album sales inadvertently paying for research into missile guidance systems or something. However it's a very complicated situation of which I don't have full understanding.
TL;DR I don't see a reason why I would do it, I don't know enough about it, my friends have done it and it worked, heard many horror stories.
Big fan. On The Impossible past has gotten me through a few shitty break ups. Is Chamberlin Waits available on vinyl? Glad we can help. We've had a few in our time that influenced the whole thing. Chamberlain Waits is currently out of press on vinyl I believe. We'll have more though!
Does it exist or would it be possible for you guys to record an acoustic version of 'Gates', please? There is a video somewhere!
Found it. It's live or something.

I hung out with you dudes at the Lake Haus a few months ago in Cleveland. I was very drunk but I specifically remember Jeff/Lauren's (fuck if I know who actually lives there, I think those names are right) pet Flying Squirrel on your head. I will try to procure a pic. Anyway, my serious question for you is why does The Fest rule so hard?? The Fest rules so hard because everyone there has the same mindset, which is to hang out with friends, have as much fun as possible, see as many of their favorite bands as possible, and for those who drink to get as sloshed as possible.
Do you ever get pulled up on, "Me and Casey" rather than, "Casey and I" ? Vernacular my man!
Saw you guys on an off date in Harrisonburg, VA. Amazing show and you guys were super nice. What was it like touring with Rise Against and A Day to Remember? Are the dudes in ADTR as horrible as I healike to imagine they are? That show was so much fun.
Touring with those bands was such an outlandish and eye opening experience. Playing in front of thousands of people in an arena is a totally different experience. The crew on that tour hazed us, and then taught us countless priceless lessons. They were so fucking cool! I really hope to see all those gals and guys again.
ADTR mostly kept to themselves.
Hey Tom, do you remember when Greg kicked Curtis out of the band and then you guys got famous? I'll probably never forgive Greg for that. Old School Bros. Hope things are well. May the home improvement specials flow like wine. - Mike Well thats not how it went down!
Whats your best story about Mr Brett? We sat around smoking cigars while he told us infatuating stories about his personal life and the lives of some of our favorite artists one afternoon. It went on for hours. It was surreal.
Are you Team Brian Fallon or Team Jadedpunkhulk? How do you know they aren't the same person?...
How was the show Wednesday with the Gaslight Anthem? I bought my ticket to that the day the show was announced, made plans to get from northwest Ohio down to Philly and see my two favorite bands play, I was so damn excited... then family crisis happened and I no longer had bus money to get there. Was it good? Did you like playing with them? Are there at least some videos of the show? Will this deep, burning sadness ever go away? I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope everything is getting better for you.
There has to be some videos on youtube somewhere!
The show was fantastic. Gaslight played a perfect set.
Saw you guys in DC with Propagandhi and you were every bit as good as I expected. Whats your favorite song to perform live? With that being said will you guys play A Lesson In The Abuse of IT when you come to DC in January? Hit us up on twitter the day of the show to remind us to play it!
I like playing Gates and Straight to Hell live.
Do you think that the fact that you're from a town that is the setting of a major television show contributed at all to your being discovered? Well we weren't "discovered." Thats a common misconception in the music industry. Being "discovered" is a thing for the majors, and it rarely happens. For them its more of a "manufactured." Its lots of touring and work that'll get you more popularity. Or a goofy youtube video with lots of hits haha.
Also, what's it like playing with Hot Water Music? Playing with HWM is amazing. Its every bit of amazing you would expect.
Big fan, love the latest record! Now for the shitty question - you guys any plans to visit Ireland (be it north or south) in the future? I know we're a bit out of the way... edit: Another Belfast Menzo fan! Yes! We'll get there!!!
What's the significance of the first two tracks on Chamberlain Waits starting with the phrase, "I was born..."? It was a coincidence that we wrote it like that, but we ended up using them as the first two songs because we thought that was cool.
Am I making things up, or was there talks at one point before OTIP came out of an acoustic release? Presuming I'm not completing making things up, whatever happened with that? The acoustic release got scrapped because of signing to Epitaph. Several of the acoustic songs became full band songs on OTIP. Some of the acoustic demos that we are releasing on vinyl as On the Possible Past are the remnants of that project.
Why did the lyrics for Sun Hotel change so much from the demo to the album? Gotta ask gregory.
You are now my mortal enemy. BRING IT.
CONSPIRENCY THEROIES!?! Who landed on the moon?? Loch Ness monsters?!? Mutha fucking big foot!? Please...please let me know NASA landed on the moon. There is no evidence to suggest any type of collaboration between malicious persons concerning an unknown animal in a Scottish lake or an undiscovered apelike creature. That's crypto-zoology, and I know nothing about it.
HOWEVER while we're at it...it appears that recent DNA evidence suggests the existence of an unknown species of apelike humans.

You guys gonna make up the cancelled Aussie tour soonish? feel free to play a show in my backyard when ya do ;). But seriously, love your stuff. What's the best band you've toured with? And i guess, fave album of all time? Honestly, we have no fucking clue what is going on with that. Your guess is as good as ours!
What advice would you give to someone who wants to make music in a similar vein to yours and doesn't live in a place with a good "scene" or have bandmates? Make the scene! Or move to a bigger city.
Honestly in Scranton we built our own scene. We rented out firehalls and community centers. We booked bigger bands and made friends with them. All of our friends started playing instruments, taking photographs, screen printing, having parties and the like. If us dorks could do it you could surely pull it off!
How can I show my appreciation for bands without looking like a total fanboy? Most of the time I get all flustered and say, "You make good music!" I met Tim Browne from Elway the other day and he said, "I'm just a normal guy who gets drunk and plays music," or something like that. I love Tim. What a dingus. But yeah, we're all just normal people who play music. Treat it like that. There are musicians who carry on a strange cult of personality, and there are musicians who have the whole lead singer disease thing going on, but fuck those assholes. People in bands are pretty damn good at just kind of hanging out.
Hey man I saw you years ago with The Riot Before in doylestown, pa when I was pretty young, and I gotta say you guys were the absolute coolest to the fans and put on one of the most intense shows I've seen (even with a broken arm). That show was a long time ago! Wasn't it on Valentine's day?
My question is, is their a conscious decision in the direction of your music toward new sounds than the original core-punk songs of An Abuse of Information Technology? There is a conscious decision, but more based off of preference. As we are getting older and better at our instruments our tastes and the way we express ourselves are constantly changing.
Saw you guys play at the Mayan a few months ago with Bouncing Souls. Absolutely amazing. Put Bouncing Souls to shame, thought that might have just been because of the giant disco ball. Also, how fun are nothington to tour with and, as you two are my favorite bands at the moment, if you guys fought, who would win? We didn't put them to shame! It's no competition! It was a blast though. The disco ball was awesome, and it was courtesy of Kate Hiltz (tour managelife manager of the souls, all around fucking bad ass, of Kate is Great fame) Nothington are a blast. Perfect people to drink with. If we fought we would win because EAST COAST FUCK YOU.
What's with Greg and blue dresses? He wrote about a blue dress in Time Tables.
I wrote about a blue dress in Burn After Writing. I'm not sure if he's writing about a real one, but I was. It was cotton and cute.
What was it like playing with rise against? would you do arenas again? i have a hard time picturing you guys playing arenas since i've seen you at much smaller places and i feel like it's way better suited to that kind of setting. It was a lot of fun, see above for a more in depth answer.
I would do it again, sure. It's not necessarily our thing but we got to dip into the theatrics a bit. That was fun for me because I performed in plays in high school. I appreciated the cool things that Mario did for us with the outrageous light system. That was the first time we ever messed around with a recorded intro and a banner. Like I said, it's not our thing but it was definitely fun. Oh and we ate like kings and they gave us two cases of beer and a bottle of whiskey every night.
What is your favorite venue to play in Denver? You guys have been here often so it seems that you enjoy my fair city. Oh we love Denver! One of our best friends moved out there, and its really the only time we get to see him. Its also a beautiful city with a lot to offer. My favorite place to play is The Marquee. Every time we play there we have a spectacular show.
Words can't describe my anticipation for you the Feburary show you're playing here with Hot Water Music (my all time favorite band). Also I can't wait to get high as shit legally.
Quite a nice discussion going on there, perhaps you can help us out a bit on completing the family tree :) Edit: Get some 2XL/3XL shirts in store. Would love to sport one. :) Thats so cool!!! I'll have to jump in there. I'll send an email right now about the shirt sizes. I didn't realize they weren't in there. Sorry friend!
What's your favorite movie? Children of Men is my favorite movie. Best opening scene ever.
Bonus question: If you could make out with any historical figure, who would it be? Hmmm...Harriet Tubman, Nikola Tesla, or Mary Magdelane.
I have but one more important question. Drink(s) of choice? Guinness, and Guinness, and oh uh Guinness. Also I'll drink any fuckin weird ass liquor out there.
I've been a long time fan ever since seeing you guys all the time at cafe metro years ago. I'm a friend of Stevo's little brother from the The Holy Mess, you or anyone else still keep in touch with them? Also, I'm not sure if you answered this or not but what song is your personal favorite that you wrote? I see Steveo all the time! My favorite song that I wrote is Nice Things.
Holy shit! On The Impossible Past is tied with the new Taxpayers album for my album of the year. You guys kick so much ass. Not too sure what to ask. Uh. Do you like Jawbreaker? And yes, I do like Jawbreaker. I'm not the biggest fan, but I certainly enjoy their music and lyrics.
Why do so many good bands come from Philly? EAST COAST FUCK YOU.
Are you on the cover of the the new glocca morra album? Why yes I am, along with Augusta Koch from Cayetano and Andy Clark from Luther!
Have seen you guys a couple times in Boston, and you guys are awesome! How does it feel to be continue 40 years of Punk Rock lengendry? I've never heard it phrased that way before. But its FUCKING AWESOME.
I have seen you guys in a few different cities, most recently in Charleston, SC. Do you ever get bored with playing some of the same songs on tour over and over? Does the energy/response from the crowd help with that? How do you keep it "fresh" to yourself? We keep it fresh by changing up the set list a little bit each night. Sometimes I do get bored, but some of the other members don't like to change it up and would rather play the same songs every night.
You're stranded on an island. Which punk band, besides Menz, do you choose to play with in a face-off in a basketball game against the Harlem Globetrotters? Sidekicks, they're pretty damn good at basketball.
So coming back to Cleveland anytime soon? How do you feel about people jumping up on stage while you're playing? I think it only happened once at the Beachland ballroom Bouncing Souls concert you played and another thing do you know what was going on with Greg Attonito he keep walking off stage? Not sure what was up with Greg. Since I don't remember I'm sure it was fine.
Love it, however no stage potatoes, no salmon jumps, and no shitty stage divers!
I guess my only question is, each album your sound becomes a bit more polished, a little cleaner and a little less aggressive. Is this an intentional thing? I don't mean that you're becoming watered down or anything, just curious. And yes it's an intentional thing, in the sense that we are writing the songs. We didn't get together and say, "Hey need to polish this shit up so we can be famous." The song writing process itself has just taken that road. The older we get the less aggressive we are becoming. Well I shouldn't say less aggressive, just the way we express that aggression is becoming more focused and...different.
I got blood on my baseball tee I got from a show you played in Lansing a while back. Come play a show in Flint so I can buy a new one? That's pretty bad ass. and Yes.
Were there any major changes in the way the band works between Chamberlain and Impossible? Chamberlain was great but Impossible is stunning. Obviously you are now on Epitaph, but I'm asking about songwriting. Well we were able to afford spending a long time sequestered with the intention of writing. We didn't have to work jobs while we were writing, we just had to work really hard and write all day. I think that definitely had something to do with it. We also tried to write the album as more of an album than a collection of songs.
Which album are you most proud of? I noticed you're listening to Tigers Jaw. Check out Three Man Cannon, my buddy is releasing a split for them. I'm most proud of our most recent album, On the Impossible Past.
I also happen to be very close friends with Three Man Cannon AND Lee Corey Oswald!
Do you notice any personalities about different cities or scenes as you travel? I'm curious specifically about Minneapolis, but are there differences in crowds in different parts of the country? Picking apart the subtle cultural differences based on geography is probably my favorite part of being on tour. People have subtle accents only a few miles away from each other. People have different festivals, eat different things, have different names for things, different expressions, its all really interesting. It could be because a certain immigrant group came there, or a certain industry was popular there. It's like a cool hands on kind of anthropology haha.
Minneapolis crowds are interesting. There are a lot of bearded tattooed men and tattooed ladies who drink plenty and love music. Everyone who I've met is also really nice and very funny. I think they're a bit spoiled up there too haha. It's hard to win them over.
What made you guys invite the front bottoms to tour with you? I am a huge front bottoms fan and am so excited you guys showed them love! Their incredible music made us bring them! Turns out they are really fun guys too. We just got to hang again the other day.
How fucking mind blowing was it to tour with Propagandhi? They seem like awesome guys. One of the best shows I have been to. MINDBLOWING.
Such a tight band. They are also stand up people. They knew all of our names within hours, and they practice what they preach. Oh and they're hilarious and have the best Canadian accents ever. I wish them everything in the world.
Hey I've seen you guys every time you've been to Ontario, and also I played against you in call of duty when the original black ops came out and you were tweeting.. (the noob you "pwned" was my girlfriend lol) gonna see you at the l3 on Dec 15th with polar bear club and the flatliners.. can I expect to hear "sunday morning"? Haha nice! That was fun. Joe just bought a playstation so there will be a whole lot of noob slaying happening soon. Can't wait to curb those Christmas Noobs.
Tweet at us that day to remind us! We'll probably play it.
What effects do you guys use? Your sound is my favorite but I can't figure it out for songs like Richard coury and I can't seem to tell... Oh and I love you. On the last record we used a combination of distortions, chorus, delays and a few recording tricks.
I left the show after you played instead of sticking around for the opening act the last two times I've seen you guys (Hamtramck, MI and Detroit, MI). Am I an asshole or can I be forgiven? Also, I originally misheard the lyric on Greg's 'Sun Hotel' and now I am thoroughly convinced my version is better. :) "Maybe it's me but the bartender is a lot wiser than all the customers." Ya, know...like after you've had a few too many and the bartender seems like he just knows what he's talking about? Whatchu think? You are forgiven my son.
Would you ever consider doing a tour of smaller towns? Like Toledo,OH or some other small towns in the MidWest? Absolutely. In fact we may be doing something like that on our way back from HWM. We did play Toledo once. It sucked haha.
We also always joke about doing a Solar System Tour. There are towns across the US that we see once in a while that are named after the planet. We thought it would be spectacular to play small dive bars and such in those towns and film the whole experience.
Why do you hate Atlanta? We love you! Atlanta wasn't so bad last time. The Claremont is also one of my favorite places in the world to get a beer.
I'm not about to drop the L word just yet though!
Question though, if you could bring back any one artist or band from the dead for one final show, who is it, where are you playing, and why? If you have to ask why then you can't come!
I'm most impressed with how cohesive all of your songs are despite having two singers/songwriters with distinct styles. Do you ever write an awesome song but feel like "shit man, this just isn't a Menzingers song", or do you somehow always make it work? Related question; when are you gonna put out an acoustic solo album? We totally write awesome songs and realize that they won't work for The Menzingers. And I'm not sure when, but I will absolutely be putting out a side project in 2013. I will most likely use songs that are throwaways from the next album.
When will you guys write songs about girls that aren't waitresses? When the girls we write songs about stop calling us darling and letting us pay them to bring us beer and food.

Favorite venues to play? Favorite venues to see shows? So how'd the Marathon go!
