So something pretty cool happened not too long ago. I’ve been writing my list of favorite songs and at number 98 was The Icarus Account’s So In Love, but to be honest quite a few of their songs could have made the list, but since I’ve only known of them for about six months and went with one song I chose So In Love to represent them, which is weird because I haven’t been in love for a while, so I feel like I should resent that song for mocking my dumb un-in-love ass. Not that my dumb ass is un-in-love on purpose. My dumb ass also wasn’t expecting what happened next.
A few weeks after I posted the blog I received a comment from some guy named Trey who claimed to be from The Icarus Account. At first I was hesitant to believe it was really him, but after I emailed him I was assured of it…and that’s when I gave him my credit card information. Kidding of course. I wasn’t really hesitant in believing it was him because, and no offense to the band, I don’t think people go around pretending to be the guys from The Icarus Account, although I think that’s the way to go. Why pretend to be the big time celebrity? No one will believe it. Instead be a smaller celebrity, that way no one will question it because no one will know who you are anyway.
So I emailed Trey – I wasn’t stalking him, he told me to, I swear – and he mentioned they were coming out with a new EP and said it’d be cool if I wrote a review or something on it if I liked some songs. Well I listened and I liked and the review will be coming, but first I want to mention a few things.
The Icarus Account seem to be cool guys. In the few words I had with Trey he seemed extremely nice. And then I found this other blog where The Icarus Account allowed who I think is a high school girl to interview them. And if you go to their youtube page they have a couple tutorials of how to play their songs acoustically. It’s nothing eye popping but it’s still a cool thing to do. Now that the nice is out of the way let’s get to the many things I hate about them. First up on my list of 456 things…kidding. Although, and this may be too much to ask of them, but if they could somehow find a way to turn into two extremely hot chicks I think that would bump them up a few spots on my list of favorite bands.
Another thing this reminded me of was the time I wrote a blog on Myspace about the man with the world’s largest penis – 13 and a half inches – and I mentioned how I couldn’t find any pictures of his penis (curious why you were looking so hard) and then the man with the world’s largest penis left a comment saying that if I wanted to see it so bad he’d send me a picture. I’m pretty sure he was joking. I was even more sure when he kept refusing to show me when I asked. That’s a joke, I didn’t actually ask. Seeing a penis that big would only give me nightmares. I think it’s pretty cool that I’ve had Trey from The Icarus Account and the man with the world’s largest penis both comment on my blog. Although it could be cooler.
It’s times like this I wish I was a sixteen year old girl. Not because of the obvious reason of being on the cheer squad in hopes of the hunk starting quarterback noticing me, but rather because teen girls go crazy over the people they like. I think it’s cool that Trey left me a comment, but if I was a sixteen year old girl and got a comment on my blog from the guy from one of my top ten favorite bands I’d go crazy and tell all my friends how he was totally into me and would totally sleep with me – I’ll get back to that in a second. Two things wrong with that though. 1) If I was a teenaged girl I wouldn’t have a convention blog, but would probably have one of those tumblr things where I would mostly post pictures. And 2) if I was a teenaged girl I probably wouldn’t know who The Icarus Account is and instead would be listening to Justin Bieber over and over again. I’ve never been more happy to not be a sixteen year old girl. And actually I think The Icarus Account has a lot of teen girl fans. For all the teen boys out there, those are the girls you need to keep your eyes on for future wooing, not the girls who like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, who may be easier to get when you’re in college, but in the long run aren’t the way to go.
I mentioned the thing about the girl saying that the guy would totally sleep with her because I once had a conversation with a girl who at the time was sixteen – I wasn’t being creepy pedophileish, I was sixteen at the time too, although going out of my way to mention that I was sixteen makes me seem like I’m trying to defend myself, which means I must be hiding something, although I don’t think I am – and she told me about how she was at an All American Rejects concert and the lead singer made eye contact with her – the lead singer who multiple people have told me I look like when I have long hair, but I don’t see it – and she said there was a connection between them and that she could have easily slept with him. I don’t doubt that. However I don’t think it’s because there was a connection. I think it’s because most guys are pigs and will sleep with anything relatively attractive – she was more than relatively attractive.
I think I’m going to make this a two parter. So click on the link below to read my review of The Icarus Account’s Sunshine and Rain EP. If there’s no link below then please leave me a comment calling me an idiot because I forgot to include the link.
