A Tale of Icy Driveways.

I am listening to Cinema Bizarre's acoustic version of 'Lovesongs (They Kill Me)'. I never would have expected to hear this song in acoustic, but... It's beautiful. It's so interesting; same lyrics, but an entirely different feel to the song. I think this version is much... Sadder. Like the rock version kind of seemed like a complaint, but I can actually feel the pain in the music with this version.
For you who do not know: Cinema Bizarre is my absolute favourite band.
And they just broke up.
Don't worry, I'm not going to go off and cry or anything. ;) I respect their decision, because they, of course, know what's best for themselves. They're very young (20-23, I believe), and have so many more things to do in their lives. I sure wouldn't want my entire life (or at least my youth) to be dedicated to one thing. Like Strify (the lead singer) said in an interview:
"What has always scared me the most is to stand still and not develop any further. I think you can develop through change by experiencing new things, by trying new things. I don't want to remain inside the same grid and always live after the same pattern. In that case my soul would wither."
-Jack E. Strify
I completely agree with this; it applies to me as well.
However, even though I understand and respect their decision, it does not mean that I can't be sad for a little while. ;) They were a huge part of my life.
Oh, I wish they had come to my city once more before they disbanded! I was never able to see them in concert!

Insanity! Insanity! Insanityyyyyyyy!! Where could I find this version?

I wouldn't be surprised if any one of them stayed in the music business. I still wonder what happened to Lumi, though.

At least they came to your city at all!

It's on their MySpace music player. http://www.myspace.com/cinemabizarre Recently they've been putting up acoustic versions of their songs, but I never did listen to them. I guess now I can see why they put them up. Like a parting gift? xD Maybe not, but it worked out nicely.

I do hope that at least some of them stay in the music business. I can definitely see Strify taking up a solo career (I doubt the music would be my taste, though). It'd be cool if Yu stayed (I wonder if he can sing?).
Hmm... I know that on their BANG! album, Luminor sang some newer songs or something, just for the album, but I have no idea what's up with him. I'll research that.

Haha, yeah, it's amazing that they were an hour and a half from me, even if I couldn't see them. ^^; So close! They didn't come to your state at all?

:o MUST. GO. LISTEN!! *runs off.*

I'm not sure... If Strify did most of the recent music, I'm not sure the lyrical style would hit me so much. But I guess it's a trial-and-error thing. We have to try before we'll know. Hmm.. I have no idea what Yu'll do.

Courtney, I'm not sure if anybody comes to West Virginia.

I think Yu would do rock. I remember him saying once, when the band was talking about what kind of parties they like, that he loves rock parties.

XD True, true. I guess WV is worse than where I live. At least we have a major car industry! (That's failing.)
