I’m tearing up…I thought this day would never come….
I’m re-watching AEH and HoneyBee and remember the feeling of finding them from a simple Tumblr post my sister made of AEH photo set with lyrics to it. I liked the lyrics, searched them up, and found the music video. Those first words out of The Spine’s mouth gave me chills and goosebumps, and then came that awesome harmony (I’m such a sucker for harmonies), I was hooked even before it hit 30 seconds. After the initial wash over of euphoria I only hoped to get a better look at their full outfits, it being dark and all half shadowed forms. And then it flashed of brilliant white light and there was my hope in wonderful high definition. I remember I had to pause it at the pink hat part cause I was laughing so hard. By the end of it, I was interested and wanted to see what else this band had. Hence, HoneyBee was the next song.
First off, the FLASH sound scared the living daylights outta me and I jumped about a foot in the air and had to restart the video. I loved the mechanical movements of Rabbit in the beginning corresponding with the skeletal umbrella, and then as soon as the lyrics came into play. It was then roller-coaster ride of adoration and sadness and love from there. Throughout this whole video is when I really felt like something had changed from just saying, “Oh this band is really cool, I like a few songs.” to “OMGICAN’TEVENHOWHAVEILIVEDWITHOUTYOU” which has only happened about three to four times so far. By about half way my brain and heart were having a love battle between finding new found allure with Rabbit, since Spine was mainly in the other video.
Wondering who these awesome guys were, where they came from, and how did I miss this for so long? And now that I’ve gotten so much information about them personally and know their backgrounds and how it all came to be. It’s astonishing; it really is. I think about my first thoughts on each of them, and they really haven’t changed (and just how silly some of them were; mostly about how I could be attracted to any of them as quickly as I did).
What was your NewFanSPG memory?
A new video of us performing our popular song “Honeybee”, straight from our upcoming DVD and digital release of our concert at Walter Robotics Expo, which took place last summer during Comic Con.
First live performance of this song we caught on tape ourselves after years of performing it.
Memory cards to be precise… o_o
Weapon of Choice
This is what happens when you hold down the shutter on our camera. Made from unedited jpgs straight from the camera.
I went ahead and Weapon of Choice on in the background and now I am crying and can’t breathe, it’s too late at night for this shit.
DIXIE OMG I CAN’T…BRILLIANT!!! OMG!
