i am Aitou of the Sweet Children. this was my old account 1 year ago...then i made that new one. it is now deleted due to unknown reasons. As many can tell, i like Green Day. I will outright get all blackhawk on you if you bash green day. but lately i just get pissy because i am sick of defending green day every time i get on here. don't call me a teenie or i will report you. flat-out. i am the infamous ila reto from the green day community (GDC). you can count on all the stuff i say about green day to be pretty acurate and up to date. I do not start rumors but have been known to confirm/de-confirm them. i have met many great people on Y!A, and i feel like many agree with what i say, and vice versa. if you have a problem with me, then don't go reporting me just because you dont agree with what i do or say. keep those opinions to yourself. you may know me as Alanna, Aitou of the Sweet Children, Armatage Shanks, and ila Reto.

  • Green Day 3rd new single: 21st Century Breakdown?

    i know i retired from making info-questions, but i do lurk around here and haven't seen this yet.

    my question: what would you have rather seen as their 3rd single?

    Tre leaked that their next single will, in fact, be 21stCentury Breakdown.

    also, the 21 Guns physical single will be out in early July (i think the 11th) and it will include b-side tracks Favorite Son and a 1994 (tokyo?) performance of She. which i see as a mistake on Warner's part but that's not my problem.

    anyway, just wanted to let ya'll know. x

  • Is this acceptable for an engagement?

    we're very young, and apparently dont' do things by the book whatsoever.

    I dont want to put the blame on him, but he doesn't know one thing about how engagements and marriages go regarding the rings.

    here's his take:

    "the man proposes to the girl with a ring, that's considered her wedding ring, and then she buys him a ring but doesn't give it to him until the wedding"

    my take:

    "you give the girl an engagement ring. then you go and pick out wedding bands together so the wife has her engagement ring and wedding ring after marriage, and he has the wedding band after marriage".

    i love him very much, but we just can't seem to agree on it.

    i know he's really pressed for money so i dont want to push the idea of buying 3 rings alltogether, but i also want to be at least a little traditional (most or all of my family will not be attending the wedding, we will be both under 21 by the wedding day, the wedding will not be held in a church and due to having little money there won't be a honeymoon right away).

    i just wanted something to at least go the way it's supposed to, after all, i'll (hopefully) only have one wedding day....

    how should i go about confronting or compromising with him?

  • Squeezing pimples = heart attack?

    i heard something about this a long time ago, and then today my friend was trying to squeeze her face and she said her heart was pumping like she was gonna have a heart attack.

    i told her it was an adrenaline rush plus the pain from squeezing but then i remembered that there was some slight correlation.

    Any one know what i'm talking about?

  • Agh sh*t...this 'question' is for those in the Idiot Club?

    So who's a member of Green Day's online "idiot club"?

    well safe to say the IC got hacked today, which sucks, even though im not part of it.

    We advise all of you to not go on there for a couple days, because they "Can't tell if they might have messed with any other code, don't wanna risk someone stealing your account info" such as credit card numbers and anything else that's used on there.

    Actually im pretty shocked, that's such a big site i wouldnt think an club member would do that. then again some people are suggesting that the band set this up themselves.

    Well whatever the case is, just stay off the site for a little while.

  • Oxycontin vs Marijuana (school purposes only)?

    right off the bat, lemme say that i dont do either of these. mk?

    what i do need, however, is to compare/contrast the two. rate which one is least/most dangerous and why, and also the bad effects of each.

    This is a freshmen Health Class question (i am a sophmore helping my younger friend, but i cant remember the stuff i learned for the life of me).

    so make it in simple terms.

    I already know that drugs are harmful, trust me, so dont go preaching about it, just answer my questions lol.

    Thanks in advance

  • How can i get involved in an organization against drug use?

    (meaning an anti-drug group or association).

    growing up, i've realized how many friends that were close to me had been using drugs, even my own boyfriend (who has been since clean for 8 months, and then recently fell victim to it again, but has been working really hard to stay on the right track now).

    I know im young, but im all for supporting a cause that discourages drug use. i just need a place to start.

    Anyone want to point me in the right direction?

  • What jobs are out there that a person could stay with for 10+ years?

    i've reached this point in my life, where im having to decide wether to go to university like i have planned my whole life, or go to an insitiute (WTI) to get a specific degree (therefore shaming my whole family, etc etc).

    Anyway, im hesitant with having a "trade" job, because i dont know how long i could keep doing the job to retirement (meaning, doing that same job until im 60 years old).

    Basically what i'm asking, is what types of jobs out there stable?

    minus the doctor/lawyer/dentist stuff.

    also, i dont want to be a nurse, or dental assistant, or massage therapist.

    help?

  • Is there such a thing as a Music Historian?

    if there's a career category on Y!A, please direct me to it.

    i think i may have a knack for this stuff. of course, my knowledge is limited to one band, but im sure i could expand if there was a job that called for it.

    also, how many years of schooling would it take to become a journalist, and how difficult would it be to land a job with magizines/online magizines such as Spin, Kerrang, Revolver and Rolling Stone?

    any answers would help, thanks.
