*cough cough* May I Have Your Attention Please... [13 Oct 2008|01:16am]

[ mood | exhausted ]

After about 26 hours, 12 hours of hardcore working non stop, staring at bright colours, copying images, editing images, playing with colours, playing with Photoshop, playing with layouts, having an EPIC BATTLE OF EXTREME PROPORTIONS with HTML coding I FINALLY BRING YOU-- *inhale*


! ! !

This community is officially my motherfucking baby. More than any other comm I've created and layouted. Please be nice to her. I've worked hard. Especially on the profile. I would like some feedback and/or suggestions if anyone thinks of anything that might improve it. I was thinking on making a FAQ or something, but I'd need help figuring all that out.

So anyway, please, go enjoy. Stop watching this community because in my mind it is officially dead and this is the official start of the new one. Which will be updated. Which will have new layouts and pretty changes as Aiden changes their look. Which WILL BE the "offical" Aiden community of Livejournal.

<3 Thank you and I love you all.

iTunes and New Comm [07 Oct 2008|06:38pm]

William Control Single "Beautiful Loser" Available on iTunes Now......

Go get it and someone upload it here! For I am only 10c short and too broke to even afford THAT! Dx

Lots of positive feedback for creating a new Aiden comm! That makes me all sorts of happy everyone is on board for a new one. Question is; what to call it? aidenband // aidenmusicare the two that are available which I thought had a good ring to it. Who likes which or do you have your own suggestion for something? Please let me know! If something gets voted on and chosen within a few days/by the weekend, I'll make up a comm by maybe next week. :D

New Comm? [02 Oct 2008|01:56pm]


I tried leaving a message on this community's creators LJ asking if I could take over this comm. I would like to try and get it more active, and I bet it could become a good looking community if it was spruced up a bit and got more active.

It wasn't all that long ago that I left a comment to him, but his journal hadn't been updated in 16 weeks or longer. So I don't even know if he'll get my message at all, and LJ won't do anything unless there's a lot of spam or harassment in the community which needs some moderator interference.

There's 393 current members, 323 current watchers. And like, 5 "active" people who at least comment if not post. I have no idea who all sees this, but if I was to create a new Aiden community, would you follow and help keep things active with news and facts? Or would it be pointless and we should all just stay here?

Pleeeaase comment, even if it's just a simple "Yes" or "No." I really am curious and serious about trying to get a good comm going.

Secret Message on WilliamControl.com [02 Oct 2008|12:48pm]

[ mood | amused ]

You have to view the source code to see it.

In Firefox, hit Control U while you're on the page.

It's written vertically in the code's comments

ETA: Awfully ironic that keyboard shortcut to view this message is "Control U"

William Controll on Suicide Girls Radio [15 Sep 2008|01:16am]

Was on tonight from 12-2 PST. Idk who caught it. I managed too. Will's voice sounded really low and rumbley, I don't know if it was for his Control persona, or if his natural voice, BUT, the main reason so far why I'm posting this is an answer to whatitdobaby17's question from my last post about Bumbershoot.

I had mentioned Aiden is going to play in Seattle again in November. She asked if they were going to do a full tour or not at the same time. William just said that Aiden was going to do a tour in November, and they'd be in Chicago "at the end of November. But don't quote me on that."

Ooh. Possibly a secret William Control show here or there during the Aiden tour. Or after the November tour.. All those are just kinda thought processes though.

They're "currently" playing one of his songs full length, never before heard at all, and it's got a very Blaqk Audio sound, but with Will's voice and own personal touch that it's still not BA.. I like it.

Of course right when I hit Submit for this the song ends. I have remarkable timing.

ETA: Adding news just when it's being said. Probably will be a bit sporadic.

Aiden will be announcing THIS WEEK the dates for the November tour! Keep an eye out on their MySpace for the dates!!

One of the big things I love about Will, is how he has such a good relationship with fans. A girl from NY has just called and she called herself "the fishnet girl" and he knew right away who she was and remembered. Someone from Chicago gave him a teddy and he remembered her. (not to brag, but) Whenever I see him he remembers me every time... it's just. shfgdkjf I love it. It makes me want to cry, that he is like. The only one who I know out of all my bands who has a real good, strong, one-to-one level with fans.

Will made and did everything by himself for William Control. Music, recording, etc. He only had a little help with like. Producing. He'd go through a state where he'd stay up for 36 hours straight and be in an awake comatose while recording. Also apparently hit a point where he recorded a song completely naked. o.O

The video for "Beautiful Loser" (which was the new song SG played) was filmed in LA(ish) and finished today! So eventually we'll be able to see a William Control video, but nothing was mentioned as to when that'll be shown.

"When it came to the point of writing this record, I either had the choice of hanging myself or writing this record. So I made it. And every few years I get this way and I realize that music is my savior. It's the only thing that I have in my entire life that will never turn it's back on me." - William

So I should probably post the news... [05 Sep 2008|03:32pm]

In this community, because any new news is good news. Especially in regards to a new CD.

I got to see Aiden at Bumbershoot, Seattle on the 1st (my neck still hurts from the damned crowd surfers Wil just HAD to call to come up!! dhbfkjsd). The show itself was really fun, seemed short even though it was an hour performance, and I had a smile on my face the entire time because I was just happy to see them again.

[News:] During the show Wil announced that they were already writing a couple new songs and after their Europe tour, they were coming back to record at the end of the year. He said that the sound was going to be a mix of Our Gangs Dark Oath and Conviction. Interesting.. He was also promoting his William Control project, and letting us know that CD is being released October 28th. He probably would have had it released on the 31st if he had his way, but CD's are always released on Tuesdays.

Anyway, there you go :) Exciting and good new news. Idk if anyone cares to here like. A personal recap of the night, which is really just a lot of me flailing and swooning over Wil in the most loving, unfangirly way possible, but it's really not that interesting. So I'll just rest with this.

ETA: Forgot to mention Aiden is also playing in Seattle again in November. No one mentioned when or where and I forgot to ask.

JAKE W LEAVES AIDEN [21 May 2008|03:51pm]

This sucks!

Below, a copy and paste of the blog comment on Aiden's myspace.

Where the day takes you.........
Hello everyone,

I know you all are wondering why we pulled off our last North American run with Scary Kids and Schoolyard Heroes. I've read some of the ridiculous rumors that people have been coming up with, Jake was dead, I was dead, Nick was dying, OMG UFOs have landed?!!? Jesus fucking christ, this shit is out of control. My favorite so far is that Angel is becoming a priest. I laughed my fucking head off when I read that. Maybe a priest in the Church of Satan, that's something I would have believed.

I'm sorry we have kept you in the dark for so long. You see, we each have personal lives outside of the band that are kept private for a number of reasons. Mainly for sanity sake. To make us feel human, to make us feel connected to the real world and not so invaded. We aren't even a big band by any means, yet strangely enough some people feel as though they need to know everything about everyone all the time.

We have been consistently on the road traveling for the past 4 years. In those 4 years we have been in seattle a total of maybe 5 months. That's including time we spent in the studio making the "Rain in Hell" ep and our new album "Conviction". It's enough to make anyone crazy, and bring almost any kind of personal relationship to the brink of disaster. So we all felt inclined to take a breather for the first time in what seems like forever.

And with that.......

We are announcing that Jake W is no longer apart of Aiden.

We will continue on as a 4 piece. I know this may come as a shock for some of you, and some of you could care less. I just want to say to everyone that this is by no means the end. This... My dearest friends is but a beginning, a new chapter has opened up for us and the fire you saw before will be replaced with a much higher level of intensity. (sorry to all the people who would like to see us to break up, you can keep on hating another day. Believe.)

Being in a band on tour is similar to living in a fairy tale place like Never Neverland, (and no, not the crazy ranch that Micheal Jackson lives on with merry-go-rounds and monkeys running around all over the place.) It's a whirlwind of excitement, where you don't have to get up and work for some asshole you hate and where you can pretty much do whatever the fuck you want. You wake up in a new city or country everyday to venture out in and find a new experience with. It's the most incredible thing that has ever happened to me. I know that there are a million kids out there with a guitar that can sing and play a 1000 times better than me, yet for some obscure reason can't seem to make it out of their bedroom. I am grateful for everyday that I get to wake up, open my eyes, take a deep breath and live another day. Not to mention the fact that people care enough about our band to support us and allow us to have this extraordinary experience. Which is what it all boils down to. You! Ladies and Gentlemen, the fans. You are the reason we are able to do this. Without you we are nothing. Thank you for your continued belief in our little band.

Through it all we have seen the world, played some really magnificent shows, and met some of the most wonderful people on earth.

Get ready for something so much more......


I guess all we can do is wish Jake W the best and the rest of Aiden.
