omg. jeremy is still sleeping.

  • Hey guys. Hayley here..

    I'm sitting in the front lounge of the bus. Being on voicerest is never fun but it's an almost constant chore when I'm on the road. Maybe I'm getting too old to headbang? I get the most intense "bangovers" (shhh, i know how that sounds).. the first few days of tour and it causes my throat to get a lot hoarser than it would be otherwise. So yeah, needless to say, this off day is pretty event-less. However, typing feels great! So, here I am!

    2 days into the biggest US tour we've ever done. My head is spinning. So much hard work is paid off every time I look up and see everyone smiling, singing, and having a good time. We want this show to be fun. And while, we're still getting used to the set-list and the sore necks, it's already everything we could've hoped for. Make sure to hit up Brandon (@branchesbro) on Twitter and let him know what you think of all the videos that we made for the show.

    (holy capslock, i just realized i have been writing this like an essay... back to the norm).

    there are 2 videos, in particular, that we shot while we were home in franklin only about a week and a half ago. the one for "Decode" and the one for "Looking Up". there is a small cameo by my younger sister, Erica, in the "Decode" video. she plays a menacing shadow person. that sounds ridiculous... but i don't know what else to call her role hahah. anyways, Brandon pulled off those two videos - as well as a few others - extremely well. and in such a short amount of time.

    another thing... the clothes. my friend Jen (@bunnyjenny) and I designed some stuff for the guys and I to wear. so much fun. for whatever reason, i really enjoy girl-scout stuff.. one of the first goodwill purchases i ever made was a toddler sized girl-scout dress that i wore as a shirt. there's a pic of it somewhere from 2006 when i brought it on tour with me. so yeah, i still have that sort of obsession.. (mostly with the cookies) and wanted to go with that type of "punk rock girl scout" sort of style for this tour. and since the color scheme was very similar to what the guys like to wear anyways, we just made clothes for everybody!

    this is my first go-round with the whole designing/costume making biznass. i enjoyed the process very much.

    still figuring out a way to sew my mic pack into the dress i made without messing with the style of it. we'll get there. i'm just stoked that we actually made some skin-tight pants and they are durable... but stretchy enough that my booty isn't hanging out the back when i jump. that's so embarrassing. ugh, i could go on about clothes for days. sorry to bore you all. i'm gonna post a few close up "making of" pics of all the pieces i'll be wearing on stage over at my tumblr and if you're interested, you can check it all out. >> (yelyahwilliams.tumblr.com)

    oh, and i've also just started blogging for MTV.com. i think it's just for the duration of the tour... but go and check it out and comment me a lot so i look like a real important journalist.

    i really hope that jeremy is actually sleeping and not dead. because it's like 3:45. i'm gonna go shake him and tell him our bus is on fire.

    thanks again if you've already gotten tickets to the shows. can't wait to see you out there. let us know each night what you thought of it...

    ps, brandon from delaware is a great singer.

Why I like the Brand New Eyes so much: Careful - this song makes me move my head and sing - You´ve got to rich out a little more, more... Ignorance - ignorance is my new best friend, and I don´t take care about people who wants to see me cry. Playing God - I fight for myself, I don´t give up. Brick By Boring Brick - try not to have your head in the clouds, never be big headed. Turn It Off - like if this song was saying to me - when it feels the worst it´s gonna be better. The Only Exception - most beautiful love song. Feeling Sorry - this song makes me think about my life, what should I change. Looking Up - This song exactly describes it - It´s not a dream anymore. It´s what you were fighting for. You´re just getting started. Where The Lines Overlap - it comes a sunshine with this song. Misguided Ghosts - life is hard and you described it exactly - everybody is trying to find his place, it´s good to have friends on which you can rely on. And it makes me stronger when you sing - You are not useless. All I Wanted - I like what you´re doing with your voice in this song, beatiful.

I don't know what I'd do if I had to spend that much time stuck one place and not be allowed to talk to anybody, though it might be pretty similar to what I'm doing now. I'm grounded for nine weeks (long story) and I can't visit any of my friends during this time, nor can I watch TV, step a foot outside this house besides school, try out for the beloved play, and right now I'm technically not supposed to be on the internet. It's still quarter break, so I haven't been outside of my bedroom for about four days (though my friend is going to sneak me out later today while the family's at church). I couldn't help myself from sneaking onto the computer and doing something to stop myself from going stir-crazy, so here I am, posting a comment at 3:49 a.m. my time, and wishing I could be tired enough to pass out on the couch. You rock, the others rock, and now I'm going to try to make myself sleepy by breathing in some Sharpie fumes using the markers my mom's got tucked away in the kitchen cabinet. : )

PARAMORE. so i went to ur show last weekend and it was amazing. i had so much fun. it was my first paramore concert. (thinking about it now it was my first concert ever, you guys didn't let me down) I did what ever i had to do 2 get tickets. i found out you guys we're coming to San Diego in march,19 (two days after my b-day) i was so excited. I told my sister about it and she convince my bro- in law to get me some tickets for my b-day, but he swished it on me he said if i lost 30lb before september 1st. he would get me tickets. and i did i lost 45lb. i got to go with my two friends. it was all worth it.thank you fo that wonderful night.(cant grt over it) it may be my first concert ever, but it wont be my last see you next time you come to san diego. p.s hayley you rock my socks of, josh your hot, taylor baby play that guitar, wooo.

Hayley, you totally rocked the girl scout look with your B.O.Y. shirt in Orlando at UCF!! Yall were sooooo amazing! It was my first show and definitely not my last!! You said at the concert that you guys are always coming down to the House of Blues?? How come I never hear about that...hmm odd. Anywho I've always wanted to design clothes too but I'm not too great at drawing so they always look funny. All your outfits from tour and the VMA's (2010) were awesome!! Love the pants with the black Xs on the knees!! you should totally come out with your own line. Just wanted to leave you this cuz u asked for feedback on the concerts. AMAZAZING!! haha =D yupp. oh also i wish you had asked for a drummer for misery business cuz i totally memorized that song on set!! of course Zac may have gotten madd...besides the fact you were still amazing, along with Jereme, Taylor, Josh, and Zac!! Hope to see you in orlando again soon!! and hope ill get the opportunity to meet you guys one time!! =) Rockin Out - Morgan =D

HIHIHIHIHI YELYAH!!!!!! i went to the concert on 7/27 for my 12 birthday which was on the 22. im so happy you came to connecticut becuz wallingford is really close to where i live in southington. its like the smallest town in the world(except for Forks) and its really boring there. it was thebestbirthday i ever had. i know im just another fan but im gonna tell you how awsome you are like everyone else. i wanna die my hair orange/red so it can look like yours. i sing too (and play guitar and piano) but my voice sounds pathetic next to yours. at the concert, my mom was all"HOW DOES SHE HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY???" she cant beleve how amazing you are. keep singing because you were BORN FOR THIS(one of my favorite songs.). my favorite songs in no perticular(is that how you spell it???) order are: misguided ghosts, born for this, fences, misery business, misery business acoustic version, brick by broing brick, crushcrushcrush, ignorance, playing god, for a pessimist, im opptimistic(love that name!!!!), careful, all we know, all i wanted, pressure, emergency, hallelujah, etc etc. you played most of those sopngs at the concert. my friend Sarah(thats also my name) was all"THEY NEED TO PLAY KMISERY BUSINESS AND ILL BE HAPPY" and then you got off the stage. when you got back on we all screamed. i will close this huge comment with: in the distances of space and time behind him, he thought he heasrd music too. but perhaps it was only an echo...
