Slaving away over a hot batch of songs. This album is starting to take shape, it's exciting.



Went to a pretty interesting affair a few nights ago at the Troubadour. Tom Morello was having a charity show/jam session to benefit the homeless. Saw some fairly impressive all-star jams. "Superstition" with Stewart Copeland of the Police on drums, Flea on bass, Tom Morello, Slash, and Steve Vai on guitars and Perry Farrell on vocals. It was cool seeing all these virtuoso performers in such a small club. Davey did "Fire Woman" with Steve Vai, Tom Morello, and Travis Barker, and then did "Ant Music" duetting with Perry Farrell.



What else. Nick 13 and I did some advanced shopping on sunday, 5 hours worth. He's a force to be reckoned with. That's all for now, but I'm going to try to be more prompt with my posting. Oh, by the way, I heard the new Motley Crue song today and it's pretty boss. Original line-up, sounds like Dr. Feelgood era Crue.


p.s. Darth Vader wins both!? What's so sexy about him? The heavy breathing? The Nintendo 64 controller glued to his chest?

lyssa said...

Darth Vadar's not as sexy as you ;D

Chelley said...

ohmy, what did you purchase on such a massive shopping excursion?

keep slavin away at that album, babe! <3

Michele said...

Good morning Jade !
is Travis still the best drummer around?

Ashleigh said...

Oooh, album taking shape is exciting.

Five hours of shopping? Wow. I have no idea how anyone could possibly shop for that long.

I have no idea what's so great about Vader. I have no idea what was so great about any of the poll options, come to think of it.

punk in writing said...

Sounds like a pretty awesome benefit. Wish I could have attended it.

Tell Nick he played a good show in Malmö. (The last date of TAs European Tour.) But he needs to rethink that no camera policy. I wanted to try out my new camera but I almost missed the show because I wasn't allowed to bring it inside.
Chip on my shoulder... :(

L-Roy said...

Damn jade, do you ever get a chance to sleep?

haha lolz at the n64 controller. never saw it that way.

Ema said...

HAHAHa i dont understand the darth vader either! i mean hes a platic head =S.. Who would wanna make out with a plastic face..... oohh the confuzzlement.

oohh its been nearly a a year since you played Give It a name.come back soon. =(

ema xxxxxx

Stix said...

Nick 13 the little shopper?
Wouldn't have picked it.

Vadar is NOT sexy at all.
I went for Pennywise, though, it could be a little awkward.

Can't wait for AFI's new toones.

Anonymous said...

Those performances sound like they were amazing. I wonder if there's video of this event anywhere...

leongyiting said...

Darth Vader isn't sexy, but he's sexier than the rest. Does that make sense?

heart-submerged said...

Out of those choices, yeah. I'd say vader too.

Would Predator count as beastiality?

Buuni said...

My friend and I put serious thought about going to see Tom Morello-- the concert in North Carolina, at least. Unfortunately, it didn't work out.

Five hour shopping sounds like it would even exhaust me!

What's so great about Darth Vader is that at some other point the other three gave me nightmares and scarred my childhood.

Anonymous said...

I now cannot unsee that N64 control.

Micahjk said...

sounds like your having fun:)

Anonymous said...

It's that rather sexy master appeal as well as that deep breathing and a damn stylish cape... does it for me that bad boy

HAZEL!theROCK. said...

How can you spend 5 hours shopping?! I think I'd drop down dead during the first hour. Wow, that sounded like an alliteration...

Darth Vader is weird. That's why I voted him.

<3

kirstie said...

Wow sounds fantastic! I want to go shopping too...I think I will soon. Yes. Oh and technically Anakin turns into Darth Vader while he's still human-esque. He's pretty sexy then, I must say.

<3

Karlye said...

It's so exciting to hear that the album is taking form, I can't wait for this new album.

I heard about that charity show, I also saw a video from that show of Davey doing a cover of Madonna's "4 Minutes" with everyone as well. That was interesting.

Jeez, 5 hours of shopping? Even just 3 hours exhausts me. Did you find or see anything that was mildly interesting?

Don't you know Jade? The newest thing is gluing a Nitendo 64 to your chest with a plastic black body suit and helmet. It's a total chick magnet. Darth had me from his first heavy breath.

Kily said...

Awesome Shoping!!!!
(im at school got to go!)
I LOVE YOU!

Yea Dark what ever his name is kinda sexy WHEN HE TURNS EVIL...
but i hate when they but the nintendo control thingy....

BYE!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

If it was your name on the
box,Every fan would go like
OMG!
XD i miss you!

I CAN WAIT FOR THE EP!!!
SO COOL!

(how to get money?)

Brittney said...

Well Darth Vader is better than making out with Pennywise the Clown! lol And I've always wanted to use a lightsaber so I picked Darth Vader to fight, too.

Yeah I really like that new Motley Crue song. I cant wait to see them at Cruefest.

Kily said...

If i had a BoyFriend....
Which that would never happend...
XD one guy bunp me cause i
felt in love to much...
bye
love you!

BlaqkAudio_AFI said...

I am glad you like the new album is coming together nicely.

I am glad you like the new motley crue song. Go see a concert. haha! I am.

Give Munch hugs and treats for me.

<3

camilla said...

I saw the videos of Davey performing both Fire Woman, 4 minutes and Ant Music, and I gotta say it looked pretty awesome! Would've been fun to be there :)

Shopping for 5 hours? Oh my, did you invest in anything particular? Say hi to Nick and tell him he made an awesome show in Sweden a few weeks ago!


...And I totally voted for Darth Vader too.

<3

Kily said...

5 hrs of shoping that would be so AWESOME for me...buing stuff...
COOL!
ok bye!
hugs to every body!
and to munch too!
XD

Boo™ said...

Really, are any of them sexy jade? I mean, really!!! Anyways, I wish I could've seen that show..sounds awesome!! Also, can't wait until the album is done and out!! It's like waiting for a great book...or movie, except it's neither..

I hope that you got some great things while you went shopping,sounds fun! I love going shopping with friends...:p

Much love!!
<3
Carolyn

*hilary said...

Awesome...I'm dying to hear some new AFI.

I also <3 Motley Crue. I saw them a couple years ago on their "Carnival of Sins" tour, and it was like being back in the 80s.

Scream To Pieces said...

I'm definately more excited about the album than you. If I have to wait any longer I might die.

5 hours of shopping!? Dude, whats wrong with you? Thats just insane! And I thought I shopped a lot.

As for Darth Vador. He's a guy with a lightsaber. He can kick ass. We love him for it. I always love the bad guy.

Was also wondering. In the Girls Not Grey music video why does the chick and the bunny walk between your legs!? Just a random thought. I was watching it again the other day and I got all curious. Haha xD. Don't mind me here with my curious and strange mind. Curiosity killed the cat after all. Aiish I'm rambling about nothing.

Have a good day Jade! Don't work too hard.

Lotsa love,

- MJ

sweetedge said...

'advanced' shopping? does that mean lists and coupons, maps, itineraries and sack lunches? or that you just shopped for a robot? or with one?

sounds like you've been enjoying yourself.

i'd like to see you post some more of your own photos!

Susan said...

didn't you know that men in masks and capes are sexy? how goth. i would much rather have had Dracula or Zorro to choose from though. or even Phantom. besides, the other options were just wretched. and for the record, i'd rather have an Atari 2600 strapped to my man.

Ninja said...

I bet I could out-shop you and Nick 13 ANY DAY.

I only regret having a million shoes, cds and clothes when I'm hungry.

It's so cold....

Dark Flame said...

I just can't wait for the new album, but good things take time and you have to rest, 5 hours of shopping that is a lot, but great,I want to see Davey singing Fire woman I'll find a video. Thanks for shareing this things it means a lot. Take care, Have a nice day. <33 Love you <33

jadeass said...

Davey that lucky bastard! Steve, Travis and Tom??? WOW! Did u get any pictures????

hehe 5 hours of shopping... why didn't u take me with u???

s.m.o'shea said...

Darth Vader has a LIGHT SABER, so he wins on both counts. How can you not vote for a guy with a light saber?

ciel said...

Dude, Darth Vader is just cool, that's why.
Did you see his outfit? Yeah.

5 hour shopping spree is nothing, haha I can go shopping all dayyyy, and then I'm pissed the stores here close at night=/

Jaden Nny said...

Everyone's been saying it's about the light saber. But it's really not. It's about using the force to choke somebody. That move KILLS Star Wars Battlefront. KILLS.

devin said...

yep. it's def the heavy breathing that did it for me ;)

Mina said...

ohhh boy, so many great musicians in one place I would have lost my mind..=) sure you had great time up there)
5 hours of shopping! lol you sound like my granny.. XD ..she spends so much time in the shop only cause she's too old and slow.. XDD

..very exited about the new album!=) and can't wait till you'll be on tour again..yeah yeah I keep on dreaming that maybe someday you'll come to russia and do a nice gig..

p.s. Darth-boys win!XD lol *thinking of joining the darkside..heared they've got cookies*

<3<3
>(//)<

Miraenda said...

Very nice long post. Thanks for the updates :)

Someone else asked it as a comment as well, but what is advanced shopping exactly? You were getting stuff you needed before you needed it? haha If that's the case, you really must have needed a lot of things, since 5 hours is tremendous to spend shopping.

As for Vader, I would have picked Pinhead, but he wasn't there. Vader was a poor second choice. A girl has to do what a girl has to do, though, when she doesn't have her ideal villain to pick from.

Cherol said...

Flea is my favorite. That sounds like it was a cool show.

Hah, I didn't think Darth Vader would win. He's not half as cute as Tim Curry. I didn't vote in that one. I would have if you had Jeff Goldblum as the Fly in there. He probably would have won.
True story.

Glad to hear the album news!

CM said...

Darth Vader is Dark And Low... You know? ;p

angelic_cries said...

Haha. Great. 5 hours worth of shopping? Sheeshhh. O_O

Whatever happened to the Blaqk Audio instrumental? Eh, I know you've got a lot on your plate so I won't hold it to you.

You didn't give us many choices! XD I mean..
Leatherface...very creep/nast.

Predator... how does that even take place? I don't want to be the one to find out. ICK.

Pennywise The Clown... You're insane if you think I'm gonna even come within 30 feet of him.

So... left me with Darth Vader.

There's my justification.
Now the question is, who would you rather make out with?

I can't wait for the new album. I saw some vids from the show you speak of, it looked very entertaining. =] Especially Davey singing 4 minutes by Madonna.

Love youuuu.

black won't make a difference said...

Yo, Jade-man! Lucky you to see that kind of a show. And what it comes to Darth Vadar... no comments. But I could take that Nindendo 64 controller from him since I somehow happened to lose my own. ;__;

Hope you had fun with Nick 13 and waiting for news of the album. :}

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

Did you avoid pants with bunnies on the butt?
If so, the blogging won't be delayed due to stitch removal hahaha.
Jade, you seriously made my day better

Jen said...

Darth Vader for both = heavy breathing hate sex.

YazFace said...

Hmm, I don't really think it's that he's sexy, just not as fucking creepy as the other ones. If anything, the heavy-breathing reminds me of some weirdo on the phone.

I never thought about that N64 bit, but now I have a powerful urge to play my green N64.

Shopping is fantastic, though I would have never expected that from him. I hope you bought yourself something pretty.

Any news about the upcoming album makes me giddy and impatient.

Orangutan's daughter said...

It's definitely the Nintendo 64 cus if you ever get bored, you have the thing right there to entertain yourself.

That sounds fun...This are the times in which I wish I could be a fly so I could easily sneak in :P

Café Blasphème said...

I voted Leatherface on both.

liebling said...

Well...I should think of the four choices you gave us, Darth Vader was still the sexiest.

So who would YOU make out with? And if you say Pennywise, I'll be even more scared of clowns than I am anyway.

katy said...

Vader's got a badass cloak.

darkness069 said...

Honestly, I picked him for being the less creppy one O.o

I saw some videos of the troubadour thing on youtube, seems like it was a cool thing! hope you had fun with it :)

So awesome to get news on the album! now i'm more excited to hear some of that work :D

PS: what did you bought with Nick13?

PPS: what/who would you have chosen from those polls?

xoxo

The Pomegranate Entry said...

That's so awesome about the new record. I can't wait.

Lydia-T said...

Man, I didn't vote, but if had done I woulda chosen Darth Vader as well. It's the cape and the cool mask. But... however awkward it would be, he should probably keep the mask on if I was gonna make out with him. Also, ANYTHING is probably better than making out with Predator, despite its badass fighting abilities/invisibility.

Anyway, I so glad to hear that things with the new/future album are going well. And obviously, shopping rules.

Trauty said...

It's the black, it's very sexy!

Abbi said...

Though you obviously don't get enough down time, the charity jam session and shopping excursion sound like they were pretty sweet.

Hahaha, I'm pretty sure that Darth Vader won because he was the least horrid of the choices given.

awokennightmare said...

Awesome... I wish I was there to see Davey, you, Tom and Slash together.

Christa said...

No girl could resist that heavy breathing. especially if heard over the phone. ;)

Anonymous said...

VADER IS THE MAN!!

So, who's your choice?

DQx

Miseria said...

Come on, Jade, N64 is possibly one of the sexiest gaming platforms EVER. It's only natural that Darth Vader would win that category.

Christina said...

wow. i never knew a man to shop as much as you ;P
Wonder what ya got with 5 hurs of shopping?
hmm.
anyways. that concert sounded pretty cool.
Keep up with that album.
Can't Wait!!!!!

Christina <3

finglitterfairy said...

Psh, 5 hours? Lightweight. :P

And anyway - Darth Vader, while he may be the man from the road safety adverts now, he was Hayden Christianson (shh, I can't spell and I just spent 7 hours in a studio, then 5 hours in work...)before...

Hope your writings going better than ours...we has a song about how the tiger on the animal biscuits bag looks like Davey...

Mr. Heater said...

Dude, that is fuckin' awesome. Ant Music is one of my favourite from Adam and the Ants. I can imagine it was fanominal. Did I spell that right? oh well. But boy, that sounded amazing and wish I could've attended.

Motley Crue is just that awesome, dude, that's why.

It's the controller man.. think of all the knobs to tweek..

JXH

pirate said...

:D

Darth Vader is friggin awesome!
But then again, so is Nick 13.

Anonymous said...

i really hope you dont go all mainstream, sell out, and face value again with this new album, jade.

Sarizzle said...

I agree with the 'heavy breathing hate sex' comment. Also, he's mysterious. Heavy breathing mysterious sex = win.

These Anonymous posters are kind of amusing..

Miss Murder1221 said...

yay, Jade, i am so excited!
the album will be great, of course, i can't wait!

oh, and about the darth vader thing, he is so sexy! i love the HOT little cape and the HOT plastic helmet! But, of course, you're one million bajillion times better.
love ya, babe! keep workin on that album!

Fluffo said...

Tom Morello floats my boat like you wouldn't believe.

books_and_coffee101 said...

LOL hey vader would be the easiest to make out with, because underneath that nintendo controller is the anakin skywalker from episode III(even if he is toasted like a marshmellow),jady. btw i'm drawn to nintendo controllers like paper clips to a magnent. besides, taking a look at predator, he'd probbably eat my face off. and leather face would probbably saw me into a human steak before i got within even a quarter of an inch to his face.

i could go for five hours of shopping, only if it included relief packages every 30 minutes, and don't work yourself too hard into the ground.

Nicool Rulz said...

Nintendo Controlers are irresistable

kayleigh epidemic ™ said...

I agree with Darth Vader being the less creepy one. Pennywise (and clowns in general) scare me shitless. As for shopping...
be my shopping buddy? (:

+ Can't wait for the album. Major excitement <3!

Candace said...

Darth has the powah...that's why people want to make out with/fight him. If you win the fight, you beat Vader! If you make out with Vader, you made out with Vader! It's a win, win.

You life sounds pretty fun right now. Keep it up!

michelleimperfect said...

cant wait to hear new stuff from you guys!

good luck!

jen said...

i can't wait for the album! i wish i could of seen davey's duet! the 5 hours of shoping sounds like fun :) anyway hope your doing fantastic <333 jen

Callisto said...

I wish I could have gone but at last school got in the way. I cant even shop for 2 hours let alone 5

Darth Vadar is all in black that is why i voted

Kaarlieaux said...

I think it's just that the other choices were pretty beastly.

x?xCassiex?x said...

Haha, I'd just rather him than the other people haha, lets face it, its kinda a hands down thing compared to a clown. Haha, but lets face it, he's also down right sexy! (jk)

Love ya Jade!

Carly said...

Jaaaaaade. Is it true the EP is coming out June 10?
love you :]

Shane said...

Hayden Christensen became Darth Vader in Ep. 3 herego I would willingly make out with hot Darth Vader as opposed to the frightening other choices. :]

Little Drummer Girl said...

The heavy breathing baby. And any man with a helmet that size, is bound to get the ladies.

(Yes, I know that I'm twisted. That's what everyone loves about me.)

cautionary whale said...

Well the other choices weren't very appealing. I mean, Pennywise would probably eat your face...literally.

impure0purest said...

Wow Nick 13 sounds like a shopping maniac!!! Did you get anything cool though, that's the important question... and how bad do your feet hurt.. if they hurt any more than a tiny bit, you have to invest in a pair of shopping shoes...

hehe I bet Nick has a pair..

Zack said...

Hey Jade, just wondering if you're gonna continue answering our questions in the previous post?

PS: Darth Vader would be sexier if he wears pink. On his pinkie :)

Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls said...

Thanks for slaving away over a hot batch of songs. Can't wait to hear them. I don't get what is so sexy about Darth Vader either. I don't find the heavy breathing OR the Nintendo 64 controller glued to his chest too attractive. Maybe i'm missing something?

fallnrayne11 said...

HAHAHA...it seems u are pretty prompt with you're posts, seeing as you're ahead of everyone else by a year "Wednesday April 22 2009" Lmaooooo

kombucha said...

darth vader is not as nasty/scary/insane as the other creepy villains, and also less likely to tear your face off while you're making out. duh!

firecrackerjackie said...

5 hours of shopping? man, i ain't brave enough to do that...anyways. i'm thinking i would have chose pennywise...to bad there wasnt a vampire on these lists.

emilierose said...

about darth vador- neither. its his shiny black exterior

:P

Hooray for the Motley Crue mention! One of my all time favorite bands.

GermaricanMix said...

Hey Vader is pretty awesome. And I think it's the voice. And the black. And the bad boy attitude.

Oh man, that reminds me, I need to go shopping. Not that you needed to know.

la.caída said...

I think Darth Vader sorta won by default. The other options weren't exactly the epitome of sexy, either...

ninjasareflippinsweet said...

Yes, he is sexy. Asthma is all the rage these days. It's HAWT. And Nintendo controllers are IN. Gosh, Jade. Why aren't you in with the times? It's a good thing you have us to bring you up to speed.

Glad the album is coming together so well!! I can't wait

lorral said...

Ohhh We thought it was YOU under that mask!

Anna! said...

Well, I always sort of wanted to be Darth Vader when I was little, and I was so excited when I had pneumonia and found out that when I breathed, I sounded like him...he's just cool, I guess.
(I look forward to more peculiar polls)

Thanks for continuing to slave away for us :)

Nika said...

Jade, have you not seen him before Obie-Won Kanobe sliced and diced him????
One of my friends older brother said he would go gay for him the first time he saw Episode Two!!!
Besides, Predator, though he kicks so much of the other three's scrawny/burnt/etc. butts, he would rip ur face off before you could even get near his face. Pennywise scared the living shit outta me. And I thought Wrong Turn 2 Unrated was messed up!!!!!!
Anyway, it would be so cool to fight Vader. I would so get ur bro Smith to tag team with me for that!!!

Vainglorious said...

I just have one question.

Why does your blog say it's 2009?

Are you writing to us from the future??

Anonymous said...

I love stupid people who can't spell Star Wars' characters names.

Pan said...

I can't believe you asked that question! Darth Vader is THE guy: tall, dark mysterious. And, underneath that whole revenge-of-the-charred-misunderstood-angry-jedi, he's totally marriage material.

Actually...what am I say? Darth Maul is waaaaay sexier.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Darth Vader isn't bad compared to the rest. And I'm digging the Nintendo controller thing.

follow the white rabbit said...

i voted for leatherface in the "rather fight poll"
so i hoped he would win.

my thoughts on darth vader being the winner.
well, sith happens! :)

allmylove said...

LOL you make me laugh my jade and how excited I am for the new album!!!! how I love to hear the new music you and davey come up with because it is too amazing. I am glad you got to see such an amazing show...but why didnt you join the fun with slash and tom? Oh how i would kill to see that....

hope you doing well love

Harlem. said...

I told you Darth Vader was a ladies man! I think it's the dark, slimming clothing that gets them all hot. Yeah.

Flea, Morello, Slash. I love them all. ...I'm...i'm not obsessed with guitar players, or anything. I'm not. I..i swear. XD

Oh, Motley Crue. Adoration. Chelsea was wearing their shirt yesterday. I don't see why you'd care, though. But i typed it anyway.

Good luck with things, Jade!
I'll tell Benny Lava you said hi.

Kayleigh Puget said...

I find it funny that I still own a Nintendo 64. You're just jealous aren't you?
Jade, if you don't fancy Darth Vader you're mad ;)
Jeez, I'd tapp that with eggs in the morning.

What am I on about?
Forgive me. It's late where I live.

art biter said...

Slaving away over a hot batch of new songs...double, double, toil and trouble, my darkling fiends. I grow impatient...

Darth Vadar...heavy breathing, yes...slow talking man with a slow hand, except when it comes to wielding a light saber...not to mention the dark, sexy voice of James Earl Jones...way more sartorial nous than Pennywise...and Leatherface just needs to find a better plastic surgeon.

However, if I were to make out with (and fight) anyone, it would probably be the Chumscrubber...for a messed-up dude at least his head is in the right place.

kamuix212 said...

Shopping? Find anything good?

Miranda said...

that club thing sounds awesome. wish i coulda seen it. and nick 13 likes shopping, who knew?

can't wait for the crue!! it'll be sweet!

and come on, darth vader? how can you not love him?! you nailed it with the heavy breathing. such a turn on.

nightmarenikki said...

Vader is sexy because he's so mysterious...even though this lady has seen both episodes 6 and 2/3 ( >_> Hayden Christansen is a douche and we all know it) and is totally aware of what he looks like beneath it all... Vader...is such a bamf! Also, would be the funnest to fight what with light saber battles and all. :x

Can't wait for new muzacks :D<3<3<3 Btw, you know we'd all make out with you before nintendo controller chest, right?

PoisonPrincess said...

Feelgood-era Crue is probably my favorite. Either that or Shout At The Devil. But still, it's cause for celebration. So's the new album.

much love!

Jenni said...

Vader? i picked him cause i seen pennywise and got too scared to pick anything above, ya see i recently watched IT and now im totally freaked.

I scare easily, like really easily....

Anyway..
Super excited about the new album!! =D

Much love =)


Jenni

Ashley said...

Maybe it's the fact Vader doesn't look like he has so much of a chance of eating your face off.

Jose said...

Well at least Davey is still a Cult fan, as opposed to remaining a Misfits/Samhain/Danzig fan.

Ina Something said...

I thought that said "Slaving over a batch of hot dogs" *shrugs*



It's the Nintendo Controller. Duh.

aleah said...

Holy Mother of Rock N Roll. I am fairly certain I would

darth vadar is pretty sexy since he was originally hayden christensen but then again hayden is nothing compared to the one the only JADE PUGET.....yawn
