I have a nice feature in the new Guitar World, here's one of the pages from it. The pictures were shot in what seemed to be an authentic crackhead hotel.

Very nice! Can't wait to see the whole magazine.

Did you see the previews for the movie Youth in Revolt yet?

From what i've seen, it differs from the book a bit. "Carlotta" isn't going to be in it, kinda bummbed about that. I think it still looks funny though.

Kera said...

What is it with you and crackheads??? XD Put your glasses in their puke, now you're in a crackhead hotel?? lol

Nice.

kirstie said...

Great picture, Jade! Looking good :D

Lindsay said...

This article=love. The way they describe your skills and whatnot is exactly what I hear, as a listener.

Jordan said...

Was this shot before or after you scored tons of hawt chicks and threw the T.V. out of the window?

Jemmeh said...

Are you wearing glasses in that picture, or do I just need to put mine on? o_O


Late night post for ya lovely. <:

It's good to come home from a crappy day at work to have something to read. I've gotta get a copy of that mag so I can read the rest of the article.... Hmm.




You're always so cool in all your pictures. Is there a secret formula to this? P:

zahid said...

Emi said...

We have a lot of cheap crack-house motels here in Michigan...

Kayleigh Control said...

Jade, you get cuter every day. I can't wait to see you in April! Is there any chance you guys could come out and say hi to me after the show (6th April at Brixton) cause it's the night before my 18th birthday and would mean the world to me :)

Love you! xx

Ericka said...

super pumped to get this issue!!!!! you are AMAZING!!!! the intro to Torch Song is sooo good! keep on rockin man!

Pookha said...

How nice! I'd been looking for the article's appearance.

Must go buy.

Emme said...

what i read thus far seem to be an honest to god innocent coming together and binding of the album crash love (saw the mention of Blaqk audio - nice placement)

Hey J.P. you know your side profile shots/pics are just as amazing as frontal view of you but truthfully speaking what exactly were you staring at out that window hmmm?

lalalala
**think to self**--I seriously need to learn an instrument

littleladzinski said...

I guess I'll be heading to Borders's magazine section soon... (:

Karlye said...

Awesome! I'll definitely pick it up once it comes out! And that is a very nice picture by the way, everything about it (the composition, surroundings, light source, you :) ) works very nicely together.

Jadddde! Went to the oakland show last friday, and if you were in any proximity to the ticket window when metric was playing, you would have heard the most pist off afi fan ever lol I bought a ticket off of craigslist from some random kid i met up with for 80 bucks, and it ended up being counterfeit =( I ended up buying one off of a scalper but it was a seat ticket, also sad face. Oh well, atleast i still got to see you guys rock the house. Cant wait for that crash love tab! haha

SALLYANDELLENLOL said...

Guess which magazine I'm going to buy next. Go on, guess. :P

And this next part is totally unrelated to this post, but I'm excited that this occured to me and feel the need to share it with someone involved, such as yourself. (Should you even read this, first of all, and also if you have any idea of what I'm talking about.)
So for my English class I'm reading 1984. I'm going to assume you've read it too because well, in all likelihood, you probably have. Now, I don't want to write a whole damn essay analyzing this interpretation in a silly blog comment, but it was apparent to me that, thematically, Crash Love and 1984 are incredibly similar. You can draw parallels between just about every song and some aspect of the novel. Haha this is kind of silly but I just thought it was an interesting thought :P ...

Your playing really is wonderful on Crash Love.

But, I uh have one request.
At the concert in Denver, Dec. 6, I saw smith and pointed him out to my dad. He saw his amazingly epic beard and is trying to grown one like that himself, and he would like to see that documentary about his beard that you promised us..... So can you please post it? For my daddy? Everyone?

AFI needs to win a grammy because it is the best band and its about fucking time ok?

Anonymous said...

"You don't wanna fuck with Shady cuz Shady will fuckin kill you"

eminem said that. I hope that made you laugh as much as it made me laugh, after all, we all need to laugh to have a postive outlook on life

Turnip Seed Anarchy said...

I sincerely think you are a musical genious, only 1 question: why don't you play your solo/shred in concerts like you did in your medicate video? Just wondering. Anyway, I'm of good cheer and I just wanted to wish you and AFI a merry Christmas/happy holidays. But please do consider my inquiry the next time you play medicate or a song with a solo/shred in it.

Christy Crawley said...

Guh. I'm a late commenter on this one. I feel bad. But I was out of town for a funeral, so it's a valid excuse.

Anyway, before you lose interest in this comment, I have a quick story to tell you. It's about how I should never try one of your dance moves, or else I will end up failing. Horribly.

I was wearing my favorite bathrobe (green with rainbow polka dots) and had just finished running the bath water. I went over to my computer, so I could hear some AFI while I was taking a bath. iTunes was on shuffle, so "Torch Song" came on.
You have a very awesome guitar intro, so I air guitared it when I turned to go back into the bathroom. I then decided to do your awesome little spin-around dance move that doesn't have a name.

During mid-spin, I tripped over air. (Your angry wrath perhaps..?) This trip caused me to land face first into the bathtub. My favorite bathrobe got all wet. XD

The moral? There is no moral. Silly Jade.

Hey dude ur awesome. Anyway this has nothing to do with crackheads or their hotels but i was in my french class and we are on the chapter that has the french names for food and fruit and stuff and there on the page i was looking at was a bottle of olive oil and on it in big letters was PUGET and i started laughing histerically and my friend in front of me turned around and asks me what im laughing at and i showed him and he yells GAY! Which made me laugh harder i just thought i would tell you that luv ya!

Charlie. said...

Good to know I'm not the only one who describes things with the word "crackhead". Very nice Jade :P

Kaylee said...

I'm broke due to this damn economy but I had to read this article...which meant standing in Barnes & Noble (never a bad thing by itself) but because Guitar World apparently doesn't want the masses reading their article for free I had to break into the magazine. I'm not sure what penal code that's illegal under...but I did it for the sake of you Jade :0)

Krissy said...

I wish I could pull off awesome like you can. ;)
And now I know what I'm going to go buy... :]]
Btw, good job with Crash Love, I can not put into words how beautiful you guys are. Thank you. :)

Jamekae said...

Kera stole my crack-head puke + Jade's glasses comment thing I had planned... I still want to bring a little more happiness into your day, so I'll just say that Too Late for Gods is still not getting old after god knows how many plays. It may not be the most intricate guitar work you've written, but it's composition just radiates this poignant quality.

Unsure if that made any sense, but if you've ever listened to Brand New, you'd understand where I'm coming from (I think, I've actually never seen anyone in AFI talk about the band, perhaps you haven't heard them, in which case I highly recommend The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me and Deja Entendu, I think they'd tickle your fancy. Actually, I just remembered that I read a review in a music magazine that reviewed that referred to Deja Entendu as a less theatrical Sing the Sorrow.

MamaDebs said...

Beautiful picture, so very Jade.

It is certainly interesting for me to read the article. Thank you for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read more on that blog soon.

No comment, Elena and Allie.
