A (Bobby) Long Night

Posted in Mix Tape with tags , , , , , on August 21, 2009 by awesometeenmag

So we here at ATWIM have to confess something: while we actively follow the RPattz Music Possee—the holy trinity that is Bobby Long, Sam Bradley and Marcus Foster—on Twitter, we haven’t heard a ton of their music. Sure, sure, we support those crazy Brits in all their magical, musical endeavors. We just haven’t been lucky enough to see/hear them play.

Until last night.

After a couple weeks of emailing with his manager and grinding our teeth in giddy excitement, we got to see Bobby Long play at one of our fave ATL hipster joints. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect. M has pretty snooty musical taste (or so she’d have you believe, but she does have a Paula Abdul record…and the New Kids greatest hits CD. That is, if A ever gave it back to her). And A was just excited to be that close to someone whose lips have most likely been on the same frothy pint glass as Rob’s. It’s like we were kissing him by association. (Not a stretch at all!)

Anyhoo, after a slight snafu about press passes at the door (editor’s note: Bobby’s show was well worth the $15 we weren’t supposed to pay, so we let it slide!), we entered the world of Bobby Long fandom. Which oddly included an eclectic group of rowdy Twi-moms, randy girl-on-girl couples and too-cool-for-school hipsters. Way to bridge the gaps, Bobby!

A spent the evening running around with her camera to add to her growing portfolio of too-many-Twi-photos. M hung with one of our fave boys, BJW, who had no idea what he was getting himself into, but agreed that Bobby put on a good show. 

We’re planning to run an actual review on the ATMusic site, but we’ll say this: British boys with plaid shirts, sultry voices and a guitar are really freaking hard to resist! And Bobby was no exception. He made the blues hot! And man did the crowd LOVE him! (Not that we blame them.) They knew every word to every song, cheered (inappropriately loud at times) every time he tried to speak, and steadfastly refused to move from their prime viewing locations in order to facilitate A’s shooting. (Thanks surly hipster girl for eventually sharing your wall space with me!)

Though we’re still thrilled that we got so close to someone who’s so close to RPattz, we gotta say: Bobby totally holds his own with talent (and hotness). And on that note, we’re gonna post some pics from last night. We’ll be joining you in staring at them while we listen to “Who Have You Been Loving” on repeat. 

PS A’s Photoshop isn’t working, so there’s no watermark on these. If you want to use them, fine, just give us a shout-out and post our link 🙂 Thanks!!

New Moon Mix Tape!

Posted in Mix Tape, New Moon with tags , , , , , , , on July 31, 2009 by awesometeenmag

Recently, Co-Creator A downloaded a slew of pop songs to her iPod. (She’s not ashamed to say these included the new CDs from Ashley Tisdale and Demi Lovato). However, it was while listening to Jordin Sparks’ latest offerings that she found what could be the perfect anthem for New Moon. The song? “Papercut”. The explanation? Unnecessary.

(To be clear, there were two lines in this song that had to be removed because they made no sense. We’re sure JS doesn’t mind—she’s obvs a New Moon fan!)

So, without further ado, we bring you…

Papercut

I’m okay, I’m okay
don’t keep asking me I might disintegrate
what do you want? I’ve moved on
Everything is going well, at least that’s what I tell myself 
I wish I was the tin man so I wouldn’t have a heart to break. 

I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, are just drops in the ocean baby
You barely even cross my mind no, no
and it doesn’t hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut,  paper cut… yeah

you don’t care
how it burns, how it stings 
just cause you can’t see it bleed
doesn’t mean it don’t go deep
I wish I was the tin man so I wouldn’t have a heart to break.
I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, all these drops in the ocean baby
You barely even cross my mind no, no
and it doesn’t hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut, paper cut
The more I give, the less I get
sometimes I wish that we never met 
cause I was fine ‘til you broke through
But don’t worry baby ill get over you…
By tomorrow or the next day, or they next day, or the next day

I’m okay, I’ll be fine.
I only think about you half the time
Yeah
I’m okay, I’ll survive.
I only think about you half the time
All these tears, were just drops in the ocean baby
You never even cross my mind no, no
boy you wish it hurt that much
It was only a paper cut
It’s only a paper cut, a paper cut
I’m okay, I’m okay

 

That's gonna leave a mark!

That's gonna leave a mark!

PM (Breaking) Dawn

Posted in Mix Tape with tags , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by awesometeenmag

So we at ATWIM are admittedly pretty good at indulging our inner (pre-) teen. We love a good gab sesh with friends, crushing on RPattz and practicing writing Mrs. Co-Creator A or M Cullen in our work planners. So it should be no surprise to you that we’re compiling a mix tape to honor all things Twilight. From Rosalie’s angsty tude to Bella and Edward’s love affair, we’ve found songs that fit them all and we’re bringing you the lyrics in a new department we’re calling Mix Tape.

First up, a song from before many Twilight fans were born. Co-Creator A has been saying for months that it’s THE perfect song for Edward and Bella in New Moon, so what better introduction to our mix tape than PM Dawn’s “Die Without You”? (Song available on iTunes. Mix tape available in our cars.)

Songwriters: Cordes Jr., Attrell, Steph

Is it my turn to wish you were lying here
I didn’t dream you
And I can’t sleep, babe

Is it my turn to fix you as my world
Or even imaginary emotions
Tell myself anything

Is it my turn to hold you by the hand
Tell you I love you and you not hear me
Is it my turn to totally understand
To watch you walk out of my life and not do a damn thing

[chorus]
If I could give away
The feelings that I feel
If I could sacrifice
Whatever baby, whatever baby
If I could take apart
All that I am
Is there anything i would not do
Since I’d
Die without you

Oh, I apologize for all the things I’ve done
Now I’m underwater and I’m drowning
Is it my turn to be the one to cry
Isn’t it amazing how somethings
Completely turn around

So take every little piece of my heart
Take every little piece of my sould
Take every little bitty piece of mind
Cuz if you do
Then I
Die without you
