I JUST GOT THE E-MAIL FOR APPROVAL YESSSSS

but thanks all the same for the suggestion, dude. I was about to write the other email

Apr 17 '14

So last week I took the train to Chicago alone and visited Columbia College over spring brake. I’m making a documentary for class about that real “first time laving the nest/solo journey”, and figured the song “Chicago is so two years ago” by Fall Out Boy would be perfect to fill the parts I couldn’t fill with words. So I asked my teacher, who runs our class much like a real production company, if I could use the song even though I don’t have the rights to it. he said if I contact the management and get a yes, then yes.

So later that hour, I drafted an e-mail that, after asking some people who said it sounded professional enough, I sent to Crush Music, FOB’s Management, if if I could use the song. (now, i’m not entirely sure if it’s the management you send the inquiry to, but I couldn’t find any suitable contact info for Fueled By Ramen, the label the album was originally put out on)

This is the original e-mail:

Good Morning,

My name is Natalie Thomas, I am a student at Royal Oak High School, currently in the video production program, and am the student tech for the local district public access TV channel. I would like permission to use Fall Out Boy’s song “Chicago Is So Two Years Ago” from their album Take This To Your Grave for a video.
Recently I went to Chicago to visit Columbia College, as I plan to attend Columbia for film and video in the future. I documented the entire journey, and feel that this song would fit it perfectly. The video would be shown within my school as well as on our district access channel. I would include proper credit in the credits as well as in the video.
I am reachable at any time by e-mail, or by phone Monday-Friday any time after 3pm Eastern time or any time on the weekends at (Phone number)
Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

(name, title, etc)”

What i’m asking is for help; who do I ask to use the song? how do I contact them? Help me spread the word, Maybe the band can help, so get them to notice this?

EDIT: I GOT THE CONFIRMATION, I GOT THE YES, THE GO-AHEAD, ALL SIGNS ARE GO! WOO!

SIGNAL BOOST

Reducing an out of context picture of strangers to inspiration porn is so dehumanizing.

Oh internet you are so full of dark and light I just don’t even know what to make of you sometimes!

I think it was arround the time people begain saying “they didn’t say that (word-for-word), they said something like that”

uh Hi everyone!! i know this is  kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.

Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.

Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.

Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.

Donation for Transplant

Facebook Page

There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.

Thank you so much.

REBLOG THIS ! You can save Ashley’s life… I know we can do it ! It’s only $10,000… It’s nothing for tumblr ! WHERE ARE THE NOTES!

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

That was beautiful

I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.
