This Magic Affair

I posted this yesterday as a Sunday afternoon piece but I may as well link it here. The new Daily Banter column from yours truly details my fanboy love for My Chemical Romance, and spells out why I'm going to miss them.

Here's the opening shot:

"I’m way past the point in my life where the break-up of any band should provoke much of a reaction from me. I’ve got day-to-day concerns right now that are a hell of a lot more pressing than whether a bunch of people whose music I happen to like will continue making music that I happen to like. And yet My Chemical Romance were never just another band for me. Maybe it’s fitting that I feel the way I do about their recent break-up given that I was always willing to admit to one of my favorite things about them as a band: they made me feel like a kid again."
