Mars is coming.

I have this in poster form. It will now be adorned with a concert ticket.

It has finally happened. 30 Seconds to Mars are coming to New Zealand for one show only. I am so excited. Words on a page cannot show my excitement – just like you can’t read sarcasm in text. And I don’t like using exclamation marks because they are overused and ridiculous. This is a lie, but why would you trust me?

But I am not being sarcastic in this moment, contrary to my personality. 30 Seconds to Mars are one of my favourite bands. Their music is awesome, but yet a lot of people bag on them because they say Jared Leto is a douche. Well he’s not.

He’s dreamy.

And he’s coming to New Zealand. Swoon, girls, swoon. (Yes, I am one of those swooning girls.)

Pre-sales start tomorrow. I’m so there. If I don’t get one, someone’s going to die. Because it will mean I have to get up before 9am on Thursday to try to get one. Note: my wake up time is never before midday. If anyone asks, there is no nine in the morning. When someone mentions there is one, my reply usually is: “They make one of those in the morning too?” I’m allowed this liberty, because I’m unemployed. I blame the economic downturn, which has affected the journalistic job market. Others blame laziness. I’m okay with that.

In commemoration of 30 Seconds to Mars finally coming to New Zealand and the start of their ‘This Is War’ tour, I implore you to change profile pictures/avatars etc (whatever the fuck you want to call them), to the Triad, which you can find on my Twitter page:, just click on mine (Note: This is my attempt to gain more followers, because it would be really easy to just insert a picture, but I don’t want to. Why should I when I can use this opportunity for personal gain? Don’t judge me.) I’ve also done it on Facebook, but that’s private. You can’t go there. Unless you’re a friend. And I’m selective of my friends. Deal with it.

What was the point of this post again?

Oh yeah, 30 Seconds to Mars. Their latest single is, in fact, This Is War, and the music video has been recorded and due out soonish. When it is, be sure to check back for my views on it. For now, you will have to settle for The Kill as the attached video, because there is a moment when Jared Leto is face-to-face with himself and the only words that ever come to mind then are “HOOK UP”. You’ll see. Just watch.


This is war. Are you ready?
