I spent quite a couple of hours trying to find what the symbols on the bad luck bracelet mean (the one in the box set). It was kinda hard because I didn't even know what language they were but it all points to Chinese. I used this website to write the characters and translate them and double checked with Google translate. This is how far I've gotten (not every character could be recognized):

辛钅竟 ... ? actually or 碎钅竟 ... actually broken
黑扌苗 ... Black Rolling Miao
十三 ... thirteen

I'm not sure what anything means but I'm sure some people, like me, were curious. Also, on the symbols 十三, they're used on Mcr's website for the Tour section. I have no idea what the number thirteen has to do with...anything, really but they're the only ones I'm sure were recognized properly xD

Feel free to try it yourself and double check and stuff. I'll try to post a photo of the bracelet for those of you who don't have it.

黑猫 is "black cat". I can't remember the first one off the top of my head, but the second and third characters you've translated should be all one character. I'll see if I can figure out "actually broken" and get back to you. Smile

ETA: 辛镜 is supposed to be "broken mirror" or "breaking mirrors", I think... I've never seen 辛 used that way, but I'm no expert, and it seems to fit with the theme of bad luck.

You know, I have to wonder if the appearance and disappearance of the red makeup on Party Poison's neck in Na Na Na has any significance... Some part of me is starting to think the video might just be non-linear, with SING stuck in the middle somewhere.

So, they're literally bad luck beads. Broken mirrors, black cats, thirteen...I bet you'll find stuff about ladders and salt and stepping on cracks too.

At above post: I started to reply that you couldn't be right, because Grace is with them in NaNa and they go save her in Sing.....but you could totally be right. O_O

Oh my god, I can't believe I didn't see that! Haha, wow, this makes more sense.
Thank you, Ampersand! :]

Here are the bits of the characters of the bracelet for those who have no idea what we're on about:
Broken mirrors See, it has this other character in the front but I couldn't find it... Maybe that makes more sense now?

No worries, A World Unseen. I've got the mirrors one: 碎镜 is "broken mirror(s)"/"breaking mirrors". Mystery solved!

@DrDeathDefying - Open up some Power Pup, and lay back on your Thunderdome. Here's the smoother side of the apocalypse http://youtu.be/x8W4DEMUSeM

@DrDeathDefying - Pony is shiny. Overloaded since Battery City. Our bundle of killjoy has been keeping us on our toes. http://youtu.be/LHXeo57xj3k

So, they're obviously gearing up for the new video release.

And Dr. DD and show pony are gay.

That's what I thought when I read that! "Ok, they seem to be confirming the theory that they're together and...is Grace their adopted kid?"

I think what this version shows better is how stunned Party Poison is left after unmasking the drac (which got him caught). And I loved being able to hear the sound effects!

i think that is the most important moment in the entire video, and i'm glad they accentuated it this time.

and i love grace's screams.
i mean, they're terrible, but it adds so much.

Lycia you're alive! ~~~

Korse will be happy with the added voice over and body bag scene. I agree though, it was pretty fantastic with the sound effects and everything. I think I said a while ago it would be cool if they did that....BL/IND is watching.

"Gerard told MTV Spain that there is not going to be an continuation for Sing, even though there will be another video (besides Planetary)."

Does anyone have a link to the video? (i guess the quote is from the interview they did in valencia the other day)

It was a very short, written interview in Spanish (it said nothing interesting besides that), I read it and I can understand how some people would interpret it wrong. I'll paste here what I said on Tumblr:

I think that’s not what he said. I read the interview (Spanish is my language) and something was lost in translation. From Gerard’s answer, it seemed to me he was asked (or at least that’s what he understood) if this next video/single was the continuation to SING (even if the question came out more like “will there be a continuation for SING?). Gerard answered: “No, not for the moment, we’ll have a third video (he said we WILL, not might, like a sure thing) but we don’t know how it’ll be”. Now, people, think. 3rd video. Planetary will be the third video, but if he said “we don’t know how it’ll be” he’s not talking about it. IF he was talking about a random video after Planetary he’d say 4th. So, conclusion, he’s referring to the 3rd video of the Killjoys saga.

So, he meant not for the moment because they still have to decide what to do for it. Smile
