Me Overseas

While searching & searching for a worthy band to grace the new & imporved Fuzzyneonllama I bumped into a worthy opponent . Two words… Me Overseas. These New Jersey boys formed summer 2009, sooner or later making up one kick a** alternative rock band. Even though their very new they seems like they have been together for years, and you can tell with their song “Quit on Love” you know how to give a music lover chills. “I’ll be your kisser , I’ll be your mister & I’ll just quit on love for a while” , that was just a sample of their catchy relateable song lyrics. These jersey boys definately seem like they desereve way more attention then “the situation”:

1.So how did you guys start?

We’re all friends from different bands and we came together and started Me Overseas.

2.Where did the band name come from & what does it mean to you guys?

The band name is from a lyric from a Get Up Kids song called Out Of Reach. We think the name is a positive concept and that anything is possible.

3.Where do you wanna see Me Overseas in 2 years?

Touring and hopefully headlining shows.

 4.How would you describe your music?

If Paramore and Foo Fighters had a baby, and that baby dated The Starting Line, and they had a baby, it would be us.

5.Who are some of your biggest musical muses, that you highly look up to?

We all have different influences that compliment each other.

6.How do you go into writing a song, does one guy do it do all of you pitch in with some ideas already in play or just write what comes to you lol?

Someone comes up with an idea and then we all collaborate on it.

 7.How have your fans affected your music?

They have affected us, but not in the sense of writing. That concept hasn’t reached us yet.

 8.What music can you absolutely not stand?

Music that’s not genuine, or any music that has no authenticity.

 9.You guy’s song Quit on Love seems very personal & I know lots of people can relate to the lyrics, is that something that you wanted to accomplish with the song & was that song inspired by a personal experience?

Yeah it was inspired by personal experiences, but we want people to relate and have a connection with us.

 10.Would you really quit on love lol?

No of course not, you can’t really quit on love. This song explains that sometimes its hard to find love but to always be hopeful.

 11.So I’ve interveiwed Hart Attack twice before, are you guys a fan of theirs?

Hart Attack turned into Me Overseas when we took a new a direction.

 12.How has music helped you in life, weather listening to it or playing it?

It’s therapeutical, like a healing aspect. Sometimes it’s the only thing you have… and we are all passionate about music in general.

 13.Fill in the blanks…. I would love to play with “_____” on the planet “________”.

Jimmy Eat World on Earth and maybe Mars.

 14.Ever see you guys being famous rockstars one day?

Knock on wood but we hope for the best and take what we can get.

15.Alrighty what did you guys think of the interveiw did I do a good job lol?

(about a month ago my crappy kodak went to camera heaven)

Before we begin…

Even though I’ve done this “flip the script” interveiw twice before I feel like myself & the blog are in completely new places now so this should be fun?

Q: Where did the name come from?

A: My name? Oh the blog name, haha uh I just wanted something really random & memorable & catchy I look 3 random words so we now have FUZZY/NEON/LLAMA. Some girl claimed I stole it from her but if I did it was never intented. It was kinda like my mind was a hat full of strange words & i just happened to pick those three.

Q: When & how did you start blogging?

A: At about 12 kind of just a personal blog but then it got too personal & i starting writing about things I liked instead of my life. When I was 13 my blog was all about boys, girls, drama, ect (haha I thought things were hard then) then when I was 14 I read alot so I decided to make my blog into an “online magazine”. I talked about books, movies, music, any thing really and it was called Fourteen Magazine haha ironic. When I turned 15 I got more serious about it  & now fuzzyneonllama.com has had a few stages but now I really know where I wanna go with this one & i’m really excited about it too.

Q: Rumor has it your cutting fashion out of fuzzyneonllama.com all the way, true?

A: Here’s my say on this, because even though I’ve been approached about it a couple of times I havent really gotten to justify my choice. Fashion in my generation is quite strange. Its all about whatever makes you look cool. I appericiate high fashion, old school Chanel or a some funky looking hippie rocker whatever your style is, something with a story in its past of present. There seems to be no such thing as orginallity anymore though only a few people & designers I know of still truely belive in it so until that changes there will be a shortage of fashion here but not tottally cut off, fashion has always been a big part of my life & blog.

Q: Where do you see yourself in 8 years?

A: Hmm lets see in 8 years I will be 23 years old wow! Well I want to be that person at concerts taking pictures (with an awesome camera of course!) & running around backstage interveiwing people. If I’m lucky & I accomplish my goals by 23ish I see myself & my staff of friends in a loft in Los Angeles working for our own music/photography/fashion/awesome magazine I want it to be ours not just mine. That would be great!

Q:Where do you see FNL in a year?

A: I really wanna do great things with FNL this year so hopefully not in a fuzzy llama cutting factory!

Q: What music do you listen to before or after you blog?

A: Haha good question! Depends…but most of the time you can find my listening to Everclear, The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, The Beatles,Acrtic Monkeys, Nineball, Manchester Orchestra, Jesse Morrow, NeverShoutNever, or T-Swizzle (taylor swift) 😀

Q: Your about me says your a amature photography why do you consider your self that?

A: I’ve been told I’m really good at it just with my crappy kodak camera I took some great stuff but photgraphers if you havent notices are very humble. We know when we look at a picture they took they go, “whoa I took that!? Dang i’m good!”. Haha its something I really love doing & I want to continue doing it somewhere in my career in the future because well i’m good at it & i know it. I

Q: What do you love more fashion, music, or photgraphy?

A: Jesus Christ why would you ask such a thing!? Haha um depends on my mood that day. I know with fashion I have to be in a certain mood to love it at the moment. But with music & photography I love those all the time & really can not decide

Q: Quick! Name 3 things you love that are not those!

A: JESUS CHRIST, BUFFALO EXCHANGE, NOT EATING MEAT (i’m a vegitarian)
