Panic! At The Disco frontman brings song, prizes to Vancouver
Radio contest win nets man $1,000, special performance, 1972 Impala

Max Andersen will have quite a story to tell when classes resume at Evergreen High School this week.

The frontman from one of her favorite bands, Panic! At The Disco, rolled into the 17-year-old’s apartment complex Sunday afternoon behind the wheel of the red, 1972 Chevrolet Impala convertible from the band’s “Miss Jackson” music video.

Singer and guitarist Brendon Urie parked the Impala, and while meeting with a group of about a dozen fans, hugged Max and let the Vancouver teen take a selfie with him.

Max looked at her family and mouthed “oh my god” after embracing the rock star.

Then Brendon slicked his hair back under his baseball cap, slung a guitar over his shoulder and belted out a couple of songs while standing near the hood of the classic car.

And that wasn’t all.

The car was a gift for Max’s father, Neil Andersen, who had won the Impala and the chance to meet Brendon in a nationwide iHeartRadio contest put on by Clear Channel Broadcasting.

Max might know each word to every Panic! At The Disco song, but Neil said he’s a pretty big fan too.

"I always loved their music," Neil said. "I now know everything Panic! At The Disco plays."

Neil said he was driving to work at about 5 a.m. one recent day when the radio station he listens to, 102.3, Alternative Radio for Portland, asked listeners to text in the word “brother.”

Neil works as an engineering technician for Oregon Aero in Scappoose, Ore., a company that manufactures airplane seats.

A couple of minutes after he sent the text, Neil got a phone call and learned he had won $1,000. He also was entered into a drawing with 239 other people around the country to win the chance to meet Brendon and get the car.

Since discovering he won that nationwide contest, “I’ve been riding on cloud nine,” Neil said, adding that some of his coworkers have asked him to buy them lottery tickets because he’s been so lucky.

On Sunday afternoon, the Andersen family, along with a few friends and neighbors, sang along with Brendon as he performed two songs: “Miss Jackson” and “This is Gospel.” The singer appeared amused by the group’s enthusiasm and broke into a laugh a couple of times as he sang.

After his brief performance, he joked that the group was better at backup singing than his band. “You guys are loud, that was awesome,” Brendon said.

Max then gave Brendon a drawing she sketched of him, and admiring the picture, he told her: “You’re super talented. That’s insane.”

After snapping more photos with his fans and autographing the glove box of the Impala, Brendon ended his 20-minute meetup with the Andersen family and was whisked off to prepare for his evening concert at the McMenamins Edgefield Amphitheater in Troutdale, Ore.

After the star left, Neil said he was happy to see Brendon was “such a standup guy.” He also called Sunday one of the best days of his life.

An Impala is “one of the cars I’ve always loved, and now I own one.”

Happy Birthday American Idiot |  September 21st, 2004
↳ It’s crazy to think that 10 years ago I got into a band that would change my life forever- and it started with one album. If this album hadn’t come along, I wouldn’t have picked up a guitar or become the music fanatic that I am today. For the first time in my life I began to understand the importance of forming my own opinions and my own sense of individuality. I didn’t know it was possible to feel so strongly about music until I heard American Idiot for the first time.  This album means more to me than I could possibly put into words and these 3 guys from the Bay Area made me a better person. I couldn’t be more grateful.

BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead! 
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.

Wow

Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.

^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons. 

"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.

I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.

"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
Fuck you.

^ THE LAST COMMENT THOUGH FUCKIN AMEN
