Two great little pieces from/about Weezer: one and two.

How about some pictures of Scotland?

Jail is tough.
Tell him that he set you up.

I'm honestly not trying to say anything, I just thought this was funny looking.

You're Ulysses!
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared
to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people do
understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once
brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in
the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you
additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

VAN HALEN have finally made an announcement.. a vague announcement, but an announcement nonetheless.

You can check out 4 songs from the new Ben Kweller CD "On My Way" right here.
You can then buy the disc at the record store of your choice on April 6.

The official site for BATMAN BEGINS is now online.
There's nothing there yet, except for the new logo/emblem, but it does look pretty right on.

Speaking of superhero movies, rumor has it that Jake Gyllenhaal is Kevin Smith's first choice to play The Green Hornet.

Quite a bit of news on Sin City.

"Show of hands: who here misses the days of extended guitar solos, striped leotards, falsetto vocals and songs demanding, 'Get your hands off my woman'? Yeah, me too. THE DARKNESS is here to put that hickey back on your neck, fire up the Camaro and party down at the nearest parking lot like it's 1979. Is the band for real? Yes. Does it rock? Yes. Is it hard to get around the multiple-octave range that Justin Hawkins is ripping in every song? Well, a little, but the band is gaining speed here in the States after selling more than a million copies of 'Permission to Land' (Atlantic) in its native Britain. I'll take THE DARKNESS over those whiny emo bands any day. At least they're getting chicks." - Dave MF'ing Grohl

There are a number of CDs worth checking out coming Tuesday.
Here's my rundown (in no particular order):
The Vines - Winning Days
HIM - Greatest Hits
Guns n' Roses - Greatest Hits
Bring Them to Your Knees: A Tribute to Guns N' Roses
The Punisher - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Eagles of Death Metal - Peace, Love, and Death Metal
Pedro the Lion - Achilles' Heel
Snow Patrol - Final Straw
Sugarcult - Palm Trees & Power Lines
Gary Jules - Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets

Dawn of the Dead was really good.
That's my review.
Go see it.
That's my recommendation.
