ive been waiting SO long for this doc.

This doc is ALL about the bands i grew up listening to and in this 6-minute teaser, i couldnt have said any of it better. These bands changed my entire life and for the better. I had never been more motivated by anything more than this music and these bands and "One Nine Nine Four" is a doc that has been in the works for YEARS and it looks like it's going to be coming out soon. Do yourself a favor and take a look at this and you'll soon realize why islands is my favorite restaurant and why my clothes never match -- because i am still living in 1994, and LOVING it.

Here's blink playing "Pathetic" FLAWLESSLY at the first warped tour. This sums up every summer for me from 1997 - now. i love it.

Dazzle me

from MTV news:

"Michael Jackson's moonwalk is arguably the most iconic dance move to ever hit a concert stage, but it looks like the King of Pop is hoping to one-up his signature slide — with the help of "High School Musical" director Kenny Ortega.

In preparation for his upcoming 50-show stint at London's O2 Arena, Jackson has been holed up at a warehouse near the Burbank, California, airport rehearsing with Ortega and a team of renowned choreographers, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The highly anticipated tour has been threatened by a massive lawsuit, but that hasn't stopped the pop star from planning an over-the-top, true-to-MJ-form production.

"It's going to be the biggest, most technologically advanced arena show — and the most expensive — ever mounted," Randy Phillips, chief executive of concert promotion company AEG Live, told the newspaper.

As for the top-secret sequel to the moonwalk, Phillips said he was "sworn to secrecy" but that Jackson is working closely with Ortega to deliver a memorable move everyone will be talking about.

Ortega has worked with MJ in the past, collaborating with him on his Dangerous and HIStory tours. Ortega was quick to sign on to direct the shows, even working around his commitments to the "Footloose" remake.

"My answer without a beat was nothing could keep me away," Ortega said in a statement, hailing MJ as "the greatest entertainer of our generation."

The 50-show run kicks off at the O2 Arena on July 8."

oh please. Is it just me, or is Michael Jackson fun to reminice upon... he isnt a relevant pop star anymore. the best pop star of all time? YES - hands down. does anyone care about a secret new dancemove from him thats going to one-up the moonwalk? no, sir. no thank you.

You're welcome

you know how i know YOU'RE gay?

you're suing Coldplay over the world's most simple chord progression ever. Seriously, people? Think of "Dammit" by Blink 182. I mention this as the root song as Blink is my favorite band but that chord progression has been used in almost every green day song, Blink song, Sum 41 song... think of a Pop Punk band who HASN'T used that progression. I think SONGS are copyrightable and I think LYRICS are as well, but CHORD progressions might as well be intellectual property. I didn't pay much attention to the original case against Coldplay because i couldn't care less, but now Cat Stevens "needs a quick buck" as i read in a comment today, and i agree! a SLIGHT resemblance to a song that came out and sucked 36 years ago does not a case make.

Here's the thing... Coldplay don't NEED to copy anyone. I think they're a great band... and because of this shit, i gave "Viva la Vida..." another listen last night and it's a REALLY good record.. .which is weird because i hated it when it first came out. Anyway, stuff like this pisses me off. They are so successful, there is no reason they would sit around listening to some shitty tunes and say, "hey, you know what? I like this riff... let's steal it". if they did, it was probably "let's make it better". now, I have done that. Listen to LOTB's "Fuck Emo" and listen to the Ataris' "San Dimas High School Football Rules". we ripped them off PURPOSELY because it was satire... but it was also as common a chord progression as "Dammit" is by blink. show me an original chord progression and ill show you my penis.
