Marvel announced on tonight's Colbert Report that Steve Rogers will turn Captain America over to Sam Wilson, making Wilson the first black Captain America.
That Colbert got to announce the change is altogether fitting; Cap's shield has been on display on the show since early 2007, ever since Marvel "bequeathed" the shield to the host after Steve Rogers' assumed death in the aftermath of the Civil War event series. Wilson will take up the mantle as a result of more recent events in Captain America continuity, however. In Captain America #21, Rogers fights his greatest foe yet in the Iron Nail, only to have the villain drain him of the super soldier serum keeping him young and...

Billy Corgan is not happy that Amazon leaked the Smashing Pumpkins' Adore Reissue track listing.
I spent some time this morning preparing what was meant to be the reveal of the ADORE BOX SET, for where the real juice lies in it is what sonic goodies made their way on it. Notably, I was prepared to share this information here on The Panopticon as far back as two months ago, but made the mistake of asking the record label if I should wait. And if you saw my comments earlier today, you already know that I’m very upset that an online retailer broke their agreement, posting up the tracks up before we could do it here first AS THEY’D ASKED. The irony being where do you think this kind of...

On the newest episode of Darren Rose Radio, Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba mentions that he is recording a record for a new side project of punk songs for kids. The band is called The Cereal Killers and will feature Mark Hoppus on bass. One of the songs Skiba mentions is called "I Want To Be A Spider" which is about a little boy who wishes he was a spider so he could scare the girls in his class.

Pennywise's Jim Lindberg talked with LA Weekly about his return to the band.
This album was very therapeutic for the band. I think the last couple of records we did together were overproduced. We lost the spirit that we have live and we got pasteurized somewhat. This is beach punk…mic the instruments, sing until your voice is raw, and put it out!

Somehow I got on a mailing list that lets me know when Travis Barker of Blink-182 buys a new car -- this is an odd mailing list to be on, but now I know he's purchased a new 2015 Cadillac Escalade. This information was a surprisingly popular post last time, so here we are again.

Gerard Way's interview with Kerrang talks about how My Chemical Romance was supposed to end after The Black Parade. You can read the first part of the interview if you "pay with a tweet" on Kerrang's website.
“I got sick physically and mentally because I didn’t listen to what my inner self said…” Which was? “Which was when Parade was over, that’s the end. I always said that to myself and I had been relatively vocal about saying that around the rest of the band. I plan things out pretty far in advance. I sat down with a piece of paper before Bullets came out and I wrote. I wrote down titles of records, what they were going to be like and what they were going to accomplish for the band.”...

Jack Antonoff sat down with GQ for an interview about not-his-side-project Bleachers.
It’s an annoying phrase. My whole life, I’ve been someone who likes to do a lot of different things, but I’ve specifically noticed with Bleachers, people don’t like the idea of, like, two bands, two projects. Like, they both have to be labeled, and, well, which one is the main one? Which one is the side project? It’s like that phrase “jack of all trades, master of none.” Which I think is a bullshit, annoying phrase. It’s just meant to scare us into doing one thing.

Indie-developer Marco Arment launched his brand new podcast app today: Overcast. I've been playing around with it all morning and it's pretty great so far. Simple, cool features, nice podcast discovery section, and very easy to use.

I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love.
