Lil Wayne is currently hospitalized.
Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

Update: Mack Maine just tweeted, "Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon." However, TMZ also just updated with, "Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles -- and we're told all major decisions about Wayne's health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives."

Update #2 (06:39 PM): Lil Wayne's twitter account just tweeted, "I'm good everybody. Thx for the...

Read my review of the Pawtucket, RI stop of The Wonder Years' current tour with Fireworks, Hostage Calm and Misser on March 9th here.
The Wonder Years put forth all of their energy at every show, but there's something special about seeing them in a small club. Both the band and the fans relished the intimate setting. Adding a strong line-up of genuine musicians - really, any band on the show could have headlined to a solid turnout - was merely the icing on the cake. Don't miss this tour if it's coming anywhere near you, because The Wonder Years probably won't be playing venues this small for a while.

Gerard Way will be releasing the first issue of The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys on June 12th.
Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one—the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI or else join the mindless ranks of Bat City!

A site called RetiredArtists has popped up. Boasting musicians who have been in bands that were "signed and toured extensively, on labels ranging from Victory Records to Bridge 9 Records," the service offers discreet songwriting for the musically challenged.
What do we do? We make it easy for that guy who wants to sing in a metal, hardcore, punk or rock band (but doesn’t have the music-writing friend to help him) write songs. We also make it easy for someone struggling with writing their own music in a band get consistent by writing songs that they can learn, as theirs, and branch off from there.
