PETA put together an animated video to open for Morrissey's nationwide tour. It's in the replies.
Every year, 8 billion chickens are orphaned, stuffed into severely crowded sheds, and trucked to slaughter. "Someday," a new video created by PETA and animated by Anna Saunders, is scheduled to be featured on rock icon Morrissey's nationwide tour. The video takes viewers on a harrowing journey as they witness—through the eyes of one terrified bird—the typical experience of chickens raised for meat. Will our young chick survive what 8 billion chickens each year cannot?

An AP.net reader wrote in after attending the LP and Ben (both formerly of Yellowcard) show tonight. He talked a little to the band and was told that the band would be called This Legend and they will be releasing a proper press-release soon that will also have a more detailed statement about LP's departure from Yellowcard. Apparently the new music sounds "like 2003 Yellowcard, but more pop punk." They also covered "Way Away" -- a clip of which can be heard in the replies.
Today something horrifying happened. Something tragic, something we can never undo. Today we lost a brother, a friend, a great vocalist, and even better person. Our vocalist Eric Gentry has gone to be with The Lord today. We wanted to let the #affkfamily know that we are in need of your prayers. This is crushing news. You won't find a better guy than Eric. We love him with all our hearts and will miss him dearly until we see him in heaven again. See you soon brother.
