Looks like SLC Punk is getting a sequel ... called Punk's Dead. If this were a day later I would have sworn it was an April Fools joke.
Punkís Dead will follow the lives of the main characters 18 years after the events of the first film. Though it is not know who has signed on to be a part of the project, Matthew Lillard excitedly tweeted last November that he was reading the script.

"I've got a problem with the way you think."
Jason TateSome interesting stuff on the blog.
Dre OkorleyThat quote is from the new Paint It Black EP, Invisible, due out on April 1st. Each of the songs are floating around the web so listen and enjoy... because it's addictive. Also, The Front Bottoms and their new video.
Deborah RemusListen to Hollerado's White Paint and catch them live with Sum 41 and Billy Talent if you can.
Kelly DohertyThe Front Bottoms are too awesome for words, I've been rediscovering Modest Mouse's The Lonesome Crowded West and Boilermaker's Leucadia and Snowing are wonderful.

Entertainment Weekly has an interview and a exclusive stream of a song written by Jack from fun., for Super Why.
I wanted [the songs] to feel huge and larger than life and epic. I donít know if there really should be much of a difference between a childrenís show and a Bruce Springsteen concert. I think everyone should leave with the same feeling, which is hopefulness.
