Do you think Jack's Mannequin's The Glass Passenger is a sophomore slump or comeback of the year? We've pitted two staff members against each other to debate its merits on whether it will live on as a worthy successor or fall into the dreaded sophomore slump category. Read the justification for each in the replies and feel free to post your own thoughts.

Photos have leaked (in the replies) of a new wiki-friendly Jack's Mannequin website currently in development and scheduled to launch any day now. We're told the only way to find out when it's live, besides sitting at your computer all day, is to text JM to 50505 from your mobile phone. They'll be alerting fans the second it's live nearly 24 hours before the general public.

Andrew McMahon has posted a new blog, which can be read below.
Blog PostAs I made my way down the hill this morning for my regular cup of tea, I couldn't help but be curious. You see, while the New Year began days ago, it is today, the 5th of January that I have chosen as my official start. The scheduled event was a blur of drink and smoke, a celebration of a year gone, not one just beginning. So I indulged it; let it drag on in a sort of hazy last stand, to find myself here on a Monday apropos, the just-barely-cold of Los Angeles stirring my penchant for all things new. Curiosity, I should think is a good thing, both in a new year and on a Monday morning. It is from this place where I...

Andrew McMahon (Jack's Mannequin / Something Corporate) has issued us the following statement regarding the upcoming vote:
Andrew McMahon and the voteTo all considering to vote in this upcoming election: DO! We are in the midst of one of the most important elections in history right now. I am the first to admit that I believe all politicians are flawed and the system is broken, but the only way to affect change is to take a stand and vote. We owe it to ourselves to watch these debates and cut through the massive amount of bullshit and try and find the candidate that speaks most clearly to our own core values. We can argue that neither of these men or their tickets represent us as a...
