MCR to do Dylan cover?

Thats the buzz going around. Apparently it will be for the new DC movie "Watchmen"

Director Zach Snyder had this to say “[Frontman Way] is a super-great guy, and an awesome musician, and so we’re trying to work with them right now to put together possibly a song for the end titles,” he revealed, adding that he wants MCR to revisit a classic Bob Dylan song. “[They’ll perform] like a cover of “Desolation Row,” or something like that.”

The track will close out the film, and will be the only modern composition making up the movie’s soundtrack. “I’ve talked with him and I’ve heard a little bit of some stuff that’s he’s done,” Snyder said of Way’s early attempts to take on Bob Dylan. “And it’s pretty freaking cool.”

Now I really am excited to see this movie. what about you guys?

Project Runway

Season 5 started last week and I didn't want to admit it at first but todays episode convinced me that this seasons competitors are ummm ... not project runway material. I am liking the new people more and more but as far as their work: I feel like they are all trying too hard to introduce fresh ideas into the fashion world and on the way forgot to take a look at their complete garment and judge it as a whole. Some of the peices are flat out amateur. I would like for all of them to prove me wrong on next weeks episode because so far it has been a hot tranny mess (as my all time favorite Christian would say)
Moving on, I JUST found out that Project Runway will be moving to Lifetime and I don't know how I feel about that just yet. Heidi Klum says it will be shot in L.A. for about half of the season and it will have a "Hollywood flair". She also claims that the concept of the show will be the same but that it will have a "face-lift" But wait, What's Bravo going to do??
No worries a new a new show called Fashion House will be filling in the whole that Project Runway is leaving behind. It is based on a U.K series. Entertainment Weekly reports that the competitors "replicate the workings of the fashion business through a fashion house. Teams of designers will live together and work to create an entire line — rather than just individual pieces — that has the potential to be purchased by commercial buyers."

No set date has been posted for the premiere but I will post as soon as I find out!
I can't wait!

Haste the Day kick out guitarist

The christian metalcore act decided to let go one of their friend.
The band had this to say
"This is going to come as a shock to many of you. After much prayer and thought given to the matter, we asked Jason Barnes to step down from his involvement with Haste the Day. For a while Jason has been searching and searching for real meaning in his existence. After several months of reading literature and talking with friends, Jason had determined that he felt there was no God and certainly no Jesus. We as a band do not have problem with those that do not believe in Jesus, nor do we cast judgement on those that do not believe in Jesus. We just want to love on people like Jesus would and hopefully share a little bit about what he's done and doing in our lives. We would call ourselves a Christian band and for that reason, we felt we couldn't have someone in the band who didn't agree with the band's foundational drive.. Jason's new found disbelief in what the rest of us have committed our lives to began to cause disunity within the band and as a result, we prayed and talked about it and felt like God was saying it wasn't time for Haste the Day to come to an end. Thusly, We asked Jason to leave.

"We love Jason and it pains us all to not be on the road with one of our closest friends. It has also been a miserable experience for Jason to not be a part of something that he has been a part of for so long. We are all working on mending the tear in our relationship with Jason and are hoping to be able to continue to call him friend. We will not be replacing Jason with a new guitar player. Our friend, Dave Krysl, will be our full time touring guitar player. The 4 of us (Stephen, Devin, Brennan, Michael) all wrote our new album which will be called "Dreamer.""

In Russia goth and emo may be banned

Schools in Russia are trying to ban the black nail polish, black lipstick and head to toe black outfits. They insist that "emo" and "goth" attire encourage suicides.

Now, everyone from YSL, Marc Jacobs to Gaultier have incorporated some goth and emo into thier work. And right now, Russians are some of the catwalks' biggest and most enthusiastic patrons.

There was a protest held yesterday in Siberia... I don't know how much attention a protest can get in Siberia.

Hey Academy Is... fans!

William Beckett has a new blog called

Rise Against set release date and fall tour line up.

That's right, our new record, Appeal To Reason, has been completed and will be released October 7th, 2008. As you may know, we have once again teamed up with our friends Bill Stevenson & Jason Livermore, who produced Appeal To Reason at the Blasting Room, along with their capable team of engineers. Bill & Jason are the genius' behind The Sufferer & The Witness and also the responsible for the re-mix of our first record, The Unraveling on Fat Wreck, as well as numerous other songs, including our recent cover of "Little Boxes" for the show "Weeds.

If that wasn't exciting enough, we've teamed up with some old friends for a fall tour and are hoping to bring it to your town. RISE AGAINST, ALKALINE TRIO, THRICE, THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM. We considered giving the tour some fancy name, but then realized that nothing looks or sounds as good as those four bands together, in our own humble opinion.
