I was stuck in traffic yesterday because the police had city streets and the highway blocked off. When I got up there I saw it was because this guy was threatening to jump off the overpass. Kind of a weak threat. Probably result in a twisted ankle, tops.

Some of you may have heard about Jerry Finn, producer of the last 2 AFI albums as well as Morrissey, Alkaline Trio, Green Day, etc. He had a massive brain hemmorhage a couple weeks ago and is currently still in intensive care. He hasn't regained consciousness yet but send some love out to him and let's hope for a speedy recovery.
He was having lunch with Nick 13 when it happened and Nick got him to the hospital and stayed with him, so a round of applause for Nick as well.

I just had Cookie Crisp with chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chips, Oreos, and soy milk. Instant diabetes. You can get it at this cereal bar called Jujus in Westwood in LA. Try it.

Smith was very appreciative of the birthday gift that some of you pitched in for. A $200 credit at a tattoo shop. I'm sure he'll get something amazing along the lines of:

After he get it he's going to send me a pic and I'll post it.
It'll probably be Steve Buscemi and Carrot Top rollerblading or a wizard with a crystal ball and in the crystal ball is a castle and in the window of the castle is a unicorn with a crystal ball with a wizard in it.
Sorry to blow your mind unexpectedly like that.

Any Batman fans? I went to an advance screening of the new Dark Knight movie last night.
It was suitably entertaining in a blockbustery sort of way. Heath Ledger was amazing, as I'm sure you expected him to be. Long as hell though, 2 1/2 hours.
I sat in the 3rd row of an IMAX screen so I was staring straight up at Christian Bale's immense and uncomfortably detailed face. Sort of a weird scene, tons of people from bands and then Posh Spice and David Beckham (?).
In other news, we'll have some big AFI announcements soon regarding the new album.
We've been quiet lately, but working intently and intensely, as I'm sure you noticed from the video of Davey and I writing. It takes a long time to write an album when you're writing it in slow motion and in black and white.
