Robert Smith asked me to remix the Cure's new song "Freakshow" for an EP of remixes called Hypnagogic States. It comes out Oct. 13th and all the proceeds go to the International Red Cross.
Needless to say, I was honored to do this remix, not only because it's one of my favorite bands of all time, but because it's for a worthy cause.
And that cause is dancing. Oh yeah, and charity too.

You guys seem conflicted about whether that guy should have plummeted to his death, er....plummeted to his sprained ankle. I don't think he actually jumped, so I apologize to those who wanted this guy to pay for keeping me held up in traffic, but I appreciate the thought.

So if you haven't ever seen the amazing video for the band Unholy Grail, which is the black metal project of Tom from Jimmy Eat World, then you must view it. It also features such AFI road crew luminaries as Smith, RJ, and Reno. The part with the solo is golden.

Also, here's a very disturbing screenshot of Smith I took from it. It's currently haunting my dreams.

He looks like he could maybe be a comicbook hero and/or villian, Stabby Knife Teeth Man.
