Damn. I hate when my blog gets all dusty and cobweb-covered.

Yeah, the latest poll only adds up to 98%. Blogspot gets a C- in math.

Marc Webb, our friend who directed the Days of the Phoenix, Leaving Song II, Miss Murder, and Love Like Winter videos, has a new movie out:

It's his first feature length film. I went to see it, just because it's Marc, but I ended up enjoying it immensely. If you enjoy stuff, you should see it.
Marc also directed the mysterious, unreleased Stiff Kittens video.

On an unrelated note, what's the general feeling on internet memes? I have to admit I'm a fan of some of the more obscure ones:

But I have this sinking feeling that this is increasingly becoming the dominant expression of creativity

And our culture will eventually end up as one big failgull

The new AFI album comes out Sept. 29th.
I'm an impatient person so I wish that was tomorrow.
We just finished mastering today and it's an incredibly fantastic feeling to have our 8th album completed.
Can't wait for you to hear it.

On an unrelated note, when I originally signed up for Twitter, I tried to get but it was taken. Turns out someone got it for me so now I have it. I'll be doing my spotty twittering there as well, so go check it out. Hopefully when we start touring on this record I'll get my twittering act together so I can report on Smith setting his head on fire.

By the way, that's not the album art above, but it's very apt.


someone should make an emoticon that comes up when you type "crash<3".

p.s. in case you haven't seen it, here's Davey's announcement from today:

After two years of focused writing and recording we have finished Crash Love in it's entirety and and are thrilled to hear it come to life - personally, I've never been more proud of an AFI record. We are writing to announce that on Sept 29th it will be released to the world. We wanted you to know first and do hope that you enjoy it!

Malibu 4th of July. I'm the only person on the beach wearing pants.
