current song: My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy
Hey guys! I've got some more stuff to report to you. I was going to do it last night, but I had some other things to do. Sorry.
Pete reviewed Alice In Wonderland:
"On Thursday night in Los Angeles, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Blink-182's Mark Hoppus hosted an advance IMAX 3-D screening of Tim Burton's much-anticipated "Alice in Wonderland" (just one of the perks of collaborating on a song for the film's soundtrack, we assume). They ate popcorn and wore goofy 3-D glasses, posed with a Mad Hatter lookalike on the red carpet, and afterward, took the time to write up their reactions to the film for MTV News. What can we say? They're good guys.
Here's what Wentz had to say about "Alice in Wonderland," Tim Burton's much-anticipated latest opus, which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and many others, and hits theaters today. Check out Hoppus' review right here!
"So I got the chance to go see 'Alice in Wonderland' with Mark Hoppus tonight. Before the movie began, Mark and I did a bit of a Q&A — pretty much all of our jokes went over terribly and now I wished I just had sat in my seat.
"I have to preface this by saying I am a die-hard Tim Burton fan. There isn't a single movie he has made that I don't like. I went into this thinking that it was going to be a remake, but it wasn't (apparently I had not done my research due to my excessive reading of comments on AbsolutePunk.net). What Tim did was essentially move the 'Alice' story into his own world. I don't want to give much away, but for the actors to have to work with CGI characters it appeared almost seamless. And yes, girls, Johnny Depp is still flawless in every single way. I think this is a movie I'd have to see twice to fully grasp it.
"Mark Hoppus tried the old hole-in-the-popcorn-bag trick with me. It did not work. The movie, however, did."
(I, too, really loved this movie. The art of it was fantastic, the music--as always...I adore Danny Elfman's music style--and the acting. Johnny Depp continues to be my favorite actor ever. And no, I don't think he's cute...perhaps when he was younger, but he's my favorite actor because of his acting skills. Someone once said that you know an actor is amazing when you have little to no idea what they're really like as a person. I full-heartedly believe that. And to be honest, I can only guess at what Johnny Depp's like.)
Anyway, onward to more important matters.
You're in luck if you're in Austin, Texas, on the 19th...at 11 pm. Here's why:
"Patrick will be playing a brief set at SXSW previewing new material at the Dirty Dog Bar in Austin Texas on March 19th at 11PM."
(Either Mr. Stump has someone running his almost nonexistent twitter account now, or he's starting to refer to himself in the third person. xD )
Oh, and incase you're still concerned about the status of FOB's future:
"In the ustream chat of Pete shaving the beard off, he called Andy and they both said, "Fall Out Boy has not broken up, we're on a temporary break!" So, pretty much they said what they've been saying for the longest time, just on a live chat with 2000+ people at its peak instead of a news article that can be misconstrued.
Also, Pete said that Patrick was his Patronus. <3"
But seriously, you guys. The fact that people keep bothering them about it is what makes them not want to continue the band further. If you know of anyone, or if you yourself are one of these people who are like this, please just give them room to breathe and expand their own lives as they wish.
I'm pretty sure that that's the only news I've got for you guys today. Have fun! Keep living life the way you want....don't take anyone's shit.
Peace in hair grease. (Yeah, don't ask. XD)
Oh! The new Lifehouse CD kicks major butt. And don't forget to vote for Adam Garcia on American Idol (if you're in the US). He was almost sent home this last week...let's keep him far away from ever being in that spot from now on.
