Gerard Way on the Cover of NME

I love the new NME cover featuring My Chemical Romance‘s Gerard Way w/ his flaming red hair. Notice, it’s the same color palate as this website? How could I not fall in love with it?

If you haven’t seen the “Na Na Na” music video, you need to. It’s geniusly campy and cartoony. Love My Chem.

Yes, I will be buying their new album “Danger Days” on 11/22/10 and singing and dancing along to it in front of my bedroom mirror for the next 3 months.

Cab TV: I Hate Talk Stoop

Out of all the annoying programs and commercials that play in the back of NYC cabs, probably the worst offender is that show, “Talk Stoop.”

The woman who does the interviews is pretty much the worst interviewer ever. She always asks the most assinine questions and really, I’m not sure why she gets to host the program. (She must have something big on an NBC honcho or something.)

This past weekend I caught Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz on the show. And by caught I mean “watched on mute.” I don’t know why Mr. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is doing cab tv, but I found it endlessly funny.

Emo Crush: Gerard Way Talking About Umbrella Academy

I know many of you just DO NOT CARE about anything vaguely emo, but since I’ve kind of thrown So More Scene by the wayside, this needs to go on here.

I love Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance. He’s so dishy. Here he is at the Watchmen premiere (My Chem does a cover version of “Desolation Road”…yes, it’s awful, but I love it anyway), talking about his own comic project, the Umbrella Academy:

Denny’s All Nighter Appeals To Your Hungry Inner Emo

Last night I went to an event celebrating the launch of what could possibly be the greatest marketing idea of all time: Denny’s + late night menu + emos. Yes, that’s right–make way for the greatest invention of our time, the Denny’s All Nighter Menu.

According to the official press release:

To further expand its late-night menu, Denny’s has asked groups including Taking Back Sunday, Plain White T’s, Eagles of Death Metal and The All-American Rejects to help the chain dream up new dishes for rollout later this summer.

Yup, you read right: For the first time ever, Denny’s has specifically designed food BY DRUNKS, FOR DRUNKS!

At the event I was able to sample the rock-inspired items such as the “Plain White Milkshake” (a vanilla-flavored milkshake designed by the members of the Plain White T’s), as well as the “Hearts on a Plate” (heart-shaped pancakes covered in strawberry syrup and white chocolate chips, developed by Eagles of Death Metal‘s Jesse Hughes–who was on hand at the event), alongside the new late-night menu items like “Potachos,” which are described as being “Freshly fried and seasoned kettle chips topped with crumbled sausage, bacon, bell pepper and onion mix, cheese sauce and shredded Cheddar cheese.”

Other “rockstar” items will include the “All-American SOS” (designed by the All-American Rejects) and the “Taking Back Bacon Burger Fries” (fries with all the fixings of a cheeseburger dumped on top of it, conceived by Taking Back Sunday). Sure, your cardiologist is hyperventilating at the sight of this menu, but your 3am beer-filled belly is jumping up and down.

The press release also reveals that the shift to late-night will not only manifest itself in the menu, but the actual atmosphere in Denny’s:

New Vibe
Additionally, Denny’s servers will swap their traditional uniforms for jeans and black “Get Your Crave On” t-shirts. Restaurants will play alternative rock music from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Oh hellz yes, you know you love it. Unfortunately, although the event took place in NYC, there are currently no plans to open up a Denny’s in the city. You’ll have to get your greasy spoon dipped whilst on the road, my friends.

Is Coldplay Biting My Chemical Romance’s Style?

As you might already know, I love Coldplay and have been a long-time fan, but I’m not above pointing out how ridiculous they are–and by “they” I mean “Chris.” I am simultaneously interested and embarrassed by everything they do.

As I’ve already established, Coldplay have a long track record of creating the ugliest album covers known to man, and their newest for Viva la Vida is no different.

But one day last week as I was staring at the album cover, screaming “WHY? WHY? WHY?,” I realized that the image reminded me of another of my embarrassingly beloved band’s work…My Chemical Romance.

Check it out:

viva la vida

But the comparisons do not stop there…

Fatrick from Fall Out Boy IS A MURDERER


Woah, I was watching the 2 hour season premiere of one of my most favorite shows ever (aka- Law and Order) tonight. I made it thorugh the first episode, but then realized at 10:30 I was also missing a new episode of Project Runway. As I flipped back and forth, I did manage to spot one PATRICK STUMP of FALL OUT BOY as one of the murderous kidnappers in the second episode. I could spot that combover a mile away–even while it’s hiding behind a defendant’s table.

Oh, and need I mention that JEREMY SISTO — aka the dude who “lost his Cranberries CD in the quad” in Clueless — is now one of the detectives on the show. OHSHNAP!

I <3 L&O.
