But Wait, There's More: JAMC, National, YLT, Beady Eye, Suede, Godspeed, Sebadoh, Smiths, Radiohead, and TONS more

So I've been pretty much absent for the last couple of months as the holidays and work has kept me pretty busy.  But my google reader kept piling up and I've finally managed to plow through everything and bring you the best stuff.  Some of this is old stuff so if you're a blog addict then this will all be pretty boring and you'll probably say, "*sigh*, old news!"  For everyone else:  This is what's going on!


John Hughes Missing Screenplay Based on The Cure's "Lovecats"

John Hughes, the director for many iconic 80's movies like "Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", started working on a script based on The Cure song, "Lovecats".  Slicing Up Eyeballs digged through a Vanity Fair piece about Hughes and found that the author, David Kamp, posted outtakes of the interviews he did with Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall and Matthew Broderick. 

Molly Ringwald:  “When ‘The Breakfast Club’ ended, he started writing a script called ‘Lovecats,’ because I played him that song by the Cure, ‘The Lovecats.’ I was obsessed by the Cure — still am. I think Robert Smith is an underrated songwriter. Anyway, I played this song for John, and he started writing a script, and he gave me a mix tape of what the soundtrack was gonna be. Which was pretty much Dave Brubeck, with the last song by Bob Dylan.”
