In the week we published the long awaited oral history of Maroon 5’s Call and Response, we also celebrated the release of Fall Out Boy’s Folie á Deux: Their secret/totally badass non-show in Washington Square Park; the video from the same fiasco; and a real show, at MSG, where Pete Wentz wore a “b” and an “x” over each eye for his new son, Bronx.
The worst lyrics of 2008–the Killers were totally robbed here.
Plus an interview with Boss Hog’s Cristina Martinez, Neil Young at Madison Square Garden, a plea for Hugh Jackman to put his Oscars tuxedo to good use, Scott Walker 30 Century Man, George W. Bush with an eyepatch, Cansei de Ser Sexy at Webster Hall, and toxic Jeremy Piven.
Pulp Fictions, our comics column, covered John Mejias’s Paping: The Teachers Edition and Gilbert Hernandez’s Sloth and Speak of the Devil; Everett True, another regular, took on Quickspace, Stanley Brink, and Alcohol-Fueled Snogging. With that in mind, we have a holiday party to go to.
