- Jon's animals have fleas. :( poor kitties & puppy.

- Ryan was, it seemed, rolling along pretty well with recording, but he hasn't mentioned anything about it for a while.

- He also seems to have style-shifted to jeans/leather jacket ('80s Lennon?).

- Other picture notes: one of himself wearing a sabretooth skull as a hat; one of him with Kate and some fake blood; a couple of him and Dan Keyes, including two from an oscar party; one of him, Dan Keyes and Ryland in an el camino; and one of him at a carwash. In the last one he's discovered how to use the effects buttons on Instagram, because there's a black bar over his eyes and an ostrich, a knocked over pill bottle, an icecream cone, and a small child pasted into the image.

- Finally, he asked The Internets when spring break was for LA high schools and colleges. The Internets was baffled by this query. He has not elaborated further.

- JJAMZ's record is OFFICIALLY FINISHED! Mastered and everything! Still no word about a release date, though.

- Keltie was informed (by a third party) of more of Ryan's misdeeds and has declared "he's dead to me." Uh. I guess that means they're not sharing the dog anymore? IDK.

- Brendon, Spencer and Dallon seem to back in the studio; Ian may or may not be with them, I'm not sure.

Since May 29:

Noted that time wounds all heels, which may or may not have been a comment on Brendon's injury (and if it was, I'm not sure if that's snark, or a byproduct of his tendency to reverse things for humor value); thanked everyone who voted for him for "best of Twitter" and promised to keep up the nonsense on finding out he had made it to #7; had a dream about writing a song with Terrel Owens (he may have meant Terrell Owens, Bengals wide receiver and reality TV star) and Elton John; appreciated an episode of Tosh.0;

asked if anyone else noticed that Daniel and Henrik Sedin (winger and centre/captain for the Vancouver Canucks, respectively) looked like Peter Saarsgard in the Green Lantern [well, maybe, if you squint]; teased More Amor about making a late announcement about an appearance of one of their songs on Sports Center; shared a picture of Hobo; said "You had me at "heavy metal"" (Internet: WHAT?);

more hockey chatter, and also more idle chatter with Stuart Zender; commented that a picture of a friend of his in 1998 looked like himself in 2006 (again, maybe if you squint); noted he had been having a great dream about sleeping and then "@Vinnawinna happened" which I take to mean he was awakened by a furiously buzzing phone; and then noted that he was having a rough morning.

In possibly related news, Game Six of the Stanley Cup is tomorrow. Go Bruins go!

I've arbitrarily decided I'm not recapping his tweets unless something scandalous occurs, but I will note milestones / significant events, just to keep his record updated.

To that end: he's recently given his FB fanpage a good scrubbing. It's understandable, since there was a lot of noise getting in the way of his signal - and by noise I mean teenies haranguing him about going back to Panic - but nonetheless kind it's kind of startling to find it down to just two entries and the most recent one is from the end of May.

He's also updated his picture to a more recent performance shot.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Since 5/19:

Noted that Tom Conrad had entered the world decades ago and that coffee makes him (JWalk) go; shared a link to his interview with Heave Media (there wasn't anything new or all that interesting); shared a picture of his dog in a field and of the poster for his show with Empires; was quiet for a week; and then mentioned Cosmos by Carl Sagan. It's not clear if he's reading it or just happened to walk past it in his travels or what.

Also during this time: the JBTV interview / performance videos FINALLY surfaced: hxxp://


Ok y'all. Talk to me. Is anyone out there still interested in the ongoing adventures of Jon Walker, solo artist? I'm not so keen on what he has out right now, but I'm holding off on a decision until he releases some more new songs.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

since 5/19:

He extended his period of radio silence for almost a full two weeks before he sparked back up to talk to Samantha Ronson; announced his favorite Thai dish is lemonade, that he had lost the keys to a song, and shared a picture of Alex Greenwald working on something in a messy room; accidentally tweeted a text that was meant for parties unknown and then noted that that was just dumb; shared a picture of himself with Greenwald's blood on his face; RT'd something about recycling from the Old Man Search twitter; noted that the "shin" had just hit the fan right as TAI . . . made their announcement that Butcher and Chizzy were leaving (though it could be he just barked his shin on an actual fan);

commented he felt like he was trying to eat soup with his fingers; shared another picture of Greenwald playing guitar; had the epic back-and-forth with Brendon about the perils of playing basketball on carpeted surfaces that eventually degenerated into innuendo; agreed with Will Noon that Knives > Ramona (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World reference); posted a picture of a sleeping Stuart Zender (bassist for Jamiroquai, Mark Ronson & The Business); decamped to Vegas; got very excited about Chiclets; asked Stuart Zender if "The Chiclets" was going to be the name of "our" group.

(Ed note: I am taking that "our" to encompass Ryan, Greenwald and Stuart Zender. Holy pop cultural mash-ups, Batman, is all I can say.)
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Since 4/10:

Asked who has a pool; quoted a line about cats from The Office; shared a picture of his cats; started and kept up a steady support for Empires' bid to get on the cover of Rolling Stone; did his first solo show and an interview on, which STILL hasn't surfaced on the internet, though fan reports were made; encouraged us (well, those of us aged 18-35) to sign a petition to make our voices heard about legalizing pot and gay marriage; was pleased with his JBTV show;

noted that he loved recording during storms, though he was afraid he would miss a tornado siren if he wore his headphones; posted a picture of Marley with a ball; annonced he was recording with Empires; shared a picture of himself playing drums; shared an MLK JR quote in response to the death of Osama Bin Laden; referenced No Surprises by Radiohead;

drove through a suburb of Chicago and commented on the local election signs; shared a picture of all of his animals looking out a window; promoted his upcoming show with Empires in Chicago; and finally, asked us to vote for his friends The Handsome Bandit to be on a movie soundtrack.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Since 4/10:

Agreed with Will Noon that he missed The Young Veins - this is the first comment he's made since Decmeber on the subject - and then made plans to go to Coachella with Alex Greenwald and Stuart Zender (bassist for Jamiroquai (!) , also playing for Mark Ronson); first "someone" lost his car keys, then he apparently misplaced Alex and Stuart individually an collectively while at Coachella, made a joke about being in a casino, and went off in search of food; was excited about the LA Kings winning games, shared a picture of himself at a game with a commemorative towel;

was (kind of hilariously) irritated by people telling 4/20 jokes; made a puzzling comment about "ghost trash" that Google suggests might related to an suite of icons; noted that he loved movies; appreciated Alex Greenwald's creepy Easter artwork; modified some common sayings in ways that suggest he might have been having a rough day ("if life hands you lemons, eat them" and "it really is a frog eat frog world"); was grumpy about the Kings losing; RT'd Alex Greenwald saying he looked like Encino Man (movie in which Brendan Fraser was a caveman transported to modern times and had a scraggly beard and disasterous hair the whole time, c. 1992 or so);

asked why he was still wearing a hair shirt, normally a sign of penitence; noted the cops had been calling the police all night; gloated at a friend of his when his substitute hockey team had a triumphant run of several wins; shared the video with the "talking" dog (YouTube); was mildly snarky with Greta about her mother's conservative (and very good!) advice, then softened it by saying he loved the '50s; allowed he couldn't think of anything worse to do than watching Lady GaGa on tv;

mangled the Infinite Monkey Theorem; quoted and agreed with someone as saying "if your brain's in the way you can't ride bulls"; and finally shared another video, this time of a small child rapping about God.

As of this writing he's been quiet for about a week.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)
A more complete accounting:

Since 3/12:

Noted that it's impossible to go through a drive-in or eat french fries on a motorcycle; tweeted his area code (311), probably by accident; wished that good shows like Dinosaurs were still on the air; RT'd a hockey player doing a followers-for-donations-to-Japan exchange; also encouraged us to follow one of the dudes in More Amore; was unimpressed with the Situation's attempt at roasting Donald Trump; entertained himself (and us) with some fancy Noam Chomsky-inspired wordplay, trolling us a little bit, I suspect, for all of the people who tell him he never makes any sense;

was sad to be going to Paris alone but noted he'd be close to the Supermoon (The Internet: WHAT? PARIS? WHAT?); was sarcastic about standing in line; noted that Tosh.o doesn't give a fuck and he (Ryan) hasn't been giving a fuck since '92 or '93; had a day off in Paris followed by a high-speed train to Belgium to do some work (Internet: BELGIUM? Work? Belgium? WORK? WHAT.); posted a studio picture from Day 2 of Didier Chapedelaine's solo record; noted he could almost see his face in Will Noon's shiny shoes; grumbled a little bit about speaking Mumble (perhaps having trouble with heavy Parisian drawls?); spouted a bunch of stuff about Christmas trees and unicorns and leprechauns that was probably related to/inspired by the video for the song Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown?" from On Her Majesty's Secret Service that he posted later;

either had or overheard a conversation about The Cowsills (family group on which the Partridge family was based); announced he wanted to wake up every morning to Are You Ready For This? from Space Jam and fall asleep to We Have All the Time In the World by Louie Armstrong; noted that Swedish was insane; posted a picture of Nic Johns of Les Wampas sleeping and managed to misspell "asleep"; posted a truly terrifying video about a yoga farmer (srsly WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT, free nightmares is RIGHT); mentioned "tragic magic", which could be either a now-defunct source of house music, two different books (one of them is a scrapbooking mystery!) or an instrumental song by Steve Winwood, and really, your guess is as good as mine, here;

noted that 12 songs in was a perfectly good time to get their surf rock on; posted the Boom Boom Boom Way Ho! girl video (YouTube); encouraged everyone to vote for Panic in MTV March Madness, with some help from Shakesperian insults; told Dan Snowfreak that Belgium was rainy and he was tired but not cranky; noted that the studio they were in was the same one where Technotronic made Body to Body, with such hits as Move That Body and Move This; had a discussion about house music with Will Noon;

asked if Fidel Castro had died or if that was an April Fool's Joke (Castro is not dead, as far as I know); made a terrible pun about jumping off bridges in Paris making you in Seine; noted that Belgium loves Batman; told another terribly punny joke about a small fortuneteller escaping from prison; compared Didier Chapedelaine to Clint Eastwood and John Wayne; asked how long one could survive on ketchup sandwiches "for a friend"; RT'd more LA Kings stuff, this one for a blood drive; took the train back to Paris with people who looked like spies, and got his spy music on; was excited about the Kings clinching a playoffs berth, and since then has been silent.

sailorstkwrning: (Default)
I'm putting him by himself now, since he's having a solo career.

Since 3/12:

Made some stew, apparently discovering the joys of a potato peeler for the first time (?!); reminded us carrot and potato skin were good for us, if washed well; noted that neither green beer nor corned beef and cabbage had anything to do with Ireland but that the latter was tasty; reminded us about the Supermoon; was quiet for a good two weeks, then surfaced in New York, and after that almost all of his comments have been one word, accompanied by a picture. To date he has shared: himself, in New York; a puppy (not Marley), presumably also in New York; Than Liu, on what might be the Brooklyn Promenade; a snapshot of a party at what might be a wine bar; a picture of the Beatles; two studio-like shots, one of which was a screen shot from a video that was just him playing the guitar; a street scene that might be in Chicago; an Elmo birthday cake for a small child that I'm assuming is his nephew; and an enormous sub.

Outside of the monosyllabic commentary, there were also a shots of Marley plus all of the garbage Jon picked up in his neighborhood in 45 minutes; an announcement of a show in Chicago in May (he's opening for Empires); an announcement of a live taping on something called JBTV in Chicago (local access? internet TV?); he asked us if we thought John Boehner might actually be evil, then deleted it and (clumsily) tried to act like he'd been talking about John Stamos being handsome (Jon Walker, please don't insult our intelligence that way again) and also noted that "the guy sure is tan" though I don't know which guy he meant; and he quoted lyrics from a Steve Earle song, "Lonely are the Free." Finally he thanked Bob Morris for appreciating "Alone" and suggested they play together some time.

Also he's changed his profile picture back to a shot of his face, though he's creepily over-smiling in this one.

Since 2/24

Ryan: Has been remarkably quiet, for him. He shared a picture of himself and Tom Oakes from More Amor in vintage LA Kings hockey jerseys, on their way to Legends night; was grumpy about skunks (or "skunks") using up all of his hot water and ketchup; shared a picture of himself pretending to hug an inflatable crawfish (apparently it is outside of Origami Vinyl); quoted part of a conversation in which someone described themselves as a "Twihard Belieber" (auuuuuuuuugh); retweeted Daniel Tosh talking about his (Tosh's) new show, and announced it was a good thing he (Ryan) didn't own a guillotine.

sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Since 2/24:

Brendon: Had dinner at a fancy cafe in advance of shooting another video (movie?) with Shane Drake; was excited about lobster ravioli; was pleasantly sore post-show (not going to lie, I made an undignified noise when I saw the video of him stage-diving); went to Vegas and quoted a random dude the subject of gambling ("luck is the residue of design"); promoted The Overture; was worn out from too much flying; various radio-show related tweets;

got new specially labeled in-ears ("this is your left ear" " this is your right ear" - Brendon, do you need your mittens on a string as well??); was irritated by someone standing too close to him at the urinal in an otherwise empty bathroom (seriously the arrangements in men's rooms sound so odd - who wants to pee in public? like, ever??); gently teased a fan who had equally gently scolded him for TMI regarding the urinal tweet; and noted that his thoughts were with Japan but rather than praying he was donating to the Red Cross.

Retweets: their Roxy support band burbling about the show; band twitter sharing JMonts review of the record; fun. in the studio (picture); his friend's Tumblr post with New Order's Bizarre Love Triangle; one of the radio stations sharing pictures from the show.

Damn this 140 character bull$!**"

Retweets: band twitter sharing JMonts review of the record and a limited poster and a radio station sharing pictures.

Other Notes: March Madness, OH GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE AWKWARD ISN'T IT? Though maybe not, since TYV doesn't seem to be in it as of right now. Though I can't wait to see how JMont glosses over THAT when he's setting up the brackets.,
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Brendon: Saw and appreciated Black Swan; wore himself out eating Indian food in London; annoyed Londoners by parroting their accent back at them (badly, according to him); various video promotional tweets; was excited to play the show at Bush Hall; had a good show in Germany; wished his ladyfriend a Happy Valentine's Day/anniversary (SRSLY BRENDON URIE WHAT OH MY GOD.

Spencer: Saw Black Swan, then went in search of jalfrezi (curry); shared pictures of the view from his window in London and also his new toy, a Lomo Sprocketrocket (I thought it was "pocketrocket", until, uh, now, which made me giggle, because I'm LOL twelve); told us all to look up; was excited to play the show in Germany; was also excited to be home to eat a lot of Mexican food and, er, possibly visit with a ladyfriend?; asked the internet where in LA he can get his Lomo film developed, approved merch, etc; appreciated an iced grade triple soy latte; one promo tweet for a shirt; was awakened by his dog (Boba Fett) having an intense dream, he theorized it was about jackrabbits; then finally shared a picture of Boba with a comment about having bought extra lenses and film for his Hipstamatic app. Spencer Smith: not-so-secret camera geek?
sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Ryan: Watched the Super Bowl, while engaging in whatever shenanigans "Phoenix afterparty" are code for, though he sounded irritated about it, so it may not be shenanigans he enjoyed; wrote a "victory song" for the Packers with Michael Runion and Alex Greenwald, aka RAM; RT'd JMont declaring the song "montage ready"; threw the making of the video for the song open to his followers; had a brief conversation with Jon Walker about the song, in which he said if it made Jon run faster it had served it's purpose; RT'd More Amore's mixtape annoucement, indicated they're old (a geriatric 25) and also old friends; did the dishes in shitkickers (cowboy boots with heels and pointy toes); wished a friend a happy birthday; Super Bowl Hero went on iTunes; and in his latest tweet (2/17), told someone "call him now, a points a point!"

sailorstkwrning: (Default)

Since Jan. 16:

Ryan Was excited to attend a Lakers' game in Adam Levine's place; was shopping in the Vegas/West Coast equivalent of KMart (Mervyn's) on a Friday night; may have had a charleyhorse (muscle spasm); the phrase "Space Ham" appeared, which could be a) a play on Space Jam or b) a reference to an episode of Timon and Pumbaa (Disney cartoon) which was actually entitled Space Ham, or, and this is a stretch, c) be about Ham the Chimp astronaut from 1951; noted that nothing rhymes with vampire except maybe hampire, then later rejected all of Samantha Ronson's suggestions, including hampshire, liar and fire; wished Dan Keyes a happy birthday and shared a hilarious picture of Dan Keyes pouting while wearing bunny ears; "crack into the world, get your birth on!" - I got nothing. Unless it was someone else's birthday?;

quoted someone saying "Eat? I'll eat when I'm dead. Wait that's not how that goes" which I'm taking as a variation on "I'll sleep when I'm dead" and a reference to songs of the same title by either The Cure, Warren Zevon or Bon Jovi; participated in the awful cereal Twitter meme with "rosted mini meats. Honey bunches of toads? (with almonds)"; expressed his appreciation for The Cheesecake Factory and noted that they had tweeted him once; commiserated with Greta regarding their mutual despair at the survival of pop-punk (brb LOLING FOREVER); appreciated a piece of fan-made TYV merch; appreciated the score to You Only Live Twice, by John Barry, and finally, made the following comment on the appearance of nudes/wank tape stills purporting to be of him: "I couldn't afford to wear suits before I had tattoos. come on, you guys are better than that".

Jon Was silent for a while, then made a meta-tweet about thinking about tweeting and not getting around to it (cue me rolling my eyes); announced he was getting of this "big island"; quoted the "players only love you when they're playing" line from Dreams by Fleetwood Mac (there's a hip-hop song by Crazy Town with that title, but I'm assuming Fleetwood Mac until proven otherwise); went quiet again for a while, then sparked up to RT a fan comment about cats and beards reminding her of him, and also to share pictures from a sunny tropical locations of a sunset on the beach, a sunset on the water, and a stretch of coast that he has declared his "spot."

Since he sparked back up, he's made various promotional tweets - radio stations and the pre-order - and also thanked people for coming out to shows in New York and Philadelpia; noted he was feeling pretty good, post-Jaeger shots in Virginia; shared a picture of Brendon looking unimpressed in the snow in what appeared to be a graveyard with above-ground masoleums; and finally quoted someone as saying the mac and cheese they were eating should be rated NC-17.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)
Since Dec. 1, 2010:

Brendon: Wished Shane a happy birthday (Dec. 1); had a sleepless layover in Zurich and appreciated Berlin (In German, even!); quoted A Christmas Story; mentioned he needed a haircut, suggested he might go for something in the style of Richard Marx in the '80s, supplied a link to Right Here Waiting (You Tube) as an illustration (causing me to snicker and sigh at the same time, because that song, oh man, pretty sure I wore that tape out); watched Rachel Maddow and was distressed that the Ugandan "kill the gays" politician was for real; RT'd Janelle Monae's tweet about the guy who was cured of HIV via stem cell research; appreciated his ladyfriend's peanut butter cookies; inflicted that terrible Christmas Shoes (by: Newsong) on us via YouTube; was supportive of Jacob Givens (writer) who announced his (Jacob's) switch to athiesm via a link to an article by Ricky Gervais on the subject (athiesm, not Jacob's own switch);

Spencer: Continues to have nothing to share with the internet at this time. Though it's likely he's sharing the band twitter duties with Zack.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)
Changed my mind, Ryan Rossy gets his own post.

So, he: shared an actually terrifying video that Vicky-T inflicted upon him; had some conversations with Brendon; also did some Halloween stuff (haunted Hayride in Griffith Park, with Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, of all people); either expressed his cluelessness about pussywillows or heard someone else doing so; washed his hair with bubblebath; was Atreyu (Neverending Story) for Halloween (Z was The Childlike Empress!); later informed the internet that his plans for the day were "I'm gonna feed you, rip off those jeans, and take you to the hospital" (?!); was possibly sarcastic being interested in the fortunes of the (I'm assuming, since he didn't specify)) San Francisco Giants (baseball); asked Greenwald if he (Greenwald) thought it was weird that he (Greenwald) sang like the guy from Spin Doctors (no he does not, Ryan); appreciated Michael Ian Black's tweets about George Lopez; hung out with the Bad Rabbits;

It was around the time the news of her possible affair with Bret Michaels was in the headlines);

waffled about ordering pizza the day before Thanksgiving; was pleased the Deluxe Package postcards were getting to people; had a great many FEELINGS about soup, sandwiches and fast food (he doesn't like Subway, or McDonalds); invited a friend to join himself and Greenwald in having soup & sandwiches and watching TV in bed (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP, Y'ALL); said something about not doing shots and compared a girl to Brendon Fraser in Encino Man; narrowly avoided spoiling his dinner with pretzels; and was kind of grumpy about other people not appreciating Change.

Also happening during this period: Keltie's book came out.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)
Brendon: Had a couple of conversations with Ryan Ross (!) about freaky weekends and funkadelic grooves; worked on some "backgrounds" with Butch Walker; went out for Halloween (in Vegas) as "Guitar Hero" (you are the most ridiculous, Brendon Urie, and I love your stupid face) (side note: the group costume theme seemed to be "heroes"; Shane went as Kick-Ass, Sarah as Storm, and Regan as Lady Gaga, which, that could be an interesting cultural conversation about what qualifies as a "hero"); got the chorus of "Only Girl (In the World)" (Rihanna) stuck in his head (and asked if that was "gay"); asked the Internet for their favorite Sinatra song and recommended The Divine Comedy (band, not Dante);

appreciated some eggs under the guise of a tweet for Jesus (?!); was possibly disappointed by a line about guns in Avatar; recommended What's Up, Tiger Lily (Woody Allen movie); had a 48-hour flu and was stir-crazy; promised us new music soon; shared a picture of his dog taking a sun-bath; asked the internet what the new record should be called; shared a link to a video complilation of 5 ridiculous Sarah Palin moments from her new reality show, as compiled by Gawker; RT'd the link for Shane and Dallon's commercial several times; ate a lot of food for Thanksgiving; noted the passing of Leslie Nielsen; was apologetic about the Argentina show being postponed and vowed to fix it; and RT'd Zack talking about a marijuana documentary.

Spencer: Has no thoughts to share with the internet at this time.
sailorstkwrning: (Default)
Panic! at the Disco

Spencer remains a sexy sphinx; Brendon noted his 100,000+ followers (a huge jump from where he was earlier this summer!); may possibly have had to look up "incorrigible" (he didn't quite use it properly in context); seemed to be pleased it was raining; and his best girl beat him at Wii bowling, which he attributed to her wearing bowling shoes while playing. (They are so ridiculous and adorable. ♥Brendon & Sarah♥)

The Like

Went out on their West Coast mini-tour - in addition to various show announcements, there was some wordplay with fans and also Hunter Burgan of AFI (!), a note about listening to the Beach Boys, a comment about being able to fry an egg in the van, and finally a tweet about Annie learning French and Z sleeping while the others drove/DJ'd that later got deleted. They also shared a picture of some fans; asked for shopping advice in Portland; shared three videos from their ICA (London) performance; wished both John Lennon and Alex Greenwald a happy birthday; shared a picture from a Kate Spade party they apparently went to/played at; departed on their mini-European tour; shared a blog post full of pictures from the Paris show; rode in a water taxi in Rotterdam & have video to prove it (Z's expression at the end is really funny); hung out with an elephant in Hamburg; someone's (Z's?) inner 12 yr old was ecstatic to be at at Nickleodeon with slime and later playing a show with Jamiroquai; shared a Kate Spade video; and finally noted the passing of Ari Up (The Slits) with sadness.

NB: There was also tweet with a link to blog post I think from Brussels, that was in French, which they seem to have since deleted. When I read it, the review was positive towards them but - and this is based on a somewhat fractured Google translation - did seem to have a kind of strange, gross undertone of "if you don't like them you must be gay" which may or may not be why they deleted it.

Brendon: Would love to believe in life on Mars, and so maybe he will; also he is looking forward to the Rally to Restore Sanity.

Spencer: Has no thoughts that he wishes to share with the Internets at this time.

The Young Veins:

Jon goes first this week, since he has the most exciting news! I (and the rest of the Internet) am taking that "engaged!" to mean "to be married." Woooo! Congratulations, Mr. Walker. He also noted the 5 year anniversary of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, though, strangely, not the release of the video for Take a Vacation. Further Twitter-related data points: both MTV Buzzworthy and OneHaven tweeted video-related news solely to Ryan and the band twitter; I have a suspicion that the band twitter is run by Nick Murray.

Ryan on the other hand, made no mention of Fever at all, but did RT the band twitter and MTV's tweets about the video and (as it turned out) his solo appearance on Subterranean. Also noted that having an immortal enemy was way worse than having a mortal enemy; complained about the long lasting effects of Tylenol PM; recommended Who is Harry Nilsson? (movie); noted that the B-52s sang the theme song for Rocko's Modern Life (Nickelodean cartoon, 1993-1996); asked the internet what constituted a "floppy appearance", but didn't specify what it was that was supposed to appear floppy; RT'd a comment from Ponytail Groovin' about them both being from the same part of the wrong side of the tracks (so maybe PG isn't Greenwald?); shared that his iPhone corrects "bonehead" to "vinegars" and was possibly puzzled that it was vinegars, plural;

shared a picture of the beach followed by a RT of CNN's story about LA's record high temperature; was puzzled by the popularity of the martini glass on the grounds that it looks like a plate (what martini glasses have you been drinking out of, Ryan??); bit a baby on the head (the following exchange with a friend suggests baby = puppy, in this case, which may or may not be related to the "floppy appearance" query); wished people only had 140 characters in real life; wasn't sure if he'd rather go to a The Like show or watch a new episode of Tosh.0 (he later showed up in the picture TL shared from the casino); had some beef jerky in Baker; and narrowly missed rescuing Shane Valdes from waiting by the side of the road for a towtruck. The tow truck discussion included a reference to Adventures in Babysitting by Shane and the hook-hand killer urban legend by Ryan.

Andy: Went out Trick or Treating (already?) and asked the internet what curfew was supposed to be while noting that he knew he had to be home by the time the street lights were on.

Nick: Wished another fan a happy birthday; offered to trade a present to whoever could get him into Knott's Scary Farm for free; was possibly mildly annoyed that he's been into alien disclosures lately; saw Pavement and Sonic Youth and remembered why he grew out of Pavement at 17 but felt Sonic Youth's set was too short; rt'd his other band's (Black Apples) appearance in a Pepsi commercial though he had to work the morning it was shot; and finally wanted to beat the heat by sitting in a nice cold air conditioned theater and watching horror movies.

The Like: Took in a Daria (cartoon, MTV, 1997-2002) marathon on the Logo network; Z got her stitches out at her pediatrician's office; various West Coast tour related announcements; shared a link to their interview with Nemone at BBC6; also rt'd the CNN headline about the heatwave; RT'd comic Jordan Rubin's comment about Mad Men, 1980s-style; drove through the Mojave listening to Bowie; Annie got 21 at blackjack her first time in Vegas, ; Wishing He Was Dead appeared in the 9/30 episode of Gray's Anatomy; and finally RT'd two pieces of fan art which were renditions of themselves as The Beatles.
