Fall Out Boy Should Be Sent To Bed Without Their Supper

wentzzzz.jpgNot content with luring my co-worker into their gilded palace of emo sin and trying to outdo young upstarts Panic! At The Disco for costumed bufoonery, Fall Out Boy are now spraying their musk all over one of my favorite books, with “a Where The Wild Things Are theme” for their upcoming tour. “‘Where the Wild Things Are’ is a great narrative,” Pete Wentz told MTV as he beamed with delight over this next conceptual slight of hand: “It’s kind of a takeoff on the idea of young wild things wearing Dior ankle-monitoring bracelets.” Oy vey. But wait, Wentz isn’t done making you question why god allows bad things to happen to us all, because he’s considering Tay Zonday as the band’s opening act, going so far as to cruelly compare Zonday’s infernally froggy croak to Fall Out Boy’s already put-upon frontman Patrick Stump. You gonna take that, Maura?

    I continue to be amazed by Tay Zonday’s ability to parlay the opening piano bit from “Genie In A Bottle” into at least 30 minutes’ worth of fame.

    You know, when I saw this I first thought “I wonder if Dobi is gonna be doing the sets again.”

    And, lo and behold, Rob Dobi will in fact be doing the artwork. A Dobi-fied Where The Wild Things Are could be pretty interesting. Hopefully that lame poster isn’t an indication of what he’ll be doing with it, though.

    Didn’t we all get over the co-opting of Where The Wild Things Are when head shops started selling those marijuana-themed Max & the Wild Things t-shirts?

    i will never get over the co-opting of where the wild things are.

    If Panic! or anyone so much as glances at the works of Shel Silverstein there will be hell to pay.
