Those of you wondering about Pete Wentz’s assertion that Fall Out Boy’s Infinity On High directly inspired Cloverfield–and worried about the eleven billion nausea-inducing tribute videos and fanfics such a paring would inspire–can put your suspicions to rest: Screenwriter Drew Goddard merely said that he listened to the album a lot during his writing of the movie, and that he wasn’t mentally working out some Wizard Of Oz-slash-Pink Floyd-style mashup while drafting its pages. Well, OK, this news probably won’t stop the fanfictioneers, but then again, a monster attack on New York City probably wouldn’t either. They’re that dedicated! [MTV / Photo: Getty]

    Does this mean that the monster was actually Patrick Stump’s thighs??

    Perhaps the monster hated the Kings of Leon and was moved to act.

  3. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    @Ned Raggett: I will say, I thought the music at the party was pretty good. It even included one of my favorite songs of 2007, “West Coast” by Coconut Records. Love that song.

    Best comment ever:

    “I was so upset when they showed the monster.
    And if they were going for realism, which they obviously weren’t, the dude should have dropped the camara when the head of the Statue of Liberty came flying at him.

    It was an okay movie. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t not hate it.”

    @futurehorse: But of course!

    And Pete has quite an ego, doesn’t he?
