ARTICLE: How to follow The Black Parade

DESPITE My Chemical Romance's fourth album falling flat in comparison to their hit album The Black Parade, the band have vowed that they'll only come back stronger. 

1. BLACK PARADE CONQUERED THE WORLD
 ... But My Chemical Romance's follow-up album Danger Days fell sharply off the priority list. "I don't think anybody made a misstep," the US group's frontman Gerard Way says. "Not only did whatever happened positively or negatively sales-wise not affect the band, it didn't affect the world's perception of the band as artists."

2. THE GREAT SHAME IN ALL OF THAT?
 Danger Days housed several shoulda-been hits that would have been huge were a different band's name on the cover. "If it had just been some random indie pop act that put out Sing, it would have been a massive tune," Gerard says. "We have an awesome bubble; sometimes that bubble is a barrier to getting things out there."

3. TIME TO DREAM IT ALL UP AGAIN
After spending summer on the Big Day Out, My Chem headed home to start album No.5 in their new studio. Bassist Mikey Way says he doesn't know what it will sound like, but it will wrong-foot unbelievers again. "People had formulated ideas about our band just based on seeing a kid in one of our T-shirts - and they were wrong."

4. THE LAST BAND ON EARTH
Sales rise and fall, but My Chemical Romance are survivors, says Gerard: "It's like building a better cockroach. There is s--- that's way bigger than us right now that's gonna be gone in two years and we're gonna be in the studio making an album. That's f---in' awesome."

"Nooooot a big deal, but I kind of met Frank Iero & Ray Toro of My Chem at Disneyland, by Pooh’s Thotful Spot no less. I felt a little lame asking for a picture & tried to bother them as little as possible, but they were absolute sweethearts about it!

Their babies were mad cute, btdubs."

VOTE: Black Keys, My Chemical Romance Lead Musical March Madness' Midwest [excerpt]

So with first-round voting open until Sunday (polls close at midnight ET), we're going to spend the next few days breaking down each Musical March Madness region, starting with the mighty, meaty Midwest, a bracket loaded with meat-and-potatoes rock acts ... and, uh, Bon Iver, too. Can the top-seeded Black Keys run the table? Will MMM superpowers My Chemical Romance continue their tradition of deep tournament runs? Or, like last year, will the Midwest go to an upset-minded underdog, like Chevelle or Sum 41? Read on for our picks in each opening-round tilt.

 #5 My Chemical Romance vs. #12 Death Cab for Cutie: MCR are the only band in MMM history to make the Final Four twice, including a heartbreaking championship-game loss to Coheed and Cambria in 2010. Death Cab? Uh, yeah ... they've been to the second round. Once. This one won't even be close: MCR are going far in this tourney.

ARTICLE [excerpt]: 10 Stalled Film & TV Adaptations That We Want To See Made

by Joseph Kratzer

At any given moment in the nebulous world of big studio film production there are as many phantoms floating around as there are solid movies made. Regardless of whether these loosely connected collections of ideas, scripts, and attached names ever find a home and a green light, these potential projects permeate production offices, studio meetings, agents’ agendas as well as blogs and news sites just like this.

Of these phantoms, those that draw the most passionate feedback, whether they spark hope for the possibility of seeing a childhood memory brought to life on the big screen or threaten to rip apart the internet under the weight of fans’ collective rage, are those that are adapted from works of science fiction and fantasy. These adaptations continue to be the go to projects of many producers due to the burgeoning success of the genres in film and television (thanks to the floodgate of comic book movies and book series based TV programs released in the last ten years), the seemingly unlimited amount of source material with built in fan bases to draw upon, and of course the inherent lack of creativity and originality in studio executives.

As this is a well documented trend, one that deserves its own set of subgenres, I’d rather not dwell too heavily on what we pop culture aficionados already know like Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s Secret Service or Warner Bros.’ rumored Bleach adaptation (and the countless others) and instead shine some light in no particular order on the ten most highly anticipated and obscure adaptations still yet to be officially confirmed yet might actually happen.

1. UMBRELLA ACADEMY
I cannot recommend The Umbrella Academy  enough as it is as darkly humorous as it is action packed and deeply affecting. My Chemical Romance’s lyricist and vocalist, Gerard Way, who graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1999 and interned at Cartoon Network before assembling his now world famous rock band, is the creator and writer of the 2008 Eisner Award winning Dark Horse series, The Umbrella Academy, about the surreal adventures (like defeating a zombie operated Eiffel Tower or time traveling to ensure JFK’s assassination) of an estranged family of mysteriously super powered orphans reunited after the death of their mentor.

Last summer Deadline reported Dodgeball writer and director Rawson Thurber was hired by Universal to re-work a script by Mark Bomback. Although the third volume from Way was announced to be released in 2010 and has gone with no further announcements, it stands to reason the creative forces behind it are simply busy with other projects – Way with his band, and artist Gabriel Ba with Matt Fraction’s Casanova.

Now if only Claudio Sanchez of Coheed & Cambria can get a movie deal out of his Amory Wars comic series they could start some sort of club.
