More Peelander-Z Jams In April!

Sorry Pitchfork, as much as you want to hype Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavillion as the first major release of 2009, I do believe a Japanese Comic Punk band has you beaten.

That’s right, everyone’s favorite band from Planet Peelander, Peelander-Z, has officially announced their new album.

It’s entitled P-Pop High School and hits shelves, both physical and virtual, on April 1st.

As usual, they’ll be touring like crazy behind it, with a journey that takes them all around the US, starting in March and ending in May.  What’s awesome?  They’ll have copies of the album in hand before it’s official release date.  So if you’re lucky enough to see them in March, you can check out some P-Z goodness early.

Now, if you please…how do you like your steak?

Burger King Wants Your Friends To Hate You

I know we’ve been afraid of The King for a few years now, but I’ve officially become convinced that Burger King is pure evil.

Just yesterday, BK announced a brand new Facebook application entitled WHOPPER SACRIFICE.

What’s the gimmick?  Here goes…

You install “Whopper Sacrifice”, and upon clicking it, you get a list of your Facebook friends.  For every 10 friends you highlight, and choose to delete, you get a coupon for a free Whopper.

Here’s the catch!  Your friend, who you “sacrificed”, gets a message indicating that you feel that they are less important to you than a Whopper.

Thanks BK and Facebook!  I can only imagine the legion of scorned exes and fairweather friends which are making burger lovers’ life a living hell today.
