Maybe I'm just really behind, but I heard a while ago that Coldplay was having issues and was taking a break, so I assumed that the band was on the verge of breaking up and was very sad. I was shocked to receive this in my inbox from Coldplay.com:
We're very pleased to announce that Coldplay's new single, 'Violet Hill', will be available as a free download exclusively from Coldplay.com for one week starting tomorrow, Tuesday April 29th, at 12.15pm UK time. This is a full week ahead of the single's conventional paid-for digital release, on Tuesday May 6th.
Then, on Wednesday May 7th, there will be a free limited edition 7-inch vinyl of 'Violet Hill' on the cover of NME magazine, backed by the exclusive B-side, 'A Spell A Rebel Yell'.
That would be 6:15 PM CST, I believe, today (Monday)! I'm stoked! Check out the new album cover:
I saw Harold and Kumar: Escape from Amsterdam and would love to review it and do a post right now, but I have work to do and I'm sick, so I can't waste any more time than I already have. I'm going to try really hard to post on Tuesday. My score for the movie will probably end up being B+ (go see it if you liked the first, but just put aside high expectations of it being another comedy classic and realize it's another stoner comedy).
