This Tuesday, the 4th of July, we are filming a massive portrait of America, capturing a single day in the life of this beautiful country in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Itís an incredible opportunity to document the USA during a very important time in our country.

And we need your help.

We are asking you to film whatís important, impactful, challenging or inspiring to you.

It can be a single shot, a person, an entire event, or a compelling story - we want to see your America in all its imperfect glory.

When shooting, please try to be as brave, bold and creative as possible. The most compelling footage will be what makes it into the final portrait.

30 Seconds to Mars are one of those bands who just want sooo bad to be important but it's definitely not happening.

Doesn't help that Leto is an uber-douche.

You mean they wanna be like U2 or something? Not that they're culturally relevant or anything like they might think. I think the last real cultural relevant band was Nirvana. Internet has fragmented things to where that kinda thing might not happen again.

Fysche went to high school with Leto. I met him once briefly but I didn't know he was a musician, just an actor.

This project has been done by countless people/individuals/organisations/film makers before.

There is nothing new under the sun.

I still don't know what the point of Corgan's jolly across America was.

I think they do the whole "anthems for Coke commercials" thing to death. Whatever that one album was where every song had "uplifting" background vocals by a chorus of their fans is the last I heard anything from them. Seemed (and still seems) they're reaching for U2-esque heights but they aren't as talented or as appealing as they seem to think. I don't know if any of that is coherent; it's just an overall vibe I get from them.

I like Leto fine as an actor, but if I saw Suicide Squad, my opinion on his acting abilities would probably turn as well.

I think he was trying to remember what it's like to not be an insufferable egotistical rock star.

Billy's got his album in the can. He's done his roadtrip. The video's being edited (apparently). Now Leto's stealing his hype.

They're basically doing the same thing except Leto's fanbase and budget are way bigger. The dude has pro film crews over the country and enough fans that when he says "get involved" -they actually do. He runs a Summer Camp for fans ffs.

One glaring difference, though, is Billy's idea of America seems to be on a MAGA tip, whereas Leto is asking what it means to be American today. I guarantee the projects will be compared by critics assuming Billy's thing actually gets released.

Yep, I think the glaring difference is that Leto's project might actually see the light of day.

ahh...I'm not that familiar with their music. I did think that one song from this album you speak to was pretty good, but the video was a bit of a reach for some type of social significance -- the one where in the beginning of it fans are getting all emotional about emoting and stuff.

Fysche was waiting for me to finish some pick-up hoops on Venice Beach one day and I see her and Paul there talking to a few guys. I didn't even know who Leto was; he had a baseball hat on with big sunglasses and it was a quick introduction and off we went. Fysche was going on about how he's some big actor who just finished a movie with Nicholas Cage, which I did end up seeing and is a pretty good flick, Lord of War I think it was.

30 Seconds To Mars' first album is a lot of fun. It's like Tool meets Depeche Mode. Very electronic and prog-rock / prog-metal. The next one sounds like a poor man's My Chemical Romance. There are a couple of tracks off of that one that I like. They lost with me with everything after that.

Yeah, I've only really heard their earlier albums, which was apparently before they became huge with the youngsters.

This is Leto's post about the fan submissions:

Quote:
We are absolutely blown away by all of your contributions. We have thousands and thousands and thousands of submissions and are beyond inspired by what you sent. It was a day in our lives we will never forget.
Thank you so much for helping to make this dream a reality.
It's gratitude like that that makes being a fan of Billy Corgan feel like an abusive relationship.

Leto: "You deserve love and respect"
Billy: "You didn't respond how I wanted you to and now you get the hose"

Their second album the emo MCR sounding one was when they started catching on. From what I've heard of the more recent stuff it's U2 light. They definitely sold out and lost their edge. There are also some really cool non album tracks from their early days like Revolution and Anarchy in Tokyo.

ru serious? im not a homophobe btw, for christ sakes...to each his own, just leave the kids alone.


anyway...i played baseball through college and played hoops to stay in shape at times. I could ball when I really wanted to, but in those pick up games you have to be careful of undercuts, so fuck all that...i'd usually assume playmaker duties, set guys up and take the open jumpers.

i see...you're not doing that indie-kid "the first albums ahrite" bit are you? j/k, that trajectory makes sense. but Tool meets Depeche Mode is right down my alley, i sit musically in there myself at times.

ya think? pretty much, huh. I checked out the APC rig rundown with Howerdel and James. It was nice to see how Howerdel only uses 2 guitars through a tour, not 10 to 15. They tune to C sharp though I think, which is why they're so permanently drony, but not in a bad way -- his tone is unique and on point.
