...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

So I checked out 'The Runaways' this past week

Meh. I dunno. Maybe I was expecting a little more. Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning were awesome, and Michael Shannon as producer Kim Fowley was fab and all. I guess it just seems a tad watered down for the screen. Doesn't help that Lita Ford had zero to do with the production (a mutual choice, I believe), and other than Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, the rest of the band members are ignored. It's definitely worth a watch, but don't get your panties in a bunch.
