We've had a great round of playlists so far since we started AbsolutePlaylist in January; everything from southern rock, to highschool crush mixtapes, to pop/punk nostalgia. Now we're turning to our community for submissions. Head over to our music forum for the rules. Just drop your submissions right in the thread and if you're chosen, you'll be featured on the front page!

If you missed the playlist this week, Blake Solomon put together an excellent one highlighting the 20th anniversary of Weezer's Blue Album. Check it out here.

Welp, the website tried to become self-aware this morning -- sorry about that. Fixed the bug in the software. So, hey, speaking of advertising: Japanese beverage maker Otsuka is sending a 1 kilogram titanium can filled with powdered sports drink to the moon.
The specially designed canister, which contains a shipment of Otsuka's Pocari Sweat powder, will mark a disturbing new frontier for humanity: the first commercial product delivered to another world for marketing purposes.

The AbsolutePunk Podcast now has its own page here on the website (you can also find it on the footer of any page). If you're looking for the latest episode or want to send someone to a page to check out our podcast -- now you can. Also, this is a good time to ask for you to rate our podcast in iTunes if you have a spare moment. It actually does help get us some promotion on the iTunes store -- so we would really appreciate it! Thank you. Hope you're all enjoying, if you have any feedback, feel free to leave it for us in the replies.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Weezer's Blue Album, we've put together a pretty cool playlist featuring some of the band's "deep cuts." No singles allowed, and we tried to include at least one song from all of their full-length albums. There's also a group of music videos featuring some of the best songs Weezer have covered, and some videos of the best covers of Weezer songs. So come inside and let Rivers and the Gang remind you why they made us love them in the first place, and why we'll continue to love them even as we all grow old and gross. Also, in case you missed it last week, Drew wrote up a very interesting article about just what a mark the Blue Album left on all of us...

I decided to get a little nostalgic with this week's AbsolutePlaylist by looking at some of my favourite Canadian pop-punk/punk tracks from the 2000s. Since I was born in 1990 that's the first decade I really started paying attention to music and while most of those bands aren't doing stuff in 2014 I know I'll never totally forget about them. Check out my picks in the replies and feel free to chime in with your favourite songs too.

This week on the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Zack and I sat down with Nate Dorough from Fusion Shows to talk some insider baseball about putting on shows, booking festivals, a whole lot of Brand New stuff (weird how many of my conversations somehow come back to this), and why Fusion Shows doesn't charge any services fees on tickets for their shows. We also talk a lot about Bled Fest, which is coming up in Michigan on May 24th. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies.

Am I the only person in the world that remembers the pop-punk band Larger Than Life? I was going through some old files on my computer and came across their EP If Tomorrow Never Came -- with the "resurgence" in pop-punk I feel like I should randomly submit bands that flew way under the radar before to Tumblr blogs and see if I can't get them some buzz. These guys, Unsung Zeros, The Goodwill ... someone would bite, right? Anyway, I tossed If Tomorrow Never Came up on SoundCloud and you can stream it in the replies.

Some sections of the website are going to start getting a little "lipstick on the pig" updates -- the first being our interview section. The new format can be checked out here and here, if you find any bugs or issues please let me know (including browser and operating system helps a ton).
