ďHey everyone! Iím Sulynn. Iíll be responsible for adding long hair head banging and stage left guitar riffage at Propagandhi shows from here on out. Iím from Tampa, Florida where I spend my days drinking lots of coffee, nerding out on the guitar for hours, running my own business teaching guitar, and squeezing in sweaty yoga sessions when I can. I feel beyond stoked to get to play with a group of guys who have influenced my playing and taste for a very long time. Itís gonna be a rad time, and I hope to get to share the experience with you all. Letís rage!Ē
It looks like Jack Dorsey is going to be named the new CEO of Twitter. I think this is a good move, given the options. I sincerely hope Twitter becomes as important to others as it has become to me. I honestly can't think of a more used app on my phone than Tweetbot (which is telling how important the service is to me, and how badly the first party apps suck).
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who has been serving as interim CEO for the past three months, is expected be named the companyís new permanent CEO as early as tomorrow, although that timeframe may change, according to sources. Dorsey will apparently continue to run Square, the payments company he founded where heís also CEO.

Check out the tune in the replies and then pre-order these jams via Smartpunk.
Apparently Pope Francis was working behind the scenes to undermine gay rights in America. How shameful and pathetic of him. I have been so impressed with his approach to climate and his call to end the death penalty in the US. But for him to make insidious comments about how the "traditional family" is under threat (presumably from gay marriage) and then to secretly meet that poor misguided cretin Kim Davis... I am glad that he is mobilizing his flock to care about nature, but i would still prefer that they would all just go to their heaven now and leave the rest of humanity and nature...
Phoenix's Sundressed will release their second EP of the year, The Same Condition, on October 23rd via Take This to Heart Records. We're streaming a new track from the effort titled "Good as You" in the replies. The indie punk sound is elevated by a huge hook reminiscent of vintage Boys Like Girls or Cute Is What We Aim For.
If you like acoustic tunes that are a little more folk than punk you might want to check out Sam Russo, a singer/songwriter all the way from the U.K. who is releasing his sophomore full-length, Greyhound Dreams, next week on October 9 via Red Scare Industries.
