SpongeBob SquarePants Says "Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)"
PR reports: This year marks the 10th anniversary of the hit series SpongeBob SquarePants as well as the release of "Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)" from Nick Records. It's the first-ever holiday song by the undersea-dwelling preternaturally happy yellow porifera, the world's most popular cartoon character.

"Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)," destined to be an eternal holiday favorite going forward, is a song with a message, an important and timely message. As Tom Kenny, the comic actor who has voiced SpongeBob for the series' entire duration and sings SpongeBob's part on the song, puts it, "It's a plea is for a minimal diminishment of jerk-oriented activities and attitudes for a mere 24 hour period; in other words, "Don't Be A Jerk, (It's Christmas)."

Kenny, who co-wrote "Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)" with pop music veteran Andy Paley, continues, "Humankind seems to be entering a whole new era of 'jerkism' with politicians screaming at each other, sports figures throwing tantrums, self-indulgent entertainers making fools of themselves, and fame-seeking parents exploiting their kids -- one or eight at a time. The song addresses and decries that lack of civility in large and small ways. Logic says that -- with apologies to Charles Dickens -- if we have a ghost of a chance to succeed, it's going to be at this time of year. The idea is to start with Christmas and then, maybe, go on to deal with 'jerkitude' the other 364 days of the year." - more on this story

Liars To Give Us Sisterworld Next Year
PR reports: Liars announce the release of their fifth studio album, "Sisterworld," in early 2010.

This is the first Liars album to be recorded entirely in the USA since 2004's "They Were Wrong, So We Drowned" and sees Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross taking inspiration from fringe characters lured to LA and the resulting subcultures and alternate spaces that they generate.

"Sisterworld" is Liars' own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society. - more on this story
