If you're not a freshman, it's very likely that you've downloaded the WLFM stream for the Great Midwest Trivia Contest, but it doesn't have to be January for you to tune in.”

Don't get me wrong, his two characters do share some similarities: "Brick" finds Gordon-Levitt playing Brendan Frye, a no-nonsense high-school loner with some faux-detective leanings whose girlfriend recently dumped him, a role not too far removed from the more cheerful but equally lonely Tom Hansen he plays in "(500) Days of Summer.”

Summer concert recap

So after seeing several New York concerts this summer, I promised myself that I would not spend any more money on overpriced train tickets or jazz clubs.”

Both 2008's overproduced shtickfest, "Weezer," and the star-studded and uninspired "Raditude" left the fanbase with little confidence, but a new release on the classic punk label Epitaph was enough to generate whispers of a return to the "Blue Album" and "Pinkerton" sound.”
