    After an extensive tour for Folie à Deux, the members of Fall Out Boy each have their own reasons to take a break. Patrick Stump, lead vocals, is at the heaviest weight he has been and hates the “emo” titling Fall Out Boy had be associated with. Andy Hurley, drummer, fallsl into a deep state of depression after coming off tour to an empty schedule. Pete Wentz, bassist, has been abusing Xanax and is divorced by his wife, Ashlee Simpson, and is on a rigorous therapy schedule. Patrick Stump:

    It’s been about ten years and for a better part of that we were working constantly. We were tired of the grind. We would play 500 shows in a two-year period, you know? And the other thing — the fact that we weren’t all into the same kind of music made the band kind of cool, but it’s very strange when it’s expected that you be monogamous with that band for the rest of your life. Andy Hurley is a metal drummer, first and foremost, and it was really awkward for him to think that he’d never play metal again. It was awkward for me to never sing R&B music again or to never play drums myself. Everybody had their own reasoning. It’s not creative difference. It’s just, like, creative wanderlust.

  • 220px-FobfolieFall Out Boy releases Folie à Deux (French for “A Madness Shared by Two” ), the bands fourth studio album. Unlike it’s predecessors, Folie à Deux debutes at number eight on the Billboard Top 100 chart, making it the third top ten album from the band. This album is the first Fall Out Boy album to feature lyrics that are not autobiographical. The album features Lil Wayne and Pharrell, along with Blondie’s Deborah Harry. Joe Trohman:

    We mix the influences in a way that sounds new and complete. But they all can’t work. For instance, I love heavy metal. But for me to insert Randy Rhoads licks into Fall Out Boy’s music, it’d sound crazy. So I hold back, which creates a cool kind of tension. I think casual listeners can pick up on that, even if they’re not sure why it’s happening.

  • While a Battalion Scout private in the 423rd Infantry Regiment, 106th Infantry Division, Vonnegut is captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge.

    We were in this gully about as deep as a World War I trench. There was snow all around. Somebody said we were probably in Luxembourg. We were out of food. The Germans could see us, because they were talking to us through a loudspeaker. They told us our situation was hopeless, and so on. That was when we fixed bayonets. It was nice there for a few minutes. Then the Germans started firing eighty-eight millimeter shells. The shells burst in the treetops right over us. Those were very loud bangs right over our heads. We were showered with splintered steel. Some people got hit. Then the Germans told us again to come out. We didn’t yell ‘nuts’ or anything like that. We said, ‘Okay,’ and ‘Take it easy,’ and so on. When the Germans finally showed themselves, we saw they were wearing white camouflage suits. We didn’t have anything like that. We were olive drab. No matter what season it was, we were olive drab.

    They said the war was all over for us, that we were lucky, that we could now be sure we would live through the war, which was more than they could be sure of. As a matter of fact, they were probably killed or captured by Patton’s Third Army within the next few days. I tried a few words I knew on our captors, and they asked me if I was of German ancestry, and I said, “Yes.” They wanted to know why I was making war against my brothers. I honestly found the question ignorant and comical. My parents had separated me so thoroughly from my Germanic past that my captors might as well have been Bolivians or Tibetans, for all they meant to me.
