Tron : Legacy looks like it is going to be really really awesome: the reflector-panel rave outfits look rad and the orchestral Daft Punk track is totally intense and every character speaks like a villain which is half-scary and half-amusing. And - hang on a minute?! - is that chick in the white jumpsuit Jessica Stam...

My head just exploded a little.

GO FONT UR SELF* is a fantastic art exhibition featuring works by a blend of local and international artists, designers and typographers, and is a design nerd's wet dream and an amazing display of talent that anyone with a jones for contemporary art will love.

The ongoing exhibition, that kicked off in 2009, showcases artists that embrace letterforms as the inspiration behind their pieces and the first GO FONT UR SELF* show for 2010 is launching tonight at Brisbane's Nine Lives gallery, followed by one-night-only jaunts in Sydney and Melbourne.

This year's showcase brings you a collection of 14 artworks from some the world's most critically acclaimed typographers - including ABOVE (California, USA), YOK (Perth), TIMBA SMITS (Melbourne), and SUPER EXPRESSO (Barcelona, Spain).

Billy Corgan is looking for musicians to fill the spot of current bassist Ginger Pooley (who has taken indefinite maternity leave) and also play keyboards in the band to ensure the Smashing Pumpkins sound is Rihanna-tight for their forthcoming gig at Splendour In The Grass, which we mentioned in our Splendour lineup leak. A lineup that so far is looking 100% accurate, and has been reaffirmed by reliable Australian music blog Polaroids Of Androids.

If you are a talented musician interested in touring the world with Smashing Pumpkins while happily sacrificing creative control and making epic art-rock music vids, the two available band spots will be filled via an open audition process.

Audition Info:
Bassists and keyboardists looking to play with The Pumpkins should send their background info, photos and performance web links via email only, either to pumpkinsbass@gmail.com or pumpkinskeys@gmail.com. Note: only musicians with video clips can be considered. Youtube.com type posts are perfect - that's how Mike [current Pumpkins dummer] was found. Hurry: the final submission date is March 31st.

A word of warning:
Former Pumpkins' guitarist James Iha said that Billy Corgan is a band-monopolizing megalomaniac but, then again, how credible is James Iha when he currently plays in a band with that chick from Hanson?
