In with the Out Crowd
In with the Out Crowd is the sixth studio album by American ska-punk band Less Than Jake, released on May 23, 2006 on Sire Records. Produced by Howard Benson, who had worked with the band on their third studio album, Hello Rockview, the album was preceded by the single "Overrated" and an EP of material recorded during the same sessions, entitled Absolution for Idiots and Addicts. Prior to the album's release, Vinnie stated: "won't be a throwback record, it isn't like anything. There's slow, The Specials influenced ska minor chord ska, over the top, catchy pop-punk, some Foo Fighters influences too. Doing the same record twice would short change the people who like the band. You know, things can't feel redone. You have to try to keep pushing the genre and the band style forward." Guitarist, Chris Demakes, notes that the band: "jumped out of the box a little bit and we did something a little different. I think we’re up to like 140 songs as a band, you release some songs and a bunch of kids bitch about it.
“Oh, this band is over with!” It's. If you like it, you like it. If you don’t, you don’t.” Upon its release and lyricist, Vinnie Fiorello, described the record as "a mix of Hello Rockview and Boundaries and Anthem." The album is notable for featuring far less involvement from its horn section than on past albums. In an interview promoting the band's subsequent album, GNV FLA, saxophonist JR noted, "There was a lot of backlash from our last record from a lot of our core fans, and whether it was deserved or not is neither here nor there. It's not worth fighting about. With Howard Benson acting as producer, Mike Plotnikoff oversaw recording. Paul Decarli recorded horns and did Pro Tools editing with assistance from engineer Hatsukazu Inagaki. Benson performed keyboards and did programming, while Lenny Castro played percussion. Plotnikoff mixed the majority of the songs at Glenwood Place Studios in Burbank, California with assistance from Ian Suddarth. Chris Lord-Alge mixed "Overrated", "Fall Apart", "Hopeless Case" and "The Rest of My Life".
The album artwork features a photo collage of pictures sent in by fans. The band members themselves are mixed throughout.

In 2016, bass guitarist Roger Lima reflected on his dissatisfaction with the overall writing and recording process, stating: "I wanted to write songs that were a little bit faster and more punk rock sounding, but the producer that we were working with at the time, Howard Benson, who we’d worked with on Hello Rockview, was kind of curving us in the direction of a softer, more slow-tempo mainstream sound. So this album kind of rubbed me in a bit of a weird way. Overall I like the songs, I just wish the production was a little bit more on the punk rock side of things, I don’t feel like this album was the best representation of how we wanted to sound at that time.” All songs written except where noted. Personnel per booklet. A special edition of the album was released, it included: In with the Out Crowd CD a DVD featuring twenty minutes of studio footage a data disc including 319 photos, 26 MP3s of live songs, 13 live videos, 4 buddy icons, 4 wallpapers and a screensaver "Negative Sides of Optimistic Eyes" "We, the Uninspired" "Only Human""Neg

Grease: You're the One That I Want!
Grease: You're the One That I Want! is an NBC reality television series designed to cast the lead roles of Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zuko in a $10 million Broadway revival of the musical Grease to be directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall. The Broadway production began previews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on July 24, 2007, opened on August 19; the TV show, from the producers of Dancing With the Stars, was patterned after an original format created by Andrew Lloyd Webber for the BBC series How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, which selected the lead in the successful 2006 West End revival of The Sound of Music. The show's title was taken from the song "You're the One That I Want" from the 1978 screen adaptation of Grease. Although the song was not part of the original Broadway production, the revival will add the songs written for the film to those written for the original Broadway production; the program generated so much interest in the upcoming Broadway revival that, as The New York Post reported on April 4, 2007, ticket sales had topped $9 million, although the TV show was a "ratings loser".
The show held open auditions in Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles in October and November 2006. The show followed the successes and failures of performers of varying quality and experience through the audition process; the show's hosts, Access Hollywood anchor Billy Bush and British actress/presenter Denise van Outen and interviewed the auditioners. The applicants were whittled down to 50, who attended "Grease Academy" for intensive training and testing in voice and dance. From these, 12 contestants were selected by the judges; the panel of three judges consisted of director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall, Grease co-writer Jim Jacobs, British producer David Ian. In addition episodes of the show featured guest judges Olivia Newton-John, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jon Secada, Rob Marshall, as well as guest performer Frankie Avalon; the number of contestants rose to 14 in the fourth episode when two eliminated contestants, Matt Nolan and Ashley Anderson, were brought back and given a second chance.
The first episode aired in a 90-minute format at 8:00 pm Eastern U. S. time on January 7, 2007. Subsequent episodes of the limited-run series were one hour long. After the judges had selected the contestants, viewer voting began at the end of the first live show, which aired on January 28; each week, the contestants were coached on a performance skill -- dancing or acting. The contestants' performances were critiqued by the judges, after which the viewers voted for their favorite performers; the two lowest vote recipients in each group from the previous week were required to compete in a "sing-off", on the next episode, where the judges chose which two should be allowed to remain in the competition, which two would be eliminated. At the end of each episode, the eliminated Danny sang "Sandy" as his grand exit, the eliminated Sandy sang "Goodbye to Sandra Dee" as her grand exit. In the season finale on March 25, 2007, judge Kathleen Marshall stated that if she would have had to choose two performers at the end of the "Grease Academy" section, she would have chosen Julianna and Derek.
However, by the time of the finale she was quite vocal in wanting Max and Laura as her "Danny" and "Sandy". For her, it was announced that the program's viewing audience agreed as they had chosen contestants Laura Osnes and Max Crumm to star as Sandy and Danny; the runners up were Austin Miller. Osnes and Crumm stayed with the Broadway company till July 20, 2008. Two days Ashley Spencer and Derek Keeling took over the roles of Sandy and Danny. Allie Schulz understudied the roles of Sandy, Cha-Cha, Patty on Broadway and originated the role Rizzo in the national tour of Grease with Eric Schneider as Danny and Emily Padgett as Sandy. Season 5 American Idol winner Taylor Hicks performed as the Teen Angel; the Broadway production ended on January 2009, after 31 previews and 554 performances. Week 1: "You're The One That I Want!"/"We Go Together" Week 2: "Summer Nights" Week 3: "Born to Hand Jive" Week 4: "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee" Week 5: "Greased Lightning" Week 6: "Grease" Week 7: "Rock and Roll is Here to Stay" Week 8:"We Go Together"/"You're The One That I Want!"

Week 2: "Tears on My Pillow" Week 3: "Those Magic Changes" Week 4: "Blue Moon" Week 5: "It's Raining on Prom Night" Week 6: "Rock and Roll Party Queen" A similar show was broadcast in the United Kingdom during the first half of 2007. Grease Is the Word was broadcast on ITV, with judges David Ian, David Gest, 1980s singer Sinitta, American dance icon Brian Friedman. Starting on 7 April 2007 the show followed a similar format to that of the American one.
