My Milkshake Brings All The Boys To The Yard

I read in the Red Eye earlier this morning that Sean Penn is going to play Harvey Milk, the openly gay San Francisco political official who was assassinated in 1978. His assassination sparked the "White Night" riots and prompted further action calling for equal rights for the LGBT community. Meanwhile, there is a band from Athens Georgia named Harvey Milk, and they're really heavily sexy Doom/Sludge/Post Metal. It would be cool if they got called to do the movie soundtrack, most especially since they have a new album out (which is stellar) and ultra-journeyman/heavy end wizard Joe Preston plays live bass for them.
