Do you know what Tuesday is? It’s April 28th. What’s so special about April 28th? Ben Folds presents: Universtiy A Cappella! comes out! I L-O-V-E Ben Folds and leave it to him to come up with this spin on the ol’ “Greatest Hits” idea. “What should I expect?” you might be asking yourself. Well, here’s a little sample for you from two of the groups who were chosen for the album.

I love Ben Folds for many reasons. He’s ridiculously talented and embraces humour in his music as well as the usual heavier, emotional stuff you find in the land of music these days. If you’ve never delved any deeper into “the Folds”, you should. It’s a nice place.

And now on to non-Ben-related things. I’m digging Golden Filter. Here is their video for “Solid Gold”. Solid.

I would really love for the Stone Roses to reunite. If only the rumours could be true…

Neko Case will be coming to town in June. Here’s a vid for “People Got A Lotta Nerve” to get you in the mood.

Editorial comment: Hey, HULU! Quit being a-holes and get going on the worldwide viewing already! Don’t we suffer enough with our shitty excuse for a comedy network and our sub-par cartoon channel? Where’s the love?

Whole Wide World

Chromeo keeps it clean on Yo Gabba Gabba!

It always really upsets me when I hear stories on the news about people taking advantage of elderly people. So when I heard about this 84 year-old man kicking ass, I had to give him some props.

You may have heard Disney is making an updated version of Tron called TR2N. While the only thing that gives me any confidence in the Disney mega-machine is their association with Pixar, they are on the right track tagging Daft Punk to do the score for this one.

Remember that show 3rd Rock from the Sun? Remember that kid, Joseph Gordon-Levitt? My friend’s brother’s company softball team used to play against the 3rd Rock team, so they sometimes would go hang out with him on occasion and they all thought he was a pretty cool guy. Well, it turns out he’s all grown up and we’ll just say he’s aged well. He’s got a movie coming out called 500 Days of Summer with Zooey Deschanel.

Excellent soundtrack as well, and if you’re interested in reading director Marc Webb’s song-by-song breakdown, it’s here. I have 6 words for you: Patrick Swayze – “She’s Like the Wind”.

N.W.A. movie? I hope it doesn’t suck.

Flaming Lips covering “Borderline”. Yes, that “Borderline”. Ace.
