Playback: The Week (5/9/08 - 5/16/08) In Review

What you missed on DC9 this week as you wondered, "Are they or aren't they?" and collectively dumbed down the entire region...

-We saw The New York Times waaaaaaaaay overestimate the amount of fans UNT football has. -We got all "OMFG" about Lisa Loeb's appearance on Gossip Girl. -We got confirmation that Ozzfest 2008 would be a one-day, one-off fest in Frisco. -We found out the details on the next Toadies release. -We recalled Rhett Miller's barbecue sauce sell-out. -We ambushed Denton with some Japanther. -We found out Tiger Moth's plans to re-open the Darkside. -And we, again, spread the joy of free mp3 downloads:
