- You know what sucks about reading? Words. So to that end, the good folks from the 33 1/3 music book series will let you download the newest installment focusing on the Beastie Boys classic Paul's Boutique for free!
- Eminem is putting on a free show in Detroit to promote the release of his new album. I hope there is plenty of security there, as something tells me things could get out of hand really quickly. Free shows don't always end so nicely.
- Pearl Jam will be the first band to play The Tonight Show once Conan O'Brien takes over. Does this mean it's cool for people to admit liking them again?
- You can now purchase your very own G.G. Allen "throbblehead." It's forehead is already bloodied and the body is already covered in poop, so it's pretty acurate... and you don't have to add to it yourself.
