Just wanted to take some time to highlight a few stories we won’t be getting to today.? Plus, they’re really only worth a few sentences.
– Jamal Woolard has been cast as Biggie Smalls in the upcoming biopic about the late rapper.? Woolard is best known as the rapper Gravy, who was shot outside a New York radio station and rather than go to the hospital he proceeded to conduct his interview.? Werd.
– Heather has a look at the first Old 97’s song, “Dance With Me” in four years.? It sounds like you could tango to it.? Very cool.
– You can stream the new Tapes ‘N Tapes album on their website today until about noon CST.
– An alternate ending to the Will Smith movie I Am Legend has been making the rounds at movie sites.? The general concensus is that this ending is the better one.? I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I’m trying real hard not to watch this.
– Rolling Stone has a short blurb about the M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel collab She & Him.? Their album Volume One doesn’t hit until March 18, but after listening to it for the past week or so it’s definitely an album worth picking up.
– Alicia Silverstone has been cast on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother.? She’ll play a love interest for Ted.? The rumor is that the show might not be picked up next season, which would be retarded, and that Silverstone very well could be the mommy.
– Finally, Sen. Hillary Clinton has gone dirty by making Sen. Obama blacker than he actually is in new adds.? Literally, they’ve darkened his skin, for the reason of what?? Making him seem more Muslim-y or more black?? Trying to play up the inherent racism of either of those two things in voters’s minds.? Pathetic that she would stoop so low.? And somehow we want her as our next President?? I feel a soapbox coming on, but I won’t.
