Lunch Break Links: March 29, 2007
Doc Jensen has a recap.
Grindhouse is coming soon. Somebody on the donewaiting forum pointed out this awesome review of the double-feature at Ain't It Cool News. Warning: It's not for the faint of heart.
He may be Irish, but Bono is now a British knight. (And not the kind you can win on Double Dare.)
Did you know Ohio State has been in 10 Final Fours?
I keep finding references to this NY Times feature on an Iranian rock band that's touring America, so it must be pretty intriguing.
The world keeps on getting stranger. Ladies and gentlemen: Modest Mouse, makers of the No. 1 album in the country.
I don't think I posted this yet: Jack White is going to play Elvis in a movie called Walk Hard. According to The Guardian, the movie is a spoof of Walk the Line.
Try not to get buried alive under all the links in store beyond the jump...
Have you heard about this Eddie Griffin car crash?
(Also, is it just me, or are they raising the price of stamps a lot more frequently these days? Guess the music industry isn't the only one grappling with the Internet.)
These folks think they've made a big discovery about "Young Folks," the subterranean hit from Peter Bjorn and John. The song's whistling hook is derived from a classic melody known as the "Asian riff" that we all would probably recognize.

TV Guide has a blog entry from Kate Flannery (Meredith) of The Office.
EW took a look at the hitmaking power of The OC and Grey's Anatomy.
From NME via Pop Candy: The new Beastie Boys album is "gonna be sick!"
Also, I thought The X-Files had been mercifully put to rest, but it seems a second movie could be happening.
ESPN's Jemele Hill thinks Kobe is better than MJ.
Finally, your friend who's into politics made you feel stupid again. Poor you.
