It's come to my attention that I didn't post a band of the day for yesterday. Fear not; just take two today. They come from all over the world, and they're both playing with local metal masterminds Deadsea tonight at Cafe Bourbon Street. From Israel, you've got your Monotonix (who I regrettably could not catch up with on the phone) and from Japan, you've got your Green Milk from the Planet Orange. This is one Tuesday night show worth going out for.

New Walkmen, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and *throat-clearing sound* Snow Patrol songs from the Spider-Man III soundtrack are up at MySpace. The YYYs one in particular is really good.

Al Gore's Live Earth lineup is out. P. Diddy is planning a politcal bash of his own for Britain, along with Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand.

A mouse kept a flight grounded for four hours in Vietnam.

Variety looks at the reasons for Grindhouse's box office failure.

Speaking of awesome NBC Thursday night comedy, this guy is trying to transcribe every episode of The Office! I am very excited about this.

Also, goodbye Andy Barker, P.I. We hardly knew ye.

Are we living through a repeat of the "Me" decade?

And, perhaps more importantly, is there a step beyond keepin' it real? Find out beyond the jump.

Here's some vintage Ricky Gervais for those who need a laugh. And why not some Alec Baldwin too?

I guess this doesn't bode well for Blur making new music any time soon.

Smokin' Aces director Joe Carnahan's house was broken into. That's what happens when you make bad movies. (Or something.)

Deal Or No Deal is getting sued.

Finally, if you don't want to know what happened on The Sopranos Sunday night, read this parody instead.
