Lunch Break Links: May 7, 2007

A short Monday links, but a big Monday links nonetheless. Let's kick off the week with Pitchfork's interview with Jeff Tweedy. The new Wilco album drops next week, and while I haven't been keeping up as well as I'd like with high profile new releases, I certainly have an opinion on this one.

ABC has set an end date for Lost, a compromise of sorts that allows the show to go on for three more seasons (giving the network a more lucrative cash cow) but keeps the number of total episodes close to the producers' desired 100. (The final tally will be 120.) I'm not sure how I feel about this—the seasons will be pared down to 16 episodes now, and after the season finale two weeks from now, we may not get more episodes for almost nine months. Say it with me now... Damn.

Spider-Man 3 set pretty much every box office record it could have in its opening weekend. Too bad it suuuuuuucked.

Interesting tidbit here about Tori Amos and the use of "MILF" on TV.

The actual song "Chinese Democracy" has leaked.

So has new Amerie, and hopefully it's as kickin' as "1 Thing."

As attentive Alive readers may know, somebody in our office is getting married soon. She better watch out.

USA Today has a feature on ace comedy director Judd Apatow.

And Pop Candy directs us to The Boston Globe's interview with Cheryl Hines of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Waitress.

Last but not least, MySpace and Status Ain't Hood tell us DJ Jazzy Jeff is making a comeback in '07.
