It's Lost day again, which means more teasers and theories from Doc Jensen.

What's the matter with Kansas? This week it's kids holding up a Dollar General with a squirt gun.

Uh, here's the cover of the new Smashing Pumpkins album.

The Village Voice's Siren Festival is possibly kaput after this year, given the imminent destruction of Coney Island, but this year it's still happening (July 21) and it's still free. Here's the initial lineup.

Jeff Tweedy thinks it's OK if I don't like his new album, which is a good thing because I don't.

I like this new AV Club feature "Random Roles," in which they interview a veteran actor about his parts in various movies. It starts with Jon Gries (aka Uncle Rico), who popped up on Lost last week, by the way.

Today is CBS day at the Upfronts.

If you read indie music sites at all, you now know the name Dan Deacon. The Baltimore beatmaster is getting a lot of attention for his new album The Spiderman of the Rings. Baltimore City Paper seems like the best place to get the inside story.

Finally, Pop Candy points us to Flickrvision, a new feature on photo hub Flickr that allows you to see photos being uploaded from all over the world in real time. It's probably the coolest thing I've seen this week (other than that Animal Collective show that I swear I'll write about today). Enjoy your voeyuristic globetrotting, and I'll see you back here later.
