Columbus Alive

Last week ended badly with the deaths of Tony Wilson and Merv Griffin; let's kick this week off with some laughter.

Premiere recently had a comedy week with lots of cool content. One of my favorite parts is a list of the 20 hottest new faces in comedy, which is pretty spot-on—lots of Office faces, the best of the current SNL crop, horses from the Judd Apatow stable... They also have interviews with Superbad's Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, the men behind Hot Fuzz and Andy Samberg's crew, the Lonely Island guys. It's a really complete, entertaining package, so be sure to check it out.

Pitchfork has an interview with the leatherfaced Iggy Pop.

Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones concert film has been pushed back to 2008.

James Gandolfini is coming back to HBO.

Tina Fey visited Sesame Street. Who knew that show was still on? (Little kids, I guess.)

For a nostalgia trip, Intensities in Ten Suburbs flashes back to Go.

Slate explores how video game cheaters (it all started with Contra!) have become real life criminals.

Status Ain't Hood reviews the Daft Punk live show, which I really wish I could experience.

Paper Thin Walls has a track-by-track feature/review on No Age's Weirdo Rippers, one of the most intriguing records I've heard this summer.

Apparently yesterday was Vinyl Record Day.

Stylus has an interview with Gregg Gillis of Girl Talk.

Finally, D'Angelo really let himself go!
