Bruce Springsteen has a new album coming out with the E Street Band.

•Got a complaint? Join the choir. No, seriously!

And in bad news, legendary jazz drummer Max Roach is dead.

Intensities in Ten Suburbs reviews the new Duran Duran/Timbaland/Justin Timberlake collaboration.

CDs are 25 years old. (That's one more than me.) (via Paper Thin Walls)

The Age has a Dave Eggers interview. (via LHB)

A new Eagles song is up at MySpace. Yes, those Eagles. (via Stereogum)

Lots of TV links, including speculation on the future direction of MTV, after the jump...

A few days after cancelling John From Cincinnati, HBO announced it's giving creator David Milch another new show (but Deadwood movies don't look likely).

MTV is holding a big internal meeting Monday about "What does the M stand for, anyway?" Speculation indicates that the network is getting rid of music all together. (via AV Club)

TV Guide wonders whether TV is pushing the eroticism envelope too far.

A trio of TV links from Pop Candy:

Dunder-Mifflin has a new web site, complete with a press release about Ryan Howard's promotion.

•NBC is putting its fall pilots on demand Sept. 10.

Finally, a TVTattle roundup:

Desperate Housewives got kicked out of its soundstage in Hollywood to make room for The Tonight Show.

•A playwright with a name close to Josh Holloway (Sawyer from Lost) has taken a step to end confusion about who's who: He wrote a play called "Lost: How a Certain TV Mega Hunk Stole My Identity."

The Hills shoots multiple takes of scenes. How "reality" of them.

Hollywood loves Flight of the Conchords. (And why shouldn't they?)
