Urb posted an interview with Columbus rapper Envelope.

Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio did a Neil Young cover for the soundtrack of the new movie Rachel Getting Married (the one with Anne Hathway), in which he also stars. He has been involved with film before, but with all the Oscar attention Hathaway is getting, this is certainly Adebimpe's biggest role to date.

WTF? This one is a little less expected: Tokyo Police Club will act and perform a song in an upcoming episode of Desperate Housewives.

NBC is opening The Dunder-Mifflin Store in Scranton.

One of Apple's co-founders thinks the iPod is dying. (I know mine died.)

With The Happening dropping on DVD, EW remembers 22 films with twist endings (in a format that allows you not to discover the twist if you wish to remain spoiler-free).

The night after performing in Columbus, My Morning Jacket's Jim James accidentally stepped off the stage in Iowa City and was hurt badly enough to merit a trip to the hospital. Get well soon, bud.

Fox is remaking Absolutely Fabulous.

AV Club always has the best interviews, I tell ya. Today they have Patton Oswalt and The Streets' Mike Skinner.

It's too bad The Riches won't be back for a third season. My Boys, however, will return.

When she's not starring in 30 Rock or playing Sarah Palin, Tina Fey apparently will be writing a book.

I feel like I have posted a lot of Deerhoof videos lately, and why not? They rule. Here is their new clip for "Chandelier Searchlight." An MP3 of this song is available here for your downloading pleasure. And if you follow the jump, I'll show you the new Atmosphere video for "You." Slug away!
