Speaking of grunge survivors, Pearl Jam is making a documentary with Cameron Crowe.

Ever notice all the funny faces guitarists make while shredding?

Weird: Showtime rejected every single pilot it had in development.

I'm a big fan of 5-10-15-20, Pitchfork's new feature where they ask musicians what music they were into at five year intervals throughout their lives. The latest features Deerhunter's Bradford Cox.

Paste lists the 17 best romantic comedies this decade, which reminds me we're about to see a lot of "best of the decade" lists, which makes me very happy. (What can I say? I love lists!) Also, this feature is from February, but it's new to me.
