With South Park back on the air tonight (10 p.m., Comedy Central), EW counts down 20 of the show's most controversial episodes.

Glad I held off on purchasing tickets for Pavement's NYC reunion shows. Looks like the band is playing other gigs before next September, including May's English edition of the All Tomorrow's Parties fest, which Malkmus and co. will curate.

Pitchfork has an interview with Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze.

And speaking of breakout stars of the 90s, AV Club interviewed Chris Rock.

They also had a hip-hop fan dive deep into the world of Garth Brooks. A good read, though as a former fifth-grade fanboy I'm a bit biased.

Kelly Clarkson's parade of covers on tour continues with The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army."

Heidi Klum will now be known as "Heidi Samuel" after adopting husband Seal's last name.

Speaking of Project Runway stars, Tim Gunn will guest in How I Met Your Mother's 100th episode.

New UK music genre: "mutant funk."

What does everyone think of "On the Ground," the latest Andy Samberg/Lonely Island track from SNL? Musically, kind of lacking, but I dig the absolute absurdity. His face in the hot dog scene is priceless.

And... a second video? Why not? Here's Bon Iver doing "The Wolves, Act I & II" for La Blogotheque.
