1. Iconic Obama Poster/Andre the Giant "Obey" artist Shepard Fairey was recently arrested for vandalism. Seeing that the whole "Obey" phenomenon wasn't exactly due to commissioned art, it's good the Mr. Fairey is still true to his roots.
2. This past week, Olympic hero Michael Phelps apologized like an awkward high school freshman after being caught smoking pot on a photo. That really doesn't help Phelps out with breaking free from the awkward high school freshman persona that he has when he's out of the pool. I say he should either smoke more pot or drink more often. (Kids, do not try this at home.) I mean, he already lost most of his endorsements. It's time for Phelps to turn into Dennis Rodman.
3. I wish someone could sync Christian Bale's douche-y tirade with Frank Grimes' nervous breakdown/electrocution from The Simpsons. Well, I wish someone did that before Bale apologized on the radio.
4. Does anyone know how to rip the pregap ("Track 0") from an audio CD? Common cynical wisdom says that hidden tracks at the end of albums are often not worth listening to, so what does that tell us about super-cryptic Easter egg tracks before the first track?
Okay, that's all I have for today.
