by Josh Kimball
*Is American Idol screwing the backup musicians out of money they’ve rightfully earned? Well, those dudes are suing the show. On a semi-related note: I may be the only person in America who is fascinated by Ryan Seacrest.
*R. Kelly was acquitted of all child pornography charges on Friday. Hmmf.
*If you are interested in the mainstream media, you may wish to check out Rolling Stone‘s Bonnaroo 2008 coverage.
*Weezer invites fans to jam with them on their current tour. From the internet celeb viral to the use of manga for marketing to the jam-with-us invite – somebody in the Weezer camp has been paying attention.
*Video: My buddy in the former Soviet Union recorded video of traditional Sukhishvili Georgian Dance. It gets pretty crazy when the swords come out.
*Tim Russert died. Sucks.
