*Hustle and/or flow: NPR talks to Terrence Howard, who just put out his first album. “My dream was to be a physicist.” I should say that I have always dreamt of being retired.
*Recession: Pandora lays off 14% of its staff.
*Politics: Sarah Palin winking depicted in LEGOs. It is appropriately grotesque!
*Global Financial Meltdown: Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones frolicking for finance. FROLICKING, I TELL YOU.
*Philanthropy: Local music blog Culture Bully is doing a 60-hour blogathon for charity. I don’t have any idea what a blogathon is.
*I saw Diane Keaton at dinner last night.
