*Tours: Michael Jackson says he will not be taking part in a Jackson Five reunion tour. Note how I refrained from calling him “noseless pop star Michael Jackson.”
*YouTube: The New Yorker‘s Sasha Frere-Jones on Gorillaz on YouTube. Watch Gorillaz’ “Monkey Bee.” And be terrified.
*Movies: More New Yorker linkage, but I can’t help but love Anthony Lane’s turns of phrase. Of High School Musical‘s Zac Efron he writes, “Troy is still at East High, with his wistful determination and his killer eyebrows, like a younger and more huggable Leonid Brezhnev.”
*Festivals: The Wall Street Journal covers CMJ. I don’t really know what the article says, but at least there’s a short, ill-functioning slideshow.
*Time: Fall back.
