*Biggie: These excerpts from Faith Evans’ forthcoming book, which talk about how Tupac briefly (but quickly and efficiently) insinuated himself into her life, are actually a pretty good read.
*Beer: Jessica Simpson has become the spokesperson for Stampede Light Plus beer. Personally, this does nothing at all to diminish my love of beer. People: I am resolute. [buzzfeed]
*Pop music: Mountain Dew has started a singles-only record label, Green Label Sound, that will feature bands such as Cool Kids. You know what’s even better than Mountain Dew? That Red Alert stuff. Or Code Five or whatever the fuck it’s called. [listening post]
*Local: The Bryant Lake Bowl is throwing a block party. The Rock for Democracy block party is set for Saturday, September 13 from 4pm-10pm, and will feature Brass Messengers, Prairie Sons and a surprise headliner. Also: roller girls! [mfr]
*Idol: People who are either insane or are hardcore American Idols fans (I would love to see the Venn diagram of these two groups) can now Sajaya-ize themselves. Of course, that’s a Cardinal sin. But still.
