*What are the worst song lyrics of 2007? A sample from Big and Rich: “I see your momma and the candles and tears and roses.” Uh boy. [neatorama]

*Who had the most popular album of the year? Daughtry. WHAT? Additionally, Rolling Stone‘s top 100 songs of the year. #3 = Umbrella. [pop candy]

*Hannah Montana has added fourteen dates to her tour. Whew.

*T-mobile is blocking Twitter. Ugh.

*The A.V. Club goes after the worst band names of 2007. Some good ones (Butt Stomach, Those Fucking Unicorns, Gay Witch Abortion), but my all-time entry in the category holds firm: The Sweatpant Boners.

*Job watch: Cuts at Geffen Records. 60 people cut at Universal Music.

*Diablo Cody will start writing a column for Entertainment Weekly. [vulture]

*Vintage ear trumpets. What’s happened to the ear trumpet, anyway?
