Thursday Tidbits

For all you fans of Weekend, tomorrow's section will be super-sized. But unlike those Extra-Value Meals at McDonald's, this super-sizing is a good thing. While it usually weighs in at an average 32 pages, this week's section is an obese 44 pages. So get thee to the newsstand tomorrow and read a whole lot of me and entertainment coverage.

Because of this, my blog wasn't updated yesterday. Sorry. Here's a bit of news, though:

Michelle Branch has a stalker. Wouldn't you think someone would have already moved on to stalking someone popular? I mean, maybe five years ago, but stalking Michelle Branch these days sounds so sad.

This story is just ridiculous. Don't people ever learn? I wonder if the kid is as annoying as her dad was on TV.

Modest Mouse sold 129,000 CDs last week, making it the No. 1 album on Billboard. So in the past two months, we've had The Shins and Arcade Fire hit No. 2, and The Mouse get to the top. 2007 is already shaping up as a banner year for indie rock.

And speaking of Billboard, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers' new disc, "No More Beautiful World," hit No. 185 on the Billboard chart, and No. 8 on the Internet Sales chart. For a disc with absolutely no hype, that's amazing. And it's an amazing disc. Let's toast to Roger, above.

Lastly, if you care to see the Jennifer Aniston-Courtney Cox kiss, go here. I'm not sure what all the hype was about, though. It's a bummer, dude.

That's it. I'm done.

Oh yeah, let's make fun of the Aussie kid with the dead father... Classy!
