Pitchfork made locals Times New Viking its lead review and designated the new Rip It Off as "Best New Music."

The Oscar nods are out. So are the Razzie nods.

I love Slate's correspondence pieces where they get a few sharp writers to discuss pop culture via e-mail. Especially when they're about The Wire. They're being too hard on the newsroom plot, though they raise a good point about its lack of regard for the Web.

This Oliver Stone movie about George Bush sounds like it won't exactly be a skewering.

Sean Combs is changing his rap name again.

Scott Weiland has gone missing.

I try to stay away from Amy Winehouse drug stories, but this video is sorta insane.

The big surprise in the full Coachella lineup was Roger Waters doing Dark Side of the Moon. Lame! (And I had no idea Jack Johnson was so huge.)

Meanwhile, "Coachella East" will be known as All Points West, but none of the lineup has been announced yet.
