Welcome back to Lunch Break Links. Sorry to leave you hanging yesterday.
Lots of good stuff at AV Club this week, including an interview with the Human Giant guys and the "Random Rules" segment with the Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr.
Also, their Newswire points us to this news that the four major TV networks are down 2.5 million viewers from this time last year, but that probably doesn't account for DVR, iTunes and online streaming.
I just remembered I was going to post a Band of the Day. Well, today let's make it Hugs and Kisses. So weird. So good. And local, to boot.
The Smashing Pumpkins got robbed.
Does John Cooper belong in the College Football Hall of Fame?
The latest in Stylus' series on Diamond records covers Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA.
Lindsay Lohan's mom is a red carpet correspondent now? Weird.
LHB points us to the Toledo Blade's comparison of this summer's music festivals.
Even though I'm not in love with the album, I still adore the video for Feist's "1 2 3 4," so I'm delighted that Pop Candy mentioned listentofeist.com, where they've posted a making-of video.
A Land of the Lost movie from Robert Rodriguez and Will Ferrell? Or Rodriguez doing a live-action Jetsons? I'm intrigued.
And speaking of things with "lost" in them, tonight one of three remaining Lost episodes this season will air. EW has not one, but two features. The first one is the typical Doc Jensen theory fest, and the second is Jensen's interview with producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, in which they discuss the recent decision to cap lost after three more 16-episode seasons.
I'm very excited about tonight. But in the meantime, hopefully I'll get back to you this afternoon with some musical musings. Until then, Namaste!
