Cred Sheet

Cinematic Masterwork

David Cross playing Allen Ginsberg in the imminent Bob Dylan flick I’m Not There.

Somehow making the Beats seem even more annoying.


Album Of The Year This Week

Wheat’s Every Day I Said a Prayer for Kathy and Made a One Inch Square.

Mumbling, pastoral, gloriously half-assed Americana pop perfect for abrupt temperature drops and people who think A Ghost Is Born is the best Wilco record.


Inspired Lyricism

Rilo Kiley rhyming “atheist” with “pissed.”

Totally something Fleetwood Mac would’ve done.


Heated Internet Feuds

Stars frontman Torq Campbell flips out over mediocre Pitchfork review,rechristens reviewer “Ryan Numballs,” rants angrily on MySpace page.

Totally something Fleetwood Mac would’ve done.


Sporting Trifles

Lobbying Yahoo Fantasy Football for a longer team-name character limit so “Brady Quinn, Medicine Woman” fits.

Most probably futile.


Rock-Critic Effluvia

Stylusmagazine.com’s splendid recent torrent of freestyle coverage.

Anything to remind the masses of “Point of No Return.”


Triumph

Unfairly spurned last year, New York City’s own William Ocean prevails in the 2007 U.S. Air Guitar Championships.

The key evidently was to do a somersault and then crush two cans of beer with your back.


Woe

Voice guru Tom Breihan’s face after realizing he missed that Madison Square Garden show where T.I., Kanye West, 50 Cent, Timbaland, Pitbull, Barack Obama, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Batman, and Thomas Pynchon all jumped onstage together.

This too shall pass, Tom.
