Trent Reznor's not a fan of Facebook: Despite scoring the music for, The Social Network, the movie about the social networking giant/most addictive thing in the world, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor thinks Facebook is lame and full of phonies. Wait, doesn't Reznor already hate everything? Or is he really just that big a fan of Joy Division?. [LINK]
Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack pushed back until December 7th: Thanks to a "recent system conflict," which we are pretty sure is French robot for either label issues or that there's gunk in their motherboard, we're going to have to wait a little while longer for Daft Punk's eagerly-anticipated Tron soundtrack to hit stores. With a December 7th release date, forget a white Christmas; multi-colored house music will reign supreme this winter. Sorry, Irving Berlin. [LINK]
A Dummy's Guide to Kanye West's current projects: Oh man, the world of Kanye West can be overwhelming. There's new songs every week and so much talk about Paris fashion week that it's almost impossible to keep track of it all. Worry not, Kanye fans/addicts, this handy-dandy guide will organize every anthemic release and ego-maniacal statement the Louis Vuitton Don has made over the last few months. And trust us, when it rains, it really does pour. [LINK]
Miami Police Department use images of Jay-Z for anti-gang site: It used to be that people had to worry about police violence; now it's all about defamation via Internet trolling. On the Miami Police Department's anti-gang hotline's website, a few images of gangsters and ne'er-do-wells bear a striking resemblance to hip-hop's kingpin, Jay-Z. Sure, it may have been a mistake on the part of the MPD, but we don't think that would ever happen to Yanni. Just sayin'. [LINK]
Iron & Wine announce new album, Kiss Each Other Clean: If you're anything like some of our ex-girlfriends, the melodic alt-folk of Iron & Wine speaks to you (and apparently so do older men). The group, the project of frontman Sam Beam, is readying its first release since 2007's The Shepherd's Dog, which also happens to be its first release for Warner Bros. We'd make another girlfriend comparison about moving on to bigger and better things, but that'd just make us sad. [LINK]
Watch: Eminem's interview on 60 Minutes: If there's anyone in the world that can drag out the harsh truths of the struggle that is Eminem's life, it has to be Anderson Cooper; no, seriously, he can. For the segment on last night's 60 Minutes, the correspondent journeys through Detroit with the MC as they discuss everything from the childhood bullying to the manic note-taking of the man born Marshall Mathers. Also, make sure to note that Em's drinking a Red Bull, which we are sure says all kinds of things about spending a day with Anderson Cooper. [LINK]
