The FBI spent a year figuring out that Trent Reznor was, in fact, alive. Thanks for the gift "Hard Copy."

The "reporters" at Hard Copy weren't nearly as entertained by the mystery surrounding footage from the "Down In It" video that literally floated away. This would be the top story on Fox, and probably every other cable news channel, for at least a week if it happened now. I don't blame Trent for laughing at them. Seriously, it's funny and a little sad.

I don't know if "Fun Time with Travis" is going to sell any copies but Tom Morello is bad ass on here.

That's got to be his best solo in years! To be fair, RZA and Raekwon are pretty bad ass on here too.

This comes from the Travis Barker solo album, Give The Drummer Some, due out in February on Interscope.

The Green Lantern trailer reminds me of "Spawn": I wanted it to be really awesome but it, you know, wasn't.

"There's, um, water in the tap."

This looks like it could be much better than "Spawn" based on star power alone - Ryan Reynolds, Peter Sarsgaard, Blake Lively - but that doesn't mean anything. Green Lantern is a classic hero with an easy story. Cheap CGI could be the death of this, but here's to hoping the potential plays out in a good way...

Best early Chanukah gift ever!

Get In The Van: I want to make fun of hipsters with Rollins and an Iranian refugee too.

Rollins sounds like kind of a dick when he jumps to the "trust-fund kid" thing. Still cool though.

Globe: Kanye's wrong, George W. Bush loves black people

For the record, I didn't actually read the article. Unlike the National Enquirer, Globe doesn't check it's sources - so it doesn't matter what the article says.

The Mooney Suzuki - "Do It"

Do It by The Mooney Suzuki

The Mooney Suzuki - Do It.mp3 (3657 KB)

I love the sound of rock and roll in the morning. Thankfully, the best thing to come from watching six hours of election coverage last night is that I saw a commercial from SAP. The commercial itself is, you know, a commercial. SAP means nothing to me. But that soundtrack. Oh, the soundtrack.

The Mooney Suzuki, at least until they signed a major label deal and seemingly calmed down, were an ass-kicking quartet from New York City. They were the American version of The Hives, but with better solos. The idea, as they put it, was to rock "the fuck" out.

If you need more - and believe me, you NEED more - download People Get Ready (which includes "Do It") or the world-beating Electric Sweat.

CNN had a lot of interesting ways to explain data last night.

While MSNBC was playing comic foil and Fox was playing to its base, the serious news network showed off all sorts of graphics and methods of boiling down crazy amounts of data from Twitter, "raw exit poll data" and other places.

The 3D graphics may look crazy, but amid the thousands of touch screens that were visible all night and the huge amount of information the talking heads were using, CNN hit their target of information overload. At least it looked pretty!

If the Beatles never stopped doing acid, they might make this insane Mini Mansions video. Well, maybe not.

Mini Mansions is Queens of the Stone bassist Michael Shuman's other band. Grab their self-titled, debut album here.

Chanukah is only a month away...

And we got the hottest bush!

A Perfect Circle does "Weak and Powerless" on Jimmy Kimmel. It would have been better if it was a new song.

Of course, it'd be a lot better if their tour was leaving the west coast. At least the performance was killer.
