– The new TV on the Radio album Dear Science leaked late last week and I pretty much agree with Vulture’s assessment that it’s pretty great

– A kickass live performance of “The Rat” by The Walkmen from Juan’s Basement

– Fox Searchlight just bought Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, which is starting to get a lot of buzz

– Harold Ramis confirmed there is going to be Ghostbusters 3 and that Judd Apatow will co-produce
