More movie chatter... According to NME
, Jack White is set to portray Elvis in an upcoming parody of of "Walk the Line." The British mag reports: "The film, entitled 'Walk Hard', focuses on the travails of an Orbison-cum-Cash style rockabilly singer called Dewey Cox, who will be played by John C. Reilly... Following internet rumours White would take the role, his spokesperson confirmed to NME.COM that this was now definitely slated to happen. The parody was written by Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow, and the cast so far also includes Kirsten Wiig, Jenna Fischer and David Koechner."
Jenna Fischer and Jack White!! We have a crush on that humble Dunder-Mifflin secretary from The Office
and would totally make a joke involving Fischer and The White Stripes' new album title, Icky Thump
, if it weren't utterly inappropriate.
Don't believe everything you read, but The New York Daily news
seems to think that Radiohead may be signing to Starbucks' new record label, Hear Music. Paul McCartney will be the first artist to release a record with the label, having signed a deal with Starbucks this past week
. But... c'mon, Radiohead?? What's a next, a new green tea concoction called "Pablo Honey?"
Last but not least, here's an MP3 goody for all you audiophiles. Thanks to the Live Music Blog
