|She Wants Revenge Week: First, Love|
First, Love - I hadn't made a hip hop track for a while and was fiending to. This track started off just being something for me to get my head in a different place, but once I added the piano to it, it became very clear to us that this had potential to be the opening track for the album, which is exactly what it became.

|Hawthorne Heights Member Dies|
Today is probably the worst day ever. Its with our deepest regrets that we have to write this. Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night. We found out this afternoon before sound-check. We've spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible.
At this time we're not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal.- more on this story
|Fall Out Boy Denies Sex Tape|
In a statement on Fall Out Boy's website he wrote: "Just wanted to put the word out on the streets/the internet. There is no Pete Wentz sex tape in existence. About a year and a half ago I took part in an indie gore/horror short film as a favour to my friend Nathan - called goodnight moon.
Either way I'm not into being an actor or having a sex tape either sooooooooo (sic), hopefully u can deal with it."- watch footage from the scene
|RHCP Hit By Fire|
"So far 4,650 acres burned in the fire which has been determined to have been caused by humans. Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Rick Dominguez says that the fire broke out Saturday morning along a dirt road off a paved highway, and that investigators are still deciding if it was started intentionally," according to Salem-News.com.
The LA Times report: Michael Balzary, a.k.a. Flea, had purchased a home for more than $10 million in Malibu last year, but the house that burned was another he owned in the hills west of Corral Canyon. That French country-style home is listed for sale for $4.8 million on the website of real estate firm Pritchett-Rapf & Associates.- more on this story

|Beatle Vs Jacko|
But MCCartney eventually realised he was financially sound so let go of his grudge against Jackson. He says, "(Michael Jackson) was like a family friend. Bite to eat, hang out and all of that. We fell out once he got Northern Songs.
"I put it to him and said, 'Look you are now historically placed to really give the Lennon/MCCartney writing duo their just desserts. They've been working for this company 30 years, they've never had a rise.' "I must have put it to him about three times. And I just never heard back.
|My Bloody Valentine To Self Release Album Digitally|
Their manager Vinita Joshi told Billboard: "At the moment, all I can say is that Kevin (Shields) is getting the band back together and they will go into the studio next month to work on the new record.
"The plan is that they will release the album themselves via the Internet, but there will also probably be a vinyl release." However, she added that MBV are unlikely to follow Radio head's 'pay what you like' stance for the download.- more on this story
