"THE KILLERS singer BRANDON FLOWERS believes RADIOHEAD frontman THOM YORKE is wasting his talent as a songwriter. The JENNY WAS A FRIEND OF MINE star wishes Yorke would stop writing experimental rock and return to the style of radio-friendly 1990s hits such as CREEP and KARMA POLICE. "
I bet he was one of the 20 people at the Greek yelling for RH to play Creep (to which Thom responded, "Stop yelling for Creep you monkeys!"). And is it me, or does he look a lot like Ross "the gay intern" from Jay Leno?
Regardless...I like the jackass's music...

Ran the 5 mile (not 5K) Nike Run/Hit/Remix today at the LA Coliseum. Despite learning YESTERDAY that it was a 5 mile run and not a 5K (3.1 mile run), I still had a grand time. Can't beat listening to some of the greatest bands of the 90's performing every mile all while running around the ghetto that is the USC community with 10,000 other sweaty people. Plus we all got to wear matching shirts...
Debbie Gibson (at the Starting Line) *good way to get us to run away fast
Young MC (Mile 1)
Vanilla Ice (Mile 2) *best peformer of the morning - go Robbie Van Winkle
Coolio (Mile 3) *nobody stopped to watch him...poor Coolio
Digital Underground (Mile 4)

I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS: Album news from Damien Rice:
"the new one will be called '9,' and will come out in November in Ireland on Rice's own Heffa label. "I'm pretty excited to hear that as I'm a big fan of the Damien Rice.
