Last week before Labour Day weekend.  Make it count.

  1. The unintended musical consequences of banning grain alcohol in Maryland. (Thanks to John for this one.)
  2. Suge Knight got shot,  a snake bites a dancer and Iggy Azalea fell off the stage. Could the MTV MVAs get any weirder?
  3. U2 shot a video in Dublin this weekend. An album must be coming.
  4. This is goofy: pop songs re-imagined as Shakespearean sonnets.
  5. Moose dies while on tour.
  6. Jack White may have sprained his ankle, but he’s not grumpy anymore.
