I don’t really have all that much to say today. Check back tommorrow or something.

     Jon Brion – producer extraordinaire (Fiona Apple, Magnolia Score, etc.) – has put out a solo album. I’ll probably end up buying it.

     In a tangentially related topic – I saw Fiona Apple’s video for her cover of the Beatles’ “Across the Universe,” and John C. Reilly is in it for a split second. That brings the known John C. Reilly music video appearances tally up to two: “Across the Universe” and the John Spencer Blues Explosion video from the Matador 10 compilation (I forget what it’s called). Also of note is that he is listed as playing ‘Happy Jack’ in Scorsese’s forthcoming “Gangs of New York.”

     Axl Rose made a triumphant return over the last few months. Unfortunately, he chose to do so shirtless. [thanks Mustafa]
