Lordi Wins Eurovision Song Contest, plus Bruce Willis and the Allmans, Wyclef TV, Zip-a-dee-doo-Stephin-Merritt, Modest Mouse Back

  • Lordi won the Eurovision Song Contest for Finland. If that band gets played on the radio in their home country, then I say, "To the Finland station!" (I've been waiting to use that one.)
  • Bruce Willis is going to appear with the Allman Brothers on the upcoming tour. Welcome to the world of Advancement, Mr. Allman.
  • The TV series "loosely based" on Wyclef Jean's life is in the works. The script is pretty good, except for the recurring character who keeps saying, "One time. Two times."
  • Hear now: A Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah-A-Thon with Guest DJ Stephin Merritt. Hey, I've been spelling his name wrong. Probably because the spelling is Overt (even if his parents spelled it that way).
  • Modest Mouse are returning from their layoff. That's good to hear. I know how hard it is to get laid off. I hope they got a good severance package.
