Entertainment Trivial Links
Compiled by Nathan Mattise
- My immediate thought was the PMEA multi-percussion audition was far more difficult my senior year. That’s why I’ll be one of the assumed millions who will be auditioning for the YouTube symphony when I’ve got winter break at work.
- It’s been a great month in music history because: A) NME points out it’s the 10th Anniversary of The Strokes B) It’s the third-year these guys have promoted covers of Wham!’s “Last Christmas” C) a Creed reunion tour is in the works.
- USA Today has been offerring helpful gift hints everyday this week and the best two so far come from both the paper (“Make Your Own Muppet Whatnot“) and their flagship blog (ugly holiday sweater retail).
- I did finally find a job but I’m sure if that’ll stop me from applying to the previously reported ridiculous opportunity: Weinermobile driver.
- Finally, December means it’s time to debate Best-Of’s for 2008. Here’s the go-to site to keep track of it all.
