If Johnny Marr’s Car Kills the Both of Us: Having played guitar for The Smiths, Modest Mouse, and The Cribs does not exempt one from a speeding ticket.

Can we assume that heaven knows he’s miserable now?

Vanilla on the Potomac: Arts Post says some boilerplate, expected stuff about Barack Obama‘s appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night, which we all know are the worst. “Even with silly stuff, the president indicated he doesn’t like the fishbowl of public life. He talked about expressing himself. ‘That’s why we dance, even if, as Michelle says, I look silly doing it. It is one of the downsides of being President: Your dance moves end up on YouTube,’ said Obama….The audience, according to the official transcript, laughed knowingly.” Derp, derp.

This Should Be Funnier: Wiz Khalifa talks to Click Track about life and stuff. He’s in a forthcoming movie with Snoop Dogg (Mac & Devin Go to High School), and says this, about that:

And now you both are in [fictional] high school together.

It definitely felt natural. I’ve always kind of seen myself in that position. [The movie is] about me coming out of my shell. I’m like not really a nerd, but I’m a smart guy who’s never walked on the wild side. And all Snoop does is walk on the wild side.”
