Morning, readers.

*The Baby-Sitters Club book series releases a prequel after ten years of inactivity. The original books will also be re-released with updated storylines to match modern times. What’s that sound? Oh, just my childhood calling.

*Slash releases a solo album. In true Slash fashion, the disc includes a bevy of guest singers, featuring everyone from Iggy Pop(!) to Fergie(?).

*Wait, Tracy Morgan has normal human feelings? The comedian opened up on Oprah about how much Tina Fey means to him. Too sweet, but I generally prefer my Tracy drunk on morning news shows and calling himself crazier than a box of rocks.

*In the least surprising news ever, Gwyneth Paltrow tells Vogue she has a mean side. (But she seemed so nice!)

*Scrabble changes the rules of their game, now allowing proper nouns. Finally, Yasmine Bleeth has a reason for her name to be in the public eye again.

*J.K. Rowling says she hasn’t ruled out writing another book. Don’t throw out the wands and capes just yet, guys.

*Somebody on YouTube turns Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog into a faux-Nintendo game. I’d make fun of them, but I’m too entertained.
