///The Flaming Lips are contenders in the battle for the Official State of Oklahoma Rock Song. Their song "Do You Realize" is up against "Oklahoma" by The Call, "Let's Have a Party" by Wanda Jackson and "Move Along" by the All-American Rejects among others (including Elvis, JJ Cale and Three Dog Night). You can vote for your fave here. You don't even have to be an Okie.
///Mike Skinner, better known as The Streets, plans on incorporating a large scale audience participation part of his show in which the fans say hello to each other and introduce themselves. He also plans on incorporating a Moses-esque feat in which he parts the crowd in half, runs down the middle and surfs back up to the stage.
///Everyone's favorite Kanye West has rereleased a new version of his song "Love Lockdown" less than a day after announcing on his blog that he was doing it. Furthermore, I just scrolled through his blog for Ss and Gs and he simply says "Beautiful" in response to the latest Dr. Dog video for their song "The Ark." Severed heads are totally "FRESH!!!" (It is a cool video though)
