Hello friends. So much is happening on the Internet that sometimes it's difficult to keep up—even with The A.V. Club and our sister site, Decider.com. In an effort to catch you up, here are some quick links.
First off, thanks to many commenters who let us know that CNN.com is covering cheeseburger in a can—and you can even see a tiny bit of our coverage in the video. For our original Taste Test, you can click here.
Did you know that Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are doing two shows together this weekend in Chicago as part of the Just For Laughs Festival? They are. Not only that, they're at the tiny Lakeshore Theater. (Of course they sold out immediately.) Over at Decider Chicago, we've got an interview with the two of 'em (until David bails).
Elsewhere on Decider:
— An interview with Tim and Lars of Rancid.
— An interview with Emily Haines of Metric.
— A recap of Phoenix's Chicago show.
— A recap of Grizzly Bear's Austin show.
— An interview with Adam Franklin of Swervedriver.
— In search of Milwaukee's best strip-club buffet.
— Kevin Smith answering reader questions.
— A recap of PJ Harvey playing the zoo in Minneapolis.
— An interview with Fugazi's Joe Lally.
And while you're messing around, have you visited our contests page lately? It's very unassuming down there at the bottom of the page, but we just put up a contest to win the deluxe edition of the new Pixies box set, so get on over.
I'll leave you with a trailer for a movie that I just added to our office Netflix queue. It looks so much better than Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus, and it's got a Baldwin brother.
