Happy Tuesday! I never liked Tuesdays, but I’ll make an exception this morning since Phoenix was nothing short of wonderful last night, playing to a packed house at DAR Constitution Hall. Though upbeat "Rally" didn’t make it on set, they did manage to fit in the ever-so-kinda-depressing "If I Ever Feel Better," so I forgave them. Oh, Thomas Mars, tight pants, plaid, chucks, failed irony–what more could a girl ask for? (I don’t discriminate on account of tight pants.)

Reality stars are in trouble all over the place it seems. Former Rock of Love’s Bret Michaels is still in critical condition after being rushed to the hospital last Thursday after suffering from an excruciating headache. And TV producer, and co-creator of MTV’s Pimp my Ride, is barred from leaving Mexico, while the death of his wife is still under investigation. Well, there's still wrinkly old boozers to keep you entertained.

America’s Got Talent is holding auditions via YouTube. Time to revamp Duck Duck Goose! You could be the next Justin Bieber.

For the love of fuckin' a, Kevin Williamson's Scream 4, 5 and 6 may be in our future. How many times do you have to stab someone before they stop coming back? Even Dawson gave up.

I don’t know what happened to Kelly Clarkson, but Gossip Girl’s in-house 'rocker chick' Taylor Momsen could use some food before she goes Amy Winehouse on us. And looks like Glee may give Britney Spears and Courtney Love some aid.

Southland revived for 10 more episodes! And Keri Russell, starring in the new Fox comedy Wilde Kingdom, will be a recipient of the 5th Annual Mothers Who Make a Difference Award–ah, Felicity’s all grown up, seems like just yesterday we were in hideous over-sized sweaters, caught between Ben and Noel.

Richard A. Clarke and Robert K. Knake's new book warns of future security attacks via cyber space. Facebook down?! Twitter too?! AND Gmail?! There's nothing left.

And for your ‘fuckyeahmashups’ of the day, try out MGMT vs. LCD Soundsystem. Just do it.

Looks like the gloom’s finally lifted, and the sky’s stopped pouting. Do something nice for another human today, even if it hurts.
