  • Researchers attempt to encourage breeding in captive sharks by playing them music. Justin Timberlake turns them on; Britney Spears, not so much. (Towleroad)

  • Courtney Love says crazy stuff on her MySpace page! I know, can you believe it? This time it’s about, er, cupcakes. (Defamer)

  • Idolator offers the first installment of its Top 100 Greatest R&B Songs Ever, complete with videos. Hey look: “Oh Sheila!” (Idolator)

  • I know I just posted a link to an Alan McGee rant, but he’s just so adorably ornery! This week: bands that were over-hyped. (UK Guardian Music Blog)
  • Dear Reader,

    This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
