Offa my couch, Larroquette

By DAVID THORPE  |  October 24, 2008

It’s not funny about TRAVIS BARKER, even though he was in BLINK 182 and I really want it to be. He was recently released from the hospital in admirable condition and will likely make a full recovery.

M.I.A. has shed light on recent rumors that she’s pregnant in an offputtingly technical fashion: “I’m creating a baby,” she told Pitchfork. On a personal note: I’m still deciding whether this will affect my plans to marry her. (Barring extraordinary circumstance, the child is not mine.)

That hoary procrastinator NEIL YOUNG has spent the last couple of decades studiously not releasing his Archives Vol. 1 project, as I’ve reported many times before. This time around, he’s putting out a live album from an allegedly legendary 1968 show in Ann Arbor, Michigan . . . oh, and by the way — no Archives till ’09. Furthermore, Reuters reports that, contrary to previous word, the set will not be released on CD but will be consigned to the inaccessible Blu-Bal, er, Blu-Ray format. I do hereby officially redub the project The Arghchives.

Lavish news from hip-hop’s own Ambiguously Gay Duo: CASH MONEY boss BABY gave protégé/make-out buddy LIL WAYNE a briefcase containing $1 million at his birthday soiree. An ice sculpture filled with hundred-dollar bills was also present to cool off the simmering sexual tension.
