From the Department of Two Seemingly Unrelated News Items: If you're a Top 40 enthusiast and find yourself asking, "Where is the love?" on the upcoming Valentine's Day weekend, then I have an idea where you can hook up with other singles of your disposition. As if the two-hour act of musical terrorism the Black Eyed Peas are slated to unleash upon a thousands-strong congregation of Music City masochists at the Sommet Center Feb. 12 isn't enough, head Pea Will.I.Am will appear at Mai for an after-show DJ set. It has yet to be announced whether dude -- whose name is annoyingly impossible to abbreviate -- will appear in the flesh or as a hologram. Will.I.Am will get retarded behind the turntables -- Coach and DJ Rod will also perform. Tickets are available here if you're interested in subjecting yourself to such a happening.
If you're not a Black Eyed Peas fan (i.e. you're a reader), then it will crush your spirits to know that legendary writer J.D. Salinger passed away yesterday at the tender age of 91. Just like the upcoming Will.I.Am appearance, I will miss him.
