* JEFF the Brotherhood frontman and Infinity Cat mogul Jake Orrall recently sat down for an interview with Amp Magazine's Tony Shrum. Fresh off a gig at Boston's Great Scott, Orrall spoke on a broad range of topics, from In Utero v. Bleach to how icky Diarrhea Planet's name is, JEFF's role as Insane Clown Posse's backing band on the ICP/TMR single, the term "party rock" and more. Drummer Jamin Orrall's name is misspelled as "Jammin," but I suppose that's at least kind of an awesome misspelling.

* Hey college babies, any of you looking for an internship for next semester? The folks at the legendary Ryman Auditorium recently mentioned that they're now seeking applicants for their unpaid internship position. Sure, there are some intern-y, bottom-rung responsibilities in there (making copies and coffee, for instance), but you'll also get to check out their extensive Hatch Show Print library and be a part of their special media events. I can't think of a better place for young, music-minded Nashvillians to intern. Well, except for here at Scene HQ, but we're not taking applications just yet. The Ryman tweeted that they'll begin interviews next week, so that's where the "interview-y" bit of this bit comes in. I like themes!

* Taylor "Babygirl Tay-Tay" Swift was recently featured in a 60 Minutes Overtime segment in which she spoke to Lesley Stahl about "leading a normal life," not having a boyfriend and wanting to eventually have, like, "10 kids ... like, an army of them." Stahl also apparently was the subject of a post-interview interview about her interview with Swift, in which she talked about talking to Swift. So ... meta points there. Also, Stahl brought up the whole "Kon-yuhwest" VMA thing, and Babygirl shut her down. Zing.

And in other bits and baubles: If you didn't get enough Wanda Jackson talk from The Spin's review of her show Saturday night, local fashion blog Under the Guise has some candid shots of and words on the show. Also, if you don't follow us on Twitter (which you should), you probably missed this tweet. Thus, you might want to know that Greek keyboard wizard Yanni will play TPAC on May 12, and former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter (Backstreet's back! All right.) will play Cannery Ballroom on Jan. 30. I'm only saying that you might want to know that.
