Birds, Angry — Because there’s nothing like striking while the iron is hot, Rovio entertainment has announced that an Angry Birds movie will reach theaters in the summer of 2016. The animated film will be much like the iPad and iPhone favorite app in that it will both feature birds fighting pigs and that you will get bored after twenty minutes and decide to go see a different movie instead.

Brubeck, Dave — This happened over the weekend, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention last week’s passing of jazz pioneer Dave Brubeck — a personal favorite of this writer and, I’m sure, the doorway to jazz for many others like myself. Take Five will live in infamy, and should be a staple in any music library. You’ll live on, Mr. Brubeck.

Ke$ha — The “Die Young” singer, who has been promoting and talking nonstop about her new album since what seems like two years ago, debuted the record to paltry sales, only selling 85,000 copies of Warrior and failing to break the Billboard top five against old albums like Taylor Swift’s Red and Wiz Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. Ke$ha has told press in the past that she “writes about her life in her music” and that “my music is a representation of my life and vice versa.” We hear you, Ke$ha and our unified response this week has been that obviously we care very little about either.
