MADE FOR TV West, with friend
• Jesus walks, Kanye negotiates: The Hollywood Reporter reports that preppy rap mogul Kanye West is in talks with HBO to star in a new series about the "crazy, hectic life of the Grammy-winning artist." The executive producer/director of the show, Larry Charles, did Curb Your Enthusiasm and directed Borat.
• Se-ba-do-over: Lo-fi Masshole band Sebadoh is back on tour after a 14 years hiatus, with original members Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein, and Eric Gaffney. Better hurry now and get tickets before you have to prostitute yourself.
• Speaking of prostituting yourself: Enjoy selling your body? You can always join the hordes of desperate youth and bloodthirsty babes auctioning off their dignity for tickets to the majorly sold-out Arcade Fire shows in NYC in Feb. Caution: reading these will raise your-self esteem.
• Cut your wrists, Europe!: After watching last years Eurovision Song Contest, which is like American Idol but way bigger and with original songs and the whole EU competing, Morrissey remarked to the BBC that he could write a song that would win it for the UK in 2007. Now he's actually doing it.
