Friday distractionfest

Here's a round-up of things you may have missed, overlooked or ignored from the last week. It's almost as if this is a real blog, or something.

:: Gasp! Bruce Wayne is dead. Who will be the new Batman??

:: Actually, if this Rolling Stone photoshoot is anything to go by, Britney's already got her audition tape ready. Someone call Chris Nolan!

:: Leona Lewis goes all Blair Witch in the video for Run.

:: Remember the (literal) cliff-hanger from the end of the Italian Job? Well, here's Michael Caine to explain what happened next.

:: Here's what happened when I telephoned former X Factor contestants Same Difference. Sarah said something about pushing people down the stairs when she was in the X Factor house, but the recording mysteriously cut out at that point when I played it back. Spooky.

:: US 3G network Sprint has put together a webpage full of widgets telling you everything that is happening right now - from the number of babies being born, to your share of debt and the number of emails being sent worldwide. But the best bit is this:

:: Oooh, oooh, oooh! A Camp, the side project of Cardigans' singer Nina Persson, have a new single in the Swedish charts. It's called Stronger Than Jesus and it's almost as good as their awesome country-tinged ballad, I Can Buy You, which is a permanent fixture in the Discopop Directory all-time Top Ten. You can stream it here. The album, Colonia is out in February, fact fans.

:: "Reviewing Chinese Democracy is not like reviewing music. It's more like reviewing a unicorn. Should I primarily be blown away that it exists at all? Am I supposed to compare it to conventional horses? To a rhinoceros?" The most entertaining 1,000 words you will read about the new Guns N' Roses' album.

:: In case you missed it, here's Nicole Kidman's achingly awkward interview on David Letterman's US Chat Show on Tuesday. It's hard to decide whose fault it was (lots of the questions only elicited "yes" or "no" answers), but one thing's for sure: Kidman would have looked furious if her paralysed face was capable of expressing emtion.

:: Sad news: Annie has left Island Records, which means we'll never get to hear her touched-by-genius Don't Stop album.

:: And, finally, a new internet "craze" to keep us entertained for three (maybe four) minutes - static non-powered objects with faces. EG A bin

Have a super-dooper weekend!
