The ever-boastful Kanye West has identified himself with some fairly huge personalities: Michelangelo, Picasso, fashion designer Alexander McQueen, filmmaker James Cameron and, uh, the people who built the Egyptian pyramids (and that was all spouted during one interview!). But said he sympathized with former president George W. Bush!!  

The Walkman, Tea Party and Hilter

Sony announced its last Walkmans (Walkmen?) are in stores now and when they’re gone, they’ll make no more. (The Walkman, for those under 35, was the now-cumbersome-seeming forefather of the iPod, only a couple pounds heavier and about the size of a small brick.) The biggest question raised by the announcement? “Sony was still making Walkmans?!”  

A Simmons Tizzy, The Black Eyed Keys, Willy O

You start a kick-ass Blues/Rock duo, work hard building a “cult” following and become commercially successful and make music so amazing even MTV can’t ignore it. The video is so great, it wins a "Breakthrough Video" VMA> So, The Black Keys, nothing can kill the high you’re on, right? Well, nothing except finally receiving your award, only to find that the name is, ahem, “misspelled” as “The Black Eyed Peas.”

Those prankster Brits are scheming to “fix” the No. 1 UK single at Christmastime once again. Last year, an online campaign allowed Rage Against the Machine’s 1992 track “Killing in the Name” to win. This year's John Cage's "4'33'" is in the running. The song is 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence.

The Tom Tom Club, Phantogram, Elf Power and A Place to Bury Stranger rode into to town and shared the MPMF spotlight with local favorites The Sundresses, Pomegranates, Shiny & the Spoon and Culture Queer.
