The Roots’ drummer Ahmir Thompson (?uestlove) says the goup's latest album, undun, is finished and should be out Dec. 6. "We actually completed [the album] at five [o'clock] this morning, so it's officially done,” Thompson said. "It's essentially a biographical narrative about Redford Stephens. Stephens [is] a composite of four or five people that we've known over the past few years from Philadelphia." FX has ordered up 10 episodes of Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom Anger Management, a spin-off of the Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler film. “We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play,” said FX president John Landgraf. “Two And A Half Men has been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well.”

Did you love The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Good, because they’re making an American adaptation with Daniel Craig! Southern California authorities rescued a man stuck up to his chest inside a tree trunk. It took about 90 minutes for firefighters to free the man, and at this point it is unclear whether he climbed into the tree or sprouted from it like a wood imp. So, the Black Keys released their first single from El Camino. It’s called “Lonely Boy” and it’s pretty gosh dern good. You can peep it here.

Russian ballroom dance champion Maksim Chmerkovskiy completely lost his shit on Dancing with the Stars judges last night after only earning himself 20 out of 30 points for his performance with Hope Solo. Judge Len Goodman got the brunt of it after railing Solo. "Hope, I've never lost faith in you," Len said, after the dance to "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent. "I always feel like there is so much there, and for some reason it hasn't come out. This is your worst dance of the season in my opinion." "I've been in this business for 50 years," Chmerkovskiy sharply retorted: "Then maybe it's time to go!" Goodman and Chmerkovskiy went back and forth before Chmerkovskiy told host Brooke Charvet, "With all due respect, this is my show. I help make it what it is."

Paranormal Activity 3  was top dog at the box office this weekend, raking in an estimated $54 million and besting Paranormal Activity 2’s $40.7 million opening. Director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) told 5Live that she’s working on a new sci-fi film “more or less by Moby Dick.” But in space. "So we’re creating a whole new world, and a new alien. A very psychological piece, mainly taking place in the ship, a bit like Das Boot, so it’s quite claustrophobic.”

A few months after saying they’ll never get back together, the members of Oasis are already talking about a reunion for the 20th anniversary of the release of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory. "In 2015, if we can put our shit aside, we can tour and play the album in its entirety for the 20th anniversary," Liam Gallagher told Rolling Stone. "I'd be up for that, if it's on our terms. There's got to be two-way respect." Back in August, Noel said maybe they maybe rushed their breaking up but the possibility of a reunion was impossible. "We could maybe have all gone off and done other things for a few years," he said. "In my own head the 2015, 20-year anniversary of Morning Glory is looming and we could have maybe come back, made a new album and played that album in its entirety and gone and been the greatest thing ever, but there you go.”

Method Man recently told Complex that the RZA and the GZA wrote most of Ol’ Dirty Bastard's first LP. On account of Dirty working too slowly, the RZA and GZA took matters into their own hands by taking old rhymes and having Dirty rap them. Method Man said:“The majority of the verses on that album are old RZA rhymes and GZA rhymes. ‘Approach the school, 9:30, you’re late,’ that’s RZA’s shit, I heard that shit when I was 14 years old. ODB wrote ‘Brooklyn Zoo’ though. I could go through the discography I could tell you which ones he wrote. Like ‘Dog Shit’ on Wu-Tang Forever? The fucking, ‘Calling me a dog/But leave a dog alone/Because nothing can stop me from burying my bones,’ I wrote that when I was 15 years old.” You can read the entire interview here.

According to TMZ, Shia LaBeouf last week was involved in a drunken altercation in a Vancouver bar. While no one is sure what sparked the incident, LaBeouf and another man ended up brawling on the sidewalk. There is video footage of a shirtless man pummeling the Transformers star, presumably for being in Transformers. LaBeouf’s friends had to intervene and then restrain LaBeouf.

Harold Camping, oracle/crazy person, admits he was wrong when he said the world was to end on May 21, 2011 (obviously). But it’s just that his calculations were off. The world is going to end Oct. 21, according to Camping who is still recovering from a stroke he suffered in June. "There will be no pain suffered by anyone because of their rebellion against God," Camping says, because "He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. The end is going to come very, very quietly."
