Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane

After launching its own cloud music service, Google plans to open up an online music store of its own, one that The New York Times Media Decoder calls an "MP3 store that would compete with Apple and Amazon." Rumor has it that Google is in negotiations with major music labels to make the service possible, but no one from Google or the labels have officially commented on the matter. Google is expected to launch its store before Apple’s cloud offering, iTunes Match, goes live at the end of October.

After only three aired episodes of its second season, HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a third. Terrence Winter's Prohibition-era drama drew 2.9 million viewers in season one and is averaging 3.2 million in its second. "Following a triumphant first season, I was eager to see what Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese and the rest of their stellar team had in store, and they continue to surpass our highest expectations," said HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo. "The response from the media and our viewers has been extremely gratifying." The show's first season won eight Emmys, including Martin Scorsese's for Outstanding Director for a Drama Series.

Hip-hop media mogul/self-help author Russell Simmons and rapper/narcissist Kanye West showed up at Occupy Wall Street yesterday. The two were mobbed and eventually OkayAfrica put a camera in their faces. Like Don King before a big prize fight, Simmons did all the talking for Yeezy, who just stared into space like a dope and nodded. Watch the girl's facial expression over Yeezy's left shoulder as Simmons says, "[Kanye] wants to give power back to the people." She's all like, "Srsly?"

Stop waiting for a streetcar to pick you up! Get on your fixed-gear and go get yourself a "poop as you go" TOTO Biogas Bike. This Japanese invention runs completely on human waste and the company calls poop the "new coal." TOTO is predominately a toilet maker but thought they'd try their hand at making motorcycles that not only run on poop, but use “residual light imagery to write messages in the air as it zooms by." Not to mention, it “can also play music to entertain spectators.” Finally, the toilet actually talks, a feature with which TOTO has been equipping many of its toilets.

The Simpsons is facing a possible cancelation after negotiations with voice actors hit a standstill. According to The Daily Beast, if the actors don't take a 45 percent pay cut, the show will end after this season. If they do, Fox will still make back-end profits off syndication and lower production costs. If the actors don't take the cut, Fox will still make money off the more than 500 episodes re-airing without having to pay to produce more episodes. The actors currently earn around $8 million each for 22 weeks of studio work.

Broken Social Scene is on indefinite hiatus. Band leader Kevin Drew told The Huffington Post, "This is the healthiest thing we can do. There's no bad blood, no problems, everyone is at peace. We've had a lot of inter-relationships, some have worked, some haven't. But we all loved what we were doing. And I think we we're always fair." Work it out, guys! We love you together.

The Flaming Lips are releasing a 24-hour song on Halloween. According to frontman Wayne Coyne, "it's a song about death and it's a song about fucking and it's a song about life." The Lips will be releasing five limited-edition versions of the track that will be placed on a hard-drive and then inserted into human skulls provided by Oklahoma business, Skulls Unlimited. Coyne said, "There's a place in town that's called Skulls Unlimited that's been here for almost as long as The Flaming Lips have been here, and it sells human skulls." By the way, those skulls have already been sold for $5,000 a piece.
