Everyone's favorite taciturn bandleader is returning to the screen in "Pound for Pound," a boxing drama adapted from an FX Toole ("Million Dollar Baby") novel.  Thornton will play a depressed retired boxer who's life somehow intersects with an up-and-coming teenage Latino fighter. Sounds fresh. [Hollywood Reporter]

Pitchfork's wrapped up its countdown of the top 500 songs of the decade. [Pitchfork]

The Onion AV Club's latest Gateways to Geekery offers a nice introduction to Afro-Pop. [AV Club]

An iPhone app you need: Sonar ruler. [Gizmodo]
