Today on Twitter: Beth Ditto, Ben Nichols, 'James Brown!'

Posted By on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 5:56 PM


* Took the new Beth Ditto/Simian Mobile Disco EP for a couple spins today. Now we can't stop sweating glitter—strangely, we're beginning to kinda like it. It's streaming at Harder Blogger Faster.

* @gerardmatthews with some great footage of last night's Ben Nichols acoustic show at AR CD & Record Exchange.

* "Whatcha gonna do when you get out of jail?" Tom Tom Club celebrates the 30th anniversary of "Genius of Love" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Check it out here.

* Watch 36 minutes of Quentin Tarantino's first movie, circa 1987, most of which was destroyed in a fire. (via @kottke)

* We've never seen a Czech/Polish movie poster we didn't love. Ogle at few gorgeous vintage Czech and Polish posters for Japanese "kaiju" films at Pink Tentacle. (via @brainpicker.)

* Much-anticipated Johnny Cash "Bootleg Vol. 2, From Memphis to Hollywood" artwork is unbelievable.

* Ditto on the tracklist. Wow/drool.

* BBC4 to air original doc about Arkansas native and rock n' roll trailblazer Sister Rosetta Tharpe this week.

* Warped Tour just got a lot cooler, raspier. Lucero shakes up the annual summer festival's bill.

* Paste Magazine quantifies Levon, Robbie & Co. in a well-thought out list with "The 10 Best Songs by The Band."

* Because tacky sunglasses don't pay for themselves, y'know. : Bono made $750 million by investing in Facebook. (via @SpinnerTweet)

* A taste of what's coming to the Rev Room on 1/26: Watch No Age perform on "David Letterman" here. (via @pitchforkmedia)
