...For The Ride Home: World Cup official is gone, the official video for Ron Artest's new single and The National

Found time to watch this over the weekend, as if this didn't give it away. Wasn't so sure about Mo'Nique winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, but when the last 15 minutes of the movie comes around, she pretty much seals it up. My heart is still with Anna Kendrick, though. The movie was...good. I had heard it wasn't as good as expected, so going in with low expectations helped. Any movie with Lenny Kravitz has to be gold, though, right? Anyways, hello, hello. We begin week number lucky 13 with some links and, more importantly, the first day of summer. We kicked off our final Signs of Summer post today when I suggested a few records to spin throughout the coming months. It will officially conclude tomorrow when my better half mans the helm for his picks. Remember, any and all suggestions for additions to the list are welcome. Before you take a look back at that, though, use a few minutes out of the day to check out a couple links. Summer is officially here, so you wouldn't want to not start the season out correctly, right?
