Last Lap: Thursday’s Odds and Ends In Music News

by Blog Burger on June 10, 2011

We try to cover all the music stories that matter here on the VH1 blog. Sometimes, though, we find too many stories to cover, stories that don’t exactly “matter” but are worth sharing, or even just good stuff from our peers. Here’s your Thursday roundup:

After yesterday’s Los Angeles Times report that the Duplass Brothers (directors of Cyrus) have been shopping a script about a dramatic thriller about an indie rocker’s mother who tries to avenge her son’s death by tracking down a hypercritical Pitchfork writer, Eric Harvey wrote some alternate treatments for Sound of the City.

Numero Group Declines Agreement With Apple’s iCloud
