In stranger than fiction news, The Roots has been slated to become the house band when Jimmy Fallon hits the air on March 2nd. First, stated in an online video which was quickly taken off the air, ?uestlove remarked on his old age and their band’s desire to find a steady gig. The announcement was further confirmed by Jimmy Fallon on his blog. The band – most in their late 30s – are looking forward to living like “normal men,” as ?uestlove says. Although not a complete announcement of retirement, The Roots, known for their extensive touring, will definitely be putting their road show on hiatus.

It’s not some sexually ambigous symbol or some weird spelling, but Santogold has changed her name to simply Santigold. Born Santi White, the artist took on the name Santogold which happened to be shared with an actor/infomercial character who has made a living selling gold chains and making obscure songs since ’83. The gold chain wearing, infomercial making extraordinaire subsequently sued the artist formerly known as Santogold last year. Here’s Santigold’s official press release:
“Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your t-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year end list- Santogold is now Santigold. She’s not telling you why, that’s just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn’t be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that.”

If you happen to follow the lunar calendar, Happy New Years! 2009 marks the Year of the Ox. What does this exactly mean, well let me tell you.
People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people.
So all you Ox’s watch that fierce temper and good luck for the new year.
