Since sifting through dull newspapers, hyperbolic blogs, and overflowing RSS feeds for meaningful news can be an arduous process, News Net catches and compiles both the amusing and the significant reports that were overlooked throughout the week.
• Milwaukee’s favorite mp3 player, Girl Talk, will join rapper Lupe Fiasco for a show tonight at the Marcus Amphitheater. Trouble is, the show is part of UW-Milwaukee’s “PantherFest,” and will only be open to current UWM students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Tap Milwaukee has the details anyway.
• A terrific new album from The Celebrated Workingman, Content Content, dropped last week as part of the Made In Milwaukee fest. Evan Rytlewski of the Shepherd Express talked to singer-songwriter Mark Waldoch about the album, which can be streamed here. Look for a review on this site early next week.
• In case you haven’t heard, Brewers pitcher John Axford has a mustache, and he isn’t afraid to use it. According to OnMilwaukee.com, the ace closer has lent his hairy mug to the 2011 Milwaukee Film Festival, which begins Thursday, Sept. 22.
• Tired of snickering at so-called “ghost hunters” from the comfort of your living room? Now you can heckle these clueless dopes from the oppulance of the Riverside Theater. Tap Milwaukee has some info on the upcoming “Ghosthunters Live” show coming to Milwaukee Jan. 20, 2012.
• From the “In your face, Mary Lou Retton” department comes news that Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews will be featured on two new Wheaties boxes. According to WISN, the boxes will only be available in Wisconsin, though that probably won’t stop the state’s rabid Packers fans from hailing them as the second coming of breakfast cereals.
• A few weeks ago, we told you about Billy Club, the upcoming film from Blood Junkie filmmaker Drew Rosas. Mark Metcalf recently sat down with Rosas and chewed the indie-film fat for Third Coast Digest.
