daily entertainment links: Rock Hall lists nominees; 'Star Wars' in 3D; 'Boogate' explained; and more
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yesterday announced the list of nominees for induction next year, an eclectic group including Neil Diamond, LL Cool J and Detroit's Alice Cooper.
With Ann Arbor's Stooges finally enshrined, I've got a lot less to complain about in this whole process than I used to, but still ... shouldn't the MC5 be in the mix too? Hmmmm ....
Anyway, here's some more entertainment news of note online today:
• Quentin Tarantino's longtime editor has been found dead after going for a hike.
• All six "Star Wars" movies are going to be released in 3D, starting with "Episode 1: The Phantom Menace." Yep, 3D Jar-Jar Binks.
• Speaking of 3D, Nintendo's 3DS won't be ready for the holidays.
• The Los Angeles Times has a report on last night's elimination from "Dancing with the Stars" (and the answer's in the headline, so don't click on the link if you don't want to know). And the show went to great lengths last night to demonstrate that the booing heard Monday was not directed at Sarah Palin.
• In the first cancellation of the young season, Fox has dumped "Lone Star" after two episodes.
• Aaron Foley of MLive recaps last night's second episode of "Detroit 1-8-7."
• The Washington Post's TV critic notes, among other things, that last night's Britney Spears episode of "Glee" contained very little actual Britney.
• Betty White will be among those awarding Tina Fey the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in November.
FESTIVALS & FAIRS
• The Detroit News has a roundup of some fun fall activities in the metro area.
• Please, whatever you do, do not get me a Justin Bieber doll for Christmas.
