Bruce Springsteen’s eulogy for Clarence Clemons; Jill Scott beats Bon Iver on charts; Wugazi surfaces

- Bruce Springsteen posted to his Web site a “slightly revised” version of the eulogy he delivered at the memorial of late E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons. “Clarence doesn't leave the E Street Band when he dies. He leaves when we die.” It’s well worth reading, of course.

- Jill Scott scores the first No. 1 album of her career with “The Light of the Sun,” moving 135,000 copies in its first week. Bon Iver comes in second, as the critically-acclaimed “Bon Iver” sold 104,000 in its first week.

- Yesterday the Internet gave us something called Wugazi . It is exactly what it sounds like — a mashup of rap greats Wu-Tang Clan and D.C. punk legends Fugazi. It is the work of Minnesota hip-hop group Doomtree, and there will be a full album coming soon. It’s called “13 Chambers.” (Get it?) This inspired me to get on Twitter and start the #DischordRapMashup meme. It Takes A National of Ulysses to Hold Us Back, anyone? I also rather enjoyed Fat Joe Lally.
