- “If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play.” That’s Bob Dylan, in a statement on his Web site, responding to criticism that he compromised on selections for his recent concerts in China.

- A Jeff Mangum reference on last night’s episode of “Parks and Recreation”? Sure, why not?

- On Wednesday, pop critic Chris Richards chimed in on the 30-second snippet of Michaele Salahi's new pop single "Bump It" and promised more analysis if the full song actually showed up on iTunes. Well, for 99 cents "Bump It" can now be yours. After a full listen, Richards describes it as "sub-Jenna Maroney."
