Wasabi beer and music
Do you like Dogfish Head beer? Of course you do. The intrepid craft brewery down in Milton, Del., has a special bond with ethereal singer Julianna Barwick, who has actually performed there. Next month, they're releasing a new brew called Rosabi, featuring overtones of red rice and wasabi. Julianna collaborated in the design and brewing, grinding the rice herself. And she's releasing an EP titled, yes, Rosabi, as a limited-release 10-inch record in special cases of Rosabi, plus as a digital download. Says here Rosabi "incorporates the symphony of sounds found in the brewing process." Gives new meaning to the term industrial music.
Did you see . . . ?
Actually, we hope you didn't see Neil Patrick Harris, top hat serving as codpiece, on the cover of Rolling Stone. . . . As of this writing, the lightly talented Clay Aiken of American Idol notoriety holds a 369-vote lead in his bid for the Democratic nomination for a U.S. House seat in North Carolina. Nail-biter! . . . Cedric the Entertainer is bowing out as host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, to be replaced by former NFL dude and now actor Terry Crews ( Brooklyn Nine-Nine). . . . Bruce Willis, 59, and spouse Emma Heming, 35, welcome daughter Evelyn Penn Willis. Bruce now has five daughters, yo, two with Emma and three with Demi Moore. . . . Question: Will Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher get married before baby arrives, or after? . . . Hmm. Philly's Will Smith and spouse Jada Pinkett Smith reportedly kind of like that creepy medium-warm pic of daughter Willow, 13, loungin' on a mattress with pal Moises Arias, 20. . . . Philly's own Kevin Hart and Indianapolis' own Mike Epps, who have jousted (but was it really serious?) on Twitter in the past, seemingly (but is it serious?) are at it again. Mike called Kevin "overrated" on a radio show last week, and Kevin tweeted a suggestion that Mike do away with himself. Mike tweets: "If it wasn't for the social media @KevinHart4real would not be present he was forced on you fans trough the web your gone to realize. . . ." Silly Marlon Wayans tries to calm everyone down, hilariously: " 'you boys stop it! Stop it now hear! Sound in' like 2 heathens'! * in my concerned black mother voice."
