These past months have been a roller-coaster ride for Soulja Boy. Months after his third album, "The DeAndre Way," failed to make a big impact on the Billboard 200, his 14-year-old half-brother passed away. But the 20-year-old Internet imp has channeled the negative and turned it into positive, birthing a new mixtape "Juice," out yesterday. Soulja Boy recently talked to Billboard.com about his upcoming projects, teaming up with some of the original cast from "Juice" (the 1992 film starring Omar Epps and Tupac Shakur)

RONNIE NEWSOME finished up his day job at SEPTA, packed up his gear and headed out to interview rapper Redman. Assigning buses to operators, then interviewing hip-hop stars - that's nothing exceptional for Newsome: By day, he's a vehicle readiness coordinator, but by night he hosts "Franchise Live," a cable access show that is a mixture of music video and interviews with hip-hop personalities ranging from Redman to Lil' Mama to Notorious B.I.G.'s...

GUSTAFER Yellowgold is a saffron-colored, cone-headed alien who comes from the sun. He relocated to Earth to escape the drudgery of working in his father's raisin carvery, ditching the family business for a shot at a more-inspiring journey. Gustafer started out as a doodle by Morgan Taylor, a New York-based indie rocker who, like many musicians, was struggling to connect with an audience. Until, that is, Taylor animated his recent immigrant from the sun. "The music I'm making is the music I've always been making.

SIGMA SOUND Studios (212 N. 12th), where David Bowie recorded his classic "Young Americans" LP in 1974, and where founder Joseph Tarsia hosted other major projects, is reinventing itself. Music producers Durell Bottoms , who has worked with Pink and Boyz II Men and Adam Blackstone , who recently recorded Jill Scott and toured with Maroon 5 , are among partners who have taken over the recording studio and transformed it in to a one-stop facility which can handle recording, video production and a concert space for private parties.

B UTCH PATRICK routinely hears from fans who've had a crush on him since the '60s, when he played Eddie Munster on "The Munsters. " "But not from a lot of cheerleaders," Patrick said, with a chuckle. The actor just moved near West Chester to be with former Eagles cheerleader Donna McCall , who was a young "Munsters" fan with whom he corresponded in 1964. McCall, a retired hospital pharmacist, e-mailed Patrick a few years ago to say that something had triggered her memory of him. Patrick, who lived in Florida and Los Angeles, kept in touch with McCall, and the pair met in May at a vampire convention near Pittsburgh.

I HAVE AN IDEA for a TV show: "So You Think You Can Parent. " Instead of having wannabe stars perform for the judges, I'd have parents called onstage for the thoughtless things they do in the name of child-rearing. We'd never run out of contestants because of the number of clueless mothers and fathers out there. Take, for instance, the brain-dead parents of those 7-year-olds who performed that risque dance routine to Beyonce 's "Single Ladies" at a California dance competition.

Michael Jackson's This Is It looks beyond the reconstructed face and spindly body of the late King of Pop and basks in his meteoric light. Culled from more than 100 hours of footage documenting Jackson's preparing for what was to be his farewell concert stand, the film is a privileged peek at the creative process of pop music's Peter Pan. The show Jackson was putting together was a compendium - and cinematic reimagining - of his greatest hits,...

Sorry, we don't do sexy "singles" in this column. Just long-playing albums and music videos. Uh, some of them can get sexy, though. Especially if the talent's wearing spandex. ALL TAPPED OUT: Yeah, those blokes in Spinal Tap have sure made the British brand of "long-haired, tight-trousered hard-rocker" seem oblivious, pompously overblown and misogynist. Yet in their fake careers as Derek Smalls, David St. Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel, comedian/musicians Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest offer an affectionate and knowing wink.

SOME LIKENED his passing to Elvis, but the worldwide PDEs (Public Displays of Emotion) were more like those poured out for John Lennon, who died 10 years younger than Michael Jackson, and also too soon. The Beatle had morphed from a pop star into a pop philosopher, putting out an idealistic, if somewhat addled, plea for a world of peace, equality and no borders. Jackson morphed from a pop star into a freak and then into a global superstar. He sang about a world of equality, but lived in a universe of bizarre behavior and wretched excess, symbolized by his gold-plated coffin.
