The Jenners will split $60M in their divorce settlement. That number raised a few eyebrows. Not theirs, of course, but a few.

Did you catch the Colbert Report last night? There was a steamy appearance by our lady, Terry Gross. (It starts around 3 min into the episode)
Stephen and Terry have talked many times, but here’s the latest one.
O: It’s hard as shit to write lyrics.
Casablancas: To write good lyrics.
O: Yeah, anyone who really gives it a shot.…
Casablancas: It’s hard to write good lyrics that are meaningful. It’s hard to not write bad lyrics and fake it and have a meaningless thing that sounds cool. That move you on a deep level and have a deep meaning but just sound good and you can enjoy lightly.
O: Lou Reed was really good at that.
Casablancas: Oh, man. He’s the best. When I was probably 19, he was doing a book signing at Barnes & Noble, and we went. He was walking away; we almost missed it. So I just grabbed one of the books—I didn’t even know if I had the money to pay for it—just to stop him, you know what I mean? And he was totally weird and awesomely insane.
O: “Sangria in the park,” man.
Casablancas: He’s the king.
In a delightful interview that touches on the boy’s club mentality, the impact of the Dirty Dancing soundtrack and the lyric writing process, Karen O and Julian Casablances interview each other for Time Out! New York in what might be one of my favorite pieces of the year.
Here are the best among literally DOZENS of links this week.
We’ve all been singing “It didn’t work out” since the taping. Join us.
Seth and Stephen Colbert undoubtedly nerding out in the Late Night green room.
I have a special folder for photos of small dogs snoozing on large sleeping places.
