    'American Idol' Fires Longtime Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe

    What a year for American Idol. Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban joined Randy Jackson on the cast, making for an awesome power quartet of judges. And then… well, it's hard to recall exactly what happened. Mostly because no one was watching. But there was a drunken stabbing in Pennsylvania.For the record, in the end, Candice Glover beat Kree Harrison. More to the point: Suffering from record-low ratings and ending with a record-low finale in its 12th season, the titanic TV powerhouse proved it too was sinkable and, sure enough, the jettisoning is in full effect. Very few are sticking around to go down with the ship. Following the announcement Jackson would be leaving after 12 years of judging, the diva duo of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey said they were splitting, too. And now, via the Hollywood Reporter, the show's longtime executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has been fired.

    In March, Ghostface Killah took over one of the Boiler Room's Los Angeles sessions with his 12 Reasons to Die collaborator Adrian Younge, treating both the live in-person and streaming audience to a dramatic show. Anyone who missed it then is now in luck, as new video of Ghostface rolling through his high-power set, at one point assuming the role of a bizarre Illuminati-like cult leader, is available online.Backed by a Younge-led live band, the Wu-Tang Clansman walks out to "Daytona 500" from his beloved solo Ironman, then jumps into his verse on Kanye West's "New God Flow". He follows up with some help from Killah Priest on GZA's Liquid Swords classic "4th Chamber".

    Considering all the complex code-hacking and Kanye West-like projections leading up to the announcement of Boards of Canada's first release in eight years, it's safe to say anticipation has been high for Tomorrow's Harvest. So high, in fact, that on May 27 around 100 fans drove to the abandoned Lake Dolores Waterpark in middle-of-nowhere desert town Newberry Springs, California, after discovering and decoding a map and message hidden within a tweet from the band. Clueless as to what lay ahead, some of these zealots traveled up to 15 hours to the mysterious location, more than 100 miles outside of Los Angeles.What they discovered out there in the dry heat of the Mojave Desert was the first-ever listening party for Tomorrow's Harvest, which SPIN streamed a week later and then hastily reviewed. What the rest of us got immediately was a USTREAM video.
