Daily Digest: plagiarism, posters, Pilgrim, pothead pickins and Pitchfork

Hey! It's this picture again!
Formerly a totally inoffensive comedian, Patrice Oneal joins the ranks of Dane Cook, Carlos Mencia and Denis Leary by biting and capitalizing another guy's shtick with his new show, "Patrice Oneal's Guide to White People." Just so happens that the "other guy," Christian Lander, will speak at the Arkansas Literary Festival on April 8. (Look out for a Q&A with him in next week's issue.)

Also, Lander has collaborated with University of Arkansas students Jason Wilkins and Joel Eikenberry for a series of "What White People Like" posters. You can find them at Workspace, their website.

For once, I'm not grimacing at Michael Cera. The Scott Pilgrim v. The World trailer debuted today, everyone watched it. Looks fun.

More Levon news: the annual Mountain Jam in Hunter, NY will celebrate his 70th birthday with a metric shit-ton of bands.

We reported the first part yesterday; Local Natives do a second song for Pitchfork. It's fantastic. Show here on April 28th.
