3. David Drake's prize-winning one-man show The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me will be reimagined as a ensemble show for its 20th anniversary. The show benefits Broadway Cares/Fight AIDS and a lot of famous gays (André de Shields, Anthony Rapp, B.D. Wong) will be in it.

4. The Times has a great slideshow on Mercura NYC, the one-of-a-kind sunglasses company run by sexagenarian sisters Merrilee Lichtenstein Cohen and Rachel Cohen-Lunning.

5. Deadpan British band Art Brut has released an iPad app to showcase the album art for their new best-of compilation. (via Press Release)

6. "Are Beer Drones the Future of the Music Business?" (Also, why does a South African music festival have a "district 9 campsite"?)
