Following the ridiculous pre-order packages that Run The Jewels put up the other day, a fan has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Meow The Jewels Package.

It's all about women in the Billboard Hot 100's top five again, as Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" heads up an all-female top five for a second straight week. [...] Below "Bass," Taylor Swift's former two-week No. 1 "Shake It Off" holds at No. 2 for a second week; Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" stays at No. 3 for a third week after reaching No. 2; Iggy Azalea's "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, rises to a new high (5-4); and Minaj's "Bang Bang," with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, backtracks to No. 5 from its No. 4 peak.

Mineral had their van broken into in St. Louis last night.
After our show this evening in St Louis at the Firebird we went to celebrate Chris’ birthday by going bowling at Flamingo Bowl. Shortly after 1am our van was broken into and all of our belongings were stolen. Thousands and thousands of dollars in personal electronics, a cash box with several shows worth of merch sales, clothing, invaluable intellectual property, and many many other items. Our rear cargo hold with most of the gear was thankfully left safe. The van was locked, we specifically paid to park in a well lit lot with an attendant. When we came out 30 min later, attendant was gone, locks popped off, and belongings gone....
