No you are not on drugs. The album covers in this gallery really are moving right before your eyes. Mr. Dormouse of the tumblr “Animated Albums” has taken it upon himself to turn some his favorite albums into GIFs – and the Internet thanks him for it. So throw on your favorite new playlist and take in this animated musical awesomeness.
There’s a reason The Muppets still hold a special place in our silly hearts. Now, a tribute album is on its way, celebrating the original songs from their five year run on CBS from 1976 to 1981, and covered by My Morning Jacket, Weezer, The Fray, Andrew Bird and more.
This weekend is CT’s B.O.M.B (Bring Back Our Music) Fest at the Comcast Theater in Hartford. The lineup is quite diverse: Weezer, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalia, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Best Coast, George Clinton, The New Pornographers, Wavves, Dum Dum Girls and a lot more.
New video from Weezer starring the whole gang of idiots from Jackass 3D. What a combination.

This week’s a big one for new music, debuting albums from Lil Jon, Christina Aguilera, Plies, Against Me and more. Check our capsule reviews and videos.
