Hey, remember Limp Bizkit? Boy, they were embarrassing, weren't they? Aren't we glad they went awa-whaddaya mean, they just put out a new album?! Yep, the band that can be stopped with Viagra is back, and their frontman is planning on starring in a sitcom about a rock star (their words) trying to balance his family life and the life of being a professional musician. In other words, it's a portrait of rock stars being boring. Best of all, the title is..."Douchebag." So they're aware of the marketing problem, anyway. [Billboard]

Starbucks: Hey, Maybe We Should Stop This Climate Change Thing Before It Kills All the Coffee

Like coffee? Want it to stick around? Well, you may not get much choice in the matter. According to Starbucks, global climate change is screwing up their coffee supply lines. And if something isn't done fast, ten to thirty years from now? No coffee. This is why Starbucks' sustainability chief (yeah, they have a head of recycling) is joining a coalition of businesses to basically try and embarrass Washington into achieving something. Hey, maybe they could join Occupy Wall Street! [Guardian]

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin Loses Cool During Interview

Apparently Steelers coach Mike Tomlin still kinda has a thorn is his side ever since Pittsburgh's tragic playoff loss to the Jaguars back in 2008. As many of you may already know, the Jaguars will be back in Pittsburgh this Sunday for an epic rematch. According to The Florida Times-Union, during a recent media conference, things got weird when someone asked coach Tomlin about sending video of a very decisive play in the 2008 playoff game to the league office. "No," Tomlin said. "Why would I?" Tomlin told reporters. "Wasn't there a questionable non-call on that play?" Things got even more awkward when Tomlin unloaded his frustrations and eventually hung up the phone. "I'm not going to cry over four-year-old spilled milk," Tomlin bluntly stated. "I understand that might have been a big game in Jacksonville, but that's old news. Many of those guys are no longer here and definitely many of the guys that were in Jacksonville are no longer there. Anybody got any questions relative to this week?" Wow. Are you ready for some football? I know I am. [NFL]
