Here’s a little look at what’s going on in Twitterland today.

  • Henry Wagons shoots some pool, on video, with Powderfinger’s Darren Middleton and talks shop.
  • Megastar Akon says he’s going to make a “power move” with Rick Ross, but who is that little guy in this photo?
  • Empire Of The Sun had their giant swordfish heads stolen at Stereosonic! To the Cash Converters!
  • T-Pain’s iPhone case is “fuckin’ hilarious”. So is his wife’s. We think it’s sweet.
  • Brooodal deathcore band The Acacia Strain bring you “eternal slumber” in beverage form.
  • Ben Lee and Old Man River are going to India. Lee even tweeted exact dates. You might bump into him over there.
  • We’re pretty sure the “ho ho ho” that Wavves are making for Lady Antebellum’s Christmas album aren’t necessarily derived from jollity.
  • Garbage are getting suitably drunk while listening to their newly-completed album. Everything rocks when you’re pissed.
  • Ooooh. UK star Tinie Tempah has one word for us, and it’s “studio”. His last tweet was “Amen!”. Whatever could it mean.
  • It seems Dave Stewart is tweeting during an interview with Richard Wilkins for the Today Show right now.

Here’s our interview with Dave Stewart below. Watch his hands.
