1. Tina Fey talks “Mean Girls” musical at Tribeca Film Festival.

In talking about the upcoming “Mean Girls” musical at the Tribeca Film Festival, writer Tina Fey expressed doubt that all the film’s original references would hold up in the 12 years since the very quotable film was released and how the musical would work in social media. “Like three-way calling is not a thing,” Fey said.

2. Your ACL lineup is almost here.

Those speculating whether or not Radiohead’s recent Lollapalooza billing and a possible Austin visit in June might speak to the band’s ACL-headline potential, won’t have to wonder much longer. The festival, scheduled for Sept. 20-Oct. 2 and Oct. 7-9, will release its 2016 lineup the morning of May 5, Austin360’s Deborah Sengupta Stith reports. Tickets are set to go on sale the same day.

3. This is the best Owen Wilson impression, which is saying something.

Wow. If this isn’t actually Owen Wilson impersonating someone else, who is impersonating himself, then this impression by popular Vine user Peter Gilroy is truly impressive. Part of the reason may be that Gilroy is in fact a Texas actor, who has starred in movies like “Zombeavers.” Watch the full video below.

4. Austin ranked among top 10 coffee cities.

According to a new list compiled by personal finance company SmartAsset, Austin is the No. 7 top city for coffee fiends. The list took into account factors like availability, price and the number of high-end coffee shops and roasters in deciding which cities are perfect for getting that caffeine fix.

5. Tupac joined anti-Trump campaign in 1992.

Tupac spoke out against GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump long before stars like Adele and Keith Richards did, NME reports. An interview from 1992 shows the rapper commenting on Trump and greed in America summing up the business mogul’s ideals as, “Gimme, gimme, gimme. Push, push, push, push. Step, step, step. Crush, crush, crush. That’s how it all is, it’s like nobody ever stops.”
