Outdoor fests don’t get any better than when they include truckloads of Faygo, kids with smeared clown makeup and the Illinois backwoods. link

-With Daft Punk already laying down the score, Tron Legacy gets even more awesome-sounding with a viral effort unleashed at Comic-Con. link

-LeBron-gate might finally come to an end. link

-AOL CEO Tim Armstrong continues to believe his company can succeed in a new sales pitch. link
