Odd Future mastermind Tyler, the Creator has paid a Los Angeles club $8,000 to cover the damage he left in the wake of an Odd Future gig in December. The rapper allegedly trashed the Roxy's sound equipment, including a soundboard, in a fit of rage. Tyler was arrested outside the venue, and fans of the rap collective took to the streets to protest his arrest.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office will not file charges over the incident if the rapper complies with their requests in an upcoming meeting.

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music.

"If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
