Okay, this is an odd list. Is this not an odd list? Most specifically, John Mayer. Right? That's a left-field pick. Is he not the Leonard Zelig of our time? And Shaheen Jafargholi? Hmm. The rest is fascinating and spot-on. The participants for Michael Jackson's memorial tomorrow have been announced, one that WEST COAST SOUND HAS A TICKET TO! (Sorry, but that's scream-worthy, isn't it?) Yes, that is correct: We're inside the Staples Center tomorrow, and will be tweeting when it's not considered vulgar to do so.

Announcement after the jump:
