It was a Four Loko-crazy kind of week. One day America lost its mind over Four Loko, and the next, that insanity was vindicated. But here's a list of stories from the past week where Four Loko did not make an appearance:

Four Loko is not downloadable - if only! - but Girl Talk's new album is. The Park Bench opened in South Baltimore, sans Wii and Four Loko. Carrie Underwood might have flown over 1st Mariner in a blue pick-up truck looking like a West Virginia Elphaba, but she did it, presumably, without the influence of Four Loko. Four Loko will not be available at the new Flying Dog brewery tours. But then again, maybe the tours themselves won't be either. Joanna Newsom has not had Four Loko with her groupies.   Sam Herring of Future Islands doesn't know if Four Loko is dead, but he thinks CDs are. Four Loko will not be allowed at the Midnight Sun Mix-off. Rams Head Live will not sell Four Loko over Facebook, you must have gotten the wrong message. It will only sell concert tickets.  Just like Four Loko, "Ace of Cakes" was canceled, but an episode with Stephen Malkmus will still air. Hey, you might be out of 4Loko, but, at least you're not any of these guys.
