Jack White has his sights set on breaking the Guinness World Record for making a record in the shortest amount of time (the Social Climber is still getting her head around that, too). The former White Stripes frontman will perform the title track from his forthcoming album, “Lazaretto," and hopes to get the whole thing recorded and sold in a single day, The New York Times reported.

White will attempt his ambitious recording in a studio belonging to his own label, Third Man Records, in Nashville from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 19, which is also World Record Day.

The Monty Python made a bittersweet announcement about their last-ever show on the same day they released their first song in many years.

The British comedic group that brought us such hits as "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," and "Every Sperm Is Sacred," along with a host of movies, books, television skits and live shows, is set to hang up their silly boots and embark on a host of individual projects after July.

Python Eric Idle promoted the new song called "The Silly Walks Song" on Twitter Wednesday, shortly after the group announced that their scheduled London performance at the O2 Arena will also be their last.

Tickets to their final performance go on sale April 4.

Mere days after Mozilla named Brendan Eich its new CEO, the head of the browser company has stepped down after the firestorm the ensued when his support of an anti-gay marriage bill got out. Eich's resignation was confirmed by a post written by Mozilla’s Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker on the company's blog in which she said "we haven’t stayed true to ourselves," and reiterated the company's commitment to diversity.

"We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better," Baker wrote.

Eich came under fire recently when it was discovered he donated $1,000 to support the 2010 California Proposition 8 legislation that repealed gay marriage. This week, dating site OKCupid publicly shamed him and called users to boycott Mozilla's Firefox browser.

"I have decided to resign as CEO effective today, and leave Mozilla," Eich said in a statement provided by Mozilla. "Our mission is bigger than any one of us, and under the present circumstances, I cannot be an effective leader. I will be taking time before I decide what to do next.”

There is no word on who's stepping up to take the company's top spot.
