Daybreak Daily’s always-risky venture into the pop-culture forest finds a bunch of old guys who are (possibly) still gettin’ it done, a strange auction bid, much more stuff and a special mystery music video.

BIG LICK: Per Rolling Stone, “All four members of the Rolling Stones were photographed exiting a building in London yesterday, fueling rumors that the band is planning a 50th anniversary tour for 2012. The band is unlikely to confirm anything for the foreseeable future, partially because Mick Jagger wants all attention focused on his new band SuperHeavy. The Stones haven't played together since their Bigger Bang tour wrapped in August of 2007.” http://bit.ly/np7XZO

REMEMBER HUEY LEWIS?: Per TMZ, “So ... what kind of a person drops $37,500 on a pair of crazy "Back to the Future" shoes??? A 22-year-old British rapper named Tinie Tempah ... that's who. TMZ spoke with Tinie's rep ... who told us the London native is a serious shoe collector ... and he simply fell in love with the Marty McFly sneakers at the charity auction in L.A. last night.” http://bit.ly/mP9J06

DISPARITE AUDIENCES: Per the L.A. Times, “For many viewers, the most memorable moment of Wednesday's Republican presidential debate was the roaring applause that followed Brian Williams' question regarding the record-breaking 234 executions carried out during Rick Perry's tenure as Texas' governor. But on Thursday night's episode of "The Colbert Report," Stephen Colbert didn't express dismay at the jubilant reaction; in fact, he joined in the revelry, gleefully wielding two syringes as if they were pistols. "Mentioning executions is a sure-fire applause line for conservatives. It's like saying 'pot' to the audience of 'The Daily Show,' he said.” http://lat.ms/pBSofK

OK. GOOD. GLAD TO HEAR IT: Per People, “Days after her accident, a smiling Reese Witherspoon was spotted stepping out for breakfast in Beverly Hills with her husband, Jim Toth. The sighting comes only days after her Wednesday afternoon accident, when an 84-year-old woman's car smacked into the Oscar winner while she was jogging in Santa Monica, Calif.” http://bit.ly/qd1K3I

SHE’S A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY: Per Deadline, “ABC has bought Malibu Country, a comedy project starring and executive produced by Reba McEntire, which reunites her key auspices of her successful 2001 the WB sitcom Reba. Former Reba showrunner Kevin Abbott will write and Malibu Country and will executive produce with former Reba executive producers McEntire, Mindy Schultheis & Michael Hanel.” http://bit.ly/ovCOj9

KIM KARDASHIAN IS IN THIS ITEM: Per CocoPerez, “Talk about a buzz kill. Fashion's Night Out at the DASH boutique came to a screeching halt on Thursday after some overly excited fans attempted to jump the barricade to get to DJ Pauly D. Both the Jersey Shore star and Kim Kardashian's in-store appearance attracted an insane amount of people outside the 119 Spring St. location, which forced the NYPD to shut the party down.” http://bit.ly/rtovIW

NO COMMENT: Per the Huffington Post, “Of all the filmmakers you might expect to make a film about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee, Mel Gibson is probably not at the top of the list. So consider this a Hannukah surprise. Deadline broke the news that Gibson and Warner Bros. are teaming on a film about the hero who led a small band of Jews against mighty Seleucids armies and, among other things, liberated Jerusalem. Gibson will produce the picture, and potentially direct, too.” http://huff.to/peFrrX

SUCH WISDOM TO IMPART, SHE HAS: Per ONTD, “Is Miley Cyrus just another spoiled starlet going off the rails? Joe Yogerst thinks not, and spoke to her about being stalked by the paparazzi, playing Demi Moore’s teenage daughter, and her dark sense of humour.” http://bit.ly/qaL45x

A BONE FOR THE HIGH-BROWS: Per indieWIRE, “Nadine Labaki’s “Where Do We Go Now?” has officially been chosen as Lebanon’s entry into the Best Foreign Language Film category for the 2012 Academy Awards. It screens at the Toronto International Film Festival tomorrow. The film premiered in the “Un Certain Regard” section at Cannes this year and is still seeking distribution. Labaki’s previous success, “Caramel,” was Lebanon’s entry for the 2007 Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.” http://bit.ly/pJRBb0

GAGA AND NINE-ELEVEN: Per MTV, “Lady Gaga is one of the many New Yorkers who were affected personally by the terror attacks on September 11. The pop star was in high school in Manhattan the day it happened, and 10 years later, she still tears up when remembering the intense emotions she felt as she watched the Twin Towers fall.” http://on.mtv.com/n4o91z

MORE 9/11: Per the AP, “Broadway plans to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks with a reprise of the song that performers sang in Times Square in the days after 9/11. Matthew Broderick, Harvey Fierstein, Joel Grey, Bebe Neuwirth and Brooke Shields will gather with cast members from several musicals to sing John Kander and Fred Ebb's "New York, New York" - as they did 10 years ago.” http://apne.ws/rrZrmU

AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. http://bit.ly/Qbnf6
