RCA Music Group is slimming down for the holidays by shuttering its Arista, Jive and J Records subsidiaries, a move by new label execs to strengthen the identity of the RCA brand.

Jive produced several of the biggest-selling albums of all time in the midst of the youth pop boom a decade ago, including the multi-platinum hits for 'N Sync, the Backstreet Boys and Spears.

It was big on nonsense words like "vout-o-rootie" and "vootimo" and all-purpose suffixes like "-oroonio."

That's why these plays are so easy to make into movies. Whatever your stance on Rick Cluchey's "The Cage" at the Odyssey, one thing is beyond debate: This is one prison drama that will never be made into a movie.

As former Jets executive Pat Kirwan was preparing to open his radio program, he couldn't stop shaking his head at the numbers spinning around him. Not yardage and tackles and touchdown statistics. Dollar signs. Lots and lots of dollar signs. "The Albert Haynesworth deal to kick off the (free agency) season was really bad," Kirwan told his Sirius NFL Radio audience. "The money doesn't jive with the economy. It doesn't jive with the end of the CBA (collective bargaining agreement)
