Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Rush Limbaugh thinks there's a liberal Hollywood conspiracy afoot that the villain in "The Dark Knight Rises" is named Bane -- which sounds like Bain, the name of the equity firm Mitt Romney used to run. No, really, he said that. Is he off his meds, or on them? [MSNBC]

• Here's how director Andrew Stanton is going to get back on the horse after "John Carter": Going back to Pixar to direct "Finding Nemo 2." [The Hollywood Reporter]

• The S.S. Coachella -- a cruise version of the hipster music festival -- is happening this December, with trips to the Bahamas and Jamaica. Pulp leads the line-up. [The Huffington Post]
