*Band of Horses’ bearded Wal-mart apologist Ben Bridwell has changed his mind, and will now NOT be taking licensing dough from the world’s largest retailer for the BoH indie smash “The Funeral.” Now I can die in peace. With a decent soundtrack. [nme]

*Ringtone sales are down – a 20% decline from October 2006 to October 2007. [coolfer]

*Wu Killa Bee. The RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan carefully explains his music and film influences. [via jimray’s del.icio.us]

*There’s a DVD coming out – from McSweeney’s’ Wholpin – that contains footage of Elliott Smith playing a Rastafarian basketball player in a Paul Thomas Anderson short film. [the playlist]

*Social.FM has launched a Facebook app that will scan users’ profiles and make a little player from their faves. [hypebot]

*Hannah Montana now has a Tooth Tunes MP3-playing toothbrush. Also, she is not pregnant. [shiny shiny]

*The Times reviews R&B’s “eccentric visionary” R. Kelly. Except for the criminal/sexual issues, the guy is really interesting.

*Warner Music is kissing Steve Jobs and making up (they want to use iTunes to sell music for mobiles). [ars technica]

*A friend and colleague of mine is a hybrid mom. Be kind. Recycle. Also, elimination communication.
