Links for 11.17.07: Barack’s YTMND, Slacker’s machine, Kelly’s insanity +

*OurStage lets rich hipsters listen to top indie tunes on their iPhones. [techcrunch]

*The identity of a presidential candidate, delivered to you in an easy-to-consume, YTMND format: Barack Until the Break of Dawn. [triumph of bullshit]

*8-bit + hip-hop = Super Barrio Bros. [kotaku]

*Slacker releases its handheld player. [digital music news]

*Toilet Tunes: The finest in On-Toilet music delivery (plays automatically when the lid is up, shuts off when the lid is down). [boing boing gadgets]

*R. Kelly’s PR agent of 14 years bids adieu. “Mr. Kelly crossed a line that forever altered the scope of our relationship.” Oy. [xrrxf] Also, Vulture interviews Mr. Kelly here.

*Salon tells you “What You Missed While Watching ‘Project Runway.‘” Doubly painful to link to, since I’m not a Salon fan (long story) and think Rob Walker’s work in the Times is both painful and execrable (though his murketing stuff seems pretty awesome). [murketing deli.cio.us]

*Bob Dylan and Jack White are working on cranking out tunes from Hank Williams’ old never-produced lyrics? [peefork]

*Remember how Ben Bridwell and Band of Horses were all like “Eff the indie man, we’re taking money from the Man Man,” but then they decided to say “Eff the man,” and embrace the indie man, and ditch Wal-mart licensing at the last second? Well, Of Montreal isn’t doing that. They talk about the art of selling out on Stereogum.

*Videoville: A wiki for all your “cool music video” needs. Huh. Nothing yet. [fimoculous]

*GigaOm reviews music games (Phase and Musica) for the iPod. Tangentially: 183 point streak on iLike on Facebook. That is all.

*Take the Mental Floss lyrics quiz. I will not be destroyed (not part of this quiz – as far as a I know – but a sort of lyrics quiz nonetheless).
