Hot on YouTube over the past week.
*For those interested: The Grammy nominations. Included among the nominees is recently deceased rapper Pimp C.
*Are you ready for an offline Facebook publication? Insert “poke” joke here. (WHAT?) [hys par]
*The New York Times covers the Indie Rock Musical. [del.icio.us/mediaeater]
*On music writing and the 33 1/3 series: In Praise of Distraction. [murketing]
*On a related (?) note, Kanye West enjoys pornography.
*Metal Sucks (which does not at all suck in its metal coverage) digs up evidence of a Motley Crue soda, MOTLEY BRÜE, from an old Rolling Stone mag. Yum?
*Too Short (the artist responsible for this writer’s first-ever cassette tape purchase) has contributed music to be paired with Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” tracks for a remix album. [peefork]
*The Wire prequels (super short) on Amazon. See a young Prop Joe, circa 1962 Baltimore. Plus Bunk and McNulty. [mefi]
