Links for 3.25.08: Subscription music, Muxtape, Loser Scholarship, Britney’s turn…

*More subscription stuff: BMG is considering a subscription music option? [techmeme] Though old-school technology pundits douse subscription music “schemes” with haterade at their mere mention, I don’t think it’s that dumb a deal. As I’ve said perhaps too many times: As a lazy-ass consumer, I want to outsource the pain in the ass of managing files to someone else. Does access and control necessarily equal ownership? More.

*The mixtape website everyone is talking about: Muxtape.

*You can listen to and obtain a new Flight of the Conchords mp3 from Brooklyn Vegan, among other places. “Yis.”

*If you want to search for MP3s (but don’t want to eff around with Hype Machine): Mp3gle. [our digital music]

*Sub Pop’s Loser Scholarship gives $13k to loser high school senior musician wannabes. [getty images]

*10M people tuned into How I Met Your Mother to see Britney. She didn’t have a meltdown. [huffpo]

*Imeem opens up its API and becomes a “media platform.” [paidcontent]

*LOCAL: The Rock the Walker concert slated for the eponymous Minneapolis museum this June looks pretty damn good: New Pornographers, Bon Iver, Cloud Cult, Andrew Bird. [reveille via switchblade comb]

*I have a FriendFeed.

Video: Senior Citizens re-enact “The Hills”

Heavy.com has created video of senior citizens doing word-for-word reenactments of scenes of “The Hills.” [huffpo]

(Neg: The bumpers are too long and the ads are annoying.)

Complaint Department: Kanye West division

I need to take 5 seconds to be annoyed: Great content. But Kanye, would it kill you to not truncate your RSS feed items? If you need to respond, Mr. West, you may do so in the comments.

Thank you.
