*Too funny: GetBack Media focuses on music fans who are 35+, concentrating on American pop culture from 1968-1990. Those were the days? [musicweek]

*More on the Take-Away Shows tip: They Shoot Music, Don’t They?: tiny concerts, for the people. Not a lot of huge names, but check out Shout Out Louds. [psfk]

*Read Cracked’s Top 10 Unintentionally Gay Rap Lyrics: Tupac’s “Ever since you was a pee-wee, down by my knee with a wee-wee.” [the rap up]

*I’m predicting only niche acceptance: The Ouija board guitar. [bb gadgets]

*A robot, in the form of a Honda Asimo, is going to conduct the Detroit Symphony. [listening post]

*Recommended: Finally, the video for “Smell Yo Dick” is available. NSFW. [lots and lots of places]

*Slightly off-topic: Interview with Craigslist’s CEO. Lots of transcript here: Love it.

*If you bought music from MSN Music back in the day, you will probably be screwed as of August 31, 2008. Due to DRM. You were warned. Many, many times. [ars technica]

*If you enjoy data visualization: Read this list. [kottke]

*Happy 60th, Pops!
