Links for 5.6.08: Wu-tang videogame, Prince’s book, Jack White’s doc…

*Indie videogames: The Sewer Goblet – The Wu-Tang Clan and the Wu-Tang Baby: “It was an ordinary day at the Wu-Tang mansion. Ghostface and Raekwon tossed around a football in the backyard while Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA, and the rest of the gang watched the game inside. What nobody expected was the knock at the door that would forever change their lives. Much to their surprise, a tiny but majestic baby with a mysterious pendant was on their doorstep.” Wow. Wu-tang’s love is endless. [waxy]

*JEWELRY: The turntable ring. Pretty sure I couldn’t pull it off. [red ferret]

*Legal P2P Qtrax, who claimed to have a number of labels on their side several months ago, has apparently finally gotten Universal on their side. [listening post]

*Neil Young, being rich, has a refreshing attitude about the future of music: “The recording business is going somewhere but I don’t care about that.”

*Talk to the banana: I’m ordering this now. Now now. [laughing squid]

A few months old, but a worthy mashup: Mr. Bean on acid. I mean, Mr. Bean for Apple.
