*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]
*Ice T will perform with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
*To debut at Cannes this month: “It Might Be Loud,” a guitar doc that will feature Jack White and Jimmy Page. [the playlist]
*WMG plans on trying true variable rate pricing. (I’m not wholly against it, if it’s done right. I know, I know.)
*The Zune: Buy and watch TV shows from NBC, MTV and some others now. [crave]
*Re-blogging (I mentioned this in a previous post): Built for the BBC, the Olinda is a funky-ass radio.
*EVERYONE: listenerd favorites Will.I.Am and Michel Gondry have won WEBBY awards. I don’t know what they get for it; possibly a statuette.
*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.”
