Links for 6.3.08: Neil Young’s car, Bovinus’ cow singer, Cobain’s remains

*Neil Young drives a 1959 Lincoln Continental that will soon run on electricity. I drive a 2000 Honda Civic. Or, often, take the bus. FYI.

*Bovinus is a metal band with a cow who sings vocals. God, Metal Sucks rules.

*The UkeCast is a podcast full of ukeleles. Seems perverted? [mefi]

*Kurt Cobain’s ashes were stolen. Also, Converse named a line of shoes after him.

*Radiohead’s back catalog goes up for sale on iTunes soon. You can’t pay what you want; you have to pay what Apple wants.

*Qloud launches “My Music” application for MySpace. It is pronounced like CLOUD. As I have been told so many times since I first blogged about them. [mashable]

*M.I.A. is engaged. And pregnant! With twins! [sorta, not really, not really]

*Local: Gnarls Barkley will be playing at the Minnesota State Fair this year. (You may park in my front yard for $8.) [mnspeak]

*Music/fashion mash: A N.E.R.D. t-shirt, perhaps? For their “Seeing Sounds” album.

*Off topic: Public radio nerds on Twitter. Most people are horseshit twitterers. Including public radio people, I assume. [mediation]

*Off topic item I am not going to dig deeper on: The Google trend of the hour at 7:58 pm was “what to do if inside of girl gets wet.” (No idea.)
