Links for 6.18.08: Mayer’s cruise, Method’s book, gas prices suck…

*You can take a cruise with John Mayer if you like. On a ship. With no easy way to get off. [daily swarm]

*Listen: A piece from NPR’s “All Things Considered” on rocking CEOs. And I do mean “rocking.” With the “g.” [whyifailed]

*How high gas prices crush touring bands: “Covering the 635 miles to San Francisco takes about 37 gallons of gas each way. With gas well over $4, that’s more than $300 for a round trip.” [idolator]

*Games: JamsMatch is like playing online concentration, but with album covers. [mefi]

*Play: Rock Band through Facebook. NOTHING gets you further away from the experience of actually rocking. Or your money back. (But not your private data.)

*Read: Method Man wrote a graphic novel: “If you’re trying to appeal to 13-year-olds and 12-year-olds, that’s cool — make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie! Which they did, and I liked that movie.” [pop candy]

*Now playing: Watch music videos from Universal Music Group artists on

*Festivals: The full Lollapalooza lineup here.

*Off topic: George Takei is getting gay married.

*I don’t know why, but the fact that the Olsen Twins like Cat Power brings me pleasure.
