Links for 7.6.08: Hard Rock Park, Hockey Organ, St. Paul Obama benefit…

*The New York Times covers the Hard Rock Park (mentioned previously on the listenerd), a rock-and-roll theme park with a Led Zeppelin roller coaster and a water ride called Slippery When Wet.

*The Hockey Organ: Holy crap, it’s an organ hooked up to an arcade hockey game. I would like one. Also, I don’t know how to play the organ. [via eyebeam reblog]

*Video: Urlesque collects video of white people dancing at formal events.

*Breaking John Cage As Slow As Possible news! A new chord for July 5th. [little-scale]

*From head injury to piano talent. [mefi]

*Local: Blocks away from the homestead, at the Turf Club, Minnesota slowcore band Low, along with Dosh, will be putting on a Barack Obama benefit concert. Date is August 27. I’m preparing to be shushed! [switchblade comb]

*AVOID (an irregular service from the listenerd): Mighty Magic Minis Popsicles. They are tiny. Their much-touted flavor potency is GOOD, but does NOT live up to the hype. Huge disappointment on all kinds of fronts – price, size, value, flavor. Please avoid at all costs.
