*Endorsements: Musicians are endorsing cellphones. The exciting thing is the 10-pic photo rotation of 10 celebs with their cellphones!!!! Including Usher! [largehearted boy]

*Metaverse: Gibson launches “Gibson Island” in Second Life. I didn’t even know you could have virtual sex with a guitar! (I am an innocent.) [getty images]

*Charts: TuneCore has its own chart on Billboard now. [hypebot]

*Videogames: Wii Music will have 50 playable instruments and no competitive elements, will support 4-player games, and be able to record video of players’ performances.

*Local: The Jayhawks are getting back together. I liked the Jayhawks. [indieblogheaven]

*Politics: An update on that Barack Obama benefit show at St. Paul’s Turf Club on August 27th – it will feature Low, Dosh, P.O.S., Josh Grier, and STNNNG, among others. [switchblade comb]

*Off topic: Twitter buys Summize. I sometimes use Summize to see if anyone else has Twittered the same quip I’m planning on quipping. Luckily, it seems my lameness is sui generis.

*Disappointment: I thought naked short-selling would be a lot more interesting when I first heard the term.
