Links for 8.6.08: Bowling and rock, vinyl resurgence, accordion love…

*Questions: What do you get when you cross bowling, Brooklyn, and a small rock-and-roll concert venue? Probably Pabst Blue Ribbon and a lot of beards, but who am I to even guess? NO ONE. That’s who. Or whom. Or whatever. [wiredset]

*Once again: Indie rock vinyl is on the rise. The vinyl edition of Fleet Foxes “Fleet Foxes” costs $16. I don’t know if that’s a good price or not.

*Some say the accordion is making a comeback. I say it never went away.

*Compilation: The Rap Up offers its analysis of best and worst hip-hop videos of 2008 so far.

*Showtime: Joss Stone will play Anne of Cleves in The Tudors. Anne of Cleves was known as the ugly one. Not kidding. (Sad.)

*Video: Paris Hilton responds to John McCain on Funny or Die. Will her energy policy work? [mefi]

*Literature: Hamlet’s Facebook newsfeed. WTF? Everyone knows normal pokes don’t show in a newsfeed. GAWD. [spin city]
