Links for 8.15.08: Accordion rock, Michael Phelps’ iPod, bikes pimped with speakers…

*Sports: What is on United States Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps’ iPod? Lil Wayne and Eminem. I was expecting Leonard Cohen. [spinner]

*Accordions: You may have heard (a week or so ago on the listenerd) that accordion rock is back. Now you can find out one man’s Top 5 Accordion Rock songs. (Not mine.) [largehearted boy]

*Travel: If you are stuck on a layover in Paris at Charles de Gaulle (or Orly) airport, you can get dancing lessons for free. [coudal]

*Teenypop: The Jonas Brothers’ brand may be worth billions. [ypulse]

*Social music: TechCrunch questions whether Last.fm has enough juice to compete with Imeem. (Google Trends charts count as analysis?)

*Arrests: DMX has been arrested again. My professional opinion is that he is pathological. Maybe even crazier than R. Kelly. Or Jessica Simpson. [bossip]

*Collections: Free MP3 downloads pulled off of 78 RPM records. A lot of them. [s4xton]

*Transportation: Bikes pimped out with kick-ass speaker systems. You need to see these pics. [psfk]

*Off topic: You should consider listening to an audio outtake of an interview former Gawker editor Choire Sicha did with insane mindgrape scion Alec Baldwin. [videogum]

You need to see these bikes pimped out with speakers. Before you die. In fact, before you waste another 10 minutes of your life. I want a bike.
