by Josh Kimball

*Webcasting: Radiohead will be webcasting a show live from Santa Monica tonight, at 8:30 Central time. They are competing with Barack, people. How are we supposed to find resolution here? [pop candy]

*Videogames: JamLegend takes the Guitar Hero phenomenon online. (Their site was offline when I tried to visit. Funny. I guess.) [techcrunch]

*The Brett Favre of Musicians: Entertainment Weekly interviews M.I.A.: “I was quite happy to just leave it all behind. I was happy with what I had achieved. Now, with the success of ‘Paper Planes,’ there’s pull for me to make another record.” [music slut]

*Obit: It seems like every day this summer you see a new music-related obit. This time it’s for a guy who isn’t even dead. Bloomberg accidentally runs Steve Jobs’ obituary.

*Ideas: The Futility of Flogging Music, by Music Think Tank. I guess I thought flogging meant something else. Which is why I clicked in in the first place. [largehearted boy]

*Music biz: MuSick in the Head (and ReadWriteWeb) muses on iTunes prospects of joining the cloud. “The potential notion of Subscription + Cloud + iPhone + Taste Networking = pretty compelling proposition.”

*Breastcasting: Katy Perry gets a cast made out of her breasts. And, I take it, she liked it. [buzzfeed]

*Mashups: Atmosphere vs. Silversun Pickups [mfr]

*Marketing services: Cherp is a marketing services agency that helps corporations optimize their presence on Twitter. Here’s what you need to know: Be a living, breathing human person with faults, aspirations and ideas. Use twitter. Don’t be a prick. Goodbye. [mashable]
