Links for 9.24.08: MySpace music launch, Sigur Ros, Bono sucks! vlog…
by Josh Kimball
*Organs: Is a 27-year-old one of the best to EVER play the organ? Personally, I like the guy at the Metrodome who does the Gary Glitter stuff. Chipper!
*Celebrity: Wired’s Listening Post reviews celebrity bands. A few notes: if you are not INTO celebrities, please don’t wander aimlessly into this realm. To begin with, no KEVIN BACON? 2nd: It is 30 ODD FOOT OF
GRUNT (not GRUNTS!). GAWD. [earfarm]
*U2: Bono and Sarah Palin didn’t meet today, despite a scheduled appointment. Sad. For anyone who hates to see the forces of evil all marshaled in one place. (Not sure.)
*Politics: If you wish to stay informed, read this point / counterpoint regarding Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
*Copy: GooseGrade is a widget for blogs that allows readers to submit copyediting corrections.
Readers – if you exist – please know that clean copy (on this blog) is not my specialty. Because I usually write these two-line bullets after heavy drinking.
Also, if you click through on the GooseGrade link above you will find a promo video of Vampire Weekend singing “I Stand Corrected,” which sounds a little Walkmen-like to me.
