Links for 9.26.08: Bono blogs, Prince abstains, Bon Iver cries…

by Josh Kimball

*Enigmas: Prince says to USA Today: “I’m single, celibate and sexy. I feel free.” Like Bob Dylan, the man knows how to be weird. Kudos.

*Money: A royalties deal is done for online music.

*Bono: Bono is blogging for the Financial Times. Probably with his dumb glasses on. Also, I don’t think he should start sentences or posts with the word “myself”! Gawd!

*Literature: More excerpts from Faith Evans’ book: “I called Big to share the news.” “He didn’t sound happy or sad. Just very noncommittal. ‘You keeping it?’ he asked. ‘Yeah. I am,’ I said. It was a quiet moment. ‘Are you sure?'” [bossip]

*Music: Bon Iver plays for NPR’s World Cafe. And then we both weep loudly into our hot coffee and stare out the window as the snow falls. [music slut]

*Blogging: Lil Wayne is blogging for ESPN. [everywhere]

*Love: Pubic hair exhibitionist Devendra Banhart and Natalie Portman have broken up.

*Upcycling: A cassette tape becomes a wallet.

*Video: Diesel makes a porn-without-the-porn viral video, SFW XXX, which I don’t really consider SFW (unless you have my job). [rob]
