by Josh Kimball

*Words: It’s its and it is it’s (depending on context). [largehearted boy]

*Mashups: Dr. Dre is “reinterpreting Chopin symphony stuff.” [nymag]

*iPhone: Brian Eno releases Bloom, a music app for the iPhone Applications store. “Part instrument, part composition and part artwork.” All, WTF and a good portion I have no idea. [beat portal]

*Conversions: If you want, you can learn how to make albums into MP3s from Wired. OR you could just capture video of the album playing on a record player, post it on YouTube, then scrape it. [lifehacker]

*Big Retail: Wal-mart is leaving their DRM servers up for now. So those consumers who purchased DRM’d music from America’s largest retailer have some extra time to burn, baby, burn those discs. [medialoper]

*Politics: John McCain’s daughter’s playlist includes The Ting Tings, Tokyo Police Club, Zeppelin and Mos Def. The woman knows how to use the internet. [the rap up]

*Politics and cinema: If you would like to see a clip of W. Or maybe you are looking for a break from all that?

*Products: Torque your headphones with freakin’ MAGNETS? [joshspear]

*The Annals of Law: Champaign county judge forces hip-hop fan to listen to classical music.
