Links for 10.14.08: Ringo hates, Opus dies (?), Rihanna throbs…
by Josh Kimball
*Clones: Everyone thinks the new Rihanna song, “Sexuality,” sounds just like a Prince tune. (Please note: a simple mention of Rihanna does not mean you will find here images of Rihanna naked. Apologies.
*TV: Wow. I love The Wire, but in watching The Last Word segment following the series finale, creator David Simon comments that newspapers made a mistake about the internet – they all thought it was advertising for their product. This is a complete misinterpretation of not only the decision newspapers have had to make, but the forces shaping both the online and internet business worlds. And it has shaken my faith in what drug dealing and Baltimore are really like. Also, gay gangsters with shotguns.
*Retail: Apparently, the way I have been coming about my old-school records has a name. That name is CRATE DIGGING.
*Toys: Daft Punk Bearbricks.
*Food: Bacon today. And, hopefully, tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day. And the next day. [kate]
