Links for 10.26.08: Butts, sounding black and Bono + bikinis
by Josh Kimball
*Politics: Where voting and music meet: Q-tip, Brad Paisley and Fall Out Boy. OK, that’s a weird trio.
*Academia: Kid Rock has established a scholarship. For STUDENTS.
*Music: Here is Kanye West’s “Robocop.” Which Kanye West says he did not leak. In other news Kanye West recently saw the image of Kanye West in a tortilla Kanye West was using to make his signature Kanye West burrito. It has carnitas in it.
*Butts: Songs about butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts. Butts.
*Ouch: Bad concert experiences caught and codified by the A.V. Club. “There must have been a hundred kids—some as young as 13 and 14—face down on the parking-lot blacktop, hands cuffed behind their backs, bawling their eyes out.” [largehearted boy]
*OH HELLO: This is me, for the jobby job. Boring. On the plus side, I saw Diane Keaton.
