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.

*Linguistics: It is possible to sound black. If you didn’t know this, you are a racist. [murketing]

*Bono: Bono has been caught partying with some 19-year-old girls. If by partying, you mean posing for pictures. Also, there are bikinis involved. I hate Bono. [buzzfeed]

*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.
