Links for 11.5.08: Obama’s single, M.I.A.’s “hole” and blind wine…

by Josh Kimball

*Hip-hop: Brother Ali has recorded a Barack Obama-inspired single called “Obama, You’re the Man.” I may have said this before, but I like Brother Ali. Download the track at MFR. The truth is here.

*Bloggers’ paradise: M.I.A. covers The Wire‘s theme song, “Way Down in the Hole.” Here’s the video. It’s in black and white. Like fucking art or something. [multiple sources!]

*Listen: Last.fm lets ‘net users listen to tunes of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart online. Maybe I need to go back to Last.fm? Maybe? [lp]

*Copyright: Gwen Stefani released her kid’s (Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale) first publicly available baby pictures under a Creative Commons license. Wow. That shit is bananas. [licensing plate]

*Mind control: Turn your environmental noise into soft, soothing sounds with EcoTones. “In the event a loud truck suddenly came by, for example, Ecotones would instantly and automatically raise the volume level and insert a custom sound, such as a loud crashing wave or a seal barking.” Woof. [cnet]

*Video: Heidi Klum’s viral Guitar Hero commercial is an homage to “Risky Business.” Underwear is involved. And pretending to play the guitar.

*LIQUOR: Lazarus Wine is made by blind people, for blind people. The labels are in Braille. [swissmiss]

*Twitter: Five of the funniest twitters you will ever read: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE. Thank you!
