*Sexy men: Salon says that one of those preppy Ivy League dudes from Vampire Weekend is one of the sexiest men alive. I really liked that “Oxford Comma” song. But not THAT much. I mean. Not even close to that much. [largehearted boy]
*Videogames: The wondrous Waxy offers a collection of videos of Meta-Musicians, real rockers playing their own songs on Guitar Hero and Rock band. A few weeks ago, I sang Corinne Bailey Rae on Sing Star, though I am not Corinne Bailey Rae myself.
*Digital Rights Management: Apple is talking to more labels about offering their music through the iTunes store without digital rights management.
*Chinese Democracy: You are just three days away from claiming your free Dr. Pepper. Three days. Do not miss this or you will have to pay up to $1.25 for a Dr. Pepper in the future.

*Microsoft: Zune has cut prices. I would here like to make a bold stand and say that I prefer saying the word ZOON to saying the word EYEPOD. I’m just sayin’.
