Links for 11.26.08: MySpace Music’s boss, extreme beer, lists, lists, lists!

by Josh Kimball

*Social music: MySpace Music has finally named a boss, and it’s Courtney Holt. Weeee!!! [idolator]

*Downsizing: If I didn’t mention this before, Buzznet – publisher of Stereogum, Idolator, and Absolute Punk – cut 13% of their staff.

*Just whoa: If you have skills, you can now scrobble anything you listen to. And if you don’t know what scrobbling is, you don’t have skills. (That’s nothing to be ashamed of.) [waxy]

*Lists: Fimoculous’s annual, year-end list of lists is starting.

*Beer: The New Yorker does a profile of Dogfish breweries and outlines the possibilities of extreme beer. Beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer. Oh, I should also note that we wrote about BEERSHAKES for my day job a while back.

*Drinking: A co-worker directs me to this fantastical flickr photo set of people trying a drink called Jeppson’s Malort for the first time. Almost as good as those 2 Girls, 1 Cup reaction videos. And significantly less off-putting. The drink is apparently favored by one JOHN HODGMAN. (The drink in question being, of course, Jeppson’s Malort.) Ick. [charlotte]

*The circle of life: As soon as my new anonymous Twitter self (see this twittercide thingy for an explanation) gains 100 followers, I will out him. And we can begin this circle of life all over again. Shanti.
