Links for 1.19.09: Podcasts, smash shacks and eating paste

by Josh Kimball

*Podcasts: Whether you adore or deplore Hipster Runoff’s schtick, you’ll be able to tell just by listening that their new podcast is lovingly crafted. To wit: “You might know Hype Machine as a place where people go to steal MP3s slash find them on blogs.” Please give it a chance.

*Instruments: Yo-Yo Ma will be playing a CARBON-FIBER cello tomorrow. WHAT YEAR IS THIS, 3080?!?!?

*Fashion: Run DC, a t-shirt in the style of Run-DMC. [It was on BB, but what the hell?]

*Stress: Over on the Twin Cities Business blog, WHICH RUNS A DISGUSTING IMAGE OF MY LOATHSOME FACE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE, there’s an article we wrote about Sarah’s Smash Shack, a place that charges people to come in and smash things in order to relieve their stress. Discounts for senior citizens.

*Lists: Paste magazine tells us which albums we should consider getting excited about in 2009. Said list includes “Condo Fucks.” What? (Admission: I used to eat paste as a child.) [earfarm]

*Local: For the finest in music created by people this blogger works with, may I refer you to Hyder Ali? New music to download here.
