Links for 6.27.10: Summertime, and the abs are not so easily obtained

by Josh Kimball

*Anatomy: Rasputin’s penis has its own Wikipedia entry. Entry. Heh. [via]

*Religion: Dudes. The Swedenborgian national convention was held here last week. Please read up on Swedenborgianism, as there is no other religion in existence (not even Zoroastrianism) that is more fun to say aloud.

*Blogging: Of the book publishing industry and bloggers – Are readers the new mommies? (I write that sentence not with relish, but with sadness.)

*Covers: Watch this video (poor in quality) of Jeff Tweedy doing a cover of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” [vulture]

*Reading: “The Importance of Tweet Cred” from The National. The piece briefly outlines the usual Shirkian versus anti-Shirkian factions.

*Social media: If you’re still using Facebook, you may run into Neil Young. Making comments, liking statuses, and, I have to assume, poking people.

*Brands: Here’s an image of Mickey Mouse made out of bugs. It’s not as disgusting as it sounds. [neatorama]

*Cities: Is it possible to design your way toward more pleasant urban noise?

*Pride: Has everyone seen the album cover for the Scissor Sisters’ latest, “Night Work“?

*Twitter: Read these four links. Also, Mary Karr and Gary Louris are both tweeting. I guess.

*Note: I don’t really know where I’m going with the abs advice thing either.

*Today’s links: F.
