Remember when I said I wouldn’t be talking about that whole YouTube Soulja Boy thing anymore? Can we forget about that for a minute?

BET is holding a Soulja Boy dance-off. Please see rules and upload your video here (by October 17). And don’t forget to share your Soulja Boy cranking with the Listenerd. Thank you.

Tech / tunes links 8.15.07 – The Imposter

*I like the Crank That jumbotron – a LOT. (This is how I dance after 4.5 martinis.) Also, who even watches one YouTube vid at a time anymore? For me, it’s 3 simultaneously, minimum.
*EMI outsources its marketing to Saatchi & Saatchi.
*Nine Inch Nails’ new album Year Zero may be turned into a television series.
*The soundtrack for “The Darjeeling Limited,” Wes Anderson’s new movie, has been partially revealed. (I had no idea that cinematic soundtrack sleuthing was so competitive!)
*Virtual world creator Doppelganger scores $11M in venture capital funding. When I visited the Virtual Lower East Side (very early on), many more than half the “players” bumbling around in there were employed by either the VLES creators or the $ men. [via]
*Crave brings us this wonder: a Speak & Spell modded to work with an iPod.
*The New York Times writes about cellphone concert promotions; how text messaging and the Always On mentality have changed concerts. Band of Horses must be PISSED. Also: The article mentions the possibility of a Beyonce-themed phone…
*Live Nation is widgetizing. Bloggers and Facebookers will be able to put the LN widget on their page, where peeps can find concert info and buy tix from it. [via]
*Explore Dan Deacon’s soundboard – keyboards, mixers, huge glasses, a big gut and a shitload of buzzes, beeps and neon. Also: B(5). [via]

The Zwinky Dance

Ypulse correctly notes that Zwinky avatars have zero funk. (Admission: this is exactly how I dance. But only after 3 martinis.)
