Links for 5.20.09: Ramsay, Cutlery, Sam Beam, meat eating, pigeons…

*Podcasts: If you want to see the guy with the huge beard who refuses to do a podcast with me (his name is Sam Beam and his band is Iron and Wine), check out this video, for the song “Love Vigilantes.” I will now recommence crying into my cupped hands.

*Belief: What will your grandchildren be embarrassed you did or believed in? Circumcision? Self-medicating? Meat eating? [waxy]

*Graphics: The Daily Swarm’s commentary on Project Playlist acquiring Total Music. A pile of fecal matter. Steaming.

*Like, art: Do you want to see a pigeon going down a drain? From an exhibit called “The Space Between.” I once ran over a large goose while driving at night and it was extraordinarily sickening and depressing. FYI. [eyeteeth]

*Television: Everything Tracy Jordan ever said in season three of “30 Rock.” [urlesque]

*Videos: The Cold War Kids have an interactive music video called “I’ve Seen Enough” out. I remember when music videos were on on tv. And, like, had chicks. Dancing. And shit. [fimoculous]

*Architecture: The world’s architecture rendered in Legos. I once built a tower straight up, reaching toward the sky. Minutes later it was destroyed by the capricious whim of a two-year-old child. This is how one learns patience.

*Ideas: Eat Me Daily explores the idea of a Grand Unification Theory of Cutlery. Also highly recommended, Gordon Ramsay Swears at You. (Push the button on his head. The red one.)

*Today’s links: D. I’m a little worried about Lyrical_Miracle. He’s been suspiciously quiet lately….

Links for 5.8.08: Bob Seger tattoos, Gravy’s B.I.G. performance, Dave Grohl’s angry letter…

*Your online repository for all Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band-related tattoos. [Hotdogsladies]

*”Gravy is killin’ it.” P. Diddy on the performance of the actor playing Biggie in his upcoming biopic.

*Dave Grohl writes a letter to Metallica: “Good luck. And don’t release it until it’s kick-ass.”

*Mobile music revenue is down 17.6% for WMG.

*How do you slap someone around with a Blackberry? Ask Foxy Brown. [nah right]

*Video: Rock Band hates this man. Watch it. [waxy]

*Perez Hilton is launching a clothing line. Pretty sure I couldn’t pull any of this stuff off, either.

*Also: Britney loves Radiohead. Weird that she didn’t go with the digital, pay-what-you-want version?

*If you still love Facebook, you can stream your iTunes playlist through it via nuTsie. [listening post]

*DMX got arrested for speeding. Woof!

*Local (Minneapolis): First Ave is twittering. [switchblade comb]

*30 Rock quote: Lemon: “You had a three-way with Roseanne and Tom Arnold.” Blonde chick: “That was two years ago.”

*Facestats: The world thinks I’m 42 years old.

Links for 5.3.08: Soundamus’ recos, spam’s anniversary, Santogold’s vomit…

*Soundamus recommends upcoming music releases based on your Last.fm data. After 12 minutes, I still don’t know what it wants me to listen to. [waxy]

*Tech: The story of spam. It’s 30 years old! [3 quarks daily]

*Techish: Anti-YouTube site Hulu has a channel on YouTube. A 30 Rock clip from said. [watching tv online]

*OK: RCRD LBL is pushing the Santogold. WordPress said they were going to kick me off if I didn’t say it. (Update: WTF? Did wordpress just auto-correct my lack of midcap in the word WordPress in the previous sentence?? YES!)

*HIPSTER RUNOFF on the Dan Deacon live experience: “Others say that Dan Deacon concerts are breeding grounds for organisms born out of the sweat of heavy-set men, overbearing 17-year-old female indie music fans, and greasy bros who like the crappy kind of electronic music.” With graphs! What’s with all the all-caps sites?

*Is the packaging of Beck’s 8-bit release “experimental” or just blurry? [spin city]

Links for 4.24.08: Chocolate anniversary, 30 Rock’s uncanny valley, Wii pole dancing…

*Fergie sings the theme for the new “Sex and the City” movie. The Playlist abhors it.

*Minneapolite Tay Zonday is celebrating the one-year (WTF?) anniversary of “Chocolate Rain” with an album of techno remixes (again, WTF?). [urlesque]

*IsMichaelArringtonaDick.com. [Fimoculous]

*Anti-music discovery vs. pro-music discovery [duke listens!]

*Wow. Threadless and Moby are working together to beg people to design Moby t-shirts? [listening post]

*The Rhythmic Desktop BeatBox: Making mad beats from dumb office noises. [neural.it]

*On connecting a Wii to a stripper pole. [adverlab]

*OK: 30 Rock just dropped the concept of “the uncanny valley” on millions of U.S. homes. Thank you.

30 Rock drops another Lemon Party reference

Maybe it was a rerun, but it’s still funny. (Don’t ask.)
