Links for 12.15.09: Honest to God, don’t look at those embroidered pillows.

*Shows: Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer will be playing together at a run of concerts in Poland and the Czech Republic in June.

*Marketing: Seth Godin has compiled an ebook called “What Matters Now.” It’s made up of very short musings on apparently hot topics. The ones I’ve read have been bad, but the design is nice. And maybe some of them will be ok? Remember Squidoo? Ugh.

*Twitter: Read up on the top Twitter trends of 2009. Twitter’s trending topics was an atrocity. I derive much less joy out of the platform than I once did. It’s sad to say that.

*Stock stuffers: Warning, these embroidered pillows are SUPER dirty. Really; they’re NSFW. And that phrase before the colon there was sort of a euphemism, not a suggestion. Please; just don’t click on the link. [c-monster]

*Cessation: MC Frontalot uses Dungeons and Dragons to quit smoking. “Name your character. Mine’s Breathorr Inflatagon, a level 2 Lung Elf.” I have never played Dungeons and Dragons (not even once), but I have smoked about three cartons of cigarettes in my life. I don’t advise it. [waxy]

*Sports: Watch the top 10 hockey fights of the past decade. I do not condone fighting. Or hockey. [via a canadian, as it should be]

*Watch: The Fluid Piano is an acoustic instrument with microtonal tuning for every note. Sorry about the pre-roll ad. [coudal]

*Design: Check out these web services as seen through the aesthetic of retro manuals. That sentence may be gibberish now, but trust me on this one. There you go. Easy. [laughingsquid]

*Today’s links: F

Links for 4.30.09: White rappers, vinyl portraits, lanyards…

*Art: Check out these portraits of musicians drawn on vinyl Daniel Edlen. Reminds me of the “drawings” done with magnetic cassette tapes. [coudal]

*Hip-hop: Vulture writes up a history of white rappers. Remember Pete Nice? He’s on there. Probably my favorite rap name, due to its pleasantness.

*Blogs: Here’s my Dickens URLhttp://dickensurl.com/834a/Hes_tough_maamtough_is_J_B_tough_and_devilish_sly [presurfer]

*Hang: A Swine Flu poster on your wall? I thought I had SARS for a while. Also, anthrax. Years ago. (I’m not joking.) [eyeteeth]

*Lists: You will notice one blog that is NOT listed in the Hipster Handbook. My beard growing begins NOW. [shorties]

*Crafts: Sublime Stitching has made some of Daniel Johnston’s art into crafty needlepointy things. [pop candy]

*Fashion: Wear a lanyard with a rain hood on it. And thank me when you are complimented on it. Or thank baileygenine.

*Books: Gwyneth Paltrow reads Eric Carle. This is like the Arcade Fire being used for a “Where the Wild Things Are” trailer or something. Oh.Da
