I recommend that you watch this video.

Links for 10.27.08: Hope posters, Twitter rising, a Bowie cover…

*Hope and beyond: A delicious collection of images inspired by Shepard Fairey’s Barack Obama “Hope” poster. Includes: dope, nope, pope, hope, grope, type, marxism, viva!, soup, chope, mime, cope, rope, chaos, damn, fuck it, arab, dupe, honey, chump, dunk, and more. [obeygiant]

*Lazyblog request: Did the Cat Power cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” that appeared in that Lincoln commercial ever come out as a legit MP3? If so, could someone please send it to me? You and the rights holder will be properly remunerated. Regards. {Hello, Cat?}

*CMJ: Read The Daily Swarm’s rundown of New York Times coverage of CMJ over the years. The biggest disappointment for me is that 2009 was not included. [spincity]

*Interviews: Peefork interviews Randy Newman: “Don Henley is always teasing me, asking if I’ve written another little novelty song.” Short people, indeed.

*When Music Blogs Attack: Listening Post vs. Idolator. It’s like Kanye vs. 50 Cent, but without anyone falsely promising to retire. THE LISTENERD WILL RETIRE IF DEFEATED IN BLOGGING BY ANY MUSIC BLOGGER. [Also, who defends Boing Boing?]

*Microblogging: While you were sitting on the toilet, Twitter went mainstream. This is why I quit, people.

*Apps: Nabbit is an application that allows you to get info on songs playing on the radio by playing them into your cellphone. Or you can just work on your memories, people. I mean, really. [mashable]

*Metaphor: Stanley Fish on why Obama and McCain’s campaigns are like John Milton’s “Paradise Regained.” This is the kind of political analysis I could get into.

*Avoid: Black mead. At all costs.
