Links for 10.9.09: Bombing the moon, bros, and DUDE we BOMBED the MOON!!!11

*Events: Kind of a big day today. We bombed the moon and Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. Also, WE BOMBED THE FUCK OUT OF THE MOON!!!

*Photography: Who wants to see pictures of flies peeing? As a kind of break from all the excitement. [eyeteeth]

*Literature: The Brocyclopedia – “‘Broseph’ was originally a term reserved for a bro or bra named “Joseph,” but the broseph has since evolved into an entirely separate sub-category of bro.” The funny thing is, this isn’t some McSweeney’s Dave Eggers bullshit. It’s cultural history. Or so I currently feel like claiming.

*Movies: David Wyatt writes in the Virginia Quarterly Review about “Star Wars and the Productions of Time.” On the Luke-Han continuum, I am indifferent and embarrassed to even know that much. [harper’s]

*Beer: Read this interview with the most interesting man in the world. The guy from the Dos Equis beer commercials.

*Recession: Guys with mustaches make more money than dudes with beards or clean-shaven men. I have been unable to sustain a mustache for longer than a half hour at any point in my life due to the overwhelming pressures of normal society. [huffpo]

*Local: Har Mar Superstar has to be one HELL of a partier, because he somehow has projects going. Still. And knows people. And WHAT? He’s writing a movie with Ellen Page. I will point out to those unfamiliar with this blog that Har Mar Mall is my local mall and say further that the pet store there smells like a dead body in a dumpster full of Chinese food that your co-worker made for lunch two days ago. Or worse.

*Punctuation: ;

*Today’s grade: Stay of execution. No American blog post fails today, since we bombed that God damn moon back to where it fucking belongs. SPACE.


Video: Juno’s Ellen Page sings “Zub Zub”


Links for 1.8.08: Posh’s duds, Juno’s tunes, Hannah Montana’s double…

*The listenerd visited the Virtual Lower East Side just after launching and found it very empty. This New York Times writer finds a similar experience. (And why in the world is this filed in the Television section of the Times?)

*Juno actors Ellen Page and Michael Cera release iTunes playlists optimized for bloggers: CocoRosie, Brendan Benson, BSS, Beulah. Social Media Marketing lesson #564. Check them at The playlist.

*Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has topped Mr. Blackwell’s Worst Dressed of 2007 List. Congrats. (Listenerd fave Fergie also made the list!) [huff po]

*JupiterResearch projections say European digital music sales increases will offset physical sales’ losses by 2010. [paid content]

*Seth Godin (I’m hot and cold on him) comments on the music business: Not entirely against subscription. AHA!

*FYI: Ice Cube is planning on wearing a mohawk for his role in the forthcoming A-Team movie as B.A. Baracus. [cinematical]

*Hannah Montana uses a body double? [daily swarm]

*Read: MuSick in the Head’s Music 2.0 predictions for this year: “Apple launches a subscription music service.” I LIKE IT.
