Links for 7.27.08: Emo bans in Russia, clown walking, Lego album covers…

*Nostalgia mash: 20 classic album covers recreated in Legos. (Lovely Legoized Aphex Twin cover!) [music slut]

*Culture: Russia may outlaw emo culture (dress, websites, etc.). Why did Mexico not think of this? [thedailyswarm]

*Dancing: You must learn how to C-Walk if you want to win friends. And influence people. (Featuring lovely how-to videos!) [mefi]

*Telephony: Phoning It In has posted their entire archive of telephonic performances, including some from Petra Haden, Poison Control Center, Jens Lekman. Lovely? [largehearted boy]

*Punk Princesses: Silicon Alley Insider does the math on the supposed mint (around $2M) YouTube owes Avril Lavigne for all those “Girlfriend” (and other) plays.

*Question and Answer: Why do chicks dig musicians? The answer is based on SCIENCE. [medialoper]

*Off-topic video: College Humor collects the Top 10 eye-gouging scenes in cinema. I have no idea why, but my father took me to see Blade Runner in the theater when it first came out (I was 8 years old at the time of its release). That double-thumb eye-gouge not only was the point at which we left the theater, it has also doggedly haunted my dreams ever since. [waxy]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Links for 5.5.08: Cyrus’ tweens, dating indie chicks, Bach’s back…

*Dating the women of indie rock. The cons of dating Ms. Cat Power: “Is crazy. Emotional volatility means that she requires higher maintenance than a Volkswagen Jetta.” [jim ray]

*Holy fucking awesome: The Black Oven is a heavy metal cooking blog. [getty images]

*You have most likely heard: The Slip = more freebies from NIN.

*Tweens don’t really care about Miley Cyrus’ naked back appearing on Vanity Fair, says Ad Age. [ypulse]

*Sebastian Bach is going emo. Previously, as you may recall, he went hip-hop on MTV.

*Ars weighs in with kind of a non-story about Merlin, the virtual 5th major music label, and its 12,000 indie acts. The one nugget: it’s working with MySpace on the social network’s coming music offering.

*Universal Music Group buys AbsolutePunk? How long until Merlin comes around offering the listenerd $2/post?

*The Deftones are blogging. [vicarious]

*RUMOR: Scott Stereogum is really still running Stereogum. Also: Bat Boy Gives Birth to 100-year-old Martian (or similar Weekly World News headline). [daily swarm]

*Off topic: Sorry I missed your party. The opposite of Cobrasnake. How many other opposite sites are out there just waiting to be created? [buzzfeed]

*Off topic: I like both Twitter and Someecards. [laughing squid]
