Strangely enough, I just bought a best of Elton John album. Even stranger, I admitted doing so in a public forum.

*Privacy: Would you like to watch the devolution of Facebook privacy? It might depress you. Or make you feel empowered. If you’re weird.

*Facial hair: Urlesque points us toward Food Beard. Well played, Urlesque’s Eliot Glazer. Well played. (I recommend this site if you like food and are at least open to beards.)

*Read: David Bowie’s Playboy interview from 1976. “I always treated my boys like real ladies.” Pardon?

*Genres: A Turkish heavy metal fan discovered Twitter’s recent “accept bug.” [waxy, whom I have previously cited as indomitable]

*Communications: Listen to Radio Shack’s Musical Messages. Remember outgoing messages? Their existence depresses me. [coudal]

*Videos: Radar launches music videos. I didn’t even know that music videos were still a thing.

*Music: You can get some streaming Frightened Rabbit here. You can also stream yourself some Band of Horses here. Wait. When did this blog start to be about MUSIC?

*Gaming: Is there a drought in Farmville? In the match between Facebook and Zynga, the only loser is the public. And possibly either Facebook or Zynga. But the public for sure.

*Names: If you are not familiar with the rapper Shorty Shitstain, you should be. Loosely associated with some of the guys from the Wu-Tang Clan, he has a name that brightens my day. Every day. Sometimes I wake up and just look at it. [cracked] [Yes, I just via’d Cracked.]

*Album covers: If you would like to see some classic hip-hop album covers recreated in Legos, click this HYPERLINK. I like the EPMD one. [coudal]

*Christmas: Frightened Rabbit is rereleasing a little Christmas cheer in the form of special holiday music. More importantly, they are being quotable. “I feel like I have a similar relationship with Christmas as I do with booze. Each make me feel nice in a fairly false way.”

*Reselling: An oldish story, but I’m finally linking to it – Should you be able to sell used MP3s? [tlp]

*Movies: You can watch a clip of the Mickey Rourke film “The Wrestler” here. I consider myself hideous, but this guy…

*Graphs: I hated myself for enjoying this graph. Now I’m going to try to cheer myself up by watching “Hotel Rwanda.” (Not kidding about that. F you Netflix.)

*Economics and pubic hair: One of my colleagues pointed me toward a recent article on Salon that says pubic hair is back in. She then suggested that the “Bush line” may be the new “lipstick index.” This is why work can sometimes be tolerable. Well, this and the ability to pay bills.
