*Once, it took me almost 3 days to remember the title of a movie I’d seen – it was Barry Lyndon. I (Krapp’s Last Tape style) viewed (and still view) that singular mental failure as the beginning of my intellectual decline. Anyway, Red Ferret covers 7 sites that help you remember what song it is you’re thinking of.

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.

*What are the worst song lyrics of 2007? A sample from Big and Rich: “I see your momma and the candles and tears and roses.” Uh boy. [neatorama]

*Who had the most popular album of the year? Daughtry. WHAT? Additionally, Rolling Stone‘s top 100 songs of the year. #3 = Umbrella. [pop candy]

*Hannah Montana has added fourteen dates to her tour. Whew.

*T-mobile is blocking Twitter. Ugh.

*The A.V. Club goes after the worst band names of 2007. Some good ones (Butt Stomach, Those Fucking Unicorns, Gay Witch Abortion), but my all-time entry in the category holds firm: The Sweatpant Boners.

*Job watch: Cuts at Geffen Records. 60 people cut at Universal Music.

*Diablo Cody will start writing a column for Entertainment Weekly. [vulture]

*2 Guys, 1 Cup with John Mayer. (It’s safe for work.) [waxy]

*I admit it. I would like a pair of fake Chinese AXL Rose Converse high-tops. [metal sucks]

Links for 11.2.07: Public radio rawk, Movember, Mac-o-lantern’s +

*It is Movember. Grow your moustache for charity. Up next lunar cycle: Decembeard.

*NPR is pumping up its music coverage. I would like to go on record as saying that the grating earnestness of public radio rock talk show Sound Opinions makes it pretty much unlistenable. The end. [digital music news]
