Video: Moby’s “Ooh Yeah” music video looks like pornography

Yet another entry in the long line of videos or movies alluding to pornography.

Links for 10.3.08: In what respect, Charlie?, Andre 3k and MORE

*Phrases: “In what respect, Charlie?” is this year’s “Heckuva job, Brownie.” I have zero doubt about this. Zero. This is a STRONG BUY. Buzzfeed that, mfers.

*Punk: Moby goes punk with the help of a Craigslist ad. Remember when he did that song with Gwen Stefani? Good. Effing. Times.

*Fashion: Andre 3000 gets into the clothing business, and the New York Times is there. Of the fashion line, the Gray Lady says “It looked like Ralph Lauren having a Steampunk moment.” I misread that as “Steampunk movement” the first time I saw it.

*Metal: I love it when Metal Sucks gets all political and impassioned and shit.

*Correspondence: It seems like Dear Assholes could be a popular and potentially lucrative sub-genre of passive-aggressive letter all on its own. (I have written at least three of this type of letter.) Note to self: Follow up on this if/when you are unemployed.

*Saramago: I previously mentioned Blindness – a film adaptation of a book by Nobel-winning novelist Jose Saramago (whose “The History of the Siege of Lisbon” should be required reading for anyone in the editorial profession). It now comes to my attention that blind people hate Blindness and that the first 5 minutes of the film are now available online.

*Personalization: Idiomag a personalized music magazine, based on your taste in music from such services as Last.fm, Pandora, iLike and a few more. What, the listenerd isn’t good enough for you?

Really?

Effers? [readwriteweb]

Links for 5.10.08: Last.fm Presents, Tap Tap Revolution, Apple goes gaming?…

*Last.fm Presents: Video interviews with musical acts, starting with Moby, Santogold, Spoon and Joshua Radin.

*Tap Tap Revolution: It’s like DDR for your iPhone. [neural]

*PopMatters collects pro-Barack Obama songs from around the world. Take that, Will.i.Am.

*The Zappa family is putting out Wazoo, a 2-disc concert album. [getty images]

*You can buy a 12-foot guitar for $6500 on eBay. [boingboing]

*Clear Channel’s revenues were up 4% in Q1 over least year. (Billboards up, radio down.) [paid content]

*TapeDeck App: An audio recorder for Mac OS X Leopard. Also: it looks like a cassette tape deck. [daring fireball]

*Will Apple tackle a gaming console next? (Seems like a stretch.) [crave]

*Will Pownce come out with a music player next? It would take a lot to get me to try using Pownce again.

*Holy mp3 player! Check out the crucifix-shaped Keo MP-301. [crave]

*If you haven’t done it in a while, I recommend checking out the “Stronger Sightings” section of Kanye’s blog.

*I think this would be a good day to tell you again how much I can’t stand 1-800-Flowers. OK, goodbye.

Links for 4.24.08: Chocolate anniversary, 30 Rock’s uncanny valley, Wii pole dancing…

*Fergie sings the theme for the new “Sex and the City” movie. The Playlist abhors it.

*Minneapolite Tay Zonday is celebrating the one-year (WTF?) anniversary of “Chocolate Rain” with an album of techno remixes (again, WTF?). [urlesque]

*IsMichaelArringtonaDick.com. [Fimoculous]

*Anti-music discovery vs. pro-music discovery [duke listens!]

*Wow. Threadless and Moby are working together to beg people to design Moby t-shirts? [listening post]

*The Rhythmic Desktop BeatBox: Making mad beats from dumb office noises. [neural.it]

*On connecting a Wii to a stripper pole. [adverlab]

*OK: 30 Rock just dropped the concept of “the uncanny valley” on millions of U.S. homes. Thank you.
