Links for 2.25.09: Lemmy’s crotch, bread tie taxonomy, Beamcast update..

*Podcast update: All attempts to contact Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam (not through traditional means, but merely through the ether) to get him to be my interview subject for the first listenerd podcast have failed. Zero response. However, I now have a 5th question formulated: Could you please speak up? More to come, as things develop.

*The Markets: Keep track of the world’s stock markets in real time. This can be a sad endeavour. [good]

*Lemmy: A lovely quote pulled by The Daily Swarm regarding Lemmy’s displeasure with a doll made in his likeness: “Are you gonna put a dick on it?”

*Update: The Hipster Runoff guy is not Tao Lin. I am in no way taking credit for this idea.

*Correlations: How one’s SAT scores correlate to his or her musical tastes. I do not see Elmo on this grid. [buzzfeed]

*Facebook: eMusic jumps into the widget game (a couple years after the rush?) with some Facebook functionality that allows users to show the music they’re listening to and gives away free downloads.

*Models: Mashable takes a look at iTunes Pass. There are a lot of “hopefullys” in this article.

*Charity: Musicians on Call brings bands to the hospital rooms of sick people, for bedside concerts. [licensing plate]

*Twitter: Twitter = YouTube. “Google most likely really, really wants to buy Twitter.” Feel like it’s been coming for a long time.

*Food: Being a taxonomy of bread ties. [coudal]

*I find this collection of links and quips to be wholly unsatisfying. There is always tomorrow.

Links for 5.22.08: Floyd’s pork, ?uestlove’s love, Rifflet’s allure…

*Crowdsourcing your way through musician’s block: Rifflet allows bands to post songs and encourage other musicians to finish them. [read write web]

*How much do you really want to know about Pink Floyd’s pig? Side note: I enjoy bacon.

*Who are the top 50 bands uploaded to Muxtape? The Rawking crunches it: 1) Radiohead, 2) MGMT, 43) Neutral Milk Hotel… Side note: I enjoy carrot flowers.

*Boy band discoverer Lou Pearlman got 25 years in the slammer for conspiracy and money laundering. [medialoper – who link blogs very well…]

*Byron Crawford notes that ?uestlove is eerily well-informed on matters pornographic. He begins a brief dissertation on Asian performers: “i was intrigued like most cats in the early 90s with Asia Carrera but since the tragedy with the death of her husband she has kept a relatively low profile in the past couple.”

*Video: Zach Galifinakis interviews Michael Showalter. Nice beard.

*Lemmy: The Movie. Lemmy is 62? [vicarious]

*Video: Best Buy video cameras capture an in-store dance party. [bb]

*Off topic: GOOD magazine does a round-up post on beards. They’re the new long hair. But on your face.

*ATTENTION: My love affair with Vodpod is over. THANK YOU.
