Links for 11.15.08: Kanye’s anti-rant, monetizing P2P, Obama art…

*Kanye: Kanye brings the rhetoric in an open letter calling out the haters. He never made out with Rihanna. And I like how he explains his punctuation choices at the end. (I really do.)

*Visual arts: Sound Wave is a crashing wave of vinyl. From 2007, but how have I not seen this before? Have I seen this before? [neural]

*Ideas: Music Think Tank ponders the possibilities of monetizing P2P filesharing. Maybe you could add your ideas instead of being such a negative asshole all the time. Oops, that was supposed to be internal monologue.

*Politics: As you may have heard, Barack Obama’s weekly radio addresses will be put up on YouTube. (I wonder if there’s any way they could show a nearly static video of an old-timey radio while the sound plays in these things.) Here’s the video of the first address.

*Also: For Obama-inspired art, check out the Obama Art Report. This is sort of weird. [largehearted boy]

Links for 8.19.08: Sparking iPods, Dirt McGirt Rap Snacks, Muxtape’s woes…

*You need to read about punctuation; or do I need to? (See what I did with the ; there?) (And the parentheses there?) And there! [coudal]

*Lady news: Tough times. Flight of the Conchords’ Jemaine Clement is now off the market. He got married. Best of luck in your future endeavours.

*Law: The RIAA pulls the plug on Muxtape.

*Apple: Overheating iPod Nanos (with sparks!) have Japanese officials investigating safety concerns.

*Consumerism: Complex rounds up its list of pointless hip-hop-endorsed products. Wait a second. I love Dirt McGirt Rap Snacks.

*Playing: Learn to play guitar the Music 2.0 way, with Songsterr, an application that combines music files with Flash video, allowing wannabe musicians to see and hear how to play. [techcrunch]

*Consumer electronics: Who would not want an MP3 player that looks like the Bird’s Nest stadium? [crave] Or, see the Bird’s Nest in Lego’s. [urlesque]

*Ringtones: A song that repeats the clever lyrics “Condom, Condom” is apparently all the rage among ringtone enthusiasts.

*For all your twitter following needs: A wiki of semi-famous people on twitter. (Patrick Wilson of Weezer?)
