the listenerd is physically ill

Note: The listenerd is physically ill right now, but will return in full force tomorrow. Unless something is horribly, horribly wrong. In which case this blog will simply go blank forever. OKOKOK. Some links. Consider this half force.

*Photos: Some dude has been sleevefacing the present. With the past. That sentence made sense. To like 8 people. Next up: Taking old photographs of family members and sleevefacing our own faces with those of our ancestors? [coudal]

*Nudity: The Swiss enjoy naked hiking (with fantastically hilarious picture). Have I told you about my own fondness for cold-air baths? I probably shouldn’t. Especially not in graphic detail.

*Retro-tech: Check out these cassette-themed envelopes. That little post-it note says “Now also in green.” Yup. 8 years of college German. In fact, one of the first things I ever published was a short story about liver noodle soup, written in German. I’m an idiot. [swissmiss]

*Picture: Look! An AIG executive wearing a Che t-shirt! Surely God will smite him for this transgression. [eyeteeth]

*Heavy metal: If you need a visual guide to Satan Fingers, how metal are you?

*Food: A Hamburger Today: A blog about hamburgers. I know one guy who can eat a double double in like a minute.

Links for 1.19.09: Podcasts, smash shacks and eating paste

*Podcasts: Whether you adore or deplore Hipster Runoff’s schtick, you’ll be able to tell just by listening that their new podcast is lovingly crafted. To wit: “You might know Hype Machine as a place where people go to steal MP3s slash find them on blogs.” Please give it a chance.

*Instruments: Yo-Yo Ma will be playing a CARBON-FIBER cello tomorrow. WHAT YEAR IS THIS, 3080?!?!?

*Fashion: Run DC, a t-shirt in the style of Run-DMC. [It was on BB, but what the hell?]

*Stress: Over on the Twin Cities Business blog, WHICH RUNS A DISGUSTING IMAGE OF MY LOATHSOME FACE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE, there’s an article we wrote about Sarah’s Smash Shack, a place that charges people to come in and smash things in order to relieve their stress. Discounts for senior citizens.

*Lists: Paste magazine tells us which albums we should consider getting excited about in 2009. Said list includes “Condo Fucks.” What? (Admission: I used to eat paste as a child.) [earfarm]

*Local: For the finest in music created by people this blogger works with, may I refer you to Hyder Ali? New music to download here.

Links for 6.4.08: Lemmy action figure, Last.fm expansion, Joy Division Zune…

*First and foremost: Lemmy has an action figure. [metalhammer]

*Last.fm in a box: The musical social network is syndicating. Think of it as a musical mega-widget.

*For the fashion impaired: The MP3 t-shirt. I have one Threadless t-shirt (an attempt to retain my “relevance”). It features a goat pinata. It does not play music.

*Meme watch: 2 girls, 1 birthday cake. Yum?

*Aaliyah’s uncle leaked the R. Kelly tape to Chicago journalist Jim Derogatis? I felt like a perv just typing that.

*Check out the Joy Division Zune design! Trying to figure out some kind of “known displeasures” wordplay.

*Pandora releases a desktop application. I left Pandora long ago, but I still think about it every few months or so.

*Lily Allen got very drunk the other night! At the Glamour Women of the Year Awards. Ms. Allen’s own take here. Confession: I also got drunk the other night. In my house. (No pics.)

*FanDoodle: How fans can get paid to distribute music via their blogs, email, etc. I’m no MBA, but: Low margins. [hypebot]

*Off topic: Ricky Gervais has a production blog for his forthcoming movie, “The Other Side of the Truth.” Also, here is video of Gervais and John Hodgman. Double the pasty! [videogum]

* Off topic: They make sneakers specially for the NBA finals? Celtics.com has KG specials. [complex]
