Links for October 15, 2011:

*Listicles: Defective Yeti determines his own blood alcohol level based on what he’s wearing when he wakes up after a night of drinking.

*Transmedia: Forget the Tumblr-turned-book deal. It’s time for the comment-turned-screenplay. A Reddit comment has lead to a screenwriting deal. (The comment was based around the question, What if U.S. Marines were transported back in time to fight Roman legions?)

*Photography: When I say “throwable panoramic ball camera,” does your brain accidentally translate it into “throw up” and then a string of some other words that don’t matter nearly as much as throw up does? Mine does. Mine does. [via notcot]

*Music: Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore have split up. What will now happen to the band is unclear.

*Walking backwards: Hull, Wisconsin is considering banning bicycles and pedestrians from its streets. Shouldn’t we get past the day and age when people discriminate against cyclists and move directly to publicly torturing roller bladers? [via treehugger]

*Mashups: Horn Bike is a bike mount-cum-amplifier for your iPhone. In some ways I fear that this would make texting while biking TOO easy. Also, Etsy comes to the fixie crowd with this bike planter. If only you could give a bicycle a beard. OMG, get an easily completed online business plan form!

*Today’s links: Fudge.

Links for 1.18.08: Notflixing, GH3’s boost, Big Superpoking bucks…

*Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has recorded a soundtrack for a pornographic film, Extra Action (And Extra Hardcore). Ba-dang-daaaaaannng. [listening post]

*SuperPoking: more value than I ever dreamed. Facebook widget-making startup Slide has been valued at $500M. SEEMS LIKE A LOT. [giga om]

*The ‘nerd reported previously that Nate Dogg had suffered a stroke. Now comes news that he’s partially paralyzed. [earsucker]

*Guitar Hero III and Rock Band have helped move more than 7 million songs online since their release at the end of last year. [getty images]

*Rumor: Is Yahoo going to buy FoxyTunes? (I stopped using F-tunes a few months ago, but very interesting!) [muSick in the head]

*MP3 player to watch: The Insignia Pilot. [popgadget]

*Neologism watch: Notflixing (mailing back DVDs received from Netflix without watching them) and Waitflixing (moving movies lower and lower on your queue without getting them). [pop candy]

MORE WORDS: More on “yo.”

*Deja vu: The Cassette MP3 Player works as a standalone MP3 player, and also can be played when inserted into a cassette deck. If you can find a cassette deck. [geekologie]
