the listenerd has recorded a video podcast!

Hello. I have done the unthinkable. I have taken a bunch of sedatives and recorded a VIDEO PODCAST (OR VLOG). Please consider this a beta release. I hope you find it as soothing as I do. Did.

Links for 10.17.08: Yeezy’s ganking, Girl Talk’s vlogging, Russell’s hustling…

*The Annals of Ganking: Yeezy (Mr. Kanye West) has been accused of ganking content from NYMag blog Vulture. Next thing you know that fucker will be tumbling without vias. (Huh?) [bossip]

*Vlogging: Girl Talk has a YouTube channel set up for their (his?) current tour. Each video is made up of parts taken from dozens of other video bloggers. (Not really.) [peefork]

*Politics: Spanish socialists have adopted Eddie, the Iron Maiden mascot, as their own. [metal sucks]

*Speculation: The Facebook Music talk kicks up again. (I only go to Facebook for the drunken photographs. And the hilarious virtual gifts.) [mfr]

*Hip-hop: The Economist profiles Russell Simmons. Of his own Rush Card – a way for the unbanked to handle monetary transactions without getting an account – Mr. Simmons says, “This card is meant to get people laid, get them feeling dignity.” Funny. [licensing plate]

*Sustainability: How are musicians going green? Plenty says they’re using biodiesel busses, solar-powered studios, guitars made from sustainably harvested materials, and using soy ink. I don’t know why they didn’t mention Cloud Cult. [largehearted boy]

*Worth it for the headline: “Is It Just Us Or Does J.J. Abrams ‘Star Trek Look Laughable & Retarded?” The headline was too good; I didn’t read on. [the playlist]

*Twitter: Qwitter lets you know when you have been unfollowed. (I mostly quit twitter – and committed twitticide even – a while ago. I don’t even know why.) [waxy]

*Local: The New York Times on law-and-order loving Minneapolites Atmosphere, who played the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza recently:

“Slug, the group’s verbose rapper, noticed something. Two fans, engaged in a shoving match, were causing a commotion on the floor. ‘Stop the song,’ Slug advised his band, before addressing the troublemakers. ‘Just separate yourselves, like bad kids at the party.'”

Links for 9.24.08: MySpace music launch, Sigur Ros, Bono sucks! vlog…

*Music: MySpace Music launches tonight. I defriended Tom, everyone. It was time. [daily swarm]

*OH NICE: Sigur Ros has a vlog? Watch it. There are small, non-motorized vehicles involved. [the slut]

*Mainstream media: The Houston Press digs chicks at music festivals. Overtly, no less! [digg]

*Organs: Is a 27-year-old one of the best to EVER play the organ? Personally, I like the guy at the Metrodome who does the Gary Glitter stuff. Chipper!

*Celebrity: Wired’s Listening Post reviews celebrity bands. A few notes: if you are not INTO celebrities, please don’t wander aimlessly into this realm. To begin with, no KEVIN BACON? 2nd: It is 30 ODD FOOT OF
GRUNT
(not GRUNTS!). GAWD. [earfarm]

*U2: Bono and Sarah Palin didn’t meet today, despite a scheduled appointment. Sad. For anyone who hates to see the forces of evil all marshaled in one place. (Not sure.)

*Politics: If you wish to stay informed, read this point / counterpoint regarding Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

*Copy: GooseGrade is a widget for blogs that allows readers to submit copyediting corrections.

Readers – if you exist – please know that clean copy (on this blog) is not my specialty. Because I usually write these two-line bullets after heavy drinking.

Also, if you click through on the GooseGrade link above you will find a promo video of Vampire Weekend singing “I Stand Corrected,” which sounds a little Walkmen-like to me.

Speaking of which, here’s an interview with The Walkmen. [buzzfeed]

Links for 11.4.07: Ozzy’s ire, Stewie’s songs, Sex Pistols’ candidate +

*North Dakota cops staged a fake pre-party at an Ozzy concert to bust a bunch of people with outstanding warrants, and now Ozzy is pissed. [idolator]

*Bloggers try to see a Sex Pistols endorsement of presidential candidate Ron Paul in their Tonight Show appearance together. [mefi]

*The New York Times waxes rhapsodic about the showtunes on The Family Guy. Uh boy.

*Bono + vlogging (for MSNBC) = worst nightmare. [huff po]

*Audio + transcript of a David Simon (The Wire) interview, via commenter Mr. Media.

*Behold: the light saber mp3 player (aka the Music Stick). [crave]
