Links for 3.25.08: Subscription music, Muxtape, Loser Scholarship, Britney’s turn…

by Josh Kimball

*More subscription stuff: BMG is considering a subscription music option? [techmeme] Though old-school technology pundits douse subscription music “schemes” with haterade at their mere mention, I don’t think it’s that dumb a deal. As I’ve said perhaps too many times: As a lazy-ass consumer, I want to outsource the pain in the ass of managing files to someone else. Does access and control necessarily equal ownership? More.

*The mixtape website everyone is talking about: Muxtape.

*You can listen to and obtain a new Flight of the Conchords mp3 from Brooklyn Vegan, among other places. “Yis.”

*If you want to search for MP3s (but don’t want to eff around with Hype Machine): Mp3gle. [our digital music]

*Sub Pop’s Loser Scholarship gives $13k to loser high school senior musician wannabes. [getty images]

*10M people tuned into How I Met Your Mother to see Britney. She didn’t have a meltdown. [huffpo]

*Imeem opens up its API and becomes a “media platform.” [paidcontent]

*LOCAL: The Rock the Walker concert slated for the eponymous Minneapolis museum this June looks pretty damn good: New Pornographers, Bon Iver, Cloud Cult, Andrew Bird. [reveille via switchblade comb]

*I have a FriendFeed.
