Links for 4.30.08: Pink Floyd’s pig, Friday’s lack of pants, Hype Machine’s $$…

*Erockster is Clear Channel’s crack at online radio. I don’t know how to pronounce the endeavor. And that worries me. [digital music news]

*There is a rumor going around that Viacom wants to buy Hype Machine for $10M. I wonder if they know that people like Hype Machine for the stealing. [spin city]

*Lindsay Lohan will perform with Snoop Dogg on an upcoming album. I say this without any trace of snark or irony: I am looking forward to it. [buzzfeed]

*Radiohead isn’t into the whole “name your own price” thing any more. Also, they have given a song, All I Need, to a charity that fights human trafficking.

*Pink Floyd lost their inflatable pig, offered a $10,000 reward for it, then found it. This is the circle of life, pork style. [daily swarm]

*Off topic: Friday is No Pants Day. [laughing squid]

Links for 4.28.08: Muxtape talks, Shakira lobbies, Diablo Cody twitters…

*Apparently, Diablo Cody is twittering. And by that, I mean using the Web 2.0 application Twitter. What?

*Death Cab for Cutie records a session with Daytrotter. Also, see Death Cab’s viral video project. [universal music group]

*No love for subscription music?

*Listening Post interviews Justin Ouellette, the dude behind everyone’s favorite mixtape site, Muxtape. He looks like an internet guy.

*iTunes is five years old. I use iTunes as a music player and to sign up for free podcasts, but I won’t be buying any music from their any time soon. [daring fireball]

*WATCH: Interviews with heavy metal Satanists Venom – from the tweets of The Sound of Young America.

*Shakira talks education policy on NPR. [prawfsblawg]
