In case you missed it, Baddiel and Skinner have a world cup podcast here, it's very entertaining (when Frank is talking) they are in South Africa so it's nice to get a bit of atmosphere. The Guardian's World Cup Daily is obviously very good too here. And lastly this is a great timetable to save in your bookmarks
I still have a lot of time for Kanye, for one it seems like Jay Z came back and told us he was great and he was doing an anti autotune song that was vital etc, where as Kanye just does it, let's the song speak for itself put simply. I like how this song hints at a M.I.A/Yesayer/African/worldy vibe, opens up some nice possibilities for the album.
