Tenacious D Hath Returneded

I’m not 100% sure how I feel, but I hope for fantastic shenanigans.  They have had a few really good songs in the past, but it has been some time.  Do they still have it?  I suppose we will know in May.  You can listen to a song from the album on their website and the video is there as well.  I hope that there is some amazingness in this.  I have been disappointed too many times by comedians that find hollywood and end up losing what made them funny(Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, to name a couple)  I remember when they were funny and now….. bleh..  Sorry to anybody that still subscribes to their humor.

 

Night.

The Motherf***ing Pterodactyl

Hilarious video by the oatmeal

Regina Spektor

I suppose it may just be a musicky kind of day.  I currently find myself listening to the voice of Ms. Regina Spektor.  She is a Russian-born singer with a fantastic voice and ahem personality.  She has many different sounds in her music.  They range anywhere from exuberant to fun to melancholy.  So here are  a few of her songs.  Do enjoy.  She has a new album coming out in about 6 months.  I look forward to it.  I hope she goes on tour and ends up in the Midwest.  She seems like she would put on an entertaining show.  Good Night!

 

 

Immigrant Song

As redone by Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Karen O. Not too bad in my opinion. Enjoy

Probably the best music video ever

The lyrics are pretty complex but the video makes up for it.  Big Bag Wolf by Duck Sauce.  Enjoy

Geek Music

I am a geek.  I know this.  I also like music.  So it is always refreshing when the two combine.  There are a few musicians that are geeks as well, at least openly.  One of my faves is MC Chris.  He is pretty amazing and captures my love for Star Wars and Robotussin all in one fell swoop.  I just heard about a new nerd rapper though through a tweet by Nathan Fillion.  Turns out this geek rapper has made an entire album of Firefly-themed rap songs.  Even better yet, it is completely FREE right HERE.  I have heard two of the songs and they are pretty fun and do a decent job capturing what Firefly is about.  So here are a few of my fun geek music videos that I like.  Do enjoy. If I missed one, TELL ME.  This was quick and probably poorly thought through.  Please tell me some of your favorites


Not sure if this counts.. but I’m making it.  To help it is a DBZ version of Particle Man by TMBG….

 

A Bit of Stuff From the Last Six Days

I was doing really good about the blog posts for a little bit there, we all were counting down to see how long it would last weren’t we?  So here is a huge jumbled mess of what I have been busy contemplating making blogs about.  I suppose I could go ahead and script out separate blogs for them but that may make too much sense. Shiny Object!

Fun stuff, I may get to do a radio show on the 15th.  I have  a friend who believes in my geekiness and wants me to come and play around on the radio show with him and another guy and have some grand ol geeky news and fun music time.  Hope it turns out to be as fun as it could be.  Pretty neat thing to just fall into my lap.  Not nearly as neat as a good friend of mine who just doubled his income, but I will get to double my.. um.. audience?  Take it from 3 people to 6.  Ha!  It’s a joke, see.  It’s also funny because it is true, see.  Right?!

The other day I got home from work and was enjoying some relax time with the family.  My 3 year old comes up and asks me, “Daddy, can I play with your phone?”  I tell him sure and watch him wander off.  He wanders over directly to mommy and asks her, “Mommy, can I play with your phone pleeeeeeease?”  She also consents to allow him said privilege.  So he sits at the end of the couch with an Android phone in each hand.  With one hand he opens up YouTube and starts listening to the old school Batman theme song and the Spongebob Squarepants theme song.  With the other hand he has opened up a puzzle application and is doing puzzles.  It warmed the cockles of my heart to see him geeking out.

Gamers have done it again!  This is a few days old as well, but the other day gamers around the world DID IT AGAIN.  I say again due to THIS post by Mr. Frank Bishop.  First the FoldIt game where they helped further a potential cure for retroviruses like HIV.  Now they have helped scientists go through heaps of data and find 2 planets that should be able to sustain life.  WOOT!  So yeah.  Gamers are cooler than nerds.  Or something to that effect anyway.  Their problem solving skills are win.

Another one I found humorous.  The Westboro idiots have been planning to protest Steve Jobs’ funeral.  They posted the following on Twitter.  For iPhone.  Idiots.

Thought that this was funny.

Scientists may have found a way to cure diabetes using dead babies stem cells.  Just involves a simple needle to the brain.  Not so bad, right?  Read about it HERE!
Did I mention that I really did that website Dvice.com?

Also, I realize I sometimes don’t analyze things as thoroughly as I should, but this just seems like something I should have realized awhile back.  I should have realized that Captain America was everything that Hitler could have ever wanted.  He was the perfect Aryan soldier that we made to take Hitler down.  Never realized that nice little bit of irony there.  Like so many great stories, the one thing that you truly want is that which will take you down.
Like comedian Tim Minchin, I wouldn’t mind having my lady suffer from neck-down alopecia.  Hell sometimes I even wouldn’t mind not having to deal with all the hair.  But what about people that have alopecia everywhere including their faces.  Do you think ay of them have ever thought of using a merkin as a goatee?  Seems perfectly reasonable to me.  How about you?

I think that somebody should make a Joker tribute video done to this song……

Now you can use your families’ remains to avenge their deaths!

Lastly for now, have you ever heard of the Thatcher effect?   It is creepy.

Hope you enjoyed my pent up randomness.  Was it as good for you as it was for me?  Well until next time.  Oh and I did get some writing done the other day though.  You will just have to wait to see what it was though…
