Trisha’s Music Video of the Day: “Might Get Up Slow”

In the same vein as Punks Not Dad, I present to you No Small Children, composed of three schoolteachers from Los Angeles, California named Lisa Parade (lead singer, lead guitar), Nicola B. (drums), and Joanie Pimentel (bass). I totally love their look and sound, and I wish that I had the confidence that they seem […]

Lincoln’s Video of the Day: An Unexpected Parody

If you’re familiar at all with The Hillywood Show, you know that Hilly and Hannah Hindi, the pair of clever sisters behind it, make musical parodies skewering pop culture icons, always with surprisingly high production values. Well, even The Hobbit wasn’t safe from them. By combining it with one of the most obnoxious earworms of […]

Trisha’s Music Video of the Day: “Gangnam Style” by PSY

Yes, I know I’m a little late to this, but my recreational browsing has taken some hits recently and I haven’t been able to goof off on the Internet as much as I’d like to. I did finally get a chance to see one of the latest viral music videos to sweep my Facebook page; […]

Musical Taste Video of the Day: Banjo/Musical Saw Zelda Medley by Frontier Ruckus

So, I went to college with a few of the members of folk-rock band Frontier Ruckus and I have to say, I’m not at all surprised to see them showing their geek credentials. Check out this excellent medley of songs from The Legend of Zelda, primarily performed on banjo and musical saw.

Lincoln’s Video of the Day: Yep, it’s OK Go again

Musical Taste: The Hunger Games OST to go the Twilight route?

Say what you will about the Twilight films (I like to say they’re terrible, but that’s just me), but you have to admit that whoever put together the soundtrack albums to them knew what they were doing.

Musical Taste Review: Jonathan Coulton – Artificial Heart

Jonathan Coulton – Artificial Heart Jonathan Coulton has been around for a while now. Most people (including myself) first became aware of him with the end credits song for 2007’s Portal, though he had previously released multiple works, his 2006 project Thing A Week resulting in some of his best known songs. On his eighth […]
