What should be checked off your holiday gift list for others: Daft Punk – Tron: Legacy OST: […]

Trisha’s (Long) Video of the Day: “Runaway” by Kanye West (NSFW, lyrics)

I am not an ardent fan of hip hop by any stretch of the imagination, but I do appreciate it when something a hip hop artist does is neat, cool, or utterly mad. I’d say that this maxi-music video from Kanye West, featuring “Runaway” and other tracks from his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted […]

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: When Webber pulled a Lucas

Let me also point out that the Phantom sounds like a petulant child. Let’s compare some of his lines from the original: “Floating, falling, sweet intoxication/Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation.” Yeah, it’s a bit Chester the Molester, but at least he’s trying to be sexy. (And he could be pretty funny, too, especially […]

East Lansing’s Geeked Out Weekend

This weekend was a strange one. I still live in the same town where I attended university. Michigan State is a fairly well-known school and because of this we have a lot of events that happen here. Broadway shows, famous scientists, well-known authors….not always a huge surprise. This weekend, on the other hand, had two […]

Musical Taste: Daft Punk, Kid Cudi and Tom Waits

Recently, we discussed the upcoming Daft Punk-scored Tron: Legacy. Well, it appears that we’ll have to wait a little longer before we get to hear their dark, dancey tunes. According to Pitchfork, the soundtrack has been pushed back from its original November 22 release date to December 7. However, if you head over to the […]

Jill’s Video of the Day: The Doctor and I

It is no surprise to anyone that I often end up in odd kinds of youtube loops: Cake Decorating, Rats Swimming, etc… well, today I found myself at first in a Sweeney Todd loop, which led to a Sondheim loop, which led to a John Barrowman loop which led me to this: It’s like all […]

Musical Taste Link of the Day: Tron: Legacy Soundtrack getting closer

So. Tron: Legacy. Ever since it was announced that genius electronica musicians Daft Punk were doing the soundtrack, we’ve dealt with a steady stream of fake music attributed to them. It looks like that time is over. While the website doesn’t do much yet (except play a fantastic bit of the score) there is a […]

Musical Taste: CeeLo Green, the hit of the summer, and the Rebuttal

So if you’ve somehow missed it, over the last couple of weeks, a new single from R&B artist, CeeLo Green, has been taking the internet by storm. The song goes by the moniker “Fuck You” and is an awesomely NSFW throwback to early Motown. Initially, there was just a simple video for the song, the […]

Musical Taste Video of the Day: This Gigantic Robot Kills by MC Lars

I grew up in the 90s, and accordingly, have a soft spot for ska music. You know, you start with a typical punk song and then all of a sudden, the horns kick in and everyone is skanking (the dance, not the….well I don’t even know how you’d verb the other thing). So when I […]

Trisha’s Video of the Day: “Africa” by Toto with rain sound effects

Considering what happened last Friday on Questionable Content by Jeph Jacques, I thought this a rather appropriate video to view heading into this week’s strips: Perpetuum Jazzile is a Slovenian jazz choir which was founded in 1983. You can download some of their music at their site, and I strongly urge you to check out […]
