Just in case the Picard Song didn’t torture you enough, Chris thought this would be appropriate additional torture. Or, at the very least, payback for exposure to the Picard Song.
Bill Bailey, who you may remember as the voice of the whale in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Bilbo, the comc shop owner from Spaced* or Manny, the beard with an idiot attached from Black Books*, exposes the sham that is U2 in this very funny YouTube clip.
*If you don’t recognize these shows, you need to watch more British TV. Just saying.
Another brilliant Literal Music Video, just as the Literal Take On Me, posted previously. This time it’s Billy Idol’s White Wedding. Someone needs to do a Literal Black Hole Sun.
An all-time favorite music video, and a song you may not have stumbled across before. A truly great one.
Without a Face is a Houston based one-man whose new tune “Nickelcrap” accurately channels the idiocy and douche-laden shittiness of Nickelback, with some more literally lyrics. Tremendous stuff. Hit the link below for the interview, if you want to cut straight to the tune, click here.
This is a far, far better version of Take On Me. Pipe Wrench Fight!
Word is, the long rumored, long thought to be impossible, Led Zeppelin reunion tour is on. Hold out Robert Plant reportedly agreed to join his former bandmates and the son of late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham on an arena tour in 2009.
UPDATE: Or maybe not… Robert Plant’s website now claims that after his current tour with Allison Krauss, the Zep singer will be too fatigued to embark on another tour for at least 2 more years. Thanks for crushing our dreams Mr. Plant.
Got a chance to check out Jonathan Coulton’s set at PAX and it was amazing. If you haven’t heard of JoCo, as he’s known in some circles, you may still be familiar with his work. Coulton penned the cult classic gaming song Still Alive, as well as many other great nerd rock anthems. Skullcrusher Mountain, an evil genius love-song, has recently be released on Rock Band with proceeds benefitting Child’s Play. Code Monkey is an eeriely accurate portrayal of the life of the young developer, at least in this developer’s experience. Hit the jump for a couple more videos.
