This had to be shared. Weird Al is singing about the internet again, although the music style doesn’t count as Nerdcore. Or maybe it does, since I got the heads up on this one from MC Lars. I also used to know the keyboard player, another reason to add this tune. Then, just to keep it balanced, a parody song by a fem about the glories of geek (but also not actual Nerdcore). Sometimes silly trumps all other choices, just because you need your daily laugh quota. OK, screw it, one actual Nerdcore song (third one down) from MC Lars.

You have to love the section of the TOR website called Of Interest, and here are a few recent examples why. The Web Urbanist has put together one of the best collections of Science Fiction Weapons assembled on a single web page. While mostly blasters, it includes one or two other types of offensive toys (not much for defense, here). Something Awful had its usual collection of Forum entries that allowed them to put together this excellent collection of Star Wars Classic Art. That may not mean exactly what you think it does, so be sure to take a peek. And from Geek Tout came the link for Silence of the Lego Lambs, the Musical (WARNING: not work friendly)…

Built around a core of Anime and JRock classic tunes, Jazz and Just Plain Good Music soon joined the mix on my Pandora Anime Radio Station. The result isn’t always what I expected, going off on Blues or Ballads or Backbeat Swing for a time, then bouncing into Alternative, Boogie, Punk, and other forms of quality rock. After a year of tweaking, it seems to play nothing but great music; and on those rare occasions when it doesn’t, I tweak a bit more. What I enjoy most is the amount of world-class music it includes I had never heard before, or even heard of. BONUS!!!
