“Geek & Gamer Girls” Song Proves Geek is Chic

The very attractive girls from Team Unicorn collaborated together to make a song with music video on just how acceptable it’s become to be a geek and a gamer these days. “Geek & Gamer Girls” (a parody of Katy Parry’s “California Girls”) stars the 4 lovely ladies as well as some generous face time from Seth Green, as well as cameo appearances by Katee “Lady Starbuck” Sackoff and the comic book master himself, Stan Lee!

Konami Code. Han Shot First. How many geek references can you find?

Mark Ronson’s “Circuit Breaker” is a Link To The Past

Did you like that terrible game referencing play on words? You’ll like this music video for “Circuit Breaker” from the forthcoming Mark Ronson album “Record Collection”

Ted Leo / Phamacists kick off new Onion AV Club Series

The Onion (the funny newspaper) has new series where they’ll get 25 touring bands to cover 25 songs selected by editors. The first band, one of my favorites, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, get to turn in a pretty great cover of “Every Body Wants To Rule The World” originally by Tears for Fears.

By the way, I told you guys about 3 years ago about “Living With The Living” and my praise is matched for “The Brutalist Bricks

This is not the first time Ted Leo pulled out a pop cover for a website, taking a look at his performance of “Since You Been Gone” from a few years back… [Read the rest of this entry…]

Lazy Sunday Live! Samburg, Parnell & The Roots

Its been years since Chris Parnell and Andy Samburg did the “Lazy Sunday” sketch on SNL. It gave birth to one of the best segments of the show, the Digital Short. It also brought mainstream attention to The Lonely Island, who released probably one of the best comedy albums ever last year.
Parnell was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and for the first time ever, “Lazy Sunday” was performed in front of an audience, with beats by the legendary Roots crew. [Read the rest of this entry…]

I’m On A Boat

Warning: the following video is NOT safe for work!

The Lonely Island released their first CD this week, and I considered doing a review to tell you all how funny it is, but I’m afraid my review would be me repeating lines and laughing for 5 minutes.
So with that in mind, watch the above video and then buy the CD.

Top 5: Movie Parody Music Videos

I’m sure you’ve seen some music videos that knock heavily on scenes from movies, and here are five of my favorites. Excluding the obvious Weird Al ones, and stuff that just has movie scenes worked into the band playing, the Powet Top 5 are…

Jay-Z featuring Blackstreet
“City Is Mine”
The Usual Suspects

Sean Carter is interrogated by Detective Rappaport, in the same manner as Verbal Kint by Agent Kujan in the movie. The video mimics a couple scenes, and ultimately duplicates the movie’s twist. Who is Jay-Z?
