I’m not sure how I first found the music of Jonathan Coulton. It may have been Wil Wheaton’s blog, it may have been Twitter, it may have been The Fabulist, I just don’t know. But I’m certainly glad I did.
Here’s hoping I’m your first introduction to Jonathon Coulton’s music.
Start here. I reccomend Code Monkey, Ikea and his cover of Baby Got Back. Go ahead, listen to a few of the songs there. I’ll wait.
Here’s a video:
I enjoy supporting geek music. I enjoy listening to geek music and thrusting geek music on others, whether they want me to or not. I mean JoCo, as he’s known on the streets, started out as a software engineer, for Chrissake. Can’t get much geekier than that.
Since I’m in a sharing mood, I’ll share with you a few other cool things to check out.
How about The Fabulist? Without the Fabulist, I certainly wouldn’t know what was cool and hip. And for that, I owe them a great debt.
And The Spout. Great little website that’s still in it’s early stages of development. It will someday be a grand presence on the intrawebs, one to which we will all bow and worship ( and I’m not just biased due to their showcasing my work. ).
Right. I’ll be checking in on my unfinished piece and I’ll see if there’s any progress I can make before bed.
