“Weird Al” Yankovic – Word Crimes

Saturday, May 9th, 2015 at 9:10 pm | Audio | Video

“Weird Al” Yankovic is fed up with your misspelled and misused words. It’s not that hard, people. Even on phones, keyboards like Swype make it easy enough to use proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation. There’s plenty of red pen in this video, but this is the first time since high school that I’ve seen a sentence diagram. I heard this song at RiffTrax Live’s screening of The Room, a legendary bad movie that commits crimes against words, storytelling, logic, anatomy, and football.

Rob Scallon – Enter Sandman (backwards cover)

Rob Scallon is back and he’s really outdone himself this time. His cover of Metallica’s Enter Sandman was played in reverse on each instrument, then reversed back around the right way in editing. Even the vocals were sung in reverse! As always, he has fun with the video.

TMNT Tournament Fighters

Remember when Konami made video games? Their best fighting game was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters on the SNES. Last night, we played a tournament in this at our local fight night, and I did my best to explain it during the first few matchups.

Jennifer Greenburg – The Rockabillies

I’ve got a soft spot for the most eccentric geeks who go a long way to live how they want, even if it’s weird. As it turns out, there’s an entire Rockabilly community for recreating the lifestyle of 1950s America. It’s not just about having retro clothes, furniture, and appliances, but also about repairing and maintaining those things for decades instead of replacing them like we do now. These people must be a blast to hang out with.

Check out that tube TV! That thing has got to be expensive to restore and maintain, but you can't deny that it's cool. How hard is it to get a DTV converter connected to an old timey twin-lead antenna connection?

Hideki Naganuma – Teknopathetic (e-Pop’n Disco 80’s Mix)

Monday, April 20th, 2015 at 4:36 pm | Audio

I started listening to RadioSEGA again and they’ve been playing this song from Ollie King, an arcade skateboarding game that was the spiritual successor of Top Skater. Sampling artist Hideki Naganuma provided the soundtrack, including remixes of a couple of his own songs from Jet Set Radio Future. I had no idea Ollie King had beats like this.
