Jonathan Coulton ROCKS!

Postby Detective TurtleHolmes on Sat Jun 21, 2008 8:07 am

I don't know about any of you, but I've become hooked on the new web-fad musician Jonathan Coulton. His songs have GREAT lyrics.

His songs are all crazy, for example, here's links to some of my personal favourites:
Skullcrusher Mountain
RE: Your Brains (hilarious!)
I Feel Fantastic
Code Monkey

Of course all of his songs are good, and I haven't listened to them all. You can!

Here's his homepage.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Still alive!
--Zankou II

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish."
--Pope John Paul II


Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Still Alive was the first song I learned to play on my guitar, incidentally.

I always liked Dance, Soterios Johnson, Dance and First of May.

Lol the Brains song is funny.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Have recently (read: less than 20 minutes ago) listened to everything on the site, emailed it to my friends and family, and ROCKED THE (edited) OUT.

Thanks, m8 - I knew that "Still Alive" weren't a singular effort. :D

Walked in on the Yr 12 Mathematics C class today. They were listening to Mandelbrot Set. The teacher of that class rocks.
