  6. Get Your Nerd Groove On With These Excellent Geeky Jams

    Geek out!

    I adore music. All kinds of music, from Tchaikovsky to Bad Religion and from Kate Miller-Heidke to Tech N9ne. What I also love is when people get super clever, and super nerdy, with their music (be it an original or a parody). So, here are just a few of my favorite nerdy songs from my music library.

  7. Review: I Ship It Is The YouTube Tale Of A Pissed Off Hufflepuff And The Power Of Wizard Rock

    Puff pride!

    Wizard rock bands are one of those special aspects of the Harry Potter fandom that make me smile. Like fan fic and fanart creators, wizard rock bands take the Harry Potter canon and write songs about it. Sometimes it’s about actual settings or characters, but sometimes it just uses themes from the books (like love and heartbreak) as allegories. I Ship It is a short film about one girl’s chance at wizard rock stardom, emotional closure and maybe a little payback. Or a lot of payback.

  11. Go Behind the Scenes With Bear McCreary As He Crafts Agents of SHIELD’s “The Cellist Theme”

    Essay

    [Editor's note: The official blog of composer Bear McCreary (Agents of SHEILD, Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead) is a great resource for anyone who wants a deeper look at the music of some of their favorite geek shows. We especially took a liking to his post on creating the theme for Agents of SHIELD's cellist, played by Amy Acker, which he graciously allowed us to repost in its entirety.] In the April 22nd episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson must defend his former flame from a super-powered stalker. As we have known for a while, he used to date a cellist. At last we get to meet her and hear her play! In my new video blog, go behind-the-scenes to the recording session where we recorded the virtuosic cello solo for this uniquely musically-themed episode.

  14. The Force Is With Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens’ Star Wars Medley [VIDEO]

    I will make it legal!

    Lindsey Stirling, she of nerdy violin medleys, and Peter Hollens, Mr. One-Man Acappella, have joined forces like the Rebellion and the Ewoks during the Battle of Endor to create something truly special: This awesome medley of Star Wars music. I would like to thank the pair of them for reminding me that, as awful as The Phantom Menace is, it still gave us "Duel of the Fates." All hail John Williams!

  15. The Hobbit’s Misty Mountains, Acappella, By One Man [VIDEO]

    There And Back Again

    Peter Hollens, who we've previously seen collaborating with violinist Lindsey Stirling, is here now by himself (technically) to sing The Misty Mountain song from The Hobbit. I say technically because this is one of those videos where one very talented person puts themselves on every track to create a particular song. The only thing lacking is a fake beard.

  17. Geektastic Musicians That Deserve More Attention Than They Have Received

    Anybody that has played Portal -- or at this point, heard someone espousing the virtues of Portal -- has likely come across the musician Jonathan Coulton. His song from the ending credits, "Still Alive," has reached near mythical status in the realm of geekdom and potentially beyond.

    But Mr. Coulton is far from the only geeky musician out there. There are some obvious inclusions in a list of geeky musicians, such as mc chris, Freezepop and, of course, Weird Al. There are also, however, a number of musicians, bands and groups that exist just far enough out to the side of what might be considered mainstream that they deserve to be spotlighted. This is by no means comprehensive. For more artists, check out Nerdapalooza or Penny Arcade Expo. The first is a nerdy music festival while the second typically has concerts at night featuring many of these artists and more.
