The Raw Meat Puppet From the New They Might Be Giants Music Video can See Into My Soul [Video]

Is this what all us humans look like to Bender?

They Might Be Giants Analyzes the Evolution of the Twitter Bird, Because Sure, Why Not

I found a new tweet underneath my pillow.

Twitter was made for the kind of esoteric snippets of awesome that the Brooklyn-based band They Might Be Giants (@tmbg) revels in, so it makes sense that they'd be pretty into it as a media platform. How into it, you ask? Enough to let all their Facebook followers know how much they enjoy the Twitter logo's Pokemon-like evolution into a completely different bird. Yeah, we know the bird's actually called Larry -- get it -- but just for today, can we name one of these guys Istanbul and the other Constantinople?

This Updated Chart of Words in They Might Be Giants Lyrics is Our Favorite Infographic of the Day

If you are going to do a deeply nerdy bit of fan art for a band, you could do a lot worse than They Might Be Giants.  David Mackenzie (@divmazie) has done the thankless and necessary work of charting the frequency of words as they appear in all 487 songs from TMBG's more than two decades worth of studio albums. Ever wanted to know how many times the word "rocket" is used in the band's songs?

New They Might Be Giants Music Video Features a Whole Mess of Nanobots [Video]

If there's one band the majority of Internet culture seems to find interesting, it's They Might Be Giants. Maybe it's thanks to all those songs being used in cartoons, like the time "Istanbul" and "Particle Man" were featured on Tiny Toons. It also might have something to do with the fact that their songs, in general, are pretty excellent. Regardless, they're popular for a good reason, and the music video for their song "Nanobots" just released. Try to guess what it has a whole bunch of in it.

They Might Be Giants may have just released a new EP, but there will always be a place in my heart for their song "Particle Man" which was forever immortalized by the Warner Bros. cartoon Tiny Toons.

Not really, but just to make sure that everyone is 100% perfectly clear on how things go down in the song, the band just tweeted this handy flowchart from their official account.

Question: Are We Tired of Quirky Bad Romance Covers Yet? Answer: No

There's a place in the Venn diagram of my soul where nerd overlaps with musician. The part that kept saying no, no, the guy who's made an audio track out of water-in-pipe-gushing sounds and deliberately-created-mic-feedback has a valid artistic statement to make so you sit there and listen with an open mind, young lady. That voice didn't even have to show up to get me to watch Brett Domino and Steven Peavis cover Bad Romance on a couple of hand-sized Korg synthesizers.
