Is this what all us humans look like to Bender?
It's no secret that we love They Might Be Giants and their flair for the unusual. Their latest music video for "You're On Fire" was just released today, though, and... wow. That sure is a puppet made of raw beef. With blank, unfeeling eye sockets. It's looking at me, you guys. I can't turn my gaze. Someone help.Read More
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?Read More
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.

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.

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.Read More
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. Is the song confusing? 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. See the whole thing, and that Tiny Toons clip after the jump.Read More
Due to the frequency of the various indie game bundles, as well as the recent 2012 Steam Summer Sale, you probably already own every single above average indie game on the market. Perhaps this is why Humble Bundle's new bundle doesn't contain indie games, but instead offers up a variety of geek-centric music.Read More
