Top 10 Geek Anthems of All Time (CNN.com)
CNN’s tech department has put together a pretty sweet list of “geek anthems” that I think is a worthwhile read. Everything from Bare Naked Ladies’ “One Week” to Weezer’s “In the Garage,” I think this list is well written and pretty inclusive of some of the best that nerd rock has to offer. I’m a bit a surprised Weird Al’s...
Crash Kings are L.A. Rock
I got turned on to the Crash Kings a few weeks ago and just picked their self-titled debut album, and it’s fabulous. It’s only $5 on Amazon MP3 and you’re gonna need to get a copy for yourself. They’re a trio with bass, drums, and piano (no guitars!) and I just can’t get enough of these guys right now. Definitely not what I expected to hear from a band out of Los...

Abandon: Buy Their Music
I’ve been watching the band Abandon for about a year and I’ve been pretty impressed with their stuff. Not only are they good song writers, but they’ve got lyrics that you really don’t hear too often from a young Christian band. I guess I’m always a little weary of young Christian bands being great musically, but lacking lyrically, yet Abandon seems to do both very...

Sleeping At Last - Storyboards (new album now...
If there is one band that is easily in my top five all time favorite bands it’s Sleeping At Last. Everything they create is beautiful, but somehow people everywhere have missed enjoying this band. Maybe it’s the fact they went indie after their first album, or because their music isn’t the perfect pop single that every radio stations needs to add to their rotation, but whatever...
Parachute - Losing Sleep
Mercury Records Released: May 19, 2009 Parachute is a band you’ll definitely be hearing more about in the coming months. With a Maroon 5 resemblance and absolutely stunning melodies, this pop band is going places. Parachute originally formed while together at college and these students just graduated in 2008. I’m not exactly sure what they studied at school, but I’m sure they...
Cage The Elephant
Cage The Elephant is new to me and it looks like I’m about a year behind on this self-titled release. This American rock band from the pits of Bowling Green, Kentucky (to be said with a Southern draw) are a fresh new sound that I’m pretty much stoked on right now. With a taste of Beck, a pinch of the Beastie Boys, and a classic rock vibe, Cage The Elephant is a great mix and nice...
New Pixar Trailer!
It’s more than a year away from release, but I still can’t help but get excited about returning to the classic toy chest that kick-started Pixar’s great adventures. With the release of this summer’s Up, Disney also released a teaser for Toy Story 3. All the favorite characters make a cameo. Check it out!
