    I’ve no idea how this only has 50 views, or how I missed that this was posted finally - 2 months ago. I give the gentlest “whoo” like the crazy northwest owls to this lengthy talk about social media in the lives of John Roderick, Jonathan Coulton, Merlin Mann, Scott Simpson, and the ever classy John Hodgman. All helping people.

  2. Jonathan Coulton - “You Ruined Everything”

    For Lonely Sandwich and every other new parent.

  3. Overlaying JoCo and Glee versions of “Baby Got Back”

    Jonathan Coulton (left ear) vs Glee (right ear). I should note: the only editing I did to this was aligning the tracks. I didn’t isolate the vocals and put them over the same backing track; Glee were already using the exact same track, which is, as far as I can tell, JoCo’s recording.

    This is nothing short of ludicrous.

    Can’t believe they’d even attempt to defend this nonsense.

    It’s literally the same song. Key, tempo, instrumentation—GAAAAAAH!—it’s the SAME fucking song.

    So angry.

  4. iTunes - Music - Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee) - Single by Jonathan Coulton

From Jonathan’s blog post:


  I’ve released this track as a single. It’s a cover of Glee’s cover of my cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s song, which is to say it’s EXACTLY THE SAME as my original version. I’m releasing this under the same Harry Fox license I used for the 2005 release, so Mix will get all the royalties due to him. I’ll donate the proceeds from all sales that happen between now and the end of February to two charities: The VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and The It Gets Better Project.


It’d be difficult for me to love Jonathan Coulton more than I already do, but, well, there you go.

  7. John Roderick and Jonathan Coulton - “There’s Even Christmas in Jail” (Live 10/29/2012)

    I first heard this in rehearsal a couple hour earlier, and I was apoplectic with laughter. Just seizing up.

    Their Christmas album (which a little bearded birdie informs me is tentatively entitled One Christmas at a Time) is gonna be HUGE.

  8. jadegordon:

    My awesome friend Alice gave me a ticket to see this upcoming show featuring John Roderick, John Hodgman, Jonathan Coulton, Merlin Mann, and Scott Simpson.

    I drew John Hodgman in Edward Gorey style some days ago, because he’d responded to someone’s tweet with a desire to be drawn as such. Since Gorey is no longer, I gave it a shot.

    I sort of suddenly wanted to draw everyone in the upcoming show in the same style for kicks, and to challenge myself a little. You can see a couple of teeny in-progress teaser bits, then the full art.

"Old Man Club" by scottsimpson

Coming…Saturday mornings…this Fall…only on ABC!

It’s Yeti Guy and BizDev Boy!

Two men, one Winnebago. An unlikely partnership.
