You Should Be Ashamed

Henry and I made a mix CD yesterday.  The rules we established were that it had to have geeky/nerdy songs, we would try to make it from Henry's music library (although we bought an MC Frontalot CD), and Henry wanted the Lonely Island/Justin Timberlake songs (but I had to cut 'Motherlover' cause I didn't think it fit with the overall flow and I've heard it enough recently).

1.  Going Back to Hogwarts -A Very Potter Musical Cast

This song is very catchy.  A little too catchy.  Although my favorite song from the musical is 'Ginny/Cho Chang' (just for the line "gonna take you to the city, get all up in your titties"), this song is a close second.

"No way this year anyone's gonna die and it's gonna be totally awesome!"

2.  Neville -MC Chris

Neville is a totally bad ass; especially in the last movie.

I swear there are no more Harry Potter songs on this play list.

3.  It Is Pitch Dark -MC Frontalot

I haven't watched Nerdcore Rising yet, but it's on my immediate to do list.

Always carry a torch.

4.  Dick In A Box -Lonely Island feat. Justin Timberlake

Part one of Henry's request.  It transitions us into the slower songs of the list.

This is not an acceptable birthday gift, Henry.

5.  SCV Love Song -NerdAlert

NerdAlert is a group put together by Husky (a Starcraft II commentator) and some other youtube stars.  They've made some fun Starcraft themed songs.  Although they mainly do spoofs of other songs, this is an original.

"We'll repair one another"

6.  Helix Nebula -Anamanaguchi

I love 8-bit music.  I believe that if you play any Anamanaguchi song while doing something boring makes it ten times more exciting.  I also believe that if you do the same action while playing a Frou Frou song it makes it deep and meaningful.

If only there was a local 8-bit music scene.  If there is, I am not cool enough to know about it.

7.  Roll a D6 -some people from the internet

I'm sure they have some sort of name, but I can't think of it right now.

"Give me a perception check"

8.  Banelings -NerdAlert

I haven't ever listened to Justin Beiber's 'Baby' except for the occasional sample (30 seconds or less).  Now whenever I hear a clip of that song I get disappointed when it's not 'Banelings.'

"Spawning on Lost Temple, man that map is so imba for terran"

9.  Blackout City -Anamanaguchi

Just because I could.


10.  Still Alive -Jonathan Coulton

This might be the song that everyone knows even if they haven't heard of Portal.  It's a good song.

"These points of data make a beautiful line"

11.  Date My Avatar -Felicia Day (The Guild)

The Guild is possibly one of the funniest web series.

"Women, can't live with them; none of them will go out with me" -Vork

12.  3-way (The Golden Rule) -Lonely Island feat. Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga

Best dated references ever?

"Your mom says hi.  Jinx."

13.  Nerdcore Rising -MC Frontalot

Henry and I agreed yesterday that when we have a kid and he or she releases their own nerdcore album, we hope they title it 'You Should Be Ashamed.'


BONUS TRACK!  Reginald's Answering Machine Rap -MC Frontalot, written by Anthony Clark (Nedroid)

MC Frontalot recored the rap Anthony wrote for one of his characters.  It's quite awesome.  

Check out the comic here.

The song is here.
