First of all, have you gone and voted for Ian Gibson’s Stuff of Legends yet? No? Shoo! Gogogo! Today’s the last day.
Next, there’s a rant forthcoming on a big bookseller DOIN IT WRONG, but I’m in a good mood today, so instead I will share awesomeness rather than working myself up to the point where I’m foaming at the mouth.
I’ve had a Jonathan Coulton song in my head all morning, and because it makes me grin and sniffle at the same time, I thought I’d share. Fellsie linked “I’m Your Moon” to me originally, and I heard it without accompanying video. The conversation, as I listened to the first verse and the chorus, went something like this:
me: …is this about Pluto? Fells: It is. And how awesome is it. me: SO AWESOME Fells: I knoooow me: omg geek music ftw
It is the sweetest song about the de-planeting of Pluto you’ll ever hear (I don’t care if it might be the only song about the de-planeting of Pluto. Shut up.)
There is also a very cool fan video of it up on the site, which I now embed for your viewing pleasure.
This thread is officially about geeky songs. Share away!
