Crowd Funding Update 6

I Fight Dragons – Project Atma (music): They were awesome at Warped Tour – I can’t wait until they go on the Projecet Atma tour. Manufacturing delays at the vinyl plant meant that the album was delayed. Still don’t have it – should be in my hands in December. Jonathan Coulton, Greg Pak, and others […]

Crowd Funding Update 5

I Fight Dragons – Project Atma (music): Things are on track with IFD. They are posting awesome videos of the recording process. It’s already March so as long as there aren’t any more delays, the album will be here in a few short months! Also, they’ll be on the Van’s Warped Tour, so I’ll be […]

Last.fm 2013 Q2 Listening Habits

Code Monkey

This song is awesome and, best of all, it’s been released under a Creative Commons license, so I can share it with you all without fear of the RIAA breathing down my neck! I first heard Code Monkey on a recent episode of Linux Outlaws. It’s a song about a code monkey who is having […]
