    This is OK Go's music video for their latest single, 'Writing's on the Wall'. It's constant optical illusions. Unfortunately, I have a splitting headache so it was kind of painful for me to watch, but I could still APPRECIATE it. Like a statue of a naked man at a museum, but... / Continue →

    Note: Start your volume low, it's loud. This is a jazz version of the Game of Thrones theme as performed by the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys at BB King's Blues Club in New York City. I am into it. But, FULL DISCLOSURE: I've always liked the Game of Thrones theme AND jazz music,... / Continue →

    This is the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Theramin Hero performing the Game of Thrones theme song on his custom built NES keytair. The NES even still functions as a gaming console! Plus it has light-up effects. The whole song kind of sounds like a phone ringing and nobody answering it. T... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like he's about to take off with a homemade roflcopter jetpack, Swedish one-man band street performer Anders Flanderz performs the Star Wars theme, the Tetris theme, and a BONUS rendition of Europe's 'The Final Countdown'. Man, I wish I had a gig where I got ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Dan Newbie performing the Game of Thrones theme on wine glasses, a pan, a trifle bowl (I know my trifle bowls!), a plastic bucket and one of those big-ass water jugs. You know, the kind you might have delivered to your home or office. There's also ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mariachi band performing the Gerudo Valley theme from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time at a wedding. That sounds like a pretty promising wedding. My friends Rob and Jackie's? I bet they break up before they even send Save The Dates. Per Youtuber Chr... / Continue →

    Remember that R&B version of the Pokemon theme? Well now the group is back with their own version of the Duck Tales theme. And let me tell you -- that singer has got some pipes on her. I could close my eyes and listen to her belt out sultry jams all night. A kid crying? I ... / Continue →

    This is the $150 GuitDoorbell, a real half size guitar that gets its strings strummed every time the door is opened. So it's not technically a doorbell, because 1) not a bell and 2) doorbells are usually rung from the outside BEFORE the door is opened. This only makes sound A... / Continue →

    This is a video of Alex Allmont's electronic beat producing LEGO machine, Playhouse. It makes beats so fresh you'd swear they were handpicked from the farm this morning. Or at least aren't passed their expiration date and marked with one of those orange 'Manager's Special' st... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group performing the Pokemon theme song in the style of a 90's R&B slow jam. It's sultry. The kind of song you and a lover could take each other's clothes off to. Or, if you're like me, the kind of song you could fumble around with a bra clasp to for a m... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Dan Newbie performing Super Mario Bros. themes using 48 wine glasses, two pencils and a frying pan. It sounded very pretty. Kinda reminded me of visiting the Caribbean. Granted I've never been, but in my mind that is what it would sound like. And... / Continue →

    This is the C-3PO Star Wars action figure carrying case that's been repurposed as an electric guitar. Me? I've always imagined C-3PO crushed in a Death Star trash compactor then cut into cubes and repurposed as paper weights. Everyone knows the Darth Vader collector's case... / Continue →

    Patatap (embedded after the jump or you can visit the official site or a full-screen version) is a little browser app that plays a different sound and animation for every letter of the keyboard. So you just mash away and CREATE MAGIC. Or a cacophony (somebody threw a Gatorade... / Continue →

    This is a series of twenty popular bands imagined as LEGO minifigs by Adly Syairi Ramly. He says all the photos were taken with an iPhone 5 and there was no Photoshopping of the figures. Not that I was going to accuse him of that. But there's always someone out there in a da... / Continue →

    Meet drummer Jason Barnes. Jason lost part of his right arm in an accident, so Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg built him robotic prosthesis so he could still drum his face off and become a rock star. Hell, I haven't even heard him play yet and I'd still throw my bra at hi... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Bottle Boys (of Little Mermaid theme fame) performing a medley of video game themes (Pong, Pac-Man, Tetris, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic The Hedgehog, Pokemon, World of Warcraft and Angry Birds) entirely on bottles. They do an amazing jo... / Continue →

    Note: Screencap above is the singer in the middle with a microphone. Watch the video at full screen in HD. Also, be sure to watch at work so your coworkers think you're a crazy person staring at a static screen. This is the music video for Young Rival's 'Black Is Good'. It'... / Continue →

    This is a video of Vimeo member Mc Cool using an electric piano as a controller to play Tekken. Impressive, but I've beat video games using a guitar before. "Rock Band and Guitar Hero don't count." Sure they do. *air guitaring* "Wait -- was that a Taylor Swift song?" I WA... / Continue →

    This is a video of Chad Neidt playing a one minute acoustic medley featuring songs from sixteen different video games. Those games are, in no particular order (jk jk, in the exact f***ing order he plays them): 1. PacMan 2. Super Mario Bros. 3. The Legend of Zelda 4. Tetris -... / Continue →
