    This is 'The Dark Side Of The Covers', a series by Flickr user Harvezt imagining what the opposite side of an album cover might look like. Sort of like, a shot taken from the OTHER SIDE of the subject. Does that make sense? I suck at explaining things. Just go look at all t... / Continue →

    This is a series of iconic (some less than others) album covers superimposed over the actual locations they were shot at in Google Street View. I have not visited any of those places. Of course, I'm still saving up for my album cover tour of the world. So far I've got a gran... / 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 →

    This is a picture of the Super Mario themed drum kit that Josh Fry just finished building. It was his first drum kit build. For reference, I have built zero drum kits, but a shit-ton of model airplanes. Anybody recognize the sprite he used for the ground? I know it's not fr... / 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 the main theme from Pacific Rim being performed on dueling Tesla coils while an exposed-brain robotic drummer tries to suck all the lightning into its eyeballs. You ever rubbed your socks on the carpet to build up static electricity then touched a friend's e... / Continue →

    We're on a mission from God. This is the iconic through-the-mall car chase scene from the original Blues Brothers faithfully recreated in LEGO by the folks of BrickTease. Oh we've got both kinds, we've got country AND western. I hate Illinois Nazis. Who wants to take the r... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Bottle Boys performing The Little Mermaid's 'Under the Sea' (one of my personal faves) entirely on bottles. So if you've been waiting your whole life to see that happen, today is your lucky day. But if you've been waiting your whole life to see me win t... / Continue →

    Note: Please, try to keep the metal metal band jokes to a minimum. This is a video of the robotic band Compressorhead practicing in the garage of some human they likely killed. Unfortunately (or is it?), as somebody pointed out in the video's comments, you can really only hea... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie reader Doug's home-built Guitar2-D2 electric guitar. He said at first he wasn't gonna send it to me because he felt like that would be too narcissistic of him. Then I think he chugged a couple beers and warmed up a little. I've avoided spreading this link ... / Continue →

    In case you haven't haven't seen it, here's a video of Romanian children Stephan (10), Olga (8) and Cornelia (5) covering Rammstein's classic 'Sonne'. They do a good job. Like, a really good job. And, whether you believe letting your children perform metal songs is okay or n... / Continue →

    This is a custom electric guitar pieced together by Youtuber fiskybusiness89 out of a plastic Millennium Falcon toy and handmade R2-D2 head stock. I don't know about you, but I for one would smash the shit out of that on stage after one song and then yell "SHOW'S OVER, NO REFU... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to concentrate while Superman is in the background being all, "RAWR, behold my magnificent tits!", Togepi the cockatiel sings the Super Mario Bros. theme song. I'm not sure if the bird's caretaker actually taught the bird the song or just played enough Mario t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a homemade robotic band performing Marilyn Manson's 'Beautiful People'. I can only assume the bots were made in somebody's garage, bringing new meaning to the phras-- "DON'T EVEN SAY IT, GW!" Haha, you got me. Admittedly, the garage band (YOU CAN'T CONTROL... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Richard combined a magnetic-wave reading headset and a fan motor with a pick attached to "strum" a guitar at variable speeds based on how hard he's concentrating. I SAID 'ARE YOU READY TO ROCK'?! *wails on imaginary whammy-bar till it breaks off* the head... / Continue →

    Note: Video after the jump possibly NSFW on account of some naughty words for private parts. This is Pokemon the musical. If you really love Pokemon and can't catch(!!!!!!11) enough of the franchise, you might like it. But if you think Yu-Gi-Oh is the shit and Pokemons are j... / Continue →

    Less teeth, guy on the right! This is a video of three dudes singing the theme songs to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Duck Tales and Pokemon cartoons. They're very...expressive. Like in a show choir-y kinda way. Plus I don't know what they did to the frame-rate of the v... / Continue →

    Guitar Hero, the franchise that taught us all pushing colored buttons in time to music could make you feel like a badass, has been canceled. *looks at real guitar resting in corner* DON'T "I TOLD YOU SO" ME! You think I won't smash you? I'll smash you. "Due to continued de... / Continue →

    Ninja Moped (formally Rymdreglage), is the musical duo that brought us last year's '8-Bit Trip'. And now they're back with more LEGO/NES videos! No word on how many man-hours went into stop-motioning these ones, but if I had to guess I'd say way too many for either one of th... / Continue →
