Zelda Medley Performed On Banjo And Musical Saw

May 14, 2012


This is a medley of Zelda songs being performed by Geekologie Reader Falcor T. Luckdragon and his two man ensemble Frontier Ruckus on the banjo and musical saw, with some melodica (the little keyboard you blow into) action towards the end. Now granted I didn't recognize any of the songs, but that's only because they were impossible to focus on since my computer has a virus and keeps popping up with auto-playing ads for penis pills. Ugh, of COURSE I feel inadequate, but I'm still not crazy enough to order dong pills from a malicious ad on the internet! "Be honest." Well, not again anyways.

Hit the jump for more moonshine swiggin' good ol' boy action than you could swing a broken Budweiser bottle at.

Thanks to David J., Falcor T. Luckdragon and LYNDON, who know a good hoedown when they see one and should really invite me next time. I was home alone waiting by the phone!

    This was great listening too. A banjo and a curious selection of other musical instruments.

    Needs more bagpipe

  • I'm just confused as to how one can argue with harmonica-piano. I was moved nearly to tears.. Also seems to be quite a talented band outside this one cover.

  • frontier ruckus rules.

  • That was fantastic. They're very good.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, there, guy - but that was teenage girls.

    I'm starting to think that people think "hipster" applies to everything. swag.

    No... Jack Kerouac ruined vampires. I said what I meant.

  • no more im full

    ok, enough with the zelda covers...

    the modern hyper-allergy toward "hispterdom" is really astounding—that limited people will fling the label on anything barely resembling "hipster" culture and dismiss it as such. these are obviously extremely proficient musicians. if they were just banging a glockenspiel on a lone floor tom, that'd be another thing. this is just a really imaginative musical adaptation. it's ok to like it!

    It's because you people ruined vampires.

  • gratispapa

    let's see you do anything remotely as technically impressive, Kringle. you cursory bumpkin.

    Not real nerds. Effing hipsters.

    Among other things... I stick antibodies to antibodies to proteins and then measure how much the conjugated enzyme breaks down the substrate by measuring the absorbance. That work for you?


  • I would never unite with a person who feels the need to validate themselves by judging others who simply act differently.

    If you were a REAL nerd, you would know that attaching a label to someone and judging them solely by it is ingrained in the nerd culture.

    It wasn't that long ago when you could get insulted or beat up for being labeled a nerd; and now nerds attack hipsters for merely having different interests.

    Since when is being a nerd a free pass to be a bully?

    ::face palm:: 

    I'll have my PR team draw up an official apology by morning.  I will accept my role as fake nerd, issue the apology and we can all move on with our lives. 

  • being less condescending would likely give you more time to be a nerd.

  • gratispapa

    how prosaic! haha. seriously though—if you were to be judged, I'm confident that your "nerd" badge of honor isn't as impermeable as you'd like to believe.  I would even go so far as to suggest that your nerdster elitism is far more hipster than anything about this video.

  • $18922249

    Hey man, you asked for something more technically impressive and I will argue that I gave it to you. I watch mitochondria breathe, motherfucker. I WATCH THEM BREATHE!

    Prosaic... sheesh.  Had to look that one up.

     If only your massive scientific nerd brain could comprehend that you can't objectively quantify nerdom or hipsterdom and accept that, maybe, just maybe, people deserve the right to be able to pursue their interests without fear of whether or not they are "real" nerds.
