Highlight: Jonathan Coulton




If you've played a game called Portal and stuck around long enough to see the credits, you'd recognize a song he wrote called Still Alive. Jonathan and his songs have been making rounds in the internet garnering acclaim for a fairly long time now. His songs about geek culture are clever and fun, and it takes a certain finesse to write songs about redshirts, programming, zombies, robots and mad scientists, and create them at the caliber he does.

So, you could imagine my surprise when a disappointingly large number of my geeky peers(those that would absolutely love his songs) gave me confused looks whenever I talked about Jonathan's songs or mentioned his name.

Despite having an already large following and circles where Coulton, Still Alive, Code Monkey and Re: Your Brains have become household names, he remains undiscovered for a large portion of his target demographic, particularly in non-native English-speaking countries where only the most mainstream flows.


Go look him up. Seriously.

Fans have made countless videos to his songs on Youtube so you won't have any trouble looking for them.

I have his album from the Humble Music Bundle. The price I paid was enough for just the one album, imo.
