I would really, really like a fanmix for O Human Star.
Obviously, there are a few songs referenced in the comic itself that would be great for it…but, beyond that, I don’t really have a broad enough knowledge of music to make one myself.
Are there any fans out there who would be willing to do this?
I, too, would be very interested to hear what people can come up with for this.
This brass band version of “Dirt Bike” is one of my favorite They Might Be Giants songs and it’s on heavy rotation today.
Gonna go see these guys in concert this weekend as a reward for meeting my deadlines!
Your semiannual reminder that Jib Kidder’s cover of “Pets” is pretty great. (You also gotta listen to "Windowdipper" at least once a month.)
Has anyone out there not heard of Nigerian-French singer Aṣa yet? She writes soulful R&B tunes, she sings in English, French, and Yoruban, and she’s drop dead gorgeous. :U
Please do yourself a favor and look up her music immediately.
“O Human Star”
If you haven’t read the excellent webcomic “O Human Star” yet, you should stop reading this and read it now because it is excellent and it has found my way into my brain.
The music making part of my brain.
So I decided to write a song called “O Human Star” while at the same time cryptically mentioning the plot in the lyrics.
Might be on the next album, might be a single, might just be here for fun.
In any case, enjoy.
… oh my god.
I just had one of the most unforgettable, heartwrenching weekends of my life and to come back and find that someone has written a song - an amazing song - about a thing that I made is…
