The Men in Black have gone through two different adventures and are headed for a third that will take them back in time! So before we continue on to our present news, let’s take a flashback to the hayday of the 90’s. When Men In Black first debuted its hit single had people in awe of Will Smith‘s lyrical prowess. Here is a glimpse of the music video from the first film’s anthem track:

Now let’s jump back to present! Sony Pictures has released Pitbull’s single ‘Back in Time’, sorry if you didn’t catch all the hints at the title before now, this track is said to be the theme song for Men in Black 3. If you’ve never heard any of Pitbull’s music then you won’t get this jab, but usually his songs all start with the same intro: *beat* beat* ‘This is worldwide…Pitbull’ *beat*beat* (song starts) Don’t be fooled!  The song picks up after Pitbull’s usual antics, and is deserving of being the Men in Black’s theme song. It stands musically on the same level as Will Smith’s theme for the first film. So check out the song below brought to you by Soundcloud:

In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

Men in Black 3 arrives in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 25th.

We’re afflicted, programmed to turn our heads and take notice of words like “Dinosaur” and “Sci-Fi Rock Opera”. MJ Hibbett, of the UK indie-rock act MJ Hibbett and the Validators, knows this and he feasted on our “weakness”, creating a unique, silly, and wonderful concept album that speculates on a world where Dinos dash back from an outer-worldly land to re-claim the earth… oh, and there are robots too. I spoke with Hibbett about a possible Dinosaur Planet live show, his ode to Alan Moore, Human/Dinosaur… “relations”, and  making nerdy music for all the right reasons.

Some dude plays the comedian Richard Lewis in this video where he actually chats with Bear McCreary, the mastermind behind the scores for Battlestar GalacticaThe Walking DeadHuman Target and others.  It’s actually pretty damn funny; he ribs McCreary for being a fuckin’ nerd (which is totally awesome) and poses “who would win?” scenarios like John Williams vs. Hans Zimmer (I’m rooting for Zimmer).

It’s totally worth watching – check it out!  “He Shoots, He Scores” is a pretty clever title.  If anything, watch it for that!

So it says that that’s the TV-PG version… As far as I can tell, a non-PG version doesn’t exist. Having to point that out makes it all very misleading; I was looking forward to some non-PG shits and giggles.

“You, Me and Optimus Prime”: A Bromance Made In Heaven

You know you have a real nerd-sized hard-on for a fictional character when you write a song for said character. Or you’re a really fuckin’ sad loner. Either way, Canadian singer-songwriter James Struthers definitely has some of that crazy shit going down. James’ newest video, “You, Me and Optimus Prime”, is the closest we may ever get to a bromance between human and autobot that won’t be filed in with the spank bank on your computer. (Or will it?)

Even if you’re not a fan of this kind of music, it’s well worth it to watch Optimus piss gasoline onto a fire. That’s right: Optimus Prime pissing on a fire and making it bigger. (By “it”, I mean the fire, you sick fucks!) If that’s the only reason you’d be interested in watching this video, so be it. Just fuckin’ watch it! And, y’know, if watching Struthers and Optimus Prime fuck around all day is something that gets you going… We aren’t judging. (Yes, we are.)

Or your Zune, if you have a Zune, did anyone actually ever have a Zune?

Let’s face it, the mainstream music scene is a wasteland of terrible premanufactured pop bands meant to sell products more than perform music. As we go through this crazy think called life it is hard enough to find a decent soundtrack to it on the radio. Couple that with our unique tastes as nerd,s geeks, and freaks and sometimes you have to work harder than a cat trying to bury a turn on a marble floor to find something worth listening to. Where is our music? We are here to help.

Nerds rock, so do geeks and we’re going to prove it. The following ten acts cover the spread of Nerd Rock, Hip Hop and, music in general. Some you may know, some will be new to you. ALL should be enjoyed.

For Nerds About To Rock starts after the jump.

There are a lot of bad movies floating around, and there are a lot of bad songs that go along with them. Action films — particularly those from the 1980s — have many of the worst soundtracks, and yet some of our most iconic verses have come from Rocky, The Karate Kid and so forth. Did any of the Members Only-jacket-wearing producers at the time know this would happen? Of course not. Will they take credit for our love of cheesy lyrics and guitar solos? Absolutely.
 
After the jump, check out 10 oddly mesmerizing songs from the action films of yesteryear. Fair warning: these songs will suck up valuable brain space, and you’ll be singing them for hours.

Check Out This Badass Puppet Rap

Some puppets sing about the alphabet and friendship. This puppet however, is working on being the biggest name in rap and hip-hop. Sesame Street ain’t got nothing on this.

Directed by Sam Macaroni, Puppet Break-Up is the highly NSFW rap video that anyone with a sense of humor could enjoy.

With lyrics like “I’ll f@#$ all the other muppets on Sesame Street” this definitely isn’t something you bring to the daycare for the little one before nap time.

Watch the music video below and enjoy some awesome puppet rap

Someone call Jay-Z on the double, he needs to sign the first rapping puppet right away.

Ah, the theme to Doctor Who. No matter the variation, that electric synthesised composite, which evokes an eerie sense of adventure, gets me all juiced up. A TV tune I can replay time and time again. It’s right up there with Remy Zero and their song “Save Me” from Smallville.

Doctor Who has been on for damn near 50 years and in that time the title sequence has gone through a number of changes. It’s music, logo, fonts and other visuals have evolved.Today’s video is a complete history of those revisions— with commentary! — showing how it’s changed while still remaining faithful.Maybe I’m just of fan of Doctor Who, or maybe I just get off on TV title sequences, but I find it fascinating to see how all the incarnations of the Doctor were introduced, how the decades influenced the fonts used, the style of music, the graphics..etc. Nah, I just got a fetish for title sequences (as I say with my dick in hand).

If you’ve spent any time on the interwebz you’ve probably run into a few Pogo mixes. Pogo? Yes, Pogo. The brilliant re-mixer, known in the real world as Nick Bertke, is the creator of such gems as: ‘Upular‘ (Pixar Remix), ‘Skynet Symphonic‘ and ‘Murmurs of Middle-Earth‘. What Pogo does sounds simple enough, but by sampling hundreds of different movies and television shows he creates phenomenal bits of music. His latest remix might be his best yet.

This is the video for my track ‘Bloom‘, a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and a series of chords from ‘A.I: Artificial Intelligence’ to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.

It’s Friday morning, you’re groggy, the coffee still hasn’t kicked in. Tune in, drop out and let ‘Bloom’ take you into the weekend.

For other Pogo remixes check out his Youtube page. Personal favorites of mine are, ‘Alice‘ and ‘Toyz Noize.’
