Hello again, El Moochadores! I actually tried writing this post a few days ago, but life stuff got in the way. Anyways, not only has it been a long time since I did a Moo-post, but it has been an especially long time that I’ve posted anything related to geeky music. Then I got an e-mail from Paul Melancon along with a link to a Youtube video to one of his songs, and I thought “cool, I can get behind this.”
The goal is to fundThe Get-Go’s Action Hour, and when (already!) funded the album will feature “power-pop album about choosing creation over cynicism, made by Paul Melancon and an animated band”. According to the KS page the album will feature original songs and cover art by Meloncon and… it’s already funded! However you can still pitch in and help the project hit all of its stretch goals. Check out the KS promo video below along with the single posted on the youtube.
Hello again, El Moochadores. Yeah, ‘been awhile since our last post, but I’ve been really “under the weather.” However, I’m feeling much better today and The Doubleclicks have a new song out. So, I’m going to try and get back into my routine while you (our loyal cult of super bovine buffs) check out their new tune. The song is called “Now Is The Time, and is the latest song from their “You Should Write A Song About That” project,. This song also appears on their soon to be Love Problems album, which has a Kickstarter right now. Actually, a very successful KS, with 10 days (as of this post) left to contribute and cash in on some cool contributor awards to boot!
Check out Now is the Time below, while I go and (try) to remember where I left my pants. I’ve been in sweatpants the last week, and I’m kind of hating giving ’em up.

Hello again, El Moochadores! There is a few things I want to share with all of you tonight, but first I want you to take a look at one of the best things I’ve ever seen on the youtube. Coming our way via youtuber Murp (which I think is the name of the young band), check out young Aaralyn and Izzy as they preform a musical classic. Gwar’sSick of You. I’ve watched this about five times today and it just keeps getting better.
12/22/2016 / Trog / Comments Off on Wherever you are on Christmas by The Doubleclicks
A Nerd Christmas Song
Hey El Moochadores, The Doubleclicks are back with a new, nerdy, Christmas song! Check out Wherever You Are on Christmas – a “sweet, romantic holiday song in which The Doubleclicks proclaim to follow their love wherever they are–even if that’s on a Cylon Basestar, raiding a tomb, or in a Sarlacc pit. Keen.
Currently you can find this song on Spotify, where you can also find a Christmas Friends & Favs, featuring the likes of Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Jonathan Coulton, Lucia Fasano, and Paul and Storm.
By the way; just in case you were wondering. I’ll be in beautiful San Diego for Christmas. I live near the beach. It feels great.
10/28/2016 / Trog / Comments Off on The Universe (Danielle Ate The Sandwich Cover) by The Doubleclicks
Okay El Moochadores, last post for awhile, then I’m going to go lay down.
A few days ago (week?) the Doubleclicks sent us a link to a new cover they did of Danielle Ate the Sandwich’s song, The Universe. I’m not even going to say who’s take is better, we don’t judge that way around here! Well… unless we’re offered free tickets to a show. Or food. Then we’ll totally say who did it better. Until then check out the Doubleclicks cover below and throw them some support on their Paetron. Keep the tunes going.
I’ma gonna lay down now and wait for death.
10/22/2016 / Trog / Comments Off on Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration Medley
Tomb Raider Celebrates 20 Years with a Medley from Pianist Sonya Belousova!
If you’ve had a day like I’ve had, then you’re gonna want to get your “mellow” on and there’s nothing better for that than some good geeky tunes played out by a professional pianist and composer like Sonya Belousova. Belousova does all the playing while the video was directed by Tom Grey of Player Piano. So, sit back and get your ASMR on to some classy geekness set in some pretty far locals. Which actually makes me feel pretty bad for the poor SOB that had to lug a piano out to all those locations. Unless, random forest pianos is a thing that musicians know about and just never bring up. That might be a thing. Check out the full details below along with the video.
In celebration and honor of Rise of the Tomb Raider, the 20 Year Celebration Anniversary of the iconic Tomb Raider franchise, Crystal Dynamics has teamed up with Player Piano, the popular viral YouTube music series created by Sonya Belousova, one of the most accomplished young composers and recording artists, on an epic new Tomb Raider-inspired music video that just had its World Premiere Thursday at New York Comic Con.
The video, which featured Belousova’s incredible original arrangement and performance of the iconic Tomb Raider themes, premiered today at NYCC October 6 during Crystal Dynamics’ live stage session. The video and session was live streamed on the main Twitch channel and is now available on Belousova’s Player Piano YouTube channel
Hello El Moochadores! Sorry about the lack of post the last few days, but since getting back from SLCC life has been kind of nuts. So, I finally have a few nights off and I thought I’d take a little time to get caught up on blog post. Then I’m going to do nothing. Really nothing. I’m going to take my pants off, lay on the couch, and watch the ceiling and that’s all. I don’t even want to fall asleep. I just want to do nothing. But first:
The Doubleclicks (chicks… sorry, I can’t help it. I always say “chicks” in my head after “doubleclicks.” It just happens!) have included a couple of stops in California to their cross country tour! Keen. Check out the schedule to the right (wait… computer left?) and if you’re lucky enough to be in one of those areas, swing on in and dig the tunes. Unfortunately, they’re playing on dates I have to work and in towns many miles away from me. I can only assume this is because they hate awesome cities like San Diego. Its okay though. We still like them. I guess.
Anyways, also check out one of the girls playing a cover of Hamilton’s “History Has Its Eyes on You”. I think its Aubrey playing. She’s the cellist in the group. Wait, is Cellist even the right word? Maybe its Celloute… Cellgonian… Cellmonger… Also, check out our superfunamazingwow interview with Aubrey and Angela on Atomic Moocast #118! Good stuff.
The Doubleclicks people! The Doubleclicks were on our show! This show! Finally! And I think we impressed them. Well, probably not, but the geek folk-duo singing sisters (Angela and Aubrey Webber) are on this latest episode of the Atomic Moocast, and we’re now better people for it. The ladies (I had to learn that one) are currently on a summer tour and early last June we recorded an interview with them to discuss the tour, new songs, being creative, and how not to kill your sibling. Turns out they are really good at that. Anyways, it was extremely cool of them to be on our sputtering little podcast and we’re now even bigger fans of theirs!
Also, we’re really sick on this podcast. One of the reasons (usually its just my laziness) this podcast is later than normal is that both Jason and I got taken down by some alien cold/flu combo. It kicked the hell out of us, but we persevered and produced the podcast all the same. Still, please excuse all the coughs and snorts at the intro portion of the show.
So here we go folks! This Moocast is a fresh steaming pile of podcasting excellence just ready to be poured down your ear holes! Now would be the time to go grab a fizzy soda, some salty snacks, and a comfy chair. Then just settle in and let us dominate your brain for a little less than an hour. We’ll try not to muss it up too much…

Okay El Moochadores, I’ve been kind of absent the last few days, so I apologize for the lack of posts. However; I’m taking most of the day to get caught up on announcements and reviews, and maybe even post a new Moocast! So, yeah – lot’s to do!
Let’s kick things off with a shout out to one of our favorite geek bands, the Doubleclicks! Recently the Doubleclicks (sisters Angela and Aubrey Webber) announced a 30 city summer tour to celebrate five years of music fun. Here’s a bit of press release to fill you in on the details and get you all fired up for tickets:
What do you get when you combine two sisters with a cat keyboard, nerdy lyrics, serious musical chops, and 30 cities? It’s the Doubleclicks, Portland’s beloved geeky folk-pop duo, and they’re going on tour across the US and Canada this summer! Find them at comic shops, gamer bars, libraries, and more: there will be an all-ages show in every city, so everyone can enjoy catchy tunes that tackle everything from breakfast and cats to childhood bullying and social anxiety.
In addition to hits from previous albums and new material, Angela and Aubrey Webber will perform their 2015 album, “President Snakes,” which spent two weeks on the Billboard Comedy Top 10. President Snakes is a fictional presidential candidate invented by the duo, who is five snakes wearing a suit pretending to be a person. Is this political commentary? No one is quite sure.
Keen. Though I couldn’t help but notice they’re not coming to San Diego. WTF Doubleclicks, you don’t like awesome? Anyways, if you’re lucky enough to live in, or near, one of the cities on the tour list you can get tour info here. Also, check out a couple of their music videos below.
Post Script: Doubleclicks, do our damn podcast already!
Featuring Walking Dead 8 Bit Parody, The Infinite Crisis Sound Track, and The Leviathan!
Hello El Moochadores and I hope you’re having a happy morning. Or, at least an okay morning. Or, at the very least, you have an escape route planned and your car will start. In any case, we got some cool stuff to share with you today. Below check out the sound track (Batman Theme) to the new Infinite Crisis game, a new Cinefix 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, and this amazing proof of concept short film called the Leviathan
It’s all good.
The Walking Dead (Part 1!) – 8 Bit Cinema
Cinefix recently produced a new 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, which is really cool, but dammit, just start making these games already. I would play this. If this was on a mobile device (phone, tablet, watch… what ever), I would totally pay to play this. A little. I would pay a little. A reasonable amount. Anyways, this represents the first two season’s of AMC’s hit zombie show. According to the youtube page, there’s a Part 2 soon to be released.
Infinite Crisis Video Game Soundtrack – Batman Theme – OFFICIAL
Check out the Batman theme for the new Infinite Crisis game.the music was produced by Water Tower Music. I haven’t yet played Infinite Crisis, so I don’t have an opinion on the game, but the music sounds pretty great!
The Leviathan — Teaser
Many of you have probably already seen this floating across the internet, because it’s rad, but check out The Leviathan, a short “Proof of Concept Teaser.” It was created by Ruairi Robinson and scripted by Jim Uhls, the screenwriter of Fight Club. The first rule of Leviathans… sorry, I had to. holy shit, I’m going back to bed.
