We’re back! That’s right El Moochadores, we (the intrepid Brothers Moo) have survived yet another swirling storm of disaster and chaos (aka: our lives) and are now (some how) wiser, better looking, and ready to blog. So, let us celebrate this triumphant return by getting back to some cool geek creativity.
Recently Distractotron visited MAGfest 2017 and they brought back a whole bunch of cool photos and video work. MAGfest (Music and Gaming) is a “four day-long event dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community.” According to the website the event runs 24 hours a day (wtf SDCC? get it together!) and offers “consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest.” Cool, maybe Atomic Moo and the Murray Brothers Creative can attend a future MAGfest. We’re cool too, right?
Anyways, check out the videos (parts one and two) below along with a smattering of images taken from the Distractotron Facebook page.
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.
Just a quick post tonight El Moochadores. Now, it may have been you were a Queen fan from way back, or maybe you just dug that scene in Wayne’s World, but I think we can all agree that Bohemian Rhapsody is (and always will be) frigg’n rad. Anyways, check this video from youtubers Corridor Digital and their literal take on the classic 1970’s song! Groovy.
Via Geeks are Sexy; Okay, I’m tired. Deep tired. The kind of tired that makes you hurt for bed. So, in the spirit of wanting to go snore loudly here is a short and simple post about a really cool music mashup between “He’s A Pirate” composed by Klaus Badelt from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and “Dragonborn” composed by Jeremy Soule from The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.”
Hey El Moochadores. It’s getting late and Chudd and I just returned from getting our passes to Comic Con! So, I’m putting the Moocast up online now, but I’ll finish the show notes and links tomorrow sometime. Just so you know though… This Moocast we had an awesome conversation with singer/musician, Marian Call…
and if you listen to the Moocast you’ll hear that she’s sounds as pretty as she looks! Marian is about to start a European tour and has just recently completed a successful Kickstarter project to fund the tour. She was super cool to talk to, and she’s going to be at San Diego Comic Con this weekend so we may get a chance to meet her in person!
Listen past the break to hear our interview with Mrs. (Miss I hope…) Call. Before the interview Chudd and I give out a few hints and tips about getting around the world’s biggest and best comic book convention. Okay, so far… so sloppy, but I promise to get in and clean up this post tomorrow if/when I get a little time. Until then, here’s what you need to do: find cool frosty beverage – find comfy, butt-worn, chair – put butt in chair – sip beverage – then start the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

Well not all just geek tunes. I thought it would also be cool to write a little about this way cool illustration by artist Jayson Weidel. We came across his art work on Planet-Pulp, where (if you follow the link back) you can see some more truly amazing pieces of art by different talented artist. I wish I were a James Bond. Anyways, enough of that and onto The Late Night Moo!
Umm… huh… yeah, I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Take a look at this interesting music video made by the band Savlonic. I’ve never heard of the group before but I found this over on Weebl’s Stuff, and it’s not that I don’t like this video (the animation is really cool and the songs good) it’s just I think it’s kinda disturbing. There’s something so weird about a giant bouncing eye coming out a chicks skull. It’s like an okay dream that turns into a weird nightmare where you’re eating a really great piece of pie while wearing only a pair of boxer shorts, then all of a sudden it grows fangs and attacks your throat, and you want to fight back, but the pencil in your hand is too busy failing a math test and the girl you had a huge crush on in high-school is laughing at the giant hole in your underwear. Then your dog dies. Okay, so the Video isn’t anything like that, but still, that was a fucked up dream. Check out the video and visit Weebl’s stuff for more Savlonic videos. Also, chime in on this one please because I’d really like to know what other people thought about this.
Linkin Park has just released their latest single, Iridescent which is also featured in the upcoming Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon feature film. I’ll admit I’m not the biggest Linkin Park fan, but there are some cool visuals in this and they do a good job of making a crappy franchise look kind of cool. Except Optimus. I don’t what it is, but I get angry every time I see Optimus Prime with a mouth. It bugs me like cardboard rubbing together or nails on a choke board. That’s just me though. Check it out and let us know what you think …about the video. I don’t want to put an open invitation for some right-wing, nut job, to jump on here with some bat-shit crazy conspiracy theories involving Obama and UFO’s. No offense Erik the Odd.
Hey Elmoochadores (is that how Chudd spells it?), Once again I’m writing this on the tail end of a post to encourage you the reader to “Like” us on Facebook. It’s a great way to show your support for the site with out too much effort, and you can get all the gooey Atomic Moo goodness right on your Facebook page everyday (hour, minute, second… we’re like stalkers who won’t strangle you at the end of the night). We appreciate you visiting our site and hope you want to become a part of our growing community. Thanks!
Okay… another day of work behind me. Someday I hope to build a client list big enough to go freelance fulltime, but until then I guess I gotta keep trudging along. Anyways, I thought I’d take a moment to post on something I saw earlier (via NerdBastards.com). It’s a song called“Ring Capacity” and it’s about our favorite space cop with the neatest decoder ring in the universe. It’s performed by a nerd rock band from Seattle called Kirby Krackle; I’ll have to look up more of their songs later tonight. If you want to learn more about them you can visit their Youtube channel, or their website. You can also find them on Facebook. Check out the video below and enjoy!
