Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 24th December – Don’t Sail There No More – Misbehavin’ Maidens

We started the year with a NSFW song, so lets end it on another one!

Last year, the post which had a song by the Misbehavin’s Maidens was the most read post of the year, so I figured why not repeat that, but more to the point its a good nerdy, filhy ditty!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 21st December – 100 Percent – SΔMMUS

SΔMMUS is a rapper, who on the surface, sounds quite mainstream, you could easily mistake her for a muggle rapper.

But come on, look at the her name, and then listen to her music, yeah she is one of us!

But lets not undersell her, she has mainstream connections as well, her brother is part of Gym Class Heroes, and she cites influences as diverse as Weezer and Kayne West

And as for herself, wow, what a woman, she has a PhD in Science and Technology from Cornell, I mean that’s impressive.

What I love about her music though, is the way she blends nerd topics, with African beats, and stuff that’s quite ordinary. I absolutely love that she makes music which celebrates blackness and her interests without pigeonholing herself whatsoever!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 22nd December – Skullcrusher Mountain – Jonathan Coulton

JoCo is no stranger to this list, although this is his sole entry in the list this year.

so why not go with his signature songs, and the idea of a half-monkey, half-pony monster!

I loved playing this in Rock Band back in the day, its a great little song with lots of funny imagery!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 21st December – I Ship It – The PDX Broadsides

We return to The PDX Broadsides whom I featured back on the 5th, and this is a nice little song about shipping.

Shipping is a fandom term for Relationshipping in which is the desire by the fandom to see specific people enter a romantic, or perhaps even just a sexual relationship.

And lets face it we have all done some shipping, and why not, sometimes characters will just work, hence why its often done in fan fiction

Lindsay is a fan of a specific form of shipping called slash!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 20th December – A Song for People Who Never Watch Star Trek – Warp 11

If you know me, then you know I am a massive massive Trekkie, I mean my earliest memory is watching Space Seed on a black and white TV in my parents sitting room in a block of flats while playing with my A-Team van as Paul cried because he wanted the van off me!

Anyway, I cannot even say how much I absolutely love Star Trek, and I don’t care which series it is, even the rubbish episodes have something for them.

So of course I love any kind of Star Trek music, and Warp 11 are some of my favourites.

Yet there are still people who never watch Star Trek and I find that super weird!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 19th December – All In Together – Professor Elemental

Is it weird that this is in its third year and yet Professor Elemental has only appeared thus far as a featured artist, and now in entry 67 of the series does he finally make an appearance on his own!

Well this is a great song about how being weird is good!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 18th December – On The Planet Earth – Danielle Ate The Sandwich

I really like this song, its sweet, its folksy, and I really quite like the Ukulele for stuff like this, and this song features Jack Conte, who has a style I really like.

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 17th December – Kilogram – The Doubleclicks

The Doubleclicks have their second entry of the year, with the song Kilogram from their Love Problems album.

Its a cool little ditty about the replacement of the International Prototype of the Kilogram with a mathematically formula the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015×10−34 when expressed in the unit J⋅s, which is equal to kg⋅m2⋅s−1, where the metre and the second are defined in terms of c and ΔνCs .

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 16th December – Fuck You – Garfunkel & Oates

Despite the title, this is a pretty sweet love song by Garfunkel & Oates, who are Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, both of whom you will likely have seen on a TV show or two!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2021 – 15th December – My Hope – Molly Lewis

This is delayed due to still being ill, curses I wish it would disappear and let me get on with life!

Molly writes the most wonderful songs, and started out by covering songs by the likes of Lady Gaga and Britney Spears in her ukulele.

But she has moved on to her own original songs and this one is rather lovely and really do encourage you all to give it a listen.
