    Meet the world's only "extreme chiptune dance metal band:" Denver's Rainbowdragoneyes

    The past is all the rage and it has been for some time, including in music, where certain sounds can instantly transport the listener to a different place and time. Particularly during childhood and adolescence, these tunes make up the soundtracks to our lives. To some, myself included, such powerfu ... More >>

    Robots attack Denver! Top 10 androids that would really spell trouble for downtown

    ​Yesterday, an 8-inch toy robot stuck to a pillar near Coors Field triggered hours of havoc downtown, culminating in the Denver bomb squad detonating the innocuous figurine in a hullabaloo of wondrous proportions. Wondrous, but also completely unnecessary. Clearly the little bugger wasn't out ... More >>

    Nix Bros. celebrate Denver in hilarious hipster parody

    Got a tip on this hilarious video for the band Question Block (nice Nintendo reference, by the way) and their song "All You Haters (Suck My Balls)" and we can't think of a better way to start off a Monday. The song itself is a funny self-parodying blast of hipster-hate, which we can totally get b ... More >>

    Ideal Fathers branch out into chiptunes

    It's a very chiptunes Christmas

    I hate Christmas music -- hate it. It's dull, overly familiar and absolutely inescapable at this time of year. On the other hand, I've been moderately obsessed with so-called chiptunes, music inspired and/or made by vintage video-game machines. So, when I ran across this collection of 8-bit chiptune ...

    Regardless of taste or aspiration, great artists are bound to fail every now and again.
