Awesome Sauce Music Friday! You’re a Good Kid but You’re Misunderstood Edition

Hello! It’s Friday, so it’s time to get into that weekend mood. This week’s selection is from an artist I’d never heard of before, but she’s utterly delightful. Her name is Allie Goertz, aka Cossbysweater. She sings quiet folk music about very nerdy pop culture topics, like D&D and The Simpsons. The song I chose is about Sam from the short-lived television show Fr... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Money is the Root of Sin Edition

It’s Friday! Time. To. Rawk. Well…sort of. This week’s featured song doesn’t really have anything to do with science or feminism or social justice. But it’s awesome. Monty Python, the British comedy group from the 1970s, is getting back together for a reunion show. (You have to be a little geeky to like Monty Python, right?) Their teasing us with a new music video. It... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Sassy Sidekick, Bitchy Nerd or Neighbor Edition

You’d have to really be living in your own world to miss Lorde’s smash hit “Royals.” Even the sad clown cover has been all over the place. This week’s featured song is a Lorde parody, but it draws attention to serious issues of representation of different races in popular culture. It’s called “Typecast” and it points out the limited range of characte... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Grow the Nanobots Edition

Hello, and happy Friday! Actually, it’s a sad Friday for me because it’s the last day of spring break. Where did all the time go? Oh well, at least I can take solace in the fact that I have not yet been devoured by nanobots like the guys in this week’s featured song. They Might Be Giants, always a favorite of mine, have imagined a world where nanobots rise and take over the plane... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friay! Pi Day!

I’m sorry, you guys. I’m so, so sorry. No, not for the Awesome Sauce Music Friday being late. It’s because of what I’m about to put in front of your eyes and ears. But I have to. Because it’s Pi Day. One thing I love about the Internet is it gives anyone a forum for their art. Sometimes that art is really bad, but it’s still awesome that people get to show it of... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Put Down the Mimosa (Wingardium Leviosa) Edition

I’ve got that Friday afternoon feeling. You know, when you can see the weekend coming at you and it makes it hard to concentrate on actual important things. Yeah, that feeling. If you have those feels, as well, it’s probably a good time to take a break and listen to some sweet tunes. Lucky for you, I’ve got just the thing. There is a musical comedy trio called Axis of Awesome. Th... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Pachycephalosaurus?! Edition

Oof. It’s been a rough week. Lots to deadlines. Lots of work. But now it’s the most awesome sauce day of the week, which means it’s time for some awesome sauce tunes. Who’s with me? You are! Let’s go! We’ve featured They Might Be Giants a lot here on Teen Skepchick. I won’t lie. It’s because I love them so much. And it’s also because they just ... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! We Can Change the World Edition

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! We Can Change the World Edition

Guys, I’m annoyed. My state, Kansas, has once again passed a resolution denying climate change. The original version of the resolution had a bunch of science denying malarkey, the final version cut most of that out. But still. It’s frustrating to live somewhere where there people in charge feel free to ignore established science. So I’m feeling kind of down about my public offici... »
