Awesome Sauce Music Friday! It’s a Big Universe and We’re Not Edition

What’s that, calendar? Today is a boring, ol’ Friday? Wrong! It’s an awesome sauce music Friday! I’m a sucker for songs about space and the universe. (You may have guessed from past posts.) I’m also a sucker for Marian Call, a stellar (see what I did, there?) singer/songwriter from Alaska. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Call has released an album of cover songs, some... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! #Ferguson Edition

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! #Ferguson Edition

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the turmoil in Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, MO. Protests erupted after a police officer shot and killed Mike Brown, a black youth. That alone is tragic enough, but since then things escalated, in no small part because of a confluence of race tensions and police militarization. Luckily, things seem to be calming down. However, it’s important to ... »

Hey-o! It’s Friday! Time for your weekly dose of nerd music. This week we have one of our favorite YouTubers, Hank Green of the Vlogbrothers. He has some really great songs about quarks and the Fermi paradox, as well as many other topics. But this week we’re featuring a catchy song about the weirdness of the universe. Enjoy, and have a great weekend! Want more music? Check out Lab Trac... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Fantasy Elements Edition

It’s time! Time to get your weekend on! Let’s go. We here at Teen Skepchick have a soft spot for Marian Call. We’ve featured her music a couple of times in this very spot. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her in person (though I would not presume to think she remembers) and she’s an absolute delight. She has a new album of cover songs, including the theme from Reading... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Scully <3 Science

We here at Teen Skepchick like ourselves some science. Love it, even. But you know who loves science even more? Agent Dana Scully from the 1990s-early aughts sci-fi serial ‘The X-Files.’ To illustrate just how much Scully loves science, YouTuber (there must be a better term for that) Ryan English made a dance-able supercut of every time Scully demands some science. It’s probably ... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Seething Edition

Happy Friday, everyone! Time to kick off the weekend right with a little awesome sauce music. This week, though, we have something a little different. But it’s pretty cool so I think you’ll like it. Andy Lomas is a digital artist. He created a virtual model for cell growth, and with it we can watch as sculptures inspired by biology grow. According to io9, he got together with techno-pr... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! One of the Guys Edition

If you’ve never heard of Jenny Lewis, don’t worry. Neither had I. At least until this little song floated into my inbox from Teen Skepchick contributor floatingmanatee, aka Alice. Lewis (who apparently loves rainbow pantsuits) has been around the music scene for almost two decades as a member of various groups. Now, she’s coming out with her third solo album, The Voyager. Her fir... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Trogdor Edition

You guys, I have some excellent news. Homestar Runner is coming back. Actually, if you don’t know what Homestar Runner is, I don’t blame you. Once a staple of the Internet, it shuttered its doors in 2008. The website was basically just a bunch of silly cartoons, from the eponymous Homestar, to Strong Bad, to Teen Girl Squad. And, of course, there’s Trogdor the Burninator, the wei... »
