Awesome Sauce Music Friday! The Deep Sea Dwelling Anglerfish Never Has to Find a Mate Edition

Do you feel a little twitch in your toes? Is there an extra groove in your step? Don’t worry. That’s just your bod telling you that it’s time for Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Today we bestow some love on the anglerfish, that terrifying deep see fish. (Admittedly, not as terrifying as the goblin shark, but still. Not cuddly.) Hey, everybody needs a little appreciation now and again... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! String < Yarn Edition

Hello, darlings! It’s Friday, and, even though it’s summer (maybe especially because it’s summer) it’s time to rock out to science. This week we’re featuring a song by Sarah Donner. I was not familiar with her before her new single blew up in the science-y corners of the Internet this week. It’s called The Rebuttal of Schrödinger’s Cat, but it feels more ... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday: Science Riot Grrls Edition

OK, so I’ve been a bit busy since school got out for the summer so I’m just now running across this song. However, it’s so amazing that I must feature it for Awesome Sauce Music Friday. There is nothing I love more than seeing young people getting excited about science. (I’m looking at you, Teen Skepchick reader!) Well, these girls were so excited that they wrote a song and... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Butterfly in the Sky Edition

Yo, loyal Teen Skepchick readers. It’s me again, ready to bust out of the weekday slump and rocket into the weekend. This week, we’ll be riding on a rainbow. I’m sure you’ve heard by now of LeVar Burton’s wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to bring back Reading Rainbow (of sorts). I’m a bit older than you are (probably), but I have fond memories of watching ... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Roller Coaster Gamma Ray Ride Edition

Earlier this week some exciting news ripped through the astronomical community. A possible gamma ray burst was detected super close to us, in the Andromeda Galaxy. This was a big deal because it would have been the closest such event we’ve ever witnessed. I say would have because it turned out to all be a mistake. Le sigh. But that’s not going to keep us from using the opportunity to l... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Call Up Jennifer Walters, Attorney-at-Law Edition

Yay! It’s Friday! Whomp whomp! You may have heard by now what screenwriter David S. Goyer (of Man of Steel fame) said about She-Hulk. If you’re in the dark, basically he said that the only appeal of the Jennifer Walters alter ego was a sex object. He said that She-Hulk only existed to have sex with the Hulk. Which is bananas because anyone who knows anything about comic books (which th... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Summer of Loving Edition

Ahhhhh…it’s Friday. My finals are over. It’s time to jam. It’s been a pretty exciting few days for supporters of marriage equality. In the past week both Arkansas and Idaho struck down their gay marriage bans. In law school, my primary area of research was the status of same-sex couples across the United States. For a while, state marriage bans were falling like dominoes an... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Hauting Churches at Night Edition

Happy Friday, everyone! Time to rock. We’ve featured music from Australian musical comedy group The Axis of Awesome. As their name suggests, they are awesome. They are probably most famous for their song Four Chords, which hilariously mocks the similarity of pop songs. In this week’s song, though, they mock religion. Specifically, the Holy Trinity and how nobody knows what the heck the... »
