Nerd Music: Kirby Krackle

KirbyKrackle

Kirby Krackle is one of the greatest bands of all time.  If you’re not listening to them, then shame on you.  No, this isn’t just bias because their lyrics are heavily comic book driven.  They also have songs about video games and old Saturday morning cartoons!  See, these guys have range!
Kyle Stevens and Jim Demonakos have been rocking the nerd world since 2009 with their self-titled debut album.  Their recent release (“E For Everyone”) even features a full music video for the single “On And On.”  I pulled up an e-chair and sat down with the duo as we discussed the video, their writing process, and various other nerdy things.  Hit the jump for the full interview!

Are They Or Aren't They?: Zangief

RED CYCLONE!
Look at this big guy!   Just look at him!  For those that don’t know, this is Zangief.  His interests are Mother Russia, Mohawks, and Wrestling Bears.  Speaking of “bears,” he seems to match that profile, does he not?  Zangief has been a Street Fighter mainstay since the classic Street Fighter II.  Being such a strong character, Zangief never backs down from a fight.  Even going all out against female characters such as Chun Li or Cammy.  Does that make him a misogynist?  Or could he possibly be hiding something else?
