These really grow on you. I'm particularly fond of Mad About You.

I would download that Mad About You tune.

I'm mad about you
I'm so fucking mad
I'm mad about you....

I love how every intro features an HBO opening, as if to make it look more legitimate for someone actually looking for an intro.

The boy meets world one accurately describes the feeling one has watching boy meets world reruns in the mid-00s.

At my age, I'm just happy anyone's still bothering to troll people my age!

Also, I'm looking forward to Helwig's upcoming "sensual pop songs" about Jesus.

He has vastly improved the opening theme to The Gilmore girls.

Love the X-Files groove, but it needs more lyrics.

X-Files!

X-Files!

In these messed up times. It's about a boy, a girl and a whole lotta crimes.

X-Files!

I need you to-night. Gonna watch with the lights turned up bright.

X-Files!

X-Files!

Holy cow this is amazing. I did not believe Hawaii Five-O could be improved upon.

man, i love stuff like this. Weird twitter, weird internet, new weird fiction. Its all good stuff.

This is pretty great. It reminds me of The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, who sadly since leaving Seattle appear to have become a mediocre kinder pop band, but about 10 years ago, they would play shows with projected found slides on the stage with songs written to create a narrative around the collection of random old slides. Here is their website. I can't find anything of their old shows.

I would love to see this guy's live show.

Holy shit, the Cowboy Bebop one is fantastic.

The Game of Thrones one is a legitimately great song.

But-- I-- you-- what?

Yes! The GoT song needs to be an actual song. George RR Martin should listen to it while writing. Every time the vocalist sings "game of thrones", he introduces a new character! (Actually I'm pretty sure this is already what happens.)

I like the GoT, GI Joe, and Cowboy Bebop themes as songs.

I tried to post the first as My Jam, but apparently it's restricted somehow.

So, is he touring?
