History has shown that Star Wars fans will buy anything. Food, sheets, underwear—anything with Star Wars on it sells. Well, maybe not “anything.” They seem to be pushing the boundaries with their latest creation, an electronic dance album.
This is so awesome: musician Chris Kiley, who’s written songs about a bunch of geeky things has put together an Expanse inspired song that’s basically the belter’s equivalent of The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
To anyone who ever tells you that programming isn’t creative, show them this. In this video, Sébastien Rannou recreates the whole of Daft Punk’s “Aerodynamic” using just a hundred or so lines of code. And it sounds pretty damn great.
With good news, comes the bad, John Carpenter fans. The acclaimed genre director and composer will be releasing Lost Themes II on April 15, a follow-up to last year’s soundtrack-esque Lost Themes. And he’ll be touring—but to Spain, Iceland, and England only.
Our sorrowfully gone alien-icon David Bowie has been eulogized for many things today—for his music, obviously, and for his fashion, and for the particular transcendent way he put the world forward with his imagination and lack of concern for convention, including gender. But we’d also like to note Bowie for his…
David Bowie was much more than a musician or an actor. He was an icon, a force of pop culture that affected countless people through his incredible career. Here’s what the incomparable David Bowie has meant to all of us at io9 and Gizmodo.
David Bowie’s death hit all of us hard. But Lou Anders, award-winning editor and author of the Thrones and Bones trilogy, wrote an especially eloquent tribute, explaining how Bowie threw the creative gauntlet down as a challenge for the rest of us.
David Bowie, who just died of cancer aged 69, had an incalculable impact on pop culture throughout his shape-shifting career. But perhaps more than any other musician, he also had a tremendous impact on science fiction. He changed the way we thought about the alien, the uncanny, and the familiar.
I’ve been a fan of nerd-rockers Kirby Krackle for a couple of years now: the band released their fifth album, Mutate, Baby!, and more recently, released a new video for their track, ‘We Had A Good Run’. We chatted with them about their music and rocking out to geek culture.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
Happy Sunday! Welcome to the first edition of Holy Shift, where we highlight big innovations in the auto and racing industries each week—whether they be necessary or simply for comfort.
Watching this video might make you want to go back to Jack Black’s school of rock. Here’s Black, and Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass, performing one of the greatest movie themes of all time: Queen’s “Flash Gordon.” Aaaaaaaa!
Notorious B.I.G. and Star Wars aren’t exactly two things that you’d think would work well together, but Solar Slim and Richie Branson have proven that wrong with Life After Death Star.
I’m going to be the first person to admit that quite frankly, I have no idea what compelled me to watch Skrillex’s new video for his remix of GTA’s “Red Lips.” But, just under four minutes later, I’m equally astounded at the weirdly funky mutant disco rave it depicted in between the oontz-oontz-oontzing.
The modern piano evolved rapidly in the first 150 years after its invention, but it is now so good, acoustically, that it probably won’t change much more in the future.

The music video for David Bowie’s latest, Blackstar, premiered in NYC earlier today. It needed a full theatrical release, because it’s a 10-minute trip through an impossibly weird sci-fi cult. Quintessential Bowie, basically.
