Ad hoc, virtual Jonathan Coulton cover band The Mandelbrot Set (born in the forums, like all other crazy schemes) has completed their first cover, a soothing version of Re: Your Brains. It’s quite nice, and were it not for the subject matter I’d say it would be right at home on some Wes Anderson soundtrack. But for the moment, it is only available on the internet.
Thanks crazy forum people!
And speaking of crazy forum people, I recently was made aware of a couple of foreign language (to me) Jonathan Coulton areas. Here is this forum for speakers of French: http://joco.forumactif.fr and this fan page for the burgeoning fanbase in Hungary: http://koponyaroppanto.wordpress.com/
There is also this Camp Bachelor cover: www.myspace.com/sparechangequartet
There is also this piano medley: http://spaceparanoids.net/2008/11/joco-medley/
Don’t you people have work to do?
