Internet superstar, singer, and songwriter Jonathan Coulton graces us with his presence on today's epic show. He instantly makes us a classy podcast when he plays a couple of tracks off of his new DVD concert album Best. Concert. Ever.
We thought it would be funny to have a SEO-friendly title today (SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.) but we may have gone a little overboard. Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and a couple of other choice words that we're legally not able to write here at CNET weren't in the show title, so we can all be thankful for that.
More importantly, Jonathan Coulton plays his hit songs "Code Monkey" and "Re: Brains" live during the show--a first for The 404--which was actually very special for us. We talk a bit about what it's like quitting your day job at a technology company to go write funny songs for a living. With the recession giving everyone just a little bit more free time, Jonathan encourages us to take chances and write a song about IKEA bookshelves.
Also, Mr. Coulton promotes his upcoming concert album "Best. Concert. Ever." We promise that it's going to knock your socks off. You can buy it directly from him.
If you have any questions or comments, call 1-866-404-CNET (2638). Send us an email the404 [at] cnet [dot] com. Let us know what you think of today's show. Or if you're just lonely at night and need someone to talk to, leave a message, and we'll make fun of you the very next morning.
