My real fans will have noticed Jonathan Coulton's name more than once on my last.fm box to the side of this page. I've become especially drawn to his song "Code Monkey". I suggest you give Jonathan a dollar and download the song and listen to it 8 million times. I also have a deep appreciation for "Re: Your Brains" and you've probably heard his cover of a Mix-A-Lot classic. Jonathan also had a guest appearance on yesterday's The Show. He's also featured in a two-part interview on Merlin Mann's "The Merlin Show".
Out of a frothy mixture of hope and curiosity, I checked out his upcoming shows, and was pleasantly surprised to see Wisconsin listed! But ... PLOVER?!?!?! I only live in Manitowoc and even I think Plover is in the middle of nowhere.
Jonathan reminds me of an ex-coworker Pascal, who has an album out of his own. They both wear glasses and have shaggy hair (well Pascal did when I knew him around 11 years ago). There are some other similarities but I really just wanted to give Pascal a plug since he's a nice guy.
Anyway, I'll leave you with this clip of Jonathan performing the aforementioned Code Monkey. Enjoy.
