There is nothing wrong with having above average intelligence, a borderline unhealthy relationship with the internet and a taste for mayonnaise; celebrate your inner geek and for those with a special geek in their life, show them you appreciate every poorly defined muscle in their bodies. Geek-lovers, I know what you're thinking. I’ll buy them a subscription to New Scientist magazine, the latest Sims game or a non-Newtonian liquid to play with (A.K.A custard that becomes hard when force is applied); we’re geeks, we already have all that stuff.
WTF with Marc Maron Podcast Ira writes: Right now, pretty much every comedian without a network TV show has his own podcast, but Marc Maron's WTF Podcast, here on the web or here on iTunes has distinguished itself as the New York Times of comedy podcasts, and by that I mean the definitive comedy podcast of record. Start with the two-part expose/investigative report into how Carlos Mencia steals other comedians' material, which begins in Part One with Mencia totally denying any wrongdoing and continues in Part Two with other comedians coming forward with evidence and Mencia rushing to Marc's house from the airport, no kidding, to finally cop to his wrongdoing.

8bitpeoples From the depths of his sophomoric yet mischievous mind, Doomcloud has returned to unleash his latest creation, The Masquerade. This album is aggressively smothered with four original NES productions that even the Underworld would approve of. Please experience these tunes at your own risk. The day Radlib was asked to play Blip Festival NYC 2012, he immediately had the idea to put his own spin on some of his all-time favorite chiptune tracks. The result: four turbocharged dancefloor monsters, collected here in one killer debut EP.

Top 100: Greatest Songs (of All Time) It’s hard to come up with a list of the 100 greatest songs of all time and not leave people out, or be called a “son of a bitch” and other unflattering things by your readers. Nevertheless, inStash goes where not even Rolling Stone magazine has dared to tread. While the famed music publication needed a top 500 to feel comfortable even undertaking such a task, inStash honors the legends of rockers past, country’s greatest crooners, and the songs of today with 100 must-haves for your iPod or MP3 player. Don’t think of this as a top 100 greatest songs so much as a 100 essentials. Ratings themselves are always subjective. This is just inStash’s way of saying that if we could take only a century mark of songs with us through our remaining years, these are the ones we’d pick.
