Nickelodeon has finally agreed to start showing blocks of 90s programming sure to set a generation to glee once it starts to air.
You can see the promo for it here on spoilertv.com. I’m very excited personally. I mean, Salute Your Shorts was my thing on Nick when I was younger. Right up there with Hey Dude and Hey Arnold and Keenan and Kel and All That and the original Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and Pete and Pete.
There are so many shows, and they all remind me of a slightly less complicated time (though to be fair, not that less complicated). I’ve already warned everyone in our home to expect some serious DVRing on Monday nights when it starts.
As it is, I’ll keep myself occupied with Ren and Stimpy and Rocko’s Modern Life on NickToons at 3am. I know that it may seem strange, but really, this is no where near weird for me.
One of the most underused instruments in music to me is the organ. Specifically rock music, but most music in general could be improved with a little organ. There is especially something about the electric organ twisting around an electric guitar that just gets to me.
Here’s my top five songs that incorporate the electric organ beautifully:
So, while this posts, I’ll actually be at the movie theater, seeing some Vry Srs Bsns known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, parts one and motherfucking two already. I know, you are amazed.
In keeping with this awesomeness, I’m just giving you some suggestions for music to get you in the mood. Two HP inspired bands, and with the tracks that I would recommend, because they are some of my favorites.
Harry and the Potters
I recommend Vernon Dursley, which is from their album Priori Incantatem. You can find it at the bottom of their music page.
Draco and the Malfoys
I recommend Potions, off of their self-titled debut album, the very first track. You can find it closer to the bottom of their listen page. (You can actually download several of their tracks for free, very lovely indeed.)
I hope you enjoy! If you have any suggestions, let me know, ’cause I love the geekdom.
