The Nerdapalooza Live CD 2009 compilation release

It feels like Nerdapalooza has only just passed, as the memories are still fresh in my mind. Although, if you feel like if it has been far too long since hearing a huge list of tons of live nerd music, then you are in luck! Hex has announced that the Nerdapalooza Live CD 2009 is now available. The all live CD plays host to 19 tracks recorded over Nerdapalooza weekend in Florida on July 11-12th. The album is available in compact disc form for $10. That is practically 50 cents a song! Not only is that a reasonably low price, but all the money raised from the album, much like Nerdapalooza proper, is donated to the Child's Play Charity.

So you get 19 amazing tracks, and help hospitalized children for the holidays. What could be better than that? Oh yeah, if you head over to the proper Nerdapalooza.org post you can download 9 more tracks for free.

My Parent's Favorite Music - Testing the Waters album release


Big news, HUGE NEWS, The highly anticipated new album Testing the Waters from My Parent's Favorite Music has finally been released. After the baffling ordeal that happened earlier this year, Steffo of MPFM returns from Japan and drops this amazing 9 song album for the masses. The album is available through the MPFM website for the price of $10, and for your troubles you also get an awesome sticker and button. Here is some more info straight from Steffo himself about the album.

The new album and 1st of set of 6, highly (not really highly) detailed pieces of a map. These will be the albums that I'll be working on until I croak. These won't be masterpieces, but they will be a good amount of my life summed up into these tiny little packages of paper and plastic. Every bit of this thing was put together by myself with the help of some of my online buddies.
