Annalee Newitz, awesome human, Dimetrodon fan, and editor-in-chief of io9, asked us to help her make a book trailer for her book “Scatter Adapt and Remember,” a book about mass extinctions. Along with fantastic animator Leigh Lahav, this is what happened:

We wrote a new love song about something that we love very much called “I Love You Like A Burrito!” Watch the really really fun video (featuring a lot of you wonderful people) on YouTube and download the song on Bandcamp!
This song also will also be on our next album AND in the 2014 song vault that some Kickstarter backers will be hearing about VERY SOON! This is part of our new “Monthly Song Monday” project which will happen on the third Monday of the month all year! YAY!
We got to be guests on TableTop, Wil Wheaton’s webseries about games on Geek & Sundry, and this seemed like the kind of thing we should write a song about. So we did! We tried to include the names of every game played on the show. This has got a lot of new things for us in it, including a special appearance and verse by the amazing Adam WarRock!!
UPDATE: you can now watch our episode of TableTop!
UPDATE: this project is over now! We raised $80,923! Thank you for your support!

If I had to wrap the year up in one video, I’d do it this way:
Nothing to Prove was by far the best, most fun, most important thing we’ve ever participated in. Thanks to a concept by the amazing Josh A. Cagan and contributions from geek girls and peoples from around the world, this video happened, and it touched people—it inspired people to send us their own stories (and submit them to the Geek Girl tumblr), to buy t-shirts that raised over $500 for AppCamp4Girls… and it felt so, so special. Thank you so much. If that was the only thing that happened this year, we would have considered it a success.
To illustrate, here’s a wonderful bit of photoshopping by Alice Lee:
But I guess that’s not all… what else happened this year? Continue reading
This week is the last Weekly Song Wednesday of the year!
