Awesomness: JoCo and Friends Perform 'Still Alive' via Rock Band

Musician and generally awesome entertainer, Jonathan Coulton, organized a big concert bash in San Francisco this weekend in honor of a DVD he will be creating of the event. Alas, I was not one of the lucky few to partake in the concert hooligans. Although, I'm west coast, I'm not San Francisco west coast, nor I'm I THAT big of a die hard JoCo fan to either drive the eleven or so hours or to cough up a plane ticket. So, I will be viewing the show via the highly anticipated DVD. Jonathan Coulton just better play "Still Alive" when he plays in my area (you ARE playing in Portland, OR, Jonathan? Right? RIGHT?!? Please?). ;) So, you may imagine my delight in stumbling across this gem of a video of JoCo along with pals, Veronica Belmont (host of Mahalo Daily) Leo Laporte (host of TWiT.tv) and Merlin Mann (of 43 Folders, The Merlin Show, and 5ives) playing the song from the end credits of the game Portal, "Still Alive". And, in case you were wondering, yes, I am also a fan of Portal and "Still Alive". Speaking of Portal, once you view the awesome SanFran concert video, you should also check out this equally awesome flash video (by VG Cats) of "Still Alive".

Enjoy and make sure to have some cake! :)
