Re: Jonathan Coulton
Jonathan Coulton used to write computer programs. Now he writes about programmers–his songs like Code Monkey are funny, occasionally melancholy ballads about geek culture: burnt-out code warriors, zombie office workers and mournful, lonely sea monsters.
In this interview, Coulton discusses the connection between crafting code and crafting songs, the new NPR show Ask Me Another (Coulton is a regular panelist) and how he feels about being compared to a Snuggie.
On Sunday, February 12th, 2012 at 8 p.m., Coulton will open for They Might Be Giants at Track 29 in Chattanooga.
