    What is something that is a little weird/goofy that you love? Bands, songs, shows, books - what do you love?

    Two of my favorite weird bands are Electric Six and Republican Hair. They're both fantastically weird.

    And if you're going to post weird bands you like, I suggest posting samples.

    My musical tastes have been politely referred to as eclectic. I like a lot of different kinds of music, some main stream, others not even close.

    Here's a band that I like, that's pretty dang weird, but this is also one of the coolest videos I've ever seen!

    My girlfriend. She may be a bit more than a "little" weird but does that still count?

    Vonnegut is definitely weird, but amazing. Try out some Chuck Palahniuk (beyond just "Fight Club") if you're looking for another great author who is weird.

    I should have put in examples from my "weird" bands. These are semi-SFW, beware:

    Electric Six - "Danger High Voltage!" (yes, that is Jack White in the chorus):



    Republican Hair - "Miss Prince"



    I drove to Iowa City to watch Republican Hair open for Cadillac Three this spring, and they were just as fun and weird live.

    Not to Touch the Earth is my favorite Doors song. I think that qualifies as a strange song, even for a Doors song.

    Also, I really like the movie Cabin Boy starring Chris Elliott.

    Good choice for a favorite Doors song. Definitely my favorite from "Waiting For the Sun."

    I get into odd obsessions here & there.

    Past couple of years, I've been consumed with a certain niche of nature documentaries, specifically African wildlife and predator/prey interaction. In itself, that might not be unusual. Weird part is, for some reason, I find viewing it relaxing.

    An off-the-wall reading phase I had several years ago was the pop cutlure-and-philosophy series and its ilk. Such as "Seinfeld and Philosophy"; "The Beatles and ...". Etcetera. Also devoured "The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten," which I recommend as a quick-read primer to classic philosophical quandaries.

    I tend to agree with this...I think it's because nothing in those shows happens very quickly, i.e. they film the entire process of a predator stalking something or whatever.

    Also typically there's no music.

    I know you can just mute something, but it's baffling whenever someone makes a youtube video for backpacking/fishing etc. that they have to include some generic rock music with it instead of the sounds that were actually included.
