Has there been any contestant on a singing or dancing TV competition that has performed something "nerdy", such as songs from video games, cartoons, or Internet media? The one example I can think of is a Dancing with the Stars routine to Super Mario.
I work a typical 9-5 job. Sometimes my job is routine, sometimes it is project management, sometimes it is complex thought. I am getting tired of listening to the same couple of albums at work, so I am extremely interesting in finding some new music that I could work to. [more inside]
For a project I'm currently working on as part of my graduation in Graphic Design, I wanted to compile something like an atlas of fictional cities. These may be from books, legends, stories, video games, advertisements, comics, really whatever...

I play clarinet in an orchestra that exclusively plays video game music, and there's an opportunity to a solo or small ensemble piece in the next concert if you can come up with your own music. Although I took two semesters of music theory, I don't think I'd be able to arrange anything involving piano- I'm looking for something that could be done with one to three wind instruments. Any ideas?
Fallout 3 (trailers) and BioShock both have a strangely appealing music they play for mood in places. I'd like to hear more of it. Any idea what I'd call it, or how I'd find more of it? [more inside]
