JG Thirlwell and Steroid Maximus!

Many of you know that I'm a musician, but I'm also a HUGE fan of music in general.  Music of all kinds too - I'm not one to shun a specific genre or style just because it's not how I personally write or perform.  In fact, some of my favorites are the things I would never be able to come up with on my own or with my sisters (band-mates).

The Venture Brothers is one of my all-time fave late-night animated shows; and the opening theme music has definitely caught my ears as well.  It's fabulous, big-band-esque, brassy, brazen orchestral goodness.  The kind of music you don't hear being made anymore.  It's brilliant.

Recently, Mr. C found an amazing video of the Venture Brothers theme music writer, JG Thirlwell, conducting his incredible orchestra side-project Steroid Maximus in a medley of all things Venture.  It's amazing and so fun!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
