Here is my super talented, super handsome friend Michael Kohl laying down a take for the big musical number in Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Face the Music.

Be sure to check out his latest project Extra Lives (YouTube channel here). They do intricate covers of video game music, running the gamut of styles, my personal favorite being the Overworld Theme from Super Mario Bros. 2, not just because I love this piece of music, but because you really get a feel for just how intricate and funky it is when you hear it played live with minimal studio intrusion. Musicianship. Can’t beat it.

“Leader of the mischievous gang known as the 8 Bits, Wart used the power of the Dream Machine to conquer Subcon, the world of dreams. However, his distaste of vegetables proved to be his downfall when Mario and his friends fought to liberate the Sobcons from his tyrannous rule. But was it all just a dream?”

you know there’s gotta be football on the moon. you know for a fact people are up there with two craters as the end zones, tackling each other in low gravity. and you know know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that the fucking football has a speaker inside that is constantly blasting the Super Mario Bros 2 overworld theme. maybe they’ve terraformed the place enough that its atmosphere can support sound waves. maybe they haven’t, and the speaker is useless, and no one can hear each other. that’s not going to stop people from ineffectually shouting “JOHN MADDEN” every time they take possession. if a meme ball’s on the moon and no one hears it, it still makes a sound.
