Valve Software's 2007 video game "Portal" was an instant classic. Fans were immediately won over by the game's unique, physics-based challenges, innovative portal gun and sharp comedy. But beyond the dark humor and diabolical puzzles was a hidden gem for players who were able to make it to the end: a witty and humorous song called "Still Alive". Singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton was the man behind the infectiously catchy Easter egg song. But, in an interview with CBS News, JoCo -- as he's known to fans -- showed why he's more than a one-hit wonder.
Coulton recently came out with his eighth album, "Artificial Heart". As he explains in the video above, he doesn't exactly have a name for his particular genre of geek-friendly, comedic folk songs. But like any artist, Coulton decided to write about what he knows. For Coulton, a former computer programmer, that meant singing about the 9-to-5 grind of a cubicle worker in "," the pharmaceutical euphoria of over-medication in " ," and... . Sure, why not?
CBS News was lucky enough to get HERE for tour dates. Or if you want to take your fandom to the next level, a seven-day cruise around the Caribbean with JoCo and some of his closest friends might work.
