* ShoutOut: Expected from someone as BlackAndNerdy as Bino is. Shout outs include Music/{{Radiohead}}, Music/ArcadeFire, Music/SufjanStevens, Film/{{Tron}}, WesternAnimation/InvaderZim, Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, WesternAnimation/AdventureTime, Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, Creator/KurtVonnegut, internet memes and much, much more. Each one seems to show that Bino's not just throwing references out and that he's a real fan of everything he does shout out.

Added DiffLines:

** This line from "That Power", which Bino is reportedly very proud of:
-->"Uncool, but lyrically I'm a stone cold killer / so it's [[Film/TheAdventuresOfAntoineDoinel 400 blows]] to these [[Creator/FrancoisTruffaut Truffaut]] niggas."

%%* BittersweetEnding: ''Because the internet.''

%%* * BittersweetEnding: ''Because the internet.''internet'', at ''least'' by some context when compared to [[GainaxEnding the script]].

Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: ''because the internet'' has elements of this, and the short film ''Clapping for All the Wrong Reasons'' showcases this. While it just shows The Boy doing his everyday activities, there's something ''so off'' about, especially near the end. Also helps with the accompanying script.

His career's OlderThanTheyThink, having been releasing music ([[DoingItForTheArt for free!]]) since 2002. In 2010, his successful acting career [[ColbertBump brought in a wave of]] Series/{{Community}} fans, propelling him into widespread popularity (and his appearance on Jamie xx's remix of "[[{{Adele}} Rolling in the Deep]]" didn't hurt).

* {{Nerdcore}}: Was called this a lot at the beginning of his career due to the humor in his lyrics, his lack of 'street cred', and the fact that he was far more famous as a comedy writer (ThirtyRock) and actor ({{Community}}) than as a musician. This label hasn't really been brought up since ''EP'' and ''Camp,'' the two of which made it obvious that there was more to him than geeky references.
