I less than three George Hrab

Podcaster George Hrab has been my favorite free entertainment for a LONG time.  Since late 2007 or so, when I got into his funny & insightful podcast called the Geologic Podcast, he’s been my favorite near-hour of entertainment that gets put out nearly every week.

An all around great chap, his latest podcast (#262) featured a few hilarious “old timey” songs performed by “Manfreedy Johnson and the Nineteens“…

Beyond being a funny guy, a skeptic, and a thinker, he’s also a professional musician and has six full-length studio albums out (GO HERE to LISTEN).

Things have been slow on the music front for me… not as many concert reviews.  I saw The Termals (and others) last night at the Eugene Celebration.  No review forthcoming, but The Thermals were super rad.  I definitely need to get more into them, and I’d definitely recommend seeing them if they come through your town.

Despite my lack of reviews the past month, don’t worry, I’ll be digging back in soon with Music Fest NW in early September and then kick more into gear in the fall when the bands make their inevitable “back to school” tours.

Now for something completely different…

Twitter Concerto #1

25th Oct 09 (Sun) 2 comments

George Hrab puts out the best almost hour of new content each week via his Geologic Podcast.  As of late, he also tweets roughly 10 jokes a day, too (amidst working on his 6th studio album, Trebuchet).  His tweets are usually quite punny… which means… awesome!

Some of my starred feeds from him:

  • Owls make great census workers.
  • I wonder how frogs describe it to each other when they hear someone died.
  • If Al Green where Indonesian, I think he should have sung “Let’s Satay Together.”
  • Both Philip and Ira’s faces momentarily lit up when they saw the sign for “Glass Blowing.”
  • When I was your age my idea of X-Box was what I used for break dancing.
  • You ever hear the one about the Eskimo who didn’t like making igloos?  He just wasn’t that Inuit.
  • I would love to watch Frank Gehry and I.M. Pei play Jenga.
  • Chunky peanut butter: appealing. Chunky regular butter: not so much.
  • Personally, I’d rather think outside the envelope and push the box.

Well, Geologic Podcast #137 (link) has a special feature where it mostly consists of the Twitter Concerto #1 – his reading of some of his tweets over some improv music.  It’s funny.  (Warning: not for kids – there is some dirty language).
