I less than three George Hrab

5th May 12 (Sat) Leave a comment

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).

George Hrab :: Trebuchet

21st Jun 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

George Hrab‘s 6th album, Trebuchet, is now officially out.  It’s available in its entirety on his podcast feed (actually many science & skeptical thinking podcasts’ feeds)…

Buy the physical CD or mp3 from CDBaby.  It’s also available on iTunes, but I think CDBaby is a better company, in the long run.  Support indie music!

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).

Geo Album #6

Mr. George Hrab has announced the name for his upcoming 6th studio album… Trebuchet.  Take a glimpse at possibly a teaser for the artwork (below).  I say possibly, as this e-postcard of sorts is the first inkling of images / names for the album.

Anyway, I’m stoked for album #6.  Geo puts out some great content each week in his podcast, and his albums are like little packets of goodness.

Lycksele Murbo

1st Aug 08 (Fri) 6 comments

Well, we went to the Cincinnati IKEA last week when we were out that way for a wedding… that place is a freakin’ maze…

We found some lovely things that might suit us… you know, things like a gorm, norden, lycksele murbo, malm with an observatör, galant, and ramberg. All of those things listed above are things that we might think of buying when we move into our new house… but had I not written them down (with more detail), I’d have no idea what we wanted anymore.

The names of products at IKEA are absolutely ridiculous. Here’s a parody snippet from the Geologic Podcast:
