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).

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…

Glen Phillips on Adam Carolla podcast

Glen Phillips, lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, made an appearance on the crude but hilarious Adam Carolla podcast… here’s the teaser video:

Here’s the podcast link (or subscribe in iTunes).

I haven’t listened yet, but I’m a big fan of both Glen and Adam… and it is bound to be interesting nonetheless.

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).

This is by far one of the funniest pictures I have seen in a while… I mean, what’s going on? The kid cracks me up, the guy in the back pulling his pants up (or down), the dancing ladies… what the hell is going on?

I saw the pic above a few days ago, and it has since been shown to be a clever photoshop job (original photo of kid), but it still cracks me the hell up.

B.P.D.

(originally posted to the old Over the Rhine Actwin list)

It relates to the Over the Rhine song “B.P.D.” on the 2-CD Ohio.

actually, Karin has gone into great lengths about
it. it truly means Border’s Panini Dijon. It was
a limited time release at their cafe, and apparently
she really loved the yummy sandwiches. when they
discontinued them, things got a little “heated” (to
say the least) between the band and several of the
cafe staff. Karin even asked for the recipe, but
Border’s non-compete clause with their employees
wouldn’t allow them to release the recipe… hence
this line:

I’d make it alright
But I wouldn’t get it right
I’m leavin’ it alone

the *real* kicker was how they were driving her to
a slow suicide “just one bite at a time.” she’s over
it now… that’s why the band keeps pimping “filet
mignon” in all of their interviews this album. if
things hadn’t gone south with Border’s, OtR would
have been pimping the BPD Meal Deal during all of
their interviews.

if you don’t believe me, well, there are still marks
on the walls by the espresso machine at the Tri-County
Border’s.

no, the real answer to your questions are: yes and yes.
