In keeping with our love for songs that are listenable but pretty much impossible to sing along with, Hard ‘n Phirm presents: “Gersberms (Yer Gervin Mah)” featuring Hayley Williams (from Paramore), Melissa Rauch (from Big Bang Theory), and an excitable little foreign dude.
I swear it’s not just parents talking about how adorable their kids’ poops are. It’s geeky parents sharing ideas on having fun with geeky kids (and… alright… occasionally mentioning their geeky poops).
If you missed it, “Weird Al” Yankovic has a show over on the Nerdist YouTube channel called Face to Face. In this episode, Al interviews William H. Macy. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but… just watch it, and act surprised at around minute 8:40!
It’s a tribute parody about the geek-themed variety show “w00tstock“, which is itself a geek-themed tribute to the Woodstock festival, created by Paul and Storm, Adam Savage, and Wil Wheaton. (I’m very lucky to have been invited to perform in several of them. They really are little love-fests, like Woodstock, minus the mud and with more “On” buttons.)
It’s a parody of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young’s incredible cover of “Woodstock” (orig. by Joni Mitchell), which you younger fans might not be familiar with, but which you should definitely get.
A few months ago, friends and fellow comedy-musickers, Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci (“Garfunkel and Oates”, respectively) asked me if I’d be up for producing some songs for their first full-length album. I checked with everyone at Phirmilab (computers, instruments, service droids, &c.) and it was a unanimous “1”! So, between September and December of 2010, we recorded about eight songs, six of which are on their new album…
It’s a fun record that I strongly recommend you add to your collection of albums with the word “face” in the title.
(And see if you guys can guess which song I sing back up vocals on it’s “Weed Card”.)
NOTE: The other tracks on the album were produced by excellent musician, producer, and great guy, Eban Schletter. (He’s made music for Mr. Show, Spongebob, Drunk History, and most recently, he’s been the audio architect behind the brilliant Paul F. Tompkast.)
