Awesome Sauce Music Friday


Hello all you lovelies, it is FRIDAY today, and you know what that means? I get to tell you about some of my favorite geeky music. And today’s artist really is the epitome of geeky. I give you…HANK GREEN!

So Hank Green is part of a pair of videobloggers called the vlogbrothers. Along with his brother John, he has been making videos for the past 4 years or so and has created a number of injokes, raised money for tons of charities and generally reduced suck levels in the world. The project started as the two brothers trying to see if they could go a year only communicating face to face, either in person or through videos. From there, it went on to become a phenomenon of awesome.

During that first year, Hank decided that for one of his videos he would write a song and sing it. It caught on, and now he writes music, tours, and is generally a fountain of wonderfully scientific, skeptical, nerdy, wonderful songs. He also started a record company called DFTBA records that supports other youtube artists. That link takes you to the place where you can buy his CDs, but just to give you an idea of how delightful his songs really are, here’s the link to my personal favorite, Strange Charm, a song about quarks (with a disturbingly catchy refrain).
