Hard ‘n Phirm Video: TRACE ELEMENTS

14 09 2009

This is the second video in our Country Public Broadcasting System series. A few years ago, Brian Posehn called me and challenged HnP to make fun
of a Country singer named Trace Adkins. “It’s not possible, because
he’s such a redneck,” he said. Our solution was to make Adkins’
style of music about science, a topic rarely covered in the Country

Special thanks to Neil Mahoney, who directed the live action part of
the video, Josh Fadem who was kind enough to appear in it, and our old friends Stonehoney for spending the day recording  with us.
If you like it, by all means pass it along—be warned though, there is foul language afoot so keep it out of reach of the little ones.

Science, Y’all!!!


HnP on “Attack of the Show” Wednesday!

1 04 2008

Weeeeell, I’ve been co-hosting Attack all week while Kevin and Olivia are basking in the warm Jamaican sun, but well protected from high SPF sun-block and a thick cloud of pot smoke. The producers were kind enough to ask us to perform (I swear I didn’t ask) live on the show and so it shall be. On Wednesday at 4pm West Coast, 7pm East Coast we will be smearing your analog airwaves with “Trace Elements,” our first country/science song. Please like it. That is all.

CPBS -- Science Y'all!

Episode One of our new SuperDeluxe series “CPBS” (or, the Country Public Broadcasting System) is up—and not a decade too late!

This episode—The Death of the King—features the animation of Divya Srinivasan, the musical accompaniment of country music’s finest, Stonehoney, the always insane (in the good way) Eddie Pepitone, a crowd of kids, and of course, the ‘E’ in ‘decEased’: Elvis Presley.

More thanks must be showered upon Jerry Payne, Tom Davenport, Joel Miller and dzarecta for some excellent decomposition footage, because what’s death without decomposition?

Dr. Phil: Good

29 05 2007

I’m going to catch a lot of grief for this, but I actually have a little bit of respect for Dr. Phil after seeing the new opening to his show.

Watch it here, in its entirety (open in I.E. if no sound)

HnP on NPR pt. Twoooooooo

24 05 2007

Welcome to the second and final installment of our in-studio performance series on NPR. You can do anything, because this song says so. I have nothing else important to write here, so, go green, viral video, bring our boys home, boobs.

HnP on NPR pt. 1

23 05 2007

Last month in New York (April 14th to be exact) we got to be on National Public Radio—radio by the people, for the people (except the nimrods). The host, Faith Salie and I have been friends for a long time so that made the experience less nerve wracking than had we not known her, as we’re these two clowns (an almost accurate description) marching into NPR to do our “musical comedy skits.” Ultimately, the show was a blast and we felt 18% artier than we had prior to the engagement—almost like real musicians…

I’ve broken up the show into two parts, totaling around ten minutes. I’ll post the other one tomorrow. First is a delightfully reverb-y performance of “American Dinosaurs.”

For those who like to Guac...
Our good friends Mike Blieden and Matt Price made a fantastic series of shorts about a manic, self-obsessed tub of guacamole called, “Guacamole.” The voice cast includes Blieden and Price themselves, as well as Paul F. Tompkins, Matt Besser, Andy Daly and us, just to name drop a bunch. Incidentally, we also wrote the ten second theme song for the show:

Please enjoy the rest of “Guacamole” here.
