Nerdfighteria

Good Morning Karabean,

I’m sitting on your couch right now. Meta.

Last night we went to a Hank Green concert. It was like this:


We got to the concert and took this adorable but grainey picture.


This picture was taken just after giving WheezyWaiter a high five.


Then, we saw this incredible musician play on an eightstring guitar. It was possibly one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard. Every one of us had our mouths open – entirely dumbfounded by what he could do. His name is Rob Scallion and he’s on YouTube. He was also the drummer for two other bands that night.


Then we wrocked out with Harry and the Potters. I’ve forgotten how incredibly wonderful and fun their shows are and how awesome the community that surrounds them is. I won’t forget that again and I can’t wait to go to another show!


Then Jon Watson showed up and I felt personally attacked.


And then we saw Hank. And it was wonderful. 

We were sitting in the back, of course, like old people and it felt so good seeing this new generation of Nerdfighters signing every word back to Hank. That used to be us. We used to be in the front row – singing back every line. And it was heartwarming to know that although Nerdfighteria has changed – it’s still good. 

And as they say in our hometown,

Don’t forget to be awesome.
