Geeks Rule!

On one of Barry's cover albums, there was a short "this is how it's done" included. When my friend and I watched that video of him talking about his shoe planter we fell on the floor laughing. And his in-depth discussion of how he goes about finalizing the songs on his computer in his studio was priceless. We looked at each other and said, "Geek!" Mind you we both married geeks. So when we said it, it was in fond adoration. Truth be told, I'm a geek at heart as well.

Yesterday, in an online article, Barry himself admitted it:

So you were the original Williamsburg hipster.
A: I wasn't really a hipster. I was a geek.

Q: Hey, geeks rule the world now, right?
A: You know, you're right. That was me. Steve Jobs? Bill Gates? See how they look? That's exactly how I looked. Worse! My hair was slicked down with a part. But that was before I discovered the blow-dryer. Now I'm fabulous.

You really are FABULOUS Barry. Still a geek, but fabulous!

Geeks Rule!

Just have to love his sense of humor. I'd much rather be known as a geek, than to be seen as what goes for cool these days.

And it's not just the hairdryer that made him fabulous. It's everything the man does and stands for.

Yes Barry, you are still fabulous.

you begin again.... said...

I LOVED that DVD bonus!!!
I could listen to Barry talk about how he makes his box of chips do what he wants for HOURS. I may not be able to make music myself, but that I do get.

YBA, Perhaps you are a "geek" as well???

Bonnie, you're right, it's more than the hairdryer that makes him "fabulous". It's the BAMMS..GOTCHA!
