2009: Year of Astronomy -- FAR video

If you were to blend Tom Lehrer, Frank Zappa, and "Weird Al" Yankovich--musically(!)--you might just get George Hrab. Hrab is a rockstar among skeptical music aficionados. His "Brainsbodyboth" can be found on nearly any iPod held in a hand whose wrist bears a blue "Critical Thinker" band.

His latest amusement is "FAR," 365 Days of Astronomy's theme song for The International Year of Astronomy. Enjoy:

The M*A*S*H reference is priceless! And true sci-fi geeks will pick up the subtle 2010: The Year We Make Contact reference.

It was Hrab who regaled those of us on The Amaz!ng Adventure 3 with his ballad of the elements. Each element got its own verse. He's an incredible talent and a great guy.
