Single Player's Not As Fun In the Game of Life

Sooner or later, Dear Readers, someone from the States is going to impress me with their independent, quirky, nerd loving style. That time is not now. I turn once again to The Great White North in order to find amusement as I have often done in the past. This time it is a pair of Canadian Hosers the likes of which haven't been seen since Bob and Doug. A couple of nerds who sing songs about iPhone obsessions, girls that leave because guys play too many video games, and other assorted Nerd Friendly topics. I'm talking, of course, about the comedy duo Nerds With Guitars.

So, you're probably asking yourself, "How does Mr. Attack Resistance keep meeting all of these Canadians, despite living in the American MidEastWest?" The short answer is that I don't. I first discovered Fearless Fred while on a business trip in Canada, but didn't write about him until I got back down south (same with Tim Hortons. Yummy, delicious Tim Hortons. How I love you so...). From there I think I stumbled on Miss Late July's fantastic blog or, more probably, quite by accident started following her on Twitter. After making a snarky comment or two in her timeline and becoming her first fanboy, these guys responded in kind and I've been fans of their music and their humo(u)r ever since. So... that's that. Want a little taste of the goodness? See the video below.

Also, if any of you are in the GTA, Nerds With Guitars will be playing tonight at Rancho Relaxo. If you go see them, there will be cake.
