Greg Tamblyn by Greg Tamblyn
Greg Tamblyn's concert, Saving the World From Whiny Victim Love Songs, was a hilarious evening of humor, elegantly poetic lyrics, great music, and captivating stories.
My friend Jane and I attended the concert at The Heritage Center in Virginia
Beach, VA, on Nov. 21. The audience loved his irreverent sense of humor,
especially the preview of his title song from his live comedy CD, Analog
Brain In A Digital World, which is being released today. http://gregtamblyn.com/analogbraincd.html

Tamblyn also performed favorites from previous albums including Clyde, My Inner Guide, and I'd Like to Be the Man My Dog Thinks I Am. His humorous look at relationships, Common Side Effects Include, recently won the Humor category top honors in the Just Plain Folks Music Awards. Over 140,000 songs were submitted.
Upcoming performances are scheduled in St. Louis, New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama, and a half dozen venues in Florida in early 2010.
Author Sam Keen said, "It (Analog Brain In A Digital World) honest to god made me laugh out loud while driving on the freeway at dangerous speeds. Your songs are hazardous to pomp, ceremony and all manner of jargon and psychocrap. I love 'em."
Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup book fame says, "I love the messages you're spreading through your music. I'm sure you are Chicken Soup for a lot of Souls out there in the world!"
Greg notes, "The letters after my name are N.C.W. (No Credentials Whatsoever) I like to joke that my primary learning came from the school of life, and I almost flunked out. Twice.
If you've had a few pit stops at the AFGO Station (Another Friendly Growth Opportunity), you probably realize a sense of humor is vital. You need to feel comically as well as cosmically connected."
