I have to constantly remind myself that George is a pro. That's actually a compliment, not a dig on his work. He's the consummate pro. Listen to his work and you'll agree. But I know the guy. He's a drinking buddy. Well, I drink beer, he drinks tea or something sans kick. And any time you know someone and really get all the behind-the-scenes stuff, you think of them less as a pro and more as a friend. Again, not a dig, but a reflection on how my perception changes when I really get to know them.
So when he cranks out something like this quick video for his song The Assumption, I'm blown all the way away, and I have to remind myself that yeah, he's a godsdamned pro and very capable of doing stuff like this. He rocks. He has (as I said on Twitter) more talent in his taint than I have in my entire body. And yet he still takes my calls. How cool is that?
