Geeks Of The Week: Hanson

You really just don't hear enough about the Hanson brothers these days, save for their appearance on VH1 One Hit Wonders list and the occasional award show. In fact, I didn't even realize how much I'd missed ironically singing their "MMMBop" song (or maybe I wasn't being ironic) with my girlfriends until I read their answers to the Switched Questionnaire about technology.

Apparently, the bros are grown up, have a new sound, self-released album and the youngest of the trio Zac Hanson - pictured at left - is almost a geek. I say almost because he doesn't quite match the geekiness of Hilary Duff. Highlights include:

  • What's the longest time you've ever spent playing a video game in one sitting and what game was it?
    I played Final Fantasy X for 10 hours when I first got it.
  • What cell phone do you have right now and what do you love/hate about it?
    I have the BlackBerry 7130c. I hate the scroll wheel. I am left handed but the scroll wheel is on the right side.
  • Name one thing you wish your iPod/cellphone/laptop (any gadget) could do that it doesn't do now?
    Make me coffee, and tone my abs.
  • Blackberry, Sidekick, or Treo?
    BlackBerry. Being able to sent a PIN message to someone and know they will get it in 3 secs is pretty cool.
  • Are you getting an iPhone? If so, why?
    Yes. I have a MacBook Pro, and the iPhone will be the best Phone to sync with all of my programs. Also Apple stuff rocks, so the more of its products I can use, the better.

Me too, Moe. I adored them in Middle School and have grown up following them - there music is actually super decent now and blends with the rest of the mainstream music.. And they continually get cuter..

Anyone down with Final Fantasy is okay in my book. Even if their music sucks!
