B-Lo in the House!!!!

This clip is taken from the notorious episode featuring the fresh Buffalo tandem of Chris Arnet, and Ben Ruskas. It combines freestyling and ventriliquism in a fashion like no other.

P.S. like I said before, the next post will feature one of the best musical performance of the first season.

12:48 a.m. March 3 2010

It is I, H-train reporting from Old Greenwich, CT post live show. The show tonight went well for multiple reasons. Reason 1, we all showed up on time. Reason 2, we supported each other and listened. Reason 3, every subject is looked at seriously but with a beautiful lightness at the same time. 10 minutes of meditation at the end helps to free the mind. The energy of friends and support is greatly appreciated for a host and that positive energy was there tonight.

I often treat the show as free therapy. Why bother paying money, when you got PTV? lol. It is a majestic way to get a release and I advise everyone to participate either by tuning in or signing up for your own show.

Stay tuned... The next blog post will feature a video clip from the best musical performance of the first season!

The Co Host Interview Process

Responsibility #1 for being the host of a ptv show is selecting a co host. Oren Vourman was co-host of H-Train Hour during the first semester. Dillon Torchia was selected as co-host during the second semester. A co-host must have charisma, charm, dedication, intelligence, and improvisational skills. After finding this person, a beautiful ambiance occurs. In order to find someone like this a grueling interviewing process must be utilized. The following video exemplifies this process.

A glimpse into the World of H-train

H-train Hour experienced its ups and downs during its first season. Inspiration can originate from a smorgasbord of places. Hence, part of the reason why H-train Hour is labeled as a variety show. The following clip is from December 2009, and was part of the second to last show of the season. It featured Harrison Grinnell as the host, Oren Vourman (G'd out to the max) co-hosting, and Rusty Crackhauser free-styling like no human being has ever rapped before. Pee Wee Herman is in the background living it up on the blue screen and the beats are brought to you courtesy of Anthrofear. Enjoy!

The Mind of a Host (Virtu)

H-train Hour is a live show on Purchase Television (channel 69) hosted by yours truly (Harrison Grinnell). This blog will provide inside access into the mind of a t.v show host. On the show I exert my virtu (prowess). Virtu includes pride, bravery, an amount of ruthlessness and strength. Pride is incorporated into stage presence, bravery is practiced with overcoming fear of being on television, ruthlessness is exercised when creating your own unique mindset and strength used by showing up every week no matter if sickness or alternate date conflicts arise.
