The Red Book Diaries of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight

George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight's Red Book Diaries

George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight’s Red Book Diaries

One of the duties I was tasked with while part of the tenth and final season of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight was shepherding the Red Book messages George would write at the end of almost every episode of the show.

I was also the person who collected those messages and explained them in more detail on the Strombo.com website.

These messages — which could be movies, TV shows, albums, songs, viral videos, books, articles, acknowledgments… anything really — are well worth deeper exploration. As such, I’ve further compiled them here for anyone who might want to dig into them.

Volume One: Against Me!, Ellen Page, Sherlock

Volume Two: Malcolm X, Glenn Gould, philosoraptor

Volume Three: Lou Gehrig, Less Than Zero, James Brown

Volume Four: Lester Bangs, Kiev drone videos, Mark McMorris

Volume Five: Smart dolphins, noble dogs, howling wolves

Volume Six: Bill Nye, Led Zeppelin, tobogganing maps

Volume Seven: Pete Seeger, Harold Ramis, Phillip Seymour Hoffman

Volume Eight: FUBAR, Joe Carter, Black Power Mixtape

Volume Nine: Redd Foxx, Twin Peaks, SCTV

Volume Ten: Trailer Park Boys, Archer, vampires.
