Wolfmother makes me want to drive a muscle car on a desert road in snakeskin boots

If you are a sucker for classic '70's heavy metal guitar gods like Zeppelin and Sabbath, you have not missed super talented yong Aussie band Wolfmother. The man behind it is sickly brilliant guitarist and singer Adrian Stockdale, who has replaced the entire band for the new, second album "Cosmic Egg". The guy sings on par with Jack White, and plays guitar like he could replace Jimmy Page any day. Insanely gifted! If you've missed it, the first album is as brilliant as the new one.

Grunge app for Iphone

Hey, if Alice In Chains still wanna sell some albums somehow, but when CD's are dead, how do they do it? Well, of course, Iphones are hot, so they make an Iphone app, with special versions of the songs, ready to be bought and installed from Itunes. When grunge rockers become middle aged, they stop doing heavy drugs, and start selling apps instead. Way healthier, however, is the music any good? I don't know, there are so many apps out there...

Californication Season 3 - Rise of the Cougar

Californication is back with the apparently irresistable David Duchovny as Hank Moody in the lead. The women just can't stay away from him and are trying to sack him at any time, any place and at any cost. In season 3, Hank gets a job as a University teacher. Of course, the female coeds, teachers and the dean's wife are all over him. His manager Runkle gets a new job where Kathleen Turner is his boss, and man, is she dirty, foulmouthed and sexually abusive, and Runkle gets to be her toy-boy. The show is amusing as always! In this episode, Runkle has a meeting with Kathleen's character and Rick Springfield, as himself.

Bored To Death? - Not Me!

New hipsterish series Bored To Death is great. Great actors, cool script, that Cackafannakis guy is in it, and he plays a weird sensitive cartoonist. The series is styled like an old Mike Hammer private eye kinda show. Ted Danson is in it, and he's sensational! Thank you lordy for HBO!

The Office US Season 6 - The Marriage

At first I totally dismissed the US version of the UK Hit sitcom mockumentary The Office. I love Steven Carrell, but just could not believe it would be more than an bleak adaptation of the original. Great reviews kept coming, and the seasons piled on. So about half a year ago, I started watching, from the beginning. The first season and a half was a bit on the crude side, I thought, but mid season 2, the scripts got sharper.

Or did the characters creep up on me? I've watched so many episodes now, I feel like I work there. Anyhow, the series is great fun, and Steve Carrell is the wackiest, stupidest boss who ever lived. And funniest. And saddest.

The last episode I have watched is about the marriage between Jim and Pam at Niagara Falls, with the whole Office staff attending. Of course, disaster strikes. Very very funny episode. This video I found might not seem so much fun at a glance, but if you are familiar with the series, you'll catch the irony:

Guns'N'Roses for real babies

Baby - You're gonna die...hope not, these are lullaby versions of some G'N'R classics. As always, anything GNR is highly amusing, so go to the page, and have a listen:

3D chaos graphics

Workin' on an illustration for a magazine, this is for the background:

Curb Season 7, episode 4: Hide, Hide!

Episode four of Curb Your Enthusiasm is an orgy of Larry confrontations. The most embarrassing episode ever, probably. And Larry had been in a positive streak the previous episodes, with the Seinfeld Reunion and getting beck with Cheryl and all. Now it's just downhill. And it's an avalanche!

Pretty darn spankin' new artwork

Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, and NASA just bombed the moon. Now down to some important stuff: It happens now and then one comes across stuff that looks completely original. This is some of that, at least to me:

Supersize Me!

Great sculpture by Ron English from Copro Nason Gallery in LA. It can be yours for 3500 buckaroos. And a large fries with that?

Modern Family - MOR Mockumentary

There is an old genre in rock, called Middle Of the Road (MOR). This genre could also be applied on TV series MOR, for being a bit too careful to really stand out. Compare MF to any HBO series, and the problem is probably too many sponsors are having a say on the end product. Even though MF touches on controversial subjects lika gay adoption, everything comes out a bit bland. Maybe MF is too much like its audience, suburban families in middle class neighborhoods: Cute and nice, but maybe a bit too boring for being in a mockumentary.

Parks & Recreation Season 2 parked in top slot.

P&R season 2 starts out really strong. Very solid scriptwriters on this show. Amy Poehler delivers in her patented over-the-top sweetheart-but-kinda-sad screw up of a public servant. You can actually see full episodes on Youtube, I have downloaded them myself, but watching them this way should work:


This could be real, as well as it could be a new sitcom by Douglas Coupland. Microsoft wants us to host Tupperware-like release parties for Windows 7...

Movie from The Mighty Boosh-gang

This is pretty twisted, but if you are familiar with, and a fan of, the Boosh gang's take on humour, you will probably enjoy their feature The Bunny And The Bull (rumoured to be good):
