My company Christmas Card (Rated R)

This is the Christmas card for my clietnts. It is based on the fact that the Swedish King has been exposed as a playboy type of dude, partying with strippers and girls from the "lower classes", similar to Tiger Woods, to put it in an international context:

Viber - Free calls app for Iphone. The death of mobile carriers?

Tried this app last night. Worked amazingly well. Free calls to others who have the app on Iphones. Fantastic. The mobile carriers like TNT in USA, and Orange and the others in Europe must be in tears.
Is there a catch? Not that I know of now, but my guess, since there are no free lunches, is that there will be ads and spam-calls coming in the future. Then Viber will launch an ad free premium app for a small fee. 

Here's a demo clip:

The Trip gives me Restless Legs

Okay, I love Steve Coogan, he is a very funny comedian, and some people with great taste are going bonkers over his latest BBC series "The Trip". I thought episode 1 was funny, but ep. 2 gavea me an itching in my legs, and I know that is a sign of me getting bored. It is basically "Sideways", in England, with a little bit different setup. They eat, drink wine, and talk. And do imitations, which are usually spot on.  But in episode 2, they just sit by a restaurant table the full show. I  had decided not to watch episode 3 after my restless legs incident, but maybe ep. 3 will be just as fun as ep. 1? They basically just need to move around a bit I guess? :)

Fantastic short film with Alva & Lasek

Wow, epic stuff on pool skating. Love it!

Joaquin's most intetesting movie so far

Joaquin Phoenix has done a bunch of great movies, perhaps the Johnny Cash one being the best. But his mockumentary "I'm still here", in which he abandons his movie career, and starts behaving and looking like a homeless person, pursuing a rap career, Is definitely his most interesting project to date. A must for anyone interested in the workings of media, and where edgy movie making today is at.

Get Yoself Kinected

Tried Microsoft XBOX 360 Kinect today, while waiting for some Iphone 4 issues. Tried bowling, boxing and table tennis. It worked surprisingly well. It was quite tight, the way the movements of ones arms were replicated on screen.

I might pass untill Kinect 2 comes out maybe summer 2011, which will be probably totally lag-free, and in 3D, but the Kinect of today worked good enough, definitely, for some family fun. The dancing's supposed to be the best program, and I didn't get to try that.

The Social Net-Nerd

Watched The Social Network here on vacation in Spain. Good movie with very strong dialogue, script by Alan Sorkin. Interesting to see how Zuckerberg, who is portrayed as a super-nerd, basically smkokes all his friends and everyone who wants to team up with him initially. Makes one wonder why all the betrayals, a guess is that he, from being a bit nerdy, was paying back on all jocky successful types, who might have been, maybe disrespectful to him growing up. But hey, it's a movie, I have no clues on Zuckerberg's real background. Impressive career, to say the least.

Double-O-Machete Mexploitation

Just watched Bobby Rodriguez latest flick here from Spain on my Ipad. Seems suitable to watch a Hispanic adventure such as Machete from here. Anyhow, if you dig Rodriguez, you won't be disappointed. This Danny Trejo vehicle is as bad, gory and mexploitaitional as a meal at Taco Bell. What Rodriguez is doing is building a Mexican take on James Bond, and he does it on the lighter side. Great co-stars for Danny Trejo, here, such as Robert DeNiro, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan and Steven Segal, make this one a juicy Burrito... Sorry!

Yes He Kanye

Kanye is not your ordinary, pimps'n'hoes, down on the corner hip hop guy. Kanye is a musical genius. Kanye is pretentious. Kanye is probably bipolar. To me, Kanye hit a career low a few years ago, became a pop artist. He's back to form again, probably better than ever. Here is a 35 minute mini movie he's directed himself around his upcoming album. It's epic hip hop stuff. Very pretentious, very cool, strong music. Super duper. Watch the whole thing:

Kenny, I'm your father

Eastbound & Down ep 4 s2 delivers as always. Kenny helps his Mexican girlfriend on her singing carreer, by taking her to the team owner's studio. Well you can imagine things fly out the window soon enough. Stevie finds his first girlfriend, but has to dump her, because Kenny gets dumped by his, who hooks up with the millionaire team owner/producer. Of course, nwo Kenny must get really high and drunk, and make a total ass of himself in front of the team. Well anyway, in the end he meets his "pops", who turns out to be... Don Johnson. Great show, very different from Mad Men, but just as captivating. They smoke and drink about as much on both shows, actually.

Mad Men Season Finale

Well, all in all my love for Mad Men haven't faded after season four. It's still captivating drama, with top notch acting, and an amazing attention to detail in creating the '60's atmosphere. The ending where Don marries felt maybe a little desperate, like, we have to have a dramatic ending of the season, to keep them coming back for more in season 5. Anyhow, great show, which beats any drama movie.

Classic Kanoa Surf skateboard helmets




For old school skaters, or anybody who have seen the pictures from the big skateboarding wave of the '70's, the helmet choice of anybody cool, was the Flyaway® helmet from Kanoa® Surf. They are back now, hand made by Mr. Von Wolf in his work shop near Dog Town. You can have one custom painted any way you want. Prices vary depending on complexity of graphics. From $199.

Eastbound Southbound

Just seen episode 3 of season 2. Very funny as always. Kenny and Steve are adjusting to their "hispanic adventure", and Kenny is finally getting some baseball recognition as "White Flame", a name Stevie made up, which Kenny hates. Kenny is also deeply in love. Fun to see the evil Indian midget from ep 1 is back. Strong script with the usual white trashy outrageous dialogue.

The Office US - Sweeney Todd!

Andy Bernard in an amateur theatre group doing Sweeney Todd. Brilliant episode. Seems as if they have two crews writing scripts. Ep 01 was super fun, and also had musical parts in it. ep 02 was cruder and meaner, still fun, but cheaper laughs. Ep 03, once more has musical bits, and is just brilliant fun. Well written, and the usual squirmish embarrassment. Top notch TV comedy! Should I skip ep 04?

The Office season 7: Last dance with Michael

Have watched two eps of The Office US, and especially ep 1 was fantastic, and as strong as ever. As usual, the feel of the workplace is totally miserable, the furniture and office decoration is really dull. Working at a place like Dunder Mifflin in Scranton would be horriffic in real life. However, since this show is jam-packed with extremely vapid, mean, vain, stupid, clever, obnoxious and fun characters, every day at work there goes totally out of control. Great show, glad they are back, and that they still are very funny after seven seasons.

You know I'm Mad, I'm Mad, really really Mad, Men

Mad Men season 4 is up to episode 9 as far as I know, and is maintaining it's amazingly high qualty level. The detailwork is top notch, the acting superb, everybody's still boozing it up and smoking fags like there was no tomorrow. If anything is new, this season contains more drinking and loose living than previously. Love this show, TV never was better than Mad Men, I guess.

TV show Outsourced is More In than Out

Just watched s01e01 of new TV show Outsourced. Very funny, smart, and, sweet show. About a young guy who is a manager of a callcenter in Kansas City, whose entire company gets outsourced, and he has to move to India to manage his new local staff. This show is smart, witty and feels modern, and it does NOT have a laugh track, like SMDS, which is so 80's.

Shit my dad says - fun as tweets, boring as sitcom

Usually I try not to diss stuff here on this blog, but hey, to keep up with pop culture, I gotta watch all sorts of stuff. Anyway, a fun Twitter account I was following was one called "Shit my dad says", which was from this kid, writing down fun stuff his obnoxious old dad said. Now, this blog was a huge success, and I remebered it having a massive number of followers. So I was amazed to see the guy behind the account on TV when I was in LA this summer. He already had a book out, and a sitcom was in the making. Anyway, the sitcom is out, starring William Shatner as the shitsayng dad. Turns out it's one of them oldfashioned sitcoms with a laugh track. Feels kinda like watching a white foulmouthed version of Cosby. It blows, quite frankly. Sad.

Will will always be funny

Just watched Will Ferrell's new cop buddy movie spoof "The Other Guys " and Will will deliver. He's been funny for a long time now, Will Ferrell, and thank god he doesn't do what all other successful comedians do after about ten years of comedy success; start thinking about Oscar's and do serious films.
Anyway, this movie hasn't premiered over here yet, so I just want to give it my recommendations for any Ferrell fans out there, that this one is a solid flick, where Ferrell delivers his usual deadpan mix of weirdness and stupidity, while still being clever and always dropping an unexpected quote.

The Office starts out season 7 amazingly strong. The weird staff of paper company Dunder Mifflin from Scranton are all back. Michael starts out by hiring his loser teen nephew, to reconnect with his half sister. The kid is a douche, and... Well see for yourself. Very funny episode!

Boaring walk empire

This series sounded so promising. Directed by Coppola, starring indie fave Steve Buscemi, and with a huge budget. I watched half the pilot, but after I was expecting to see Bugsy Malone appear with a cream gun, I had to turn the darn thing off. I just could not find interest in any of the characters.
Watch the opening sequence though. Beautiful work. the show could just have been that, I would have loved it!

Kenny Powers es retorno!

Eastbound & Down season 2 is out there and I just watched the first ep. Kenny is hiding out in Mexico till things cool off back home, under the alias Steve. His GMC Denali XL has been deprived of its tires, so he mopeds around town, hustling in the cock fighting business. The HBO success is as fun as last season, and Danny Mc Bride is a genious both writing and playing Kenny in the show.
This show is one of the best shows I have ever seen, so lets just hope Danny can keep rolling and stay so bad ass as he is as Kenny.
