I can't help myself, it made me laugh.

Chuck Berry (R.I.P.) review punk songs

"In a 1980 interview with the zin Jet Lag, Berry shared his thoughts on the punk anthems of the day and spotted his influence in many of them."

The Sex Pistols’ “God Save the Queen”:

“What’s this guy so angry about anyway? Guitar work and progression is like mine. Good backbeat. Can’t understand most of the vocals. If you’re going to be mad at least let the people know what you’re mad about.”

The Clash’s “Complete Control”:

“Sounds like the first one. The rhythm and chording work well together. Did this guy have a sore throat when he sang the vocals?”

The Ramones’ “Sheena is a Punk Rocker”:

“A good little jump number. These guys remind me of myself when I first started, I only knew three chords too.”

The Romantics’ “What I Like About You”:

“Finally something you can dance to. Sounds a lot like the sixties with some of my riffs thrown in for good measure. You say this is new? I’ve heard this stuff plenty of times. I can’t understand the big fuss.”

Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”:

“A funky little number, that’s for sure. I like the bass a lot. Good mixture and a real good flow. The singer sounds like he has a bad case of stage fright.”

Wire’s “I Am the Fly” and Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures:

“So this is the so-called new stuff. It’s nothing I ain’t heard before. It sounds like an old blues jam that BB and Muddy would carry on backstage at the old amphitheatre in Chicago. The instruments may be different but the experiment’s the same.”


So much to do

How recognizable :)


Oh Oh, men are disappearing

- Pollution is destroying men's genitals
- Phthalates, the plasticizer used to make vinyl soft, is affecting masculanity
- 'Fragile males' are more vulnerable than females to pollutants, affecting their development as early as the womb
- Antibacterial Cleaners do more harm than good
- Bisphenol, BPA. This act like a female hormone
- Endocrine disrupting chemicals: testicular cancer, infertility, a deformation of the penis
- The environment vs sperm count

Skulls for in your fireplace

It isn't Halloween yet so I guess people will buy this the whole year through. Fake skulls for your fireplace.

"The log is steel reinforced, plus produced with lave granules plus significant heat ceramic refractory which is employed to check rocket machines."

For only $ 65 per skull


I totally agree

One of my favorite animals, the sloth. But I didn't know they 'talked', perhaps only when they are young. I agree.

Transform a homeless into a hipster ... a little effort that changes a life

With a little effort you can change the life of someone. Jose Antonio was living on the streets of Palma, Spain, for 25 years. The owner of a salon invited him in for a make-over. With scissors, hair dye and a new outfit Jose became another person. Now he's not living on the streets anymore and has a job. Compliments.


Zalando vs Old Spice

Is it just me? The new Zalando commercials with James Franco resemble the old Old Spice commercials. Look and feel. I was watching them on television and I had to think of the Old Spice Man (the 'old' one). I've checked if it was the same advertising agency (W+K) but as far as I could see they did it themselves.

Chef wears the MENU on his face

Creepy portraits by Robbie Postma (chef of the JWT Amsterdam cafetaria) & Robert Harrison.

As they explain themselves:
"With this series we want to take the viewer to the origin of a menu. Not serving a beautiful dish on a plate. But raw, unprocessed ingredients. Served, the closest you can get to a chef’s mind, on his face."

Exactly what I was looking for - Industrial modern ‘Entreplanta Lighting’

I have a weird thing with lights, I only know what I don't want, what I want I can't describe, only 'industrial' ... mm mm. Well I opened this post and for the first time in months I thought: this is it. This is what I want in my living room.

The 'Entreplanta Lighting' are made of folded micro-perforated sheets, by designer Marta Ayala Herrera and architect Cito Ballesta.

Never trust a clown! I rest my case.
