I didn’t think I could do it again, but I’ve made another ‘funny’ video using my cartoon character Swiss Cheese. The video describes how to make a grilled cheese sandwich the lazy way. Yes, it is ironic a cheese is telling people how to make a cheese sandwich. Enjoy!
I know I shouldn’t like TV commercials. I also know and most studies show that people don’t remember the product being advertised especially if it is a funny commercial, but here are a couple of ads I find funny. One from Ace Hardware and the other from AT&T. I have no real view on the products but I liked the ads.
I love TV show themes and was really sad when the industry started cutting back on themes in order to squeeze in more commercials. The main theme to the show “The Equalizer” (1985–1989) is probably one of the best. It was composed by Stewart Copeland, the drummer from The Police. This percussion heavy theme captures the electronic vibe of the 1980′s and is part New Wave and part house music. Here is an album version of the tune.
When I think of Christmas I think of the music of the holiday. From the classics to the newer hits, I find the music sets me in the right mood. Here is a playlist of some of my favorite Christmas tunes. Enjoy!
Whoa! Blast from the past. While looking for a different song I stumbled across Ocean Blue again. I knew I had one of their CDs from back in the day and sure enough in my Box-O-CDs I found their debut album from 1989. The first track “Between Something And Nothing” is why I bought it. It sounded like Echo and the Bunnymen and Cocteau Twins and I just found out Ocean Blue wasn’t from the UK they were from Hershey, PA
I heard this song the other day for the first time and it blew me away. In our current autotune, over processed music it is great to hear a song performed live and it is just as great as the recorded version. In fact the entire album “Theatre Is Evil” is excellent.
This Little Caesars Pizza commercial cracks me up every time it’s on TV.
“Put Your Shirt Back On!” LOL!
*Note* For some reason the recommended videos after this one plays include several videos of horses mating….
One of the best things to happen to me in college – besides beer – was rooming with a music student my freshman year in the dorms. Mike turned me on to many bands and singers I never knew existed in my AM radio bubble while growing up. He showed me his CD of Flim & the BB’s album “Tricycle”. This was the mid 80′s and CD’s were the new thing and I was amazed. Mike had a kicking stereo system so the album sounded so good it spoiled me since then. Even after becoming a long time fan of Flim & the BB’s it wasn’t until the other day I realized I had been calling them Film & the BB’s finally solving the problem I had finding their music online.
