My weekend featured absolutely nothing of note. I picked up the new NCAA Football 08 game which is geektacular. But that wasn't my highlight of the weekend....no the highlight was discovering that Coke has brought back Vanilla Coke which was taken off the market 2 years ago. Of course, its no longer "Vanilla Coke" its "Coke Vanilla." See, thats why it didn't sell well last time. They had the word sequence wrong.

Rumors are circulating that Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck are reforming the Yardbirds. Thats not the big news....the big news is that anyone gives a rats ass.

If you still haven't watched an episode of HBO's Flight of the Conchords this week is a good time to start. When Bret begins to doubt his "look" he starts receving visits in his sleep from David Bowie (Bowie not played by Bowie by the way). Very funny stuff. Great show. Sure to be canned by HBO, the people who brought you Lucky Louie.
Organizers of Rocklahoma have announced that the hair band show did so well, that Rocklahoma 2008 is a go for next year. 300 bucks gets you VIP seating for all 3 days of the anti-Live Earth (after all, all that aqua net destroyed the ozone).
Which record did more to kill off the hair bands....Guns and Roses Appetite for Destruction or Niravana's Nevermind? Discuss.
More crap as it happens....new vids posted below...
