Last night on Nova we watched Dogs And More Dogs, which had some great footage of a wide variety of dogs paired with commentary from their owners. From the transcript: MAN WITH ROTTWEILER: He is so smart, he is so obedient. MAN WITH BULLDOG: He’s a beautiful, beautiful dog. WOMAN WITH BASSET: The best thing[…]
Usually I don’t go for the radio-jock-prank-phone-call-bit but Brother Dave recommended this one and it’s pretty durn funny. Look out though.

We listened to the song “Rockin Harder” on iTunes and were mucho impressed by this guitar and bass fueled rock-a-billy rave up. Last night I saw an amazing noise core band from Los Angeles called Health. They were kicking[…]
