maybach-exelero-back

Was reading about the Maybach Exelero recently. It’s an $8 million one-off supercar that’s got 700hp and a very stylish, classic look to it. It sort of makes me think that Cruella de Vil should be driving it.

Nike Sportswear Sweden produced this short video about Detroit Pistons Forward Jonas Jerebko and his amazing journey into the NBA despite being from a small town in Sweden where there was virtually no NBA history. This first episode opens with host Adam Tensta flying to Sweden to talk to Jonas’ father about his basketball roots and how that may have influenced Jonas to excel in the sport.

An interesting documentary film no doubt. I’m excited to see the next few episodes as it continues telling the story of this basketball player from Sweden.

I’ve been obsessed with this wonderful song ever since hearing it in the final episode of season 1 of Casual. I just found out from the director of this series that the song was picked up on YouTube from an Australian singer named Emma-Louise.

I’ve gone ahead and converted the audio from the music video into a downloadable MP3 so if you’re like me and LOVE LOVE LOVE this song, then click here to add this raw version to your musical collection.

LYRICS:

Steady on my feet
for I am small
small enough to fit perfectly inside your arms

And did you really try and walk me home
Press me up against my car and kiss me down to my bones

But if we’re not in love
Then why do we pretend
And if time’s not enough
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend for a while

And my mind, it feels you pressed against my skin
sends shivers down inside me
oh boy how did this begin

and underneath the stars … [?]
keeping my body warm, my belly pressed on yours

But if we’re not in love
Then why do we pretend
And if time’s not enough
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend

For a while don’t leave me
For a while don’t leave me
For a while don’t leave me

But if we’re not in love
Then why do we pretend
And if time’s not enough
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend
I’ll be your temporary friend for a while

One of my favorite things about the web series Casual is definitely the music.

Director Jay Diaz, Lauren Marini (girl) and Brian Thomas Smith (boy) talk about how the music plays an integral part of the storyline and helps to move the series along in a very intimate and personal way. On the Casual Facebook page, there are more than a handful of people requesting an official soundtrack list and while none has appeared yet, the video above does go as far as to name a few of the artists and songs featured in the series.

Of utmost important is this lovely song by a YouTube singer named Emma Louise called “Temporary Friend”. I think I’m just going to listen to this for the rest of the night! :)

Following DJ Pauly D’s video which helped promote Justin Bieber’s new film Never Say Never is this new video that features The Situation talking about how to get it on in a theater with Justin’s mostly pre-teen fanbase. Well, that’s sort of awkward.

This is very exciting news! Sweden’s Looptroop Rockers, which I first discovered in 2008, are back with a new album coming out this year called Professional Dreamers. It’s been 3 years since I’ve heard anything from these guys so I’m stoked to get back into their musical groove.
