#432 New Sizzer Work

This winter we at Sizzer Amsterdam worked really hard on a new campaign for a Diesel fragrance called the Fuel For Life Denim Collection.
We reworked a old disco classic by Patrick Hernadez' called Born To Be Alive and the commercial includes two people that are so incredibly hot, this commercial should be considered extremely NSFW.

#430 Perfect Lentement (according to @luckyfonziii, Lucky Fonz III)

Dutch singer songwriter Lucky Fonz III is celebrating the volatile character of spring. Music wise that is. Not the jumpy and the light side of spring but the more quiet desolate side of the season. Complete liner notes right here.

#429 Dr. Dre When He Was A Toddler

Now supposedly, the film above is taken from an old TV show and the little toddler you're seeing is a young André Romell Young aka Dr. Dre. Whether this is true or not, I cannot say for a full 100%, however the kid does look like him and he's already being a true mack.

#428 Charlie Seen x Snoop Dogg: Winning

Snoop and Sheen have recorded a record. One that you can actually buy here... it's called "Winning!" and it's kinda stupid, but interesting nonetheless.

#427 Say OE-AA-Ed-De-Goeij!!

Yesterday former keeper of the Dutch national team, Feyenoord and Arsenal, Ed de Goey, did a TV-interview in a program called Holland Sport. Nothing remotely interesting was said, if anything the interview was horrible and insulting to the legendary goalkeeper. It did remind me of a different interview about his record collection from some years ago. Ed amongst other things speaks about Gabber, "something some of the dark skinned players like" and the music they should play when Holland becomes world champion.

#426 Perfect Röyksopp

Perfect Röyksopp. Well Röyksopp. Personally I'm not a fan and that's putting it mildly. My friend Arnaud once described their music very well as "one endless ringtone" and I think I have to agree with that description.
However, just because I don't like it, doesn't mean I can force other people have to hate it as well (but I can try!). Victor Romijn created a 2 hour (that's a really long ringtone) summary of Röyksopp highlights you can listen to by dowloading here and spotifying here.

#425 Battles - Ice Cream

Battles have a new video / single. It features a certain Matias Aguayo and it's taken from their forthcoming album called Gloss Drop and I for one love it!

#424 United Breaks Guitars

I never heard of this "United Breaks Guitars" song till last Saturday when my buddy Niels Alzen informed me about it. What we have here is a classic example of how internet-power-to-the-people can not only help build a brand, but can also help destroy it.

The story... Country singer Dave Carroll goes on tour in the U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!, flies a United Airlines flight between two places and sees how his $3500 710 Taylor is being thrown around like a bag of potatoes. The guitar ends up broken and when United airlines refuses to pay up, Dave has his revenge the only way he knows how, by writing a youtube sensation called "United Breaks Guitars" that's currently been played over 10.000.000 (10 million) times.

#420 Bandmaps and Infographics

The website seattlebandmap.com states: "The Seattle Band Map is a project that showcases the northwest's vibrant music scene by documenting the thousands of bands who have performed throughout the decades; it also explores how these bands are interconnected through personal relationships and collaborations." Pretty cool, but maybe a little redundant since we already have bandtoband.com, nonetheless, either website is a great place to ruin parts of your day.
