While watching the season finale of Modern Family, “American Skyper”, Phil once again uses technology as a plot device. The robot he used was the Double Telepresence Robot. I thought, hey that would be fun to have but I was surprised to find that it costs a whopping $2,499!
While some bands crowd the stage with redundant guitarists, keyboard players and singers, the Band Royal Blood only needs 2 guys. Through the clever use of effects, singer/bass player simulates the guitar parts on the bass and then with a double amp setup makes it sound like he’s playing both guitar and bass. Amazing!
I love this behind the scenes story of Louis C.K. telling Jimmy Fallon the story of him sinking Fallon’s audition for the Dana Carvey Show. In the long run it didn’t matter since the Dana Carvey Show was cancelled before the end of the season.
I love this group! Snarky Puppy is an amazing band and their arrangements and musical skills are insane. I’ve watched this video so many times! I love how the drummer is playing so passionately that his headphones start to fall off. There’s true joy on their faces when they play and that’s what music is about.
Leonard Nimoy, who was best known for playing Mr. Spock on the original “Star Trek” series passed away last Friday.
From the NY Times: Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
