Who's Liam Gerner?

It's funny how MySpace has brought me more good music these days then what friends bring in. Ryan Bingham, Shurman and Patty Griffin to name a few. It's also funny that most of that music the musicians try to reach me by sending a friend request. And sometimes they even write a message to go along with it. A few days ago I got one from Liam Gerner he'll be supporting Ryan Bingham on his European mini tour.

Spotted by Peter Gabriel while playing for miners and tourists in is native land Australia, he was asked to perform at WOMAD, first in Australia, then in the UK. Which gave him the chance to headline several shows in London England.

Now to his music. It wouldn't surprise me if people compare his voice to that of John Mayer. But the fun thing is that he changes his phrasing in per song. While the song Clear Mind reminds you John Mayer the song Metal Horses reminds me of Ben Harper. But this is not to say he mimics artists, he sounds honest, has a strong voice and is quiet a good guitarist. I don't have his record so I really can't go into detail but all I've heard so far sounds very promising.

So don't hesitate to visit his MySpace page and have a listen also check out the tour dates, maybe you could go and see a show. I'm gonna see him on January 16th because he'll be opening for Ryan Bingham.

The Craplist

The Crap list is a new thing I came up with, instead off giving stars to things you think are good. You give brown stars to things that suck. Meaning that getting a ***** brownstar rating is the ultimate crapfest. No stars means it gets my recommendations. This time I would like to start with three movies I've just seen.

The Brave One ***
Hmmm, Jodie Foster. It seems that she has dibs on all female victim roles, and once again. After The Accused, Panic Room and what not I find it boring to watch. But besides that it's just a nice movie, one that gets you trough time. Here's the plot outline: A woman struggles to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a mission for revenge.

The Bucketlist
It's been a long time since I've seen a mature movie. Just a movie for grown ups. With good acting, and a basic story.

Plot Outline: Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.

Once again there's proof that good actors can make or break a movie. While I am Legend lacked any good acting this movies thrives on it. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman steal the show. This might even be a guyflick! Just for dudes no chicks. This movie doesn't get any brownstars because good, it's one to watch and not wipe your but with.

I am Legend ****
I'm not a legend nor do I plan to be. But it seems that Will Smith has the urge to only play in movies with what could be an epic role. But like I said could be 'epic role'. While I've been suffering form Will Smith fatigue ever since 'Wild Wild West' his characters are always shallow or have this HBO-movie family drama feel over them. I've always had the feeling that he's trying to be the new Bill Cosby. Not so much trying to be funny, but like trying to be like the Huxtables. But back to I am Legend!

The plot outline: Years after a plague kills most of humanity and transforms the rest into monsters, the sole survivor in New York City struggles valiantly to find a cure.

But an Hollywood movie wouldn't be a movie unless Robert Neville (Will Smith) also lost his wife and daughter. Which is a reason to give us a crapload of flashback with no other purpose then to show he had a wife and a kid and he's sad about having lost them (HBO Familydrama). But, he has something that reminds him about them and that's the German Sheppard called Sam (Samantha). She, off course, is his companion. That itself is good *** brownstars. Will's acting hasn't really been good in this movie, it's shallow, far from being convincing as an survivor and it seems that the director wanted a Tom Hanks Cast Away kind of feel to the movie. Now if that's what you like the go see it. I don't recommend it, but go see it..

Derek Trucks Interview at Britt Festival

Keep Jesus Off My Penis

Keep your Jesus off my penis
Keep your bible off my balls
Keep your prayers out of my ears
And your crosses off my walls
You can keep the virgin mother
And the resurrection too
Keep your Jesus off my penis
I’ll keep my penis offa you

That's just brilliant!

Merry X-mas and a freakishly funkyfied new year!

It's the time of the year most of us reflect on our life, what's good or bad. What you would like to change and sit down with friends and family to eat a meal. Yes, It's almost X-mas. And after that we have the end of the year, where most of us decide to quit smoking and other good things in life. Some, in my opinion, attention seekers decide not to eat meat anymore. As long as they are all in good fun I'm down with it.

But now, here it comes. To all freaks, weirdo's, people who just don't fit in any typical category. The lowdowns, the original thinkers and the illegal people amongst us. I would like to say, sing and act out, I wish y'all a unique and honest X-mas. And a freakishly funkyfied new year.

Sit on my face

A nice song to start the weekend with.

Beyond Disruption

"Evolved individuals know that people who are not intuitive can be dangerous to work with, since they are guided solely by the present appearance of things that are, in reality, changing. Evolved individuals seek out others who have intuition and vision - a form of intelligence that comes from cultivating their instinct, observing the direction of change, and apprehending changing ideas"

Holy crap! What a mature voice this girl has. I mean I dislike the song she's singing. But for once this song is sung instead of yelled like Whitney Houston does. B.T.W. I think that Whitney Houston should only sing traditional songs, no poppy tunes!

So I've met Derek Trucks

Last Thursday I've flew over to go to London do see Derek Trucks and meet up with Andy and Jeff and his wife whom I know from the forum. It was great fun meeting the guys and before the gig I ran into the bass player Todd Smallie. Kofi (the keyboard player) threw me his setlist and to top that I've met Derek Trucks! I was drunk like hell and we talked a bit, so he must have thought I was annoying as hell. But still I've shook the man's hand and thanked him for the music he and his crew has made. And I also met the percussionist Count M’Butu. Want to see some pics? Not many though, just hit this link.

Women, you can't live with them ...

"Women, you can't live with them ... ... and yet they are everywhere" are the famous and wise words of Harry S. Solomon. Harry is a fictional character in the sitcom called 3rd Rock From The Sun. I believe it's in the first, second or third episode that he makes this remark, because he, as an alien, doesn't understand women. That itself isn't that weird, I mean, I don't plan on ever understanding women. Or spending to many hours trying to understand their train of thought, it's one of those things that keep life fun. That way things happen that are unexpected and keeps things fresh. Females might call it nonchalance or uninterested, I call it "if you want me to understand you, then be more obvious". In all fairness, it's not to be stubborn, it's just that I don't understand females. That brings me to where I would like to talk about.

So far I've experienced it too many times, so it can't be an incident. So here it goes :) I must say it's because of it's repetitive character that I started to get curious. But, there could be a very big chance (as I never understand women) that I just don't understand. Why do the women that I have had intimate relationships with and we didn't work out. Have the tendency to nourish me? Maybe nourish is the wrong word, so correct me if I'm wrong. I don't mean just that they would like to be friends, I really mean nourish.

Let me explain, a few weeks back I had a short text exchange with such a lady. In the last text she said 'You are beautiful human being with a fantastic personality'(Je bent een mooi mens met een fantastische persoonlijkheid). It's not that I put much value to that personally, but how many people would you describe like that? Why, would you say that, what's the use? So, after a week I text back with the same question I ask you. So far she hasn't reacted, why should she right? Well It's not like there is anything left between us so I assumed that she react.

But so far I've always experienced that. So why do women do that? Nourish their old love I mean.

Copyright is censorship

We all learn from each other, and everything surrounding us we use, thus it's an influence. If I was to give credit to everything I say or do, to where it originated from. I wouldn't be able to say or do anything. That being said I would like to repeat the heading 'Copyright is censorship'. I feel that I, in actuality, don't own a thing. Yes it's in my house or whatever but what makes it mine? By 'human' law it's mine but in a philosophical sense it's just there. It doesn't have a conscious sense of what it is or where it's from and it doesn't have the ability to decide where to go. Those 'values' are given by us human to objects.

Why is copyright censorship? Imagine that somebody invented copyright while the cavemen ruled the world? What if Napoleon decided to claim copyrights over war? I feel that we, as humans, should have the chance to use each others knowledge more without the danger of being sued for copyright violations/infringements. Look at YouTube, a playground for video enthusiast, rip, mix and upload. In my eyes those are clips are honest expressions by the diverse internet community. Why do record labels want clips to be taken down? It's the best kind of advertising they can have. Excuse me for my rant but that's how I feel.

The real reason for this article is a article on another blog that showed how much the writers and directors use movies and tv-series as their influence. Click on this link for the comparisons.

I wish I knew - The Derek Trucks Band

In about two and a half weeks I'll be flying over to London to see The Derek Trucks band and meet up with some people. One of the songs they play is a song composed Billy Taylor and later sang by Nina Simone. While I normally am not so focused on the lyrics these lyrics make you think about life.

I mean It's a beautiful protest song and not an angry one for the civil rights movement in 1950 of the U.S.A. But it's also something that we could all could find meaning in.

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all the chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things that I should say
say 'em loud, say 'em clear
for the whole round world to hear.

I wish I could share all the love that's in my heart
remove all the bars that keep us apart
I wish you could know what it means to be me
Then you'd see and agree
that every man should be free.

I wish I could give all I'm longing to give
I wish I could live like I'm longing to live
I wish that I could do all the things that I can do
though I'm way overdue I'd be starting anew.

Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
how sweet it would be if I found I could fly
Oh I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea
and I'd sing cos I'd know that
and I'd sing cos I'd know that
and I'd sing cos I'd know that
I'd know how it feels to be free
I'd know how it feels to be free
I'd know how it feels to be free


He Loves To Fly And He D'oh's

Tonight season number nineteen starts of one of my favorite TV-shows The Simpsons. The espisode is called 'He Loves To Fly And He D'oh's' and here is the synopsis.

After Homer saves Mr. Burns from drowning in a mall fountain, Burns thanks him by taking him on a whirlwind trip to Chicago on his private plane. Homer is smitten with the luxury jet and all the perks that come with it, including flying with song legend Lionel Richie, who serenades him with a customized version of "Say You, Say Me." After returning home, Homer makes it his mission to find a job that offers him the chance to fly on a corporate jet and enlists a life coach, guest star Stephen Colbert, to help fulfill this dream.

If the trailer is just a hint on how funny this movie is going to be then it's going to be one hell of joyride. Enjoy!

Is this me?

Last friday we had a small party at work in honor of Ellen, she left us to work at one of the biggest insurance companies in the Netherlands. If I say 'Even Apeldoorn bellen' all the dutch people know who I'm talking about. Although it was a sad day I seemed to smile and someone got me good. This must be the first and only picture I've ever been happy about. Like most people I don't like the way I look in pictures but this one seem to be doing me good, lol. So I didn't want it to keep away from anyone.


Wow, great graphic design!

I'm an auditory learner

I did a test which told me that I'm right-brained. The test also showed that I'm an auditory learner. Read all about it below.

Auditory learners tend to focus on auditory stimuli — things that they hear — when learning new information. They probably get a lot out of lectures and are able to process speeches quickly and accurately. In fact, readings might not make as much sense to them until they've heard a supporting lecture to emphasize the written word and they're more likely to listen to a lecture first and then take notes once they've processed the information.

Auditory learners probably prefer to speak someone's phone number out loud to memorize it than bother with writing it on a piece of paper they're going to lose anyway. They remember things by repeating them and probably prefer hearing instructions instead of wading through a written set of rules and directions. Auditory learners are better at making their points through talking rather than writing. This isn't to say they don't ever rely on their eyes instead of their ears. Of course there are numerous instances, which call for them to do so. All this really means is that they're predisposed to learning through hearing. This in part is what makes most auditory learners strong communicators, adept at socializing and communicating in face-to-face situations.

About 30% of people are auditory learners.

What these differences mean for you?
As a predominantly auditory learner, you likely find aural stimuli much more compelling and comprehensible than visual stimuli. To varying degrees, visual learners tend to feel that if they can't hear it, then they won't be able to properly synthesize it. You might feel a tenuous hold on information that is not presented aurally. You might even attempt to turn visual information into a aural cue you can use by speaking a reading out loud or listening to yourself go over the directions. These are the safeguards you might subconsciously take to trigger your memory on the subject at hand.

The flip side is that you are likely to feel quite confident when information is presented to you aurally. In fact, you are likely to feel more capable of grasping higher-level concepts that are presented through verbal words or sounds than simpler concepts that are presented in written signs.

To varying degrees, auditory learners tend to feel that if they hear it, then it might as well have not happened — that's how shallowly the information is going to be processed if it is not presented in sound. On the other hand, when information is presented aurally, you probably find yourself having no problem remembering it. Provided you can always control how information is presented to you, this auditory dominance is not a problem. However, our lives are complex, varied, and not entirely under our control. Hence, it behooves us all to learn to learn in different ways if we hope to continue to achieve and succeed.

Auditory learning is your strong suit; view it as such, as opposed to the only way in which you can learn. Visual learning is not only another option, but it is often a necessary addition to one's cognitive landscape. Very often, there will simply not be adequate time or opportunity to have information recited to you, and instead you will have to work off of written notes or other visual cues. It is interesting to note once again that visual learners tend to be very good writers, while auditory learners tend to excel in spoken communication. If you feel you would like to broaden you auditory-based abilities, perhaps you could consider viewing the visual process as an auditory one. When you are reading something, try to hear the words being spoken — or even consider reading them aloud to yourself, if need be. If you can transform visual processes into auditory ones using similar, creative methods, then you will be able to transition your mind into a visual modality, and thereby, vastly broaden your horizons.

Mescalito, the new Ryan Bingham album

Okay, most musicians and their record labels use any excuse to generate a buzz around them. The 'honest card' has been played multiple times and most of the time the musicians never follow through. Because they are just not as genuine as they say they are. Because non of the song, they have written them selfs or they rather show up at award ceremonies and be popular. In this case it's not just music marketing mumbo jumbo, it's the real deal, no tricks, no cards being hold back.

The first time I heard some of his song I knew I had to buy his record Dead Horses. His second album 'Mescalito' is coming out this October, the 3rd of October to be exact. And though it sounds more produced and less raw then the other, I'm buying it again.

The making of Mescalito

I like his raw voice and simplistic approach to his songs. Not that these songs are simple of thoughts or simple music. But rather give him an acoustic guitar and an amp and I'm sure he could out perform many musician just with his songs and not virtuous guitar play. He's a songwriter of the old tradition. He's Ryan Bingham.

The truth about ugly?

I bumped onto a great article on the blog of Creative Review, it's about 'The New Ugly'. Here are some quotes.

Exhibit A: Wolff Olins’ 2012 Olympics logo. When finally wheeled out to confront an ever-more-hostile national press, Wolff Olins creative director Patrick Cox claimed that “Its design is intentionally raw, it doesn’t… ask to be liked very much. It was meant to provoke a response, like the little thorn in the chair that gets you to breathe in, sit up and take notice.”

In addition, Wolff Olins’ chairman Brian Boylan claimed success for having “created something original in a world where it is increasingly difficult to make something different”. In other words, when we are surrounded by logos created to a slick, if mediocre, aesthetic standard, the only way to stand out is deliberately to reject those standards.

Read the article here!

Bio Energy: Urine Powerrrrrrrr!

I'm right-brained

I did a test and this is the result!

Most right-brained people like you are flexible in many realms of their lives. Whether picking up on the nuances of musical concerto, appreciating the subtle details in a work of art, or seeing the world from a different perspective, right-brained people are creative, imaginative, and attuned to their surroundings.

People probably see your thinking process as boundless, and that might translate to your physical surroundings as well. Some people think of you as messier than others. It's not that you're disorganized, it's just that you might use different systems to organize (by theme, by subject, by color). Straight alphabetization and rigidly ordered folders are not typical of right-brained behavior.

You are also more intuitive than many. When it comes to reading literature, you probably prefer creative writing or fiction over nonfiction. And when it comes to doing math, you might find you enjoy geometry more than other forms like algebra.

Your Brain Type Report will describe how and why each of the responses you chose while answering the Brain Test revealed that you are Right-brained dominant. It's ready right now!

You're a Right-brained!

So, I have a cat who's not afraid of the camera. He's one mean model, throwing different looks at me as if he's the world's top model. He's also thinking acting and gave some good 'play dead' shots!. Just click on the pics and this link for his portfolio!
