Everyone loves breaking guitars ;)

It's fascinating, that Google today found almost a Million (912.000 to be exact) entries at 5.33 MEST when you typed in "united breaks guitars", leave the quotation marks away, and you'll get aprx. 18.500.000 results.
Well Mr Carroll, that's quite a good amount of online publicity I'd say ;)

Why we all should love Web 2.0

That's, why! This vid got it all in it: diggs, duggs, the "famous" RickRoll video, Chuck Norris, chatters' abbreviations, spelling errors, Photoshop, spammers, sexism, racism, the "very famous" David Hasselhoff advanatar (I really don't understand why so many internet users have this as their advantar....) and loads of "adult language".......
Gosh, how we love it!

"United Breaks Guitars" - Now that's a complaint!

For those of you, who haven't seen it, YET: For Dave Carroll and his band the very last way of complaining about United Airlines was writing a song ... a quite good one I must say, even for people like me who are not into American Folk that much.
The video is currently spreading all over the blogosphere, and even big news magazines, like the German (!) "Spiegel" are meanwhile reporting about the tragic story of Dave Carroll's broken Taylor guitar and his 9-months-of-complaining-odyssey to get compensation from United. Enjoy!

PS: The full story can be read at Dave Carroll's homepage.

Must-see for this summer

This movie is my personal must-see movie for summer 2009, if only because of the music or because the protagonists are cruising around in an original Merc 280SE (and in the end even crashing it).
And yes, well, the story is quite realistic as well, isn't it?

Some people may think this is going to be a kind of grown-up-version of "Hey Dude, Where's My Car?" but I am wondering if this movie can be called "grown-up" at all. Probably not...
By the way, it appears that crashing classical cars in popular movies has become a new trend amonst film-makers. Just think of the first scene in the Star Trek trailer, in my opinion the far best scene in the whole movie after all...
