Stay tuned for the 4th season of 30 Rock - soon. but not enough.

Thank god for love

This song makes my heart dance everytime I hear it, reminding me that love will save the day.

Exactly 40 years ago (-2 days) The Monkees appeared on the Johnny Cash show (June 19th 1969), and even though their career as a group was coming to it's end at the time, this cheerful band knew how to smuggle a smile every time.

Two interesting trivia facts about the Monkees:

1. Jimi Hendrix (!) was their opening act for their 1967 tour.

2. They starred in the freaky movie "Head" (1968 ) which was co-written & co-produced by Jack Nicholson (!!)

Mike Patton´s Mondo Cane - Deep Deep Down

Mike Patton's Mondo Cane performing Ennio Morricone's "Deep Deep Down," the love theme from Mario Bava's popart 60's film DANGER: DIABOLIK.

Ennio Morricone & Mario Bava are two names that are so well crafted in my life, so seeing it performed live by such an expressive vocalist, a full choir and orchestra brought tears to my eyes. God bless them, every one.

It is amazing to see such a tribute to Mario Bava, Ennio Morricone, Marisa Mell and John Phillip Law, especially when you think that this original film was made by modest & humble artists forty years ago, disregarded by many back then but recive a cult status over the years.

The last time I was so excited was when the Bestie Boys made their own tribute to Bava film with Body Moving:

Mille grazie to all those great artists.

Thanks to DJ Pilooski and his roof burning set in Tel Aviv last Friday, I've discovered this killer edit (Wade Nickols) of the good old "Happy Together" by the Turtles. Jumping all around the living room with your hands up in the air is totally acceptable.
