Friday Video – Green Day, “Peacemaker”

…performed on the drums by a 6-year-old boy.

Playing drums is much harder than it looks. Playing Green Day songs is even harder than playing most other songs, because Tre Cool is tre fast and tre good. So how awesome is it to see a 6-year-old boy named Kyle tear up the 21st Century Breakdown track “Peacemaker” – left-handed on a righty set, no less – like it ain’t no big thing? We need to get him in a band with that Japanese guitar prodigy. They’d rule the world.

Bottoms Up Timepiece review

Happy Hour Timepieces contacted us regarding their new “Bottoms Up” watch that helps makes happy hour more fun than ever! The new Bottoms Up watch is not your normal wrist watch as this accessory sports a patented bottle opener built seamlessly into the band buckle. That’s correct folks your watch can now double up as a back up bottle opener. (That’s a very cool idea in my book) I tested the opener on a fine Domestic beverage for review purposes only (ha ha) and it worked like a charm.

This watch also look sharp! Our review watch has a thick black leather strap with a gold gradient face which looked very sporty and stylish. I had more than a few compliments and when I told them that the Bottoms Up timepiece can also open bottles it quickly became a conversation “piece” as well.

You can learn more at http://www.happyhourtimepieces.com/ and for a suggested retail price tag of $149.95 this could be a great watch to add to your stable of timepieces.

  

Friday Video – Mazes, “Most Days”

Man, is this a sight for sore eyes and ears. This clip from London garage poppers Mazes will have Gen Xers pogoing in their seats, and the clip, which is an animated 8mm-style clip of some kids skateboarding and getting into trouble, is vintage “120 Minutes” material. So tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1991.

Bullz-Eye Goes Back to “Breaking Bad”

It all started, as many things do, with a seemingly innocuous question.

In early January 2011, Bryan Cranston was doing a small round of press for his new Atom.com series, “The Handlers,” and once I learned that there was a very decent possibility that I could pull one of the few available timeslots, there was never any chance that I wouldn’t throw my hat into the ring. As regular Bullz-Eye readers know, I’ve chatted with Mr. Cranston on several occasions – on the phone, at the TCA tour, even on the set of “Breaking Bad” – and he’s never proven to be anything less than a fantastic interview.

Better yet, as a result of these recurring conversations and encounters, we’ve reached a point in our relationship (such as it is) where the man actually knows who I am. Having spent many years being steadfastly convinced that no one knows who I am, I can’t tell you what a pleasure it was to get on the phone with him in January and have him kick off our chat by asking A) how I was, and B) when I was coming back to the set of “Breaking Bad.”

I answered the only way I possibly could: “You tell me when I’m coming, and I’m there.”

“All right, we’ll work it out again,” replied Cranston. “We’ll have another caravan.”

My heart soared at his words, of course, but as time passed, I…

Okay, you know, this would be the perfect place for me to say that Cranston’s words faded into hazy memories, and that I received a pleasant reminder of his comments a few months later when I received an email which said, “Come join us on the ‘Breaking Bad’ set!” But that’s not what happened.

What really happened was that I committed his comment to memory, dwelled on it for two months, and when a fellow TV critic got his invite and I didn’t, I promptly dropped a line to Cranston’s publicist and said, “Hey, remember when Bryan asked me when I was coming back to the set? I hear they’re doing that press caravan he mentioned!” A few days later, I got an email from Sony in which, without preface, they asked to confirm my travel arrangements to Albuquerque.

Eh. Either way, I still got to visit the set of “Breaking Bad” again. I ain’t complaining.
