I got into New York late last night from a cold Miami, a nice rundown to come. Jonathan Levine and Shepard Fairey counting cash.
I just read a couple, ok many reviews for this documentary, “Anvil, The story of Anvil”, lets just say there’s not one bad review out there. Meet the band that influenced Slayer, Metallica, GNR, and so many more, but never really made it big. Here’s the premise, “At 14, best friends Robb Reiner and Lips made a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, hailed as the “demi-gods of Canadian metal, ” influenced a musical generation that includes Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams.” The film was director by Sacha Gervasi, who at 16 left home to tour with the band. In 2003,he reconnected with them and begin the process to make the documentary. for more info and clips of the film click here.

Australia beer company Toohey‘s has a pretty cool promotion based on the 6 degree’s of seperation. “Everybody is connected to everybody else by no more than six personal contacts. But is it only a theory? tooheys Extra Dry is creating a TV show to find out.”
So you need to send in a video of who you want to meet, they will give you a 6 pack some cash and a camera crew, you set off to meet 5 people who will lead you to the 6th person the one you want to meet. It sounds like it is a pretty cool concept lets see if they can pull it off. If it was done in the US, I think it would involve dancing.
Check out the promo video on their site. At least they are planing on introducing you to cool people. Artist, designers, musicians.
