Looking for a Post Mad Men Show ?

So if u r over Dollhouse like the majority of viewers seem2b and looking for a post Mad Men type of show I’d recommend United States of Tara S1E8 ere. Just download first 8 eps now, guaranteed unless u dont like the post internet English language. I think its brilliant. Love love the @diablocody script, love the multiple personalities, and the so 2009 family dysfunctional drama with heart. Now I have to go to work :) It seems Bill Paxton prefers IWC over Uboat as a watch, which given he is a Mormon cultist makes sense :

A Blog to Read dot com :While most versions are in steel. Bill Paxton’s Aquatimer is in stainless steel that gives it a better gloss, and more heft. The case is a decent 42mm wide, so as not to make it massive. One of the best parts of the watch is the bracelet. With a very unique design, it gives the watch a lot of character and tapers oh-so-nicely while being integrated with the case. A rubber strap version is also available. The model of this precise watch is IW371928. These are actually of the more rare IWC Aquatimer watches. They are also pretty well priced given the brand and the features. With a retail price of $5,700, you can find street prices closer to $4000 (online at least). I have a good feeling this watch is also right out of Bill Paxton’s personal collection. I do think he is great in his part in HBO’s Big Love, but I still can’t seem to forget his whiny but charming Spacemarine Character Private Hudson in the movie Aliens.”

#biglove was cruising along last night as the polygamist marriage(s) r never easy but the white wedding at end was a sledge hammer. Its HBO after all and well worth a leech. Oh and Bill Paxton lead dude wears an IWC watch in the show supposedly click 2read.

It’s a Model + Tweetable.tv Life

OK Im off to Melbourne to discuss Tweetable.TV + post keyword blogosphere filtering with the very rare breed downunder of exited geek types. If only we could be, well I could be, 10% of how focused Brad Feld is (altho things r starting 2come 2gether - the key projects to focus on : just focusing on my not total project shit, dealing with less people in denial - pros are better than amateurs unless they have proven success elsewhere + cash should follow momentum) :

Investment vs Speculation : “When I reflect on this, I realize that I spend 99.9% of my time as an investor and 0.01% of my time as a speculator. Whenever I realize that I’m in a speculative thought process (such as noticing the Dow on CNN on the ubiquitous airport TVs), I immediately try to stop. My goal is to spend 100% of my time as an investor.”

Brad Feld would also be happy to see Dave Morin of Facebook preach what looks like a close reflection/’refraction of Brads 2004/5 RSS Thesis merged with his 2007-9 Implicit Web One. Should be good for Mobius investee companies. Via Dave Morin (also check out the preso there altho mostly they have one slide per page pity there is no audio to go with preso over on slideshare… i was impressed/jealous of facebook having 660k developers for free via the API):

Alot of people have the wrong idea about Underbelly : Tale of 2 Cities. The 2 city narrative is working well this season; Switching b/w Bondi NSW + Richmond VIC. It allows characters to develop and the speed/tone is much more Sopranos than Season 1. This has actually annoyed the Packed to the Rafters mainstream audience who complain "nothing happens" except the tits they complain about. Which last night wasnt that much, which again had them confused. Anyway it's great acting and will hopefully provide Matty Newton his entry to Hollywood and being an Aussie leading man.

Grab the Latest Underbelly

S2E5;ere. If I was to pick the ultra performers from #Underbelly this season : From the Sydney/Bondi side, I think Matthew Newton has been brilliant. He’s going to be a real star actor if he doesnt burn out. Forget his dad, any1 who heard him live on radio before the infringement, or doing improv on Thank God You’re Here, or that mag show on SBS…. will know he’s damn good. This role Kiwi accent and all will make him. Nida training while not making is helping him deliver at a high level. I also think his mistress is not a bad actress, better than what u get on #dollhouse. Over in Melbourne, it’s sad Ray Chuck is dead, as (the actor that played him) seemed to have the strongest screen presence, kinda looks like + has the same impact as Sam Worthington, who’s probably Australia’s most working actor of the upncomer level below singing dancing slaying hosting Wolverine.

BBC 3's Being Human was absolutely fn brilliant - 6 part mini-series about a werewolf, ghost and vampire trying to hence title be human. Awesome there is 8 ep S2. Really recommended, the show sharing some of Dr Who's writers/creators, read for a bit more.

Flight of Conchords are at top of their game, they have no bad material. This week the ep is about the matrix believing NZ Prime Minister who Murray is managing, Art Garfunkel parody bands n love interests also included.
Flight of Conchords are at top of their game, they have no bad material. This week the ep is about the matrix believing NZ Prime Minister who Murray is managing, Art Garfunkel parody bands n love interests also included. Sepinwall blurb click2read fullpiece : “After loading up on every negative Aussie stereotype with “Unnatural Love,” “Prime Minister” gets back to the self-deprecating humor about New Zealand, where the prime minister (played by veteran Kiwi actor Brian Sergent) turns out to be just as ineffectual and clueless as Murray. He lugs around his own suitcase (not even one with wheels!), has no security detail, believes in The Matrix (leading to the hilarious deja vu/glitch/multiple Elton Johns joke at the episode’s end) and apparently is leader of a country with only one gun. Very silly, very laid-back, and very “Conchords.”

Comfy Kix + Uboat Flightdeck

What would be more ideal to wear to new fashion related meeting today would be in a U-boat Flightdeck 50mm or Welder K24 PVD Fluoro 48mm watch. Possibly wearing some Adidas Originals + Super Sunglasses or more likely the usual supra, common projects suspects.

Comfy Kix on a supposed to be 32C but now who knows ?
