Babymetal_Miami17

Rock history was made in Miami yesterday as several members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Babymetal on stage (in full warpaint!) for their final number “Gimme Chocolate!” at the American Airlines Arena in front of 21,000 screaming fans. Chad Smith played the drums. YouTube and other outlets has lit up like a Christmas tree and it has to be stated that Babymetal is gaining momentum and respect within the Rock & Metal field on a level that is just phenomenal. The musicians certainly appreciate them and that should be your cue right there. I just love what the Chili Peppers did here, they are obviously great people.

Watch a few YouTube clips here, here, here, here, here and here.

Tex Willer 38

TexWiller_MefistonKapina

As I sit here in Sweden, surrounded by countries that all still publish Tex Willer, I have to resort to desperate measures to get my fix. Like importing books from Finland. This is Tex Willer (issue) 38 from that market, titled “Mefiston Kapina” (Egmont, 2017). 306 pages in colour.

Brilliant.

Hedoban_10

Another brilliant Babymetal cover from Japanese publication Hedoban (issue 10). Here they play right into the mythology of Babymetal. I have the Special Editions of the first two CDs (with the DVD extras) coming in from different sources. Super excited.

TVMedia_29April17

Out today in Austria. TV Media. Kaley Cuoco gets a lot of covers in this region of the world. Looking forward to the release of the next season of The Big Bang Theory on DVD.

Hello France (2)

Newlook_mayjune17

French publication Newlook (May/June 2017). They go for action packed covers with a nice model to get your attention (in this case, Black Angelika). I like this cover.

And if you live in France, Stefan Molyneux explains why you need to ignore Emmanuel Macron in the upcoming election here. The guy has the entire establishment backing him up… This is Stefan at his very best.

Leader of the pack

TheLady_april28_17

Out today in the UK. Every week this publication comes up with a great cover. I would have been a subscriber by now if I lived over there.

Good job.

Hello Colombia

TVynovelas_colombia_742

And from Colombia we have TV y Novelas (issue) 742 that is out now. I have tried to figure out what it is that we see on the cover – is it a Pop group or the cast of some sitcom? – but not been successful. If this is a sitcom, I want to see it now.

Nice early 1970s vibe.
