ZO2 - the latest in Metallurgy

It's Tuesday and time to pick a clip from YouTube to ponder.

I recently decided to upgrade part of my entertainment system and I'm now a proud owner of a big flat HDtv. As a result of this purchase, and the fact that I don't actually have a subscription to HD cable, I find myself constantly clicking around looking for good (HD) content. Last week, as I was flipping through, I paused at IFC.

Not to be confused with that DC organization connected to the World Bank Group, the Independent Film Channel shows movies and tv shows "uncut." Yeah, uncut. I'm not sure how they get away with this, but I guess it's cuz it's cable. Every once in a while, there's a nice R rated nude scene, which is a bit of a treat these days for me, since I swore off internet porn on January 2. Now I'm like a 14 year old boy. I'm thinking about signing up for the Frederick's of Hollywood catalog, ya know, cuz Christmas is just around the corner.

What does this have to do with YouTubesday? Well, one of the new IFC shows that recently debuted is called "Z Rock." It's a pseudo reality show that features the real-life band "ZO2," and mixes in actors to help create zany adventures for this struggling rock-trio. The one episode I've seen so far was fairly amusing (and was uncut as advertised), and I paused long enough to watch the whole show.

As it turns out, ZO2, aka the Z brothers, are on some sort of tour and are coming to Jaxx in less than 2 weeks. DCRC has been looking for a good excuse to drive 40 mins to Springfield, VA and see what kinda venue Jaxx really is, so this was as good an excuse as any.



It's probably gonna suck.

I saw the premiere episode last week. It started of a little slow, but ended up being pretty funny.

Looking forward to the trip to Jaxx, it will be good to be back in the old hood....

You also forgot to mention that ZO2 is opening for local metal legends KIX.

Didn't realize Kix was local. Or that they were metal legends. Did they ever had a hit? Were on MTV much (the true sign of success when we were growing up)?

I thought I had IFC but I don't. I was thinking of AMC. I can't watch Z Rock but at least I get to watch Mad Men.

Kix are from Baltimore, I believe. And they did, in fact, have a few big MTV hits in the 1988-1989 region. Enough to make me a huge fan despite the fact that I lived in Ohio.

Red light, green light, TNT, baby!

Jumbo Slice said...

I'm suprised admitting you've sworn off internet porn has not provoked more discussion.

Jimbromski said...

Kix are from Hagerstown. They were so awesome that they named the cereal after them.

Potsy swore off i-pr0n on Jan 2 after there was a sword-crossing incident in a scene he was shooting w his webcam.

Potsy said...

yeah. I'm sure no one wanted to know that information, or didn't believe me. What do you expect though? I'll bet only the Anonymous care to share about their porn habits.
