Better Sing Saul – Saul Goodman’s first trailer is spot on

I was (am) a huge fan of Breaking Bad (I even own one of those hipster trendy Heisenberg t-shirts) and, like every one else, I loved the character of Saul Goodman, Walter’s more-than-shady lawyer.

However, when I heard a spin-off was coming along I wasn’t immediately on-board with the whole idea. I like shows that end and stay ended, and Breaking Bad’s finale was a remarkable achievement considering all the hype and pressure around it. I never felt I needed more Breaking Bad and certainly not more Saul Goodman.

However, the show’s brilliant marketing campaign is gradually selling me on the spin-off. I might not need it, but I can sure as hell enjoy it. I mean, have you seen the fauxdvertising billboards?

Better Call Saul

If that doesn’t make you want to watch the show, maybe the first trailer for the show – a music video called Better Call Saul performed by the deep rumbling voice and mad guitar skills of Junior Brown – will. Check it out:

The lyrics are clever and the music is spot on. If the show is half as good as its promotion, it’ll be damn great.

Online Treasures part I: “Let there be Music!”

Today I’m introducing “Online Treasures“, a new segment on this blog (because you can’t have a serious blog without stuff like this, apparently) dedicated to some of my favourite things to be found on the World Wide Web. Some of them are quite well known, while others might be slightly more obscure.

Each installment will be dedicated to a certain subject or theme and, since I can’t really compromise to a strict schedule, all I can say is that I’ll be publishing these as often as I can.

So, on with the show.
The subject of this first installment of “Online Treasures” is “Music” and to kick things off to a great start I’ll begin with one of my all-time favourites:

Miracle of Sound
