The other day, I had the urge to visit Flat Eric from the Levi's tv commercials. Back then, I used to listen to it over and over again. It has a catchy tune. The clip that I viewed years ago was good and clear (the ad is from 1999). But, now I can't find a clip with a good quality. It kinda make you dizzy. Bummer. In YouTube it's smaller, so for some people it might be easier on the eyes to view it there (well, for me it was).

If I find a better quality clip, I'll replace it. There are also other Levi's commercials with this yellow little fella (like the one with the cop) on YouTube.

Have You Seen The Babes Yet?

Have you seen the Evian's skating babies ad yet? If not, you can view it out here. It's a very popular video on the internet.

You can see the ad in Evian's via YouTube which which includes a direct link to Evian, but not to the Babes page. Going to the Evian's babies page via YouTube can be confusing though. So if you find yourself confused or don't want to go to YouTube, you can use the last link to go directly to the babies page right here.

At the Evian's website you'll find additional "items" regarding the video: teasers, making of babies interview, music, and the babies on Facebook and goodies. You can also view it either in French or English. Just click on "language" at the very bottom left. It's hard to see it, it's so small and not very visible that I myself nearly missed it.

Evian Roller Babies international version


If you have trouble going to Evian from YouTube, since the link goes directly to the Evian's homepage, just go head directly for the babes via the Evian's link below.

It's easy to access the babies page from the Evian's main page (once there all you have to do is to click on the "visit the website" option where the baby's image is. You'll find your self at the babies page), but I do realize that it might still be confusing for some people.

The Vintage Drum Center (and Museum)

A nice site with pictures of drum machines from the drum museum. The Snare Drum Museum and the Drum Set Museum have many photos. The photos are good, but I was a bit bummed that they were all black and white. I bet the drum sets look great in color. The museum does have has some from first half of the 20th century, but most of them are from the 60's and the 70's. The last two snare drum pictures at the bottom are two of the oldest ones on this museum. The very last one is from 1800's (the dark one) and the one above it is from 1919.

There is also an online store where you can buy drums that are both current and vintage, and other drum related items but there aren't many photos in that section.

There are all type of resources such as "how to" do this and that (for example, restorations tips), and how to date drums. This site is pretty big with much information.

Robin Hood Festival

The Robin Hood Festival is based in Sherwood Oregon and has been running since 1952 (as you can tell from the banner). This year the festival will be on July 19th, in just a few days. So if you want to go, you better hurry over there. It has been a long time since I have been into a medieval festival. I wish I could check it out. This festival seems like a fun place to take your family to and have a good time.


However, if you want to visit the actual Sherwood Forest that is in legendary Robin Hood story, you'll have to go to or be at Nottinghamshire in England where it's located. Check out Wikipedia for a very detailed page about this Sherwood Forest. It's has excellent resources. I did see the official site for this forest, but I really liked the Wikipedia page better. Actually, I should say that the second Wikipedia page is Robin Hood of the Sherwood Forest in England. It's a great page too.
