Modern Vintage – Modern Classic

For all my adult life I have been a fan of Mötley Crüe. They epitomised the sleazy glam rock genre perfectly and their band members seemed to live their life that way too.

This all changed during 1987 when Sixx (Nikki Sixx is the bassist) almost died from a heroin overdose. He subsequently cleaned up his act and wrote a book based on his journal entries called “The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star”.

ATV2 & XBMC – Totally Feeling The Love

Modern Family

I posted this on Facebook already but had difficulties sharing. When I found Mia sitting in the dark in the kitchen, as I was making dinner, I thought it was funny to see everyone in different rooms not interacting with each other but with technology on their own-some. So I thought I would capture the moment as best I could.

Sophie was around too, helping Kitty at one point to play Angry Birds. Frankie too was undoubtedly playing games. His laptop is my old laptop which has been rejuvenated by installing Jolicloud as an operating system. Since he is the main user he reckons that is a lot faster than Windows XP was.

So, without further ado – the video..
