I recently discovered Spotify (about time, I know) which lead to me rediscover Them Crooked Vultures; a very good rock-and-roll band compiled of artists from other rock superpowers; John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss). After happily listening to their self-titled album on repeat while at work all day, I did a quick Google search of the band and noticed quite a few pictures of Josh Homme with Anthony Bourdain. As described by Wikipedia, Bourdain is an American chef, author, and television personality. His television show, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, happens to be one of my favorite things to watch. So, I did a little more digging and found that Josh Homme was actually featured in one of the show’s episodes! And, through the magic of Youtube, I found the video, watched it, and am now sharing it with you!
When Homme talks about his hometown, I can’t help but be reminded of mine. While it wasn’t in the middle of the desert like Homme’s, it was very small and relatively far from many forms of entertainment. As Homme recounts of his hometown, we had to make our own entertainment as well. This probably did wonders for my creativity.
