That's Costanza isn't it?
Nah, doesn't look like Luka at all...
I'm not allowed to (real) comment in this thread as my dearest is a long term paid-up Nickleback fan club member and has pre-purchased front row for their up coming Melbourne show(s)
Some great art (and some really bad barista acting) in that clip. Gurgling the milk in the jug then pouring microfoam was pretty funny.
Wonder who did the actual pours and etching?
Makes me wonder how far into the toilet Jason Alexanders career really is.
After some Internet research I found the cafe used in the clip...
The place has two street frontages
The main entrance
8910 Washington Blvd, Culver City, California, United States
The back street entrance
8927 Lindblade Street,Culver City, California, United States
The start of the clip shows the back entrance side but when Brooke Burns enters she is coming in from the other side of the building. They did some serious editing to make it all look small and cosy, the actual cafe and gallery is huge.
Sadly the very funky cafe with fake grass walls closed down before they could cash-in on Brooke/Jason/Nickelback fan traffic.
...and I still don't know who did all those cool etchings
(assuming it wasnt Jason Alexander)
Wow, wish that my abstract, impressionism (code for bad) latte art impressed mrs mariner that much..... I'll have to improve my skills a bit more! Great clip.
Thanks Rick (and Andy for the background research) that is a very entertaining coffee clip.
Never heard Nickelback before either so educational as well.
You might have heard some of their earlier songs that were played on the radio pretty hard.
How you remind me
Figured you out
I had trouble getting the frame to stop in the right spot to see that group handle but it looks like it doesnt have a spring in it as the basket comes out of the handle mid air.
that's some CSI stuff going on in this thread
Sound like a mongrel cross b/w Live, the Screaming Trees and a lyricist from the Bold and the Beautiful.
That's a hilarious video clip, thought first that it was an golden oldie but then noticed that these guys started a world tour in July 2012?
Nickelback's older music was better than there new stuff. Its good to see though a band sticking around for so long and putting out so many albums.
As for coffee songs, there is a song called "Coffee Mug" by a band called The Descendants, defiantly not everyones taste but i like it...
Thanks for the additional clips Andy. As usual the Speedwagon nailed it with his comment. I am a fan of LIVE and that was the first thing that hit me. I probably missed them in the mass of '90s mediocracy. I will listen to a few more tracks (earlier however) as I am always looking for new (to me) music.
Just listened to "The State" on YouTube. Good Album. I like it. I can see from the comments on YouTube that there is considerable angst concerning an alleged 'sell-out' in their later albums. I will have to listen to a few more but I would buy "The State".
Somewhere in my back shed I have a VHS cassette with 'Live' Unplugged on MTV (if the possums haven't eaten it).......if you ever swing through Canberra you're welcome to it (though I'd wait til it's a bit warmer than at present). Currently listening to Weddings Parties Anything (a favourite band....and who don't really resemble Nickelback a great deal).
Others say the late 80s, when they built McLyneham to our north with lots of brick mansions, pillars and concrete front lawns.
Most residents are unaware of the secession however (I was particularly upset with the comments of Peter Reith one day.....). It's a funny mix of a place...students, Mormons, Buddhists, yuppies, people who moved into their homes new in the 1950s, junkies, people of most imaginable sexual persuasions, and quite a few possums.
Which are you?...students, Mormons, Buddhists, yuppies, people who moved into their homes new in the 1950s, junkies, people of most imaginable sexual persuasions, and quite a few possums.
Imaginable sexual persuasion indeed. I imagine some are Nickelback fans (to segue back on topic)
Definitely lots of Nickelback fans (nice segue).
I'm an ex-musician, ex-soldier, ex-form analyst, ex-a few things in financial markets, currently most of my time is spent supervising research students, but work with a few businesses operated by friends (not coffee-related).
Now, to see if anyone I know can identify Nickelback.......
Barry, I hope you will be taking some urgent steps to protect my LIVE VHS cassette from the possum threat. I haven't kept this bloody VHS player for all these years for nothing. I'm not too sure I will be "swinging" through Canberra, although that does cast some light on your comments about "most imaginable sexual persuasions". When I eventually hit the Wide Open Road, I'll bring you a Weddings Parties Anything album in trade, maybe for Father's Day. I told my family about this idea but it's A Tale they Won't Believe - it certainly earned The Scorn of the Women. I was keeping the album to sell, but after some Knockbacks in Halifax I think you may as well have it.
Will do Rocky. I think the tape in question also has Midnight Oil Unplugged following LIVE. Your knowledge of the WPA back catalogue is very impressive. It was, in fact, Scorn of the Women that I was listening to (I'd listened to a cover of Eric Bogle's 'And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda' and thought Scorn of the Women was a nice follow up).
To return to Nickelback, I think you are right...it is a lot more LIVE than Screaming Trees (the one bit that is familiar is a Screaming Trees song 'I Nearly Lost You There' that has a similar pause or time change to the Nickelback one). However, lyrics are definitely from the pen of a West Coast TV muppet.
PS: How could i forget........WPA's 'A Decent Cup of Coffee'....worth a listen for all on this site.

Barry, I'm a bit freaked-out that you knew I was a big Oils fan.
Just because I come from A Place Without a Postcard - a Redneck Wonderland - Capricornia!
I guess I have been known to Breathe a little too much Diesel and Dust at times (too much of this and a Species Deceases!) but it's what happens when you live too close to Blue Sky Mining. Having to live in these areas can cause Head Injuries - you hear Bird Noises and see Red Sails in the Sunset.
Never mind, we're counting down (10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1) to when the dust clears and we can see the Earth and Sun and Moon again.
Anyhow, good lyrics are overrated - have you forgotten most of the stuff written in the '50s, '60s and '70s ? (I'll exempt Billy Joel and Ian Anderson from that statement)
whoops... meant to say I always wanted a Martin
