National Geographic Goes to 11...

You might remember Christopher Guest from Spinal Tap. Now, the National Geographic Channel has an all new documentary on the history of Stonehenge. Nigel Tufnel...er, Christopher Guest as Nigel hosts the promos for the documentary. The documentary is called Stonehenge Decoded and is based on the history of the giant monument. The entire piece airs June 1.


For a faux band, I always thought Spinal Tap were pretty good. Of course their songs are funny, but some of them are no more ridiculous than tunes that were "serious" hits.


I won't lie: I'd love if Spinal Tap played Rocklahoma. Here's the band performing "Stonehenge." One of my favorite parts from This Is Spinal Tap.



Here's the promo for the documentary I mentioned above.



I am so watching this in June. Me, some popcorn and a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Thank goodness for simple pleasures.

Brilliant. Gotta love Spinal Tap. There's an even better mockumentary called Bad News, from the guys who did The Young Ones. There were two episodes of a show called 'The Comic Strip Presents', on the band, and they also had an album and played Donnington.

I loved Bad News! I watched the Young Ones a lot as a kid. :)

I think it's fantastic that National Geographic got Christopher Guest to host. That's brilliant.

I recently heard that Stone Henge was vandalized. :(
