Okay - every now and then the universe goes wild and produces amazing stuff that makes me shake my head and say what?? This time it's a webshow called "Sam Mason (the former pastry chef of New York's famous WD-50 who's currently opening a new space called Tailor) and indie rock bands. Mason will invite his favorite touring bands into his apartment for a little cooking 101 and in turn, the band will do a live set.

The pilot, which features New York's own The Cloud Room, was picked up by OnNetworks - an Austin, Texas based new media company - for 8 online episodes.

Oh and I actually heard about this show a month or so ago, but somehow it never registered in my brain. It wasn't until someone told me that The Cloud Room was on the pilot that I remembered it. In an "it's a small world" sort of way, I went to college with one of their members. (That weird noise you just heard? That was the sound of my universe popping).

Good music, good food, fun bands? You bet I'll keep my eye on this one.
