The great Alan Hawkshaw, who created numerous 60’s and 70’s television theme songs, playing his original composition, Blarney Stoned, which was the theme song to Dave Allen at Large at the Jazz cafe in London.

The Present – Simon Pegg and Nick Frost should have done Star Wars

I fully recognize the need to own your own content in today’s day and age where viral videos can actually be a good thing, so a tip of the hat to the folks over at collegehumor.com for making this video tribute to Steven Spielberg and George Lucas available for all to see. That said, if you want to see something from the genius minds of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost before you see their Area-51 alien buddy flick, Paul, this is well worth the 2:34.
