As frontman of Weezer, Rivers Cuomo has penned enough power pop anthems to put a poet laureate to shame. But behind the lyrical sorcery is just a regular dad in specs – a guy who would sooner take a vow of silence than yabber on about himself. Unless he’s on Twitter, that is, in which case the weirdness flows freely from his head.

Slavoj Žižek, rock star philosopher and critical theorist, takes on hypocrisy, cheap Hollywood Marxism and the final crisis of capitalism. Chad Muska lifts his toes out of Hollywood hot tubs, to confirm he is one hundred per cent skate. Cory Lopez lets us get close and personal at the O’Neill Cold Water Classic New Zealand, to peek at life between the waves. Nyjah Huston is coming of age and proving he can stand on his own. Werner Herzog takes time out from promoting Cave Of Forgotten Dreams to riff and digress anecdotally about the issues close to his heart.
