The Balkan Falcon (or why you should move to Serbia)

Nenand Kristic is the third most eligible bachelor in Serbia, according to Serbia's version of People. Below the intrepid Ian Eagle and Mark Jackson explain -- or try to explain.

Reasons You Should Move to Serbia:
1. The third-most eligible bachelor is Nenad Kristic
2. Now that Kosovo has declared independence from Serbia, the list of Serbia's Most Eligible Bachelors, already quite questionable, has been further depleted.
3. As far as names of countries go, Montenegro sounds like it has elegant casinos.
4. According to his blog, the third-most eligible bachelor has a girlfriend, meaning the #3 spot is currently vacant:

I have a girlfriend. I’ve had a girlfriend for five years and she’s really great. That’s the first time I’ve heard about that. I never heard about that and I’m really surprised. I think it’s not really true. I need to look on the internet and make sure. What can I say? I have a girlfriend; I’m not married but I’m living with my girlfriend. I don’t know if that’s true. I’m going to ask Ian Eagle about that; maybe he just made up that story." - Nenad Kristic

King of Drolls?

It's been too long since you've heard from the Baron. To make up for it, please enjoy one of my favorite bands.

The Grand Boulevard Research Department has discovered the MySpace page of the Norwegian band, King of Trolls. It's the best Norse Legend-based song since Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" (that's the link to that personal favorite). If you're in Larvik in June, check them out.
