I’m going to leave this first paragraph until I have 100 subscribers

Really please help me out?

PLEASE share this link & pass it around to those that might enjoy. Tell them how to subscribe from a desktop or laptop computer! Let’s get some more people on board? http://www.amillionmilesawayblog.com Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. I’ll do this so nobody else has to. I’m on face book & email only. I’ve found people on face book that I’ve lost track of over the years, so let’s use email to talk with each other. Up there are instructions on how to subscribe. I’m at 30 subscribers so all 30 of you please help me out?
Even though you subscribe to the blog I always recommend coming to the site to read it in case someone comments on a topic. Comments are always welcomed. If you’re using “Internet Explorer” or “Google Chrome” as a web browser the http://www.youtube.com links will be open to show you the title, artist & a still photo of the video. I have to switch between the 2 since the audio doesn’t work all of the time on one of them.

I like a bit of rap & a bit of country. I don’t by them though, Kim’s the big country fan here. If she buys it & I like it, I’ll put it on my iPod. Dixie Chicks are my go to country music. Something that doesn’t have that country twang sound to it. If I were to buy it, there’s a 99.9% chance that I won’t like it & I will have wasted $13.99

That’s weird?? Even Dave Grohl says when he meets fans the kid is usually wearing a Nirvana shirt & the parent is wearing a Foo Fighters shirt?

I will call him a cheater & a flat out liar to everyone, fans, players, friends, & team mates until forever. The fans at baseball games when A-ROID is there WILL boo him for all of those things. This is what is disgusting to me. You can use steroids 3 times & on the 3rd time you’re dismissed from baseball entirely. If you’re an on field manager & bet on your team to win the World Series once, you’re gone? So cheating is better than gambling on your own team to win?

This is not a live show if it has pre-recorded backing tracks. If it’s electronic I could understand it & Tool does it but they bring the samplers on stage & use them as an instrument the drummer and vocalist both operate samplers on stage. They have nothing to hide, but KISS does. Fall Out Boy use samples on their albums, I’ve never seen Fall Out Boy live though. They tend to think that’s what will save rock music, I don’t think so. At least that’s my take on it.
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-02-25/kiss-nothing-to-hide-over-backing-tracks

Songs/videos I like. “The Birds of Satan” not metal. Taylor Hawkins (FF drummer) side project. He drums and sings live.

Oscar stuff probably most of the day. Tegan & Sara song for The Lego Movie.
http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/videos/tegan-and-sara-lonely-island-bring-awesome-lego-insanity-to-oscars-20150222

Was it just Kim & I or did this sound a tiny bit flat all the way through the song on TV?
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/tim-mcgraw-honors-glen-campbell-with-moving-oscars-performance-20150222

I’ll be honest. I didn’t watch much of the Oscars. I saw Tim McGraw as well as the Tegan and Sara performance & whatever awards were in between. I didn’t see most of the movies that were nominated. Not because I didn’t want to but because I’m lazy & I’d prefer to rent them from iTunes or just buy them on blu-ray. We bought “Gone Girl” on blu-ray the day it was available for purchase and “Sex Tape” which wasn’t as funny as I’d hoped.

Didn’t know “The Darkness” were still around? I like them, I remember listening to a British radio interview with Dave Grohl when I lived with my parents and heard their single. I instantly loved that song.
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-02-23/the-darkness-unleash-barbarian

This blew my mind when I first heard it on on Dave Grohl’s interview.

Still waiting to preview the album on iTunes.

I know that the next Finger Eleven album is done the recording process, maybe mixing and mastering left to do, mixing should be done or close to. I read that they had finished recording in December or early January? I hope they don’t make “Them vs. You vs. Me” again? “Life turns Electric” was a step up but still quite different than their previous stuff. These are both from their self titled 3rd album


“Them vs. You vs. Me” was the next album & didn’t sound anything like Finger Eleven to me or a few others. Good album but drastic change. I’d prefer a group to sound the same and change a within their genre.
Not like old U2 but I like it.

Baseball stuff which isn’t all that popular with most people.
I say “A-Roid there your seat on the bench & get comfortable”. I don’t care if his body can still do those things without steroids, ban him for infinity. He flat out cheated to a point he didn’t play one game all season, & next time, his third time, he’s out. Welcome back to the most hated man in professional baseball!

The Toronto Blue Jays didn’t do enough in the off season. This year could be as bad as last year if the injury bug gets them again.
http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/blue-jays-done-enough-fix-bench-issues/
I totally agree with speeding up the game & the 4 determined starters are really impressive as well as the potential for the 5th starter or game closer. I still look at this season as a wait & see though. I’d have every opposing team throw at his head one time every 3 game series.
