Thank Grohl it’s Friday

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? www.amillionmilesawayblog.com I’M TIRED OF BEING A SALESMAN Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a wwww.youtube.com link, that is always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website. This is for anyone who’s into music & those that are on email & don’t subscribe to a newsletter on a website. I’ll do this so nobody else has to. Everyone has an email, not everyone is on face book or twitter. I’m not on twitter, 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. If you want to “follow” me without being on face book, this is the place to be. Up there are instructions on how to subscribe. I’m at 26 subscribers so all 26 of you please help me out?  This is also for a lot for those who aren’t on face book! Everyone has an email account, not everyone has an instagram, twitter or face book account. I don’t care if they know me. If they enjoy pop, rock, metal or country music this is another place to be from a Canadian point of view. Beastie Boys are the extent of my hip-hop/rap knowledge unless you want to go old school from the ‘90s. Kris Kross, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, C + C Music Factory, Young MC, etc.

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.

This tiny blog has become really important to me. Why do I listen to different genres of music? They hit me hard emotionally. I didn’t cry but I teared up the first time I saw Tool live in Edmonton during the summer of 2006. Why? It was Tool doing their craft live really well. That is the only time lights & videos have ever done anything for me. Whenever I go to see a group live I sit near the soundboard if possible, why? That’s where whoever is doing the sound for the show will hear it best! I don’t care if I’m on the floor up against the barrier. I want it to sound good! Music involvement is said to increase the knowledge for math in students!

I may have had 16 Tony Roma’s chicken wings & a schooner for the price of a pint. Yes Rydell, I ate my nubs! Back in my day they were $0.25 per wing, now they are $7 per pound (8 wings) There was a sale on though $3.50 per pound with the purchase of a beer.
