LONG WEEKEND MONDAY UPDATE

It’s family day in Saskatchewan, a Provincial holiday.

Please don’t skip this first paragraph?

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.

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.

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle!

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!

We don’t have full on metal or rock festivals in Saskatchewan. The most recent one I was at was in 2000 way up north in Saskatoon. We have a weekend festival called “Folk Fest” or some other daylong festival in Wascana Park?

I haven’t watched the entire show. I’ve already laughed hysterically from what I’ve seen. I’ll watch the rest when Kim’s done work, a Federal Job, no family day off.

Don’t know why, I’ve just never understood Bill Murray’s sense of humour? Yes I’ve seen his movies & SNL reruns. Subjective I guess, like every art.

One of my preferred metal groups & didn’t know they had a new album out with an acoustic song? Well fill me with jelly & call me a donut!

I’m just impressed “Nazareth” members are still alive!

Hard rock/metal smack downs & yes the fist fight in Scotland between Mark Morton & Randy Blythe of Lamb of God is number 1.

I haven’t seen “Selma” yet I’ve heard many great things about it though. Why is it not nominated for any awards? For me it is a must see movie.

I like them but rarely listen to them.

Always check out the Rock It Out Blog or www.youtube.com/rockitoutblog
