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

Teens react to Pentatonix!

The Agonist is very heavy metal but I like it so here’s another review.

Oscar stuff probably most of the day. Tegan & Sara song for The Lego Movie.

Was it just Kim & I or did this sound a tiny bit flat all the way through the song on TV?

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.

AWESOME! Honey on tap directly from the hive!

“Rush needs to slow down”-Geddy Lee. How could a band named Rush slow down, isn’t that an oxy-moron, like Jumbo Shrimp?

A group I’ve never heard of have this song in some Top 10 chart, little bit like AC/DC

Soundgarden preform “Birth Ritual” for the first time since 1992. Hint at a new album in 2016 as well.

Apparently http://www.loudwire.com heard that Soundgarden would release a new album in 2016 as well!

April 7th, Foo Fighters HBO series will be released on DVD & blu-ray with bonus features. Great I bought the TV series on iTunes, maybe they should release bonus features on iTunes so I don’t have to dish out money for stuff I already own?

Jimmy Kimmel’s “School of Perfect Acting” & “Lie Witness News”

30 greatest shred albums of all time, no they’re not all rock or metal. Country & Blues albums as well.

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.

Kanye West & Rhianna announce first show together….moving on….

I hoped it would get better but it’s Marilyn Manson news.

I’m ready for the new Stone Sour album

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.

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.

Songs/Videos I like. “Billy Joel”
