SUPERBOWL

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “B”, as in Big Wreck

I avoid the Superbowl at all costs. The game is usually a side show to the commercials we don’t get through cable in Canada. Most people watch it since it’s the championship game for the NFL & for the half-time show. I’m all for the CFL but even it has been boring this year & last year. The NFL has never impressed me & the Superbowl is right around my birthday at the end of January. The half time show I’ll watch the next day on www.youtube.com

There’s already people throwing up red flags about Bruno Mars being the half time entertainment. Fair is fair, he’s not everyone’s preferred act. Remember, you can’t please everyone all of the time!

I ask you this. What has been among the top songs of this year? Oh, “Uptown Funk” would be one of them, along with a few others. So what would you like to have as the half time entertainment? Bruno Mars is hot at the moment & will increase the number of viewers which is what the Superbowl is all about, making money for the league. Off of the top of my head you have these 3 options & maybe a few more I can’t think of at the moment….

Can anyone think of another song off of Mark Ronson’s album other than “Uptown Funk” feat. Bruno Mars? I can’t, I didn’t buy the album, I bought the song & attached it to a Bruno Mars album I already own.

What sparked this conversation? This….

I’m not the be all & end all of music. There’s quite a bit of music I know nothing about but I like discovering stuff I’ve never heard. Please teach me?

I went to Moose Jaw today around 10:30. My mother was getting fruit there off of a truck from B.C. I think it was? Brewster & I went for a “car ride”. Nobody can say either of those words around him unless he is going for a “car ride”. He gets really excited & instantly worries he’ll be left behind, as well as frantically looking for his “leash”, another word we can’t say around him. Moose Jaw is about 40-45 minutes away. After 10 minutes roughly, he falls asleep on my lap until the vehicle stops!

Still one of my favourite songs to play or listen to!!

Royal Blood performance. I think I shared this yesterday?

Our Lady Peace. I’m all about their 1st 4 albums. I do own a Greatest Hits & 3 or 4 other albums though.

This is from their 2nd album “Clumsy” which was their breakthrough album

The Agonist shared it, so here it is. They were in Regina last week on Thursday at The Exchange, I really wanted to go but I don’t go out much on weeknights & Kim doesn’t like metal.

This Muse album will be the biggest disappointment this year for me. I had really high hopes for this album. Their 2nd , 3rd, & 4th album were great studio albums as well as their 5th/Live at Wembley CD/DVD (H.A.A.R.P.) LANGUAGE!!!!!

This is from their 4th album

Here’s my favourite venue for live music in Regina! Fun to play at The Exchange & a great place to take in a show.

I wasn’t big on “All That Remains” when I saw them open for “In Flames” in Saskatoon

New Ken Tizzard album for $3.99 on iTunes. You’ll know him as the bassist for The Watchmen & Thornley.

I have never heard a bad cover of this song. The 2nd link is my favourite version though!

Songs I like. “Red Hot Chili Peppers” only 2 albums that float my boat.

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