Song of the Day #22

I heard a song which blew my mind in the sense that I wrote the opposite of it.  I wrote "Spring is Here" and Hawksley Workman wrote "Autumn's Here."  So it is the next song of the day!

Random Fact #6 - "Eat It" by Weird Al Yankovic

What do you know, I'm back with another random fact.  As you can tell by the title, this has everything to do with "Eat It" by Weird Al Yankovic.  Oddly enough I heard this on "Q," a CBC talk show which has Yankovic as a guest on today's show.

The song "Eat It" by Weird Al Yankovic reached number one in Australia.  I bet you are thinking big deal.  Well, "Beat It" by Michael Jackson, the song in which he parodies only reached number three.  Also, it was "Eat It" that made Weird Al Yankovic uber famous.  Here is the song "Eat It" for your enjoyment.

Saskatchewan Roughriders Start 0-3

Have you had enough time to digest the 33-3 beat down the Saskatchewan Rougriders were handed courtesy of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats?  I understand if you haven't.  If you haven't seen the highlights of the game.  Here they are.

The Roughriders haven't had this bad of a start in 11 years.  So we haven't been accustomed to seeing this bad of a start in some time.  What is needed to be done to improve this team?  Does Darian Darant need to sit out a game and Ryan Dinwiddie put in.  Put in second stringers and back ups in place of our starters?  What is the answer to the problems facing the team?  It was said that special teams was the problems.  But if special teams got us the points, than that's not the problem.  Something's got to give or we won't make the playoffs.

Busking

So I went busking for the first time yesterday.  If you live in Saskatoon than you'll know that the spot to busk is on Broadway and 10th in front of the Bulk Cheese Warehouse (awesome store).  It was so much fun.  I can't believe how much fun it was.  I made more than I thought I would.  It was crazy.  So I went back today and did more busking and again I made a fair bit.  Little less than yesterday, but still a good day.  I was given $5 by someone which is totally crazy and unexpected.  I played original stuff both yesterday and today.  I need to finish some other songs so I can have a variety of stuff to play since it's only originals I play.

If you see me on the corner of Broadway and 10th, stop by, throw some money in my guitar case.  It is greatly appreciated.

Tegan and Sara

I went to Tegan and Sara on the last night of the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Fest.  I took a chance on them and I'm glad I did.  They were nothing short of amazing.  They had great banter and funny.  They had a great set list.  The only songs I know by them are "Call It Off" and "Back In My Head."

I was never really into their music and only liked to two aforementioned songs.  But this concert totally changed my opinion of them.  I can officially call myself a fan of them.  It was just such a totally amazing concert.  I would go see them again in heartbeat.  The crowd was also amazing.  We got them to come out for one more song.  If the reaction of the crowd is any indication, I would say to bring them back for next years Jazz Fest if possible.  I would go see them for sure.

If you haven't seen them than I would suggest checking them out when they come close to you.  They are worth your money.  Who knows maybe they might be back in Saskatoon before next years Jazz Fest.  That would be bad ass if they were.
