Oh thank goodness it's snowing again. I was REALLY starting to get concerned that the ground would actually thaw out and start turning green. PHHHHHEWWWWW. Glad we don't have to worry about that just yet. Alright, it's Friday. You look like you could use some mindless Friday/weekend entertainment......with that, it is the Weekly Web Collective. The finest collection of web garbage from the past week.
Let's start this week with the best thing I've seen on the interwebs in awhile. It's probably not from "this" week, but I haven't posted it yet so I'm usin it. The Hangover was borderline legendary. Hangover 2 was largely terrible cuz it's was just the first flick to a "T". However, they went back to the drawing board, FO SHO, for The Hangover 3. This looks awesomesauce!
The Foo Fighters inducted Rush into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. They also performed the Rush song "2112 Overture"......performed it as some other trio.....solid......
Alright, moment of seriousness. Found this touching message from a group of wounded Vets to the victims of the Boston Explosions. It's pretty cool, kinda serves as "One Piece Of Good News" embedded in the Weekly Web Collective.
This is one of my favorite tweets ever.......click ANY of the below tweets for their deets.
They got a MONKEY! Click the tweet to see the pic!
There isn't much on Earth more pure than the Kentucky Derby. It's Americana and those ponies are NOT abused, they are absolute jaw dropping athletes! In case ya care, I'll take the $6 Revolutionary-Itsmyluckyday-Orb trifecta
Thanks Mary! You're so on top of things! Love it when ya share your music passion! Click the tweet for the details on Johnny's new album.
Quality Covers.......I wrap the Weekly Web Collective with a "Quality Cover". I love covers......WHEN done well. Crappy covers for the sake of doing some cover to get yourself attention or for the sake of filling up an album are NOT my idea of a quality cover. When a band truly digs in and crafts a cover of a song that's true to the original, yet represents themselves well also. Sometimes a great cover is just in the moment and fun, like this. Grace Potter & The Nocturnals will be a part of Basilica Block Party on July 12th. They did this cover back on January 25th at First Ave. I LOVED it.
