Yes I’ve been counting down days until the start of the NHL season… we’re at 7. This time next week, you’ll be enjoying NHL action (regular season)
If you’re a Rogers wireless data customer you’ll want to sign up for Gamecenter live FREE until the end of December. If not, check out the great price on GameCenter live which will bring you HUNDREDS of games this season.
I think we need one of these. Would probably go over well during our Friday Night Hockey events at Revolution Place during Storm Games. (next one is this Friday btw, tickets available now)
Have you ever won anything out of a cannon? I managed to get a t-shirt a couple years ago at a Raptors game, despite the kids behind me REALLY wanting it. What, it was an XL, I needed it more than them.
Did anyone else watch Corner Gas? Or is this just a Saskatchewan thing.. I lived 45 minutes away from Rouleau, SK. I used to drive past the set all the time and I was kind of shocked to see that the ‘Foo Mar T’ burnt down yesterday afternoon. Read more at CTV NEWS here.
Yup, today is International Coffee Day… a celebration that will likely consist of, well, another cup of the same ol’ joe.
After all, we’ve been relying (and enjoying) the black gold since 1668 in North America (first writted record of coffee in NA)
In Canada we slurp 14 billion cups of coffee a year, and coffee is the #1 beverage sold in Canada accounting for 16% of all non alcoholic beverages (with kids out of the mix, those numbers are staggering)
Not to mention jobs as well, as we know here in the Peace Country…. stats also showing we enjoy 3.5 cups a week at cafes and restaurants across the country, weekly.
Enjoy your black, cream… sugar, sweetener, whatever ya like today.
Dave says Bonham was the best drummer of all time, so we believe him (already did) but here’s a fun rundown of Dave’s top 10 ‘bonzo’ songs:
1. Achilles’ Last Stand
“This song has some fireworks, and it’s a good example of Bonham’s reckless side. You can tell he’s taking chances as the tape rolls. There’s an amazing kick-drum pattern that propels the track. And there’s one fill right after the first verse that just doesn’t sound humanly possible.”
Physical Graffiti, 1975
3. When The Levee Breaks
4. Immigrant Song
How The West Was Won, 2003
“This live version just comes right out of the gate. You know that people’s jaws would have dropped. Bonham is really pushing it. He’s either drunk as hell or he’s just having the time of his life.”
This year marks the first annual Zombie Run to take place in Grande Prairie. It’s a 5km run but not only that you have to try and stay alive as well. It’s happening October 4th over at GPRC @ 11am. Which the cost to participate is that Human Runners are $50, Zombie Chasers $40 and Zombie Walkers $30. You can get more details here.
The After Dark event is happening tonight. If you didn’t hear special guests earlier this week with Kevin and myself, it’s an event part of the Conspiracy of Hope project. Which plans to bring awareness to and prevention of Suicide.
Everything is happening at Revolution Place… there will be presentations, speakers, live music from local groups and others who have travelled (including Trevor Hurst from Econoline Crush)
Also a project that Suzanne Sagmeister has headed up will be unveiled… she’s been taking pictures of suicide survivors and it promises to be very touching and emotional.
We’re talking about art today on the morning show, specifically ugly pieces you own and display in your house. I noticed at the station here we have a shameful wall of wildlife… 3 old, faded pictures of polar bears, moose, and a cougar. I’ve posted a video on our Facebook page for those who haven’t had the priviledge of seeing that beautiful display.
What is the ugliest, or most random piece of art you have? Do you like it because it’s so cheesey? We’d love to hear about it, and even see it. Fire us off some pics (you can now attach pics on our fb page under comments, but can always email firstname.lastname@example.org) our studio number is 780 539 9797
Question of today is: Is throwing away an apple core, or banana peel, or something else that is considered biodegradeable, littering? To my knowledge, we’ve all done it. I know I have… and the thinking is maybe the birds will get it, or it’s actually good for the environment.
What’s your opinion? according to our Facebook fans, the consensus seems to be an overwhelming ‘no’
Thanks for always helping us solve the unsolvable!
