Hey guys and gals! One more post and then I’m off to Calgary! I just got off the phone with Kevin Eastman, one of the driving forces behind The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!!! 6 yr old Skip would be crapping his pants if he knew he’d be talking to one of the dudes that brought to life one of his favorite things in the world. Anyways, enjoy the interview and I’ll see you at the Expo!
This weekend is the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo and I’m fortunate enough to be attending! I recently did a pre-expo interview with Rob Paulson, the man of many voices. This guy has been voice acting for so long, I guarantee you’ve heard some of his body of work. He was Raphael in the original TMNT cartoon, Pinky from Pinky and the Brain, Carl from Jimmy Neutron, and so many more! Just listen to the interview!
It is officially on like Donkey Kong!
Barry, the driver of Western Renegade called the morning show today and said his Western Renegade rig is ready to run havoc all over Bigfoot in the Crystal Centre this weekend for the Monster Truck Throwdown.
Barry also said this is the first ever show like this in GP and will include 1400hp drag races, donut and wheely competitions along with high flying motocross.
It’s an all ages show and there will also be a pre-pit party where the kids can get stuff signed and meet the drivers!
Ok, maybe not the best day for that, but it will definitely be wet today.
Environment Canada says that up to 70mm or rain could fall in the GP, Beaverlodge, Valleyview and Grande Cache areas. Some of us may get hit with rain mixed with SNOW depending on how cool the temp gets.
The concern is that spring melt with lots of rain could cause some flooding. Check your sump pumps today, and take caution on area Highways.
Suck on THIS.
Off Track Motorsports is setting you up with a Hisun Sports UTV side-by-side! TC Equipment is throwing in an Echo chain saw, McGoverns RV & Marine is providing matching a Keith Libberg wakeboard and boots and Aurora Eye Care is giving two pairs of designer sunglasses!
Kevin and I have a MASSIVE SUMMER CONTEST announcement this morning just after 7… you’re going to want to make out with us after we tell you what you can win if you’re a ROCKSTAR VIP (sign up now if you want to not die)
So we have that for you, but have a couple of questions:
1. Can you take jeans in? Kevin’s are too big in the waist but needs them bigger for thighs…(I really want to keep making fun of him for this but I should be more sensitive)
2. When did Easter presents become a thing? On top of chocolate which has gone crazy, kids are now getting trampolines and quads? Yikes. Does this alarm you?
You wouldn’t think this, but Zakk Wylde is celebrating right now because he has his first number one album after “Catacombs of the Black Vatican,” debuted on top of the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart.
The album sold 26,00 copies its first week of release and that’s been helped by the first single “My Dying Time”
If you remember Black Label Society at the EnCana Events Centre, Zakk Wylde was an absolute treat to watch and he is definitely one of the top in the world at what he does.
This is the new single, and you will love it.
From all accounts the Black Sabbath show was INCREDIBLE in Calgary last night. That may or may have a lot to do with the fact it was 4/20 but who’s to say.
We know Ozzy is having fun ““I’m just having a blast,” “There’s not many people of my age who started 45 years ago, that are still doing what we do. Sometimes I have to nearly pinch myself, ‘Is this really happening?’ It’s just really unbelievable.”
If you’re fortunate enough to be in Edmonton tomorrow night for the Sabbath show, we would love to hear about how it went, and maybe you could even email Kevin and I a picture! Travel safe and have a wicked time.
Pop Evil has put out their latest video for “Torn To Pieces”. It’s a touching video that focuses on the loss of frontman Leigh Kakaty’s father.
