Dixie Chicks Get Rammed From Behind

Dixie Chicks Get Rammed From Behind
Sorry but I couldn’t resist as this is one of the funniest headlines I’ve seen. I’m not much of a fan but anybody who speaks out against the current Bush government in the political environment of this day and age gets my support. Plus my dad picks a mean country guitar!

Gone to the Cottage!

That’s right friends, I’m on vacation. My wife and son and I are off to a cottage we rented in Halliburton, Ontario for a week to soak up some rays and relax. No cell phone and no computer are the only rules so needless to say The Rock and Roll Report is on vacation to! I’ll be back posting on July 28th so in parting, don’t forget the immortal words of Mick, Keef and the boys “I know, it’s only rock and roll but I like it.” Yes I do.
Much later.

Site News

It’s been about 2 weeks since I started this blog and I am having a blast putting it together. I have had nothing but positive feedback from all 3 of my readers (thanks mom!) and I am already looking forward to moving it all up a notch.
In the next couple of months I want to move to some more sophisticated software. It has to support public comments, a searchable archives, e-mail notification of site updates and the ability to create posts in advance and automatically have the software upload them according to a schedule I create. So far I’m evaluating Radio Userland, Movable Type, Live Journal and Type Pad. In the more immediate future I will dive into the HTML code of my basic free Blogger site and at the very least reduce the size of the fonts and maybe change the typeface. In the distant future will be a move to www.rockandrollreport.com, which I now own (don’t click on it now, nothing to see, move along). The search is also on for a used “Flower Power” iMac Special Edition. Why? Because it looks cool! Any and all comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Sharon!

So Sharon Osbourne is coming out with a daytime TV chat show this fall. Good for her. I think she is pretty cool considering that she hasn’t killed Ozzy yet (although he has tried to kill her!) and she manages Ozzfest (Have you ever seen some of those bands? They scare the crap out of me!). Hell, she saved Ozzy’s career and I like Ozzy so she deserves to join the ranks of the Oprahs and the Maurys and hopefully she’ll keep the rock and roll attitude. If my mom starts watching, the apocalypse must be right around the corner.

Duck Dodgers Returns!

According to this article on Canoe, Duke Dodgers is coming back! Does this have anything to do with Rock and Roll? No. Why am I posting this? Because this is seriously cool. Duck Dodgers has attitude like any true rock and roller and many rock stars like Marvin the Martian. Or so I am told. Ok so I like cartoons. Have a great weekend.

Travel in Style the Rock and Roll Way

Ever wanted to see the Sacred Music Festival in Fez, Morocco and have your own Brian Jones revelation? Or check out the Iguanas in Cuba? Springsteen at Fenway Park? All this is possible with a very cool little company operating out of Boston called Adventures in Rock. These are not your regular bus tours to see Molly Hatchet at the Backwoods State Fair. These are first class, luxurious trips to great concerts and incredibly exotic festivals around the world and from what I can tell their reputation is stellar. If you ever wanted to sip Perrier with Sting in the V.I.P. tent backstage, these are the people who will give you the best shot at making it happen! Sign up for their newsletter and start saving! Catch you in Rio.

CANADA DAY July 1st

CANADA DAY July 1st
As tomorrow is Canada Day, I urge everyone to visit www.maplemusic.com and buy something from their incredible roster of bands. I can recommend the new Sam Roberts or Gord Downie CDs and I personally plan on picking up the new 5440 CD “Goodbye Flatlands.”
Have a great Canada Day wherever you are!
