I wasn’t born, I spawned. Floyd is Irish for ”Only Child”. My first and only marriage was when I was 5-years-old to my pre-school sweetheart… we got a fake divorce and she now has a real husband. One day, decided I was going to chase down a life long dream, becoming a River Boat Gambler and making my own beef jerky, when that failed, I became a Radio Jock. “Strip Club Management” wasn’t available. That said, I may have taken Radio Broadcasting but I distinctly remember there being strippers. Rock & Roll and long weekends are right in my wheelhouse. In the summer you can typically find me, shirt off, in flip flops, on a beach or dock. I dig the Leafs, Jays, Raptors and of course the North Bay Battalion who I work Public Address for (One Minute Till Ceasefire)… 2014 Eastern Conference Champs!!! Sometimes, I make words sound sexy. If you see me buy me a drink… I like that!
Anyone can play clubs, bars, stadiums and arenas but try Rocking a North Bay sidewalk when it’s 35 below! Alain Bradette played a little Lyin’ Eyes by the Eagles for us earlier today, despite the frigid temps.
This guy is a TRUE rock star!
You know how some people get Married and agree to sign a prenuptial agreement? Tim Horton’s has sort of done the same with it’s “Roll Up” campaign. Tim’s has FINALLY put an end to the dispute over who wins the prize! For instance, it’s your turn to brave the -45 degree weather and crappy road conditions here in North Bay; you come back to the office with coffees and someone wins a Prepaid Visa card. Even though you went out to purchase the coffee’s, the person who rolled up was actually the one who paid money for the cup. Soooo who gets the Visa?!! A similar case happened in Quebec a few years back. A 10-year-old girl found a cup in the trash but couldn’t roll it up so she got her 12-year-old friend to help and it turned out to be a car. The mother of the girl who rolled up the rim said she was entitled to the vehicle although the courts disagreed and ended up giving the car to the 10-year-old who found the cup. Tim Horton’s is saying that in NO WAY is this “pre-cup-tual” agreement legally binding. You can check it out HERE.
It happens every summer… a competition to see who can put together the BIGGEST concert festival. It looks like Montebello, Quebec is winning the race thus far. Amnesia Rockfest hits Canada June 18 – 21 with some pretty BIG names. The Offspring, System of a Down, Linkin Park, The Pixies, Sublime with Rome, Rob Zombie, Slayer, and Tenacious D are just a few of the many bands who will rock Quebec the first weekend of summer. Tickets are on sale NOW. Check out the full lineup and details HERE.
Super Bowl XLIX or… “49” may have just wrapped up but the hype is still ongoing. Even though it may have been the most amazing game/craziest finish of all time, most of the buzz was about the half time show. Due to an unsynchronized, “do whatever I want” dance routine, “Left Shark” became a household name overnight. So, how do you top the most buzzworthy Super Bowl halftime since Justin Timberlake “accidentally” ripped Janet Jacksons top off back in 2003? METALLICA!!! THAT’S HOW.
Clearly, I made a deal with the devil yesterday when I challenged Fox Nation to “Like” a Facebook post in exchange for eating my least favourite food in the world. The bet was, 500 LIKES and I’d eat an entire plate of the worst thing you could possibly put in your mouth, otherwise known as cauliflower.
675 “likes” later, THIS was the result!
My favourite part comes around the 3:10 mark when my General Manager heckles me!
It’s no secret the internet can be a horrible place and the people on it are not afraid to speak their mind. Constantly living life in the spotlight can be draining at times, meaning you have to have a think skin. Celebrities took the time on Jimmy Kimmel Live to have some fun at their own expense and address some mean tweets.
Here’s the latest Mean Tweets: Music Edition #2
The Foo Fighters have turned their live shows into one massive party as of late. Almost like seeing a cover band at your local pub, only… it’s the FREAKING FOO FIGHTERS!!! Some of their recent covers include, KISS’s Detroit Rock City and Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie. The Foo Fighters have even mixed in a little Cancon recently, covering theStampeders Sweet City Woman. BUT the Foo really made Canada proud at a recent show in Brazil when they covered Rush’s Tom Sawyer. BADASS!!!
