Stranded’s Awesome: Smell Me

This post is legend…wait for it…dairy.   I have said it before and will say it again…without the writers and NPH, How I Met Your Mother is a horrible sitcom. Perhaps we will just let Barney tell you in his own blog… …part of what makes Barney so awesome is how they have created a website for each of those …

Stranded’s Awesome: Toto…not the one from Kansas

Singing in the above vid is Joseph…son of John Williams (think Star Wars/Superman/Indiana Jones)…and yes, that is Paula Abdul dancing. That was from their alleged farewell concert… …well, all great tunes, but there is always the classic…

Stranded’s Awesome: The Retro of Duncan Sheik

In a bit of an 80s mood tonight…then again, when it comes to music, when am I not in an 80s mood?  In fact, I’m in such a retro frame of mind tonight, I figured that I’d even drag back out the old “Awesome” posts that I have not added to since last summer. I have a picture…pinned to my …

Stranded’s Awesome: American Bands

Heard someone talking about the Spice Girls at the Olympic closing ceremonies and how they looked so good that whether they were lip synching or not didn’t matter.  My mind immediately went to the response of:  Dude (yes, I thought the word “Dude”)…sorry, start over…Dude, my favourite band is Rush.  Do you really think eye candy in music matters to …

Stranded’s Awesome: Under Cover Tunes

No…not talking bed linens this week…though that might be something to consider with the right volunteer assistant for a future post… I was listening to the radio yesterday during my trek into the city of Toronto and at one point the talking heads took up the subject of all the recent remake of old Arnie Schwarzenegger films and how generally bad …

Stranded’s Awesome: The Movie Marathon

What a night at the theatre…well, afternoon, anyway.  Was at a film this afternoon that has me rethinking my favourite set of films.  In fact, as I write this, I have my account on IMDB open and looking at my ratings. So this week, I proudly give you six film selections…two are actually a series of films, so technically we …

Stranded’s Awesome: Yoda

Seems I have a cold and have been falling into a drunken stupor without the addition of anything beyond Nyquil the last few evenings. As such, forgive me…but I will be back.  I had a wonderful story for yesterday’s/today’s Wicked Wednesday prompt, but just did not have the energy. I did have someone suggesting using my erection as an all-day …

Stranded’s Awesome: Canucks in Music

This week’s “Awesome” post will be my favourite home grown artists that I have listened to over my 40-something years…and, of course, number one is pretty obvious.  Just shut up and play along, okay…don’t make me get out the flogger.  For the record (pun intended) I think fourth will surprise most who know me. Before I get into this, an …
