Video Du Jour: Scott Weiland

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , on November 28, 2011 by 30daysout

A lot of people are diggin’ Scott Weiland’s new Christmas album, The Most Wonderful Time of Year, while many others are just saying “WTF?” Weiland has put out a video of one song, “Winter Wonderland” where he sports a Hitler Youth haircut (really, that’s what it’s called) and generally acts kind of tranquilized for about two and a half minutes.

For those who thought Bob Dylan’s Christmas album and video two years ago was weird, you’ll dig this …

Checkin’ In For Christmas

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2011 by 30daysout

Seems almost impossible that it’s already the Christmas season … I could’a sworn July was last week or something. You know time flies when you’re having fun, or not. And so this is Christmas.

This season, we’re gonna do the usual things we do – post blogs with a ton of Christmas music, review the best and worst of 2011 and generally bitch about the state of the world in which we’re livin.’ That’s how we roll, and we certainly appreciate you taking a little time to come and visit while we do that.

As I write this the windows are open and all down my street the neighbors are installing their blinking Christmas lights, their oversized inflatable Santa lawn snow globes and elaborate wrappings around the trees. Most annoying, just across the street somebody has plinky holiday music playing from some contraption in their front yard. Greeeeeaaaaaaaat.

And I went to the grocery store to buy some milk and beer for the weekend, then I stood in line for a while behind people purchasing giant TVs and strange electronic consoles (at the grocery store!). Don’t get me wrong – we certainly participated in Black Friday but we didn’t pepper spray anyone (although my wife made me wish I had some handy). Later on comes the hassle of erecting a tree, and negotiating which visits we must make to family members who wouldn’t care drive out to see us at any time of the year.

But each year we all manage to dig out at least a little bit of the true meaning of Christmas. We all manage to spend a small amount of time with the people we love or care about, and we show a little shred of love by sharing some of ourselves at a truly magical time of year. Or I hope we do – like I hope you do as well. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! So let the season begin …

Bonus Video of the Week: Carlos Santana

Carlos Santana’s new album is Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time. It’s a collection of covers of some of the most famous and familiar rock songs of the past three decades, sung by a roster of guest vocalists.  The first few spins sounded pretty good to me, after that it got to be kinda “meh.”  Guests Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Jakoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) and others take turns on songs like “Whole Lotta Love,” “Sunshine Of Your Love” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.”

Here’s a promo video that gives you a flavor of what the album’s like:
