TNT – more than a crossword puzzle witticism; something that make a huge blast; a real classic when performed by AC/DC.  Well, it’s Saturday night and we’re cranking up the TNT – it’s dynamite.


Go Angus.

Epic Guitar

The weather outside is crappy.  I’m totally saturated with Christmas carols and rude crowds.  I’ver got my shopping done – the packages all sent.  This day calls for something special – a little (actually a lot) epic guitar, by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen.

So, kick back.  Crank that amp up to about 1.21 gigawatts and see what happens at precisely 88 mph.  Epic.

Rockin’ In The Free World

It is pretty clear that God is a rocker.  So get righteous with us and jam.

Friday Flashback

Some Fridays we flashback to one of those stirring moments of yesteryear.  Today we are flashing on Serebro’s hit “Dirty Kiss”.  I know, I know.  This is from 2008 which some might argue isn’t very far back.  Be still oh neandrethal meathead.  This is the 21st century and in cyberspace four years is many generations of anything meaningful.  Besides, how can you not enjoy the energy and spunk of these ladies.

Dirty Kiss

Skip the first minute of this video.  Crank the volume up to about 11 and rock.  There is a lot of good music out there but for today we are rocking with Serebro.

Red Rubber Ball

The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball.  It’s Flashback Friday and we’re flashing back to the 60’s.  Do you remember a group called The Cyrkle?  They were a so called “frat rock” group – frats no longer rock this way you can be most assured.  The Cyrkle had two hits “Red Rubber Ball” and “Turn Down Day”.

Red Rubber Ball

This is a pleasant tune, from mellower times.  Maybe this is the “class” in classic rock.

Frat rock?  Aw jeez, food fight!

Run Thru The Jungle

It’s been one of those days.  Not bad.  I finished the tasks I needed to complete and made good progress on the others.  The coffee was hot and black and there was plenty of spicy, juicy meat.  But I keep hearing that classic “Run Through The Jungle” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.  Ah, those were the best of times — most of the time.  This just gives me a little extra motivation to add a few extra sets to this evenings workout.

Run Thru The Jungle

Winners never quit.

Winners Never Quit

See you in the jungle.


Hush my mouth.  It’s Sunday and if you’ve been around the School Of Hard Rocks for a while you know we usually enjoy some organ music on Sundays.  Organ music can be righteous and soothing.  John Lord is righteous any time he plays the organ.  Today John is playing the Deep Purple classic Hush which is righteous in and of itself.  So sit back, crank it up and hush – I’m getting mellow.

Hush – John Lord

Feel Good Friday

It’s Friday and I feel good.  Not just good but great.

The projects for this week are either done (and done is great) or at a necessary stopping point as I wait for someone else (NEVER be the cause for delay).  So now we celebrate.  A little rock, in fact a lot of rock.  Heat up those amps and shake some walls.

Feeling good is contageous.  So get out there and share.  Loudly.

In A Gadda Da Vida

Flower children of the world – stand up and make some noise.  Iron Butterfly is cranking In A Gadda Da Vida and things are groovy.  Well, almost.  We don’t wear bell bottoms any more and we trim our hair a bit shorter and we don’t stay our all night very often but we do still enjoy some righteous rock and even more righteous organ music.  Did you know the only musical instrument created in the 20th century was the steel Drum?  That has nothing to do with this song but the lights, man they are freaking me.
