In addition to watching the Thunder play the Spurs tonight, I was switching over to HDNET to watch a bit of Rocklahoma, the heavy metal concert held over Memorial Day weekend at Pryor. I guess this event has grown and grown and grown. And while I’ve never been much of a heavy metal girl (I can only now appreciate and/or tolerate listening to Led Zepplin), I was glued to the tube with Queensryche.
Fascinating to watch. And makes you realize a bit about the musicianship of these bands. Not my cup of tea, generally speaking, but I do love a live concert. My usual feeling is that I don’t care how bad a group is, they have more nerve than me to get up there and perform. But the guitarists were excellent. The drumming was fantastic. The front man was mesmerizing. They might have a new, least likely ever fan.
Which brings me to this: Is anyone planning to see this movie?
Rock of Ages with Tom Cruise. Now, I do love me some 80’s music, maybe even more so than the next person, but I also don’t want the p*ss taken out of it … not sure what I think of this movie or if I want to see it. And, I ask you, does this pic convince you that Tom Cruise is not gay? Nope, me neither. How about this one?
Gayest pic I have ever seen. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But again, Tom Cruise? As rock star? No No NoNONONONONO. Now what is really happening probably is that all these 80’s bands have used up their fortunes and need the residual check that the soundtrack is going to generate. Now that’s something I can believe in.
How about we get the fans at Rocklahoma to meet up with the people who go see Rock of Ages, and see what happens. Hmmmm.
Meanwhile, good on ya HDNET, that camera work was beautiful. Made me glad I was home in the a/c watching instead of in a hot Oklahoma field at Pryor Creek.
