I kind of had to post this Medicine Hat-based rap… by, none other than Kim Johnston? It’s pretty hilarious, in that, radio voice doesn’t translate so well to into a signing voice, especially in the chorus.

The spoofed song is Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind”, you know, for comparison sake.

There’s a lot of big names coming through Medicine Hat lately, is this a sign of our city growing up?

Either way, Three Days Grace with guests The Used will be playing at the Arena in just over a month’s time on November 28th, 2009 (7PM). Although I’m not a huge fan of Three Days Grace myself, but their newest video (shown below) is pretty sweet; albeit, a bit lame in some ways. They are also a hugely successful rock band with tons of radio hits. Their last released album, “Life Starts Now” sold more than 6 million worldwide which is a nice accomplishment for the Canadian rock band from Norwood, Ontario.

The Used on the other hand are an American post-hardcore (punk/rock/emo for the laymen) band that is touring to promote their newest album, “Artwork” which was released on August 31st, 2009. It’s quite odd for me listing The Used as a guest considering they are definitely the more popular band and have also achieved Gold and Platinum statuses in more than six countries worldwide. I also quite enjoy their music.

Tickets are $44.50 (floor) or $39.50 (seats) or, supposedly, you can get a VIP package for this event. What that means, I have no idea, but it will cost you $250.00 or $175.00. Call 403-502-8777 for more details on those.

Uh oh, is this another semi-positive article about a non-My96FM event? Sound the Kim Johnston alarms! I kid, I kid. Some people will know what I am talking about.

Tweeps is the word used to describe Twitter users and even though it sounds silly and a bit pretentious, it’s far better than saying “twitterers”. Either way, Twitter has become a truly invaluable tool in terms of media and social communication. Even if it is 75% useless personal comments or spam, that other 25% can inform you in ways other mediums can not (and will not). Based on who you follow, any single or general topic is available for your consumption – you can have this information instantly as the tweeps sends it out. Best of all, you can digest the full content easily because there is a limit of 140 characters, which plays a part in the mobile world, but also forces people to strictly write the most important things.

I previously did a post previously entitled “Medicine Hat Twitte’ers” in hopes to keep an up-to-date place to post Medicine Hat tweeps, but decided it would be too hard to upkeep. It’s far better to just take a gander at who Medicine Hat Media follows to get a complete list of active Medicine Hat tweeps. Hopefully nobody takes this post too seriously, it’s not like I am the Twitter expert or anything. Here is my pick for the best five Tweeps in Medicine Hat based on the below criteria and descriptions: THE JUMP – Read the rest of this entry »
