May 24, 2007: Throw Your Horns Up High!

Tons of kids wearing black and metal horns high. It's the VH1 Rock Honors baby, yeah! Right now, my iPod is filled with nothing but '80s music and metal. So naturally, the second annual Rock Honors was highly anticipated in the Steed household. Over the past week, I've closed my eyes to not read any reviews of the show by critics who've never gotten near a ZZ Top album. So what you read below is my opinion only. Hell, yeah!!! That phrase could describe many points during the night, so let's run it down from the beginning. I hate Nickelback! I think they are the absolute bottom of the barrel, the point at which all bad music is judged. The Mendoza Line of the music world. Naturally then, you can probably understand that when they opened this broadcast my horns slithered away.

Who put the "z" in Alexz and why? Is it one of those Canadian things I'll never understand, like metrics and poutine?Alexz Johnson: My mom and dad put the read more

2006 Winter Olympic Games: Opening...

2006 Winter Olympic Games: Opening CeremonyIt's a little ridiculous how excited I am that this night has arrived! There's something so magical and exciting about the Winter Olympics that I just can't explain. I can't believe it's already been four years since I was tearing up when little Sarah Hughes took the gold in Salt Lake City. But before the madness begins, it's the mother of all events: Opening Ceremony. During this extravagant four-hour affair, we were taken on a journey of passion, fire, ice and endless clichés. Not to mention the obvious push for a time of peace during the one moment when the entire world is united. It all kicked off with NBC's Brian Williams reminding us how "dicey" our world is now and that "sports can do what diplomats and p read more
