Johnny Cash and Wolverine

I just saw the new trailer for Logan, in what will probably be the last movie about Wolverine with Hugh Jackman. The song used in it was Hurt, originally written and recorded by Nine Inch Nails, but covered by Johnny Cash. I had not heard either one but let’s just say I was immediately and fully captivated. The trailer was interesting, sure, but it was the song that made it what it was for me! PERFECT combination!

I LOVE musical moments like that in my life! If you haven’t heard and/or seen what I’m talking about, the trailer and full Johnny Cash cover of Hurt is below. Enjoy! And if you have, hell, enjoy it again!

p.s. I can’t wait for the movie, either! 😉

Johnny Manziel Goes to Least Exciting of Places in NFL Draft

The most talked about college football player in the NFL draft, Johnny Football (aka Manziel), ends up in Cleveland, of all places!

After slipping to #22 in the draft, he ends up in the most boring of all places in the league. It’s cold. The uniforms are brown. Who’s on the team?

If you believe in opposites attract and are good for each other, then perhaps nobody needs Johnny Football more than Cleveland. But if you believe in similar synergy, then Johnny is the worst fit for Cleveland. Personally, Cleveland was where I least wanted to see Johnny because I don’t think much is there for him to succeed with, from the weather to the team. Johnny will get his highlight reel plays in, sure. However, far fewer than if elsewhere, in my opinion. I think he’ll only shine with a second chance somewhere else, and hopes he does well enough to earn that second chance.

But like everyone else picked in the draft, we’ll only see with time.

Music I First Heard in 2014 – Muhammad Ali (Black Superman) by Johnny Wakelin and the Kinshasa Band

These posts are for music I first heard in 2014 which I love and want to share. This one is just super! Great story, great groove, great tune to sing to. I don’t know why it’s not more popular and frequently played! Great video, too!

I just LOVE it! I can even shadow box dance to it, lol!

There are other videos with just the music, and not video and audio clips of Ali but not as fun, in my opinion. That’s the stuff that inspired this song!
