Do You Like the New Nike NFL Uniforms? (Gallery and Poll)

Below is a gallery of the new Nike NFL uniforms. Have a look and take the poll to tell people if you like them. You can also comment. Tell me what you think, and I’ll tell you what I think… if you care for what I think. ๐Ÿ™‚

This gallery is easier to view than the NFL site’s gallery because there are no frequent advertisements interrupting your viewing here, and the thumbnails are labeled and in order! Seriously, NFL.com, you can do much better than that!

Happy 70th Birthday Bob Dylan! (and my Top 10 Dylan Songs)

Bob Dylan

Happy 70th Birthday, Bob Dylan!

Ah, you were so much older then, you’re younger than that now… and may you stay forever young no matter how much the times, they are a’changin’, you rolling stone you!

Man, can you believe the Bob is 70???

I sure can’t… mostly because my main association with him is through his music, and that’s mostly timeless, never aging, so the icon seems that way to me.

For Bob’s 70th, Rolling Stone magazine did a huge number of features this month on him:

Me, I did a meme tribute on Facebook to share one of my favourite Top 10 Bob Dylan songs each day leading to his birthday today. Here is my list, which was generally presented in no particular order except for the last two being my favourite two Dylan songs. It gets too hard to separate the order of the others for me.

How You Like Me Now by the Heavy as My New Swagger Song

For the past handful of years, I’ve been exploring lots of new music and noting songs I’ve heard for the first time ever which I absolutely loved. At the end of the year, I share a CD’s worth of them (70 minutes max) with people.

This year will be the first year I will have had a blog all year where I could share these songs as I encounter them. Pending how many I come across, some songs may not make the final cut. However, I’m a little behind “schedule” for discovering new songs I love this year. So far, I can only count (Pham Quynh Anh) and (Jason Collett).

Today, though, my sister sent me a link to the Kia Sorrento commercial from the Super Bowl this year with one rockin’ song!

I’m a big NFL fan and I watched the Super Bowl, but they don’t show such commercials on the Canadian broadcasts.

It’s a great commercial, with the music contributing as much as anything else to why I loved it. Mind you, the sew on tattoo on the teddy bear was quite charming, too.

The music in the commercial was by a group called The Heavy, from England. Besides being one rockin’ song, though, I felt it also had a lot of swagger, which suits me just fine having just come back from New York City with a swagger in my gait.

Now there was a time
When you loved me so
I could have been wrong
But now you needed to know
See, I’ve been a bad, bad, bad, bad man
And I’m in deep, Yes I am
I found a brand new love for this man
And I can’t wait till you see
I can’t wait

So how you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now

How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now

Remember the time
When I eat you up
You know that I wasn’t lyin’
that you can’t give up
So if I was to cheat
on you baby would you see right through me
If I sing a sad, sad, sad, sad song
would you give it to me

How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now

How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now

Does that make you love me baby
Does that make you want me baby
Does that make you love me baby
Does that make you want me baby

How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now
How you like me now

I just love the beat and chorus. I’m not feeling angry or bitter or anything like the tone towards someone in the lyrics. I don’t think of anybody when I listen to it. Just the beat and chorus. But that’s the beauty of music. You can like it for anything you want.

I like the song so much, in fact, I’m making it my official new swagger song.

And it’s working so well that just after half a day with it in my head, I feel like I need a hip replacement already! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the intro, lil’sis! We do like some things in common after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

You can listen to more of the Heavy’s music on The Heavy’s MySpace page.
