Deep Purple Canadian Tour Dates 2012!!!!

FINALLY a frickin ROCK show is coming to Halifax...to the Halifax Metro Centre...ladies and gentlemen...wormslime of all ages...frickin DEEP PURPLE is FINALLY booked to play Halifax...
Old Man Robb remembers around 1984 when Deep Purple reformed..however his first real Purple listening experience was borrowing his old pal Jason's "24 Carot Purple" album...yes kiddies i know i know..VINYL...that he had bought at Tracks and Paperbacks in Dartmouth...now how many of you rememember Tracks and Paperbacks and whatever happened to them?!?!?!? Ol Jay's record was kinda scratched up but what can you expect for being bought in the 99 cent section?!?!?!

Yes after listening and well thinking the band was pretty happening Old Man Robb remembers recieving "Perfect Strangers" for Christmas that year along with Helix, Ratt and Twisted Sister and well i think it was a cassette that was worn out by Old Man Robb...then realizing that Ian Gillan dude was the same dude that was in Sabbath the year before for the awesome Born Again album...i always heard that Gillan threw up when he saw the infamous baby devil cover of the Born Again album...and so Mr Ian Gillan finally comes to Halifax just like he should have back in 83 with the Sabs...i heard the story about the Stonehenge stage and about how it was too big for the Metro Centre and how it inspired the same story in "This is Spinal Tap"

Anywho come Saturday Old Man Robb shall be purchasing his Deep Purple tickets...can't wait..even the Newfys get to see themselves some Deep Purple...i kinda like that collage im posting below... ever wonder about all the Deep Purple/ Black Sabbath/ Dio/ Rainbow/ Whitesnake connections? Weird isn't it? Blackmore and Glover in Rainbow, Dio in Rainbow and Sabbath/ Gillan takes over for Dio with Sabbath/ Paice and Lord play with Coverndale in Whitesnake...Cozy Powell played with Sabbath/ Rainbow/ Whitesnake...it could go on and on and on....

Spam Burgers Recipie

Believe it or not webslingers i used to make these things while i was teaching in South Korea...now now you might or might not believe Old Man Robb on this one...but Spam in S Korea is popular with rice and well i remember going into the supermarker in Pyeongtaek where i lived and there it could be bought as a gift set..a luxury item..i had the parents of one of my students present me with a Spam gift basket..Spam outranks many other North American imports in S Korea  It all started whenSpam was introduced to Korea during the Korean War (1950-1953) by American soldiers that were serving over there ...the Korean War had created wide-spread hunger and military importation of food items like Spam was a great relief to the Korean people and Spam was a popular food item in S Korea just took off from there..... in places like Hawaii you can get Spam for breakfast in places like Burger King and Raunchy Ron's... in Hawaii it is referred to as "Hawaiian Steak"...that is the popularity of Spam in Hawaii...crazyness eh?

Anywho...here is the recipie for Spam Burgers...

  • 1 (12 ounce) container SPAM
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs
  • 4 ounces Cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 6 hamburger buns
  •             Preheat your oven's broiler.                                  
  • Combine the lunch meat, eggs, cheese and onion in a food processor, or run them through a grinder.
  • Once everything is minced, stir in enough of the mayonnaise to hold it together.
  • Spoon equal amounts of the mixture onto open buns, and place two pieces of bacon on top of each one.               
  • Broil a few inches from the heat for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp.

Robb's Hangover Cure

When Tylenol just doesn't cut it for ya then the best cure for a hangover is good ol McDonalds . Curing a hangover at McDonalds is the best kind of McDonalds (a close second is drunk McDonalds, but if you’re reading this you probably already know that). Do your absolute best to wake up before they stop serving those delicious breakfast sandwiches. Have an Egg McMuffin...however you might wanna stay away from the McGridle...

Ignore your queasy stomach; what it really wants is the greasiest-most-carbtastic meal on the menu. There’s little to no work on your part — this grease bomb will ease your suffering. It covers the carbs and protein needed to clear your head and get back to work.

...all the salt and stuff...However i must ask...Is it the grease that makes the hangover disappear? Oh nevermind and just trust me on this one, it really does work.

Whatever happened to ol Uncle O'Grimacey anyways?

The Loney Bowl- Acadia Vs SMU...

I haven't had much to say lately...dammit that is not like Old Man Robb eh? Anywho i've been keeping quiet on one of my favorite subjects- Acadia Axemen Football..why? Well i have not been wanting to jinx things for the Axemen by me babbling and babbling on and on aboot them...however it is like Christmas this coming Saturday..the Axemen are hosting SMU in the Loney Bowl...no no not SMU hosting us or STFX or whatever...us hosting them...

Yes folks this is big news...to Old Man Robb

The Axemen are coming off their best season since 1986-87 where they also went 7-1...SMU is chasing their fifth straight AUS Football Championship and would love to spoil the party by doing it at Raymond Field on Saturday...

Need i remind everyone that the home team is 9-0 in the title game...that is a long streak... i want to see the Axemen keep that streak going...they need to get rid of this mindset of we can't beat SMU..that is nonsense..we can beat SMU...we lost one game this season and it was to SMU but guess what..we also just SMU just two short weeks ago and that has to be a confidence builder right then and there...

It is our time...our game and now is the chance to put SMU's Loney Bowl streak to an end...

"Stand up and cheer
Stand up and cheer for old Acadia!
For today, we raise...The red and blue above the rest,
Our teams are fighting, and they're out to win the fray
We've got the steam! BOOM BOOM!
We've got the team! BOOM BOOM!
For this is old Acadia's day!"

Ataris- You Need a Hug

maybe you should work for "sick of it all"
or get a job with the l.a.p.d.
did someone switch your ritalin with ephedrine?
Just don't take your fucking problems out on me.

I'd buy you a little fuzzy bunny
I'd put you on my x-mas card list
if you'd promise not to take your job so seriously
and realize you don't have to be so pissed.

life ain't all that bad. life ain't all that bad.
even if henry rollins is your dad.
life ain't all that bad. life ain't all that bad.
buck up little camper, don't be sad.

maybe you could go hunting with ted nugent
and see how many animals you could kill.
I'd pay all of my friends just to hang out with you
and take you out to sizzler for a meal.

I'd take you to my favorite karoke bar
and you sing "let the sunshine in".
you could stomp my ass into oblivion
but that doesn't mean I'll put up with your shit.
