Hello, my name is Belphoebe and I love Kid Rock.
This Waffle House brawler, Pam Anderson banger, beer guzzling rocker has been one of my guilty pleasures for the longest time.
(The other one is Eminen, but don't tell anyone.)
Kid's latest album, "Rock and Roll Jesus" opened at No. 1 on Billboard, so I decided to find out what the buzz was all about by going to Amazon.com and listening to the sample tracks.
(Gotta love sample tracks)
Holy cow! There is not one song that does not sound awesome!
Needless to say, I ordered the album, which it is presently being shipped to my abode as we speak . . .
While in that mode, my other music purchase this week was Bo Bice's sophomore album "See the Light." And while Kid Rock's was ordered after listening to the sample tracks, my purchase of Bo's CD was a leap of faith, as the sample tracks were not available yet when I ordered my copy.
You see, I absolutely fell in love with Bo's music since he was in American Idol. Then he had to go ahead and release his first album, "The Real Thing," which sucked rocks. Like any Bo fan, I was expecting a southern rock album and instead we got something suitable for the Backstreet Boys.
Leave it to the large record companies to screw up a true original.
But this one is absolutely fantastic. Bo parted ways with RCA and has released this album with an indie label, through Wal-Mart of all places.
What is it with rockers and the letter W? Waffle House? Wal-Mart? Do you see a trend here?
But I digress . . .
Although the album can be purchased only through Wal-Mart, the MP3 version is available for sale at Amazon.com. You can listen to the sample tracks here. You can tell me later if it is not awesome.
And of course, this other little gem should be arriving today at my humble abode. (Or so does Wal-Mart say.)
Last but not least, Mark Cuban was booted out from "Dancing with the Stars" last night.
Oh, Mark, you shall be missed. Although gifted by Destiny with two left feet, you were this year's beloved underdog and a great deal of fun to watch.
We will remember you as the keeper of the legacy of Jerry Springer and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Keep on truckin'.
