Exploding Your Ears

I was about to write a crazy post about some new stuff happening in my life.. until my facebook homepage was invaded with multiple friends sharing the same link over and over. When something like that occurs, all you can do is click on it.

My brother Sam and a few of his good buddies have been making music for years. It's what they love to do. One day when I got home from a run (see, this blog's about running too) Sammy came up to me and asked what my opinion on 'Baers' is for a band name.
"Bears, bears, how do you spell it?"
"B-A-E-R-S. Baers. Or should it have a 'Z' at the end instead of an 'S'?"
"No. Baers is good. Keep the 'S'."

Days, weeks, months down the road this music has been playing every time I see Sam. After posting songs on his blog, facebook, and twitter, Baers was finally recognized on http://www.earmilk.com/ in an article today saying that they're "almost as underground as you can imagine". I'll quote the article again with "I've never heard of the Baers before and boy have I been missing out."

Check out these mix masters.

If you're interested, there's a few more songs here that I couldn't embed. They're different, and definitely worth a look. http://soundcloud.com/baers

I wish I was a little bit taller

As you can see, a lot of my posts have songs linked from youtube that I like. Unless you're blind, then in that case you probly can't see the songs. I mean, you're probly not chillin' on the computer surfing the internet if you're blind. Just sayin'.

It's my blog so I'm gonna do whatever I want, if y'all have a problem please let me know. If not, I hope you enjoy the music that I put here.

I know this is supposed to be more of a running blog too, so I'll start by saying that training is going well. My first cross country meet is at Mooney's Bay next Friday, so watch for the kid in the purple and gold*. If you're not there to watch, I should have a recap apr├Ęs la race.

*although this is also one of my school colours, it will also be the colour of the medal I'll be wearing later that day. Get on my level.

One big issue some runners seem to face is height (or lack there of). Imagine if I was like.. 3 inches taller. Imagine how much of a difference it would make when I run. Imagine the length of my stride. I know my brother (http://www.iandonald.blogspot.com/) had the same problem as me and was always towered over by 6-foot tall men with extraordinary kicks.

I wish..

Something About Reese's

My lack of blog posting over the summer only makes me more excited to blog this month. So don't chirp. School's starting.. blah blah blah yea it happens every year. I have better things to talk about.

So check this out.

Ya know that Reese Peanut Butter Cup commercial where the two cups come together and start turning like gears? It's nice. Here it is.
The song playing in the background is a great song. This great song just so happens to be on my ipod. Since it's on my ipod I happen to listen to it quite often. Since I listen to it quite often I happen to know that it's a song about love. When two people come together and work well they can form something beautiful.

Like when chocolate and peanut butter come together. I've always loved Reese's, it was something I grew up with. At the store or on Halloween, Reese's was always there for me. That's why I think this commercial should be longer than it already is, and maybe incorporate some of the song's lyrics into it to truly display the love that is made when chocolate and peanut butter mix.

Here's the song.
Just a little somethin that was on my mind.
