Updating you on our plans for this week; thoughts on Weird Al’s newest video
Starting today, on Mondays, I will give a brief rundown of what readers can expect from us in the coming week. So, if you’re a returning visitor, firstly thank you, and secondly, you can have a good idea of what some of the cool stuff we’ve got planned.
Plans notoriously change without warning sometimes, and I make no promises that we’ll always meet our plans, but we will work to make sure to the best of our ability that we deliver what we say we will.
So with that, this week expect a big push in what’s going on at White Sulphur Springs this weekend at the 2014 Red Ants Pants Music Festival.
We’ll have interviews with artists and organizers, photos, sound clips and more. While it’s happening we’ll have live Tweets and photos, too, hopefully.
Also, look for some info on the new exhibit that opened at the C.M. Russell Museum titled “The Yellowstone Suite: Thomas Moran’s Vision of the West,” and some early looks at the Montana State Fair, although most of that will come next week.
Finally, I’ve got another Indie Spotlight, this week with the talented Ms. Sarah Frazier from Helena. We were scheduled to talk last week but our wires got crossed, so we will be chatting this week. She just performed at the Zephyr Fair at Machinery Row and has several other shows around the state planned, as well. So, look for that.
Lastly, I had to share this video from Weird Al titled “Mission Statement.”
It mocks, brilliantly, I might add, corporate double speak and jargon that at the end of the day, doesn’t really mean much.
It’s set to Crosby, Stills and Nash’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” and the video is done in a cool handmade whiteboard drawing style, much like those UPS commercials from a few years ago.
Anyhow, if you have not yet seen it, check it out. I think the spirit behind the song speaks to a lot of what we’re trying to do here at Big Sky State Buzz and how we’re not going to be part of the silly corporate structure and/or needless games that you’re forced to play if you want to get ahead.
So apparently, the Wall Street Journal has exclusive access to the video rights until tomorrow, but you can listen to the song below, and click on the link if you’d like to watch the video.
Hope you all have a great week and keep checking back for more content in the days to come. 🙂
