RESOLUTION OR NOT? I think making a New Year's resolution is ridiculous. The only one I ever stuck with was about six or seven years ago when YUKON JACK and I resolved to take up "Pipe Smoking." I kept with it for about six months or so, and Yuke was stokin' for about a year. It was funny, and we liked the smell, but the health concerns may have been an issue. The point is if you make a New Year's resolution, why the hell wouldn't you make it something fun and achievable; don't set silly goals that you don't actually want to follow through on. What's your 2013 New Year's resolution? BTW, the sleek, sexy, new 2013 Bear Babes calendars are still available at your local Mac's convenience store too, they're only 10 bucks with proceeds going to The Bear Children's Fund. You can also help out the BCF by buying one of our 20th birthday "Calgary Sucks" t-shirts for $19.99 at http://DejaVuClothing.ca in West Edmonton Mall.
UFC AT KNOXVILLE'S ... Last night in Las Vegas, it was UFC 155 Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2! The Bear's Music Director, Lochlin Cross, was hangin' out at Knoxville's Tavern drinking beers and giving away some kick-ass prizes as Cain Velasquez reclaimed his heavyweight title from junior Dos Santos in a unanimous decision. Listen to The Bear daily to win cash for www.Knoxvilles.ca and get all your UFC info at www.UFC.ca
NEW MUSIC THIS WEEK ... In stores and on iTunes / Amazon / etc. this Tuesday (New Year's Day): DAEMONICUS - "Deadwork," HELLECTRICITY - "Salem Blood," MASTERS Of REALITY - "Masters Of Reality," MR. DAY - "Dry Up In The Sun," PEEPHOLES - "The Overspill," and the usual onslaught of holiday re-issues.
