Hump Day Poll
 



Sadly our Chiefs were handed their first loss of the season against the Broncos BUT I don't think anyone out there figured us to be 9 and 1.

That being said, what do you think the final Win - Loss standings will be when the season is over?
Remember, they play a total of 16 games!


The results were all over the place!  Anywhere from 13-3 to 9-7!

NEW MUSIC TA-TA-TADAY JR!
It’s looking like today is another one of those “Best Of” New Music Tuesday’s! Who all has “Best Of’s” out, great question let’s dive into it; NICKELBACK Those loveable, punchlineable, lads from Canada have a Best Of today. So does DAVID LEE ROTH! DLR’s probably looking to pad the wallet with the royalties he gets from VAN HALEN. A PERFECT CIRLCE has out “Three Sixty” greatest hits with a new song, the first in a decade, “By and Down”.  Not so much a “Best Of” but a full concert which typically means there’s a slew of hits played, RUSH has out “Clockwork Angels Tour” on CD, DVD & Blu-Ray.

Undoubtedly you all know FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has dropped Vol. 2 of “The Wrong Side of Heaven & the Righteous Side of Hell”. “Battle Born” has been doing well on the charts from that album, sitting strong as of this week at number 5.

There’s been something of a cult following for the Swedish occult rockers GHOST and today they’re putting out a, DAVE GROHL produced, covers EP “If You Have Ghost”. With songs by ROKY ERICKSON, ABBA, ARMY OF LOVERS, & DEPECHE MODE I can only imagine how this’ll sound.

Speaking of APC, as mentioned above, they’ve got a live work coming out “A Perfect Circle: Live featuring Stone & Echo” on the 26th BUT is streaming, in its entirety, here;  http://consequenceofsound.net/2013/11/stream-a-perfect-circles-new-live-album-stone-and-echo/
