Marbles

Big Red’s Latest OBSESSION… Marble Racing! {WATCH}

Something that I have learned during this crazy time in the world is you have to appreciate the small things in life. Sometimes when you are stuck at home either by yourself, with your family, or with your significant other you have to find things to keep you occupied, and most of the time, that includes going through the black hole that is, YOUTUBE.

About a month ago I turned on YouTube on my television and something popped up, it was the “MarbleLympics” along with Marble Racing. This is a YouTube channel with millions and millions of views dedicated towards the art of marble racing. Between the actual race set-up, to the commentators, to the stadium filled with marbles. It has been one of the most fascinating things I have discovered during quarantine.

The Channel is called “Jelle’s Marble Runs”, they have a season long series of races, qualifying stages, they even put on a MarbleLympics!!!

Different events including the “block pushing”

And my all-time favorite “Collision”

Now you may be asking yourself, “Why the hell does Big Red have so much time on his hands.” And the answer to that is, I don’t, but I get excited over anything competitive, even if it is just some marbles racing.

You Can Now Watch the ENTIRE “Parks and Recreation” Special NOW! – Big Red

We can all admit that quarantine has had its effects on all of us in different ways. Whether you are tired of watching the same show on Netflix or Hulu over and over, or your just at home bored with nothing to do. There is very new programming available for us to consume. Well Thursday that all changed, as the cast of the hit NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” came together for a special that was absolutely incredible.

I am a HUGE “Parks and Rec” fan, and watching the special Sunday with my wife was one of the highlights of the past month and a half since the stay at home order was issued. It watch a pleasant throwback with stars such as Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Rob Lowe, and the rest of the main cast. They were also able to sprinkle in a couple secondary characters who were just as important to the show as the main employees of the Parks and Recreation department of Pawnee, Indiana.

I encourage you to sit back, grab your favorite drink, your favorite snack, and enjoy what was truly one of the best episodes of “Parks and Recreation” you will ever watch!

Brantley Gilbert’s New Music Video for “Fire’t Up” is the HOTTEST Thing You’ll See Today! {WATCH}

Brantley Gilbert always knows how to bring the FIRE to his fans and it’s no different in his latest Music Video for “Fire’t Up”. The theme of the music video is very appropriately FLAMES! Inferno! MORE FLAMES! Because that is what you get and MORE in the “Country Must Be Country Wild” singers hottest music video to date.

“We really, really did try to capture a country circus, like a redneck circus,” Gilbert says in an interview with CMT. “I feel like that definitely came to life. Our ‘Kickin’ It in the Sticks’ video is a field party/bonfire song, and I’ve written a few songs that have that storyline or close to it, so we knew we had to do something a little bit different. And with this video, I really think it brought it to life but it gave it another life, too. It’s something we hadn’t done and something that folks hadn’t seen out of us.”

“Fire’t Up” is the cornerstone track to Gilbert’s 15 song album Fire & Brimstone which he released in October of 2019, that also included a lot of rock party type songs for everyone’s enjoyment.

“To be completely honest, it was almost like another paradise for me,” Gilbert tells CMT. “It was like a party all day long. … It was an awesome experience and that’s one video shoot that I would do all over again, several times.”

We are living in a strange time, but I have been enjoying all of the virtual concerts we have gotten from so many around the country music industry and the music industry as a whole. But every once in a while it is nice to get something fresh and new, and that’s exactly what Miranda Lambert does for us with her latest music video for her song “Bluebird”.

“Bluebird” is the current single, which was released on Lambert’s latest album ‘Wildcard’ in November. Wildcard is Lambert’s seventh studio album and was released in November 2019. The ACM Award-nominated album also inspired a tour of the same name that is set to continue in April; however, coronavirus concerns have threatened all concerts and live events scheduled in April.
