Paralyzed - Alexandra & The Scott Benson Band

I had the very fortunate opportunity to have a sneak-preview of the brand new single "Paralyzed" by White City's Alexandra Barabe and The Scott Benson Band from Moose Jaw and Regina.

This single is going to appeal to all those hard-rockers and metal-heads out there.  "Paralyzed" is a rock-solid metal song brought to completely new heights by the soaring vocals of Alexandra.  This track would feel welcome among tracks by Evanescence, Flyleaf or even local darlings, Sonic Orchid.  I hope this is a partnership that continues to grow.  I would love to hear what they can find in more unfamiliar territory!

Check this track out this Friday, debuting on Moose Jaw's Mix 103, or tune in to The Cockpit at 11PM on Feb 11th!

The Christmas Sweater - A Hopefully True Poem By Pilot
Christmas dawned early for Pilot that year
Stirred by the squeals of his offspring came to his ear
“I’m not getting up” he grumbled out loud
“I won’t get what I want so why even go down”

“Don’t be a grinch” The Stewardess responded
“let’s go see if the kids got what they wanted”
“Fine!” said Pilot and he stomped down the stairs
“But I’m cold and unfashionable and nobody cares!”

There in the parlour knee deep spread about
Piles of coloured paper and kids heads popping out
“Well I’m glad you’re all happy” he was heard to remark
As he turned to the kitchen to make coffee – extra dark.

When suddenly a ring at the bell caused a stir
The dogs they went crazy, the kids began to whirrr!
“Is it Baba, Red or The Navigator, WHO?”
“Let me answer the door and find out, now SHOO!”

Pilot opened the door to a confusing sight
There stood the mailman with a beard all of white
“Sign here” was his greeting as he presented a box
and before Pilot was done scribbling, he was gone like a fox

“What is it, What is it” the children did sing
“I don’t know” he replied “I’m not expecting anything”
He untied the bow and peeled back the paper
and with his trusty pocket knife he opened the container

There wrapped in gold and green tissue so tight
A Ghostbusters cardigan all red, silver and white
“Great Scott” he exclaimed “this thing is so rad!”
“Now I’ll be the very coolest Christmas Dad!”

Back up the stairs he dashed double quick
and threw on the cardigan and a red turtleneck.
And grabbing his pipe he sat down on the couch
Rubbed his fat belly and let out a big Christmas belch.
