Guardians of the Galaxy Mixtapes Plus #BOTB Results!
Today we have a spotlight dancer, Alana from Rambling with AM. She has chosen the theme for today as “Themes of movies or TV shows!”. I can tell you I struggled with decision here.
At first, I thought about sharing the soundtrack for “This is Spinal Tap”, which was released in 1984. But thought it might be too obscure and outrageously dumb for you, my readers, to appreciate.
Next, I thought about sharing the soundtrack to “Heavy Metal” which was an animated cult film interweaves six visionary stories of science fiction and fantasy released in 1981. But, I know that many of you don’t care for the Heavy Metal genre on such a full scale.
Instead, I am taking a ‘safer’ route today.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Have you seen any of these movies? Did I play it ‘too safe’ in my selection, or should I have shared the soundtracks from the other movies? Talk to me in the comments.
OOPS! Almost forgot!
I need to share results of the latest Battle of the Bands.
After I had a dismal turnout for my February 1 Battle of the Bands, Mr Stephen T McCarthy challenged me to find more voters for my Mid-Month Battle. So I took that challenge and am happy to report that more voters were found. I sincerely hope that they all return for my March 1 battle as well (and that they visit the other participants, too!)
Feb 15 had us dancing and drinking Tennessee Whiskey. Here are the results, including my own vote for Whiskey Lane:
Chris Stapleton with 30 votes
Whiskey Lane with 35 votes
Plus 12 poor saps who got lost in the stupor and didn’t cast a vote
See you all again on March 1 for another fun battle!
