CONCERTS & EXPECTATIONS

Thursday, August 29th

 

I guess I shouldn’t set my expectations so high?  Then I wouldn’t be so disappointed by some people?!     What were you doing after January 30th 2009?  I was recovering still, throwing up everything and anything, even in a Booster Juice in the middle of the Southland Mall food court.  “Oh well, he survived” and then TONS of people disappeared like “Magic” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0Kv6vxZwL8 Yes, there were a few people I expected to see and even more that I didn’t.  Lot’s of my friends and cousins were and still are at the point where they’re looking for their future spouse or popping out babies or raising young children.  That’s fine I get that!  So what’s your excuse for never coming to see me when I almost died in the hospital or Rehabilitation Center, which was far more difficult than anyone could imagine, and there is still a possibility that I could until December 31st 2013.  No, I don’t need a 100 people calling me or emailing me to see how I’m doing.  I’m fine, thanks for making me feel like a wet bag of dog shit on the bottom of your shoe!

 

Going through something like I did shows exactly who gives a shit about me!

 

Yes I love The Cars, all I have is their greatest hits but it’s all I need.  My dad’s music growing up, Elvis Costello, Queen, Dire Straits, The Beatles, etc.  And my mom’s music, The Monkeys, “Spirit in the Sky”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swIcX57vYDI The original/this version, Black Sabbath when Ozzy was still the singer, The Beach Boys, etc.

 

Kim has played the vito card on my music purchasing from iTunes.  We need to save our pennies for more important things like paying back our parents, my season tickets to the Riders next year, our mortgage and condo fees, a gas BBQ (no propane allowed), etc.

 

I’m 99.9% once Brewster kicks the bucket years down the road (he’s probably having his mid life crisis at 7 years old right now) we won’t be allowed to have another small dog in our condo. DUMBEST.RULE.EVER!  We pay the same amount as everyone else in the condo who are free to do whatever they like.  Why can’t we rescue a small dog?  How will that affect others.  It’s the same thing with gay marriage in the USA what people do is they’re own choice.  How will it affect anyone else? 

 

Jack Johnson, Pearl Jam and Trivium will have to wait on iTunes I guess? Alter Bridge is already pre ordered on iTunes.  Jack Johnson comes out before the rest of them on September 17th. I have quite a bit of music to listen to as it is.  I would like more but our money tree has no leaves left on it, oh well.

 

We  have 2 concerts to make the 2 ½ hour drive to Saskatoon for this year.  I’d like to see the “Dixie Chicks”, but that wont happen.  Why do small name bands play in a small bar in Saskatoon and not Regina?  I’m positive more than 50% of the audience is from Regina at any show there.  Saskatoon is not known as a city full of music fans, so why?  They do have a bigger arena than us, but if you’re playing at a bar, you should consider coming to your fans, and not vice versa.

 

When Gord Downie learns how to sing and not do whatever you want to call it, then I’ll listen to The Tragically Hip.  I have 4 or 5 albums that I don’t listen to much. Like Johnny Cash, I never saw the appeal.  Even the movie wasn’t that great.  The movie “Ray” seemed much better to me.

 

Here are a few of my favourite songs, I’ll warn you if it’s metal or contains foul language.

Don’t know if this will work, here’s a trailer for a movie I’d like to see, as well as Despicable Me 2!

I guess “The Lone Ranger” tanked at the box office, I’ll rent it on demand then for $5.
