MUSIC

Thursday, August 29th

 

Music just makes me happy, if I hear it or create it.  Being in any band with other friends is awesome! However many of the band members all friends, get together like once or twice a week, unless there’s a scheduling problem.  In a basement or garage and work away at making/creating something we would all enjoy.  Sorry all but being in a band with your sibling is AWESOME! Mitch would write the guitar parts, I’d write and sing the lyrics and if it was Jerry on bass, Todd or Jordan on drums, they’d create their own parts.  In my first band with Rob, Rydell and Dave, we were a cover band that had 7 original songs.  Rydell wrote 4 good songs and I wrote 1 of 3 good songs on our CD.  We were trying to figure out what we wanted to do and sound like.  I was a moron in my first band it was sort of “My way or the highway”.  I wanted us to sound more like Hootie & The Blowfish and Rydell wanted us to sound more like Metallica, who I really dislike to this day!  I realized I can’t come up with good guitar parts, but lyrics I could do, no problem!

 

Being in a band with Jordan or Todd, Jerry and Mitch, all far better musicians than I, was a really fun hobby.  We’d get together in Jordan’s or Todd’s basement and make the music we wanted to hear, not the terrible stuff on the radio!  Stuff we liked and wanted to hear! 

 

CFL  Labour day weekend.  Article with Mike Reilly QB for Edmonton http://cfl.ca/article/stamps-im-just-so-hungry-right-now-i-want-to-win I’ll be cheering for Edmonton, since the Stampeders are full of morons.  I did pick B.C. and Calgary to win in my CFL page, but I’d rather see Edmonton and Montreal (as much as I dislike Montreal’s team) win.

 

News about Foo Fighters releasing an album next year with a completely different way of recording it, in a way nobody else has done?  Record it live in the studio maybe? Record it via Skype?  I don’t know, doesn’t really matter.  As long as the songs are good!

Paul McCartney’s New song and album titled “New”.  How could not at least respect McCartney or Lennon or any member of The Beatles!

Ricky Ray is injured???  QB for the Toronto Argonauts, Toronto and Winnipeg are the 2 eastern teams I cheer for unless it’s against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Indigo Joseph and Fly Points you need to check out on iTunes.  They’re not hard rock or metal, just very good and well worth checking out!

 

If there’s no global warming why am I sweating so much in an air conditioned house?
