THE WEEKEND THUS FAR

Saturday, August 31st

 

Why am I up so early?  Brewster was freaking out since there was a storm at 6:30 this morning.  Kim was already up with him and had taken him outside.  Then they came back to bed and woke me up.  Brewster was panting until I got dressed, had breakfast and brushed my teeth by 8:00.  Just in case I wasn’t awake yet.

 

This is on my facebook whatever you want to call it!  Like Dave Grohl or not, MUSICIANS CALL HIM A GOD LIKE GENIOUS!   Foo Fighters are a positive house hold name.  FACT.  Other than Dave Grohl’s potty mouth, I’ve never really heard anything negative about them.  There are some songs I’m not a fan of but this song is one of my favourite album tracks off of “There’s Nothing Left to Lose” the 3rd album, and it’s not a heavy rock song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMe05dO816k RUSH I’ve mostly heard negative things and they are a house hold name.  I do enjoy the newer stuff from them, especially the “Snakes & Arrows” album with this opening track.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSoiURfbP9s   Geddy Lee’s voice isn’t mixed a hundred yards in front of the band like the stuff on the radio where they play “Tom Sawyer”, “Fly by Night” and “Closer to the Heart”!  This was the first RUSH song and album I liked about a month or so ago.  Took me long enough!

 

Yeah, I have my off days when I wake up and think “Why?”.  “Why does something like this ever happen to ANYONE?”.  Then I get up and go about my day and deal with a disability, that could have been much worse.  I got lucky, I survived!  I’m no hero or victim, I’m just a regular guy, with an amazing wife and family, and had great people helping me through something I may not have survived!  Kim doesn’t get the credit she deserves!  I would love to do something for her, but I don’t know what?  I can’t just step out and get anything for her, no one will let me drive and our money tree has no leaves on it.  I even have to stop getting albums off iTunes.

Cool version of “Rocket Man” by Elton John covered by Maynard from TOOL and a guy from the Flaming Lips.  Quite a bit like the original version with Maynard’s fantastic voice!

I guess Big Wreck doesn’t play “Immigrant song” by Led Zeppelin anymore at the end of their set like they did from ’99-2002.  When I was able to see them, their first album came out in ’97 the 2nd album was released in 2001 or 2002.  Then we had “Thornley” until 2012.  Different, like comparing apples to oranges.  I wasn’t that big on “Thornley” others were though, same song writer and singer though.

“There’s always someone else having a worse day than you or I”

 

“Don’t change who you are for anybody!  Tell people to like the person you already are or else you’ll be lying for the rest of your life”  I’m the one who needs to adjust who I am, not anyone else!

 

Bye,

“Hubby Boo Boo” aka “Butthead” aka Christopher
