Kurt Cobain’s letter about Courtney Love, found in his walllet

OK, Into Eternity! I have all of their CDs, even the very rare first self-titled album I downloaded for free. Then the other 4 on CD. A local band who is signed to a label and makes zippo from sales on iTunes. Yes, they’re a heavy metal group and Tim Roth founded the group and is the only original member. They’ve toured with some big name acts “Megadeth”, “Dream Theater and I think “Iron Maiden”. The 4 albums you can find on iTunes are in order of release “Dead or Dreaming” 2002, “Buried in Oblivion” 2004, “The Scattering of Ashes” 2006 and “The Incurable Tragedy” 2008. Tim Roth is also the lead guitar player and sings back up vocals. Harmonies of Queen and music of progressive metal. Here’s a track from the 4 albums, in order of release.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5GSFcYqBoc This was a gateway album for me. Listening to more metal music after hearing this.

 

These are the first two songs from “The Incurable Tragedy”. A classical guitar instrumental followed by a metal song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pErCYkkUpdQ

 

Toronto Blue Jays, WHY? This is Tuesday evening haven’t seen the entire game yet. Why would tell Dustin McGowan he’s your 5th starting pitcher after waiting 14 injury plagued years and then put him on a short leash after he’s played 5 games? You’re blatantly threatening him, and saying if he doesn’t pick up his game he’s going back to the minors. Why not give him 10 games or 15 instead of saying “do this now or else”? You did the excact same thing to your rookie everyday 2nd baseman! Goins is left handed and he didn’t get any opportunity to hit against left handed pitchers. So you call up a different left handed 2nd baseman from the minor league system and he gets to hit/play against a left handed pitcher, why? Sure numbers matter in baseball, you also have to trust what you see on the field though. These moves yell, “We’re making moves for the sake of making a move”. I can’t see the reasons behind all of this? It has no reasonable meaning? Wednesday morning. I watched the rest of the game, if they continue to play this way against teams they should beat out of their division, it will be a mess and very close to the disappoiting season last year.

 

We’re not following a diet, just being very concious of the food we eat. I was 265lbs before I was in the hospital and really didn’t look that heavy. Now I’m 228lbs and most of my T-Shirts don’t fit along with my jeans and sweat pants! I eat pineapple and mango strips for breakfast, 2 lettuce wraps with deli meat, cheese, one strip of bacon in each wrap and a few sun dried tomatoes. Supper we have a small steak, some other type of meat or pasta, with a TON of vegetables or a juice of fruit & vegetables!

I blew through the 2 “Incubus” CDs I have since I don’t listen to them very often. 6 song EP on iTunes. They remind me of The Beatles, now that’s high praise! Their music I mean. Anyone Mr. and Mme. Fletcher, their son is a part of this group. If there’s a concert from them in Regina? I’d go in a heartbeat. They’re really good.

Kim and I are OK. I’m getting very strong and still working out 5 days a week. Had a good visit at Dave and Liz’s place last night. “Auntie” Kim was nominated to read the kids their bed time story. Coming up the walk to the house, the kids had the door open and were jumping and screaming “Uncle Chris, Auntie Kim! It was very cute!

IN FLAMES

I saw them live in Saskatoon in the final “Sounds of the Underground” tour when Sherry and James lived in their house there. Usualy I have to hear an album first but they stole the show. I own 5 CDs and 5 albums from iTunes albums. I have their promo album “Lunar Strain” CD released in ’94. Kim and I found it at a now gone store when I was well enough to travel in our wheelchair van in 2009 or 2010. James and I saw them on the “Come Clarity” tour. There’s an album being released by them in 2014 later on. I can’t wait! Here’s a few tracks by them, “Sense of Purpose” and “Come Clarity” are 2 of my favourite albums from them. WARNING THEY’RE A SWEDISH (DEATH) METAL GROUP ! If that’s not you’re thing, don’t bother opening the links! James and I also saw “Cannibal Corpes” at the show and we both said “Looks difficult, but sounds like crap”! We were there to see “Trivium” who had technical problems.

 

Everybody seems to cover this “Genesis” song… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ3f-2Eo94U from rhe “Reroute to Remain” album in 2010.

Know what you’re eating, I’m not the type of person who craves beef. I have a small steak once a week for iron which is also in spinach, which I have in a juice or as a salad.

Here’s a list from www.loudwire.com with all of 2014s announced releases of hard rock and metal bands with the date of the release. http://loudwire.com/2014-hard-rock-metal-releases/?428

 

I believe this is a biopic of Jimi Hendrix. Staring Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix. “All is by my Side” set to hit theatres June 13th.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/04/check-out-a-new-photo-of-andre-3000-as-jimi-hendrix/

 

I’ve heard the entire Rory Partin album, through a representative of his, and it’s good! The single “Everybody’s got Somebody but me” is available on iTunes. The album is self-titled not the name of the single, “Rory Partin”!

 

Paul Simon was arrested after a domestic disturbance with his wife?

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/04/paul-simon-arrested-following-domestic-dispute-with-wife/

 

Iced Earth is a metal group Stu Block from Regina’s metal heroes Into Eternity joined Iced Earth and I believe he has done 2 albums with them thus far. I only have 1 album from iTunes by them out of 19 albums, and yes, I fell asleep while listening to it last night. I usually fall asleep to heavier music.

 

I think Stu Block sang on this album “Plagues of Babylon” and “Dystopia”? They’ll be in Regina at the Excange on May 11th.

I’ll try to be at the concert. I may ask my brother to take me, but it’s on a Sunday. I don’t think Kim works on the 12th a Monday, she’s not a fan of metal music in the least!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng0t2Q1-tlE

 

I slept in a bit, 9:30. Kim’s home today so I did actual yoga today! Left knee on the ground and right FOOT on the ground with my right arm out in front and my left arm stretched out behind me holding on to the table with Kim holding on to me for balance. I’m pretty sure I could do it on my own, we’ll see!?

 

I did that after 100 crunches and 35 push ups in 2 sets of ten and then a set of fifteen, and still I’m sweaty and gross.  I don’t work out to dace and techno music anymore!  Usually “Iron Maiden” or “MegaDave” aka “Megadeth”

I MOTHER EARTH

Sunday, April 27th 2014

 

“Music news first! Foo Fighters recording status thus far. What we know at this point. Album to be released between September-December 2014. They are using a “never done before” method of writing and recording the 8th studio album. They are recording songs in different studios in the USA, possibly outside of the USA in the future? 5 sessions of recording are known thus far. Butch Vig is the sole producer of the record. They are recording video footage alongside the audio recording for an unknown usage.”- All info from a FF fan facebook page.

 

June 17th 2014 a new release from Linkin Park, “The Hunting Party” album title, 12 songs on the album, 12 songs to be on the FF release as well.

 

I know I have Dave Grohl’s autograph on the back of a ticket stub from the “Summersault” festival of 2000 in Saskatoon. We went to frame it today with a poster and another ticket stub autographed by Chris, Taylor and Nate from 2008 in Saskatoon, shortly after I got sick. I think I have 3 Taylor Hawkins autographs? We’ve looked EVERYWHERE with no success. I know it was on my bedroom mirror when I lived in my parents house.

 

I Mother Earth. A Canadian alternative rock group out of Ontario that has been to Saskatchewan twice and more specifically Regina once on the tour for their 3rd album “Blue, Green, Orange” with Brian Byrne. Saskatoon with Edwin on the “Scenery & Fish” album tour, their 2nd album.

 

Releases in order are “Dig” ’93, “Scenery & Fish” ’96 both with singer Edwin, “Blue, Green, Orange” ’99, and “The Quicksilver Meat Dream” 2003. Last 2 albums with singer Brian Byrne. “Scenery & Fish” bolted them to Canadian fame they had 4 music videos/singles from that album.

 

Here’s the BIG single Tool covered live that I can’t find now, from the album “Dig”

3 more singles from this album http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUSzLFIRBls

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T0PY_X9XNM A mellow song

 

“Scenery & Fish” 4 singles

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFAVcTsOOl8 Sorry about the poor video, this was 18 years ago though.

 

The first single from “Blue, Green, Orange” with Brian Byrne as the singer.

2 songs from “The Quicksilver Meat Dream” album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHuQ287Rfy0

 

Slap guitar! Not bass.

They’ve sort of reunited in 2012 and toured a bit, mostly in Ontario and everywhere but Saskatchewan and maybe Manitoba? The drummer and his brother, Chris Tanna and the guitarist Jag Tanna, are in a studio making music together that may be released if Brian and Bruce record their parts? It’s a wait and see situation. Almost every song on these 4 albums still hold up for me. I Mother Earth/I.M.E. were the first “heavy” rock band I got into, same with my younger but bigger brother, I think?

 

As for our condo, a few things need to happen. We’ve been here since December 19th so 4 months. The shower heads we picked before it was built are still M.I.A. We asked for telephone shower heads, which are WAY easier for me to use, but we still have regular shower heads without the cord in both bathrooms. The plumber said it would take a while to do, but 4 months is a longtime.

 

The cabinet maker was here 3 or 4 weeks ago to measure the laundry room for cupboards above the washer and drier. He had spoke to Kim and set a date to come and measure when she would be here. He came on a different day, when she wasn’t here and now he won’t return her phone calls!

 

Those are 2 minor things to fix. 4 months is a little RIDICULOUS in my books. When we moved in, it wasn’t ready, it just had to pass a safety inspection. No hot water, a leaky toilet, uncarpeted floors in the hall, lots of dust coming under the door, and the air conditioning is not working yet! The suite temperature has already hit 76, 77, 78, and 80F twice in here. I don’t sweat on the couch because I’m a tad heavier than I’d like! It’s because of the heat in here! Once the air is working, you know where to find me. I’ll be in here, in front of an air vent, wearing this…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4D7rlhbBfU and nothing else. Ladies, you may want to call before you come over!!

 

In 3 weeks I’ve only lost one pound. I did have Easter supper and 3 or 4 meals of leftovers though! A bowl of berry crisp with ice cream and 2 blizzards from DQ during that time. It’s my own fault. These past 3 days I’ve been very conscientious of what I’ve eaten.

Man this is old like “Back to the future” old and I like it. I have a quite a few iTunes stuff on my iPod. Remember this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LB5YkmjalDg

 

I think I have everything, including the Greatest Hits album. He did one album with a big band…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDztE7e9Skg

 

These are very representative of what is on his other albums.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7JVlpm0eRs

 

That’s all of the “H” section on my iTunes/iPod.
