Today is my father-in-laws actual 65th birthday. My in-laws don’t have internet so If you’d like to send a birthday wish, I’m sure Kim, Sherry, Aaron or I could pass that along!
I skipped past Eddie Vedder’s “Into The Wild” soundtrack since I hardly ever listen to it, and The Edgar Winter Group album I have but haven’t listened to it. I’ve only heard this song by them on a ’70s rock compilation. Instrumental awesome rock to me!
Sir Elton John, yes he’s been knighted by the Queen. Kim and I were fortunate enough to see him live here in Regina while I was still in my Rehabilitation program. No we couldn’t buy the tickets, we didn’t have the cash so as per usual one set of our parents got them. My parents this time. They had already seen him live, and got tickets anyway. We didn’t ask for them, but it was a fantastic show.
I have 2 of his albums. One I borrowed from my father, (Madman Across the Water) and a Greatest Hits from iTunes.

Just watch this animated movie that Sir Elton John produced and provided the music for…

The Weather. I hate/loathe the sun. 20C is enough for me, by far! If you want to find me this summer, I’ll be inside, probably naked, in front of the air conditioner/vent with our only/South facing blinds closed! So far it’s reached 80F, 78F and 77F in here. Our building needs to turn on the air, NOW! Everyone got to complain about the cold (which doesn’t bother me) why? Summer I can only get so naked, but winter I can wear as many layers that I need. So I’ll be in the coolest, darkest room I can find with a TV to watch the Blue Jays season this year, then the CFL will start and our seats are on the 45 yard line on the sunny/hot side of the stadium. Other than weddings or birthdays my butt will be inside, in short shorts or naked, call before you come in!
If the day ever comes that I have to have a cell phone, I know exactly how I’ll use it! No email, twitter, facebook, texting or face time and I’ll use it like a home phone, it won’t leave this suite, why? I don’t think it’s stupid to have one it’s a personal choice. If I’m out, I’m out doing something you weren’t invited to, I’m busy. If I’m home and it’s not time for a meal, I’ll answer the phone if I recognize the number. If I don’t know the number or person calling, on and off instantly, and don’t call back again! That’s why I’ve decided to NOT have any type of mobile device, maybe a Kindle later on? You text me, I’ll call you. The screen on a cell PHONE is far to small! I grew up without a phone in my hand and I’m still alive? I wonder how that happened?
Superman and Batman movie. Does everyone think Ben Affleck won’t make a good Batman? Why did he get the part then? You didn’t like “Mallrats”, “Good Will Hunting”, “Chasing Amy”, Dogma”, “Jersey Girl”, “Argo”, “The Town”, etc. That’s fine movies are subjective as well, pretty much everything is! Have you seen the Batman and Superman movie? If you have A. You’re special B. Tell everyone your thoughts on it! If you haven’t shut up, watch the movie when it’s released, then you can form your opinion, OK.
I don’t vote or complain. If I’m not complaining about anything to do with the government (provincial, federal or any other type) why would I vote if the ship seems to be going fine for me? It’s a selfish choice but if somebody flat out says “This is going to change”, I’ll vote if I need to, and then I’ll bitch and whine like all of the voters do after whatever amount of time and say “Aahh, I should have voted for someone else, this is terrible. What did I do?” You voted whoever into office. It wasn’t me!
To sum it up, this is just my view on things. Sure you can disagree, I’m not right all of the time. “I don’t want to be perfect. I want to be bad ass!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
