“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

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



2 songs from “The Quicksilver Meat Dream” album.



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…

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.
