How did these people ever make it without “winning” a competition/reality show?

I can’t stand Metallica, but millions of people love them. I don’t get it, I’ll gladly take Megadeth and Pantera, possibly ANYONE over Metallica. They have more of my money than they deserve. For me OVERATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So here’s a review from the RIOB.

GWAR bar? I don’t really care. A metal band that disguise themselves as “aliens” and shoot the audience with many different coloured bodily fluids. Take the costumes and squirt guns away and what’s left? Generic metal music.

MATT MAYS/MATT MAYS & EL TORPEDO

Tuesday, May 27th 2014

 

New day, new attitude! I’ll chalk up yesterday as a bad day and forget about it.

 

He sounds to me like a younger Tom Petty, his voice and his music. That’s the closest musician I can think of to compare him to. He’s made 3 solo albums and 2 Matt Mays & El Torpedo albums. 1 CD of each I highly recommend checking out. “Coyote” by Matt Mays and the self titled “Matt Mays & El Torpedo” albums. They don’t disappoint if you’re looking for something similar to Tom Petty.

Here’s Matt Mays & El Torpedo….

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LDWD9Gv-PE I really like this album!

Here’s a few tracks from the album “Coyote”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESRofDkmg0I THIS ONE’S NOT FOR KIDS R-RATED!!!

 

Yesterday I was trying to please EVERYONE! Can’t and won’t ever happen. I felt as though I was being critisized. Yes, I critisized everyone out of the gates from this cancer crap. Yesterday is done and tomorrow should hopefully be amazing! I still have stuff to learn and yes, I’ll make mistakes. So I’ll learn from them, apologize for what I’ve done to those I’ve hurt, move forward and forget about stuff I can’t change.

Local country artist Chris Henderson. Country isn’t a genre of music that I enjoy because of the “twang” in many vocalist’s voices. Chris Henderson does not have a “twang” in his voice. Tyler Wanner was playing lead guitar in his group at one of the “Relay for Life” walks my team did. Tyler Wanner played in “Left Foot Louie” when Chris Messer lived here.

I’m not on Spotify, but here’s a punk album mentioned by the RIOB.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/05/stream-the-orwells-new-album-disgraceland/

 

Apparently the “In Flames” CD or Vinyl is available for preorder on websites I’ve never heard and are all in Swedish I assume. I’ll wait for the release on iTunes so I can preorder it.

Here’s 1 of the 4 sites if you like.

Scientists can manipulate your brain to like a certain type of music?

I had to skip past 5 artists on my iTunes for this “Machine Head” (good metal) I have 7 of their albums, yet I’m stuck on “The Blackening” album and haven’t listened to anything else, so a review would not be fair. Then I have 1 album by “Mad Season” a one off album by 6 grunge icons.

Layne Stayley(AIC) on guitar, Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) lead guitar, Mark Lanegan (Q.O.T.S.A. occasionally) on vocals and 3 other people who’s names don’t ring a bell. Album “Above” recorded in 1995. 3 of Kim’s songs, then Matchbox 20. Only 2 albums in my possession the first release “Yourself or Someone Like You” 1996 and “More than You Think You are” released in 2002. I’ll give you 2 songs from each album. Yes, I saw the tour for their first album “Yourself or Someone Like You”.

I could sit here & pretend everything’s sunshine and roses, but I’d be lying EVERY /THE MAJORITY of my relationships, family, extended family, family friends and personal friends have all been affected by this cancer bullshit. Maybe it’s just my take on things, and I take things the wrong way? I know I’m not the first, last or only one who’s made unhealthy choices! I had brain cancer, I survived, end of story! Yes, my life is different, no big deal. I can accept it as it is, those of you that haven’t, let me know when you do. Until then I’ll see you later. You come to me! Life seems to be better if I just “SHUT THE FRONT DOOR”

As far as Lynyrd Skynyrd goes, I have 2 greatest hits albums from iTunes so I could have those legendary songs “Sweet Home Alabama”, “Free Bird”, and “Tuesday’s Gone”, etc. Everything on them was REALLY good! I think Rydell danced with his mother to this song when he got married?

What were we up to during our busy week? Monday Mitch & Rachel were here for brunch, our aunt Leanne and uncle Kent we’re here on their way back to Calgary until 2pm, Liz, Dave and the kids were here that evening to watch the Montreal Canadiens vs. NY Rangers for some playoff hockey. Tuesday we wen’t to see “Draft Day”, cheap Tuesday, with Chuck & Stacey, awesome movie and I can’t sit through a 4 hour NFL game. Wednesday nothing out of the ordinary. Thursday Chris & Carla, all the way from Albania stopped by for the evening to watch game 3 of the series. Friday, Kim had a girls night with girls from her workplace. I sat on the couch and watched baseball and PVR stuff Kim wouldn’t enjoy. Saturday I woke up at 5:30 because our A/C wasn’t working and it was already 80F before 9am. We were going to my parents for dinner anyways so we figured we’d make a day of it. Met Rachel’s parents, I was sure Mitch & Rachel were going to tell us Rachel was pregnant…………………….not yet though thank goodness. We came out shortly before midnight to a 78F condo. Kim flipped the breaker on and off and we woke up to a room tempurature condo. Today we held down the couch after I got up at 11:30 I was bagged, still am!

I do have one question before this happens. http://loiter.co/v/why-are-we-not-funding-this-2/ How much is one piece of solar panel compared to 10sqfeet of asphalt or concrete?

 

I like Beck, I own 3 of his CDs from the ’90s but is he still relevant today?

REALLY? You can preorder this season’s America Idol winner, Caleb Johnson, already on iTunes for release on August 12th. Yeah, he’s a FANTASTIC singer but I hope he get’s to approve or have a hand in writing his album. Yeah, the rock singer won. I think whoever wrote the album might water it down for mass consumption?

They had our a/c working for 2 hours finally yesterday then it stopped in the afternoon. How hot was it in here when I got out of bed at 8:45am? 80F. The heat and I are at odds even during the “polar vortex”/”flux capacitor” it was over 75F quite a few times.

Yep, Lyle Lovett, you read that properly! Country musician who has a jazz album as well, the guy that everybody went crazy on “How did a guy that ugly marrie Julia Roberts?” I don’t hate country music, I’m just very picky about what I listen to. I only have 2 of his albums. “Lyle Lovett and his very Large Band” & “Anthology Number One”
