Saskatchewan, watch what you eat for meat products from Yorkton, Saskatchewan Harvest Meats, recall!http://www.cbc.ca/m/touch/canada/british-columbia/story/1.2690965

 

I don’t care if you like their music or not, as with any band, but look at what they did to help a fan out!

I don’t hate Jack White. His music is just more miss than hit for me. Here he is covering “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.

Still my favourite film along with “Good Will Hunting”!

I only have 2 of his albums, and one is a greatest hits album. I guess you’d call him techno metal light or shock rock. Whether you like his music or not, make a point of seeing him interviewed. He’s a VERY good interview and an EXTREMELY smart guy. He also writes, directs and remakes horror movies. I don’t watch horror movies, I’m a wuss, but Criminal Minds and serial killer documentary’s don’t bother me?

It’s dumping rain here today and most of southern Saskatchewan has declared a “state of emergency”, due to flooding. I’m sure our old house is full of water in the basement. We’re good, we’re

News report about Saskatchewan Health Services. A politician will drag this survey through the mud, and probably make no changes, and that’s why I DON’T VOTE!!!! Who’s telling the truth? Don’t know and don’t care, nothing drastic will happen!

Didn’t know they split, not a band on my radar.

Another group not on my radar.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/mars-volta-offshoot-antemasque-announces-u-s-tour/

 

I don’t have to understand why half of the world likes Metallica? I have to acknowledge that they’re huge. I hear many of their fans aren’t to harpy about recent albums. Maybe they’ve hit that point where they should just tour as much as possible on their ’80s material?

http://loudwire.com/metallica-take-on-haters-glastonbury-gig/

 

Motorhead, Soundgarden and Black Sabbath $4.25? I’ll take 10 please, so I can stretch out and relax!

Rickie Lee Jones, my parents music that they’d play on most road trips and I hated it as a child, seems really good to me now though. I got it from them with many other CDs!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNgSb1TGGcQ

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl6YWgumUBc It’s not a long album, 8 songs in total. As a kid I hated her voice, different than the run of the mill radio stuff or my Chipmunks/Sesame Street/Raffi/Mini Pops albums that I’d play in my room on my Mickey Mouse record player.

Here’s Metallica stirring the pot at Glastonbury.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/metallica-kicked-off-their-glastonbury-set-with-this-satirical-film-about-bear-hunting/

 

Pearl Jam behind the scene look at European tour. I don’t know what that’s supposed to show you, but there it is if you like?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn8Np-Fcl-U&feature=youtu.be

 

From what I know they have one video. I was instantly hooked we’ll call it “Mexican rock”. I have the one CD “Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big & Buzzy” from ’96. They also did “The King of the Hill” theme song. I’m quite certain that there’s a different group on iTunes with the same name with 4 or 5 albums. These guys made one album from what I can tell?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iQLNR9btr4 I think it was the group I’m talking about, sounds like them anyways.

 

I saw and heard this video and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I hope the plumbers have a great Canada Day long weekend! “We’ll be back Thursday or Friday to fix the a/c”. How many times is it going to break ’cause this must be the 8th time so far. I think this was the 2nd longest time it’s been working, 11 days, the longest time was 12 days. If they hit 2 weeks I’ll be floored! Have they ever thought of replacing the unit? If I get warm I’ll be half naked in the hall, and I wont be breaking any written condo rules and whoever passes by will hear this…… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjQ1xD6UL-4 Yeah first world problems. The plumbers are the reason I drink with no shirt on half way through the day on a weekend! Good thing I’m pretty!

Red Hot Chili Peppers, two albums and a few songs “Californication” album and “By the Way” album, then the 2 singles from “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic” album. I own those CDs, as well as the double album “Stadium Arcadium” which I listened to one time the day after it’s release and put it away, haven’t touched it since! Here’s the songs I like by them.

Then they made “Stadium Arcadium” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuFI5KSPAt4 Nope, not for me. I stopped paying attention to them when I heard this album. Didn’t even get my butt up to Saskatoon to see them when this was released!

Why did this become a music blog? Music is my hobby as was baseball that I watch daily, Blue Jays baseball that is. I listen to a pile of music and I practice my guitar about 2 or more times a week. It’s true what they say about lead singers though. Some random girl completely wasted would approach me after a show and try to get me to go where ever with her. Became more of a pain that I wanted.

 

I always responded with “No, I have a girlfriend”. Dave bailed me out at the Plains Hotel once when I was approached by a drunken/persistent girl. She wouldn’t leave me alone. Dave saw this and called out to me “Hey Chris, would you mind giving me a hand with packing up my drums?” He bailed me out and I immediatelly said “Thank you” and probably went on a rant. It didn’t happen all of the time, maybe 4 times in total.

 

I thought if one of us 4 would go through that it would be Rydell, since he’s so pretty?

RADIOHEAD

Thursday, June 26th 2014

 

Daft Punk documentary in the works.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/daft-punk-to-be-the-focus-of-a-forthcoming-documentary/

 

HILARIOUS Texts! http://www.collegehumor.com/post/6977149/here-are-the-16-most-hilarious-ways-to-respond-to-a-wrong-number-text

 

Radiohead made 3 remarkable albums at first then many albums of random noise followed by “In Rainbows” then back to the stuff I don’t like. “Pablo Honey” was a pretty good debut album! “The Bends” is awesome and “OK Computer” is mind blowing, then “Kid A” to begin the random noise onslaught! With a glimmer of hope on “In Rainbows”.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkzRNyygfk “Pablo Honey” ’93

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BciOfJsqh7M “The Bends” ’95 and 2 more songs, great album

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_qMagfZtv8

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrTB-iiecqk Both have very cool videos

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBH97ma9YiI Again cool videos from “OK Computer”

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5CVsCnxyXg

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBJICA5B7xE

 

One from “In Rainbows”. They put this on their website for a minimum of $0.01. I bought the actual CD.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WedRDYmtvX4 2007. An OK album, better than the albums in between “OK Computer” & “In Rainbows”

 

I’m hot and more than a little tired. Our a/c isn’t working……………again. It wasn’t working all day yesterday either it’s 80F in here today. Working out when you’ve been tired all week isn’t fun, it sucks, especially in any temperature over 74F. These are my first world middle class problems. I wake up somewhere between 4:30am-10:00am, last week was around 5:00am, this Monday as well when we drove to Saskatoon to see Queen.

Pearl Jam’s reason for covering “Let it Go”

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/eddie-vedder-explains-why-pearl-jam-covered-let-it-go/

 

Groom & Groomsmen dance to Beyonce, Destiny’s Child and Backstreet Boys. HILARIOUS!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/25/groomsmen-wedding-dance_n_5530110.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000023&ir=Good+News

 

I own 5 of the CDs, “S/T”, “Rated R”, “Songs for the Deaf”, “Lullabies to Paralyze” and a live greatest hits CD called “Over the Years & Through the Woods”. I’ve got “Era Vulgaris” and the most recent release “…like Clockwork”.

 

For me “Era Vulgaris” get’s a pass, not a fan of it in the least, all of the other albums are good and may have 1 or 2 songs not up to par for me. I’ll give you 1 song from each album that have been released in the order that I mentioned, just not the greatest hits album. They aren’t metal, but weird rock. They call it “dessert rock”?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYbQMCWEAsk ’98

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0fJQsB7G4g 2000

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s88r_q7oufE 2002 This was my introduction to them, because Dave Grohl played drums on the entire album.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69e8oa85F3g 2005 they had this following song as their first single

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGRqnNEOpe0

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHDaKtx6bGY The only half decent song on “Era Vulgaris” late 2007

 

And now the most recent release that I can’t seem to get enough of. Dave Grohl played drums on the entire album again and multiple musicians played on different songs, Elton John, their old bass player (Nick Olivery), Trent Reznor (Mr. Nine inch Nails), and maybe a few more?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOXaUjGk-yY 2013.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21pJ2m45P0I This isn’t really a singles album. It’s a full album to listen to or one you might just pass on all together. I found that with each album, in the beginning, that the more I listen to whatever album, the more I’d like. Of course the exception of “Era Vulgaris”

I love this band!!!! Here’s your music news and an interview with “The Wild Feathers” not a heavy group, comparable to Lynyrd Skynyrd without the 4 minute guitar solo.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjkXCObxR5A

 

Puscifer. Maynard from Tool, his 2nd side project. Not as heavy as Tool.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LoiblDKBDc Apparently you’re not allowed to change this song if you cover it.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bigVpjDEoCo

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFr-85DVZaw Don’t look to purchase an actual CD. 1 CD of there’s will cost you well over $100 on amazon.ca or .com. iTunes is the way to go if you like them. I have 3 full length albums and 3 EPs!

I’m going to possibly get heck for this, I can feel it coming on as I type this.

 

Yep, these guys and only this particular album. Now that I think of it, this is my heritage! I’m half or more Scottish, so……………..it works out great!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM0sTNtWDiI

I grew up with this and I love it. My father bought the CD when I was still in elementary school. The CD was released when I was 8 years old.

 

So here’s a few album tracks, this could be difficult. I can put this on and listen to all of it.

A Masterpiece review by the CoS/RIOB on the Who’s album “Tommy”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ghu8OLP3yQ

 

Probot, 1 album that’s OK. Dave Grohl’s attempt at metal music. Of course I like it, I’m biased. I wouldn’t call it a straight out metal album, that would be and was a big let down for metal fans. If I like something that lot’s of people don’t, that’s fine. Dave Grohl played all of the instruments, wrote all of the songs and sent the songs to his favourite metal singers.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LIkKmgbFpA Probably the heaviest song on the album. Max from “Sepultura”/”Soul fly” on vocals.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25Ewd_fpETI Jack Black on vocals! WARNING! FOR EVERY LINK HERE ON!

 

The only actual video from this album with Lemmy of Motorhead on vocals.

First song on the album http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1ZYl081D14 Cronos of “Venom” on vocals.
