ELLEN & FOO FIGHTERS!

Thursday, November 20th 2014

Kim & I watch the Ellen Degeneres show everyday. We were a bit behind and hadn’t watched any of this week so we watched all 3 episodes last night. Wednesday’s show had a Dave Grohl interview followed by a Foo Fighters performance!

Radiohead is in the studio. Since the release of “Kid A”, album number 4, I’ve all but lost interest in them.

Number of times I’ve listened to “Foo Fighters : Sonic Highways”……………24! First song once it was released 41!

WARNING!!!

Some newspaper writer was terribly upset and wrote an article saying he “hates Dave Grohl” that’s fine don’t bother listening to his music then. The writer went on to say he “hated Nirvana” again that’s fine. He did go to see Foo Fighters in concert & has watched the HBO series and still holds a hatred towards Dave Grohl since the writer calls the HBO series a “commercial” for the album since the songs don’t sound any different than other FF stuff. Agreed, sort of. Did the writer really think they’d change their sound completely on this album? Listen a bit closer to the album. First of all not liking it is fine. Secondly, the lyrics are “…looking for a dime & found a quarter…” not “…looking for a nickle and found a quarter…”. Please do your research & as I’ve learned thus far don’t waste your energy being mad or worrying about something, live in the NOW. You can’t change the past but the choices you make will affect your future.

New Soundgarden song released!

Ozzy knows his voice is going. I saw him live shortly before I got sick & everything was tuned down from E standard to C standard for Ozzy’s voice, still a good show!

I hope this doesn’t mean I’ll have to get an iPhone to listen to music?

Does this mean a new Fall Out Boy album is coming? Some of their stuff is quite catchy!

How long have The Simpsons been on TV? I’m 34 now, yet I remember having the soundtrack from the show, on cassette and doing an air band to it in grade 6.

Trailer for Friday night’s Foo Fighters episode on HBO.

Yes, thermostat/radiator is on all of the time again since Monday. Too windy to leave the door open. I’m sweating while watching TV. BEST. WORKOUT. EVER!!!

Sorry, lots of Foo Fighters news. That seems to be the hot topic this week.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
“I feel good about the good things and bad about the bad things”-David Eric Grohl
