SOUNDGARDEN

Monday, December 1st 2014

Everybody heard “Superunknown” & went bananas over it, and yes it’s a good album. Corey pretty much introduced me to them in late 2001 or early 2002 at SIAST. “Superunknown” blew up on the charts in ’94. I was 14 & really wasn’t into rock or grunge at the time. I was into Barenaked Ladies, who were my first concert with my parents & a 5 year old brother. Everybody at high school was telling me how awesome “Superunknown” by Soundgarden was. Yes, it’s a great album, Corey lent me his “Bsdmotorfinger” CD and said basically “This one is incredible”. He was right! “Badmotorfinger” is awesome, even better to me than the following album “Superunknown”. “Superunknown” is actually their 3rd album. I can honestly say I own their first 5 albums on CD which includes “Telephantasm” from a few years ago. The other 2 I bought from iTunes. I have the first CD “Louder than Love” but I’ve probably listened to it 10 times at most. I always go to “Badmotorfinger” for a Soundgarden fix. Nothing like Soundgarden on a Monday morning! FYI, Jonny Cash covered “Rusty Cage”, he didn’t write it.

What kind of trouble does Scott Stapp have himself in?

They need to stop pretending Saskatchewan doesn’t exist already! Nobody from America has a clue as to who I Mother Earth is. There’s probably many Canadians who don’t know who they are?

A band I’ve never heard of Mallory Knox. I listened to the video in the article & it’s not really for me.

Yep, I’ve always been a fan of Star Wars, no, I don’t dress up or go to comicon or wait outside the theater for 1 or 2 days. Only 5 months, I won’t get in if I only wait a few days?! You know where to find me next July-December!!!

I don’t think I’ll have much time tomorrow. Doctor appointment for refills on my medications tomorrow, then another appointment later this month.
