Tons of people have an iPod, so why bother paying for Satellite Radio if you want it for 1-4 radio stations? If you can hear what you want on both radio or your iPod or iPhone why do you need the other? Both will work in your vehicle or home, wont they? We have satellite radio in our 2014 Santa Fe because there is a promotion on now 3 extra months of it for $4.00 a month, after 3 months of a free trial. $4.00 a month won’t kill us. I don’t drive at all, Kim drives everywhere. She’s found her country radio station on Serious XM. Once the sale is done, we won’t renew it. If we’re going on a long car trip we bring my iPod & Kim’s iPhone. If we’re driving around in town it’s either silent to speak to each other or Jack FM 94.5 where they play a bit of everything!

I guess it’s legal what Taylor Swift did. It’s odd but it’s legal.

I’m not reading this he’s a dinosaur now. Not every rock band wants to be Motley Crue. Sure they were successful, but what needs to change is newer/unknown groups, of any genres, can’t afford to tour as many places they’d like to & not everyone wants to hear rock music, country music is what the majority wants!

Then Edwin left. I prefer Brian anyways. Edwin wanted to be in the spotlight & had little to no input on what the lyrics would be.
Easily my favourite I Mother Earth song. First single/video with new singer, Brian Byrne. This album is not available on iTunes. “Blue Green Orange” album.


I know Tool covered this live my brother remembers it as well I had that version on Napster, when it was all the rage, can’t find it now though

CONTEST SHOWS/REALITY SHOWS

Wednesday, January 28th

Let’s get some more people on board? http://www.amillionmilesawayblog.com Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a youtube link, that is always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website. For those who have subscribed, THANK YOU! I recommend that when you get an email from the site you may want to come to the site.

Why? Why are most new TV show a talent contest? We we’re watching the premier of a reality show Monday night. I don’t like reality shows. Most of these types of shows have judges. A singing show, a dancing show, a building show, etc. So the “judges” ,as this one did also, say “…here’s the top however many we find suitable for you to vote on………..”? That’s as far away from reality as you can get in my eye! Yes, I have one eye that’s always open since Kim threatens me every night that she’ll smother me with a pillow if I snore! I have a great idea for a reality show! Let’s see who can watch paint dry the longest & we’ll eliminate the contestants if they’re looking at the paint the wrong way! I’m gonna be rich with an idea like that! Tell your friends, it’ll hit a major network on Friday or early next week. We have 100s of channels on TV & during the day the only thing on during the day is “The Ellen Degeneres Show” that I record every day to watch when Kim comes home from work. Thank goodness for DVDs, Blu-rays, Netflix, or the Late night shows I record & watch the next day(Jimmy Fallon & Conan) I like Jimmy Kimmel it’s just too much TV. At least whatever “Country’s Got Talent” tells you in the title it’s a talent contest. I’ll take a scripted show any day over a talent show. Kim likes them so I leave the room when some contest/talent show comes on. I wonder how celebrities became famous without these shows? I’m not picking on any particular show, though it may sound that way, it just happened to premiere recently. I’m just bored with these types of shows. Who’s to say what’s good & what’s bad? It’s art, so it’s subjective. “You like the winner? I was all in for contestant 147”! Why do I need to keep up on the Kardashians? Why do I know who Paris Hilton is? It’s television, it’s subjective, & I choose not to watch most of those shows. I watch less TV when there’s a hot new “reality” show.

REGINA STRIP CLUB?

That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a youtube link, that is always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website.

We we’re watching the local CTV news Monday night, they reported there was a debate going on about Regina having a strip club. I’ve never been to a strip club & have no desire to enter one. I say build it! If people want to go to it they will & it won’t affect the lives of those of us who don’t go. This could be a good thing, more jobs for more people, boost the economy, or it might tank & shut down. Just legalize a few of the hot topics at the moment. If the people want something, legalize it & see what happens in the following 2 years? Who knows/cares what happens. Let people make their own decisions if you agree with them or not. Obviously there are things that should remain illegal. But, why waste time & energy on stuff that doesn’t cause a stir for other people? I don’t vote because politicians seem to waste their time on petty little things & I don’t believe that will change. Do you want them to do whatever illegally or legally? Either way it’s likely gonna happen?

I don’t like classifying metal into it’s sub genres. I just like to leave it as metal. I’m going to like it or hate it, it’s music. Same deal with soft rock, rock or hard rock. Same “stuff”, different piles. This is what sparked my conversation!

I think Ian Thornley made his “Brothers in Arms” by Dire Straits, like he wanted to. They don’t sound the same, but they have a very similar feel/vibe/groove. It’s heavy but it’s not at the same time, if that makes sense?

We have to talk about cancer. I’m fine & all is good with me. I’m so sick of taking pills at night when I go to bed, then more first thing when I wake up. I just want this cancer crap to go away! I left the Wascana Rehabilitation Center, Thursday July 26th 2012 & I’m still taking medication. Everytime I take my medication I sit & wonder “Why?” I’m alive & I’m 6 years cancer free, so why should I continue to take medication? The doctors at the Pasqua Hospital said I was cancer free December 31st 2008. This year my cancer agency doctor wants me to return to MRI scans instead of CAT- Scans. She says there’s less radiation involved with MRIs! Yeah I loved those……NOT! There’s a reason I switched to CAT-Scans. I’m terribly claustrophobic MRI machines are very small, loud & freak me out!

Did anyone else see this on SNL? I honestly thought the dancers were a joke? I was waiting for someone to crash the set & start a real performance. Shortly afterwards I turned it off. Kevin Hart’s monologue was the best part of the show for me & I’m pretty sure I’m not Sia’s demographic? White male about to turn 35 & likes metal or hard rock mostly. I’ve recently seen SNL actor’s in the exact attire for a skit. I was watching since I find Kevin Hart hilarious & I always record SNL.

Russell Martin (new catcher for the Blue Jays)

Did he say he’s “going to work” on catching a knuckle ball? Are the Blue Jays actually going to practice & “coach” their players? They’re so good……………………why change anything………………….

SINGLES ON iTUNES?

Share this link & pass it around to those that might enjoy. Tell them how to subscribe from a desk top or laptop computer! Let’s get some more people on board? http://www.amillionmilesawayblog.com Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a youtube link, that is usually open. I’ve hit 23 subscribers! Let’s keep going!
Am I the only one that thinks this is ridiculous? If I have the album I don’t want a single from said album. I want the B-Side(s). I can see that people want to buy individual songs, but if they just want that one song from the full album, they can do that with the beauty of iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc. Get a few songs they want from the full album. I never get 1 song on iTunes, 99.9% of the time. If I don’t like the full album, then I usually dismiss said album. I can see both sides but I want the option to buy B-Sides since most purchases are from iTunes inn the comfort of my home. This along with music being cheap or free is something iTunes should address. Before they hike the price of songs/albums. I really don’t care if you personally get your music from a streaming site, that’s another personal choice. I prefer to own what I listen/watch so music for me is iTunes. Movies & TV series are an entire different ball of wax. When my DVD/Blu-ray shelf is full, iTunes it is, if it’s not on Netflix!
Muse in the studio!!!

Rock It Out Blog “How to become a heavy metal fan”

I like Rob Zombie & White Zombie (his former band). He may not look the part, but he is really intelligent & always a fantastic person to interview!
http://loudwire.com/rob-zombie-finishes-sixth-album/

He’s “All about that bass” drum/kick drum.

“Stick to your Guns” too heavy or something about them rubs me the wrong way. Not sure what the right way to rub me is? Just don’t rub me, you might have cooties!

I got the new Fall Out Boy and it’s OK. I’d give it a B, not a B- or B+, just a B. 3.5 stars out of 5.

I don’t like KISS’ music. Gene Simmons does more than enough promotion for them as it is. With all of that said, here’s some KISS news.

The “Tremonti II” album is mastered!

“Rock needs to change or it will die” I agree but Fall Out Boy isn’t what I’d call a “rock” band? http://www.kerrang.com/27308/k1552-fall-boy-rock-change-will-die/

I didn’t grow up listening to ’80s hair metal & I just don’t enjoy that music. So, better late than never for me. What I’ve heard is stuff I don’t want/need to hear.

Could play it & sing it but not at the same time.

Filled in for Tyler Wanner in Chris Messer’s group. Learned a TON of polkas, 2 step, & other songs.

Played & sang for fun. Yes, I covered Foo Fighters cover of Paul McCartney & Wings, pretty much the same.
