THE NEWS

I got up at 5:30am. I watched Jimmy Fallon & Conan after I had my breakfast, started the dishwasher, Kim then left for work, did my exercise, came in here & started writing a post for the blog. I got up since I had to pee I figured I might as well get up.

That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a wwww.youtube.com link, that is always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website. This is for anyone who’s into music & those that are on email & don’t subscribe to a newsletter on a website. I’ll do this so nobody else has to. Everyone has an email, not everyone is on face book or twitter. I’m not on twitter, face book & email only. I’ve found people on face book that I’ve lost track of over the years, so let’s use email to talk with each other.

Regina charity for sick kids could fold soon

There is no longer a big 4 of metal groups, always mentioned as the big 4. It is now the big 5. Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, & now Lamb of God! Just ask Slash.

Nobody really knows of Lamb of God, probably because it’s a small niche market unlike country music, which is a HUGE niche market at the moment & iTunes now, cheap/free music. I don’t like their first self titled album “Burn the Priest” they changed their name to Lamb of God afterwards. I have all 6 of their CDs as well as their 3 CD anthology. I believe they’re in the studio recording their 8th studio album. They aren’t rich & live in mansions. I believe the majority of their sales are from iTunes? They have toured all over the globe as headliners & opened for Metallica, Slayer & they’ve been a part of Gigantour put on by Megadeth. Regular guys from Richmond, Virginia who have sold millions of albums though on iTunes.

Vinyl records? I don’t have room for them & they skip or get scratched. Just like the pile of CDs in our closet? If I have to purchase vinyl I’ll rip them to iTunes, put them on my iPod & throw them away!

I do love this song though. I have the actual album it’s on & a 70’s compilation it’s on. On iTunes & my iPod

Bad news fatal car crash

http://cjme.com/story/regina-artists-victims-fatal-crash/534732

I wonder why I don’t watch the news more than once a week? Probably because it’s usually full of bad news! I watched the CTV Regina news last night at 6:00pm & it sucked BIG time! The entire hour was full of road accidents, people dying, wars where ever, & other depressing stuff. For me I like to be informed with what’s happening in town. It’s full of bad news nothing good! How about a babies were born today, puppies & kittens were born today, some good news for a change! For me ignorance is bliss! If I want to hear or see that someone died or anything like that I’ll find a TV show or a movie to watch! The news is not for me.

Songs/Videos I like. I’m not a huge Aerosmith fan but they do have a bundle of great songs.
