WEEKEND UPDATE

I’m going to leave this first paragraph until I have 100 subscribers

Really please help me out?

PLEASE share this link & pass it around to those that might enjoy. Tell them how to subscribe from a desktop 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. I’ll do this so nobody else has to. I’m on 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. Up there are instructions on how to subscribe. I’m at 30 subscribers so all 30 of you please help me out?
Even though you subscribe to the blog I always recommend coming to the site to read it in case someone comments on a topic. Comments are always welcomed. If you’re using “Internet Explorer” or “Google Chrome” as a web browser the http://www.youtube.com links will be open to show you the title, artist & a still photo of the video. I have to switch between the 2 since the audio doesn’t work all of the time on one of them.

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle!

These will get much shorter. Blue Jays spring training games start on Tuesday, I’ll be spending less time in here & more time on the couch, when the regular season starts April 13th , they play almost everyday they get 2 days off a month all through August & a bit of September.

If it’s a good song to you, who really cares if others don’t like it? You don’t like Foo Fighters or Big Wreck, that’s cool. There are many fans complaining about Foo Fighters new album & the In Flames album. That’s fine with me, I like them. There’s very little Metallica I enjoy, does that really matter to their fan base? I don’t think it would?

Best advice I’ve ever received, one from my physiotherapist Robin Dowel-Macpherson and one from my father & one from my mother Barb Fraser. A) “Will this matter to you in 20 years?” B) “Why waste your energy being angry?” C) “Let it go, it gets heavier every second you hold on to it” All of us should do that more often, me included!

There you have it Aerosmith inspired by Foo Fighters!!

You’ve heard of Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, The Cars, Soundgarden, but not Big Wreck? They should at least be mentioned when speaking about Soundgarden. New Big Wreck video.

The Grammy Awards actually don’t mean much to me either, I see as more of a popularity contest.

I’ve never really understood the attraction to circle pits where you just run in a circle. I think it’s my age? I’ve been in a few mosh pits, where it’s just chaos & crowd surfing. The last one I was in was in ’99 beside the Saskatoon rink at a one day festival. I broke my nose while Big Wreck was on stage playing this tune…

Why? Why would some sneak in a gun to a concert? Hard rock/metal audience members get a thou-row pat down before the concert. So do the audience members at these shows get one as well?
