The world has gone crazy. OK people 30 & up. In elementary school did or high school. Did you ever hear the word “Jihad” or “ISIS”? They’re new to me since GWB was president. Do I care what religion, if any, a person follows? Not at all! No we live in a world where there are “Holy wars”, WHY?

Song from “Absolution” released in 2003

Chris Henderson of Regina. Country music with no twang!

Lollapalooza full line up for 2015. A pile of bands I haven’t heard of after Sam Smith.
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/03/lollapalooza-reveals-2015-lineup/

Too bad Sam Smith has to pay royalties to Tom Petty. If you take Tom Petty’s song & make the 3 chords flat and slower you get the Sam Smith song. At least they settled out of court.

Yes, Donald Trump & Gene Simmons invented everything

I hate the word “jam” in reference to playing music with other musicians. I don’t & never did “jam” with other musicians. “Jam” is what I put on toast, that is all.

If you like “Paramore” you may like “Marmozets”

At least Scott Weiland admitted his mistake & apologized for it.

I totally agree! I like the hunt/search for new bands or albums.

I think Foo Fighters’ “The Colour & The Shape”, Radiohead’s “The Bends” “OK Computer”, Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, Pearl Jam’s “Ten”, Beck’s “Mellow Gold”, & Soundgarden’s “Superunknown” are all going to be among the classic rock albums of the 1990s joined by many more. Not the best albums of the ’90s but the most popular.

^^Same album as the song “Breed”.

What do I mean by The Pool? My physiotherapist took me to the pool in the WRC to teach me how to walk. The pool is warm there almost like you were having a warm bath not urine! For roughly a year that’s where I went for physiotherapy. 5 feet of water, a hand rail and my physiotherapist there since I didn’t/don’t have any sense of balance that’s why I’m in a wheelchair and why we have 2 “Stripper poles” here, one by the couch & one by the bed. When Kim comes home from work I give her a little dance! We also have a grab bar in each of our 2 washrooms to help me. I can stand as long as I hold on to something. I shower in a shower seat. I use the grab bar in our on suite washroom to get in & out of the shower. Like I said I can do a TON of thing other people can, I just have to do them differently. It takes me about 15 minutes to shower once I’m in & Kim doesn’t have to help me or even be here if I’m in the shower. We have a walk in shower in our on suite washroom. The main washroom has a bath tub in it.

I did hit a small achievement today, I beet my record of crunches & did 260 today along with some planking, yoga & 40 push ups as usual. My shirts are beginning to be be too small A) Because of my stubborn belly and B) my chest & shoulders.

Songs I like. I have to skip a few like The Commitments soundtrack & Corrosion of Conformity. Only because I haven’t given them a good listen to yet. I’ve listened to them but not recently, & I like what I hear. So here’s some “Counting Crows” for you.

I listened to the 2nd album a TON when it came out. Still listen to it a bit, like once every 2 months. All I have on my computer are these 2 CDs, I think I have 2 more that I wasn’t a fan of?
