Friday afternoon/evening.

“…It’s so terrible, I’m so terrible, it’s the weekend, I’M OUT OF BEER!……” I guess it’s more of a blessing for dis guy (yes, I know, pun intended), I really don’t drink much at all. I could cut it right out with ease, but I do like the taste. Now it’s 1 drink on a Friday evening & 1 on a Saturday evening. If you like the taste of coconut (Malibu Rum). Mix orange & cranberry juice with a dash of coconut extract! Good fruity drink with no alcohol

I had a moment & a long cry about it, now I’m good. New day!

I think any artist would feel awkward continuing something without a group member. Especially if they have past.

Mike Holmes does some fantastic work repairing what has been royally screwed up & he tells you why it’s messed up & how he’ll fix it in order to “Make it Right”

^^Canadian group from Manitoba, a ’90s Canadian alternative rock group.

If the 2010s are going to be full of ’80s stuff, shouldn’t the 2020s be similar to the ’90s? Seems to be the cycle for everything?

2 Oscar nominated movies this weekend rented from iTunes. I don’t recommend either. We didn’t even pretend to sit through more than 40 minutes of the second one Saturday night. Watch whatever you want though, those 2 movies were a waste of my time. I don’t like trashing anything publically anymore. You can make up your own mind about whatever the topic is. Scientific facts are the only things that I follow like religion. Other than that, it’s all up to you & your choices. This music blog is just the stuff I like & artists who have a large fan base.

Sunday

Went to the “Home Show” this morning. My father’s electronic company, ONAV has a booth their full of big flat screen TVs, curved HD TVs all operated with an iPad mini that they have a charging docking station on a wall. Most booths there are 10 x 10, ONAV’s booth is 20 x 30 with multiple large screen TVs. One of them is an 84” flat screen, & the other that was quite impressive was 4 40” TVs assembled together to make 1 entire TV. So for printing in Regina best bang for you’re buck is http://www.impactprinter.com/ & for electronics TVs, Satellites, Security Systems, Phones, your money, their time, no limit at ONAV http://www.onav.com for instruments & awesome customer service https://www.bsharpmusic.com/ drum kits are hard to come by there, but they will order in pretty much whatever you want! For art/drawings check out this place online in Edmonton. There’s a website that escapes me at the moment it’s in a previous blog from 2015 though.

I like the fact that these groups kick people out of their shows. WARNING, HARSH LANGUAGE!! RIGHT ON POINT THOUGH IF PEOPLE ARE HURTING OTHERS!!

My brother & I were very fortunate. When we were playing in pretty much any band we got smokin’ deals for Monster Cables that we used on stage, when I had them that was all I used free advertising for the product. Our father deals with monster cable a lot. I never had issues with them on stage ever or during our band practice where ever it was. Everything was attached with monster cables guitar wise. Guitar to multiple analog effect pedals & jumpers in between the pedals, to my amplifier.
