Connie Kaldor at The Exchange in Regina. Almost all of the Chemical Horizon, the band I was in until I got cancer, shows were at The Exchange. A couple of shows were at The Gaslight & The Distrikt. The Distrikt for me was pretty much the same for me as playing at Wembley Stadium for Dave Grohl. I saw so many great bands there! That was probably the most nerve racking experience for me on stage. A “Don’t screw this up” experience. There aren’t many places in Regina for original rock/metal bands to play. The Exchange, The Distrikt (which is no more), The Gaslight & occasionally The Riddel Center at the university. I guess we also played once at The Owl, the university bar, in a battle of the bands thing.

I have an issue on the use of cell phones. When you see a “fail” video on youtube that’s fine, it’s hilarious. In a real life or death situation most people whip out their phone to get it on video? Who the heck stands there taking a video with a cell phone while someone might be dying? Maybe put the phone down & see if you can help? Remember, it’s a phone as well, not just a video camera.

A cover of Foo Fighters’ “Congregation” pretty good too!

Cancer update? I’m a 6 years & 4 months cancer free. I’m in a wheelchair, with an eye patch over my left eye to prevent double vision but I’m alive. I fell on Monday. Moved to far forward on the couch to use my transfer pole. Did I hurt myself? No. Will I fall again? Probably. Have I ever hurt myself in a fall? Yes, once or twice out of 10 times.

Tremonti on new album. Yes, this is old you’ve seen it before.
http://loudwire.com/mark-tremonti-new-album-cauterize-more/?trackback=tsmclip

Why are they so far in to the tour without 1 of the 2 albums released on all websites (not for pre-order on iTunes)? Barenaked Ladies came out of nowhere & already have an iTunes pre-order, a release date, & a tour? I knew more about Tremonti being in the studio than I did about Barenaked Ladies being in the studio & having the recording process going so fast. Is Tremonti going to finish the tour before the album is released? What comes first the chicken or the egg? Who’s the chicken or egg?

The fancy shmancy Alter Bridge box set my mother ordered for me in November of 2013 for my birthday in January of 2014 came last summer/fall. I was lucky. Other people haven’t received anything for an expensive & rare box set (3000 made). Each box set contains multiple DVD interviews, 4 vinyl records, all 4 CDs, a DVD of music videos, a coffee table book & has your name engraved on the front. It was supposed to be released in January of 2014. No wonder those who haven’t received it want a refund.

I like “Clutch” quite a bit!
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-29/clutch-aim-for-diverse-11th-album

These are just cool videos. Music is subjective as are the videos. I think the concept of having famous actors in the videos were very smart decisions.

So far Smashing Pumpkins, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, A.D.D. & Halestorm have released their albums. My Morning Jacket will be released on Tuesday. Barenaked Ladies’ will be released on June 2nd. So we’re waiting for Finger Eleven, Into Eternity, Third Ion, Tremonti, Tool & whatever else pop’s up.

By the way, it’s Willie Nelson’s birthday today. I’m assuming he’ll have “special” brownies or cake.

This is why I don’t like physical formats of music, they take up room I don’t have now. Digital music doesn’t take up room, & it’s VERY convenient. Napster beat up rock music. Spotify, Pandora radio, iTunes, etc. finished it off. Rock music isn’t dead, it’s just harder to find now.

If we get rid of streaming & torrent sites, more people will have to pay for music like it should be! Who came up with the idea that anything should be free? Should I go into a restaurant & order steak & lobster & demand that it be free?

I’ve been told it’s just random as to who’s cell phone this can be read on. Hopefully it works on yours??

Cassettes, Vinyl, &, CDs? There’s a reason the music industry switched to digital files. Convenience, doesn’t take up physical space & no worrying about an album getting scratched. More groups might be better off signing a distribution deal like Foo Fighters did? The problem with iTunes is that the rich/label get richer & the artist(s) get pennies for an album download. The music industry needs to figure something out fast or your new favourite artist won’t be around for long, unless they can afford to tour their butt off! It’s really a catch 22. They can’t sell enough albums to have money & they don’t have money to tour & get the word out themselves.

Third Ion news/review.
http://disagreement.net/reviews2015/thirdion_138bit.html

I’m waiting for a few albums that have yet to announce a release date/pre-order on iTunes. Third Ion, Into Eternity, Tremonti (already touring), Tool (in studio), Stone Temple Pilots, Barenaked Ladies (in studio), etc. Yeah, because I don’t have enough music on my iTunes as it is already only 1,353 albums!? Tough to listen to them all in a year. When Kim’s not here the home stereo is playing music she doesn’t like! If she is here it plays her music or something we both enjoy Dixie Chicks, Jack Johnson, Barenaked Ladies, Ben Harper, Paul Brandt, jacksoul, etc.

Lemmy doesn’t have a drivers license. If the car is moving it’s a stunt double. Lemmy is pictured in the close up shots.

Yes, I still exercise 5-6 days a week. I’m either doing walking with a walker, practicing stairs or my floor routine. My floor routine is typically what I do. I prefer to walk once a week in our underground parkade or practice stairs once a week in our condo. We also have a recumbent exercise bike in the condo workout room but it’s usually being used. My floor routine consists of 300 crunches in sets of 50, yoga for as long as possible & 40 push ups. Mondays & Fridays the push ups are difficult, I usually get to 15 at most on those days. I try to do 2 sets of 20.

Gotta say “Undateable” is HILARIOUS!

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

It has come to my attention that you can only read tiny bits from the beginning of the blog on your Cell Phone until you hit a youtube link. Not sure about tablets or iPads though?

American Idol. I always say I wont watch it then, Kim watches it & ropes me in. All of that being said I’m done, haven’t watched it the last few weeks. I love the addition of Harry Connick Jr. constructive criticism & I always tend to agree with him. The entire idea of “reality contest shows” is just losing me. I don’t understand why so many things are now a “competition”. Example : I was rooting for Qaasim & Quentin, they’re both gone I hear. It’s a subjective show to begin with. You get to pick out of the top 10 or however many the judges say are good enough. Great, but I wanted singer number 40 or the kid down the street who is too young or old to meet the age bracket? Even “The Voice” is getting stale for me. I think I’m just done with “reality” TV in general.

Quentin’s right & so is Harry. It’s whack & it is a competition, a popularity contest. The best singer is very subjective. Quentin shouldn’t have said that to the judges, but I’m glad he said it publically. Remember Caleb from last year? American Idol finished in late May I think & immediately after Caleb was declared the winner they announced his album would be released in August of that year! That’s pretty fast! It was written by I don’t know who & watered down for mass appeal. One song from his album then during the money making show.

………….and a spot on cover of Aerosmith on his album. He also sang this on the show.

Songs I like. “Dream Theater” I have 14 of their albums on iTunes but I’m stuck on “Systematic Chaos”. I haven’t listened to all 14 albums yet just 3 of them including “Systematic Chaos”, “Self Titled”, & “Images & Words”. These guys graduated the Berkley School of Music. Same school the original members of “Big Wreck” dropped out of to form Big Wreck. Yes, these are loooooong songs. Wait until I hit “Opeth”!

Scott Stapp was a victim of “Creed’s” success? “Creed” members or fans didn’t force drugs & alcohol into his system, from what I know? Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips & Brian Marshall aren’t addicted to drugs or alcohol. Kurt Cobain wasn’t a victim of “Nirvana’s” success. Pat Smear, Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic weren’t victims of “Nirvana’s” success. Heroin & a shotgun are the reason for Kurt Cobain’s death. The other band members are victims of what the 2 frontman did.

And this is the first of 2 reasons I don’t listen to “black” metal.

They burn churches over sea & it’s not music I enjoy.

Tool pokes fun at U2. Great! How many albums has U2 released since 2006 & are far more successful than Tool? Tool hasn’t released anything since 2006. I like Tool & U2.
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-22/tool-poke-fun-at-u2-after-record-store-day-mix-up

OK yes U2 got a lot of heat for this album. It’s the 3rd U2 album since 2005 though. U2 & Tool are 2 totally different bands. It’s like comparing apples to oranges, not one is better than the other, it’s subjective.

Doesn’t everyone turn up the vehicle radio & sing along to their favourite song & think you’ve done a fantastic rendition of the song? I do & my voice is terrible. Kim’s is much better!

If I want to watch a hockey game I watch European hockey. If I want to watch a “fight”, I watch the NHL. If I want to watch a real fight I watch boxing never UFC/MMA. If I want to watch football, I watch the CFL. NFL, NO! If I want to cry & watch baseball I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible. No basketball ever, not really my thing. Blue Jays baseball & CFL football only. As much as possible! 162 baseball games or 162 CFL games roughly. Kim hates the summer because of this.

What do Kevin Pillar & Ryan Goins have to do to be on the field everyday for the Blue Jays? I think it’s a good problem to have! I’d hate to be the field manager or the General manager.

Too bad they will be on the bench when Mike Saunders, left fielder acquired in the off season, is healthy & game ready. Pillar will be the 4th outfielder on the bench and Goins will be a utility player on the bench, which is really sad to say.

Barry Bonds & A-Roid are the last 2 baseball cheaters I’d want in my corner.. The home run record in a season is 61 set by Roger Maris. A-Roid, Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, Jose Canseco, etc. should just keep to themselves, they used steroids, got caught & I don’t want to hear a whisper from them, EVER!!! Roger Clemens (pitcher) was caught as well & almost went to jail. The late ’90s & early 2000s baseball players should be ashamed & banned from baseball for infinity. I hope the brand new MLB commissioner takes the steroid issue into consideration as these former players are now about to be on the ballot for the Hall of Fame.
