A bit about how FANTASTIC my father is, 1-800-George! I was in Little League as a kid. My father coached my team for 1 or 2 years? Since nobody else would coach. He knew very little about the game. We won 1 game over the course of a season or 2. Didn’t matter to us much we had fun or at least I did. The most important thing was that we had fun, I got to hang out with my dad while playing my favourite sport. I didn’t/don’t care if we won or lost. It was just cool having my dad as my baseball coach. At practice, games, in the dugout, on our own time with dad hitting ground balls to me to work on my fielding in the back yard or at the park by my parents house! It was just AWESOME!

I grew up on his music & now he’s a fan of Foo Fighters because of my brother & I. Dire Straits, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, etc. Might not be on my radar without him. My dad is just flat out AWESOME! He’s “My Hero”

Yep it’s been a “Halestorm” of a week for me since Tuesday. Home stereo & iPod. I still listen to Foo Fighters once a day & Big Wreck about 3 times a week. Last night I was listening to “Halestorm” finished the album & wanted to hear ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds” album. I fall asleep to my iPod.

I really like ‘Conan’ I record his show, Jimmy Fallon & Ellen Degeneres everyday! Kim’s at work so I record it at 2:00pm so we can watch it together! This is one of the funniest bits I’ve seen.

Look at what ‘Pearl Jam’ did for Andy Wood’s mother! “Temple of the Dog” was an album dedicated to Andy Wood in 1989 or 1990.

‘Halestorm’ has been posting videos of this band. ‘The Pretty Reckless’. They have 2 albums on iTunes. They sound somewhat like ‘Halestorm’

What’s your favourite song by ‘The Rolling Stones’? Hard to pick one!

I’m not a huge fan of ‘The Rolling Stones” but they do have quite a few catchy songs. I’ve got a greatest hits album, that’s all I need or I add a song to it on iTunes if I think of one.

‘Poutine Tornado’. Looks tasty but also looks like a heart attack waiting to happen.

Very cool story shared by TSN. I’ve never heard of this disease? Johnathan deals with it very well. Sucks that this is how he’ll feel for the rest of his life.

Songs I like. I have “The Devin Townsend Project”, “Def Leppard” and others I like but I’d just be choosing random songs. I don’t know the titles for the majority of these groups. “Disturbed” something I listen to maybe once a year. I bought 2 albums & borrowed 3 from a friend. WARNING POSSIBLY LANGUAGE INVOLVED???

Didn’t even know they covered U2? That’s how much I listen to them! I’ll take ‘Tears for Fears”, “Genesis” & “U2” any day.
