LOOOONG WEEKEND UPDATE

Toronto Blue Jays GM had a busy week between Tuesday July 28th to the trade deadline at 4:00pm Eastern Friday July 31st. 5 new proven players in 4 days for an All-Star short stop & 11 minor league prospects. Blue Jays acquired arguably the best Short Stop in the game, one of the top 5 starting pitchers in the game & a speedy Left fielder, as well as 2 relief/bullpen pitchers. I think the GM deserves a break including a long nap

Lamb of God album review

Leave him alone, I say. It was 21 years ago in April. Photos or no photos, it doesn’t really matter, he’s not going to “comeback” from the dead?

Bruce Springsteen surprise appearance with U2

I’ve heard their name thrown around but never heard any of the music from “Huntress”. Gut reaction, no thanks.

10 songs about going crazy

How was any song from this album not included? He wrote it in as a patient in an insane asylum?

25 most destructive Guns n’ Roses moments. Even they can’t mess up a good song by Paul McCartney & Wings!

Limp Bizkit can though.

^^Even www.youtube.com couldn’t play the entire Limp Bizkit version! Hahahahaha!

Iron Maiden out September 4th on iTunes, no songs to preview

Trivium out October 2nd, not so sure about this song yet?

2 big albums for me, but I’m going to wait to hear more of both before I even think of pre-ordering them. Iron Maiden tune sounds pretty good though.

10 best Foo Fighters

Nope, it’s subjective & being a HUGE fan it’s a few B-Sides for me.

I’ve managed to find 60 B-Sides, quite a few are cover songs. I have about 40 on single CDs. You know with a song from an album & 2 others that didn’t make the cut to be on the album.

I’m getting really tired of ‘Slayer’. I think I’ll take a year or two off from them?

Top 25 punk albums of all time

http://loudwire.com/top-punk-albums-of-all-time/?fb82

I’m not a huge punk fan. I’ve got “Bad Religion” & “The Smalls”, I like them, for me I’d have to go with the watered down “Green Day” ‘Dookie’ album

Story behind the artwork for ‘Nirvana’s’ Nevermind album!

More ‘Led Zeppelin shows? Probably not.

I was expecting a very good album from Mark Tremonti, but his metal/rock album “Cauterize” blew me away.

Disturbed is loud wire’s most anticipated album of the month for August. For me & others that would be setting the bar pretty low. I’m not in my early 20s anymore.

I don’t do album reviews, I recommend stuff I like. Check out the Finger Eleven album “Five Crooked Lines” the last 2 albums were disappointing for me, this feels like more of a return to their first 3 albums just more grown up. The single “Wolves & Doors” for me, is one of the weakest tracks on the album.

New “Dream Theater” album? I didn’t even know! So many surprises this year! It’s coming next year but even that’s just good news!

^^I was hooked on this album when it came out. Everyday at work, I’d listen to it while running my printing press, iPod on in my pocket!

Worst to first Green Day album. I can’t stand “American Idiot”. I’m not a hard core Green Day fan though.

^^Just not my thing.

Pretty quiet weekend here. Some friend came down from Edmonton. There were some Chicken wings that needed to be eaten & some beer that needed to be dealt with. Last night a smoked/BBQ supper out doors wine, beer & an adorable kiddo that has warmed up to “Unkie” Chris. She also put on a dance show after our meal. She’d hit the floor & start kicking her legs then I’d be all “SHE’S BREAK DANCING!”! If she was going to pull off the worm, then she’d blow my mind along with many others!

Day off, couch is looking good to watch some Blue Jay baseball after yesterday’s terrible umpire at home plate! Really, first inning warning to both dugouts after Kansas City throws at the 2nd Blue Jay hitter followed by another hit batter later on, then 2 balls thrown at Josh Donaldson’s head, both in different at bats. Benches cleared, no fight broke out but 2 Blue Jay coach’s & a rookie Blue Jay pitcher tossed from the game after the Blue Jays did nothing in retaliation.

Songs I like. “Muse” Went to a band rehearsal at Todd Bryanton’s, went to the basement to set up my gear & he had “Muse’s” 2nd studio album playing. “Is this Radiohead?” I asked. “It’s Muse” he replied then I went out the next day & bought the CD I heard. Now I have all of the Muse albums on CD other than their recent release “Drones” which I was quite disappointed with, I was expecting more from it.

If Matthew Bellamy wasn’t such a great musician & singer, it may have been a 1 listen & delete album for me?
