WEEKEND UPDATE

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Why is iTunes illegal in the U.K.? They made it illegal because of the burning software? We’ve always been able to trade vinyl, 8 tracks, cassettes, & CDs. We we’re also allowed to make mix tapes & mix CDs? Now that’s illegal? So Apple Music, “free” music that you basically rent, can flourish? Once you pay $5.99 for digital music, that you own, now you can’t share it or burn a copy legally in the U.K.? That’s just weird? I really don’t care how you get your music. If it’s through a streaming site, I don’t get it? You pay $9.99 a month for “free” music, if you want to hear a song you downloaded today on Apple Music, in 20 years you may have to continue paying $9.99 a month to hear it in 2035. All of that time you’ve paid $2397.60 to hear the same song from 20 years ago?

Should a contractor do the same? “I built that house 20 years ago. They should pay me monthly until it falls to the ground”. Would you buy the house under that law? I personally wouldn’t. I tend to think Apple should distribute the money made through iTunes & the purchase of iPods needs to be re-evaluated & distributed fairly. They got the idea right, just the disbursement of money is screwed up. We’ve all been able to own our music, but now that’s illegal in the UK?

Jimmy Fallon making cocktails. “What do you do with Apricot Brandy?”  If you’re Kayll Schaefer you catch up to Corey & I in 2002? Through a straw, whatever you’re friend left in the fridge! I don’t know how full the fridge was, but there was free Apricot Brandy in there! Doesn’t everybody get hammered on a Thursday when Friday is optional? Corey & I did.

Is Trivium “thrash” or not?……………wait……………….I don’t care.

So I wake up this morning screaming. I was dreaming. In my dream there was a rat coming at me & Brewster was with me. I was walking & Brewster was on his leash with me. I tried to kick the rat in my dream. I woke up & had kicked my wheelchair & woke up at 7:30 screaming in pain. Brewster was on me instantly to see if I was OK. He’s such a good dog. I fell back to sleep for a few minutes, then woke up for good at 8:00. I don’t have kids, but I don’t really sleep in. On the weekends I’m usually awake by 9:30 during the week I get up either when Kim leaves for work or I wake when she’s showering. Brewster is usually the last 1 in bed!

The Toronto Blue Jays scored half the points the Saskatchewan Roughriders did Saturday night. Blue Jays won their game 15-3 Riders lost 34-31. After 8 games the Roughriders have yet to win 0W-8L. Blue Jays will, at the very least, play a wild card game to get into the playoffs. Riders playoff hope? No, that’s a pipe dream.

Kim did it, we watched “Red Dragon”, the prequel to “Silence of the Lambs”. The movies aren’t as freaky as they were 12 or 13 years ago when I was alone house sitting for my grandparents. Big empty house after watching those movies, then going to bed? I ran up the stairs I was so scarred I’d see Anthony Hopkins behind me, trying to eat me!

20 years ago “Rancid” released “…And Out Come The Wolves”

Foo Fighters retaliate against Kansas City Baptist Church picketers with Rick Astley’s ’80s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up”!

http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-rick-roll-westboro-baptist-church-kansas-city/ because of this tour promo video in 2011. Maybe the picketers should protest outside any building with a public shower, YMCA/YWCA, etc.? Oh, snap the “C” stands for Christians!

Pink Floyd announces they’re done.

Songs I like, “Odds” 4 CDs.
