Why does a band even have to make them anymore? MTV, Much Music, VH1, etc. don’t play music videos 24 hours a day anymore. I know Much Music plays 1 hour a day of just music videos. So why does anybody have to make a music video? Unless you go to, a Facebook page, or a website, there is a good chance you won’t see it?

What were we up to this weekend? Gerry came down from Saskatoon for his birthday. So on Saturday we went to James & Sherry’s place in the late afternoon, then Brewsters East for dinner, then back here to our place for a few beverages & a visit until 1:00am or so? Sunday, Kim went out for groceries while I watched baseball. We had supper then watched a few episodes of Scandal, 4 episodes left of the 2nd season.

I forgot to turn on the stereo for my workout. I was part way through my workout & then realized it was quiet. “Ah, the remote’s way over there. It can stay there!”. I did make a fruit/vegetable smoothie after though. I just wash & cut up what’s needed then toss it in our Vitamix blender, that usually lasts me 3 or 4 days. My kitchen music was “Dream Theater’s” ‘Awake’ album.

I’m not on a diet. I exercise & watch what I eat. If we go out for a meal on the weekend, I MAKE IT COUNT! If I’m watching baseball or the CFL I have a beer or 2 that’s all, usually it’s water, cranberry juice or black coffee & small amounts of alcohol on “the weekend”.

I still have a list of 4 albums that should be coming out this year yet no release dates at the moment. Tool, I have no idea about, it will be released when it’s done, I’m not holding my breath on that one. Coheed & Cambria will be released October 16th but I’m waiting to hear the iTunes preview before I grab it. LANGUAGE!!!

Jack White vs. The Black Keys? I’m not a fan of either, but really a feud between musicians? Does either one need press at the moment?

“Ghost” has a new video. Never heard of them & I’m pretty sure I don’t need to again.

If you’re getting this through Facebook, feel invited to like & share this! Facebook or the actual website give this a second to load all of the links. Some days is a little wonky?

Songs I like. “The Pretty Reckless” fairly new band for me. They only have 2 albums out that I know of. WARNING!!! LANGUAGE & OTHER R-RATED IMAGERY.
