WEEKEND UPDATE

I’m pretty sure I’ll be on a “Trivium” kick for a while with their new album leading the charge. The “Sevendust” albums seem to get better for me with each release. The “Clutch” album is really good too. I’d say my late night Thursday shopping on iTunes was nothing short of success!

I don’t think fans would care in this case or any case “Finger Eleven” were called “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” originally. They changed their name along with their drummer & sound. I don’t think a band could change their name without a change in their sound or a member change. Dave Grohl doesn’t like the name “Foo Fighters” but I don’t think a name change would matter?

Rock It Out Blog from Friday. “Kid A” was Radiohead’s 4th album & the reason I stopped being a Radiohead fan. “Pablo Honey”, “The Bends”, & “OK Computer” were the first 3 albums & they were each better, to me, with each release. “Kid A” was a very steep & uncontrolled downfall.

I would go so far a calling the 2nd & 3rd album easily among my favourite albums, not a group of amazing singles, but 2 entire albums front to back!

“Lamb of God” cover. After watching it, I still don’t know what a “hurdy gurdy” is? She plays it very well though! The name sounds like something “The Swedish Chef” from the Muppets would have in his kitchen?

Really they’re bickering over the name of a less famous Motley Crue?

I still miss Robin Williams

Someone needs to say aka The President along with many other high level politicians in the USA, “OK, you can’t play nice! Hand over the guns & have a cookie or we’ll shoot you! We have guns too!” Maybe I’m just a stupid 35 year old white male in Canada but this is WAY MORE than enough!

OK, but there are more on the way & this is extremely one sided so what albums do you like?

15 years ago Saturday, Green Day released ‘Warning’

http://diffuser.fm/green-day-release-warning/?fblw

I’ll say it! Baseball players make WAY TOO MUCH MONEY!!!!!!! The Toronto Blue Jays have or had the 3rd highest payroll last year I believe at $128.000.000 That means $128 million isn’t enough money to pay for high quality players to even hope they have a chance at the playoffs?

At the moment, as the Blue Jays will start playoff baseball on Thursday, every fan is wondering if David Price will sign, likely, his last contract & finish his career as a Blue Jay. I’m not worried about that at all it’s a 50/50 chance & he’ll likely go to the highest bidder for somewhere around $30 million/year for 7 years. If he does sign with the Jays, what happens in the off season next year? Bautista & Encarnacion’s contracts are done? They’re both going to ask for more money? Who do you cut loose? Can you afford all of the players? I believe SS Tulowitzki & Catcher Russell Martin & maybe 3B Josh Donaldson are already signed for the next 4 or 5 years at $15-$25 million/year. If David Price signs with the Jays, I would think Edwin or José could end up on different team, unless the Blue Jays can just throw ridiculous amounts of money at the 2 of them?

I’ll make up some different type of pitch, play one year, win 10 games & retire with one year played for $5 million & laugh all the way to the bank!

I’ve never really understood Bill Murray’s humour

How are “Rage Against The Machine” still a band since they split in the early 2000s & have played one show in that time?

I don’t like getting caught up in politics or big issues. Do what you want, don’t hurt people physically , mentally, or emotionally. Unfortunately that’s not always the case. That is one of the reasons I don’t vote. Nothing will change over night, as much as people want it to.

Scott Stapp (Creed singer) discusses his bi-polar issues

Songs I like. “Sanctity” I didn’t go out looking for them, I just stumbled upon them before I had cancer? All I can see on iTunes is the album I own “Road To Bloodshed” released on April 7th 2007.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/road-to-bloodshed/id252682019

There is another “Sanctity” on iTunes, but I’m quite certain it’s not the same group. So don’t be misled!

If you’re getting this on Facebook, please share it?
