How many deaths by musicians overdosing on drugs will it take before somebody finally stands up & says “Hey, it’s illegal & it could easily kill me?”

Halestorm shared it…If you like Halestorm they recommended “The Pretty Reckless”. They have 2 albums on iTunes. I prefer the 2nd album & rarely listen to the 1st album. So you might want to check out “Going to Hell” which is their 2nd album?

 

That’s great but Foo Fighters didn’t really have a hiatus. They were “The Sound City Players” backing the big name musicians for the documentary made by Dave Grohl.

This is the problem with the music industry at the moment. Now you not only have to be talented, which is no longer what music labels look at necessarily, you have to be rich, before you get a shot to be famous. If you don’t have the money, it’s likely going to be a long uphill battle if you want to be a musician.

Pitcher Marcus Stroman on his former team mate David Price.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/stroman-it-would-be-cool-if-blue-jays-fans-booed-price/

 

The Toronto Blue Jays have a new President who hired a new General Manager. They worked together for many seasons in Cleveland for the Cleveland Indians both in the same roles. Yes, Cleveland has been a very mediocre team the last X number of years. If you look at the attendance of Cleveland or their win-loss numbers, both the new President, Mark Shapiro, & GM, Ross Atkins, have terrible resume’s. Mark Shapiro should hold a press conference so the fans get to know him & what he’s going to do with Canada’s baseball team? Right now the majority of Blue Jays fans are throwing him under the bus. Why not wait & see what happens in 2016? If the Jays don’t make the playoffs, then judge him. They had more revenue last season than ever before. Money should not be an issue, the budget is set at the same amount it was last year $145,000,000. If more money is needed, it shouldn’t be a problem. Mark Shapiro is being painted as a villain at the moment, give him a year THEN whine & complain if you want to? If the team doesn’t make the playoffs, don’t buy the merchandise, don’t watch the games, & don’t go to the games. He’ll be on a very short leash. I’m guessing 3 years at most if the owner doesn’t see any improvement. It’s December 23rd at the moment & we’re talking about baseball, that’s a good sign for the city & organization. I feel sorry for Bob McCown every Monday & Friday when he takes calls that are 95% irate Blue Jay fans asking questions he doesn’t have the answers to. Sit back, keep quiet, & wait to see what happens? It’s a transition period for Mark Shapiro & Ross Atkins, at least give them a full season instead of a 2 month off season?

 

Completely different topic. My father & his co-workers all (8?) an Apple Watch from their employer as their Christmas gift. That’s awesome, that’s great! My dad works at a home theater/technology installer place. He designs whatever is being installed, does the estimate & sends out the installers with all of the info to install the speakers, TV(s), security system, network, USB outlets, etc.

 

They sell HUGE TVs like 84 inch curved HD TVs, yet every mobile device is getting smaller? There were laptops, tablets/iPads, iPad air, iPhones 1-6, Google glasses, & now a ½ screen on your wrist that you squint at to see & now you say to yourself “Ooooh, I got an email! I’ll have to check it on a larger device”. I’m not discounting the Apple Watch, I’m sure it has it’s pros & cons, but now you have a watch that will let you know you’ve received an email, facebook PM, a tweet, text, instagram, linkedin, etc. but it’s really small, so you’ll have to check it out on a larger screen? Pros & cons for all of these advancements in technology. Maybe it’s because I have one eye, but that watch screen is tiny? Weird?

 

Halestorm shared it on facebook. I REALLY like this band!

Surprise! I have another question for whoever is reading this. Does cover artwork really matter in the case of digital music? I like having a tangible product like a CD in my hand, but I’m out of physical space for it. I now get almost all of my music from iTunes. The only time I see the artwork is when I purchase the album & before my screen saver kicks in on my TV after 1 ½ songs? If I’m listening to my iPod, I rarely look at the artwork. Into my pocket or beside me on the bed it goes. How much does the artwork on an album matter to you in this digital era of music? Artwork is likely a reason I became a printing press operator. At the end of a shift I could hold a piece of paper & say “Hey, I helped in the making of this product!”.

I guess all of this Guns n’ Roses reunion talk could likely be true. They can do their thing, pretend it’s 1987 & I’ll be way over here in 2016 when it happens. I was so happy when the home town Roughriders started playing a song from 2013 instead of 1987’s “Welcome to the Jungle” at kickoff!! I’m likely the odd one on this though.

The BIG sports story of 2015. 22 years with no playoff games. Yeah, but baseball sucks. “Oh, there’s a bandwagon, where do I jump on?” I’ve been watching the Blue Jays since 1990, that’s when I jumped on & stayed on. ALL bandwagon jumpers are more than welcome!

2015 TOP 10 ALBUMS, FOR ME!

First off, it was a really great year in music for me. Even better than 2014. That being said this was a VERY difficult list to compile, which I’m positive will have a TON of honourable mentions. I started to make this list in early-mid November. It has changed many times!!! Here is my top 10 albums of the year. Quite a few of the honourable mentions could have easily made the list!

This is it. I’m done for the year, no more blog posts this year! I’ll catch you on January 4th with a post. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & whatever else you celebrate. For the non religious folk, enjoy the time off at work!

  1. Pentatonix “Pentatonix”

  1. Halestorm “Into the Wild Life”

  1. Tremonti “Cauterize”

  1. Highly Suspect “Mister Asylum” LANGUAGE!!!!

  1. Trivium “Silence in the Snow”

  1. Finger Eleven “Five Crooked Lines”

  1. Lamb of God “VII: Strum Und Drang” This album has some stuff I have never heard on any Lamb of God album. He actually sings a bit, there is a guest singer, & they also use the talk box effect on a guitar track, where you shape the guitar sound with your mouth into letters using rubber tube into a microphone. I’ve never tried it.

  1. Coheed & Cambria “The Color Before the Sun” LANGUAGE!!!

  1. Ian Fletcher Thornley “Secrets” Not much on www.youtube.com Live version of the title track!

  1. Zac Brown Band “Jekyll + Hyde”! Wait before you lose your mind? Yes, it’s a country music band, but it’s not a country music album. Pop, jazz, orchestral, drinking tunes, etc. This was the most diverse album I heard this year by far.

Honorable Mentions that could have easily made the list, a few released late in the year I didn’t really get a chance to digest….

Foo Fighters “Saint Cecilia EP”

Eagles of Death Metal “Zipper Down”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds “Chasing Yesterday”

Walk off the Earth “Sing it all Away”

Sevendust “Kill The Flaw”

Third Ion “13/8 bit”

Meg Myers “Sorry”

Iron Maiden “The Book of Souls”

Clutch “Psychic Warfare”

Barenaked Ladies “Silverball”

A. D. D. “Core”

Puscifer “Money Shot”

The Agonist “Eye of Providence”

These were released in 2015 & just didn’t live up to my expectations. Muse is good musically but the lyrics become redundant. My Morning Jacket is awesome live, the albums leave me wanting to hear them live. Fall Out Boy just pales compared to their previous release “Save Rock n’ Roll”. I still listen to these albums, just not as often as I thought I would.

Muse “Drones”

My Morning Jacket “The Waterfall”

Fall Out Boy “American Beauty/American Psycho”

My favourite musical act of the year goes to “Pentatonix” their album, all original other than 1 song of 17 A Capella songs (no instruments) debuted at number 1 on the Billboard charts.

REALITY TV vs. FICTIONAL TV

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Queen” Greatest Hits

LANGUAGE!!!!

I posted a blog about “reality” TV in the past & I’d like to explain it in a more detailed way. “Reality” TV is not actually real. I think it should all of it should be on a game show network, because that’s most “reality” TV shows are, game shows! “If you can achieve this task, within these rules & conditions, you’ll win this prize”. Quite a few people like it, and that’s fine. If Kim is watching it, I leave the room usually. Not what I want to see. With a talk show, or news those are REAL EVENTS! If it’s a scripted show it’s like a painter with a blank canvas. A writer or team of writers can go anywhere with whatever topic! I find fictional shows much more interesting along with news & talk shows. No rules or limits, just entertainment. That’s all I want, entertain me. I don’t care for “reality” shows, but that’s just me.

Motley Crue does nothing for me.

Wednesday’s Rock It Out Blog

 

If I want to see baseball, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, Olympics, golf, etc., I’ll watch them. If I want to see fighting I can watch MMA, UFC, boxing or the NHL. If I want to see hockey, I have to wait until I see a European game on TV. The NHL, for me, has been on a steady decline since the late 1990s. I used to really like watching the NHL, now it’s just a channel to pass. It’s more about pummeling the opponent to within inches of death? Anybody ever consider scoring? These 3-2 games suck since the players are more focused on beating the other guy bloody than beating the opposing team on the score board!

Royal Blood opened for Foo Fighters in Calgary, Finger Eleven was here for a show, Ed Sheeran as well. I think In Flames were in Saskatoon this year. I saw Third Ion at the Exchange earlier this year as well as Into Eternity I think ? There’s likely more!

 

I can’t believe this is still a problem? This should have been resolved 15 years ago. You can but do others want to?

Yeah, there’s no such thing as global warming. Especially when you live in Saskatchewan, with little to no snow on the ground in mid December.

Megadeth is playing in Moose Jaw tonight. I found out last night that the arena in Moose Jaw holds less people than the one here in Regina. Our arena holds 6,200 people, Moose Jaw’s arena holds 4,456, Saskatoon’s arena holds 14,311. So why are big name acts like Megadeth not playing in Regina, but in Moose Jaw? Motley Crue played there last year as well with Big Wreck opening for them? I don’t understand it? Could be the sound, the price of the venue, the backstage area, etc. All I can say is that a road trip to Moose Jaw is much better than another trip to Saskatoon! Saskatoon is a very boring drive.
