POINTS FOR PRETTY?

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the new album “Dystopia”

I woke up, layed in bed for longer than I’d like & listened to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

I worked out to “A Perfect Circle” the album “Mer de Noms”

When I was younger I watched figure skating. Mens figure skating, almost always Kurt Browning & Elvis Stojko. At the end of their routine they’re judged by 5 or 6 judges for the technical aspect & then the artistic aspect. Technical aspect sure, did they do the right things at the right time, was each jump accurate, did they fall, etc.? That’s fine, maybe stop at that point. Nope??!! Artistic judgment? Here’s the points for pretty part. Were the costumes good, did the skating have a nice flo to it, etc. Right there 6 people are judging them based on personal perspective………WHY? I’m not a fan of rap or country music……..WHY? Personal perspective, a subjective matter. There’s even metal groups I wont touch because it’s just not what I want to hear. Even when I put my iPod on at night I’ll go through 3 or 4 artists/albums to find what I want to hear at the moment, it’s not “Slayer” or “Lamb of God” 24 hours a day? Maybe it’s “Jack Johnson”, “Ben Harper”, “Harry Connick jr.”, “Nat King Cole, “Elvis Costello”, etc. So why is main stream music shoved down everyone’s throat? It’s not, maybe you’re looking in the wrong place? A TON of the music I like isn’t mainstream & likely won’t get any airtime on AM or FM radio. I look elsewhere!

Since I got this from the “Trivium” facebook page, my preferred “Trivium” song is below.

Off of their 2nd album the first album James & I had heard about them released in 2006. Same year the album “10,000 Days” by Tool was released. Since then “Trivium” have released 5 albums. After a decade, “Tool” can’t release anything but a FANTASTIC/AMAZING album. Which isn’t really difficult for them according to their loyal fan base.

Rick Mercer Report rant

I watch the news on occasion. When I do I learn that 8 people died & reporters are usually reporting that someone is angry at so & so for doing or not doing this? I don’t want to hear it. Did you vote for whoever you’re complaining about? If you did it’s partially your fault. You don’t like it, you do it! For that reason I don’t pay much attention to the news or vote.
