THE OSCARS

 

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”

I woke up to “The 1975” the album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

I totally agree with Chris Rock’s monologue “What are you wearing?” That gets old quick. Just once I’d love to see a big name celebrity show up in shorts & a T-Shirt. If there’s a dress code, khakis, golf shirt, a tie, black runners & wind breaker. Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Cate Blanchet, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, etc. Just do it once. “What are you wearing?” in response “Clothes, from my closet”, “Who are you wearing?” in reply “Walmart”. I’m not going to remember who was wearing what on the red carpet? I do remember “Titanic” won for movie of the year up against 1 of my all-time favourite movies “Good Will Hunting”. I’ll also remember that Eddie Redmayne won for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking. What were they all wearing? I don’t remember………….wait……………….or care!

I’ve heard of 5 of the nominated films, heard of them, I haven’t see them, “The Big Short”, “Mad Max”, “Bridge of Spies”, “The Martian” & “The Revenant”. Maybe the Academy should nominate films people have seen or heard of? I haven’t seen any of the movies nominated for movie of the year, but where’s “Straight Outta Compton”, “Star Wars:Episode VII” or “The Avengers The Age of Ultron”?

Why do I watch award shows? What else is there to watch on a Sunday with some Award show on?

Looking at this list, I don’t have an anticipated release for March. I’m waiting for Tremonti’s “Dust” album in April though!!!

http://loudwire.com/vote-most-anticipated-release-march-2016/

So far this year I’ve purchased 4 albums & I have one on preorder.

I have Rob Zombie on preorder for release in April. I waiting for Alter Bridge “ABV”, Tremonti’s “Dust”, Tool if it’s being released this year but I’m not holding my breath, Into Eternity if it’s released & who knows what else? “Alter Bridge” & “Tremonti” each have incredible album’s to live up to in my opinion, hopefully they can equal their past success?

Third Ion” is or has recorded their album. I’ve also heard “Big Wreck” is in the writing process, so we’ll see when that comes out!

WEEKEND UPDATE

Lazy weekend here. Friday night was Clear the DVR. Saturday I went with my parents to a virtual tour of the new football stadium for the 2017 season, came home & stayed out of Kim’s way while she cleaned. When she cleans it’s how normal people clean twice a year. Everything is moved, clean the spot where it sits & when one room has been finished she might put things back or usually most of them. When she cleans like that, I stay out of the way, she’s on a mission! Sunday has been quiet thus far & likely wont change!

16 years ago AC/DC released the album “Stiff Upper Lip”. The album that sounds the same as the rest of their albums. When you buy AC/DC, Motorhead, Cannibal Corpse, or a TON of other groups’ albums you know what to expect from certain bands, I’m guilty of it also. I like Motorhead, so I know what I’m getting, that’s why I have 2 Greatest Hits albums & their last release “Aftershock”

EXERCISE TOTAL FOR THE WEEK

I fell asleep to “Anthrax” the new album “For all Kings” released at midnight Eastern time, I listened to it once, started it again & fell asleep about mid-way through it.

I exercised to “The 1975” the other album I had preordered from iTunes. Guess who was the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon last night? The 1975 playing this tune from the new album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware”

The exercise total for the week is – 150 squats, 200 push ups, 2200 crunches, 180 leg lifts, & a five minutes a day of just stretching. We didn’t go walking this week that’s why the squats are high, since we knew we had a busy week.

As for Bautista signing with the Jays, if it was going to happen, I think it would have been done by now? No love lost here, we still have Donaldson, Tulowitzki, Colabello & Martin. I think Encarnacion & Bautista are a lost cause. I’m guessing the general manager and the President are both talking to other teams to see what they can get in return if a trade happens or they’ll keep the 2 until the trade deadline & see where the team in the standings? If they go or not the Jays still have a really good team!

DEADPOOL

I fell asleep to first I listened to the majority of Big Wreck’s album ”Ghosts” then I listened to a few songs of Finger Eleven’s album “Tip”, & finally fell asleep listening to Coheed and Cambria’s album “The Color Before The Sun”

Little bit of LANGUAGE apparently. I always miss it though?

I exercised to Sevendust new album “Kill the Flaw”. I think I pushed myself a bit too much today, the number of some things went up.

No pain no gain for me!

Yes, we finally saw “Deadpool” on Tuesday evening. If you find “Ted” or “Ted 2” offensive, don’t see this movie. It’s vulgar, full of language, nudity, explicit scenes, hilarious, & action packed. I don’t typically laugh out loud at movies, this one got a few chuckles out of me. It could easily give “Star Wars : Episode VII” a run for the money. Right there are 2 movies I intend to purchase on blu-ray. I guess the character is to be from Regina, Saskatchewan, it was mentioned twice in the movie. I guess Ryan Reynolds did film “Just Friends” here. A really good guy, a buddy of mine now in Edmonton, Brendon Woloshyn , was an extra in that movie during a scene at a bar.

Watch this one if you’re not easily offended.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCvLUxICxEI

With “Deadpool” doing so well as an R-Rated comic book movie guess who’s taking the same approach? I hope this means 2 releases of the movie, 1 Rated-R, the other Rated-PG-13.

Disturbed covered Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence”, does that seem odd to anyone but me? They also shot a live video of it.

http://loudwire.com/disturbed-live-video-the-sound-of-silence/

I don’t think a “metal” band should touch that song. Soup of the day, today it’s not very good soup. 6 studio albums that just leave a bad after taste. I have 3 CD box set of Simon & Garfunkel. I’ll take the original in this case.

What is it going to take to put this guy behind bars? How many people has he assaulted in the past & how many future victims will it take? One is one too many! Video inside the link.

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS DO THIS YEAR? I DONT KNOW?

I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

I exercised to”Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

STREAMING MUSIC SITES

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” new album “Dystopia” then I put on “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

I exercised to”Anthrax” all on shuffle.

New “Anthrax” album on Friday with this tune as the first of two singles that are out.

It’s on Facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

I looked into streaming music sites a bit. If you stop paying the fee or unsubscribe from it, your music goes away also, that’s the reason as to why I don’t care much for streaming music. I pay more but I own the music. The bulk of my music comes from iTunes, although I do purchase the odd CD about once or twice a year. Unless you purchase a CD at a concert, the artist(s) makes pennies on a sale. Buy a ticket to the concert, buy a CD, or buy some merchandise while you’re there. That’s how musicians make money. It’s likely not enough for bands that started their career in the 2010s.

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” then a ’70s rock compilation.

I woke up to that same ’70s compilation

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

If you have the album you don’t need a single from iTunes. A single on iTunes is just that, no B-Sides included? I’ve got 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides Most of them were bought on CD. A single & two B-Sides on most of them. Singles on iTunes are nothing more than a cash grab for Apple, who’s stock is on a steady decline from what I hear? I don’t need or want singles on iTunes, I purchase full albums that have the singles on them, so I don’t purchase them. If Apple wants to make money, sell a single along with the 2 or 3 B-Sides! I was never into marketing, but I think that would work? Here are some B-Sides you’ll never hear at the moment if you get your music from iTunes!

Great idea! Here’s the catch though…….they’re expensive & BOOM there goes a tax hike, unless you can find them in a “Walmart” bargain bin. Politicians will have a tough time forcing this idea on the public? Could happen though.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Abortion

 

Who listens to “George Michael” on a drive back to Regina after seeing “Trivium” in Saskatoon? Mitch & I having a dance party!

 

So I guess they decided she was lying about her rape for fame, I don’t know anything about her, there is a good chance the court is wrong. No song by Kesha, since I know nothing about her music?

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday night I slept on the couch. Kim was sleeping with someone else. I’d rephrase it but it’s true…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….etc.

We were babysitting Hannah for Corey & Jolene McDonald. Kim & Hannah slept in the bedroom which put me on our surprisingly comfy couch! We painted, we coloured with markers & crayons, had grilled cheese sandwiches, Kim gave Hannah her bath, then we watched part of “The Little Mermaid” then Hannah wanted to watch a movie from our “Big box”. It’s a tiny toy box with the 3 “Toy Story” movies in it. We watched some of “Toy Story 2” and hit the hay.

Saturday morning, Jolene picked up Hannah, brought coffee & Tim Bits! We were lazy for a bit until Kim decided she go do yoga in the afternoon. While she was out, I did as much as possible to clean up the paints, sticker books, crayons, markers, drawing pads, & other little things. Then I sat down to read some of my book on the Kindle with a pint of mead that was in the fridge. Kim came home & we binge watched all of the shows on our PVR from Thursday & Friday.

Sundays at our house is cleaning/laundry/ironing day or get ready for the week. Kim got groceries while I cleaned our nasty on suite bathroom. Fooled round with our TV that wasn’t working to listen to some “Into Eternity”, finally got it going, and took care of the dishwasher blasting “Into Eternity” followed by some “Big Wreck” until Kim got home.

“The Agonist” shared it……..

For a second I thought he was shutting down the band? Nope, just that particular show.

Light shows & pyrotechnics do nothing for me at a live show. Only “U2” & “Tool” have impressed me with their light show, & U2 came out with the lights on, then ½ way through the first song the lights turned of so it looked like every other concert until the end!

35 years of “Rush’s” Tom Sawyer & they still play it on Regina’s Rock radio station. I didn’t like it the first time I heard & after the other 700 times, I still don’t like it! How about some “Rush” from anytime post 1985?

AMERICAN IDOL/EXERCISE TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the debut “Self Titled” album

I exercised to “A. D. D.” the only album “Core” & changed it to “Alter Bridge” the album “ABIII”

I only listened to half of this album, just a portion of my workout.

Exercise total over 4 days. 90 squats, 200 push ups, 1260 crunches & 30 minutes of yoga.

American Idol confuses me & I’m 36. It’s not that the contestants are much younger & more talented than I’ll ever be. I’ve decided to just watch it & not even try to avoid it. Final season, I might as well? Somebody hit a BIG note, that’s exactly what the judges want to hear. Last year I remember the same judges saying “Hit a big note but know when to not use it” paraphrasing that. I’m 36 years old & that confuses me, how do you think a 14 year old would respond to that?

Yes, I have Dave Grohl’s autograph from a touring one day Canadian festival that stopped in almost every province in the summer of 2000, & yes, I almost peed with joy & excitement when I got it! It’s in a frame here with a poster that drummer Taylor Hawkins signed at a show in Saskatoon about a month after I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. I have 4 of the 5 Foo Fighters autograph’s. Guitarist Pat Smear is the only one I don’t have.

Well that would be a first. I know David Bowie has worked with Dave Grohl a few times. I’ve heard one song they did together.

SPORTS THEN MUSIC & POP CULTURE STUFF

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Siren Charms” first I listen to most of an 18 song “Greatest Hits” by “INXS”

I woke up early & listened to “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June”

I exercised to ”Our Lady Peace” 9 albums on shuffle, 8 of them are on CD!

No, not baseball, but I do try to watch as many Blue Jays games as possible. Not much of football either. NHL is what this short paragraph will be about.

If I want to watch a fight, as a Canadian I can watch boxing, UFC, MMA, or NHL. If I want to watch hockey, I’m lucky if there’s a European game on whatever network. I’ve been to 1 NHL exhibition/preseason game. When did people cheer the loudest? When a fight would occur. Sure they cheered for a goal, all 3 or 4 of them. The crowd made it very apparent that they came to see two guys, on ice, try to beat the snot out of each other. Nobody seemed to care about the score, that’s why I don’t watch this thing called “hockey”. A broken bone will heal, the score of a hockey game will never change. This suspension of a mere 20 games was upheld by the NHL Wednesday afternoon. I still say “Goodbye…………………FOREVER!!!! You cross checked an official you moron!”

NFL vs. CFL, apples & oranges. CFL “Longer, Wider, Faster” I had a T-Shirt back in the day that said that about the CFL. Playing field in the CFL 110 yards long by 65 yards wide, end zones are 20 yards deep. NFL playing field is 100 yards long by 53.5 yards wide, end zone are 10 yards. An NFL game is scheduled for a minimum of 4 hours, a CFL game is scheduled for 3 hours. Both leagues can use the same ball. CFL footballs are normally larger around. 3 downs in Canada, not 4 like the NFL. CFL goal posts are at the end zone line, NFL goal posts are even with the back of the end zone.

I’ve never gotten into NFL though many Canadians are. The CFL has become rather boring, could be because the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have been terrible the last 2 seasons.

Cancer wise, nothing new. Right now my body is trying to be more of a normal/healthy body. Kind of like going through a different type of puberty? The first puberty was great, let’s do something like that again!………………..NOT! That or I’m just getting old?

I couldn’t even name a song by “Kesha”. I have seen her interviewed a few times on “Conan”, but that’s it.

Awesome, I liked the 5 song EP “Stone Temple Pilots” released with “Chester Bennington” of “Linkin Park”

http://loudwire.com/stone-temple-pilots-reunite-chester-bennington-one-off-benefit/

I’d enter this contest, but I’m really turned off by the “singer” for “Children of Bodom” who are opening as the 2nd of 3 bands in total. I like these 2 songs but that’s it.

Sing or do death metal growls? Don’t do both at the same time, it’s not all that & a bag of chips. Figure it out & “call me maybe”

“Big Wreck” shared it! This album instantly reminds me of “Dire Straits”

Movie sequels you may not have known were coming in 2016? “Angels & Demons” & “The DaVinci Code” were released in the wrong order of the books & paled in comparison to the books!
