CANCER/GRAMMY AWARDS

I fell asleep to “Anthrax” all on shuffle!

I exercised to ”Paramore” all 4 albums on shuffle!

My brain cancer diagnoses was in 2008. The distance from Tuesday, February 5th 2008 makes my cancer seem very insignificant sort of like “Ah, what the heck was that?”. Sure I’m in a wheelchair, I can’t drive, & I have a patch over my left eye. No big deal to me! I can laugh about MY cancer, I don’t laugh about anyone else’ though. It’s something I hope nobody will ever have to go through or deal with. Me? I’m alive, I’ve got this & if I need help, I’ve got lots of great people to help me. Sure I’ll have some lasting effects from brain cancer, so I adjust to do a task in a different way.

It’s not the ’90s anymore I guess, time for me to grow up sort of……………….nope that won’t work. I’m 36 and set in my ways. The Grammy Awards weren’t terrible. There were some artists that I liked. Bruno Mars, “1989” by Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Lionel Richie, Lady Ga Ga’s tribute to David Bowie, Pentatonix, Stevie Wonder, Alice Cooper, the tribute to Lemmy Kilmister & of course Dave Grohl was there! Lamb of God was nominated for their 6th Grammy, I don’t know or really care if they won? Grammy Awards that have been won really don’t dictate what I’m going to “purchase” or “stream”. Yes I still purchase the odd CD & purchase albums from iTunes.

Sorry, I’ve tried to listen to “Guns n’ Roses”, I just can’t get into them. Somewhere here there’s a purchased CD of “Appetite for Destruction”. It hasn’t seen the light of day for quite sometime. They’re all obviously good at what they do & likely busted their butts to achieve their success, just not for me. It sometimes takes me a few years to enjoy an album if I dismiss it upon first listen. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” in 2000. It’s 2016, and no, I’m still not a fan.

The new “Tremonti” single is coming soon!!!!!!

As a fan of “Muse” I wasn’t big on this latest release? Musically, yes, lyrically, no.

Muse are on tour & I missed them, again. They’re back in Europe finishing their tour. They did have some Canadian dates but I missed them. I don’t even remember where they were, probably too “…..far away…”?

I thought “Lady Ga Ga” did a fantastic David Bowie tribute!

I do like Taylor Swift’s “1989” album

I love James Corden’s carpool karaoke

I really liked the tribute to Lemmy Kilmister as well. I thought I’d see Matt Sorum (Guns n’ Roses former drummer) die during this performance?

I guess “Ghosts” won “Best Metal performance”? Not “Lamb if God”? Oh, well. I didn’t even know “Sevendust” was nominated for this as well.

Not my favourite “Fall Out Boy” album.

Just to clear the air on the Toronto Blue Jays. I’m pretty sure every Jays fan has a suggestion as to what they’d do to the roster. I would trade $20,000,000 32 year old Troy Tulowitzki for a needed back up Catcher & some prospects, if that trade is available? You put a young guy at Short Stop (who’s talent will likely be wasted sitting on the bench) & you have 2 other utility infielders that can fill the void at 2B in the meantime until Devon Travis can play (expected back in May). I have nothing against Tulowitzki, his bat & defense are incredible. At the very least I hope they make Devon Travis earn the 2B spot from Goins. If the Blue Jays didn’t have Ryan Goins I wouldn’t bother giving up Tulowitzki. It just saves money for Bautista & Encarnacion, who’s contracts are up at the end of the year & will be looking for a final contract in the neighbour hood of $20,000,000 each, “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” has echoed this many times, has anybody mentioned this to president Mark Shapiro or GM Ross Atkins? I’d call in to the show on Mondays or Fridays if my voice was better, but oh well. Just to ask if this has been mentioned to the president or general manager? If not you teach Tulowitzki to play 1B & trade Encarnacion or let him walk at the end of the year? I just hate the idea of not playing Ryan Goins everyday. Bob McCowen came up with the last idea. Only 6 days until pitchers & catchers report to spring training in Florida!!!!!

Record of the year. How could it not be? This song sounds best a maximum volume aka 11!

Pentatonix & Stevie Wonder at the Grammy Awards

Sorry, I’m long winded, I enjoy writing. I used to write song lyrics, now I write a blog. When I would write lyrics for a song, 4 of us would record a demo of the music. I’d put that on my iPod & take 2 weeks roughly to write lyrics, then at least another week to name the song. My brother gave me crap when I’d take so long to name a song “CHRIS, WHY? HURRY UP AND NAME IT ALREADY!!!!”

I had 3 partially written songs that I re-worked to fit the music. Other than that, the lyrics I wrote took a while. I write these posts the same way. I write a bit, then figure out a title, only it needs to have a title in a few hours not a few weeks, I write “Under Pressure” see, that just popped up.

According to Rolling Stone, Kendrik Lamar, stole the show at the Grammy Awards. Song inside the link.
