I would like to be watching the first Toronto Blue Jays regular season game which the pregame starts at 1:00 pm. Baseball trumps most things on the weekends. Until our TV shows finish their season it’s Blue Jays in :30 which I don’t like but it’s better than nothing I guess? They lost their last 2 spring training games in Montreal against the Boston Red Sox. Doesn’t really matter since they didn’t play all of the regulars for long if at all.

We saw 10 Cloverfield Lane Saturday evening. Would have been a great movie if they could have written an ending. At least John Goodman was in it. I don’t see a reason for a sequel despite the lack of an ending.

Mark Tremonti interview on his upcoming release April 29th, the next Alter Bridge album currently being recorded at the moment, & his desire to collaborate with Metallica.

The Alter Bridge album “Fortress”, their 4th album, was the first album of theirs that I downloaded on iTunes, the previous 3 I bought on CD. My mother got me the 10 year anniversary box set so know I have all four CDs & all four on vinyl, plus DVDs of interviews. Each album seams to be better than the previous release (for me), I hope they continue that trend!

How many Axl Rose on stage blow ups will happen on this “reunion” tour? I’ll guess 2 or 3 as a minimum. For the record, I don’t like Guns n’ Roses. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” their debut album from 1987. I haven’t listened to it in at least 12 or 13 years, I bought since the rest of the world kept telling me it was so good, sorry, not for me. They have their place but for me, it’s buried in my closet, where it will stay.

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point you’re probably asking yourself “Does this idiot even like music?”. I do, but it’s not Metallica, GNR, or the entire 1980s L.A. hair metal scene. 1990S “grunge” is more my thing, or modern metal. You probably have never heard of the metal I like unless you’re a fan of metal? The metal I like really isn’t hard to find. There are many other metal fans in Regina that know much more about metal than I do.

1 GNR concert down, 20 to go here’s some info from the first show.

It’s much more difficult than I anticipated to keep my opinion to myself. Remember that you can always suggest a group to me & I’ll be more than willing to check it out. You don’t have to check out the stuff I like either if you don’t want to, it’s just a suggestion, sort of a “See if you like this?”

This was a topic on one of the far too many TV shows I watch. Is it morally wrong to watch “The Cosby Show” knowing that he allegedly did some terrible things? If so, is it just as wrong to listen to “Michael Jackson” despite what he was accused of doing? I watched “The Cosby Show” growing & it was good as a kid. I have no desire to watch it again, not for what he’s being accused of simply because I don’t need/want to see it again. My parents have a DVD of him doing his stand up comedy, is it wrong that I want to watch it? As for Michael Jackson, I don’t listen to him often, when I do I turn it up to 11! Is that wrong? “…..In a nutshell….” are the fallen entertainment legends labeled for the good things they’ve done or the bad things……………or both, is it OK to enjoy their entertainment while knowing what they’ve been accused of? Is it wrong that I listen to “Moxy Fruvous” still after what Jian Gomeshi has been accused of? O.J. Simpson? So many celebrities. I’m not a fan of NFL & never have been, I had no clue who O.J. was until his trial when I was a teenager in the ’90s. Please respond with your thoughts?

Even singer “Steven Page” of this group was sent to jail for cocaine possession & I still listen to the stuff he sang on. I really don’t know where I stand on the majority of these matters?

I wouldn’t apologize for this, I also wouldn’t use the language he used. It’s a live show. In my opinion, cell phones should not be allowed in any public gathering for a movie or show. Every concert, musical & live performance should at least have the cell phone disclaimer before the show like there is at every movie. You can purchase or rent the movie afterwards. The crappy video & crappy sound on your phone you may look at once & realize it’s terrible but you just paid $90 to see it live & you screwed it up. How about someone coming to your place of employment & video recording you? It will bother you, any co workers, & clients, who need to speak with you.

If it comes to the point that I require a cell phone, I’ll use it like a home phone. If I’m out and you’re not there it would be for two reasons only, I didn’t invite you for some reason or you weren’t able to attended and I’m not the one who will give you the play by play. Also if you text me, I’ll call you………………consider yourself warned. I don’t like the idea of mobile devices in the least. You have one that’s fine with me. I don’t need or want one.

I’m not a fan of Gwen Stefani’s solo work but her stuff with “No Doubt” I do enjoy!

I know my brother saw them with “Paramore” as the opener. I think I was in the hospital & I hadn’t heard of “Paramore”? If I had, I would’ve tagged along.

Mark Tremonti on the progress from the studio recording the 5th Alter Bridge album.

“Guitars are coming along nicely!” I hope it’s released this year?!

Guns n’ Roses first show of the reunion tour in a small club. I wonder what other group performs at a small club before a huge tour after recording a new album?………………wait……………it’s “Foo Fighters” usually a secret show with a different name advertised.

I’m ready to watch baseball and “I’ve got my short shorts on”

Here I come couch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First regular season game, then 161 more to go. I watch the majority of the 3 hour game almost everyday, if I can’t I guess I’ll record “Blue Jays in :30” & I usually feel lonely. I know of 2 friends that can watch a 3 hour baseball game. Last year they played 19 innings instead of the usual 9 innings, that’s just over 6 hours, I watched it all. No such thing as a tie game in baseball, they play until someone wins!

HOW EVER YOU’RE GETTING THIS, PLEASE PASS IT AROUND?

REALLY HELP ME OUT & SPREAD THE WORD PLEASE!!!
