A & W

I believe in the use of GMOs.  If you don’t that’s fine with me.  You’re entitled to your opinion, just as much as I am to mine.

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “VS.”

I exercised to “Paramore” all 4 albums on shuffle. A popular song from each album. Oh, & a live cover they did for those over sea involved in the war.

Kim wakes me up before she leaves for work. Today I think I said or I at least thought “Great it’s Friday, crap it’s Tuesday”. Too bad for me.

The only 2 reasons this came up were because I’ve seen the commercial so often & I was in an A & W on our way back home Sunday.

This will cause a vicious cycle/circle discussion possibly. A & W now sells burgers without steroids or hormones in it. Cool, do what some people want, those that are ANTI-GMO. Fine by me. Just think of the farmer though? The farmer has raised this animal now for what purpose if it gets sick? It has no purpose, it dies or is killed since the farmer can’t do much with a sick animal. The farmer doesn’t get paid & the animal wont be used for anything?

If you’re drinking dairy milk you run into the same problem & if it’s soy milk, it has GMOs, chemicals that are unnatural. Now what? Almond milk? Almonds come from a plant? So you may have to stop consuming beef, dairy, soy milk, & I’m assuming pigs, & chickens are also in the mix with steroids & hormones. Are you just going to drink water for the rest of your life & live on free range meat? What happens if all of the animals get sick & the farmer goes broke since the animals are all sick & the crops won’t survive the season without GMOs? I don’t think vegan or vegetarian is the way to avoid GMOs, what will you drink for a milk substitute? This debate over GMOs is a debate for scientists & farmers, the rest of us really can’t ask a farmer “Hey, could you make that field grow without GMOs & don’t give your animals any hormones or steroids”. Sorry, the world just doesn’t work that way.

I’m PRO-GMO, if you’re ANTI-GMO, it’s cool by me. I’m not a farmer or scientist, live your life your way & I’ll live mine my way. Free North American Continent , it’s all good.

4 year anniversary Monday of “Halestorm” the album “The Strange Case of”

10 albums you wont believe went platinum!


Yes, I’ve played this live.

Pearl Jam kicked off their tour on Sunday, with this Cheap Trick cover on the set list

Alter Bridge shared this acoustic song….

A snippet from Brian Wilson’s memoirs? (The Beach Boys)


What did we listen to en route to Winnipeg? Some classic hits from the ’90s on my brother’s iPod. Face it, there’s a good chance you know a few of the words.

I even learned how to play “Faith” the entire A chord!

In Flames shared it, this the first album I bought of theirs after seeing them live for the first time in Saskatoon for the final “Sounds of the Underground” tour. Basically a touring metal festival. I was there with Kim’s/my brother-in-law James.

First 2 Halestorm albums are officially Gold albums.


These 2 albums seemed quite similar to me. Their 3rd studio album, Into the Wild Life, I find to be much more diverse.


I’m more than surprised anyone wants to have anything to do personally with Axl Rose? LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On the video inside the link.

  1. I’m not really in the know about GMOs but I do know that the world population is too high for us to viably sustain it with our current agricultural process. There is too many people to feed. We need to help our crops grow and fast. Can you imagine the chaos of we have a year with no crops. We need to keep the crops growing and the animals growing. I can see how they might be bad for our health but dying of starvation is no better. We are at the point where something needs to begin to change in our system to keep pace with the worlds population but that’s for another day to discuss.
