iTUNES

I tried to fall asleep to “Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals” the newest album “Call it What it is”

Didn’t do the trick switched to “Barenaked Ladies” the 2nd album “Maybe You Should Drive”

That didn’t work either, then I finally fell asleep to”Blue Rodeo” the album “Greatest Hits Part 1”

I exercised to “Chevelle” all albums on shuffle

Late start to my day. Kim left for work at 7:00 am, I didn’t roll , my lazy butt out of bed until 8:30 am. I much prefer getting up before 8:00 am so I can get things done. For me this is a day of rushing around the place to do what’s needed after my exercises.

I can’t remember what European country it was, iTunes was ruled by a judge that iTunes is illegal since 2013 or 2014. Because you can burn a CD on it. Apple now sells lap-top computers without a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive. That sounds more illegal than banning the use of iTunes all together. I’m sure the people at Apple could just not include the burning software?

Say you’re sitting around the house & an older song pops into your head maybe you heard it in passing or on a commercial and you say to yourself “Hey, I’ve got that on CD! I should put it on my iPod!” wait, you can’t because you have a new Apple lap top with no CD drive in it. So now you’re going to add the album to your streaming service or buy it on iTunes. More money for Apple (The Rich) & less for you (The not nearly as rich), this sounds illegal to me. Apple is now checking the info on the music you put on your personal iTunes & we’re not allowed to borrow or burn mix CDs because it is now illegal? What was the movie I saw just a few years ago with Ashton Kutcher who made a mix CD for Natalie Portman’s character on her period?

Comedy album anyone?

Pentatonix shared it, again…………….

Masterpiece review courtesy of The Consequence of Sound. This is when Radiohead took a big dive for me. This is their third album after the very FANTASTIC “The Bends” followed by the oh so AWESOME/MIND BLOWING “OK Computer”

For the record I’m not a fan of Kiss, Motley Crue, or Sixx AM. Gene Simmons is & will be known as the most outspoken musician in history, Kanye West will be a close 2nd . I don’t listen to any of them. They’re the ones who have the celebrity platform to say what they want, when they want. You can choose to listen or avoid it.

Typical 0 Canadian dates not even the 3 or 4 that most do. Toronto, Montreal, maybe Calgary, & Vancouver. Rarely in Saskatchewan or Manitoba either. Ah, well?

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

Alice in Chains & Lenny Kravitz to open on the Guns n’ Roses tour

http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-select-alice-in-chains-lenny-kravitz-open-not-in-this-lifetime-shows/

If you ask me? I’d go to see the opener, and leave when the opener was done. It’s subjective & the only reason there’s any info on Guns n’ Roses is because I know that many people are BIG fans of them.

OK that’s fine. It doesn’t take a decade to release an album the same way Axl & friends did with “Chinese Democracy”. Yes Donald Trump has made a joke of the political system in the USA.
