RATING & REVIEWS ARE ODD

I fell asleep to “The Police” greatest hits album followed by “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Blind”

I did my squats in silence & had to rest to catch my breath.

Weird/early baseball game today?

 

I was looking at “Suicide Squad” to purchase.  I’ve heard nothing but bad things about the movie.  I look on iTunes & it’s rated terribly, Amazon reviews are very positive 4/5 stars.  Batman vs. Superman was rated terribly also, after seeing it in the theater, I bought it ASAP on iTunes & I’ve likely watched the “Ultimate Edition” 6 or 7 times.  Remember, I had 2 weeks without a computer.  I watched movies & read a lot.

I guess I do reviews in a way, “Check it out” or “Stay away” from this thing.  I guess that’s my take on whatever the subject is.  So I encourage you to check out whatever you like either on this blog or from a friend.  I’m not always right about what you may or may not like.  Batman vs. Superman is hands down the best comic book movie I’ve seen.  That includes “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” or at least as good, but that’s just my take on it.

 

Oh, happy day!  Yesterday immediately after I posted the blog, I checked iTunes.  Highly Suspect finally had the preorder for their new (2nd) album, “The Boy Who Died Wolf”  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

In Flames shared it….

 

Heard some of the outro music from the new Big Wreck album on Facebook.  Sounding REALLY good, looking forward to it.  Nice follow up to this album………….

 

Rule 1.  NEVER let a musician or musicians loose in a record or CD store!

I tend to preorder most albums on iTunes.  I like this new Metallica song, but there is NO possibility of me preordering this.  Instrumental only.

The movie “Aliens” is considered a Masterpiece?

I was 4 years old when this was released.  I’ve heard nothing but praise for this franchise.  I haven’t seen it & I really don’t care to.

 

This lawsuit could get ugly me thinks!

Only problem for me is red wine.  I have yet to find a red wine I like.

At some point in the early ‘90s I figured that my favourite rap songs were the same music as my parents’ rock music.  I didn’t know what sampling was but I knew a few songs were really similar.

Another shooting at a Walmart in Brooklyn.  I have nothing to say other than wait a week, the odds are easily saying there will be a few more before the year is done.
