Thanksgiving weekend & Kim’s parents & brother came down.  We had our turkey day on Sunday at Sherry & James’ place.  Good to see them!  They live near Prince Albert, roughly 3 ½ hours north of Regina.  We haven’t been to their house since 2007.  Too long!  Since I had cancer, they come to Regina.  If Kim’s younger brother can get time off work he come as well.  He made it down this weekend.

I don’t know what it was but shortly after 5:00 pm yesterday, before supper, I could have easily fallen asleep in my chair?  Even today we got up & started cleaning, after a little more than an hour, Kim & I were both exhausted?


Thursday I went to this show at the Casino & then Saturday I returned to see a different show.


Went to the Casino again Saturday.  This time to see “I Mother Earth” their 20th anniversary of the album “Scenery & Fish”.  Yes, I was 16 when this album was released.  They broke up after their 4th album.  I saw them once in ’96 in Saskatoon on tour for this album & once in 1999 or 2000 on tour for their 3rd album.  “Scenery & Fish” is the most popular album of theirs, I think I read somewhere that it went 3 x platinum.  That seems to me to be an overstatement?  The only thing missing from the show was my mother.  My brother & I should have been washing the dishes listening to this album with our parents in the living room & my mother shouting at us “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!!!!”  I don’t think she likes I Mother Earth?  I could be wrong though?

Fantastic show though!  They came out & played the entire “Scenery & Fish” album in order.  That’s something I think fans would like to see most bands do?  Play the entire new album & then a few other songs.  Most of these songs I’d never heard live, & probably never will again.

If they continue to tour & release singles, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll hear these first two songs & maybe more?

These 2 songs are pretty much a guarantee to hear!

Yes, they’re a Canadian band.  This is from their 2nd album release in 1996.  This was only the 3rd time I’ve seen them live.  Once in 1996, 1999 or 2000 & this Saturday.



Can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of Iggy Pop, but here’s an interview he did with Rolling Stone


LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Long 1:28:56.


A lot of good tunes & videos to vote for here if you like?



Big Wreck shared it….


Ozzy surprises Sharon on her birthday!



Far too much good music coming out near the end of the year!  4 albums on preorder & a few I’ll wait on.  Here are the preorders I have yet to receive on iTunes finishing on November 18th


A couple of albums I know are coming out in November that I’ll have to wait for.  Gotta save cash for Christmas!  Always more important to give rather than receive!

I don’t know what it is about “Bruno Mars” I just find his music incredibly catchy!  I’m still cautious about getting the Metallica album?


Possibly “Into Eternity”, “Big Wreck”, “Royal Blood” & “Paramore”?


I like the new “Green Day” album, for me, it’s the third best album of the 3 I bought on Friday though.




This song has everything I shouldn’t like, I don’t know what “Bruno Mars” does to his music, but I think it’s fantastic without the sexist video full of stereotypes!



“Alter Bridge” album review


Soundgarden’s “Badmotorfinger” is 25 years old!


Take this “Tool” info with a ton of salt.  They’re extremely private about any recordings.  It will come out some day, & I’m not holding my breath for a release date or any ballyhoo!



Last Week Tonight with John Oliver


Maybe a new album from “System of a Down”, they’re not sure.  European tour dates for 2017 though.



Toronto Blue Jays won 3 straight games against the Texas Rangers!!!!  Now it’s on to Boston or Cleveland for a best of 7 games series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
