HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!

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

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!
