Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”, then about ¾ of “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm Und Drang”

Early morning straight out the door for a message & a blood test before my MRI.  Preseason baseball to watch this afternoon.  In other words, I’ll be laying on the couch in a position that is comfortable for my leg with an ice pack on it.

I admit that at most times I was OK being the center of attention in comfortable situations or in a small group of friend.  I’m older now & I look like the loser of a brawl.  I’m OK not being the center of attention now, then I don’t feel as though I have to be “on”.  I still have issues meeting new people looking the way I do, in a wheelchair & with an iPatch.  However, when anyone wants to take a photo of my cousins & I, I’m asked to take off my iPatch & sometimes stand up with someone’s help.  Well I’ve never enjoyed anyone taking my photo to begin with & me without my iPatch, glasses, or wheelchair is just as fake as a poorly done photoshop picture.  How about no photos please.  I don’t look at them or have a camera.  Take photos of whatever you like, just not me please?

Basically what I’m saying is I used to really enjoy going out, now I go out of the house once or twice a week & I’m good, or else I get cabin fever.  I don’t leave the house every morning & drive to work, I get bored very fast.

 

Yep, I bought Ed Sheeran on preorder & got it last night!  I haven’t listened to it yet.  I got the deluxe edition.  It’s a 16 song album & I’d rather give it a more focused listen the first time around.

 

I forgot to mention yesterday that “Queens of the Stone Age” have completed the recording process of their new album also.  I think a new album from “Royal Blood” is almost a guarantee as well, from what I saw on Facebook a few weeks ago?

 

Pentatonix shared it….

 

I think one day of not giving any member of Trumps’ office any news or publicity would be hilarious!  They can ban any news source they want, & the entire media can choose whatever they want to report on.  The problem with this is ratings & news articles seriously drop if this is what happens?

I think I shared this earlier this week?  Here’s “The Pretty Reckless” live on Conan.

I can’t really handle a lot of “Slipknot”.  They’re not too heavy for me.  I’ve got one of their albums which I’ve only listened to probably 4 times at most.

I find it odd when a band says “We’re going back to our original sound” like U2 said after releasing the free album to anyone with iTunes.  I don’t think a band should ever make that statement.  They’re setting the bar for their next album.  Hardcore fans will more than likely be disappointed & anyone else that hears the album could sway either way & be disappointed with the next album or the preceding catalogue.  I find that to be a faux pas.  It took “Metallica” a long time for most fans.

 

The Blue Jays have needs that could solve many of their issues staring at them right in the face.  They aren’t planning on using them though because they’re too young.  Their off season plan was to get younger & more left handed.  Rowdy Tellez & Dalton Pompey do both & they’re Blue Jays that came through the Jays minor system.  I wonder why this team hasn’t made it to the World Series since 1993?  Both players are young, left handed.  Tellez fills a void at first base, & Pompey can hit lead off while filling a void in left field, as well as having speed on the bases.  You still have a great bat on the bench with the injured utility player Steve Pearce they got in the off season who only has 100 MLB games under his belt & he’s right handed.  Let the kids play, & I’d drop Upton & Smoak in a trade for another utility player/bat off of the bench in a second.  Smoak has yet to live up to his potential & Upton is on the downside of his career.
