I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” still hooked on the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Paramore” the album “All We Know is Falling”

I cleaned to “Foo Fighters” the album “One by One”

 

I ramped up some of my numbers & added yoga to the routine this week.  Much better this way!  I wanted to get up early today.  I wanted to do some stuff around the house so I could watch the baseball game that starts in roughly 2.5 hours, so I went to bed at 9:30 pm.  I usually stay up until 10:30 or 11:00 and get up at 7:00 am.  Today I was out of the bedroom shortly after 5:00 am.  I’m done what I wanted to finish & now I’m tired & sweaty.  I did my exercise, had my breakfast.  Emptied the dishwasher & cleaned both washrooms & 7:50 am.

While I was cleaning the mirrors in the bathrooms, I noticed my beard has many grey/white whiskers in it!  I guess that’s to be expected, I’m 37 but I sure don’t feel like it!!!!!!!!  I stay up late & I like to get up & get things done so I have some free time, but today is already ridiculous!  I’m out now to see what else I can do around here before the ball game.

I will never force my religion on anyone.  I Anglican & if you’re not that’s fine with me.  Any religion or atheism is OK in my books, as long as you’re a good person.  It’s the radical extremists I’ll never understand.  What book are they reading, that their God tells them to kill others?

As George Carlin said, ‘Who created killing?’  His simple reply ‘Humans’ & he’s right.  I think every individual has the capability to kill, but the majority of us don’t since we know it’s not right!

As much as we hate, we also have the ability to be respectful & decent to each other.  Why don’t more people act on that trait?  Sure there are many things I don’t like, am I going to go so far to harm anyone who likes something I don’t?  No!  I’ll leave them be & find something else that I enjoy.

My intent is to be happy.  Killing or harming others is never something I’d do or take pleasure in doing.

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

Our Lady Peace & I Mother Earth were my first ‘rock’ bands I got hooked in high school in the 1990s.  Our Lady Peace’s first album “Naveed” took some warming up to it & now that’s my go to OLP album.  I Mother Earth’s 2nd album “Scenery & Fish” quickly became one of my favourite albums ever, both albums were Canada’s reaction/reply to the “grunge” movement in the USA.  OLP released their first album “Naveed” in 1994 & IME released their 2nd album “Scenery & Fish” in 1996.

Getting to see my first 2 rock bands from high school, late last year & on the weekend were both a real treat for me.  Of course I own all of the CDs, with the exception of the newest Our Lady Peace album which was released in 2012.

I remember driving 2 friends to high school with the 1st Our Lady Peace album on.  I said “These guys will be huge!!!”  They thought I was off of my rocker, & told me that it wouldn’t happen.  The first 2 singles on their 2nd album were HUGE hits.  I was right but the singer sounded as though he was whinier, that got a little worse with every release.  I should have stopped buying their music after the 4th album of 7 or 8?

Even live on Saturday they knew to play only 2 songs from their 5th album & everything else was from their 1st 4 albums.  They started with a song from the 1st album & finished with a song from the 1st album.

 

20 best-selling hard rock & metal albums in the USA.

I googled the top 20 best-selling albums in Canada & it wasn’t pretty.  I saw Aqua, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, & a few others.  Celine Dion & Shania Twain had multiple albums on the list.  I was unable to search for just hard rock & metal albums in Canada.  Apparently Canadians just ate this up though???????????????????????????????????  Oh, Canada  L  WHY??????

I was listening to ‘Pantera’ album “Vulgar Display of Power” just the other day!

 

Why does a metal fan have to have long hair, a beard & swear so much?

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

 

Describing the different subgenres of metal music sucks & ends up wasting my time in the end.  If non-metal fans want to know, I recommend watching the documentary “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey”, the TV series “Metal: Evolution”, or they can continue their life calling it screamy music.  I just call it metal, I know what it means!

 

Alter Bridge will tour the crap out in Europe, have they ever played Canada?  Yeah, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.  That typical Canadian tour!  “Ah, there’s nobody else in Canada!”

This needs no explanation, just a good chuckle!

Anybody asking Foo Fighters to play at any event had better be ready to hear them for a minimum of 2 hours!

Our Lady Peace covers The Cars & The Beatles.  When I saw them in 1998, & they covered The Beatles, that’s when The Beatles’ White album became my favourite Beatles album!

 

Trivium shared it.  It’s metal…………………

 

Wonder Woman hits theaters on Friday.  I’m going to see it long after the hard core comic fans see it.

 

Lamb of God shared one of my favourite songs!  It’s metal…….

 

I guess the punk band “Rancid” are still around.  I like them but most of their album tracks are a little bit too much heavy punk for me.  This new song sounds quite a bit like their hit in the 1990s “Time Bomb”

The Toronto Blue Jays won 17-2 with 3 homeruns capped off with a grand-slam by Short Stop Troy Tulowitzki!  They won 6-4 Tuesday night on 4 home runs.  The question is, do they have any more of that left for today’s afternoon game?  How will the next 4 games go with the N.Y. Yankees in town?
