I fell asleep to a bit of “Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk, Hop & Roll”, then these 2 complete albums “Nothing but Thieves” the debut S/T album, “Paramore” the new album “After Laughter”

From yesterday.  I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

It takes me a while to fall asleep, music or not.

 

Pretty mellow start to our staycation, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon & night, night time immediately after.

We’re bad at staycations.  We both want to do something productive & end up mildly doing something.  Kim tends to clean, I make a mess & occasionally exercise.

Why do we do staycations?  We like hanging out with our dog & we can’t afford to jump on a plane & go anywhere.  Brewster always has to be with someone.  He has bad anxiety issues when he’s alone or if there is a storm.  Once he hears thunder he immediately starts panting & scratching at the door or hides in the main washroom.

He has small valium pills he will only take if we hide it in cheese or deli turkey.  If he smells the pill, he won’t eat it.  Brewster makes our staycation somewhat normal for us?

We didn’t even venture out to my families cabin last year.  I guess we’re cheap & lazy?  I’m not very adventurous anyways, poor Kim.  I know she’d enjoy a trip.  As long as I get out of the house 1 or 2 times a week, I’m good!

 

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

How did Wayne Gretzky get his nick name “The Great One”?

Despite being Canadian, I really don’t watch much hockey & I never played ice hockey.  Just road hockey as a kid.

 

How is the new ‘Tool’ album coming?  Ask bassist, Justin Chancellor.

I’m still not holding my breath for a new album this year.  It will be released when “Tool” wants it to be released.

 

Nickelback’s “Feed the Machine” album debuts at number 5 on the charts.  I’m not going to trash them, they’ve done very well for themselves!  Their lead single wasn’t bad for this album.  I’ve heard it 3 or 4 times though & I’m good now.

SNES + 21 games for $100.  Sweet deal!  Wait…..I already had my birthday this year.  A console without 18 buttons on the controller is something I’ve been waiting for & available for the public!
