Is my family weird because we’ve had peanut butter & banana sandwiches or peanut butter & jam/jelly sandwiches?
Friday ended with a TON of recorded TV being watched. I did my exercises in the morning while Kim, who had the day off, went grocery shopping.
Saturday, dad & I had every intension of going to the Saskatchewan Roughrider game against the visiting Edmonton Eskimos. I was at their house dressed in layers and said we should just stay at my parents’ place & watch the game on the 104” HD projection screen in the basement, so we did! Roughriders lost so we play in Ottawa for the first round of playoff games. We went upstairs to have a delicious roast, vegetable & Greek flavoured potatoes. I don’t eat potatoes if they’re mashed, boiled or baked. If it’s French Fries, there had better be ketchup nearby. Kim went to our friends place to watch the UFC/MMA fight on pay-per-view. I can’t get into watching that stuff.
We got home late last night, around 11:30 pm, & I fell out of my wheelchair. We had a TON of recycling in front of the closet. I tried to reach too far & down I went into a very small area between the recycling & the door. As I always say it’s not the first time I’ve fallen & it probably won’t be the last time.
Today is our usual Sunday routine. We slept in, had breakfast, & now we’ll get ready for the week, & I’ll watch some more of “Stranger Things season 2” on Netflix.
MUSIC & POP CULTURE TALK
That’s a list of metal bands that is far more miss than hit, for me!
Stone Temple Pilots are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big Wreck at the Casino Regina February 17th 2018 to celebrate 20 years since their debut album “In Loving Memory of…” WOOHOO!
Grunge was the cool thing in the early 90s. I hated it, just loud noise to me. I turned 13 in 1993. Everybody was saying how fantastic “Nirvana” & “Soundgarden” were. In 1992 I saw the “Barenaked Ladies” as my first concert. Our entire immediate family went, I was 12 & my brother was 5 years old.
From that point on I was all about acoustic “rock/pop” music “Blues Traveler”, “Sister Hazel”, & “Hootie & the Blowfish”
I have 13 “Barenaked Ladies” albums on my iPod & I still listen to them. That’s the album I have preordered for mid-November, titled “Fake Nudes”.
That phase didn’t last too long. In 1996 “I Mother Earth” released the album “Scenery & Fish” that went triple platinum. That & “Our Lady Peace” album “Naveed” turned me on to rock music.
Everybody at my high school was all about “Our Lady Peace” 2nd album, different strokes for most of the country other than me. Their 2nd album “Clumsy” for me was the start of a fast & steady decline.
It wasn’t a bad album to me. I really like their first 4 albums still, & listen to them. I’ve got all of their 8 studio albums. I only enjoy the first 4 though.
It was around 1996 I started getting into grunge and heavier rock albums, especially Canadian rock!
