I fell asleep to “Jimmy Eat World” the album “Bleed American”, followed by “In Flames” the 4 cover song EP “Down, Wicked, & No Good”

If you’re wondering, this is a cover of an “Alice in Chains” song!

 

Who made it OK to judge a book by its cover?  Kelly Clarkson has been dealing with body shaming of currently on the internet.  Is it really that important that people take time out of their day to criticize how someone looks?  Is she happy with no health issues?  Did it change the way she sounds?  If she’s OK with it, no comment is needed.

Sounds pretty good to me!

 

This is just like screaming, swearing, & yelling at someone.  Do you feel better now?  Do you think the person on the receiving end feels any better?  Put on your adult pants & show someone the same respect you think you deserve!  If you’re not a part of the solution, then you’re likely a part of the problem.

I’ve worked in a customer service/online purchasing call center.  I’ve been yelled at over the phone.  You know what I was told?  Hang up!  I wasn’t there to be yelled at & it honestly didn’t change anything.

I’m currently dealing with a problem with Apple.  I have been dealing with a big issue since early October.  I’m not chewing the guy out, he’s trying to help me.  He didn’t cause the problem, so why would I be rude to him?  It won’t solve anything.

 

I’m sorry, too funny & very well done.

 

FYI – Foo Fighters are the musical guest on SNL on the fall finale on December 16th!!!!!!

 

New Dream Theater next year!!!!!  Pre – order on iTunes now!  No I’m not pre- ordering it.  Too many issues with iTunes at the moment.  Full release on January 26th.

 

Chester Bennington sang on a 5 song EP for “Stone Temple Pilots” after Scott Weiland overdosed.  That has to be really hard on the band.  I guess they’re on their 3rd vocalist?  There may have been a few before Scott, so I hear?

I always wonder if “Soundgarden” or if “Linkin Park” will look for a singer?  Probably too soon for both bands though.  “Stone Temple Pilots” found Jeff Gutt, who sounds a lot like Scott Weiland.  They sound so much alike it’s just odd………….but he was 2nd place on a TV singing competition.  Who won?  I don’t know?

 

The Myles Kennedy solo album, Year of the Tiger, will be available for preorder on iTunes on Friday & you can get 1 song with the preorder.  I’d preorder many albums but I’m waiting for my iTunes to be fixed.  I’ll check them out & purchase them after the full release.  For some reason my entire library has gone a little wonky?  Apple Music & iTunes?  I can stream anything on Apple Music, as long as I don’t put it in my library?  I’m told it’s a problem on their end.  Wait & see I guess, it’s out of my hands.

I can guarantee a Wednesday & Friday blog post this week, after that maybe 2 – 5 more for the year?

Friday was quiet.  We were going to babysit our friends 4 year old, but Jolene wasn’t feeling well. We stayed up until 11:00 pm & cleared off most of the DVR, except the Christmas stuff I saved for my mother-in-law.

Saturday was full of Christmas shopping online.  Me looking over Kim’s shoulder on her computer.  After I made my veggie juice.  Ran a couple of small errands Saturday evening.

Sunday I’ll be baking some fish for the week & boiling/peeling eggs for the week.  Kim had a work gathering at 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm doing crafts at a co – workers house.  I was watching TV & stayed home with Brewster.  Then we were getting ready for the week!

 

 

Well it’s finally done!  Myles Kennedy, the singer from Alter Bridge, is releasing his solo album, “Year of the Tiger” on March 9th 2018.  Between Alter Bridge & singing in Slash’s band, he finally has time to release his solo album.  This album has been in the works since 2009.  Slash is still doing his Guns n’ Roses thing.  Alter Bridge I assume are wrapping up their tour for their album “The Last Hero”

I fell asleep to “Neil Young” a greatest hits album, followed by “Prince” the album “1999”

 

When I was released from therapy, I felt a sense of entitlement, “Yay I beat cancer.  Look at me!!!!”  I didn’t realize it then, but I already got the greatest thing ever, a second chance at life & make it better.  Instead I acted terribly, even before I was released & all of my therapy session were done.  Luckily everyone stuck around despite my behavior, since they know that’s nowhere close to what I was like before cancer.  THANK YOU!!!!

In one of the more recent postings I said something like “Hope for the best.  Prepare for the worst.”  You can only do that in certain circumstances.  You can’t spend your entire life looking over your shoulder looking for something bad to happen.  Unless you know something bad is coming just enjoy what you have & look forward to whatever good the future has for you!

The grumpy old baseball analyst for the Toronto Blue Jays, Gregg Zaun, has been fired for inappropriate conduct towards female co-workers.  He had it coming.  If anyone told him he was wrong, he’d get angry & share his displeasure on air.  I never made it anywhere close to any type of professional team, maybe that’s why I disagreed with 99% of what he’d say?
