Facebook keeps telling me to “Boost my Posts” for $4-$13 so more people will see it.  I’m not making any money from this blog, so I’m relying on you to share any & every post on Facebook (publically) or email please!

Friday ended with us getting ready for Saturday.

My family, including Sherry & James, came over for pizza & Kim made carrot cupcakes.  I had no plans to have a birthday celebration this year.  Corey & Jolene’s daughter, 4 year old Hannah, asked “auntie” Kim if I was having a birthday party & if she was invited.  So I had a birthday party.  Hannah helped me blow out the candle on my cupcake after pizza.

I was considering a carrot cake from a bakery with “My Little Pony” on it for Hannah, so I know she’d like it.  It will taste the same no matter what’s on it!  I figured “As long as Hannah has a fun time”.

My birthday wasn’t really on Saturday, it’s on Tuesday but I can’t really drink multiple Guinness beer & Electric Cherry beer on Tuesday.  That’s when I exercise, back to the grind tomorrow & perhaps some fish tacos somewhere close for supper.  I don’t need anything fancy a pint of beer & some fish tacos is more than good enough for me!

Today is just getting ready for the week, boiling eggs, making a veggie juice, Kim has gone grocery shopping, etc.  Pretty normal Sunday for us.

 

Fall Out Boy – M A N I A

I like this album.  I don’t love it & I don’t hate it, I like it.  I would never consider them as a “rock” band.  More as a guitar based pop band.  If you’re looking for a rock band, you’re at the wrong place.  Their first album just suddenly appeared in my iTunes music years ago.  They use a lot of samples from older groups, at least on their last 3 albums, including this one.  I’d prefer a band that performs the song & play with a recorded backing track made by someone else, that’s probably why I don’t listen to rap music.  I’d give this album 3/5 stars.  The album is only 10 songs long.  I prefer longer albums of 12 or more songs, unless it’s “Dream Theater” or “Opeth”, then 5 songs that have a few songs around 8 minutes & 20 minutes.

Singer, Patrick Stump, explains the song writing process in “Fall Out Boy”

I don’t know of any album release dates other than “Myles Kennedy” his solo album “Year of the Tiger” on March 9th.  Lead singer for “Alter Bridge”

 

Jack White has banned cell phones at his concerts.  Here’s my slightly different approach.

Cell Phones.  Turn it to vibrate, keep it with you for emergency. Warn people before the show (like in movie theaters). If it vibrates, step out to receive the text or call. If the musicians see your phone on they should stop, since you’re busy with your text or email, until security tosses the person out. I wonder what people did before cell phones? Right they went to a concert & enjoyed it for the memorable experience!

My friend from grade 9, Mr. Timothy Wong on cello!  We’ve always kept in touch.  BFF!

If you can’t keep it in your pants they’ll take it away! (Pun intended).  Male or female!

Dag Nam it!  I’m old, or young to some.  I graduated high school in June of ’98 (20 years ago).

 

You don’t have to be white to be racist!  You just need to be an idiot & post garbage like this on www.youtube.com.  Enjoy your lonely life!

VERY OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

So in the past week we saw “Rush”, “Slayer”, ”Elton John”, & “Neil Diamond” retire.  “Elton John” might continue recording but not tour?  That’s gonna be one rocking retirement home someday!
