I fell asleep to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Beautiful Midnight”

Universal remote is on the fritz.  No music while exercising. But I’m listening to a TON of “Dead Sara” & “Devin Townsend Project”

 

Back to reality this week.  I don’t know about anyone else, but that felt like a very short weekend.  New vegetable smoothie/juice in the morning.  2 ½ cups of water, ½ cup orange juice, ½ container of grape tomatoes, LOADS of fresh spinach, 3 pieces of celery, 1 carrot, & 2 cooked beets.  Really tasty!  Next week I want to add a little ginger.  For breakfast I have that all blended in our Vitamix (1 pitcher a week), a hardboiled egg, a piece of fruit (usually an apple), & a rice cake.  My lunch is 1 week of fish & lemon juice or a week of deli meat turkey wraps with ½ a slice of cheese & a dab of hot sauce.  During the afternoon I have hummus with rice thins, fruit, or some yogurt.  Supper is usually something with quinoa & chicken.

This isn’t a diet!  I like the food I eat, I can maintain this food regiment.  We don’t keep bread, chocolate, chips, or any other type of junk food in the house.  Out of sight out of mind.

Yes I drink alcohol only on the weekend or some time off at home, the lake or visiting relatives out of province.  During the week I drink close to a gallon of water.  My “medication” gives me dry mouth, then I get up to pee once or twice a night.

 

If it’s a special occasion I’ll have some sugar, whatever is in the baking or ice cream, not much though.  Everything in moderation.

My doctor at the cancer clinic has me on over the counter stuff.  Baby Aspirin, vitamin E, & vitamin C.  I know have to eat breakfast before I exercise.  I take the vitamins 3 times a day, & the Aspirin in the morning with my morning pills.  Yes, I’m 38 years old & have an evening & morning pill case for the week.  YAY…..beats the alternative though!

I’ve been eating this way for roughly 4 years & exercising 5 days a week.  I like this & I feel better than ever.

 

 

GRETA VAN FLEET

 

4 guys out of Detroit.  Here are songs from their album, which is actually 2 EPs they put together & released on iTunes.  They plan to have an album out by the end of the summer.  Yes, the band that will always be instantly compared to Led Zeppelin.

I don’t know why so many people hate them for sounding like a carbon copy of Led Zeppelin.  When you hear the guys voice, BOOM Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin.  You hear the guitar BOOM Jimmy Page.  The drummer & bass player aren’t John Bonham & John Paul Jones.  If the singer’s voice sounds like Robert Plant, wouldn’t you try to create music like Led Zeppelin?

If your singer sounds like another famous singer, go with it & let the kids have fun & make some cash.  If a band is new to the music scene wouldn’t you be inspired or influenced by another, wouldn’t you go with it?  The Beatles, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, U2, etc.  Proven artists that can make a living doing what they like.

I figure there are 2 ways to take this as a Led Zeppelin fan “WHOA, they’re totally ripping off Led Zeppelin!” Or, “Hey, this sounds like Led Zeppelin is creating new music, AWESOME!”

Personally, I have nothing against them & I like their music.  I’ll ride this train as far as it will go.

Songs from their album “From the Fires”

 

This guy’s complaining about their clothing?  Lay off it, it doesn’t affect the music, might as well look for more imperfections to concern yourself with.

Now I want to be a guitar player for ‘Queens of the Stone Age’ then I’ll get a fancy house.

http://loudwire.com/queens-of-the-stone-age-troy-van-leeuwen-purchases-1-85-million-camarillo-estate/

My ranking of their albums worst to first is….

“Era Vulgaris”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Rated R”, “Lullabies to Paralyze”, “…Like Clockwork”, “Songs for the Deaf”, & “Villains”

After “Era Vulgaris” it gets quite tricky since the rest are all pretty great.

 

Disturbed is a band I grew out of & can’t say I miss them aka I’m not in my early 20s anymore.  I own “The Sickness” & “Believe” on CD, then I stopped.

Hahahaha!  Metallica covered by Tremonti playing Hello Kitty guitars!

Some I like, others I won’t touch.  I don’t consider myself a full blown metal head though.

http://loudwire.com/13-non-metal-artists-that-metalheads-love/

‘Queen’, ‘Bowie’, ‘Prince’, ‘Bob Marley’ (in small doses), ‘Beastie Boys’, ‘Pink Floyd’, some ‘Depeche Mode’, & yes ‘Classical Music’

 

Saw ‘Deadpool 2’ last night.  Much like the first one, there’s a lot of….

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

It’s a good one, much like the first one that way.  I watched the first “Deadpool” over 3 days last week.  I’ll buy this when it’s out on blu-ray!  I laughed too much & I know I missed a few jokes due to laughing at the previous one, also like the first one, which I’ve easily watched 20-25 times now.

 

Facebook is bringing a streaming music.  Because you don’t have enough options for that yet.  I think they’re a little late to the party?

The N.Y. Yankees played in Toronto this evening.  Toronto lost again.  I checked the score when I got home.  It’s not pretty, after a 7-2 loss they’re now 26W-34L.

Come the trade deadline on July 31st, they’ll be shopping for prospects while dumping older players who have contracts that expire at the end of the year!  Right now for the 2nd season in a row, they have the oldest average age of players in all of the MLB!

 

Please share this, I’m not profiting from this at all.  Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.
