Music throughout the weekend.  New “Into Eternity” song from their upcoming album.  “Pentatonix”, “Into Eternity”, “Dead Sara”, “Foo Fighters”, “Matthew Good Band”, & “Queens of the Stone Age

 

All of the iTunes & streaming music stuff is true.  Streaming & vinyl will be the only options to get music next year.  This will likely anger musicians depending on the contract they’ve signed with their label.  Just because I think it’s utterly terrible, doesn’t mean you have to!  I just want the option to own my music.  “Here it is, cheap music……………&……………. now you can’t have it!”-Apple.  Can’t beat them join them.  BOOOOOOOOOOOO!  I plan on buying some vinyl but I will stream most of my music.  I really hope this will be a fast fading fad.  I can’t afford a ton of vinyl, 4 or 5 bands I’ll continue to purchase on vinyl, maybe more, but it will depend on finances & other stuff.

Stayed in Friday & watched the Toronto Blue Jays surprisingly beat the N.Y. Yankees!  WOW!!!!  Come July 31st they will “drain the swamp” you may not recognize many players if you follow the Blue Jays.  I think their current Short-Stop, Aledmys Diaz has earned his spot, whenever $20,000,000 Short-Stop Troy Tulowitzki (who has not played any baseball since July 7th, 2017 due to injury) should have to earn his spot on the roster.  If I had the cash I’d give him the $40,000,000 for the next 2 years left on his contract to NOT play with the Blue Jays.  He’s SO not the player he was in 2015 when they got him.

Saturday it was HOT outside.  We went to Sherry & James’ to hang out in their backyard & throw back a few wobbly pops.  Kim & I just couldn’t find a movie we were in the mood to watch.  I still had some of the Netflix TV series “Daredevil” to watch & then we just watched some of “Friends” on Netflix.  Pretty tame Saturday night after leftovers of Spaghetti & meat sauce.

Today should be fairly relaxing.  I made my vegetable juice already, we’ve got hardboiled eggs done too.  Little bit of laundry, maybe bake some fish & watch the final game of a 3 game series of the Yankees in Toronto.

 

THE TEA PARTY

 

I’ll tell you right away, I am not an expert when it comes to this Canadian band.  I’m a casual fan though.  This is one of the numerous Canadian bands from the ‘90s that has reunited in the last few years.  I think I’ve seen them twice, probably at a touring festival in Saskatoon & once for sure with the “Matthew Good Band” at the ‘Conexus Arts Center’ way back in the ‘90s or early 2000s.  I only own 5 of their albums on CD.  I purchased them long before iTunes or streaming sites were all the rage.  Apple has classified them as ‘Metal’ in my iTunes.  I would have to disagree with that statement.  Very talented band with a large influence from eastern music.

When I saw them live, there was a lot of me thinking to myself “What’s that instrument?  Or that instrument?  Now they’re switching to that instrument?”  I didn’t know the names or sounds of the instruments, but they all came together to form a familiar song.  I should also mention that they’re a trio.  Bass, drums, & guitar by the lead singer.
