Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

Music throughout the weekend. “Halestorm”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Tool”, “The Struts”

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

The second I posted Friday’s blog I went to www.youtube.com & there was already a review of the “Halestorm” album “Vicious”.  The album was released at midnight Thursday night.  WOW, I wait before I judge an album, I like to listen to it a few times & digest it.  That review should be a reaction video!

Here is utter ignorance at its best.  You realize they’re not just denying service to the #LGBTQ community!  I assume the rest of us that support the #LGBTQ community would boycott this establishment as well.  From what I know there is no location in Regina.  If I were to pass by one on a trip I might go in, buy a small meal, finish it, thank them & as I’m on my way out I’d shout “I’M GOING TO SPEAK WITH YOUR MANAGEMENT!  YOU JUST SERVED A GAY PERSON!”  Or I’ll just pass by & avoid a heart attack.  What if the employees have no gaydar?

“No, they sound too much like Led Zeppelin” – internet.  OK, if you don’t like Led Zeppelin that’s fine.  If you do like Led Zeppelin, why are you complaining?  Robert Plant, singer of Led Zeppelin, thinks they’re great.  If he doesn’t have a problem with them, why do Led Zeppelin fans?

I love Big Wreck but this sounds much like a specific Led Zeppelin song, other than a general sound.  Ian Thornley even admits that this song was heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin.

Friday was quite/tame here.  We stayed up too late, Kim hit the hay at midnight, while I stayed up to watch ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’.  Kim was grabbing some groceries & taking photos during most of the Blue Jay game, so I watched that since she really doesn’t care for baseball.

Saturday I watched more shark week & went to the Rider game that night.  Kim & Brewster were out & about while I was at the game.

Dear Saskatchewan Roughriders,

Sincerely,

Me.

 

Today is get ready for the week ahead.  Make a vegetable juice, hard boil some eggs, bake some fish, & try to be positive about cardio for 5 straight days as well as other possible workouts.  Kim will get a few groceries, & finish up the little bit of laundry left to do, then a nice long weekend to look forward to!

 

GREAT BIG SEA

4 guys from Newfoundland, Canada.  I think I saw them twice in Regina at ‘The Conexus Arts Center’.  I only own their first 2 albums, on CD.  I bought them in my teen years, the ‘90s.  One in 1996 & the other in 1997.  They released 10 studio albums & I believe band member, Alan Doyle, is currently a solo artist?  They’re known for being from Newfoundland & doing some traditional Newfoundland music.  I grew out of them when I discovered ‘grunge’ about 8-10 years after it exploded.

I must say that on the odd occasion that I do listen to them I like it.  It’s something completely different than my usual rock & metal music.

 

1996   UP

 

1997   PLAY

When these were released, I was still cautiously dipping my toe into heavier music.  I know I wasn’t into metal at the time.

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.
