Music throughout the weekend. “Dave Grohl”, “The Struts”, “Lamb of God”, “Bruce Springsteen”.
Relatively quiet weekend. Friday I watched the Toronto Blue Jays. Did the same on Saturday. Stopped the game on Saturday while visiting with Tim Wong & his kids. I’ve been friends with Tim since grade 9 (1994-1995?). Nice to see him. I see him about once a year, since he lives in Edmonton. Always a welcome visit when he’s in town. Kim had a work BBQ on Saturday. She left just before 3:00 pm & came home quite late (2:50 pm – 11:40 pm roughly), what was I doing? I watched “Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi” after Tim & his kids left.
Today is our get ready for the week ahead, I’ve made my juice & Kim’s out grocery shopping. I’ll bake some fish & Kim will put her lunches together once we hard boil some eggs.
Brewster is getting old. Kim took him to the Vet this week. He’s 12.5 years old, both ears are infected, & on a scale of 1 – 6 his heart murmur is at a 4. Gets me more than a little worried.
I can’t wait to see “The Meg”. That might rank up there for me with the movie “Jaws”?
JIMMY EAT WORLD
A pop/punk band made up of 7 people with 8 albums. Again, more emphasis on the pop than the punk. They made their debut in 1996 with the album “Static Prevails”. I own 4 of their albums. Not the first 2 releases or the last 2 releases. They’ve hit the peak of their career for me. I didn’t get into them until 2001 on their 3rd album “Bleed American” when I saw the video for the song “The Middle”.
2001 BLEED AMERICAN
2007 CHASE THIS LIGHT
I can see how people would get really bored with this band fast. Very redundant with the majority of the songs in very simple 4/4 time. If I’m listening to stuff like this or a very progressive type of music, I’m probably not thinking about the music & have just tuned out of everything. If it’s very progressive I might be focusing or thinking too hard about what’s going on in the music.
The more you share this, the more readers I get. No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.
