I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the new album “Vicious”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “The Pleasure & the Greed”


Let me explain this before you judge me.  When I make a friend, it’s always a strong bond.  I have many friends, some in the city, some in other provinces of Canada, & some in other countries.  My friends are nothing short of AWESOME!

I was in the hospital for almost exactly 4 ½ years.  Many people came to visit me & that was great!  I went into the hospital having just turned 28 at the end of January 2008.

I missed out on a TON of stuff, as I expected.  The world doesn’t come to a grinding halt for anyone & it shouldn’t.  It will only slow down briefly, to mourn.

My friends did exactly what I would have wanted them to do!  Slow down for a bit, & carry on with their lives.

I was at a BBQ hosted by some friends, since a mutual friend, his wife & toddler were in town.  I realized that I didn’t know many people there & the people I did know have completely different lives now, with marriage & kids now.  I don’t blame any of them for doing what they wanted to do with their lives.  I’m actually very impressed by all of them being great parents, something I’m not likely to do.  I like kids, they’re fun!

I realized that I’m not 28 anymore.  My friends have kids & other circles of friends, & that’s a very good thing!  Priorities shifted once they had their own families to care for, & that’s where their priorities should be.

I guess what I’m trying to say is I was in a group of great people, & I clammed up!  I’ve also developed anxiety.  I was worrying last Friday about being in a large group.  How did this happen, I don’t know?  If I’m in a group of more than 10 people, I feel like the outcast.  It’s all in my head, I know that.  It’s tough for me to meet new people, since I just assume they see an iPatch & a wheelchair, other than what’s inside the wheelchair & under the iPatch.

This is stuff I need to get over, nobody else needs to change anything!

Apple Music vs. Spotify.  For me, same thing, different pile.



Tool say they’re releasing an album next year.  I’ve heard this story for the last 3 years.  I’ll believe it when I have it.  This will be there follow up to “10,000 Days” released in 2006.  Roughly 12 years later, I’m expecting an INCREDIBLE album.

I’m a HUGE fan of Tool.  Tool is NOT a band that fits into a specific box.  Rock, metal, pop, tribal, rhythmic, etc.  They kind of cover it all, I prefer to call them a progressive band.  Not a specific type of music, just music




I rarely listen to this group anymore.  For me, they come off as far too polished to be a rock band.  Everything on their albums are perfect & in sync.  When I listen to them I always wonder how much work does the producer & sound engineer have to do, or is that just how they are?  I saw them live a few years ago.  It was very much the same as listening to one of their recordings.  They’re either really good musicians or really good at faking it live.  I have 6 albums purchased on CD, nothing from iTunes.  I own 6 of 10 studio albums, the 10 albums do not include their Greatest Hits or the 2 live albums on iTunes.  This is the rock band my mother didn’t approve of when I was a young teen, but bought tickets for the family to see them at The Casino, because she wanted to see them.  I did listen to them recently, I really have nothing against their music, & they’re a band I’ve kind of grown out of.




1995     COLLECTIVE SOUL   (Yes I played 3 songs from this album with my first band.)  This album does give me a nostalgic feeling, hearing these songs.





1999   DOSAGE


2000   BLENDER


2004    YOUTH


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