Music throughout the weekend.  “Matthew Good Band”, “U2”, “The Struts”, “Big Wreck”, & “Lamb of God”

 

We went to my parents’ place on Thursday for my father’s 60th birthday.  His birthday was on Monday, but this was the most convenient time to celebrate.  Bitter sweet since my friend’s father died this week.

We had a “Chili’s” restaurant in Regina, now it’s called “Rotisserie”.  Think KFC without any grease, WAY better!  1 bucket of BBQ ribs, garlic potato wedges, ceaser salad, McCain deep & delicious chocolate, a 2L of iced tea (sweet tea), & 1 bucket of chicken.

Friday my in-laws got into town in the afternoon.  We went to Sherry & James’ place in the afternoon to hang out & have supper there, BBQ hamburgers.  We came home fairly late, but Brewster had a great time running around in their backyard.  My cold is finally starting to fade away.

Saturday everyone was here for make your own pizza supper.  I ended up sleeping until 11 am, got up, showered, got dressed, & had my lunch.  Realized the dishwasher was full of clean dishes.  Emptied the dishwasher made my veggie juice for the week & 1 of many teas w/ lemon & honey.

My in-laws drove home Sunday in the late morning.  I said goodbye to them Saturday night in case I slept in, & of course I slept in.  I got up, did all of my morning crap.  Had lunch, boiled some eggs & we went to our friends’ place for our “nephews” first birthday.

It took the little guy a while to fully embrace the 1st birthday party cupcake, but he ended up doing the right way eventually……….it was EVERYWHERE!  A couple of wash clothes later & he was ready to go!

We came home & Kim watched “American Idol” aka a talent contest ruled by 3 celebrities who offer very few if any constructive criticism to help the contestants.  I’d rather not watch it, but I want to spend time with my wife.

Today should be a lazy day of TV, a little bit of laundry, & not much else.

I know that most of you aren’t into metal.  Don’t worry it doesn’t bite & “Uncle” Chris will always hold your hand through it.  I’m going to do a metal group followed by a non-metal group.  Just so you don’t feel overloaded with metal music.

INTO ETERNITY CONCERT, THAT I DIDN’T GO TO.

An underground metal band based in Regina.  This group made me dip my toe into metal music with their 3rd album “Buried in Oblivion”.  I believe the first album was recently put on iTunes.  They just released their 6th album last year after a decade of the odd show here & there.  They tour all over the world & they’ve gone on tour with some big name metal acts like “Megadeth” & “Dream Theater”.  I have the “Gigantour” DVD when they toured with “Megadeth”.  “Into Eternity” & “Opeth” are easily the 2 heaviest bands I listen to, they can also sing you a lullaby though.  I didn’t go to this concert.  My brother was going to take me, but he’s waiting for surgery.  He has bone spurs on his shoulders, it’s hard for him to turn his neck, lift things, & his arms go numb sometimes.  He gets migraines if he doesn’t lay down every 45 minutes.  I figured he likely shouldn’t lift my chair or go to a concert.

I’d love to see them but not at the expense of my brother’s health.  Cheap tickets, $15 for an advanced tickets.  I’ll keep this brief for you.
