Music throughout the weekend.  “Lamb of God”, “Pink”, & “In Flames”

 

I was behind Friday night, I recorded the baseball game, we record everything.  So I didn’t get to it until 9:30 pm.  It went into the 12th inning I always record an extra hour & 1/2 just in case this happens.  Final score was whooping 1-0 for the Blue Jays.  I didn’t go to bed until 1:00 am.

Saturday we had a visit from a friend of ours from Edmonton.  She’s going to school there, she’s a year younger than my brother but hasn’t had her birthday yet.  Short visit but a good visit.  I hard boiled eggs & made my veggie juice for the week.  Kim went out with her sister & a mutual friend for manicures.  Kim’s sister turns 40 on Monday.  I’m next in line to turn 40 in our group of friends.  Kim’s birthday is in October, she’ll turn #*.

Today we’re just watching TV.  Kim got groceries this morning & today’s baseball game has just started.

I’ve got “Sum 41” on preorder for a July release.  I’m just waiting on the following albums to be released this year.  Big Wreck, Alter Bridge, Tool, Lamb of God, Anthrax, & I think Pretty Vicious are still to come this year.

Guitarist, Mark Morton (Lamb of God), breaks down their breakout album “Ashes of the Wake” now 15 years old.  I bought the 4 bonus songs & attached it to the original album I have.

We rented the movie “Vice” Saturday night.  It was very interesting, a look behind the scene of Bush Junior’s presidency with Dick Cheney as his vice president.

My take away from this movie is that Cheney made Bush jr. look like a fool.  Cheney said they should attack Iraq for WMDs, not Bush’s idea, this was Cheney’s idea.  The world complained about Bush but he was Cheney’s puppet.  At least that’s what I took away from the movie?  More late night baseball for me Saturday night.

Yeah their name is all in lower case letters.  From looking at iTunes, I guess they had 3 albums?  I own the first 2 & the second one isn’t on iTunes it’s called “Daisy”.  Their first album was among my favourites when it was released in 1995.  Think along the style of “Counting Crows” & “Matchbox 20”.  I REALLY like this group but often forget to listen to this album “Happy Nowhere”…..

 

1995   HAPPY NOWHERE
