Music throughout the weekend. “U2”, “Muse”, “Odds”,
Friday I stayed up late to watch the Blue Jays win their first game after a 5 game losing streak. They also made me look like a genius though. Socrates Brito was cut Friday afternoon & Jonathan Davis was called up from AA to play center field.
Of course we watched some shows we both like first, “The Ellen Degeneres Show” & “World of Dance”. “World of Dance” is recorded for Kim, if I never see it again I’d be fine & not have to bite my tongue. We both love “The Ellen Degeneres Show”. I record it in the afternoon & we watch it as soon as Kim gets home. Kim’s been working overtime this past week. Brewster lays down & stares at the door waiting for her, usually he waits for her around 4:00 pm. Friday he was waiting & whining at 1:00 pm?
Saturday I spent WAY too much time online looking for ear buds. Almost everything requires Bluetooth or only available online. Having an iPod classic that still works is not great all of the time! I fall asleep to my iPod & I’ve ruined my 2 recent pairs of ear buds. The “Bose” ear buds I got for Christmas 2017 lasted 6 months & Kim’s Apple ear buds have no to little audio in the left ear bud. Before that I used “Senhieser” ear buds from 2013 until 2017.
Every type of ear buds from Best Buy are only available online or the ones in store are $100 – $350. I found some cheaper ones at London Drugs, but Kim had left to get groceries by that time. Kim went out grocery shopping while I watched the baseball game. She came home, made supper, & I handled the dishwasher & the hand wash dishes, that’s quite common here.
Today we (Mitch, Rachel, Kim & I) made brunch. My parents & grandparents came here for brunch. Mini quiches, banana bread, toast, fruit, yogurt parfaits with granola & fruit, & coffee. I’m going to take care of the dishes, since Kim did the shopping & cooking despite my offering to help.
Kim has to grab 2 or 3 things & I’ll hard boil the eggs for the week & I’ve already made my vegetable juice for the week. It felt weird putting away the bread. There’s usually no bread in our house.
Alter Bridge are done recording their 6th studio album of 14 songs. Mixing shortly! Facebook status is as follows…
“Tracking for AB 6 is now 100% finished! Mixing starts very soon. Can’t wait to share these songs with all of you”
A new Big Wreck should be out soon I hope! So far they’ve released 2 singles only. I was hoping that Friday’s single would be a preorder on iTunes. I get pretty anxious waiting for an album to be released when I get a single or preorder for it.
One of the big 4 in metal. Anthrax, Metallica, Megadeth, & Slayer. Anthrax seems to be the best mix of punk & metal of the 4. The other 3 lean more towards the metal side of things. I have 15 of their albums, a friend of mine had them & he’s a big fan of them, & 80s metal in general. I’m not going to give you a song from each album. I’ll give you 3 earlier songs & 3 songs from recent albums.
