Friday evening, I watched the baseball game while slightly intoxicated.  It felt like an 18 day work week to me.  I needed to cut loose somewhat.  I don’t even work at a real job, I was just exercising as normal.

Best part of the weekend thus far is as of Saturday after the Jays game they have won 4 games straight & have won 7 of their last 10 games with 7/25 of their everyday roster being on the disabled list.  2 of them are expected back this week.  At the moment they have $85 million not playing due to injury.

As for mother’s day, BBQ burgers are what mom’s craving.  Unfortunately Kim’s mom lives a few hours away.  Happy mother’s day to my mother-in-law.  Sorry I won’t be on here much this weekend as usual.  Especially this weekend, very busy!


If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.


Kim & I will be binge watching “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.  If you haven’t started watching it, what’s wrong with you?  Hahahahahahaha!

We’ve already watched the first season of “Riverdale” on Netflix.  It’s an original Netflix show, but it airs on the CW channel before that episode is on Netflix?  It’s the characters of the Archie Comics in a murder mystery show.

I’ve listened to the new Paramore album “After Laughter”.  It has a distinct 1980s pop sound throughout the album, in a good way.  It’s a light summertime album.  I really like it!  Each song is different.  They don’t get any praise from me the first listen, but by the time I’ve heard them 3 times I’m hooked!  Reminds me off the “Fine Young Cannibals” album “The Raw & The Cooked”!  I love that album also.


Tool, I think we’ll have to wait the entire 10,000 days from the release of “10,000 Days” in 2006.  The good news, we’ve been waiting 10 years already only 17.3 years to go!!!!!!!!!!


25 years ago.  Pearl Jam’s MTV unplugged


I don’t waste my time & energy hating a band.  I just choose not to listen to certain bands such as AC/DC, Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, Metallica, KISS, Guns n’ Roses, etc.  If you like them, it’s all good with me.  I like Motorhead & they’re band where each song sounds similar, I just prefer their sound.  I only have 4 of their albums & 2 of them are greatest hits albums.  I don’t need anymore, they’re all very similar



As for the Rush comment on the previous post.  I like Rush, just has to be post 1985 for me.

Yes, we went out for a fancy supper Thursday night for our 10th anniversary with my parents, grandparents, & Mitch & Rachel. Thanks to my parents & grandparents for supper at The Cottage restaurant! Bottle of wine for the table, escargot for my appetizer, prawns & scallops for my meal. Kim can’t stand the smell of fish/seafood so I rarely get to eat that stuff! I DO LOVE KIMMY!

I wanted to go to this Saturday night put on by the RSO we had other/better plans by the time I heard about it. The song is over an hour long. You know it, it’s in most epic movie trailers. I sang this with my high school choir in Newfoundland in the summer after grade 11. Pretty cool experience that I’ll never forget! Multiple choirs from all around the world! Just listen to it for a bit & I’m sure you’ll recognize it. You’ll be all “HEY, IT’S THAT SONG FROM THAT MOVIE TRAILER!!”

Oh, man a FANTASTIC album!!! Some country, jazzy/crooner, bass drum thumping pop & rock tunes. Incredibly diverse album, now I understand the title “Jekyll & Hyde”. Yes that’s Chris Cornell of “Soungarden” on this track. Didn’t see this one coming? AWESOME!!!

He’s always been outspoken. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album is really good to me!

Hopefully this will be a good album
