No exercises this week. I’m too tired. If I had done them this week the quality of them would be terrible. Quality over quantity.
I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour & The Shape”
I’m hesitant to do a metal band review. I don’t want to turn dedicated readers away. Let me know of I should? If you’d prefer I don’t, this blog will likely end around June or July of this year.
After such a long time, well 7 years this July, every day is starting to feel like Groundhog Day. Exercise for 75 – 90 minutes every day, eat relatively healthy, & wait patiently for the weekend to fly by, & repeat. It feels very redundant, long time to get to this point, yet it feels as though I’m wired to stick to 1 thing & it’s getting boring. Sure, I change up the order of my exercises, still kind of ho hum though. I’m exhausted after my exercises & then find it difficult to get the motivation to hit the shower.
I just couldn’t do what I should have been doing this week. It might feel cold outside but it has been sunny & that makes our place too hot for me +24C or more in here (75.2F). I can’t turn on the A/C yet, so I’ll likely suffer in this heat doing my exercises the next few weeks.
At least Kim has today off with me.
I had “Dream Theater” preordered & got the full release last night. 10 songs averaging 6:30 minutes. Progressive metal at it’s nerdiest.
I’m pretty sure this year will have numerous metal release, (Mark Morton (Lamb of God guitarist), In Flames, Lamb of God, Chevelle, Anthrax, Megadeth…) releases that I’m interested in as well as a new release from “Big Wreck”, & “Tool”. Big Wreck is releasing a single. Late last night I saw a new song on www.youtube.com
It’s a standalone single, I’m go to hold off until it’s a preorder single for the new album.
I think Facebook needed a break like I did this week? To say that Facebook has been quiet this week would be an understatement.
However televised baseball spring training games start on Monday. WOO HOO!
A few movies I’d like to see & possibly purchase this year?
There are others movies I’d like to see this year but that’s enough for now. As for Motley Crue, I loved the book, but was never a fan of their “Hair Metal” music, or “Hair Metal” in general.
How many times have I heard this? Well I didn’t get into them until after their 2nd album was released for a few months, I’ve heard this after multiple albums though!
THE BIRDS OF SATAN
This is 1 of 4 side projects by Taylor Hawkins, drummer for Foo Fighters. The other 3 are separate projects 2 of which I’ll discuss later. The 3rd is a cover band called “Chevy Metal”. He’s the drummer & singer for each band. He easily has a higher vocal range than Dave Grohl. When Foo Fighters perform “The Pretender”, Taylor takes the high lead vocals in the chorus & Dave takes the lower harmony, I’m guessing this is to save Dave’s voice a bit. As for who is the better drummer, that would be a hard pick. Dave stole him from Alanis Morissette while she exploded to fame, touring her album “Jagged Little Pill”, which worked out well for Foo Fighters & especially Taylor.
This is only a 7 song EP & it’s the only release from The Birds of Satan.
