People don’t like to hear anything blunt.  So what do I do?  Sugar coat everything in rainbows, sunshine, & flowers, or get right to the root of the issue at hand & not waste anyone’s time?

At some point someone has to address the Elephant in the room & it’s usually me.  If that makes people feel uncomfortable, great!  It also starts a conversation!

“I will be Albatross for…” as long as needed.  I’m not an idiot, nobody has called me that other than me.  If you want anyone to take the roll of an idiot, give it to me or better yet I’ll just take it.

“Albatross” – Big Wreck

How was my weekend?  Forgettable!  I did however get to spend time with Kim, go to a football game with my father have supper with Kim & my parents!  That was the positive part of the weekend.  The rest of it we can forget.  I guess I crossed that fine line of being blunt or rude?

I took all of my anger & frustration out in my exercise.  It’s Monday, a new day!  Time to wipe the slate clean & carry on.

 

The Agonist share it again…

 

Good grief!  Now it’s guns & machetes

OK, I want to see “In Flames” & I can sit through “HELLYEAH” if needed.

Not very close to Saskatchewan, I’m out!

 

I thought there would be an album announcement from “In Flames” today.  Nope just the video above.  My bad?

 

I’ve got it on preorder!

 

Look at what Todd lil’ Deuce did!

Both are totally different to me……………….yes, I have both albums on preorder!

A NETFLIX DOCUMRNTARY GOT ME AGAIN

I fell asleep to ½ of each “Better than Ezra” albums “Deluxe” and “Friction Baby” then I switched to “Barstool Prophets” the album “Crank” & fell asleep finally.

I exercised to “Chevelle” 8 albums on shuffle.

I was very tired today. I got through my exercises, got to the start of my push ups & just didn’t have any gas left in the tank. Somewhat disappointing.

Sunday night we watched a documentary. A trial of a 47 year old white male who shot at a vehicle, parked at a gas station, deep in the suburbs, with four, unarmed, 17 year olds because he didn’t like their loud rap music. How ridiculous is that? As we were watching the show, I had a thought.

Forget the entire race issue, it was never spoken about during the trial, but it was the elephant in the room. Why does anyone need a gun with them 24/7? Because they’re either a bully or a coward, that’s all. Sure you can argue that it’s a right for American citizens. They already have a lightweight gun control law. It’s not working! We all want to just tighten up the law, not take the guns away. If you’re American & your neighbour doesn’t own a gun, why do you?………..right, because you’re living in fear! Great way to go about your life, constantly looking over shoulder? Is that what American freedom is? If so, that’s pretty sad.

Canada isn’t perfect, but I don’t own a gun & I never have. I know of other people who own guns…………for hunting. Am I afraid of them? NO!

Unless you’re in law enforcement or any branch of the military, why do you need a gun? If you use it for hunting only, that’s fine with me, I eat meat, I prefer to buy it from a grocery store or butcher! If you choose to hunt or fish for your meal, that’s fine by me. My dad went out hunting when I was younger. My grandfather did as well & had a gun rack in the basement I believe. I’ve fired a gun at summer camp, guess what? Nobody died or was shot while I was there.

What’s this God given right about carrying a loaded weapon with you 24/7? Here’s the hint America, yes, it’s a right, but it’s not needed! It’s all about responsibility. If I go into a public venue & see a civilian with a firearm. I’m leaving, it’s not needed in any way, shape, or form.

I’m sure some American gun owners would say ‘Well the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary would have been fine if they each had a gun’. NO NRA, NO!

I adore the first 3 Radiohead albums! This is from the first album & this guy nails it.

That’s flat out discrimination against LGBT! Even the fact that people, REAL PEOPLE must have this label attached to them isn’t right. You don’t have to be a member to support the LGBT community!

Nothing will instantly fix anything, my aunt wont come back as much as everyone would like her to. Everyone mourns differently. I shut off the outside world, put on headphones, cry my eyes out, & listen to music. Why? Because those stupid bands, artists, albums are always there for me, & that’s how I mourn. It’s Wednesday at the moment. I still can’t type this without sobbing. I’m sure my uncle & cousins are having a much tougher time than I am.

I can’t stay in this rut having a pity party. I will never forget my aunt. She was hilarious & always quick with a joke. She laughed & didn’t care who heard her! Many good memories of her. I’ll never forget the weekend the Gagnon family came to my parents house, one of many times, & I was living at my parents, maybe even still in high school? My parents had bought some type of raspberry cream liquor in a smallish 20 oz. bottle. It wasn’t cheap, but after 3 or 4 evenings my aunt polished it off. After the Gagnons left to go home my mother said “I can’t believe it! She finished it! Nobody else even tried it?!”, I replied “Sure, but it was a hilarious weekend!”

When I was released from my cancer rehabilitation program, my aunt was in town of course. Anybody needs anything, she’s there ASAP. I was released Thursday, July 26th 2012. Fridays at Boston Pizza are fish bowl Fridays, 3 shots of alcohol in whatever kind of beverage you like. We went to Boston Pizza that evening to celebrate. Fun times! I started shouting that my aunt was so dark from tanning she looked like an Indian. Everyone thought I was being racist about the aboriginal community, I wasn’t. What do you call a person from India? Indian! She would tan so much in the summer it was almost like she oiled up & basted herself like a turkey for Thanksgiving! A very dark roasted turkey! So yes I do have a lot of good memories of her.

How did she die? Very much loved.

She beat stage 2 breast cancer. It came back & went wherever it could, she was down to ½ of a lung & couldn’t breathe. The last time I saw her was in April for her birthday. She was hilarious! We were playing a game of dice, & she was joking about her cancer. “Hey his/her aunt/mother/sister has cancer, let them roll again”. We all knew she was scared, but of course she could joke about it!

My aunt was the 2nd child of 4. Her big brother Rick, her, my mother, & the youngest. Ken. My aunt was 59 in April, my mother will be 57 in August.

It’s been an emotional roller coaster of a week. Next week I’ll fire up my exercise routine & try to only focus on the good memories I have of my aunt! There’s quite a few of them. Thanks for keeping my family & I in your thoughts!

Yes, when I’m going through a tough time I fill my emotional hole with music. Not necessarily the music that reminds me of that individual, but stuff I like. So, here’s what I’ve been listening to this week…..

Thursday evening we went to my favourite pub for supper & hear not 1 but 2 Foo Fighters songs with a pop/country tune sandwiched between them. Weird music channel?

We’ll just let the human race die out or become an endangered species at this point? That sure seems where we are headed.

Friday evening I watched the Blue Jays win against Detroit, Riders lost to Edmonton Eskimos, that was my evening. Kim went to bed after the baseball game. She wanted to watch something else instead of a football game. I told her I could watch the game in our bedroom, but she falls asleep very quick.

Saturday was more of the same, went out in the evening for a few things needed for Sunday & watched a movie on Netflix. Quiet weekend!

Sunday this is our beginning of a few rather busy days, stuff to do & the coputron isn’t one of them! Baseball today, then the all star break for 4 or 5 days. Mid-summer break for baseball players, busy times for Kim & I. I’m fine, just doctor appointments & such.

I say either learn the new age of concert etiquette, or leave your phone in your vehicle. Before every movie in a theater you’re told to turn off your phone. I think any live show should have the same disclaimer before it, concert, movie, musical, play, opera, etc.

There were 2 separate shootings in the USA last week, both by police officers. Before you flip out about the police shooting people, hear me out. This has nothing to do with race. If Americans gave up the right to carry a loaded weapon, or if these victims didn’t have them, there would be little to no reason for police to worry about these situations.

When you hear gun shots, everybody runs away, except the police. What do the police officers do? Run towards the gun shots!

Take guns away from “common people”, this crap might not happen?

The question I usually think of is why wasn’t this on the news so often in the ’80s or anytime before that? Did it not happen as often? If so what the @#&^% happened, why now?

There’s a video on this youtube channel which is not available in my region, a Daily Show with Trevor Noah?

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwWhs_6x42TyRM4Wstoq8HA

I’ll try to get it on the blog Facebook blog site? The police in Las Vegas admitted in 2011 that there was a problem so they changed the training methods and police shootings have dropped 36%, not perfect, but better.

What on earth does blues guitarist “Reignwolf”, his mom calls him Jordan Cook, from Saskatoon play at a concert? He only has 3 singles on iTunes? I don’t think 3 songs could fill more than 20 minutes. I remember seeing him in 2000 in Calgary. He’s been playing guitar forever, yet no full length album? He could at least record a live set of 40-55 minutes?

This one of the three biggest surprises this year so far!!

The Needle Drop, best albums of the year……..so far!

There’s quite a bit of stuff on TV regarding O.J. Simpson. I watched the HBO series “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” & the 5 part mini series “O.J. : Made in America”. I think it was the most opportune time for him to allegedly murder his ex-wife & her new boyfriend. N.W.A. & the Rodney King tragedy were all over the news at that time & in the same state. Black people being black people & white people abusing or accusing any person of colour for whatever they wanted to? So of course O.J.’s team of lawyers were going to play the colour/race card. Unfortunately people forgot about the colour red?

It’s long past due that our society allows discrimination for colour, religion, sexuality, or anything else. It’s what’s on the inside that matters………….literally! Anybody that bleeds, bleeds red! The blood DNA was a slam dunk case against retired football star O.J. Simpson. There is no doubt in most peoples minds that he was guilty. His lawyers took the spotlight off of the evidence & put it on black people & all of the senseless racism going on at the time. I was a teenager at the time & even I thought he was guilty. Yes, I am caucasian. Am I racist? No! There’s always at least one bad apple in EVERY group & yes, I’m including caucasians.

Nobody’s perfect so EVERY stereotype is right but with many exceptions, enough to make EVERY stereotype wrong! I don’t care what your skin colour is, your religion or sexuality is! Are you a good person? If so, can we be friends?

It frustrates me that 50% of the time I turn on the TV during a breaking news story that there has been a mass shooting somewhere. It’s not really breaking news if it’s so frequent and continues to become even more frequent?

No I’m not saying Canada is better, we have crime, stereotypes, gangs, etc. Now it seems like every other person is pissed off at a certain group of people because the group is not the same as everyone that person associates with? That would be boring if we were all the same, but it would probably decrease the amount of unwanted violence? Just be you & who cares what anyone thinks of you outside of your circle of friends & family?! If someone chooses to kill or harm another person, the world will more than likely judge them & their actions, not you.

Good grief I’ve written 2 chapters of a novel! On to the music/pop culture portion of this thing.

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.
