I fell asleep to “In Flames” the new album “Battles”

More stretching today, no music.  I just do sets of 20 throughout the day.  Oddly enough, my foot tingles only when I stretch.  The other times I’m fine, until I try to do my exercise.  I’ll try to do something then my body chimes in “You can’t do that idiot that still hurts”!  I hate it when my body’s right!

Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link.

I was keeping it small this year.  Mitch, Rachel, Corey, Jolene, Hannah, James, Sherry, my parents, my grandparents, & of course Kim.  Saturday night we all had supper at Bobby’s Tavern.  After supper everyone but my parents & grandparents came back to our place.  We’re all getting old, I was in bed by 11:00pm.  Corey & Jolene brought me some Rebellion beer & a gift card for more beer when needed.  Little Hannah (3) brought me a fantastic painting with a big rainbow!  It’s on display on our shelves beside our front door.

Sunday morning we went to my parents to see my cousin from Saskatoon & her 5 month old baby.  Dad was making eggs benedict, so we made sure it didn’t go to waste.  Sunday & Monday, I was just tired.

Monday my parents took Kim & I out for lunch.  Kim & Dad took the day off.  We came home & tried not to make any sudden movements.  I think Kim won that one.  I came in here just to check my email, by the time I went back to the living room, Kim & Brewster were asleep on the couch.  If Brewster can get on Kim’ lap, he’s out cold!

 

Original Live lineup on the way!!!!  The new lineup is good too, different but good!

Well you can read the article between Maynard James Keenan & Canada’s radio host George Strombo.  I can’t get the audio to work?

 

Behind the track “You don’t even know” by “Big Wreck”

 

I’m not the smartest individual when it comes to politics.  I’m pretty sure the mass shooting in a Mosque in Quebec are somehow related to Trumps ban on immigration of 7 mid-eastern countries.  Now he’s helping/causing terrorism in Canada.  Whatever terrorist group did this is saying “We don’t care what race or religion we kill.  As long as someone dies.”  Well I hope Trump is happy, the majority of us aren’t!

Don’t forget people new “Big Wreck” album on Friday.  Only 3 sleeps right Mitch Fraser!

 

Did anyone else notice that the movie “1984” was among the top movie rentals on the weekend on iTunes?  Coincidence?

 

Well Ben Affleck says he’ll still act in the DC movies, directing NO!  If he’s not directing at least he’s still acting in it.

Dave Grohl listens to his first band “Scream” on Sonic Highways outtakes

I don’t think anyone likes listening to themselves.  Even your outgoing message on a phone for message manager.  Even on the few recordings I’ve been a part of, everybody hears their mistakes, not the good stuff and say “Oh, I should have done this instead of that”!

 

Trump wanted to make his mark.  He did already & it was an EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s A LOT OF HATRED!  In a weird way he divided everyone while bringing us together.  Most of us can agree Trump’s not the person for the job.  Can we get Michelle Obama to take over & have Ellen Degeneres as her running partner?

5 YEAR PLAN?

I fell asleep to “Coheed and Cambria” the album “The Color Before The Sun” I’ve listened to this album many, many times.  Somewhere in this song there is LANGUAGE!!!!  I don’t hear it?  If you do, please teach me?

 

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “As The Palaces Burn”

If you like what you see, feel free to share the link with others who might enjoy this.  I don’t bite………………………..very hard!  Hahahaha!

 

I went into full panic mode yesterday.  I wrote an email to a person.  The tone of the email, could have been taken wrong and it was.  Now I can totally see how that could be misunderstood.  My intent is not to hurt anyone.  EVER!  There was no foul language or name calling from anyone, all is well.  Moving on……………………

 

I don’t think a 5 year plan is very realistic.  I like to have things mapped out for me.  But something came up out of nowhere.  Kim & I spent 4.5 years either living in a hospital or going to a hospital.  I’ve never had a 5 year plan, & cancer was the last thing on my mind & wouldn’t have been in my plan?  If I can make a plan for an evening & it works out, I’m pleasantly surprised!  Life tends to get in the way of a person’s normal routine.

 

James Corden commercial is beaten down.  Cool it, Apple stock is already dropping at a steady rate!  Instead of complaining, cancel your account.  Click a button or waste your energy by flipping out?

This is all over the “In Flames” Facebook timeline.  Older die hard “In Flames” fans complain constantly about them not being as heavy as they used to be.  Don’t get the album then out of sight, out of mind?

It’s very subjective in the end.  I thought the last 2 albums were really good?

 

I’m lucky my iPod classic (160 gb) still works & it does all I want it to!  I don’t use Apple ear buds.  I use a different brand of wired ear buds, & (Knock on wood) I’ve had no problem with them!

I’m still on the fence about getting an iPod touch when my iPod classic dies?  Maybe I’ll send it with a note asking for a battery replacement & they can charge me for that instead?  I don’t have any type of cell phone & I don’t see owning one anytime in the near or distant future unless all of the telecommunication companies abolish land lines?

 

They don’t need to do that, talk to the people that own www.google.com they’re already looking over our shoulder.  Ever gone on www.youtube.com & find it odd that the advertisements are tailored to your location, or your preferences?

1984 is already happening in a way?  Google is always looking over our shoulder if they want to?

 

Rush address the future of the band.  If you miss them, I’m sure the local rock station will play “Tom Sawyer” 3 times a day, as they have done for at least 33 years of my 36 year long life.

Article/interview with Myles Kennedy of “Alter Bridge” the full album “The Last Hero” will be released on October 7th

http://www.glidemagazine.com/171127/myles/

Cool video!

 

LANGUAGE!!!!  This guy just makes me laugh.  REALLY, don’t flip out about every tiny rather insignificant thing or other people’s opinion about a band.  Oh no, people don’t like Tool?  That’s it the world’s over!

Top 10 “Tool” songs

I guess that means the song “Judith” by “A Perfect Circle” is about Maynard’s mother.  I knew that, just thought I’d clear that up for you, just in case?  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I downloaded the Apple update, yep it’s ugly, and it changed the look of both iTunes & Apple Music.  Everything works, it’s just laid out differently.  Give it some time, we’ll get the hang of it.  As soon as you get used to it, 2 months later there will be another update from Apple.  Hahahaha!  I said I’m holding out for the iPhone 17, at this rate I’ll have it by the summer or fall of next year.  Maybe I’ll hold out until the iPhone 35 is out?

 

I hope it’s true but it likely isn’t.  I can’t see Dave Grohl doing a solo project as the lead singer?

I guess Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie are done?

And that’s all I need to say about this. Private matter, best to let them deal with it themselves.

 

Metallica will be touring aggressively behind their new album “Hardwired………………to self-destruct”

http://loudwire.com/robert-trujillo-metallica-touring-hard-support-new-album/   Radio interview inside the link.

LANGUAGE!  VIDEO OF METALLICA RECORDING THE SINGLE!

 

30 years ago Megadeth released “Peace Sells…..but Who’s Buying”

http://loudwire.com/megadeth-peace-sells-but-whos-buying-anniversary/

 

Alter Bridge will release a new song on Friday if you choose to preorder the album?

The new song is not yet available.

 

Now In Flames are releasing a proper video for this song on Friday.  Videos are great what is “Battles”?  If it’s an album with these two songs I think fans would prefer a preorder date or a release date?  These 2 songs do sound quite promising to me!
