OFFENSIVE MUSIC

Kim threw out her back yesterday? She took some Tylenol when she came home yesterday. She’s home today since she can’t really move. She’s in bed at the moment.

Yes, I grabbed the new “Lamb of God” album last night to listen to while going to sleep. I fell asleep too fast only heard half of the album. I’ll let you know that the firs 5 songs are REALLY good for fans of “As the Palaces Burn”, “Ashes of the Wake”, & “Sacrament”, as for the rest of the album I’ll tell you more next week.

The music I listen to can be very offensive to others, & I get that. That’s why I don’t force my music to be played here on the stereo when Kim is home unless it’s something we both like or if it’s “….my birthday…..”

Rap music is my Kryptonite If it’s not “Beastie Boys” I’m out! Yes I like Bicardi rum!

For me most country music & rap music aren’t for me, slightly offensive. I don’t go to football games for the music. I say just play country music & 75% of the crowd will love it. Yes, more country music, I can tolerate it, it won’t make my ears bleed……………..much.

I forgot, I fell on Thursday doing my yoga. Not the first time & likely not the last.

Can we talk about wussy baseball players for a second? Good, thank you! There was a day game in Oakland yesterday. Blue Jays SS (Short Stop) had a ball thrown from the outfield. It bounced twice. Once on the ground, & once on the base runners back into Jose Reyes’ teeth, he left the game. Why?How many times have I blocked a ground ball with my chest, have a ball hit my head while at bat with a batting helmet on, etc. Just suck it up & maybe EARN the multi million dollar pay check to play a game? I’ve taken a baseball to the mouth before, no blood, stay in the game. I’ve left a game twice with an injury. Stretched tendons in my knee after colliding with a 1B player, & running flat out into foul ground to catch a pop up then two steps later running into a chain link fence, bending the top about a foot while getting a bruise, winded, & possibly some cracked ribs? If you’re being paid millions of dollars to play a game, suck it up & get on the playing surface Especially baseball, a baseball won’t hurt you unless you let it! Play the ball, don’t let the ball play you. I’m pretty sure one of my coaches said that.

I guess his “free world” doesn’t allow him to grow any of his food? I’m pro GMO, I’m cool if you aren’t ONLY IF you grow you grow your fruit & vegetables in your garden, if not, you do a scientific study & prove that 60% are wrong.

Watch the results from the audience after the debate , 32% pro, 30% against & 38% undecided before the debate, between scientists. After the debate 60% pro, 31% against, 9% undecided. I don’t vote, so I can’t complain, until you’re growing your food in your garden the way you want, what gives you the right to complain? It’s hard to argue with 1000s of scientific studies that result in favour of using GMOs. I guess the scientists keep getting it wrong?

I’M A ROYAL TREAT TO HAVE AS A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER

Yes, pun intended. I’m a DQ royal treat as a friend or family member!

I called Kim at work yesterday since I made my lunch of cheese, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, & hot sauce in a wrap. I told her we were almost out of grated cheese, then we chatted about other stuff. I called her back immediately to remind her that the phone call was “All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken. All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken, etc.” I’m a delight to live with! See Rachel Gianoli you’re not the only one when we get paired up for Crokinole. Rachel’s “All about dat post, ’bout dat post, no 20. etc.”

OK Apple, iTunes that’s enough! I wanted something done my way, so I did it. All of our iTunes files are perfect on our 2 computers, my iPod, Kim’s iPhone, & iPad. The problem is now Apple’s or iTunes problem. I bought the recently released “Silverball” album by Barenaked Ladies on iTunes, it works fine on every device but our TV/home stereo. Our TV doesn’t even recognize that we own it? I go into Barenaked Ladies & I see 9 or 10 albums in alphabetical order, at the end I see “Rock Spectacle” then “Stunt”? “Silverball” should be in between those albums. SURPRISE! It’s not there! I pre-ordered “Highly Suspect’s” debut album & got 5 songs with my pre-order. 3/5 songs I received are grayed out on the TV. I can get 2 of them to work on our TV. Are those the only songs that will work on our TV when the album is released on Friday? All of this ballyhoo started with the launch of Apple Music Radio on Tuesday, June 30th which I hear is also not so great. There is no way I’ll pay $9.99/month for a crappy radio station subscription. We have a hot deal for Serious XM at the moment for under $10/month we get it. When that sale is done, so is our subscription to Serious XM. I’ve done all I can on my end, now Apple has the ball in their court.

Why is everything a competition now? 10 best Pearl Jam songs. I can’t even pick my top 4 ALBUMS, forget 1 best song?

^^You’re welcome!!! That just happened & now it’s stuck in your head!

There are way to many sub genres for metal music. Power, speed, thrash, black, death, nu, etc. For me I hate putting sub genres labels on music. There’s good or bad music. Metal, Rock, Country, Rap, R & B, & Pop. It’s either good or bad to each individual & will differ to each person. Example “Slayer” I need & have one album. After 90% of that album has played, for me personally it get’s old & repetitive. I have what is likely their most successful album “Reign in Blood” not “Raining Men”.

Queens of the Stone Age albums ranked worst to first. I’d have to agree with the worst choice. Their favourite I would have to make my 2nd favourite my favourite would be “…like Clockwork” Dave Grohl played drums in the studio on both of those albums.

http://diffuser.fm/worst-to-first-every-queens-of-the-stone-age-album-ranked/

I love this album! Elton John played on it as well! Very slow melodic piano only songs to this song (about as heavy as they get on this album).

There is currently no way I can get on the bandwagon for “Gorillaz”

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/07/gorillaz-to-record-new-album-in-september-for-planned-2016-release/

If a fan is acting like a moron & ruining the concert for others and security isn’t taking care of the problem, I think if whoever is onstage sees the fan doing it, has every right to kick them out.

http://loudwire.com/glenn-danzig-headlock/

Why is Myles Kennedy or Alter Bridge not a household name. Myles has an incredible voice! You don’t need to like him but you should at least know who he is.

Backing vocals on this tune below….

His former band that opened for The Watchmen & headliner Big Wreck back in the day, ’99 or 2000?

Alter Bridge’s first single off of their 1st of 4 albums. Song was all over the radio in Regina radio in 2004.

In his free time, when he’s not singing for Slash or Alter Bridge, he’s been working on a solo album the last 4 years! Alter Bridge’s 1st single off of their 4th album. Myles is currently on tour with Slash.

I’m not a fan of “3 Doors Down”, but this is right on point. Treat other concertgoers with respect. I broke my nose at a festival in ’99 in a mosh pit. My nose was pouring blood. Everybody immediately cleared a path for me to security at the front of the stage/guard rail where I was told where the First Aid tent was. I was missing part of Big Wreck’s set! That’s proper concert etiquette. LANGUAGE BELOW!!!!

OK, Jack White stated late last year that he “can’t afford to tour”, 50 Cent filled for bankruptcy on Monday, yet nobody has changed a thing……WHY? Jack White sold the most vinyl albums in North America last year out of 8 million sold in total! I don’t know the price of a vinyl album? I think I’ve bought one in my 35+ years. I blame digital music at a low if not free price. I love the idea of iTunes. I was sitting on my butt in front of the computer last night, & I thought “Hey, I should check out this album on iTunes”. I did, I liked it & bought it after a preview. Within 3 minutes I thought of an album previewed it & bought it for $6.99. Didn’t leave the house to go to a store & buy it over the course of 45 minutes. My only problem with digital music is, where does the money go?

Remember the ’80s & ’90s? Why did those groups rise to fame & live in mansions while today’s artists are just getting by & don’t get to have that type of lifestyle? I want to own the music I listen to & I do own it through iTunes. There needs to be a change in the dispersal of the money. Apple could survive on $0.50/download, artists management/label could survive on $1.00/download & the artist could get $0-$9/ per album download or $0-$1.00 per song download. But then people would have to pay for music “OH, SNAP!! I CANT AFFORD THAT!”! Really I bought CDs for the average price of $25.00 per CD. Roughly 600 of them. Paying for a product won’t kill you, you just may have to slow done on your music purchases?

I took a TON of stuff for granted, walking, living in a first world country, having clean water & food at my disposal. Most of us never think about those things, me included. It’s just a case of “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” I’m not complaining, I’m alive, I live with my best friend and a cute dog, I have 4 walls around me & clean water. As long as I have those essentials, I can’t complain!

ITUNES & STRESS

It’s not totally fixed, but we are closer than we were. At this point I think I should be receiving a paycheck in the mail courtesy of Apple. There has been quite a few households deleting iTunes Match. Meanwhile I’ve finished deleting & adding files that Apple screwed up with the launch of their new streaming service, Apple Music, on June 30th? They pretty much gave Match/iTunes users the middle finger, dropped the mic, & walked away.

Funny, Steve Jobs dies at a young age unfortunately, & Apple makes mistake after mistake, making users of their products angrier & angrier? I’m not angry, I’m confused. I have enough time on my hands to run in circles & see if things will work on try 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 or 50?

I’ve been a little stressed out lately. The iTunes problem is constantly on my mind, which of course some would call it a minor issue which is fine it’s a big deal for me.

The thing that worries me the most is Brewster. He turned 9 (human years) on January 31st. He’s whining, growling, panting, trying to hide, & sulking around here with his tail down. It’s as if he got 40 years older over night late last week? Kim took him to the vet yesterday. He’s back on anxiety pills & has been calm today. He always done those thing around kids & babies, when we have more than 2 people over or if there is a thunder storm. Now he’s like that all of the time, unless Kim is home. His pills must be doing the trick, he’s asleep in his dog bed.
