I fell asleep to “Zac Brown Band” the album “Jekyll + Hyde” after listening to “The Tea Party” the album “Edges of Twilight”

I exercised to “Led Zeppelin” all of the studio albums & my 3 disc box set on shuffle, didn’t hear my favourite songs though. I did hear their biggest hit though “Stairway to Heaven”, good song I just find it overrated, I still like it though.

Here’s “Stairway to Heaven” for those who don’t know it?

Yes I like pop, rap, hip hop, jazz, some country, but mostly rock & metal. I only know of one person in my life that listens to metal & nothing else. I can’t do that, after a while it’s like “OK, stop screaming at me!” Variety is the spice of life? Take almost everything in small doses? That’s how I take my music. I don’t purchase rap or country music since I know it would be a waste of money since I’d rarely listen to it. Just not my go to music. As long as the individuals enjoy what they’re doing, that’s good enough for me! I don’t have to like it or buy it!

Look at that! The Toronto Blue Jays’ bats sort of woke up last night. It’s like they rolled over & said “5 more minutes mom” as they won 7-2 against the NY Yankees. I think that’s the first time they’ve scored more than 3 runs in a game? They’re only 9 games into the season though 151 games to go!

MY BEARD 2009-2016 R. I. P.

I fell asleep to “The Tragically Hip” the album “Fully Completely” Canada’s golden boys to many. I like them. The rest of Canada for the most part loves them. I’ve got 4 of their 12 studio albums. No Greatest Hits or live albums.

I exercised to “Sevendust” the most recent album “Kill the Flaw” heard the entire album & put on “Big Wreck” their 2nd album “The Pleasure & The Greed

Thank you MLB umpires! You’ve now changed far too many rules. So many that you can now dictate the outcome of a game. Meaningful games in September? They’re only meaningful if you win the games prior to September. That means every game is meaningful. To watch a nail biter of a game with a young 97MPH fastball pitcher allows 1 run & comes away with nothing & then have any team lose on a tremendously moronic call makes a mockery of the game! Again umpires, you can only go up from here………………..unless you’ve changed more rules? No, I’m not being biased. If that determined the outcome of any game, it would’ve been just wrong still! Rule books aren’t allowed on the field? They should be! Every umpire & field manager should have one…………….what with the constant changing of the rules to protect the games stars. It’s a sport, if they’re doing these changes in MLB, lets abolish fighting from the NHL………………you know…………….to protect the stars?

Rant over. That was Tuesday evening. It’s a new world now, you can’t change the past, & they had to lose at some point. No team has gone 162W-0L?!

Now after watching today’s game the Blue Jays are 2W-2L off day tomorrow, then 3 games in Toronto against the visiting Boston Red Sox. No weird/wonky calls today. After hearing what players from both teams said, for them the rule looks as clear as mud. Even the Tampa Bay defender said”I didn’t even feel his hand on my foot”. Today, no non-sense or ballyhoo.

And this is how Tuesday evening’s game ended…..

Broken bones will heal. Words can hurt, especially if the victim has a good memory & tends to dwell on such things. Swearing is just words, I don’t mind them, they’re words with no meaning for me. I’m not going to use them since the entire world has labeled them as bad. If you’re offended by profanity, that’s fine…………..I get it. You’re the one who has defined it as a bad word, not me. This may seem odd to many but if you want to hurt ME in particular, swearing has little to no effect on me.

I Mother Earth is marking this year as the 20th anniversary of “Scenery + Fish” playing the entire album front to back & some other stuff!!!!! “Scenery + Fish” was their break through album, their 2nd of 4 albums released when I was 16 years old. It went triple platinum in Canada! This also marks 20 years since they played in Saskatchewan. I saw them at the age of 16 in Saskatoon on the tour for this album!

Hi everyone…yes been a bit quiet around here lately. That is about to change. 2016 is shaping up to be a pretty cool year for us and we just wanted to tell you a bit of what’s going on. This year is actually the 20th anniversary of our 2nd album, Scenery & Fish. That album did some pretty damn good things for us and took us around the world. It went triple platinum here in Canada, with four singles released from it. That shit just doesn’t happen anymore. So… we thought we’d celebrate a little. We’re hitting the road with S+F 20 Celebrating 20 years of Scenery & Fish. We’re going to play the whole album front to back as well as a bunch of other stuff to round the night out. A nice long evening with your pals, The Mothers. We have other announcements to come that fall under the S & F umbrella so please stay tuned…We’ve been busy. Anywhoo, here are the first couple of shows announced, more to come. Yell if you want us. Friday April 22, O’Brian’s Event Centre, Saskatoon. Saturday April 23, Casino Regina, Regina”

Nickelback” start work on new album.


Yes, I know it’s the “in” thing to hate “Nickelback”, what’s the point though? How about just don’t listen to them. I’m not a fan either. I like “Foo Fighters”, “Big Wreck”, “Alter Bridge”, “Tool”, etc. There’s likely at least 5 haters for every fan of these bands.

I always get these 2 songs messed up. Just because they both have “rain” in the title. No Slayer’s not one of them.

Anthrax” talk about touring with “Motorhead”


I’m gonna say it right now. Kim & I just rented “Straight Outta Compton”. The only movie I’ve heard about, which is (I think) nominated for an Oscar is “The Martian”. Did you see “Armageddon”? Did you see “Gravity”? Both seemed VERY similar to me, the story line at least. Somebody is left alone in space. I like Sandra Bullock & Matt Damon, “Good Will Hunting” instantly became one of my favourite movies. I don’t really need/want to see “The Martian”, it sounds like the same story line again. Somebody’s left alone in space. I’ve heard about “The Revenant” too, I think it was released too late for the Oscars? Why was “Straight Outta Compton” left out? Because it’s subjective & the Academy are the only people that get to vote. I’m with the guy on “Weekend Update” on SNL, choose movies that people have heard of, & have scene. I don’t need to hear about the artsy fartsy stuff nobody’s heard of!

“We have been busy! Wonder What’s Next?”

Quiet weekend here. Movies, ordered Chinese food (I think it’s the first time ever that Kim has ordered it? It only happens when my parents are around. She hates it), laundry, cleaning. I just got up & went straight to dishwasher emptied & made a fruit/vegetable smoothie, takes a while to wash & cut everything. But, no waste like when you’re actually using a juicer!

It has come to my attention that you can only read tiny bits from the beginning of the blog on your Cell Phone until you hit a youtube link. Not sure about tablets or iPads though?

American Idol. I always say I wont watch it then, Kim watches it & ropes me in. All of that being said I’m done, haven’t watched it the last few weeks. I love the addition of Harry Connick Jr. constructive criticism & I always tend to agree with him. The entire idea of “reality contest shows” is just losing me. I don’t understand why so many things are now a “competition”. Example : I was rooting for Qaasim & Quentin, they’re both gone I hear. It’s a subjective show to begin with. You get to pick out of the top 10 or however many the judges say are good enough. Great, but I wanted singer number 40 or the kid down the street who is too young or old to meet the age bracket? Even “The Voice” is getting stale for me. I think I’m just done with “reality” TV in general.

Quentin’s right & so is Harry. It’s whack & it is a competition, a popularity contest. The best singer is very subjective. Quentin shouldn’t have said that to the judges, but I’m glad he said it publically. Remember Caleb from last year? American Idol finished in late May I think & immediately after Caleb was declared the winner they announced his album would be released in August of that year! That’s pretty fast! It was written by I don’t know who & watered down for mass appeal. One song from his album then during the money making show.

………….and a spot on cover of Aerosmith on his album. He also sang this on the show.

Songs I like. “Dream Theater” I have 14 of their albums on iTunes but I’m stuck on “Systematic Chaos”. I haven’t listened to all 14 albums yet just 3 of them including “Systematic Chaos”, “Self Titled”, & “Images & Words”. These guys graduated the Berkley School of Music. Same school the original members of “Big Wreck” dropped out of to form Big Wreck. Yes, these are loooooong songs. Wait until I hit “Opeth”!

I got the Halestorm album last night after watching a disappointing Blue Jays game

Halestorm album review! I was tired & only heard roughly 5 or 6 songs last night when I got it. For now I can tell you it’s a VERY diverse album. I think I fell asleep to a ballad played on piano?

“Guitar Hero” is coming back with it’s first video game in 5 years. That game was my only reason for buying a PS2. I had the first 3 guitar hero games, a baseball game & God of War. Maybe a few others? That’s also the game that got me into ‘Lamb of God’. It also had an ‘In Flames’, ‘The Allman Brothers’, & “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Great way to learn bad habits on a real guitar.

3 part interview/article with a member of ‘The Agonist’

Genesis reunion from 1982 with Peter Gabriel.

This song that’s probably been covered by a few more bands

Jack White will perform spontaneously in five states with tickets going for $3.00

‘Celebrity Death Match’ is coming back to MTV2. I think they made a video game for X-Box with the claymation figures.

Hard rock bands that will change the game in 2015. I highly doubt there will be a change.

‘Shinedown’ album near completion

‘Barenaked Ladies’ in the studio. Album release set as June 2nd.

This year as far as music for me is really looking good! But Gene Simmons says “Rock is Dead” & he’s God of everything, so I hear?

I agree, get rid of the gimmick make up ‘KISS’! If people like your music they will go to a KISS concert make up or no make up!

Celebrating ‘The Who’ concert announced. Thank you CSI!

16 years ago “Burn the Priest” now known as ‘Lamb of God’ released their first self titled album ‘Burn the Priest’. I’m not a fan of that album in the least. They got better with each release after that up to the album “Sacrament”

“I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, like….” this album

Aerosmith announce tour

Foo Fighters want to get weird. Live show of the B-Sides recorded? Wait until it’s released then tour for that album? I think that’s different, as long as they don’t “doctor” the live album like “KISS” did?

Rex Brown, former Pantera bassist, is auctioning Pantera items he gathered during his time in Pantera.

Finger Eleven tour kick off. I think fans would at the very least would like a GOOD album. The last one was a tiny step up and the one before it I will never consider it as a F11 album.

35 years ago ‘Judas Priest’ released “British Steel”

My status update I did my work out at 11:00am 300 crunches, much better yoga, 20 push ups & some planking. Oh, & a “wrestle” with Brewster, my right arm against his entire body. I get him on his back & scratch his belly and I swear he looks like he’s having “….the happiest seizure of his life…” Sorry couldn’t find the one at the end of the movie?

Songs I like. “Dishwalla” I only own 2 of their CDs & that’s all. I’m pretty sure I got these on an 11 CDs for $0.01 from Columbia House or BMG? In the ’90s.
