Friday, we went to see the movie “Sausage Party” it was good, I enjoyed it. The first R rated CGI/cartoon movie made. I liked it but I don’t need to see it again, once is enough for me. NOT FOR KIDS, LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, watched the Blue Jays win, 4-2, in the afternoon on TV at home. Watched the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders lose……………………again 19-10. I can’t have any fluid since the washrooms are nowhere close to us, the sun is beating down on us the entire time, Kim pays close to $700 a year so I can be there to watch them lose. Since winning the Championship in 2013 the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have a win-loss record of 14W-29L. It’s a bit financially straining on us now, a $300 increase for next year in the new stadium I think will be a one year thing hopefully in a handicap seat. 12 stairs up & 12 stairs down is not easy for me. Dad & I get there an hour before the game to watch the warm up & not slow down others as they get to the stadium, & we wait about 30 minutes after the game so we don’t slow anyone down on the way out.

Today it’s laundry, groceries & Blue Jay baseball is done for the weekend. The Blue Jays scored 9 runs in a win today, the Riders scored 10 points in a loss yesterday.

Kevin Smith & his 17 year old daughter, Harley Quinn, loved “Suicide Squad”. I love Kevin Smith movies so from him & the fact he’s comic fan who named his daughter after a Batman villain. I’ll Just purchase the blu-ray! I’d show you the video of his review but it’s not appropriate unless you’re a fan of his. Apparently there will be a follow up, stand alone, Harley Quinn movie.

Alice Cooper’s take on everything in one article!

Alex Rodriguez’ last day, Friday, as an MLB player! Article regarding him. He used steroids, got caught, used them again, lied, got caught & continued to lie about it. His statistics would easily put him in the Hall of Fame, but he cheated & will likely never be on the ballot. I think Ty Cobb is in it, but he was accused of murder. They need to reevaluate who’s in there? I have no sympathy for athletes that cheat! He’s currently, has been for quite some time now, the most hated player in the game! Once he got to NY, he’s been known to keep a distance from teammates. On Thursday all of a sudden he has had nothing but praise from teammates & other players?

Clear as mud? I will forever speak of him as A-Roid not A-Rod!

The Agonist shared it……

In Flames shared it, & I can’t wait for this DVD & CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Facebook is getting very slow for pop culture news, that I’m interested in sharing with you & for myself at the moment. Share some news for me please?

Yes, my muscles have been a bit sore over the weekend, I did reach my numbers in 3 exercises today! Tomorrow, I’ll do some of the 4th exercise & see how it feels?

I don’t put anything on the account, it’s a “free” preview for what I’ll purchase on iTunes. If you want to use it like I do, 2 computers are vital. One computer here has Apple Music & the other has iTunes. When we signed up for Apple Music it doubled all of the iTunes files. Once we separated the 2 accounts it was fine. So, I use it, but I don’t use it for “free” music. It, more like satellite radio but cheaper & WAY better! Apple won’t take the iTunes purchase files, I hope? If we stop paying the subscription for Apple Music, it’s all gone.

I don’t know if I’ve shared this on here yet? If I have, sorry? Feel free to skip past this if you like.

Movie ratings on iTunes are absolutely ridiculous to me, as are most ratings or reviews. I’ve rented and purchased 2 separate movies on iTunes. Both movies were given -22% & -27% reviews & I liked them both. Batman vs. Superman -27% & The Boss -22%. I busted a gut watching The Boss which we rented. I bought Batman vs. Superman & have watched the Ultimate Edition at least 5 times at home & once in the theater.

Batman vs. Superman will have quite few spinoffs that have been confirmed by trailers at comicon. I’m extremely anxious for them. I’ve heard some bad things about “Suicide Squad” though. I will champion Batman vs. Superman as 1 of my favourite comic book movies! But that’s me, not anyone else. I’ve heard rumour Ben Affleck will appear as Batman for 5 or 6 movies? Just a rumour though? Here are the upcoming spinoffs.

You’re gonna have DC vs. Marvel eventually & I’m in for both franchises!

I got 87% see what you can get! Name that band on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine!

I still wonder “How many of his hits occurred while on performance enhancing drugs?” He lied, got caught for a 2nd time, was suspended for a year, & continued to lie throughout his suspension. A-RoId will not be anywhere close to the Hall of Fame despite his impressive numbers!

“I’M FREE, FREE BALLIN’”

5:45am to early. Those memory pills are so fantastic I forgot to take my pills last night! I don’t like having to take certain medication at certain times. It’s free health care in Canada so I don’t need to worry. Every time I see my doctor he says “….we’ll start weening you off of this….”. I like that, but I know the pill I take for heart burn/acid reflux I’ll be on it for the rest of my life.

We were watching American Idol last night for me the show is like a bad car crash. I don’t like it but I can’t look away. They just eliminated the first person of the top 12. I’ve picked my top 4 already. Two of them might make it to the top 2. I don’t know if Canadians can vote for American Idol or not. I wouldn’t anyway, it’s a popularity contest. The cutest guy on the show with a decent voice will win. Because mostly young teenage girls watch the show & vote for their teen idol, the guy that will be on the cover of every teenage girl magazine or website. Don’t get me wrong they’ve got a lot of talent on the show & it will be difficult to pick the winner. When the winner is chosen it will be a teen heart throb that can sing country music. That’s the huge music market at the moment. I could be totally wrong, but I don’t think my top four could go all the way? Would I vote if I could? Probably not. In the end young teenage girls will likely choose the winner by “tweeting” which I don’t do. Most people have an email or cell phone, but not everyone is on twitter, facebook, linked in, instagram, etc. I’m not about to join a specific social media site so I can vote for a subjective competition.

I’ve got the “Paramore” albums (4) they’re great! Pop-punk sort of? Hard to describe.

This is the Radiohead stuff I love & the song “Street Spirit” isn’t as difficult to play/sing as it sounds!

Great song though from their 2nd album “The Bends”

Songs I like. I’m going to jump over a few that are on my iTunes but not on my iPod. I don’t delete stuff unless I find it absolutely terrible. “Chris Cornell” solo album (Soundgarden/Audioslave). I prefer his first of 2 solo albums. I don’t think this is even in the same ball park as Soundgarden.

Here’s one from his 2nd solo album

I agree, sort of. Judas Priest have likely made their millions of dollars, they shouldn’t NEED the money their being a bit greedy. All of that being said, they’re working musicians, that’s their job. Musicians shouldn’t work for free. Unless you buy the album at a concert, it’s free. CDs, iTunes, Streaming, these are all free if the artists are signed to a label. If they aren’t they make roughly $0.70 a song per download or CD sale. So big name acts that have been around for years make less than a dollar on anything unless the album is bought at the show & most of them probably don’t need the cash. Maybe I’m wrong spending $13-$15 on an album from iTunes? I want to OWN my music & be assured it’s there all day everyday. I have never even thought about looking at a streaming site I don’t know if you pay $10 or something for music for a lifetime? If you do and you want truly FREE music you should maybe just have streamed http://www.youtube.com on your phone, the 50 song mixes on youtube.

Drummer dies at the age of 42. That’s WAY to young, like the guy in Calgary while I was in some hospital. He had the same type of cancer as I had. He had 2 kids & died at the age of 27. Kim found it online & told me. Far too young.
