“THE GOOD OLE’ HOCKEY GAME”

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing” a 34 song album?

I exercised to “The 1975” the album “The 1975” a 39 song album?

The NHL has become a terrible mess, & it just keeps going downhill. It’s very apparent to me that the commissioner has lost total control of the league. Does anyone know of fans in Tampa Bay, Phoenix, Nashville, Dallas, or even L.A.? He’s not responsible for all of these cities having teams. I have a hard time believing they can attract enough fans to a single game to merit the fact they generate enough money for the league. Now there’s whispers of a team in Las Vegas? Yeah, that worked out fantastic with there being a CFL team down there in the ’90s. I think most Canadians could do with fewer teams & some rule changes to boost offense, & less fighting. I personally would like to see NHL hockey pre New Jersey Devils’ neutral zone trap defense. NHL from the ’80s & very early ’90s.

I watch “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” everyday. He said that someone he knew offered box seats to numerous clients. Your own food, drinks, & washroom for FREE! The guy couldn’t give away free tickets to a Toronto Maple Leafs game & Toronto is where the hockey die hard fans live! That’s how bad it is in Toronto. I’ve never been to a regular season hockey game & right now that’s fine. Since the strike/lock out I’ve probably watched less than a full hockey game on TV. I’ve seen portions of probably 6 games since 2014? I miss NHL hockey from way back when, & nobody will come remotely close to Wayne Gretzky’s records for quite a while. Ah, when hockey was good!

Only a 20 game suspension for this?????? If I were dishing out the punishment it would be a lifetime ban from the NHL!!!! This is why I don’t watch hockey. Coach, maybe control your players?

I keep thinking I should get this album, I’m just not sure I’d listen to it much?

“Walk off the Earth” shared it. Other than my dad I don’t know of any other fans of their’s. I think just my dad & I are alone in this?

You said “Five Finger Death Punch” & “Disturbed”. I wasn’t planning on going anyways. I’m not into those bands. I liked “Disturbed” first two albums at the time in my early to mid 20s. Couldn’t really get into “Five Finger Death Punch”

POINTS FOR PRETTY?

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the new album “Dystopia”

I woke up, layed in bed for longer than I’d like & listened to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

I worked out to “A Perfect Circle” the album “Mer de Noms”

When I was younger I watched figure skating. Mens figure skating, almost always Kurt Browning & Elvis Stojko. At the end of their routine they’re judged by 5 or 6 judges for the technical aspect & then the artistic aspect. Technical aspect sure, did they do the right things at the right time, was each jump accurate, did they fall, etc.? That’s fine, maybe stop at that point. Nope??!! Artistic judgment? Here’s the points for pretty part. Were the costumes good, did the skating have a nice flo to it, etc. Right there 6 people are judging them based on personal perspective………WHY? I’m not a fan of rap or country music……..WHY? Personal perspective, a subjective matter. There’s even metal groups I wont touch because it’s just not what I want to hear. Even when I put my iPod on at night I’ll go through 3 or 4 artists/albums to find what I want to hear at the moment, it’s not “Slayer” or “Lamb of God” 24 hours a day? Maybe it’s “Jack Johnson”, “Ben Harper”, “Harry Connick jr.”, “Nat King Cole, “Elvis Costello”, etc. So why is main stream music shoved down everyone’s throat? It’s not, maybe you’re looking in the wrong place? A TON of the music I like isn’t mainstream & likely won’t get any airtime on AM or FM radio. I look elsewhere!

Since I got this from the “Trivium” facebook page, my preferred “Trivium” song is below.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/ug_news/top_21_most_epic_metal_songs_of_all_time.html?no_takeover

Off of their 2nd album the first album James & I had heard about them released in 2006. Same year the album “10,000 Days” by Tool was released. Since then “Trivium” have released 5 albums. After a decade, “Tool” can’t release anything but a FANTASTIC/AMAZING album. Which isn’t really difficult for them according to their loyal fan base.

Rick Mercer Report rant

I watch the news on occasion. When I do I learn that 8 people died & reporters are usually reporting that someone is angry at so & so for doing or not doing this? I don’t want to hear it. Did you vote for whoever you’re complaining about? If you did it’s partially your fault. You don’t like it, you do it! For that reason I don’t pay much attention to the news or vote.

MONDAY < FRIDAY

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “F”, as in Foo Fighters’ B-Sides. I’ve got about 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides, most of them (45?) are purchased the rest I got from a guy, who knows a guy, who has a brother that knows a guy who knows a guy………………………..

Kim wake’s me up this morning before she leaves for work & tells me to have a good day. I reply with something to the tune of “I will, at least it’s Tuesday”. She replies “No, it’s Monday sweetie” & right there she crushes my dreams.

Didn’t know & just don’t care that Miley Cyrus had a wardrobe malfunction at the MTV VMAs. Wardrobe malfunctions aren’t a rare/offensive occurrence now. I pretty sure most of the people watching whatever are immune to it now. “Yep, she showed a boob, what else is on?”

I was not a fan of ‘Green Day’s’ “American Idiot” in the least. It became a Broadway Musical & now a documentary about the making of the album? I like Green Day, but I thought out of the 5 other albums I have, this would be considered one of if not the worst album in their catalogue.

Paramore shared Top 10 best pop-punk songs of all time.

http://www.laweekly.com/music/10-best-pop-punk-songs-of-all-time-6031317

These are on the list & I like them. Everyone will have a different opinion though. I get a bit worried when I see these types of lists. It’s usually 1-3 people that are telling you what they think. One of the reasons I don’t do reviews, it’s just what I think of the song/album. All I know is, if I like it.

All the power to her, country is the “in” thing at the moment. It’s the thing most people want to hear.

Ryan Adams reveals his cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’

October is shaping up to be my month for releases! Trivium & Clutch on the 2nd, Pentatonix & maybe I’ll get the Coheed & Cambria album on the 16th, Ed Sheeran on the 9th, & Ian Fletcher Thornley (of Big Wreck & Thornley) on the 30th.

LANGUAGE!!!!

No new Ed Sheeran tune?

No new tune from Ian Fletcher Thornley? The snippet I heard from his solo album is more acoustic with some banjo thrown in.

If you’re getting this through Facebook, feel invited to like & share this! Facebook or the actual website give this a second to load all of the links. Some days youtube.com is a little wonky?
