ROUGH NIGHT, MORE SO FOR KIM/MORALITY ISSUE REGARDING OZZY

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…..”

From their first album released in 1997. This is a live version from Roy Thompson Hall w/ The Toronto Symphony Orchestra. This is also the song they were playing in 1999 when I broke my nose at a 1 day festival in Saskatoon called Edgefest. Still the only broken bone I’ve ever had.

Yes, we had a rough night, that’s why I don’t remember what I fell asleep to. I do remember listening to 1 of 4 or 5 entire albums “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

Kim was up & down from the bed last night. Brewster has terrible anxiety when just about anything out of the ordinary happens. Last night there was a storm. The first crack of thunder & Brewster starts freaking out. Up & down of the bed, which means Kim has to help him up onto the bed, he is small & can’t jump that high. He has anti-anxiety pills, valium, he doesn’t take them if he smells it inside of whatever bite of food we try to cover it in? I understand why he doesn’t like it, so does Kim. He trips & falls over when he gets a pill, & it’s not good for his liver.

By the time I fell asleep it had to have been after 1:00 am? Kim was up much longer cleaning up Brewster’s poop & pee while he wandered throughout the house, then I fell asleep after useless trying to calm him down. Kim figures she got 2 hours of sleep because he wouldn’t take his pill.

He’s 10 ½ years old now. You think he’d be over this but he’s not. Guess who’s sleeping in his bed on the floor beside me? We’re not supposed to coddle him when he’s panting & pacing around the house, so we don’t, but he still does it anyways.

The rest of this I wrote yesterday!

A SHORT RANT ABOUT NOTHING THAT BECAME A LONG RANT

I love watching the Toronto Blue Jays pregame, it’s good for a laugh! It’s fun watching the Blue Jay analyst, Gregg Zaun, get so bent out of shape because of new rules. He was a catcher in the major leagues for 15 years, I believe mainly a back up catcher, I could be wrong? His last game played was in 2010. He’s now a part of a ½ hour pregame show on every Blue Jay game. What I find amusing is that I hear him, almost daily, say “The game’s been played this way forever! Why change it now?”. Well, “….it’s called evolution baby….”

Now onto “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” who defends Blue Jay knuckle ball pitcher 42 year old R.A. Dickey. I only watch his first hour on Mondays & Fridays when he takes calls from anyone about any sport. The Blue Jays acquired Dickey in 2013. He won the Cy Young award in the National league in 2012 with the NY Mets. After his win Tuesday evening in Houston he is currently 8W-12L for the year. Pretty bad if you ask me. I, like many others including himself, have no clue how he’ll pitch on any given day? The knuckle ball is different than any other pitch & few people can throw it. It does not spin, without it spinning it floats, flutters, & dives where ever. You throw it towards the catcher & hope it hits the strike zone. Personally, too much of a risk for me.

I listen to Bob McCowen & he says “Wait until Dickey gets to the 2nd half of the season, he’s really good!” Great Bob, that makes me feel better……wait…………..a full season is 32 starts. So 16 of them I’m not supposed to worry about? The games in April count as much as the games in September I thought. So including Tuesday’s win he’s 1W-3L in his last four games & we’re in the 2nd half of the season? Great!…………………….I’m confused?

Starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez is 24 years old & on pace to have a Cy Young year. The Cy Young award is given to the 2 best pitchers during a season, 1 National league pitcher & 1 American league pitcher. This is Aaron Sanchez’s first full year as a starting pitcher. The Blue Jays brass has said he will be going to the bull pen, joining the relief pitchers. Why? They want to baby him so that his arm wont fall off, & save him for the potential playoffs. His arm is safer as a reliever? If his arm falls off who cares where he’s pitching? He’s young & already among the best pitchers in the game. What if he moves to the bullpen & the Jays don’t make the playoffs? Now who’s got mud on their face? What are you going to do with him next year?

Ha! I’m not the only one! Most Blue Jay fans will agree!

Muse starts off really good then goes on a slow decline after this first track.

Is it just me or does it seem as though musicians are pushing their albums out really fast? Last week she announced the new album & today there’s a single & an expected release date for the fall? That seems really quick to me. I would think someone would release a single, announce the release date for the album once it’s recorded? I don’t know how things like that work, but it seems as though many artists like to work “under pressure”.

Don’t know why? This has been stuck in my head lately? I must need an “Odds” fix. This album was released in ’93, I’ve listened to it around 4 times since 2008 & it still holds up for me.

I don’t want my music streaming. How about a subscription to iTunes? I can download for free while Apple pays the artists? We’ve always been able to purchase vinyl, cassettes, CDs or digital files & now you’re taking away the opportunity to own music? If you’re paying them a decent amount for a streaming/radio site, maybe take a look & do the same with iTunes so I can download it & own it instead of paying for renting music for the rest of my life? Look at what you made & what’s wrong with it then fix it? Don’t just build a better mouse trap, fix the old one? More reaction to this topic…

If I can’t OWN it legally, torrent files it is! Where you pay $0.00 for anything digital. You take my stuff away, I’ll take your’s away. I have nothing against others using a streaming service. For me it’s like renting an apartment, once you stop paying, you lose the apartment. If you’re paying your mortgage eventually you’ll own your living space. You’ll never own the apartment by paying rent.

Big Wreck live.

Personally, along with many other baseball fans this is not right. Pete Rose bet on his team to win one game he was managing not playing in & he bet on them to win. Suspension, fine I agree, lifetime ban from baseball not right. Baseball is currently looking around the corner of inducting steroid users into the ‘Hall of Fame’. If one steroid user get’s in, most of the fans will react in a negative fashion.

They lost me on their 4th album but I stuck with them. This will be their 6th studio album & the first album of their’s I’ll get on iTunes. Everything else I have bought on CD.
