DISCLAIMER!!  I’M NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE CONSERNING POLITICS!!!!!  I’M THE LAST PERSON YOU WANT TO TALK TO REGARDING POLITICS.

 

To say I’m disappointed with the outcome of the election is not even close to how I feel.  I can’t change it or fix it.  This was a slam dunk for Hillary.  WWIII, it’s coming.  I’m more scared now than I’ve ever been.  Trump has been accused of sexual assault.  So has Bill Cosby.  I’d take Bill Cosby over Trump.  At least Bill Cosby gave us something, stand-up comedy, The Cosby Show, Kids say the Darndessed Things, &, Jell-O Pudding commercials.  What has Trump given you?  The Apprentice & a book.  I was nervous before, & now I’m terrified!  America just elected a terrorist as President.  Enjoy your 4 years of a worse George Bush Jr.!  I’ll be in my bomb shelter, see you in 4 years!  Even Stephen Colbert is close being speechless.

 

“I can’t believe the news today….”

I went out last night for a beer tasting.  I come home, try to relax, turn on the TV to see what I’d hoped to see, & drop my jaw that Trump is leading?  I changed the channel to see if anyone else is reporting the same stuff or if this was a mistake?  It wasn’t.  Watched some Netflix, Kim went to bed, I watched more election coverage, felt myself getting angry & went to bed.

 

I was watching TV after I posted my blog.  I was in the kitchen & heard an ad for “Tropical Orange Juice”.  I thought the ad was for “Trumpical Orange Juice” oh, did I have a good chuckle!  No wonder his complexion is orange!

 

Would you like the members of “In Flames” to hold your hand while listening to the new album on Friday?  Here’s a track by track guide.

I would like to be watching the first Toronto Blue Jays regular season game which the pregame starts at 1:00 pm. Baseball trumps most things on the weekends. Until our TV shows finish their season it’s Blue Jays in :30 which I don’t like but it’s better than nothing I guess? They lost their last 2 spring training games in Montreal against the Boston Red Sox. Doesn’t really matter since they didn’t play all of the regulars for long if at all.

We saw 10 Cloverfield Lane Saturday evening. Would have been a great movie if they could have written an ending. At least John Goodman was in it. I don’t see a reason for a sequel despite the lack of an ending.

Mark Tremonti interview on his upcoming release April 29th, the next Alter Bridge album currently being recorded at the moment, & his desire to collaborate with Metallica.

The Alter Bridge album “Fortress”, their 4th album, was the first album of theirs that I downloaded on iTunes, the previous 3 I bought on CD. My mother got me the 10 year anniversary box set so know I have all four CDs & all four on vinyl, plus DVDs of interviews. Each album seams to be better than the previous release (for me), I hope they continue that trend!

How many Axl Rose on stage blow ups will happen on this “reunion” tour? I’ll guess 2 or 3 as a minimum. For the record, I don’t like Guns n’ Roses. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” their debut album from 1987. I haven’t listened to it in at least 12 or 13 years, I bought since the rest of the world kept telling me it was so good, sorry, not for me. They have their place but for me, it’s buried in my closet, where it will stay.

http://loudwire.com/unforgettable-axl-rose-onstage-moments/?fb02

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point you’re probably asking yourself “Does this idiot even like music?”. I do, but it’s not Metallica, GNR, or the entire 1980s L.A. hair metal scene. 1990S “grunge” is more my thing, or modern metal. You probably have never heard of the metal I like unless you’re a fan of metal? The metal I like really isn’t hard to find. There are many other metal fans in Regina that know much more about metal than I do.

1 GNR concert down, 20 to go here’s some info from the first show.

http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-first-show-reunited-axl-rose-slash-duff-mckagan-videos-photos-setlist-more/

It’s much more difficult than I anticipated to keep my opinion to myself. Remember that you can always suggest a group to me & I’ll be more than willing to check it out. You don’t have to check out the stuff I like either if you don’t want to, it’s just a suggestion, sort of a “See if you like this?”

This was a topic on one of the far too many TV shows I watch. Is it morally wrong to watch “The Cosby Show” knowing that he allegedly did some terrible things? If so, is it just as wrong to listen to “Michael Jackson” despite what he was accused of doing? I watched “The Cosby Show” growing & it was good as a kid. I have no desire to watch it again, not for what he’s being accused of simply because I don’t need/want to see it again. My parents have a DVD of him doing his stand up comedy, is it wrong that I want to watch it? As for Michael Jackson, I don’t listen to him often, when I do I turn it up to 11! Is that wrong? “…..In a nutshell….” are the fallen entertainment legends labeled for the good things they’ve done or the bad things……………or both, is it OK to enjoy their entertainment while knowing what they’ve been accused of? Is it wrong that I listen to “Moxy Fruvous” still after what Jian Gomeshi has been accused of? O.J. Simpson? So many celebrities. I’m not a fan of NFL & never have been, I had no clue who O.J. was until his trial when I was a teenager in the ’90s. Please respond with your thoughts?

Even singer “Steven Page” of this group was sent to jail for cocaine possession & I still listen to the stuff he sang on. I really don’t know where I stand on the majority of these matters?

I wouldn’t apologize for this, I also wouldn’t use the language he used. It’s a live show. In my opinion, cell phones should not be allowed in any public gathering for a movie or show. Every concert, musical & live performance should at least have the cell phone disclaimer before the show like there is at every movie. You can purchase or rent the movie afterwards. The crappy video & crappy sound on your phone you may look at once & realize it’s terrible but you just paid $90 to see it live & you screwed it up. How about someone coming to your place of employment & video recording you? It will bother you, any co workers, & clients, who need to speak with you.

http://loudwire.com/disturbed-david-draiman-texting-fan-sorry/?fb003

If it comes to the point that I require a cell phone, I’ll use it like a home phone. If I’m out and you’re not there it would be for two reasons only, I didn’t invite you for some reason or you weren’t able to attended and I’m not the one who will give you the play by play. Also if you text me, I’ll call you………………consider yourself warned. I don’t like the idea of mobile devices in the least. You have one that’s fine with me. I don’t need or want one.

I’m not a fan of Gwen Stefani’s solo work but her stuff with “No Doubt” I do enjoy!

I know my brother saw them with “Paramore” as the opener. I think I was in the hospital & I hadn’t heard of “Paramore”? If I had, I would’ve tagged along.

Mark Tremonti on the progress from the studio recording the 5th Alter Bridge album.

“Guitars are coming along nicely!” I hope it’s released this year?!

Guns n’ Roses first show of the reunion tour in a small club. I wonder what other group performs at a small club before a huge tour after recording a new album?………………wait……………it’s “Foo Fighters” usually a secret show with a different name advertised.

http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-first-show-reunited-axl-rose-slash-duff-mckagan-videos-photos-setlist-more/

I’m ready to watch baseball and “I’ve got my short shorts on”

Here I come couch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First regular season game, then 161 more to go. I watch the majority of the 3 hour game almost everyday, if I can’t I guess I’ll record “Blue Jays in :30” & I usually feel lonely. I know of 2 friends that can watch a 3 hour baseball game. Last year they played 19 innings instead of the usual 9 innings, that’s just over 6 hours, I watched it all. No such thing as a tie game in baseball, they play until someone wins!

HOW EVER YOU’RE GETTING THIS, PLEASE PASS IT AROUND?

Back to our regular scheduled programming.

Apple/iTunes are just down right weird in a bad way. Apparently it is illegal to burn a CD, DVD, or a blu-ray for someone else because Apple sees where/what the users information is or what account it was purchased from. WHY? Now I cant burn a mix playlist for someone that is not added to my account? Keep going Apple, here’s some more rope. It was OK to make copies of purchased cassettes or CDs but “Oh, NO you can’t do that now!!!!” says big brother!? I also can’t just share my legally paid for albums purchased from iTunes backed up on my external hard drive & share my iTunes files with friends? Now we can’t share anything we purchase on iTunes? I paid for it, I own it, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Now that I can’t, do I go back to purchasing CDs and rip them to iTunes, lend it to my friends & then throw it out, making a larger carbon imprint on the environment? Apple, did you bring the circus to town too!? Or are you intentionally making a comedy of errors?

Kurt Cobain conspiracy movie “Soaked in Bleach” has a release date in the UK. I tried to find it on youtube but came up empty. I keep seeing an invite to a random youtube page that I’m a little leary about?

BASEBALL ALL-STAR GAME

Why does the All-Star game determine anything? The winner, American league or National league, gets home field advantage in the World Series in October? Why not have it be whichever of the 2 teams, in the World Series, with the better W-L record gets 4/7 games of the World Series in their ball park. Aren’t all-star games supposed to be fun, light hearted, & mostly for the fans? I didn’t watch the game or Monday’s home run derby. I love baseball, but I only follow the Blue Jays. I watch as many of the 162 games, they play each year, as possible. If I’m doing something else, I record Blue Jays in :30. Not as much fun for me as watching the entire game.

Lots of people find it boring which is fine, I get that. It’s as much if not more of a mental game. You have to be thinking of where you need to be for every scenario on every pitch. If you’re a player on the field not moving on every pitch you’re doing something wrong. My last 2 years of competitive baseball, I played 3rd base. As a fielder, my brain was working on “overdrive” for each pitch. I was thinking about what to do in the multiple situations that could occur if there was a ball in play & I was always on the front part of my feet slowly inching towards the ball. I couldn’t hit to save my life, fielding, for me, was much easier. I learned after a couple of years to attack the baseball in the field, it’s not going to hurt me.

I hope that whoever is watching Blue Jays Central, the pre-game show, is taking Gregg Zaun’s opinion with a grain of salt. I disagree with 80% of what he says, so make up your own mind. He’s a former catcher, when was the last time he played any position in a meaningful game other than catcher or hitter? Catching, hitting, & pitching are the few things I don’t know much about, that’s where I respect his criticism. He’s doing his job well though, I’m talking about him, but TV dives aren’t a real thing. Ever lost your balance while concentrating on a tiny ball as it comes closer to you? I’d dive or run into a fence to field a ball, & I wasn’t on TV? I guess I was playing the game wrong?

Radio interview with members of Finger Eleven. Album out Friday, July 31st. Two other songs released with an iTunes pre-order sound more like the older 3 albums & not the last 2 albums.

OK, question I saw on www.loudwire.com. Who is your preferred band to see live Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam? I’ve seen Pearl Jam twice & Foo Fighters 3 times. It’s a very tough decision for me. My first Pearl Jam show was in the summer of 2005 in Saskatoon, my first Foo Fighters show was at the Summersault festival in Saskatoon in the summer of 2000. I think I’d have to go with Foo Fighters since they just play for a minimum of 3 hours. I love both bands live or on a recording!

On Monday night’s Jimmy Fallon his musical act was “Echoesmith”. I misunderstood him, then he showed the cover of the vinyl album & repeated their. For 2-3 seconds I though “Cool, Aerosmith”! Nope totally different, but still really good!

I didn’t know they sang that song until just now.  I’m not a cool kid!

Looking at this list, I should have been at Comic-Con in San Diego, Third Ion should have been there too. When a band is influenced by video games, that would be THE place to be!

I fixed my iTunes on Sunday & ended up doing some tweaking, not twerking, to it on Monday, now all is well other than the recent release by Barenaked Ladies “Silverball”. It will play everywhere but on our TV? My computer & iPod, Kim’s computer, Phone, iPad & car radio. Just not our TV?

I read somewhere that sitting isn’t healthy for you. I’m in a wheelchair, I’m screwed. I should lay down more! Thank you!! I’ll be here all week! Enjoy the veal!

Yep, Foo Fighters played “Everlong” on Letterman last night, if you missed it here it is. I haven’t watched Letterman for well over a decade other than to see Foo Fighters on the show.

I’ve never heard a “Lamb of God” album that’s “schizophrenic”?

Some albums sound very similar throughout the album, that’s fine, I listen to that as well. If I were to make a chart it would do this..
I prefer diverse albums, those are what stick with me the most, like this stuff…

I think “Paramore” really likes this video. “This video has 36.000.000 views”! OK now it has 36.000.001 views.

I’m not a fan of KISS or Metallica but I think any band that has the longevity & the number of albums they do as well as a legacy should likely just tour on their big albums that helped get them to this point. KISS, Metallica, AC/DC, Rush, U2, etc.

Bill Cosby’s going down. I don’t want to believe it, but it’s true. I wish the women he assaulted had come out sooner to prevent this from happening to others. I also understand why they didn’t.

I don’t use marijuana, but I’m all for legalizing it. Anyone that wants to use it is & really isn’t affecting those who don’t want to use it. Seems like more of a waste of time for the police to me, I’m good either way. Kelly Clarkson spoke about it in this article, that’s what brought it on.

I would recommend checking this Zac Brown Band album out very little flat out any type of music. I can’t really compare any song on this album to a song on a different album?

Here’s a few clips I’ve found of him doing cover songs I wouldn’t see coming from him. Would you ever expect to hear Queen or Rage Against The Machine at a country music band concert. WARNING!!!

Starts out nice & simple then, not so much

This was always fun to play at 2:00am

As morbid as this is, it’s true. The only certainty in life is that it will end, so don’t waste your time worrying about your death or anyone else’. Enjoy the present. Don’t worry about the past, you can’t change it, & you don’t know what the future will bring. Just enjoy your time here in the moment. I was scared about my death long before I had cancer, I realize now that there are some things you can’t prevent, so why worry about the next second of your life?

Songs I like. “Great Big Sea” released in 1996 &1997 their first two CDs which I bought when they were released. I saw them live twice, once on each tour. I don’t think I’ve listened to them since I graduated in June of ’98
