I guess the victims didn’t have their guns with them to “protect” themselves? I guess it could be a terrorist attack? So they say on the news at this point? Not every American loves having a firearm with them & not every Muslim is an extremist/terrorist.


Doctors appointment this morning at the cancer clinic. All is well. Told me to take baby Aspirin & it might help to get rid of the minor side effects from the medications I’m on, maybe it’ll help with my dry mouth & I might not drink 2 liters of water a day. She also showed me my CT scan & explained it, all is well she said. There’s some water in my noggin but that’s OK. She also extended my time for the next appointment to June of 2017, instead of 1 appointment a year, it’s now every year & a half! Fewer needles being poked in me!


Today’s workout was brought to you by “The Beatles” all albums on shuffle.


Scott Weiland (former singer for Stone Temple Pilots & Velvet Revolver, was with Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts at the time he passed) Sad to see someone die but I don’t think his death was a shock? He had been dealing with drugs & alcohol for many years, constantly in & out of rehab. All of this was in the public eye. Velvet Revolver even made a music video involving his issues, while he was a member of the group.

Big Wreck shared this on facebook in remembrance of Scott Weiland.


It’ in 2017 but it’s a confirmed reunion.


His sister seems a wee bit off. Just a HUGE mistake, nobody should have to fo through whether they’re 12 or 82! Sorry, I had to make a reference point.


On Stone Temple Pilots’ facebook page

Dear Scott,

Let us start by saying thank you for sharing your life with us.

Together we crafted a legacy of music that has given so many people happiness and great memories.

The memories are many, and they run deep for us.

We know amidst the good and the bad you struggled, time and time again.

It’s what made you who you were.

You were gifted beyond words, Scott.

Part of that gift was part of your curse.

With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.

All of our love and respect.

We will miss you brother,

Robert, Eric, Dean”


Cool story for the holidays. My mother-in-law was likely crying through part of it.


EVERYTHING on facebook is about the passing of Scott Weiland. Stone Temple Pilots became famous as a grunge band I guess releasing the album “Core” in 1992, out of San Diego.

For me, that’s a really good debut album. They released 6 studio albums & a Greatest Hits album with Scott Weiland & a 5 song EP with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.

Chester is the singer, not the rapper.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be on a “Trivium” kick for a while with their new album leading the charge. The “Sevendust” albums seem to get better for me with each release. The “Clutch” album is really good too. I’d say my late night Thursday shopping on iTunes was nothing short of success!

I don’t think fans would care in this case or any case “Finger Eleven” were called “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” originally. They changed their name along with their drummer & sound. I don’t think a band could change their name without a change in their sound or a member change. Dave Grohl doesn’t like the name “Foo Fighters” but I don’t think a name change would matter?

Rock It Out Blog from Friday. “Kid A” was Radiohead’s 4th album & the reason I stopped being a Radiohead fan. “Pablo Honey”, “The Bends”, & “OK Computer” were the first 3 albums & they were each better, to me, with each release. “Kid A” was a very steep & uncontrolled downfall.

I would go so far a calling the 2nd & 3rd album easily among my favourite albums, not a group of amazing singles, but 2 entire albums front to back!

“Lamb of God” cover. After watching it, I still don’t know what a “hurdy gurdy” is? She plays it very well though! The name sounds like something “The Swedish Chef” from the Muppets would have in his kitchen?

Really they’re bickering over the name of a less famous Motley Crue?

“Cheer up boys! Your Makeup is Running”

I still miss Robin Williams Still my favourite movie along with “The Princess Bride”

Someone needs to say aka The President along with many other high level politicians in the USA, “OK, you can’t play nice! Hand over the guns & have a cookie or we’ll shoot you! We have guns too!” Maybe I’m just a stupid 35 year old white male in Canada but this is WAY MORE than enough!

OK, but there are more on the way & this is extremely one sided so what albums do you like?

15 years ago Saturday, Green Day released ‘Warning’

I’ll say it! Baseball players make WAY TOO MUCH MONEY!!!!!!! The Toronto Blue Jays have or had the 3rd highest payroll last year I believe at $128.000.000 That means $128 million isn’t enough money to pay for high quality players to even hope they have a chance at the playoffs?

At the moment, as the Blue Jays will start playoff baseball on Thursday, every fan is wondering if David Price will sign, likely, his last contract & finish his career as a Blue Jay. I’m not worried about that at all it’s a 50/50 chance & he’ll likely go to the highest bidder for somewhere around $30 million/year for 7 years. If he does sign with the Jays, what happens in the off season next year? Bautista & Encarnacion’s contracts are done? They’re both going to ask for more money? Who do you cut loose? Can you afford all of the players? I believe SS Tulowitzki & Catcher Russell Martin & maybe 3B Josh Donaldson are already signed for the next 4 or 5 years at $15-$25 million/year. If David Price signs with the Jays, I would think Edwin or José could end up on different team, unless the Blue Jays can just throw ridiculous amounts of money at the 2 of them?

I’ll make up some different type of pitch, play one year, win 10 games & retire with one year played for $5 million & laugh all the way to the bank!

I’ve never really understood Bill Murray’s humour

Gun control NEEDED!! Listen to his speech, see the graph/chart & learn something!

How are “Rage Against The Machine” still a band since they split in the early 2000s & have played one show in that time?

I don’t like getting caught up in politics or big issues. Do what you want, don’t hurt people physically , mentally, or emotionally. Unfortunately that’s not always the case. That is one of the reasons I don’t vote. Nothing will change over night, as much as people want it to.

Scott Stapp (Creed singer) discusses his bi-polar issues

Songs I like. “Sanctity” I didn’t go out looking for them, I just stumbled upon them before I had cancer? All I can see on iTunes is the album I own “Road To Bloodshed” released on April 7th 2007.

There is another “Sanctity” on iTunes, but I’m quite certain it’s not the same group. So don’t be misled!

I don’t do all of the workouts everyday. I pick 2 or 3 out & do them, 420 crunches, 20-30 minutes of yoga, 40 push ups, 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees or on my back, walking with my walker, up & down stairs, or the recumbent exercise bike.

“The Weeknd” & “Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats” were released, but only the first single from each album got me interested. I don’t buy just a song. Iron Maiden out on September 4th is what I’m waiting for.

Iron Maiden touring the globe in style for 2016. New album “Book of Souls” out September 4th

Dave Grohl chugs a beer onstage with a 50 year old fan on his 50th birthday. MINIMAL LANGUAGE AT THE END!!!!

I don’t smoke anything or use drugs in any way. Fighting against legalizing it is a waste of time & also not the popular choice for politicians. Marijuana smokers won’t hurt anyone. Maybe it could help the economy? I don’t follow politics since nothing has effected me personally. People will use marijuana legally or illegally which would you prefer?

AC/DC start their 2015 North American tour.

^^Good thing someone caught that with their cell phone! SURPRISE IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!

25 rock acts with unique set-lists

I’m watching CNN this afternoon about the shooting. The news anchor asks “Why did this deranged person feel compelled to do this?” I have a different question “Why does he have a gun in the first place?” OH, right because it’s a right for every American to own a firearm. Those rights seem to be doing wonders in America. This happening on almost a weekly occasion. “Ah, there was another shooting in the USA! Oh well, I’m responsible with my firearm, nobody can take it away. Hey daughter/son let’s go to a movie, make sure to bring your gun then you’ll be safe”. At some point you would think any President would make a stand & do something about this. I expected something to happen a long time ago, but “Hey, what can you do? Crazy……….right?”. “Other Country’s are weird, they don’t have a gun on every citizen?”. You know what else we don’t have? Weekly public shootings!

DRILL THIS INTO YOUR HEAD USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m not saying Canada or any other country is superior to the USA. Living in Canada I don’t need to think about where my firearm is, if I should ware any type of armor when I leave my house, or if I’ll be attacked in any way. I’m also not saying that every USA citizen is a gun lover, gun owner or that they’re all irresponsible with their fire arms. I’m saying that this type of thing happens far to often in the so called “Greatest Country on Earth”. For me, this not just a matter of sadness. It’s a matter of sadness, helplessness, redundancy, & now anger. WHY?

Bruce Springsteen, David Letterman, & Bill Murray make video cameo.

The music thing might not be enough for these two? Now they’re auditioning to be zombies in a future release.

Tremonti’s “Cauterize” album! If you like rock/metal GET IT!!!!!!

Songs I like, “Our Lady Peace” The first 4 albums are good, for me, there is a steady & steep downfall after the first album.

This where it gets sketchy for me, these were big hits in Canada though!

A fairly quiet music news day, actually the entire month of August has been unusually quiet.
