All I hear from my Chiropractor & massage therapist is how tight my muscles are.  Yes this nerve thing is driving me crazy.  At the moment, I could lay down anywhere, the couch is just slightly closer to food & the washroom, I hope I don’t get confused & get food from the washroom?!  Anyways, sorry but I’ll be mostly offline this week.  I really can’t sit in my chair for too long.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday’s Rock It Out Blog

I’ve never been a fan of the majority of L.A. ’80s hair metal bands, other than “Mr. Big”. I can acknowledge that most of them have influenced the music I listen to currently. I would never say they’re terrible musician though. They’re all good at what they do/did obviously.

http://loudwire.com/motley-crue-tommy-lee-sit-out-bridgeport-show-injury/

OK, so the Toronto Blue Jays have lost the first 2 games of a 7 game series. No need to hit the panic button yet. They also lost the first 2 games in a 5 game series against Texas. Remember it’s the best of 7 games, KC has to win 2 games to advance & the Blue Jays have to win 4 to advance, calm down Canada, it’s not over yet!

Now you can’t find this album anywhere, but I bought it ASAP, because Dave Grohl is on it!

Metallica fans aren’t holding their breath after the release of the last 2 albums. A TON of fans didn’t like those albums from what I’ve heard? Here’s James Hetfield with an update from the studio.

Halloween’s getting closer & closer. The only thing I enjoy about Halloween now is seeing the kids all dressed up! I don’t go to halloween parties or dress up. I just find that it takes too much effort for me. Anyways here’s www.loudwire.com picks for 10 scariest metal album covers.

Nice quiet weekend here. Went out for supper last night to “Chilis” with longtime friends & there young child. Which means I had to wear pants despite it being Saturday. I wear shorts indoors year round. Until we left for the restaurant I was happy as a clam, short shorts, beer, & baseball.

Songs I like, “Steppenwolf” All I have is a Greatest Hits CD.

Sports, I now it’s not everybody’s preferred topic. There is now a challenge in quite a few sports now, yes it is/will make the game longer no matter what but I have an idea. Take the official that made the call, the head official at the game, the person that requested the review, & decide the ruling right there. If whoever threw the challenge flag causes a scene toss them from the game. Don’t hide behind “Well the head official in timbuktoo says this is what the call should be”. Great, as a fan, I don’t care what someone says, who’s not at the game. Make the on field officials accountable for the ruling. Don’t let them hide behind what someone else has said!

Pentatonix, the deluxe version is preordered for release on October 16th!!! 17 songs. 16 originals & this cover…

Yes I grabbed the new Iron Maiden “The Book of Souls” album last night before I went to bed. Yes, it’s fantastic. It’s what you’d expect from Iron Maiden.

I know a TON of people don’t like baseball but record the next 3 games (Blue Jays in :30) starting tonight. The Baltimore Orioles & The Toronto Blue Jays hate each other & there is a lot of bad blood/history between the 2 teams. This series could get really ugly…….fast! Someone will throw at a batter for no reason, then the benches will clear & suspensions will be given.

Radiohead in the studio

http://www.nme.com/news/radiohead/88080?utm_campaign=nme-september-4-04-09-2015&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter

I agree with this video. Radiohead’s 4th album “Kid A” was very disappointing for me after the first 3 that are classics for me each one better than the previous. I was never a huge fan of Jack White either but I can’t find that video. I think I should make a video like these about my distaste for Metallica.

OFFENSIVE MUSIC

Kim threw out her back yesterday? She took some Tylenol when she came home yesterday. She’s home today since she can’t really move. She’s in bed at the moment.

Yes, I grabbed the new “Lamb of God” album last night to listen to while going to sleep. I fell asleep too fast only heard half of the album. I’ll let you know that the firs 5 songs are REALLY good for fans of “As the Palaces Burn”, “Ashes of the Wake”, & “Sacrament”, as for the rest of the album I’ll tell you more next week.

The music I listen to can be very offensive to others, & I get that. That’s why I don’t force my music to be played here on the stereo when Kim is home unless it’s something we both like or if it’s “….my birthday…..”

Rap music is my Kryptonite If it’s not “Beastie Boys” I’m out! Yes I like Bicardi rum!

For me most country music & rap music aren’t for me, slightly offensive. I don’t go to football games for the music. I say just play country music & 75% of the crowd will love it. Yes, more country music, I can tolerate it, it won’t make my ears bleed……………..much.

I forgot, I fell on Thursday doing my yoga. Not the first time & likely not the last.

Can we talk about wussy baseball players for a second? Good, thank you! There was a day game in Oakland yesterday. Blue Jays SS (Short Stop) had a ball thrown from the outfield. It bounced twice. Once on the ground, & once on the base runners back into Jose Reyes’ teeth, he left the game. Why?How many times have I blocked a ground ball with my chest, have a ball hit my head while at bat with a batting helmet on, etc. Just suck it up & maybe EARN the multi million dollar pay check to play a game? I’ve taken a baseball to the mouth before, no blood, stay in the game. I’ve left a game twice with an injury. Stretched tendons in my knee after colliding with a 1B player, & running flat out into foul ground to catch a pop up then two steps later running into a chain link fence, bending the top about a foot while getting a bruise, winded, & possibly some cracked ribs? If you’re being paid millions of dollars to play a game, suck it up & get on the playing surface Especially baseball, a baseball won’t hurt you unless you let it! Play the ball, don’t let the ball play you. I’m pretty sure one of my coaches said that.

I guess his “free world” doesn’t allow him to grow any of his food? I’m pro GMO, I’m cool if you aren’t ONLY IF you grow you grow your fruit & vegetables in your garden, if not, you do a scientific study & prove that 60% are wrong.

Watch the results from the audience after the debate , 32% pro, 30% against & 38% undecided before the debate, between scientists. After the debate 60% pro, 31% against, 9% undecided. I don’t vote, so I can’t complain, until you’re growing your food in your garden the way you want, what gives you the right to complain? It’s hard to argue with 1000s of scientific studies that result in favour of using GMOs. I guess the scientists keep getting it wrong?

Give the site a minute or 2 to load all of the links & everything should be fine.

Why is EVERYTHING on Social Media? Everyone has an email but not everyone uses it for Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. I’m on Facebook & email. Apparently that’s not enough? One of the bands I used to “follow” on Facebook said “Hey, join our twitter page”, why? I’m following you on facebook, is there more info on twitter that you’re not sharing on facebook? How about every web site join whatever social media site & just share links to whatever is on their web site? This blog isn’t touching any type of social media site. Why? BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD IS ON A SOCIAL MEDIA SITE! I use my email to talk with friends who have working email address’, a few people don’t have that? I don’t plan to be on facebook in forever, if I do, it will only be because of the information on facebook. Facebook is very time consuming for me. I like to get up while Kim is getting ready for work, pour myself some fruit & vegetable juice, a coffee & some water. I come in here, start my blog post, exercise, have lunch, finish up my blog post around, then hit the couch to watch something Kim doesn’t care to watch or something on Netflix. Facebook fills my day at the moment. One notification down then 2 or 3 more pop up “in the meantime”.
