I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

I exercised to “Eve 6” all 4 albums on shuffle

I was the only male that went into the French immersion in Kindergarten at Massey elementary & went to Campbell Collegiate, across the street for French immersion.  All of the female students I considered & still consider them as sisters, like Rachelle, Kendra, Fay, Caitlin, Shannon, Stephanie, Jennifer, Vanessa, & probably more that I’m forgetting.  I didn’t have a sister, only a brother (a very good brother).  We may not talk much, but after all of these years I still feel like their brother, & I just want to protect them in a brotherly way.  They’re doing really good though, I don’t need to protect them, but I’m always here if needed.

Not to dilute the previous paragraph but all of my family, friends, & acquaints’ get that respect from me!  You’ve got it right away & it’s hard to have it revoked!  I can be loyal to a fault.  If you don’t feel as though I’m respectful, that’s on me.  I want those who know me to feel a sense of respect, no matter how you feel about me.

My younger brother (7 years between us) is a good guy.  One day, when we rode our bicycles to & from school.  Some elementary student wanted to fight me.  I was in high school, & wasn’t sure what I had done, I hadn’t said anything to this kid, I was just waiting for Mitch.  I got out of school 10 minutes before Mitch.  This kid, slightly older than Mitch, said he wanted to fight me.  To this day I have not been in a fight that I know of.  Mitch heard this kid, kicked him in the shin & said “DON’T HURT MY CHRIS!”

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

How Dave Grohl’s coffee addiction put him in the hospital for 2 weeks, a few years ago.  The doctor asked him his age & was surprised that he was even alive.

SOME/MINIMAL LANGUAGE AT THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The recent release by Foo Fighters was met with a mixed reactions.  I think it gets better with each listen!  Now I’d rank it as 4 out of 9 studio albums.

No more FF talk!

Yes, I bought an album that is pretty much a rap album.  Hear me out?  “Prophets of Rage’s” new/debut album.  I like Rage Against the Machine, this new album has 2 rappers instead of one.  Rage Against the Machine’s guitar player, bassist, & drummer. Then they did “Audioslave” with Chris Cornell, & now “Prophets of Rage”.

The rapping has never bothered me in “Rage Against the Machine” & doesn’t bother me with “Prophets of Rage”!  Honestly, “Audioslave” got old for me fast.  I have all 3 “Audioslave” CDs, but I end up going back to the “Rage Against the Machine” albums, 3 of the 4 I have.

What has been fairly consistent with the 3 band members is they have very strong political beliefs & it’s very apparent in their music.  “Audioslave” was a bit different & steered away from being so focused on politics.

The “Prophets of Rage” album was also released on September 15th same day as the new Foo Fighters album.  Of course I listened & continue to listen to Foo Fighters, but “Prophets of Rage” caught my attention as a very good album also.  I listened to it on Apple Music first to hear it first to see if the rap was manageable for me.  I thought I fit very well with the music!

I’d put a few more songs here but the rest of the album is full of language.  The 2 other songs with clean vocals are not on www.youtube.com.  I like this entire album, I can listen to it without skipping a song.  If you liked “Rage Against the Machine” this album is definitely worth checking out.

 

Kids react to “Led Zeppelin”.  I agree with the first kid’s reaction to “Immigrant Song” – YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

 

Sorry, I can’t get behind anything Gene Simmons says.

I don’t watch NFL football, I’ve tried and can’t do it.  I do love CFL football though.

I can tell you right now why NFL players are taking a knee during the anthem though.  They’re not dishonoring the flag, military (some were in the military) or country.  Most players are Black & also play on a team with Caucasians.  They’re taking a knee for the fact that Donnie is racist.  The Caucasian players are joining their team mates in solidarity.  I’m sure when Trump isn’t president they will stand for the anthem.

When he says a person is a “son-of-a-bitch” that’s fine, but when an American doesn’t stand for the anthem that’s disrespectful?  If you’re at or watching an NFL game & 7 people leave after the anthem, they’re still supporting Donnie!

Now I hear that the NFL is possibly changing the rules for Donnie.  Players MUST now stand for the anthem.  I’d just stay in the locker room until the game starts now.  I’ve stopped watching anything with Trump.  Now he’s ruined the sports talk show that I watch, what’s next?

 

Lamb of God released their first album, under the name Lamb of God, “New American Gospel” 17 years ago on Tuesday.  They released one album previous to this under the name “Burn the Priest” it’s terrible to me & many others.  Here’s one song from “New American Gospel”
