What do I want for Christmas?  The relief of feeling OK without having this sciatic nerve pain.  I’ve had more than enough of this thing.  I get up & sometimes it’s this excruciating pain, & other times it’s as though it’s not there at all.  Pick one or the other please & just go with it.  The Jekyll & Hyde thing is not cool.  Be consistent please.  At least let me know what it’s going to feel like when I stand up?

 

I prefer an album that’s around 50 minutes long.  Eps just leave me wanting more.

I do prefer the Tool EP MUCH more than their following full length album “Undertow”, I’m a rarity in this discussion though.

2016 was a season to forget.  As a Rider season ticket holder, I’d much rather have a winning season rather than a thank you email after a 4 or 5 win season & a ticket hike.  Just a ridiculous season in the CFL in general.  The championship game, the Grey Cup didn’t even sell out this year in Toronto’s new stadium.

Sounds as though Donald Trump’s inauguration could be rather quiet?  I think he should call Ted Nugent, he’d be there in seconds so would Kid Rock!  They’re both Trump supporters.

I just saw that “Walk off the Earth” is playing on a cruise organized by “Sister Hazel”?????!!!!!!  I had no clue “Sister Hazel” was still active???!!!  I guess it’s mostly because that’s no longer my go to music style.

Friday night we stayed in & popped in a DVD aka nothing too exciting. We’re getting old & tired. Saturday we had planned on hanging out in Sherry & James’ backyard, it was far too windy for that though. Sunday we went to my parents place for brunch with some of out of province Frasers were in town. We hung out there for a while then Mitch & Rachel came with us to see “Captain America : The Civil War” AWESOME movie, the action/fight scenes were too fast for Kim on the screen that large though. Then we rushed off to have supper at Brown’s Social House with some friends. Mitch & Rachel were off to visit with other friends.

Kim & I were tired Sunday evening. Kim & I don’t spend much time outside & she has a really red farmers burn. All of the time between brunch & the movie, roughly 3 hours, we hung out in my parents backyard. If there’s shade, I’m good, if I get too hot I head indoors to cool off.

Alter Bridge studio update

“Tracking for ABV is done! Mixing starts soon!”

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, defends Nickleback. I’m not a fan of Nickleback. That being said, there’s no reason to dump on them. You don’t like them, change the radio station, don’t buy their albums, wait 3 ½ minutes in a restaurant/bar until something else comes on & just let them be. Your going to waste your time & energy hating a group or artist? Because you heard 4 minutes of something you don’t like?

I love that people who vote get to sit on their big thrown and complain about whatever they want. I didn’t vote. I voted in 1 election in my 36 years, so I’m not allowed to complain. That’s fine by me! Is complaining going to change Justin Trudeau’s status? Probably not. So why complain, especially if I’m around? I’m not about to fix it for you?

Dierks Bentley interviewed by Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett. Dierks Bentley was an ’80s metal head? I’m not surprised, quite a few of them switched to country music in the new century.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I can’t wait for November. When the TV isn’t flooded with the circus in the USA. Really? They haven’t decided yet?

All of the 1980s hair metal should stay in the 1980s, in my opinion.
