I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Chromeo” new album “Head Over Heels”

 

A nice break this week from baseball.  The All-Star Game & Home run challenge are this week & I’m not 12 years old anymore aka I have no desire to watch any of it.

Question for non-baseball fans.  Baseball games are usually around 3 hours long, if they were 10 minutes shorter, would you then consider watching a game?  I wouldn’t but the league is coming up with new rules to speed up the pace of the game.  I’m pretty sure that won’t increase any fan base?

Anyways, I’ve changed my workout routine to abs & legs one day, then arms & back the next day.  3 exercises each day but all different muscle groups.  Less stress on my body in one day, hopefully less is more in this case?  It’s recommended by many.  If it works great!  If it doesn’t, then it’s back to the old routine, 6 exercises a day.

I don’t know how I got to 240 pushups a day?  I can only manage 120 right now.  I might revert to 100 & build up from there, next week?

 

BLUE RODEO

I love ‘em!  Great mix of country & rock.  I only have their “Greatest Hits”.  I had one other on CD that is long gone for some reason?  I don’t know a lot about them.  I know Chris Messer is or was a big fan.  Kim & I saw them once in Regina!  Great show, I’m just not a HUGE fan.  I believe the group is made up of 5 guys based in Toronto, Ontario.  I’m not really a country fan, but this group works fine for me….

I heard Chris Messer sing/play the song “Try” & asked myself “When did Jim Cuddy get here?”  Spot on and FANTASTIC!

 

OH, google!  Hahahahaha!

I fell asleep to “Rush” the album “Counterparts”

 

I exercised to “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Core”

 

I ended up spending most of Sunday on the computer again.  If there are any double files, I give up.

I miss my hobbies.  I loved playing & singing in a rock band, something I always wanted to do after I graduated high school.  I was always a singer by default, since I could carry a tune & I didn’t own a guitar until I was 21.  Practicing my guitar now is not fun for me.  My brain knows what to do, but my left (fret board hand) refuses to listen to me.  So after maybe 10 minutes, I get more than frustrated.  Since there’s no baseball on at the moment, I should really hunker down & get 1 of my guitars & really work on it.

As with most things, I never really practiced guitar or singing.  In my head I’d say “Ah, good enough”.  I did get a bit better with each rehearsal or show.  I never really sat down & focused on singing or playing.  I guess there were a couple times I’d check out a song I liked, learn the meat & potatoes of it in 30 minutes & leave it at that.  I learned these songs pretty well though….

The guitar part sounds much more difficult than it sounds.

This along with the entire 2nd album by Foo Fighters & some of their 1st, 3rd, & 4th album.  I guess their 5th album too.  Then they were far too difficult to play & sing at the same time.  I also learned a few other songs on my own…….

I was good enough to fill in for Chris Messer’s band “Left Foot Louie” who played polkas, country, & rock as the older crowd were calling it a night.  When Chis asked me to fill in for Tyler, I had one issue.  “OK but, you have to do the leads & difficult stuff.  I can’t do that stuff.”

I practiced once with Tyler Wanner, Corey McDonald & David Kliman.  I was impressed that Tyler was impressed that I could play “Slither” by Velvet Revolver & sing it also.  How could I not be impressed?  He listened to the solo twice & knew it!  BLEW MY MIND!

Check out this documentary about hired musicians who play whatever is needed on an album or tour with big name musicians like Billy Joel, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, etc.  It’s called “Hired Guns” on Netflix.

 

I am a U2 fan.  I’m still deliberating if I should purchase their new album?  However I’m leaning further to saying yes to the dress/album.  Oh, how Kim loves her TLC.  Yet, I’ve learned nothing.

Why do the Toronto Blue Jays have to wait for somebody else to make the first move?  The home run leader from last year just got traded to the N.Y. Yankees, & they’re in the same division.  The Yankees just added a 59 home run hitter to their lineup, move!  If nothing happens, say “Goodbye” to most of your ticket buyers, then sell the team that nobody will want.  They have needs not wants.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/blue-jays-dont-feel-pressured-rush-deal-weak-starting-market/

If the Blue Jays can dump Troy Tulowitzki at short stop & get Machado to join the team at short stop, I’m all in.  I wouldn’t let Josh Donaldson go if possible, he’s a late bloomer, & a good one!

I fell asleep to “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Purple” followed by “Blameshift” the album “Secrets”.  Woke up to pee & put on “Eagles of Death Metal” the album “Zipper Down”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I like kids coming over.  Kim loves it as well!  I like seeing any of our friend’s kids!  Kids really don’t care what anyone thinks.  I’m good with babysitting, then the parents get to take them home after we’ve taught them what not to do.  If I get confronted by someone who blames me for teaching their kid something I’ll reply “Oh, it wasn’t me!  What on earth are the Grandparents teaching this poor innocent child?”  I’m pretty sure I’d be a very immature father if I had my own child though.  The kid would likely grow up a little wonky?  This is my way of saying “You’re welcome”.  This could be one of my reasons for not having kids?  Be sure to watch the entire thing!

 

Well, no In Flames date in Saskatoon this time.  The closest to Saskatchewan they’re coming is Calgary & Edmonton.  Save my money I guess.

If you like Guns n’ Roses with a more modern edge, you may enjoy Diemonds.  Guns n’ Roses aren’t my thing, but Diemonds are FANTASTIC!!!!!!  Guns n’ Roses are closest thing to Diemonds I can think of.

Diemonds have 3 albums out at the moment on iTunes.

 

I love the Despicable me movies.  Can’t wait for this one

 

 

Songs I’ve performed with the handful, 3, groups.

Chris Messer & I are out for chicken wings after work one day & a song comes on, he pipes up & says “You guys should do this song!”  I reply “Are you crazy?  I can’t hit those notes?”  He tells me “Sure you can”.  We tried it & it hurt my throat the first few times, then I got it.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR!!!

Monday, January 5th 2015

If you’re reading this & you haven’t subscribed with your email address, you might as well subscribe if you like? Only my wife and I can see the email address’ that subscribe & we have no intention of signing your email address to another site. By subscribing to this site, each post will come directly to your email inbox. Just add your email address to the “follow” area in the top left corner of the post. You’ll get an email from the site with a blog post 5 days a week or whenever a post happens.

Halestorm, Tremonti, Muse, Fall Out Boy, Stone Sour, Lamb of God & Tool have a strong possibility of a new album this year, some even in January. Regina metal acts “Third Ion” & “Into Eternity” have a very strong possibility of releasing an album soon as well! .Tremonti, Halestorm & Fall Out Boy are a guarantee, a Stone Sour cover album may be as well. The rest are either in the studio at the moment or sitting on a finished album.

YUMMY!!! It looks good anyways!

“Would?” is by far my favourite Alice in Chains song. Did yours make the loudwire.com list?

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-kevin-spacey-perform-piano-man-with-billy-joel-20150103

This group is on a “watch list” for 2015 as a group that could be HUGEMONGUS! I’ve previewed their only album on iTunes. Too much of the same thing over & over again for me.

To say that I’m looking forward to the “In Flames” show would be a MASSIVE understatement!

This kid plays Nirvana’s “Smells like Teen Spirit” better than I can or could. I was expecting the 4 chords, the solo and I figured that would be it? Holy crap was I wrong!

Is there such a thing as a bad Tool song for their fans? I can think of one that’s not bad, but highly overrated “Sober”
http://loudwire.com/best-tool-songs/?fb15
I tried listening to Tool’s album “Undertow” with the song “Sober” on it, can’t do it. I don’t know what it is, that album just rubs me the wrong way. Everything else I have of theirs is really good IMO, even the EP “Opiate” before the full length album “Undertow” I find more pleasing?

I really just want to hear a new album from “System of a Down”

Steve Albini (producer of Nirvana’s “In Utero” album) is quite different, but I do agree with the way he likes to be paid. Only for the time he’s working with the group or solo artist, no royalties on albums sold afterwards. That was cool to see during the HBO series “Sonic Highways”.

I was listening to a “Rolling Stones Greatest Hits” album I recently bought the other day. I can’t remember which song it was, some HUGE smash hit everybody would know if they heard it. The guitar track was the right notes but sound terribly thin & irrelevant The 21 other songs we’re fine though. I don’t know if that’s what vinyl would sound like or not? All I know is that I’ve heard that song hundreds of times before and never noticed that guitar track sticking out like a sore thumb.

CANADIAN ROCK BANDS ARE REUNITING

Wednesday, March 26th 2014

 

I say this with a tear in my eye. The Canadian band I hated in the ’90s is back and I don’t like ripping on bands, but this one got me down. Many, many others will love this news, not me though. MOIST. YAY……………………….for everyone else and BOO for me!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0jJi0SlwuM

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8xBETsR5ck Both from their first album. They debuted in ’94, and everyone around me was acting like it was the 2nd coming of The Beatles. I thought “What? Why? They aren’t good to me?” I’d place them with Metallica, Guns n’ Roses and the ’80s hair metal scene in L.A. Here’s a few tracks I heard on the radio from their second album. A bit better, but still not for me!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8X9ahwoH04

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5-HDxyYlbw#aid=P-JEtTXrNus

 

They went on to make other albums after that according to iTunes. There weren’t anymore songs on the radio or videos on Much Music. I saw them once in Saskatoon since they were touring with I Mother Earth. Great segue!

 

I was reading on I Mother Earth’s website that Christian Tanna and Jagori Tanna (drummer and guitar player) are having a lot of fun coming up with new song ideas. I hope that means there’s a possibility of a new album? I’m not counting my chickens yet though! I really like I.M.E. albums. The first alternative rock band I got into, Mitch as well. 4 albums and one single when they got back together! A song from each album and the recent single!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRi6nhp8J40

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STN2F1oEbdY

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAs6o-kqRDg My favourite song by them!

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2TqH2rog2c Yes, that’s slap guitar not bass! Jag did that on pretty much every album. This album was titled “The Quicksilver Meat Dream” hence my poor choice of name on the Saskmetal.com board, Meat Dream or has Corey called me “Sausage Fantasy”. Here’s the single http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UBO_kc9XxI

 

Big Wreck is in the mixing process for their 2nd album since they reunited in 2012 after a 10 year split and 2 Big Wreck albums. They’re also making a video. So here’s a song from the 3 studio albums thus far…..

Chris Messer would ask me “Hey what’s that open riff that you play, how does that go? What’s that song called?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-AKI951poE

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsco84fcwj4

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HmW9rVAtVs

 

They also have a 7 song live EP on iTunes with the 7th song as a cover…..

Who doesn’t enjoy The Cars?..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwjlFFeR01E

The Watchmen are touring not recording though. Every song from them is good and they’re not anywhere near as heavy, just FANTASTIC!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Blh5mTzFNAY 1 of the 6 good things to come out of Winnipeg! The Watchmen, The Franklin family, My Grandparents and Father, The Guess Who, My Physiotherapist and her husband (another David) and Bohemian Beer! The Gagnon family moved to Winnipeg, they didn’t originate in Winnipeg!

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH6g0WVIf9A

 

The Odds have gotten back together too. 4 albums that started in the ’91.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZ_0R3wtuf8 “Neopolitan” album

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNtjksCUMIA “Bedbugs” album

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZFPiG8dEBk “Good Weird Feeling”

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eimpocAKIv0 “Nest”

 

The Tea Party are back as well. A 3 piece band with East Indian influences when I saw them way back when!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfaATa-qmG4 Our first band covered this as well as U2’s “With or Without you” same bass line though, never back to back.

BUSH, Formerly known as BUSHx

Monday, February 24th 2014

 

Sorry, my Tuesdays are busy, exercise and Kris from the ABI program comes here to play 2 or 3 games of cribbage with me.  Tomorrow some friends of ours are coming over from a near by town.  I just wanted to finish the “B” section off today and this caps off the “B” section.  I have “Boney M.” it’s just on my Christmas playlist with Nat King Cole, Harry Connick Jr. Twisted Sister, Andrea Boceli and a “Metal Christmas”.

 

Yes, the first band I was in with Rob, Dave and Rydell played the 3 big hits off of the 1st Bush “Sixteen Stone” album.  I did “Glycerine”, we all did “Machine Head” and “Comedown”.  After the 2nd album “Razorblade Suitcase” I thought they just disappeared and we’re releasing the odd single?  Boy was I wrong and I don’t say that often at least not when Kim’s within ear shot!

 

I bought the 2nd album recently.  I also bought the 2011 release “The Sea of Memories” which is a good rock album.

“Comedown”  Chris Messer always thought the bass line to this song sounded like a Bon Jovi song, it does!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS3GiUAvjJ8 the first song I learned to play & sing at the same time!

I am getting stronger with all of this @#$%&*%$@!@# exercise, I have never felt good afterwards, even in gym class in high school!  I have always felt tired and ready for a nap. 

 

Dave you have to take me out for a drive, no one will let me. I except nothing less than lights and sirens going and that’s a firm request!That’s one of the perks of being in a wheelchair with one good eye and slow reflexes.  I always have Kim, my parents or Mitch to drive me around.  We always get the best parking spot.  I don’t have to drive downtown, and random strangers always hold the door open for me.  A wheelchair has it’s pros and cons.
