Quiet weekend here. Friday I had a doctor appointment, then Kim & I went out for brunch. I overate, felt bloated the rest of the day. Kim felt the same way & got a bad headache to go along with it. We stayed in & rented a George Carlin HBO stand up comedy show. Saturday night we stayed in as well and watched “Moneyball” with Brad Pitt on Netflix. Today we celebrated father’s day since my dad was in Winnipeg that day. Finger food, shrimp, deviled eggs, bruschetta, vegetables, dip & a fruit tray! My dad now has a drone to pilot from his cell phone. When we left everyone was alive, we’ll see what happens over the course of the week?

New Third Ion tune!

What a way to start a blog? The legendary artist Prince has passed at the age of 57. Yes, I’m a fan of his!

This week is backwards for me than normal weeks. I still get up early, but I don’t do my exercises? It still feels wrong to me. I get up & have my fruit & vegetable juice, a coffee, & fill my water bottle. Then I sit on the couch & watch what’s left of the previous nights baseball game. Blue Jays in :30 does nothing for me. I much prefer to watch the entire game.

I still have the TV show ‘Criminal Minds:Beyond Borders’ left to watch from last night, I’m not sure if I want to watch that show? We had 3 or 4 different Law & Order shows, 3 CSI shows, a failed Criminal Minds spinoff & now they’re trying another one. I’ve been a fan of the original Criminal Minds since the first episode. I don’t think I need to watch a spinoff?

Did everyone hear the big news in Saskatchewan today? Garth Brooks is coming to Saskatoon! I’ve seen an advertisement on Facebook at least 5 times today.

“Here we go you guys! You’ve heard the rumours for years, you’ve waited for DECADES and now… GARTH BROOKS IS COMING BACK TO SASKATOON!

Trisha Yearwood will be performing as well! Saturday, June 11th at Sasktel Centre! Tickets on sale Friday, April 29th at 10:00am. Also, we’ve got a TON of tickets to give away. So keep it locked on The Bull for your chance to win.

Actually… now that we think about it. Want our FIRST PAIR OF TICKETS? Like and Share this photo! We’ll pick a winner Friday morning!”

Not my thing at all, but I hear he puts on a very good show!

My sister-in-common-laws “I’m Deerunk” song. “We should sing!!!!!!!” “No Rachel we should drink some water”

AC/DC news. Zakk Wylde formerly of Ozzy Osbourne shares his thoughts.

Guitar lesson from Megadeth?

The super group, Gone is Gone, made from members of Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, & At the Drive In. Have released a new song. I’m still not sure if I’m sold on them? Mastodon & I don’t mix very well & I’ve never heard of ‘At The Drive In’. Oddly enough the metal fans I talk to adore Mastodon?? I must be missing something?

Kongos shared it again………

Update from Alter Bridge in the studio

“Alter Bridge update – All 14 songs are done with main guitar. Now comes acoustic guitar and solos. Mark has 11 solos to track.”

Alter Bridge want to release this 5th studio album in June before they begin their tour in early July! Now that’s ambitious! They’re hosting a listening party for fans in the Orlando, Florida area on June 6th I think they said! That’s really fast, promising all of these dates before the album is even finished? WOW!

Tool is sharing a few songs at the moment….

This has become a very ugly world we live in!! If you’re anywhere near Saskatoon please help find these kids!

This is as much as I know about Kesha. I hope this guy gets what’s coming to him? I don’t think she’d fabricate a story to take it this far? The song is just a reference point, I really know nothing about her.

Halestorm shared it…..

I love this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmm, this reminds me of something else years before?????????? The writers must have had writers block?

Perhaps the Bruno Mars Pandora radio skit?

Just a TON of Prince news today. “I can’t believe the news this year…” there must be a phenomenal super group of passed musicians from just this year. Not good at all. “Thursday bloody Thursday”

THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE

 

I first tried to fall asleep to “Dream Theater” the self titled album. Only about half of the album, I then switched to “Crowded House” the self titled album for 3 or 4 songs. I finally settled on all songs by “Chevelle”

I exercised to “Fine Young Cannibals” the album “The Raw & The Cooked”, then a portion of “Dire Straits” the album “Brother in Arms”

MORE BASEBALL TOMORROW AFTERNOON! SHORT POST TOMORROW!!!

I watch some sports. Mostly Toronto Blue Jays baseball & the Canadian Football League. Never the NFL/National Football League, the NBA/National Basketball League & very little NHL/National Hockey League. The NHL, for me, has gone on a steady decline since the mid ’90s when the New Jersey Devils created the neutral zone trap, a fancy word for a style of defense. Ever since that time & whatever commissioner Gary Bettman has done to the game, just sucks. It’s all about fist fighting and really hard body checking. I think I could count on one hand, maybe 2, the amount of periods of NHL I’ve watched since the recent strike/lockout. Parts of games, never an entire game.

They’re doing this shoot out thing now after 1 period of overtime. I don’t get that at all, it’s just like watching the skills competition at the All-Star break. If they did the same thing in baseball it would be like the home run derby the day before the All-Star game. 1 pitcher, 1 back catcher & pick 3 or 4 hitters from the other team. No defense at all. If it’s not a home run, it’s a strike. 3 batters in the top & bottom of one inning. Now that would be BORING!!

I miss hockey from the 1980s & the 1990s. Play however many sudden death periods of overtime until someone scores. Sure it takes longer, but that’s more exciting to me. Maybe the game goes until midnight, oh well? If a professional athlete is making $100,000-$12,000,000 a year they should earn their paycheck. Overtime isn’t an everyday occurrence in the NHL. Tie games in baseball don’t happen during the regular season or the playoffs they play until someone wins!

And that’s why I don’t watch much hockey at all. Most of the NHL I watch is because it’s on a TV at a bar or restaurant right in front of my face.

I felt like yesterday should have been Friday, probably because I’ve been doing more exercise.

Yes, we didn’t go walking this. We’re both tired at the end of the day. So we’ve made a schedule to go walking twice a week, & for me to use the recumbent exercise bike for 45 minutes or more once a week. The squats make a huge difference though. I’ve been doing those all week.

Pre-order on this Friday. Album release April 29th.

A time laps video of my father’s company setting up their display at the “Spring Home & Garden Show” ‘ONAV’ is the company’s name. Pretty much anything electronic, security system, flat screen TVs, home theaters, any wiring, etc. As my dad says “Your money, & our time, we can do anything”

If Donald Trump is elected President of the USA, I could almost guarantee a WWIII. Somebody will say something he doesn’t like & he’ll immediately hit the red button. I don’t vote in Canada for anything, but if I could vote as a USA citizen, it certainly wouldn’t be a vote for Trump.
