THANK GROHL IT’S FRIDAY/MATTHEW GOOD BAND

I’ll post this then, breakfast, shower & then work on our DVR.  Yes, I got up early.

I don’t want to overload you with links, pick what you want to know about & feel free to skip the other stuff.  The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”, followed by “Soundgarden” the album “Live on 1-5”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Weekly exercise total; 1,200 pushups, 1,000 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 460 squats,  375 tricep pushups, & 200 back flexes.  Every day when I exercise I strive for it to be “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

Yeah, I was messing with the numbers again.

I put a lot of pressure on myself all of the time.  I wasn’t like that before cancer really.  When I was working I figured I’d better do the best I can since I’m being paid.  Same with being in a band.  People are paying to see our group play, they deserve to get the best show possible for however much they paid.  Even if it was a benefit show/fundraiser, they paid so let’s do this really well.

I never thought that about most other things, other than playing baseball.  That I actually practiced, with the team & on my own time.  “Dad would you please come hit some ground balls at me?”  “Could we go to the batting cages?”  “Can you toss some balls at my left hip, so I can practice hitting them into the back stop?”  I’d take off on my bike to throw a tennis ball in the area of where the ground would meet a wall & field it whether it was a ground ball or a fly ball.

High school was more of a “Meh, A-, good enough”.  I never really figured out how to study.  I just managed to go through school doing good enough, except university.  I’d study & read & still got poor results.

In SIAST/technical school, I just told myself to do things better.  I read the books & practiced the stuff I was about to be tested on.  I found it easier to do hands on stuff & figure out how to make it work.  I needed to do things hands on.  Reading a book is great, but I needed to experience what I was reading about.

MUSIANS & OTHER ARTISTS DO THEIR CRAFT REGARDING WHAT THEY KNOW OR HAVE EXPERIENCED!  IF THIS VIDEO OFFENDS YOU GREAT, IT SHOULD WATCH IT & FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING!

 

MATTHEW GOOD BAND

Another Canadian band.  Based in B.C.  I’ve got 6 albums & a single.  You really only need the final 3 albums that were BIG hits in Canada.  I have no clue how Canadian bands faired outside of Canada?  3 albums from 1997-2001 according to iTunes.  I thought the first album was released earlier, but we’ll go with 1997.  A group I wish would reunite, but I’m sure they won’t.  I don’t want to stir the pot, but I heard whispers that there was some animosity among a few members of the group?  Matthew Good went on to release a few solo albums after the group broke up.  I wasn’t big on them but I got the first 2 solo albums.  Here are 2 tracks from the 3 albums with the band & a song from each solo album I own………………..

So, MUSE is releasing a movie in theaters for one day, but not in Saskatchewan?  I won’t get to see that unless it’s released on DVD or Blu-Ray & it would be impossible to see Pink in B.C. tomorrow.

BUSY DAY, THIS WILL BE VERY BRIEF

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the self-titled debut album.  This is a FANTASTIC album!  You can hear a Jeff Buckley & Radiohead influence in it.

Friday night & Saturday afternoon are the last 2 spring training games for the Toronto Blue Jays in Montreal. Sunday, April 3rd they play Tampa Bay in Tampa as their first regular season game!!! I’ll see Kim again in the fall once the season’s wrapped up! Well I guess until all of the seasons finish I’ll be watching “Blue Jays in :30” the games highlights in 30 minutes. I hate watching those, but it’s better than nothing.

Kanye West is at it again.

We’re very excited to announce that our new album, Egomaniac, comes out June 10th! The first single, Take It From Me, will be available on all digital platforms on April 15th. Pre-orders for Egomaniac also start on April 15th.

All of this slamming Ben Affleck, yet Batman vs. Superman is the number 1 movie in the world? Ben Affleck says thank you for your money, walks away & drops the mic!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!! Notice that he’s not an official movie reviewer, but a fan?

Now a word from another random fan on facebook about the movie.

Screw the critics ..Fans loved it”

Any review on anything should be taken with a grain of salt. Make up your own mind about it. Do you want to follow the crowd, or march to the beat of your own drum? That’s exactly why the majority of this blog is me saying “Hey, I like this, maybe check it out if you like?”

This may be a good way to look at things. I don’t like sub genres. Metal is metal, rock is rock, pop is pop, country is country, EDM is EDM, etc. It’s either good or bad, whatever type of music it is. “You like Lamb of God? You must like everything metal”. Nope, but nice try!

Third Ion news/review.
http://disagreement.net/reviews2015/thirdion_138bit.html

I’m waiting for a few albums that have yet to announce a release date/pre-order on iTunes. Third Ion, Into Eternity, Tremonti (already touring), Tool (in studio), Stone Temple Pilots, Barenaked Ladies (in studio), etc. Yeah, because I don’t have enough music on my iTunes as it is already only 1,353 albums!? Tough to listen to them all in a year. When Kim’s not here the home stereo is playing music she doesn’t like! If she is here it plays her music or something we both enjoy Dixie Chicks, Jack Johnson, Barenaked Ladies, Ben Harper, Paul Brandt, jacksoul, etc.

I’m not usually impressed by blues or blues based rock but this Dan Patlansky has really grabbed my attention. Video inside of the link of his new video.

Lemmy won’t miss next show.

Lemmy doesn’t have a drivers license. If the car is moving it’s a stunt double. Lemmy is pictured in the close up shots.

Yes, I still exercise 5-6 days a week. I’m either doing walking with a walker, practicing stairs or my floor routine. My floor routine is typically what I do. I prefer to walk once a week in our underground parkade or practice stairs once a week in our condo. We also have a recumbent exercise bike in the condo workout room but it’s usually being used. My floor routine consists of 300 crunches in sets of 50, yoga for as long as possible & 40 push ups. Mondays & Fridays the push ups are difficult, I usually get to 15 at most on those days. I try to do 2 sets of 20.

Gotta say “Undateable” is HILARIOUS!
