It’s Friday, I don’t want to be in here all day. Yesterday was a tad long winded. I’m a writer or I used to write lyrics, I do get writers block but I haven’t lately, sorry. My bad.

Now that this is on Facebook, please like & share this?

Favourite “Rage Against The Machine” songs? Can I just pick my 3 of 4 favourite albums? I own 3 of them on CD? POSSIBLE LANGUAGE WITH RATM?!!!!

I’ve never really been able to get into “Wilco”, think along the lines of “Blue Rodeo” watered down or “Phish”. I guess it’s a free download so have at it if you like?

I quite enjoy Paul Rudd movies. That thunder storm last night “sure escalated quickly”.

The recent release by Slipknot is just far to heavy for me. Quite a few others may call it their favourite Slipknot album. For the record I borrowed the latest album from my brother, listened to it a couple of times, gave it back, & deleted it from my iTunes. What I’ve heard from the 2004 release,Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses, sounds pretty good.

Bill Hader on Jimmy Fallon spit skit HILARIOUS!

In Flames shared it on facebook, I’ll have to check them out. Not a metal band, but a rock band. Much Music videos are gone I don’t like what’s on the radio, so facebook is my information highway for new bands!

2 singles & a 4 song EP. ^^This is one of the singles, sounds good to me I’ll put it on my list. I have other stuff to listen to before I listen to a new group. I’ve already bought two albums this week & have two more this month on pre-order.

I got my pre-order “Mister Asylum by Highly Suspect” last night & OH, MY that’s a good rock album! Kim was online for pretty much 4 or more hours after work with Apple support & almost finished fixing iTunes Match, but our internet bit the dust late last night. The woman watched a video from the album I had pre-ordered, that doubled, random songs from it on my iPod, & said to Kim “My that’s a different video”. Kim responded “That’s my husband’s music”. Fair enough 7 songs on the 10 song album are marked as “explicit”. I don’t always listen to the words unless they’re terrible, really good or that I can relate too. More the music or melody. Yeah, weird to hear from a guy who wrote lyrics in a group, I know. “Highly Suspect” is labeled as indie rock, but sound nothing like other groups in that stupid sub-genres, The Strokes, Rah Rah (Regina based band we played with at my old high school when they were starting out). I was in grade 8 at high school with “Rah Rah” member Joel Passmore, good guy, despite me not really knowing him that well.

Thank you Consequence of Sound another new artist for me to check out & put on my list to buy later if I like it. Sound Cloud link to the song inside the CoS link.

Teaser/Trailer for upcoming X-Files mini-series. I never got into X-Files.

Another new “Lamb of God” song featuring Chino from “The Deftones” is in my iTunes files with my other pre-ordered songs from the album out on Friday the 24th.

Dave Grohl interview on starting Foo Fighters. This is a snippet of the full interview of course there’s LANGUAGE!!!

New Darius Rucker video aka Hootie from “Hootie & The Blowfish” that name was meant to be the entire bands name. Same with “Alice Cooper”! Both became the front man’s name by popular opinion. There’s no “Led & Zeppelins” or “Pink & Floyds”

Yes, Dave Grohl plays drums while regular drummer, Taylor Hawkins, sings. Brian May of Queen plays on this studio version of the song.

This is why I follow the Rock It Out Blog! Members of Nirvana, Bad Brains, The Germs, & Scream play a punk rock show to 40,000 people. LANGUAGE OF COURSE, IT’S LIVE & DAVE GROHL HAS A DIRTY MOUTH LIVE!!! Out of the 8 studio albums only 3 songs have a 4 letter word in the lyrics, one of them is a rare B-Side Kim ordered for me from Best Buy only available in the USA Best Buy stores in 2005 or 2006?

There’s a show I wouldn’t attend. Nirvana was offered to play this tour/show & declined for good reason. Metallica at the time was a group of 2, 3, or 4 alcoholics & Axl Rose was/is unreliable.

If Facebook goes down so does this blog it might end in a few years? I’m not really a big fan of communicating through Facebook. If Apple or iTunes goes down, for me that will be “..the day the music dies…”! “….I dig those rhythm & blues & THIS SONG…”!!

Songs I like. “Matchbox Twenty” had to skip a few! DON’T JUDGE ME!

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle!

Here’s Halestorm’s 3rd full length album “Into The Wild Life” streaming for free. Release date on iTunes April 14th

^^All of these 5 songs are on the album to be released 1 week from today, that’s 5/15 songs.

Tell me this isn’t hilarious! Well it’s subjective I guess, but I think I just peed a bit.

I’ll never understand the attraction to streaming music?

James Hetfield (Metallica) & Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) headline charity show

This has been floating around facebook

^^For more of them just search “sketchshe” on youtube, they have their own youtube channel.

Metal fans, here’s a song from The Agonist’s 4th/recent album

Big Wreck “Hey Mama” live

For me the “Undertow” album by Tool is one of those albums I just give a pass to. Most groups I like have at least a few songs I just give a glance & move on. I find this song for me is very over rated, but that’s just me.

What the former Megadeth members have been up to

Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts debut album. Haven’t decided if I want it or not? I just saw that it was released.

Why did Nick Menza (Megadeth drummer) quit the band?

Mick Jagger’s not thinking about retirement.

Nine Inch Nails & Carly Rae Jepsen mash up. Surprisingly fits very well

Cash Grab? I already have 6 DVDs of Star Wars. I’m not buying digital releases with more bonus videos?

Her’s what I know so far this year. In January “Smashing Pumpkins” released “Monuments to an Elegy”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds was released in March.

Halestorm’s 3rd album will be released on April 14th.

Muse release in June

Mark Tremonti went into the studio & ended up recording 2 albums totally separate albums. We’ll at least see one of them released this year “Cauterized”

I’m assuming “Into Eternity” & “Third Ion” will each release an album this year. Both are Regina based bands.

Possibly a new Tool album as well. I’ve heard they’re in the studio?

Possibly a “Stone Temple Pilots” full album with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on vocals. I think they have finished recording the album so I assume it will be out this year. This is from the 5 song EP they recorded with Chester.

“System of a Down” tour started last night.

Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts tour goes on despite recent death of guitar player

Good news from “Barenaked Ladies” fans

Dave Grohl on “Late, Late Show” HILARIOUS!

Faith No More news & tour dates

My weekend was a 4 day weekend. We stayed here. Kim’s parents came to Regina but her brother had to work so we didn’t get a chance to see him. My father was ill this weekend & couldn’t make it for Easter supper on Sunday. I mostly sat on the couch. The Blue Jays regular season started yesterday & they won in New York. That doesn’t happen very often. They’re 1-0 right now but still 161 games to go. New baseball commissioner who’s added a few rules to speed up the game & maybe more to increase the offense? We had some friends with a new baby pop in for a visit who live over sea from Canada great to see them & Logan was the first child that didn’t immediately wonder why I have an eye patch. He didn’t back off, get scared or anything like that. He just wanted to suck on his sock. Weekend was pretty tame here

Songs I like. “The Darkness” I have the current 2 “Darius Rucker” albums & I like them, I was a HUGE “Hootie & The Blowfish” fan back in the day. So I’m rockin’ the unitard! WARNING IT’S HARD TO FIND ANYTHING BY THEM WITHOUT LANGUAGE!

I only have the first album & their greatest hits album. The have 2 singles from their 5th studio album on iTunes now for pre-order
