DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” after most of “In Flames” album “Soundtrack to your Escape” then the first album of the double album of “The Beatles” album “The White” album

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

The 3rd album containing the first mistake they made, in my opinion. Most Foo Fighters fans love this song & sing along to it. I think last year was the first time I’ve seen them not play since the release of this album in November of ’99.

^^That’s Dave Grohl’s mother that flips him the middle finger at the beginning. He had to teach her how to do it, from what I heard at the time.

Here’s the deal. If I have to shave my face, the top of my head will be bald also, if not the beard comes back. My hair is down to ¼ or ½ inch, being completely bald isn’t that far away! Those are now the rules, shaving sucks or blows, whatever is worse!

Well it is no longer “ancient times”. Saskatchewan residents do not change their clocks. Why? Because we don’t need to! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

1 DOWN 161 TO GO

I fell asleep to “David Bowie” a Greatest Hits compilation.

For exercise I first put on “Better Than Ezra” the 13 song album “Friction Baby” when that played through I put on “The Birds of Satan” their only/self titled album (Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins’ side project, where he plays the drum & sings).

^^I bought the CD in high school in the $0.01 deal from BMG or Columbia House. I think I went back & forth 4 times on those deals after I had full filled my 3 purchases of $28.99? I remember subscribing to both twice.

1000 crunches is the new daily exercise goal with a 2 other exercises afterwards! If Kevin Hart can do it, there’s no reason I can’t, I’ve got the time

A great start to what will be a good story “win or lose” for the Toronto Blue Jays. 8 complete innings pitched by 24 years young pitcher Marcus Stroman followed by the 9th inning closer 21 years young Roberto Osuna. 2 run home run by short stop Troy Tulowitzki in a 5-3 win for the Toronto Blue Jays. Only 161 games to go until the last 2 at the beginning of October. Plus the playoffs if that happens? Water & grapes aren’t necessarily baseball food, it just feels wrong? Troy Tulowitzki first home run of all players in 2016.

I’m helping Kim out with the cleaning here more & more. I’ve been assigned bathroom duty. (Hahaha, I said doodie). I finished one washroom and moving on to the second bathroom on Sunday, all the while singing & rocking/headbanging to “…done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next one. Done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next…”. All of this was before my overflowing joy after a Blue Jay win!

I’ll let you know right now it’s summer which means I won’t be as consistent with my blogging. Wednesday’s blog may be a little bit later due to an afternoon baseball game. Don’t people work on Wednesdays? Thursday you might get a 4 day exercise total with a dash of music news? Friday, & Saturday, I’m not even going to pretend there’s a computer in here. I’ll catch you on Sunday with what could be a looong weekend update after the 3rd baseball game in Toronto that day against the visiting Boston Red Sox.

I’m not much of a Jonny Depp fan in any roll. I guess he’s a big enough star that he can afford to do what he likes, so he’s giving music a shot………………….wait…………………wasn’t he complaining about actors crossing over into music & vice versa? Yes, yes he was, but that was months ago nobody will remember that.

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!

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS DO THIS YEAR? I DONT KNOW?

I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

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

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

TRIVIUM/WEEKEND UPDATE

I’m taking Monday off from the computer all together. Sorry, tomorrow you’re on your own

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!!! Probably

Yes, I went to Saskatoon on Friday to see “Trivium” on tour for the latest release “Silence in the Snow”

Lead singer & rhythm guitarist, Matt Heafy, seemed to be a much more confident frontman & knew how to work the crowd. It was pretty cool to hear the audience sing along with this song over the PA before “Trivium” came out!!!

Great show! Thanks to Mitch & Rachel for letting me tag along! We heard 1-3 songs from all 7 albums but the first album. Show was in Saskatoon at the O’Brian’s Event Center” a security worker saw me in a wheelchair as Mitch was pushing me up the ramp & cleared a spot for me at the counter they have cleared out for me the last 2 times I’ve been there! Trivium did a one song encore of this song.

Great show & it was done by 11:15 pm or so. We were back in Regina by 2:00 am.

We stopped for supper at a pub a few buildings down the street that opened in 2013, ended up missing most of the first of 2 opening bands. AWESOME service there too. Our waitress sat down with us, asked us where we were from, if we had been at the restaurant before, said she’d help us with the extensive drink menu as well as the dinner menu.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday evening we sat on our butts & watched disc 2 of season 6 of “Boy Meets World”

I got all 7 seasons on DVD for Christmas, it’s kind of a high school crush thing for me. Kim got mad at me recently. She came home from work I told her I had watched episodes that day. Now I know not to do that. Saturday, Kim had a hair appointment. Brewster & I spent the day at my parents place. Dad & I watched the first 2 “Hobbit” movies on his HD projector in the basement on his 84” screen. “Hobbit” movies, popcorn & coke, good times! Kim came over to my parents so the 4 of us could have some tasty tourtier for supper.

Sunday I plan to avoid the Super Bowl at all costs. I don’t watch NFL football at all, too long for me. Canadian Football League aka CFL is my football. I watch the CFL & MLB baseball. Both are scheduled as 3 hour games, NFL is scheduled for 4 hours a game + all of the hype before & after the game. Too much for me. Even if a CFL game goes into overtime it feels too long for me. Toronto Blue Jays baseball, I can watch forever. Last season I watched an entire 19 inning game, a regular game is 9 innings. There’s no such thing as a tie game in baseball, they just play until someone wins. I very rarely watch the NHL. Yeah, a Canadian who doesn’t watch hockey, that’s me. I check out the standings once in a while. I cheer for the Montreal Canadians, the Edmonton Oilers and anyone playing against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Even people in Toronto are disappointed with their hockey team & the attendance is dropping steadily from what I hear on “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen”.

“Chevelle” are in the studio!!!!

FEBRUARY 5TH/FEVER IS GONE, I’M GOOD.

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot”

I woke up to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

February 5th 2008 will be a day I’ll have to acknowledge for the rest of my life. I wont celebrate it & I wont wish for history to repeat itself. This is the day I collapsed with stage 4 brain cancer. Oddly enough I had a flu for a week before I went to work that Monday. Sunday, February 3rd I had the worst headache I’ve ever had. Tuesday, February 5th I collapsed at work & that’s why this blog exists. It was suggested by my occupational therapist to keep people updated on my progress. I’m fine as long as I take the proper pills at the right time or else I wake up in the middle of the night.

Cover songs? I usually prefer the original. There is the odd occasion the cover is better. This first song I will always prefer the original.

Original followed by a cover which I prefer.

Risky to cover any “Pink Floyd” song!!!

I could go on forever showing different cover songs, I wont though here’s the last one though. I’ve got 60 “Foo Fighters” B-Sides, I’m guessing 40 of them are cover songs.

I like seeing a band play a song live than inspired them to make the music they make now.

This is the last one, I promise. The cover is no different than the original in this case.

If you like “Megadeth” at all, the new album “Dystopia” is great!

I had a request for more Grohl! I can do that! Here are some non “Foo Fighters” albums he’s appeared on or has done by himself, yes I have them.

All of the music & sent out to his preferred metal singers the album “Probot”

Soundtrack he did for a Jonny Depp movie on his own “Touch”

Drums on 2 “Queens of the Stone Age” albums

“Pearl Jam” released the album “Yield”, probably my favourite Pearl Jam album, February 3rd 1998. I was working with a tinsmith & his son installing A/C at a seniors home that summer. Played this album everyday in the car at 5:30 am on the way to the job. After high school graduation & before my first semester in the U of R.

“The Agonist” shared it…..

I could do an entire different blog on Dave Grohl alone. I saw something on www.youtube.com about 10 albums you didn’t know he played on, then I thought “Hey, you missed 3 albums?”.

However you’re getting this, please pass it along?
