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.

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

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

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………………..

Is this not incredible???!!!!  Most people are putting all of their eggs in “Stormy Daniels” basket to get rid of Donnie.  Most powerful person in the world might be taken down for an affair.  Fool me once shame on you, fool me multiple times I’m calling “Stormy Daniels” & her lawyer!

New “Chromeo” on June 15th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!
