FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & EMAIL

All of these “social media” sites require one thing, email! You join a social media site & TONS of people totally forget that they have an email. I always check both, why? Because not everyone has a facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. account. Everybody on these sites has an email account! How often does anyone send you an email via one of these sites? I do because some people are a touch stubborn & refuse to use their email. What did you do before the invention of www.myspace.com? You used email probably. I get it, it’s a personal choice. Just remember that not everyone likes these sites. I use facebook mostly for these blogs & a handful of people who have problems with their email account.

This music blog was for those who like similar music as I, & those who don’t want to be on a social media site. If it wasn’t for this blog, I’d be long gone from facebook!

Last night’s baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays 78W-59L & the Boston Red Sox 65W-72L prior to the game was a nail biter for me. Tied 1-1 into the 10th inning. Then the Toronto Blue Jay bats woke up & everything bounced Toronto’s way to win 5-1 in the end. I was nervous, I may have peed a bit on the couch. (Shh! Don’t tell Kim?)

I know baseball’s not for everyone, I get it. This has been an exciting time for the Blue Jays though! First time the fans have seen meaningful baseball in September since the early ’90s!

Today’s workout was brought to you by Dream Theater’s ‘Images & Words’ album!

Godsmack’s tour for 2015. I’ve never really listened to them other than seeing the “Voodoo” video on Much Music. I didn’t care much for that song so I never paid attention to them.

If Bruno Mars does the half time show at the Super Bowl, I might watch it? Last time I watched was because Prince did the half time show in the rain. I guess I did watch last year when it was Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Remember the ’90s when Edgefest would tour Canada? That was AWESOME! Despite me breaking my nose in the mosh pit. During Big Wreck’s set & this particular song.

I had never seen Keith Urban play bass? Can we put him among Geddy Lee (Rush bass/lead vocal) & Les Claypool (Primus bass/lead vocal) now?

How to anger Spider-man fans. Either way is fine with me, but it’s not how the original Spider-man comics were written. That’s what will cause the anger of die hard Spider-man fans. He quit Spider-man, so why does he have a say in what happens in future Spider-man movies?

Wednesday’s Rock It Out Blog

1st inning 2nd batter.

Kansas throws at his head in each of the next 2 at bats. They hit new Blue Jay SS Troy Tulowitski, then eject the rookie in the 8th inning. I guess MLB umpires can get away with anything? Blue Jays never retaliated after or before the warning, yet the field manager gets ejected from the game & suspended for 1 game. Then all of this nonsense & ballyhoo happens…

8th inning rookie pitcher suspended for 3 games, ejected immediately. If your on the mound to hit a batter, you throw at his torso or head, not his leg/ankle.

I saw “Montage of Heck” on youtube. It was either a fake or VERY over hyped.

iTunes is now illegal in the U.K.??????????????????

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/08/itunes-is-now-illegal-in-the-uk/b

If it becomes illegal here, I’m out for digital music. Vinyl it is! Buy it, rip it to a different software, & throw out the album. I’m not touching any streaming music site!!!!

The Zombies to release new album. I know this isn’t their song.
