I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

“Dear friends, as you know I play very few shows, in an attempt to remedy this I’m playing a show this weekend (Saturday) at the cathedral social hall (formerly the freehouse) with my homies Mitch Fraser and J.D. Lemire. Shows starts at 9 and there is no cover so if you’re feeling like an outing and some live local music come on by! We’ll be playing some of my own music and some acoustic renditions of room333 songs.”

Article with Barenaked Ladies & sneak peek at their new video. Album out June 2nd

I hope all of the people wanting legal marijuana laws all voted! If they didn’t, like I never do, they don’t have the right to complain about what the government does. If people want it & voted whine & cry about it all you want. If they didn’t vote better off not to complain, I’m not supposed to since I don’t vote, & I don’t really care about this current hot topic. I’ve tried it & I don’t want or need it. All the power to those who like/want/need it.

I can’t believe this was already 3 years ago!? Feels like he died 3 months ago!?

I’m starting to really enjoy this album

June has 4 album’s I plan on getting from iTunes. 3 of them are pre-ordered already. Muse, Barenaked Ladies, Walk off the Earth & Tremonti. Tremonti is not available for pre-order on iTunes at the moment.

Standard Testing

I have nothing but respect for teachers! Most people have 1 teacher they will never forget. I have many, at least 5-10, including Mr. & Mme. Fletcher, Mme. Winter, Mr. Wilkinson, etc. So with nothing but respect for teachers, when was the last time you used long division outside of your job? I haven’t used it since University when I was in Engineering. Teachers tell you to learn this or that. What they’re really teaching you is how to continue learning once you have finished school & how to deal with what reality will throw at you.

Halestorm’s rig rundown.

I had far too many foot pedals. They’re fun for a while but after a while you get bored. I only really needed my tuner pedal, my wah pedal, noise compressor & digital delay pedal on stage. I had about 3 or 4 other foot pedals. Metal Zone pedal, phaser pedal, equalizer pedal & a chorus pedal which I used very rarely.
