No summer vacation for us.  Kim’s work is rather shorthanded this month.

Friday ended with me having a beer & a covfefe while watching “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown” followed by a trip to “The Queen City Ex” aka the carnival aka “Buffalo Days” to see “I Mother Earth” & “The Watchmen” in concert for a WHOPPING $12!  AWESOME!

We can look at this a few different ways.  A) I saw two of my BIG name bands from the ‘90s last year in 2 separate concerts at the casino.  B) I just saw them together Friday night at the travelling carnival.  C) Since 1999 I’ve been able to see them live while drinking a beer & paying less to see them.

The Watchmen are a fairly successful Canadian rock band, & incredible live.  The albums are great & then you see them live & they blow your mind they’re so good!

I Mother Earth is well taken among hard rock fans, but not for everyone.  I know Kim didn’t want to be there, but she stuck around, she could have left, I could have gotten a ride home with Mitch.

I guess Edwin’s back & Bryan’s out doing his solo country thing or is a concert promoter now.  Unfortunately Edwin & Bryan sound nothing alike.  We likely will never hear anything from the last 2 albums live (Edwin recorded just the first 2 albums).

The Watchmen played first from 7:00 pm – 8:20 pm or so finishing with their big hit………………

I Mother Earth played just as long & radio edit versions were not involved at all.  I think when they made the set list they may have been thinking something like this “They want this 7 minute song to be 5 minutes?  Too bad we’re making it 7:30 minutes long!”

I typically don’t like bands that improvise/”jam” on stage, if I’d have to choose one band that does it, I’d pick I Mother Earth in a heartbeat.

All we heard from I Mother Earth was about 5 songs from the first album and I’m guessing 7 songs from the second album.  Yes, we saw some slap guitar!  Not slap bass, but slap guitar in a solo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Who else does that?

This solo below has slap guitar in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Drummer, bassist, guitar, vocals, & 2 additional percussionists FANTASTIC!

I had somewhat of a high school crush Friday night watching these bands.  I discovered The Watchmen at home from sick one day on Much Music, Canada’s MTV.  1994 I saw this video on MM……………

1996 rolled around & this video and song was everywhere……………..

 

If it costs me $6 per ‘90s Canadian rock band now, there are a few more I’d love to see doing a reunion tour, that will likely never happen or they’re still together!

  1. A) Finger Eleven still together. They haven’t stopped since they changed their name from “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” & recorded the album “Tip” in 1998
  1. B) Matthew Good Band almost a guarantee to NOT get back together
  1. C) Wide Mouth Mason, maybe?
  1. D) Our Lady Peace together & opening for Guns n’ Roses, I don’t know if Our Lady Peace ever really stopped, much like Econoline Crush? Both just seemed to fade away from the spotlight? I’m not a Guns n’ Roses fan, I won’t be there.  I did just see Our Lady Peace open for Bryan Adams though.  They’re together & they’re good, as long as they keep the bulk of their shows on songs from their first 4 albums, which they did when I saw them!  Our Lady Peace last released an album in 2012 & Econoline Crush is recording with a new contract & label.  Currently there are 5 of their albums on iTunes, the most recent from 2010, a greatest hits album.

There could be many more added to that list of ‘90s rock bands, but that list would make me EXTREMELY happy!  Big Wreck has been back since 2011 & have released 3 albums & a 7 song EP of live songs & a cover.

The coolest thing about Friday night was that I was wearing a metal band T-Shirt, Lamb of God, & was complimented on it twice!  Once waiting for the show to start & some guy flashed me the metal horns on our way to our vehicle after the show.

I’ve had this experience before wearing one of my Into Eternity shirts in Boston & Edmonton.  Into Eternity is a local metal band that has done quite well as far as underground metal goes, check iTunes or your local music store, you’ll see 4 albums & 2 singles.  The first album is difficult to find.

Saturday evening we were babysitting for our friends.  Kim took Hannah to the “Emoji Movie”.  I stayed home with Brewster & the Roughriders game & the Blue Jays game.

 

Sunday Kim & Hannah had breakfast before I was even awake from sleeping on the couch.  I’m not sure where Brewster ended up sleeping?  He tends to roam when Hannah’s here.  He’s not sure how he’ supposed to act around young kids, he tends to get scared & find a quiet spot or curl up on my lap.  He does this also if there’s more than 3 or 4 people around as well.  Poor guy’s getting old, he’ll be 12 years old on January 31st, 2018.  We got him from a breeder down the street from us in April of 2006.

We finished Sunday with an early birthday BBQ for Corey at their place & a pile of Corey & Jolene’s friends.  I’d call it an annual event (well, the last 4 years as far as I know).  Corey smokes a brisket, we all eat & drink!

While at Corey & Jolene’s place I had a VERY odd sense of anxiety.  I don’t know what caused it, it certainly wasn’t anyone’s fault.  It was all in my head!  I didn’t freak out or anything, I just clamed up & felt out of place?  I couldn’t tell you why, I just felt awkward among people that I have no reason to?  Weird feeling, never happened to me before?  Again, nobody’s fault, it was all in my head.

Monday will be a lazy day for us, get ready for the week, watch whatever is half decent on TV or Netflix, lay low & prepare for Tuesday.  Yes, Saskatchewan, Canada has the most days off than any other province I think it is?

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

I’m a big fan of Lamb of God, In Flames, Trivium, & many more metal bands!  Trivium has made 2 albums that are terrible to me though.  I have issues with “The Crusade” & “Shogun”.  I do like the song ‘The Crusade’, as for “Shogun” they seem to get stuck on a riff & repeat it many times.  Quite a few fans call “Shogun” their favourite album.  I don’t get it, but to each their own!  I got into them on the 2nd album “Ascendancy” released in 2005.  I own most of the CDs, until the last 2 which I bought on iTunes.  Anyways, here’s a review/reaction to the new single & the instrumental ‘The Crusade’.

Pearl Jam shared it, & it’s the first song on my favourite Pearl Jam album!  Listened to this album every day on the way to my summer job in 1998!

 

FYI – The Paranormal album from Alice Cooper is REALLY good!

 

So many conspiracy theories flying around the death of Chris Cornell & Chester Bennington.  Leave it alone & let them R.I.P.

 

Yep, it’s a marathon, not a sprint at a Foo Fighters show!  They tell you as they begin a show.

How do the Blue Jays lose 16-7 on Friday in Houston, then play the same team the next day & win 4-3 in an extra inning.  Then go into the 9th inning ahead 6-3 and lose the game in the 9th inning 7-6?  Best team in baseball (Houston Astros) vs. the 2nd worst team (Toronto Blue Jays).  If you’re a casual Blue Jay fan, you may not want to watch a game for a year or two, this could get horrific!?

 

The fact that Pauly Shore is still around is incredible.  I love the Movie “Son-in-Law”

I fell asleep to “Linkin Park” their first album “Hybrid Theory”

I exercised to “The Barstool Prophets” from the album “Crank”

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

As much as I’d like to start of full on, I can’t.  I’m not supposed to do the full amount I was doing before anyways, so the doctors tell.  So I’ll level things out at a slightly smaller number.  It will be very slow going until I get a cortisone shot anyways.  I like proving the doctors wrong, but better safe than sorry since I’ve run out of tax claims for the year for chiropractor appointments!  I can’t wait to have a doctor lean on a 6” needle with all they’ve got into my spine, YAY!

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

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

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

Don’t feel as though you must open every link.

I have what’s called an ‘acquired brain injury’.  I don’t know of anyone else that has had my specific type of brain cancer.  It’s more common in children than young adults, that’s not cool.  I was in a program with other people who’ve had brain injuries.  We’d all get together to play games.  I didn’t get to go very often, Brewster is high maintenance & has anxiety attacks when left alone.  I’m sure there were people in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center that have experienced or future patients that will.  Sure it changes a lot of things, you just have to make adjustments yourself!  Do you have a child?  If you do, I can almost guarantee your life is different now than it was before having a child?  Life changed instantly & now it makes things slightly challenging or just different.  Nobody necessarily likes change & I totally get that.  I have a lot of help if I need it, there’s even a program at the WRC called the ABI program to help me anytime down the road if needed.  In the end, this being alive stuff sure beats the alternative!

My sciatic nerve is better, but there is still a tiny bit of pain there.  It’s still the best it’s felt since November.  I saw my massage therapist last week.  She said it was much better even before my massage.  After my massage she told me to see my chiropractor, she said I had a few ribs out of place.  I can’t feel anything out of whack in my ribs, just my lower back & a bit down my right leg.

 

Barenaked Ladies shared it.  Maybe they should take some time off instead of releasing an album of previous material with another group?

 

So I could go to Moose Jaw to see the “Offspring” a 40-45 minute drive to see a band that I’m a very, very casual fan of.  This was the first song my first band learned to play (I was but a singer at the time).

 

Or I could make the mind-numbing 2 & ½ hour drive to Saskatoon to see Ed Sheeran, who I really like.

I like Ed Sheeran, but I loathe the drive to Saskatoon & I’ve seen Ed Sheeran in Regina once.  Do I go to Saskatoon or hold out for ‘In Flames’ to come from Sweden to Saskatoon.

I can definitely say I don’t need to see The Offspring.  I’ve seen In Flames once or twice & wasn’t disappointed.  The sound for Ed Sheeran in Regina was dreadful & everybody watched 75% of the show through a cell phone.  Kim would prefer Ed Sheeran, so we’ll see how much tickets are?  In Flames have yet to announce any North American dates.

This show could be WAY over our budget?

 

Why does U2 need to reissue one of their biggest albums for $24.99 on iTunes with a bunch of older songs added to it?  ‘The Joshua Tree’ was roughly $25 in the ‘80s when it came out on CD.  Thanks, I bought it decades ago & it sounds fine.  32 extra songs from different albums that older U2 fans already own?  I don’t know how many people are newer U2 fans that would purchase this?  I’m a big U2 fan, but this just screams “CASH GRAB” to me.

 

I guess U2 was my absolute favourite band until I Mother Earth released “Scenery & Fish” in 1996.  Then Canada began their post-grunge movement.  Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good Band, The Tea Party, The Age of Electric, Limblifter, Moist, The Inbreds, Finger Eleven, Treble Charger, Econoline Crush, etc.  I guess you could put Big Wreck in here as well. Their 1st release was in 1997.

 

Let me set the scene for you, this happened quite often.  It’s 1996, my brother & I are doing dishes after supper.  Our parents have retired to the living room.  My brother & I are addicted to I Mother Earth’s “Scenery & Fish” album.  After a few minutes of the album playing in the kitchen our mother yells at us “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!”  We turn it down, but not enough?  She yells again “TURN IT DOWN NOW!”  We turn it down more, now we can’t hear it.  So we turn it up.  This struggle goes on until the dishes are done about an hour later.

 

OK, does anyone gain anything in this scenario?  Do the verbal abusers gain anything?  This is just one example, in the end it’s just people hurting other people for being different.  WHY?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/dear-lesbians-and-gays-im-bisexual-and-you-treated-me-like-crap_us_58c1a38be4b054a0ea68e31c?section=us_queer-voices&

 

I guess “The Black Keys” are taking a break.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/patrick-carney-talks-black-keys-break-post-touring-ptsd-w471520

This group just drives me nuts for some reason, but so does Guns n’ Roses, couldn’t tell you why?

 

Whether you like them or not you had to know they’d get an award for sales at some point.  I just assume many people own everything Nickelback & lie to others saying “No not Nickelback, I hate them!”  Wait 4 minutes & the radio will change.  I don’t like them, but they’ve done nothing to harm me in any way.

Not much going on here.  My chiropractor told me to do as little as possible this week.  Couch & TV.  So really nothing.  That’s great for a few days, it gets very boring after a few days.  It’s been a lot of resting since mid-November with some stretching involved, BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

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

“Foo Fighters” the S/T debut album

“Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk Hop n’ Roll”

“Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

“Big Wreck” the album “…in loving memory”

“Nothing but Thieves” the S/T debut album

Being physically handicapped means nothing to me.  At this point, it’s normal to me.  It’s been that way for a while now.  I know some of my limitations & I know some of the stuff I can do.  Not necessarily limited completely.  My brother & his girlfriend live in a building with no elevator.  They live on the top floor/the 3rd floor.  It takes me a while, but I can get up there.  I think I’ve been there 3 or 4 times.  Rachel knows the deal when I get up there.  I’m greeted with a beer & a dill pickle.  That’s my welcoming gift.

I don’t really feel self-conscious in public anymore either.  If someone sees me & has a question, that’s fine by me.  I’ve never had someone ask me anything but if they want to, there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

Sounds like “Finger Eleven” have multiple ideas for the 20th anniversary of their first album “Tip” which was released in 1998.

I’ve performed this song many times with my bro!!!

3 Chiropractor appointments & 1 massage therapy session on my lower back, right butt cheek, & right leg.  The 3rd trip to my Chiropractor really helped!!  Only problem was the muscles would tighten up overnight.  I’d like to do some mild exercise but it hurts even when I transfer to my wheelchair.  Friday will be all stretching.  Actually, I’ll just continue to stretch until it’s gone.  “Right now” it’s just annoying.  I’ll stand up, have a brief pain & try not to do much.  It only hurts when I move.  Sitting or laying down on my left side or on my back, I’m fine.  Seems like my body just gave up on me.  I’ve decided to take it easy for the month.

I’ve never really been to a massage therapist.  My cousin is a massage therapist though, out of province though.  I was getting up to put my shirt on & ended up breaking the massage table.  I felt like an idiot, snapped the face hole right off.  She said it wasn’t a big deal.  She’ll get a new table from amazon.  Of course we’re going to pay the $20 for it, I just felt so bad.  Lesson learned “Do not put any weight on that part of the table”!

Without doing any exercise it gets EXTREMELY boring for me.  It makes for a very long day.

This just got me riled up!

This is sad news for In Flames fans.  I just watched their live DVD on Tuesday.  At least nobody died nor is the band breaking up.

My brother’s a big fan of Finger Eleven, naturally I got into Finger Eleven & he got into Foo Fighters.  I usually put on the most recent release from Finger Eleven, “Five Crooked Lines” lately I tend to listen to their first album, Tip, or the album they made when they were called “The Rainbow Butt Monkeys”

Yes, we covered this song.  I love this song!!!!!

 

I saw these 2 groups 1 on Conan, & 1 on Jimmy Fallon.  I’m pretty sure I don’t need them but figured you might like to be in on the ground level?

 

YAY, Alter Bridge are doing the typical Canadian tour…….fart noise!  Toronto & Montreal.  I need to move.  That ain’t happening!
