THAT FELT LIKE A FAST WEEKEND…………….& I DON’T EVEN HAVE A JOB!

Riders lost……………….again. 0W-8L. I didn’t see any poorly played football, but that sure isn’t what the fans want to see as an outcome, not why I have season tickets? The Toronto Blue Jays on the other hand scored 36 runs over 3 days in Anaheim 9-3 Friday, 15-3 Saturday, & 12-5 on Sunday! They scored more points than the Saskatchewan Roughriders over the weekend??? I was certainly happy with the Blue Jays out come! CFL, I’ve lost “…..that loving feeling…” to watch EVERY game this year like I usually do. I only watch Rider games & can tell there’s a greater chance of them losing the game.  Yes, I “coach” the Saskatchewan Roughriders & the Toronto Blue Jays from my couch or in Mosaic Stadium.  Neither team listens to me, kind of like my wife?

It was going to take you back their anyways. I hear there’s a sequel coming!

That weekend seemed to fly by for me, I don’t know why? I didn’t do much, didn’t even go to the football game. It was windy & raining all day, cleared up by game time but we had already made our decision to not go.

John Oliver on LGBT discrimination. Race, religion, sexuality, etc. Wake up world! Does any of this matter, it’s 2015. Look at how far we’ve advanced as a society! A half inch forward! But everyone in the USA has the right to own a firearm & shoot someone when they feel threatened? If Hillary Clinton was black & gay, she wouldn’t even be a political figure!

David Gilmour covers The Beatles “Here, There, & Everywhere”

I just really like Pentatonix. They make it look easy!

You can’t get these on their albums. From what I know they’re working on their 4th studio album, the future album is to be original music. They also have 2 Christmas albums out at the moment.

All I can say is it’s better than the material on their 1st album, I guess?

Songs I like, “One Bad Son” If you like Guns n’ Roses there’s a good chance you’ll like these guys.

I was never a big fan of Guns n’ Roses. Can’t say I listen to this very often, maybe once a year?

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

I’ve been told it’s just random as to who’s cell phone this can be read on. Hopefully it works on yours??

Cassettes, Vinyl, &, CDs? There’s a reason the music industry switched to digital files. Convenience, doesn’t take up physical space & no worrying about an album getting scratched. More groups might be better off signing a distribution deal like Foo Fighters did? The problem with iTunes is that the rich/label get richer & the artist(s) get pennies for an album download. The music industry needs to figure something out fast or your new favourite artist won’t be around for long, unless they can afford to tour their butt off! It’s really a catch 22. They can’t sell enough albums to have money & they don’t have money to tour & get the word out themselves.

This is a great benefit show idea. Why do they need a mass murder to do something? Why are guns so popular in the USA compared to Canada? I’m 35 & I have never owned a gun. I’ve never even gone hunting, but I’m fine with hunting. Killing people with a gun….NO!

This doesn’t make any sense to me. Why did Tool have to wait to record their album until the lawsuit was over? Why not record it & wait to release it when the lawsuit was over? They weren’t in court for 9 years. They were in Regina for a live show in 2010, not in court in L.A.? I don’t care if they had a delay with the art work. People will buy the CD rip it to iTunes & likely forget about the art work.
