I fell asleep to “Led Zeppelin” the double album “Physical Graffiti” followed by “Judah & the Lion”

It’s 8:30 am, I’m not sure what will be playing on the “stereo” today?

I did listen to “Alter Bridge” while cleaning the kitchen after breakfast

 

Seems like the “in” thing at the moment is to trash on anything & everything related to 2016?

Well then everybody’s going to expect a lot from 2017…………….wait………………….who knows what’s happening this year?  I didn’t have a problem with 2016 other than the political debates on every TV channel in Canada.  We got to hear all of the garbage from the debates whether we wanted to or not, & we didn’t get to vote?  Russia did, why not us?

If you liked or hated 2016 well what’s done is done, might as well live in the moment.  You can’t change the past & you don’t know what the future holds?  Live in the NOW!!!  I’m living in the now & anticipating the future.  I don’t know about anybody else, but each day feels like WWIII is getting closer?

WHAT?  The music you listen to does not define who you are!  Otherwise I’d be on the RCMP or FBI watch list!  Imagine the heat I’d get if I was a gay, transgender, bisexual, coloured & listened to metal as well as being in a wheelchair & having an eye patch.  Talk about discrimination right there!

http://loudwire.com/10-unintentionally-funny-news-reports-on-metal/

I deal with discrimination, but not nearly the amount that others do.  People see the eye patch & wheelchair & I get it, it’s not what they’re used to.  You can’t really judge people by taking a glance at someone.  ‘You can’t judge a book by its cover’.  I don’t look like a metal fan other than my T-Shirt.  I’m commonly found in shorts and a black T-Shirt with a band name most people don’t recognize.  Right there are 2 types of discrimination.  I give people some time to regroup & realize who I am, a global citizen, like everyone else.  Gay, bisexual, transgender, male, female, race, able, disabled, hobbies, etc.  When you get to the root of things, were all global citizens.  Why do we hate what’s different from “normal”?  Your normal is different from most others as well.  I like heavier music for the most part, does that mean I’m a bad person?  Why is it OK to watch people kill & injure others in mass shootings, but if you’re gay you’re labeled as a bad person in parts of the world?  Does that make sense to anyone?  I don’t get it?

 

Green Day’s new Trump trashing new video.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/watch-green-days-trump-trashing-troubled-times-video-w461234

Right there, we’ve made up our minds about him.  I’m not sure if continually stooping to his level will do anything?  I’d like to see a change, but I’m pretty sure being a Canadian living in Canada, doesn’t mean I can change another countries political situation.

 

I’ll take “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct” & the odd song here & there.  I’m not a Metallica fan, but they have their place as metal God’s.

http://loudwire.com/metallica-albums-ranked/

……and a sampling of these songs, NOT THE ALBUMS

The “S & M” album & one of their cover songs.

I guess I could make a playlist on my iPod, but I don’t like doing that.  I prefer a good full album.  I don’t like buying a song here and there.

 

Would you like to know which hard rock or metal band is playing?  This is for you if you answered “yes”.

HAPPY HUMP DAY (sort of), I’M BETTER

I fell asleep to a few songs by “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone” then changed it to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” half of the album “Facelift” then “Chromeo” half of the album “White Women”, then finally “Finger Eleven” most of the album “Five Crooked Lines”

Finally! Nothing hurt this morning. I raised my squats total today, hopefully I can achieve that total tomorrow.

Nobody likes feeling sick, neither do I! I don’t have time to be sick! Just a waste of a day for me!

Yes, I squeezed in a small exercise session, just not as many repetitions, sorry, I don’t remember what I was listening to on the stereo? Probably the “Stitched Up Heart” album?

I was watching the “Batman vs. Superman” movie & this is a dark movie. This isn’t just any stand alone Superman or Batman movie. I haven’t seen the “Kill Bill” or “Sin City” movies. This is by far the darkest comic book movie I’ve seen. Henry Cavill plays the role of Superman again, his parents are the same, Amy Adams is back also. I don’t recommend it for anyone under 18. I’d say it’s a Rated R movie, well the “Ultimate Edition” is, the non theatrical version I bought which also has the theatrical version. I like it, but that’s just me. It was slammed by critics, & wasn’t rated as a good movie by others on iTunes. I like it though. I’d give it 81% tomatoes on iTunes. You can rent it on July 19th. This is the “Ultimate Edition” trailer

It’s not hump day for Canadians, it’s only a 4 day week here. Friday, July 1st is Canada Day. I’m not checking but I think Canada is turning 149 or 150 this year?

More Foo Fighters confirmation from Spin magazine.
http://www.spin.com/articles/foo-fighters-finish-eighth-album-butch-vig/?utm_source=spinfacebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=spinfacebook I’d be leary of using the word “Epic” with any band! Although it’s an 8 song album as well as their longest playing album.

The Traveling Wilburys. Tom Petty, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, and Bob……….Bob Dylan. As the story (or many different stories) goes that I heard, They all just happened to be in the same town at the same time and figured they should hangout and record an album. They only have 1 double album. The first CD is darn good to me, the 2nd CD, not so much. Here’s a few songs from the 1st CD.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rzksozWBPY Original from 1988

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BukWT54Cv4U Headstones version I still prefer the original. Yes, That’s Hugh Dillon singing from the Canadian TV series “Flashpoint”
