THIS IS A VERY STUPID LAW CAROLINA HAS ADOPTED!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

I exercised to…..Nothing at all. I did my crunches yesterday & I just need a break from exercising. I’ve had tunnel vision on exercising. I need to stop & smell the roses! I hope they don’t “…smell like poo, poo, poo….”

Wrong week to take off from exercising! The 2 late night talk shows I record, Jimmy Fallon & Conan are both off this week. I’ll grab my kindle & guitar this week? I can’t watch Ellen Degeneres during the day. I watch that with Kim as soon as she gets home!  I’ll be here as usual & keeping up with the blog & emails, etc.  My body could use a break though!

I really try to avoid politics in general. The recent law imposed by Carolina is flat out stupid & I’ll never ever understand the need for it. No it doesn’t affect me personally in any way, but it’s flat out LEGAL discrimination. A few years ago I wanted to see a particular show. It was a big name act, I can’t remember who?

I had the presale password & a gift card for the ticket company. Because I’m in a wheelchair, they told my mother over the phone that presale tickets are not allowed for wheelchair seating. They changed their tune & immediately got the manager on the phone when they heard the word “discrimination”!

Pearl Jam canceled a show in North Carolina because of the new law of HB2. I’m sure many people would agree with this decision!

Anything Gwen Stefanie has done outside of “No Doubt” is not really up my alley. Here’s her 27 date tour though.

What album are you waiting for this year? I didn’t know ‘Lacuna Coil’ was even releasing an album this year, that’s pleasant surprise! I’m waiting for that, Third Ion, Into Eternity, Tremonti, maybe Tool & maybe Alter Bridge? Possibly more that I’m forgetting, like I heard mention that Pearl Jam might release a new album?

I never understood the attraction to The Deftones? I do know a handful of friends that enjoy them, even my brother put them on as we drove to Winnipeg. They don’t make me cringe or anything, I’d just never purchase an album of theirs. I don’t do reviews, nor do I listen to Deftones. Here’s a review by Mr. Anthony Fantano.

Review on ‘Dust’ album by Tremonti

I agree! Alter Bridge needs to take advantage of the GNR reunion. Lot’s of free time for singer Myles Kennedy since Slash is busy for a while!

I guess today is the 22nd anniversary of “Live” the album “Throwing Copper”. I still like this album!

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday’s Rock It Out Blog

I’ve never been a fan of the majority of L.A. ’80s hair metal bands, other than “Mr. Big”. I can acknowledge that most of them have influenced the music I listen to currently. I would never say they’re terrible musician though. They’re all good at what they do/did obviously.

OK, so the Toronto Blue Jays have lost the first 2 games of a 7 game series. No need to hit the panic button yet. They also lost the first 2 games in a 5 game series against Texas. Remember it’s the best of 7 games, KC has to win 2 games to advance & the Blue Jays have to win 4 to advance, calm down Canada, it’s not over yet!

Now you can’t find this album anywhere, but I bought it ASAP, because Dave Grohl is on it!

Metallica fans aren’t holding their breath after the release of the last 2 albums. A TON of fans didn’t like those albums from what I’ve heard? Here’s James Hetfield with an update from the studio.

Halloween’s getting closer & closer. The only thing I enjoy about Halloween now is seeing the kids all dressed up! I don’t go to halloween parties or dress up. I just find that it takes too much effort for me. Anyways here’s www.loudwire.com picks for 10 scariest metal album covers.

Nice quiet weekend here. Went out for supper last night to “Chilis” with longtime friends & there young child. Which means I had to wear pants despite it being Saturday. I wear shorts indoors year round. Until we left for the restaurant I was happy as a clam, short shorts, beer, & baseball.

Songs I like, “Steppenwolf” All I have is a Greatest Hits CD.
