I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

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

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

I hope this means they’re releasing something for fans.

“Hellyeah” announce lyric video. Former members of Pantera, Mudvayne & others…

Come on Saskatchewan, let’s live in the now, like so many other provinces!!!!!!

Yes, there are far too many artists that passed to early. For some it was they didn’t realize the cocaine, heroin, acid, meth, etc. They didn’t realize what they were putting into their bodies could kill them.

(Mother Love Bone) basically “Pearl Jam” before they found Eddie Vedder after Andy Wood died of a heroin overdose.

“Royal Blood” accepts Brit Award from Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page!!!!

They were AWESOME when I saw them open for Foo Fighters!!

“Tame Impala” shared by “Finger Eleven”…..

“Deftones” guitarist didn’t want to play on their upcoming album “Gore”

I’ll find one of her songs, just so I know who she is.

I’d like to know what her motive is to lie under oath? There likely isn’t one at the moment. I don’t know what the upside is of sending a producer to jail? I’d call it a closed case once he’s in jail.

Pentatonix shared it…….

I think the internet died today? Not much out there today.

I hope all of the Canadians out there are wearing their poppies!

This is how Canada thanks the veterans in November. If I could I’d wear a poppy year ’round but then it wouldn’t mean as much. If you get a month for breast cancer & Movember for men’s cancer. Why not an entire month wearing a poppy? Equally as important? Instead we wear a poppy from November 1st to the 11th no poppies tomorrow. Either way, THANK YOU to those that have died protecting our country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to a beer tasting last night with my dad at the Willow Park liquor store. Yes I wore my poppy! 18 steps up to the tasting area. Probably sampled 20+ different flavours/brands of beer. $25.00 come sample beer for an hour & a half. Then get 5% off with your ticket of whatever you want in the store. It’s not a huge place like the Calgary location, but there are different brands & flavours I’ve never had! We didn’t drive to or from the beer tasting. Kim & my mom dropped us off & my brother picked us up & helped me down the stairs. No, I wasn’t launched off the top step in my wheelchair!

Do I care if I see a “moon” onstage? As long as I don’t see any other nudity that’s fine with me!

I’m hopeful to see Trivium, who I’ve seen 3 times but twice with technical issues, in Saskatoon as well as Lamb of God, who I’ve seen once!

New “Halestorm” music video for the song “I am the Fire” I just saw tour dates, Moose Jaw on Tuesday, Saskatoon on Wednesday.

I’m still not a big hip-hop fan. I do like the Lauryn Hill album somewhat.

I Mother Earth’s facebook status

“BLOSSOM is #1 most added track at rock radio!! Thanks to everybody for giving the song a chance!! Let’s get requesting and push it over the top! Every bit of effort is helping this endeavour that we are now all on together!”

“Royal Blood” signed vinyl & CD. I REALLY like this album, it’s FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Songs I like, “Third Ion” The most delicate/weird but good metal I have ever heard. When the album kicks off with a “Mega Man” song from the original Nintendo/NES, you know you’re in for a weird ride!! Yes, Justin Bender, guitarist, is a former member of “Into Eternity”. Both “Into Eternity” & “Third Ion” are Regina based bands.
