Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle!

Motor Sister? I haven’t checked them out & I’ve never heard of them? What do you think? Facebook is the new way I find out about bands & I slap them on here for everyone to find out. No more videos on TV & run of the mill “rock” music on the radio! So facebook is what I use!
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/features/2015-03-13/if-you-buy-one-album-out-this-week-make-it-motor-sister

Found it on iTunes. This is their first album, at least on iTunes. Preview it if you like? I guess they’re members of other BIG name bands most notably Scott Ian on guitar from “Anthrax”!

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/ride/id956864403

I don’t have much room to purchase CDs anymore, music I get through iTunes. Our DVD & Blu-ray stand is also near full with a pile of movies & full series of TV shows. DVDs for TV shows & Blu-rays for movies. 3D movies do nothing for me since I have no depth perception & can’t see it, which is a good thing. Kim feels a bit sick to her stomach if we go to the theater & see a movie. I think our TV can do 3D but our Blu-ray player isn’t a 3D player

I don’t do reviews. Other than my favourite albums at the end of the year. I’ll present them to you & if you like them, cool they have another fan! I’m not always right, just about the music I like, hard rock, metal, rock, lil’ bit of country, some classical music & Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine & Linkin Park (which is the extent of my rap knowledge).

I like Halestorm. I have that album preordered on iTunes!
http://loudwire.com/halestorm-rock-new-song-i-am-the-fire-live-in-england/

Do I like music? Lil’ bit. 1342 albums on my iTunes. I don’t delete anything unless it’s dreadfully terrible to me. Lot’s of it I remove from my iPod but I keep it on my iTunes. Of course there is stuff I don’t like, I just try to keep this blog positive now. I’ve done the other thing & that was terrible, that’s not me at all. I am a negative person but I know when to shut my yap. That previous thread was the total opposite of who I am. I don’t have to try to be nice & I didn’t like who I was at all.

O’Brians Event Center in Saskatoon your staff is AWESOME!

Even if others are already seated there. Thank You! Always fantastic after the drive from Regina! I can’t say enough about your staff FANTASTIC!!!!

Quote of the weekend or quite possibly of the year goes to Anders of In Flames “I need to be serious for a moment…..Don’t drink that !#@$%@# Budweiser!…………….Life is too short for that @#$%! Stay away from it.” Say that in a Swedish accent or any accent it’s hilarious!!!!!!

All of these award show & contest shows are just over hyped popularity contests to me. As much as I like Harry Connick Jr. American Idol has improved with him as a judge, but it’s still nothing more than an elementary school talent show. I left the room last night while Kim watched it.

Another site to stream your music.
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/01/this-company-bills-itself-as-the-netflix-of-vinyl-records/

I prefer to own my music, that’s why I use iTunes for now. I don’t know how actors get paid for TV shows and movies only released on Netflix? They’re putting stuff on there so we use it for now, I still prefer to own the actual DVD/blu-ray. Free music I don’t really like the idea of streaming music. It’s fine if you want to do so. I use iTunes since it’s what the label/management agrees to, but still the artist kind of gets back handed on an album purchase, that I don’t like. I know that when I spend money on iTunes for whatever I never have to worry about it going away. Sure I could find a torrent site & download whatever for free, I just don’t like the idea of it.

I’ll try this again! “That Stupid Band”

December 5th ’99 My Grandmother passed of breast cancer. The rest of that month I would drive to Moose Jaw & back while blasting “There is Nothing Left To Lose” by Foo Fighters. . That “stupid band” helped me through that. I didn’t show up for an English final exam in University. Then my brother’s depression they helped me deal with. With one song “My Hero” broke down sobbing in my parents basement when Kim and I first started dating. Couldn’t play the song on my guitar all the way through!

I don’t understand why there are people labeled as “music snobs”. If you don’t like something don’t listen to it, pretty easy! If you’re in a bar, restaurant, mall, etc. wait a few minutes until something you like comes on or leave. Don’t make a fuss about it. Example, I don’t like 99% of the music at the Saskatchewan Roughriders games, but the music is not why I’m there! I’m there to watch a football game. Nobody can tell me “Hey, that’s terrible! Listen to this instead!”. Anyone can SUGGEST something to me & I’ll check it out, see if I like it? This blog is about the music I like, just a suggestion. You don’t have to agree. If you don’t like it that’s fine with me. I’m not a Jehovah Witness telling you to listen to this, vote for this, believe in this, etc. You do what you want with your life & if I don’t like it, I’ll get over it.

I wasted so much time & energy being a person I would hate if someone said those things to me! The best advice that I have ever received about anger is “Are you going to worry about this in 20 years?” Robin Dowel-Macpherson, my physiotherapist, told me this when I was swearing at myself walking with my walker. Nope, don’t let the little things bother you, because it really doesn’t matter in the big picture. She & Mei helped me quite a bit other than physio therapy & occupational therapy. Awesome people!

I’ll leave you with a song today….

Drummers smarter than EVERYONE? http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/05/its-official-drummers-are-smarter-than-you-and-everybody-else/

 

Killswitch Engage, yep a metal group. I have 4 albums from iTunes out of 6 or 7. That’s enough for me since they all sound very similar. My favourite song by them was wriiten and performed by the late Ronnie James Dio, probably most known for the 2 albums he sang on in Black Sabbath.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR7dG_m3MsI from their S/T album a “live” version on this album released in 2009.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzRGcNPqTeg from the 2013 album “Disarm the Descent”

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MH0388nCLqo from the 2006 album “As Daylight Dies”

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSVlgO0S3Dg from the 2002 album “Alive or Just Breathing”

 

Killswitch Engage isn’t my go to metal group. I just started listening to them last week, but I’ve known about them since before I had cancer! 2003 maybe?

 

I forgot, here are the list of releases I’m looking forward to this year which are guarantied to be released this year, Phillip Phillips on Monday, Linkin Park in June, Chromeo has been released, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters in the fall, In Flames, Birds of Satan released earlier this year, Big Wreck ( I’ll buy their CDs until they’re well known in the USA) and I think that’s all! Lot’s of good stuff for me!

 

All is well with us here. Air condittioner should be working today! It’s already been 77F or more 5 times here! That’s fun to workout in………………..NOT! The second it hits 75 I start sweating and I mostly wear shorts in the house.

IN FLAMES

Tuesday, April 29th 2014

 

I saw them live in Saskatoon in the final “Sounds of the Underground” tour when Sherry and James lived in their house there. Usualy I have to hear an album first but they stole the show. I own 5 CDs and 5 albums from iTunes albums. I have their promo album “Lunar Strain” CD released in ’94. Kim and I found it at a now gone store when I was well enough to travel in our wheelchair van in 2009 or 2010. James and I saw them on the “Come Clarity” tour. There’s an album being released by them in 2014 later on. I can’t wait! Here’s a few tracks by them, “Sense of Purpose” and “Come Clarity” are 2 of my favourite albums from them. WARNING THEY’RE A SWEDISH (DEATH) METAL GROUP ! If that’s not you’re thing, don’t bother opening the links! James and I also saw “Cannibal Corpes” at the show and we both said “Looks difficult, but sounds like crap”! We were there to see “Trivium” who had technical problems.

 

Everybody seems to cover this “Genesis” song… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ3f-2Eo94U from rhe “Reroute to Remain” album in 2010.

GENESIS

Saturday, April 19th 2014

 

Another Greatest Hits album, but with 34 songs on two albums. For me, Genesis and Phil Collins are spot on with a Greatest Hits album. I don’t need anymore of that. Not that the rest is bad, I’ve never really heard it. These few Genesis songs I can’t get enough of, hello what ’70s?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU9lv_WqK6k “In Flames” from Sweden did a cover of this, so did “Disturbed”

Back to Genesis originals like the awesome “Land of Confusion”. I bought this album and I gave it to my father. Genesis was one of his many albums I grew up with, mostly on road trips that felt too long for Mitch and I at a young age.

This is shaping up to be a FANTASTIC year for music! Big Wreck, Ed Sheeran, In Flames all guaranteed to have a new album out this year and Foo Fighters are ½ way through the recording process.

 

Ed Sheeran’s single available on iTunes. I think I’ll wait to hear the rest of the album before I do or don’t buy it. It seems like a big departure from his previous album to me.

Big Wreck’s new title track and single on iTunes. I’ll buy the CD when it’s released. I want to support one of my favourite groups until they become a house hold name, at least in North America.

In Flames I’ll pre order on iTunes when they release a single. Same with Foo Fighters.

Unless there’s a bonus something or other!

FLATLINED

Wednesday, April 16th 2014

 

Stabbing at the Cornwall Center downtown mall in Regina.

Little bit of music news to start the day. “Big Wreck’s” new album will be released in Canada June 10th, July 15th for the USA. I plan on purchasing the actual CDs until they become a household name at least in North America.

 

Tomorrow “In Flames” will release the cover artwork for their release this year, on www.inflames.com ! Usually I need to hear something recorded first by a band, not the case with these guys or a at least 50% of the bands I’ve seen.

 

AC/DC is NOT breaking up, despite rumours from the band yesterday. Here I was thinking “YIPEE”, no more “I’ll ride the E string on bass and harmonize up top since I don’t own a 5 string bass”. I know that TONS of people like them and that’s fine. Early “Rush” and any “AC/DC” are among the reasons I don’t listen to “104.9 The Wolf Regina’s Rock Station”

Flatlined, 2 albums on iTunes. Very good guys who quit music when Wes, the lead singer went back to school. Not slagging him in the least. We got to play 3 shows with them. One of the benefits of being in a band, you get to meet and here other bands that nobody knows of. They even came to see me in the hospital when I first got sick. Mitch also gave them our parents basement to sleep in while on tour across Canada.

 

There’s another metal group called “Flatlined” on iTunes, so beware non-metal fans. You’ll want to check out “Guilty of…” and “Deaf Leading the Blind” on iTunes. I’m pretty sure that’s all they released. They’re from St. Catherines, Ontario. They had our “Chemical Horizon” album being played on the radio in Ontario. Their bass players name is Chris Fraser, that’s why I added my middle initial to my name on facebook. Some of his friends in Ontario kept sending me “friend requests” on facebook.

 

You’ll want to preview they’re stuff on iTunes. Not metal, just very good!

Unless you would like to hear them on the same song live. They can pull it off live as well.

 

 

What happens here during the day? I have my breakfast of fruit and sometimes 0% yogurt, then I do 100 crunches, 30 leg lifts on my back, flexing my abs underneath my keg. Get on my stomach, hands and knees to do yoga, followed by as many push ups (20 today) from my hands and feet. Come in here and write a blog. Then watch TV or movies. Sometimes do more push ups and crunches. Then I practice walking, up and down stairs or ride the exercise bike when Kim gets home from work. On random days, once a week I play cribbage with my mother or we drive out to the lake to see how much snow or ice is left. That’s my day!
