BASEBALL’S OUTRAGEOUS SALARIES

Feedback is more than welcome! What do you like, what don’t you like. I can always tweak this to make it “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

I fell asleep to “Paramore” the album “Riot!”

I exercised to “Anthrax” 15 albums on shuffle

Yep it’s on Facebook if you prefer.

Baseball players can make more money in 1 year than any their fans will make in a lifetime without winning the lottery! A starting pitcher, who plays every 5 days, will make $31,000,000 this year & again next year & that’s top salary so far???????????????? A mediocre starting pitcher will make $10,000,000 or roughly that amount. I’m bad with money, if I have it, it will be gone in 5 minutes! I couldn’t find the purpose to spend over $2,000,000 in my lifetime. I could spend it, but not justify what I’d purchased?????? How on earth is an athlete going to spend $62,000,000+??????????????

Edwin is back with “I Mother Earth” & Brian’s out due to scheduling difficulties, fair enough. They’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album “Scenery & Fish” that Edwin recorded with them. I’ll miss Brian though, quite a bit!

Here are my 4 favourite songs by I Mother Earth! 2 from each singer. One song from each album in order of release.

Chad Smith, drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, & doppelganger Will Ferrell team up for charity.

All it says on the “Opeth” Facebook page is “Opeth 2016”?

16 years ago “Disturbed” released their album “The Sickness”. 13 or 14 years ago I bought it. I’m not in my 20s anymore. Hind sight is 20/20.

Finger Eleven shared it…….

Mitch & Jordan were in a rock band camp/program offered by Long & McQuade while I was working at the Staples Call Center. They wanted me to sing 2 songs live with them. I had to get off work early & rushed to the Exchange one afternoon where they were playing live at the end of their week long program.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Corey & Jolene McDonald asked us to baby sit Friday night so we had chicken fingers, “auntie” Kim gave Hannah a bath, we played with her sticker book, painted, & watched the first “Toy Story” movie. Hannah slept over with “auntie” Kim on our inflatable mattress in the living room. Brewster & I got the king size bed all to ourselves. I got up around 7:30 am & was told to paint ASAP with Hannah, she was waiting for me to get up & paint with her. I was painting with Hannah at 7:45 am, I didn’t even know that time existed on a Saturday? Jolene picked her up around 10:00 or so, we got the house back in order. Saturday night Mitch & Rachel came over to hang out. Pizza Hut, & wine, I’m in! Ended up watching “Fail” videos on www.youtube.com & solidifying my thoughts on cats. Cute as kittens, DANGEROUS when full grown. Mitch is getting old. They left around 9:30 pm, because he was tired.

Typical Sunday for us laundry, couch & TV. Kim’s back has been bothering her for a bit now. When she goes to pick something from the floor I always tell her “Wait, don’t wreck your back. Where do you want it? I’ll carry it for you?” I guess all of my exercise is doing something, even though I have a T-Shirt cycle of 10 shirts. I’m lighter than before, but all of my fat went straight to my belly?

 

I’m starting to become a bigger fan of “Coheed & Cambria” the more I hear them. You’ll either like his voice or find it terribly annoying. Here they are acoustic.

ROCK MUSIC

Thursday, June 27th

 

We were in McClain* today left at 11:30 or so for Sylvia Coghill’s funeral.  My mother would play any card game with Sylvia and their mutual friend Grace and Grandpa James once a week or so.  Until Sylvia’s family moved her to a care home in Regina.

 

All of you gamers out there.  PS4 or X-Box 1 or whatever Nintendo is releasing?  I don’t miss video games in the least.  I do get excited whenever I see the commercial for Batman: Arkham Asylum though.  I always think it’s a new Batman movie with Christian Bale, since the graphics are so good.  Then I remind myself that it’s a commercial for a video game and die a little inside.

 

Music news.  Alter Bridge 4 is finished and being mixed as far as I know.  I know they’re done recording at least and have announced a European tour starting in September.  For those who don’t know who they are, it’s the 3 guys from Creed with Myles Kennedy the vocalist for the Slash solo album.  Slash with Apocalyptic Love.  This is off of the first Alter Bridge album and the first cover song we learned and played at our show in my old high school.  Mitch was just finishing grade 12 there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPNxDLSh7WI   All of the 3 albums that are out I can listen to from front to back.

 

A Perfect Circle NOT FOR KIDS! First song they released  this the first album. An album I can listen to straight through!
