I fell asleep to “Judah & the Lion” S/T album

I forgot to get the remote before I got on the floor.  Stretched & exercised in silence.  Big Wreck will be playing constantly for the rest of the day here.

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

Time to get back to some exercise.  My nerve doesn’t really cause me any pain any more.   It’s really only annoying & uncomfortable.  I did some exercising today, drastically lowered the sets though, & no squats until this thing is gone completely.  More stretching, with a dash of exercise.  Stretching & sitting around is REALLY boring!


The Watchmen, originally out of Winnipeg, will be releasing a live vinyl record.  No date or price announced yet though.


Heaviest albums of the 1970s not by “Black Sabbath”



Judas Priest albums ranked



Muse & 30 Seconds to Mars are hitting the road together.  Only Canadian date is in Toronto.



Nope, I didn’t watch the Super Bowl.  I’ve never been able to watch more than a quarter of an NFL game.  I’ve heard about the game though & that’s all I need.


“Highly Suspect” will be the musical guest on Stephen Colbert tonight.  Monday, February 6, 2017!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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”!

Monday’s movie review courtesy consequence of sound – The Jungle Book

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!


April 29th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next Friday or 12:00 am Eastern time Thursday night on iTunes!!!!

The Mother on ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Doris Roberts, died Monday at the age of 90.


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!

“Happy 22nd Anniversary Throwing Copper!

List your favorite songs and tag your friends”

Paul McCartney’s first performance of this song in over 50 years

The Agonist shared it. I love this band!

Last day of holidays, I really don’t feel like doing any exercise. Who knows, never say never.

Yes, this is on both Facebook or old school email for subscription!


Friday night & Saturday afternoon are the last 2 spring training games for the Toronto Blue Jays in Montreal. Sunday, April 3rd they play Tampa Bay in Tampa as their first regular season game!!! I’ll see Kim again in the fall once the season’s wrapped up! Well I guess until all of the seasons finish I’ll be watching “Blue Jays in :30” the games highlights in 30 minutes. I hate watching those, but it’s better than nothing.

Kanye West is at it again.


Dave Mustaine interview with FOX media

The Batman vs. Superman soundtrack is available digitally on Apple Music or CD & Vinyl on www.amazon.com & www.amazon.ca

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Donald Drumpf LANGUAGE IS CENSORED!!!

AC/DC & Guns n’ Roses fans might pee a bit if this happens


Deftones announce 2016 tour


Ian Fletcher Thornley performing the song “Secrets” live.

Kongos are done their new/3rd album!!!!

We’re very excited to announce that our new album, Egomaniac, comes out June 10th! The first single, Take It From Me, will be available on all digital platforms on April 15th. Pre-orders for Egomaniac also start on April 15th.

All of this slamming Ben Affleck, yet Batman vs. Superman is the number 1 movie in the world? Ben Affleck says thank you for your money, walks away & drops the mic!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!! Notice that he’s not an official movie reviewer, but a fan?

Now a word from another random fan on facebook about the movie.

Screw the critics ..Fans loved it”

Any review on anything should be taken with a grain of salt. Make up your own mind about it. Do you want to follow the crowd, or march to the beat of your own drum? That’s exactly why the majority of this blog is me saying “Hey, I like this, maybe check it out if you like?”

This may be a good way to look at things. I don’t like sub genres. Metal is metal, rock is rock, pop is pop, country is country, EDM is EDM, etc. It’s either good or bad, whatever type of music it is. “You like Lamb of God? You must like everything metal”. Nope, but nice try!

I exercised to “Chromeo” the album “White Women”

It’s almost time for the regular season & I’m more than ready for it!!! It’s like a really long Christmas for me!!!

The Blue Jays are handling the contracts of Jose Bautista & Edwin Encarnacion the right way I think (79 home runs last year between the 2). See where they are in the standings at the trade deadline or a week before (July 31st ), pick one if the team is doing well, try to sign a reasonable contract, trade the other. Or let them both test the free agent market & see what they’re worth. Not sure if that’s the plan but I know they haven’t been offered a contract.

Now that’s “electric”!!!!

I’m done, here’s your pop culture news!

I’m worried that Donald Trump even has a sniff at being elected as the next President.

Does this mean Canada & South America will be gated communities? AWESOME!!!!!

Fair enough. I like superhero movies there’s 4 I plan on purchasing on blu-ray this year already! Star Wars, Batman vs. Superman, Deadpool, Captain America:The Civil War, & who knows what else. I have some room on my shelf of movies & TV series. Star Wars is out on April 5th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

40 years ago “Judas Priest” released their 2nd album ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’


Chevelle has recorded another full song for their upcoming album. Photo & statement on Facebook!

This song has hit platinum on some music chart? I really like “Walk off the Earth”

New band recommended by Queens of the Stone Age……………introducing Sweethead!

This should be the actual letter I saw yesterday by Dave Grohl.



2 years & Frances Bean Cobain is filling for divorce.


I don’t want to report on this again, she deserves her privacy, which I assume is difficult for her.

Tom Hanks with Stephen Colbert as they ask the big questions

Linkin Park update from the studio. I got to the Linkin Park party far beyond casually late. “The Hunting Party” released in 2014 was the first Linkin Park album I bought. I borrowed the other CDs from a friend.


Ice-T on Jimmy Fallon


U2’s The Edge gets his geek on about his custom guitar


I don’t know who Nate Diaz is & I don’t listen to Justin Bieber.

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the album “Broken Crown Halo”

I exercised to “Baroness” the double album “Yellow & Green”

“The Odds” were great way back when. I’ve got their first 4 CDs. I’m good though with that & yes I still listen to them every now & then. I saw them live when I was in high school. I don’t think I need to see them again.


Masterpiece review of David Bowie by Consequence of Sound

I don’t know much about the NFL, I’d have to go with Joe Montana on this one as the greatest quarterback, at least in my lifetime so far.


I know where I won’t be, since I don’t have a current passport & I’m not a fan of “Rammstein “ in the least, never have been. If you like them & want to go to Chicago, cool with me!


Why do the members of “Slipknot” wear masks? LANGUAGE!!!!!

Yes, my passport is expired, I’ll likely never have a license, I exercise 5 days a week for at least an hour & I’m 36 years old now & have to really watch what I eat. That’s fine with me, but I do worry about Kim she needs a break…………………….from everything!!!!!!

Seattle, “Pentatonix” are coming

Rob Halford of “Judas Priest” plays rapid fire


“Politicians” I don’t follow them. SURPRISE!!! Now the people that voted for the Federal election are complaining. You voted, I didn’t. Good for you!!!!! Less stress for me!


“Opeth” helping out!!!


Donald Trump takes New Hampshire


Hopefully good news for the Toronto Blue Jays although he won’t be expected to play until May. When he was injured & wasn’t coming back last year, he was leading all of the rookies in almost all categories. I want to know what’s going to happen with Ryan Goins? His defense is far to good to sit on the bench as a utility infielder.


Devon Travis highlight reel

You don’t give the audience a Nazi salute then shout “White Power”, never, don’t ever do that!


Here you go Gwen Stefani fans. I’ll take “Bush” & “No Doubt” no solo stuff from Gwen though.

I get anxious for the weekend as well. I get to spend more time with Kim, I always look forward to hanging out with her! Especially since she’s been working a bit of overtime the last couple of weeks. It’s dark when she leaves & dark when she comes home. I miss her being around. Brewster’s fun n’ all, but there isn’t a lot of back & forth in our conversations. It usually ends up with one of us rolling over for a belly rub………………….& it’s not always Brewster.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the new “Coheed & Cambria” album “The Color Before The Sun”

“……I want them both now…….”

Oh, Bieber….that’s a perfect world, I doubt that will happen anytime soon?


I Mother Earth just tours & releases a single once in a while.

I’d love a full album & tour, but this is better than nothing! There’s another single on the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Judas Priest” talk new album


I was sure there was to be a full length album by ‘Stone Temple Pilots’ with Chester Bennington of ‘Linkin Park’ on lead vocals. Not just the 5 song EP they did? I guess I was wrong? It’s not on their website, Facebook page, or iTunes, my bad!

“3 Days Grace” didn’t really know they were still a band?


‘Pearl Jam’ illuminates stadium during cover of “Imagine”



I thought “Coldplay” called it quits after the previous album? I must have misread something. I like their first two albums, then they lost me?


“Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” Japanese trailer reveals more footage


I have a hard time believing Scott Weiland, as much as Axl Rose. This I likely the only song I like by “Velvet Revolver”. 1980s rock/hair metal I just can’t get on board with? I have this on CD but it’s not on my computron. I listened to it a few times, learned to play & sing this tune. Then never listened to it again. All when it was first released in the summer of 2004 or so.


Bob Odenkirk & David Cross talk about “Mr. Show” on Jimmy Kimmel


“I Mother Earth” single release on iTunes! Friday, November 13th Titled “Blossom”

Top 10 cheesiest one hit wonders of the 2000s AH, a walk through nightmare lane! A bunch of “Oh, snap I vaguely remember that”. Along with a LOT of “What? Who?”.

Pentatonix sing fan tweets

WHAT???? PHIL COLLINS IS REALLY GOOD. If you don’t like him that’s fine. Really a petition signed to “stop him from returning to music”?


Noel Gallagher gets what he wants or else he just starts rambling off bands or artists he hates in the most public & demeaning way possible. So, no ‘Oasis’ will not be reforming any time soon.


Ian Fletcher Thornley doin’ his thing, being AWESOME!! His solo album is now out! Acoustic guitar, banjo & I think I heard some mandolin on there. Great album to chill out too!


I’ve been watching “Red State” by Kevin Smith. Freaky, bleak movie, you wouldn’t expect that Kevin Smith has anything to do with it. Basically it’s a religious cult that kills what they think are sinners aka homosexuals & they’re OK with that? But how dare the county authorities kill members of the Church? Great movie, very vulgar & violent. Kim has it on her vito list so I can’t watch it hen she’s home. Fair enough I vitoed some of her movies. “Red State” is rated R so beware! I think the trailer is OK? I can’t believe there are still people like this out there!

Paul Stanley (KISS) address’ gay rumour. Why does he have to address his private life?


But Donald Trump on SNL will be HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!


Got this link from my brother about the I Mother Earth single. I’m going to wait for it on iTunes, here is their previous single.


Songs I like, “Tears for Fears” 1 album 8 songs, 2 songs you’ll likely recognize instantly

Call me what you want. I’m so sick of being bombarded by political verbal diarrhea. I don’t need to hear slimy politicians tell me what their opponent can’t do, or who’s voting for who? It’s your right to vote & that’s fine, remember it’s also my right not to vote.

As a society. I think we now rely on technology more than we need to. What did people do before cell phones? My car just stopped on a grid road out to the cabin years ago, & it was late. I could have walked since I was close, but what would I have done if I was in the middle of nowhere? Sing “Queen”?


Any “Back to the Future” movie still holds up! “Great Scott!” “Heavy!”


As much as I like Ian Fletcher Thornley/Big Wreck you shouldn’t tamper with a classic….in other words “That is so 1997”

Rock It Out Blog & I agree. I don’t ever expect everyone reading this to like the music I like. I just say what I like. When people go out of their way to bash ANY music act, it just seems like a waste of time & energy. Just say “Ah, no thanks” & move on.

Phil Collins biography next year……………….AWESOME!!!!!!!


Busy weekend here. Friday we attended a funeral of a distant family member. Saturday was my grandmother’s birthday party. I’ve been to a 2 year old’s birthday party & my grandmother’s birthday party, no I didn’t drink too much to cause any signs of a hangover either time but I’m tired after both! Sunday was Thanksgiving supper here with Kim’s family. I got to see a lot of people this weekend as well as eating WAY TOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finished off the weekend with a Blue Jays win, & supper at my parents house, meatballs with rice & a salad on the side. My grandparents were there along with my aunt from Airdrie

Songs I like, “Silverchair” Not a huge fan but I own 4 albums, that I rarely listen to, & in university we did play one of their songs in our cover band.
