Friday night we stayed in, babysat for our friends who were off to see “Blue Rodeo”.  Hannah slept over aka I hit the couch & she takes my spot with “Auntie” Kim on the king size bed.  The leftover chicken fingers are a pretty good deal though.  “Uncle” Chris doesn’t mind!

As for the rest of Saturday not much happened.  Kim & I on the couch we rented the movie “War Dogs” based on a true story, a rated R story.  Lots of cocaine, weapons, swearing, & illegal smuggling.  Good/interesting movie but not for kids.

Today is shaping up to be a lazy day on the couch again.

 

When my Grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer on December 5th 1999, I was in my 3rd semester of Engineering at the U of R.  I was really lost at the time, totally missed a final on purpose.  I would drive 40 minutes away to Moose Jaw & blast their 3rd album, There is Nothing Left to Lose, which was released that November, all the way & back.

After her memorial the rest of my aunts, uncles, & cousins came to my parent’s house.  I didn’t know how to react.  I went to my room in the basement, put on headphones & blasted “I Mother Earth” the album “Blue Green Orange”.  That was the first big loss to me.  I was a mess at the time.

I guess all of this means that I mourn a death, tragedy by listening to music & other people deal with things their own way.  Whatever helps you in a rough situation & doesn’t bother anyone else.

As for Friday’s “Depression” post, well it can be any type of mental illness.  Talk to someone about it.  I can think of 8 or 9 people including myself that struggle with a mental illness.  Don’t be afraid or feel that no one will understand.  Don’t be afraid of taking whatever type of medication a doctor says you should try.  There are millions of people that will listen to you.  Please remember you’re not alone and you will likely need help from others, don’t feel embarrassed about asking for help.

 

10 best live acts in hard rock or metal.

http://loudwire.com/10-greatest-live-acts-in-hard-rock-metal/

I’m gonna go with the acts I’ve seen.  The other’s I haven’t seen or have no desire to see.

I saw Queen a couple of years ago with Adam Lambert singing for them.  I’ve never seen “Iron Maiden” live but I hope to change that one day.

 

Help Alter Bridge create the set list for an upcoming show if you’re going to see them?

I’d throw this into every set on the tour.

 

Weekend music; Judah & the Lion, Boston, Diemonds, The Damned Things, Metallica, & Megadeth.

^^ This what they played on Conan.  WAY better live on TV.  On the album it’s my least favourite song.

 

Dave Grohl turned 48 years old on Saturday!

 

Katy Perry produced a commercial against hate!  I’m not a fan of her music, but this commercial is very well done!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/10-things-we-learned-hanging-with-dave-grohl-20141124

 

66 hard rock or metal guitarists of all time.  They couldn’t at least round it up to 70, 100, or down to 50?  66 seems like an odd number number to stop at?????

http://loudwire.com/top-hard-rock-metal-guitarists-of-all-time/

Who I think is the most under rated guy on the list is…………..John Frusiante.  Sounds like it is easy, I couldn’t play it!

OK? No point in lashing out about it, it wont solve anything it’s done, it happened & it’s over, be angry if you want for half an hour. You likely won’t remember this in 3 weeks.

I was the idiot who pretty much blasted whoever that was different from me. That’s not right! Will I remember having cancer in 20 years, sure. Will it be a huge problem? No! I work out to change my situation. Nobody gave me cancer. Do I like what happened? Of course not. So I’ll try to fix it MY WAY! Friends & family support are always welcome, but only I can make a difference for me! In other words “Hold my beer & watch this!!!!” This entire ordeal could be an epic fail video on www.youtube.com

Oh, do I love me some Prince!

YIP, YIP, YIPEE!

Today’s workout was bought to you by the letter “T”, as in Trivium on shuffle. 6 albums I listen to & one album on CD in the closet behind me. It’s not allowed on my iTunes! I don’t put baby in the corner, I put CDs in my closet (it knows why)!

The only song from the album “The Crusade” on my iPod & iTunes, an instrumental

The Toronto Blue Jays won! On to Kansas City on Friday (October 16th) to start a best of 7 games for the American League Championship Series! 3 pitchers used in yesterdays game, all under the age of 22. Marcus Stroman started & went 6 innings + 2 outs. Aaron Sanchez pitched 4 outs (1.1 inning). Roberto Osuna is 20 years old & pitched the 9 inning, the game finished at 6-3 including a VERY long 7th inning (53 minutes) that everyone could have used a rule book for. I’ve been watching the Blue Jays since 1991 & I have never seen 1 inning take so long with 2 bench clearing occasions. Nobody fought but it was very close to getting ugly.

If you’re in the crowd as a mother protecting her new born, stop throwing any projectile on the field! Alquida is pretty much on par with the Toronto crowd from yesterday. The crowd reacted in one of the worst ways possible. Even Toronto players were trying to stop the crowd from throwing garbage on the field.

The Texas Rangers made 3 errors in a row?! Yeah that was a fantastic game. I hear 75% of Canada jumping on the Blue Jay band wagon! “Welcome aboard I’ve been here since I was 11, 1991, the year before they won the World Series!” I watch a TON of Blue Jay baseball, yet I’ve never seen most of the stuff that happened last night!

You just don’t do this EVER as a pitcher!

Josh Donaldson post game interview “That play just pissed everybody off”

I don’t watch much National League baseball, that’s the baseball I find boring.

A “Die Hard” prequel? Both of these movies have the potential to be great, or fall flat on their face.

Walk off the Earth shared it, here it is! I do like the previous album more than this new album. Here’s one from each album.

I’m sure it will sound like this track rather than the 2nd link.

I just found this link for “The Best of Regina”, my friends Cam & Michelle run the preschool “Bloom” on the ballot. “The Exchange” is also on there, good original music, mostly local. “Best place to make WHOOPEE (besides home) is also on the list? Who calls it “WHOOPEE” now?
