I hit my exercise goal today, but only did 2 types of exercise. I figured I should ease into it, instead of wrecking myself for another week on the couch. I was fine last week, I just felt guilty & bored as my exercise mat sat there & judged me “from a distance”. Why do I know that song? Right, mom likes it! Bad mommy, NO!

When did the Saskatchewan Roughriders become an overpriced professional sporting event? I’ve been going to the only professional football game in the province since my grandfather could hold me on his lap. For the 2017 season we’ll have a new stadium, my parents & I get season tickets, 1 exhibition game, 9 regular season games, & you pay for a home playoff game which carries over if there’s not one. Right now we are paying $7 extra for each game. Even if we move to a worse spot, we pay more than we do now. New stadium so of course prices would go up. If they’re going up that much they’d better win more than 3 games in 2017! I can watch them lose at home on TV. One season & there’s a 98% chance I’ll stay at home, unless it’s an incredible season or new stadium. A roughly $30/game extra.

The 4 BIG singles from each 4 “Alter Bridge” albums available now as they finish recording their 5th studio album. 4 songs in order.

So this first one was just the popular one on iTunes. The single is the next one below it.

Myles Kennedy (singer) sang backing vocals on this Big Wreck song. Unfortunately he’s buried in the mix?

Myles Kennedy was the lead singer in a group called “The Mayfield Four”. I saw them many, many years ago opening for “Big Wreck”, with “The Watchmen” sandwiched in between. Great show!

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver censored LANGUAGE!!!!

16 years ago “Papa Roach” released the album “Infest”. I didn’t like the song when it came out. The rest of our band in University loved it, I refused to sing it! I think I was telling a story or something, totally unrelated from the subject of the song?

A concert to battle M.S. With Ken Tizzard & Daniel Greaves both solo I assume, from The Watchmen

I liked some of the ‘Destiny’s Child’ stuff, never bought any of it. Beyonce’s solo stuff I don’t enjoy.

Do you need some Opeth swag?

http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/opeth-the-perpetual-journey

Prince passed away last week. The news is still everywhere, & I think the world is doing individual tributes to him. Rightfully so, I love Prince! I’ve got 12 of his albums, which really isn’t much from his catalogue. Here’s Corey Taylor, singer of Slipknot & Stone Sour, performing “Purple Rain”

I was wishing the Prince news would eliminate the Guns n’ Roses news?

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The countdown is on “Tremonti” the 3rd studio album “Dust” will be released on Friday!! Foo Fighters are on hiatus or as they call it “I hate us”. Big Wreck is writing from what I know? I have to fill my time until they both release something? “Tremonti” & “Alter Bridge” this year would be fantastic with all of the other stuff I have!

As for the www.wikipedia.com mention yesterday. The site no longer says “Anyone can edit”! It’s good for anything other than musicians info. Which sadly is what I mainly use it for 3 or 4 times a year.

A review of the upcoming Tremonti album ‘Dust’ & other info on the album.

Beyonce’s album was exclusively on TIDAL but not anymore. Makes sense, not everyone is on TIDAL, I still purchase music from iTunes or maybe a CD or 2 a year?

SUPERBOWL

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “B”, as in Big Wreck

I avoid the Superbowl at all costs. The game is usually a side show to the commercials we don’t get through cable in Canada. Most people watch it since it’s the championship game for the NFL & for the half-time show. I’m all for the CFL but even it has been boring this year & last year. The NFL has never impressed me & the Superbowl is right around my birthday at the end of January. The half time show I’ll watch the next day on www.youtube.com

There’s already people throwing up red flags about Bruno Mars being the half time entertainment. Fair is fair, he’s not everyone’s preferred act. Remember, you can’t please everyone all of the time!

I ask you this. What has been among the top songs of this year? Oh, “Uptown Funk” would be one of them, along with a few others. So what would you like to have as the half time entertainment? Bruno Mars is hot at the moment & will increase the number of viewers which is what the Superbowl is all about, making money for the league. Off of the top of my head you have these 3 options & maybe a few more I can’t think of at the moment….

Can anyone think of another song off of Mark Ronson’s album other than “Uptown Funk” feat. Bruno Mars? I can’t, I didn’t buy the album, I bought the song & attached it to a Bruno Mars album I already own.

What sparked this conversation? This….

I’m not the be all & end all of music. There’s quite a bit of music I know nothing about but I like discovering stuff I’ve never heard. Please teach me?

I went to Moose Jaw today around 10:30. My mother was getting fruit there off of a truck from B.C. I think it was? Brewster & I went for a “car ride”. Nobody can say either of those words around him unless he is going for a “car ride”. He gets really excited & instantly worries he’ll be left behind, as well as frantically looking for his “leash”, another word we can’t say around him. Moose Jaw is about 40-45 minutes away. After 10 minutes roughly, he falls asleep on my lap until the vehicle stops!

Still one of my favourite songs to play or listen to!!

Royal Blood performance. I think I shared this yesterday?

Our Lady Peace. I’m all about their 1st 4 albums. I do own a Greatest Hits & 3 or 4 other albums though.

This is from their 2nd album “Clumsy” which was their breakthrough album

The Agonist shared it, so here it is. They were in Regina last week on Thursday at The Exchange, I really wanted to go but I don’t go out much on weeknights & Kim doesn’t like metal.

This Muse album will be the biggest disappointment this year for me. I had really high hopes for this album. Their 2nd , 3rd, & 4th album were great studio albums as well as their 5th/Live at Wembley CD/DVD (H.A.A.R.P.) LANGUAGE!!!!!

This is from their 4th album

Here’s my favourite venue for live music in Regina! Fun to play at The Exchange & a great place to take in a show.

New Ken Tizzard album for $3.99 on iTunes. You’ll know him as the bassist for The Watchmen & Thornley.

I have never heard a bad cover of this song. The 2nd link is my favourite version though!

Songs I like. “Red Hot Chili Peppers” only 2 albums that float my boat.

EVERYONE’S FAVOURITE DAY

I’ll let the sunshine in………………….while I’m in front of the A/C vent………………NAKED!

Facebook page is just a link to the blog. Email or other blog notifications are just to let you know there’s a new post from me.

I keep checking out the group “Highly Suspect”. Each time I listen to them, I’m just not sure if I like them or not?

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/mister-asylum/id975018114

$7.99 yet I’m on the fence a bit still. 5 songs on the album already for preview also immediate download once pre-ordered. I’m leaning towards getting it but I’m just not sure. I do like “The Pretty Reckless” that Halestorm recommended, another female fronted hard rock band.

More & more females are fronting popular bands. I think that’s a good thing probably a larger vocal range.

‘Top Gun’ sequel? I’m already having Kenny Loggins’ flashbacks. They’ve made a ‘Footloose’ reboot, is there a sequel in the works. Does it fell like the early ’80s to anyone else?

More LGBT news. If everyone is happy with their lifestyle, I’m fine with however they’re living their lives. I glad that the USA approved same sex marriage. I’ll never understand what the issue was in the first place?

Did part of my exercises. 40 push ups & some yoga. I didn’t feel like doing any exercise today. Even when I feel tired I have to do something exercise wise. I have a workout playlist with 55 songs on it, I hit shuffle & I’m off to the races!

Foo Fighters just keep going. Broken leg won’t stop Dave Grohl for long!

Songs I like. “Ken Tizzard” former bassist of ‘The Watchmen” & ‘Thornley” & probably among the most under rated musicians out there!

KEN TIZZARD

Monday, May 12th 2014

 

Here it is 6:40am. I’m up & ready for the day. Yep, had breakfast too.

 

Too funny. Misheard lyrics! http://ultimateclassicrock.com/ozzy-osbourne-hard-to-understand/?utm_source=zergnet.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=zergnet_168731

 

I got it! The new Chromeo album! I had it pre-ordered on iTunes! The pre-order gave me 5/12 songs off of the album. Wake up, come in here and click on the iClouds and BOOM album. The most sugarry pop/dance album I’ve ever heard, but my oh my is it good!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYDg27tqXkI

 

Not really surprised, since I’ve never been a fan.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/05/the-black-keys-uninspiring-performance-on-saturday-night-live/

 

Ken Tizzard, yep the bass player for The Watchmen, then for Thornley, and now he’s doing solo stuff. I haven’t seen him live since before I had cancer. He was doing solo bass while singing and it was very good. IT WORKED! It was very original and it sounded good! I don’t think anyone would think of doing that. Next time he passes through Regina, I’ll be there! I only own 2/6 CDs. They’re really good! I don’t want to buy his stuff on iTunes, I’ll buy a it on CD and support him. The two CDs I have are laid back and really good. Here’s a few songs I own!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8SmcvepkhE released in 2006. I went to that show!

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQC_z3vJ0ec released in 2008. When I was in the hospital.

 

It’s 8:30am now. I’m thiking I should have crawled back in to bed and gone to sleep instead of getting up when I had to pee. I think I’m getting old!
