What a way to start a blog? The legendary artist Prince has passed at the age of 57. Yes, I’m a fan of his!

This week is backwards for me than normal weeks. I still get up early, but I don’t do my exercises? It still feels wrong to me. I get up & have my fruit & vegetable juice, a coffee, & fill my water bottle. Then I sit on the couch & watch what’s left of the previous nights baseball game. Blue Jays in :30 does nothing for me. I much prefer to watch the entire game.

I still have the TV show ‘Criminal Minds:Beyond Borders’ left to watch from last night, I’m not sure if I want to watch that show? We had 3 or 4 different Law & Order shows, 3 CSI shows, a failed Criminal Minds spinoff & now they’re trying another one. I’ve been a fan of the original Criminal Minds since the first episode. I don’t think I need to watch a spinoff?

Did everyone hear the big news in Saskatchewan today? Garth Brooks is coming to Saskatoon! I’ve seen an advertisement on Facebook at least 5 times today.

“Here we go you guys! You’ve heard the rumours for years, you’ve waited for DECADES and now… GARTH BROOKS IS COMING BACK TO SASKATOON!

Trisha Yearwood will be performing as well! Saturday, June 11th at Sasktel Centre! Tickets on sale Friday, April 29th at 10:00am. Also, we’ve got a TON of tickets to give away. So keep it locked on The Bull for your chance to win.

Actually… now that we think about it. Want our FIRST PAIR OF TICKETS? Like and Share this photo! We’ll pick a winner Friday morning!”

Not my thing at all, but I hear he puts on a very good show!

AC/DC news. Zakk Wylde formerly of Ozzy Osbourne shares his thoughts.

Guitar lesson from Megadeth?

The super group, Gone is Gone, made from members of Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, & At the Drive In. Have released a new song. I’m still not sure if I’m sold on them? Mastodon & I don’t mix very well & I’ve never heard of ‘At The Drive In’. Oddly enough the metal fans I talk to adore Mastodon?? I must be missing something?

Kongos shared it again………

Update from Alter Bridge in the studio

“Alter Bridge update – All 14 songs are done with main guitar. Now comes acoustic guitar and solos. Mark has 11 solos to track.”

Alter Bridge want to release this 5th studio album in June before they begin their tour in early July! Now that’s ambitious! They’re hosting a listening party for fans in the Orlando, Florida area on June 6th I think they said! That’s really fast, promising all of these dates before the album is even finished? WOW!

Tool is sharing a few songs at the moment….

This has become a very ugly world we live in!! If you’re anywhere near Saskatoon please help find these kids!

This is as much as I know about Kesha. I hope this guy gets what’s coming to him? I don’t think she’d fabricate a story to take it this far? The song is just a reference point, I really know nothing about her.

I love this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmm, this reminds me of something else years before?????????? The writers must have had writers block?

Perhaps the Bruno Mars Pandora radio skit?

Just a TON of Prince news today. “I can’t believe the news this year…” there must be a phenomenal super group of passed musicians from just this year. Not good at all. “Thursday bloody Thursday”

1 DOWN 161 TO GO

I fell asleep to “David Bowie” a Greatest Hits compilation.

For exercise I first put on “Better Than Ezra” the 13 song album “Friction Baby” when that played through I put on “The Birds of Satan” their only/self titled album (Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins’ side project, where he plays the drum & sings).

^^I bought the CD in high school in the $0.01 deal from BMG or Columbia House. I think I went back & forth 4 times on those deals after I had full filled my 3 purchases of $28.99? I remember subscribing to both twice.

1000 crunches is the new daily exercise goal with a 2 other exercises afterwards! If Kevin Hart can do it, there’s no reason I can’t, I’ve got the time

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

A great start to what will be a good story “win or lose” for the Toronto Blue Jays. 8 complete innings pitched by 24 years young pitcher Marcus Stroman followed by the 9th inning closer 21 years young Roberto Osuna. 2 run home run by short stop Troy Tulowitzki in a 5-3 win for the Toronto Blue Jays. Only 161 games to go until the last 2 at the beginning of October. Plus the playoffs if that happens? Water & grapes aren’t necessarily baseball food, it just feels wrong? Troy Tulowitzki first home run of all players in 2016.

I’m helping Kim out with the cleaning here more & more. I’ve been assigned bathroom duty. (Hahaha, I said doodie). I finished one washroom and moving on to the second bathroom on Sunday, all the while singing & rocking/headbanging to “…done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next one. Done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next…”. All of this was before my overflowing joy after a Blue Jay win!

I’ll let you know right now it’s summer which means I won’t be as consistent with my blogging. Wednesday’s blog may be a little bit later due to an afternoon baseball game. Don’t people work on Wednesdays? Thursday you might get a 4 day exercise total with a dash of music news? Friday, & Saturday, I’m not even going to pretend there’s a computer in here. I’ll catch you on Sunday with what could be a looong weekend update after the 3rd baseball game in Toronto that day against the visiting Boston Red Sox.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine checks out the School of Rock.

I know nothing about her or her music but it’s good to hear she’s taking a stand by saying ‘Hey, this isn’t right’ basically.

10 best metal albums of 1996

http://loudwire.com/best-metal-albums-1996/

I don’t consider “Tool” a metal group but that was a fantastic album!!!

I’m not much of a Jonny Depp fan in any roll. I guess he’s a big enough star that he can afford to do what he likes, so he’s giving music a shot………………….wait…………………wasn’t he complaining about actors crossing over into music & vice versa? Yes, yes he was, but that was months ago nobody will remember that.

I’m not much of a country music fan, but my wife is, so I hear it on occasion. Fine by me, I tune it out. We have this recorded & haven’t had time to watch it yet.

Royal Blood, a pleasant surprise for most rock fans!!!! “Wait,….I’m going to see Foo Fighters with my dad? Royal Blood is the opener? AWESOME! What else is going to happen, my jaw won’t go further down? Road trip to Calgary to see my aunts & uncles with Kim, & a boat load of cheaply priced liquor!?!” That was an awesome but quick trip last summer!

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS DO THIS YEAR? I DONT KNOW?

I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

I exercised to”Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

Yes, there are far too many artists that passed to early. For some it was they didn’t realize the cocaine, heroin, acid, meth, etc. They didn’t realize what they were putting into their bodies could kill them.

I’d like to know what her motive is to lie under oath? There likely isn’t one at the moment. I don’t know what the upside is of sending a producer to jail? I’d call it a closed case once he’s in jail.

Pentatonix shared it…….

I think the internet died today? Not much out there today.

SINGLES & B-SIDES

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” then a ’70s rock compilation.

I woke up to that same ’70s compilation

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

If you have the album you don’t need a single from iTunes. A single on iTunes is just that, no B-Sides included? I’ve got 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides Most of them were bought on CD. A single & two B-Sides on most of them. Singles on iTunes are nothing more than a cash grab for Apple, who’s stock is on a steady decline from what I hear? I don’t need or want singles on iTunes, I purchase full albums that have the singles on them, so I don’t purchase them. If Apple wants to make money, sell a single along with the 2 or 3 B-Sides! I was never into marketing, but I think that would work? Here are some B-Sides you’ll never hear at the moment if you get your music from iTunes!

Great idea! Here’s the catch though…….they’re expensive & BOOM there goes a tax hike, unless you can find them in a “Walmart” bargain bin. Politicians will have a tough time forcing this idea on the public? Could happen though.
