Today’s workout was brought to you by “Better Than Ezra”. Remember when you could sign up to Columbia House or BMG & get 12 CDs for 1 cent & then pay full price for 3 CDs and your commitment was done? I think I signed up to both 3 times? That’s how I got the 2 Better Than Ezra CDs .

This really gets me fired up! Make sure you have your cell phone to take a video or photo of someone else in a life or death situation! Don’t even consider helping someone out, just make sure you get the footage? Really people?

After 13 years, I honestly didn’t even know they existed?

The Ian Fletcher Thornley solo album gets a TON of airtime in our house, it’s a great album to kick back & relax to! It’s all acoustic with some banjo & mandolin mixed in! Sorry it wouldn’t let me embed the link?

This made it onto the second Big Wreck album. His solo album is sort of this sound.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “B”, as in Barstool Prophet’s album ‘Crank’. This was released in 1995, & I own it on CD. I remember hearing they were coming to town on tour for their 2nd album. It was in a bar though & I was under age.

Kim’s fine despite the lyrics. This was the first single from their first of 2 albums. I didn’t get the 2nd album & I can’t find it? Yes they’re Canadian.

The Fraser family lost a distant relative yesterday morning. My biological Uncle’s sister-in-law, my cousins’ aunt. She passed away yesterday of cancer in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center, just down the hall that I was initially in on the 2nd floor. I don’t think she was there for therapy physical or occupational, she was able to go to the cafeteria on her own for her meals.

At first the outlook didn’t look promising at all, then she had surgery & things were looking much, much better, then the cancer came back & spread to some vital organs. I didn’t see her much, but it’s sad to see her leave her family & friends. I don’t know if she was in pain, but if she was, at least she’s not in it anymore.

So we add a funeral to our busy weekend. We don’t have to, but as soon as I got off the phone with my mother yesterday, I didn’t even hesitate & thought “I’m attending, no ifs, ands, or buts”.

I saw a photo on Megadeth’s facebook page yesterday. December 5th in Mexico, Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium all on the same bill as chosen by Slipknot who is also playing. I’m not a huge Slipknot fan, but the other 3 together would pay for my ticket to Knot Fest in a second!

Slipknot is a bit to heavy for me though. I have one album from iTunes though from earlier in their career

To see how many goals Montreal will win by or to see Toronto win their first game of 34 wins in an 82 game season. Toronto’s last championship was WHAT!!!! In the ’60s?

REALLY? Another broken leg for Dave Grohl?

I was in the kitchen making a smoothie. Fruit & vegetables into our Vitamix! I turned on some music here’s what I popped on, in order…..

Songs I like, “Sevendust” I have 9 albums, but I’m digging the new one from last week more than I expected. “Kill the Flaw”

Toronto Blue Jays GM had a busy week between Tuesday July 28th to the trade deadline at 4:00pm Eastern Friday July 31st. 5 new proven players in 4 days for an All-Star short stop & 11 minor league prospects. Blue Jays acquired arguably the best Short Stop in the game, one of the top 5 starting pitchers in the game & a speedy Left fielder, as well as 2 relief/bullpen pitchers. I think the GM deserves a break including a long nap

Lamb of God album review

Leave him alone, I say. It was 21 years ago in April. Photos or no photos, it doesn’t really matter, he’s not going to “comeback” from the dead?

Bruce Springsteen surprise appearance with U2

I’ve heard their name thrown around but never heard any of the music from “Huntress”. Gut reaction, no thanks.

10 songs about going crazy

How was any song from this album not included? He wrote it in as a patient in an insane asylum?

25 most destructive Guns n’ Roses moments. Even they can’t mess up a good song by Paul McCartney & Wings!

Limp Bizkit can though.

^^Even couldn’t play the entire Limp Bizkit version! Hahahahaha!

Iron Maiden out September 4th on iTunes, no songs to preview

Trivium out October 2nd, not so sure about this song yet?

2 big albums for me, but I’m going to wait to hear more of both before I even think of pre-ordering them. Iron Maiden tune sounds pretty good though.

Zoolander 2 teaser

10 best Foo Fighters

Nope, it’s subjective & being a HUGE fan it’s a few B-Sides for me.

I’ve managed to find 60 B-Sides, quite a few are cover songs. I have about 40 on single CDs. You know with a song from an album & 2 others that didn’t make the cut to be on the album.

I’m getting really tired of ‘Slayer’. I think I’ll take a year or two off from them?

Top 25 punk albums of all time

I’m not a huge punk fan. I’ve got “Bad Religion” & “The Smalls”, I like them, for me I’d have to go with the watered down “Green Day” ‘Dookie’ album

Story behind the artwork for ‘Nirvana’s’ Nevermind album!

More ‘Led Zeppelin shows? Probably not.

I was expecting a very good album from Mark Tremonti, but his metal/rock album “Cauterize” blew me away.

Disturbed is loud wire’s most anticipated album of the month for August. For me & others that would be setting the bar pretty low. I’m not in my early 20s anymore.

I don’t do album reviews, I recommend stuff I like. Check out the Finger Eleven album “Five Crooked Lines” the last 2 albums were disappointing for me, this feels like more of a return to their first 3 albums just more grown up. The single “Wolves & Doors” for me, is one of the weakest tracks on the album.

New “Dream Theater” album? I didn’t even know! So many surprises this year! It’s coming next year but even that’s just good news!

^^I was hooked on this album when it came out. Everyday at work, I’d listen to it while running my printing press, iPod on in my pocket!

Worst to first Green Day album. I can’t stand “American Idiot”. I’m not a hard core Green Day fan though.

^^Just not my thing.

Pretty quiet weekend here. Some friend came down from Edmonton. There were some Chicken wings that needed to be eaten & some beer that needed to be dealt with. Last night a smoked/BBQ supper out doors wine, beer & an adorable kiddo that has warmed up to “Unkie” Chris. She also put on a dance show after our meal. She’d hit the floor & start kicking her legs then I’d be all “SHE’S BREAK DANCING!”! If she was going to pull off the worm, then she’d blow my mind along with many others!

Day off, couch is looking good to watch some Blue Jay baseball after yesterday’s terrible umpire at home plate! Really, first inning warning to both dugouts after Kansas City throws at the 2nd Blue Jay hitter followed by another hit batter later on, then 2 balls thrown at Josh Donaldson’s head, both in different at bats. Benches cleared, no fight broke out but 2 Blue Jay coach’s & a rookie Blue Jay pitcher tossed from the game after the Blue Jays did nothing in retaliation.

Songs I like. “Muse” Went to a band rehearsal at Todd Bryanton’s, went to the basement to set up my gear & he had “Muse’s” 2nd studio album playing. “Is this Radiohead?” I asked. “It’s Muse” he replied then I went out the next day & bought the CD I heard. Now I have all of the Muse albums on CD other than their recent release “Drones” which I was quite disappointed with, I was expecting more from it.

If Matthew Bellamy wasn’t such a great musician & singer, it may have been a 1 listen & delete album for me?

I really would like this to be conversation between myself & the readers. I’m telling you my story of the music I like, now you tell me what you’re into? I’m not about to judge anyone on their listening choices, that would be weird coming from a music fan. Please, let’s make this interactive, in a good way? If I haven’t checked it out or mentioned it on here, teach me please?

I’m going to watch “Blue Jays in 0:30 minutes”. I MUCH prefer watching a 3 hour pitching dual where the score is 1 or 2-0. For me it has to be really close & low scoring or a total blow-out for one team! They lost……………………..again.

iTunes Match, “….thanks, that was fun….” now were leaving you in the dust like MANY others are! Home Sharing for us now!

Halestorm article/interview

“Slash can say whatever he wants about Axl Rose”. Sure he was in arguably one of the biggest bands around at the time.

If you like Nickleback there’s a VERY GOOD chance you’ll enjoy “Theory of a Deadman”, if you haven’t heard them.

Worst to first Tool albums. My favourite song without a pile of language below

Not much going on in the music side of things today. Our 12.5lbs dog is driving me crazy today. It’s been cloudy all day, it’s raining & he heard thunder earlier. In other words he’s been panting & shaking like a leaf for most of the day. Kim deals with him throughout the night, then I deal with him all day. He’s been this way for quite a few weeks now? I think he’s getting old fast. He mostly lays at the door, scratching it & whining.

We had a noise complaint about him early on last year when we both went out one day & forgot to leave the TV on for Brewster. Since then we haven’t left him alone. We take him to my parents house, Mitch & Rachel’s place, or Sherry & James’ house. We pretty much have to get a sitter for our dog? He seems to be getting worse with age, he wasn’t like this 3 weeks ago? He’s on anxiety pills now, they aren’t helping & he’s been on them long enough to have them in his system.

Songs I like. “Megadeth”

Back to our regular scheduled programming.

Apple/iTunes are just down right weird in a bad way. Apparently it is illegal to burn a CD, DVD, or a blu-ray for someone else because Apple sees where/what the users information is or what account it was purchased from. WHY? Now I cant burn a mix playlist for someone that is not added to my account? Keep going Apple, here’s some more rope. It was OK to make copies of purchased cassettes or CDs but “Oh, NO you can’t do that now!!!!” says big brother!? I also can’t just share my legally paid for albums purchased from iTunes backed up on my external hard drive & share my iTunes files with friends? Now we can’t share anything we purchase on iTunes? I paid for it, I own it, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Now that I can’t, do I go back to purchasing CDs and rip them to iTunes, lend it to my friends & then throw it out, making a larger carbon imprint on the environment? Apple, did you bring the circus to town too!? Or are you intentionally making a comedy of errors?

Kurt Cobain conspiracy movie “Soaked in Bleach” has a release date in the UK. I tried to find it on youtube but came up empty. I keep seeing an invite to a random youtube page that I’m a little leary about?

New Finger Eleven comes out Friday, July 31st. New song inside link!

Bill Cosby’s deposition on how he targeted young women.

^^This is a hard lump to swallow. I don’t want to believe it, but it’s true. I don’t want to report on this topic anymore. Not trying to be disrespectful to the victims in any way, I just don’t want to talk about it. Sorry. I’m not turning a blind eye to it, it’s just a little too much for me & much more to the victims.

Yes, pun intended. I’m a DQ royal treat as a friend or family member!

I called Kim at work yesterday since I made my lunch of cheese, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, & hot sauce in a wrap. I told her we were almost out of grated cheese, then we chatted about other stuff. I called her back immediately to remind her that the phone call was “All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken. All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken, etc.” I’m a delight to live with! See Rachel Gianoli you’re not the only one when we get paired up for Crokinole. Rachel’s “All about dat post, ’bout dat post, no 20. etc.”

OK Apple, iTunes that’s enough! I wanted something done my way, so I did it. All of our iTunes files are perfect on our 2 computers, my iPod, Kim’s iPhone, & iPad. The problem is now Apple’s or iTunes problem. I bought the recently released “Silverball” album by Barenaked Ladies on iTunes, it works fine on every device but our TV/home stereo. Our TV doesn’t even recognize that we own it? I go into Barenaked Ladies & I see 9 or 10 albums in alphabetical order, at the end I see “Rock Spectacle” then “Stunt”? “Silverball” should be in between those albums. SURPRISE! It’s not there! I pre-ordered “Highly Suspect’s” debut album & got 5 songs with my pre-order. 3/5 songs I received are grayed out on the TV. I can get 2 of them to work on our TV. Are those the only songs that will work on our TV when the album is released on Friday? All of this ballyhoo started with the launch of Apple Music Radio on Tuesday, June 30th which I hear is also not so great. There is no way I’ll pay $9.99/month for a crappy radio station subscription. We have a hot deal for Serious XM at the moment for under $10/month we get it. When that sale is done, so is our subscription to Serious XM. I’ve done all I can on my end, now Apple has the ball in their court.

Why is everything a competition now? 10 best Pearl Jam songs. I can’t even pick my top 4 ALBUMS, forget 1 best song?

Does this mean “Staind” is done?

I don’t know much about “Staind” they’re not a group I’m invested in.

Yes, I complain about the heat but this is way over the edge! LOTS OF LANGUAGE!!!! IF THEY WERE TO CENSOR THE LANGUAGE, THIS WOULD BE 90% BEEEEEEEEP!

^^Do I need to have a chat with Moses?

“Gorillaz” are coming back, Damon Albarn is back & it sounds as though “Blur” is or has made a “come back”? I wasn’t a fan in the ’90s & I likely won’t be a fan now. All of these include Damon Albarn on lead vocals.

More & more artists coming out against streaming music sites, name drop, Neil Young!

“Suicide Squad” & “Batman vs. Superman” cast pose for photo together

Iron Maiden beer!!!!????? AWESOME!!!!! Guess what I fell asleep to, listening to my iPod last night?

Remember the interview with Hanson & their beer “Mmm Hop”

^^You’re welcome!!! That just happened & now it’s stuck in your head!

There are way to many sub genres for metal music. Power, speed, thrash, black, death, nu, etc. For me I hate putting sub genres labels on music. There’s good or bad music. Metal, Rock, Country, Rap, R & B, & Pop. It’s either good or bad to each individual & will differ to each person. Example “Slayer” I need & have one album. After 90% of that album has played, for me personally it get’s old & repetitive. I have what is likely their most successful album “Reign in Blood” not “Raining Men”.

Queens of the Stone Age albums ranked worst to first. I’d have to agree with the worst choice. Their favourite I would have to make my 2nd favourite my favourite would be “…like Clockwork” Dave Grohl played drums in the studio on both of those albums.

I love this album! Elton John played on it as well! Very slow melodic piano only songs to this song (about as heavy as they get on this album).

There is currently no way I can get on the bandwagon for “Gorillaz”

If a fan is acting like a moron & ruining the concert for others and security isn’t taking care of the problem, I think if whoever is onstage sees the fan doing it, has every right to kick them out.

Why is Myles Kennedy or Alter Bridge not a household name. Myles has an incredible voice! You don’t need to like him but you should at least know who he is.

Backing vocals on this tune below….

His former band that opened for The Watchmen & headliner Big Wreck back in the day, ’99 or 2000?

Alter Bridge’s first single off of their 1st of 4 albums. Song was all over the radio in Regina radio in 2004.

In his free time, when he’s not singing for Slash or Alter Bridge, he’s been working on a solo album the last 4 years! Alter Bridge’s 1st single off of their 4th album. Myles is currently on tour with Slash.

I’m not a fan of “3 Doors Down”, but this is right on point. Treat other concertgoers with respect. I broke my nose at a festival in ’99 in a mosh pit. My nose was pouring blood. Everybody immediately cleared a path for me to security at the front of the stage/guard rail where I was told where the First Aid tent was. I was missing part of Big Wreck’s set! That’s proper concert etiquette. LANGUAGE BELOW!!!!

OK, Jack White stated late last year that he “can’t afford to tour”, 50 Cent filled for bankruptcy on Monday, yet nobody has changed a thing……WHY? Jack White sold the most vinyl albums in North America last year out of 8 million sold in total! I don’t know the price of a vinyl album? I think I’ve bought one in my 35+ years. I blame digital music at a low if not free price. I love the idea of iTunes. I was sitting on my butt in front of the computer last night, & I thought “Hey, I should check out this album on iTunes”. I did, I liked it & bought it after a preview. Within 3 minutes I thought of an album previewed it & bought it for $6.99. Didn’t leave the house to go to a store & buy it over the course of 45 minutes. My only problem with digital music is, where does the money go?

Remember the ’80s & ’90s? Why did those groups rise to fame & live in mansions while today’s artists are just getting by & don’t get to have that type of lifestyle? I want to own the music I listen to & I do own it through iTunes. There needs to be a change in the dispersal of the money. Apple could survive on $0.50/download, artists management/label could survive on $1.00/download & the artist could get $0-$9/ per album download or $0-$1.00 per song download. But then people would have to pay for music “OH, SNAP!! I CANT AFFORD THAT!”! Really I bought CDs for the average price of $25.00 per CD. Roughly 600 of them. Paying for a product won’t kill you, you just may have to slow done on your music purchases?

I took a TON of stuff for granted, walking, living in a first world country, having clean water & food at my disposal. Most of us never think about those things, me included. It’s just a case of “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” I’m not complaining, I’m alive, I live with my best friend and a cute dog, I have 4 walls around me & clean water. As long as I have those essentials, I can’t complain!

Songs I like. “Lionize” only the album “Jetpack Soundtrack”. Last I checked they had 4 albums on iTunes. They all sounded quite different to me, but this is “the one……” I bought.


I like both of these movie series except “Star Wars Episode 1” with WAY too much Jar Jar Binks!

I listened to this album 3 times last night, I couldn’t sleep very well? It’s not a beat you over the head death metal album. It’s a metal album you’d probably hear playing at comic convention. Imagine if the people from the star trek enterprise recorded a metal album? Like meringue, a light & fluffy metal album with songs that will stay in your head. Only 8 songs on it, but all around 5:00 minutes & one song at 10:00-13:00 minutes. This guitar riff sticks in my head.

Ozzy can be right out of his mind. LANGUAGE!!!!

Led Zeppelin responds to “Stairway to Heaven” lawsuit.

Clutch could be completely different. Before I read this “….what I really wanted to know was……..” when does the next album come out?

Ozzy & Sharon feel like Metallica’s parents

I’ve seen Ozzy live as well as Tool, Foo Fighters, Barenaked Ladies, Big Wreck, The Watchmen, The Mayfield Four, etc. Ozzy & The Mayfield Four once, the rest minimum 4 times. Live is quite often better than the recording, as usual for me!

Neil Young’s about to release a new album June 29th, & tour with Willie Nelson’s son. Notice the headline to the article just says “Willie Nelson’s Son”, not the sons first name? There’s a shadow I’d want to get out of. Jakob Dylan of “The Wallflowers” is Bob Dylan’s son, & this person is this persons child, etc.

Songs I like. “Headstones”

The albums are nowhere near as good as seeing them live. It’s really night & day to compare the 2. Yes the singer is High Dillon from the TV series “Flashpoint”.

Scott Stapp was a victim of “Creed’s” success? “Creed” members or fans didn’t force drugs & alcohol into his system, from what I know? Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips & Brian Marshall aren’t addicted to drugs or alcohol. Kurt Cobain wasn’t a victim of “Nirvana’s” success. Pat Smear, Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic weren’t victims of “Nirvana’s” success. Heroin & a shotgun are the reason for Kurt Cobain’s death. The other band members are victims of what the 2 frontman did.

And this is the first of 2 reasons I don’t listen to “black” metal.

They burn churches over sea & it’s not music I enjoy.

Tool pokes fun at U2. Great! How many albums has U2 released since 2006 & are far more successful than Tool? Tool hasn’t released anything since 2006. I like Tool & U2.

OK yes U2 got a lot of heat for this album. It’s the 3rd U2 album since 2005 though. U2 & Tool are 2 totally different bands. It’s like comparing apples to oranges, not one is better than the other, it’s subjective.

Big Wreck live!

Ooh there’s an argument brewing

“Nirvana” albums ranked worst to first
Still one of my favourite songs since Rob, Dave, Rydell & I played it in university.

Trent Reznor (Nine inch Nails) puts his house on the market for a high price

Kris Kristofferson’s somber version of Tom Petty’s “Wont Back Down”

Walk off the Earth shared this video on facebook.

The song I showed yesterday by “The Pretty Reckless” was off of the 1 st album. This from their 2nd/recent album WARNING! LANGUAGE!!!!

Just watched this. I record it & watch the show the next day.

Director took 8 years to create the Kurt Cobain bio pic “Montage of Heck”

System of a Down show in Armenia

So he’s kicked the drugs but I heard in an interview he’s still drinking?

I hope this sequel is better than the 1st “Mall Cop”. I wasn’t completely sold on the first one.


Animated Spiderman movie in the works

Guitarist refuses Megadeth offer

Walk off the Earth’s new song on the new album

NFL bad lip reading

Two “Faith No More” albums to get ready for rarities packed reissues. Likely their most famous song below?

“Unstable evening with I Mother Earth”?

Who on earth is ‘Passion Pit’?

I think my dad has a Special Edition of this on vinyl still in the plastic wrap.

“Anthrax” drummer will miss the first few shows of the spring tour

This album has been certified as gold!

Doesn’t everyone turn up the vehicle radio & sing along to their favourite song & think you’ve done a fantastic rendition of the song? I do & my voice is terrible. Kim’s is much better!

If I want to watch a hockey game I watch European hockey. If I want to watch a “fight”, I watch the NHL. If I want to watch a real fight I watch boxing never UFC/MMA. If I want to watch football, I watch the CFL. NFL, NO! If I want to cry & watch baseball I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible. No basketball ever, not really my thing. Blue Jays baseball & CFL football only. As much as possible! 162 baseball games or 162 CFL games roughly. Kim hates the summer because of this.

What do Kevin Pillar & Ryan Goins have to do to be on the field everyday for the Blue Jays? I think it’s a good problem to have! I’d hate to be the field manager or the General manager.

Too bad they will be on the bench when Mike Saunders, left fielder acquired in the off season, is healthy & game ready. Pillar will be the 4th outfielder on the bench and Goins will be a utility player on the bench, which is really sad to say.

Barry Bonds & A-Roid are the last 2 baseball cheaters I’d want in my corner.. The home run record in a season is 61 set by Roger Maris. A-Roid, Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, Jose Canseco, etc. should just keep to themselves, they used steroids, got caught & I don’t want to hear a whisper from them, EVER!!! Roger Clemens (pitcher) was caught as well & almost went to jail. The late ’90s & early 2000s baseball players should be ashamed & banned from baseball for infinity. I hope the brand new MLB commissioner takes the steroid issue into consideration as these former players are now about to be on the ballot for the Hall of Fame.

Songs I like. “Down” WARNING, METAL!!! I have 2 album but only listen to the first album.

10 best booze brands by metal groups

Record store day in the USA April 18th

I wish Canada had a record store day, alas……no.

Oh, record store day how you mock me.

Tom DeLonge already has a solo single out? Didn’t he just leave “Blink-182” last week?

Oh, I like my Halestorm

I’m not a fan of Primus but they are VERY talented. Les Claypool is a different but good type of bass player like Geddy Lee from Rush. Both have signature voices, and both are either a love or hate voice!

There was a girl on American Idol that went by the name “Shi” when “Shi” when she didn’t make the cut last week I yelled “SHI’S GONE! WHO SHE WHAT SHI WHO”

^^That’s what I’ll workout to today. Thank you Loud Wire!

I don’t get this? I couldn’t sing properly after 1 drink, sure afterwards I’d get hammered once I was home or have a few drinks. Never before or during our time on stage, water only. If we were opening I’d have 2 beer & hangout by the sound board to watch the other bands. I just drank water during our set & before our set. Afterwards it was a whole different ball game! All the power to those who can & want to do that though. I could never do that while playing a show & never really wanted to.

I’m just ready for the new Muse & Halestorm albums!!

Monty Python after 40 years!!!

If you like “Queens of the Stone Age” you may enjoy “Aeges”

So June or March? My iTunes is not working today.

Slipknot news. Mick Thompson was stabbed.

Trailer for “Montage of Heck” the Kurt Cobain documentary.

Also coming out this year is “Into Eternity” & “Third Ion” both from Regina.

In other news, now is the time to start whining about the heat! It has to be over +10C outside for a certain number of days to turn on the AC. Great, I don’t live outside I live in our condo. Even with all of the blinds closed yesterday it hit +26C in here yesterday. Yeah that’s the temperature I want to work out in…………………………NOT! I don’t get along with the sun very well, +24C is as high as I can stand after that I just peal off clothes until I’m naked if I’m warm. I don’t care how warm it’s been outside for how many days? I DON’T LIVE OUTSIDE!!! Maybe I should, it’s cooler outside than it is inside.

A-Roid’s back & I don’t care. When the Yankees play the Blue Jays, I’ll be booing the mention of his name. Lied, got caught in a random steroid test, then lied some more, & suffered a year long suspension from baseball in 2014. I’ve heard he’s not really a good fit in any locker room?

Songs I like. “Cat Stevens”

Original (Cat’s in the Cradle ) is originally by Harry Chapin I believe.
