Did I mention it’s SHARK WEEK on the Discovery channel???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canada Day is July 1st. Friday, no blog, you’re on your own. So far no big plans or adventures for Kim & I. Looks like a very mellow summer at home this year.

I used Kim’s exercise mat today, that she said I could use! Much better than the large puzzle pieces I’ve been using. I use 3 of them & by the end I have 1. They don’t stay together very well.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

More John Oliver LANGUAGE!!!! Brexit

I think it’s odd that we still have to have a Gay Pride Parade? I guess it’s because there are so many people against those who are different. Well it’s 2016 & still some people can’t figure out why humans are different than them?

Rare Alter Bridge song.

Why is it that music artists don’t put there B-Sides on iTunes or streaming sites? Release the single from the album I already own & have one or two B-Sides that are only available with the purchase or streaming of the single. Do I have to go downtown to HMV, in the Cornwall Center, to purchase singles with B-Sides again? There’s a reason I stopped going downtown. Because downtown Regina wasn’t thought about long enough before they built it. It’s poorly laid out & not the easiest part of Regina to drive in, too many unnecessary one way streets.

Muse live at the Glastonbury festival. Video inside the link! This is why seeing Muse live is on my bucket list!!!!!!!!

Alice Cooper’s Greatest Hits over lunch

I have his greatest hits, “From the Inside” written while he was actually in an insane asylum. I also somehow got the album “Trash”?

2 years ago I had some albums that I didn’t purchase that showed up in my iTunes? “Trash”, Black Label Society’s “Order of the Black”, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours”, New Kids on the Block “Hangin’ Tough” & “Greatest Hits”, all of the Ozzy Osbourne albums, & maybe another one I’m forgetting? Weird but they’re there?

I think everyone should fear Trump. He’s not even a President, yet he’s a Dictator & terrorist already! When Hillary wins he’ll have to admit he’s a “Loser”

Friday afternoon Kim went to Saskatoon with a bunch of friends to see Garth Brooks, the second show of his that night. I guess he didn’t go on stage until 11:30 pm? Kim didn’t get home until 4:15 am, Brewster & I were out cold. I spent Friday evening watching the 3rd Hobbit movie in my dad’s theater room on blu-ray. Dad’s read all 4 of the Lord of the Rings books, I couldn’t get through them, too much detail in them for me. Dad drove Brewster & I home at 11:30 pm I think it was. I watched a bit of TV & went to bed shortly after 1:00 am. Kim didn’t want to go to a metal show on Monday, & I had no interest in seeing a country music show. Fair enough for me.

Saturday was the Saskatchewan Roughriders home exhibition game. The home town Riders lost, half time was exciting though! I don’t think we were 1 minute into half time & the power at the stadium died. About half of the fans went home after half an hour. Dad & I stayed until the end. I think the second half started around or shortly after 10:00 pm. By the end of the 4th quarter it started to rain. There were dark clouds everywhere even before the game started. Small crowed, since it was a pre season game, got smaller when the power went out & even smaller when it started to rain. Good thing I usually have to wait for everyone to leave since I’m slow going down the stairs. Somebody always asks if they can help us? Common response is “No thanks we’re just slow, we’ve got this”! When the power came back at the stadium they played this over the P.A. System, well played Mr. Announcer!

I’ve pretty much seen every home game since my Grandparents could hold me on their lap. Then I got my own season ticket. Next year in the new stadium, I’ll likely go for one season & that will be it for me. A season ticket is roughly $640 now next season in the new stadium will be in the neighborhood of $1000 per season ticket. That’s too much for us, when I can watch the games on TV. Nothing like being in the stadium though. My mother’s retired & I don’t think dad’s far behind aka it will be too much for them also?

Yes, I got the couch again Saturday night. Kim was sleeping with someone else again. Again, I’d rephrase that but it’s true. Dad, Kim, Brewster, Hannah & I were rocking out to the Frozen soundtrack on the way to the game…

Today is baseball day for me, couch, baseball, & air conditioning. I’m FAR behind the game now, it started at 11:00 am, I recorded it and stated it at 12:30 pm,

I completely agree with this! Would you want a rapist on a National swimming team? Remember he’s representing his country, America!

Obama address’ the shootings at an Orlando gay night club. Maybe let them have guns & tax ammunition ^ raise the price on it, so it’s $65 per bullet? Everybody in the USA with a gun wont let gun laws be changed. Is there a right to own ammunition?

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!
