Friday, we went to see the movie “Sausage Party” it was good, I enjoyed it. The first R rated CGI/cartoon movie made. I liked it but I don’t need to see it again, once is enough for me. NOT FOR KIDS, LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, watched the Blue Jays win, 4-2, in the afternoon on TV at home. Watched the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders lose……………………again 19-10. I can’t have any fluid since the washrooms are nowhere close to us, the sun is beating down on us the entire time, Kim pays close to $700 a year so I can be there to watch them lose. Since winning the Championship in 2013 the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have a win-loss record of 14W-29L. It’s a bit financially straining on us now, a $300 increase for next year in the new stadium I think will be a one year thing hopefully in a handicap seat. 12 stairs up & 12 stairs down is not easy for me. Dad & I get there an hour before the game to watch the warm up & not slow down others as they get to the stadium, & we wait about 30 minutes after the game so we don’t slow anyone down on the way out.

Today it’s laundry, groceries & Blue Jay baseball is done for the weekend. The Blue Jays scored 9 runs in a win today, the Riders scored 10 points in a loss yesterday.

Kevin Smith & his 17 year old daughter, Harley Quinn, loved “Suicide Squad”. I love Kevin Smith movies so from him & the fact he’s comic fan who named his daughter after a Batman villain. I’ll Just purchase the blu-ray! I’d show you the video of his review but it’s not appropriate unless you’re a fan of his. Apparently there will be a follow up, stand alone, Harley Quinn movie.

Alex Rodriguez’ last day, Friday, as an MLB player! Article regarding him. He used steroids, got caught, used them again, lied, got caught & continued to lie about it. His statistics would easily put him in the Hall of Fame, but he cheated & will likely never be on the ballot. I think Ty Cobb is in it, but he was accused of murder. They need to reevaluate who’s in there? I have no sympathy for athletes that cheat! He’s currently, has been for quite some time now, the most hated player in the game! Once he got to NY, he’s been known to keep a distance from teammates. On Thursday all of a sudden he has had nothing but praise from teammates & other players?

Thursday nothing but stretching & TV. Friday more of the same with a progressive metal show in the evening to kick off the long weekend! The show was really good. I haven’t been to the Exchange in quite a while. There’s somewhat of a metal scene there. We don’t all know everyone’s name but you go in there & recognize around 50% of the people at least! Great show & fun times! Sound was really good also! I can’t imagine doing sound for an opening death metal band, but it sounded very good! 3 bands for $10, good deal! I’m getting old though. The concert ended around midnight, I was tired, WAY past my bedtime!!! It was “Third Ion’s” album release show, really good progressive metal group!!!!!!

Saturday we went to my parents place for supper & to say goodbye to my cousin & uncle back to Winnipeg as of Sunday morning. We stayed there until around 11:00 pm. Staying out past 10:30 pm makes me tired.

Because of staying out so late, I planted myself on the couch to watch The Toronto Blue Jays fall back into 2nd place in their division. The funniest thing this weekend has been that the Blue Jay scored 6 runs in their game Friday night, & the Roughriders scored 3 points Friday night. The baseball team scored more than the football team! Hahahahahaha!

I think Kim is “Superwoman”, she’s more than amazing. Monday thus far has been Murphy’s Law since I went to shower. Kim’s probably sating to herself “That idiot” & she would be right in doing so. Knock on wood, I have yet to fall today!

Stranger Things” on Netflix is REALLY good. It’s a show based in 1983, a group of kids are playing a game & their friend disappears in the first episode & it goes on from there. 8 50 minute episodes & I really hope there’s a 2nd season! Yes I binge watched the last 4 episodes today, Thursday.

Too bad this isn’t the theme song….

I highly recommend “The Ranch” on Netflix starring Ashton Kutcher & Danny Masterson. This show is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! LANGUAGE!!!!!

Brad Wilk, Rage Against the Machine drummer, wishes Bill Ward, Black Sabbath drummer, had played on the recent album “13”

Donald J. Trump is “Christian” not Christian watch the movie Red State by Kevin Smith. A God does not tell the followers to kill. A God accepts people for who they are! Some where along the way people have not fully understood their religion’s Bible?

There’s a big difference between “Christian” & Christian or “Muslim” & Muslim! Extremist & Religious are two very different things!!!

I saw my chiropractor for my back pain Wednesday morning. Had a message & some adjustments (cracks). I guess my back muscles are very tight? I might have to go back next week? We’ll see how the weekend goes? It does feel better, & I have some stretches to do for my back that he showed me. Could be worse I guess. This has happened before. I hurt my back twice in high school. Twisted at my desk to borrow a pencil, went home for lunch, layed on the kitchen floor & couldn’t go back for the afternoon. Second time in high school. I picked up a piece of paper from beside my bed & there went my back! Then multiple times after that & 7 cortisone shots in my spine, through 4.5 years in the hospital. All in all, not that big of a deal.

10 best live bands in metal right now.

http://www.laweekly.com/music/the-10-best-live-bands-in-metal-right-now-7142677

I’ll take Trivium, Lamb of God, or In Flames as far as “popular” metal bands go.

There are a TON of “famous” metal bands I haven’t seen live yet, like “Iron Maiden”.

Kim’s watching a Tony Robbins thing on Netflix at the moment. He could compete with Dave Grohl for the number of F-Bombs during a live show! Nothing like paying a stranger to tell you how to live your life!

From what I know, Alter Bridge will release their 5th album in September sometime? I think The Pretty Reckless have an album recorded? The only preorder I have is Sum 41 for October 7th. I have these 2 songs so far.

Nothing from Alter Bridge yet & no album announced by The Pretty Reckless so far, just this single. The Sum 41 song will be on the upcoming album.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Lazy weekend here. Friday night was Clear the DVR. Saturday I went with my parents to a virtual tour of the new football stadium for the 2017 season, came home & stayed out of Kim’s way while she cleaned. When she cleans it’s how normal people clean twice a year. Everything is moved, clean the spot where it sits & when one room has been finished she might put things back or usually most of them. When she cleans like that, I stay out of the way, she’s on a mission! Sunday has been quiet thus far & likely wont change!

I like Motorhead, so I know what I’m getting, that’s why I have 2 Greatest Hits albums & their last release “Aftershock”

I’M SICK

I tried to sleep to “Third Ion” that’s 2 nights in a row I’ve listened to the 8 song album debut with no luck falling asleep, I went to “Ed Sheeran” the album “X”

I’m pretty sure I’m at the beginning of a bad flu bug. Started yesterday & got worse. Hopefully I’ll be better tomorrow. My stomach won’t keep food down & the aching started last night & hasn’t changed. Fluids & crackers for me! Laid in bed with Brewster falling in & out of sleep this morning until 11:30 am Brewster got up around noon or shortly after.  In other words, I’ll catch you when I’m better!

I WILL MISS THE ROCK IT OUT BLOG UNTIL IT’S RETOOLED & BACK IN ACTION

Today’s exercise was brought to you by “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I fell asleep to “Smashing Pumpkins” the album “Gish”. Listened to the entire “Megadeth” album but it didn’t do the trick. Same deal with the majority of the latest release by “Iron Maiden”

I really enjoyed the Rock It Out Blog. Sami & his team turned me onto “Chromeo”. I wouldn’t even know they existed without hearing about on his blog. I’ve never heard of them since, but I heard them on that blog & it kind of woke me up to different music that’s out there. I didn’t agree with everything on the Rock It Out Blog, but it gave me a well needed update. “Hey there’s a TON of other stuff out there & there’s no harm in taking a peek at what’s out there”. Worst thing that could happen, I take 5 minutes to see if I like something I’d never heard of before. I don’t necessarily like the 3 previous “Chromeo” albums but the album “White Women” was the most sugary pop album I had ever heard, & I really like it! Consequence of Sound is still there with daily updates & this is just a hiatus for Sami, he’ll be back.

Black Sabbath” in the news

http://loudwire.com/black-sabbath-four-the-end-compilation-songs-online/

Music charts are laughable! More people listened to this rather than that. Good for whoever is involved with the album………………as for fans, they’ll listen to what they like.

Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys, plots world tour. Do not wake up in the middle of the night & sing “That’s where we want to go” & instantly fall back asleep. Your significant other will look at you oddly & ask if you remember doing that at 3:00 am! I speak from experience, Kim must have thought I was more than a little loopy?!

I can also tell you this. If you have access to www.youtube.com do not search for “Making a Murderer”?! Your computron might blow up or the interweb might die!!!!!!

Yes, I know he’s not a farmer or a scientist.

Cancer doesn’t care about you or your family & friends. You can be as healthy as you like & cancer wont care one bit. That being said, you shouldn’t live in fear for your entire life about being diagnosed with a terminal disease! Yes, it’s hard for everyone around you (not just you) to deal with it. I guarantee everyone will deal with the situation differently, in their own way. If you’re not happy with the way others deal with it, give them time & space to deal with it.

I fell asleep to “Finger Eleven” the album “Five Crooked Lines”

I exercised to “Clutch” the album “Pure Rock Fury”

Sam Dunn” is making another metal documentary. He visited “In Flames” bar 2112

Right from “Finger Eleven’s” Facebook page

“Why would you ever sign a petition against anyone creating music? There’s nothing official yet but I guess Kanye West might release some Bowie covers?? There’s an online petition against this idea in any case. Makes me crazy..
Same thing happened when Phil Collins announced that he finally got his back issues under control through surgery allowing him drum again. He’s planning on coming out of retirement to play. An online petition against THAT showed up.
I’m going to go ahead and avoid the Kanye covers but I’ll be damned if I sign a petition against him making his music. It’s arrogant to pretend that any kind of petition would stop anyone from creating anyway. That’s not how the creative process works. You can’t just petition away all the music you happen to disapprove of.
I know what we do: let’s start a petition to stop petitions that stifle artists creativity. More music for everybody! Boom. Issue resolved!”

Munenori Kawasaki may have been a bench player, but I think his defense will be missed as well as his attitude. He would usually be on the field a ½ hour before the other players. I don’t like this move by the Blue Jays, it doesn’t make sense to me. I’m not a part of the organization for a reason though.

I don’t know much about country music. Not really my thing, yet I’m married to a devoted country music fan?

In this case I’d have to say Donald Trump is more entertaining! Donald shows up, Axl……..not so much!
