I fell asleep to “Tremonti” the album “Dust”.

I exercised to “Paul McCartney & Wings” their “Greatest Hits” album.

Sorry if this is late? Had to make a juice, & fix some iTunes files where you could buy a USB stick of the show after it was done. A Barenaked Ladies show here from 2007.

“If I had my way” the week & weekend would be split more evenly. 4 days of work & a 3 day weekend every weekend. I’d shoot for a 4 day weekend but that wouldn’t happen. “I’d make Friday part of the weekend” & make chocolate a high protein, no fat, no sugar food! I forgot too take my pills Saturday night aka I really didn’t sleep well. I woke up at 4:40 am to go to the washroom, fell back asleep pretty quick. I woke up, thinking I had slept for quite a while (I have no clock on my side of the bed), I got up and I always put my eye patch, glasses & watch on last. My watch said 6:30 am? I guess I didn’t sleep much at all? I don’t take sleeping pills anymore, I haven’t for quite a few years. I don’t know what pill makes me sleep out of the few I take? Those memory pills are working great!!!! I think they might be a placebo?

Making my juice or whatever you want to call it vegetables & fruit blended together. I turned on “Headstones” their 1st 4 albums on shuffle.

I would like to be watching the first Toronto Blue Jays regular season game which the pregame starts at 1:00 pm. Baseball trumps most things on the weekends. Until our TV shows finish their season it’s Blue Jays in :30 which I don’t like but it’s better than nothing I guess? They lost their last 2 spring training games in Montreal against the Boston Red Sox. Doesn’t really matter since they didn’t play all of the regulars for long if at all.

We saw 10 Cloverfield Lane Saturday evening. Would have been a great movie if they could have written an ending. At least John Goodman was in it. I don’t see a reason for a sequel despite the lack of an ending.

Mark Tremonti interview on his upcoming release April 29th, the next Alter Bridge album currently being recorded at the moment, & his desire to collaborate with Metallica.

The Alter Bridge album “Fortress”, their 4th album, was the first album of theirs that I downloaded on iTunes, the previous 3 I bought on CD. My mother got me the 10 year anniversary box set so know I have all four CDs & all four on vinyl, plus DVDs of interviews. Each album seams to be better than the previous release (for me), I hope they continue that trend!

How many Axl Rose on stage blow ups will happen on this “reunion” tour? I’ll guess 2 or 3 as a minimum. For the record, I don’t like Guns n’ Roses. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” their debut album from 1987. I haven’t listened to it in at least 12 or 13 years, I bought since the rest of the world kept telling me it was so good, sorry, not for me. They have their place but for me, it’s buried in my closet, where it will stay.


At this point you’re probably asking yourself “Does this idiot even like music?”. I do, but it’s not Metallica, GNR, or the entire 1980s L.A. hair metal scene. 1990S “grunge” is more my thing, or modern metal. You probably have never heard of the metal I like unless you’re a fan of metal? The metal I like really isn’t hard to find. There are many other metal fans in Regina that know much more about metal than I do.

1 GNR concert down, 20 to go here’s some info from the first show.

It’s much more difficult than I anticipated to keep my opinion to myself. Remember that you can always suggest a group to me & I’ll be more than willing to check it out. You don’t have to check out the stuff I like either if you don’t want to, it’s just a suggestion, sort of a “See if you like this?”

This was a topic on one of the far too many TV shows I watch. Is it morally wrong to watch “The Cosby Show” knowing that he allegedly did some terrible things? If so, is it just as wrong to listen to “Michael Jackson” despite what he was accused of doing? I watched “The Cosby Show” growing & it was good as a kid. I have no desire to watch it again, not for what he’s being accused of simply because I don’t need/want to see it again. My parents have a DVD of him doing his stand up comedy, is it wrong that I want to watch it? As for Michael Jackson, I don’t listen to him often, when I do I turn it up to 11! Is that wrong? “…..In a nutshell….” are the fallen entertainment legends labeled for the good things they’ve done or the bad things……………or both, is it OK to enjoy their entertainment while knowing what they’ve been accused of? Is it wrong that I listen to “Moxy Fruvous” still after what Jian Gomeshi has been accused of? O.J. Simpson? So many celebrities. I’m not a fan of NFL & never have been, I had no clue who O.J. was until his trial when I was a teenager in the ’90s. Please respond with your thoughts?

Even singer “Steven Page” of this group was sent to jail for cocaine possession & I still listen to the stuff he sang on. I really don’t know where I stand on the majority of these matters?

I wouldn’t apologize for this, I also wouldn’t use the language he used. It’s a live show. In my opinion, cell phones should not be allowed in any public gathering for a movie or show. Every concert, musical & live performance should at least have the cell phone disclaimer before the show like there is at every movie. You can purchase or rent the movie afterwards. The crappy video & crappy sound on your phone you may look at once & realize it’s terrible but you just paid $90 to see it live & you screwed it up. How about someone coming to your place of employment & video recording you? It will bother you, any co workers, & clients, who need to speak with you.

If it comes to the point that I require a cell phone, I’ll use it like a home phone. If I’m out and you’re not there it would be for two reasons only, I didn’t invite you for some reason or you weren’t able to attended and I’m not the one who will give you the play by play. Also if you text me, I’ll call you………………consider yourself warned. I don’t like the idea of mobile devices in the least. You have one that’s fine with me. I don’t need or want one.

I’m not a fan of Gwen Stefani’s solo work but her stuff with “No Doubt” I do enjoy!

I know my brother saw them with “Paramore” as the opener. I think I was in the hospital & I hadn’t heard of “Paramore”? If I had, I would’ve tagged along.

Mark Tremonti on the progress from the studio recording the 5th Alter Bridge album.

“Guitars are coming along nicely!” I hope it’s released this year?!

Guns n’ Roses first show of the reunion tour in a small club. I wonder what other group performs at a small club before a huge tour after recording a new album?………………wait……………it’s “Foo Fighters” usually a secret show with a different name advertised.

I’m ready to watch baseball and “I’ve got my short shorts on”

Here I come couch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First regular season game, then 161 more to go. I watch the majority of the 3 hour game almost everyday, if I can’t I guess I’ll record “Blue Jays in :30” & I usually feel lonely. I know of 2 friends that can watch a 3 hour baseball game. Last year they played 19 innings instead of the usual 9 innings, that’s just over 6 hours, I watched it all. No such thing as a tie game in baseball, they play until someone wins!

The Toronto Blue Jays made a BIG trade Monday evening/Tuesday morning. All-Star short stop & 3 pitching prospects to Colorado for arguably the best short stop in baseball & a 42 year old reliever. Tonight we’ll see the new short stop in action!

I heard “Kid A” by Radiohead once, left, bought all the way up to & including “In Rainbows”, then left them completely.

Halestorm shared it…

Megadeth reveal 15 song track list for their 15th studio album!

10 best metal songs about blood of course any metal fan is going to assume Slayer’s “Raining Blood” is on the list & it is. The rest I’ve never heard of or I just don’t like even with Slayer that is the only album I want/listen to.

Metallica now has Comic books written about them.

New video from “Clutch”

Foo Fighters shared it & it’s HILARIOUSLY FANTASTIC!!! Watch the entire video to see the AWESOME farmer tan at the end!!

Dave Grohl’s broke leg air drumming rehab & more

Danny DeVito & Jimmy Fallon play inflatable flip cups!

“Eagles of Death Metal” on the sexiness of new album.

Arguably their biggest hit, Josh Homme, (Queens of the Stone Age) on drums. Video with Dave Grohl & Jack Black.

Are we going to end up saying “Ah, next year” for a Tool album? At this point we might as well round it up to a decade! From the 2006/most recent release.

Songs I like. “Moxy Fruvous” one CD.
