I fell asleep to “Paul Simon” the album “Graceland”, “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”, & finally “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Blizzard of Oz”

 

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Nest”

How did I deal with being physically disabled, very bad, I felt useless & I wanted to hurt anyone I could.  I wanted everyone to feel as bad as I did.  After a few months & a stern talking to from my brother, parents, & wife I finally snapped out of my rut, got over it, apologized to those I had hurt privately & publically, & moved on.  All of it was heavy baggage that got too heavy because of my poor reaction.  I was just angry at the world.  So I dealt with anger & depression.  The worst struggle with it I’ve ever had with it.

If you’re ever considering suicide or if you’re in a rut, please talk to someone that is more than willing to listen.  Please don’t ever think of yourself as a burden to anyone.  You’ll be surprised at the number of people you’ve had a positive effect on & how many people love you & care about your wellbeing.  I’ve never called a suicide prevention hotline, but they’re there & more willing to listen. 1-877-4747 if you prefer talking to a stranger about any type of mental illness, be it a friend, family member, or yourself don’t hesitate to call.  The sooner you let it out & talk to someone, the sooner you can relax & get the burden off of your back.

I got lucky, I’ve talked with my high school guidance counselor, university counselor, social workers, my doctor, a psychiatrist, my wife, & my parents.  Now I’m OK & not embarrassed to talk about it.  I used to be & it was a topic I tried to distance myself from.  Don’t be ashamed about it 1 in 5 Canadians have some type of mental illness.  I’m on medication for my depression, don’t be embarrassed if you’re told to do the same.  A lot of mental illness’ can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.  The proper medication can be quite useful.

 

Think of it this way, if all of that doesn’t make sense.  If you have the flu, cold or anything like that, you probably go see a doctor, right?  So if you’re dealing with any type of mental illness, more serious than a flu or cold, go talk to a doctor.  Maybe you’ll be referred to someone more knowledgeable on the subject, but you’ve started a conversation about whatever you’re dealing with so just see it through now & meet them half way if needed.

When I’m talking about mental illness, it does not just mean depression.  It includes OCD, ADD, ADHD, etc.

Dear Corey Taylor & Chad Kroeger,

Get over the feud already!  Will this matter in 20 years?  NO!  Your music does not sound comparably similar at all.  Who’s better?  It’s subjective!  Your devious plan worked!  Nickelback released an album, you 2 started a feud, and Stone Sour released an album.  Both albums hit number 1.

Sincerely,

Chris (a music fan)

Can you even tell the gender of the MTV award space suit?

A new single from Trivium!  Just the single, no album from what I can tell

Since it is but a single, I bought it & attached it to another Trivium album or I’d never hear it.  I still have issues with “The Crusade” & “Shogun” although many people call “Shogun” Trivium’s best album.

 

Wow, 1 week in the White House & ‘The Mooch’ is gone

The Foo Fighters’ “Concrete & Gold” album had better be a really good one or I can see Paramore’s “After Laughter” taking multiple Grammy Awards home.  I don’t really put much stock into award shows, but some are fun to watch.  Believe it or not, I know “Lamb of God” has won a Grammy & have been nominated several times.

 

Another ranking of one of my preferred bands, Queens of the Stone Age!

Can’t wait for the new album August 25th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Of course I got into them on their 3rd album with Dave Grohl on drums!

Help them out!  Remember that despite all of the division in this world YOU ARE A GLOBAL CITIZEN!  If that’s too big for you to understand try this.  You don’t have to understand sexuality of another person, just acknowledge that it’s happening if you like it or not.  Remember, every human bleeds red, but no one should bleed.

Royal Blood’s single is up for best track “Lights Out”

 

Pentatonix new single “Dancing on my Own”.  Single only $1.29 on iTunes.  Bought it & attached to their full length album.  If I left it as a single, I’d never hear it!  I listen to albums, not a jumble of songs.

 

Figure it out people!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The average age for a kid to get a cell phone is 6 years old.  Why does a 6 year old need a cell phone?  I’m 37, I had a cell phone for a year 27-28 years old.  The cell phone didn’t save my life, at least not that I know of?  If celebrities like Ed Sheeran & Louis C.K. can survive without a cell phone, I can too!

THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE?

If you’re getting this through facebook, feel invited to like & share this!

There’s no joy in Riderville. 0W-9L. Head coach, Corey Chamblin, was fired as well as the Roughriders GM. I call it a band aid fix. The Saskatchewan Roughriders will win the following 2, 3, or 4 games then continue losing. This mid season firing of the head coach & winning the next few games happens in most sports with any team that does this. No there’s not much “Rider Pride” in Saskatchewan at the moment.

Who ever thought high school would be the best years of your life? I was told that while in high school. I hated high school, couldn’t wait to graduate. I wasn’t part of the “cool kids” crowd. I was just a kid going through the growing pains of puberty. My voice was cracking, my bones were aching, I had to start shaving, I had terrible acne, etc. High school wasn’t all that fun for me. I made a few really good friends, & tried not to ruffle anyone’s feathers. I went to our grad with a girl I had known & gone to school with from kindergarten all the way to grade 12.

Yes, I went to grad, not my idea! “Oh, you’ll regret not going!”. Nope! If I could do it all over again I would certainly not go to my graduation. So what I regret is actually attending my grade 12 graduation. Didn’t want to go to my high school graduation or my SIAST graduation! Best years of my life were out of high school. I made life long friends that were & still are great people but I don’t really want to think about my years in high school. No one’s fault that I hated it so much, it just came off as something I had to do, a chore to become an adult.

Right now are the best years of my life! I live with Kim, my best friend! What more could I ask for?

10 craziest beefs at the MTV VMAs. Of course Nicki Minaj is involved in 1 of them. So is Kanye West. SURPRISE!

Unless these $200 Tool blankets come with a DVD, Blu-ray, VHS, CD, Vinyl, Cassette, Digital Download & a Beta Max full of new material, I don’t need it.

I really want to see “Joe Dirt 2” & then I heard “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the Soundtrack! AWESOME!!!!

I just thought this was really good & needed to be seen…

I’m not a fan of Jack White either. He’s just too much miss than hit for me. I’m also not big on Jonny Depp either.

There are quite a few other famous bands/musicians I have never liked. As for movies, if it has Jonny Depp or Keanu Reeves in it that shoots up a big red flag for me. Jonny Depp fired his agent because 3 movies in a row between last year & earlier this year tanked at the Box office, then he fired his agent. I didn’t see them, but I’m pretty sure his agent didn’t act in them?

^^I saw this movie since the original film from 1971 was really good with Oscar Wylde in it. If I nee to see it again, back to the original film for me.

Live, with their new singer, are much better than the last 2 or 3 albums they did with the original singer

I can’t see the new lineup/singer ever touching the “Throwing Copper” album. That must be a classic masterpiece for them!
