I fell asleep to “The Refreshments” the album “Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big, & Buzzy” followed by “In Flames” the live album “Sounds from the Heart of Gothenburg”

I exercised to “AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!”  “Kelly Clarkson” the album “All I Ever Wanted”

It’s official Brewster has a younger Aunt!  My parents bought their puppy on Saturday.  It’s a mutt, ½ Maltese & ½ Yorkie.  Fully grown, Goose, will be around 8 pounds.  I think they got ripped off we went over on Sunday (without Brewster, they can’t be around each other until Goose gets her 3rd vaccination & has begun the deworming pills) Goose is the size of a Guinea pig right now.  It’s weird seeing a dog that small, I thought Brewster was tiny, but then I met Goose who I think is just over 1 pound.  Brewster couldn’t even smell Goose on us.  Goose did fall asleep on both of us (licked & chewed on my thumbs, puppies have really sharp teeth).  Brewster looked HUGE when we picked him up after our visit.  Yes, Goose is named after Goose from “Top Gun”.  I guess Mitch & I have a younger sister now.  I was hoping for a sister when Mitch was born, I guess Goose will do.  The difference other than the gender is the size.  Goose is just as furry as Mitch though.

Today, Kim & I both just wanted to stay in bed.  We did until roughly 6:20 am. I went out & started with 60 squats.  Brewster didn’t want to get up either, I had to wake him up (after a belly rub) & took him outside.  He was up & down from our bed all night.  He can’t get on our bed, he growls until someone helps him, 99.9% of the time it’s Kim.

It’s November, & it was 20 degrees Celsius/68 degrees Fairenhight.  I was outside yesterday in shorts & a T-Shirt.  I grabbed my hoodie & Kim told me I wouldn’t need it.

It’s a 4 day week in Canada.  Friday, November 11th is Remembrance Day.  A day to remember our veterans aka the reason we speak English and/or French.  I’ve already lost 1 of 3 poppies (a pin of the flower that Canadians wear over our heart).  I lost my poppy in the vehicle, I don’t think it lasted 30 minutes?

Best albums of the ‘90s.  I’ve posted this before.  Foo Fighters’ album “The Colour & The Shape” was an instant game changer for me.

Singer of “My Morning Jacket”, Jim James, discusses his latest solo album.  The albums of My Morning Jacket are EXTREMELY tame compared to seeing them live.  I saw them in 2003 opening for Foo Fighters.  The CD I bought is caked I reverb & the album is very mellow.  More of mood music for me.

SO FAR SO GOOD FOR THE JAYS 2W-0L

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

Listened to probably half of that & it just didn’t feel right. I put on “Dream Theater” their self titled album that was released in the summer of 2008 while I was in the hospital.

I exercised to “The 1975” the album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

Perfect season so far for the Toronto Blue Jays. 4 home runs in 2 games. 3 Monday & 1 Sunday. Troy Tulowitzki, MVP Josh Donaldson, 2 run home run from LF Micheal Saunders & 1 from the highly unlikely back catcher Josh Thole (his 9th career home run). Time for another young guy who throws around 95MPH to start the game tonight. I hope he does well!

No thank you, the rest of the solo album is really good. Don’t mess with a classic you released in 1997 on Big Wreck’s debut album. I may be on my way to being a grumpy old man set in my ways, but I’ll always prefer the original version.

New studio album from The Rolling Stones! They could just tour if they wanted to. It’s not like they have a limited catalogue of songs to play.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/my-morning-jacket-to-reissue-it-still-moves-unveil-unreleased-songs-20160404

I find the albums quite mellow, yet seeing them live is the complete opposite.

Not much of a surprise since Tim Burton directed the first Beetle Juice.

VETERANS

 

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” their first major release “Ten”

I exercised to “My Morning Jacket” the album “Z”

Seeing them live was a totally different experience. They opened for Foo Fighters in Edmonton in 2003.

Veterans from any war or those currently enlisted deserve nothing but the best from the rest of the country. If your living in any country speaking the native language & are free to do as you please, without breaking the law, thank your veterans! I don’t like hearing about any war, but I guess it’s a necessary evil. So a HUGE THANK YOU to those who put their lives on the line to make the rest of us feel safe..

The one lyric that makes me laugh, on the newest release by “Dream Theater” is “…people just don’t have time for music anymore…”. I REALLY like Dream Theater, but why don’t people have time for music anymore? Because a Dream Theater album will be 9 songs all averaging 7-12 minutes long. On this latest release the songs average 4-5 minutes, but there are 34 songs. It takes 3 hours roughly to hear the album front to back! I could be half way to Winnipeg in that time?

Pro GMO

http://www.macleans.ca/society/science/in-praise-of-genetically-modified-foods/

A & W took a stand by advertising their meat as having no steroids or antibiotics used in their burgers. Great! Now if the chicken, cow or fish gets sick you either get infected/ill meat or the animal in question is killed for no reason because they can’t sell sick livestock. I’m sure I didn’t get cancer because I was consuming GMOs, if that was the case, why are the majority of people on earth not getting cancer?

I Mother Earth shared it…..

Just trolling around www.youtube.com & found a few interesting Foo Fighters things. Pat Smear & Dave Grohl stalk the deceased David Bowie. LANGUAGE!!!!!

Apparently the best Foo Fighters interview ever.

I hated grunge & metal music when they were all the rage. I was into a few heavier bands when they came out like “I Mother Earth” & “Our Lady Peace”. Now it’s all metal & grunge for me, with a nice sprinkling of other stuff, mostly pop. Everything in moderation for me musically. When Grunge music was the big thing in the ’90s I was listening to “Barenaked Ladies”, “U2”, “Hootie & The Blowfish”, “Micheal Jackson”, etc. & I still do other than “Hootie & The Blowfish. Then I became a big fan of “Queen” & “Foo Fighters” then, slowly I got into the heavier stuff. My dad had some “Queen” when I was younger, I listened to it in the car, wasn’t a huge fan………………….yet!

HOBBIES

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Eagles of Death Metal”, all 4 albums on shuffle.

 

Not much time for me today just did my 420 crunches. Then put away the dishes & made a fruit/vegetable blender drink, that’s my breakfast or once in a while “Rice Krispies” or “Cheerios” with 1% or skim milk.

No more Blue Jays talk until they make a move, likely a trade. This is supposed to be the most active trading off season in many decades. I’d rather wait to see what happens instead of gossiping & speculating about what might happen.

 

Playing baseball was my first hobby, then I joined choir in grade 10 at high school & music became my preferred hobby since I can’t play baseball? Kim & I did play softball on a paper company’s team for a year or two, that was fun while it lasted! I already had the taste of being in a rock band & that’s what I continued to do. I taught myself guitar & just became more of a tenor singer than a bass/baritone singer, since the melodies in my head were higher than my voice was.

 

The Agonist shared it………

Top 10 Rob Zombie songs. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, he’s quite intelligent & a fantastic interview.
http://loudwire.com/best-rob-zombie-songs/

He truly is a modern day Alice Cooper, a highly intelligent shock rocker. I’ve seen Alice Cooper live in Regina in 2004 as well as Rob Zombie opening for Ozzy in 2007 in Saskatoon.

I’d have to agree with Kevin Smith (actor/director/writer/editor) Episode III Revenge of the Sith & Episode V The Empire Strikes Back are the most dark & best movies of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. For me anyways. Yes I have the 6 movies on DVD, before blu-ray were the in thing, with one bonus DVD of bonus material. This is me nerding out.

I like ‘Florence & The Machine’ I just don’t own any of their music! It’s music I’d buy & never listen to.

All of this much ado about nothing over Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner). Can I ask how this directly affects you or your lifestyle? “Oh, it changed my opinion of him/her so much”. OK, how? Didn’t change me at all & now he/she is comfortable as transgender. I would think it only affects the family members and her/him? Media backlash? Who cares, don’t read it.

One more year of me biting my tongue for 10-15 minutes & then leaving the living room while Kim watches the rest of “American Idol”. Without Harry Connick Jr. the show would have ended before he signed on, just my opinion. I think he’s funny, gives constructive criticism, & knows what he’s talking about. The premiss of the show just got old. I randomly watch the show. My 2 picks didn’t make it to the top 4. When Kim told me they were gone, I just stopped watching. Kim & I have pretty much stopped watching “reality” contest shows. She watches “Dancing with the Stars” & some “American Idol”. I’ll watch HGTV stuff every now & then, Mike Holmes stuff, Decked Out & Timber Kings. The odd Food Network shows too if something’s on while I’m flipping through the guide.

I really like Pentatonix & Home Free! Both are acapella groups. Yes I also like the 1st “Pitch Perfect” movie.

Connie Kaldor at The Exchange in Regina. Almost all of the Chemical Horizon, the band I was in until I got cancer, shows were at The Exchange. A couple of shows were at The Gaslight & The Distrikt. The Distrikt for me was pretty much the same for me as playing at Wembley Stadium for Dave Grohl. I saw so many great bands there! That was probably the most nerve racking experience for me on stage. A “Don’t screw this up” experience. There aren’t many places in Regina for original rock/metal bands to play. The Exchange, The Distrikt (which is no more), The Gaslight & occasionally The Riddel Center at the university. I guess we also played once at The Owl, the university bar, in a battle of the bands thing.

I’ve never heard of “Tame Impala”? Probably because they’re new, put their music on the internet for pennies & don’t tour the entire world.

New artist. I believe he was on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week & I just watched him on last night Conan! Good voice with nothing but an acoustic guitar. I’d likely buy his album & rarely listen to it.

Terrible version of “Vasoline” by Scott Weiland. Yeah the same guy that sang/wrote the song with Stone Temple Pilots. Is he drunk or high or both?

I have an issue on the use of cell phones. When you see a “fail” video on youtube that’s fine, it’s hilarious. In a real life or death situation most people whip out their phone to get it on video? Who the heck stands there taking a video with a cell phone while someone might be dying? Maybe put the phone down & see if you can help? Remember, it’s a phone as well, not just a video camera.

A cover of Foo Fighters’ “Congregation” pretty good too!

Tremonti on new album. Yes, this is old you’ve seen it before.
http://loudwire.com/mark-tremonti-new-album-cauterize-more/?trackback=tsmclip

Why are they so far in to the tour without 1 of the 2 albums released on all websites (not for pre-order on iTunes)? Barenaked Ladies came out of nowhere & already have an iTunes pre-order, a release date, & a tour? I knew more about Tremonti being in the studio than I did about Barenaked Ladies being in the studio & having the recording process going so fast. Is Tremonti going to finish the tour before the album is released? What comes first the chicken or the egg? Who’s the chicken or egg?

The fancy shmancy Alter Bridge box set my mother ordered for me in November of 2013 for my birthday in January of 2014 came last summer/fall. I was lucky. Other people haven’t received anything for an expensive & rare box set (3000 made). Each box set contains multiple DVD interviews, 4 vinyl records, all 4 CDs, a DVD of music videos, a coffee table book & has your name engraved on the front. It was supposed to be released in January of 2014. No wonder those who haven’t received it want a refund.

I like “Clutch” quite a bit!
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-29/clutch-aim-for-diverse-11th-album

These are just cool videos. Music is subjective as are the videos. I think the concept of having famous actors in the videos were very smart decisions.

So far Smashing Pumpkins, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, A.D.D. & Halestorm have released their albums. My Morning Jacket will be released on Tuesday. Barenaked Ladies’ will be released on June 2nd. So we’re waiting for Finger Eleven, Into Eternity, Third Ion, Tremonti, Tool & whatever else pop’s up.

By the way, it’s Willie Nelson’s birthday today. I’m assuming he’ll have “special” brownies or cake.

This is why I don’t like physical formats of music, they take up room I don’t have now. Digital music doesn’t take up room, & it’s VERY convenient. Napster beat up rock music. Spotify, Pandora radio, iTunes, etc. finished it off. Rock music isn’t dead, it’s just harder to find now.
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-29/british-library-on-hunt-for-rare-music-collections

If we get rid of streaming & torrent sites, more people will have to pay for music like it should be! Who came up with the idea that anything should be free? Should I go into a restaurant & order steak & lobster & demand that it be free?

This doesn’t make any sense to me. Why did Tool have to wait to record their album until the lawsuit was over? Why not record it & wait to release it when the lawsuit was over? They weren’t in court for 9 years. They were in Regina for a live show in 2010, not in court in L.A.? I don’t care if they had a delay with the art work. People will buy the CD rip it to iTunes & likely forget about the art work.

I will call him a cheater & a flat out liar to everyone, fans, players, friends, & team mates until forever. The fans at baseball games when A-ROID is there WILL boo him for all of those things. This is what is disgusting to me. You can use steroids 3 times & on the 3rd time you’re dismissed from baseball entirely. If you’re an on field manager & bet on your team to win the World Series once, you’re gone? So cheating is better than gambling on your own team to win?

This is not a live show if it has pre-recorded backing tracks. If it’s electronic I could understand it & Tool does it but they bring the samplers on stage & use them as an instrument the drummer and vocalist both operate samplers on stage. They have nothing to hide, but KISS does. Fall Out Boy use samples on their albums, I’ve never seen Fall Out Boy live though. They tend to think that’s what will save rock music, I don’t think so. At least that’s my take on it.

Songs/videos I like. “The Birds of Satan” not metal. Taylor Hawkins (FF drummer) side project. He drums and sings live.
