Dear CFL officials,

The first 3 quarters of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ the Saskatchewan Roughriders was quite possibly in my top 3 terrible football games I’ve ever seen in my 38 years of life that I can remember seeing.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

A season ticket holder.

 

Music throughout the week.  A lot of “Devin Townsend”, “Dead Sara”, “Big Wreck”, & “Tremonti”

 

There was no exercising going on this week.  My wife told me on Tuesday that she had Wednesday off, so I decided I had the week off.  Fair enough my finger is 98% better, a few extra days of doing the bare minimum won’t hurt it.  Being your own boss definitely has it’s benefits!

I leave Regina for a few days & it seemed as though everything flipped on me?!  Best Buy has stopped selling CDs, Trump is still President, the Toronto Blue Jays made a trade, & nobody wants to OWN music??!!?!

I hear a LOT of whispers that CDs & downloading music will soon be a thing of the past?  Downloading should stick around.  I wouldn’t think downloading an album or streaming an album wouldn’t cost Apple extra money, but I really don’t know?  I’m waiting for an announcement from Apple/iTunes regarding this.

I’ve heard that vinyl will still be around though?  Is it really cost effective to do away with CD production & still release vinyl?  I have no clue?

If that’s all that is available in the future, vinyl & streaming, I plan to use both.  I’ll stream stuff on my iPod, I’ll also purchase vinyl every 3 or 4 months of the stuff I want to own.  That’s my opinion, I’m not speaking for anyone else or saying that it’s wrong.

This streaming crap drives me crazy, in a VERY bad way.  What the heck Apple?  iTunes isn’t available just for me.  I have the option to purchase my music or stream/rent it like a magazine subscription.  I’d like to have that option in the future.  Nobody these days seems to care if Apple Music shuts down & leaves them with nothing?

I find the entire thing as ridiculous as Trump being President.  “We’re going to give you streaming music only & royally piss off musicians that make all of our product” – internet.  I want the option, it can’t be a waste of money on Apple’s side of things?  “Stupid is as stupid does” – Forrest Gump.

If this is where the music industry is headed, I’m glad that I wasn’t talented enough to be in a professional band, where I work for pennies when someone streams my music!  At this point, EVERYONE should work for free if musicians have to!

I’m not a fan of Apple’s music software, but downloading from iTunes is very convenient, when it works properly!  Kim & I have hacked away at problems that occur & “so far so good”

Lots of people like having the option to stream or purchase music.  I don’t understand the cost benefit of doing away with both CDs & legal downloading?

This is just a very disappointing moment for the music industry.  The guy that created Napster needs a hard smack upside the head.  I hate to agree with anything Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, says but he was right for how he took a stand against Napster.  I’ll see you soon vinyl!  This entire idea I find to be very pathetic & stupid!  A vinyl album costs a minimum of $20 each.

 

You can’t take vinyl albums to listen to in your vehicle but I guess you can take streaming music with you.  I can also take my iPod full of iTunes purchases in the vehicle too.  I just want the option.  Purchasing vinyl albums will severely cut down on me purchasing music.

 

John Oliver has a bit on his show that asks this question.

I’d like to know this.  How are mass shootings still a thing?

 

July 4th 1995 Dave Grohl released the first Foo Fighters album on which he recorded all of the instruments & vocals with the exception of one guitar part.

 

BARSTOOL PROPHETS

 

4 guys from Cornwall, Ontario.  They released 2 major albums.  I have the first one on CD & the other one is only available on www.amazon.ca for $70.  I own the album “Crank” the 2nd one is called “Last of the Big Game Hunters”.  I’d get the 2nd one but I’m not paying $70 for a CD!?!?  “Crank” was released in 1995 & “Last of the Big Game Hunters” was released in 1997.  I was under age to see them live in 1997 when they played in Regina, so I’ve never seen them live.

From what I can tell on their website, they just tour Ontario, Canada.  I would think that if they’re still active they’d put their 2nd album on iTunes & Streaming sites.  I’ve only seen the video for the song “Little Death” back in the day when Much Music actually played music videos 24 hours a day.  That song was enough to make me get the CD.  Luckily the rest of the album is great.  Check out their website here https://www.barstoolprophets.ca/

It’s a 12 song album, so that should be enough for you to get the idea.

 

I agree with most of this.  I think Trivium should be thrown in the mix & Lamb of God should be higher up.  I like Slayer, but I find them over rated.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

Quiet Mother’s Day.  Over to my parents’ house for BBQ chicken & ribs, avocado salad & potato salad.  Followed by 2 tasty cakes.  Yes, I tried both cakes to make sure they were up to standard for everyone else……You’re welcome, I aim to please!

Lots of people there for supper.  Mom, dad, Kent, Leanne, my cousins Megan Gagnon, Danielle Gagnon, Grandma, Grandpa, aunt Leanne’s parents, Clint & Dorothy White, Mitch, Rachel was at a wedding shower, Kim & I.  I feel as though I’m missing someone?  Sorry, lots of people & 2 dogs, Mac & Goose, Brewster stayed with Sherry & James.

Yes, I have converted my dad into a “Big Wreck”, “Foo Fighters”, & “Royal Blood” fan & now a “Queens of the Stone Age” fan.  I saw “Royal Blood” open for “Foo Fighters” with my father in 2015.  I’ve never seen “Queens of the Stone Age” before this though.  A very quick trip to Calgary to see the show.  Drive on Wednesday, get there in time for supper.  Concert was on Thursday night.  Drove back to Regina on Friday & got here at about 6:00 pm.  A big thank you to my Aunt & Uncle Kent & Leanne Fraser for letting dad & I stay at their house!  Kent is my dad’s younger brother

When we saw Foo Fighters in 2015 my uncle said to me, “So you’ll only come to Calgary if Foo Fighters are in town?”  I should have said this time “Nope, we’ll come for Queens of the Stone Age too!”  In actuality Kim & I might go there for a bit of vacation time during the summer in the next few years.

This is just to show that a guy in a wheelchair can get out & still live a relatively ‘normal’ life with the help of family & friends!  My legs work a bit, so I’ll need help if I’m somewhere new.  By the 2nd day I figured out how to stand at the washroom counter on the main floor & the second floor to brush my teeth & wash my face.  Dad had to help me get to the toilet, not really a big deal?

The concert was FANTASTIC!  Royal Blood now has 2 ten song albums out & Queens of the Stone Age have 7 albums out.  The most recent album was produced by Mark Ronson who released 1 album with guest vocalist including “Uptown Funk” with “Bruno Mars”, I was curious at first just to hear what would come out of the 2 working together and the album was really good, live was even better.  Royal Blood opened…

Queens of the Stone Age were the headliner.  I’m not sure how long Royal Blood played for but they started right at 8:00 pm, which was nice, & Queens of the Stone Age finished right at 11:00 pm.  Short show, but well worth the trip….

I remember more songs they played but that’s quite a few already!  Nice needed break!

 

Yes, I consider myself a Metallica fan now, a friend of mine is a HUGE fan & lent me the CDs.  I have the studio albums & the live album with the symphony.  I had a few on CD as well.  I totally agree with the musicians having a strong dislike for Napster & now all of these streaming sites.  I personally hate them.  I use iTunes, if I had the physical space I’d start a vinyl collection!  Unless you’re buying a TON of merchandise, alcohol, clothing, or a fragrance released by your favourite artists, that’s the only way they’re able to continue doing what they’re do!  They’re not making money from album sales anymore!  Swedish metal groups Opeth & In Flames have their own brand of beer from Opeth & Gin from In Flames.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/metallicas-kirk-hammett-were-still-right-about-suing-napster-w520290

I used Napster, I downloaded Torrent files for free also.  While I was sick, we’d go to a music store & I’d pick out CDs, 2 a month when I was able to go home for a few hours at night.  I’d ask Kim to purchase the 2 CDs.  “Do you have this already?” she’d ask.  I usually said “Yes, the Torrent file”.  I carried on this way until CDs dropped in price.  Then I started to use iTunes.  I figured, “I was working for a paycheck, why not musicians?”  You’re entitled to get your music however you like.  Maybe it’s different than what I choose to do?  That’s fine with me, I use iTunes & Kim uses Apple Music.  Whatever floats your boat, I use Apple Music to preview an album before I buy it on iTunes.

 

“Trivium” needs to come back to Saskatoon, as well as “In Flames”.  Not only to play a show there but my “Trivium” & “In Flames” shirts both have a hole in the right armpit.  Now designated as exercise shirts.

 

Trailer for the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!  I heard it was in the works & that Sacha Baron Cohen “Borat” was fired when they got into the production, finally it’s here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/first-bohemian-rhapsody-trailer-released/

 

Mark Tremonti likes “The Cars”?  AWESOME!

I agree.  The Blue Jays are paying $20,000,000 a year for injured short stop, Troy Tulowitzki.  He was good for 2.5 months at the end of 2015 and currently hasn’t played since July of 2017.  His fielding is great, his hitting is more than questionable.  At least it’s not my money!  There’s about 6 rookie short stops waiting in the minor leagues, Tulowitzki has created a road block for.  The Blue Jays got him in the last week of July 2015.  He was good right up to mid-October, & hasn’t been the same since.

I exercised to “Big Wreck” 4 studio albums, 1 live EP & a concert at Roy Thompson Hall with a Symphony Orchestra just before their hiatus in 2002, after their second studio album.

I had to do some stuff in the kitchen, dishwasher & make a new juice so of course I put on some music. “Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals” the new album “Call It What It Is”

That Big Wreck song. That’s the only time I’ve ever broken a bone. I was at Edgefest in Saskatoon, a one day festival outside in the summer of 1999. Big Wreck was on stage & I was in the mosh pit @ the age of 19. I was holding up a crowd surfer & some other body came flying out of nowhere & used my face as a landing target. Immediately blood started pouring out of my nose. Shirt, shorts, & shoes were all covered in blood. Everybody in the mosh pit cleared out of the way for me to run to the closest security guard at the front of the stage. He picked me up as though I was s heavy as feather & pointed me to the first aid tent. I stayed there for a short amount of time & told the EMT I was OK & the blood had stopped. I wasn’t going to miss Big Wreck? I got up & left after a few questions from the EMT. I went out & stayed out of the pit, just behind the crowd. Big Wreck were still playing the same song!

Yep, I pushed it too far on Monday. Took it back a bit on Tuesday, & I’m good with the number I hit for leg lifts. Still more than it was last week, now my hip flexers don’t get sore. I have to remember to increase things at a minimal amount & take my time when I increase something.

I woke up yesterday & thought “Great it’s Friday!!…Crap it’s Tuesday”

Failure Anthem video, I’ve never heard of them before? Facebook is now how I find out about bands. Used to be Much Music. But they don’t play music much these days. Canada’s MTV. From what I can tell on iTunes, this is their first album, it was released in January. It rubs me the wrong way, but there it is if you want it!

I LOATHE THE IDEA OF STREAMING MUSIC

“…can I get an Amen….”

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 don’t plan on having a Netflix subscription until the day I die. Why would I keep a subscription to ‘rent’ music from a streaming site either. I want to know on the first of every month I don’t have to pay $9.99 to continue listening to music from Apple music. Everybody has been able to OWN the music they listen to. Fix iTunes so the artist(s) can control the price of their music? $1.50 for the label, $1.50 for the music downloading site and $0-$9.00 for the artist per album download. As for purchasing the odd song here & there, $1.00 for the label, $1.00 for the site & $0.00-$1.00 for the artist. There are 500 million iTunes accounts in the world, FIX IT ALREADY! Apple is making things terrible. Around every corner I find more people complaining about Apple/iTunes. I just spent a day & a half fixing my iTunes & iTunes Match is running at the moment, if this doesn’t work, I’ll give up & call their support team. “Here’s an iPod classic! Now you can’t have it, here’s an iPod touch with less hard drive space instead for more money!” “Here’s iTunes where musicians are paid pennies for an album download, now you can’t have it. Now you can “rent” music from our streaming site for $120/year,$9.99/month” As for a cell phone, I’m waiting for the iPhone 10, should be out early next year? I don’t think an artist makes much on their streaming site, but I could be wrong?

I’ve spent all day Thursday & most of today working on problems with my iTunes Match. I’m out until my FANTASTIC wife gets home to help me. I’ve been hung up on during a support call to Apple & put on hold for far too long. Yes I was polite, it’s not the call center’s fault & getting angry won’t solve anything. I’m sure they hung up on me because of my voice, that’s my guess? It started this week when they launched their new streaming site, oddly enough.

This will be really cool!

I agree with him 100%. But nothing will change with anyone being mad about the current situation for musicians. You can’t have it all for the consumer or all for the artists, there has to be a balance to it so everyone gets something out of it.

Phil Rudd is angry that no one in AC/DC will speak with him? I wonder why……………….OH, that’s right he threatened to kill someone!

The Simpson are renewed for 2 more seasons, why? I’m done with the show as of a long time ago. I’m 35 years old. I did an air band to the first season soundtrack in grade 6, I think they’ve expired “Best before 2000”

Pearl Jam covers Big Wreck? Did somebody else write this song? I just checked my “Albatross-Big Wreck” CD liner & saw no writing credits for any songs!

Velvet Revolver has released 2 albums. I can honestly say that only this song is the one I don’t mind. It does get old rather fast. They’re good at what they do, it’s just not for me.

Noel Gallagher sounds off on a few things.

I’d have to agree, firing John Gibbons would be a band aid fix. Everybody on the field is under preforming other than rookie 2nd baseman Devon Travis & OF Kevin Pillar. 2/9 players can’t carry a team through 162 games unless the name on the jersey is Bautista or Encarnacion, even that’s a stretch!!

Songs I like. “Fall Out Boy” skipping a few bands that I like but don’t know the song titles of?
