SINGLES & B-SIDES

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” then a ’70s rock compilation.

I woke up to that same ’70s compilation

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

If you have the album you don’t need a single from iTunes. A single on iTunes is just that, no B-Sides included? I’ve got 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides Most of them were bought on CD. A single & two B-Sides on most of them. Singles on iTunes are nothing more than a cash grab for Apple, who’s stock is on a steady decline from what I hear? I don’t need or want singles on iTunes, I purchase full albums that have the singles on them, so I don’t purchase them. If Apple wants to make money, sell a single along with the 2 or 3 B-Sides! I was never into marketing, but I think that would work? Here are some B-Sides you’ll never hear at the moment if you get your music from iTunes!

10 reasons why Nicki Minaj is hated. I’m not a fan of her, but she has her place WAY over there. I just avoid her at all costs

 

Can’t say I’m much of a fan of the music that came from the ’80s, but here you go! Most of it was more miss than hit for me.

Great idea! Here’s the catch though…….they’re expensive & BOOM there goes a tax hike, unless you can find them in a “Walmart” bargain bin. Politicians will have a tough time forcing this idea on the public? Could happen though.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Abortion

 

Who listens to “George Michael” on a drive back to Regina after seeing “Trivium” in Saskatoon? Mitch & I having a dance party!

 

So I guess they decided she was lying about her rape for fame, I don’t know anything about her, there is a good chance the court is wrong. No song by Kesha, since I know nothing about her music?

HOLIDAY SEASON & YET MORE SHOOTINGS?

I guess the victims didn’t have their guns with them to “protect” themselves? I guess it could be a terrorist attack? So they say on the news at this point? Not every American loves having a firearm with them & not every Muslim is an extremist/terrorist.

 

Doctors appointment this morning at the cancer clinic. All is well. Told me to take baby Aspirin & it might help to get rid of the minor side effects from the medications I’m on, maybe it’ll help with my dry mouth & I might not drink 2 liters of water a day. She also showed me my CT scan & explained it, all is well she said. There’s some water in my noggin but that’s OK. She also extended my time for the next appointment to June of 2017, instead of 1 appointment a year, it’s now every year & a half! Fewer needles being poked in me!

 

Today’s workout was brought to you by “The Beatles” all albums on shuffle.

 

Scott Weiland (former singer for Stone Temple Pilots & Velvet Revolver, was with Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts at the time he passed) Sad to see someone die but I don’t think his death was a shock? He had been dealing with drugs & alcohol for many years, constantly in & out of rehab. All of this was in the public eye. Velvet Revolver even made a music video involving his issues, while he was a member of the group.

On Stone Temple Pilots’ facebook page

Dear Scott,

Let us start by saying thank you for sharing your life with us.

Together we crafted a legacy of music that has given so many people happiness and great memories.

The memories are many, and they run deep for us.

We know amidst the good and the bad you struggled, time and time again.

It’s what made you who you were.

You were gifted beyond words, Scott.

Part of that gift was part of your curse.

With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.

All of our love and respect.

We will miss you brother,

Robert, Eric, Dean”

 

Cool story for the holidays. My mother-in-law was likely crying through part of it.

EVERYTHING on facebook is about the passing of Scott Weiland. Stone Temple Pilots became famous as a grunge band I guess releasing the album “Core” in 1992, out of San Diego.

For me, that’s a really good debut album. They released 6 studio albums & a Greatest Hits album with Scott Weiland & a 5 song EP with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.

Chester is the singer, not the rapper.

On Wednesday evening I came in to write the Thursday no blog thing, I open my internet browser & already there was a youtube video of the shootings?!?!? Did I watch it? HELL NO! Remember dignity, respect, & mourning? Today’s society completely abandoned it. No I’m not perfect but whoever threw that video on youtube is way more screwed up than me.

A storms a brewin’ between Miley Cyrus & Nicki Minaj. I don’t listen or really pay any attention to them. Nicki Minaj seems to be mentioned in the media quite often? She’s either difficult to deal with or knows how to promote herself well? Any news in the press is good news!

I played a TON of Madden football until the release of X-Box 360, I got the 360 for my birthday in January of 2008 & already received the latest Madden football for it as a Christmas gift in 2007. I don’t miss playing video games at all really! I would come home from an evening shift at work (4:00 pm-2:00 am) sit down & play a game of Madden 2007 on mute so as not to wake up Kim. My left hand is almost useless now.

Lamb of God cause circle pit on live TV. I’ve never understood “circle pits” a bunch of people running in a circle? Yes I broke my nose in a mosh pit in ’99, but crowd surfing is fun. I was to large to be in a mosh pit, that’s likely 1 of the reasons my nose is a little crooked. There’s another video within this link. I listen to this album on a daily basis as well as the new Finger Eleven album, they’re both better to me each time I listen to them.

I like both albums “a lot”!

Status update since I don’t really do that on face book. I woke up around 4am, couldn’t fall asleep, got up at roughly 4:45am had breakfast (2 glasses of fruit/veggie juice, watched some stuff I had recorded, exercised & now I’m here at 9:20am…………….and I’m really tired. I have increased my exercise somewhat minimum of 120 crunches, yesterday I hit 170, today 160. Two sets of 40 and a 3rd set of 40 or more. Along with pushups (40), yoga & planking. Other day’s are walking with my walker, practicing stairs, or riding an exercise bike for as long as I can if it’s not in use, which is pretty rare here.

I personally don’t use it in any form. Whether you like it or not, people do use it. Ask yourself this. Do you want people to hide it or go around care free? Do we want police officers who spend time on cracking down on marijuana users who get the munchies or breaking & entering? Just make it legal, we have bigger fish to fry.
