WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

Pass this link around to whoever might enjoy it. They don’t have to know me personally. If they read one post & don’t like it, that’s fine.

Let’s get something else out of the way & put it away. I’m what U2 has been looking for, & I let the dogs out! It wasn’t me but it’s about time somebody takes responsibility for these monstrosities!

We watched the following movie Monday night. Bad reviews on iTunes that I totally disagree with. I really liked it! A very good court room drama. I highly recommend it, especially for fans of “Primal Fear”

14 unheard Nirvana songs.

Corey Taylor finds pop music insulting

Cell phones. One of the first things you see on screen at a movie theater is an announcement to turn your phone off. I think that should be at least stated by any band before anyone preforms, probably wouldn’t be that big of a deal. I had a cell phone before I had cancer. I can’t remember who I was seeing or what city it was in? Security at the door was checking everyone for a phone. First they’d ask, “Do you have a phone? If so does it take photos or videos?” I replied “Yes it does”. “Could you please take it back to your vehicle? Otherwise we’ll keep it.” “Yep, no problem”. I already had my phone turned off at the time, taking it back to the vehicle was fine by me, I had 0 intention of using it. I didn’t get cancer that day nor did I die without my cell phone. I haven’t owned a cell phone since Tuesday, February 5th 2008, but I’m here & I’m fine.

I don’t disagree with someone having a cell phone. It’s a personal choice. If you have one please be responsible with it. There’s a time & a place for them, it’s not in a movie theater, music concert or any other public venue. If it rings or vibrates & you have to take it, maybe excuse yourself from your group & take the call elsewhere.

I kind of like the changes iTunes has made for it’s users. Not iTunes Match, terrible software with the launch of Apple Music. They’ve added influences & similar artists to whatever album/artist you’re looking at, that is in your iTunes library! I like that. If it’s someone I’ve never heard of I’ll preview it.

Home Sharing is quite similar to iTunes Match. I don’t recommend iTunes Match though until they fix whatever they messed up with the launch of their streaming site. We no longer pay Apple $27/year for iTunes Match. Match will stream all of our music in my wife’s library as well as mine, on any device, at least when it’s working properly. We could stream our libraries on her cell in the vehicle, our home stereo, etc. Home Sharing does not do that. I have an iPod Classic, I can’t air play my music with that iPod. Kim can with her phone, but only her iTunes library. If we want to play our iTunes in our vehicle, I have to connect it with a USB cable to our vehicle radio, no big deal. Kim’s cell I’m not sure about? As long as I have my computer on, iTunes open & home sharing on, I can play my library on our home stereo.

I have 5 “My Morning Jacket” albums. I had no clue as to who they were when I saw them in Edmonton in 2003 opening for Foo Fighters. Seeing them live is MUCH better than buying an album with the vocals covered in reverb. Here’s an album song I heard in 2003, then bought the CD at the merchandise booth. Imagine this being played by a group of headbangers!

Songs I like, “Nat King Cole” his voice is really good!!!!!

This first song I don’t own, but you might know it?

My Grandmother would sing this quietly to me when I had trouble sleeping at my grandparents house. I was Irene in this case.

NO DOUBT/WINNIPEG

Jack White on Jimmy Fallon last night.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/watch-jack-whites-scorching-performance-on-fallon/

I might pick this up in the future from iTunes.

 

I think I’ve shared this on here? I’ve seen it at least and it’s very cool.

OK, we’ll a quick review of No Doubt. Ska music from California, which you probably know already. The album “Tragic Kingdom” released in 1995 blew up with the song “Spiderwebs” all over the radio and Much Music at the time.

This was followed by the 2000 release of “Return of Saturn”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yqru5UXWGY

 

Then the 2001 release of “Rock Steady”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtTj4cramPM

 

Then singer, Gwen Stefani, went solo to teach us all how to spell bananas!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kgjkth6BRRY

 

Then back to a No Doubt album “Push and Shove” released in 2012

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb_zZ3xItPI

 

They got into some hot water over the original video of this song. So here’s the song just showing the album cover.

How many times have I listened to the Big Wreck album that was released on iTunes at 10:00pm last night? 5 times thus far. Kim tells me she’ll pickup the CD on her way home today. They’re not a household name in all of North America yet? Only in Canada so I’ll buy each CD until they are!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pghhg40gTs4 The title track.

 

We were in Winnipeg from Friday and got home around supper time last night. We were visiting the Gagnon family, ¾ of them. My uncle was in his home town of Montreal tending to his side of the family and their family matters. We went to visit my aunt, Diane Gagnon, my mothers sister as well as my 2 cousins and my mother who’s there helping my aunt through her chemo therapy for her breast cancer.

 

Cancer is not genetic but coincidentally 4 of us on my mother’s side of the family have had it or have it now? I guess we have bad luck?! They caught my Aunt’s cancer early, but her chemo sounds terrible! Skin peeling everywhere, multiple sores in her mouth so it hurts to eat, and her feet peel and feel as though they’re burning. I was sleeping most of 2008, so I wouldn’t remember that if it had happened.

 

For a little over 4 weeks I was in a coma and I was given a 5-15% chance of even waking up. I was never expected to even walk with a walker again. I guess I got lucky.
