Music from this weekend!  “Foo Fighters”, “The Struts”, “Boston”, “Norman Greenbaum”, “Young MC”, & “Muse”


The BIG 40th wedding anniversary of my parents was on Saturday.  Yes, I’m 38.  They had me the same year they were to turn 21, I came along before their 21st birthdays.  My birthday is in January.  My brother came into the mix in 1987.  Yeah, 7 years between Mitch & I.  He’s bigger than me, especially now that I’m in a wheelchair!  Hahahahaha!

I don’t speak well so I wrote the speech & Mitch read it, added a few things & delivered the speech at the party.  My immediate family means the world to me, there’s no way I could live in a different city, province, or country.  My in-laws celebrate their 40th anniversary next weekend.  Unfortunately we won’t see them until Christmas.

It was a lot like our wedding for me.  Lots of visiting not enough drinking at the OPEN BAR!!!

Sunday was at my parents’ house.  Make your own bun which, drink whatever, & watch the Grey Cup if you like.  Kim’s not a football fan & with Calgary & Ottawa in the game, nobody really cared to watch it.  We went around 1:00 pm then came home around 7:00 pm.  Good times & a TON of people to catch up with!

Sunday was for the friends & family who didn’t have to travel home until Monday.


If you don’t believe in climate change, can I ask you why?



That’s all until the New Year.  Be safe & have fun.  I’ll catch you on January 2nd 2019.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, & enjoy some time off of work!


MUSE – SIMULATION THEORY released Nov. 9, 2018.

I really like Muse, the album “The Resistance” was their first time doing an almost completely electronic album.  Good in theory, for me it was a very weak album.  If there was ever a progressive pop album, “Simulation Theory” would be it.  This album really reminds me of U2’s “Achtung Baby” & I love that U2 album.  Everybody is saying all of the Muse albums sounded the same.  Sure, some of them did.  This is a band I’ll likely never see live, so it will likely remain on my bucket list.  All I hear is “You gotta see them live”.  This is their 8th studio album.  If you were to put U2, Coldplay, the first 3 Radiohead albums, with a dash of Dream Theater in a blender, you’d have Muse!

You can’t make everyone happy all of the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Purple” followed by “Blameshift” the album “Secrets”.  Woke up to pee & put on “Eagles of Death Metal” the album “Zipper Down”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I like kids coming over.  Kim loves it as well!  I like seeing any of our friend’s kids!  Kids really don’t care what anyone thinks.  I’m good with babysitting, then the parents get to take them home after we’ve taught them what not to do.  If I get confronted by someone who blames me for teaching their kid something I’ll reply “Oh, it wasn’t me!  What on earth are the Grandparents teaching this poor innocent child?”  I’m pretty sure I’d be a very immature father if I had my own child though.  The kid would likely grow up a little wonky?  This is my way of saying “You’re welcome”.  This could be one of my reasons for not having kids?  Be sure to watch the entire thing!


Well, no In Flames date in Saskatoon this time.  The closest to Saskatchewan they’re coming is Calgary & Edmonton.  Save my money I guess.


5 questions with Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) and Clint Lowery (Sevendust)



Stephen Colbert spoofs Rachel Maddow’s report on Donald Trump’s tax return from 2005



If you like Guns n’ Roses with a more modern edge, you may enjoy Diemonds.  Guns n’ Roses aren’t my thing, but Diemonds are FANTASTIC!!!!!!  Guns n’ Roses are closest thing to Diemonds I can think of.

Diemonds have 3 albums out at the moment on iTunes.


I love the Despicable me movies.  Can’t wait for this one



Songs I’ve performed with the handful, 3, groups.

Chris Messer & I are out for chicken wings after work one day & a song comes on, he pipes up & says “You guys should do this song!”  I reply “Are you crazy?  I can’t hit those notes?”  He tells me “Sure you can”.  We tried it & it hurt my throat the first few times, then I got it.
