FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & EMAIL

All of these “social media” sites require one thing, email! You join a social media site & TONS of people totally forget that they have an email. I always check both, why? Because not everyone has a facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. account. Everybody on these sites has an email account! How often does anyone send you an email via one of these sites? I do because some people are a touch stubborn & refuse to use their email. What did you do before the invention of www.myspace.com? You used email probably. I get it, it’s a personal choice. Just remember that not everyone likes these sites. I use facebook mostly for these blogs & a handful of people who have problems with their email account.

This music blog was for those who like similar music as I, & those who don’t want to be on a social media site. If it wasn’t for this blog, I’d be long gone from facebook!

Last night’s baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays 78W-59L & the Boston Red Sox 65W-72L prior to the game was a nail biter for me. Tied 1-1 into the 10th inning. Then the Toronto Blue Jay bats woke up & everything bounced Toronto’s way to win 5-1 in the end. I was nervous, I may have peed a bit on the couch. (Shh! Don’t tell Kim?)

I know baseball’s not for everyone, I get it. This has been an exciting time for the Blue Jays though! First time the fans have seen meaningful baseball in September since the early ’90s!

Today’s workout was brought to you by Dream Theater’s ‘Images & Words’ album!

Godsmack’s tour for 2015. I’ve never really listened to them other than seeing the “Voodoo” video on Much Music. I didn’t care much for that song so I never paid attention to them.

If Bruno Mars does the half time show at the Super Bowl, I might watch it? Last time I watched was because Prince did the half time show in the rain. I guess I did watch last year when it was Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I don’t think there is anything on that list that I’m anxious to hear ever?

Remember the ’90s when Edgefest would tour Canada? That was AWESOME! Despite me breaking my nose in the mosh pit. During Big Wreck’s set & this particular song.

I had never seen Keith Urban play bass? Can we put him among Geddy Lee (Rush bass/lead vocal) & Les Claypool (Primus bass/lead vocal) now?

How to anger Spider-man fans. Either way is fine with me, but it’s not how the original Spider-man comics were written. That’s what will cause the anger of die hard Spider-man fans. He quit Spider-man, so why does he have a say in what happens in future Spider-man movies?

Songs I like. “The Philosopher Kings” Canadian R & B group from the ’90s. Yes, I own 2 of their 1st CDs. Looked up the 3rd on iTunes, & I didn’t like it.

Metallica on charity drive for flood victims in Texas.

I’ve just recently became aware of this group, here’s a purchase sale on their website
http://addloud.com/product/cd-4-pack/

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.

^^A guy who doesn’t take his lifestyle for granted!

Alex Lifeson of Rush hopes to play new shows after what has been called their “final tour”
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-06-05/rush-alex-lifeson-more-shows-after-final-tour

I like Rush very talented. I like their stuff post 1985. Sounds like a better mix on the recordings to me a lot like Primus, very talented but I can’t stand Les Claypool’s voice (the singer/bass player).

Muse ‘Drones’ album track by track. This could possibly be my album of the year? This, Lamb of God or Barenaked Ladies?
http://www.teamrock.com/features/2015-06-04/muse-your-track-by-track-guide-to-drones

Part 9 of Barenaked Ladies in the studio. The making of ‘Silverball’ LANGUAGE AT THE START!!

Song below.

I don’t care who’s doing what with anything related to ‘Star Wars’ just don’t screw it up. No more Jar jar Binks either.
http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/josh-trank-on-why-he-left-star-wars-spinoff-20150605

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.

Big Wreck is Canada’s Soundgarden. Weird guitar tunings, weird time signatures and both could easily pull off a cover from the other group. Yes, I like both groups.

Scott Stapp (Creed singer) is angry about Alter Bridge. Mark Tremonti (guitarist) says he’s busy with Alter Bridge & his solo project.

Dave Grohl’s everyday routine on Ellen.

Very cool mash up! Guns n’ Roses & Foo Fighters. ‘Sweet Times o’ Mine’

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. A bold & brave move by a person in the public eye.

Weird but cool at the same time. Guy plays & sings “Yesterday” by The Beatles while having brain surgery.

The Tragically Hip, you can’t get anymore Canadian than them. I like them but I’m not a typical Canadian who’s considered to drool at just the uttering of their name. I own 4 CDs out of 13 albums. They got together in’83 and released their S/T album in ’87. I own 4 of the earlier albums.
“Up to Here” released in ’89 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OKHwnkaU5Y

“Fully Completely” released in ’92 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhpezwGtDEg

“Day for Night” released in ’95 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aL4WCiaGBI

“Trouble at the Hen House” released in ’96 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE2joQsWXJg

I bought “Fully Completely” first then went backwards and bought “Up to Here”. I don’t listen to these albums on a regular basis, probably 3-4 times a year.
