ALREADY TICKETS TO 4 CONCERTS THIS YEAR!!!!

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the album “Broken Crown Halo”

I exercised to “Baroness” the double album “Yellow & Green”

“The Odds” were great way back when. I’ve got their first 4 CDs. I’m good though with that & yes I still listen to them every now & then. I saw them live when I was in high school. I don’t think I need to see them again.

Masterpiece review of David Bowie by Consequence of Sound

I don’t know much about the NFL, I’d have to go with Joe Montana on this one as the greatest quarterback, at least in my lifetime so far.

I know where I won’t be, since I don’t have a current passport & I’m not a fan of “Rammstein “ in the least, never have been. If you like them & want to go to Chicago, cool with me!

Why do the members of “Slipknot” wear masks? LANGUAGE!!!!!

Yes, my passport is expired, I’ll likely never have a license, I exercise 5 days a week for at least an hour & I’m 36 years old now & have to really watch what I eat. That’s fine with me, but I do worry about Kim she needs a break…………………….from everything!!!!!!

Hopefully good news for the Toronto Blue Jays although he won’t be expected to play until May. When he was injured & wasn’t coming back last year, he was leading all of the rookies in almost all categories. I want to know what’s going to happen with Ryan Goins? His defense is far to good to sit on the bench as a utility infielder.

HAPPY 30th ANNIVERSARY TO ‘BACK TO THE FUTURE’

I need to watch these movies again. All 3 are beside me on DVD, maybe this weekend if the Blue Jays lose this afternoon, which I hope they don’t or all of this hype has been for nothing. 1 lose in any of the next 3 games for them & the season is over for them & I.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Pentatonix” & some “Into Eternity”

The 2 best things about being “Auntie” Kim & “Uncle” Chris, is that we get to teach kids bad habits such as using your sock to clean up a tiny spill of liquid. “Uncle” Chris gets the left over, slobbered on, cold Kraft Dinner/Mac & Cheese!

Yeah, odd/weird what’s with the water? That & the fact that I instantly thought of Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac are the 2 things I’ll remember from that show.

Fall Out Boy shared it…This album was a bit underwhelming after “Save Rock n’ Roll” which is a really good pop album.

Finally, “Room 333” on www.youtube.com

I’m still not sold on “All That Remains”? I saw them live in Saskatoon opening for “In Flames” still not sure. I think it would be one of those things I’d buy & never listen to.

“The Glorious Sons” shared it….

From “Walk off the Earth”

NEW WOTE VIDEO!!

Follow a young girl named Ellie though a world of paper mache non-acceptance. Please share with the world.

For more background on the concept of this video, please read this note from our co-conspirator and director Ben Rispin:

“So, we made a video that encourages Trans youth to be themselves. We made it with with my dear friends in Walk Off The Earth this past summer. Today this video is public to everyone ( It was a Mashable exclusive until this morning).I had a flurry of announcements yesterday and I didn’t quite get to express just how proud I am of this project and everyone involved.
When one of my oldest buds Gianni Luminati Nicassio asked me to come up with treatment ideas for a song off their new record I was definitely flattered and over whelmed. WOTE’s videos are so well thought out, choreographed and well-rehearsed that I didn’t think I’d be able to produce / write / direct something worthy of what they do every day.
I got an advance copy of their album and started listening to the record over and over. A bunch of songs spoke to me but a song called “Alright” hit me like a ton of bricks. The message that the lyrics conveyed gave me goosebumps. I knew this song was really special.The song inspired an idea I pitched about possibly doing a kids show-themed video with bullies. The climax would see bullied kid literally exploding the bullies heads into confetti explosions in some sort of final number. Basically a lot of the visuals you’ll see in the video today. Gianni liked it and told me write it up. I immediately called my brother Cole, told him the opportunity and got him on scripting the idea and flushing out the story. Cole knocked it out of the park, the band approved and we got to work.
A couple weeks later I was out for drinks with Gianni and he mentioned Ellie. A transitioning girl that was a dancer that he’d like for the lead role of the video. He spoke of how she inspired him so much that he’d like the theme of the video to support trans youth. I was blown away by the idea. I was blown away that the band wouldn’t think twice about putting their names on the line for something they believe in. I know they’ve always been supportive of all communities, but they have a wide variety of fans from all walks of life ( basically the whole internet ) and would no doubt get trolled by haters. I didn’t bring this up. The cool thing about working with the WOTE crew is the band are visionaries and they’ve either weighed the consequences or just don’t care what they are. In this case, it was the ladder. This was important to the band and I couldn’t have been more impressed.

We called Cole with 11th hour script changes, made the adjustments and found an amazing location at Hamilton Theatre Inc. We didn’t have much budget for the crew at the theater, but they were more than accommodating. Paddy, Dustin, and everyone from the theater got on building sets, recruiting extras and fully committed to supporting this video in anyway they could. Awesome team, awesome people. With them, we were off to the races.
We enlisted the great The Butcher Shop to make our exploding heads and masks. Everything was coming together. When you’re dealing with a project like this it’s usually running around, freaking out and not really stopping and thinking about what’s going on but somehow we made it to our first day of shooting.
When I met Ellie on that first day of shooting is where everything got put into perspective for me. Ellie is the brave little girl who stars in this project. Never have I met someone like Ellie. Her soft spoken words, smile and genuine soul could warm the coldest of hearts. She’s quiet but clearly strong. The happy, approving nod she gives when she liked an idea filled everyone with confidence that we were making something special.
I haven’t had much experience with the transgender community. I haven’t. The first person I’d ever known to be publicly transgender was my friend Laura Jane Grace. Having read her story I saw how hard it was to grow up trans. How confusing that must have been for her. I can’t possibly know what it’s like, but the least we can all do is try to understand and support.
I guess what I’m getting at is I hope this project can help anyone be themselves at any age. I’d love to see a world where there aren’t 30 something back woods dudes like me scratching their heads when their friends announce they’re transgender. I’d love to see all communities embraced,accepted and treated equally And I’d really like to thank the WOTE crew for letting us be a part of this special, special video. Love you guys.”

How on earth did “Rammstein” get mentioned in the same sentence as “Black Sabbath” & “Iron Maiden”? Different strokes for different folks.

Fair enough, with Pete Rose out of baseball (most hits in a career, over 4000), now if I hear of a steroid user getting in to the baseball Hall of Fame, that’s a very mixed, message! The single season home run record is still 61. Not 66, 70 or 77. This means no Sosa, McGuire, Bonds, Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, etc. There won’t be many inductions for players in the next few years, I hope? For me & possibly other baseball fans what the steroid users did is far worse than gambling on baseball. There’s a lot of players coming up for the Hall of Fame, which I hope means “YOU’RE GONE! YOU CHEATED!”
