I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the third album “Never Wanna Die”, then “The Damned Things”

I exercised/stretched to “Big Wreck” the album “In loving memory of”

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

Remember that old mantra we learned as kids “Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Totally wrong!  A broken bone will heal in time, when you speak to someone you have to pay attention as to what you’re saying to someone new, or what might really offend a family member or friend.  “The pen is mightier than the sword!”  Still not true but much closer to reality.  A person might take words poorly, intended or not intended.  If it just comes out by mistake, you’re hooped, better start apologizing ASAP.  Hopefully the individual can let go of what was said.  Fortunately, I have great friends & family, who have forgiven me for things I said in 2011 & 2012.

Wait for at least a month of Big Wreck talk after February 3rd.  New album is released that day & that may last for quite a while.  Probably March 3rd when the new Ed Sheeran is released.

Brewster doesn’t like loud noises, he gets really bad anxiety, we have small puppy doses of Valium for him during thunder storms & such.  The building manager & a fire Marshall were testing every smoke detector in the building.  Brewster & I spent the afternoon at my parents place.  Brewster would have been in really bad shape otherwise.  He shakes like a leaf & will pee inside on occasion.  When or if we give him a pill he becomes “stoned”.  He eats a PILE of food and will trip & fall over at any given time.  It’s also tough on his liver.  We try to avoid giving him a pill.  I usually put him on my lap but not coddle him.

 

Smarter than me, I think I’ve only heard of 2 or 3 of these groups?

Time for the Presidential candidates to sink very low against one another & bash each other publically.  I’m glad to live in a different country!  “What can YOU do for these groups?  I don’t want to hear what the other candidate can’t do, what can YOU do?”  Then you hear a political answer where the person tip toes around any question on any answer or throws the other person under the bus.  So many celebrities are choosing not to vote.  Fair enough, I don’t vote here in Canada?  I’m not about to decide who is the lesser evil?  In the almost 19 years that I’ve been able to vote, I’ve voted once & I might as well have thrown a dart at a spinning dart board when choosing who to vote for.  Waste of my time!  Did I watch the debate?  NO!  They’ve done enough mudslinging to each other already.  I’m good, & in another country.

I don’t think America is a great country, they are the most powerful though.  “With great power comes great responsibility”.

I don’t mind these new Metallica songs, & I’m a skeptic, 2/2 so far for me.  Whenever it’s released it will be 33-34 years they’ve been around a release an album that I might enjoy?

For my 2 cents, metal seems like a very small niche market & can be strongly hated by fans of other genres.

 

Looks as though Royal Blood are also in the studio from what I can tell from a Facebook photo.

I HOPE THIS WORKS, IF IT DOESN’T……SORRY I’M TRYING DIFFERENT STUFF.

I tried to fall asleep to “ The Police” a 14 song Greatest Hits album. Didn’t work so I tried roughly ½ of a “Simon & Garfunkel” album from a 3 CD box set I own, didn’t work either. I finally fell asleep to “Rage Against the Machine” the self titled album.

I woke up at 3:00 am & tried to fall asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” no dice, already at 23 degrees celsius in here & it will just get warmer. I got up just before 4:00 am.

I didn’t exercise yesterday. Today I exercised to “The Watchmen” all 5 albums on shuffle!

Aw crap. Foo Fighters bassist was playing with “Sunny Day Real Estate” before joining Foo Fighters.

http://loudwire.com/former-sunny-day-real-estate-posies-bassist-joe-skyward-dies-57/

The drummer, William Goldsmith, also joined Foo Fighters but didn’t fit Dave Grohl’s standards during the recording of Foo Fighters 2nd album “The Colour & The Shape”. Dave Grohl re recorded the drums for the 2nd album & William left the band or was asked to leave, I’m not sure what happened? Sunny Day Real Estate got back together later on. Nate Mendel did not rejoin Sunny Day Real Estate.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Weekends we don’t do much. Friday I watched a spring training game the Jays thus far are 9W-1L-1T. None of that really means much, but Jose Bautista & Edwin Encarnacion have yet to play a game as far as I know. Saturday we had a sleep over here, after finally seeing our friends with 2 kids. Chris, Laurie, Annabelle, & the newest addition 5 month old Henry. Corey dropped Hannah………………………………….off, which means “Uncle” Chris gets the couch, while Hannah & “Auntie” Kim get the king size bed, after we watched some “Winnie the Pooh”. Little kids are cool. We have fun with them, then their parents take them home. Sunday after Jolene picked up Hannah, “Auntie” Kim was pretty tired after the 5:00 am wake up call by Hannah. Kim had the cookie batter they baked ready to go by 7:30 am! Kim held the couch down while I cleaned up what I could. We just plopped on the couch most of the day. We went out for supper at “Perkins” a hotel restaurant that was likely full for Sunday brunch. I just need to get out of the house once a week. I swear we were the youngest people there for supper at 4:15 pm. Then the older crowd trickled in, 30-45 years older than us or the workers at the restaurant. That made me feel old! They were coming in as we were leaving????
