I fell asleep to “In Flames” the 2000 release “Clayman”

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

I couldn’t really exercise this week.  More stretching along with 300 calf raises & 300 leg lifts for the week.  Sets of 20 until I reach 60 for the day.  Yet to hear from the physio therapist.  Each passing day seems like a step backwards, & this started mid-November so I’m WAY behind!

Well I guess this is the day, the inauguration day of a terrorist.  I may live in Canada but I’m not very comfortable with Trump as the President to our direct south!  So buddy up it may be a situation of safety in numbers?  I think there were some protesters there yesterday?


I had to do some stuff in the kitchen today.  Just feeling odd emotionally, I needed to hear some “Rage Against the Machine” if you would like to hear it, it’s here but full of LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Suitable title for what may come.


WOW, there’s a specific genres!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know any of the bands on the list?  I think “In Flames” are considered a Swedish melodic death metal group?


Mark Tremonti talks about “Alter Bridge”


This version of the song is a Grammy nominated song


Now the hits just keep on coming & I feel older with each one.

My dad took me to a taping of “Switchback” when I was a wee little lad!  Here in Regina.


I’ve had a TON of time to listen to my music!


LANGUAGE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just find the actual video sexist!


Korn did something to help prevent suicide & anti-bullying organizations!  Buy a T-Shirt & help out!


Sunday, February 5th 2017 I’ll be doing something other than watching the “Super Bowl”.  Me no likes!  Maybe the half time show?  I don’t know who’s playing at half time.


You know whatever Alex Jones says is “fake news”


It’s a bitter sweet day for North Americans, more so for America likely.  On the downside the Obama’s are leaving the White House.  On the upside it’s Friday.  Those don’t really balance out……………………………at ALL for me!


I’ve heard nothing but bad news for the future of the DC comic book movies, which is sad.  I really liked Batman v. Superman & Suicide Squad.  Apparently Ben Affleck is ready to leave the movie franchise.


Trump, Trump, & more Trump

I completely agree with Billy Joe Armstrong’s comments inside this link.


In other words, pick a TV channel & there’s a 95% chance the inauguration will be on it.


Stephen Colbert!


Wayne’s World returning to theaters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


New Big Wreck tune!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or the Blue Jays could package OF Marvin Upton Junior, 1B Justin Smoak & a prospect into a trade with another team for one of their 5 needs.  I hope the “Rogers” company can back that financially.  That trade is over $9,000,000 + a prospect/ “a box of chocolates”

I still can’t imagine how my cousins & uncle feel. Most children will watch their parents die, but my cousins haven’t reached the age of 30 yet. Cancer is not genetic. I have a hard time agreeing with that statement? So it’s a coincidence that my grandmother died in 1999 of cancer, I was diagnosed with cancer, my grandfather died of cancer while I was in my therapy/rehabilitation program, & now my aunt has died of cancer? That’s a freaky coincidence????

This coming week I intend to get back into my routine of exercise & enjoy the memories I have of my aunt. She’s gone, it sucks………..she did live life to the fullest though, I have multiple fond memories of her. I say this with no disrespect intended. I can’t let the past slow me down, I have to keep moving forward while remembering my past.

That was my intention, my back completely disagrees. I can’t stand up straight, or even move my legs without my back being incredibly sore. So no exercise until I get this kink out of my back, just a pile of stretching

Kim’s parents & aunt came Friday. Kim’s sister & brother-in-law have the spare bedrooms……………………not so much. We went over to their backyard for BBQ burgers, salad, & a couple of wobbly pops. Saturday, dad & I went to the football game. Got to watch the Riders lose their 3rd of 3 games this season! Perfect, now nobody will see the Riders coming! Sunday, we went to Sherry & James’ house for brunch. They should all be home now or very shortly. Kim’s aunt is in Melfort which is on the way to Birch Hills.

I’m going with the reason that I’ve never heard of them, until I heard news they were reuniting about the same time as Guns n’ Roses.

New single from “The Pretty Reckless”. I like this group! I can’t wait for their 3rd album!

How rockers reacted to the killings in France

I’d make a fortune on this Jeopardy! category

In Flames, September 23rd, DVD, an album or both?

You’d think a band as big as Anthrax, who’s been around for so long, would be a headliner for almost every show they play? Especially a lineup like this? I have 15 studio albums of theirs, yet they’re near the bottom of the totem pole?

The Needle Drop review of the new Blink 182 album

I would have reacted much worse, that being said, she did have an 18 month old child with her & it was getting dark. I would have replied to his remark “Hey, I find whatever you are offensive! GET OUTTA HERE BEFORE I THROW UP ALL OVER MY SAGGING BOOBS!”

I was listening to the new Candlebox album & it just seems better everytime. No it’s not metal at all. This album was released on April 22nd

3 kids playing Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”

Look at that Megadeth gets a new/full time drummer & now they’ll need a temporary guitarist. One step forward & one step back. “Step by Step” they’re going no where fast.

Streaming music is not acceptable to all people. I’m not the only one in Regina even that’s against it! You do what you want I’ll pay for & own my music.

The sooner “Royal Blood” releases an album, the better! When you get a phone call from Dave Grohl asking if you’ll hit the road opening for “Foo Fighters” you must be doing something right!

I guess “Blink 182” has written & recorded 5 songs with their new band member.

Final trailer for the upcoming ‘Star Wars’! I’ll wait until the hard core fans see it 10 times in the theater, while complaining that it doesn’t hold up like the previous films.

Have fun voting Canada! Then you can whine & complain about why the person you voted for can’t do what they promised.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on the Canadian election. LANGUAGE!!!!

I like “Walk off the Earth” their originals & their very unique videos of cover songs!

I think I should watch some NHL since the team I cheer for (Montreal) has yet to lose a game (6W-0L) & the basement dwellers (Toronto Maple Leafs) are in 7th place in the same division out of 8 teams (1W-3L-1Overtime game) Bahahahaha!

Yes, I bought “Coheed & Cambria” album ‘The Colour Before the Sun’ & “Pentatonix” album ‘Pentatonix’

This makes 5 albums I’ve purchased this month, with one more to go. Ian Fletcher Thornley’s solo album. After that album is released, there aren’t any release dates that I know of for me?

I was waiting for Kim in our vehicle & decided to turn on the radio. I don’t listen to the radio usually, & it’s never Regina’s Rock Station, it’s light rock or Jack FM where they play it all. I heard “Chromeo” & turned it up to 11!

Barenaked Ladies shared it…..

Taylor Swift gets interviewed by Ryan Adams who recently covered Taylor’s album “1989”

It will be a difficult year for me to do a Top 10 list of the albums released this year. I already have a list of 22 albums this year, only the Muse album got old fast. The music is good, the actual lyrics…………………………………..not so much. So that narrows the field to 21 & the year’s not over yet. I’ll do away with “My Morning Jacket” as well. Great band live but the studio albums really pale compared to a live show. That brings it down to 20, I guess I’ll have to do it by process of elimination.

Songs I like, “Stevie Wonder” I have “Songs in the Key of Life” & a “Greatest Hits” album.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “C”, as in the new “Clutch” album ‘Psychic Warfare’. Didn’t get to focus on the music much since I was exercising. What I heard was good for me anyways.

Which Championship would be the most difficult to win? I’d say a league with a TON of teams. Not the CFL with 9 teams. MLB, NHL. NBA, NFL, The Masters, MLS, The Olympics to name a few. I watch the CFL and the Blue Jays games. The CFL is quite boring for me this year after a boring year last year. I used to watch all 4 games every week, now I just watch the Roughriders to see who will beat them by how much. I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible. Kim hates it, as do most people. I really don’t like watching Blue Jays in :30, I like watching the entire 3 hour game. Hockey I watch very little to none of unless Montreal is in the playoffs, that’s my team followed closely by the Edmonton Oilers. If my parents & I get the cold shoulder for our Saskatchewan Roughrider season tickets in the new stadium in 2017, I’m likely to get rid of them, but we’ll see what the future holds? Not having to pay for season tickets would save us a TON of cash, & I wouldn’t be subjected to rain, wind or an awkward sun burn.

I have to mention this. I was watching the news last night & the mass shooting spree in Oregon is the 41st shooting this year on school grounds. I feel for the families & friends of the victims always, but I’m becoming a bit numb when I hear of this type of occurrence in the USA. It’s just more redundant than it needs to be! For me it’s kind of like “Ah, I’ll wait a month for something like this to happen again in the USA” Now I’m saying give up the guns USA. Everybody who wants one has one, & that isn’t helping ANYONE in ANY WAY! How many times does this type of thing have to happen for someone, anyone to take a stand on this issue? It will take more than one person though. Maybe a crowd of protesters marching to the White House against guns & the current laws on them? The whole topic is spiraling out of control already. 41 TIMES ON SCHOOL PROPERTY THIS YEAR & it’s only October 1st when this took place. If I was a student in the USA & on the brink of getting a scholarship, I wouldn’t want it for free tuition. I’d ask whoever the scholarship is from if I could have a bullet proof vest & guarantee that I’ll be alive to graduate? 264th shooting this year in America. Makes me want to grab every American gun owner & shake them until they wake up?!

Maynard James Keenan biography coming next fall! But still no word on an album release from “Tool”? Might as well round it up to a decade at this point? Nothing since 2006!?

I grabbed 3 albums last night yet to listen to 2 of them I can tell you the new Trivium album “Silence in the Snow” is really good. I fall asleep to metal music, weird I know. If you liked anything from “Shogun” on you’ll enjoy this album. Even the title track was written during the studio session for “Shogun”. I also got the new Clutch “Psychic Warfare” & the new Sevendust “Kill the Flaw”

I always prefer having a physical version like a CD in my hands. I no longer have the physical space for that. Maybe I end up spending more money through buying music on iTunes rather than getting it from a streaming site, but I know in the end I’ve paid for the album & it’s mine. CDs have dropped in price to try & keep pace with iTunes. I could buy the album on CD for the same price. iTunes is just really easy. I bought 3 albums & put them on my iPod at 11:00pm last night. CD & vinyl stores were closed at that time. So I sat here & the albums I wanted came to me, now that’s very convenient. However you get your music is your choice. I like digital music personally it isn’t scratched, so it shouldn’t skip & it goes into my pocket with 1000+ albums already there, & it’s already connected to our home stereo. Also I can take it to our vehicle & either plug in a USB cord or listen to it through my headphones so as not to bother Kim on a long trip. It’s your choice as to how you get your music, but for me I’m all for digital music.

With all of these “free” streaming sites for music, the stores will either collapse completely or have to adjust to surviving in a different way, rent CDs maybe or pay a monthly fee to go in & get the albums you want? I think the vendors will likely close their doors & shut down. Which will be sad to see. “Let’s boost the economy, but make everything free or significantly cheaper.” Music is free but gas is on the rise?

Don’t ask me why, but I still like the pop album from Taylor Swift. I find it to be a well crafted pop album.

10 things you didn’t know about Oasis’ 1996 album “What’s the Story (Morning Glory)”

This story is getting old. How long are gun owners going to allow this type of thing happen every month? Even The President looks defeated.

15 years ago Radiohead released “Kid A” an album of just random noise. 15 years ago I listened to “Kid A” twice & all but gave up on the band.

First 3 albums for me & that is all.

I love Muse but “Drones” was a big let down, so was their first album “Showbiz”. I really like “Absolution” & “Black Holes & Revelations”. The music on “Drones” I like but the lyrics were fairly boring. I guess they get a pass for 2/7 studio albums.

Surprise, TONS of other front men have issues with Axl Rose

1987 my brother was born & Guns n’ Roses released their debut album, I’m not a fan of Guns n’ Roses. That’s a TON of stress for me as a 7 year old! Bahahahaha!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “T”, as in Trivium on shuffle.

Kim & I are watching “Scandal” on Netflix. We Just finished season 3 Thursday night. Great show, one problem, writer/creator “Grey’s Anatomy” & “Private Practice” lady. She’s a hot writer at the moment but I swear she gets writers block every 10 minutes & “Ooo, now they have sex”. I like “Scandal”, but it is really getting old fast. That’s the exact reason I don’t watch “Grey’s Anatomy”. I liked “Private Practice” too, but I don’t miss it. All of these shows are getting old around every corner somebody’s having sex with someone, for no reason at all?

Thursday’s Rock It Out Blog. GREAT TOPIC!!!!

Gay marriage seems very similar to marijuana issues at the moment. They can do either legally or illegally? What would you want the police to be more concerned with? Pot smokers that want a bag of chips, same sex people living together? Or the guy down the street who will snap in a week & go on a shooting spree?


Blue Jays baseball Thursday night, they’re all but guaranteed a playoff spot if they go 5W-5L & the N.Y. Yankees go 8W-2L for the last 10 games of the regular season then the Jays are out & I highly doubt that will happen?

If this is true, when is this tasty nugget being released? All I see on iTunes are a bunch of “Slash” albums & EPs he’s sang on?

Today/Friday, September 25th Rock It Out Blog LANGUAGE!!!! When we were onstage, no matter what rock band I was a part of. Nobody swore on stage unless it was a cover song. We didn’t care who said what, it didn’t matter, freedom of speech, Mitch did once & just didn’t want to do that again.

John Lennon, Taylor Swift, Ryan Adams, Father John Misty, etc. ^^

Songs I like. “The Refreshments” They were never a big name act, I think they were in the 20s on the Much Music Video Count down for 2 weeks in the ’90s. Then they disappeared. I have one CD, I think “The Refreshments” on iTunes are a different group other than this album?

Yep, they did this theme song!!!!

I still listen to this album. I flip through my iPod & I see ‘The Refreshments’ & then I think to myself, “Hey, I haven’t listen to that in a while?”

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “H”, as in “Highly Suspect”. This is one of the 3 songs out of 10 without language.

My super group is already partially together, “Them Crooked Vultures”! Dave Grohl (Nirvana & Foo Fighters) drums, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) & Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) guitar & vocals.

Who would I add to that already impressive line up? Ian Fletcher Thornley (Big Wreck/Thornley) & Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge/Slash/The Mayfield Four).

Myles Kennedy would be the lead vocalist & guitar when needed. Ian Thornley would be 2nd guitar to Josh Homme. Anyone & everyone would be a back up vocalist! That, for me, would be a mind blowing line up!

Who is in your super group? I want to know more about music, who is your favourite artist(s) or Super Group?

I spoke about Green Day releasing this documentary, here’s NME’s take on it.

When I heard this as a single, I knew instantly that I didn’t need to purchase this album, it may have ended up being an album I’d buy & never listen to?

Watch Stevie Nicks perform with Foo Fighters!

Singer Bruce Dickinson hates the first/self-titled Iron Maiden album.

Father John Misty covers Ryan Adams’ cover of Taylor Swifts “Blank Space”

This song has been everywhere with the release of a new solo “Chris Cornell” album. I checked it out on iTunes & wasn’t interested in the rest of the album, nothing sounded similar to the single. However, it did lead me to his prior/3rd solo album that was released in 2009, when I was in the hospital & didn’t hear of it. I liked that album & bought it for a WHOPPING $5.99 on iTunes. In a round about way the single worked! I bought a Chris Cornell album! Maybe it wasn’t his recent release, but it worked. FYI Chris Cornell is the singer from grunge band Soundgarden as well as a previous member of Audioslave. Here’s the current single, then one song from the album I bought. These 2 songs sound nothing like Soundgarden or Audioslave.

Thanks to my mother-in-law Shirley Olson for digging this up for me!!!

I’m not really a fan of Jonny Depp. I am intrigued by his upcoming film “Black Mass”. I’m in the midst of watching a Netflix documentary about Whitey Bulger, a Boston gang banger who killed TONS of people. “Whitey” on Netflix, at least on Canadian Netflix.

Ooo, I like Ed Sheeran! and an album announcement for release October 9th

Paramore shared Top 10 best pop-punk songs of all time.

These are on the list & I like them. Everyone will have a different opinion though. I get a bit worried when I see these types of lists. It’s usually 1-3 people that are telling you what they think. One of the reasons I don’t do reviews, it’s just what I think of the song/album. All I know is, if I like it.

All the power to her, country is the “in” thing at the moment. It’s the thing most people want to hear.

24 years ago “Guns n’ Roses” released ‘Use Your Illusion’ I & II. At least they chose 2 good songs to cover!

Arcade Fire & I don’t mix. Like water & oil don’t mix.

OH, Our Lady Peace, how I wish your songs were more like the first 4 albums…..

I kinda think Jonny Depp is doing stuff to try & remain relevant now? This is one of the 3 movies I like that he’s in.

Did I not post this yesterday? I like Muse, this album “Drones” was quite disappointing for me. I must have expected too much from it?

Ryan Adams reveals his cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Song inside the link. He covered the entire ‘1989’ album.

October is shaping up to be my month for releases! Trivium & Clutch on the 2nd, Pentatonix & maybe I’ll get the Coheed & Cambria album on the 16th, Ed Sheeran on the 9th, & Ian Fletcher Thornley (of Big Wreck & Thornley) on the 30th.


No new Ed Sheeran tune?

No new tune from Ian Fletcher Thornley? The snippet I heard from his solo album is more acoustic with some banjo thrown in.

Tuesday night, baseball, peanuts, grapes, water, & beer. Pretty good life! I don’t really touch alcohol during the week, but sometimes you just have to have a beer while watching a sporting event from the comfort of your couch.

Tuesday was my back to reality day exercise & trying to eat healthy. 420 crunches & 30 minutes of yoga. Today, 420 crunches & 40 push ups. Thursday, who knows?

Off the top of your head, how many songs can you think of that weren’t singles that made music acts huge or had to play them live at every concert? I thought of 3 B-Sides & 1 album track instantly.

I’m sure there are more but these are the 4 I thought of instantly. I didn’t cheat & use google, this is just what I thought of. Weird that the first 3 were B-Sides to singles, that means radio D. J.s either turned the vinyl over or skipped through the 3 or 4 song CD to grab a B-Side.

Barenaked Ladies just played their song at every show, got hit by a pile of Kraft Dinner & eventually told fans to bring Kraft Dinner to the concert to donate to the Food Bank.

2 of my many favourite songs by Foo Fighters are a B-side & an album track!

This “Iron Maiden” tune sounds good. I haven’t preordered it yet. iTunes release September 4th.

No albums on preorder at the moment other than Trivium & Clutch release on October 2nd for both albums.

I guess Ian Thornley (Big Wreck) is recording/releasing a solo album? I missed that one? My bad.

Songs I like, “The Nylons” I began singing the lower/bass part along with this album when my parents moved into their house. My voice is very different now, there is no way I could sing that low now.

Wednesday’s Rock It Out Blog

1st inning 2nd batter.

Kansas throws at his head in each of the next 2 at bats. They hit new Blue Jay SS Troy Tulowitski, then eject the rookie in the 8th inning. I guess MLB umpires can get away with anything? Blue Jays never retaliated after or before the warning, yet the field manager gets ejected from the game & suspended for 1 game. Then all of this nonsense & ballyhoo happens…

8th inning rookie pitcher suspended for 3 games, ejected immediately. If your on the mound to hit a batter, you throw at his torso or head, not his leg/ankle.

I saw “Montage of Heck” on youtube. It was either a fake or VERY over hyped.

If it becomes illegal here, I’m out for digital music. Vinyl it is! Buy it, rip it to a different software, & throw out the album. I’m not touching any streaming music site!!!!

The Zombies to release new album. I know this isn’t their song.

Another Halestorm solo contestant for the song ‘Mayhem’

This mornings workout included this album…..

Finger Eleven’s album “Five Crooked Lines” is available world wide & definitely worth a listen!

Duran Duran working with Lindsay Lohan?

6 Trivium albums in 6 minutes

Unsettling scene cut from the Kurt Cobain bio-pic ‘Montage of Heck”

Songs I like, “New Meanies” The last time I saw them was in ’99. Immediately after the show I went to the hospital to see my grandmother who died of breast cancer that year.
