Friday, November 15th
I didn’t do much today other than try desperately to sleep, that didn’t happen. We have tickets to see lamb of God on Saturday, but the weather could be awful. The weather will be the determining factor. It’s supposed to rain over night then snow the entire weekend. I’d like to see lamb of God, but I’d also like to be alive to see the CFL playoff games on Sunday! Does the CFL really want to compete with a billion NFL games on a Sunday? Most Canadians, especially in Toronto, follow the playoffs and watch NFL instead? Toronto is really not a CFL town! Regina will be off the hook, crazy next week! Grey Cup madness will “…take over this town….” WARNING METAL!
I’ll be in Dad’s home theater on Sunday watching the eastern final between Hamilton and Toronto, then the western final in Calgary between the Calgary Stampeders and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. If the Riders win, we are going to the Grey Cup game, if not it’s the same day as my parents 35th anniversary and we’ll be watching the game in the home theater again on November 24th!
One Bad Son from Saskatoon is in a competition to play as an opener to Hedley at the Grey Cup half time show. I swear the singer’s voice is quite a bit like Axl Rose of Guns ‘n Roses. I really don’t care much for Guns ‘n Roses. Thanks for the suggestion Rydell but I lump G ‘n R with the awful 80s hair metal bands in L.A. I tried to listen to “One Bad Son” and I bought a few songs off of iTunes, but I rarely listen to them, yet Pantera and Megadeth seem to be good IMO! How we’re we in a band together? Probably because we are sexy. I’m not even drunk and I’m solving problems! “Hold my beer and watch this” says every Canadian male before they do something ridiculous! Here’s a few songs by One Bad Son for you to check out if you like!
Vinyl Records will be gone soon. I think “Vintage Vinyl” in Regina will start a steady decline in sales and eventually close. I hope I’m wrong, some people like buying Vinyl records. CDs will be around for a while, but EVERYTHING will be available on iTunes and Netflix for a lower price. Even I have jumped on the iTunes train. CDs take up too much room and it’s hard for me to read the tiny liner notes in the booklet that comes with CDs! Local bands and TOOL I have no problem buying their CDs to support local artists, and TOOL has nothing on iTunes, so CDs for them and iTunes for other artists!
This is one of those bands I’m on the fence about. A group that I’ll shelve for a while and revisit later on! Metallica has had it’s time and I only enjoy the “Master of Puppets” SONG NOT the ALBUM, “I Disappear” from the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack and the album with the Symphony backing them
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNELBM8bPGE Jimmy Kimmel on Toronto mayor Rob Ford! Why can’t the police just arrest him with all of the video evidence? He’ll get his day in court………………………hopefully! I guess that’s a strike against Canada, glad I’m not a Toronto citizen!
This one is for fans of Metallica and Motorhead, not for me though! I am so not a fan of Metallica, I’m picky about the music I listen to!
“There’s always someone else having a worse day than you or I”
“Don’t judge anyone until you’ve been in their shoes” I learned this the hard way, but I learned it!
“Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You’ve just got to get their” Today has not been a terrible day.
“You’re not perfect so don’t try to be. Just be happy with yourself and everything else will fall into place”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Apologize for your mistakes and learn something from them”
