Apparently punk & metal music calm you down. Then they show a video of “Limp Bizkit”. WHAT?

Can PBS really afford to suspend a series because of Ben Affleck’s ancestors owning slaves? Don’t most family’s have that in their history?

Streaming music has too many red flags for me. Sure you can listen to streaming music on Apple. You are literally putting money into a radio or jukebox. Once you’ve heard the song you have to keep paying for it, or else it’s gone. All of these streaming sites get me a little worried because as a music fan I want to own my music. I don’t want to wake up on the 1st of every month & say “Well time to pay for that radio station subscription again”. If a band goes on tour to promote their new album they need to go to the little spots, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or Alberta. Anywhere else I’m not going. I’ll go 2.5, 8, 9 or 6 hours away by car to see a concert. If it’s not within that area, I’m not going. I would hope they figure out how to pay artists for their craft with people downloading it from iTunes? You’ve always had a way to purchase or own your music. 8 tracks, cassettes, vinyl, CD & digital formats. If streaming becomes the only way to get music, I’m out.

I really don’t see the point in getting angry & talking about whatever behind someones back, that won’t solve anything. Sure “flaws” are easy to find in others & being blunt is usually not the best way to go about things. Anyone could easily find “flaws” with me, I’m certainly not perfect & never will be. So why bother being angry at all? I don’t want to be that person ever again. I wasn’t like that before, so I can’t explain why I was like that in the previous link to this blog?

There is a difference between being blunt or being rude. I just put those 2 together, & it’s not needed. Likely the 2 least favored qualities put together!

This was part of Canada’s response to the “grunge” music in Seattle in the early ’90s.

Unfortunately I don’t see the murders in Charleston changing anything. Mass shootings in a high school, outside of a mall, elementary school, movie theater & now a church. So where are you safe & not constantly looking over your shoulder? LANGUAGE IN JON OLIVER LINK!!!!

Just take the flags down already!

I likely wont be posting a new blog tomorrow, Kim has an E.D.O. I’ll be hanging out with Mrs. Kim Fraser!

Songs I like. “July Talk” I really liked them for about 4 months, then it kind of wore off? I still like them but there’s other stuff I prefer.

7 years ago I passed out at work with brain cancer. Tuesday February 5th 2008. A day I’ll probably never forget, an instant game changer. The day I really want to remember is Thursday July 26th 2012. The day I was discharged from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.

I have nothing against these artists, they’re doing what they want, and I don’t know them personally. I’m not a fan of their music though. I was waiting for these guys to be nominated in the big name categories they fit in to……
