Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “S”, as in Stevie Wonder’s Greatest Hits & “Songs in the Key of Life” on shuffle….

What are the 2 things that tell me “Scandal” is fictional? The first is that it makes politics seem interesting. The second & biggest reason is they use cell phones…………..AS TELEPHONES! Nobody is constantly looking down at their phone? They TALK TO PEOPLE!

2 episodes of the Rock It Out Blog from Monday

I have never been a fan of the ’80s hair metal movement.

Mike Portnoy (former drummer of Dream Theater) left the band to be in his new band ‘The Winery Dogs’


All he got for “Threatening to kill” someone, & drug possession was “home detention”. Maybe I should threaten to kill someone so I can stay home & do nothing. Who’s with me, & who needs a vacation? Should we binge watch something on Netflix?


Sound like Josh Homme from ‘Queens of the Stone Age’

This is from the album they’re trying to sound like. I’m guessing they became a more well known band because Dave Grohl played drums on the entire album & played drums live with them when he could? That’s how I found out about them.

“The Agonist” release this year is my favourite of the 4 they have released! LANGUAGE!

Will Smith plans to tour next year with DJ Jazzy Jeff?


The ‘Star Wars’ movie will have a character named after a ‘Beastie Boys’ album


‘Bad Boys 3’ will be released in the next 12-16 months according to Will Smith


Finger Eleven shared it….

At this point, I’d be very reluctant to travel anywhere in the USA.


New version of Paul McCartney & Micheal Jackson’s “Say, say, say” inside the link. Original below.


Rock It Out Blog listening party LANGUAGE!!!!!

I don’t have a camera for a reason. I don’t like being told to “Come on squeeze in, be in the photo, it will be fun”. Well if it will be fun I’ll completely change my mind……..NOT! I don’t like being in photos, if I had a camera & was taking photos of others, that would really come off as flat out wrong! I loathe being in photos, especially now with an eye patch. I’ve heard people say “Take off the eye patch & stand up”. Why? Much easier said than done & even if that wasn’t the case, I’d still have no desire to be photographed, just leave me out of the photo & I’ll play nice.

Songs I like, “Seether” they’re OK, I don’t really listen to them much. Does the first song remind you of another band? I think I saw them years ago at The Distrikt on their first tour? I could be wrong? I didn’t pay for these albums or download them. I got them from a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, who has a cousin, who knows a guy that had them.

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?


Guitarist, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine & Audioslave


Jimmy Fallon & Joseph Gordon Levitt cover Rhianna as “The Old Time Gals” Barbershop quintet


New Pentatonix video/song from their upcoming release on October 16th

Hollywood Vampire Rock in Rio with Lzzy Hale & Alice Cooper, performing “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin. Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Jonny Depp both on guitar & Guns n’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan.

Really? The Pope plans to release a rock album, I think He may end up as the coolest Pope of my lifetime?


Audio link inside of “Wake up! Go! Go! Forward!” Not this song, totally different


New band “Wakrat” with former Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave bassist Tim Commerfield.


LANGUAGE!!! Not sure what to make of this song?

Cool video of a little girl fishing!!

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 “F”, as in Foo Fighters’ B-Sides. I’ve got about 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides, most of them (45?) are purchased the rest I got from a guy, who knows a guy, who has a brother that knows a guy who knows a guy………………………..

Kim wake’s me up this morning before she leaves for work & tells me to have a good day. I reply with something to the tune of “I will, at least it’s Tuesday”. She replies “No, it’s Monday sweetie” & right there she crushes my dreams.

Didn’t know & just don’t care that Miley Cyrus had a wardrobe malfunction at the MTV VMAs. Wardrobe malfunctions aren’t a rare/offensive occurrence now. I pretty sure most of the people watching whatever are immune to it now. “Yep, she showed a boob, what else is on?”


New “Deluxe” version of “Arcade Fire’s” album ‘Reflektor’ with 5 new songs.


We didn’t even watch the Emmy Awards. We were watching ‘Scandal’ on Netflix.


Ryan Adams covers the entire “1989” album by Taylor Swift


Pentatonix shared it on their facebook page so here it is all. I’m looking forward to this album!

Foo Fighters bumped from their Emmy performance.


Babies being cute in their Halloween costumes. Shared by ‘Walk off the Earth”


Any fans of “Chvrches” out there? I like them, but they’d likely get lost in the shuffle. Stream the 2nd album.

Advice Lamb of God would give to themselves when they were younger

I was not a fan of ‘Green Day’s’ “American Idiot” in the least. It became a Broadway Musical & now a documentary about the making of the album? I like Green Day, but I thought out of the 5 other albums I have, this would be considered one of if not the worst album in their catalogue.


10 worst movies based on a TV series

Songs I like, “Radiohead” just the first 3 albums are all I listen to.

There’s 2 songs from their first 3 albums, in order. They sound completely different now. They lost a TON of fans & likely gained just as many.

The most anticipated regular season baseball 4 game series between the Blue Jays & Yankees in New York was rained out last night. I was looking forward to planting my butt on the couch to watch the first of 4 games. It’s been postponed until tonight, then a double header on Saturday. We’ll see if it happens tonight, the forecast in New York doesn’t look good as the play by play announcers said.

Kim’s been sick, she’s been home Wednesday, Thursday & today. Everywhere I look there’s phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, etc. I think our tissue box is near empty. When either one of us goes down, we both do. I went down for 4.5 years & took Kim with me. When she’s sick, I have to step up my game!

We sat on the couch to binge watch Scandal on Netflix. We started it on Monday & we’re about half way through the 2nd season. Ellen Degeneres was right on the money with that show, not because Portia is on it later on, but because it’s so good! We’re watching it some more today.

Kim’s getting better. I guess we’ll see if she’s up for celebrating a friend’s birthday tomorrow?

Do you want to see Pearl Jam in Mexico for free & 2 nights in a hotel? Here’s your chance!


I’m guessing this got so high on the charts because Bruno Mars is a pop genious?


Batman vs. Superman will feature more Batman than Superman. I can’t wait for this movie to be released!


Elvis Costello release. This is the only Elvis I listen to!


It is a pretty archaic way of thinking, in my opinion.
