MERRY CHRISTMAS/HAPPY HOLIDAYS/ENJOY SOME TIME OFF OF WORK!

Being politically correct is really not for me, but there it is for you!

 

Nothing but Thieves – Self Titled.  I’d put this as my number 1 album of the year!  This is not a metal album!

 

Stitched Up Heart – Never Alone.  This & Alter Bridge are in a dead heat for number 2 on my list

 

Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

 

From here on everything’s tied for 3rd place!

Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.  LANGUAGE!!!!

 

Ben Harper – Call It What It Is

 

Candlebox – Disappearing in Airports

 

In Flames – Battles

 

Third Ion – Biolith

 

Opeth – Sorceress

 

Sum 41 – 13 Voices

 

Anthrax – For All Kings

 

Highly Suspect – The Boy Who Died Wolf LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  The more I listen to this album, the more I like it!

 

The Pretty Reckless – Who You Selling For?

 

The 1975 – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

 

NOTHING WRONG WITH THESE ALBUMS, JUST LACKING SOMETHING.

 

Tremonti – Dust

 

The Agonist – Five

 

Chevelle – The North Corridor

 

Green Day – Revolution Radio

 

OLDER ALBUMS, LIVE ALBUMS & EPs

 

Scream – Fumble (Dave Grohl’s group before Nirvana)

 

Oasis – Be Here Now & Definitely Maybe

 

Barenaked Ladies – Live @ Red Rocks

 

Taylor Hawkins – Kota EP

 

Lamb of God – The Duke EP

 

Portal – Blood Red Tape.  Independent group from Alberta, Canada, I think?  They remind me of Tool.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

 

Vinyl Hero – 7 days on a train EP.   Another independent group from somewhere in Canada, I believe?

 

Candlebox – Love Stories & Other Musings

 

It’s not that I don’t like EPs or Live albums.  EPs leave me wanting a full album of at least 10 songs & live albums are pretty much a live album of Greatest Hits.

 

ALBUMS I HAVEN’T PURCHASED YET LISTEN TO ON APPLE MUSIC

 

Diemonds – Never Wanna Die

 

Diemonds – The Bad Pack

 

Metallica – Hardwired to Self-Destruct

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Bruno Mars – 24K Magic

I’d have to agree with the review.  There is nothing I should like about this album.  In the end, I love it & I don’t know why?

 

Boston – Boston

 

The Damned Things – Ironiclast

 

When the Holidays are over & Kim gives me the OK, I’ll purchase these albums.  If Apple goes under my purchased files are mine.  I, personally refuse to “download” streaming music aka Apple’s not taking away my music!  It’s a free country use a streaming site however you like.  Of course I’ll buy these gradually, unless we can make it rain with iTunes gift cards in January……………I doubt it!  Only took Metallica 33 years to release something original that I like & listen too.  Hahahaha!  I have 2 other Christmas albums.  Those aren’t buy now albums.

 

Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!

 

My questions for anyone reading this.  What were your preferred album(s) this year?  Also, how would you classify Alter Bridge?  Are they rock, metal or right on the line between both genres?  I really want to hear from anyone reading this.  I’m not the judge of what’s good or bad.  Maybe you’re not a fan of rock or metal, that’s fine with me, I used to be completely against music with a distorted electric guitar involved, so please let me know?

P.S.  Everyone has a hate on for 2016.  Each day you wake up with a clean slate.  The decisions YOU make that day will dictate how the day goes, & some decisions will be made by others that will affect you.  Make your decision every day to focus on what makes you & others happy aka let’s make 2017 FANTASTIC!

Yes, Monday was a day off here. I had some friends over from out of town/province in the afternoon. Was good to have most of us from University together, just lacking a few people.

My back is just an annoying pain today, nothing serious. I stretched it out & did a minimal amount of exercise. Just dialed things back a bit until I’m all better. Can’t jump in with both feet after two weeks being sidelined on the couch with a bad back.

Trade deadline for baseball was yesterday. Blue Jays ended up with 3 different pitchers, not bad, but not what I would have liked to see. I was hoping Jose Bautista, R.A. Dickey & Josh Thole would be gone. They’re not & fair enough I don’t run the team, I’m nothing more than an intense fan. If the club house is in good spirit, good enough for me. If it ain’t broke, don’t “fix” it.

After last night’s 14 inning loss 2-1 the Blue Jays are tied with the Boston Red Sox for 2nd place in their division 1 game behind the Baltimore Orioles.

Maynard James Keenan, Tool singer, has added more dates to his book tour. That tells me, no new Tool album until next year at the earliest. I’m at a point, as a Tool fan, where I just don’t care. If they really wanted to, they could have recorded an album & released it once the lawsuit over the album art was over. They didn’t think ahead is all I can say, & whenever it’s released it had better be REALLY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/maynard-james-keenan-book-tour-upcoming-memoir/

So “Green Day” is releasing a new single on August 11th. Will it be any good? Once they released the album “American Idiot” I didn’t really care about their music. I was disappointed with the singles. When I think of Green Day this is nowhere in my thoughts. Fair enough though. I don’t have to like what they release, they do. If they don’t like it, why would they be doing it?

http://loudwire.com/green-day-new-single-bang-bang-august/

Are we saying “Goodbye” to AC/DC?

“We are currently hard at work putting the final touches on the album, which has unfortunately forced us to push back the start of our tour and miss some previously announced festival dates. We’re sorry to miss these shows, but we will be announcing touring plans soon… “ – The Pretty Reckless

So there is an album!!! AWESOME! I thought it might just be a single?

“This new album is almost done? Personally I’ve worked harder on these songs than anything I have ever put my mental energies into.. It has leveled me and I sincerely hope it does the same to you. We started writing it months ago in LA, and organized the best grains of sand from ALL of the grains of sand that we’ve collected over the past year during our travels around the country and the world. After we sorted out our findings in LA we flew the sand over to Colombia and spent 4 weeks collecting air, energy and knowledge that we would use to weld our sand into a giant boulder. We took our new fusion boulder back to Brooklyn and spent the summer breaking it back into tiny grains of sand that have a different color and new spiritual presence so that we could build a beautiful castle and then finally we photographed it from every angle so that it could last forever even after the tide washed it away. And pretty soon you’ll be able to listen to those photos of that castle made from that boulder that was made from all the sand we’ve collected from around the world once we have it framed. I can see the finish line. You should start preparing. Recommending plywood for your windows and plenty of extra batteries and candles. Goodbye Mister Asylum.” – Highly Suspect

I really liked their debut album. Can they make an album without language in 7 of 10 songs?

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had stage 4 brain cancer, I survived I’m fine. I didn’t really know I had cancer until I was cured aka I don’t remember much of 2008 at all. Living with ALS would likely terrify me. If you’ve got even $5.00 to spare this guy could use it….

Is gender flipping the new thing for reboots? My question is; Are movie writers getting less creative? “Ah, we’ll rehash this one! People will eat it up!” I saw that movie 32 years ago, got anything new?

Opeth is available for preorder on iTunes lead single with preorder, full album release September 30th

It just hit me there’s a TON of good stuff coming this year music wise. I’ve already grabbed 15 albums this year one is a live album & doesn’t count. Another one is Scream, the band Dave Grohl was in before he joined Nirvana! I checked & I know have 3 on preorder & 2 without a release date or preorder available.

All of that & photos of Royal Blood in the studio on their Facebook site!

LANGUAGE!!!!

Big Wreck also had photos on Facebook of them in the studio!!!!

As for Green Day, we’ll see? Good thing Foo Fighters are on hiatus & Tool is taking their sweet time. I see myself binge listening to their albums?

Consequence of Sound celebrates 25 years of the film “Silence of the Lambs”. I still have problems watching anything with Anthony Hopkins in it. Brr! Right down my spine!

MONDAYS ARE DIFFICULT!

SURPRISE! PLANS CHANGED! The internet was fairly quiet today, so here it is.

I fell asleep to “Scream”the album “Fumble”

Yes, that’s a young Dave Grohl. “Scream” is the group he dropped out of high school for & was a member of right before he joined “Nirvana”.

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a post today. My wheelchair was supposed to go in for a cleaning & some minor repair work. The second I woke up my stomach was doing some weird stuff? I felt sick. Thought I’d have a bucket beside me all day? I feel fine & I’ve had breakfast that stayed down. Kim called the company for my chair & canceled the appointment for my chair to go in. Better off safe than “sorry”. I’ve got my chair & I feel fine. I guess we’ll schedule it for another day. I’m leary about working out today though, just in case…better to be safe than covered in vomit.

That short time of 2 or 3 days off really makes my muscles sore. After 200 crunches, then things feel OK. I do my squats, 70 leg lifts on my back, then crunches. Followed by 70 leg lifts on my hands & knees, then the push ups that just about kill me. Squats & push ups are by far the most challenging things I do. Squats leave me breathless for a few minutes & push ups are always last or else I don’t have the energy left to do anything else.

Professional sports don’t have a gay problem. The straight individuals in charge have a problem! They can’t accept that not everyone is the same. Yet, somehow Ty Cobb was a notorious jerk, also known for violence and robbery. Yet he’s in the baseball Hall of Fame?

Music rip offs

Another suggestion from a reader. I looked them up & Chevelle was recommended, I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. “Stellar Circuits” one 5 song EP & 2 singles on iTunes. I haven’t bought anything, but I might?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver…………………& this is why Quebec won’t abandon Canada. It’s like opening a can of worms. Quebec is a big part of being Canadian!

LAGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alter Bridge shared it……………..new album in September I hear?

I got Batman vs. Superman last night from iTunes since they had the “Ultimate Edition” I was planning on buying, available on blu-ray & DVD July 19th and also for renting on iTunes that day.

The Pretty Reckless shared the iTunes link to this album…

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/going-to-hell/id1114229616

A FINE LINE

I fell asleep to first “Ben Harper” the new album “Call it What it is”

Then “Scream” the album “Fumble”

Dave Grohl dropped out of high school to join this band, before joining Nirvana.

I’m not a huge fan of punk music. I believe there are 4 albums on iTunes, this I the only one I’ve bought & like. I think there’s one other one I need to preview again before I make the purchase?

I exercised to “In Flames” all albums & EPs on shuffle. I looked at my T-Shirt & figured “I haven’t listened to them in a while, let’s workout to In Flames.

Not everything in life is right or wrong, you know this as much as I do. In certain situations there’s large gray area. Do I know if I’m doing the right thing to beat, beating cancer? Nope, but I’m trying & I will likely be better, but how much better will I be?

Anyone can do what they think is right, but there’s always the possibility that it wont turn out for the best. I’m not a gambler, but life is a gamble. Just when you think you’ve got it, everything can flip upside down. How you react to these situations is what others will think of you. Remember, you can’t please everyone all of the time. That would be far too much effort with very little gain, you might end up not liking who you are. If you’re happy, your family & friends are happy, I’d call that a success! It can still get screwed up though. I always have this thought in the back of my mind when I see a sketchy situation coming “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. I didn’t hit rock bottom at all, although I did have my own pity party. “There are millions of people” worse off than me!

What do I call myself, not a hero or victim? I don’t care for either one of those words. I’m EXTREMELY lucky & alive to tell you about it.

Until I hit rock bottom or fly really high, there’s always someone worse off than me or somebody doing much better than me. I’m in that gray area, & it’s pretty comfortable! I don’t want to stay there though, that would be boring after a few years. Foo Fighters named their 2011 album “Wasting Light” because Dave Grohl doesn’t want to waste his time here. I now feel the same way, that’s why for 5 days a week. I go as hard as I can aka I like to get up early & stay up late to accomplish as much as I can/want.

Let those who review, do their thing!

I can’t wait for Roctober (Yes, I just made up that word & added it to my spell check) at the Casino!!!!!

I got the new Tegan & Sara album last Thursday evening on preorder from iTunes. One song file wouldn’t download from the cloud. After trying a few different things I settled on having a 9 song album instead of a 10 song album.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & CANCER TALK, ALONG WITH POP CULTURE

One share on Facebook from each reader would be greatly appreciated! I don’t make any money from this so I don’t “Boost” a post on here.

I fell asleep to – The new “Lacuna Coil” album “Delirium” that was released last night. Female fronted metal group from Italy. The Entire album.

Then I fell asleep half way through the new “Rob Zombie” album “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”

LANGUAGE & EXPLICIT IMAGERY!!!!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csUf0MAUIs4

I exercised to “The 1975” the album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week. Remember this was a 4 day week for me Monday was a holiday; 6000 crunches, 420 leg lifts, & 240 squats.

I exercise my core muscles mostly. When I do my leg lifts on my back the entire point of that exercise is to keep my abdominal muscles flexed while slowly lifting & resting my legs as well as breathing throughout the routine. I always count in pairs doing my leg lifts on my hands & knees or on my back. 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3 etc. So when I say I’ve done x number of leg lifts, that’s the amount on both legs. On my hands & knees, every muscle kicks in, my abdominal muscles, my arms, my legs, my shoulders, etc. I’m at pretty much 60 squats, 1500 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 5 days a week unless there’s a vacation day or “holiday”. Next week I want to add sets of 20 push ups to the mix again, I know I can do at least 20 a day, so I’ll see how I feel after that?

I’ve combined my love of music with my stage 4 cancer survivor story. If you read this at all Fridays are the blogs with the most talk about cancer. If you prefer the music chat it’s here too. I don’t expect anyone to open each link, it’s there if you’re interested. This is also meant to be interactive, let me know what you like, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see more of on the blog or suggest an exercise I should try?

Power went out yesterday just before Kim got home & of course Brewster freaked out 2-3 hours of him panting & shaking at the front door. I just held him at the door & tried to keep his mouth closed so he couldn’t pant.

Thursday’s episode of “Netflix & Chill”

Sorry it was “Lacuna Coil” album “Delirium” that was released last night. A little heavier than I had anticipated. Still good though, at least with one listen thus far.

Who gets to take an afternoon off to be at a baseball game at 4:00 pm eastern time in N.Y.? It baffles me that they have a decent crowd for games at that time?

So I was watching “The Ellen Degeneres Show” while she interviewed Hillary Clinton. They’re both tired of the campaign, who isn’t? At least when it’s all said & done they get to vote. As Canadians we just get to watch the 3 ring circus called Donald Trump until, hopefully November. If he gets elected I’ll be EXTREMELY worried! Face it, nobody gives a hoot about Canada, we’re pretty much known as that cold country above the USA. I don’t really follow politics at all, & I don’t vote. I’m not telling you who to vote for, I’m saying I’d vote for Hillary Clinton ASAP! If Trump is elected, I’ll suggest to Justin Trudeau that Canada should build a wall at our southern border & make the USA pay for it? Remember Trump, you’re “…really rich…”

For what it’s worth I prefer “Cauterize” over “Dust” both are really good though, if you’re into this type of music.

Favourite “Rage Against The Machine” songs? Can I just pick my 3 of 4 favourite albums? I own 3 of them on CD? POSSIBLE LANGUAGE WITH RATM?!!!!

I’ve never really been able to get into “Wilco”, think along the lines of “Blue Rodeo” watered down or “Phish”. I guess it’s a free download so have at it if you like?

I quite enjoy Paul Rudd movies. That thunder storm last night “sure escalated quickly”.

The recent release by Slipknot is just far to heavy for me. Quite a few others may call it their favourite Slipknot album. For the record I borrowed the latest album from my brother, listened to it a couple of times, gave it back, & deleted it from my iTunes. What I’ve heard from the 2004 release,Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses, sounds pretty good.

In Flames shared it on facebook, I’ll have to check them out. Not a metal band, but a rock band. Much Music videos are gone I don’t like what’s on the radio, so facebook is my information highway for new bands!

2 singles & a 4 song EP. ^^This is one of the singles, sounds good to me I’ll put it on my list. I have other stuff to listen to before I listen to a new group. I’ve already bought two albums this week & have two more this month on pre-order.

I got my pre-order “Mister Asylum by Highly Suspect” last night & OH, MY that’s a good rock album! Kim was online for pretty much 4 or more hours after work with Apple support & almost finished fixing iTunes Match, but our internet bit the dust late last night. The woman watched a video from the album I had pre-ordered, that doubled, random songs from it on my iPod, & said to Kim “My that’s a different video”. Kim responded “That’s my husband’s music”. Fair enough 7 songs on the 10 song album are marked as “explicit”. I don’t always listen to the words unless they’re terrible, really good or that I can relate too. More the music or melody. Yeah, weird to hear from a guy who wrote lyrics in a group, I know. “Highly Suspect” is labeled as indie rock, but sound nothing like other groups in that stupid sub-genres, The Strokes, Rah Rah (Regina based band we played with at my old high school when they were starting out). I was in grade 8 at high school with “Rah Rah” member Joel Passmore, good guy, despite me not really knowing him that well.

Thank you Consequence of Sound another new artist for me to check out & put on my list to buy later if I like it. Sound Cloud link to the song inside the CoS link.

Dave Grohl interview on starting Foo Fighters. This is a snippet of the full interview of course there’s LANGUAGE!!!

New Darius Rucker video aka Hootie from “Hootie & The Blowfish” that name was meant to be the entire bands name. Same with “Alice Cooper”! Both became the front man’s name by popular opinion. There’s no “Led & Zeppelins” or “Pink & Floyds”

Yes, Dave Grohl plays drums while regular drummer, Taylor Hawkins, sings. Brian May of Queen plays on this studio version of the song.

This is why I follow the Rock It Out Blog! Members of Nirvana, Bad Brains, The Germs, & Scream play a punk rock show to 40,000 people. LANGUAGE OF COURSE, IT’S LIVE & DAVE GROHL HAS A DIRTY MOUTH LIVE!!! Out of the 8 studio albums only 3 songs have a 4 letter word in the lyrics, one of them is a rare B-Side Kim ordered for me from Best Buy only available in the USA Best Buy stores in 2005 or 2006?

There’s a show I wouldn’t attend. Nirvana was offered to play this tour/show & declined for good reason. Metallica at the time was a group of 2, 3, or 4 alcoholics & Axl Rose was/is unreliable. http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-metallica-tour-anniversary/

If Facebook goes down so does this blog it might end in a few years? I’m not really a big fan of communicating through Facebook. If Apple or iTunes goes down, for me that will be “..the day the music dies…”! “….I dig those rhythm & blues & THIS SONG…”!!

Songs I like. “Matchbox Twenty” had to skip a few! DON’T JUDGE ME!
