Not much going on here.  My chiropractor told me to do as little as possible this week.  Couch & TV.  So really nothing.  That’s great for a few days, it gets very boring after a few days.  It’s been a lot of resting since mid-November with some stretching involved, BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

He’ll get over it I’m sure.  I miss singing & playing guitar, I got over it.  My voice is crap but I can work/practice my guitar.

20 years ago Finger Eleven released their debut album “Tip”.  I really like them & my brother’s a HUGE fan.  We played this song live a couple of times.

 

Pentatonix shared it.  It would be nice to hear some new music from them, although I thought the same thing about Tool in 2010 or 2009.

I’ve got some “Seether”.  I wouldn’t call myself a fan though.

LAST SEASON FOR AMERICAN IDOL

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Muse” the album “Absolution”

 

Squats aren’t that fun. Muscles I haven’t ever thought about are killing me today. I’ve done a total of 100 squats this week. That’s enough squats for the week. I changed it up & did 50 push ups & yoga to stretch some painful muscles. I’ve got the mind of someone in their 20s & the body of someone in their 90s. Yet I haven’t turned 36 yet?

 

We all knew American Idol wouldn’t go on forever. I’m assuming people got bored with the platform. Not all of the winners went on to stardom, yet kids continued to audition. I couldn’t point out what went wrong other than it’s been around for 15 seasons, & FOX wanted something new? That’s just my guess. It’s weird to think some kids don’t know a world without American Idol? It’s a great marketing tool, but how many winners of the show went on to large success? I could only name a few at best. Where did the 2014 winner go?

These are just funny, hidden baseball tricks that make the opposing player look like a fool. Yes, I’ve been on both sides of these plays.

 

I saw some photos of some artists. “Kongos” is finishing the vocals for their album. “Linkin Park” is in the studio Chester Bennington was shown recording vocals. “Alter Bridge” are writing/rehearsing for their 5th album & will be in the studio “soon”. Looks promising for new music this year. If anyone is coming to a place near you, I encourage you to go out & support your preferred musician. This free music is hurting the industry. I should get out to more shows as well. We have an actual money tree, but it just grows leaves, not printed money……………BAD, MONEY TREE, BAD!!!!!!!!

Another 4 day week for me! Kim has an E.D.O. on Friday & then Monday is a long weekend day in Canada, Victoria Day. I guess that’s 2 short weeks. I’ll probably post an entry on Sunday until the end of the week?

Everybody likes different music. Many people I know like either metal & nothing but metal in up to 2006. Eccentric music, pop music, my brother likes “Ace of Base”, “I Mother Earth” & “Trivium” I like ANY music that is instantly catchy be it pop, country (without the twang), soft rock, rock, classic rock, hard rock, metal & it’s sub genres, but little to no rap. The more diverse an album is, the more I enjoy it. Foo Fighters’ first 3 albums are all over the map, Big Wreck’s “The Pleasure & The Greed” Halestorm’s “Into The Wild Life” & Country music’s Zac Brown Band’s “Jekyll + Hyde” are all very diverse albums. All of that being said, an album doesn’t always have to be diverse for me. Some times I want someone just screaming at me & some times I just want to chill out.

I may not like some of them or “Ace of Base” doesn’t make it a guilty pleasure though. You like it & that’s fine with me. I don’t believe in guilty pleasures!

Songs I like. “Flatlined” this is one of the benefits of being in a band! You meet other great bands that should have made it big. Flatlined is a rock group from Ontario that we got to preform with while they were on a few cross Canada tours (3 or 4). I can get you one song from youtube & their 2 iTunes albums. Really great guys!
