And happy “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens”. I wish I was joking, but I’m not. It should be on whatever science fiction channel you have on July 31st?

I fell asleep to“Pentatonix” their self titled debut album of original material. They have 3 previous shorter albums of cover songs.

I exercised to “Bad Religion” about 20 of 22 songs from the album “All Ages”, then about 5 songs from the album “Under the Table & Dreaming” by the “Dave Matthews Band”, then 2 songs from “Dire Straits” the album “Love Over Gold”

I procrastinated a bit by listening to “Foo Fighters” album “Sonic Highways”

Remember most of this is just about me bombing around in a wheelchair, currently t the age of 36, I had stage 4 brain cancer at the age of 28 & I’ve been in a wheelchair since Tuesday, February 5th 2008, & I listen to a pile of music & I have played baseball from the age of 4-17 then I quit because my arm said I had to! Stupid arm!

I know there are people out there that have a much larger music collection than I do. I backed up my iTunes files the other day & I currently own 1180 albums on my iTunes + roughly 300/600 CDs I have yet to put on iTunes.

The majority of info on here is mostly stuff I’m interested in, there’s a lot more info out there that I’m not necessarily interested in. I urge you to look for info you’re interested in &/or let me know what you’d like to see here more & if there’s an artist or group I should know about? Feedback is always welcome!

The rest of our Sunday consisted with butternut squash soup for supper, along with Kim & I watching recorded “Shark Week” shows on our PVR. I think we have 2 or 3 to go still?

Upcoming bands we need to know about? I think I’ve shared this before as well? Sorry if I have?


Yep, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this before & there wasn’t anything that “caught my eye” or ears

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Best Dave Grohl drumming moments 1985-2015

Dave Grohl released the album “Foo Fighters” 21 years ago today in 1995. He recorded the album by himself on every song, one portion of a guitar part was recorded by someone else.


http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/foo-fighters-19951005 Both articles are quite interesting!

Easily my favourite song on this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Below……

I hope this “Alter Bridge” recently signing with a new record company, “Napalm Records”, doesn’t delay the already recorded 5th studio album?

Ah, well played Soundgarden…..

Health or job. Which would you pick? It would be a no brainer for me, HEALTH! Melissa McCarthy!

Todd Bryanton on drums! The 2nd drummer in our band “Chemical Horizon” & the 1st drummer of “Room 333” when I got sick. Very talented guy!

Finger Eleven tour dates

Can’t say I was a big fan of Beck in the ’90s other than the album “Odelay”, not the one with “Loser”, but the one after with these 2 songs…

Foo Fighters’ 30 song soundtrack to ‘Sonic Highways’ TV series available for streaming!

‘Smash Mouth’ singer goes on tirade at show. Honestly didn’t know they were still around? LANGUAGE!!!

REALLY? Sharknado 3? I couldn’t sit through more than 10 minutes on the first 2? Sharks in a tornado? Bahahahaha! The only reason the actors took the job was because it was to outrageous not to take.

Janet Jackson announces tour, even she has a tour date in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan? I’m not a fan of her. That’s a big name act though!

Regina based metal group sign new deal with Italian record label “Kolony Records”.

Gotta say, I’m really enjoying Tremonti’s “Cauterize” & Muse’ “Drones” albums right now! I listen to my iTunes through the home stereo more than on my iPod.

I guess this Beck single is pretty good. Sounds like something I’d buy & never listen to though.

50 best things Rolling Stone magazine saw at the Bonnaroo festival

Number 1 is where the list starts it’s Billy Joel!

It’s old, I’ve seen it before, but I had to watch Dave Grohl on Craig Kilbourn again.

Metal sucks Podcast with Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler. I’m listening to it at the moment possible LANGUAGE!!

Music fans deal with stereotypes as well, everybody fits in to some sweeping stereotype that isn’t true for everyone involved. I like hard rock & metal. Before I was in a wheelchair, I’d go to these type of shows & get a pat down before entering the venue. Fair enough keep it clean keep it safe. After being patted down with nothing on me to be found, they’d let me in. There was one show that they asked me if I had a cell phone & if it took pictures. I told them yes, they asked me to take it back to my vehicle. Whoever I was seeing requested no photos or videos during the performance. I had no intention of doing either, but I did what I was told. No big deal? Now I’m in a wheelchair, they look at me and quietly say “Ah, he won’t hurt anybody”. I never went to a show with the intent to hurt someone or ruin the show for someone. There’s always a few bad apples that slip “…..through the cracks….” & do something stupid to causes security to see if your bringing a weapon or drugs in to the venue. Look at the Craven Valley Jamboree. A Country music festival though I’ve never been to it so I don’t know if they pat you down at the entrance or check the camping tent, trailer or RV. I have heard of rape & sexual assaults occurring at the event. Police aren’t going to catch everyone going to the festival, that’s a ton of people & they’re not all bad people, a lot of them just want to hang out & have fun. I’ve never heard of rape, murder or assault at the shows I’ve been to. Security just wants to be assured that you’re safe while you’re there. If you don’t want them to touch you, I recommend a wheelchair! Bazinga!

This is the song I broke my nose to in a rock festival in’99. In a mosh pit in Saskatoon while watching one of my favourite bands.

Songs I like. “Islander” I only have the one album & I like it, at the same time I don’t need anymore from them. There’s an EP & maybe another full length album on iTunes?
