I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”


Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?




My T-Shirts decided to turn to dust all at the same time?  I’ve never owned a Royal Blood shirt though?  I should have got one when I saw them in 2015.

Sinead O’Connor has had multiple bouts with suicide.  Here’s an article with the recent video in it.  She didn’t kill herself but there’s quite a bit of LANGUAGE in the video.

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” again the album “Dust”

I exercised to ”Better Than Ezra” the albums “Deluxe” & “Friction Baby”, the only 2 I have, on shuffle

Exercise total for the week; 90 squats, 80 pushups, 140 leg lifts, & 6000 crunches. Yes I’m tired. I’ve been tired since Wednesday. I do have tunnel vision when it comes to a job or something else I have to do.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

I’m really good at being passive aggressive & blunt. Not usually qualities anybody wants. There’s no point in wasting my time or energy being these 2 things. It’s never made me feel better about any situation & whoever is on the receiving end of this probably doesn’t either. I never intended to hurt anyone in the past, it just came out. Why? I don’t know?

That was a few year ago, let’s move on & not dwell on the past. It happened & it can’t be changed or “erased”. All of this being said, I think I’m the only one dwelling on this? I can be “my own worst enemy”. Remembering my mistakes is how I learn. That’s not who I was before though?


That’s the game every Blue Jays fan & members of the organization have been waiting for! Blue Jay win against the Texas Rangers 12-2!

Now it’s too late to say “It’s early but….” when speaking about the Toronto Blue Jays. Last year they acquired 5 players at the end of July & won the division. 2 of them played everyday, 1 played every 5 days & 2 were relief pitchers out of the bullpen that played maybe twice a week. 1 of the 5 is still a Blue Jay. He didn’t do much last year with the bat & it’s the same this year. 2 of the 4 that left did well last year. 2 players shouldn’t dictate what a team of 25 players can do. The current roster is arguably better than last year. The pitching is better, the batters are the same, with 1/9 being different, & the defense on paper is better. 8W-9L after 17 games, something is wrong? If they want to play meaningful baseball in September, these games are just as meaningful now.

To be honest, I hated grunge music when it became the BIG thing in 1991. I was 11 years old at the time. Rock, grunge, & metal was not the music that surrounded me. Now & since the late ’90s that’s pretty much all of my listening music with a dash of pop & jazz! When Nirvana came out with ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ I avoided it, but it was everywhere!

Not my favourite song on what will likely be or already is THE album of the ’90s, but still good. I really like the song ‘Breed’ from that album

Now I have all of the “Alice in Chains”, “Soundgarden”, “Pearl Jam”, “Stone Temple Pilots”, etc. albums, & metal albums. “Trivium” or “Lamb of God” would have to be near the top of my favourite metal groups.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Eagles of Death Metal”, all 4 albums on shuffle.


Not much time for me today just did my 420 crunches. Then put away the dishes & made a fruit/vegetable blender drink, that’s my breakfast or once in a while “Rice Krispies” or “Cheerios” with 1% or skim milk.

No more Blue Jays talk until they make a move, likely a trade. This is supposed to be the most active trading off season in many decades. I’d rather wait to see what happens instead of gossiping & speculating about what might happen.


Playing baseball was my first hobby, then I joined choir in grade 10 at high school & music became my preferred hobby since I can’t play baseball? Kim & I did play softball on a paper company’s team for a year or two, that was fun while it lasted! I already had the taste of being in a rock band & that’s what I continued to do. I taught myself guitar & just became more of a tenor singer than a bass/baritone singer, since the melodies in my head were higher than my voice was.


The Agonist shared it………


Top 50 hard rock & metal front men of all-time…



Favourite rock song of 2015? Tough one for me I picked randomly out of the 3 I like.



Rock titan of 2015. I voted for Randy Blythe due to crap he went through in 2012. Guilty of manslaughter until proven innocent?! Does anybody remember what they were doing exactly 2 years ago? I’ve got the documentary on iTunes, but it is no longer there?



One good band helping out another good band.

Article/interview with “Slayer” guitarist Kerry King about the attacks on Paris



This is just ridiculous. He’s gay, it won’t change his voice at all. If you don’t like it, don’t go & don’t sign a messed petition to stop him from doing his job.


Wait………………..Freddie Mercury was gay too! So, you might not like this?


Sinead O’Connor is “safe & sound” after facebook suicide note on Sunday.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/11/sinead-oconnor-found-safe-and-sound-after-posting-suicide-note-to-facebook/ Sorry, this is the only song of hers I know. She didn’t write it, Prince wrote it.


I’ll take “Islander” over “Avenged Sevenfold” any day that end’s in “y”



I might leave you at the end of this week or early next week? Slim pickins on facebook.


Songs I like, “Riff Rock High” one of those “as seen on TV” albums. A compilation of ’70s rock hits!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “I” as in Iron Maiden’s “The Book of Souls” album

Yes, this “Learn to Fly”

The background as to why this song was written, 2 reasons that I know of. Dave Grohl wanted to try to write a well known/catchy pop song. He was also was terrified of flying at the time & was taking flying lessons. This album was released on October 26th 1999. Long time ago, this album also solidified Foo Fighters as my favourite band. My Grandmother passed away from breast cancer on December 5th 1999. I would drive 45 minutes away to Moose Jaw, turn around & come back to Regina just to occupy my time when I was supposed to be at University. I would blast this album everyday in my car.

This was written for a ‘Godzilla’ remake released in 1998. My brother has/had the CD. Notice the lyrics “…I’m afraid of aeroplanes….”

I’m assuming this was written before the ’99 release of ‘Learn to Fly’ off of “There is Nothing Left to Lose” an album made in a week, in Virginia, in Dave Grohl’s basement, in a studio Dave, Taylor & Nate built by sound proofing it with egg cartons & a friend acting as the producer. Oh, & it won 2/3 Grammy Awards.

The Pope’s arrival in the USA is why we missed the first 28 minutes of “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Tuesday. I record it at 2:00pm for Kim & I to watch later on. Just sayin’! JK!


Chris Cornell covers Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” made famous by Sinead O’Connor


Did anyone catch “The Muppets” last night on ABC? Kim & I both thought it was pretty good, we had a good chuckle!

Destiny’s Child manager hopeful of a reunion


Royal Blood on the James Corden show. Seeing Royal Blood was a bonus opening for Foo Fighters!


Songs I like, “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” one album. Finger Eleven before they got a new drummer & changed their name. “Finger Eleven” was my brother’s favourite band. We both saw the video for “Circles” at the same time & we both liked it, him a bit more than me. We both bought the CD shortly after seeing the video.
