ONE DAY OFF, & BACK TO THE GRIND

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Chromeo’s” album “White Women”

Top 50 metal albums of all time. It’s subjective, but I/we might learn something?

I’d have to add “Lamb of God’s” Ashes of the Wake album & “Trivium’s” Ascendancy album. LANGUAGE IN THE LAMB OF GOD VIDEO!!!!

Wednesday’s Rock It Out Blog. Cassettes? No thank you. Vinyl, CD, or Digital. I like having the actual product in my hands but digital music is so convenient! I’m running out of room for CDs or vinyl.

I prefer this version of the movie. Not the Jonny Depp version. The book is better than either movie in my opinion.

REALLY! Alcohol ban at an AC/DC show. If I’m at a concert I MIGHT have a beer. I have never been drunk at a concert. I’m there to watch the band on stage. Lot’s of other people like to get a little tipsy. That’s fine with me, just not how I roll.

Stephen Colbert on the holiday Starbucks cup. It’s what’s inside that counts. A $5 coffee that tastes nothing like coffee. A treat to have maybe 3 times a year, get over it.

How did I treat my flu?

Foo Fighters countdown clock is at 10 days at the moment

Songs I like, “Thornley” 2 albums released in 10 years while “Big Wreck” was on hiatus. Not really “Big Wreck’s” sound. I prefer the first album.

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle!
https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

I really like Tool, a LOT! The entire “Undertow” album is an album that for me is easily forgettable
http://loudwire.com/best-american-metal-bands/?fb123lw

Green Day albums ranked worst to first
http://diffuser.fm/worst-to-first-every-green-day-album/?fb123lw

Not my order at all. “Dookie” would easily be my no.1 Green Day album. American Idiot wouldn’t even register on my list.

Jimmy Fallon & Jennifer Garner play rock, paper, scissors, pie.

ANYBODY THAT’S AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE NEEDS A SWIFT KICK IN THE HEAD!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not gay, if I was, how would it affect you? Oh, right it wouldn’t unless you’re a part of Kim’s immediate family.

Third full length album from “Halestorm”. Release is April 14th . I have it preordered on iTunes. I have 3 songs since I’ve preordered the album here they are.

I’m still listening to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album

Into Eternity & Third Ion should be releasing new material this year. Third Ion’s first album & Into Eternity’s 6th I believe (both are Regina based metal bands)

I don’t understand why Foo Fighters & In Flames seem to be catching so much heat for their recent albums? Do fans just want them to remake the first album they ever heard? I wouldn’t that would get boring & predictable FAST! I love that some writer assumed each song on the Foo Fighters album would be completely different since they were recorded in different cities. At the end of the day it will sound like a Foo Fighters album with extras, they did change their sound. I’ve never ever heard a horn section on any Foo Fighters album

In Flames made a mellow metal album & the fans got angry, why? The concert in Saskatoon was more then FANTASTIC. I think it was sold out? The lineup to get in was down the block almost around the corner? I haven’t looked at the number of albums sold this was the first “In Flames” album I bought on iTunes. The rest were either borrowed or purchased on CD.

I know I have 5 or 6 CDs & a pile of borrowed EPs & a few full albums.

I think we won the Netflix lottery? We have a North American Netflix. We don’t have to switch between the 2! I don’t know what happened but we have it. I can watch both American & Canadian Netflix without doing anything!

KISS Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction from Paul Stanley’s perspective
http://loudwire.com/kiss-paul-stanley-no-way-play-with-ace-frehley-peter-criss-rock-hall/

The Muse album will be released on iTunes June 9th. I also have that preordered on iTunes & have one song from the album.

Halestorm, Muse, Into Eternity, Third Ion, likely a Tool album, Incubus, etc. Yes Gene Simmons rock is dead you’re right as usual, except 75% of the time.

Dave Lombardo explains why he doesn’t want the Megadeth job & why it didn’t happen in 1986. I really like Megadeth!

Top 100 albums from the ’80s by Loud Wire. I was born in 1980 but never listened to ’80s American rock or metal. I was listening to mostly my parents music which I’ll post below.
http://ultimateclassicrock.com/80s-rock-albums/?fblw

^^I can listen to this album from front to back without missing a song.

I’m going to take a moment here to listen to Billy Joel

I don’t remember if my parents ever played “The Police” around Mitch or I? When I heard “Roxanne” for me it was like “Whoa what on earth was that? That’s AWESOME!”

New My Morning Jacket songs? AWESOME!!

Motorhead fans who want to travel. This is for you! I like Motorhead, can’t say I like traveling outside of Canada. I’m 35 years old & have traveled to Boston once for a week in the summer of 2007.

If we ever go to a Starbucks, I tell Kim I would like a cappalappafrappaariana grande! Which means usually no thanks. I prefer Tim Horton’s dark roast with no cream or sugar.

Why does Pearl Jam look so angry?

Songs I like. “Clutch” I couldn’t ramble off specific titles of songs from “Clutch” but I do like their groove.
