JUST BECAUSE IT’S HEAVY DOESN’T MEAN I LIKE IT?

I fell asleep to “Zac Brown Band” the album “Jekyll + Hyde” after listening to “The Tea Party” the album “Edges of Twilight”

I exercised to “Led Zeppelin” all of the studio albums & my 3 disc box set on shuffle, didn’t hear my favourite songs though. I did hear their biggest hit though “Stairway to Heaven”, good song I just find it overrated, I still like it though.

Here’s “Stairway to Heaven” for those who don’t know it?

Yes I like pop, rap, hip hop, jazz, some country, but mostly rock & metal. I only know of one person in my life that listens to metal & nothing else. I can’t do that, after a while it’s like “OK, stop screaming at me!” Variety is the spice of life? Take almost everything in small doses? That’s how I take my music. I don’t purchase rap or country music since I know it would be a waste of money since I’d rarely listen to it. Just not my go to music. As long as the individuals enjoy what they’re doing, that’s good enough for me! I don’t have to like it or buy it!

Look at that! The Toronto Blue Jays’ bats sort of woke up last night. It’s like they rolled over & said “5 more minutes mom” as they won 7-2 against the NY Yankees. I think that’s the first time they’ve scored more than 3 runs in a game? They’re only 9 games into the season though 151 games to go!

I’ve had more than enough of the USA’s Presidential campaign. Everything American is shoved down Canadians throats! If their still undecided, then they should miss out. The candidates are so close to making “Yo Mama” jokes at this point.

Reason 958 to not take your cell phone into concert. It bothers other people who’ve paid the same amount as you to actually want to watch the concert. I don’t hate cell phones, I would just like people to think before they video live performance/learn some concert etiquette.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Anthrax” talk about touring with “Motorhead”

http://loudwire.com/anthrax-tour-motorhead-lemmy-kilmister-stories/

I’m gonna say it right now. Kim & I just rented “Straight Outta Compton”. The only movie I’ve heard about, which is (I think) nominated for an Oscar is “The Martian”. Did you see “Armageddon”? Did you see “Gravity”? Both seemed VERY similar to me, the story line at least. Somebody is left alone in space. I like Sandra Bullock & Matt Damon, “Good Will Hunting” instantly became one of my favourite movies. I don’t really need/want to see “The Martian”, it sounds like the same story line again. Somebody’s left alone in space. I’ve heard about “The Revenant” too, I think it was released too late for the Oscars? Why was “Straight Outta Compton” left out? Because it’s subjective & the Academy are the only people that get to vote. I’m with the guy on “Weekend Update” on SNL, choose movies that people have heard of, & have scene. I don’t need to hear about the artsy fartsy stuff nobody’s heard of!

Mine’s not on that list, since it’s a Canadian group! “I Mother Earth” released the album “Scenery & Fish” that year

This album still holds up for me. I do prefer Brian Byrne as the singer on the 3rd & 4th album though!

Quiet weekend here. Movies, ordered Chinese food (I think it’s the first time ever that Kim has ordered it? It only happens when my parents are around. She hates it), laundry, cleaning. I just got up & went straight to dishwasher emptied & made a fruit/vegetable smoothie, takes a while to wash & cut everything. But, no waste like when you’re actually using a juicer!

METAL FANS/BAND MEMBERS

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Metal fans get a bad reputation because of the music we like. Not every metal fan or band member is a flat out metal head though. The metal musicians and fans are some of the kindest people I’ve met. I’m in a wheelchair. When I go to The Exchange to see a local metal band play, TONS of people stop & say hello, shake my hand, chat for a bit, help me out if needed, hold open a door, etc. Nobody goes out of their way to be harmful to anyone. There’s a bad seed in every crowd so I don’t necessarily hang around those people. The people I know that play or listen to aggressive music won’t judge you on what you listen to for music. They know others can instantly judge them by their metal music. I’m not afraid to tell anyone what I listen to. Here’s a few examples of what I listen to….

It’s subjective. A song does not have an influence as to who you are! You like it because you like it, so why hide it? The only music fans I’ve met who don’t consider their music offensive are country music fans. It doesn’t bother me, I do enjoy a small sampling of country music here & there. It’s a lot like extremely heavy metal. Good for a bit, but not for more than one album a day. Slayer is as offensive as a Southern twang country artist to me! Kim was listening to “The Help” audio book on the way to who knows where, too much twang for me. I’m not trying to rattle anyone’s cage in particular, these are just off the top of my head examples……

I did it! I watched “Silence of the Lambs” with Kim. I put on my big boy pants, sucked it up & just asked Kim to hold me when I got scared. I haven’t watched that movie in over a decade. It’s not that freaky of a movie, but when they show Anthony Hopkins in a straight jacket & the brown muzzle/mask, I pee a little then curl up into the fetal position. Anything with Anthony Hopkins in it gives me the HEEBIE JEEBIES now! Blue Jays play a late game tonight. I’ll likely sit through a sequel, then watch the game?

I’ll tell you right off the bat, I DON’T VOTE OR FOLLOW POLITICS OR & here’s why. I get a kick out of watching greasy scum bags doing commercials to “help” their campaign by telling you the opposition can’t do this or that. Whoever’s commercial it is will promise you the moon though. I have 0 desire to sift through the nonsense & ballyhoo as to who I’d vote for. When politicians can honestly tell me how & what they can do then I’ll consider voting? Here’s 2 examples of what I’ve seen right out of the gate……
