THIS IS A VERY STUPID LAW CAROLINA HAS ADOPTED!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

I exercised to…..Nothing at all. I did my crunches yesterday & I just need a break from exercising. I’ve had tunnel vision on exercising. I need to stop & smell the roses! I hope they don’t “…smell like poo, poo, poo….”

Wrong week to take off from exercising! The 2 late night talk shows I record, Jimmy Fallon & Conan are both off this week. I’ll grab my kindle & guitar this week? I can’t watch Ellen Degeneres during the day. I watch that with Kim as soon as she gets home!  I’ll be here as usual & keeping up with the blog & emails, etc.  My body could use a break though!

I really try to avoid politics in general. The recent law imposed by Carolina is flat out stupid & I’ll never ever understand the need for it. No it doesn’t affect me personally in any way, but it’s flat out LEGAL discrimination. A few years ago I wanted to see a particular show. It was a big name act, I can’t remember who?

I had the presale password & a gift card for the ticket company. Because I’m in a wheelchair, they told my mother over the phone that presale tickets are not allowed for wheelchair seating. They changed their tune & immediately got the manager on the phone when they heard the word “discrimination”!

Pearl Jam canceled a show in North Carolina because of the new law of HB2. I’m sure many people would agree with this decision!

Anything Gwen Stefanie has done outside of “No Doubt” is not really up my alley. Here’s her 27 date tour though.

What album are you waiting for this year? I didn’t know ‘Lacuna Coil’ was even releasing an album this year, that’s pleasant surprise! I’m waiting for that, Third Ion, Into Eternity, Tremonti, maybe Tool & maybe Alter Bridge? Possibly more that I’m forgetting, like I heard mention that Pearl Jam might release a new album?

I never understood the attraction to The Deftones? I do know a handful of friends that enjoy them, even my brother put them on as we drove to Winnipeg. They don’t make me cringe or anything, I’d just never purchase an album of theirs. I don’t do reviews, nor do I listen to Deftones. Here’s a review by Mr. Anthony Fantano.

Review on ‘Dust’ album by Tremonti

I agree! Alter Bridge needs to take advantage of the GNR reunion. Lot’s of free time for singer Myles Kennedy since Slash is busy for a while!

I guess today is the 22nd anniversary of “Live” the album “Throwing Copper”. I still like this album!

THE WEEKEND IS HERE AT THE END OF THE DAY

It’s Friday, I don’t want to be in here all day. Yesterday was a tad long winded. I’m a writer or I used to write lyrics, I do get writers block but I haven’t lately, sorry. My bad.

Now that this is on Facebook, please like & share this?

Favourite “Rage Against The Machine” songs? Can I just pick my 3 of 4 favourite albums? I own 3 of them on CD? POSSIBLE LANGUAGE WITH RATM?!!!!

I’ve never really been able to get into “Wilco”, think along the lines of “Blue Rodeo” watered down or “Phish”. I guess it’s a free download so have at it if you like?

I quite enjoy Paul Rudd movies. That thunder storm last night “sure escalated quickly”.

The recent release by Slipknot is just far to heavy for me. Quite a few others may call it their favourite Slipknot album. For the record I borrowed the latest album from my brother, listened to it a couple of times, gave it back, & deleted it from my iTunes. What I’ve heard from the 2004 release,Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses, sounds pretty good.

Bill Hader on Jimmy Fallon spit skit HILARIOUS!

In Flames shared it on facebook, I’ll have to check them out. Not a metal band, but a rock band. Much Music videos are gone I don’t like what’s on the radio, so facebook is my information highway for new bands!

2 singles & a 4 song EP. ^^This is one of the singles, sounds good to me I’ll put it on my list. I have other stuff to listen to before I listen to a new group. I’ve already bought two albums this week & have two more this month on pre-order.

I got my pre-order “Mister Asylum by Highly Suspect” last night & OH, MY that’s a good rock album! Kim was online for pretty much 4 or more hours after work with Apple support & almost finished fixing iTunes Match, but our internet bit the dust late last night. The woman watched a video from the album I had pre-ordered, that doubled, random songs from it on my iPod, & said to Kim “My that’s a different video”. Kim responded “That’s my husband’s music”. Fair enough 7 songs on the 10 song album are marked as “explicit”. I don’t always listen to the words unless they’re terrible, really good or that I can relate too. More the music or melody. Yeah, weird to hear from a guy who wrote lyrics in a group, I know. “Highly Suspect” is labeled as indie rock, but sound nothing like other groups in that stupid sub-genres, The Strokes, Rah Rah (Regina based band we played with at my old high school when they were starting out). I was in grade 8 at high school with “Rah Rah” member Joel Passmore, good guy, despite me not really knowing him that well.

Thank you Consequence of Sound another new artist for me to check out & put on my list to buy later if I like it. Sound Cloud link to the song inside the CoS link.

Dave Grohl interview on starting Foo Fighters. This is a snippet of the full interview of course there’s LANGUAGE!!!

New Darius Rucker video aka Hootie from “Hootie & The Blowfish” that name was meant to be the entire bands name. Same with “Alice Cooper”! Both became the front man’s name by popular opinion. There’s no “Led & Zeppelins” or “Pink & Floyds”

Yes, Dave Grohl plays drums while regular drummer, Taylor Hawkins, sings. Brian May of Queen plays on this studio version of the song.

This is why I follow the Rock It Out Blog! Members of Nirvana, Bad Brains, The Germs, & Scream play a punk rock show to 40,000 people. LANGUAGE OF COURSE, IT’S LIVE & DAVE GROHL HAS A DIRTY MOUTH LIVE!!! Out of the 8 studio albums only 3 songs have a 4 letter word in the lyrics, one of them is a rare B-Side Kim ordered for me from Best Buy only available in the USA Best Buy stores in 2005 or 2006?

There’s a show I wouldn’t attend. Nirvana was offered to play this tour/show & declined for good reason. Metallica at the time was a group of 2, 3, or 4 alcoholics & Axl Rose was/is unreliable. http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-metallica-tour-anniversary/

If Facebook goes down so does this blog it might end in a few years? I’m not really a big fan of communicating through Facebook. If Apple or iTunes goes down, for me that will be “..the day the music dies…”! “….I dig those rhythm & blues & THIS SONG…”!!

Songs I like. “Matchbox Twenty” had to skip a few! DON’T JUDGE ME!
