I fell asleep to “Sum 41” the new album “Order in Decline”

I got up too early to turn on the music today.  Last night I also listened to “Live” the 25th anniversary edition of “Throwing Copper”


I had my 2nd appointment with my psychiatrist.  I think my pills are helping, quite a bit!  Just waiting for a referral to a psychologist or therapist to talk to.

Honestly it’s little things that drive me nuts, I don’t talk about them, & eventually I just blow up on whoever, despite them not doing anything.  Mainly technology.  It feels like “Here’s a bunch of new stuff for you, we built it, and you figure it out”.  At least IKEA gives you a page of instructions.  Fix the old stuff that doesn’t work, then move on to newer stuff we apparently “need”.  “In the meantime” “I need to keep my head together”!  The increase in 1 of my anti-depressant pills has helped, but I think I should talk with someone.

In other news our A/C seems to be fixed.  I’m always warm & I wear shorts year ‘round.  If I’m in pants I’m headed to or leaving a wedding or funeral!  Apple pointed me in the right direction & I figured things out from there, 7 CDs to reload & iTunes should be fixed!


Justin Bieber is a BIG fan of Tool!  AWESOME!

What do I think about this?  I don’t care, listen to whatever you like.  As for his wife’s opinion, she probably doesn’t get Maynard’s humour if she’s not a fan of Tool, A Perfect Circle, or Puscifer.  She blew it a bit out of proportion.  Appropriately, Maynard didn’t reply.

In all fairness to Tool, it’s about quality, not quantity!


4 of my anticipated albums this year are on this list!


Bands & musicians after the old age app is applied!


I guess people miss “Mudvayne” fair enough I miss “System of a Down”


Fans of “The Offspring” get ready for a new album.  For me they’re there, I don’t mind them, & I don’t hate them.  I’ve never felt compelled to buy an album of theirs.  I have performed one song of theirs.


YAY new video from “The Struts”!  Great band!

I’m not a “Guns n’ Roses” fan, but this is really funny.  Even I know that “…the grass is green & the girls are pretty…” in Paradise City!


What I do like about 1987 is “Testament’s” first album, “U2” released “The Joshua Tree”…………………….oh yeah, my brother was born that year!

New video from the upcoming album by “The Agonist”

I do enjoy “Iron Maiden”.  You’d probably be hard pressed to find a metal fan who doesn’t like them.  The singer has an incredible vocal range!




I have talked about him before, this time I’d like to focus on “Devin Townsend Project” specifically the album “Epicloud”.  Devin Townsend has made too many albums to count.  Including the little that I know of, about 12 Devin Townsend Project albums, at least 3 “Strapping Young Lad” albums, & a handful of solo albums.  Yes he’s an odd, but refreshing, character in the world of metal!

He also produced the 2nd “Lamb of God” album “As The Palaces Burn”  this does not include the first album “Lamb of God” released under the name “Burn the Priest” a terrible album in my opinion.

Devin Townsend is Canadian & resides in British Columbia.

I fell asleep to “Myles Kennedy” his only solo album “Year of the Tiger” followed by “The Pretty Reckless” the album “Who you Selling for?”

I exercised to nothing, I forgot to get the remote down.

For breakfast coming up I will be listening to “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”



OK so I’m physically disabled, that doesn’t mean I can’t do anything.  I can stand for a long time as long as I have something solid to hold onto.  I cleaned our main bathroom, mirror, sink, & toilet.  I can stand up with the pedestal sink to get the entire mirror clean.  When I stand up in the living room I have a transfer pole.  I stand there & just stretch.  Even with one hand on it & I can touch our 8 foot ceiling.  In the kitchen I can use the stove top & cook my fish in the oven.

Kim goes to work Monday-Friday, knowing I can spend 8 hours in our condo & be just fine.  I have phone numbers to call if I need something.  I think I’ve called for help once because we were out of toilet paper!  Nothing life threatening I just didn’t want to sacrifice my socks!

Knock on wood, I haven’t fallen lately & I haven’t hurt myself in doing so thus far.  I likely won’t be able to walk without a walker, but we’ll see about that?  Maybe I’ll be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life?  There’s always that possibility.

I guess what I’m saying is I can do things, some just aren’t as fast as able bodied people do.  Nobody really knows what I can or can’t do, not even Kim.  That’s not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings but even I sometimes take on something pretty much impossible & surprise myself or be disappointed that I can’t do it.  If it’s the latter I’ll look at it from a different perspective the next time.  There’s nothing wrong with trying something in a different way, as long as no one gets hurt.



Here’s some of the BAD that I would hear at the hotel 3 or more times a shift, music playing at, at least 3 events……

Those songs got old for me fast!  The following songs were instant hits for me & were never played during any events at the hotel I worked at in Banquets.


Or just Jägermeister on the rocks, at least that’s how I drink it?



Yep, rock is no longer cool.  Now everybody wants pop music at the box social or whatever the kids call it these days!


New Pearl Jam song!!!!!


Mark Tremonti’s Facebook status.  Wow, that was really fast!

“Mixing is officially done! Off to mastering….A Dying Machine”


Day light savings time was created for WWI.  Do we really need it now?  I don’t think so.  At least in Saskatchewan we don’t do it, it’s always the same time here!


The last concert I went to in 2017.  Easily the best Barenaked Ladies show I’ve ever seen.  I don’t think I’ve missed a show in Regina since 1992.  I even saw a show while I was in my rehabilitation program!



The Blue Jays seem to be barking up the same tree as last year.  They’re trying to make a starting pitcher out of Joe Biagini.  All of the fans saw this experiment crash & burn last year, Biagini was 3W-11L as a starter last year.  On Sunday he gave up 5 runs & couldn’t get out of the 2nd inning.  He’s great in the bullpen though as a reliever!  $20,000,000 short-stop might be healthy near the end of April.  Regular season starts on Thursday, March 29th.  I don’t think this will be a pretty year?

This happened to him last year in May or June?  I have not seen him on a baseball field since.

I fell asleep to “U2” the album “Songs of Experience”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”


Monday I only did 3 out of 6 exercises, pushups, crunches, & squats.  Tuesday was my birthday aka I did nothing!  On Monday I was still recovering from Saturday.  No hangover, just stayed up too late.  Usually any time after 11:00 pm, is a game of Russian roulette for me.  Everyone left by 11:00 pm, but I stayed up until 12:20 am or so & wrote most of this!


I guess I’m old now & not as cool anymore.  I’m 38 & still feel (in my mind) like I’m 20.  I really don’t miss doing the jobs I did in my teens.  Especially being a “banquet porter” at a hotel.  Longest shift I ever worked was there 14 hours long.  That was a difficult job, strength wise.  All of those weddings, Christmas parties, ethnic nights, meetings, dances, etc.  That’s why I got so tired of hearing “one hit wonders” from the 90s.  Most nights there would be some event & weekends were a guaranty there would be at least 3.  Bartending, serving food, cleaning up & setting up meeting rooms for the next day, putting a banquet room together, all of that I did for far too long 16-20 years of age I’m guessing.  I already had to wear a tuxedo shirt & a bowtie for high school band & choir at school & then at work that night………….by the way, I REALLY don’t like wearing dress clothes.

You’ve probably never thought of who put 500 round tables in here for your supper & this dance floor for afterwards.  I never thought about it either, but it was a team of likely 20 people, & I was one of them.  I’d spend an evening shift going up & down the back hallway & heard this kind of stuff on repeat……..

How many times have you heard the “Macarena”?  Great multiply that by 50 & welcome to my life as a teenager!

I would hear those songs 5 times minimum on a Friday or Saturday night at work.  Then go home & watch “Much Music” & turn it off immediately if they were playing one of those songs.  I can tolerate them, but after the 3rd time it just became ridiculous!


I tried really hard to watch “The Grammy Awards” but it was mostly me thinking “Who’s that?  Why is this the cool thing?  Man, I don’t get the attraction to this music, it’s mostly disposable candy music I’ll forget tomorrow.”

Thank goodness for “Bruno Mars”, “Sting” & “U2”.  If you we’re hoping to see the rock & metal categories, they weren’t aired on the TV broadcast.  Foo Fighters won for best rock song & Mastodon won for best metal performance.


Bruno Mars may sample stuff, but he’s always entertaining!

I think this all points to the fact that I’m not all that hip to what the cool kids are listening to, & that I suddenly became old.

I didn’t see the last 15 minutes of “The Grammy Awards” & I’m pretty sure I didn’t need or want to.  Congratulations to those who were nominated & those who won.  I applaud you’re hard work, I’m just not your demographic for most of you.


Every front man/front woman wants to be Freddie Mercury on stage, but they’re not.  They’re themselves & fans just want honesty, so it works out for everyone.  I wasn’t in an extremely successful band or even a moderately successful band.  I figured, “They paid $5 to see us play, might as well do the best I can!”  If anybody saw us whether it was a free benefit show or if it was a $15 ticket to a Cabaret, they’d better enjoy their evening.



Are you a “Led Zeppelin” fan?  Have you bought the “Greta Van Fleet” album “From the Fires”?  It’s 8 songs that you could easily put on any “Led Zeppelin” album with upbeat tempos.


I made the mistake of watching some of the “State of the Union” speech last night, & I almost……


It doesn’t matter how many beer you have “Tom Sawyer” is one of the 3 radio hits by Rush that has never been enjoyable for me!



Should the Blue Jays have tried harder to get Christian Yelich?  Try?  Who says they went that far?  Anything not regarding Vladimir Guerrero Jr. should have been seriously considered.  The GM & the manager of baseball operations were told not to “blow up” the core players.  So I guess it’s the owner of Roger’s communications who really wants to irk the fans.  So far this has been an absolutely TERRIBLE off season!


If you’re not a diehard fan of the “Toronto Blue Jays” at this point I’d ask that you please avert your eyes.  This season could be worse than last year.  If you choose to watch you’ll likely be watching mostly old struggling players among a few minor league players to fill other spots.

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

Don’t feel as though you must open every link.

I have what’s called an ‘acquired brain injury’.  I don’t know of anyone else that has had my specific type of brain cancer.  It’s more common in children than young adults, that’s not cool.  I was in a program with other people who’ve had brain injuries.  We’d all get together to play games.  I didn’t get to go very often, Brewster is high maintenance & has anxiety attacks when left alone.  I’m sure there were people in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center that have experienced or future patients that will.  Sure it changes a lot of things, you just have to make adjustments yourself!  Do you have a child?  If you do, I can almost guarantee your life is different now than it was before having a child?  Life changed instantly & now it makes things slightly challenging or just different.  Nobody necessarily likes change & I totally get that.  I have a lot of help if I need it, there’s even a program at the WRC called the ABI program to help me anytime down the road if needed.  In the end, this being alive stuff sure beats the alternative!

My sciatic nerve is better, but there is still a tiny bit of pain there.  It’s still the best it’s felt since November.  I saw my massage therapist last week.  She said it was much better even before my massage.  After my massage she told me to see my chiropractor, she said I had a few ribs out of place.  I can’t feel anything out of whack in my ribs, just my lower back & a bit down my right leg.


Barenaked Ladies shared it.  Maybe they should take some time off instead of releasing an album of previous material with another group?


So I could go to Moose Jaw to see the “Offspring” a 40-45 minute drive to see a band that I’m a very, very casual fan of.  This was the first song my first band learned to play (I was but a singer at the time).


Or I could make the mind-numbing 2 & ½ hour drive to Saskatoon to see Ed Sheeran, who I really like.

I like Ed Sheeran, but I loathe the drive to Saskatoon & I’ve seen Ed Sheeran in Regina once.  Do I go to Saskatoon or hold out for ‘In Flames’ to come from Sweden to Saskatoon.

I can definitely say I don’t need to see The Offspring.  I’ve seen In Flames once or twice & wasn’t disappointed.  The sound for Ed Sheeran in Regina was dreadful & everybody watched 75% of the show through a cell phone.  Kim would prefer Ed Sheeran, so we’ll see how much tickets are?  In Flames have yet to announce any North American dates.

This show could be WAY over our budget?


Why does U2 need to reissue one of their biggest albums for $24.99 on iTunes with a bunch of older songs added to it?  ‘The Joshua Tree’ was roughly $25 in the ‘80s when it came out on CD.  Thanks, I bought it decades ago & it sounds fine.  32 extra songs from different albums that older U2 fans already own?  I don’t know how many people are newer U2 fans that would purchase this?  I’m a big U2 fan, but this just screams “CASH GRAB” to me.


I guess U2 was my absolute favourite band until I Mother Earth released “Scenery & Fish” in 1996.  Then Canada began their post-grunge movement.  Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good Band, The Tea Party, The Age of Electric, Limblifter, Moist, The Inbreds, Finger Eleven, Treble Charger, Econoline Crush, etc.  I guess you could put Big Wreck in here as well. Their 1st release was in 1997.


Let me set the scene for you, this happened quite often.  It’s 1996, my brother & I are doing dishes after supper.  Our parents have retired to the living room.  My brother & I are addicted to I Mother Earth’s “Scenery & Fish” album.  After a few minutes of the album playing in the kitchen our mother yells at us “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!”  We turn it down, but not enough?  She yells again “TURN IT DOWN NOW!”  We turn it down more, now we can’t hear it.  So we turn it up.  This struggle goes on until the dishes are done about an hour later.


OK, does anyone gain anything in this scenario?  Do the verbal abusers gain anything?  This is just one example, in the end it’s just people hurting other people for being different.  WHY?



I guess “The Black Keys” are taking a break.


This group just drives me nuts for some reason, but so does Guns n’ Roses, couldn’t tell you why?


Whether you like them or not you had to know they’d get an award for sales at some point.  I just assume many people own everything Nickelback & lie to others saying “No not Nickelback, I hate them!”  Wait 4 minutes & the radio will change.  I don’t like them, but they’ve done nothing to harm me in any way.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, followed by “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June”, & finally “Phillip Phillips” the album “Behind the Light”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

The extent of my week has been rather focused on my sciatic nerve.  I saw the chiropractor the other day and a message therapist Thursday evening.  It’s not perfect but it’s MUCH better than it was!  My chiropractor got the muscle to move quite a bit & at my message therapy appointment Thursday, she could tell.

It’s not perfect but more of a “Hope this can tide you over until the cortisone shot”?  It is really nice to have such little pain in my leg for the time being!  It still could be 5 weeks or so until an appointment can be made for my MRI.


“There’s no such thing as a stupid question”.  I’ve heard that many times over my 37 years & it’s always been true.  Never be afraid to ask anyone anything.  Obviously I need help from time to time.  Here’s an example; we were out for dinner a few weeks ago.  I had to use the washroom before we left the restaurant.  I asked where it was & I was on my way.  I got to the washroom & because I am still quite weak, the door felt as though it was 100lbs.  A waitress was walking by so I asked if she could help me with the door.  No problem!  Sure she’s half the size of me, but much stronger than I.

When I was discharged from the WRC, I could barely lift one of our dinner plates, now I lift 2 or 3 at a time when I’m emptying the dishwasher.  Things are getting back to “normal”.  The only thing is that “normal” looks a bit different than it used to.  There’s no point in me getting frustrated or angry about my situation.  What good will that do anyone?

After so much time with certain doctors I realized something.  I’m living on borrowed time.  These doctors deal with everybody’s medical issues every day, for the 15 minutes I’m there I might as well keep things light & not so serious.  When I show up we don’t need to be so serious & wonder what the next pill is I should ween off, let’s have some fun & forget about my cancer for a bit!  Can you imagine how a doctor of any kind can get stressed, let alone a doctor dealing with a cancer patient can get?!  I’m alive!  Don’t be so serious all of the time.  I’ll be serious when I ask for help with something & once it’s done, I shall return to being a nut job!  (Stick with my strength)


Article with “The Pretty Reckless”



Regina musician, Andy Shauf, on James Corden



Well they were stars in the………………………………………….1980s most of them



I had issues with 3 movies I had bought from iTunes, so I called their help number & it was FANTASTIC!  I called the line for those with disabilities since I’m unable to get to the hardware needed & the assistance was great!


I came across this trailer, & I’m ready to “Geek Out”


New Chris Cornell song


I can’t find it on iTunes but apparently it’s on a movie soundtrack of the same name?


Tickets here $60 festival kickoff in Burlington, Ontario with “The Offspring” & “Live” Saturday, June 10th.


Yep, I’ve preformed this “Offspring” tune.


Pentatonix put a 6 song EP up for preorder today & this comes with the preorder


Check out these 25 musical guests on SNL over the years!



Songs I’ve played live.  I was never the head honcho in any band.  The 3 bands I was in were always 4 equal partners.  I just happened to be the singer.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Matthew Good Band” the album “The Audio of Being”

I’m really in some pain. A week off for the holidays was not a great idea. I should probably have eased in to the workouts? Hind sight is 20/20 though! Today was just stretching for the most part.

Yes, Regina, mostly at The Exchange, has a decent sized metal scene. Not everyone knows everybody. But everyone shares a passion for metal, we respect each other. It’s like a big gang, we may not know a person’s name, but if they need assistance in any way, everyone who sees something going on will help out if needed. The Exchange is one of the better intimate venues in town, as well as one of the very few venues for original artists to play without paying boat loads of cash to play there. I played there with my last rock band many times. People their wont judge you & it’s always a pleasant atmosphere.

I like hearing/seeing what a band or artist is in too. I like it when someone does a cover of another song, it shows the audience what inspired whoever I’m watching, what formed their voice or made them want to learn a certain instrument. Foo Fighters play a cover or 4 during their 3 hour set….


Billy Corgan’s wrestling song


A beginners guide to David Bowie


Top notch drum off! If Neil Peart, Rush, was in it I don’t think he’d even have to play? Chris Adler of Lamb of God should be in it too. In the end it’s subjective.


Big album releases for 2016 for hard rock & metal fans. I think Tool is likely the biggest one fans are waiting for? Tool & Alter Bridge are the 2 I’m anxiously waiting for!


Back up singers can shock you! Sheryl Crow was a back up singer for Micheal Jackson before her career as a solo artist!


$35,000,000 seems like quite a bit to own a punk/rock/whatever bands catalogue of music.


The upcoming Alter Bridge album is already simply titled “V” just a vague as “ABIII” ah well, at least the music makes up for lazy album titles?

The Agonist shared it……

A Pentatonix cover, they shared……

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Econoline Crush” the album “The Devil You Know”. They’re from Manitoba, I’m not sure what part though. Cameron Rorquist & his sister Jackie might know?

From the ’90s when Much Music played music videos 24 hours a day.


Forgot to take my night time pills=awake at 5:00 am. Went to bed at 11:00 pm after watching some recorded TV, fell asleep really fast, which never happens even before I had cancer. I usually toss & turn for an hour, good thing Kim is in a deep sleep in 30 seconds or less. Kim went to bed long before I did.


At the moment it’s 9:13 am. I’ve had breakfast, zipped through 2 late night talk shows that I record (Jimmy Fallon & Jimmy Kimmel). I’ve done 40 squats followed by 420 crunches, I’ve had 700ml of water. Now I’m here.


I really wanted to listen to Opeth & Dream Theater yesterday. When one song takes 6-24 minutes you pretty much have to set aside a day for just music. I could listen to it as background music, but I prefer to concentrate on what I’m listening to when it’s that complex, stuff I wouldn’t even attempt to play. When it’s at a public venue such as a bar, restaurant, gym…, it fades away until I hear something I really like, then I dance like this….


We rented “Grizzly Man” from iTunes over the holidays. I want my $5 back & the hour & a ½ of my life back. The movie is like this blog. The rants of a crazy person, but this blog is free. I thought it would be more about the bears…………….it wasn’t. The guy admits he’s bi-polar & stopped taking his medication. The film is more about him than the bears.


One of the members of Dream Theater almost played on Pink Floyds album “The Wall”



Lzzy Hale of Halestorm sings with the Trans Siberian Orchestra



Coachella has announced the 2016 line up & yes Guns n’ Roses are one of the headliners 99% sure it will be the original line up, there’s still a 0.1% chance it could be Axl & Friends.


People like them. I don’t have to understand why, I just have to acknowledge that fact?


Anthrax stream new single album available for pre-order on iTunes for release on February 26th



Article with drummer Chris Adler from “Lamb of God” who also played on the upcoming “Megadeth” album. Played drums for both bands on the same tour in Europe. Megadeth available for pre-order on iTunes now release on January 22nd .






I’ve never been a fan of “Jane’s Addiction” but I’ve heard many people rave about how great they are. I’ve heard 3 of their songs 1 of them I enjoy. Below is 1 of the 2 songs I’ve heard & don’t like, it was also my first exposure to the group.


Zach Galifianaskis’ new movie trailer



Mark Tremonti, Alter Bridge guitarist & Tremonti singer/guitarist, deserves a break. He finished a year long tour for his solo project in December, he’s been writing while on tour for Alter Bridge & I just saw a photo of him in the studio or rehearsal space with other members of Alter Bridge writing their 5th studio album. He’ll be releasing his 3rd Tremonti album later this year! He sounds like a workaholic to me. I guess that’s what happens when you enjoy your job. I liked my job as well, sure I got frustrated when the printing press wasn’t cooperating with me, but I do miss it more than I expected.


It’s funny because it’s true!!!!



Axl Rose still dodging media regarding a Guns n’ Roses reunion. If he’s still doing this charade, why would the others want to relive this?



I’m a U2 fan so this is right up my alley. The last 3 U2 albums are very forgettable for me. “Zooropa” isn’t my favourite album of theirs but I do like it. I checked my iTunes, I’ve put 16 U2 CDs on my iTunes, including 2 “Greatest Hits” albums that both came with an extra CD of B-Sides & I have the recent album that was free & sounds nothing like U2.



This better be true, or a bunch of people will flip if it isn’t! DON’T SHOOT THE MESSENGER!!!


Same old Guns n’ Roses, everyone is ready to go & Axl flakes out on an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. Who would have thought? EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brewster actually came to play with me while I was on the floor doing my exercise!!! That made me happy, he hasn’t done that in the last 2 weeks! He usually puts his squeak toy beside my head while doing my crunches today he left it right on my face. We played for a bit but he really just wanted me to rub his throat & belly.

One trilogy done many more to watch! I forgot how good the Christian Bale “Batman” trilogy is, & how good/dark Heath Ledger played The Joker. Thanks Cameron & Michelle Rorquist that was my weekend! Baseball, Football & Batman!   Cam & Michelle bought “The Dark Knight” DVD while I was in the hospital.  I had cancer, they asked me what they could do or what did I need?  My response “The Dark Knight” movie??? FANTASTIC weekend on the couch! Even Kim got into the Batman movies. Brewster even calmed down a bit, the only problem with every action movie is the sound. You blast the sound to hear the dialogue, then you have to turn it way down during the action sequences, so the people on the other end of town don’t hear the movie. Ah, well. What trilogy next? 6 Star Wars, Back to the Future, original Lord of the Rings (sans Hobbit), 4 American Pie movies, Austin Powers, etc. Better be careful, Kim may hurt me.

Let’s get something straight? I’m perfect but Kim’s a genius. Shh! Don’t tell her I said that OK….actually……………..DELETE, DELETE, DELETE, how do you work this fandangled contraption????????

No I do like Megadeth, they shared this on Facebook….

Offspring update from the studio.


Personally any song from the beginning of “Badmotorfinger” on it’s quite difficult to find a bad Soundgarden song there’s some that aren’t up to par, but still decent.


New “Ghostbuster” names.


Karaoke, Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter doing “The Real Slim Shady” by Eminem. SOME LANGUAGE!!!

This is great n’ all but when will they release the new album? I’m waiting for this & many more announcements/release dates!

John Oliver “Last Week Tonight”


BSB & ‘N Sync to make a zombie movie together. You know them you’ve heard a catchy tune by them even I bought a BSB CD. Gave it to my brother after a few years of rarely listening to it.


This could be in the movie or on the soundtrack?

Letter to Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) leads to an arrest


Trivium with Tremonti on Saturday, September 12th in the USA though.

If Kim liked metal & if we were rich, we’d go to this^^ concert & the tour below

Country music’s current power couple divorce. Any divorce is sad news. I hope it’s amicable & not a messy divorce?


Pentatonix movie trailer

I bought the “Echosmith” album last week, I like it!


Evanescence will tour in November after a hiatus since 2012.


AC/DC’s drummer, Phil Rudd, sentenced to home confinement for 8 months. Seems like a light sentence, to me, for threatening to kill someone?


Big Wreck fan gets on stage during concert

BREAKING NEWS!!!! Kim is home today, she’s better than last night when she felt she might be catching the flu. Anyways she was going through her CD binder & found my Dave Grohl autographed ticket stub & news paper photo from 2000 in Saskatoon! Kim’s feeling much better today but not quite right yet. This song is the only one in the first 3 Foo Fighters’ albums that I tolerate & wait for the next song “Learn to Fly”.

Yes, the video of the older gentleman trying to put on his rain cape is funny. Notice in this life or death moment the phone catches all of the action. I don’t know what you’d do in this situation but video recording it would be the furthest from my mind?

Last night, after I posted my blog, I found out that you can still share your digital music if the person doesn’t use iTunes Match (home sharing without turning on a computer & unable to stream in a vehicle. No biggie, back to iTunes home sharing since Match is actually taking the songs I purchased from iTunes away from our TV on 2 recently purchased albums. They’re fine on any other device. Just means my iPod classic will be in the vehicle on long trips along with Kim’s phone.

Paramore shared it………

WAY TO YOUNG TO DIE!!! I went into the hospital with stage 4 brain cancer at 28 years & 6 days old.


Nirvana concert photos pre fame.

Best. Video. On. The. Internet. Today anyways or at the moment.

Songs I like. “Matthew Good/Matthew Good Band” I own about 7 Matthew Good Band CDs. I can’t find the first one that even he doesn’t have, someone stole it. Only 3 of them were really popular. This was Canada’s response to the “grunge” movement.
