Bad week for Stephen Colbert & Jimmy Fallon to take time off with all of the news coming out of the White House.

 

We were going to venture out for a while Friday, it was pretty smoky outside & ended up staying in & binge watching more of the first season of “The Fosters” on Netflix, great show!

 

Kim went out Saturday afternoon to take photos at a wedding.  She’s taken 3/12 classes thus far this year.  I watched a “Blue Jays in 30” & Saturday’s game followed by a Saskatchewan Roughrider game in B.C.  Both of my teams won!  Blue Jays won 8-6, & the Riders won 24-21!

Today will be lazy from here on.  We woke up at 7:30 am, we were in the kitchen by 8:00 am.  Groceries, juice & eggs are all done.  Kim’s on the last load of laundry.  Should be quiet for the rest of the day.

Kim took Friday off, you’ll get a post on Thursday & then on Monday, then Friday or Saturday?

 

There are a TON of charities that need help, here’s another one for you to think about.

August 25th, 1988 Metallica released “…And Justice for All”.  The album with absolutely no bass guitar at the request of drummer/talking contradiction Lars Ulrich.  Whatever he said publically last week, he’ll say the opposite next week.  ‘Streaming music sites suck!’  Two days later ‘I have 9 iPods filled with music from Spotify’.  I’m not joking, I’m paraphrasing.

THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-THE SONG “PEACHES”

The lyrics in this song just baffle me!  They had a gimmick within the band also.  Bass, drums, guitarist that sang.  3 strings on the guitar instead of the usual 6, 2 strings on the bass instead of 4, & very few drums with one cymbal & a hi-hat.

I don’t listen to them much but I have both albums they released.

“Moving to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches”

“Peaches come from a can.  They were put there by a man, in a factory downtown”

“Millions of peaches, peaches for free”

Why is he moving to the country to eat peaches if they come in a can from downtown?  He never reveals his connection in the factory that gives him free peaches?  I want that connection!  Does he know there are peaches on the trees on his property?  Maybe he should learn how to can peaches in his kitchen?

Here’s a few other tunes…

Friday night.  We rented “Bad Moms” from iTunes, I guess everyone but me has just turned 97 years old & doing anything after 9:00 pm is wrong so I hit the hay around 9:30-10:00 pm too.  Saturday was more of the same.  We watched “Before the Flood” for free.  It’s a documentary with Leonardo DiCaprio that talks about global warming.  He made a brief appearance on The Ellen Degeneres show to promote the film.  It’s free for I don’t know how long, you can currently watch it for free on iTunes & Facebook from what I know.  No plans for today so far though, Kim’s getting ready for the week & I’m just staying out of her way.

 

Why would you move to the country to eat canned peaches from downtown?  Wouldn’t you move closer to the factory downtown or a supermarket?

 

Another, 4th, In Flames song released from the upcoming album “Battles” to be released on Friday, November 11th.

 

A single from Big Wreck.  It’s on iTunes as a single, I’m guessing there will be a full album eventually?

 

A third Highly Suspect song from their album to be released on Friday, November 18thLANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Pretty much a guarantee from this group.

 

I Mother Earth was playing in Moncton, New Brunswick.  They likely played this song since it’s on the album that was released 20 years ago.  They’re playing every song on that album.

This article with singer, Taylor Momsen, of The Pretty Reckless sort of explains why I wrote lyrics without a literal meaning.  There was no “THIS IS WHAT IT’S ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  Don’t most people hear a song & figure out how it applies to them personally?  That’s why I listen to so much music.  Sometimes I want to think about it & other times I just want to be entertained.

BECAUSE IT ONLY WORKS WITH 47 (F-BOMBS)

I’m not offended by swearing privately, goofing around with friends & such, but there comes a breaking point.  Publically, that’s your choice.  I paid however much to see a show & now the people on stage are calling the paying audience mother&*%$#@^?

I’ve never been a Johnny Cash fan since I rarely listen to the lyrics in a song. Very limited vocal range, that also adds to my issue with The Man in Black.
