STICKS & STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES……………….

Broken bones will heal. Words can hurt, especially if the victim has a good memory & tends to dwell on such things. Swearing is just words, I don’t mind them, they’re words with no meaning for me. I’m not going to use them since the entire world has labeled them as bad. If you’re offended by profanity, that’s fine…………..I get it. You’re the one who has defined it as a bad word, not me. This may seem odd to many but if you want to hurt ME in particular, swearing has little to no effect on me.

I Mother Earth is marking this year as the 20th anniversary of “Scenery + Fish” playing the entire album front to back & some other stuff!!!!! “Scenery + Fish” was their break through album, their 2nd of 4 albums released when I was 16 years old. It went triple platinum in Canada! This also marks 20 years since they played in Saskatchewan. I saw them at the age of 16 in Saskatoon on the tour for this album!

Hi everyone…yes been a bit quiet around here lately. That is about to change. 2016 is shaping up to be a pretty cool year for us and we just wanted to tell you a bit of what’s going on. This year is actually the 20th anniversary of our 2nd album, Scenery & Fish. That album did some pretty damn good things for us and took us around the world. It went triple platinum here in Canada, with four singles released from it. That shit just doesn’t happen anymore. So… we thought we’d celebrate a little. We’re hitting the road with S+F 20 Celebrating 20 years of Scenery & Fish. We’re going to play the whole album front to back as well as a bunch of other stuff to round the night out. A nice long evening with your pals, The Mothers. We have other announcements to come that fall under the S & F umbrella so please stay tuned…We’ve been busy. Anywhoo, here are the first couple of shows announced, more to come. Yell if you want us. Friday April 22, O’Brian’s Event Centre, Saskatoon. Saturday April 23, Casino Regina, Regina”

Nickelback” start work on new album.

Yes, I know it’s the “in” thing to hate “Nickelback”, what’s the point though? How about just don’t listen to them. I’m not a fan either. I like “Foo Fighters”, “Big Wreck”, “Alter Bridge”, “Tool”, etc. There’s likely at least 5 haters for every fan of these bands.

I always get these 2 songs messed up. Just because they both have “rain” in the title. No Slayer’s not one of them.

I agree with him 100%. But nothing will change with anyone being mad about the current situation for musicians. You can’t have it all for the consumer or all for the artists, there has to be a balance to it so everyone gets something out of it.

If people want it & voted whine & cry about it all you want. If they didn’t vote better off not to complain, I’m not supposed to since I don’t vote, & I don’t really care about this current hot topic. I’ve tried it & I don’t want or need it.

I have nothing but respect for teachers! Most people have 1 teacher they will never forget. I have many, at least 5-10, including Mr. & Mme. Fletcher, Mme. Winter, Mr. Wilkinson, etc. So with nothing but respect for teachers, when was the last time you used long division outside of your job? I haven’t used it since University when I was in Engineering. Teachers tell you to learn this or that. What they’re really teaching you is how to continue learning once you have finished school & how to deal with what reality will throw at you.

I’ve been told it’s just random as to who’s cell phone this can be read on. Hopefully it works on yours??

Cassettes, Vinyl, &, CDs? There’s a reason the music industry switched to digital files. Convenience, doesn’t take up physical space & no worrying about an album getting scratched. More groups might be better off signing a distribution deal like Foo Fighters did? The problem with iTunes is that the rich/label get richer & the artist(s) get pennies for an album download. The music industry needs to figure something out fast or your new favourite artist won’t be around for long, unless they can afford to tour their butt off! It’s really a catch 22. They can’t sell enough albums to have money & they don’t have money to tour & get the word out themselves.

I’m waiting for a few albums that have yet to announce a release date/pre-order on iTunes. Third Ion, Into Eternity, Tremonti (already touring), Tool (in studio), Stone Temple Pilots, Barenaked Ladies (in studio), etc. Yeah, because I don’t have enough music on my iTunes as it is already only 1,353 albums!? Tough to listen to them all in a year. When Kim’s not here the home stereo is playing music she doesn’t like! If she is here it plays her music or something we both enjoy Dixie Chicks, Jack Johnson, Barenaked Ladies, Ben Harper, Paul Brandt, jacksoul, etc.

Lemmy won’t miss next show.

Lemmy doesn’t have a drivers license. If the car is moving it’s a stunt double. Lemmy is pictured in the close up shots.

Yes, I still exercise 5-6 days a week. I’m either doing walking with a walker, practicing stairs or my floor routine. My floor routine is typically what I do. I prefer to walk once a week in our underground parkade or practice stairs once a week in our condo. We also have a recumbent exercise bike in the condo workout room but it’s usually being used. My floor routine consists of 300 crunches in sets of 50, yoga for as long as possible & 40 push ups. Mondays & Fridays the push ups are difficult, I usually get to 15 at most on those days. I try to do 2 sets of 20.

Gotta say “Undateable” is HILARIOUS!

My mother came home yesterday from Arizona. I think everyone in my family thinks I’m an alcoholic? I’m not…………..no I’m not in a 12 program where denial is the first step or admitting I have a problem as a first step. Mom brought me 3 shot glasses. Thanks Mom, but I don’t measure other than to see if it’s roughly 2 fingers \m/. Is everyone trying to tell me I have a problem? I have roughly 20 shot glasses in the cupboard yet I have 0-4 drinks in total on a weekend? lol!

5:45am to early. Those memory pills are so fantastic I forgot to take my pills last night! I don’t like having to take certain medication at certain times. It’s free health care in Canada so I don’t need to worry. Every time I see my doctor he says “….we’ll start weening you off of this….”. I like that, but I know the pill I take for heart burn/acid reflux I’ll be on it for the rest of my life.

We were watching American Idol last night for me the show is like a bad car crash. I don’t like it but I can’t look away. They just eliminated the first person of the top 12. I’ve picked my top 4 already. Two of them might make it to the top 2. I don’t know if Canadians can vote for American Idol or not. I wouldn’t anyway, it’s a popularity contest. The cutest guy on the show with a decent voice will win. Because mostly young teenage girls watch the show & vote for their teen idol, the guy that will be on the cover of every teenage girl magazine or website. Don’t get me wrong they’ve got a lot of talent on the show & it will be difficult to pick the winner. When the winner is chosen it will be a teen heart throb that can sing country music. That’s the huge music market at the moment. I could be totally wrong, but I don’t think my top four could go all the way? Would I vote if I could? Probably not. In the end young teenage girls will likely choose the winner by “tweeting” which I don’t do. Most people have an email or cell phone, but not everyone is on twitter, facebook, linked in, instagram, etc. I’m not about to join a specific social media site so I can vote for a subjective competition.

I’ve got the “Paramore” albums (4) they’re great! Pop-punk sort of? Hard to describe.

This is the Radiohead stuff I love & the song “Street Spirit” isn’t as difficult to play/sing as it sounds!

Songs I like. I’m going to jump over a few that are on my iTunes but not on my iPod. I don’t delete stuff unless I find it absolutely terrible. “Chris Cornell” solo album (Soundgarden/Audioslave). I prefer his first of 2 solo albums. I don’t think this is even in the same ball park as Soundgarden.

Here’s one from his 2nd solo album
