I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

I exercised to “Eve 6” all 4 albums on shuffle

I was the only male that went into the French immersion in Kindergarten at Massey elementary & went to Campbell Collegiate, across the street for French immersion.  All of the female students I considered & still consider them as sisters, like Rachelle, Kendra, Fay, Caitlin, Shannon, Stephanie, Jennifer, Vanessa, & probably more that I’m forgetting.  I didn’t have a sister, only a brother (a very good brother).  We may not talk much, but after all of these years I still feel like their brother, & I just want to protect them in a brotherly way.  They’re doing really good though, I don’t need to protect them, but I’m always here if needed.

Not to dilute the previous paragraph but all of my family, friends, & acquaints’ get that respect from me!  You’ve got it right away & it’s hard to have it revoked!  I can be loyal to a fault.  If you don’t feel as though I’m respectful, that’s on me.  I want those who know me to feel a sense of respect, no matter how you feel about me.

My younger brother (7 years between us) is a good guy.  One day, when we rode our bicycles to & from school.  Some elementary student wanted to fight me.  I was in high school, & wasn’t sure what I had done, I hadn’t said anything to this kid, I was just waiting for Mitch.  I got out of school 10 minutes before Mitch.  This kid, slightly older than Mitch, said he wanted to fight me.  To this day I have not been in a fight that I know of.  Mitch heard this kid, kicked him in the shin & said “DON’T HURT MY CHRIS!”

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

How Dave Grohl’s coffee addiction put him in the hospital for 2 weeks, a few years ago.  The doctor asked him his age & was surprised that he was even alive.

SOME/MINIMAL LANGUAGE AT THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The recent release by Foo Fighters was met with a mixed reactions.  I think it gets better with each listen!  Now I’d rank it as 4 out of 9 studio albums.

No more FF talk!

Yes, I bought an album that is pretty much a rap album.  Hear me out?  “Prophets of Rage’s” new/debut album.  I like Rage Against the Machine, this new album has 2 rappers instead of one.  Rage Against the Machine’s guitar player, bassist, & drummer. Then they did “Audioslave” with Chris Cornell, & now “Prophets of Rage”.

The rapping has never bothered me in “Rage Against the Machine” & doesn’t bother me with “Prophets of Rage”!  Honestly, “Audioslave” got old for me fast.  I have all 3 “Audioslave” CDs, but I end up going back to the “Rage Against the Machine” albums, 3 of the 4 I have.

What has been fairly consistent with the 3 band members is they have very strong political beliefs & it’s very apparent in their music.  “Audioslave” was a bit different & steered away from being so focused on politics.

The “Prophets of Rage” album was also released on September 15th same day as the new Foo Fighters album.  Of course I listened & continue to listen to Foo Fighters, but “Prophets of Rage” caught my attention as a very good album also.  I listened to it on Apple Music first to hear it first to see if the rap was manageable for me.  I thought I fit very well with the music!

I’d put a few more songs here but the rest of the album is full of language.  The 2 other songs with clean vocals are not on www.youtube.com.  I like this entire album, I can listen to it without skipping a song.  If you liked “Rage Against the Machine” this album is definitely worth checking out.

 

Kids react to “Led Zeppelin”.  I agree with the first kid’s reaction to “Immigrant Song” – YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

 

Sorry, I can’t get behind anything Gene Simmons says.

I don’t watch NFL football, I’ve tried and can’t do it.  I do love CFL football though.

I can tell you right now why NFL players are taking a knee during the anthem though.  They’re not dishonoring the flag, military (some were in the military) or country.  Most players are Black & also play on a team with Caucasians.  They’re taking a knee for the fact that Donnie is racist.  The Caucasian players are joining their team mates in solidarity.  I’m sure when Trump isn’t president they will stand for the anthem.

When he says a person is a “son-of-a-bitch” that’s fine, but when an American doesn’t stand for the anthem that’s disrespectful?  If you’re at or watching an NFL game & 7 people leave after the anthem, they’re still supporting Donnie!

Now I hear that the NFL is possibly changing the rules for Donnie.  Players MUST now stand for the anthem.  I’d just stay in the locker room until the game starts now.  I’ve stopped watching anything with Trump.  Now he’s ruined the sports talk show that I watch, what’s next?

 

Lamb of God released their first album, under the name Lamb of God, “New American Gospel” 17 years ago on Tuesday.  They released one album previous to this under the name “Burn the Priest” it’s terrible to me & many others.  Here’s one song from “New American Gospel”

“THE GOOD OLE’ HOCKEY GAME”

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing” a 34 song album?

I exercised to “The 1975” the album “The 1975” a 39 song album?

The NHL has become a terrible mess, & it just keeps going downhill. It’s very apparent to me that the commissioner has lost total control of the league. Does anyone know of fans in Tampa Bay, Phoenix, Nashville, Dallas, or even L.A.? He’s not responsible for all of these cities having teams. I have a hard time believing they can attract enough fans to a single game to merit the fact they generate enough money for the league. Now there’s whispers of a team in Las Vegas? Yeah, that worked out fantastic with there being a CFL team down there in the ’90s. I think most Canadians could do with fewer teams & some rule changes to boost offense, & less fighting. I personally would like to see NHL hockey pre New Jersey Devils’ neutral zone trap defense. NHL from the ’80s & very early ’90s.

I watch “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” everyday. He said that someone he knew offered box seats to numerous clients. Your own food, drinks, & washroom for FREE! The guy couldn’t give away free tickets to a Toronto Maple Leafs game & Toronto is where the hockey die hard fans live! That’s how bad it is in Toronto. I’ve never been to a regular season hockey game & right now that’s fine. Since the strike/lock out I’ve probably watched less than a full hockey game on TV. I’ve seen portions of probably 6 games since 2014? I miss NHL hockey from way back when, & nobody will come remotely close to Wayne Gretzky’s records for quite a while. Ah, when hockey was good!

Only a 20 game suspension for this?????? If I were dishing out the punishment it would be a lifetime ban from the NHL!!!! This is why I don’t watch hockey. Coach, maybe control your players?

I keep thinking I should get this album, I’m just not sure I’d listen to it much?

“Walk off the Earth” shared it. Other than my dad I don’t know of any other fans of their’s. I think just my dad & I are alone in this?

You said “Five Finger Death Punch” & “Disturbed”. I wasn’t planning on going anyways. I’m not into those bands. I liked “Disturbed” first two albums at the time in my early to mid 20s. Couldn’t really get into “Five Finger Death Punch”

COFFEE (& CIGARETTES)

I got up, had my breakfast juice, made coffee, & filled my water bottle. Wrote part of this post & went back to the living room. Somehow I dumped an entire coffee all over the place. You’d be amazed at how far one cup of coffee can spread! It was black coffee, I never put sugar or cream in my coffee. I had to wipe it up with a Swiffer wet pad after a bunch of tea towels. The house smelled like coffee for a bit, now it’s gone.

 

Fell asleep to “Meg Myers” the album “Sorry”. Woke up to this song in particular “I Mother Earth” the song “Meat Dreams” from the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

 

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Jamiroquai” a ‘Greatest Hits’ I made on iTunes mostly from the “High Times” collection on iTunes.

I’ll state this up front. The ’80s hard rock & metal in L. A. was not at all what I grew up on, or heard at that time. A few of these I do like!

Might as well stop bickering and doing thousands of scientific tests on GMO’s. Since the anti GMO groups have asked for another test, since the tests haven’t shown more facts supporting organic food?

http://licensetofarm.com/

Yes I had cancer, but “I’m still standing” I eat more vegetables & fruit than ever before. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been sick, & I don’t need 5 fingers to count it, so I’m pro GMOs. You eat what you want, & I’ll eat what I want. Don’t believe me, believe the farmers & scientists.

LANGUAGE!!

Long debate, close to two hours long, but worth watching. If you’re against it, that’s fine by me. What are you doing to prevent GMO usage?

We tried to grow corn in our previous garden. It had the texture of chewing gum. It could be that we did something wrong or that it was organic? I don’t which honestly? I do know we wasted time, a little money & threw out the corn after a few bites. In this debate, cheese & insulin for diabetics were the first GMO products used.

 

I hope this never happens, I don’t think the result would be good for fans, actors, Stan Lee, or JJ Abrams/George Lucas. Epic fail.
