Friday ended with me slow roasting on the couch.  Until my father & cousin got here, so the 3 of us could go to the casino to see Barenaked Ladies!!!!  FANTASTIC show as usual.  They were my first concert in 1992.  I was not expecting to hear a pop music medley of many songs including, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber & many more, a death metal improvised rap, Violent Femmes cover, or a singer/drummer switch for the encore & a Led Zeppelin cover!  They played 4 or 5 songs from their new album.  Most of the show consisted of material from their first 3 albums, & a medley of cover songs.  If they’re coming to town, you know where I’ll be.  I don’t know if I’ve ever missed one of their shows in Regina.

Saturday was incredibly lazy.  Kim did some Christmas shopping with her sister.  I wasted 4 hours watching 2 terrible movies.  Thank goodness they were on Netflix or I’d be asking for my money & 4 hours of my life back!  All I need is the 4 hours back.  Then we watched “Wind River” if you like the movie “Fargo” I would say “Wind River” is a must see.  Similar story sort of, with much more dialogue.

I REALLY wanted to see this movie & it exceeded my expectations!

Sunday was the 2 of us sleeping in, followed by getting the house ready for our Christmas tree & watching the Grey Cup here!  The right team won, for me!  As long as Calgary, B.C. or Montreal isn’t in the mix, I’m as happy as can be!  Especially since Toronto beat my hometown Riders to get to the Grey Cup!  If we get dumped out of the playoffs, whoever beat Saskatchewan better win the entire thing.

Today is Christmas day tree & Kim has dropped hints about listening to Christmas music.  Well you have to listen to Christmas music when putting up the tree!  At least in my family!

Once the tree is done I’ll get to my top 10 albums of the year, only one metal album purchased this year, also a Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, & Queens of the Stone Age album.  Number 1 & 2 might surprise you.  Alas, I’m done purchasing music this year.

 

BARENAKED LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely the best Barenaked Ladies show I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They were touring in support of their new album ‘Fake Nudes’.  Which has some REALLY good songs, with typical BNL songs.

 

The concert was full of older/familiar songs with these 5 songs ^^^ songs sprinkled into the mix.

Then the show got really good/weird with some cover songs & medley of current hit songs!

They did a REALLY good job of this song with the drummer & singer switching places for the encore!

 

I’m biased though.  Take this with a grain of salt.  They were my first concert at the age of 12 in 1992.  All of that being said, I’ve seen them quite a few times but this was the best BNL show I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disappointing?  The site had 10 viewings by 6 people from Canada & Italy.  On Facebook we hit 59 views.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!  The low numbers tell me a possibility of 2 things.  Not many people are reading it or if you’ve subscribed it doesn’t count towards a viewing.  Again, I can’t make each post a winner!  Oh well.  As long as you’re getting what you’re here for, numbers don’t really matter.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Lullabies to Paralyze”

I exercised to “Portal” the album “Blood Red Tape”.  Tool & A Perfect Circle fans listen up!

They’re an independent band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

I’m here as much as I need a break from this thing!  I’ve upped my sets of pushups & I’m “exhausted”, & I still have stuff to do around the house.  Other than Mondays, I get excited & think to myself “Yay, it’s Friday!!!!!”  Then I snap back to reality & think “Ah, fudge sickle it’s Tuesday”.  Each day is a little more difficult than the day before & by Friday, I’m living on coffee.  Even on Monday I was tired, the only reason I got up was because I had to pee, or else I would have stayed in bed.

I look forward to the weekend as much as most people do.  I may not work a 40 hour work week.  Between exercise & stuff around the house, I keep myself pretty busy.  When Friday comes around I’m relieved that it’s the weekend.

 

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

Not much in the pop-culture news.  Some orange guy is hoarding ALL of the news.

 

Foo Fighters & Rick Astley?  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  AUDIO/VIDEO IN THE LINK

https://consequenceofsound.net/2017/08/foo-fighters-perform-never-gonna-give-up-with-rick-astley-in-japan-watch/?wasp=facebook-ads

Does this mean that Rick Astley is the surprise guest on the new Foo Fighters album?  One is Paul McCartney drumming on a song but they’re not letting anyone know who the second guest is?

 

Britney Spears covers Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to talk about”

At Fenway Park they always sing “Sweet Caroline” during the 7th inning stretch.  This is the best version I’ve seen!

 

I can’t wait for the new ‘Queens of the Stone Age’ album “Villains” on Friday.  I don’t sleep a ton.  I’ll see if iTunes has fixed the mistake on their end & grab it Thursday evening.  I preordered it on iTunes, but the second single didn’t come through for me.  I called the iTunes support line, they told me they had never seen that problem before?  Friday, I might be on the phone all day?

The album was produced by Mark Ronson.  The same guy that produced this little hit song.

 

Movies I’d like to see…

 

WOWY!!!!!!!!

But is it real?  Multiple re-writes & directors.  If it is real, get ready for the world to tell you how bad it was.  Like Batman vs. Superman, or Nickelback, everybody talks about how awful the movie or music is but both have made millions of dollars.  So who’s spending money on them?  I love Batman vs. Superman, & they have my money.  I have watched that movie at least 15 times!
