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.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
